Death of Henry E. Gibbs
Henry E. Gibbs, a well known resident, died at his home on Maple Street Sunday afternoon after a long and painful illness from Bright's disease. Mr. Gibbs was was 71 years of age, having been born in Oxfordshire, England, on Nov. 22, 1844. In childhood he came to Canada, but the most of his life was spent in Stowe. He served in the Civil War a year and a half, being a member of Company D, 5th Vermont. He has been a member of H. H. Smith Post, G.A.R. for many years, and always had a deep interest in that organization.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Jane (Johnson) Gibbs, to whom he was married on Feb. 6, 1866, at Phillipsburg, P.Q., ; a son, Harry Gibbs, of this place, a daughter, Mrs. Frank Smith of Morrisville, four brothers, E. A. Gibbs of Waterbury Center, John Gibbs of Waterbury, William Gibbs of Morristown, and George Gibbs of Stowe, and five grandchildren.
The funeral was held at his late residence at 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon with F. T. Crane of Unity Church officiating, and internment was made in Riverbank Cemetery. There was a large attendance, members of H. H. Smith Post and W.R.C. attending in a body. The bearers were E.A. Gibbs, and George Gibbs, brothers of the deceased, and S, M, Brush and Jacksob Sargent, comrades of H. H. Smith Post. The floral tributes were large and beautiful, bearing silent witness to the high esteem in which Mr. Gibbs was held by his friends and associates.
Mr. Gibbs was a kind hearted, genial man, highly respected by young and old alike, and his demise, the town loses a good citizen, one who was deeply interested in the welfare in both his town and community.
Among those from out of town attending were, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Smith, A. C. Smith, Mr. and Mrs C. M. Bridge, and Mrs. F. H. Goodrich of Morrisville.
