Watertown Gazette, 05 16 1912
John Staub, Prominent Banker of Thompson Died Suddenly.
Taken sick Saturday afternoon and gradually growing worse, John Staub, than whom there was hardly a better known business man in the southern part of the country and in this section, died at about 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon, the direct cause of his death being uraemiae . . .
John Staub was one of the earliest settlers in Thompson, having come to that place from Watertown, Wis., in the late seventies. His business life has, according to those who knew him well, been one of square dealing, in which he prospered, being possessed of considerable property in the vicinity of Thompson, in the western part of the state and on the Pacific coast he was president of the Bank of Thompson.
The deceased who was born in Watertown, Wis., February 17, 1854 . . .
The above is taken from The Evening Times of Grand Forks, North Dakota, of April 29, 1912. It will be read here with sincere sorrow by Mr. Staub's many old Watertown friends. He was one of the very best of men, and The Gazette joins his many old friends and neighbors here in extending sympathy to the afflicted family.
