Bible of Nettie McAfee Rose Mason
(Most entries in the her own handwriting.  A few entries in the handwriting
 of Lucy Mason Hodge.  This is a fairly large file and may take some time to load.)

Bible of Mary Caroline Morgan Sewell Mobley
(In her own handwriting.  There are very few entries here, but they are important
 ones.  This is the only record I have ever found of the child that Mary Caroline had
 with her first husband George Washington Sewell.)

Bible of Ivy Ethelyn Frankum Wilcoxen
(In her own handwriting.  1 pages omitted to protect privacy of living relatives. )

Bible of the Tilman Wilcoxen family 
(contributed by Carolyn Wilcoxen)

Hodge-Colman Bible Records
(Contributed by Marty Hodge; records pertaining to the Henry Hodge Sr. family.
The Bible was originally in the possession of Mary Dancy Hodge.  After her death,
the Bible was purchased in an antique store by a non-relative who was kind enough
to post the information on a Rootsweb board.   Marty was able to obtain photocopies
and then generously shared them with me. )

     a larger document.

Letter from Mary Frances Hodge to the Federal Pension Department 
(Written to plead for monetary help for her parents.)

Letter from Ivy Frankum Wilcoxen to  her aunt, Frances Lentz Rucker
(Written on the occasion of the death of William Henry Frankum.)

Letters from Hezekiah Madison Mobley to daughter Frances Jane Lewis

Letter from John Morgan Mobley to nephew Horace Hodge & wife Lucy
(Written in response to Horace & Lucy having requested him to fill out affidavits in support

 birth record, the couple apparently never followed through with  securing the additional affidavits or
with the filing of the documents for record.)
