Obituary:
Mrs. Nancy Cowan, widow of William Cowan, died at the home of relatives in Kansas City February 19, 1908, and her remains were brought back to Monmouth for burial. In 1840 she married Mr. Cowan in Marion County, Missouri and came here at once to make her home. He preceded her in death about ten years. The family was among our most prominent. Mr. Cowan was a Veteran of the Civil War, and ran for some years a blacksmith shop on West Broadway just west of South A Street (which many of us older citizens will remember). He had served two terms as mayor, one as marshal and one as an alderman from the First Ward for five years. The couple made their come at 123 North B Street, and the old house still stands although in very dilapidated condition. It is just north of the Parochial school.
