Thomas J. Prowse, a son of Thomas
and Elvina Prowse, was born in Jo
Daves county, Illinois, October 12, 1813,
and resided there until his twenty
second year when, with his parents, he
removed to Montana, and tbreo years
later located in California where ho
married Miss Sauera Springs and en
gaged in farming. His wife died In
1877, and toon thereafter he disposed
of his property interests in California
and returned to Illinois, where on
November 21, 18S8, he was united in
marriage with Mrs. Jane Adame,
a daughter of Eleazer and Diadema
FrentrefS,pioneer settlers of JoDaviess
county, aud who were amoug its most
reepeateiand wealthy residents.
The y^ar following their marriage
Mr. and, Mrs. Prowse came to thiB
county aiul engaged to farming in
llouey Creek Township, remaiuing
there until about five years ago when
they purchased a residence in this city
which haa ever since been their home
On the 12th of this moath Mr. Prowse
accompanied by his brother-in-law
William Frentress aud 11. 11. Hiintly

to spend the winter there, and thu latter
to remain permanently.
After his arrival in Virginia lie wrote
several letters to his wife and others
here, in which he stated his health was
good and that he was pleased with tho
country.
Last Saturday morning our citizens
were startled and grieved by tiia
news, brought here by a telegram from
William Frentress, that Mr. Prowse
died suddenly of heart disease, about
three o'clock that morning, at Toano
Virginia, and that his remains would
be forwarded that day to this city.
It was intended to hold tho funeral
services thia aftenoon at the
Congregational church but owing to a
flood in Tennessee and the washingout
of railway embankments, the train
carrying the remains has been delayed,

when tbe services will be held, but
probably not until next Friday.
The funeral services will be under
the auspices of the Masonic order of
this city of which the deceased was a
prominent member.
Mr. I'rowse was very popular and
held in high esteem by all who kne
him. He was a kind and ait'ectiouate

Mystery Solved.
On the second of last July, Mrs. E. J.
Nixon, aged 72 years left tbe then homo
of her daughter, Mrs. J. G. Fieisiine in
Cedar Rapids, to visit friends in Iowa
City, where she arrived the samo day
and remained until the 5lh of July
whep she started for Atlantic.
Not bearing from her after she left
Iowa City and becoming anxious about
her mother, Mrs. Fierstine wrote to At
lantic and a reply was promplly sent lo
her stating that her mother came to the
depof there, but did not call upon her
friendB as she had Intended and whither
she went from there they did not know.
Search waB at once begun but no
trace of the missing wo
."nan was discov
ered by her relatives until last Sunday
morning when Mr Fierstine, who with
his family reside here, received a post
al card from a firm of undertakers in
Marstialilown, and a newspaper con
taining an account of the finding of tbe
body of an unknown woman in the
river at Iowa City on July 12. The
postal card stated that the writers had
the clothing and otber articles of the
unknown deceased woman in their pos
session and would send them to Mr.
Fierstine by express, if he so desired, for
the purpose of ascertaining if they be
longed to Mrs. Nixon.
Last Monday the articles were re
ceived at the express otlice here and
were at once identified by Mr. and Mrs.
Fierstine as belonging to the latter's
mother, and thereby her mysterious
disappearance was in part accounted
for, but her movements after leaving
Atlantic have not yet beon accounted
for and will probably forever remain a
mystery.
