Gibson, Colin Campbell (1871–1897)

A telegram from Coolgardie on Saturday announced the death from typhoid on the previous afternoon of Mr. Colin Gibson, fourth son of Mr. A. F. Gibson of Burrungurroolong, Goulburn. Deccased was twenty-six and had been at Coolgardie about three years, where he owned a saw-mill. He had been ill for a month, and telegrams received here for some days left little hope of recovery. He was a popoular amateur rider at Tirranna races, and his untimely end has caused much regret amongst his friends.
