This work is dedicated to the memory of (William) Ralph Cody (10 September 1927 -  4 August 1994) of Burlington, North Carolina, who brought to the author's attention the land records of Cody families in Surry County, North Carolina, and Lunenburg County, Virginia. Ralph fostered a brief, but rewarding collaboration.
