Mary was born the daughter of Robert Hodges  and Elizabeth ? in Franklin Co Virginia. Her parents were friends and interacted and intermarried with the Stewart, Richards, England, Warren, and Jones families.
Mary married Brice Stewart on January 30 1798 in Franklin Co VA. Waitman Richards stood surety.
Mary's sister, Sarah "Sally" Hodges, had previously married Waitman Richards  VA, son of Edward [1731-1812] and Elizabeth Stewart-Richards of about 6.5 miles south of Rocky Mount in Franklin County VA. The Stewart, Richards, England, Warren, and Jones families, including Brice and Mary, emigrated together through the Cumberland Gap from Virginia into Tennessee in 1814. Most settled in Robertson County, but some in Roane and Morgan Counties.
After 16 years in Tennessee, most of the same family groups moved northward into Illinois, settling in North Otter Township of Macoupin County in 1828-1830. Some later moved on to Missouri, as was true of Brice and Mary. Zachariah and Caleb Richards, relatives of Brice and Mary, led their families into Andrew County in north west MO ; several England families into Benton Co MO, others went into south west Iowa.
