This is my understanding to date:
According to Southside Virginia Families Vol 2, Anne Branch ( daughter of George Branch and granddaughter of Christopher Branch) married Robert Hodges. According to John Harrell in his Hodges History, my 2nd ggf, Floyd Lemuel Hodges, was a descendant of this Robert Hodges.
Christopher Branch married Mary Addie
George Branch married Anne England
Anne Branch married Robert Hodges
John Hodges (died 1761) married Patience Joyner
Howell Hodges (DAR # 131350) married Elizabeth Cherry
Lemuel Hodges married Rebecca Blackshear
Lemuel Hodges married Vincy Martin
Floyd Hodges married Mary Ann Rebecca Whiddon
Margaret Susan Hodges married James Alexander Yance (great grandparents of Rex Yance)
According to The Royal Descents of 600 Immigrants (page 507) by Gary Boyd Roberts, Christopher Branch married to Mary Addie was a descendant of Henry I and was an ancestor of President Thomas Jefferson.
.1 Henry I King of England 1068 - 1135
Howell Hodges of Pitt County North Carolina who died in 1781 (DAR # 131350) was my 5th great grandfather. According to some websites Howell is shown to be a descendant (2nd great grandson) of Christopher Branch who died 1681 and is a Jamestowne Society Qualifying Ancestor. These same websites show Christopher Branch as a descendant (18th great grandson) of King Henry II of England and Ida de Toeni (Tosny) through their illegitimate son William Longespée, 3rd Earl of Salisbury. I would like to know if this true. If anyone has information pertaining to this lineage I would appreciate a response.

This popular legislator was born in Sugar Loaf county, Choctaw Nation, in 1850,the son of Joseph Hodges, a white man, and Cebelle Wall, of the Koonchas and Imoklusha's. In 1868, in his eighteenth year, he was elected county judge of Bok-tuk-kal'o county, and two years afterward filling the unexpired term of circuit judge. This was followed by his appointment as revenue collector and succeeded by that of circuit clerk. In 1882 he creditably filled an unexpired term in the Council, and in 1883 was elected inspector of revenues. Before the lapse of two years he was elected to the House, and re elected four years in succession, in 1888 he went to the Senate with a large majority, and the following year was chief commissioner of the Net Proceeds Claim, nearly one million of money passing through his hands during the distribution. In 1890 he was once more elected member of the Lower House. On the adoption of the freedmen in 1885, the subject of this sketch was one of the commissioners.
This gentleman was born in Towsen county, Choctaw Nation, in 1859, the son of Joseph Hodges, a white man, and Cebelle Wall, a Choctaw of the Koonchas and Imok-lu-shas. In 1868 he went to school at Wheelock and left there in 1874, after which he assisted his father until 1879, when he embarked in the cattle business in Atoka county (first on a small scale) and afterward in creasing until he sold out in 1884, and purchased half interest in his brother's mercantile business at Lehigh.
