DEATH OF DR. SAMUEL A. H. M’KIM.
Was a Veteran Physician and Long Identified with District Affairs.

Dr. Samuel A. H. McKim, aged seventy-four years, a practitioner of medicine in the District of Columbia for forty-eight years, died suddenly of paralysis at his residence, at the northwest corner of Fifth and A streets southeast, about 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon. He had been confined to his home by ill health for the past two years. During recent months he had suffered five paralytic strokes.

Dr. McKim was one of the best known residents of Washington. He was born in Massachusetts April 17, 1826. His grandparents came to this city from England in 1804 [?]. His parents were married here in 1815, afterward moved to Massachusetts, returning in 1844. The father became paymaster at the Marine Barracks and placed the son in Columbian University, from which the latter was graduated in medicine in the spring of 1852. He entered upon a physician’s career immediately and was an exceedingly active man during the early years of the civil war. He was appointed surgeon to the local police department in 1860 [?], serving in that capacity thirty-two years. He was the first medical assistant to the local police force.

In February, 1861, he organized a company of militia for the defense of the city of Washington, and was assigned to guard the Benning Bridge. About that time he was also visiting physician to the Washington Asylum, and in April, 1861, he became acting assistant surgeon in the army, doing duty in the military hospitals in this city. In 1889 he was appointed surgeon of the Third Battallion of the District of Columbia National Guard, with rank of lieutenant, and in June, 1893, was attached to the First Regiment of the same organization, with the rank of Captain. He retired about two years ago.

Dr. McKim was twice married, first to Miss Caroline Gibbs, of Norwich, N. Y., and later to Miss Emma Simpson, of England, who survives him. By his first wife he had three children—Mrs. Hattie Hadderway, of Pennsylvania; Miss Mary E. McKim, of this city; and Henry Gibbs McKim. As a result of the second union there is one child living, Mrs. Emma Myers, of Virginia. All the children are living and are expected to assemble at the late home of the deceased this morning. The funeral will occur Monday, and interment will be made at Congressional Cemetery. Further arrangements have not been made. Two brothers, living in Massachusetts, who were notified of the death of Dr. McKim, will first have to be heard from.

The deceased was a member of Farragut Post, of the Grand Army of the Republic, a prominent Odd Fellow, and also a member of the Old Guard.
