Thanks for this posting. Gresham divorced Jane Leprade & married Elizabeth Blankenship Ward, Jan 8, 1879. In the 1880 census, there were 6 Ward children living with the Hodges. Elizabeth was a half-sister to the Ward children. The oldest, Josephine Ward was my Grandmother. The 4 youngest Ward children changed their names to Hodges, as their Mother died 1877 or 78. I can't find an exact death date. Evidently the Hodges raised them - I don't know - just assuming. Do you live in VA?
