I am trying to trace the family of my maternal grandfather whose name was Daniel Franklin HODGES. I had been told by my mother years ago that his father's name was Creed Clay HODGES, but I can't find any information on either of them or anything that would provide links to where either of them were born. Daniel Franklin HODGES was born about 1864 but I have no idea in what state. I do know that in 1890 he was teaching school in Jonesboro, Arkansas. He evidently left there early in 1891 to take a course at Ewing College in Ewing, Illinois because his students gave him a signed autograph book and one of the autographs in a child's handwriting, was signed, "Your little niece, Ettie Ritter." I don't know whether he returned to Jonesboro, but he met my grandmother at Ewing College and they were later married and lived in Flora, Illinois..

John P. Johnston   Jan. 11, 2002
I am searching for descendants of Thomas Jasper JONES and his wife, Patience Emma JOHNSTON. I know very little about this family. Patience Emma was born ca. 1845 in Georgia and married there in 1863 to Thomas Jasper JONES. At some point, they moved to Craighead County, Ark., where they both died, so far as I know. Patience Emma had a brother, Terrell JOHNSTON, who had moved also to Craighead County. Terrell Johnston's wife died, and he ordered a "mail order" bride back in Georgia. He started back to Georgia on the train to get her, but he got sick and died the day he arrived back in Georgia. I have been told that T. J. JONES and wife Patience Emma were buried at Caldwell's Chapel cemetery, wherever that is. It is, I think, somewhere near Jonesboro. Any assistance will be genuinely appreciated.

I am looking for information on the family of John G. LEWIS and Dora Alice MOSELY. John was born May 31, 1890, and died Nov. 14, 1964. Dora Alice was born March 25, 1890, died April 2, 1940. They are both buried in the Monette Memorial Cemetary in Monette. According to John's obit, he had lived in the Black Oak-Monette area for 43 years, so I believe he moved there in abt. 1921. Prior to that he had lived in Cave City and in Batesville. He was a retired farmer. They had four sons - George Albert, born 1911 in Cave City, Aubrey C. (my grandfather) born in 1918 in Batesville, Elbert, and John W. - and seven daughters - Pearl, Elvie, Estella, Juanita, Norma, and two others whose names I don't know. John remarried after Dora Alice died; his second wife's name was Mary, but I don't have a last name. According to my mother, Mary had a daughter from her first marriage, Pat or Patricia, who also took the name of LEWIS. I am trying to find any information on this family, and would particularly like to know the names of the other two daughters, John's parents, Dora's parents, where they were born, etc. A wonderful lady in Monette was kind enough to go to the cemetary and take pictures of John and Dora's graves for me. The flowers on the graves look as if they were placed there recently, so I am betting that there is still family in the area. If anyone is related or knows any info on the Lewis family, I would be very greatful for anything that would help. Georgiana Norris

Seeking parents of John William WRIGHT. b 1856 TN as were his parents. John moved to AR-don't know about his parents-sometime before his marriage to Martha Travis 1879. All I know about siblings is bro James b TN abt 1859/60 He is living with John and Martha 1880 census Salem Greene AR. Also seeking info on father of Martha, Arthur C. TRAVIS. Perhaps b 1835 IL. m Elizabeth COOPER abt 1860 Craighead Co. As far as I can find out she had no siblings. John is a brick wall for me. I do have info on his children as one son was my father. Thanks for any help or direction I should search.
