I have two Hodges branches: 2nd Great grandfather William T. Hodges b.1814 in Virginia d. 1844 in Hardin Co. Kentucky AND Eppie Hodges 1814-1854 in Kentucky, who married my 2nd Great Grand-aunt Martha Ferguson (1818-1900). I can not find a previous line for either one. The connection is: William T. Hodges' daughter Mary Ellen marries Martha and Eppie's nephew Colgan Ferguson.

Hello Shelley,
There were Alexander's married into the Parker family which will come out in my Brown Descendancy Chart on 01 Nov 2016.  There was a David Alexander who died in 1773.  I don't know if he had a family, but the Alexander family had descendants which I have not fully explored yet.I won't be surprised if this David W. Alexander is not a descendant of that Old American family.

Subject: [HODGES] ALEXANDER - HODGES Family Photograph

I've "rescued" an old photograph of David W. ALEXANDER who was the 3rd
(1856) and 12th (1876-1877) Sheriff of Los Angeles County, CA. The
photograph appears to be a copy of a photograph likely taken when he was in
his 50's or 60's. Based on limited research I was able to locate the
following information regarding David and his family:



David Watt ALEXANDER was b. 23 Jun 1810 in Ireland.  David had two brothers,
George C. ALEXANDER (b. 1816); and Henry N. ALEXANDER.  David married
Adelaida JOHNSON (1830-1922).  Together they had 6 children including,
Martha ALEXANDER LAMB (1865-1932); Joseph Workman ALEXANDER (1870-1965);
Samuel Temple ALEXANDER (1872-1944); Agnes or Agnus Wiley or Wylie ALEXANDER
HODGES (1875-1967); Elizabeth ALEXANDER (1887-1928) and Lalla S. ALEXANDER
(b. 1881).  David died in Wilmington, CA on 29 April 1886 and was buried in
the Evergreen Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA.



Census records provide the following information:



1870 census of Wilmington, CA:



David W. ALEXANDER, age 60, a Merchant, born Ireland

Adelaida ALEXANDER, age 35, Keeping House, born CA

Martha ALEXANDER, age 5, at Home, born CA

Re: Dees/Deese-Merritt Connection

Hi Ginny,
I just saw this 2006 post from you and I am a Dees descendant. I would love to share info on the Dees family. My gggg-grandmother Sallie Dees married Simon Smith in Burke Co, GA. They migrated from GA to north of the town of Gordon in today what is Houston County, AL. It was Henry County during their lives. Sallie died in the 1820's and Simon in the 1830's and both are buried on the old Simon Smith plantation lands along the Chattahoochee River east of hwy 95, area between Columbia and Gordon, and south of the power plant. I have not been able to determine if my Sallie was the daughter of DeWitt Dees but we think this is her father. Do you have any info on the Dees that came from GA to the Henry/Houston county areas of AL in the early 1820's? I know I am definitely a descendant of Emanual Dees (1700-1770) and wife Elizabeth. They had the following children: Drury 1725, DeWitt 1738, Daniel 1740, Hannah 1742, Priscilla 1744, Susannah 1746. I have a DNA match to several descendants of Priscilla Dees Hatcher (wife of Robert Hatcher). I am assuming I descend from DeWitt because Daniel and Drury didn't make it to GA. Per his Will, Daniel had no daughters. Any info that you can share with me would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Seeking info on Stovall family from Kerens, Texas

Henry County - Thu, 08/04/2016 - 22:47
Hi Joe Ella,
I hope this message reaches you. My great, great grandfather was named Benjamin Franklin Stovall (born 1824; died 1910). He lived most of his life in Louisiana. I was thinking after reading your post, that there may still be some relationship. I have traced many of Benjamin's descendents to Texas. Benjamin's wife was Emerline and she was 15 years younger. I am sure there is a reason both of these men were named Benjamin Franklin Stovall.
