About Sarah Hodges

Sarah Hodges Grisemer

  • RMS Lusitania victim

The daughter of Levi B. Grisemer. He was 64 years of age at the time of Sarah's death. Levi had been ill for more than a year and had been unable to work, and Sarah contributed to his support. After Sarah died, Levi's health recovered enough for him to return to work.

William Sterling Hodges, on 30 April 1915, the day before sailing on the Lusitania, made a will naming Sarah sole legatee and executrix. He provided among other things that should his wife and two children "all die simultaneously or on or about the same time" then in such event his entire estate was to go to his mother.
