Death of Sidney Stubbs.
Young Man Well Known in Cartersville Succumbs to Typhoid Fever.

The announcement of the death of Mr. Sidney Stubbs, a young Savannahan who has been interested in the ochre mining business near here and has been a frequent visitor to the city, comes as a sad blow to the many friends he had made.  Of fine physique, handsome face and genial manner, everybody with whom he came in contact became readily his friend.  His death took place in Atlanta.  The following is from the Georgian.

Sidney Goodwin Stubbs, of Savannah, died Monday morning at 6 o’clock at the home of his father-in-law, Captain E. S. Gay, 26 Currier street, after an attack of typhoid fever contracted in an epidemic at Savannah.  The funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 3 o’clock at St. Lukes Episcopal church.

Dr. C. B. Wilmer and Rev. Charles H. Strong, of Savannah, will conduct the services.  The interment will be at Oakland cemetery.

Mr. Stubbs was 25 years of age, and was the son of Captain and Mrs. Charles F. Stubbs, of Savannah.  Mrs. Stubbs afterwards married Judge George T. Cann.  Captain Stubbs was a prominent cotton factor of the coast city until his death in 1882.

Mr. Stubbs was a member of the winning Yale crew during his college career.  After leaving college he became president of the Blue Ridge Ochre Company, of Cartersville, and also engaged in the cotton business with Inman Sanders & Co., at Corinth, Miss.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Louise Gay Stubbs, and a little daughter.  At his bedside were his mother, his grandmother and a sister, Mrs. D. Stewart Craven, of Salem, N. J., besides members of Captain Gay’s family.

Than Sidney Goodwin Stubbs few young Georgians were better known, and he had won a large circle of friends by his kindly and generous disposition.
