    Mrs. Lovina Sweet Green, the daughter of Levi and Tacy Coats Sweet, was born in the town of Alfred, December 26, 1830, and died at Nile, N. Y., February 1, 1912.
    In early life she was baptized by Elder Jared Kenyon and united with the Second Alfred Church, Alfred Station, N. Y. In 1852 she was married by the same minister to David C. Green. To them were born six children. Two died in infancy and a girl died at the age of thirteen years. The other children are: Mrs. Ida Burdick, Lone Wolf, Okla., Mrs. Hattie Wheeler, Buffalo, N. Y., and Clarke W. Green, Nile, N. Y.
    She spent most of her life in the town of Alfred, but in 1994, after living ten years in West Genesee and about eight years in Richburg, she moved to Nile, N. Y., where, with the exception of eleven and one-half years, she made her home until death.
    On January 7, 1899, she joined the Friendship Seventh-day Baptist Church, Nile, N. Y., of which she has been a most faithful and consistent member. She possessed a very kind and hospitable nature as many, who have been in her home, can testify; and the subject of her funeral sermon, "She hath done what she could," was a true expression of her whole life.
    Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. Herbert L. Cottrell, at the home of her son, Clarke W. Green, Nile, N. Y., February 4, 1912. Interment was made in the cemetery at West Genesee, N. Y. H. L. C.
