bullet  Marriage Notes:


"He married Jerusha Leeds of Boston. It may interest some to know of the romance of this marriage. Asa Hodgkins was a rising young man--first mate of a big ship of Boston. I have heard the old folks say that Asa was the handsomest man they ever saw.
"Once upon a time, when his ship was in Boston, he met Jerusha Leeds of a wealthy family. She was smitten by his beauty and accomplishments and unimpeachable character. He felt pleased and highly honored to be noticed by a wealthy young lady of great accomplishments. Soon their mutual esteem grew into a deep affection which ripened into reciprocal love. When her parents learned of their mental attitude toward each other they forbade further associations; and assured her that if she should marry Asa Hodgkins--a man beneath her in wealth and social standing, they would disinherit her. But, as love is the strongest law in the universe, Jerusha Leeds married Asa Hodgkins, MY GRANDFATHER. They had three children; the youngest two died; and Jerusha Leeds Hodgkins, left a widow and cut off from her fortune and disowned by her family, brought her surviving son William E. Hodgkins, my father, down to Uncle Thomas Hodgkins who reared him kindly." [Eben B. Hodgkins in Hodgkins Genealogy]

The marriage was recorded by the Reverend Thomas Baldwin, Pastor of the Second Baptist Chruch, Boston, per NEHG Register, Volume 125, October 1971.
