The wife died six years ago, and the following children survive him: Mrs. F. F. Treichel, of Cadiz; Mrs. Joe H. Terrell, Mr. Haywood Vowell of the Long Hollow section, and Mr. Feland Vowell, near Cadiz; Mrs. Ed Berry of Nashville; Mrs. Henry Berry, of Hopkinsville, and Mr. Perry Vowell who resides near Julien in Christian county.

Mr. Vowell was a quiet man, and lived the simple life, being with his children most of the time during his last years, but he had many friends and was held in high esteem by them all.

Burial took place Saturday afternoon at the Malone grave yard, three miles west of Cadiz where the wife and other loved ones had been buried. Short funeral services wee held at the grave and a number of friends were present.
