|Death of Judge Little|
Mrs. F. J. Sanker of Gallitzin has received a letter in which is noted the death on Friday, December 1st at Anton, Isthmus of Panama of her brother, Gilbert F. Little of malarial fever.
Gilbert F. Little was a son of the late Henry and Caroline Little, who resided at Loretto and was born there on the 2d of October, 1853. At the age of 21 years he entered the Indiana State Normal School and about a year afterward was admitted to the bar. He practiced his profession for several years and was then elected District Judge in Kansas, serving a term of two years in that state. At the expiration of his term, he was appointed a judge in the town of Hilo, Hawaii, and held that position for five years during the term of President McKinley. He was on a business trip to Panama when fever overtook him and caused his death.
Mr. Little was married about 28 years ago to Miss Martha Mason, of Kentucky, and moved to Seattle where his wife died about 13 years ago.
Mr. Little left Loretto 30 years ago, since which time he had traveled over a large part of the world.
He is survived by one child, Mrs. J. J. Holland of Tuna, Hawaii; one grandchild, Martha Holland and these brothers and sisters: Harry V. and Charles Little, both of Pittsburg; Mrs. F. J. Sanker of Gallitzin; and Mrs. D. S. Uhl and Miss Annie Little, both of Pittsburg. He was a nephew of A. J. Anderson of Altoona and S. Z. O'Hara of Munster, Cambria county.
