Birth: unknown
Death: Sep., 1901

Mrs. Lucy Stevens fell and broke her neck Saturday afternoon at her home in this city. She had been putting up a stove and it is supposed she stepped from the stove to a chair and fell over backward, striking her head on the door facing. She was found with in an hour by some boys who went in the house for a drink of water. An inquest was held and the above facts determined.

The funeral service was held Sunday at 12:30 at the house by Rev. H. N. Gowan. The burial was at the Delhi cemetery. Mrs. Stevens was 74 years of
age and had been a resident of Crawford county almost all her life.

Her husband, who died in February, was 84 years old. He was a school teacher when a young man and taught a subscription school near Cuba in a
little log house. Uncle Johnnie Fleming, now dead, told him of a number of fine girls living near Delhi. Mr. Stevens investigated and as a result fell in love with the woman who became his companion for over half a century.

Mrs. Stevens was a kind wife, tenderly caring for her husband in the declining years of his life. She was a Christian lady, having the respect
of the community. The Telephone joins the citizens of the town in extending sympathy to the relatives.
