Hello. It appears that we are family. I am the granddaughter of Ruby I. Hodge(Ross). I am just beginning my journey and found your post. I am sorry that I cannot help, but it is neat to see relatives. I have not spoken to my mother in 8 years or so and this is her side of the family. Ruby passed away when I was 9 so I was never able to learn any roots. If I find anything I will let you know.
