The descendants of

Henry W. Odum, son of James Odum and Mary Thomas, was born on 10 Sep 1838 in Georgia, died before 1914 in Georgia, and was buried in Bethlehem Baptist Church Cemetery, Wayne County, Georgia.

Henry married Rosamond Summer, daughter of Holland H. Summer (or Sumner) and Elizabeth, about 1856.

They had nine children: Mary, Godfrey Washington, Leaston Van Buren, Joseph Allen, Nancy, William Kinchen, Enoch H., Barbara, and Stonewall Jackson.

There is a possibility that the second child, Godfrey Washington Odum, might be the son of Henry's brother, Issac Odum. Godfrey's 1927 death certificate lists both his parents as "unknown" and that information was provided by his son, Godfrey, Jr. This suggests that he may have been raised by someone other than his biological parents.
