As published in EASTERN FREEMAN newspaper

April 22, 1853
Deaths

In East Trenton, on the 10th inst., Capt. Steven
HIGGINS
, departed this life aged 58 years; his last
sickness, which was a lingering consumption, was very
long and severe, but he bore it with great patience
and resignation. He had long resided in Trenton, being
one of the first settlers of that town where, by
honest industry and strict integrity of character, he
had won many warm friends. The loss to that community
occasioned by his death cannot well be made good. He
was a worthy and respected citizen, a kind and
obliging neighbor, a loving and indulgent father, and
a devoted and affectionate husband. His loss we
deplore, and his memory will long be cherished by
those who knew him. (followed by poem)
