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.

Daddy born 1932 adopted 1935 adoption and birth cover up Still searching for fathers biological family in Decatur County Georgia
Okay, for 9 years now I have been searching and trying to find my fathers biological parents. Much to my surprise, I have been told by 4 different reliable sources that my fathers birth was there at his home and made to look like an adoption and that his adopted father was his real father after all and that his mother who may still be living by the way was a young 16 or 17 year old girl who was a close friend of the family so to protect her reputation and the fathers, they made it look like an adoption. This could have been a surrogacy type situation which was probably not easily accepted back then seeing how my grandparents were in their 40's when this occured and have never been able to have children of their own. I love my daddys parents regardless if they are the biological parents or the adoptive parents,they loved and spoiled my father and he had the best childhood any little boy could dream of. i just have an unending curiousity to find out for sure.
Back in August 18th, 1932 my father was born. He was adopted by the Hodges family in South Georgia whose parents were Frederick Benjamin Hodges & Jessie Pound Hodges. His Grandfather was Stephen Littleton Hodges and his great grandfather was Benjamin Hodges from Pitt county NC. I wondered which Hodges family he was adopted from in the Jacksonville area where he was born? Anybody know of any deaths at child birth or any other information that may could explain this family adoption?
