Obit: George F. Fowler, elder son of Mr. Andro F. and Ida M. (Suiter) Fowler was born near Pittsburg, Mo., Oct. 27, 1898 and died at his home near his birthplace, aged 29 years and 29 days. He was married to Aubrey C. Thurman Jan. 28, 1917. To this union were born three children, William Frank, age 9; Willa Fae, age 4; George Jr. age 22 months. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, children, father, mother, five sisters, Rachall Taylor, of Amoret, Mo.; Callie Bowen and Esther Skidmore, of Flemington, Mo.; Alma Vaughn, of Hermitage, Mo.; Mable Fisher, of Pittsburg, Mo.; and one brother, Andro N. Fowler, of Pittsburg, Mo.; one sister, Lydia Vaughn, preceded him in death Nov. 11, 1919. He was a kind and loving husband and father and his friends were numbered by those that knew him. His motto seemed to be, "Service to Others,' and however busy he was always ready to lend a helping hand to his fellowman. He professed faith in Christ in the fall of 1916 in a meeting held by Rev. Joe Babb and united with the Christian church at Antioch. He lived a faithful christian up until his death. His death came as a sad ending to an accidental discharge from his shotgun while hunting. All that skilled surgery and loving hands could do proved of no avail and after lingering for seven days he passed into the great beyond. The night before the end he said to his brother, who was standing by his bedside, "there they come. I see the light, sing and make it pretty." At last the death angel came, the silver cords were loosed and he entered the haven of rest prepared for the children of God. His funeral was preached Oct. 26, 1927, to the relatives and a very large congregation of sorrowful friends by his pastor, Rev. Manville Caldwell, after which the body was laid to rest in the Antioch cemetery, there to await the morning of the resurrection..... (Note the funeral and interment were on Nov. 26, not Oct. 26)

Fowler and wife, was a married man and wife and three small children survive. Funeral services were held at Antioch church burial grounds at 11 o'clock last Saturday. An obituary notice will likely be prepared and published soon.

George Fowler Accidentally Shot
George Fowler, a son of Andro Fowler, residing west of Pittsburg with his family, accidentally by his own hand received a very dangerous shot gun wound while hunting near his home last Thursday. The young man it is said had been assisting his wife at the home in the morning about some washing or houshold duties and afterward said he believed he would go hunting a little while and getting his shot gun got into his truck and drove a short distance down the road from his home and got out and was not far away when, as the story comes to us must have been in the act of shooting a rabbit and while standing on a stump dropped his gun down by his side and in doing so the same discharged striking him low down in the right side, ranging upward and the load tearing its way through flesh and into the inside entering intestines and liver. Just immediately after the shooting the young man holding his wound with both hands made his way toward the road and very soon Ed Floyd and a son and Otho Green happened to come and at once took him to his home. We learn Drs. Stufflebam and Hohn, Humansville, and A. S. Johnston, Wheatland, were attending physicians and took care of the injured man. These are anxious days with the family, relatives and friends for his recovery but at this time he is in a very dangerous condition.
