1). bobspu.ged m1. Hannah Marinda Lickliter m2. Eliza O Dell BIO Nathaniel was enumerated as one year of age on the 1850 census for Claiborne County, TN. By July, 1860, his family was residing in Laurel County, KY, where Nathaniel married his first wife, Hannah GUTHREY in 1868. Marriage records state that Nathaniel was 19 at the time of his marriage. He was a farmer a resident of Laurel Co. Both of his parents were born in Tennessee. The couple was married at William Lickliter s. There was a note stuck between the pages of the record book in the handwriting of E.J. O DELL authorizing his son s marriage to Hannah Marinda GUTHREY. The bride was 31 years of age this was her second marriage. Discovery that Nathaniel s father and mother were in Mercer County, IL in the early 1900s led compiler to examine the census records for that county in 1900 and 1910. Apparently Nathaniel married a second time, about the time of the 1900 census enumeration, since the response to No. of years married? was 0 for both Nathaniel and his wife, Eliza. She is listed as Wife on that census. No data has been found concerning this marriage, but per the census enumeration 23 June 1900 , Eliza was 68 years of age Nathaniel was 51. Nathaniel s occupation was listed as Day Laborer. Ownership of the home is recorded O Fowned free , indicating that either Nathaniel or Eliza had lived in the residence for a substantial period of time. Although there has been no documentation found to support it, compiler believes that she has found at least one son of Nathaniel O DELL s living near his grandfather, Elisha Jordan O DELL in Millersburg Township in 1900. Based on his year and place of birth as given on census, compiler has made the assumption that William H. O DELL, who was enumerated as head of his own household in Mercer County, IL in 1900 and 1910, is the son of Nathaniel and his first wife, Hannah LICKLITER GUTHREY. It is possible that this William was the son of Elisha Jordan O DELL, but Eliza O DELL, 81, widowed, born in SC is enumerated in William s householdin 1910. Her relationship to the head of the household is specified as Mother. She would actually have been William s stepmother, however, since she and Nathaniel were probably not married until about 1900. Compiler was unable to find Nathaniel onthe 1910 census, nor was his wife, Eliza, enumerated as head of a household. This is substantial evidence that the Eliza, ...Mother... in William s home was Nathaniel s widow. It is also strong evidence that Nathaniel died sometime between 1900 and 1910, probably in Mercer County. REF 1. U.S. Census 1850 TN Claiborne Co. 7th Subd.
