In August 1892, a special telegram was sent to Richmond’s Daily Dispatch announcing the death of J. Richard Edmonds Hubbard. It read:

Young Mr. Hubbard Passes Away.

Farmville, Va., August 19. — J. Richard Edmonds Hubbard died today at 12:05 o’clock P. M. at his home, [Chellowe], Buckingham county, in the 18th year of his age. He was the promising son of Col. Robert T Hubbard. He had been ill but a short time from typrhoid-fever and died professing earnest faith in Christ.
