Jan. 27, 1915 Covington Pemiscot County
Parents:
James Cowell (1822 - 1901)

Died of pneumonia at his home in Covington township, January 26, 1915, S.E. Cowell, aged 57 years. He was buried the following day in the Green Cemetery, after services by Rev. A. N. Burris of Deering.

Mr. Cowell was born in Benton County, Tennessee, Sepember 11, 1856, coming to this county sixteen years ago. He was married August 4, 1880, to Miss Delia Fowler, to which union were born nine children, six girls and three boys.

He professed faith in Christ twenty-three years ago, joining the Methodist Church and served as steward in Denton.

We could say nothing better of Brother Cowell than two things: first, he loved God, and second, he loved humanity. He was always willing to do all he could for the cause of Christ, the salvation of souls and the upbuilding of the kingdom of God.

Mr. Cowell had many friends and was loved by all. He will be greatly missed at his post in the church and the community as well as at his home. He left a Christian wife and several children to mourn his loss. Prof. J.E. Palmer
