|Orval Hodges||David Hodges|
Hi Linda, thanks for the inquire of Edmund and Nephany Hodges son David Hodges. There were two David's in Goochland County at that time and it has not been an easy task trying to figure out which one of the David's that appear in the Douglas Register. We had David Hodges who married Mary Alsop and we also had David Hodges who married Elizabeth Page daughter of Robert & Nancy Page. So my answer to your question is the David Hodges who married Elizabeth Page is the son of Edmund and Nephany Hodges. The most convincing evidence is this find, (David's mother Nephany Walker Hodges is living with him in 1789 when the Pittsylvania VA Tax List and Census were taken for 1790).
The David Hodges who married Mary Alsop the daughter of John Alsop (wife unknown) is the son of John Hodges born 1708 and married Ann Johnson, who is the son of Thomas and Christian Hodges. David and Mary Alsop Hodges had a son named William Hodges who married Elizabeth Neel/Neal (Note: Elizabeth Neel is my 1st cousin 5x removed on my Mother's side who was a Neel), who's parents were John & Agnes Midkiff Neel who was born in Martic Township, Pennsylvania and died in Monroe County, Virginia.
So Linda you are hitting ancestors on both sides of my family. As the song goes ‘On my fathers you have the Hodges and on my Mother's side you have the Neel's'.
I hope this somewhat clears up any question you have about our David Hodges and Mary Alsop.
Ok if you want to know anything about the Neel family of Pennsylvania and Virginia please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yours truly, Orval Lee Hodges

Thank you for the note. The memorial has been revised to include the information provided and have placed a request for gravestone photo, if such exists. Fingers crossed.
|Susan Gates Davis||William Welch|
Yes, Linda, I'd be pleased to have you load the image. Who even knows if the stone is still there? Something is better than nothing. Thank you very much!
|Vada L. Long||George Bullock|
I transfer the memorail for George Bullock over to you. I always love to give memorials over to family members whenever I can.
|Jack Weiszer||Lucinda Jewell|
I have no idea if she was a nurse and I have no other information on her. I only recorded the memorial and photographed the stone for Find a grave. I am reluctant to link her to anyone with no more evidence than what you have. Sorry,
|Larry Davis||Mary Louise Bullock Guthrie|
Thank you for posting the bio for Mary Guthrie.
My grandmother was her live-in caregiver from the late 1960's until Mary's death. I was often at Mary's home in Indianapolis and I always enjoyed visiting with her. She was certainly a fine and wonderful lady.
|Billy Burris||Elizabeth Bullock|
Not quite sure what to tell you as from the information we do have it is
very hard to prove so here goes.
In the census records we have:
an Elizabeth Bullock in the Martin Bullock household in Sullivan County
Indiana in 1860 and she is listed as age 18.
This is the only Bullock household in Sullivan County. The census was taken
on July 27, 1860 (the exact date of an Elizabeth Bullock and Turner Colvin's
The 1870 census of Clark County, Orange Township, Illinois shows Elizabeth
Colvin as age 40
In the 1880 census of Clark County, Orange Township, Illinois her age is 35
In the 1900 census for the same place it says she is 54.
Turner's wife Elizabeth according to tombstone says 1833 died on February
10, 1912 age 78 y 3 mo 25 d in the Mt. Olive/Kickapoo cemetery in Orange
Township, Clark County Illinois.
The census for Turner Colvin shows him 45 in 1870--48 in 1880--and 64 in
1900. Tombstone says 1831 died Aug, 12, 1901 age 70 y 4 m 27 d.
I don't think that Elizabeth knew her own true age. In a real estate
transaction for Clark County Illinois dated April 16, 1870, Abel Carnes and
Louise, his wife, sold to Turner Colvin, it indicates that Turner nor
Elizabeth could not read or write--they just made their mark. If we would
have land or probate records for Martin Bullock in Sullivan County it might
give us more information. I have Martin and Susannah Mayfield Bullock's
marriage in Crawford County Illinois on December 28, 1835.
With all this in consideration I believe that your Elizabeth Bullock and the
lady that married My Turner Colvin, are one and the same. Here is how I am
Billy Ray Burris (me), Effie Colvin (my mother), John Colvin (my
Grandfather) Turner Colvin (my Great Grandfather). I live about 5 miles
from the cemetery where Turner and Elizabeth are buried. Will be glad to
share what we have.
Yours truly, Bill
|Linda||Sarah Sutton Welch...|
Thank you for letting me know about Sarah's death date. Headstones do get hard to read at times. :) I don't have the book you mentioned...guess I need to find a copy. I did change the dates for Sarah. My husband descends through Sarah's son - John Welch. John is my husband's 3rd great-grandfather. I don't have anymore information on John and Sarah...wished I did. :) I appreciate you letting me know about the dates.

|Kim Sullivan Potts||Clifford Bullock|
We are descendants from Susan Bullock and Jesse Sullivan. She was the daughter of John Bullock. The Bullock and Sullivan families came west in 1834, I think. My data is in my laptop. However, I do not remember a Clifford. I took over the findagrave memorials because the lady that created them had a bad prognosis of cancer, i think. She gave me a few that we're not my relatives so if Clifford is your relative, I would be delighted to turn him over to your care. I think loved ones should care for loved ones. Anyway, I will double check my genealogy file and let you know what If any relationship exists. Check out Susan's memorial on findagrave.com she had to be a fantastic pioneer woman. We found her grave in march of last year. It was in the Bullock Cemetery, which was hidden in a private woods surrounded by farm ground. The county officials did not know where it was. We happened to find an old timer who remembered it from day's gone by. PS I live 75 miles away from where your Clifford is buried.
