  • Notes 
    • Note: A little problem with Sophronia Odom's age. On the 1880 Graham Co., NC census, she is listed in her father's household, age 31 -- birth year 1849.

      When she and Thomas were married in 1883, she gave her age as 28 -- birth year 1855. (Notice that's the same age given by Thomas, and that she got three years younger instead of three years older.)

      On the 1910 Cherokee Co., NC census, she is listed as age 64 -- birth year 1846.

      Do we have the typical female "I'm not admitting how old I am?" And is she getting more honest as she gets older? Was she really born 1846?
