From our Church history, St. John's Episcopal Church. page 40.
Charles J. Young married Mary J. Houston, granddaughter of the first settler in this area. On April 6 l897, Mary Houston Young signed away her dower rights to a portion of land she had received from her parents, John and Susan Stewart Houston. Then she and her husband signed the warranty deed transferring a lot in the Houston Addition to Eau Gallie, to the Protestant Episcopal Church of the Missionary Jusisdiction of Southern Florida, for the purpose of building a church already named, "St. John's". The documents were witnessed by Henry U. Hodgson, and Jno.E.M. Hodgson, Notary Public. The examination of title (search) was made on April 26, and the transaction recorded in Deed Book "B.B." on May l, l897. The Young family moved to Miami about l922, where Charles Young continued to work for the East Coast Lumber and Supply Company.
Our dentist, Dr. Eric Hodgson is from the above mentioned Hodgson family.
