DRYDEN, TILLMAN posted by William H. Adams on Saturday, June 14, 1997

William H. Adams Mon Jan 13 00:01:04 1997
John TILLMAN was born in Somerset Co. MD in 1705 and died in Preble Co. OH in 1809. He married Eva DRYDEN. In about 1740 they moved to Dobbs Co. NC (Peters 1953:150). His son, Tobias TILLMAN, was born in Orange Co. NC on June 5, 1751, so the family had moved there by then. His son Tobias appears on the tax lists from 1780-81 in Orange Co. and then 1782-87 in Botetort Co. and so he likely lived there with his son and at some other time in Orange Co. VA (Peters 1953:150), then Knox Co. TN. In 1805 he moved to Preble Co. OH with child and grandchildren. I am looking for information concerning his time in Dobbs Co. and especially data about his wife and possible other children. Only Tobias is known.

Seeking information on Richard HODGES (b.1740's- d.1800/05), believed to be son of Francis HODGES, SR., and Frances CARRUTHERS of New Bern, who was living in Dobbs County near Wheat Swamp at the time of the American Revolution. He had (I think) two sons: (1) Richard HODGES, JR., (d. 1842, Wayne County), who married Lydia DAWSON (b. 1792), dght. of Thomas DAWSON and Elizabeth HARDY, and (2) Edward HODGES (b. ca. 1780-d. 1815/20, Lenoir County), who was the first husband of Catherine ARENDELL (b. 1780's- d. 1830's), dght. of William ARENDELL (will dated 1822) of Lenoir County. There were likely several daughters as well. Brothers Joshua HODGES and Francis HODGES, JR. are known to have relocated to Burke and Bulloch Counties, Georgia, in the 1780's. Another brother, Hardy HODGES, may have died in the revolution. I am especially interested in knowing the name of Richard's wife, and in obtaining any information available on his son, Edward.
