Henderson Gibson for 25 years a resident of this city, died at the home of his daughter at Plymouth, Ind., 29 miles south of Richmond, Tuesday night following an exteded illness of a complication of disease.
Mr. Gibson was born in Kentucky in 1841, and was at the time of his demise nearly 75 years of age. About a quarter of a century ago he came to this city and until three years ago he made his home here. The deceased married Miss Nellie Gibson in 1860, but his wife preceded him to the grave in 1908. At the outbreak of the civil war Mr. Gibson answered the call of his country and served several years in the strife. During his residence in this city because of his strong characteristics, he made many friends all of whom now lament his departure from this world.
