Mrs. Eliza Hodges
Mrs. Eliza Hodges was born October 31, 1802, in the town of Crown Point, Essex county, New York. She accepted Christ as her Savior at the age of 22, and became a member of the Presbyterian church, of which she remained an accepted, and honored member until called from labor to reward, which occurred Oct. 13, 1889, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M. A. Blowers, Muldrow, Kansas. Mrs. Hodges when 20 years of age, was united in marriage to Deacon Drusur Hodges, and by him became the mother of twelve children, of whom four preceded her to the Heavenly Canaan. Five sons and the daughters are left to mourn their loss. Although the life this good mother lived shall remain to her children, a rich legacy to cheer them in the thought that their loss is her eternal gain, since she exchanges the infirmities of extreme old age for Immortal youth, and endless joy. Funeral services conducted by the writer, text, Rev. 14:13, "blessed are the dead which die in the Lord."
