1906
September 20,p.2:Mrs. A.E. (Cassie McLean) Rowan - It is with unfeigned sorrow that we record the death of Mrs. A.E. Rowan (nee Cassie McLeau, of Alton) which occurred at her home in Thompson, N.D., on Thursday last. The deceased lady was ill only a short time, her death resulting from a severe attack of pneumonia. Less than seven months ago she left her home her a happy bride, with what seemed a bright and useful future in store for herself and her husband. To-day the home about which the hopes and aspirations of yesterday centered is bereft of its young and gracious mistress and the heart of a devoted husband is crushed by the awful bereavement that has so suddenly overtaken him. During her short residence in Thompson, Mrs. Rowan had, by reason of her graciousness and charming social qualities, won for herself many devoted friends and it is quite within the mark to say that her untimely death is as sincerely mourned there as in the home of her girlhood. The remains were brought to her old home for interment, being accompanied during the long journey by the grief stricken husband and his brother Dr. S. Rowan, of Hillsboro, N.D. The funeral was held from the home of Mr. Rowan's brother-in-law, Mr. Richard Thomas, Alton, to Greenwood cemetery, Orangeville, on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. A.R. Schrag, of Alton, conducting services at the house and grave. There was a large gathering of former friends at the house and a lengthy cortege followed the remains to their last resting place. The floral tributes were beautiful and literally covered the casket. The pall-bearers were Mr. Rowan's six brothers, John and Thomas, Orangeville, William, Andrew and Robert, Erin and Dr. Samuel Rowan, Hillsboro, N.D.
