Hezekiah "Carr" Cody

Surnames: Cody
Found a discrepancy in the Knott County, Kentucky, History & Families 1894-1994. There are 2 accounts for Hezekiah "Carr" Cody. One says he is the brother of William Penn Cody (1855-1921) and their father was Jehu Cody and mother, Matilda Smith. The other says he is the son of Joshua Cody and Matilda Smith. In one account, Hezekiah married Amelia Everidge and she was the mother of Tom Cody. The other says Hezekiah was married five times but never mentions Amelia Everidge as one of his wives. Yet, I was always told my grandfather, who's father was William Penn Cody was a first cousin to Tom Cody. That would have made William Penn and Hezekiah brothers. What is the scoop here?

My mother was jeanette Bailey - daughter of Hattie Cody- Hattie Cody was the daughter of Hezekiah Cody - who she said was married 5 times - because her mother was the last wife and her father was very old. She also said was a relative of bufflo bill cody

Heck, Becky I have Hezekiah Carr Cody married 5 times. I hope that is correct. I was thinking that Hezekiah and Tom was the same person. I have some connection to him but not an expert. I am sure you are cousin to Jill. And have forwarded your inquiry to her. We both think Sue Efling will have the exact information to solve the question. I also have the book you referenced. I will take a look at what you found.
P Cody's dau Mary married my G, Uncle Thomas Smith. and Jehu's wife Matilda Smith is sister to two of my grandfathers Thomas and William Med. If I can help you further, JB Francis
PS. I don't have any info about Wild Bill Cody other than he had a wild west show.
I do show Hattie Cody married to William Taulbee Bailey and had dau Martha Jane. JB

My friend in OR was Sadie Bentley and her parents were Alex Bentley and Leona Cody, daughter of Carr Cody. Sadie said her great great grandfather was Bill Cody and they called him Wild Bill. I checked and the two Wild Bills are not one and the same. I have Sadie's bible but it only has Bentley information in it. Sadie said Carr Cody was Bill Cody's son.
Alex Bentley was struck by a train in WA. His 2nd wife was a Smith.

Velma, this is interesting. I think Alexander is son of William Bentley and Lavina Combs. If this is correct I would very much like to contact your Friend Sadie. I have been working hard on some of her and my family. When you refer to Carr Cody are you refering to Hezehiah? I have a dau Elizabeth and Hattie for him. But, my record is far from complete. I have only recorded the Cody's who married into my family. But, I knew some of them as a child. I was born and raised in the community of Smithsboro, Knott Co., KY where most of the Cody family lived. The neighborhood of Irishman Creek. jbfrancis6@aol.com

Sadie died in 1992 in Roseburg, OR. She was born 7 Aug 1918 in Hindman. I believe her dad, Alex, was the son of Robert Bentley and Arta Hall. She always heard from Dallie and Aaron Cornett. Said that was her adopted Sis. I do have her Bentley information that was in the bible.

Velma, thanks so much for your reply. After I reread your posting I sorta figured she had died. Sorry.
I don't have a Robert but still thinking she was related to William and Lavina. I will do some more research. I would like to find some of the family living. A view years ago I saw some posts where they were searching for their granmother nancy. I have found her and want to share it with them.
Would it be possible to share the information recorded in her bible? JB Francis

Sadie said that Sidney Bentley and Has Bentley were her uncles. They were brothers to Alex and the parents were Arta and Robert Bentley. Orpha and James Bentley lived in Blanchester, OH. I think James and Orpha had kid that lived in Reno. They used to come up to Sadies. Maybe that could be a lead. I will sent the bible info in the morning.
