Dr. Charles Harrison Gibson, a well known and successful physician of this city, died at his residence, 57 West Franklin St., at 7:45 o'clock this morning of chronic stomach trouble, aged 51 years. Dr. Gibson had been critically ill for several months, his recovery having been despaired of for some days. He was confined to his bed for three weeks and gave up all hope of getting better. At his earnest solicitation as well as his family an exploratory laparotomy was performed on him on Thursday by Drs. Ragan, Wareham and Boyle as the last chance of possibly benefiting him or saving his life. The operation revealed an extensive malignant disease of the stomach and bowels of a fatal character.

Dr. Gibson immediately afterward entered one of the hospitals in Cincinnati as resident physician for one year, and afterwards practiced in that city until 1875. The old Gibson home in which Chief Justice Gibson, Hon. John Bigler, Governor of California, and Hon. Wm. Bigler, Governor of Pennsylvania, relatives of Dr. Gibson were born, is still standing at Gibson's Rock and occupied by a brother of the deceased.
