DNA Results

Part 3 of my three part DNA test has confirmed that the Robert Hodges Sr line belongs to lineage VII on the Hodges Patriarch page. I would encourage any Hodges with a spare $100 to join the project and get tested too.

Two War Orphans

Elias Hodges (1806-1880), son of Lemuel Hodges (1770-1830), had several sons that fought for the CSA in the Civil War. One was Mathew G. Hodges. He was never mentioned again in any census after 1860 when he was living in Sumter Co, GA and is assumed to have died during the war.
His widow Elizabeth died 24 Jan 1863 in Henry Co. and is buried at Tolbert Baptist Church Cemetery leaving behind several children who we find living with their grandfather in Henry County, Alabama on the 1870 census. One of those children was David Wynn Hodges (1861-1937).
One of Mathews brothers, Wiley Hodges (1834-?), lived nearby in Schley, GA in 1860 with his wife Martha and his daughter Offeliner. Wiley joined his 8 cousins at Tolbert Church in 1862 in joining the 3rd Alabama Infantry Battalion (Hilliard's Legion).

That was the last mention of Wiley on any census. I had moved on to other research when I had cause to look a bit more for Wiley. I came across his name in a book, he was only mentioned once but that was a big help. In an article written by Paul Quattlebaum in 1947 for the South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine he states "Matthis Quattlebaum was probably born in Henry County, Alabama about 1836....He married the former Martha Ann Poe, relict of Wiley Hodges." Now that caught my eye because I knew Matthis Quattlebaum.Paul Quattlebaum listed his children in the article but oddly he didn't list his oldest daughter Orpha Lynn. Also as odd, on the 1880 census Orphas father is listed as having been born in Georgia, the other children have their father being born in Alabama.
I knew Matthis Quattlebaum was because he was the father of Orpha Linn. Orpha Linn married David Wynn Hodges and had 7 children, 6 of whom died before their mother.

Lemuel Hodges pedigrees

Here are a few alternate pedigrees for Lemuel Hodges who I consider my family's patriarch. I eventually settled on the last one. Mine doesn't have a much better chance being the right one than the others, it just has less errors (sons born two years after father, etc) and makes more sense. Ultimately pretty much all of them have us in Virginia with Robert in the early 1600's.
