Hi Cay and Mary in Wyoming,

I hope this doesn't get too confusing.

Norma in Tacoma WA

The Robert Hodgin who married Eliza A. Fickle 17 Jan 1876 although probably
related is NOT the Robert Hodgin I am looking for. My Robert Hodgin was born
about 1797 in NC. I found him on the 1850 Federal Census for Cedar Co., MO
while searching for my gggrandmother Sarah Ann Hodgin. She is the mother of
my ggrandfather John Wesley Cox (born in MO 1846) who lived in Mills Co. from
the early 1860s until 1910. Many of the other Cox/Hodgin family from MO also
moved there in the early 1860s. I think Robert Hodgin may have been the
father of Sarah Ann.

Sarah Ann Was born in IN in 1830. She married William Cox March 1, 1846. Son
John Wesley Cox was born Nov 22, 1846. William went to CA in the goldrush and
didn't return. Sarah married Stephen Hodgin (b OH) in 1852. Stephen died in
Mills Co. in Feb. 1869. In Oct 1869 Sarah married J. W. Baker in Mills Co.
They are on the 1870 census for Rawles Twp. There is no record of Sarah or J.
W. after that. They must have left the county before they died. There is also
a John MADDEN on the same page of the 1870 Census with a John WILSON age 18,
living with them.
