Dear stkady2007,
There are alot of Hodges in Clarenton County, SC. My grandmother was a Hodge from Plowdens Mill about 17 miles from Sumter, SC. The Clarenton Co. Archives in Manning SC are excellent in their research. Their number is 1-803-435-0328
email is clarentonarchives@s.c.rr.com.
The Hodges resemble each other in that first they are beautiful people! I've never heard of a Frank Hodge but Manning SC has alot of old cemeteries and the archivies would help. I'm sorta new at this to but love it. The little town my grandmother was from was Alcolu SC or other known as Plowdens Mill. Her family is burried at Trinity Methodist Cemetery, in Alcolu or Manning. There is also a huge cemetery in the town of Manning. It is a town with alot of rich history and at the court house they have excellent records which are wonderful to look at.
The Hodges do resemble each other they do have sorta a olive complexion, grandmother was very short, but her brothers were tall. My grandmother was Mrs Minnie Hodge Boseman, a very good Christian lady who loved her family and she still has 3 brothers living. Good Luck. jsgoodwin 11/15/2010

The olive complexion could come from working in the fields. My grandmother was born on the June Burn Road in Manning or Alcolu.
