John Bowden Dawe
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar., 1847
Cornwall, England
Death: Feb. 1, 1917
Lancashire, England

John was born the youngest of two sons to James Dawe and Joanna Bowden in Linkinhorne, Cornwall. He is the brother of Richard Bowden Dawe. James was a coal miner. They lived in the area until the late 1870's, Their eldest son, Richard, had moved his family to Yorkshire about the mid-1870's. James, Joanna, and their children and their families followed.

Before leaving, John had married Susan Stephens Brooks. They had one child in Cornwall; three more were born in Yorkshire. John moved there family to Lancashire where another child was born in 1889.

Like his father and brother who were miners, John worked also in the mines, but his children worked in the textile mills. This was a new life.

Although they each died in different years, John and Susan are buried in a plot with their oldest son, John Thomas Brooks Dawe in Burnley Cemetery. Because the son was only 25 when he died, I don't believe he ever married. The father, John, lived to enjoy his grandchildren.

Note: I have not seen this cemetery, but I was told the section with the Dawe stone, is in an older section. It is in poor condition and not maintained. It was described to me as quite dangerous.

You were a good son to your parents, a good husband, and good father to your children. Life can't ask more of a man.
