Death of Colonel Suit. Dropsy of the Heart Carries Away a Well-Known Resident. Col S. Taylor Suit, ... died this morning at his residence, 238 New Jersey ave, n.w. of dropsy of the heart. He had been sick since last May, and for the past two weeks has grown steadily worse, ... His family, consisting of wife, three children & nephew were around his bedside at his demise.
Col Suit was born in Prince George County MD in 1832 & at an early age went to Keokuk, IA. There there he went to Louisville and thence to New York, where he was a prominent figure on Wall street before & during the war. At the close of hostilities he opened the First National Bank of VA at Richmond, and was its president. It was in 1865 that he came to Washington.
Here he invested largely in suburban property, owning “Suitland” and other large suburban tracts. During the later years of his life he was engaged in railroad enterprises and was president of a syndicate proposing to build a road from Washington to Chesapeake Bay. He was one of the judges at the Philadelphia Centennial and took a prominent part in that event. Col Suit was widely known in Washington & vicinity and leaves many warm frieds (sic) who will be surprised and shocked at his death.
