Charles Clark Gibb born Harrisburg Penn 1890: When did he die?
« on: Thursday 28 July 16 22:54 BST (UK) »
I have not been able to find a date of death for this person.  He seems to have spent most of his life in Washington DC and his wife, Ethel, passed away in Maryland in 1966.  Can anyone help with this please?

Thanks, Robo.
I have the census records, but have not been able to find any record of his death.  The Illinois sounds, interesting, but I can't find that either!

Do you have an obituary or death certificate for Ethel?  If you could find out where Ethel is buried, maybe Charles was buried with her.

I see a Charles Gibb on findagrave.com with a birth year of 1890 who was buried in Illinois, but the middle initial given is different than yours and the Social Security Death Index seems to have the wrong birth date for him.  So looks like he is not the guy.

From snippets I can see here - http://www.rootschat.com/links/01i44/    - it looks like he died 11 Apr. 1962 in Providence Hospital in Washington, DC.

Thank you, Shelleyesq!    That link takes me to Genealogybank.com, which won't let me in without a sub, but from the bit I can see, that is certainly him.  Thanks so much for that, and thanks to Robo too.
