"GIBSON--FORMER CEDARVILLE PHYSICIAN PASSES AT ALTURAS FRIDAY NITE--Dr. A. GIBSON, pioneer physician of Alturas and prominent in the development of Modoc County for the past forty years, passed away suddenly at 8:35 last evening (Friday) following only five or six minutes illness. The doctor, who had been in his usual health, had an appointment with a patient in his office, when he became ill. Dr. W. J. VERLING of the Home Drug Store, was notified and rushed to his aid. Dr. P. W. MCKENNEY, who was associated with Dr. GIBSON in business, was hastily summoned from the 20-30 dinner in progress at the Niles and with the assistance of Dr. VERLING carried him into his office to the couch, where he expired in a very few seconds. The doctor was sitting on the steps at the head of the stairway, leading into the office. He was gasping for breath and told those who came to aid him that he was near the end and was going soon. The doctors' death is a shock to the entire community as he was perhaps the most widely known of any residents to all of Modoc County. He came to Alturas in 1887 direct from College and was associated with his brother, Dr. Sam GIBSON. At first, he settled in Surprise Valley where he met his wife, Miss Lillie STEVENS. Later they moved to Alturas, where Dr. and Mrs. GIBSON and their daughter, Pearl have since resided. A nephew, Thomas R. GIBSON, accompanied by M. E. DAY arrived here from Reno this morning to assist Mrs. GIBSON with the funeral arrangements. Mrs. Thomas GIBSON went to San Francisco to accompany Mrs. Pearl SEPULVEDA to Alturas to attend the funeral.
