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.

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?
