I know a number of people have been trying to break through the brick wall of Andrew Hodge b. ca. 1804 m. Cynthia and lived in Pulaski Co., Va. and/or Elijah Hodge m. Melinda Anderson and lived in Montgomery Co., Va.
Now we have DNA test results that show very strongly that Andrew and Elijah are probably sons of Welcome William Hodges and Polly Pines, m. 1807 in Franklin Co., Va.
Other sons of Welcome and Polly are probably Gabriel, Wilson, Marcus, and Harvey Hodge, who lived in Lawrence Co., Ky.
The DNA test through Marcus matches the Hodges of Franklin Co., Va.
