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.
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.

Rebecca Blackshear was not the wife of Lemuel Hodges as I had first thought.
Edmund Hodges of Surry County, North Carolina. Moved to Indiana in 1835, then to Missouri, next Arkansas and finally Okla
Edmund Hodges was born in 1776 in Surry County, North Carolina. He married Elizabeth Robinson between 1800 and 1805. They had many children, one of which was Edmund Jr. In 1835 the entire family moved to Indiana. Daniel Hodges was born in 1832. In 1860 the family moved to Mill Creek Twp in Missouri. They donated land for the Mt. Carmel Church and many family members are buried there. Daniel Hodges married Eliza Hodges while he resided in Indiana. He married twice more in Arkansas. The second wife was Martha Ferguson and his third wife was her sister Nancy. Daniel and Nancy and their family moved to Earlsboro, Oklahoma in 1900. One of their sons was named Joseph Grant Hodges who is my grandfather. Any information you have on this line would be appreciated. I have a quite a bit of information posted on Ancestry with documents and photos.
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.
