The monster, Death, has been doing his work for some time on the physical man and brought the work to a close on the morning of the 19th inst. Marshall Hall, a well known young man of Warren County, died at the St. Elizabeth Hospital at Lafayette. Funeral services conducted by Rev. Charles Lacker were held at the M. E. Church at 1 p.m. and the body was then taken by kind friends and laid away to rest in the West Lebanon Cemetery to await the resurrection morn. John H. Gunn is dead. He died at 8 p.m. 24th inst. Funeral is Tuesday, 26th, at 10:30 a.m. Mrs. Mary Catharine Rowen nee Veceant was born in Madison County in the state of Ohio, Dec. 29th, 1830. She was married to James B. Rowen Oct. 22nd, 1848, and moved with him to Indiana in March 1853, locating in Pine Village, Warren County, where they had continued to live, with the exception of three or four intervals of a few months at a time. She ws afflicted for the past four years with a cancer of the eye. She went with her husband to Chicago about 18 months ago where she underwent a surgical operation and for a short time had hopes that she was cured. She yielded up her life on the morning of December 14 at 8 o'clock. She was the mother of 9 children, three sons and six daughters, two of the daughters having gone before. An aged and afflicted husband, three sons and four daughters mourn the loss of a wife and mother. Mother Rowen gave her heart to God about fourteen years ago, and was made happy in a Savior's love. She was a true wife through prosperity and adversity as well- a woman of great industry , a loving mother and kind neighbour. She bore her afflictions with great patience to the end. Her hand has ceased ints vibrations and the heart is now still. The bowed position is changed and the peaceful face is turned upward to its God. The plaintive voice no more makes known its wants-all is silent now. There were short funeral services held at the family residence on Dec.15th at 3 o'clock p.m., after which the remains were laid to rest. The family extends their grateful thanks to the friends and neighbors for their kindness in this hour of sorrow.
