I have found Jesse Hodges' cemetery. I have jumped the gun and added Jesse and Nancy Storie Hodges without visiting the cemetery. I have spoken to the landowner and plan to visit tomorrow. I added a family photo of Jesse Hodges and thought you might be interested. 144826195

Same family connections
My ancestors are Greene, Watson and Hodges like yours. Childen of the Greene, Watson and Hodges family's migrated to Coshocton County, Ohio starting in 1920. I know many of their children, and I have been working with William Watson who was born in Ohio but is now living in Tennessee, with our genealogy, which connects through all these surnames. There is a tangled web of marriages among these surnames over the years, both in NC and in OH.

Mary Polly Eldridge
I am a descendant of William & Mary Miller. I noticed you stated that her parents were Thomas Eldridge & Martha Bolling of Albemarle, Va. I don't think this is accurate. William & Mary were long married by 1755. Plus, this would've made the Virginia Mary around 13 years old. I don't see one of Va.'s most prominent families allowing that. Also it's stated Va. Mary married Thomas Branch. Upper crust Virginia families rarely married out of their class either. Though it would be very awesome to say I was related to Pocahontas, I seriously don't think its a reality.
I has been told through generations that William came to NC from England. He worked and saved money to send for his wife Mary. My grandfather said he was English.

Thanks for your time and attention! - Amy Chester Melton

Thomas Clingman. Hodges
You left the following message under the flower section of Thomas Clingman Hodges memorial #76326527:

,He was acutally born Oct. 15, 1873 and died March 20, 1960.

This is not correct. He is NOT listed on the 1880 census with his parents and siblings. If he was born in 1873 he would have been on there listed as 7 years old.
Please do not leave notes in the flower section, per Find a. Grave guidelines. Send a SAC and have info added to the bio, if info is actually correct.

Christian Lewis parents
I'm new to Find-a-Grave. Does anyone have a source for Christian Lewis's parents? I've heard John and Mary Hedrick LEWIS, but don't know where to start with which "John"?? I'm related through William Rufus Lewis.

Jamie,The corner is overgrown;but I don't believe he is buried there. According to relatives he might be in Mississippi;but that's a guess.

I would like to tell you once more. How helpful your notes are that you leave. As a DAR It has helped me in many ways to find the person they connect to.

Sarah J. Lewis

I see you've posted a note on Memorial #11029570, Sarah J. Lewis. Is she an ancestor of yours? If so I'd be happy to transfer that memorial to you, and her husband and daughter.

Please send links to family through the edit tab. I don't see them if just left on a flower. I will go back and find family.
