Hi Gerald,

My dad (Wallace Dale Hodges) moved to CA from Purcell around 1940 which isn't too far from Henrietta. His parents were Wallace "Lennie" Hodges and Mary Kitchens; and his brother Kenneth Marvin.

Dad is 85 and doing well...and still in Thousand Oaks! Dad has been very interested in Genealogy for many years and has assembled the Hodges/Kitchens information back to the 1700's. Our family history will be falling into my hands and I'm going to be adding everything he's found into Ancestry at some point.

Hope this helps!

Elizabeth Sadler Hodges Jordan

Virginia Beach - Betsy Jordan, born Elizabeth Sadler Hodges, died on April 11, 2015 from cancer. She was the daughter of Edward Twyman Hodges and Elizabeth Sadler Hodges. Born on Staten Island on Sept. 5th, 1937, Betsy grew up in Norfolk, Va. Her mother died when she was 12 and her father later married Ruth Land Braun. Betsy had a sister, Susan Marshall and two brothers, Robert (Bobby) Hodges and Edward (Buddy) Hodges.

Upon graduation from Maury High School she moved to Wash., DC where she met and later married Robert Jordan. They had five children, Susan, Sam, Joe, Andy and Rachel. Rachel died just a year ago after a long and courageous battle with cancer. After living in York, PA while their children were growing up, Betsy and Bob moved to Va. Beach.

Betsy enjoyed doing volunteer work wherever she lived, including reading to the blind and working in the Virginia Beach health clinic. From an early age, Betsy loved reading, taking walks and the last few years she developed a great deal of enjoyment and benefit from yoga....particularly the friends she met there.

During the last weeks of her life, Betsy was surrounded by her family and close friends. She loved us all through that very difficult time as she had her whole life. She will be greatly missed.

Nancy A. Hodges

Norfolk - Nancy Kathryn Agee Hodges died on February 15, 2015, at Harbor's Edge in Norfolk, Virginia.

Born in Portsmouth, Virginia on January 23, 1926, she was the daughter of Nelle Counts and James L. Agee. She graduated from Cradock High School and attended the College of William and Mary. Among Nancy's survivors are her husband of sixty-five years, H. Leon Hodges; her daughter and son-in-law, Kathy and Kemp E. Savage, III; her son and daughter-in-law, John L. and Nancy Hodges; sister-in-law, Joan Agee, and brother, Joseph S. Agee, Sr.

During her lifetime, doing unto others brought Nancy immeasurable pleasure and satisfaction. She faithfully participated in the ministries of Oak Grove and Great Bridge United Methodist Churches and volunteered in various community organizations. The ministry Nancy most cherished was her vocal participation as an alto in the Chancel and Sonshine Choirs. Among the other talents she unassumingly shared were her culinary expertise, love of entertaining in a warm and gracious manner, and arranging homegrown roses for friends and family

A service to celebrate Nancy's life will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 20, 2015, at Great Bridge United Methodist Church officiated by Rev. Robert Garner and Rev. Tim Craig.

I am a relative. I have his prayer card from his burial Mass if you would like a copy. It has a nice photo of him on it. Very sad, a fine young priest who no doubt lived a great life serving others.

I'm happy to send you a scanned image of this card. Born May 15, 1917, ordained June 7, 1941, died July 15, 1953. Chaplain at St Joseph's hospital Kansas city, Missouri.

Re: Virginia/DC Hodges

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.

Re: Virginia/DC Hodges

Fri, 01/16/2015 - 01:40
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
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?

Re: Obituary: Alpheus P. Hodges (1824-1858) Virginia

Thu, 01/15/2015 - 21:20
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.
