ANOTHER CIVIL WAR VET GONE
William H. Gibson, 86 years old, and a veteran of the Civil war, died late yesterday afternoon at the home of a daughter, Mrs. George W. Barclay, 917 North Hall street. Gibson served in the Union Army in southern Iowa, western Missouri and northern Arkansas. He had resided in Webb City vicinity fifty years, and operated a dairy here.

The funeral is to be conducted by Rev. Mrs. Lou Love Saturday at 2 p.m. from the Christian Union chapel with burial at Carterville. (My note: Wm. Gibson served twice in the Civil War. First as a private in Company K, 15th Iowa Infantry, and secondly as a sergeant and Company Commissary Sergeant in Company I, 9th Iowa Cavalry. His obituary did not mention that his first military engagement as a private in the infantry was at the battle of Shiloh. He became very ill several days after the battle and was sent to the army hospital in St. Louis, and then to the army hospital in Keokuk, Iowa where he remained several months before he was finally discharged from service and sent home with the army surgeon's prognosis for his recovery as "Distant and uncertain." When he had recovered about 10 months later he enlisted in the cavalry regiment. His younger brother James Gibson also enlisted in the same regiment and company and served with William throughout the war until they were honorably discharged in March 1866.
