Craig Hodgetts was born in Cincinnati, OH, spending his entire childhood in the same house in which he had been born. In 1940, his parents, Edward and Helen Hodgetts resided in a single-family dwelling at 5741 Marmion Lane in the Pleasant Ridge neighborhood northeast of downtown. (See, Source Citation Year: 1940; Census Place: Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio; Roll: m-t0627-03195; Page: 4A; Enumeration District: 91-235, accessed 01/24/2023.) The 1950 US Census found the Hodgetts Family living in the same residence. (See, Source Citation United States of America, Bureau of the Census; Washington, D.C.; Seventeenth Census of the United States, 1950; Record Group: Records of the Bureau of the Census, 1790-2007; Record Group Number: 29; Residence Date: 1950; Home in 1950: Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio; Roll: 1447; Sheet Number: 12; Enumeration District: 91-483, accessed 01/24/2023.) In both 1940 and 1950, the household consisted of Craig's parents Edward and Helen and his brother Kent, about a year-and-a -half younger. In 1958, the Hodgetts Family remained at 5741 Marmion Lane. (See Cincinnati, Ohio, City Directory, 1958, p. 609.)


His father Edward William Hodgetts (born 04/23/1905 in OH-d. 02/16/1982 in Sarasota, FL) who worked in 1940 as an electrical engineer for a electrical utility and as an assistant advertising manager for a private power company ten years later. (See Cincinnati, Ohio, City Directory, 1951, p. 534.) In 1958, Edward was Director of Promotion, Advertising and Publicity for the Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company. (See Cincinnati, Ohio, City Directory, 1958, p. 609.) He remained with Cincinnati Gas and Electric until 02/1971, when he became Director of Promotion for the University of Cincinnati Athletic Department. He remained in this job for about one year. (See "Edward Hodgetts, Former CG&E Executive," Cincinnati Enquirer, 02/18/1982, p. D-3.)

Craig's mother Helen (born c. 1914 in OH), managed the household and gave piano lessons. During the 1940s she performed with the Cincinnati Keyboard Club, and sponsored recitals for her students. According to the 1940 US Census, Edward had graduated from college, while Helen was a high school graduate.

Edward remained married to Helen in 1958, although at some point during the 1950s or 1960s, their marriage dissolved. He was recorded as having been married and divorced to a Ruth Hodgetts, who completed divorce proceedings against him on 03/28/1969 for "gross neglect of duty." (See, Source Citation Ohio Department of Health; Columbus, Ohio; Ohio Divorce Index, 1962-1963, 1967-1971 and 1973-2007, accessed 01/24/2023.) An article covering the wedding of Kent Hodgetts in 1967 indicated that he was the son of Edward W. Hodgetts and "Mrs. Helen Brothers." (See "Wedding at Home," Cincinnati Enquirer, 12/23/1967, p, 13.)

Edward retired to Sarasota, FL, in 1972, where he lived for the last ten years of his life. His obituary indicated that he was survived by a third wife, Mae, Craig Hodgetts and Kent Hodgetts and a daugther, Anita Mason. (Anita Mason was likely a step-daughter.) (See "Edward Hodgetts, Former CG&E Executive," Cincinnati Enquirer, 02/18/1982, p. D-3.)

Kent Lawes Hodgetts (born 10/1939 in Cincinnati, OH) married Latane Temple Keeler on 12/23/1967. They divorced in 04/1975 in Alameda County, CA. (See, Source Information: California, U.S., Divorce Index, 1966-1984 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 2007, accessed 01/24/2023.) Kent attended Walnut Hills High School, Earlham College and the University of Cincinnati. In 1967, he was on staff of the San Francisco Art Institute and by 1969 taught art, sculpture and plastics at Sonoma State University. (See "Wedding at Home," Cincinnati Enquirer, 12/23/1967, p, 13.) Kent later would live in Berkeley, CA, and Westport, CT, and Santa Barbara, CA.
