    Mary A. (Scrivens) Greene was born at Petersburg, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., August 27, 1832. and died at her home in Adams Center, N. Y., August 20, 1909. She was the daughter of Daniel S. and Katherine Scrivens. When but thre years of age she moved, with her parents, to the township of Adams, N. Y., and has had her home in that township all these years. She was converted in the old Greene Settlement schoolhouse and united with the Adams Center Seventh-day Baptist Church, June 20. 1850. G. M. Langworthy was then pastor. Through all her life she has been a great lover of the church and of the religion of the blessed Christ. In her latter years, and especially in the last months, has her Christian spirit been manifest in the abiding faith, the calm resignation to the inevitable, as month after month she lay in such severe bodily suffering as none but those who have suffered like her can fully realize. Her spirit was calm, and often the peaceful look upon her face was more than a sermon to those who looked upon her and held converse with her. Not only was she uncomplaining, but in her months of helpless confinement she found time to think of others, and it was a pleasure to her to plan for their comfort. It was a great joy to her to have friends come in and talk with her about life, the church and the work of the church, as also lo have them read to her books of value; above all, it was a joy to her to have the privilege of joining in seasons of prayer. In prayer her soul would seem to float away into the very presence of the loving Father with whom she w^as talking. She was married January 2;, 1851, to Leander R. Greene. It was his privilege to sit with her alone, holding her hand, after she had ceased to live upon earth, except in the memory of those who knew her and loved her. Mrs. Greene was preceded to the better world by an only daughter, August 8, 1887. She leaves behind a lonely husband and a vast host of loving friends, who feel lint they have been called to suffer a great loss. The church has lost a true supporter and the community a worthy member of society. The end came during the absence of the pastor, and the burial services were conducted from the late home, August 22, by Rev. Mr. Timeson, the Baptist pastor. E. A. w.
