Marriage Records Vigo County, Indiana 1840-1920, Book 2, Pg. 455 shows:
Joseph M. Oder to Mary Peoples 16 Sept 1861.

1900 Census
Taken: 2 June
Vigo, Harrison Township, Indiana
Ed.# 124, Sh.# 2, Ln.# 29

Oder, Joseph M., born Sep 1834, age 65, Carpenter, born Ohio and parents born Ohio.
Oder, Mary, born May 1842, age 58, born In, father born Pa, mother born Ohio. Mary shows she had 1 child, and 1 child living,which I believe is incorrect. She most likely had at least 3 children with Joseph.
Oder, Frank S., son, July 1875, age 21, born In, father born Ohio, mother born Indiana.

Frank S. appearing above was born 7 July 1875, according to his World War 1 Draft Registration Card and he names his father as Joseph Morrison Oder living at 23 S. 2nd Street, Terre Haute, Indiana.
Frank S. married Martha M. Danford 28 Sep 1903 in Vigo County, Indiana.

Any of the above sound familiar to you?
