I think we are related. My great grandfather, Sim Richard Hodges, was born December 8, 1875 in Mississippi, but spent much of his life in Texas. His first wife was Mary Dallas Elizabeth Hawley (called Molly). Sim and Molly had 17 children (one of them was fanny Belle). Molly died in 1948 in Quanah, Texas and Sim remarried (second wife Bonnie). Sim Richard Hodges died in 1970 at the age of 94 in Quanah, Texas. Sim's father was R. S. Hodges (possibly Richard Sim). The family migrated to Texas (date unknown). I have been told that R. C. Hodges raised three families (three wives). I have also been told that one of his descendants (from his second or third family) has done quite a lot of genealogical research on our Hodges family. And, I have been told I have cousins in the Gatesville area and in the Texas Panhandle.
