A sad reminder of early Michigan days was the death this week of Oscar A. Stevens, of Georgetown. Mr. Stevens was a native of Pontiac, but had lived in Georgetown for half a century. He was the son [should be son-in-law] of Hestor L. Stevens, a celebrated man in Michigan politics, who formerly sat in Congress from a district comprising far more than half the state. After Mr. Stevens retired from the house he settled in Georgetown and died there 40 years ago. The son, Oscar A. Stevens, who was buried this week, came here from Michigan in 1851. He was for many years Superintendent and General Manager of the Washington & Alexandria Railroad. His wife, one son, Mr. Charles Stevens of Chicago and three daughters, Mrs. C.H. Fitch, Mrs. Van H. Manning and Miss Charlotte S. Stevens survive him.
