My Missing Link

Genealogy Board - Tue, 11/03/2015 - 07:02
This information is what I've been looking for. You have answered my question. Gen. G.W. Hodges of Abbeville, SC was my GGGG Uncle, brother of my GGGG Grandfather Benjamin Hodges. Maj. John Hodges was my GGGGG Grandfather as was Richard Hodges Sr. my GGGGGG Grandfather. My father William Boyce Hodges compiled much of this information before his death in 1992, but there were some blank spots. My interest has recently been raised after the discovery of Maj. John and Gen. George W. belonging to the SC Militia which is now the SC State Guard which by some coincidence I just joined in August 2015 before this knowledge. Unknowingly the family has come almost full circle. From VA, SC, AL, MS back to VA were I was raised, I went to school in Raleigh, NC, met my wife from Charlotte, NC, and am now living in Waxhaw, NC. Your post has now provided me with the answer of the connection back to England.
Thank you!
William David Hodges

I'm J. A. Clark. Augustus Bartley Clark is my Great Great Grandfather so Kevin I guess we are cousins! I have an interesting bit of info and a mystery my family has been wondering for years. My grandfather told me that it was passed down to him that Augustus's brother, John Henry Clark, went off to fight in the Civil War for the South. He went missing in action and no one ever knew where or if he was killed, or anything about him. We can't even really find any records about his death or capture. Anyways, Augustus named one of his sons, John Henry Clark, in remembrance of his lost brother. To this day the name is still passed on, my brother is John Henry Clark IV. And we still live in Covington County, Alabama. On the same land that our family has owned for more than a hundred years.

Hodges of Dymock, Gloucestershire/Ledbury, Herefordshire

Genealogy Board - Fri, 10/16/2015 - 20:39
Looking for more info on the Hodges family of Gloucester/Herefordshire. My great-grandfather Arthur Hodges was born in 1861 in Ledbury and married Mary Tooby.. His parents were William Hodges and Margaret Lucy, both born around 1824 in Dymock. I'm trying to trace the Hodges line further back, William's parents were Benjamin Hodges and Comfort Goode, I believe Benjamin's parents were named John and Elizabeth, and Comfort's were Peter and Hannah.

There is a list of indexed cemeteries in henry County, You can look for him in the indexed cems.

You can contact the Henry County Historical Group, and ask if they have any additional info.

There is a list of historical books for Henry County at If you find a book that you're interested in, I'd look for it on Google Books or contact your local library about getting the book on inter-library loan. Successful Searching!

Re: Looking for info on McClung and Johnson family in Henry, 1900

Henry County - Fri, 09/18/2015 - 22:12

I didn't find her death info in several different databases. Death certificates were required in Alabama in 1908, however, in most states full compliance was several years after the mandate.

I'd contact the Henry County historical Group, and ask if they keep any kind of death index (sometimes organizations create their own death index from obituaries).

If she owned property, there will be a will and probate records. You can contact the Henry County Probate Court, and ask about a copy of those docs. Successful Searching!

Re: Mourning Hodge(s)

Genealogy Board - Fri, 09/18/2015 - 04:04
These would be my 3xgreat grandparents also. I've been searching and searching and cannot find anything after they move to Willow Hill, Ill.

I'm curious what family records you may have on them and where you may have heard that Mourning was an indian? Can you share more info with me.

By the way I believe Mourning was more likely born in Indiana.

Re: Marchant - Cooper

Henry County - Tue, 09/01/2015 - 16:41
I know this post a few years old, but I believe you asking about Martha Marchant (1829-1902) who married Eli Cooper (1826-1910). She is my 4x great grandmother. However, I've had a very difficult time finding information on her. I think she first married a John Williams in 1842 and then Eli in 1847.

Re: Adgerton Lock or Locke

Henry County - Wed, 08/12/2015 - 16:35
Hello Joy,
Looks like we are cousins. John Lock married Elizabeth Chandler on 29 Dec 1869 in Henry County. John was the son James Edgerton "Edge" Lock and his wife Jane. James was my Great great grandfathers brother. James Edgerton "Edge" Lock was the son of David Lock and his wife Sarah.
They are descendants of Leonard Lock who was from Ilminster Somerset England. Don't bother with any tree on ancestry that says Leonard was the son of Lewis Locke as that is incorrect.

The line for you would go like this.

James Edgerton "Edge" Lock (1802-1860)
David Lock (1775-1838)
Thomas Lock (1758-1808)
William Lock (1735-1758)
Thomas Lock Jr. (1713-1735)
Thomas Lock (1684-1739)
Leonard Lock (1658-1711)
George Lock (1622-1682)

Re: Kirkland - Smith

Henry County - Sun, 08/09/2015 - 22:44
I believe that William Riley Kirkland, b. 12 Feb 1814, is the son of Aaron Kirkland, b. 1780, SC and Catherine "Katie" Turkette, b. 1785, SC.

Aaron and Catherine also had a son named Aaron.

One of the challenges in the Kirkland family is that they had a tendency to use family names... lots of Aaron's, William's, James' and Thomas', just to name a few...

Happy digging!

Hi Anthony,

I hope you can help me. I've hit a wall at my 2nd great grandfather, John Lock(e), b. Aug 1851 in Alabama. The earliest information on him that I have is the 1870 census record when he resided in Henry Co., Alabama.

I believe he was married to Elizabeth M Jeffords. They had 4 children that I know of: William D., b. 1879; Mary F., b. 1882; Joseph Wilson, b. 1886; and Zack, b. 1891.

Their son, Joseph Wilson, b. 1886 d. ?, is my great grandfather.

Any information you can share will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
