Hello “1_r_wheatley” I hope that this message reaches you. You write that your father was Amos Earl Hodges and his mother was Stella. This means that you and I are 1st cousins. I am the son of William Lloyd Hodges the younger brother of Amos. Their parents were Earl Benjamin Hodges, and Stella Mae (Burris) Hodges. I know quite a bit about the family line. Your father was born in Texas, and they moved to Oklahoma about 1930. In fact the Hodges family has been in Texas since around 1840; Stella’s father (Allen Burris) was born in 1870 in Georgia. I would love speak with you either by email or phone.
