ANOTHER REVOLUTIONARY WORTHY GONE

Henry Gibson, the aged Revolutionary soldier, who attracted so much patriotic curiosity on the last celebration of Washington’s birthday in New York, expired at his residence in Orange county, a few days since, aged 101 years and 23 days.  He fought under General Washington, and was one of his body guard.  The deceased veteran was conveyed to New York, by the Continentals, and interred with military honors.
