iam Deavitt of Richmond, who moved on
to it in 1840, where he has since resided,
giving very little attention to the soap-stono
business. The demaml for soap-stoue,
however, has greally increascd withln
a few years, and, the Francestown
ipiarries having bccome nearly exbausted,

has sold that part of his farm containing

Greene The ChrUtian f.cmler, in its
issue of the 7th Instant, contained thc foi
iow ing reference to thc death of Mrs. Milton
Greene, a lady whose family is known to
many readers of the Watchman: "The
deatii of Mrs. Milton Greene of Stockbridge,
Vt., which occurred on Friday, .Tuly '.'3, was
as sad as it was unexpeoted to her family.
Only the Sunday before she attended chureh.
Her funeral was held in her home, the fol
lowlng Sunday, in the prcscnce of a large
number of relatives aud neigbbors. Her
marrled llfeextended over a period of forty
four years. Her hushaud, who survives
her, has thc comfort which comcs from the
memory of a companlonihlp which has made
life rich in its best experiences aud from the
faith which looks on to a happy future. She
had ten childreu, nine of whom grew to
manhood aml womanhood. Eight of them
are still living, and all were present at the
funeral, which was attended by Rev. S. A.
Parker, who had known her twcnty-tive
years. Seldom do wo see such a family
gatberlng six sons and two daughters all
stamped with the physical strength and
cnergy, thc moral and spiritual ipialities
which were so doininant in their lnother,
wbom tbey so deeply mourn. Two of her
sons arc well-knowu Univcrsalist clergy
men Kev. It. A. Grecnc of Lowell, Mass.,
and Kev. L, L. Greene of Waketicld, Mass.
Two of tbem are loading physicians of thc
places where tbey live Ii, M. Greene, M.D.,
of Bethel, Vt., and O. D. Greene, M.D., of
Warren, Vt. She was a kimi mother and
loved her childreu wisely, for she gave them
the best opportunity she eould for their
Intellectual cultiire, and imnressed her own
religious faith on them all. In sending
the notioe of their inarriagc to the paper,
February 24, 1848, the ofbclatlng clergyman
wrote thcse words: ' lustead of the bridal
loaf, I send you thc name of Brother Greene
as a suhscriber to the Watchman.' lu the
inarriagc notioe the editor said: ' We wish
that coniile a lona and hannv life.' When
Raymond and Mrs. j read in the light of these forty-four years,
this wish has heen fullilled. Mrs. Greeue
was sixty-seven years of age at her death.
