My father was put up for adoption in 1930. We know his biological father's name was Donovan Merritt Hodges, b. 1904, Michigan; his grandfather was Charles W. Hodges b. 1857, N.Y. I can't get any further back than that. There is lots of information in Ancestry.com about Charles, but nothing that tells his parents names. He says in the census material that they were both born in New York, so if anyone knows anything about a Charles Hodges that was born in N.Y., moved to Michigan and died in California, please let me know. Charles other children were Ruth (Hubert), b. 1896; Carlton Thomas, b. 1898; Gordon Francis, b. 1900, all in Michigan. Any info will help. Thanks.
