I have been searching for the parents of Rachel Deem who married William Odell for some time. I have suspected that she was the daughter of James Deem and Rachel Sargent, but no one seemed to have heard of her. Several weeks ago I put the name Rachel Deem on Familysearch. One of the returns I got on this search was a marriage of Rachel Deem and William Odell In Clermont Co. Ohio in 1848. I sent to Clermont Co., OH for the record. They sent me a copy of the marriage. Rachel Deem and William Odell who were married at the house of Jeremiah Deem in Union Township. They also sent a copy of a page from "Marriage Records of Clermont County, Ohio 1800 to 1850" The information was the same but the names were DEAN instead of Deem. I knew that Rachel had a brother named "Jerry"

I found Jeremiah DEAN in the 1850 Clermont Co., OH census. His wife was listed as Sarah who must be "Sally" Enoch.
But the real surprise was that Rachel, his mother was living in the next dwelling listed. She is listed under the name Rachel DEAN.
The listing is as follows:
Rachel Dean 59F
James G. 18M
Sackarissa 15F
Rebecca 12F
Francis M. 10M
Armanilla Clarke 28F
James W. Clarke 4M
All born in VA
I have also found in the book "Hamilton County, Ohio Court and other records" on page 25:
Deem, Jerry born 5 Jan. 1815, died 13 April 1896 Cincinnati, OH Parents James and Rachel Deem.
Hope this helps someone.
