I just began looking into my ancestry last year so I am a novice at this but I believe I am a direct descendant of the Jeremiah Odell you mention.  I trace myself to be Jeremish's direct 4th great grandson.  My name is Paul David Odell.   Jeremish had a son Jeremiah who had a son Jacob Ellis who had a son Stewart George who was my great grandfather.   I visited Jacob Ellis' and Stewart's graves for the first time in my life this past May 2017.   I am not sure but I believe Jeremish's (b. 1761) father to be Elijah Odell (b. 1732 or 1738?) who was the son of Samuel Odell born 1690 who was the son of Samuel born in 1663 who was the son of William II who was son of William I, who immigrated from England during the Great Migration.  In William's case I believe he come over on the Susan and Ellen in 1638 or 1639.   He was one of the original settlers of Concord, MA.   I do have nore exact info on dates and names.  

This is more than you want to know but I have tried hard to get this correct.  Sincerely, David
