More Babb Records



Adairville, Ky -August 1886- Hopkinsville New Era

This morning about sunrise Mr. Gilbert Babb, a prosperous, well to do and highly respected young farmer, living about three and a half miles southeast of
here, just over the Robertson County line, was shocked by finding the body of his young wife hanging stiff and stark in the cistern house adjoining his
family residence. She had committed suicide by hanging herself with a piece of the cistern rope. No cause can be assigned for the rash act other than
insanity, a taint of which runs in her family. Her father, William Berry, of Elm Springs, Robertson County, shot and killed himself, her mother, a short while
after the father's death, hanged herself, and a young unmarried sisters has been sent to the asylum near Nashville. Mrs. Babb was a highly educated and
refined lady, and for several weeks previous to the suicide she was busily engaged in writing, though refusing to let even her husband see the manuscript.
She leaves her bereaved husband with a beautiful daughter two years old.
