The Atlanta Constitution, 14 Jun 1896
Mr. Joseph M. Bowen, a mechanic about forty-two years old, dropped dead yesterday morning at the residence of Mr. J. M. Crouch, 123 Nelson street, where he lived.
When Mr. Bowen rose yesterday morning he was as well as usual and seemed to be in excellent spirits. He laughed and talked with the different members of the famikly and did not seem to be sick in the least. He shaved himself and had just started across the hall when he dropped and in a few seconds was pronounced dead by a physician who lives in the house.
Mr. Bowen has been complaining of feeling bad for about two months, but he was never sick enough to stay at home from work and it was not thought that his sickness would end seriously. He was well known here and much liked by all who knew him and his sudden demise will be a shock to his many friends.
The funeral will take place this morning at 10 o'clock from the residence and the interment will be at Oakland cemetery.
