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.
Meshack Hodge, does anyone know who his father was?
I know this subject has been beaten to death. I've certainly hit a wall with it. But, I'm determined to get as much information about this as I can. Even if we can't figure out who Meshack's (born about 1776) father was...can we figure out where this family-line originated from? When they came to the United States, and where from?
Meshack lived at least for awhile in Kentucky. You can find him on land records.
Can anyone help me?
