Rev. Wellington Bowser, A. M., was born on a farm near Echo, Armstrong County, Pa., September 13, 1852, son of Loben and Martha Jane (Oliver) Bowser. He worked on the farm and attended the public school of his district until fifteen years of age, when he entered an academy. After he had finished courses in the academy and colloge, he taught school for several years and then went to India as a missionary, where he remained for seven years. On account of breaking health, he returned to America and held pastorates in the states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Compelled to relinquish the arduous labors of the ministry, he located at Pasadena, Calif., where he is now living. He has been keenly interested in our preparation of the Bowser history and has furnished valuable assistance. He married Fannie Waid. They have the following children : Vincent Earl, born at Rurki, India, under the shadows of the Himalaya Mountains; Ethel Maude, born at Karachi, a seaport on the Arabian Sea, and Genevieve Irene, born at Spartansburg, Pa.
