OK, my Hodges were in VA and NC, and early 1800s in McMinn Co., TN. Then Cherokee Co., AL and on to Johnson Co. and Newton Co., AR. 1845. At the end of the Civil War my gt gt grandfather moved his family to Hickory Co., MO from Newton Co., AR. Then my gt grandfather came to Dallas, TX in 1875. I still have distant kin up in Hickory Co., MO, we were up there in Oct.
