Carole, Thank you for donating so much of your time to help all of us remember those that have passed on. So many people benefit from all your work.

For David L. Cowden you have provided a beautiful, very long obituary. What a family! He was a health commissioner; his brothers were doctors and a lawyer; his sister a missionary. When I first read the obituary I noticed it mentioned "Four children survive" but then listed just two, so I got a copy from the library in Cambridge and had my husband (poor man) read it to me. I am so, so thankful that I did not have to type the whole thing. I did make those additions to the names of his family and a few other changes in punctuation, spelling. If you want to replace the existing obituary, here is the corrected one:
Cowden, David Laughlin Cowden
Source: The Cambridge [Ohio] Daily Jeffersonian; 6 Dec 1940
Dr. David Laughlin Cowden, 73 , Guernsey county health commissioner, prominent physician, beloved citizen and member at the Cambridge Band, passed away Friday afternoon at 12:50 o'clock at his home, No. 144 South Ninth street, where he had been ill the past six weeks.
The death of Dr. Cowden was a shock to his legion of friends in Guernsey county. By his passing this community has lost a public spirited citizen, one active in many channels of endeavor and one who lived a useful life until the end.
Six weeks ago Dr. Cowden suffered an attack of angina pectoris, which kept him bedfast until several days ago. Last Monday evening he suffered a stroke since which time life had been despaired of. He suffered a second stroke Thursday and the end carne peacefully Friday with members ot his family present.
David Laughlin Cowden was born Aug. 8, 1867 at Quaker City, son of William Newell and Deborah Laughlin Cowden. He spent the early part of his life in that community and graduated from Quaker City high school. He graduated in 1892 from Starling Medical College, Columbus, with the highest honors of his class.
On Sept. 1, 1891, he was united in marriage to Miss Cora Spencer and to this union five children were born. William Newell Cowden died in infancy. His wife preceded him in death In 1924. Four children survive, Paul S. Cowden, Cambridge, Russell L. Cowden, Cleveland, Harry L. Cowden, Warren, and Mary N. Cowden of the home.
He was the oldest of a family of seven children. Two brothers and three sisters survive, as follows: Dr. N. W. Cowden, of Dayton, Dr. H . S. Cowden, of Columbus, Mrs. T . E . Henderson, of New Concord, Miss Henrietta Cowden, missionary to India, and Mrs. Lillian Stewart, of Quaker City. Eight grandchildren also survive. A brother, Atty. W. K. Cowden, died a month ago at his home in Huntington, W. Va.
Dr. Cowden practiced his profession four years in Columbus, specializing with Dr. Wright. He practiced at Old Washington and Kimbolton before coming to Cambridge in 1920 when he was appointed health commissioner. He is the only man to serve this county as health commissioner, receiving the appointment after the law became effective and serving continuously until his death. He was a prominent member of the Guernsey County Medical Society and served that organization many years as secretary. For the past 40 years Dr. Cowden had been an active member of the Cambridge Band. He was a talented clarinetist and was a composer of music of ability. His compositions were varied, but he was most interested in marches and religious numbers. He was a faithful member of the band and several years ago composed "The Cambridge Band" march, which was dedicated to the local musical unit and published widely. This number was frequently played by the band at its open air concerts. He was a lover of all finer things of life, devoted to his family, kindly and a true friend. He never neglected an opportunity to be of service to others and his charitable work was exceedingly extensive in Guernsey county. In his practice of medicine he never permitted those in need to be neglected for medical attention.
Dr. Cowden was a lifelong member of the U. P. church and had served that denomination for 46 years as an elder. At the time of his death he was an active meber [sic--member] of the Second U. P. church in this city. He was a reader and student of the Bible. His knowledge of the International language was broad and several years ago he was awarded a trip to Scotland by the Esperanto International Language Society for outstanding work. He also studied astronomy extensively.
He was secretary of the county medical society at the time of his death and took a keen interest in the organization.
The body was removed to the Bundy Funeral Home and will be returned to the family home before noon Saturday, where it will remain until time for the funeral services, which will be held Monday morning at 10 o'clock at the Second U. P. church in charge of his pastor, Rev. L. M. Miller. Interment will be made in Friends cemetery at Quaker City.

Sarah Farrell 126621805
Hello, I see you left virtual flowers for Sarah Farrell. Are you related and if so do you know what her maiden name was? I am looking for a Sarah (Lane), Dennett, Griffith who may have married yet again and since she has McMahon's and Lanes and Dittamores in her lines thought maybe this could be the right person. What if anything do you know? Thanks pc

David Wright
Hello Carole. Thank you for the work that you do on recording info from high hill cemetery, much appreciated. I have been doing a lot of research on my GGG Grandfather David Wright. I believe he is buried in this cemetery. I have an obituary that says he was buried in Waller's cemetery, which I believe is also known as High hill cemetery. I located a map of this cemetery on the Guernsey county map department web page that shows the location of Davids grave as 5 spots from David Todd. Is there possibly a headstone that is unreadable in that location? I believe he was born in 1846 and died in 1893. Thanks again for your help.

Thank you so very much for your compassion in taking the time to enter this family, and for your consideration in trasferring them into loving hands. I'm anxious to sit down with my mother and write a bio for Elsie, for she was a woman before her time! She was a daredevil pilot!
