To the west several rows is the Hodge family plot.

Andrew Hodge was a successful businessman from Chicago, Illinois and was a member of the Chicago Fairoaks Association which represented the interests of the Fair Oaks Colony with the Chicago developers. He and his brother Alexander invested in Fair Oaks land to the east of the village on Capitola Ave. Mr. Hodge had been the head of the Chicago Paper Company and self-titled himself as a “capitalist”. He came to Fair Oaks from Chicago with his family in 1901 and built a mansion on the bluffs near Capitola Ave. His family lies in additional plots to the north.
