Paralysis Kills Woman
Carlisle, Ind., June 14- Mrs. Dan Bowen who resided near Bethlehem church died on Friday morning June 10, after having been confined to her bed for about two months with a paralytic stroke. The funeral was preached by Rev. W. F. Russell pastor of the M. E. church and interment at the Indian Prairie cemetery.
June 17, 1910
Harriett Matilda Morris, a daughter of John and Jemima Morris, was born near Bruceville, Knox county, Indiana, July 9, 1868, and closed her earthly pilgrimage at her home June 11, 1910, aged 41 years, 11 months, and 2 days.
She was united in holy marriage to Daniel Bowen Feb. 21, 1894, by the Rev. J. L. Weeks, at that time pastor of the Indian Prairie Baptist church. To this union thre children were born, of whom, Roscoe, nine years old, and Hester, four years old, survive her, the other dying in infancy.
From her youth to the end of the race she was a follower of the Christ. She was converted at the altar in the old church at Bethlehem on the Carlisle charge, under the pastorate of the Rev. St. Clair, when she was between eleven and twelve years old. At the same she united with the church. During these thirty years of membership her devotion to its interests was constant and her life was filled with good deeds. In the church she was numbered among the faithful, embracing the full Christian faith, to which she held firmly to her life's end.
About four years ago she was very ill, caused by heart trouble and dropsy, with a light stroke of paralysis. She was sick for about three months, and has never been well since that time. But on March 15th, just after dinner, while her pastor, husband and brother and herself were talking she was again stricken, from which she never recovered. Though her affliction was sad, she bore it with great patience and without complaint. She was a kind and loving wife, a good mother, an excellent neighbor and was loved by all who knew her.
She leaves behind her on these shores of time a husband, two children, two sisters- Mrs. J. E. Sidebottom, of Graysville, the wife of Rev. J. E. Sidebottom; and Mrs. Elzora Robbins, of near Paxton; also two brothers- Thomas and William Morris, and a number of other relatives, with a host of friends.
The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Indian Prairie Baptist church, conducted by Rev. Wm. E. Russell, pastor of the Carlisle Methodist church, and body was laid to rest in the Indian Prairie Cemetery.
