I am trying really hard to research this part of my tree and I keep coming up virtually empty handed.My GGG grandfather is Meshack (Mace) Hodges.He married Nancy Caroline Bozarth.I have heard that he died abt 1874 in Taney Co Missouri...story goes a tree fell on him while he was cut'n it down. Nancy Caroline then moved to Johnson Co Arkansas and remarried to James Calhoun Shackleford. I have that Meshack and Nancy had the following children.I would gladly take corrections or any missing info.
Richard Austin Hodge(s) 1856-1932 married Elizabeth Sarah Marler Rachel E Hodge(s) 1857-1889 married Marshall A Thomas Nancy Melinda Hodge(s) 1859-1939 married Ed Wesley McAlester John Wesley Hodge(s) 1861-1937 married Winnie Elizabeth Bean? and Caddy Cooksey Margaret (Maggie) Hodge(s) 1864-1944 (my GG grandmother) married Jesse Green Carter Polly Ann Hodge(s) 1867-? Rebecca Alice Hodge(s) 1874-1962 married John Brady Dixon
I do have more info on these children but to keep it short this is basically the family I am researching.Any help on who Meshack's father and mother might have really been would be nice...I have heard his father's name was John and mother's name was Mary Acuff
