Does anyone have any Hodnett that went to Alaska during this time period or went missing during this time period. I have a greatgrandfather with last name Hodnett(also under other name variations) that married or took up with my great grandmother Sophia Sinnott( also other name variations) in the 1890s. They lived in Katalla, the site of the first oil discovery in Alaska ( about 1910-12). Hodnett's first name I am not sure of, it could have been William, John or James. He and Sophia, had two or more children, Margaret(grandmother, born in 1896, died in 1950s), James( died in 18970s, married a Durkee and a Cloudman), maybe Robert Bruce( maybe died young in early 1900s), and one other son. Soon after 1900, Sophia remarried or whatever. She has children by William Maguire. So Hodnett, died or disappeared after 1900 or so.
