SETTLE POLICY AFTER !
PEBI0DJ[_32 YEARS
ON UFE. OF JOHN PETTE
BONE WHO DIED ON
JULY 27, 1883
POLICY FOR $5,000
Beneficiary In Case Is Now a Res
ident of Charleston-His
tory of Case.
The interesting story of thc settle
ment of a* most rcmarknble carse, that
of a small paid-up- policy on fae .
lifo of John Hellene nc, who died 32
yours ago. in told in the following
lette.- which Mr. M- M. Maltison. Gen
eral Age-.t of tho Mutual ileuefit Ute
Insurance company, ha3 addressed to
the agents of this company In South
Carolina:
"We hav?J nettled a most striking
case, that of a small paid-up policy
on tho life 'of John Pettebonc, who
died July 27th. 1SG3.
..Policy No.. -18201 waa issued in
1S07 for SD.Oprr; on thc non-forfeiting,
10-prcmlum Hie-plan, ?with au annual
premium of $2G?>..">0, o.i wrlch only one
premium was pai-i. und fifty per cent
of that was nettled by a premium
loan; so that In ISC;? the policy by ita
terms became a paid-up participating
policy for $500, one-tunth of its ori
ginal amount, subject of course to
tho premium loan indebtedness. Thin
policy waa Issued through thc Daltl
m.iro ofllce, and just hov,- the company
happened to learn of the insureds
death la explained In a lett'a: from
-General .Agent, C. T. Thurman, of
that city, from which I quote tho fol
lowing:
"The company. la::t fall cont thia of
ilce a receipt for unpaid interest for
collection, and the notice of same
wan naiied out to the old-'addross of
Mr. Pettobcnc, token from our card
record, bu? th? letter- WOB returned
unclaimed: .Mr. ("remen then noticed
from the telephone beak that a family
bf Pcttebones resided nt thc. sanie ad
I dress and communicated wjth" them
! hy phone, and was told that the orlgl
I nal family had moved to southern
I Maryland, that Mr. Pettebonc -.vas
I dead and that Mrs. Pettebonc was re
s?dln.c; with her son within a few
I mllcB of Annapolis. We then wrote
! our agent at Annapolis, bringing the
; matter to his attention,, and it was,
learned that th6~ widow and her aon
had moved lo South Carolina and thc
j local address in your State was as
certained. Wo then forwarced all' of
thc correspondence lu the case to
tho oom pan y with thc suggestion that
they tako the matter up direct with
your agency, we having been advised
definitely that we had located the
I right parties.
"The -beneficiary in this case ls Mrs.
? Jos?phine A. Pettebone, now living at
i No. 121, Bay street, Charleston. S.
C.. with whom our Mr. ' Billingham
mode settlement. Notwithstanding tho
fact that the insured .borrowed
$133.25 or fifty per cent of the 1861
premium, th? only one paid, the com?
pany's check in settlement of thia
case was for Si 10.21. .
"It will also bo ot' interest i you
to know that the company did not
roqulro the usual undertaker's and
physician's certificates, and that in
lieu of the policy an affidavit from
Mrs. Pc<t??bono regarding Its loss or
destruct.-rn waa sufficient. In other
words, tho company simply required
the usual claimant's certificate and
an official certificate of thc death of
tho Insured from the office whore such
records aro kept in Baltimore. Md.
"The Mutual Benefit la in truth
"The Unexpected Legacy Company."
I sud tho settlement ot this claim should
be of material assistance to you tn
your efforts for. hew business. I am
going to ask Mr. Dlllingham to get
for us a suitable letter. from Mrs.
i ? l?^bone. which I shall hope to have
.nt an early i/ato."
