Former City Clerk Called
Arthur J. Chubb, for many years a resident of Cumberland, died very suddenly
at Sand Point, Idaho, on Sept. 25, from a heart attack. He was laid to rest
at Sand Point beside his wife, who preceded him in death about two years ago.
Mr. Chubb, son of Harrison Colby and Maria E. Scott Chubb, was born in
Vermont on Sept. 10, 1861. His great-grandfather was a soldier in the
Revolutionary war. His parents came to Chippewa county in 1863 and settled
in the country about Codott and Boyd. His father built a sawmill and later a
flouring mill, and in about 1889 started a milling business at Boyd. The
deceased was educated as a woodsman and lumber cruiser at which he became
very proficient. Like his father, Mr. Chubb was a democrat and took much
interest in politics. He served as treasurer of Chippewa county and as a
delegate to the democratic national convention at Chicago in 1896, where W. J.
Bryan made his celebrated crown of thorns and cross of gold speech. He came
to Cumberland in 1899 to take charge of the stave business of Smith &
Johnson. He was then a widower with one daughter, Clara, now Mrs. Frank
Evans of Sand Point. About three years later he married Mrs. Josephine
Hollister Bonett. To this union three daughters and six sons were born,
Catherine, now Mrs. Harry Young, and Margaret of Spooner, Lottie, now Mrs.
Alex Stockman of Kootenai, Idaho, William, Arthur, Edson and George of Sand
Point, and Myron and Richard who make their home here. He is also survived
by a step son, Clarence E. Chubb, of River Falls, and a sister, Miss Minnie
Chubb, of Sand Point. Mr. Chubb was active in the [illegible]
business here for several years and also served as city clerk of Cumberland
for a number of years. In 1924 the family moved to Sand Point, where Mr.
Chubb has since been employed as timber estimator and lumber grader. The
past season he has been chief lumber grader for the Brown Lumber Co. at
Naples, Idaho. Wherever Mr. Chubb lived he made a host of friends who are
saddened at the news that he is no more.
