Henry Dodge Family Information
For a long time, actually, for years, this families' ancestry was a mystery. We had an idea that it belonged to the family of Rev. Josiah Rogers Dodge, but had no proof. In 2004, we received mail from an ancestor who went to Hardin County, Kentucky, and found the proof that indeed, as we had thought, Henry was the son of Josiah Dodge and his first wife, Drusilla Hendricks. They also had two girls, Jane, b. abt. 1815 and d. 1880 who married #1. Samuel Humphreys, July 30, 1835 in Hardin County, Kentucky, and #2. David Pointer, Dec. 8, 1866, in Knox County, Illinois ... and ... Susan, b. abt. 1821. Susan m. Charles Howell, Nov. 30, 1840, in Hardin County, Kentucky.
