Redding and Mary

Mourning vs. Hodges et al. - Supreme Court of Georgia 1864

John H. Mourning, plaintiff in error, vs. Matthew G. Hodges et al., defendants in error.

Where bail has been taken in an action of trover, and a verdict rendered for the plaintiff, it is regular and legal for such plaintiff to enter and sign judgment against the defendant and his security jointly, without scire facias or other proceeding.

Motion to set aside judgment in Sutnter Superior Court, decided by Judge Alexander A. Allen, at April Term, 1861.

Matthew G. Hodges and his wife, Elizabeth Hodges, formerly Elizabeth Herring, and Mary Jane Herring, Haygood Herring and "Woodbury Herring, minors, by their next friend, Matthew G. Hodges, brought an action of trover in Sumter Superior Court against John B. Herring, to recover damages for the alleged conversion by him of four negro slaves belonging to the said plaintiffs.

The plaintiffs, in due form, required bail in said action, under the Act of the General Assembly, approved 25th December, 1821, and John H. Mourning became defendant's bail. The case was tried at an adjourned term of said Court, held in August, 1859, and a verdict was rendered in favor of the plaintiff, Hodges, for $200 00, and in favor of said minors for $2,55000, for the value of the negroes sued for, and $1,625 00 for hire of said negroes.

Upon this verdict the plaintiffs entered and signed judgment against the defendant, Herring, and his bail, Mourning, jointly without scire facias or other proceedings.

At April term, 1861, of said Court, Mourning moved to set the judgment aside as against him, because the same was not warranted by law. The presiding Judge overruled the motion and that decision. is the error complained of.

S. C. Elam, for plaintiff in error.
McCAY & Hawkins, contra.

Mourning vs. Hodges et al.

Elizabeth E. Identified

At the Alabama USGenNet's website there is a page on Tolbert Cemetery that talks about the possible identity of Elizabeth E. Hodges. It says "She was buried there next to Lemuel and Viney Hodges. No one seemed to know anything about her and I can only make a suggestion as to my belief of her identity!" and then goes on to offer a theory which I can for the most part confirm.

In 1864 the Supreme Court of Georgia heard a case involving Matthew G Hodges, his wife Elizabeth E. Herring and her minor siblings including the future wife of Thomas Hodges, Mary Jane Herring. The case stemmed from a dispute with John B. Herring involving slaves circa 1858 in which Matthew G. acted on behalf of the minor Herring children.

Redding Hodges Found

No one really knew what happened to Redding during the war. The info I first found said he drowned in Tenn early in the war. Today a photo was taken of a marker at the Rocky Island IL POW cemetery that proves he died there. When I requested the photo I had little hope his grave would even be found.

It was an honor to rejoin Redding with his family.

Redding Columbus (Doc) Hodges  [28 July, 1890 – 20 Feb, 1965]

Spouse: Mary Ann Dudley  [20 Oct, 1889 – 18 Mar, 1965]

 

Doc was a carpenter.  He worked worked for the railroad repairing cars and then for the German American lumber co. (later changed to the Sherman lumber co.  The Sherman lumber co. also built ships and Doc worked in the ship yard.).  He was out of work in 1930 due to cancer on his hand.  The lack of money coming in resulted in his son Marvin leaving school and getting a job with the railroad to support the family.  Doc later returned to work and continued to work in the ship yard until his eye sight got too bad.
