Subject: Obit for Martha Gibbs Rose
I am a genealogy volunteer at the Will Rogers Library in Claremore, Rogers Co., OK. I received your request on October 26, 2007, and did some microfilm work this evening and found a 'blurb' in the Claremore Messenger, dated Friday, March 5, 1920. The Claremore Messenger was a weekly paper at this time and has not been in existence for some time.
I am scanning the portion of the page that had the 'item' regarding Mrs. Rose's death. I looked through the rest of March to see if there was any other mention of Mrs. Rose, i.e. a Card of Thanks, etc., but did not find anything else. I hope that it will be of some help to you.
Mrs. Rose, mother of Joe Gibbs, of this city, who died at her western home las week, wa buried in this city Sunday and the funeral was largely attended by friends of the family: Chas A. Gibbs, of Sapulpa, Frank Gibbs and family of Sand Springs, Mrs. Etta Snyder of St. Louis, Mrs. Tony Matney, of Kansas City, Mr. Russell of Muskogee, Mrs. Etta Snyder of St. Louis, Miss Victorine Fry of Edmund and Miss Mary Fry of Pittsburg, Kansas.
