GRANDPA BOWMAN
Answers Summons of the Death
Angle and Goes to the
Great Beyond

Daniel Bowman, better known as Grandpa Bowman, died at the home of his son John F. Bowman, on Ocoee street about noon Saturday. He had a stroke of paralysis last autumn and has since been confined to his room. He had been somewhat improved, however for the past several weeks, and apparently unusually well on Saturday morning. His death was therefore somewhat unexpected. Deceased was born in Virginia on May 14, 1822 and was there for 87 years old on the 14th day of last month. He was married to Miss Hall in her native town in Virginia when quite a young man. He and his wife emigrated to Bradley County about 35years ago and this has been his home ever since. Three sons, a daughter and several grandchildren survive him. His wife’s death, it will be recalled, occurred a little over two years ago. He bequeaths considerable property to the surviving members of his family. Only one son John of this place was absent at the time of his death. The funeral was held at the residence at 3 O’clock Sunday afternoon, being conducted by Rev. S.T. Senter and Dr. Stuoblefeild. It was very largely attended.( The Journal & Banner Cleveland, TN June 22, 1909)
