From Salem head north on Wallace Road (Highway 221). Turn west on Alderman. There is a Holbrook Farm sign across the street from the Alderman sign. Turn south on Webfoot Road and drive .5 miles. The cemetery is located on the west side of the road.
There is a broken down chapel in the cemetery named Ebenezer. The original chapel was built 1857. It was rebuilt in 1926.
There seems to be disagreement on the number of pioneers who are buried in the cemetery. One source says that 105 are buried, 49 in marked graves and 56 in unmarked graves.
The DAR information represented below was gathered in 1940 which stated that 67 pioneers were buried in the Odell cemetery, 49 with headstones and 17 without headstones. The last burial was in 1941.
The names followed by two asterisks (**) have no headstones, when I walked this cemetery in 2002 and come from the DAR reading of 1940.
The Odell Cemetery has no sign. The cemetery is unattended and is still in poor shape but I hope to work on it this summer, when I travel from my home in Washington state.
