Obituary of Nathan Odom, St. Petersburg, Florida.

Nathan Odom died January 9, 1915, at his home, in St. Petersburg, Fla., at the age of eighty-three years. He was born in Barnwell County, S. C., September 16, 1831, and became a citizen of the State of Florida before the War between the States. He enlisted in the Confederate service under Captain Dyer in the 52d [possibly 4th or 5th] Florida Regiment and participated in many of the hard fought battle, being severely wounded on one occasion from the effects of which he carried a rifle ball in his body for fourteen years. He was a brave soldier, a true friend, and a faithful member of the Baptist Church from youth. He was an active member of Zollicoffer Camp, St. Petersburg, Fla., and a regular attendant, proudly wearing his Confederate uniform. Comrade Odom leaves two daughters, his wife having died ten years ago.
