Richard Hodges, b. 1795, SC, and wife Mary, b. 1800, SC to Choctaw Co MS abt 1831

In search of any and all descendants of RICHARD and MARY HODGES who descended from SC into Choctaw Co MS around 1831 based on children's birthplaces. (I do not know the maiden name of Mary.) However, I cannot currently find them on any 1840 census. They were definitely living in Choctaw Co MS in 1850 with the following children: ELIZABETH (b. 1822, SC); WILLIAM (b. 1829, SC); WALTER (b. 1831, MS); SARAH (b. 1837, MS); LUCY (b. 1839, MS); and GEORGE W. (b. 1842, MS). There is also possibly another son Richard (b. 1818, SC) ... he shows up in Choctaw as well by 1850; that younger RICHARD HODGES was m. to an ELIZA JANE LEAVER/LEEVER and their children were Joseph (1845), William (1847), and John Sandford (1849). I have corresponded with a contact on the younger Richard line and can't quite connect the two families but believe they are father and son. I am specifically looking for information on the WALTER HODGES. He was living with a WILLIAM HENRY HODGESin 1860 and I can't find him in 1870. WH Hodges' parents would be father JAMES L. HODGES also there in Choctaw Co MS by 1850 (Lowndes Co MS by 1840) and mother SARAH CUMMINGS(b. 1795, SC). I would like to know the relationship between the older RICHARD HODGES(b. 1795, SC) and the JAMES L. HODGES(b. bet 1787-1791, SC). Were they brothers? cousins?
