      OBITUARY
      Died in his 76th Year
      The death of Lawrence A. Bowes, a well known and respected farmer of Wea township occurred last Monday afternoon July 27th, 1914, at four o'clock, at his country home, 4 miles northeast of Louisburg. His illness covered a period of several weeks, although he had been in failing health for the last two and one-half years. Death was from a complication of diseases, he being aged 76 years, 8 months and five days.

      Born in County Kilkenny, Ireland, November 22, 1837, he with his parents, sought America for land upon which to build the family tree, when the subject of this sketch was barely 10 years old. The family settled in Perry County, Ohio and there the father died in 1856. When coming into manhood and with his mother's consent, he moved to Fairfield County. In 1868, he came to Kansas and bought the farm east of Louisburg and here his death occurred on last Monday afternoon.

      Mr. Bowes was married in Lancaster, Ohio in 1862, to Miss Jennie Ward, who died two years later leaving a daughter, who is now Mrs. F. J. Wiseman, of Wichita, Kansas; she was at her father's bedside when death came. For several years after coming to Kansas, Mr. Bowes was a contractor in railway construction. Later he took up farming and followed that occupation the remainder of his life. In 1873, he went back to Ohio and married Miss Mary Louisa Flemm, who, with two sons, survive. The oldest son, Charles E., is married, has children and lives on his farm several miles from the home place; he is doing well. And Thomas B. is at home with his aged mother. Two sisters, Maggie, is Mother Superior in an Ohio Convent and Nora the youngest, is a trained nurse, and lives in Columbus, Ohio. One brother, T. H. is a man of influence and of property holdings in Columbus, Ohio.

      Years ago when the Populist party thrived, Mr. Bowes was an active worker for that party, and he, with other leaders, made speeches all over this section of Kansas. At one time he sought the office of county commissioner on the Populist ticket but was defeated. In later years, Mr. Bowes was an independent voter and free thinker. He was fond reader of good books and poetry, and a writer of no small means. He wrote as he talked, and being possessed with a ready vocabulary his matter was always interesting and contained food for thought.

      Funeral services were held at the Louisburg Catholic church this morning at ten o'clock, Rev. Father P. R. McNamara, officiating. Interment was in Louisburg catholic cemetery. A large crowd of friends, from far and near, was in attendance.

      L. A. Bowes was a remarkable man in many respects. In social and business affairs he was honest; he passed through both adversity and prosperity. Well may his two sons and aged wife honor him and well may our community mourn his death. He always gave a word of encouragement to the young and his ready smile and hearty greeting will be missed from our streets. The writer has known Br. Bowes for the last eight years and having had dealing with him knew him to be a man, who is fair to all men, a man of splendid type of both moral and physical manhood, a credit to the Isle of his birth.

      Lida married Lawrence A. Bowes on 28 Oct 1873 in Lancaster, Fairfield County, Ohio. They are known to have two children:
      -Charles Edward (1874-1938)
      -Thomas Burke (1875-1945)

      OBITUARY
      Mrs. Mary Louisa Bowes, widow of the late Lawrence A. Bowes, died on Saturday morning, March first, 1919, at 5:10 o'clock, at her home, four miles northeast of Louisburg, Kansas. She was aged 73 years and 10 months, and had been in failing health the past year and bedfast the last several months.

      Mary Louisa Flemm was born April 28th 1845, at Lancaster, Ohio and was married to Lawrence A. Bowes at Lancaster on October 28th, 1873. The couple came West in 1877, first stopping about six months at Kansas City, thence on to this county, where they settled and set about building the present home place, "Sunny Side" farm. Two sons: Charles E. and Thomas B. were born to this union at Lancaster, Ohio. Charles Bowes resides near West Line, Missouri, and Thomas has always been at home. The husband passed away on July 27, 1914. The deceased was the eldest of a family of eight children, three brothers and four sisters, the sisters all survive. They are: Mesdames Minnie Elliott, Emma Brooke, Helen Bowen, and Anna Jefferies.

      Impressive funeral services were conducted by Reverend Father Pottsgeisser from Louisburg Catholic church last Monday morning at 10:30 o'clock, burial being in the church cemetery.

      Mrs. Bowes was of an affectionate disposition, brave, bright and winning in her ways, so that friendship's circle was to her a large one. Indeed, it may be said of her that "none knew her but to love her" and her best monument will be the good report that she has left behind her in the community in which she has lived for more than thirty-two years.

      Relatives from Kansas City, who attended the funeral services were: Mrs. W.P. Hayde and daughter, Veronica; Martha Welch and Miss Laura Welch.
