Linus G. Hubbard
A telegram was received here Tuesday evening announcing the death of Linus G. Hubbard at Urbana, Ill., after an illness of several months.
Mr. Hubbard was born on the Hubbard farm in Wilmington, Jan. 24, 1844. He was the oldest son of the late George C. and Salome D. Hubbard. One sister, Elizabeth (Mrs. Orson Copeland) and two brothers, Porter G. and Chester C., died several years ago. One brother, Fred B. Hubbard of Chenoa, Ill., and one sister, Mrs. H.F. Barber of this town, survive.
Mr. Hubbard went to Illinois in 1867 and was married to Helen Stannard in 1870. They had six children, George D. of Oberlin, Ohio; Charles L. of Los Angeles, Cal.; Fred C. , Nellie, wife of M.E. Robbins, Minnie S., who live in Urbana, Ill.; and Clara M., wife of William L. Bennett, deceased.
He was a soldier in the Civil War, an active member of the Baptist church, a prosperous farmer and a highly respected man.
In spite of the fact they he had adopted the west as his home his love for his native town never waned and his frequent visits here were a source of great pleasure to him.
The last few years he and his daughter, Minnie, had lived in Foley, Ala., where he built a home, but on account of illness, was obliged to return to his former home in Urbana, Ill., last fall.
