Capt. B. F. Bowman received a dispatch Saturday morning announcing the death of his brother, Albert Bowman, at Los Angeles, Cal., from a heart trouble that had been the cause of his feeble health during the last year. The deceased was born in Royalton, Jan. 20, 1828. He enlisted for the Civil war Sept. 14, 1864, in Company E, 8th Vermont regiment, and was discharged June 1, 1865, at the close of the conflict. He was a carpenter by trade and lived in this village for a period, in which he was employed at the wood-working mill of C. E. Abbott. He had been West some 30 years and for five years had been located in Los Angeles. He left a wife, who was Caroline Bowman of Barnard of a different family than her husband -; a son, Bert L., of Denver, Col.; two brothers, George W., of Los Angeles, at whose home he died Friday noon, and Capt. R. F. Bowman of Randolph; two sisters, Mrs. Lizzie E. Stillman of Jefferson, Ia., and Mrs. Susan A. Rollins of Washington, D. C. Burial was in Los Angeles. The dispatch came from Captain Bowman's son, Bateman, who has a position with the Santa Fe railroad at Los Angeles.
