LOOKING FOR INFO ON GRANDMOTHER

CHESTER LEO JOHNSTON (View posts)
Posted: 31 Mar 2000 2:50PM GMT
MY GRANDMOTHERS NAME ( TO MY KNOWLDGE) WAS BORN HATTIE HODGES, LATER MARRIED TO MR. (?)BENNETT. SHE WAS NATIVE AMERICAN. I BELIVE THAT SHE WAS MARRIED IN ARKANSAS, AND PERHAPS BORN THERE AS WELL. IT'S BEEN LIKE PULLING TEETH TO GET INFO ON HER OR HER CHILD ( MY FATHER) TO MY KNOWLEDGE HIS FIRST NAME WAS LEO AND WAS MARRIED TO MY MOTHER IN 1937 (?) HE DIED IN AROUND 1940-41 OF GANGRENE FROM A BROKEN LEG ( OH FOR THE WONDERS OF MODERN MEDICINE THEN!)IF ANYONE HAS INFORMATION OR COULD TELL ME HOW TO GET INFORMATION ON THIS I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT! I ALSO HAVE TWO HALF SISTERS GWEN AND WANDA THAT I HAVEN'T SEEN FOR ABOUT 40 YEARS. HOPEFULLY IT WON'T BE AS HARD TO FIND THEM!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY! AS FAR AS I KNOW HATTIE'S ONLY CHILD WAS MY HUSBANDS FATHER "LEO". WE'RE NOT EVEN SURE IF THAT WAS HIS GIVEN NAME AS WE CAN'T SEEN TO LOCATE IT ANYWHERE. HATTIE ( AGAIN, WAS THAT REALLY HER GIVEN NAME?) MARRIED A BENNETT.( IN ARKANSAS?) THEIR CHILD LEO MARRIED SOMEONE ( DID THEY DIVORCE OR DID SHE DIE?) AND HAD TWO GIRLS, WANDA AND GWEN. LEO MARRIED JUANITA (VENITA) FLEMMING AND THEY PRODUCED A SON, CHESTER LEO BENNETT. LEO HAD AN ACCIDENT AT WORK, BROKE HIS LEG AND GANGRENE SET IN AND HE DIED. LEOS MOTHER HATTIE MOVED IN WITH JUANITA TILL MANY YEARS LATER. MY HUSBAND REMEMBERS THAT SHE DID LIVE WITH HIM AFTER HE GOT MARRIED ( BY NOW, CHESTER WAS ADOPTED BY THE MAN THAT HIS MOTHER RE-MARRIED MR. JOHNSTON)THE LAST TIME THAT HE SAW HIS GRANDMOTHER, SHE WAS LIVING WITH ONE OF HIS HALF SISTERS GWEN OR WANDA AND SHE DIED IN THE 70'S . HE HASN'T SEEN THEM IN , WHAT, 30 YEARS? SO THEIR LAST KNOWN LAST NAMES WERE SMITH AND SAWYER. I THINK THAT THIS BUGS ME MORE THAN IT DOES HIM! CHESTER HAS 8 CHILDREN THAT WOULD LOVE TO KNOW JUST WHO THEIR ANCESTERS WERE! HE WAS TOLD THAT HATTIE WAS AN NATIVE AMERICAN PRINCESS AND THATS WHAT HE REMEBERS( AND SEVERAL NAMES THAT SHE WOULD CALL HIM!) I DO HAVE PICTURES OF HER!! BUT NONE OF MR. BENNETT. LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO SEND THEM TO YOU! GOT TO FOR NOW BUT LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU. SUZI

Joseph Hodges married Mary Philly in Chicksaw Co. MS. Of their 6 children one was named Hattie born 1896. He later married Emma Scott from Arkansas. They had 4 children.By 1910 they were in Milam Co. TX and in 1920 in Bowie Co. TX and I think later in Leon Co. TX. Unfortunately that's about all I or my cousin who gave me this info know. I don't know if this fits your time frame. Good luck.
