GILLILAND, GILBERT JOSEPH, 1905-1967
(Lean ancestry: Gilbert Joseph Gilliland1 Mary Elizabeth Lean2, Richard Cullis Lean3, Thomas Lean4, Thomas Lean5, Robert Lean6, Richard Leane7, Robert Leane8, Lewis Leane9, Henry Leane10)
Mad trapper dies of heart attack.
The mad trapper of Eels Creek, who wasn't mad at all, is dead at 62 of a heart attack.
Gilbert Gilliland, who trapped since grade school days at Baltimore, near Cobourg, Ontario, was found dead Wednesday night in his cabin on the creek nine miles north of Apsley, Ontario.
He had trapped a thirty-five square mile line south of Eels Lake since he moved into the old road-camp cabin thirty-five years ago. He made a living mainly on beaver pelts and lately did a bit of off-season lumbering.
Nearly ten years ago, he caught a lake trout of eighteen pounds, fourteen ounces, far the largest Eels Lake has produced. He enshrined it in a deep freeze to be viewed by visitors, called it "Old Gus", and spent nine summers trolling in vain for a bigger one.
