DLS 26 Sep 1876 p4 c4: Strange Incidents. Last Friday, Dan. Gilliland, a man well known in this community, died after a lingering illness. For five years before he and his wife lived separate, yet neither one applied for a divorce and were on friendly terms. Two weeks before the death of G., he was confined to his bed, at his sister's residence and sent for his wife to attend him. She cheerfully complied with his request and watched him as faithfully, and attended him as tenderly as though no trouble had existed between them. She watched over him day and night, procured knickknacks, took him riding in a carriage, was the means of his profession religion and joining the church, and after his death buried him at an expense to her of about $100. After he was buried, she hired parties to watch his grave for four nights, lest his remains might be disturbed for dissecting purposes. A week before G.'s death, the parted pair agreed to live together thence forward until death, and the deceased had not given up to die until an hour before life was extinct. At the request of the husband, the wife has agreed to her mourning for two years and never marry. . .
