Marcus's second wife was Susan Hodges. They had 9 children.  Please contact me if you have any further information. 

W. B. and Clara Hodges Wetsel


At the time of his death in 1982, W. B. (Dub) Wetsel (born 1899) was the oldest native-born resident of Sweetwater.  “Dub” spent most of his early life in the saddle on the Barron Ranch in Fisher County and developed a lifelong love for ranching and rodeos.  He wore only shop-made boots for 67 years and was one of the first participants in the Stamford Cowboy contests.  The ranch world in which W. B. grew up was in many ways that of the 19th century.  Toward the end of his life, when asked to name the biggest change he had seen in a lifetime, he replied without hesitation:  “barbed wire”.
At the Hodges ranch on Christmas Day in 1919, W. B. married Clara Hodges (born 1901), daughter of George Palmer (1879-1939) and Lula Cranston Hodges (1881-1905).  Mr. Hodges had left Cotton Valley, Louisiana, in 1888 with his father, Alex, settled in Jones County and bought land in Fisher County in the 1890’s.  Clara’s mother, Lula, was the daughter of Jones County rancher, William David Cranston, who emigrated as a boy of eight to Pennsylvania from Scotland.  He brought the first registered Hereford cattle to West Texas from Missouri.  The herd was purchased by the Largent Ranch at the time of his death in 1907.
His daughter, Lula, had died in 1906, leaving two children:  Clara and Cranston (1903-1940).  In 1908, Palmer Hodges married Rachel Lambert Murray.  Their three daughters, Rachel, Hazel and M. E., grew up with Clara on the Hodges Ranch.  Mr. Hodges, long remembered for sharing his automobile, the first in the area, with neighbors in need, installed telephone lines from his ranch to Roby, Rotan and Sweetwater.  He organized an annual rabbit drive, furnishing bar-b-que and ammunition to hunters from Sweetwater and Fisher County.

Floyd Crawford Hodges (1847-1903)

F. Crawford Hodges, in addition to being an excellent farmer of Webster Par., Louisiana., is also a successful merchant.  He was born in Randolph County, Ga., on June 1, 1847, to Hon. Edmond W. Hodges, a native of South Carolina, who removed to Georgia with his father, Matthew Hodges, in an early day, and in that State grew to mature
years, and married Miss Mary McGowan, a Georgian by birth.  Mr. Hodges became will known in Georgia, and for several terms represented his county in the State Legislature.  He removed to Louisiana in 1858, and settled in Cotton Valley, in what is now Webster Par., Louisianawhere he opened up a large plantation, being the owner of some sixty slaves before the war. On this plantation he passed from life in July, 1867, his wife having passed from life some two years earlier. For about one year prior to his death Mr. Hodges had engaged in the mercantile
business in Cotton Valley. Their family of four sons and three daughters grew to mature years, but one daughter is now deceased.  

F. C. Hodges grew to manhood in this parish, and when only sixteen years of age, or in 1864, entered the Confederate Army and served until the close of the war, in the reserve corps, being a lieutenant. After the termination of the war Mr. Hodges returned home and spent some three years in school, then was in his father's mercantile establishment until the death of the latter, when he spent another year in school.  In 1870 he and a brother formed a partnership and engaged in merchandising at Cotton Valley, but at the end of one year the brother withdrew and F. Crawford continued alone up to 1875. They then closed out the business and engaged in farming exclusively for five years. In 1880 he again engaged in mercantile pursuits, and this has received much of his attention up to the present time, his stock of goods being large and his patronage quite large.
