Surnames: Hodges, Preuitt, McDaniel
I am trying to sort out the family of Col Fleming Hodges (Senator) of Alabama. He first married Martha Patsy Johnson or Johnston. Second marriage to Martha Patsy Looney and a possible 3rd marriage to Sara Kimsey. Fleming was the brother of William Mason Hodges and John Hodges. I believe parents of these brothers were William Hodges and Elizabeth Kirby. Many ressearchers have mixed up the families of these 3 brothers and I am trying to sort it out once and for all. Fleming had a daughter Eliza whose second marriage was to her first cousin Daniel Merritt Hodges. Daniel is the son of Fleming's brother John. Need to definitively confirm Eliza's mother... Daniel and Eliza's daughter Louisa married William Preuitt McDaniel on 19 Jan 1858 in Lawrence County, AL. Louisa and William are my GGG grandparents. Also, confirmation of Fleming's birth and death dates. Thank you.

Do you have any HODGES in Jefferson Co., Ala. My GG Grandfather started showing up in the 1850 Census in Jefferson Co. His name was Leroy H. Hodges, he was born in 1806 in Laurens Co., SC., and one of his sons was Thomas Daniel Hodges which was my G. Grandfather. You may have seen my post in trying to find Leory's Parents Names.
Thanks. Peggy
