If you are a Hodges or are married to or related to one please register and join right in. Please make a blog post telling us what your Hodges line is as best you can so we will know who we are talking too.
This is my understanding to date:
According to Southside Virginia Families Vol 2, Anne Branch ( daughter of George Branch and granddaughter of Christopher Branch) married Robert Hodges. According to John Harrell in his Hodges History, my 2nd ggf, Floyd Lemuel Hodges, was a descendant of this Robert Hodges.
Christopher Branch married Mary Addie
George Branch married Anne England
Anne Branch married Robert Hodges
John Hodges (died 1761) married Patience Joyner
Howell Hodges (DAR # 131350) married Elizabeth Cherry
Lemuel Hodges married Rebecca Blackshear
Lemuel Hodges married Vincy Martin
Floyd Hodges married Mary Ann Rebecca Whiddon
Margaret Susan Hodges married James Alexander Yance (great grandparents of Rex Yance)
According to The Royal Descents of 600 Immigrants (page 507) by Gary Boyd Roberts, Christopher Branch married to Mary Addie was a descendant of Henry I and was an ancestor of President Thomas Jefferson.
.1 Henry I King of England 1068 - 1135
Howell Hodges of Pitt County North Carolina who died in 1781 (DAR # 131350) was my 5th great grandfather. According to some websites Howell is shown to be a descendant (2nd great grandson) of Christopher Branch who died 1681 and is a Jamestowne Society Qualifying Ancestor. These same websites show Christopher Branch as a descendant (18th great grandson) of King Henry II of England and Ida de Toeni (Tosny) through their illegitimate son William Longespée, 3rd Earl of Salisbury. I would like to know if this true. If anyone has information pertaining to this lineage I would appreciate a response.
I am trying to find information about William Welcome Hodges, father to Samuel Harvey Hodges 1801-1832.
My grandmother was Annie Newell Hodges b. Apr.7, 1893 d. Mar. 2, 1990. She was the first person from Green County, KY to graduate from the University of KY. During WWI, she went to Washington, DC to help in the war effort, she was a clerk, but had top secret clearance, and translated German. While there she was a suffragette, and marched for the right to vote. At 35 she married William James Ashbrook and they had two children who both became doctors. Her father was James Carter Hodges b.9 Sept. 1861, d. 20 March 1933. He married Alice B. Hayden of Marion Co., KY. James C. Hodges father was Thomas P. Hodges, MD, his father was Samuel Harvey Hadges.
I have a copy of the family bible, and the family homestead, that was Thomas P.'s wife's (Catherine Francis Carter) family farm is still in the family. This line of Hodges is related by marriage to Elizabeth Washington Lewis of Adair Co., KY, George Washington's sister.
I'm trying to find information on which branch my Hodges may be linked to, if any...

I am searching for information on James B Hodges and Minnie B Hodges. The daughter of these was Dura Belle Hodges Daniel. They were from the Tallapoosa/Randolph County areas. James and Minnie were born abt 1860. Dura was born abt 1889. Dura married John Daniel. John died in 1933. Dura died in 1959.
I have had no luck in locating these Hodges and am at a dead end. If anyone has information for me it would be greatly appreciated.
I am also courious if it is possible that there is some Indian here.
Trying to locate my g-grandfather, whose name may have been Alfred, born in Petersburgh, Ga. My grandfather was a Wesley Hodges who was born in December 1863, supposedly in Georgia. He was married to a Lelia Deloach (pronounciation questionable). They had two living sons that I know of: Dewey, born March 1895-1898, and James, born March 1900.
As we are a biracial mix, it is really difficult to locate anything concrete, due to slavery. If anyone can provide any information, I would be appreciative. Alfred died and my g-grandmother remarried, possibly to a Thomas Hodges? Who knows...
Thanks for your help.
