Bowman Brown

Obituary of Joseph H. Bowman, Franklin, Tennessee.

Joseph H. Bowman enlisted in Company D, 32d Tennessee Infantry, at Tullahoma, in March, 1863, before he was sixteen years old. He was an ideal soldier from that date to June 22, when he was badly wounded in the right hand and arm in the battle of Powder Springs Road on the left of the Kenesaw line; and he had not recovered from the wound when he was paroled on May 17, 1865.

He was married to Miss Jennie Brown, a daughter of one of the prominent families of Williamson County. She and five sons and two daughters survive him. all of whom are honored and respected citizens.

Joe Bowman was honored and loved by all who knew him; he was a high-toned Christian gentleman, and he will be greatly missed by his Church, by his neighbors, and especially by the McEwen Bivouac and Camp at Franklin, of which he had been a member since the organization. He had acceptably filled every office, and at the time of his death was treasurer, which position he had held for many years.

May we remember his many virtues and try to emulate them.
