Obituary of Joseph Chenowith, Dallas, Texas.

Joseph Chenowith, formerly of Dallas, Tex., died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. L. Thiel, at Hampton, Va., in November 1919. He had reached the age of eight-two years, and death was due to the infirmities of age. Mr. Chenowith went to Hampton from Texas to visit his daughter last August. He served with the Texas Rangers during the Indian uprising, and in the War between the States he served in the Confederate army with distinction, although he was born in Illinois. He was a member of Sterling Price Camp, No. 31, U. C. V. of Dallas, Tex. He is survived by his widow and eleven children, who are: Mrs. A. L. Thiel and Mrs. G. D. Culpeper, of Hampton; Mrs. J. H. Bennett, of New York; Mrs. H. N. Witmer, of Chicago; Mrs. W. B. Carr, of Cleveland, Ohio; Mrs. E. H. Kantz, Mrs. A. J. McCollum, W. B. Chenowith, and Howard Chenowith, of Dallas, Tex.; L. R. Chenowith of Philadelphia, Pa.
