The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, March 11, 1909

Chillicothe -- Friday, February 19, 1909, at her home, MRS. JAMES COTTRELL
fell asleep in Jesus, after an illness of a few weeks.

NANCY RACHEL BOWEN was born in Clay County, Mo., April 26, 1837. She was the daughter of NATHANIEL and CAROLINE BOWEN, and moved with her parents to Wapello County, Iowa, when quite young. She was united in marriage to JAMES COTTRELL, November 22, 1855. To this union twelve children were born, six of whom preceded her to the better land in infancy. Those left to mourn their loss are a husband and six children: MRS. SAMANTHA CRABLE of Ottumwa; MRS. MAHALA ABERNATHY of Chariton; B.E. COTTRELL of Avery; FRANK COTTRELL of Hynes; W.E. COTTRELL of Ottumwa, and D.T. COTTRELL of Chillicothe. She also leaves two sisters and one brother, MERIBEE DILL of Cherokee county, Kansas;
MELISSA TRAVES of Clio, Ia., and D.F. BOWEN of Ottumwa.

In 1875 she united with the Christian Church, remaining a faithful member
until death. A loving and affectionate wife, mother, sister and friend has
gone to that better land and is waiting for her loved ones.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J.E. Ward at the M.E. Church in
Chillicothe at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
