Brenda Joyce Jerome, CG, at Western Kentucky Genealogy Blog posts the 1874 will of Blount Hodge, which is (literally) a story in itself and, Jerome is pretty sure, "the most interesting one to be found in Livingston County." I've certainly never seen one like it. Hodge comments extensively on his son's character and plotting against him. He had property across the Ohio River in Pope County, Illinois, as well as in Kentucky. Read the whole thing and check out the links.
