Mary Schofield "Mamie" Wood Hoag
Birth: Jan. 23, 1872
Washington County
New York, USA
Death: May 5, 1914
Greenwich
Washington County
New York, USA

Mary "Mamie" Scofield Wood married Albert Allan Hoag June 18, 1898. They lived in Greenwich, NY at the family home of Albert's father, Jonathan E. Hoag. Mamie unfortunately passed away in 1914 after bearing four children, Frances Arlene, Dwelle, and twins Meredith and Martha. (Writer is Dwelle's daughter.)

Allan and Mamie enjoyed music together. Allan had a fine tenor voice and sang solos while Mamie, played the organ and often sang with him at the Easton Dutch Reformed Church. Easton was at that day noted for its concerts and musical evenings and for its amateur theatricals, plays, minstrels, etc. at the Seminary and later Burton Hall.

Both Allan and Mamie are buried in the Hoag Family Plot in Greenwich Cemetery. (The addition of the "h" in Scofield gravestone is believed to be an error.)

Mamie's father-in-law, Jonathan E. Hoag, wrote several memorial poems after her early death.

"TO OUR DEAR MAMA

Dear mama, you didn't tell us
That you felt you were to die;
Didn't come to kiss your babies;
And we didn't then know why.

When we saw you in the morning,
We believed you fast asleep;
Yet we felt so strange a stillness
That it almost made us weep.

There papa sat close beside you;
And we heard his moaning cry;
And the house seemed very quiet;
And we didn't then know why.

There so many stood about you;
And we saw them turn and cry.
All at once a man was praying;
And we didn't then know why.

Now in summertime with papa
We plant pretty little flowers,
That mama once loved so dearly,
Wet with early morning showers.

Oft in stilly night we're dreaming
Of our dear mama at rest,
Down beneath the fragrant cedars,
Where the singing birds still nest!" 1922 J.E.H


"IN MEMORIAM - To Mamie Hoag (May 5, 1914-May 5, 1919)

Five years ago this lovely day,
Five saddened years have passed away;
And we, who spread thy casket o'er,
Yet think of thee as oft before.

Each day we to thy memory yearn,
When winter fades and birds return,
And Nature grants us golden hours,
Yet mourns thee in her springtime showers."
