HODGE, ROBERT - One of the “Old Three Hundred” of Austin’s colonists.

In Service Record No. 6780 signed by Captain William H. Patton, commander of the prison guard, it is certified that Mr. Hodge served in the army from March 6 to November 1, 1836 and had participated in the battle of San Jacinto. His name is omitted from the San Jacinto rolls printed in 1836 and he received no donation land for having participated in the battle. He was probably left at the camp opposite Harrisburg on April 21, 1836. He was issued Bounty Certificate No. 90 for 640 acres of land for having served in the army from March 6 to November 1, 1836.

Mr. Hodge was drawing a pension in 1872 while living in Fort Bend County.

(Note: 1 league surveyed in Ft. Bend County)
