Elkhart Daily Review, September 10, 1906, page 5

William M. McDowell who resided four miles south of the city on the Prarie Street Road, died at 2:30 a.m. Sunday of pneumonia after a brief illness. Mr. McDowell was born in Miami County, Ohio, October 10, 1824, and came to Concord Township, Elkhart County, in 1848, and settled on and cleared the farm where he died. He is survived by the following children: Mrs. Lucy Kauffman, widow of Samuel Kauffman; Mrs. Alvira Stone, widow of Benjamin Stone; Mrs. William (Emma) Neu, and George and John McDowell. A son, Oliver died in Duluth, Minn. twelve years ago leaving a widow and three children. The deceased was universally respected and admired for his sterling qualities, his word being as good as his bond. He was of a happy, cheerful disposition, seeing the sunny side of life, and imparted cheer and comfort to many who were despondent. He lived for a number of years on South Main Street, where he has considerable property, but a few years ago moved back to his farm, desiring to spend the evening of life surrounded by scenes familiar to his early manhood. Funeral services will be held Tuesday, friends to meet at the home at 1 p.m. and proceed to the Evangelical church, this city, where the sermon will be preached at 2 p.m. by Rev. Kreider.
