He died at the age of eighty years. Joseph Tubbs, son of Captain Tubbs, in company with Thomas Baker owned the Eagle Mills at Peterboro, N.H., where he manufactured cotton goods, ginghams, etc., from the rough cotton. Successful at first, the firm met with disasters from various causes; and the business was wound up after several years of existence. Joseph Tubbs then turned his May 22, 1859, at the age of seventy years and three months. His wife was a daughter of Dr. Joseph Monroe, of Hillsborough. She died at Hancock, N.H., January 16, 1871, at the age of seventy-five years and eight months. They were both Unitarians. They had six children, of whom three are deceased, namely: Thomas B., who died in 1894, seventy-nine years old; Elijah M. Tubbs, who died in 1881, fifty-eight years old; and Mrs. Sarah W.

Frederick Tubbs was a farmer and died when the subject of this sketch was a child, with whom his widow now makes her home. Berry R. Tubbs grew to manhood near Mountain View, where he was initiated into the mysteries of the common branches and acquired a good education. When sixteen or seventeen years of age he commenced farming on the White River and after residing on different places up to 1872 he then decided to turn his talents in the direction of medicine, and with this purpose in view he began fitting himself for this calling under the directions of Drs. Foster and Hughes. At the end of two years he commenced practicing ten miles below Mountain View on the river, but about twelve years ago he removed to Long Creek and shortly after to Timbo. Five years since he commenced selling goods, with James Rise as partner, but in recent years he has conducted this business on his own responsibility and at the same time has kept up his medical practice, at which he has done remarkably well and has built up an extended practice. His mercantile establishment is well stocked with a...
