Death Notice:
Carroll Free Press
Carrollton, Ohio
Published Wednesday, July 27, 1898.
Last Thursday Dellroy people were shocked to learn that Gilbert Close had fallen from a freight train at Jewett and was instantly killed. He was on his way from Portland, near Steubenville, where he had been working in the mines, to meet his wife, who was visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Shaffer, in this place.

Gilbert was a young man of many fine traits of character and had a host of warm friends both here and in Carrollton, where he was well known. He was about 27 years of age, and leaves a wife and small child, who, with the aged father, have the sincere sympathy of all. The funeral services were held Saturday afternoon, Rev. Shuman officiating. A very large number followed his remains to their resting place with sad hearts, cherishing the influences of many kind words and deeds in the life so suddenly ended.
