Hodge Family Genealogy Forum
What a thrill getting your email, and the will information. Thank you for getting back to me. I only had parts of the will. My question, what does LW&T mean, and what does the H in parenthesis mean? Our Rev.Samuel, first son of John D. and Agness was born 1746 in Christian Co. Ky.,died 10 April, 1816 in Wilson Co., Tenn. married Sarah. His brothers, Joseph R., born 1755, Orange Co. NC, died 28 Feb. 1822, buried Barr Cemetery, Gallatin, Tenn. married Euphemia Agnew, daughter of Dr. Robt. Agnew and Jane Shaw Agnew of Guilford Court House, NC.; Rev. William, born 1758 died 1819, buried Hawfields Church, Orange Co., NC, married Charity White, daughter of Stephen & Ann White; John Jr. died before 1793 (that is all I know about him other than John D. includes his sons in his will. Robert,born 1761, died 1841, Mississippi.Married Nancy Mebane, NC.and George born 1783, Orange Co. NC. died 1860 Golconda, Pope Co, Ill.This information supposedly came from "The Autobiography of Rev. John Allen" who married a Nancy Hodge. The Hodges were of English parentage, but by reason of shipwreck, were landed on the coast of Ireland where they remained for a number of years. John D. died upon a tract of land, about 900 acres situated near Hawfield, Orange and Alamance Cos. NC. After death of John D., Joseph, William & Robt. with their aged mother, Agness, moved to Sumner Co., Tenn c. 1795 (one account says 1800).Three, at least, of the sons served in the Revolutionary Army. Joseph was a Captain, and served under General Nathaniel Green. Was seriously wounded in the Battle of Guilford Court House in NC on 15 March, 1781. As a reward for services, he received a valuable grant of land in Sumner Co. Tenn. Samuel served as a drummer and private in the Rev. war from September 1777 to November, 1779. I do not know where John's land might be in the western country. We are trying to figure out why our Samuel was born in Ky. and none of the other siblings were born there. The names of your ancestors do not ring a bell on any information I have come across. I have tons of Hodge information. My brother, Jerry Hodge Kasper and I have been working on this line for over 20 years, long before email!!I will ask Jerry if he has anything more on John Jr. As you can tell, I know more about Samuel's brothers than I do about him. How do you tie Wm Francis to John D. Hodge? Please answer to my email address above. I loved hearing from you. Hope some of the above is helpful to you. Peggy
