Throughout the centuries your name, Hodges, occurred in many records, manuscripts and documents but not always with your exact spelling. From time to time the surname was spelt Hodge, Hodges, and these variations in spelling frequently occurred, even between father and son. Scribes and church officials, frequently spelt the names phonetically. As a result the same person would be recorded differently on birth, baptismal, marriage and death certificates.

Need help in identifying this Oates. Are his law papers from around 1870s located any where?
Thanks for your help.
Good evening, I know this is an old thread but I'm looking for some information. Bama Spann was my great grandmother so I guess that makes us cousins. My grandmother was Susie Bell Spann.
I was told by my father before he passed away that Bama Livingston was Cherokee Indian but that there was no paperwork to prove it, due to a courthouse fire that destroyed the records. I saw on the 1940 census that she was listed as white, so I'm curious if this was just a "tall tale" handed down? I am not close with that side of the family and have seen no pictures.
Thanks for any information you might have about my (our) family history!
Is anyone here a descendant of the Calloway family in Henry County? I'm specifically looking for a direct descendant of Enoch and Martha (McMath) Calloway and/or their son John Lawrence Calloway.
Looks like they would be son and daughter in law of William Burrel Norris from Isle of Skye, Scotland. Email me at email@example.com and maybe i can help some more.
I descend from Hester Keels b. 1836 in Sumter Co. SC. Hester Ann is listed in the household of John Keels age 65 (b. ca 1785) on the 1850 census of Sumter Co. SC. This appears to be a blended family. Several members of the household were in Henry Co.AL .before1860. Hester married Reubin Wright in Henry Co. AL and her sister married a King then a Money. .
After the War, Keels, King, Money & Wright families moved to Texas..
I found that you have a Vause family on your tree, The Vause family also from Sumter Co. SC lived across the road from me in Huntsville. TX. when I was a child. I have Word documents that I will share.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org .

I am searching for a photo of my Great Grandfather Corneilus (Neil) Hutto. He had a son Thomas Abron b. 1876, George Washington b. 1873. Daughters Pet b.1879, Mattie (Mae) Hickman, Jennie Flemming b. 1883. If any of these families reads this and can put me in contact with them, please let me know. There were no pictures of him in our family photos.
Thank you so much. What are Wylene and Shelby last name?
Your grandfather, Barney, had a brother George W. who had a daughter, Hattie Mae "Jiggs" who married my uncle William Shelby Whiddon. Shelby and Jiggs had two daughters, Wylene and Shelby Jean. You might contact them. They live in Newville, Alabama.
I am searching for any family members of Corneilus (Neil) Hutto. He was the son of Daniel Hutto. Corneilus was my Great Grandfather. I have been searching for any photographs of him. My Grandfather Barney Hutto did not have any photos of him. Maybe someone out there knows of someone who knew of him. He died in 1940. Anything anyone can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
If you are directing your inquiry at Steve Elliott, he is deceased.
I am searching for a missing ancestor(Thomas J Averett) that living in the area near Walnut Grove cemetery east of Haleburg, AL. Our ancestors were the Penuels who owned that land in the 1860s. Your article is so full of information and I would just love to learn more from you about this cemetery and area. Do you know anything more about who is buried there? Are you willing to talk with me by phone sometime? I hope you might have time for me as this is by far the most insightful report about that cemetery and you have knowledge that I am so excited about.
Thanks very much.
