Hi
I just visted the grave of John Hodges in Hodges, SC. I believe there is a book that talks about John Hodges. His son George Washingon Hodges was a militia General. According to what I have is that John came south with his father as a teenager. Both he and his father went off the fight the British and while gone indians attacke the home place burning the cabin to the ground killing two daughters. A third daughter was kidnapped by an indian that knew her and she was taken away, returning some years later with a pre teen indian boy her son. The son did not like where he was and returned to his tribe and was never seen again. The daughter remarried. I have alittle more information but will have to dig it out. I am concerned that John Hodges grave is not being maintained in Hodges, SC being in a damp wooded area off a side road. For a Revolutionary war soldier he and that Hodges cemetery deserves more care.

Hi Bill, I think this may also be my family line. Do you have any information as to what John Hodges wife's name was and did they have any children. Do you know if your John had a middle name?

Thanks,
Linda

Does anyone have information on James Hodges who was born about 1750 SC. He later lived in Jefferson Co. TN and Limestone Co. AL. He and his first wife were supposed to have had eleven children and he and Rachel, his second wife had eight children. Would appreciate any help with this family.

Dear Bill, I hope that you will be reading this. I have a record of a George Washington Hodges and will share what I have with you. If you wish you can contact me thru
pebcous@yahoo.com and we can share other info. Will be grateful for anything I can get on this elusive Hodges clan. I am sending you my notes that cover both John and G.W. Hodges. Also I have that John was born 1765 (not a firm date) in Essex, VA, married Margaret Long abt 1786 (she dies 1790) and he married Frances Anderson (bn 22 Mar 1773 of Abbeville Dist. SC, in 1790 (mother of G.W.2d child and 1st son), she died 14 Mar 1844 Abbeyville, SC. This G.W. was born 3 Sep 1792 of Abbeyville Dist., marries Rebecca Douglass 15 Oct 1815, Abbeyville Dist., and dies 24 Mar 1876 Abbeyville Dist. If this is your G.W. read on.
This my note info:
Tombstone Inscriptions from Family Graveyards in Greenwood County, SC by Margaret J. and Louise M. Watson FHL 975.733 V3w Hodges Family burying ground. This burying ground is just over a mile north of Hodges on the south side of state road 374. Turn east from highway 178 onto road 374, cross the railroad and few yards beyond is the railroad crossing sign; opposite the sign is a logging road and about 200 paces down that rough trail the tombstones can be seen across a gully to the east, in the woods.

Inscriptions

Mrs. Frances Hodges - wife of - Maj. John Hodges - who departed this life- 14th March 1844 - with a glorious hope of - a blessed immortality -aged 70 yrs 11 mos and 22 days.

Maj. John Hodges - who departed this life - 24th Dec. 1834 - aged about 78

and many others with last names of Cantey, Hart, Anderson, Smith, Stokes,and other Hodges.

There are indications of additional graves here.

(The Revolutionary War pension record of John Hodges shows that he entered service Apr 1, 1780 as a private at the age of 15 and served about 21 months. His title of "Major" may have come from state militia service later. He was twice married, first to Margaret Long, two children; and second to Frances Anderson, 16 children. George Washington Hodges was the oldest son of the second marriage and was a brigadier general in the state milita. The town of Hodges is named for Gen. G. W. Hodges.)
Hope to hear from you in the near future.
A possible cousin, Virginia Bartelt
