Sunday’s Obituary – Barbara (Frick) Gamble

Barbara Gamble is my 4th great grandmother.

Me to Barbara Frick

I have found her name and relationship to John L Gamble in his military pension papers. ¬†Using the obituary index on the genealogy page at the Butler Area Public Library, I ordered a copy of Barbara’s obituary.

Butler Citizen, 28 March 1890, Page 2, Column 2, Film # 015, Butler Area Public Library.

GAMBLE – In this place, suddenly, March 26, 1890, Mrs. Barbara Gamble, wife of Mr. John Gamble, aged 71 years.

On Wednesday evening, about 6 o’clock, Mrs. Gamble was in the toll house on the plank road kept by her husband, when she was, without any warning, stricken with paralysis. ¬†She was removed to her home nearby, where she died about 10 o’clock the same evening.
