Ezekiel GILMAN

EXEKIEL GILMAN DEAD
Died at the residence of Mr. H.S. SIMMONS, Coinjock, Currituck County, N.C., June 29th 1900 at 10 a.m., Ezekiel GILMAN, ESQ., in the 84th year of his age. He was born at Newburyport, Mass. on January 24th 1817. He prepared for college at Phillips Academy, Exeter, New Hampshire and entered Harvard University September 1835 from which he graduated in 1839. After graduation, at the urgent solicitation of his father, young GILMAN began to study law but foreseeing that its practice was unsuited for his tastes, he dropped this pursuit. Declining health at this time obliged him to seek a home in the more genial climate of the South and in 1841 he came to North Carolina where an elder brother had preceded him and resided at Currituck Court House, boarding with Jamez (sic) WILLIAMS, ESQ., his first friend in the land of his adoption, and by whose tomb he chose his last resting place. As a livelihood he began teaching which he pursued for 50 consecutive years, in some instances teaching three generations. In 1891, from deafness and dumbness, companions of old age, he discontinued his school. He never married and we believe he leaves no relative in the state.
