OBITUARIES

Elizabeth Dodson

Elizabeth Dodson was born in Jefferson County, April 10, 1845, 
died March 25, 1912, at her home in Rome township.
            
She was married to Solomon Dodson May 28, 1862.  To this union 
ten children were born, four living, six having preceded her to 
the great beyond.
            
She was converted when 18 years of age at Old Zion, and united 
with the Church at that place.  Later she moved her membership to 
New Hope, where she remained a member till her death.
            
She had been afflicted for a long time, and at times her sufferings 
were almost more than she could bear, but she bore it patiently till 
the last, and has often been heard to say that she was ready to go 
when the Lord called.
            
She was a true faithful wife and a good mother, and nothing pleased 
her more than to know that her children were trying to serve the God 
she had served so long. She will be missed by those who knew her best.
