H. Brune Bowie
COL. H. BRUNE BOWIE DEAD
Once Had Noose About Neck As A Confederate Spy.
Col. H. Brune Bowie, a gallant Confederate soldier, died at his home, 103 West Lanvale street, Monday night of apoplexy.
His death was unexpected, as only a few minutes before the end came his wife had been conversing with him and had read aloud some of his favorite poems.
About 10 o'clock he went upstairs, leaving his wife below.  Hearing him cough, Mrs. Bowie went upstairs and noted nothing alarming in his condition.  She had been with him but a few minutes when he suddenly said:
"I feel as if I were dying.  Get a doctor, quick."
Mrs. Bowie made all possible haste to the nearest physician, Dr. J. D. Iglehart, 211 West Lanvale street, but when they returned Colonel Bowie had expired.
During the Civil War Colonel Bowie saw much action.  He was a native of Prince Georges county and was the fourth son of Walter Williams Weems Bowie and Adaline Snowden Bowie.  He was also a cousin of the late Gov. Oden Bowie.
At the age of 15 he joined Company K, First Virginia Cavalry, commanded by Capt. George R. Gaither.  This was a sharpshooting company, and was recruited chiefly from Maryland stock.
He served under Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, and received three wounds, the most serious of which was at Spottsylvania Courthouse, when he was shot through the lung.  After this he went home on a furlough suffering from his wounds, but inaction was distasteful to him and he attached himself to Mosby's command.  At one time the Federal Government offered $500 for his capture and $500 for the capture of his brother, Walter, as Confederate spies.
Young Bowie's brother died in his arms at Sandy Springs, Montgomery county, and later Colonel Bowie was captured as a spy and condemned to death.  He was reprieved only after the noose was around his neck.  He was taken as a prisoner to Fort Warren, in Boston harbor, and remained there until peace had been restored.
He then came to this city and began to engage in the lumber export business, which he continued with success until his death.
Governor Bowie appointed him colonel on the staff of General Cooper in the State militia.  He married, in 1872, Miss Florence Reese, of this city, and he is survived by one son, Mr. Carlton R. Bowie, secretary of Mr. A. Parlett Lloyd, who saw service with the Fifth Maryland Regiment in the Spanish-American War.
The funeral will take place at 10 A. M. Thursday from his home, and services will be conducted by Rev. William M. Dame.  The pallbearers will be old Confederate soldiers, and burial will be in Lorraine Cemetery.
