There is a small family plot on my farm in Central Kentucky. The area has almost been reclaimed by nature. Most of the stones are marked by rocks but one is a commercial stone. It is inscribed Philp A(I believe A) Hodges, April 7 1856-Mar 17 1864, son of MM and J Hodges. I'm sure the parents are Morton M and Jane Hodnet Hodges, with Morton being the son of Fleming Hodges and Elizabeth Powell. Unfortunately, I also believe the 1860 Census is inaccurately transcribed as "Ross" rather than "Philip". I would love any information on what may be a Hodge family cemetery, and any methods to determine who else may be buried there. Old maps of the county show a number of Hodges and Heaths (inaccurately transcribed as Hotts) in the general area. I also know that some of the Heath's and Hodges married and moved to Colorado. Any suggestions are welcomed.

James T. Hodges is my great grand father. He was born in Alabama in 1827 and died in Nacogdoches, Texas in 1905. He married Mary Ann Crenshaw in 1848. I would very much like any information anyone has on his parents and/or siblings.

I am looking for information on my 3 great grandfather, William Hodges, Jr. So many stories are out there about why he stayed in North Carolina and his wife, Sarah Jane Morris, left the state with all of their children which included Mary Margaret and William's brother John Hodges, who married her sister Frances "Fanny" Morris.
I actually have two different Hodges lines. The one on my mother’s side of the family has been traced back to John W. Hodges (Hodges) 1620-1697. The line on my father’s side begins with him, Russell Dee Hodges 1929-1985, and has been traced back to Isham Hodges, 1763-1839. Hopefully, I can find some relatives with more information!
I am descended from Wm. H. "Buck" Hodges b 1799 d 1892/3 who married Dorcas Cunningham b 1789 d 1848. Is anyone working on this line?
My great grandfather is Francis Leroy Hodges born July 22, 1844 at Big
Rick, Ill. He married Mary Margaret deLorimier April 23,1867. Mary was daughter of Sarah Frances Hempstead and Louis Gonzague deLorimier. Mary was born Jan. 12, 1845 at Dubuque, Ia and died Feb 22, 1886 at Clayton, Ia.
Does anyone know of a green hard bound book published on Hodges family. My Mother Wilma Van Brocklin Sukup used to have a copy and loaned it to a family member. It did not get returned. Would be interested in purchasing a copy. It wasn't too thick.
