Chris: I understand your frustration about not finding your ODDY master
shoemaker in any directory listing. I have had the same problem with my
William PLUMPTON, b. @1787. He listed himself as "master cordwainer"
(shoemaker) in the 1851 census but is notwhere to be found in any
directory that I have searched to date.

It is possible that some of these shoemaker/cordwainers only worked out
of their home and had no business address and/or could not afford a
listing in any directory.
