  • Obituary, 12 JUL 1893: "'DEATH OF T. J. GILLES: He Expired Just After Midnight After a Long Illness - He Was an Old Resident of the City and Was Highly Respected.'
    T. J. Gilles an old resident of the city, died at 11:40 o'clock this morning at his late home on Madison avenue near Front street. For six weeks past he had been lying sick with jaundice and toward the latter part of his sickness his death was not unexpected. The funeral will be held in the Crescent Avenue Church, Saturday afternoon.

    Mr. Gilles was born in Philadelphia in 1815, where he lived through boyhood and some years into manhood, after which he went to New York. He engaged in the furniture business which he conducted successfully for several years and later bought a farm in Washington Valley. He was the inventor of an iron coffin, as well as an iron bedstead and iron lawn furniture. He at one time conducted a business both in New York and Philadelphia. He came here in the war time and engaged in the auctioneer business in connection with other matters, and continued it
    Up to the present time. Twenty-three years ago he was Chief of Police in this city. He was prominent in the Republican party, an active fireman in his earlier years, and until his death a prominent member of the Exempt Fireman's Association. He was universally beloved as well outside and within his family. He was a sensitive man and very scrupulous. One of his particularities was the fact that he never said 'good bye' when parting with friends. He said it once that is known of when parting for the last, time as it proved, with Dr. Zegilo.

    Mr. Gilles family originally consisted of fourteen children, ten of whom and his wife are still living. Three of them, Mrs. Edward Ryder, Miss Mabel Gillies and Theodore Gillies in this city. He belonged to a family of nine children, two of whom are now living, Mrs. Emily Gilles, and Mrs. Charles McGlatherey [sic.], both of Philadelphia. He was twice married. His mother was a Philadelphian and his father a native of Holland."
