Rutland Daily Herald & Globe, Dec. 3, 1884:
A very serious accident occurred yesterday afternoon at West Rutland which will probably terminate fatally. Gilbert Hanley was riding in a carriage which was overturned and he was thrown to the ground with great force striking upon his head and fracturing his skull. Drs. Pond, Hanrahan and Stearns were at once summoned and trephined his skull, removing eight square inches of the bone. His recovery is considered doubtful.
Rutland Daily Herald & Globe, Dec. 6, 1884:
West Rutland - The funeral of Gilbert Hanley, who was killed by a fall from his carriage, occurred on Friday and was largely attended. The deceased was a pensioner of the civil war and leaves a family of several children.
