obituary for Thomas Stewart Stevens (son of John L. and Phoebe (Chambers) Stevens):

Bordentown Register
Date: June 4, 1897
Page: 3
Column: 3



The death of Thomas Stewart Stevens, an old Bordentonian, occurred at Newark on Friday last. He was afflicted with lung disease. About three weeks prior to his death, he underwent an operation, from which he seemed to have recovered, and his condition was regarded as favorable. His end came suddenly but peacefully on the day stated. A widow and one child survive him. The funeral took place Monday, the body being brought to Bordentown for interment. Quite a large number of friends and shopmates accompanied the remains from Newark to their last resting place.
Deceased was born in the vicinity of Allentown, Monmouth County, sixty-six years ago. Early in the fifties, he came to Bordentown and was employed at the car shops of the Camden & Amboy Railroad Co. There he remained until the lease to the Penna, Co., excepting two years, when he acted as conductor of the first sleeping chairs introduced on railroads. The chairs were the patent of Messrs. R.S. Van Renesselaer, N.D. Thompson and Wm. H. Van Nortwick, and the cars were run between New York and Washington.
During the score or more years the deceased lived in this city, he was elected several times to common council, and was one of the most active and intelligent members of that body. He was equally efficient for a number of years as Secretary of the Delaware Fire Co. He was a member of Bordentown Lodge, No. 16 I.O.O.F, and also of Mt. Moriah Lodge, No. 28, F & A. M. At Newark he was a deacon of the South Baptist church. The Masonic ceremonies were observed at the funeral.
