Note: Wellsboro Agitator of Thurs, Sep 30, 1890 has: ---Last week Sunday morning Mr. Philip Tubbs, one of the leading citizens of the Cowanesque valley, died at his home about a mile below Elkland, from the effects of an injury which he sustained by an accident on the previous Thursday while driving home from Westfield. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Tubbs were driving up Barney hill after it became quiet dark. The horse got out of the track and the buggy was overturned and its occupants thrown down the embankment about eight feet high. Mrs. Tubbs was not seriously hurt, but Mr. Tubbs complained of a severe pain in his chest, although no bones were broken, nor was he seriously bruised. The couple finished the journey home and Mr. Tubbs felt comparatively comfortable, and no serious results were apprehended. On Saturday he was again taken with the pain in his chest and suffered excruciatingly for several hours. He then sank into a comatose condition and passed away early on the following morning. Mr. Tubbs was born at Osceola nearly 66 years ago. He purchased the family homestead nearly 40 years ago and had resided there ever since. He leaves a widow and four children, two sons and two daughters, who, through his prudent management, are each provided with comfortable homes in the immediate vicinity of the old homestead. The funeral was largely attended last week Monday, and the remains were interred at Osceola. Mr. Tubbs was an honest man and a good citizen.
