Birth: 1839
Death: Sep. 17, 1862
Washington County
Maryland, USA

Son of Daniel and Sarah Gibboney.
Corporal, Co. G 125 Pa. Infantry. Killed at Antietam.

Hollidaysburg Democratic Standard, 4 March 1863:

"THE HONORED DEAD- The bodies of James Gibboney and James Riddle, sons of Daniel Gibboney of Duncansville and J.B. Riddle of Frankstown township, and members of Company G, 125th Regiment, who fell at the battle of Antietam, were brought home last Thursday. The remains of young Gibboney were interred in the cemetery at Duncansville and those of young Riddle in the Presbyterian cemetery, this place, and were followed to their last resting place by an unusually large concourse of weeping relatives and sympathising friends. Peace be to their honored ashes."

Note: The standard made a correction one week later, stating that Gibboney was buried in the Presbyterian Cemetery.
