Ford Charles was found unconscious on the railroad a couple of miles south of Albion. He had come to Rome City some months before the death of Clark Houghton, who was then proprietor of the Lakeside House, to whom Charley engaged himself as cook. He was shabbily dressed and looked more like a pauper than a professor of music. But soon it was discovered that he could pound a piano similar to those fellows who are often found in lager beer saloons in cities. He soon courted and won the heart of one of the fair damsels of our place - one of fine musical talent. Against the earnest protestation of the father (the mother being dead) the 2 repaired to Sturgis, Michigan, and were married. The ‘Prof’ then undertook teaching music in Kendallville, Goshen and other places, which always proved futile, till at length word came that he had a wife living in Illinois, whom he had married under the assumed name of Wilson. As soon as this news was received, Mr. Hamlin (his father-in-law) proceeded to Michigan and brought his daughter home. Mr. Ford had in his possession when he took the fatal poison, letters addressed to his wife and his father-in-law and to the coroner’s jury. Excepts of his published statement follow. "To whom this may concern - I know that this is a case of suicide and will require a coroner’s jury to give a decision before burial. Blame no one for this. It is all done by my own hands. As I sincerely and devotedly loved my wife, Evangeline Adelia Ford, I sacrifice the great blessing of the world, life, for her and her alone. I destroyed life with morphine. Charles Harrison Ford."

There was a quarrel between the two and Wilson nearly killed Gibson with a shovel, breaking his collar bone. Later Gibson went out hunting with Wilson and never returned. Last August Everat Ritter, with a sheriff and one or two others, went into the mountains and found, without a doubt, the remains of Frank Gibson in a large crevice of a rock. Aside from the broken collar bone, there was found the deceased’s gold watch, which had his initials engraved on it. The gun and knife were found, also a pocket book containing $9 in money. The bones were badly scattered and one leg could not be found. The skull was blown into fragments. His watch was sent to his brother-in-law, Merrit J. Sweet. It is supposed that Frank Gibson was murdered for his money. Some cling to the theory that the hunter might have broken a leg among the rocks and shot himself to end his sufferings. It is in all probability one of the things that will never be known. Albion Democrat 2-7-1901
