    Mrs. Lucinda Scriven Williams was born in Petersburg, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., May 4, 1815, and died in North Loup, Valley Co., Neb., Jan. 1, 1888, in the 73d year of her age. Sister Williams became a Christian at the age of nine years, and her life has been characterized by faithfulness in Christian service.
    In 1824 she removed with her parents to Verona, Oneida Co., N. Y., and there she was baptized and united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church. March 12, 1836, she was married to the late Dea. Daniel P. Williams with whom she lived in Christian companionship till Nov. 1875, when death claimed him; since then she has lived with her children, four of whom preceded her to the spirit land. One lives in New York, the other three were present at the funeral to pay the last sad tribute to the departed mother.
    My acquaintance with her began in June, 1862. Dea Williams (her husband) and herself were then among the chief supporters of the Seventh-day Baptist Church of Watson, Lewis Co., N. Y., and in July of that year, I attempted to preach my first sermon in their kitchen. I then found sister Williams to be one of the most conscientious Christians, and she continued to be so till she died. No person I ever knew manifested so great anxiety and fear of doing wrong as she. She was a woman of strong faith, having a strong desire to be submissive to the will of the Lord in all things, and one whose life has been above reproach. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."
