Birth: Apr. 26, 1853
Death: Feb. 20, 1908

Iowa City Citizen - February 21, 1908

Word reached the city about noon today that section men had found the body of Joseph Babbitt near the Iowa-Missouri line. Mr. Babbitt, who was a well known farmer, living in Scott township, had shipped a car of goods from here Tuesday night for Las Vegas, N. M. where he intended to live. Mr. Babbitt, and son, Elmer, went with the car. Details are lacking, but it is assumed that the unfortunate man must have fallen from the train and thus met his death.

Mr. Babbitt was a son in law of Zion Hill and lived on the latter's farm east of the city. He has, besides the son mentioned, a wife and two daughters. He was about forty-five years of age.
