    (1854 - 1930) Mississippi native D. W. Gilbert came to Texas in 1874. Graduated from Missouri Medical College in 1881, he began his practice in Euless and Grapevine. In 1884 he moved to Sowers, purchased 1500 acres of farmland, planted a peach orchard and operated a dairy. He relocated to Irving in 1903, becoming one of the area's first physicians and a civic leader. Respected and beloved by those he served, Gilbert was buried here among his family.
