(HEADLINE:) She lived alone near her son. When found her body was found lying on the bed with the clothing burned off.

Mrs. Mary Phelps met with a terrible death last evening, shortly before 6 o'clock, being burned to death at her home on the farm of her son, Jerome, on Atherton Street in Burton.
Mrs. Phelps lived alone in a little house about 4 rods east of the residence of the son named, and (her) grandson Arthur, living several rods east of her. Last evening, between 5 and 6 o'clock her son went to the house where his mother lived to fix the fire and found her seated before the stove. He did what was necessary to the stove and cautioned the old lady, who was about eighty-six, not to meddle with the fire. Shortly before 6 o?clock Arthur left his house to go to the barn to harness a horse to take two ladies who were visiting him to the electric railway station at Morrish?s crossing, and while passing the house smelled smoke. He groped his way to the chair in which his grandmother usually sat, and finding her not there ran to the bed, on which he found her lying. He was unable to carry her out and called for his father. Together they carried the bed out of the house and found Mrs. Phelps was dead. Her clothing had been burned off her body and the bed clothing had been burned. It is supposed that her clothing caught fire and she rushed to the bed and threw herself upon it in the hope that the fire would be extinguished by so doing, or that a spark set fire to her dress and she went to bed, and while lying down the spark burst into a blaze and she was burned to death. The two young ladies who were visiting the younger Phelps passed the house a few minutes before Arthur did and smelled nothing.
Mrs. Phelps was born in New York and came to Davison with her husband, R.G. Phelps about 50 years ago. They lived in Davison for about twenty years and then moved to Burton where Mr. Phelps died about twenty-five years ago. She is survived by six children. They are Jerome, of Burton; Leander, of Saginaw; Eugene, who lives in California; Mrs. Delos Cole, of St. Johns; Mrs. Adaline Thompson, who lives near Millington, and Alice of Gratiot county.
Dr. Charles was notified and went to Burton last night, but did not deem an inquest necessary.
The funeral will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m. from the home of her son, Jerome. Interment will be made in the Kitchen cemetery in Davison.

197 Maj. Gen. Noah Phelps (1) (born January 22, 1740, descended from the immigrant William Phelps) settled in Simsbury, Connecticut., where he was an active and influential man. He was a Yale graduate, a justice of the Peace, judge of Probate for twenty years, and was a Delegate to the Convention of 1787 to ratify the Federal Constitution. Early in the breaking out of the Revolutionary War he was chosen as a member of "Committee of War for the expedition against Ticonderoga and Crown Point."
The committee considered the advisability of taking Fort Ticonderoga, then occupied by the British, and in which there was stored a large amount of heavy artillery and other war implements. Capt. Phelps, Barnard Romance, Ephraim Buell, and Capt. Edward Mott, with others, composed this committee, Capt. Mott acting as chairman. £300 was raised from the Public Treasury though guaranteed by several patriotic gentlemen. This fund was placed in the hands of Capt. Phelps and Barnard Romance, with the request that they should go north and press forward this project. This resulted in the great and bloodless victory - the taking of Fort Ticonderoga.
It may be interesting to his descendants to know the part Capt. Phelps acted as a spy. At the southern part of Lake Champlain, Capt. Phelps was sent out to reconnoiter. He stopped over night at a farm house some little distance from Fort Ticonderoga. Some British soldiers occupied rooms adjoining Capt. Phelps, where they were having a dinner party. Capt. Phelps heard them discuss the condition of the fort, and the position taken by the rebels, as they styled the people. Early the next morning Capt. Phelps visited the fort disguised as a peddler.
"Pretending that his object was to get shaved, he avoided suspicion, and had an opportunity to ascertain the construction, strength, and force of the garrison. And he had the good fortune to elude detection, though as it afterwards appeared, his presence had began [sic] to excite mistrust before he left the garrison."
While returning through the fort, the commander accompanied him talking with him about the rebels, their object and movements. Capt. Phelps seeing a portion of the wall in a dilapidated condition, remarked that it would afford a feeble defence against the rebels, if they should attack in that quarter. The commander replied, " Yes, but that is not our greatest misfortune. All our powder is damaged, and before we can use it, we are obliged to dry and sift it."
The Phelps Homestead Erected by Captain Elisha Phelps in 1776, who with his brother, General Noah Phelps, and others, was actively engaged in the capture of Ft. Ticonderoga. After the death of Captain Phelps, this old homestead was purchased by his nephew, Colonel Noah Amherst Phelps. (1) It was operated by three sucessive generations of Phelps tavernkeepers as a tavern and inn from 1786 to 1849. The Simsbury Historical Society <../geo/simsbury.htm> now owns and operates the Phelps Tavern Museum and Homestead located on two-plus acres in the center of Simsbury, Connecticut.
Capt. Phelps soon after left the fort, employing a boatman to take him down the lake in a small boat. He entered the boat in full view and under the guns of the fort. He requested the boatman to exert himself and terminate the journey as soon as possible, The boatman then requested him to take an oar and assist, This the Capt. declined to do, being in full sight of the fort, by saying he was no boatman. After rounding a point that intercepted a view from the fort, the Capt. proposed taking an oar, which he did, and being a strong active man as well as a good oarsman, he excited the suspicion of the oarsman by his efficient work, who remarked with an oath, 'You have seen an oar before now, sir.' This excited the suspicion of the boatman at the time that he was not a good and loyal citizen, but fear of superior strength prevented an attempt to carry him back to the fort. This he confessed to Capt. Phelps after the surrender of the fort. Capt. Phelps returned safely to his command, reported the information he had gained [to General Ethan Allen], resulting in the great and glorious victory before referred to." (2)
About this time Mr. Phelps raised a company mostly at his own expense, and was appointed Captain. He served under Col. Ward, was at Fort Lee, joined Washington's army, and was at the battles of Trenton and Princeton. Later he acted as commissary, and after the war was chosen Maj. Gen. of Militia.
Noah Phelps was clearly a leader within the Simsbury community. He chaired the town meeting that passed the articles of confederation in January 1778, and in November of 1787, the meeting picked him and Daniel Humphrey Esq., as delegates for the Convention of the State of Connecticut, set to convene in Hartford in January and vote on whether or not to adopt the federal constitution. They were directed to oppose it, but "one of the delegates though voting as instructed by the town, took occasion to state that his personal convictions led him to favor the proposed constitution."(3) This might or might not have been Phelps. He held a variety of important positions, including Surveyor of lands in 1772 and 1783, Justice of the Peace for Hartford County in 1782, Judge of Probate in 1787, and Major-General of the Militia, 1796-1799.
He died in Simsbury 4 Nov., 1809, honored and respected. On his tombstone is inscribed: "A Patriot of 1776. To such we are indebted for our Independence."
