I have very little info about my paternal grandfather's family. His name was Brodie Wilson Hodges, born ca. 1880, d. 1959 in Pasadena, CA. I know he grew up in Tenn and his father was supposedly nicknamed "Big Bill." Bill (and maybe his father, too) made moonshine in Tenn. Assuming they were all "hillbillies" (uneducated, poor mountain people living ouside the law or near its edges)I don't expect there are many written records. Brodie Wilson ("B.W.") traveled west with a snake oil salesman of some kind when he was very young, ended up working for General Mills. Do you know anything about these folks? Many thanks!
