BURLINGTON, N. J., Dec. 8. -- Mrs. Euphemia Grubb, aged mother of General E. Burd Grubb, died suddenly at her home, in this city, today. Her death was attributed to heart failure. She was past 80 years of age. She was the daughter of the late Issac B. Parker, of Carlisle, Pa., and had been a resident of this city since 1840, when her husband, Edward Burd Grubb, deceased, purchased the country seat of Horace Binney on Delaware Bank and removed here.
Her husband, while in Belgium on account of his commanding presence and soldierly bearing, was offered the position of Commander of the Guards by the King of the Belgians. He owned vast iron interests in Dauphin county, Pa., which are now being operated by the surviving heirs. He built the Manada and Codorus furnaces and successfully operated them and also those at Mount Hope and Mount Vernon, together with two forges. He was a member of the Union League, the Philadelphia Club and the Athenaeum, of Philadelphia. His death occurred in August 1867.
There were five children, four sons and a daughter. The eldest son, General Edward Burd Grubb, ex-Minister to Spain, and recently Republican candidate for Governor of New Jersey, resides near Edgewater Park, near here. Henry Bates Grubb and Charles Ross Grubb are residents of this city. A fourth son, Issac Parker Grubb, died in the front of Petersburg, Va., in August 1864, while adjutant of the Thirty-seventh Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers.
Mrs. Grubb was a member of the Episcopal Church and was always active in religious affairs, contributing large sums to the church and for charitable objects.
