Death of Former Resident
News has been received of the death at his home in Barton, this state, of Patrick Rowen, a nephew of Mrs. James McKuen. Mr. Rowen was about 60 years of age and had lived in Vergennes until about 20 years old. For many years he had held a responsible position in the Massachusetts reformatory at Concord. He was a veteran of the civil war having served in a Vermont regiment throughout the struggle.
Mr. Rowen was a visitor in Vergennes last summer and will be remembered by many. He is survived by a wife and five children.
