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.
I am the great granddaughter of Phillip Bartow Hodges of Claxton, GA. His daughter Ellen Inez Hodges Hollingsworth was my paternal grandmother.
I have traced the Hodges back to Northamptonshire, England to Henry Reed Hodges who was b. 1473 and d. 1555. I love to research my heritage.
I am excited to explore this site and learn more about the Hodges.
