Died at Terre Haute.

Mrs. James H. GIBSON died at Terre Haute, Ind., Saturday, after an illness of six months from consumption. She was well known in this city as Lelah CARPENTER, a daughter of the late Mrs. Joseph RICKSHER (sic - Caroline CLINE CARPENTER RICKSHER). Mrs. GIBSON was born and reared in Fairfield, and was married at Terre Haute in September, 1895, and had made that city her home since that time. Her husband and three children, girls ranging from one to seven years of age, survive her. There are many friends in this community who knew her as an excellent woman who will mourn her death. The body was brought here for interment. Funeral services were held at the residence of Joseph RICKSHER yesterday afternoon, conducted by Rev. H. O. Spelman.
