This is my first time logging into Find A Grave. I found your entry for Sarah Alice Swander Hodge and would like to thank you for all the work you've put into uploading that information. I came to tears when I saw the photo of Sarah Alice and the rest of her family. I have read a poem she wrote about the loss of her daughter, Eva Belle, and just seeing a photo of her was an emotional experience. You may be interested to know my grandfather was Lester Dewey Hodge, 1898-1981, a brother of Clarence David and Eva Belle. I met him several times as youth and was told that my great grandfather (George Duncan Hodge and Sarah's husband) held me on his lap during a visit many years ago. Thank you again for all the work you have done to add these memorials to the Internet. I was searching to verify that Sarah Alice was actually William Jefferson Swander's daughter when I found your memorial, confirmed what I thought was true. Best regards, Ken Hodge
PHOEBE ULLEM Curiousity question: See you mention 'cousin' on your flower on Phoebe's memorial - would you happen to be related to the Cooks or Ullems? My ggg grandfather, Jacob Cook, was Phoebe's father and I would be interested in visiting with you if there is a Cook connection! Thank you.
RE: John Adler Thank you so much - it's beautiful. They are my relatives, but never met them. I'm in Tacoma, Washington, but their part of the family settled in Colorado after leaving Kolb, Russia. I really do appreciate this very much. Thank you...
Loa Duggan Thanks for the picture of Loa's headstone it is very much appreciated. They also have a memorial with a headstone with her first husband with her name on it but it is just there in memory. What an unusal and beautiful stone she has. Shirley Modrell Heid
