bullet Winfield Scott BOWMAN Photo  died in 1937. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project. (2)

Ever a faithful servant of his Maker and practically his entire life devoted to Christian work, Rev. W. Scott Bowman, D. D., aged 76, went to a great reward at 4:15 Friday morning in Uniontown hospital.
The grim reaper took a shining mark, leaving only memories of the great deeds accomplished by so great a man.
It was while he was engaged in the ministration of the Gospel at Nemacolin last Sunday that he contracted a cold.  Pneumonia developed and his condition became so critical that Wednesday morning he was taken to the Uniontown hospital.
Oxygen and other known methods for treatment were of no avail and one of the most beloved ministers in Pennsylvania early Friday heard the call - "Well done thou good and Faithful servant."
Grief over the death of Dr. Bowman quickly spread over the city, county and state.  The call to a better world left a vacancy which never can be filled.
Dr. Bowman was born August 10, 1861, in Lsippus, Westmoreland county.  His boyhood days were spent in Irwin where he secured his early education. Taught Christian principles from his babyhood, Dr. Bowman early in life was included to the ministry.  He graduated from Wooster college, and the Western Theological Seminary and then began a most brilliant career marked by service to the One above.  His untiring efforts for Christ created a brilliance of Stars in his Crown.
Dr. Bowman came to Uniontown in 1907 from Brownsville.  Until 1934 he endeared himself to many thousands who attended the Second Presbyterian church.
It was in that year that he became superintendent of the Redstone Presbytery, in which exalted position he faithfully continued the Christian work until the time of his last illness.
Seven years ago Dr. Bowman was moderator of the Presbyterian Synod of Pennsylvania.
He took great pleasure and satisfaction in filling in various pulpits and spreading the Gospel.
Two sons of Dr. Bowman, Dr. John Bowman of Pittsburgh and Dr. Karl Bowman, of near Harrisburg, who followed in the footsteps of their venerable father, survive.  They had made many sacrifices to carry the word of the Lord into far-off India.  
Two brothers, Rev. Edwin M. Bowman of Brownsville, and John, of Cresson, and the following sisters also survive:  Miss Laura Bowman, Mrs. Gertrude Bowman Withrow and Mrs. Agnes Fink, all of Irwin.
Dr. Bowman's body will lie in state at Johnston's mortuary chapel until Sunday morning when it will be removed to the Bowman home in 22 West Fayette street.  Funeral services with Rev. James C. Clark, officiating are set for 2 p.m. Monday in the Second Presbyterian church.  Interment in Sylvan Heights cemetery.

_______________________
Dr. W. Scott Bowman
Dr. Winfield Scott Bowman devoted a long, active and fruitful life to the Ministry.  He lived what he preached. He followed wisely and well in the footsteps of the one great Teacher and Preacher and Minister.  He has left the rich heritage of Christian living and Christian Service.  And this Service, his philosophy of life and living, has dedicated two sons who, like their father, are devoting their lives to the same Christian Service; a ministry in their home lands and a missionary service in foreign lands.
Dr. Bowman passes on.  He lays aside the mantle of mortality for the robes of immortality.  A good and faithful servant has passed on to the Great Reward.

Susan C. BOWSER ( -1914)

FIVE FAMILIES MADE HOMELESS
BY FIRE; TWO ARE DEAD AND A
THIRD MAY DIE FROM BURNS
Matthew Hayes Only One of His Family to Escape Injury.

BLAZE CAUSED BY OIL STOVE
Explodes While Mrs. Hayes is Preparing Breakfast
and Flames Trap Aged Woman and Child in Upper Floor;
Mother May Not Recover.

   Two persons were burned to death, two were injured, one of whom will likely die, and five houses totally destroyed in a fire which swept Indian Creek early this morning. Five families were made homeless. The fire was caused by the explosion of an oil stove in the home of Matthew Hayes which stood in the middle of a row of houses owned by the McFarland Lumber Company.

THE DEAD.

MRS. SUSAN C. BOWSER, 65 years old, mother of Mrs. Matthew Hayes.
MADELINE HAYES, 5 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Hayes.

THE INJURED.

MRS. SEVILLA HAYES, 22 years old, badly burned about face and body; condition critical.
MABEL HAYES, 3 years old; painfully burned, but will recover.

   All of the injured persons were taken to the Cottage State Hospital, the Duquesne Limited being stopped for that purpose at Indian Creek.

   The fire originated in the Hayes home shortly after 5 o'clock. An oil stove which neighbors say had not been working properly for several days past exploded as Mrs. Hayes was making breakfast. In an effort to extinguish the flames, Mr. Hayes threw a bucket of water on the stove which started the fire and caused it to spread rapidly. Mr. and Mrs. Hayes and their little daughter Mabel were in the kitchen at the time. This saved them from being burned to death. Mrs. Bowser, Mrs. Hayes's mother, and little Madeline were asleep upstairs. So quickly did the flames spread that it was impossible for anyone to reach the upper floors and save the two imprisoned persons. Mrs. Bowser is believed to have been rendered helpless from fright. She was seen at the bathroom window vainly endeavoring to raise it and escape. Little Madeline was also seen at a window before flames enveloped the whole house. The last person to see Mrs. Bowser alive was Mrs. Charles Thorpe. She says she saw the aged woman at the window and later she was seen struggling on the bed. For a time the entire town of Indian Creek was threatened, but the arrival of the Connellsville chemical wagon reinforced the local volunteers and the flames were thus checked but not until the entire row in which the house stood was totally destroyed. All of the persons living in the row with the exception of the Hayes family saved their household goods. The families made homeless and who are now being taken care of by their neighbors were George Warrick, Charles Thorpe, Simon Burkholder and Grover Widener. All of them not only had time to escape safely and save their effects, but to aid in fighting the flames. Indian Creek is without fire protection. It was early apparent that nothing could be done to save the row of houses owned by the McFarland Lumber Company, and efforts were then centered upon preventing the flames from spreading to other properties. As it was, some damage was caused in the home of Mrs. Lena Bigam and Bruce Miller, and two vacant dwellings, but it was not of a serious nature. One engine of the Indian Creek Valley railroad was used to pump water on the flames, and helped materially in preventing the fire from spreading. Had the wind been blowing down the valley the residents say the entire town would have been wiped out.

