  • Notes 
    • William S. Cowles of Ithica, NY, should not be confused with William L. Cowles who died 23 Jan 1883 in Washington, D.C. The latter was a chief clerk for the U.S. Senate, whose death was announced in major newspapers.

      DEATH OF WM. S. COWLES

      William S. Cowles died at 2 o?clock this morning at his residence on West Green street. Mr. Cowles was born in Cortland 68 years ago and had been a resident of Ithaca fifty years at the time of his death. In former years he was engaged in the livery business on the site now occupied by Sheldon & Bliven?s establishment. Having amassed a handsome competency he retired from business in 1865. At the death of Adam S. Cowdry, several years ago, Mr. Cowles was elected president of the Mechanic?s Society, and as a mark of respect the members of the official board of that organization will attend his funeral in a body. The funeral services will be solemnized Wednesday, January 24 at 2 P.M.
