      ____________

      BOWMAN - On the 15th of February, 1900, at his home in St. Johns, New Brunswick, of apoplexy of which he suffered only two days, Isaac C. Bowman, formerly of Breslau, Ont., where he was born May 4th 1843, and was therefore aged 56 years, 9 months and 11 days. About 6 years ago he was affected by a stroke of apoplexy from which he never fully recovered. During the summer and fall of 1899 he was able to spend several months in the vicinity of his old home and to attend the Bowman family reunion on the 15th of June at the home of his sister and brother-in-law J.Z. Kolb, near Berlin, Ont. He also visited his brothers and sisters in Kent Co., Mich., returning to New Brunswick in December. He was very patient in his suffering, which at times during the last six years was severe. He earnestly looked forward to the time of his final release. He leaves his wife, five sons and one daughter, five brothers, four sisters and many friends to mourn his death.
