Barbara, I am sympathetic as to your questions about Bibby Hodges.I am researching my husband's Hodges family and believe Wiley Bibb (or Bibby) Hodges to be his 3rd great grandfather.Bibby seems to have been born 1775 in Halifax Co, VA.He was married to Sarah "Sallie" Brooks and our connection was their son George Washington Hodges, born 20 Oct. 1812 in Tenn.Other children seem to have been Sarah "Sallie" Hodges b. 1811; Mary Hodges, b. 1821; James Hodges b. 1805; John Hodges b. 1810; Susannahy Hodges b. 1816; Thomas Hodges b. 1822; Elijah Hodges b. 1824; Bibby Robert Hodges b. 1828. (Another child, James Jackson Hodges, is listed as born 1835--but sources say he died in Claiborne Co, TN, about 1830, so that may not be his son.)If you would like to see mhy complete family treeI will arrange for Ancestry to send you and evite for the Hodges family tree.
Going back to the parents ofWiley Bibby we are confused.Originally, a cousin had told us that his father and mother were Jesse Hodges and Sallie Bibb.But I have seen other information on Ancestry which has convinced me that Thomas Hodges and Susannah Bomar were the parents of Bibby Hodges.And it goes on back through two more Thomas Hodges, etc.As to Wiley Bibb Hodges, sources I have listed on our Ancestry family tree are: 1801--Marriage contract to Sarah "Sallie" Brooks on 12 Jan in Halifax Co, VA.Found in "Virginia Marriages 1740-1850.He is in the 1830 censs for Claiborne Co., TN.I appreciate getting anything you have on him.Thanks
