Biography of Mrs. Margaret O'Dell (w/o Ebenezer)
Wayne County, NY Biographies





O'Dell, Margaret, was born in the town of Rose. Her father, Russell Winchell, came to that town in 1821 when it was but a wilderness without roads, making their way by marked trees. He married Lucinda, daughter of David Ackerman, by whom he had four children: Margaret, David A., Clarissa, and Betsey. He died in 1858 aged forty seven, and his wife in 1879 aged sixty four years. Margaret, our subject, married Alexander Harper, and in 1855 came to the town of Galen to reside. They had three children: Lydia S., Bud A., and Lucinda, Lydia S. Kelsey being the only one now living. Alexander Harper died in 1871, and Mrs. Harper married in 1884 Ebenezer O'Dell, who died in 1889. Our subject has one of the model farms of Wayne county, raising fruit, hay, grain and stock, and through life has been a member and liberal supporter of the M. E. church of Clyde.
