Those who remain to mourn his death are his wife, five children, six grandchildren, Richard and Robert OWEN, Alice, Herbert, Gordon and Arthur John LANGDON; his only sister, Mrs. M. E. FORBES of Woonsocket, South Dakota, and many near and dear relatives and friends.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Geo. W. HALL at the Beaconsfield church Sunday afternoon and the body was laid to rest in Rose Hill cemetery at Mount Ayr.

NOTE: Christie (FORBES), wife of Frank Reese OWEN, was born March 25, 1850, and died March 23, 1947 with interment at Rose Hill Cemetery.
