Surnames: Hodge, Morton, Holleyman
Thank so much for this list. Just be aware that many of the "Hodge" names listed here are a family of Creek Indians. They were among the last to be added to the official Dawes Roll in the 1889. They returned from Texas to settle in Severs Township around the modern Schulter, OK area. Green is the older brother to Johnson and Delilah (Lila) Hodge Morton.

My research points to Hodge being an anglicization of Harjo, a very common Creek name. The family may have drifted into Texas during the Civil war to avoid the conflict in Indian Territory. One of the earlier Creek chiefs, Roley McIntosh was buried in Marion County during this era.

The other option is that they were part of the Creek group who stayed behind to fight with American troups rousting both Seminoles and Blacks out of Florida in the Second Seminole War. Some of those warriors and their families never made it to Indian Territory, but settled directly in Texas. If that is the case, this family would have been in Texas earlier than the 1860's. If anyone has information about this family group in Texas prior to the 1863, please let me know.
