Norfolk - Nancy Kathryn Agee Hodges died on February 15, 2015, at Harbor's Edge in Norfolk, Virginia.
Born in Portsmouth, Virginia on January 23, 1926, she was the daughter of Nelle Counts and James L. Agee. She graduated from Cradock High School and attended the College of William and Mary. Among Nancy's survivors are her husband of sixty-five years, H. Leon Hodges; her daughter and son-in-law, Kathy and Kemp E. Savage, III; her son and daughter-in-law, John L. and Nancy Hodges; sister-in-law, Joan Agee, and brother, Joseph S. Agee, Sr.
During her lifetime, doing unto others brought Nancy immeasurable pleasure and satisfaction. She faithfully participated in the ministries of Oak Grove and Great Bridge United Methodist Churches and volunteered in various community organizations. The ministry Nancy most cherished was her vocal participation as an alto in the Chancel and Sonshine Choirs. Among the other talents she unassumingly shared were her culinary expertise, love of entertaining in a warm and gracious manner, and arranging homegrown roses for friends and family
A service to celebrate Nancy's life will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 20, 2015, at Great Bridge United Methodist Church officiated by Rev. Robert Garner and Rev. Tim Craig.

I don't know much more about Euclid - I agree with your assessment that he's likely the same Euclid that died in the steam explosion, but I'm having trouble explaining how part of the VA 9th cavalry ended up manning a steam ship down in Florida when the rest of the 9th was fighting in northern VA.
As for Catherine, I don't know much. The 1850 census was interesting to me
It shows the wife of Churchill A(nderson) as "Catherine" and his children are listed as "Catherine A, Rosemond, and Euclid". So apprently Rosa/Rose's full name is Rosemond, but she probably hated being called that.
Let's see, what else... Churchill was a hotel owner in Richmond in the 1840s and 1850s. There's another possible son of Churchill's I'm researching at the moment named Alpheus. All the dates and places line up, but there's no smoking gun yet. Alpheus is interesting, He graduated from medical school in Richmond in 1844, sailed to CA in the gold rush, became the first mayor of Los Angeles in 1850, came back, and died in Alexandria, VA "at his father's house" in 1858.
Oh, and another odd one, I found a random record of Alma Lois that lists her as Alma Lousia. If that's her actual name, that a funny one, because my mother is named Lois after her.
I'm trying to find more on William Morgan who married Mary S. Wedderburn. I can't get past him in that lineage, and my whole family wants to know more up that line. The Wedderburns seem to go on forever, but the Morgan's stop.
Also, if he's C.A.'s son, his siblings were born in 1832, 1835, and 1839. His mother would have been born abt. 1805, so she would have been 19 at the time. It all seems to line up.
Also, in the 1860 census, CA Hodges had moved from Richmond to Washington DC. While not exactly the same place as Alexandria, they're only a few miles apart, and since the 1860 census lists him as a laborer, and no longer a hotelier, it's possible he moved around some in the area. That 1860 census is the last record I've found of him so far.
Also, here's a fun article on Alpheus from 1993.
