From the January 31, 1884 LaFayette Sun: Gibson F. Hill We are filled with sorrow to learn that our old friend and countryman, Gibson F. Hill, died in Louisiana, on the 22nd day of this month. Mr. Hill, was a native of Chambers County, and possessed all the virtues of a true and noble manhood. He was a grandson of the late Wade Hill, who lived for many years in the town of LaFayette. The family was among the most prominent and respected in the history of the county. The very name of Hill will live for years in the annals of this county. We sorrow for those who weep over his grave. An Old Friend.
(NOTE: Obit for his daughter, Ida Hill McMahan, is also posted. They died within a few days of each other. gb)
