Death of Sylvester Giffin

from the Waverly Gazette

Sylvester Giffin died at the home of his son Charles, at Kingman, Kansas, Monday Dec. 24.  The body was shipped here for burial by the side of his wife who died some twenty-five years ago.

Sylvester Giffin was born September 17, 1834 and in early life moved to Cole county Illinois, and a few years later came to Coffey county, Kansas, where he was one of the early settlers.  He lived in this county about thirty years, his wife passing away something like twenty-five years ago.  A few years ago he moved to Rush county, and later to Kingman where he made his home with his son Charles, and where he died Christmas eve, 1911, at 6 o’clock.

Mr. Griffin [sic] was one of the prominent characters of this part of Kansas for many years, and during the war of the rebellion he served three years in the army.  He has friends by the hundred who will be grieved to learn of his death.  He was the father of three sons and one daughter.  The body was laid to rest in the Waverly cemetery Wednesday, Dec. 27, after a very impressive funeral service at the Methodist church, conducted by Rev.  West in the presence of a large number of friends.
