Obituary of Nicholas Tubb, Monroe County, Mississippi.

Nicholas Tubb was born in Monroe County, Miss., on February 17, 1841, and died at his home, near Quincy, within a few miles of the place of his birth, on April 11, 1916. He was among the first to enlist in his county, joining, with eleven kinsmen of the same name, Company E, 14th Mississippi Regiment. He served throughout the war, taking part in the hardest-fought battles of Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi without receiving any serious wounds. It was notable of this family of soldiers not to evade or shirk a duty or abandon a friend, As an illustration his brother, Dr. John Tubb, on returning from a furlough, found the great battle of Shiloh raging, Not knowing the location of his company, he attached himself to another and fought througout the battle.

Of pure and noble manhood, Nicholas Tubb lived a thoroughly Christian life. He loved his fellow men and was loved and respected by them. As a reward for his service to his country and in appreciation of his honesty and integrity his county elected him to the office of treasurer, which he held for the four years just prior to his death. He is survived by several sons and daughters.
