Burnet Bulletin, 5 Dec 1907

The subject of this sketch died at the home of his son, H.M. Ramsower, in Burnet, Texas, November 27th 1970, after an extended sickness, principally due to his advanced age, he having passed the 85th mile post.

The body was interred in the Odd Fellows' cemetery, the funeral being conducted by the Masonic order, of which deceased was an honored member.

Edward Ramsower was born in the State of Indiana on the 18th day of August 1822, and there grew to manhood. He came to Texas in 1840, but returned to Missouri, and then moved to Arkansas, where in 1852 he was united in marriage to Miss Polly Anthony, with whom he lived happily for thirty-five years and reared a family of twelve children, eight of whom are living, as follows: George and Harvy, who reside in this community; Marion at San Marcus; Mrs. Small, at Dallas; Mrs. Anthony, at Cross Cut; Mrs. Stevebaugh; Mrs. Davenport, Willow City; Mrs. Rogers, Cedar Mills.

Mr. Ramsower joined the Masonic order in Grayson County, Texas in the year 18609.

He was a believer in the Christian religion and during his residence of a number of years in Burnet made many friends.

The Bulletin joins these in extending condolence to the bereaved relatives.
