      Obituary, The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, August 4, 1921
      Mr. Thomas Bowser
      The death of Mr. Thomas Bowser which took place at his home in Billings on Thursday, July 29, came rather sooner than was expected. Although he has been failing in health for some time he has only been confined to his bed for a few weeks and he passed away very quietly.
      The township has lost one of the early pioneers of the Manitoulin, Mr. Bowser having come to the Island forty-three years ago. He was born in Markham township in the County of York in 1838.
      The arrangements for the funeral were under the auspices of the Kagawong Orange Lodge. A public service was conducted by Rev. J. McLauchlan in Kagawong Union Church. Sympathy is extended to the relatives. He leaves one son, John of Billings and a brother Mat of Britainville.
