DELAVERGNE, Mary Obituary, April 24, 1890

One of the startling and sad events of Sunday in this City was the sudden death of Miss Mary Delavergne. In the forenoon she left her home to attend the Wurts-street Presbyterian Church, of which she had been a member for many years. When opposite the Cornell residence she was observed to fall on the sidewalk. Four men went to her assistance and found her unconscious. They carried her to her residence on Pierpont-street, where a few minutes afterward she died. Her death is attributed to heart failure, superinduced by la grippe. Miss Delavergne was the only sister of Captain Isaac Delevergne and was a beloved and honored member of his family and had shared his pleasant home for many years. The deceased was held in high esteem by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. The funeral was held from the residence at 2:30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. The Rev. Dr. A. D. Bissell, of Poughkeepsie, officiated. [The Kingston Weekly Freeman and Journal, Kingston, NY, April 24, 1890]
