Resident Of “Kalorama”, Sykesville, Passes Away In Baltimore

William B. Hargraves, 63 years of age, passed away on Sunday morning at the home of his sister, in Baltimore, after a week’s illness of pneumonia. Born in Petersburg, Va., he was the son of the late Epps and Lulu T. Hargraves, and is survived by one sister, Miss Lula Hargraves, of Baltimore, and two brothers, Epps, Jr., and Edward H., of Sykesville.

For 16 years Mr. Hargraves was a travelling representative with the E. C. Bibb Stove Company of Baltimore, severing his connection with that firm to engage in the cake and cracker business with his brothers, forming the Hargraves Biscuit Company of Baltimore.

In 1907 the brothers closed out this partnership and engaged in the wrecking business, being known as the Maryland Building and Wrecking Company. Upon the death of Joseph W. Hargraves in 1911, the company was dissolved and the brothers retired. For the past two or three years the deceased has made his home at “Kalorama,” Sykesville. He was s member of the Odd Fellows’ and Masonic orders. Funeral services were held at Petersburg, Va., on Tuesday.
