Subject: Frank Hodson
I am the grandson of Frank HODSON one of 6 to
his marriage to Nelly White his second wife. He had three children to
Nelly, Frank who was killed in in a motor bike accident at the age of 25
and is buried at Leamington Hastings in Warwickshire (with his mother
Nelly ) Barbara who has four children and who sadly died in the
1970s and Peggy, my mother, who is still with us and living in
Sad to say Frank was not the most worthy
member of the family abandoning my
grandmother with 7 Children. Until today I have not been able
to find a likeness of him or much information of my maternal line.
your web site is most informative and helps
with my search for information on both the Hodson/Marshal line and the
White line which was my Grandmothers.

Dear Mr Hodson,
In researching the early membership list of Longcliffe Golf Club I
founders year 1906 the following became members.
Mr FW Hodson,Mrs FW Hodson, Mr W Hodson, Miss Lucy Hodson & Miss
Are you able from your records to determine whether these are members
your family ? I see on your website that FW Hodson the son
of George Hodson
was a benefactor of the Endowed Schools - I wonder could this be the
Any information you could supply would be most appreciated. Many
It's quite possible that the Hodson family members were
members of the Longcliffe Golf Club. Most of my ancestors were from the
Loughborough area and hence could very well have been members. FW Hodson
was the son of George Hodson and his wife Lucy and had a daughter Miss
Lucy Hodson as well as a daughter Miss Florence (Florrie Hodson) so you
see it fits quite nicely. They were a family of means so would most likely
be members of "The Club".
Thanks for taking the time to contact me. It is a very
interesting and enlightening piece of information.

Thanks for this information.
I think Lucy matrried John Stenson Turner, born in
Coalville in 1871. I have his wife's name a Lucy, but I don't know
where I got that information. It must have been given to me by a
cousin I have been in touch with. I have no record of any
children, yet think there might have been.
Are you interested in the ancestors of John Stenson
Subject: Re: Stenson
Thanks for your reply.
I have a John Stenson Turner, born 1871 in Coalville
Leicestershire. His parents were William Turner and had siblings
William Jepson Turner and Caroline Ellen Turner.
I also have a Jessett Stenson Turner, born 1887 in
London. His parents were John Stenson Turner (born 1837) and
Emma Elizabeth Bassett Jessett and had a sister Eva Mary
Either one of these could be your Stenson
Where were Lucy Ellen Hodson and Stenson Turner
married? Where was Lucy Ellen born?
I have just seen on your web page that Lucy
Ethel Hodson married Stenson Turner in 1917. Can you tell me
anything more about Stenson Turner - date of birth, parents, death,
etc? I am sure that he is part of my family and just need a bit more
to tie him in properly.
I really enjoyed reading your write up on your Dad. I hope you
won't mind, but I wouldn't mind doing more on my Dad, I like the way
you included the sound of the oboe, I might even be able to find a
sound of my dad at work. lol Anyway, I will be going through some
more pictures and if I can find some of when we went on holiday's,
it could make things show how he like to camp and travel, by
car, or camper. I'll let you know, but if it's to difficult to add
on then let me know and I'll leave things as they are.
Subject: Hodson Family
I just discovered this site and I'm quite glad to have found
it. My name is
Michael (Mike) Hodson, son of Dale (Hodson) Burnett, daughter of
Robert L. (Buster) Hodson. I'm a bit of an odd case
because I carry my
mother's maiden name rather than my Father's name (Cowan).
After my Grandmother Alice passed away last year, I purchased the
she had lived in for almost 50 years. I have a box of old
slides that might
contain some photos that would go nicely with this web site of yours.
that my aunt Diane has posted in your guest book about some photos
aunt Donna might have to share.
There is an addition to your family tree with the sad news that my
Uncle Bill (White) died on Wednesday morning, 19th May. He had had
Leukaemia for about 10 years but worsened after Easter.
My mother is now the only one of that generation.
More in time,
Good to hear from you. Not only have I read the diary, I actually
have it in my possession and have done a full transcription in a computer
file. I have sent copies to Uncle Bill, my mother and to Bill and Ardyth.
Many years ago Florence took a photocopy as she had an idea to get it
published, but I think she did not manage that.
In 1998 My husband David and I flew in our twin Commanche to
Vanvouver Island. On the way back we stopped in Saskatoon. hired a car and
drove to Watrous and Simpson. We saw the grain elevator that my
grandfather built and enough to imagine what the townships were like when
they were there. There has not been a huge amount of development since! I
have not as yet been able to identify exactly where they lived - but I
hope to, one day.
Please keep me informed as to your progress. I have extremely fond
memories of my granny who made dolls clothes for me and told stories about
life in Canada when I was ill. I am keen therefore to discover more. My
mother is also working on ths, so that her memories are preserved for

Our Dad - Robert L. Hodson (Buster)
Born September 25, 1912 Deceased May 16,
Our Mom - Alice Christina
Born February 19, 1919 Deceased August 25,
Just spoke to Donna on the phone - she has
some old pictures which she will send to your website - Hughie (her husband) will have to help her, as she really
isn't into computers.
Hopefully you'll receive them soon.
I am going to get together with Donna soon
and go through all the pictures. I don't know how much info you want about our family, so let me know.
Ciao for now

Hi recieved your web page and Ed and I have
looked at it you have done a great job we will think about some of your
questions and add to it when we get time . We'll let Ed's mom look at it
and she might know some one also.
Subject: re: Web
Dear Cuz: The first bit I have found which needs to be
fixed is where grandma Hodson died. She had been living with us for a long
time and had not been able to get out of her bed for many months.
She and I shared a room and there is where she passed away. I slept
through the whole ordeal, my mother gratefully reported. Next time we talk
I will give you the story as remembered by a seven year-old.
Hi Fred and
I hope things are going well
with you and yours. I got your letter and had a quick look at your
web site, boy you sure have your work cut out for you! When Mom
passed away and I'll get those dates for you, the same with Dad,
Wendy sorted a bunch of pictures. All are old and I don't think I
know half the people in them, but I'm sure some one will remember
them. If you like and I get the time, I'll scan them and send them
to you, or would you rather have the pictures and scan them
yourself? I would think you have things set on your scanner so all
the pictures come out close to the same size and anyone sending
something on their own, might end up with you having huge pictures
or one's you can't see?
I could do a little thing about
Wendy to add to our part of the clan, if that is what your looking
for. Wendy's oldest girl, Kathy has a new baby and Lance and Cindy
had a fresh one on January 3 of this year. Did I get to be a
Granddad before you?
