Birth: Mar. 10, 1822
Monongalia County
West Virginia, USA
Death: May 23, 1893
Harrison County
Missouri, USA


"URIAH S. BOWEN, died at his home in Hamilton township, Harrison Co., Mo., May 23, 1893 at 9 o'clock. A.M., after an illness of some months through which he bore his sickness with patience, believing all the time that he would never get well but would cross the river of death to meet many loved ones that had gone on before.

He was 71 years, 2 months and 13 days old; was born in Mongolaha, Co., West Virginia, March 10th, 1822. Moved with his parents to Boone Co., Indiana, in the year of 1832, where he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Moore, February 16th, 1851. The result of this union was 13 children -- 9 sons, and 4 daughters. Seven sons and 2 daughters (all grown) survive him, also the wife of his youth. He was baptized August 12th 1883, by Elder Moses McHarness and confirmed by Elder Charles Shean. Funeral at the Lone Rock church, May 24th, 1893, in charge of Price McPeek. Sermon by Robert McElvin from John 3:-16:17, to a house full of sorrowing relatives and friends.

He moved from Boone Co., Indiana, with his wife and 2 children to Harrison Co., Mo., May 17th, 1854, to where he lived and died after many years of toil and trials, which none but the old settlers ever knew.

When the cruel war broke out many and many was the tears his wife and oldest children shed when he would start to Eagleville, Mo., to muster to the sound of the drum and fife. But as he was not considered an able-bodied man, he was spared to his family which they had great reasons to be thankful for for there was many a good father and son that was taken from their families that never returned. To such as those he was always ready to help and when they came to his door they were not turned away hungry. He was a strong Union man, a good neighbor, a kind husband and a true father that never, no never, taught his children to do wrong.

Dear father, thou are gone to rest;
We should not weep for thee;
For thou art now where oft on earth
Thy spirit longed to be.

Dear father, thou are gone to rest;
And this shall be our prayer.
That when we reach our journey's end,
Thy glory we may share.
