In the obituary notice of Dr. William Allen Pusey (The Journal, September 7, p. 872) it was stated that his grandfather was John T. Hodgen, former President of the American Medical Association. The actual relationship was as follows: "Dr. Pusey's father, Dr. Robert B. Pusey, married Belle Brown, daughter of Alfred M. Brown, who was the son of William Brown who settled in Kentucky in 1790. Alfred M. Brown had a sister who married Jacob Hodgen of Hodgenville, Ky. One of their children was John T. Hodgen, who became a physician and settled in St. Louis and later was made President of the American Medical Association. Actually, Dr. John T. Hodgen was a nephew of the grandfather of Dr. William Allen Pusey."
