LOWDEN, MARSHALL HORACE HOWLAND
His Suffering Over

After an illness of several years, Marshall Horace H. Lowden was taken from his earthly sphere on Wednesday, August 31
st. Deceased had an attack of paralysis about eight years ago, which at first was very slight, affecting his lower extremities only. As time passed, his disease became more severe until he became unable to walk about, notwithstanding the best medical aid procurable on this coast was had. An invalid chair was now brought into requisition and with this he was enabled to wheel himself about the house, and with some assistance move around out of doors. This was enjoyed but a short time when his hands and arms became affected to such an extent that he became a helpless invalid. For the last few months, he was confined to his bed and suffered many deaths before the good Angel came to take him to his final resting place. Marshall Horace Lowden was born in Massachusetts on the 22nd day of October, 1834. He came to this county in ’52 and, until he settled on what is known as the Lowden Ranch, followed various callings. He was a representative man, true to his friends, and highly respected by all who knew him. He leaves a wife and three children and an aged mother, besides brothers and a sister and many other relatives to mourn his death. Deceased was a member of Trinity Lodge, No. 27, F&AM, Trinity Chapter, No. 19, RAM, and St. John’s Chapter, No. 14, OES. The funeral took place from the family residence on Main Street Thursday, at 3 o’clock PM, and the remains deposited in the Masonic Cemetery. [Town and Country News, Sept. 1887.
