Fowler, Joseph Henry, b. 4/26/1833; During the Civil War his commercial interests were all confiscated by the Union government because he was suspected of strong Southern sympathies on account of having 3 brothers in the Southern army. But with pluck and energy he soon got another wharfboat and boat store and resumed business. At the end of that awful war two of his three brothers, Capt Dick and Major Gus - poor White gave his life for his country, came back to begin life anew and in Joe they found a true brother, indeed, who enabled them to resume the river business. Capt Fowler has been identified with river interests and steamboating for more than 40 years and has owned an interest in about 30 streamers, commanding several of them. ......etc, etc. At present he is the senior member of the firm of Fowler, Crumbaugh & Co a very extensive boat supply business, at the corner of First St and Broadway, Paducah. (Parents; Judge William "Wiley" Paul and Esther Araminta Given Fowler)

(Note: The following 3 Fowler brothers served the Confederacy as Captains of riverboats)
Fowler, Dixon Given “Dick”, b. 2/8/1830; When the South seceded Capt Dick, with his brothers, White and Gus, gave allegiance to his native land. He was made Captain in the Confederate ordinance department. Meanwhile Capt Joe Fowler, another brother, kept his interest in the river business and when Capt Dick returned at the end of the war, his brother Joe gave him the command of the Jim Fisk, then running between Paducah and Cairo. Subsequently he commanded the Idlewild until she was transferred by charter. Capt Dick then took charge of the elegant sidewheel steamer, Pat Cleburne, which took the Idlewild's place in the Paducah trade. (Parents: Judge William "Wiley" Paul and Esther Araminta Given Fowler)

Fowler, James White b. 1833; Soon civil war was declared and he allied himself to the Southern cause, serving bravely through the four years conflict. At the calamitous end, when preparing to return home, broken in health and crushed in spirits, he died suddenly in Augusta Ga, March 23, 1865 and was buried in that city. He died unmarried.

Fowler, Littleton Augustus “Gus”, b. 2/25/1838; When the Civil War began he was in command of the fast and beautiful steamer Dunbar, running in the Evansville and Cairo trade. As his sympathies were decidedly with the South, he made several trips carrying contraband goods on board. Finally he was forced to run the Dunbar up the Tenn River, when he scuttled her near Florence, Ala., to prevent her falling a prize into the hands of the Federals. He then joined the Confederate Army under General John Morgan and was with that intrepid leader in all his raids until 1862, when young Fowler was captured at Lebanon, Tenn and sent to prison at Camp Chase, Ohio, where he was confined with other Southern patriots for 6 months. Upon his release he was exchanged, when he immediately accepted the position of Major on the staff of General Loring, where he remained to the termination of hostilities, always taking active part in all the battles Loring's command participated in. After the surrender General Loring went to Egypt to take command of the khedive's army when he offered Major Fowler a place of prominence if he would accompany him to that distant field; but the young man felt constrained to decline the flattering inducement, deeming it his duty to return home and endeavor to retrieve family fortunes lost by war.
