I am researching the Odum family trail and a lot of the other families that married into this family. Some of the surnames I am working on are:
Odum
Gill
Leopard
Reynolds
Rambin
Laffitte
DeSoto
Yawn
Slacks
Prudhomme
Camp
Robleau
Elliott
Innerarity
There are several other families that I hope to gather information on in my quest to leave future generations with knowledge of who their ancestors were and where they came from. I also hope to offer answers to other researchers inquiries.
