Philip M. Bowie, a prominent planter of the Caney valley, and native of this county, died suddenly of heart disease at his home Sunday morning last.

Mr. Bowie's only son, Hubert W., with his wife had on Saturday come to town visiting the family of their uncle Harris Bowie. Mr. Bowie entertained his clerk, Mr. LaBody, at his home that night for a while, and after the clerk left retired. Next morning the colored housekeeper went to call Mr. Bowie to breakfast, and receiving no response, opened his door and found him lying on the floor dead. It appears that he was attacked in the early morning with heart trouble, and starting to the door to call some one, fell dead just inside the door. Mr. Bowie had been in delicate health several months, but had not supposed the trouble was with his heart.

Deceased was about 57 years of age, being born on Caney, his parents coming to this county from Dallas county, Ala., in 1850. Mr. Bowie was married in 1889 to Miss Bert Welserger [Weisiger] who died at the birth of the son. Mr. Harris Bowie a brother, and son Hubert and wife, are his only survivors; another brother, George M., was one of the Capt. Rugeley company of Confederates who died in the disaster to the expedition across Matagorda Bay in defense of Matagorda, December 31, 1863, when about thirty [22] of the company perished in the vessel wrecked by the severe gale and blizzard.

The remains were interred in the old family burial ground near the home at Cedar Lane, Sunday afternoon.
