Isom B. Hodges and Sarah Elizabeth Carroll were married October 14, 1853 in Van Buren County, TN.
Isom Bradley and Sarah Elizabeth Hodges came to Fulton County, Arkansas in 1859, with children Alexander and Mariah (Mary A.), accompanied by Sarah's parents, Green and Priscilla Carroll, and their children (Sarah's siblings).It is assumed other Tennessee neighbors made the move to Fulton County at this same time. Why the destination of Fulton County, again we do not know, although they were probably lured by available affordable land, offering new opportunities for a better life. On arrival the Hodges and Carroll families camped in Big Springs Twp. (Elizabeth).
Isom Bradley Hodges died in 1871, with family stories advising death resulted from lingering leg injuries received during the Civil War. Wife Sarah brought the wounded Isom from Lanton, MO to the Elizabeth home by wagon. He served as a Private in Co. C, Fristoe's Regiment, Missouri Cavalry, CSA.
Isom Bradley Hodges was buried in Barker Cemetery, south of Viola. Wife Sarah Elizabeth (Carroll) Hodges, died in 1908 and she and infant E. E. Hodges (born 1861, died 1863) are buried beside Isom. Nearby rest in-laws Green and Priscilla Carroll and their son Captain John Carroll.
