GIBSON, James -- Mr. James Gibson died last Friday afternoon, Nov. 18 at four o'clock, of pneumonia, after an illness of two weeks. The funeral services were held at the home on Sabbath afternoon, and were conducted by Rev. Allison, assisted by Rev. Young. The choir of the Presbyterian Church sang several appropriate selections. There was a large gathering of friends and neighbors. The remains were interred at Brenton Cemetery.
Mr. Gibson was born Ayshire, Scotland, sixty three years ago, and came to this country when nineteen years of age. He settled first in Knox Co., ILL. and lived there for seventeen years, after which he moved to Weston, living there for three years. Twenty three years ago he moved to this section, having purchased the farm south of town which is still known as the Gibson farm. Mr. and Mrs. Gibson were married April 3, 1855, and there were born to them two children, Anna and William.
William died April 1891. He is remembered by most of the people in this town as one of the most worthy young men who has ever lived here. After a lingering illness, Mrs. Anna (Gibson) Switzer died in March 1894. She too is well remembered, having been held in highest esteem by all who knew her.
Mr. Gibson is very highly spoken of by those who were well acquainted with him and who have known him for many years. He leaves no near blood relatives, all the other members of his father's family having died many years ago. We are sure that Mrs. Gibson and the four grandchildren who live with her, have the heartfelt sympathy of the people of the whole community.

Card of Thanks
We wish to thank our friends for the kindness shown us at the funeral of our dear husband and grandfather.
Mrs. Gibson and Grandchildren" [November 26, 1898 (name of newspaper unknown, assumed Piper City Journal) - submitted by Jan Dishon]

GIBSON, Mary ..... Funeral of Mrs. Mary Gibson
At 2 o'clock P.M. last Sabbath, as per previous announcements, Rev. M. C. Long assisted by Rev. De La Gardie preached the funeral discourse over the remains of the late Mary Gibson, whose death we announced in our last issue. Rev. Long took for his text, Romans 8-28; "All things work together for good to them that love God."
A large number of friends and neighbors assembled to pay their last respect to the memory of the deceased and the audience gave the closest attention to the interesting and appropriate discourse delivered.
The choir furnished excellent music including a fitting selection rendered in a duet by W. O. McKinney and Miss Kate McKinney.
The coffin was beautifully banked in choicest flowers furnished by loving hands.
At the close of the services the audience were permitted in passing out the vestibule to view the remains, which were richly laid out and encased in a heavily trimmed coffin. Many friends followed the remains to the grave in Brenton Cemetery, where the final benediction was pronounced.
Mrs. Gibson whose maiden name was Mary Scott, was born 67 years ago at Auchlock, Ayrshire, Scotland. She was married April 3, 1855 , at Auchlock and soon thereafter came across the ocean, to America. The family first settled in Oneida, Knox County, then soon after came to Weston, and following that to Piper City. Years ago Mr. Gibson departed this life leaving Mrs. Gibson and one daughter and one son. The son, Willie Gibson, also died here, and he was in time followed by the daughter, Mrs. Henry Switzer, who left behind her four children, Charles, Myrtle, Willie and Grace, and whom found a most excellent home with the grandmother, here in Piper City. To these it is understood a home still remains by will of the decease, the estate including $5000 life insurance. Among Mrs. Gibson's many other excellent qualities will always stand to her credit her motherly devotion to her motherless grandchildren. In 1891 Mrs. Gibson gratified a longing to see the land of her nativity once more, and in company with Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Montelius crossed the ocean, and made quite an extended visit among the friends of her youth in old Scotia, but when she got back she told the writer that she had had a good visit, of course, but that there was no place for her, after all, like dear America. A good woman has gone to her rest and her many virtues will be kept green in the memory of those who knew her.
Among the friends and relatives from abroad who attended the funeral were Mrs. Janet Hobbs, and daughter, Mrs. Sarah Moore, and two children of Oneida, Mrs. John Mapel of Fairbury, Mr. and Mrs. D. D. Fultz of Saunemin, Mr. and Mrs. Wright and Mr. and Mrs. J McNaught and children of Roberts and Mr. and Mrs. A. A. McCann of Forrest.

GIBSON, W. W. . -- it is with sorrow we record the death of W. W. Gibson who died at his mother's home in this Village April 23rd, 1891, at the age of twenty-five years, after a protracted illness of many weeks. Willie was a universal favorite among old and young alike. Socially and as a business man he was highly esteemed by all who knew him. He was of sterling worth and strict integrity, and will be sadly missed by his many friends, and especially by his dear mother who has the heartfelt sympathies of the whole community. He was her only son and stay. His funeral will take place from the Presbyterian church on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock."
