Indianapolis Sentinel Indianapolis, IN Saturday, April 9, 1881 Issue: 99 Page: 4

HON. M. C. GARBER died yesterday at his home in Madison. He was the editor of the Courier, and Postmaster of Madison. He was generally respected, and his death will be mourned by all who knew him. The Sentinal of Monday last contained a special from Madison announcing that Mr Garber had been stricken with apoplexy on Sunday morning. This has prepared, in some measure at least, our readers for the intelligence of his death this morning.
