Bowen, Edward (Home Burns - 12 MAY 1912)
The home and farm residence of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bowen, who reside on the old Sawyer Austin farm near Longwood (Clark Co., Wis.), burned Sunday afternoon. Only a few pieces of furniture and some small articles were saved. About 300 bushels of potatoes were in the cellar and all of last year's wool in the storehouse was burned. The origin of the first is not learned. It was discovered at meal time when the family was eating their dinner. Mr. Bowen was severely burned about the head and hands.
A small amount of insurance was carried on the building.
