The earliest 2012 entries posted here are essentially appendices or collected research notes.
Some are presented to indicate ways a history can be handed down in a family, with names and other details becoming tangled along the way. The apparent errors may even point to connections that became blurred, confused, or merged in the repeated telling. I am, all the same, fascinated by the variations on a single theme.
Other entries may ultimately have no relation to the pioneer Hodgsons of Guilford County, yet add to our understanding of the wider picture that brought Orphan George to North America.
Here they stand, then, pro and con, as documents in their own right.
