THE WESTERN STAR, 10 March 1894
Obituary of ETTA BOWMAN

Mrs. Frank Bowman, nee Miss Etta Freeman, aged 19, died at her home in Albion, Harper county, Thursday, March 1st, 1894, after an illness of two weeks, Her affliction was puerperal septicemia or blood poisoning.

With profound sorrow was the sad news conveyed to relatives and numerous friends of the deceased in this county. Not quite a year ago we chronicled her marriage with Frank Bowman, and so soon to see a home bereft of its crowning glory falls with double sadness. Her father, Mr. George Freeman of this county, was present at the time of her demise.
She was buried in the cemetery at Danville, Harper county, the remains being followed to their resting place by a vast procession.

The deceased leaves a baby boy about two weeks old and loving husband, parents, sisters and friends to mourn her loss. As soon as Mr. Freeman and family are domiciled in their new home in the Strip, the motherless
babe will find a home with them.

The sympathy of all goes out to the grief stricken husband.
