No longer orphaned Quaker profile with Welsh origins - unintegrated O'Dell family

+3 votes
Any familiar with whether the O'Dell lines have been entered? I've just started piecing this together.
Hopefully, the scanned photo of part of the text is within fair use.

Since that book was published in 1995 and the image is the full entry for one person, I would consider it outside of fair use. Fair use is typically one paragraph or quote from a longer article.

I did a search for a free-space page for the book and didn't find it. I did, however, find that GoogleBooks includes the pertinent section in one of their snippets. I would create a citation which included a link to that image.

Thanks for giving me probation. cool 

I think the 1995 publication might actually be a re-publication of an original volume, but I'm not for certain. It would actually be more reassuring to know that O'Dell was closer in time to the activity, especially without having laid eyes on the quality of the source citations apparent by footnote #s, which are in the hundreds.

The Google Book snippets are very non-exact, as it zooms to Evan Jr - who by the way, I ran across yesterday in a disconnected duplicate, which I remembered because I was all excited having found Albenah, whom I thought for sure would have been documented, and a rare enough name that backing into the line would be made easy..

In a related-ness matter, not only are these Quaker folks interesting for their settlement activities, but also:

: Evan (ca. 1630-1690) is the ancestor of both:

:: Ginger Rogers, (via his daughter Sara ca. 1666-1756) - although downstream, his granddaughter Ellin Pugh's connection is needing documentation

:: Meryl Streep, (via his son Robert ca. 1658-1738) - can't remember where the proofs became sparse, but I will revisit them (for both of these notables) once I get the ancestors and their immediate family more firmly proved.
