AMY THOMPSON COWAN.

Amy A. Thompson was born near Lebanon, December 14, 1829, being one in a large family of whom seven grew to maturity, and three of whom yet remain with us.

She was married December 24, 1856 to David R. Cowan, who preceeded her to the better world almost twenty three years. Their two children, Ida M., who has most tenderly cared for her mother all her later years, and Harry E. with his wife and their children mourn the loss of the best of mothers, and a most patient and loving grandmother.

She passed to her reward May 17, 1910, being aged 80 year, five months and three days – full of years and with the honor and esteem of all who have been influenced by her life.

The deceased possessed in a remarkable degree the beautiful and helpful grace of patience. It was specially manifest in her treatment of children. During her last illness she was as patient as when in the full enjoyment of perfect health. Not a single complaining or impatient word escaped her lips. She has gone from us, but with a preparation for the sinless and joyous life of heaven which means gain, not loss.

  DAVID R. COWAN.
Sunday morning David R. Cowan, one of the most respected citizens of the county, died at his home, west of Lebanon, after an illness of some weeks, which was more the result of his advanced age than anything else. He was born in this township on the sixteenth day of January, 1829, being, therefore, in his fifty-ninth year. His parents were Charles and Jane (McPherson) Cowan. His grandfather moved to Turtlecreek township in 1800 and the family have always lived near where he settled. Mr. Cowan, born on a farm, grew to manhood as a farmer. He was a quiet man and sought and held no offices. He was universally known as an upright, honest citizen and his death is mourned by a wide circle of friends. In 1856 he married Amy A. Thompson, who survives him, together with a son and daughter. The funeral services were held at the residence on Tuesday morning. Rev. Dr. J. P. Scott officiating.

  DAVID R. COWAN
A prominent and wealthy farmer of Lebanon, died at his home on Sunday last, after a short but painful illness, in the 59th year of his age. His parents were Charles Cowan, a native of Virginia, and Jane W. (McPherson) Cowan, of Kentucky. His grand-father, James Cowan, was a native of Berkley county, Va., who emigrated to Ohio in 1800, and settled on the east half of section 17, two miles west of Lebanon, were he died in 1815. On this farm David R. Cowan was born, and has steadily lived from cradle to grave. He has been very successful in the management of his farm, and leaves behind him an abundance of worldly goods and a large number of friends. He was married in 1856 to Miss May A., daughter of John H. Thompson of this county. In politics he was a Republican, and stood high among men of all creeds and all parties. His funeral took place from the family residence on Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock, Rev. J. P. Scott, of the Presbyterian church, officiating, a large number of people from Lebanon and the country side being present to pay tribute to their well loved friend and neighbor.
