Re: Gresham Hodges family

Mon, 04/25/2016 - 00:21
Thanks for this posting. Gresham divorced Jane Leprade & married Elizabeth Blankenship Ward, Jan 8, 1879. In the 1880 census, there were 6 Ward children living with the Hodges. Elizabeth was a half-sister to the Ward children. The oldest, Josephine Ward was my Grandmother. The 4 youngest Ward children changed their names to Hodges, as their Mother died 1877 or 78. I can't find an exact death date. Evidently the Hodges raised them - I don't know - just assuming. Do you live in VA?

Robert, I called the # that you gave, but was told it was no longer in service; Anyway, I would like to get more info from you. Would you contact me again? I tried your contact, but couldn't connect. I think this Griffin Hodges may have been my Grandmothers brother.
Thanks so much.

Thanks, RoseMary;

Thanks for the info & could be related.

Re: Priest Robert Hodges from Watertown NY murdered in Kansa

Mon, 03/14/2016 - 01:57
Mrs. Hodges was a near neighbor and friend of my grandmother, Isabella Waghorn. Her son, Robert Waghorn, was a priest too. Bobs were friends. My Father Bob taught at Wadhams Hall Seminary. Father Bob Waghorn left the church back in the '50s, married Sally and they had 8 children. I lived in K.C. 1967-70 and learned of Hodges death (murder?) then. Always a mystery. Saw SPOTLIGHT yesterday and it made me think much of my past and the R.C. Church and their interesting ways of making evidence disappear. At the time I had friends at the National Catholic Reporter and as a result I still have access there. Want to go down that trail? Mary

Robert, My Grandmother had a brother that was named Griffin Ward. In the 1880 census, there were 6 Ward children living with Grissom & Elizabeth (Ward) Hodges. I've found where 3 of them had changed their names from Ward to Hodges, so possibly Griffin changed his, also. I have not been able to find any info on Griffin, except the 1880 census. I would like any info that you may know. Thanks

I forgot to say that Stephen Hayes changed his name from WARD to Hodges, also Eliza & Edna changed from Ward, as they were very young when Nancy died, & evidently Gresham & Elizabeth reared them.
