The Burial of Harriett (Fadden) Gibson

Harriett (Fadden) Gibson died less than two years after the death of her husband, Arnold R. Gibson.  An unusual aspect of her death is that she died, not in Vermont where she lived all her life.  She died in Albany, New York, and her body was removed to Worcester, Vermont to be buried next to her husband.
