Hubbell, Arthur (1874 - 1906)






----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 8/30/1906



The sickness of Arthur Hubbell which was mentioned last week resulted as it was feared it would, in his death, which came at 8:10 o'clock Friday morning, Aug. 24, 1906, after a week of much suffering. It hardly seems that it can be so to those of us who were used to seeking him on the streets every day as he was about the draying business, apparently one of the healthiest and most robust of men.

The funeral was held Sunday afternoon from the M.E. church where Revs. Presnall and Hendren each delivered addresses, after which the Black River Tent No. 169, K.O.T.M., of which deceased was a member and an officer, escorted the remains to the cemetery and there performed the last sad rites in his honor. The church was beautifully decorated with flowers and the casket was laden with the same , and with floral designs provided by the tent and by the Lady Maccabeus, who also accompanied the Sir Knights in the procession from and to the house.

Arthur Sherad Hubbell was born in Rodden township, Hastings county, Canada, Oct. 22, 1874 to Mr. and Mrs. Hezekiah Hubbell, he being the only son. With his parents and sister, Mrs. Roy Tuttle, he came to Clark county twenty-seven years ago. He has made his home here ever since, since being old enough working on the farm and in the woods until some three years ago when he went into the dray business. He was married Dec. 8, 1898 to Ethel Irene Peterson and to this union were born three children, only two of whom -- Lillan Joyce, aged four, and Arthur Ruport aged three -- are living. He was a quiet disposition, a good husband and father, a good citizen and a hard, faithful worker. About a year ago he had a run of typhoid fever which lift him in a weakened condition more so than his large, rugged frame would suggest. When the last sickness came on him he did not think much about it, more than it was possibly an attack of indigestion. He went to bed early Wednesday night and the next morning had the doctor call, but all that could be done seemed of no avail and death claimed its own. His untimely demise seems like a hard blow to the young wife and two small children, who have the heartiest of sympathy of the who community. Fortunately Mr. Hubbell carried a $1000 policy in the Maccabeus and also had an accident and sick benefit policy in the Anchor Casualty co.
