Of General George C. Bowyer, of
Winfield, W. Va.
It is with great sorrow that we
ohroniole the demise of one of the
most prominent citizens of this
part of the Kanawha Valley, Gen
eral George C Bowyer.
He was called to join
"The innumerable caravan;
whioh moves
To that mysterious realm,
Where eaoh shall take
His chamber in the silent halls
of death."
in the early morning hours of last
Day; It was six o'olook
00 the morning of February 4th,
1906, when his soul peaoefully
took its flight to the Great Beyond;
and bad be lived until the 18th
day of next March, he would have
completed his seventy-seventh
year. His illness was of short
duration, and not thought to be
fatal. The imn ediate cause of
his death was heart failure.

To fully and. completely narrate
ths man; transactions in which be
has been engaged during bis long
and eventful career would require
more space in your piper than is
allotted to the writer. Sufficient,
therefore, shall it be to mention
some of the more important events
connected with his life's history.
And, in doing this, we may men
tion en-passant that George C.
Bowyer was the eldest ohikl of
Oapt. John tijwyer, a veteran of
the war of 1812, residing at Bine
Sulphur Springe, Greenbrier 00dei
ty, Virginia, on Maroh 18th, 1829,
the date of George's birth.
John Bowyer was of German de
oent, was at one time sheriff
of Greenbrier oounty, afterwards
United States Marshall of the
Western District of Virginia, and
removed from Greenbrier to what
was then part of Kanawha (formed
into Putnam in 1849) when the
subject of this sketoh was of ten
der age. Was the owner of some
80,000 aores of loud in Putnam
and Fayette oounties, and repres
ented Putnam oounty in the Vir
ginia Legislature one term He
died in 1878 in his 85tb year, and
is still survived by bis seoond
The tld homestead, erected by
him in 1811, one mile below Win*
field, is still in a fine state of pre
servation. One of his sons, C. L.
Bowyer, resides there and it wag
here, on the 11th day of August,
1898, while Col. N. B Bowyer, of
Florida, was on a visit to bis broth
ers and sisters, all of whom were
then living, that a happy reunion
of the John Bowyer family was
held, and the birthday anniversary
of Col. N. B Bowyer was celebrat
ed. Sinoe that date three immedi
ate members of Baid family have
died, viz: L R. Bowyer, the
youngest member of the family,
Mrs. M. L Miller and George C.

ceived suoh an eduoation as the
sohools of the surrounding coontry

ed assiduously. snd L*~,idea spent
Mime time at sohool in Lewisburg
While a boy he traveled about a
great deal with bis father when
business oompelled him to do so,
and acquired sort of fondness for
roving. Shortly after arriving at
his majority be took a fancy to
make a trip to California, and did
so going alone, by the isthmus
route. After a few months he re
turned, Bnd though he kept his
health remarkably well cn the trip
when there was a great deal of aiok
ness all around him, he took the
itbmus fever a few days after
reaohing home and was ill some
eight months. Not a great while
after his recovery be married the
daughter of C. C. Miller, of Point
Pleasant, W. Va , who has bsen
dead a number of years. Ten
ohildren were the result of this
union, all of whom are now dead,
except C. C. Bowyer, Cashier and

At the outbreak of the oivil war
George G. Eowyer was Lieutenant
Colonel of militia, and afterwards
was elected by the Legislature
Brigadier General. He was a
member of the first West Virginia
Legislature in 1863, and voted for
Waitman T. Willey.of Morgantown
for U. S. Senator of there-organiz
ed government of Virginia. As a
young man of 34 years of age, it
may be of interest at this time to
his friends to know the estimation
plaoed upon him, as a legislator,
by the Wheeling Intelligencer of
?July 1863:?
"In person he is over six feet,
with good breadth of shoulders and
symmetrical figure. Features regu
lar and handsome; nose straight
and finely out: eyes blue and
bright; forehead oapaoious; com
plexion fresh ana fair, making him
look at least five years younger
than he is. The lower part of the
face and the month are oonoealed
by beard of a reddish brown, whioh
be wears fall and in great prof usion.
not having shaved it for a number
of years. Hair neither light nor
very dark, fine, silky, long and
ourling down almost upon his
shoulders. Wears a Boft Blouoh
hat and dresses well, but with a
certain air of easy negligenoe, and
has the genuine air of a man who
never worries, but takes things
philosophically. As a member
makes no more speeches than his
duties of the Committee on Roads
and Internal Navigation require.
Is an efficient member in oommit
tee and attentive in the House. Is
quiet and unobtrusive in manner
both in the House and ont of it,
but is agreeable and oordial when
approaohed. Is frank and hearty
in manner, talks well, among
friends, and will bear acquain
His friends that knew him du
ring his latter dayB will readily
recognize that his biographer in
the above oharaoter sketoh faith
fully portrayed many of the traits
of chBraoter possessed by him ae
an old man.
Mr. Bowyer was at one time
postmaster at Winfield. And in
1898 wm eleoted Commissioner of
the Cos sty Court of Putnam ooun
ty, which office he filled with
painstaking and oare for the term
of six years, beginning January 1,
18891. It waB while ho was Presi
dent of said oourt that our present
new oourt house was constructed,
and largely due to his untiring
efforts that the erection of said
building was made possible.

man whose life ha* been spent so
olosely identified with the institu

The people of the state, regard
less of party affiliations, are urging
the return of John J. Corn well to
the next legislature. Men of the
calibre of Cornwell are very hard
to find and onoe the stBte gets
suoh dim in her service, it can't,
afford- to lose them. He is looked
upon, by both Democrats and Re
pubJoeana as a power in the senate,!
and though be refuses to be a can

Twenty-two years ago last Sun
