It is our unpleasant duty to record the death of an old and very highly respected citizen, Abram Bowman, who died at his residence, a half mile east of Savannah, on Tuesday night last, November 17, at 11 o'clock. Mr. Bowman was fifty-eight years of age, was born in Fayette county, Kentucky, where he was married to Miss Bowman, who still survives him. He removed to this county about thirty years ago, since which time he has steadily resided here. He was a member of the Savannah Lodge No. 71, A. F. and A. M., and also of Savannah Grange No. 330. Two brothers survive him, Judge Andrew Bowman and William Bowman. The father of the deceased is still alive in Kentucky. Six children-- Maria, Emma, Fannie, George, Abram and Gist-- are left to mourn the loss of a kind, generous and indulgent father. Deceased was buried according to Masonic rites by the members of his own lodge, and, although yesterday morning was extremely stormy and unpleasant, a large number of friends followed his remains to their last resting places in Savannah Cemetery.
