Hello. My name is Janie Walker. My link to the Hidges family comes through my gg-grandmother Mary B J "Puss" Hodges. The nickname has always been used to help identify her. She was married to Jesse Keen. They lived in Sumner County. Mary's parents were Ezekiel C Hodges and Rebecca Dorris. Ezekiel's parents were Isham Hodges Sr and Elizabeth Betsy Clay (a relative to statesman Henry Clay). Isham's father was also named Isahm but is called Isham I. Not sure who his parents are, although it is rumored to be Robert Hodges. Isham Sr and Elizabeth came to Sumner County from Franklin County VA. I would love to talk to others whi have roots to the Sumner County TN Hodges. The Hodges family often intermarried with the Keen family of Sumner County as well.
While Looking up Hodges ancestors here in Arizona I came across a death certificate for A John A. Hodges Born October 16 1858 In Douglas Cnty. Missouri. My line is from Douglas- Taney Cnty. Missouri. But he does not fit in yet with my line. Death certificte lists him as a Pensioner living in Casa Grande and place of death as Pinal Cnty Hosp. In Florence Az. Died on Jan 24 1946 Birthplace as Douglas Cnty. Missouri. No info as to mother or father or wife is noted. Does this sound familiar? Anyone looking for him? Please reply.
Thanks, John Hodges in Arizona

The following is an account of your grandmothers death. I'm sorry to report something so sad. I hate to tell you about it.
I am looking for information on Jesse Hodges living in the household of Martin Shaw, Sr. Jesse was adopted by Lucy Shaw. Jesse married Rose Ann Hinson. His son John Miley Hodges, my grandfather, married Arrel Missouri May. I am desperately in search of any info that can direct me to Jesse's parents. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
