Alexander Hodge, fought with/under Francis Marion Fox, Rev. War

Surnames: Hodge
I don't know if anyone can help me with this, but I'll try. My 5-greats grandfather, Alexander Hodge, lived in SC and fought in the Revolutionary War. He has been honored by the DAR, particularly in Texas where he lived when he died in 1836. He was also one of the original colonists with Stephen F. Austin ("Old Three Hundred").

I've been trying to track down his Rev. War information. According to the DAR, he fought for North Carolina, was from Mecklenburg Co, and served with Francis Marion "The Swamp Fox" Fox. However, when I looked up Alexander Hodge and found his pension info (at Footnote.com), there was a great deal of information that completely conflicts with what I do know about Hodge. The Alex. Hodge in the pension info is the same as what the DAR has, but there is no mention of him ever having moved from Mecklenburg Co, and his death date is different. MY Alexander Hodge was born in Pennsylvania, lived in South Carolina at the time of the war, moved right after the war to Georgia, then migrated through Kentucky and Arkansas to Texas, dying in August 1836.

How do I go about finding out the real Rev. War story on Hodge? I know our account of him is accurate. Can the DAR ever be wrong? I'm just totally confused ...
