He also appears to have married Elizabeth's sister Mary Jeffers Kingsbury. A biography of Elizabeth's father Harvey Kingsbury (see his page for more) says "Two daughters were born to them, Elizabeth Wright and Mary Jeffers, both of whom married the late Hon. Henry E. H. Gilbert."
In 1870, Henry and Mary were living in Coventry. Henry is listed as a farmer with a $10,000 "value in personal estate."
The Hon. Henry E. H. Gilbert is buried in the Center Cemetery in Coventry.
