I am descended from the Crews line from Lawrence County, Tennessee.  I would like information on my great-great grandmother Melissa CREWS. Census records indicate her mother being born in Virginia and father North Carolina.  She was born December 1843 in Mooresville, Tennessee in Marshall County.  Her first husband was Charles FITZPATRICK from West Maryland, Virginia.  Their child was George SCOTT, born, January 5, 1855 Mooresville, Tennessee; died March 25, 1928 Cairo, Illinois in Alexander County. Louis HODGE was her second husband. 

I would love to hear from anyone with information. You can find more on my families as well as links to other Crews and Hodge researchers at

I am interested in finding any information on the following relatives and their descendents.   My great-great grandfather Louis HODGE was born about 1816 in North Carolina.  He married Melissa CREWS in Dyers County Tennessee on May 19, 1866 according to freedmanís marriage records.  They resided in Obion County, Tennessee in the 1880 census with their children Aaron (born 1865; Tennessee), John (born 1866; Tennessee), Lucinda HODGE O'NEAL (born Aug/24/1872), Lena HODGE MCCLELLAND (b: Feb/13/1875; Tennessee) and Millie (born Jun/02/1878; Tennessee).    

Melissa HODGE married Jeff Manion in 1889 in Pulaski County, Illinois.  She lived there until after the 1910 census.  I would like to know where she died?

NO trace of Aaron HODGE has been found to date other than the 1880 census.  I would like to know more about him.

John HODGE was listed in the 1900 Pulaski County, Illinois census living with his mother Melissa.  Also in the household with Malissa at the time were grandson Louis and daughter Millie.  I found grandson Louis in the SSDI having died 1969 in Obion County, Tennessee. His mother was Lula BOWDEN.  His wife was Lula HODGE.   I would really love to hear from his descendents and know who his parents were. .  John later moved to East St. Louis, Illinois where he died on July 22, 1919. 

Lucinda Hodge married Robert O'NEAL who was born Jan/01/1868 in Grand Chain, Illinois, and died Oct/17/1937 in St. Louis, Missouri.  Their children were:   George Arthur O'NEAL, born Dec/26/1890, Maunie, Illinois; died Mar/28/1972, St. Louis, Missouri,  Hattie O'NEAL, born Dec/31/1893, Grand Chain, Illinois; died Jul/11/1952, St. Louis, Missouri and Amanda O'NEAL, born Nov/09/1895, Grand Chain, Illinois; died Feb/15/1910, Cairo, Illinois.

Lena HODGE was my great-grandmother. She married Witt MCCLELLAND Known children were Lillian, Pearlie, Melvin, Elic, John (my grandfather), James, Marie and Mabel.  I believe they raised their children in Pulaski County, Illinois. 

Malissa CREWS HODGE also had another son, George SCOTT.  George was born in Mooresville, Tennessee in Marshall County.  He married Amanda Gunerson September 13, 1935 in Cairo, Illinois. George died March 25, 1938 in Cairo. 

Louis and Melissa both had families prior to their marriage.  I would be interested in information on those families.  It  would be especially thrilling to learn of other relatives.   Thanking you in advance. Deborah Davis
