Alta W. Hodgin,
Daughter of Ozro and Julia Hodgin, was born in Wayne county, Indiana, March 21, 1876, and departed this life on the evening of Nov. 10, 1901; aged twenty-five years, seven months and twenty days.  She was confined to her bed for a period of eight weeks, during which time, supported by her unfaltering faith and confidence in God, she gradually, patiently and peacefully lost strength until the end came.  

She was converted very early in life during a series of meetings conducted by Ira Johnson and Henry Pickett, at the same time uniting with the Friends' Church, and since that time she has lived a consistent Christian life, ever ready to perform any service required of her.  

Though modest and retiring, she was always eager to help the sick and aflicted and ever willing to sacrifice her own comforts for those around her.  She was married to Charles F. Hinshaw, July 26, 1897, and he, with father, mother and three sisters has preceded her to that Heavenly Home [sic].  But our loss is her eternal gain, and her memory shall ever shine forth as a "beacon light," leading us on to lives of usefulness and inspiring us with renewed energy to do well our part that our last days may, like her's, give evidence of the sweet rest and peace of those that die in the Lord.  

She made mention during her sickness that if it was the Lord's will she would like to live but her uppermost theme was that the will of God might be perfected in her life, and as her strength failed and she realized the approach of death she called her family to her bedside, one by one, bidding each in turn goodbye, requesting them to meet her in Heaven saying:

I'll soon be at home where
I'll be robed in whiteness,
Clad in brightness.
Praise his hold name.

Funeral services at Friends' Church at Jericho conducted by Ira Johnson and Henry Pickett, after which the remains were laid to rest in the cemetery near by to await the resurrection morn.
