Emily Helena Lodge (1828-1864) was born in Corfu, off the coast of Greece. Her father was Major James Crummer, British officer of the Napoleonic Wars and the Police Magistrate of Newcastle, Maitland and Port Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia. Her mother was Aikaterini Plessos, the first Greek woman immigrant to Australia. Emily was married to Captain Francis W. Lodge, a well known sea captain. She caught bilious fever and died in her husband's arms while lodging at the Cataract House on October 10, 1864. Her nephew, Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge, famous British physicist and past president of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR), believed in the survival of man after death and often successfully contacted his dead relatives in séances…perhaps, even Emily, herself.
