Online Auction Description

United States 1971 issue, Scott's catalog # 1444 8¢ multicolored 1971 Christmas Issue, depicting "Adoration of the shepards" by Giorgione. Precancel: Odin, Ill. This stamp almost got thrown away due to the spots on the front (clearly seen in the scan), which could probably be washed off, fairly easily. However, then I noticed that this was a precancel from Odin, Illinois, a tiny village. Since this was only used for Christmas 1971, in such a small village, this stamp would have to be extremely scarce.

Odin, Marion County, Illinois, United States
(located in South-Central Illinois)

Geography:

According to the 2010 census, the village has a total area of 1.00 square mile and a population of 1,122.

Thomas Deadmond, a Virginian, was Odin Township's first settler. He arrived in the timber in the southern part in 1827. The season was well advanced. He erected a shed-home with the roof slanted toward the North and the south wall left open. a log fire afforded warmth and a cooking area.

Silas Barr came to the township in 1829. Two years later he entered the first tract of land in section 27. Soon his brother James N. Barr came from Tennessee. This was the father of Oliver Barr and grandfather of Hobart Barr.

Samuel McClelland settled in 1830 near Silas Barr. Three brothers by the name of Wilburn settled here at an early date. James Adams, Thomas Pigg and John Hill were early settlers and were respected for their honesty.

Early business establishments included A. M Woodward General Store; J. M. Dace Confectionery; S. D. Phillips Drug Store; Hurd and Harroun Implement Shop; E. E. Hudson Paint Store; Eccles Brothers Bakery, E. A. Parks Jewelry Store; C. F. Krodell General Store; Scott Davidson Livery and Grains; C. O. Stanford Clothier; Wilson Dace Jeweler; Lewis Print Shop and Odin Newspaper; Barber Shops of Walter Turner and Charles Arrowsmith; Odin Bank with W. H. Farthing cashier; Tot's Hat Shop; T. H. McClelland Real Estate and Insurance; the Virginia, Moddy and Kellar Hotels. The blacksmith shop operated by Henri Soulon.

SCHOOLS:

The first regular school house built of logs stood near the McClelland graveyard. Odin School was held in the Smith Hall at one time for extra room, another time in the Schumaker Building, then later about 1898 or 1899 extra rooms were in the Presbyterian Church which stood a block west of the main school, still later in the wooden frame building across the street to the west. The average wage paid to teachers was $12.00 per month.
