Bess Gallatin Gibson Victim of Elmira Blaze
Troy was stunned this Thursday morning by the shocking news that Mrs. Bess Gallatin Gibson, daughter of A. S. Gallatin and a former Troy girl, had been found dead in the bedroom of her apartment at 529 1-2 West Water Street, Elmira, apparently the victim of a fire in the bathroom.  The body was discovered at 8 p. m. Wednesday and the first news of the tragedy was received by Mr. Gallatin through the Elmira Advertiser of this Thursday morning.  According to the Coroner S. Tracey Hamilton, Mrs. Gibson received fatal third degree and general burns about the lower part of the body.  It is the supposition that she was burned in the bathroom, rushed out and collapsed in the bedroom.  She was found by Barrett E. Bacorn, owner of the building.  Fixtures in the bathroom were scorched but the walls did not ignite and the occupants of the apartment above were not aware of the tragedy until the body was discovered.  Circumstances surrounding the death of Mrs. Gibson have brought on an intensive police investigation.  Mrs. Gibson came to Troy in her yon girlhood, the family living in the house now occupied by the Schwab family, later in what is now the Cottage Inn.  She resided in Elmira following her marriage to Mr. Gibson.  She is survived by her husband, Malcolm D. Gibson, formerly prominent in theater management in Elmira., a son, Malcolm D. Gibson, Jr., Elmira, her father A. S. Gallatin , in Troy, a sister Frances Knapp, Riverdale, Md., and a brother, Jack Gallatin, Salem, Ohio.  - Troy Gazette-Register, January 20, 1938
