Mrs. D.C.

Castell, in Cambridge, this state. Mrs. Alcott went to Cambridge two months ago on a visit, and two weeks later was taken ill. She suffered greatly until death brought relief at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, August 23, 1902.
Mrs. Lucinda M. Upham was born in Georgetown, Madison County, New York, January 16, 1825. She married D.C. Alcott April 11, 1827. For some time she lived with her parents in Camden, New York. After eight years of married life in Oneida County, Mr. and Mrs. Alcott came, in 1854, to St. Charles, in which township they resided until Mr. Alcott’s death, July 11, 1897. Since that time Mrs. Alcott has resided a part of the time at St. Charles and a part with J.D. Alcott, a cousin, at Aurora.
The body was brought to St. Charles for burial. It arrived here Monday and funeral services were held at the home of Mrs. C. Shaw Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., Rev. N.K. Harkness of Marengo officiating. The remains were laid at rest beside her husband in the Garfield cemetery east of St. Charles.
