Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Miami, Fla., and now living in South Carolina since 1979, I've been a minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) for more than 33 years and was a member of the U.S. Air Force and S.C. Air National Guard for almost 40 years. I retired from the Air Force in Feb. 2010 as a Major (almost 13 years enlisted and more than 27 years a commissioned officer). My wife, Judy, and I have four grown children: a daughter, three sons, and six grandchildren. Our daughter is a former teacher and now a full-time mother in Virginia. Our three sons have fulfilled and are continuing to fulfill their duty to their country as military members of the Air Force and the Marines. I enjoy photography, genealogy, and helping others in their genealogical quests. I am glad to be able to try to fulfill photo requests as time permits. I am pastor of the Salem Presbyterian Church (founded 1812) in Fairfield County (SC) located about 32 miles north of Columbia. I am a graduate of Miami Senior High School, Miami, Fla., 1968; The Citadel, Charleston, S.C., 1972, Charleston, S.C., and Columbia International University, Columbia, S.C., 1984, as well as numerous DoD and USAF schools. I am a descendant of Joshua Hodges, Sr., (R.S.) (1736-1809), Nathaniel Hodges, (1777-1858), Wade Payton Hodges, (1822-1877), Nathaniel Thomas Hodges, (1860-1943), Charles Groover Hodges, Sr., (1889-1980), and Charles G. Hodges, Jr., (1920-2013) I am also a descendant of the Trulocks from south Georgia, specifically Gordon Byron Trulock, (C.S.A.) On my mother's side, I am a descendant of the Jones, Rhodes, Trawick, McCall, and Sammons families of Dale and Barbour counties, Alabama.

Hello! I went and viewed the memorial and on my screen the photo was oriented properly. But to help you out, I deleted the photo and uploaded it again. Once again it's still oriented properly when I view it.

If it gives you trouble again I'm
Not sure what we can do?
