James Newbold Dies Suddenly At Long Branch

He Had Been a Hotel Keeper at Port-au-Peck and Long Branch for Nearly Forty Years - The Sale of His Real Estate

James Newbold, proprietor of the Long Branch hotel, died suddenly at his home at eleven o'clock last Friday morning. Mr. Newbold complained during the morning of pains about his heart. A few minutes before his death he went upstairs and went to bed. Medical aid was summoned, but he died before the physician's arrival.

Mr. Newbold was the son of Rebecca and James Newbold and was born in Burlington county, April 11th, 1829. He came to Monmouth county when about twenty years old and for a long time he conducted the Port-au-Peck hotel, which he afterward sold to W. W. Conover, who bought the Newbold property for $60,000. Twenty-eight years ago he moved to John Van Woert's Long Branch hotel on Broadway, where he had lived ever since. He was married to Rebecca Van Woert, daughter of John Van Woert, in November, 1870. A widow and three daughters survive him. The children are Mrs. Lemuel Ketcham of Maple avenue, Red Bank; and Inez and Dorcas Newbold of Long Branch. The funeral was held from his late home at two o'clock on Monday afternoon.

Per the Death Notice Mr. Newbold was aged 68 years.
