I'm looking for any information about Charles HODGES (my gg grandfather) born about 1830 place unknown. He married Mary Ellen ARMSTRONG daugher on George ARMSTRONG. Their children were Mary Ellen HODGES, Frank HODGES and William Henry HODGES born Aug. 30, 1872 (three months after his father Charles died). Willaim Henry married Lillie Mae ROBINSON in Iowa.
It is reported that William Henry was born in either Wells or Blue Earth, Minn. Charles had two brothers I know of. They are Frank and Ben (Benjamin).
Any help would be appreciated.

Your message is 9 yrs old so hope my response reaches you.
There were some name similarities in your message to my ancestor Henry W. HODGES b 1829 in NY, VT or MA, married Salina P. LINDSEY, children, Susan, Lillie Jane, Florilla, Frank and Florence, lived in Kasota, Le Sueur, MN. So I researched your family a bit hoping it would lead to mine.
Could not find a tree for Charles Hodges, Mary Ellen Armstrong, etc., but did find the following below.
You may have already found it, but sending it just in case.
