Visitors research links to Statehouse

-A A +A
By Linda Hanabarger

It doesn’t happen often, but from time to time, we have visitors to the Vandalia Statehouse whose ancestor served in the House or Senate during the years that Vandalia was state capitol.
In many cases, the visitor knows a little about their relative, but as happens in history, the connection to the political history of Illinois is all that is known about their time in the service of the state.
Earlier this year, Dave Odum visited the capitol and asked about his ancestor, Dempsey Odom, who served in the House and Senate from Williamson County.
