Fellow Hudson River school artists Jervis McEntee, along with Robert Ferguson Weir, Worthington Whittredge and Richard William Hubbard carried Gifford's casket to the cemetery. McEntee writes about it in his diaries: "As I came home in the twilight, I looked at the beautiful mountains where we had been so much together and which glorify so many of his canvases."
