Thank you for the opportunity to share my story of my great great  grandfather, Sgt. Lorenzo Hodges and to honor him - a brave soldier.  His  wife Rosetta Coon (my gg grandmother) was the daughter of Joseph & Phoebe  Van Horn Coon.  This Coon family shows residing in Friendship, Allegany, NY  on the 1850 census.  Sometime after that, they moved to Annin, McKean, PA  where she met Lorenzo Hodges. They married in 1855.      ......
