  4. Hi. I was wondering if you had any divorce papers
    for Squire O’dell and Sarah “Sally” Hazelwood.
    He married Lucy Ann Slate in 1870 and it’s said that he divorced his first wife with whom he had 2 children. Thanks.

  5. We were not able to locate the divorce papers for Squire Odell and his first wife, Sarah Hazelwood. They did marry in Surry Co., NC in 1860. I could not find divorce papers or divorce proceedings in the court minutes for Surry Co. between 1860-1870. It may be that there are divorce papers or proceedings in another county, but I am unsure. Odell married his second wife, Lucy, in Stokes Co., NC and Sarah is listed on the 1870 and 1880 censuses as living in Patrick Co., VA.
