Military Service by Kilbourne Residents[edit]

The Hodgkins Brothers. The story of the Hodgkins brothers illustrates a great example of military service to our country by Kilbourne residents. Edgar Grambry and Emma Elizabeth Rutherford Hodgkins had seven sons and three daughters. During World War II, six of their sons served their country in various branches of the United States military - three in the Army, two in the Navy, and one in the Coast Guard. The youngest son, just twelve at the time, was left to serve on the home front caring for and helping support his mother and two younger twin sisters. Their unique stories have been collected and compiled by their children and grandchildren and is on prominent display in the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum in Monroe, LA.
