Following information provided by Johnny Walker: Irvin C. Gibson died in 1896 after helping to prepare a neighbor's body for burial. In those days the neighbors served as undertakers most of the time. Apparently he caught pneumonia from the dead neighbor and died just a few days later. He was buried in a small family cemetery near the home of his father, Porter Gibson, which was located near the county corners of Benton, Carroll, Henderson, and Decatur counties. The old cemetery was located in Decatur County, Tennessee very near the county line. Porter Gibson was also buried in this same cemetery. J.W.C. Gibson had often talked of having his father, Irvin C. Gibson, moved from this backwoods cemetery to New Hope Cemetery near Yuma, Carroll Co., Tennessee where his mother was buried. In 1974, after the car accident which took the life of J.W.C. Gibson and his wife, J.W. Gibson decided to fulfill the wishes of his father and have the body of Irvin C. Gibson moved. The grave of Irvin C. Gibson is now marked at both the original burial site and at New Hope Cemetery, Carroll County, Tennessee.
