Notes


John husband of Patience Joyner moved to what later became Pitt County NC about 1725, and his children and grandchildren moved to Twiggs County Georgia at various times in the early 1800s. Later, they moved to Bossier Parish, Louisiana.


COLONIAL & REVOLUTIONARY FAMILIES OF NORTH CAROLINA
(1) John Hodges had a land patent in Edgecombe Precinct of Edgecombe Co., NC June 8, 1739 (Colonial Records of NC by Saunders, page 350). He "proved his rights" in Edgecombe County on May 5, 1742 (Col. Rec. Vol. IV, pages 617,618) Edgecombe Precinct became a county on April 4, 1741 (Vol. 2 No. 3, NC Register by Hathaway. Page 412).


from " Colony of NC 1735-1764 , Abstracts of Land Patents , Vol. I " , by Margaret M. Hofmann : Patent Bk. 5 -- 3362 pg. 336 JOHN HODGES 20 Nov. 1739 300 acres in Edgecombe County on the N. side of Tarr River , joining the Pocoson and the river Pocosin.
(Wm Standard & Abel Waddell were m. Edgecombe Co. NC. abt 1760.)


John Hodges bought land in Beaufort Co., NC in June 1745 from his brother Elias (270 acres for 400 lbs. See Book 2, page 441 Register of Deeds' Office Beaufort County.)
One John Hodges gave land to John Jr. in Beaufort Co., NC in 1752 and 1756. John Hodges was, no doubt, ancestor of same of the Hodges in Pitt County and possibly also of the same in Edgecombe and Bertie, as he had owned land in all three counties. The author knows nothing more about this John Hodges.
