J. L. BOWMAN PASSES AWAY
Canadian Wheat Rancher, Native of Edinburg, 
Dies in Alberta Saturday Night
Edinburg, February 1  A former local resident, James 
Luther Bowman, 52, passed away Saturday evening 
at 6:10 at his home at Carmangay, Alberta, Canada, 
where he had lived the past 25 years.
      He had been in failing health for the past several 
months and had visited here in the late fall.  His con-
dition has been critical since December, and his sister, 
Miss Elva Bowman, who teaches Latin and history in 
the Edinburg schools, was at his bedside during the 
Christmas holidays.
      Mr. Bowman was born in Edinburg, November 
18, 1890, the son of William and Ida May Drybread 
Bowman.  He spent his early manhood in Edinburg 
and also resided with the family at Madison.  He 
became a Canadian citizen a few years ago in order 
to clear the titles of his ranch where he raised wheat.
      He was preceded in death by his father and is 
survived by his mother who lives in Indianapolis, 
and two sisters, Miss Elva Bowman and Miss Mary 
Bowman, who made her home with the deceased.  
Other local survivors are an uncle, Frank Bowman 
and two cousins, Mrs. Ivory Miller and Miss Nella 
Drybread. 
      Funeral services were to have been held today at 
the late home.  Interment was to have been made 
at Carmangay.
