Hodge, Clinton D., son of Henry and Lorinda (Stoddard) Hodge, was born in the town of Rutland, Jefferson county, N. Y., February 29, 1868. After completing his schooling he served an apprenticeship at the mason's trade, after which he was engaged for a period of thirteen years in that work, Mr. Hodge was not content to work all his life under others and in 1896 he formed a copartnership with P. H. Brennan and Thomas O'Brien, under the firm name of Brennan, lodge & O'Brien, which is now one of the largest employers of labor in the city and the uniform excellence of their work is due to the fact that no matter how great the number of contracts on hand, every structure receives their personal supervision, Mr. Hodge looking after the mason work of the firm. November 7, 1888, he married Mary P., daughter of Parley G. and Eliza A. (Otis) Woffle of Brownville, and two children have been born to them: Bessie, aged eight, and Gordon, aged six. Mr. Hodge is widely known as a practical builder. His education has been obtained in the school of experience and there is no branch of the industry with which he is not familiar.
