Mary, you wrote: "In one of the postings it said that Lewis Cody (son of Elson Bristol Cody) had a brother Charles born in 1851. If this is correct, do you have any other info on him. Any thing you can give me is appreciated.
The answer to that specific question above is that Charles, son of the aforementioned E.B.Cody, was born in 1850 and died in 1910. He married twice, but his first wife died very young and without issue, so that is of little interest to most. However, then he married again three months later to Ida who became the mother of his many children.
Hopes this helps - at least in the (apparent) process of elimination! Best of luck in your research endeavors - and never stop asking those questions, for one never knows when there is a definite connection waiting! :)
