Mollie Riddle Surratt (1852 - 1938)*
The quote on his marker, "In my hands no gift I bring, only to Thy cross I cling" is from the third verse of his favorite hymn, Rock of Ages. Even as he was dying, he wrote a letter to his congregation at Antioch, and requested that the hymn be sung at his funeral.
