Death and Burial of N.J. Gibbs

Mount Clemens, MI

Mount Clemens Press, Thursday, July 7, 1892, p.1.

The community was greatly shocked last Friday morning upon hearing of the sudden death of Northrup J. Gibbs, architect, of this city.  He accidentally fell from his horse in front of his own home on Thursday evening, and died the next morning.  The attending physician is reported as saying that he thought he suffered a stroke of paralysis before he met with the accident.

The deceased was born in Sterling township, this county, July 2, 1838. He was educated in the district schools and Agricultural College at Lansing.  He was schooled in art and drawing by Prof. I.T. Smith, of Detroit.  In 1861 he entered the army, serving until 1864, and had a good record.  After his discharge he located at St. John and in 1874 moved to this city.  In 1864 he married Miss Emma Davey, of Warren, who with a daughter,, Mrs. Dr. Croman, survive him.

The funeral services occurred at the family residence on Sunday afternoon and were quite largely attended, being conducted by Rev. John Sweet.  The Elks had charge of the burial and were out in full regalia 32 strong, all being members of lodges elsewhere as there is no lodge of the order here.
