Rankin County Obituaries

Bibb, Robert S.
Rankin Co., Miss., July 7, ae. 39. Mr. B. was a native of Alabama, a son of the late Gov. Bibb, of that state, and was connected with a large and influential circle of relatives and friends in Mississippi and Alabama. For the last six years Mr. B. had been a citizen of Rankin Co., and by his gentlemanly manners and generous disposition won many friends, who will long lament his early death. Receiving a liberal education, he engaged in the business of planting, and by his success afforded another instance proving that a practical success in the business of life is not incompatible with scholastic attainments, which, added to refined enjoyments, in no degree detracts from the usefulness of the citizen.
