Northfield News

The death of Hon. Warren Gibbs occurred at his home in Chicago, April 27, at the age of 67 years. He was a native of this state and spent most of his time within its borders. He was a faithful soldier in the rebellion and afterwards was a most active and zealous "Republican, being at one time chairman of the Republican state committee. He was editor of the "St. Albans Daily Messenger" for a number of years, and after his retirement from that position went to Chicago to reside. He never, however, lost interest in his native state and the host of friends he acquired during his long residence in Vermont will regret to learn of his death.

His death was caused by blood poisoning, resulting from a wound in the head which was received in the war of the rebellion. The bullet had never been removed. The 'boys' of the post attended the funeral on Sunday.
