    In Westerly, R. I., September 21, 1916, Mrs. Eliza C. Stillman, in the ninety-first year of her age.
    Eliza C. Stillman was the daughter of Phineas and Thankful Gardner Stillman and was born in Clarks Falls, Conn., in 1826. Early in life her parents moved to Potter Hill, R. I. This was her home until marriage to Charles A. Stillman, November 30, 1855 [1854], from which time she resided in Westerly.
    While living at Potter Hill she was converted and, on baptism, united with the First Hopkinton Seventh Day Baptist Church, from which she took a letter to the Pawcatuck Church of Westerly. She was a quiet, industrious, faithful Christian woman, interested in the life of the community and of the church. She had been for many years a worker in the Woman's Aid Society until age prevented her activity.
    She was the mother of two children: Mrs. James C. Hemphill, with whom she was tenderly cared for, and Herman E., also of Westerly. Besides these there were two step-children whom she had helped to rear, both now deceased, one recently, - George Edward, of Plainfield, N. J.; also one granddaughter, Mrs. Martin Austin, who died twelve years ago.
    Funeral services were held at the home of her daughter on Courtland street, September 23, and burial was in River Bend Cemetery. C. A. B.
