Alice with their daughter, Dera Stubbs
Henry was the third child and second
son of Joe and Fanny Stubbs of Birmingham, AL. Henry came to Texas
with the family and as his brother, he met and married a Texas gal.
Miss Alice Green and Mr. Henry Stubbs were married on 30 Jun 1905 in
Navarro Co. They had three children who are listed on the 1920
Navarro County US Census and this census it also tells that Henry
was a grocery clerk.
Henry and Alice are buried in the
“old part” of the Hamilton-Beeman Cemetery southwest of Corsicana
next to his stepmother, Mrs. M. M. Stubbs. Henry died 18 Jun 1960
and Alice died 1 May 1977, both in Navarro Co. TX. Henry has a
common grave marker with Alice plus an ornate bronze marker placed
as a foot marker. His son, Claude, made this bronze marker.
We wish we had more history on Henry
but the source of our stories pasted away before we could get to
them. We are however very grateful for the information we do have.
