I too am a descendent of the TN Hodges. Thomas Hodges and Elizabeth Morgan both of VA are my great-great grandparents they moved from virigina to Tate Springs, grainger co TN. Their son John W is my great grandfather who married Mary Ellen Peters and their son Joseph is my grandfather. Thomas and Elizabeth also had a son Leander? Hodges who died in 1920. I have his death cert along with John W and Mary Ellen. I would be interested in knowing if this is the same as your Thomas and Elizabeth who was also called Betsy. I have had a difficult time finding the Hodges link which is on my mothers side.
