~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mary Hamilton was born near Terre Haute, Ind. Feb. 11, 1838. She was married to Buel Stevens, Sept. 27, 1857. To this union were born four sons and five daughters- one son and one daughter having preceded her to the realm beyond.

She enlisted in the service of Jesus in August, 1857.

Since the war of 1861 she, with the family, lived on a farm northeast of Memphis, until about twenty years ago, at which time they moved to town where she continued to live until her demise.

She was the last one of her father's family to depart. She crossed the boundary at 6:45 a.m., Feb. 18, at the age of 83 years and seven days. Her departure was glad and peaceful.

She is not extinct, but removed. A mother, a wife and a strong character is gone, for a while, impoverishing earth but enriching Heaven.

She still lives with us to dominate and to bless.
