      Well-Known Resident of Drumbo District Was Buried Here

      The funeral took place to the Ayr Cemetery on Saturday afternoon of the late John Mitchell Gibson of Drumbo, whose death occurred on Thursday, in his 78th year. The services were in charge of Rev. John Richardson, Pastor of Willis United church, Drumbo, and the pallbearers were six sons of the deceased, viz., William and Charles, Wolverton; Fred and Oliver, Drumbo; Stanley, Clarksburg, and Norman, Alvinston. The late Mr. Gibson was born at Peter Head, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and had resided in the Drumbo district for a period of almost half a century, where he was well and favorably known. Besides his widow, whose maiden name was May Stewart Milne, and the six sons mentioned above, he is survived by two brothers in Scotland and one sister, Mrs. Alex. Mackie, Drumbo. Two sons, George, and James, lost their lives in the great war, and one son, Roy, died seven years ago.
