Working a little bit on the DANN family of Hannibal, Oswego Co., NY. One of the daughters married my great uncle William VANDERVEER, an undertaker, of Warners, NY., no children.

Doing census and newspaper research on the Nathan Vickery ROGERS (1859-1936) family of Hannibal and Granby, Oswego county. Nathan's wife was Mary (HUDSON/HODGSON) (1871-1939), daughter of Orville HUDSON/HODGSON and Jennie (TAYLOR.)

Through the use of Godfrey's FindUSA, Ancestry's SSDI, National Gravesite Locator, and newspapers of Minneapolis on-line, I have been attempting to obtain information on a man named Capt. Philander “Phil” HODGSON, who was born in 1910 and died in 1991, was a Captain in the U.S. Army and served in WW II. He is buried along with his wife Elaine O. (1913-2002) in the Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, Hennepin Co., MN.

The unusual name of Philander is one that is the same as a brother of one of my 2nd great grandfathers who went west after the Civil War and I'm just wondering if there is a connection
