Well Known Man Dead

John Gambler Passed Away Today at the Residence of His Parents

After a lingering illness of over a year, John Gambler, son of Rev. and Mrs. Uriah Gambler, passed away this morning at the residence of his parents, 1008 Guilford street. Deceased was aged 33 [35] years and the immediate cause of death was consumption. He was highly respected and was well known throughout the city and county. He was a faithful member of the United Brethren church, and his death will be much regretted by all who knew him. He was married to a Miss Snavely, who, with five children, survive him. The widow and children have the sympathies of many friends in their sad bereavement. Deceased was a cigarmaker by trade and until his illness began he was employed in local cigar factories.

Epitaph on John William's grave reads:

"The golden Gates were opened wide.
A gentle voice said "Come,"
And angels from the other side
Welcomed our loved one home."
