Sorry for posting to such an old message; for some reason this message just now turned up on a recent search on John Allen Hodges. I frequently search on him for new information, he is my direct gggg-grandfather, and occasionally old messages show up. Perhaps the line you are actually referring to is through Wiley Bibby Hodges below, not John Allen Hodges. The descendants of John Allen Hodges and Sarah (Sallie) McCubbins are well documented; he didn't have a son John born 1812 who married last name Cunningham.
