Shelby Sentinel, 26 July 1894


Another old citizen has passed away. Mr. Samuel F. Bowdon breathed his last at his residence in this place (Calera) on Tuesday night at 8 o'clock. He had been in feeble health for some time, but until a day or two since able to be up. He was out in town when he was stricken with the attack, something like appoplexy, which was the mediate cause of his death. He was a native of Shelby county, and was sixty years old. He was married on July 8, 1857, to Miss Margaret F. Cunningham, of this county, who with five children, four sons and a daughter survives him. He resided all of his life in this county and was well known to this people. He was a kind husband, an indulgent father, a good neighbor and a good citizen,

His remains will be laid to rest at old Salem church about two miles from Montevallo at 1 o'clock, p.m., today. Rev. C. L. Dobbs will conduct the funeral services at the grave. The Sentinel extends sympathy to the bereaved ones in their sorrow.
