In Pleasant Lake, Indiana, April 19, 1891, Mr. David S. Gilbert, aged 63 years, 9 months and 4 days. David S. Gilbert was born in Lorain County, Ohio, July 15, 1827, and removed with his parents to Indiana in 1843.

In 1852 he joined a company and went to California. He returned in 1856, and in November of that year was married to Miss Lucy Gaylord, who died February 19, 1864, leaving him with four motherless children, the youngest of whom died shortly after. In October, 1866, he married Miss Permelia Grant, who survives him. He leaves five children, three of whom are by the former marriage, seven grandchildren and many relatives and friends to mourn his death.

Mr. Gilbert was a man of more than ordinary ability and in some directions manifested marked talent. He always inspired confidence and gained the respect of his fellow townsmen, as an evidence of which they frequently placed him in positions of trust. Although never making a public profession of religion, he frequently attended services and was always an attentive listener, and took more than a casual interest in the affairs of the church. All knew him as a good neighbor, a kind father and a loving husband.
