Hello Francis,

One of our newer researchers, Sara, with excellent instincts & skills,
located some records that I had not previously seen, unless the the bitters
had me. Looks like our ancestors joined your Ancestors in the 'Hodges'
battalion to resist the invaders. Might you have some of these records?
