RICHMOND, VA., Dec. 18 - Mrs. Robert A. Gibson, the wife of the Bishop of Virginia, entered into rest yesterday morning at 7:15 o’clock.

Stuart and Churchill Gibson, and by three daughters, Misses Lucy, Frances and Mary Gibson. Her two sisters are Mrs. Hunter McGuire, of this city, and Mrs. Alexander Robertson, of Staunton.

John Ott was born in Hagerstown, Md., July 22, 1834, and when quite a youth entered the United States Treasury Department, at Washington, in a clerical capacity. He rose rapidly in the estimation of the treasury officials, and on one occasion, during a brief absence of the Comptroller, acted as Comptroller. In 1861 he resigned his position at Washington, and coming to Richmond, accepted a place in the Confederate Treasury Department, where he remained until the close of the war, though he saw considerable service as a member of Captain Ellery’s company, McAnerny’s Battalion. He was with his company when Captain Ellerly was killed at Hicks’ farm, on the Westham road, where Dahlgren’s last assault upon the Confederate lines was repelled. At the evacuation of the city by the Confederate forces, Mr. Ott accompanied the Treasury clerks to Greensboro, N. C., and after the cessation of hostilities returned to Richmond. Upon the organization of the National Bank of Virginia, he was given a clerkship in that institution, and rose to the position of assistant cashier. Later, when Mr. Brown, president of the bank, resigned, and went to St. Paul, Mr. Ott went with him. He remained in that city some eighteen months, and then came back to Richmond, to enter the service of the old Southern Fertilizer Company, with which he continued until it wound up its affairs. Mr. Ott then took the cashiership of the City Bank, but subsequently removed to Roanoke, where, after holding for a while the position of cashier of a bank, he became connected with the Iron Belt Building and Loan Association as its secretary. This place he held at the time of his death. Deceased was a man of wonderful range of information, especially upon economical subjects, and was a charming conversationalist. While a resident of Richmond, he was always in the fore-front of any movement calculated to advance her interests. He frequently contributed to the daily press, and had the financial, commercial and agricultural statistics of the country at his finger’s ends. For awhile he was associate editor of the Southern Planter, and as such, and through his connection with the Southern Fertilizer Company, was well known to the farmers of the South. He was public spirited to the last degree, and it may be truly said of him that he sacrifices his private interests to the public good. He was genial, warm hearted, and loyal in all his relations, and intensely devoted to his adopted State. Mr. Ott was for a number of years a member of the Executive Committee of the Virginia Historical Society, and his services in that relation were of extraordinary value in increasing its membership and advancing the general objects of the organization.
