The Viola Gertrude Hodge I refer to would be my grandmother who died in November 1905 in child birth. The baby lived, my aunt Mary Viola McCuistian. She was two years younger than my dad, Marion Luke McCuistian.
Where does your mother live?
Viola Gertrude Hodge was born in 1887 and married my grandfather who was widowed, having 7 sons and a daughter when his first wife died in 1898. She was very young and my grandfather, Francis Marion McCuistian was 51. They lived at Wimberley, Texas. Granddad left there in about 1911, I think.
They eventually lived at Olney, Texas. I am Lewis McCuistian, 10020 Hanford Dr., Denton, Tx.76207.
Dad's half-siblings included Mattie, the youngest who lived in Demming New Mexico. I have a rather complete McCuistian geneology but didn't know anything about the Hodge line before John McClellan, Viola' dad.
I have a picture of him.