   Stickel's store and other buildings would then have been in the path of the flames. Fortunately the stiff breeze which blew carried the fire in a direction which did not seriously threaten property. Mrs. Hayes' condition is regarded at the hospital as serious. She was severely burned about the face, arms and chest, and her chances of recovery are further complicated by the fact that she is in a delicate condition. It was stated at the hospital that Mabel Hayes, who accompanied his wife and daughter to the hospital, had also been burned, but he did not require treatment. Mrs. Bowser, it was said, was subject to fainting spells, and it is believed that she was attacked with one of these when awakened by the flames, or the warning of those on the lower floor. One day during the fireman's convention here Mrs. Bowser had a spell in the West Penn waiting room and did not recover for an hour or more. Only the bones of the two victims resisted the flames, their bodies being almost totally consumed. The entire row of frame houses was laid in ashes. All of the furniture in the Hayes home was consumed. Great praise is given the Connellsville fire departments. Chief Haddock and his men performed splendid work and that for their efforts other houses would have been destroyed.

WILSON BOYER DEAD

Prominent Resident of Mt Pleasant and Known In Connellsville

Mt Pleasant, July 9 — {Special} — Wilson Boyer one of the best known citizens of Mt Pleasant and widely known throughout the Connellsville coke region died at his home on Smithfield street, Saturday at 12 o’clock noon from an operation performed some time ago at the Mt. Pleasant Hospital. Mr. Boyer was a sufferer from cancer and the operation was performed as a last hope of saving his life. During his illness he suffered much pain but endured it with out a murmur. For 20 years Mr. Boyer was a resident of Mt. Pleasant, when three years he was located at Latrobe as Superintendent of the Pittsburg Brewing company plant there and latter he was superintendent of the Bluefield, W. Va. Brewery for two years. During most of his residence in Mt. Pleasant Mr. Boyer was engineer at the Standard shaft. He had a wide acquaintance throughout the Connellsville coke region.

Wilson Boyer was born near Wellsburg Southampton township Somerset county, in 1858. He was the son of Chauncey and Susana Boyer. He married Miss Missouri Albert of Mt. Pleasant in 1884. He started in life here and lived here more of his time until his death. The following, besides his wife, are his survivors. His father, Chauncey Boyer of Johnsburg, Somerset county, brothers Frank of Michigan, Jonathan, Joethie and Norman of Mance, Pa., Herman Boyer, Berlin, sisters, Alive Griffith of Johnstown and Lizzie Beard of Hammondville. His mother and two sisters preceded him to the spirit world. Besides the above, he leaves a host of other relatives and friends.

In his death, Mt. Pleasant loses one of its best citizens. His opportunities for obtaining an education were very limited in his day but by careful observation he had acquired quite a general knowledge. He was a man of sound judgment and good principle. He was upright in his dealing with his fellowmen. His hospitality and kindness could not but help inspire those about him with pure motives and higher attainments. It may truly be said he did life’s work well.

The funeral will be held from the Boyer residence on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock. The services will be conducted by Rev. Lawrence Keistar, pastor of the U. B. Church, assisted by Rev. Howe of the M. E. Church. Mr. Boyer was a member of the Elks, the Eagles, and the Heptasophs.

DIED

   At her residence in Uniontown, Pa., of Asthma and Disease of the Heart, Mrs. Margaret, relict of James Boyle, on the 29th of July, ’62, in the 79th year of her age. “A ripe shock removed to the garner of Heaven.” Mother Boyle joined the C. P. Church by letter from the O. S. P. Church, Jan. 26th, 1833. For nearly 30 years as an earnest, devoted and exemplary Christian, she has labored in the service of God in the ‘Union’ Congregation. Though always delicate and of late years unable to attend the service of God’s House, she enjoyed the society of Christians, and felt a deep interest in the cause of Christ in her congregation; and was not forgetful to aid her pastor by her means, her counsels, sympathies and prayers. While we join the bereaved friends in deeply mourning her absence, we must consider our loss her gain, and we are consoled by the divine benediction, “Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord.”       B.

   Fauble had only been working a few days after a lay-off of about two months during which time he had been ill. His train whivh was westbound stopped at Glencoe for orders. He signed them with the engineer and then waited as the train pulled out until the rear end of the train was near. His foot slipped as he swung aboard and at the same time he somehow missed his hold on the car, falling beneath the train. The wheels of several cars passed over his abdomen. Death was instantaneous. Fauble lived on Church place and leaves a wife and one child. Drohan was 22 years old and leaves a wife. Brady leaves a wife and three children.
