At Bath, Kent, on the 14th August last, the widow of the late John Giberson, aged 83 years, 10 months. The deceased was the mother of 10 children, 98 grandchildren, 90 great grand children. A widow for 43 years, she devoted herself faithfully to the careful upbringing of her own children, 2 adopted children besides several of her grandchildren. She was always hospitableto the full extent of her means, and got her living by the sweat of her face. For 5 months before her death she became helpless and during this time often used to speak of her conversion when a little child. A number of years after her conversion she was baptized by her brother Rev. G.W. Orser. She lived a Christian to the last. Her funeral was attended by Elder Estabrook, assisted by Rev. G.W. Orser. A sermon was preached from Revelations 14th Chapter and 13th verse. "Even down to old age all my people shall prove His soverign, eternal, unchangeable love, And when hoary hairs shall my temples adorn Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne."
