John Allen COWDREY b. May 1, 1865 Green Co., MO. Jul 1, 1927 MO J.A. COWDREY Dies En- Route to Hospital About 6 o'clock Wednesday morning of last week, Mr. J. A. COWDREY of this town died about five miles north of Branson, Mo., while enroute to a hospital at Springfield, Mo. On Friday, May 27th,

Mr. COWDREY and several other parties were engaged mowing the weeds and grass off the Layton cemetery, getting it in shape for holding Memorial and Decoration services on Monday May 30th. Late in the afternoon Mr. COWDREY became ill - said he felt like he had an attack of cramp colic, and went home. A few hours later a doctor as called, and next morning he seemed to be better. His condition did not become alarming until Tuesday evening, when peritonitis developed, and it was decided that an operation was imperative. About midnight he was placed in Ebb CARSON'S car, and accompanied Mr. And Mrs. Troy COWDREY, Cam COWDREY, Ebb CARSON, Dr. WEAST, Lucian LAYTON and V.R. HOLT, they started for Springfield going via Harrison they secured an ambulance from the Holt Undertaking Company and the journey was continued. (Dr. WEAST returned home from Harrison.) At Hollister Mr. COWDREY suffered a sinking spell, and a doctor was called, and he revived, after which they started on to Springfield, with the results as stated above. After he had passed away, the party returned with his body to Harrison, where it was taken in charge by the Holt Undertaking Company and prepared for burial, and brought by them to his home in Yellville late Wednesday evening, where it lay in state until 3 o'clock Friday afternoon,

When it was conveyed to the Baptist Church where funeral services were conducted by his life-long friend, Rev. J.T. WILSON, of Kansas City. After the funeral services at the church, the body was taken in charge by the Masonic fraternity, of which order he was a member, and conveyed to the Layton cemetery, where it was laid to rest with Masonic honors. The high esteem in which Mr. Cowdrey was held by the people of Yellville and of the county was evidenced by the great throng of people who crowded the church to it utmost capacity, while many were unable to gain entrance. In honor of his memory, and through respect to the bereaved family, every business house in the town was closed from 2 to 4 o'clock, during the time of the funeral services. He was a member of the Christian Church, the Masonic Lodge and the W.O.W. The great floral offering attested to his worth, and the love and esteem in which he was held. Besides his wife, Mr. COWDREY leaves five children, three sons and two daughters, Troy, Cam, Allen and Miss Eva, all of Yellville, and Mrs. Myrtle JEFFERSON of Hot Springs. In his passing, his wife has lost a devoted and affectionate husband, his children a loving father, and the community one of its best citizens.

In this sad hour, the Echo joins the hundreds of friends of the family in extending to them heartfelt sympathies.
