The Funeral of Frederick Douglass, Jr.
The funeral of Frederick Douglass, Jr., took place at 3 o'clock today from his late home at Hillsdale. In conformity with the wishes of his father the ceremonies were brief and simple. The handsome casket was placed in the parlor, and a throng of friends gathered around. Rev. Dr. Francis Jesse Peck, Jr., conducted the services. "The Rock of Ages" was sung by four specially chosen members of Campbell A.M.E. choir. Rev. Dr. Peck delivered an address reviewing in appropriate terms the life of the deceased. Remarks were also made by several visiting dignitaries of the church. The remains were interred at Graceland cemetery beside the grave of his wife.

Frederick Douglas, Jr., was born at New Bedford, Mass., on March 3, 1841. He was the third child of Frederick Douglass, Sr., the first being Rosetta, the second Louis H. and the fourth Charles R. While quite young he removed with his parents to Rochester and entered a mixed school in that city.

After his schooling he learned the trade of a printer in his father's Rochester office. Immediately after the outbreak of the war he was commissioned a recruiting sergeant and during the conflict was engaged in mustering colored troops in Mississippi. His elder brother Louis and younger brother Charles were active soldiers in the fifty-fourth Massachusetts infantry.

About 1865 he removed to Denver, Col., and remained there two or three years. From the west he came to Washington and opened a small grocery store that stood for years in the grounds now occupied by the house in which he died.

When Frederick Douglass, Sr., became United States Marshal in 1877, Frederick, Jr., was made a bailiff and secured a clerkship in the office of the recorder of deeds during the incumbency of Mr. Douglass, Sr. He contributed much political literature to the press.

He was married to Miss Virginia Hewlett of Boston, sister to the Washington attorney, E. M. Hewlett, and daughter of the professor of gymnastics at Harvard University. His wife died about three years ago and Mr. Douglass never recovered from the affliction.

In September last he was removed to Freedmen's Hospital for treatment, was operated upon and returned home about six weeks ago. The direct cause of his death was consumption.
