I am in the process of writing my fourth and fifth books. The fifth one is a book about my great granddad, John Wesley Odom and his brothers who were in the civil war. John Wesley Odom was in the I company of the 35th Texas Calvary under Col.James B. Likens.
One of his brothers was Richard Nollie Odom who was a nurse and cook. His life is an open book on the Odom Web site but I can't find enough about John Wesley Odom.
It seems as if I was born 100 years late because of my interest in that period.
