Obituary

Sutton

The remains of William Gibson, who died at the state hospital for the insane at Waterbury, were brought here for burial last Thursday. Mr. Gibson was 61 years of age and was a soldier in the war of the rebellion. He was a brother of James B. Gibson and lived with him in Sheffield some years, when the latter lived in that town. There was a short service at the grave, conducted by Rev. Franklin Blake, and the burial was in J. B. Gibson's family lot.
