James Hubbard Dead
He Had Always Lived in Middletown Township
He Was a Farmer and His Entire Life Had Been Spent in That Occupation
James Hubbard, who lived across the Shrewsbury river in Middletown township, died last night of pneumonia, aged 79 years. He had been sick but a short time.
Mr. Hubbard was born on the Hubbard homestead farm in Middletown township. His father, Samuel Hubbard, owned a large tract of land there. The tract was subsequently divided among Samuel Hubbard's children, Miss Kate Hubbard and James, John Anthony and Henry Hubbard. Miss Kate Hubbard and Henry Hubbard live on the homestead place. James and John Anthony Hubbard built on their land and engaged in farming. Miss Kate Hubbard is the only surviving member of the family. The John Anthony Hubbard farm was recently sold to Alvin Sanborn. James Hubbard had not given personal management to his farm of late years but had lived in a house along the river bank.
Mr. Hubbard married Jane Bannan. She survives him and he also leaves three children. The children are Mrs. Annie Sneden, widow of Reviere Sneden of Red Bank; Mrs. Albert Murfitt of Brooklyn; and Mrs. Frank Tompkins of New York. Another daughter, Charlotte, died at the age of thirteen.
The funeral will be held on Friday at two o'clock at the house.
