Maud Esther Bowlus was born October 8th, 1877 and died of the dread disease, consumption, at 12:05 Sunday morning, February 18th, 1895, aged 17 years, 4 months and 10 days. She was the eldest daughter of Reverdy I. Bowlus and was the pride of the family. Maud was well known and loved by all who knew her. Several months ago Maud took a severe cold, which resulted in the hasty consumption. Maud was a bright girl at school and had a good education. She was not a member of any church, but lived the life of a Christian. The funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon by Rev. Myers of Williamsport, who delivered a short but good sermon at the family residence, southwest of Williamsport, after which the remains were laid to rest in the West Lebanon Cemetery. The pallbearers were: Leonard Yaste, Lester Swisher, Austin Taylor, George Meder, Frank Pugh and Amos Beach. Maud is the third child, which the family has lost. She leaves a father, mother, brother, sister and a host of friends to mourn her loss. Mrs. Carrie Fleming, nee Schoonover, wife of the late Ting Fleming, died at her home in West Lebanon Sunday evening of consumption. Something over a year ago husband died, and a fw months later, the little one which had come after its father's death to brighten the fond wife's sad life, was called to join the father and await the coming of the mother who was so soon to follow. The broken bonds of love affection have been reunited. The funeral services were held from the family residence in West Lebanon Tuesday afternoon and the remains were laid to rest beside those of the dear ones entered in at the West Lebanon Cemetery.
