Hi...thanks for the info. I am Rosa Estelle Wright and Hugh Gordon Land's Grandaughter. My father went to school under the name of his Stepfather, Milton Polster. I have been told that William Morgan was a cousin of Brigadier General Daniel Morgan of the "Battle of Cowpens." My DNA family trees from Ancestry seem to support that, as the matching people descend from Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Still can't find the direct link, but I suspect that his father may be Charles Morgan.

I bump into your family with Alma Lois and William Thomas Wright. Rosa Estelle Wright's brother was Harry Andrew Wright (there were 6 siblings total), who is my grandfather.

I don't know much more about Euclid - I agree with your assessment that he's likely the same Euclid that died in the steam explosion, but I'm having trouble explaining how part of the VA 9th cavalry ended up manning a steam ship down in Florida when the rest of the 9th was fighting in northern VA.

As for Catherine, I don't know much. The 1850 census was interesting to me
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-11073-91123-59?...
It shows the wife of Churchill A(nderson) as "Catherine" and his children are listed as "Catherine A, Rosemond, and Euclid". So apprently Rosa/Rose's full name is Rosemond, but she probably hated being called that.

Let's see, what else... Churchill was a hotel owner in Richmond in the 1840s and 1850s. There's another possible son of Churchill's I'm researching at the moment named Alpheus. All the dates and places line up, but there's no smoking gun yet. Alpheus is interesting, He graduated from medical school in Richmond in 1844, sailed to CA in the gold rush, became the first mayor of Los Angeles in 1850, came back, and died in Alexandria, VA "at his father's house" in 1858.

Oh, and another odd one, I found a random record of Alma Lois that lists her as Alma Lousia. If that's her actual name, that a funny one, because my mother is named Lois after her.

I'm trying to find more on William Morgan who married Mary S. Wedderburn. I can't get past him in that lineage, and my whole family wants to know more up that line. The Wedderburns seem to go on forever, but the Morgan's stop.

What is your source that states his father may be Churchill Anderson Hodges?

BOOM! I just did a couple hours of digging and deductive reasoning that culminated with a phone call to the Tompkins-McCaw Library of Virginia Commonwealth University, who confirmed that an A.P. Hodges is on the records of the Medical College of Virginia (founded in 1939) as having graduated in 1844.

Also, if he's C.A.'s son, his siblings were born in 1832, 1835, and 1839. His mother would have been born abt. 1805, so she would have been 19 at the time. It all seems to line up.

Are you still looking for information on Alpheus? I've done some research on Churchill, and I think the connection is possible. The main problem is that before 1850 the US census only listed head of household, with everyone else as numbers. If he took off in 1949, he wouldn't be on the 1850 census. The 1840 census shows CA Hodges as having 21 people in his household (not too surprising if he was running a hotel in Richmond, he's loaded up with people in the 1850 census as well). In Apheus' category (males aged 15-20) there's 3 listed, so it is possible.

Also, in the 1860 census, CA Hodges had moved from Richmond to Washington DC. While not exactly the same place as Alexandria, they're only a few miles apart, and since the 1860 census lists him as a laborer, and no longer a hotelier, it's possible he moved around some in the area. That 1860 census is the last record I've found of him so far.

Also, here's a fun article on Alpheus from 1993.

Re: George, Martin, and Peter Hodges (Early 1800's)

Genealogy Board - Wed, 01/14/2015 - 04:31
I believe that Francis Marion Hodges was the son of Peter B Hodges and Mary Page. There is a handwritten marriage certificate for Francis and Francisce Ferra which names him as the son of Peter B. and Mary Page. Peter died before the 1850 census and his widow is listed in Washington, MO , with many children, including Frank, age 12. I believe that this is Marian Page. I believe the Peter who married Burt and Calaesie was a different person. I have some documentation which I will be happy to share. You can contact me personally. Charles
