2. Hodges Council of Virginia and Decendents by Judson Councill, Page 18, The name of Hodges and Lucy's daughter is unknown, but it is inferred because of the following part of Hodges will: I Hodges Council of the Lower Parish do give... to Joseph Vick of ye said parish 50 acres on Beaver Dam Swamp...If Joseph Vick have any other child besides his daughter Lucy, she shall after her father decease of her father enjoy the land. But if Joseph Vick shall have any more children by this his present wife , Luch shall enjoy ye land. ( What this says is that Joseph VicK and Hodges dau had only one child, Lucy. If they had more children that 50 acres should still go to her after her parents death) If Lucy should die the land shall fall to either brother or sister. But if Joseph Vick and his dau should decease without heir, that the land should fall back to Hodges Council or his heirs. As it turns out it is believed that possibly Lucy married a Thomas Parker.
