my name is linda hodge davis and im trying to find my dads twin sisters and his parents,i knew my dad ,he died in 1989
please take time to read my letter,i believe my dad may have changed names around ect,
dads parents names are suposed to be.
his fathers name as carl hodge
his mothers name mary( brown) hodge
now this get crazy,dad wrote on the back of his ss card that you carry around he put his dads name as william.

dads full name is frank carl hodge , one ss card i got from the broad has dads date of birth 1-25-1928,now on dads south carolina id he has hes birthday date as 11-25-1928, see its getting crazy,
ss broad has dad born in philly pa,but not record of his birth in pa.
there is something about detroit mich and st clair shores mich.
dad joked about being related to hodges for dodges a car lot around there.
he also joked about drop the s on hodge
my mom and dad got married in lincolon ,north carolina in may 1956
dad didnt gett his ss number till 1956 so he went with out one till then, when in fl he worked making seawalls for a few mos, then mom and dad went back to traveling with the fair, i do know dad went under a different name walter brozeola,till they married,he did tell mom that the walter brozeola was not his real name,,
mom and dad travel with the fair for years with my grandparents, my family had their own traveling fair.name of it not sure.
we have lived in sumter sc for awhile when dad had his night clubs, but again not under his name ,its was under moms name,
moms name is mary eileen matter hodge,mom remarred but only look for this name.
matter is moms maiden name.
i have a file on dad but i have missed placed it, but will look for it today,i have some much paper work not on dad ,but on my moms side of the family
dads twins sisters do not know the names,only a nickname, babe and baby
i heard a story,that dad may have had a older sister,that nicknamed him curly, and thats what my dad went buy.
dad did something in his teens to were his dad was going to call the cops, and he never went back home,but he told mom back in the 1960s that he should see if his family is ok,because of the roiting going on,
also dad told my brother he has a sister in VA.but i have no paper trail on dad so i have been looking over 20 years.dad told mom that he could be related to
HODGES FOR DODGES, this is a car lot in detroit mich.i lady looked it up and said there was a car lot there with that name,but family moved away.
every thing was in my moms name even the night clubs, i do know that dad always had a alabama tags on his car, so somewere in alabama he had a address,i never clould find out anything
PLEASE ALL I CAN DO NOW IS GET MY PICTURES OUT TO ALL HODGE AND HODGES,I HOPING SOMEONE CAN PUT A NAME TO MY FACES,ALL I HAVE ARE THE 2 PICTURES.
PLEASE EMAIL MY PICTURES TO ALL FAMILY MEMBERS EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT HODGE OR HODGES, SOMEONE OUT THERE CAN PUT MY PUZZLE TOGETHER.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READ AND ANY HELP YOU CAN DO
