Obituary of EDWARD H. McKIBBEN
Death of E. H. McKibben

Tuesday forenoon a telegram was received from the Soldiers Hospital at Hot Springs, Arkansas, giving the sad news that E. H. McKibben had passed away. On the morning of the same day his children here had received a letter written by him in which he said he was feeling better, and by the tone of which he seemed to be in excellent spirits.

The telegram thus came as a great shock, not only to his family but to the community. Ed. McKibben has been so closely connected with the town ever since it’s beginning that it seems hard to realize that he has gone from it forever.

Mrs. McKibben will arrive with the body this evening on No. 1. Up to the hour of going to press we have been unable to learn what arrangements have been made for the funeral, but will probably be held in this city on Saturday.

We will give an extended account of the life of the deceased in our next issue. - Belpre Bulletin.

Mr. McKibben was well known in this county, and was a brother-in-law of D. Posey of South Garfield.
