I am looking for the ancestors of William and Nancy Hodge/Hodges. William Hodge/Hodges married Martha Sasseen in 1842 in Jefferson County Tennessee. Nancy Hodge/Hodges married John Sasseen in 1841 in Jefferson County. Both Sasseen /Hodge families migrated to Keokuk County Iowa in the late 1840's. I am guessing they are related. Other Sasseen members married several people from the "French" family but stayed in Tennessee. Census data says Williams father was born in North Carolina and mother in Virginia. Thanks in advance..
