My maternal grandmother, Martha Wood (HANCOCK) HODGE, died in 1906 when my mother was 11 years old. John McClellan HODGE was married three times. My mother was his youngest child by his third wife. A few months after my grandmother died my mother and her father went to live with his eldest daughter by his first wife, who had two daughters about my mother’s age. Several years later, grandfather HODGE gave my mother and his two granddaughters large fancy photo albums of family pictures. This had always been in our family and my mother told us about some of the people pictured there: a picture of my grandmother and a picture of a very old woman who mother said was her grandmother. This was the only picture of her that we knew ofand as far as we knew, we had no picture of John B. HANCOCK, my maternal great-grandfather. for more click here
