I have been in touch with bobby thigpen who gave me lots of info on the Hodge's.
My great grandmother was Rebecca Lorena Charity Hodge. Her parents were James Everett Hodge and Maria Jane Frances Ridgeway Hodge. The info that Bobby gave me goes back to the 1700's. You can email me, if you will, with the info that you have, and if I have info that you need let me know and I will email it to you.
