A Sudden Death
Mrs. Caroline Pemberton Dies in Front of Her Home
Mrs. Caroline Pemberton of Long Branch died suddenly in front of her home on Friday a week ago. She had been to a euchre party at Mrs. Bernard Mahon's. While returning home in her carriage she complained of a pain in her side. She drove to a drug store and after procuring a strychnine tablet resumed her journey home. She was met at the carriage by her brother, Dr. Harry H. Pemberton who lived with her. As she alighted on the sidewalk she reeled suddenly, fell in her brother's arm and expired. Death was due to heart disease. She was 66 years old.
Mrs. Pemberton was the daughter of Caroline and John Pemberton and was born at Brighton, England. Her parents came to this country when she was a child and located at Branchport. For a good many years Mrs. Pemberton had lived at Long Branch and in the summer season she conducted a hotel at Asbury Park. Mrs. Pemberton was married when she was a young woman but she separated from her husband and resumed her maiden name. Her only child, a son, committed suicide a number of years ago. She left an estate estimated to be worth $70,000. The most of this she left to her brother, Dr. Harry H. Pemberton. Another brother, John Pemberton, died suddenly a few years ago while cashing a check at the Long Branch banking company's office.
