      Bowman.-Joseph C. Bowman, oldest son of Elias and Polly (Clemens) Bowman, was born in Waterloo Co.., Ontario, Jan, 12, 1830, and was married to Anna Bowman, May 14, 1850. She died Nov. 29, 1850, and Oct. 5, 1852, he was married to Lydia Wismer of Waterloo Co.., Ont. They moved to Kent Co., Mich., in 1865, where they have since resided. At that time Grand Rapids was little more than a trading post, and the surrounding country an almost unbroken forest. He died at his home, about 3 1/2 miles west of Caledonia, on the 16th of June 1905, after suffering for a few days of paralysis; aged 75 Y., 5 M., 4 D. He leaves his wife, one son, two daughters, also a number of grandchildren, beside three brothers and four sisters and a host of friends. He was the oldest of fourteen children and the seventh to pass away. He was widely known and highly esteemed for his excellent qualities as a Christian and his end was peace. Until his eyesight failed, a few years ago, he was a regular reader of the Herald. Interment on the 19th in the cemetery adjoining the Gaines U. B. church. Funeral services by Bish. H. T. Barnaby from Heb. 9:27, assisted by Alvin Barnaby. We mourn not as do those who have no hope, but because there has passed from our circle one whom we loved, one whose life wielded an influence for good, and at whose home all were made welcome. May God bless and comfort the bereaved widow and family in this affliction. A. B. K.
