    Died at his home in Richmond, the city of his residence since 1790. He came from Augusta with his famous bride and they were a welcome addition to Richmond society. After having done his duty faithfully as an officer throughout the Revolutionary War and passed unhurt through all its peril, he was, suddenly, when in full health killed by a fall from his horse in the streets of Richmond. But death however sudden never finds the sincere and fervent Christian unprepared and such was he. His name is perpetuated in that the eminence "Gamble's Hill" upon which his residence stood is called that still. He left a widow in Catherine Gamble who died in 1830. She was the daughter of Major John Gratton. She was noted for her beauty and courage. She once rode through the night to warn her pioneer neighbors of an impending Indian raid. There was no wife more devoted.
