Mrs. Bibb Dead.
Bartow County Lady Dies Last Week In New York City.

Mrs. Josephine Martin Bibb died in New York Sunday morning.  Some three years ago she went to New York to receive treatment in a sanitarium, and her troubles being obstinate and recovery little to be hoped for, death has been an expected event for some time.

She was the daughter of the late Mrs. Fannie Lucas, of this county, and was related to Judge Fallingant, of Savannah.

Mrs. Bibb’s later life has been a peculiarly sad one.  As a young woman she was considered extraordinarily beautiful, and was well preserved until she was more than fifty years of age, many remarking that she looked as young then as many women at thirty.  She married Capt. P. B. Bibb, of the navy, when a young woman.  Her husband, who had gone to be with her in New York after her mother’s death and her becoming ill, which necessitated her going to that city for treatment, died there a number of months ago from an overdose of morphine.

Mrs. Bibb was, besides being beautiful, a woman of rare intellectual poise and true refinement.  She possessed many friends, who sorrow at her death.

Her body was taken to Augusta and interred in Summerville cemetery, near that city.
