Redding Columbus Hodges, Sr & Sons

Redding Columbus (Doc) Hodges  [28 July, 1890 – 20 Feb, 1965]

Doc was a carpenter.  He worked worked for the railroad repairing cars and then for the German American lumber co. (later changed to the Sherman lumber co.  The Sherman lumber co. also built ships and Doc worked in the ship yard.).  He was out of work in 1930 due to cancer on his hand.  The lack of money coming in resulted in his son Marvin leaving school and getting a job with the railroad to support the family.  Doc later returned to work and continued to work in the ship yard until his eye sight got too bad.

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.
