Good Day,
Sorry for any inconvenience, but I'm in a terrible situation. I came down here to Manila, Philippines for a program, last night on my way back to my hotel room I was robbed at gunpoint, my wallet and other valuables were stolen off me, leaving my passport and life safe. My luggage is still in custody of the hotel management pending when I make payment on outstanding bills I owe. I called my bank for a wire transfer but it has proven almost Impossible to operate my account from here as they made me understand international transactions take 7 working days to be effective which i can't wait. I need you to help me with a loan to pay my hotel bills and get my self home. I will reimburse you soon as I get back Home. I will appreciate whatever you can assist me with.
Let me know if you can be of help
All hopes on you.

Re: McCoy/Chapman of Henry County

Henry County - Thu, 10/16/2014 - 01:01
Hi, I am the great grand daughter of J.W. (James William) McCoy via his daughter Virginia Janie. You are correct Aunt Lina is Mary Emmaline (1879-1958). My grandmother additionally listed Lula Francis (1875 -1940), Docia Camille (1883 - 1972), Mittie Alice (1887 - 1904), William John (Uncle Bill) 1881 - 1955) and Evie Estelle (1885 -1890), I have J. W.'s Sacred Harp book the fifth revision of the Cooper book if you study Sacred Harp. W.R. McCoy (my great great grandfather 1856 -1928) was married to Virginia Antoinette Chapman (1856 - 1928) and was on the Cooper Revision Committee endorsing the book. All of the McCoys I name above along with my great grandmother and her children (to include my grandmother) were "strong voiced" sacred harp first attendance was at the McCoy Annual Singing which was once held at a place called Little Vine near Dothan. I could rattle on with stories, I saw and spoke with Aunt Docia at this singing in 1963...tiny little frail woman. I was surprised to find there is Indian heritage but I'm not sure if it is McCoy or Chapman in origin. Alabama has it's wills online and W.R. McCoy's will was probated. One of the public ancestry trees has pictures of W.R.'s children, I could not tell beyond that where the Indian Heritage came from but since they are all within the old Creek, Muscogee, and Seminole areas...I've been looking along those lines. They are a fascinating family and I was inspired to revisit my shape note heritage. Most any McCoy you see in a Sacred Harp book, will be related. Sorry if all of this is old news....I've only been doing this hit and miss until recently.

I think I can answer your questions on who Inez Carter, who married Costie K. Carter is - although by this time you may already know. She was the daughter of Isaac "Matt" Griffin who was married to Eldis Watford Griffin. I would love to obtain a copy of the newspaper article on Inez' automobile accident as not living in Alabama but Illinois I don"t have access to copies of local newspapers except that I do have an account with but their files only are filmed up until the 1940's.

Matt Griffin is the son of Charles W. and Missouri (mnu) Griffin who married in Barbour county ca 1869. Charles W. Griffin was the son of Charles S. and Evaline Smith who came from GA in the 1855-1859 period to Russell co. Al. I have a niece-in-law who loves genealogy as much as I do and we have been working on the Griffin family for several years now.

I am trying to help her locate her 3rd great grandparents the Griffins who also came to Al from GA ca the 1855-1859 period. I have lots of info on them and if you are interested or related to them somehow would be glad to share what we found on this particular line of Griffins. They have certainly been our brick wall but we have discovered lots about them along the way.

Please feel free to contact me anytime.

HODGES OF Baker County, Georgia

Genealogy Board - Fri, 09/12/2014 - 23:58
I am searching for the descendants of Lou and Sylus Hodges of Baker County. They lived in Baker County in the early 1800's and were enslaved on a plantation. After Freedom, the family disintegrated. Their children were Lillie Hodges, Eugene (Louvenia) Hodges, Bush Hodges, Lewis Hodges, Fannie Hodges, Sallie Hodges (1879), and Jim Hodges. Sallie Hodges eventually married Solomon Moses of Elmore, Alabama sometime in 1900 after their family relocated to Glynn County, Brunswick, Georgia. If anyone should have any additional history on the rest of the Hodges family of Baker County/Alma, Georgia, please leave me a message. Thanks!

Re: Oregon Co. Hodges

Genealogy Board - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 01:17
I thought I had sent a private email, but I guess you didn't get it. My 3rd-great grandfather William "Uncle Billy" Hodges was Angeline's father. William and his first wife (unknown) had 5 sons and 2 daughters. I am descended from the son James G. Hodges. After William's first wife died, he married Mrs. Nancy Seets/Seats on Aug. 26, 1849. Wm. and Nancy had the following children: Lucinda, Susan, Nancy, and Angeline. (Susan and Nancy were twins.) Uncle Billy was a prominent citizen of Alton, MO. He donated the land for the courthouse. Wm. was a farmer and a breeder of race horse. He often conducted business in Arkansas.

This has got to be the hardest family to find. Angline (Angeline, Angoling) Hodges was my great-grandmother. Married to Thomas M. Stewart. One of their sons, Val Stewart (b. 6 June 1866) was my grandfather, and his youngest son, Billy (actually spelled Billie) Val Stewart (b. 28 Jan 1926 d. 18 Dec 1990) was my father. I've been going NUTS trying to find anything on her!

Nancy Hodges Wood Dean

Genealogy Board - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 20:57
Looking for information on Nancy Hodges b. 1789 probably in Massachusetts. Married 1st Thomas Wood. Married 2nd, about 1824, Lazel Dean in Rhode Island. A Hodges genealogy gives the names of two children (Eliza Ann and Thomas N) to Nancy by Thomas Wood. I believe Nancy may also have had at least two children (William Henry and Charles Hodges) by Lazel Dean, but have been unable to verify this. William Henry Dean is my wife's 3rd great grandfather, born in December of 1824 in what is now Cranston, RI. Any information on Nancy and Lazel Dean would help.

Re: James Neal Hodges SR (texas?)

Hi there. I went to high school in Milford, Delaware from 1962 - 1967. I knew this family well. Dad was James Neal Hodges, Sr. He was associated with Lockheed - an engineer on the C5 Starlifter team at Dover Air Force base. Mom was Gloria Hodges. I do not know her maiden name but she had ties to Chicago. Very beautiful, very glamorous. Their only child was their son, James Neal Hodges, Jr. He was my boyfriend and then fiance. They had connections to North Carolina. Jim, Jr went to military college in Booneville, Missouri - would have been late 1960s through 1970 or 71. Jim, Jr broke our engagement and married a minister's daughter from around the Booneville area in 1969 or 1970. This family had ties to the military school there. They lived in Chicago a while with Gloria. Then I lost track of them. Good luck with your search.
