Swain County Herald (Swain Co. NC) Thursday, March 7, 1889:
"North Carolina---The Rev. James Gibson, a colored preacher, was drowned in Sugar Creek in Mecklenburg County last Sunday. He undertook to walk across the creek on a log, and when about the middle of it, he fell and was swept down stream. The water being very high, his body has not yet been found."
