Hello, My name is Matthew and I am the Great Grandson of Owen Henry Hodges of Rocky Mount, VA.
My Great-Great Grandfather would have been "Martin" Hodges also of Rocky Mount and he was married to "Martha" Hodges. Sometimes the Census' I find says he was married to a "Mattie" Hodges. This I am not sure if it is a mis-spelling or what.
I am found several records following back to England, but was wondering if anyone could possibly help me confirm these findings. I am on a low budget and cannot afford to travel much or invest in a subscription to certain sites, but would much love to find my roots. The information I have is below. The confirmed ancestors will be followed by an *.
William Hodges - This one came from England before 1720. Robert Hodges - This one also came from England before 1720. Abednego Hodges Lewis Hodges Martin Hodges * Owen Henry Hodges * - Great Grandfather - Married to Annie Austin. James Raymond Hodges * - My Grandfather.
The surnames my line is associated with as I know of are:
Austin Dowdy Wade Stanley
Any information or suggestion is very much appreciated. Thank you, Matthew Hodges.
