This beautiful handwritten document circa 1915 was found in an old trunk, saved and kindly sent to us by Barbara Fairbanks of Woodbury CT. We are attempting to find someone descended from William Hodge to pass it too.
My Great Grandfather Joseph Hodges came from Kidderminister, England born 1855, came to US in 1865. Married a Martha Harris in Springfield, Mo. Had 3 girls one boy Joe Samuel Hodges, who later moved to tulsa to operate Hodges Transfer and Moving ( Storage ). Died in 1945. Had son named Joseph Samuel Hodges, usually called Sam Hodges. Sam moved to California with a truck and married a Jane which gave two sons Joe and Dan ( both born between 1945 and 1948 ). Later he remarried a Gwen who gave him a son named Robert Hodges.
Any and all tips on where Joey or Danny Hodges would greatly be appreciated. If your Hodges has a sarah born in England around 1834 also let me know.

Jospeh Samuel Hodges born 1919 died 1984. Son of Joseph Edward (?) Hodges and Bertha (maiden unknown). I only met my Grandpa one time because my father was told his Dad had passed away when he was only 2 yrs old...he didn't. We met for Christmas in 1983 and he passed the following April. I know nothing about this side of my family and I'm desperate! Grandpa Joe died in Tulsa, OK as did his only living sister at the time, Midred Gilger who died in 1998 in Tulsa. I was told they came from Missouri to Oklahoma at some point. If ANYONE has ANY info on this line PLZ PLZ PLZ contact me. Thank you so much.
