Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the author of the 400+ page book "Odom Oracle" covering 6 generations, from about 1815-post WWI years, of the Odom family from Middle Tennessee westward. Many of my contributions to Findagrave have been related to this book and the over 3000 family members mentioned therein. I have posted vitals directly from either death certificates or pictures of tombstones. I also wrote a true crime book in 2010 based on a 1916 murder in Cannon County, Tennessee, "Murder on Fodderstack Knob".

Presently I am working on a book about men who registered during the three World War I Draft Registrations. In addition to my own family gravesites I have also added men and families that are included in the veteran listings I am currently writing biographies about.

My husband and I live in Osceola County, Florida.

RE: Maggie Bell Wilkerson Fish
U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 also states Maggie as Maggie Wilkins Fish.

James W. and Martha's marriage license is listed under the name Wilkins. County historian states they went by Wilkins here in Smithville. Yet the SS app is writ in as Jim G. Wilkins. So it's all in who spoke and who wrote!

It's as confusing as my Thomason family! Thomason, Thomasson, Thompson, Tomson... and the list goes on and on. LOL

Maggie Bell Fish
Hello Sherrie, I don't know if I left a message long ago or not but I happened to wander to Find A Grave...

Maggie was my 2nd great grandmother and I'm wondering where you got your information regarding her birth and her maiden name. Do you have documentation stating her actual day of birth?

I have also been told by the local historian here in DeKalb County TN that her maiden name was Wilkins. Her father being James Wilkins and her mother Mary H. Jones. Would love to have/know your information sources.

Maggie went by "Mag" and Riley went by "Sam". Mag was a midwife here in Smithville for many years.

Thank you for bringing to my attention I hadn't updated my grandfather's information. I made sure to add the missing information as well.

Hattie May Wooden Keith
Hattie's mother was Mary Braswell, I edited the memorial to show that her father is James Wooden. I have not looked for her mother's tombstone, as there may not be one. James was married four times. Mary Braswell was his first wife, married on June 01, 1889 in DeKalb Co TN. His second wife was Isabella Eliza Robinson, they married on June 06, 1897 in DeKalb Co TN. She died about 6 weeks later, she had been married to Andrew Jackson Robinson (maiden name was Davis). The third wife was Molly Keaton, married on October 09, 1898. The fourth wife was Minnie Elrod married on August 15, 1903 in Robertson County, TN

I had him as single, never married because that is what the Tennessee Death Records showed. Made a note.
