Funeral of Charles COWDEN

The funeral services over the remains of Charles COWDEN, one of the cavalrymen who captured Jeff Davis near Irwinville, Ga., May 10, 1885 (sic), took place yesterday afternoon at the First Presbyterian church, corner of Spring and Fourth streets, under the auspices of Puget Sound Lodge, No. 10, Knights of Pythias, and John F. Miller Post No. 31, G. A. R. The church was crowded with people, prominent among whom were members of the lodges. It is calculated that full 250 G. A. R. men and knights were present. The casket in which the remains were encased was surrounded with flowers of all kinds. The most prominent pieces, however, were three large pillows from the members of Miller post and a large shield from the Knights of Pythias. There were also two large bouquets of beautiful lilies. The services were conducted at the church by Rev. Alexander ALISON, pastor of the church, and Rev. John F. DAMON. Each spoke feelingly concerning the dead and eulogised his character. At the grave in Lake View cemetery the services were conducted by the G. A. R. and Knights -P.I.
