Searcing for descendants, ancestors, any information regarding the early Hodge families of Bedford County, TN.
I do have a particular interest in Paterack Hodge that is listed in the 1830 Census. Also, Palnac, Isaac, John, Patterson and other Hodges. Would like to know where they migrated from and to...what families they may have married into. Are there still descendants remaining in the area? Were all the initial Hodges of one family?
Is there any history of a Dr. Hodge, a Dr. Alphonso Hodge or Dr. Peter H. Hodge in particular? Were there any Peter, Joseph, Augustus, Gustavus, Lawrence, George, Samuel, Charles, Albert, Crittenden, Criton or James Hodge's in the censuses.
Any information at all would be most appreciated. It seems that descendents of some of these families settled in Hamilton and Jefferson Counties of Illinois in the mid 1800's, possibly White County, Illinois as well via Kentucky.
