Barbara Gamble is my 4th great grandmother.
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.
