ODY

The Ody family, (married the Weber family), and the
Gies(en) family (married into the Magnus family).
Researched and contributed by descendant Mary Ferm

Descendants of Dionysos Ody
Born circa 1677, probably of Kastellaun, Rheinland




Generation One

1.  DIONYSOS1 ODY was born circa 1677; (based on estimated birth date of his daughter Johanetta).
     He died before 17 Nov 1717; [His daughter, Johannetta, was described as "Dionessii Odi relicta legitima filia" at a Nov 1717 baptism at which she was a godparent.  Another daughter, Catharine, was similarly described at a Jan 1719 baptism.].
     [Who was the Daniele Ody who in 1726 at Kastellaun was a godparent to Daniel Ody, son of Dionysos' son Johann Franz Ody?  On 15 Aug 1825, a Catharina Ody, daughter of defunctorum Mathiae Ody & Barbara Nick conjugum ex Sevenich, married Petrus Josephus Kohn. ]

     Children of Dionysos1 Ody and an unknown spouse were as follows:

   2.    i. JOHANETTA2, born circa 1698; married Johann Weber.

      ii. CATHARINA; born circa 1701 at Kr. Simmern, Rheinland, now Germany.
     She witnessed the baptism of her niece Catharine Weber on 26 Jan 1719 at Kastellaun, Kr. Simmern, Rheinland, now Germany; Godparents were "Annetta [?] Joe Cornelio civis, et virtuosa virg__ Catharina Odi relicta Dyonessi Odi filia __ ex Castellaun." Catharina was probably the baby's aunt, since Dionysis Odi was the baby's grandfather.
