Col. Edward Savage Latimer Dies, 1901

From Fisherman and Farmer, Elizabeth City, Thursday, Sept. 5, 1901

Col. Edward Savage Latimer, a well-known and highly esteemed citizen of Wilmington, died last evening at 6 o’clock at his home, 208 North Third street, after a lingering illness of several months.

Only this week Col. Latimer returned from a sanitarium in Baltimore, where he was under treatment of some of the most skilled physicians in the country, but all in vain. He gradually grew worse after his arrival at home and his death came not wholly unexpected, but as a shock to his family and numerous friends here and elsewhere.
