W. H. OWENS - Obituary

W. H. Owens
The East Liverpool Tribune

W. H. Owens, aged about 65 years, died early Monday morning (Mar. 12, 1906) at the state hospital in Massillon, of which he had been an inmate for several months past. He is survived by a wife and several children who reside at Clarkson.

The deceased was a member of Co. C, 104 O. V. I. and served for three years in the war of the Rebellion, in an engagement in North Carolina he was struck on the head by a falling timber and severely wounded. The wound gave him much trouble ever afterward, and is thought to have been the cause of his mental breakdown.

The funeral will be held at the Presbyterian church in Clarkson, of which he was a member, Wednesday afternoon at 1o’clock. The services will be conducted by the Rev. Dr. J. C. Taggart, who was a comrade of Mr. Owens in Company C. throughout the war
