Lydia Martin Dwelle Hoag
Birth: Jan. 19, 1835
Washington County
New York, USA
Death: Aug. 1, 1906
Washington County
New York, USA

Lydia Martin Dwelle was the third wife of Jonathan E. Hoag. She married Jonathan on June 21, 1865 at age 30, Jonathan was 34. Lydia passed away at age 71 in 1906. Jonathan Hoag passed away in 1927 and they are buried together at Greenwich Cemetery New York. Mr. Hoag's first two wives passed away young and their marriages to Jonathan were short lived: Elizabeth Roberson 1860-1864, and Mary Wilcox died in 1857 age 27.

Lydia and Jonathan had one child, Albert Allan Hoag, born 1867. He married Mary Scofield "Mamie" Wood and had four children. Lydia and Jonathan lived on the Hoag Farm in Easton, NY. Allan and Mamie also later lived there.

Lydia was actively involved in Easton's Political Equality Club (for women's votes) which began in 1891.

Here is a lovely memorial given by the Easton PEC founder Chloe Sisson when Lydia died in 1906 of typhoid.

'In all the days of sorrow and loneliness, we trust you [PEC members] will be comforted by your unfaltering faith in the Eternal Goodness of Lydia M. Hoag. This Society has lost a loyal member who for fifteen years has by her example and influence and her generous aid in every emergency been one of its most devoted advocates. She recognized that Political Equality is fundamental to all reformers in that it will give woman a leverage without which most of her efforts must always be ineffective, and she was fearless in the expression of her opinions. The Easton PEC records its respect and admiration for her life, and its sorrow and sense of loss in her death.'

Writer is Lydia's Great Granddaughter.
