Hi Jane,

Range and Township maps are available in almost every county Tax Assessor's
office for a nominal (free to $1.00) fee. As a general guide, Range and
Township lines are about 6 miles apart and the section is a square mile
(640 acres). This patent info shows that all these Hodges lived within 6
miles of each other and patented their land about the same time. It would
seem very odd if they weren't connected in some way. I agree that this is
not proof of their relationship but it gives enough info to trace the land
records. Land transfers within a family is considered proof.

1840 Pike census:
Edmond Hodges male 5-10=2, 50-60=1 female 0-5=2, 10-15=2, 15-20=1, 40-50=1

The 1820 census of Pike lists Drure (Drury) over 45, Edmund 26-45, Jesse
16-26, William 26-45 and Sidney (widow) 26-45.
The 1790 census of Greenville Co., SC lists John over 16, Drury over 16 and
Abel over 16.

Have you looked at the following Jesse? It seems he moved from Pike to
Copiah between 1820 and 1830.
Jesse N. Hodges b. 9/4/1797 S.C. Son of Drury Hodges ?
d. 7/21/1852 Dentville, Copiah Co., Ms.
m. ca 1822, S.C.
sp. Martha (Sullivan?) S.C. b. ? d. 4/24/1867 Dentville, Copiah Co., Ms.

Most of my notes on this family were written by an elderly gentleman many
years ago and they are difficult to decipher. If you can send me group
sheets for the ones you are tracing, I may be able to add to it.
