1848 Odd Fellow of the Day Samuel Landrum


This page in the ledger book is dedicated to Samuel LANDRUM  There's a chance Samuel is related to William LANDRUM from a previous IOOF post.  Other names mentioned on the page are John MORGAN, Thomas HARRIS and what appears to be John L. UTTERBACK.  Entries cover the time period of 1848-1850.

On the off chance that they are the same person I am including the information I found in the 1850 Census.  Perhaps S. Landrum is Samuel.  Perhaps his 17 year old son William is the William I mentioned above.  Perhaps not though because he's only 17.  I have no clue  if there was a minimum age to become a member of the Oddfellows.  Anyway, maybe some of the information here will help someone else with their own genealogical brick walls.
