Lucinda Furman, wife of Charles P. Stevens, died at her home on Church street, Otego [Otsego Co., NY], on Saturday morning about 10:30 o'clock, of an affection of the heart.  She had been in poor health for some time and was taken suddenly worse early Tuesday morning, when her physician was summoned.  A consultation of doctors was had later but medical skill and tender nursing could not avail, and she passed peacefully away.  She was born in the town of Morris, N.Y., April 11th, 1852, and was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Furman.  In her girlhood days she moved to Harpursville [Broome Co., NY] and was married to Charles P. Stevens Sept. 8th, 1869.  About three years ago they moved to Otego.  For many years Mrs. Stevens had been a constant and devout member of the Baptist church, and the church and community have sustained a great loss in the death of this estimable woman.  She is survived by her husband who, for a number of years, has been a great sufferer and is much of the time confined to his bed; one daughter, Mrs. Tilley Blakely, of Otego, and one son, Charles Guy Stevens of Passaic, N.J., and two granddaughters, Misses Ruth and Miriam Blakely, who have the sympathy of their many friends in the loss they have sustained.  The funeral was held at the home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Revs. W.H. Alger and W.H. Thompson officiating.  The interment was made in Evergreen cemetery at that place.  [MHD notation:  March 1912]
