Death of John Milton Ladd, Jr.

Yesterday afternoon, just as the shades of night were falling, John Milton Ladd, Jr., one of Mobile's best known business men, died at the family home, No. 358 Congress street, after an immediate illness of some weeks. He was born in Clarke County, Alabama, March 10, 1850. On December 16, 1875, he married Miss Eladie Hollinger, who with three sons, Messrs. Ernest F., G. Russell and John Milton, survive him. He also leaves one brother, Frank M. Ladd, and three sisters. He was identified for many years in many of Mobile's industries, being at the time of his death president of the Mobile Shingle and Manufacturing Company; Ladd Brothers, lumber and timber shippers and Lesesne & Ladd, cotton factors. The deceased was a very quiet, unassuming man, a Christian gentleman and a friend to all. His many friends will regret to learn of his death.
