NEW!) Cowger, William T. - The grim monster death, which has made so many sad and desolate homes within the past six months, has again torn from the embrace of another home a near and dear love done. But what a blessed, comforting and consoling thought to know that he today is at rest. At about 10:30 a. m. Friday, the death messenger called upon Wm. T. Cowger to leave this world and go to that country from whence no traveler has ever yet returned.
Father Cowger was born in Rush Co., Ind., April 28, 1837; came to this state in 1853; and since that time has formed the acquaintance of many people. No doubt but that Bro. Cowger accepted the words of our blessed Savior in that noted memorial sermon on the Mount when he said,
"Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and His righteousness and all things necessary to life will be added", for while but a mere boy he embraced the religion of our Lord and Savior, and throughout his life he endeavored to live a consistent christian life. His patient, long suffering Christ-like spirit in his last hours show beyond doubt that his endeavor to be a christian had not been in vain. He has left the happy assurance of a blessed immortality.
Those who knew him found him to be a good and obliging neighbor, a compassionate husband, and a kind and affectionate father. In his dying hours he leaned upon the strong arm of the Redeemer to sustain him; he leaves a wife, three children and many friends to mourn his loss. Wm. I. Vanatta (Newton Press, 5 April 1899, p.4, col. 3)

Cummins, John F. was born in Crooked Creek Township on March 11, 1840, and passed away on July 28, 1911, aged 71 years, 4 months, and 17 days. His father, John Cummins, came to this county in 1838. John F. Cummins was reared in the vicinity of Rose Hill, Illinois, and attended his first school at what was known as the Chrisman School. Only a few are left who will remember this old schoolhouse. We believe William Kilgore is the only teacher of this school now living. The subject of this obituary attended school in the winter when a youth and helped to break the wild prairie in the summer, often driving four yoke of oxen. At the age of twenty, he went to Coles County to farm, and in August 1862 enlisted in Co. E., 97th Illinois Volunteers. After a short service he was discharged from the hospital at Memphis, Tennessee. In August 1863, he was married to Henrietta Fawcett, who bore him seven children, of whom four are yet living--Mary A. Ambrose of Casey, Emory V., C.R., and F.N., all living near the home. Deceased was a member of the U.B. Church at Plainfield, joining in early life. He was a trustee when the house of worship was erected. His funeral was preached by Rev. Pearce of Marshall at the Plainfield Church, and his body was borne by comrades of the Grand Army to the cemetery adjoining. A few of his company were present. One by one the ranks are broken, one by one the death bugle sounds, one by one they are carried to their last resting place, and while laid beneath the cold clay, we must remember that the grave covers every defect, every error, every misstep, and while casting our last look upon the casket, we must not forget that man, while here on earth, has never reached perfection. It is human to err, divine to forgive, and no one has lived but what has done more or less good. We must not live to ourselves, we must remember that we are all living in the flesh and the flesh is sin, but there is a feeling lurking within that guides and directs our every step if we so desire to follow.
While the stars and stripes floated in the breeze, it spoke and showed that the deceased had been loyal to his country. As the flag was carried in advance, it showed the younger people that the deceased had, in days past, followed the same. [Submitted by Avice]
