"IN MEMORIAM
John J. Giebner
On Saturday afternoon, March 6, 1886, John J. Giebner of Sandy Lake, in the fifty-fourth year of his age passed away.

For a number of years the deceased has been affected with a cancer on his left hand, and though it has been treated by skillful physicians, and times seemed to indicated improvement under such treatment. In July last it assumed such a virulent character that amputation was deemed necessary. This was skillfully performed, and for a time hopes were entertained of his recovery, but in a few months the insidious disease manifested itself under his arm, and a second, and very severe, operation was resorted to in its removal, but without avail, as its effects so permeated his naturally vigorous system as to reduce him to general helplessness and ultimate death.

The deceased was a son of the late Augustus Giebner of Worth township, and was born and always lived upon the old family homestead where he died, and for many years has been marked as an upright, consistent and honored member of society and of the Wesleyan Methodist church. He leaves an aged mother (Nancy), a faithful, loving and beloved wife (Elizabeth) and three daughters, with numerous relatives and friends, to mourn their loss."

NOTE: One of the physicians treating John was his first cousin, Dr. E. X. Giebner.
