884. Sarah Ann9 Fillebrown (Jonas8, Edward7, Edward6, Edward5, John4, Thomas3, Humpfrey2 Phillibrowne, Robert1 ffilebrowne)(8956) was born in Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts February 12, 1837.(8957) Sarah died after May 1886.(8958) She survived her husband.
Sarah married Albert Benjamin Kingsbury February 22, 1859.(8959) Albert was born February 28, 1830 in Grafton, Worcester County, Massachusetts.(8960) (Additional notes for Albert Benjamin Kingsbury(8961)) Albert died May 18, 1886 in Quincy, Adams County, Illinois, at 56 years of age.(8962) He "died suddenly at his home on East Hampshire street. The sad news spread rapidly and cast a gloom over the entire community. He had been in poor health for several months but was able to be about and yesterday he was feeling unusually well. He enjoyed a hearty dinner with his family and after dinner retired for a short nap. Going to his room soon after, Mrs'. Kingsbury found that he had been stricken with apoplexy. Everything that medical skill could suggest was done to relive him, but at 3:30 o'clock he breathed his last." The Quincy Daily Whig reported "Mr' Kingsbury's death removes from Quincy one of its most successful and most highly honored business men. His name was synonymous with the most scrupulous honesty and integrity, and in the mercantile world his word was literly as good as his bond. In thirty-five years of active business life he was never known to violate a contract or betray a trust. As characteristic of his business methods it may be stated that during the panic of 1857 business reverses seriously embarrassed the firm of Stone & Kingsbury and they were compelled to settle with their creditors for fifty cents on the dollar. A few years afterwards, however, during more prosperous times, they repaid every creditor in full with interest. Naturally of a modest, retiring disposition, Mr. Kingsbury studiously avoided personal preferment, but every body who knew him respected and admired him for his sterling integrity and genuine worth. Liberal to the needy always, his good deeds will live after him, and the example of his life will not soon be forgotten. In the business community as well as in the homes of his friends Mr. Kingsbury's place can never be filled."

Stone. Three years later he was admitted to partnership in the business, and in 1861 his brother, Lyman E. Kingsbury, purchased Mr. Stone's interest. Afterwards Messrs. S.A. Blasland and C.S. Wykoff were engaged in the wholesale boot and shoe business with Mr. Kingsbury. the firm being Kingsbury, Blasland & Co. In 1881 he retired from the jobbing trade and has since been engaged in the manufacturing business,"
