OBITUARY FOR G. S. BARLOW (1848 - 1923)

Death early Tuesday morning took from our midst the life of George S. Barlow, a highly respected citizen of this community (Owen, Clark County). Early the evening before he was taken suddenly ill with an attack of acute indigestion, from which he never recovered.

Mr. Barlow, with his wife, came to Owen about five years ago from Greenwood, and since that time has been employed as station agent for the Fairchild and Northeastern Railway. He was a railroad man of many years experience, having served the old Wisconsin Central and Soo Line Railways long enough to be on the pension list.

He was born Nov. 27, 1848 at Delevan, Wis., and on Sept. 10, 1885 was married, and to this union one daughter was born, Mrs. A. N. Simon, of Alma, Wis. He leaves to mourn his departure, his wife, one daughter, a brother and sister and five grandchildren.

Wednesday evening at 9:30 o'clock funeral services were held at the home, Rev. F. W. Sherman, vicar of St. Katharine's Church officiating and being assisted by the Masonic Lodge of this place, of which he was a member. Following the services his body was taken to the Soo Line Station, where it was put aboard the limited train and taken to the place of his birth, Delavan, for burial. 

The bereaved wife and daughter, Mrs. A. N. Simon have the heartfelt sympathy of a great many friends in the loss of their husband and father (Owen Enterprise)
