1869 - Not an Ordinary Church Service
During the morning service at the Unitarian Church, in Leominster, Mass., on a recent Sunday, a lady went into a fit. Two other ladies immediately fainted, and before these were all disposed of, a message came to Mrs. Wm. H. Locke, that her father, Mr. Stevenson, who lived in Lancaster, had suddenly died while in the act of shaving. The news caused her to scream aloud, but during all the disturbance the minister kept on with his sermon "all the same."
