I have quite a bit of the information provided by Brady Bartlett, some that I received directly from Brady and some that came from other sources.
However, I show that the son of Joseph R. Hodge that you refer to was named Joseph H. Hodge, not Joseph R. Hodge, Jr. My Joseph H. Hodge married Sarah Birch and they had a son named W.W. Hodge born 24 February 1831. My source information shows that this information did come from a family tree posted by Brady Bartlett on the internet.
I have no information regarding any business dealings in Pulaski, TN.
If I find out my information is incorrect, it will not be the first time.
