Shaker Life

From The Owl, published by the Wing Family Association:
In the early twenties, [Stephen and Lucy Dutton] received from Nathaniel Thomas their faith as Shakers. In March, 1825, Stephen and Lucy disposed of their farm to their three sons, who remained outside the faith, and moved into the Square House and joined a Shaker family. In September 1831, the Square House was broken up when Stephen and Lucy moved into the Church Family at Sabbath Day Lake in Maine. Here Stephen became the head farmer upon the great Shaker Farm and Lucy took hold of the general work with the sisters. They assumed the relation of brother and sister and when they met there were always kind words for each other, “how do you do. Brother Stephen?" and "are you feeling well, Sister Lucy?" In summer of 1848, Stephen, who was a very large man, weighing over 300 pounds, came in from the fields and drank too much cold water in the heat of the day, from the effects of which he died, Oct. 25, 1845, aged 72 years [sic—he died 25 Oct 1848, aged 75]. Their parting and the story of their lives is told in The Owl at page 694. Lucy died Dec. 16, 1867, aged 84 years. Herself, husband, and six daughters [only five are known] remained Shakers to the last and all died in the faith.[1]

Lucy (Wing) Dutton died on 15 Dec 1867 at the Shaker community at Sabbath Day Lake near New Gloucester, Maine, and her death was recorded at New Gloucester where the record says that she was 84 years old and a Shaker.[3]
