Hi all! I am hitting road blocks everywhere I go. I’m starting to wonder if my 2nd great grandfather may have been adopted, which might explain the lack of records. If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it!!!

Per my mother’s bible;

John Evandel Hodge - b 11/29/1850 Pekin, Illinois, d 5/24/1926 Elm Grove Twp, Illinois.
Married Eva May Westapher (Westoffer) - b 5/23/1965 Illinois, d 1/02/1949 Illinois
- 5 CHILDREN - All born in Illinois:
Nellie Elmira Hodge - b 1894, d 1942
Archie Raymond “Ray” Hodge - b 1886, d 1935
Chester Hodge - b 1889, d unknown
William Earl Hodge - b 1891, d unknown
Balance Pearl Hodge - b 1898, d 1980

I decend from Archie Raymond Hodge

Archie Raymond Hodge b 8/13/86 Illinois, d 10/19/35 Illinois
Married Sadie “Sara” Elizabeth Snyder - b 4/20/86 Kansas, d 11/21/74 California
1 CHILD together:
Betty Rae Hodge - b 1/17/1927 Illinois, d 12/31/1988 California

Betty Rae Hodge - b 1/17/1927 Illinois, d 12/31/1988 California
Married Frank William Mead - b 5/11/1922 Michigan, d 4/04/11 California
3 CHILDREN together (Betty has 1 other from prior marriage)
Bert William Mead - b 1948, d 1997
Randy Charles Mead - b 1954, Living
Linda Marie Mead - b 12/16/1958 Michigan, Living.

I’m trying to find John Evandel Hodge’s parents. I’ve ordered a death certificate and his parents are listed as Unknown. Census records say their birth places are Illinois. I can not locate any legitimate facts regarding parents or siblings. Anything you might have would be overly and extremely appreciated!
