Miss Hoge Dead.
Well Known and Much Esteemed Lady Passes Away.

Miss Mary Hoge, a much esteemed maiden lady, died at her home, in this city, last Friday morning.  Miss Hoge had been an invalid nearly all of her life.  Her last violent illness, however, was of short duration.

Miss Hoge, with her two sisters, Mrs. M. E. Patten and Miss Augusta Hoge, came to Cartersville about ten years ago, from near Chickamauga Park, Tenn., where they had resided for a number of years. They formerly lived in Atlanta, belonging to one of the best known and most prominent families of that city.  Their brother, Hon. E. F. Hoge, represented Fulton county in the legislature in the seventies and was a conspicuous figure in body.

The Misses Hoge and Mrs. Patten lived alone at their home on west Main street.  Since their removal to Cartersville they have impressed every one they have met with their rare refinement, fine womanly qualities and great strength of character.  No ladies in the city have done more for different worthy causes than they have.  In church work especially they have been ever active and faithful, being loyal and strong members of the Presbyterian church.  The sisters were all strongly devoted to each other and the breaking of the circle is a sad event.

Miss Hoge leaves, besides her two sisters, two brothers, Messrs. Samuel and Joseph Hoge, of Macon.

The funeral took place from the home Saturday afternoon, Rev. W. A. Cleveland, pastor of the Presbyterian church, conducting the funeral services.  The remains were interred at Oak Hill cemetery.
