We have hit a brick wall looking for the parents of my great grandfather. My great grandfather was Ernest Hodge. He was born in Clinton, IL on abt. 8/31/1892 and dies abt. 2/10/1954. His parents may have been from Appalachia or Kentucky. The records in Vermillion, IN were destroyed in a fire back in the 1920's, so there are no records of his parents in that area. We have gotten both a death certificate and a obituary and neither mention parents names. We don't know where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
