Indiana, USA

This morning at 1 o'clock occurred the death of John Stevens, aged 80 years, at his home, 22 Green street. The disease which caused his death was jaundice super-induced by extreme old age. He had been sick a good while, and the hot weather had acted seriously against him. Mr. Stevens had lived in Lafayette nearly fifty years, and was married some forty years ago to Eliza Murdock, eldest sister of James and Thomas Murdock. Five children were born to them, four of whom, with the widow survive. Mr Stevens was a well known citizen a highly respectable man, and possessed a great many loyal friends. The funeral will occur Monday morning from St Anns church at 9 o'clock, interment in St Mary's cemetery. The funeral of the late John Stevens, whose death occurred Saturday morning, will be conducted from St Ann church this morning at 9 o'clock, interment in St Mary's cemetery. A widow and four children survive. Mr Stevens was 80 years old and lived a useful and honored live.
