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.

Sue, just found your posts about John and Elizabeth Hodge of Marion, SC. Their daughter, Dorcas, is my great-great grandmother. Do you have any information on her? I am trying to determine if she was married and/or had a child with a Charles Westly Lovell. In the 1860 census the spelling is "Lovit", but I'm certain it's her. I hope that you are still active on ancestry.com. My email address is email@example.com. Thanks!!
Looking for any information on Dorcas Hodge, daughter of John and Elizabeth Hodge. She is listed living at home with them in the 1850 census. In the 1860 census she is listed as D Lovit, still living at home.
Mell Smith is half brother to my grandmother, Essie Turner Hines. Essie was born 1907 & went to
Common school in San Saba, Tx. Mell (Melvin) brother, Walter Smith also brother to Mell had twin half sisters, Angus & Alice Turner & my grandmother Essie Veda Turner. Her mother, Lenora "May"
Turner married three times as was told by my grandmother. Lenora May Turner never knew her daddy as he died when she was too young to remember him growing up. May Turner then married Mr HOWARD WHO RAISED MY GRANDMOTHER ESSIE & family.(so May Turner married Smith, Turner, Howard). May Turner's maiden name was Lenora May Neal and her father's name was
James M Neal and her mother Mary M Hodges. If this is your connection, you can email me at;
I am looking for information on Lee Hodges. He is listed on the 1910 Craighead County, Arkansas census as the step brother of my grandfather, John Henry Obar. What I really am looking for is the parents of Lee. I am trying to find out if John Henry's mother or father was married to a Hodges.
I am looking for Hodges family members that came to CA about 1930 to 1940 from the Henrietta, Ok area. I know that you are there because of visits with you from other relatives in Ok that I have contacted there in OK.

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.
Hello, I am a relative of Fr. Hodges. I have his memorial card with picture and info on the back. I'll try to upload here for you or you can email me, I'm having trouble with the upload. It's a card that sat unknown in our family history box until my mom gave it to me last year to add to my tree. My family settled in Alberta after my great grandfather left Glengarry county. 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.
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.
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?
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.
Are you still looking for information on Alpheus? I've done some research on Churchill, and I think the connection is possible. The main problem is that before 1850 the US census only listed head of household, with everyone else as numbers. If he took off in 1949, he wouldn't be on the 1850 census. The 1840 census shows CA Hodges as having 21 people in his household (not too surprising if he was running a hotel in Richmond, he's loaded up with people in the 1850 census as well). In Apheus' category (males aged 15-20) there's 3 listed, so it is possible.
Also, in the 1860 census, CA Hodges had moved from Richmond to Washington DC. While not exactly the same place as Alexandria, they're only a few miles apart, and since the 1860 census lists him as a laborer, and no longer a hotelier, it's possible he moved around some in the area. That 1860 census is the last record I've found of him so far.
Also, here's a fun article on Alpheus from 1993.
I believe that Francis Marion Hodges was the son of Peter B Hodges and Mary Page. There is a handwritten marriage certificate for Francis and Francisce Ferra which names him as the son of Peter B. and Mary Page. Peter died before the 1850 census and his widow is listed in Washington, MO , with many children, including Frank, age 12. I believe that this is Marian Page. I believe the Peter who married Burt and Calaesie was a different person. I have some documentation which I will be happy to share. You can contact me personally. Charles
