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.
Do I have roots with this family line?
My name is Whitney Hand and my maternal grandfather was Edmond Ewing Hodges. He was born on March 30, 1928. I think he was born in Perry County, DuQuoin, IL. He was married to Barbra (Bilderback) Hodges. He died last year on July 21, 2010 in Marissa, IL. I know his mother's name was Irene (surname?) and his father was Edmond Hodges. That is all I know. Can anyone help?
