HODGE, JOHN C. M. (?–?). John C. M. Hodge, Republic of Texas congressman, moved to Texas in December 1840 and was granted 320 acres of land by conditional certificates. From November 14, 1842, to January 16, 1843, he represented Fannin County at the Seventh Congress of the republic. When Collin County was marked off from Fannin County on April 3, 1846, Hodge was made notary public of the new county. He also served with the commissioners in charge of holding an election to choose a county seat. He came to Texas a single man and apparently did not marry while he was a resident of Collin County. He does not appear to have lived in Collin County after 1848.
