Captain James Madison Gatewood - Last Civil War Veteran of Gallia County
Mr. Alexander Gibbons' daughter, Viola, aged 29 years, 11 months and 7 days, died yesterday at 12 1/2 o'clock p. m., after an illness of several months duration. The funeral services were held this morning at 8 1/2 o'clock. The remains will be interred at Gallipolis, leaving here today on the steamer Ohio in charge of Mr. William S. Sisson. The youngest daughter of Mr. Alex. Gibbons died about seven years ago. The next youngest, Naomi, died on the 5th of September last. Mr. Gibbons, who is a printer, and who has been unable to work more than a few days at a time during the past year or more, is also quite sick, and it is not expected that he will survive his daughter very long. Miss Jennie, who is quite worn out in watching and attending on her sister and father, and Mrs. Samuel Brammer, of Gallipolis, who was prevented by illness from coming here, are now the only children of this once interesting and happy family. These young ladies, before they were separated by death, were always together, they were always plainly but neatly dressed and they were highly respected by all who knew them.--Irontonian.

From an unavoidable circumstance the publication of the following notice has been delayed.
Mrs. Elizabeth Grimes, consort of John Grimes is no more. She departed this life on the 14th of June, 1854, aged 64 years and 2 months. Her disease was typhoid fever, and from the first created alarming symptoms. Medical aid was resorted to and every thing done to save her, but all failed. The deceased was a native of Pocahontas county, Virginia, and came to the State of Ohio in April, 1848. She was the mother of seven children, four sons and three daughters, all of whom are dead except two daughters. Her temper was quick and independent, like the steel and flint when much enforced shows a hasty spark, but soon is cold again.---She joined the Methodist E. church when young, and was a regular member in good standing for upwards of 40 years in Virginia. Her door was always open to the ministry and she took much delight in their company. She has the promise laid down in the Scriptures, which reads as follows: "And whosoever shall give drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward." And now we trust that herself and four sons and daughter are with Lazarus and in company with Abraham, "where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest." "O that I may die the death of the righteous and let my end be like theirs." She has left behind her two disconsolate daughters and her lonely husband to mourn their sad misfortune but we trust their misfortune is her eternal gain.
When I awake and shall behold his face, In righteousness I shall besatisfied; When I awake in his blessed likeness, My savior shall my life restore, And raise me from this dark abode, My soul and flesh shall part no more, But dwell forever near my God.

Thomas S. Grove
Thomas S. Grove was born April 15th, 1845, and died November 13th, 1880, in the 36th year of his age. The subject of this notice has been a resident of this county all his life, save for a short time, which he spent in Illinois. His occupation from his early youth has been that of a clerk, and all who have bought goods of him will remember him as a pleasant, affable and honest gentleman. He was a man of strong convictions and was fearless in expressing them. In 1871 he married Miss Sarah Kerr, the daughter of Samuel Kerr, Esq., and by her had four children, all of which survive him. He was an earnest, active member of the M. E. Church, and he died as he had lived, ready at any time to give an account of his stewardship. His funeral sermon was preached by the Rev. Hiram Howe to a large concourse of people, who gathered to pay their last respects to one they loved while he lived. His disease was consumption of the lungs, with which he had been afflicted for many years.

Sudden Death of Truman Guthrie.
Another link in the chain binding together the present and the past has been broken. We refer to the death of Truman Guthrie, which occurred at his residence in Clay township, last Thursday, and under circumstances which forcibly impress upon us the words of divine wisdom--"In the midst of life we are in death." In the forenoon of that day he was about his business in his usual good health, to all human appearances having before him many years of labor and usefulness. About noon he left the house to take a bucket of feed to his hogs. Not returning in a resonable time, he was sought after by a member of the family. Sad, indeed, was the result. He was found a short distance from the house, lying on the ground, dead, the bucket beside him. It is supposed he died of heart disease, and it was so sudden that he had no time to call for help.
Thus has passed away this good man . In all the relations of life--as a husband and father, as a neighbor and citizen, and as a christian gentleman--he was above reproach--esteemed and honored by every one who had the favor of his acquaintance. His age was 78 years. [Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, November 27, 1873 - Sub by Kathy McDaniel]
