ROW, Lawrence
Capt. Lawrence Henshaw Row, aged 43, one of the best known and most popular conductors on the C. & O., died suddenly in a ward at the C. & O. hospital yesterday morning shortly after 8 o'clock from the effects of an attack of heart failure, weakness of that organ having effected him for a period of two years but not being the cause for grave alarm until within the past few months when frequently recurring attacks created alarm in the home of the victim.
Capt. Row had been in the hospital scarcely one week when the end came. He died with scarcely any warning at all merely gasping once or twice and all was over. The shock of his death coming so suddenly and in a way, unexpectedly, almost resulted in the prostration of Mrs. Row who was preparing the children for school when the sorrowful intelligence came to her.
The body was taken to the Holswade undertaking establishment and prepared for interment after which it was removed to the home in Fifth avenue.
The decedent was one of the most valued men in the employ of the C. & O. having been a conductor on that line for fourteen years. He had been a railroad employe for twenty-one years. He came to this state from Orange county, Va., removing to Russell, Kentucky, from which place he came to this city.
Capt. Row was a brother of Dr. W. D. Row of this city. He is survived by a wife and two sons, Chester and Lawrence, both of whom are young. He has a number of brothers and sisters who reside in Cincinnati and who will arrive here this morning to remain until after the funeral.
The funeral will take place from the Fifth Avenue Baptist church, Wednesday, the Rev. M. L. Wood officiating. Interment will be made at Spring Hill cemetery. -The Herald-Dispatch, Tuesday, November 8, 1910
