    TOWNSEND
    Jimmie's paternal great grandmother Ava Rilla TOWNSEND ancestors and descendants.


    This is a partial chart of Jimmie Lee Oden Mercer's., paternal great, grandmother Ava Rilla TOWNSEND ancestors and descendants. We are searching for ancesters and descendants of Ava Rilla TOWNSEND. We do not at this time know her parents names.
    If you are willing to share, we would love to have the opportunity to learn all we can about your TOWNSEND family. We have found that this work is like a hugh jig saw puzzle. Other pieces of family history, such as yours, may shead light on our research in unknown and unpredictable ways and vice versa. We hope we may be able to keep in touch and share research information. Jimmie's paternal great grandmother is Ava Rilla TOWNSEND wife of John Alexander McDade and mother of Mary McDade the second wife of Enoch Walter Oden and mother of John Samuel Oden who is Jimmie's father, all of whom were born in or lived in Kemper Co. Mary MCDADE died June 19, 1888 five days after birthing John Samuel ODEN who was born on June 14, 1888. Mary MCDADE is buried in the Bay Springs Church Cemetery Kemper CO., MS next to C. E. MYERS b. 7/14/1826 d. 6/18/1888 the day before Mary McDADE's untimely death. C.E. MYERS is believed to be related to Ava Rilla TOWNSEND and perhaps is Mary MCDADE's uncle(?). The grave site makes it appear as if they may have been buried in a joint ceremony.
    Jimmie grew up in Kemper CO. MS and her CLARK-ODEN family home place in the Briggs Chapel Community between Porterville, MS and Boyd, AL., has been in continuous occupancy for over one hundred years.
    We hope this rings "cousin" bells with you. We look forward to hearing from you. Best Regards, Jimmie and Wesley Mercer Alpharetta, GA.
