No, I did not say that. What I did, in my previous post, was transcribe an obituary. The published obituary stated that Katherine was the "daughter of the late Louis and Mandy Relford Mason".

Amanda did on 31 October 1899, in Lincoln County, marry John Rutherford and stayed married to him until her death.

If you notice in your father's obituary, Kate Hodge, is listed as a half sister. Also Lincoln County birth records, available on the Lincoln County GenWeb site, have the births of Gurnie Hodge, Ernie Hodge, Arnold Hodge, Bonnie Hodge and Ida Hodge recorded. In all cases the mother's surname is Mason.

Also there are five death records available on the Family Search Pilot site for Lincoln County:

Ernie Hodge's death record from 1947, lists his parents as Joe J Hodge and Catherine Mason.

Arnold Hodges's death record from 1925 states his parents were Joe Jackson Hodge and Katherine Mason.

Ida Hodge's death record from 1929 lists parents as J J Hodge and Kate Mason.

David Hodge's death record from 1935, lists parents as Joe J Hodge and Kate Mason.

Viola Hodge's death record from 1940, lists parents as J J Hodge and Kate Mason.

I also have the transcriptions of the obituaries for Gurnie Lee Hodge and Bonnie Hodge Campbell. In both of these the parents are listed as Jack Hodge and Katherine Mason Hodge.

My grandmother, Hattie Lena Hodge, supplied family history information to me in 1964 for a school paper. Some of the information was that her parents were John James Hodge and Melinda Frances Releford. John James Hodge's parents were Josephus Hodge and Cass Ann Lay. Melinda's parents were Andy Releford and Patsy Walls.

My mother, Lillian Margaret Hodge, is the illegimate child of Hattie Hodge and Evin Lee Slone. My mother and her parents are long since deceased.

I will not be silenced by anyone who wishes to rewrite history but will gladly correct my database when errors are uncovered.
