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?

Hello all! Here is a post detailing what I know about the Hodges background of my family. I have a bit more information than is listed here if it would be of help to anyone. At the end of this post is a quick summary of my lineage minus dates and siblings and marriages.
If anyone has any information about these people or thinks I can help them at all, please let me know!
