I am looking for information on my 3 great grandfather, William Hodges, Jr. So many stories are out there about why he stayed in North Carolina and his wife, Sarah Jane Morris, left the state with all of their children which included Mary Margaret and William's brother John Hodges, who married her sister Frances "Fanny" Morris.
