Aged Barmer(sic) Found Dead
Body Of Ringwood Man Exposed Four Days
Expired While Chopping Wood and Was Discovered by Little Boy Days After

The Ringwood Leaders says:
John W. WEST, an aged farmer, living about five miles northwest of this place was found dead on his place Monday afternoon about three o'clock by his little grandson who happened to go to the place on an errand. It appears that he had been chopping wood, and from the position of his body when found, he had evidently expired and fallen over backward. The body had lain in the position in which it was found from some time the Thursday before, as it was a well know fact that he was always very prompt in taking his mail from the rural delivery mail box and the mail for that date had not been disturbed. The clothing of the dead man was wet and frozen showing that he had lain out during the recent rains. It is understood that no inquest was held.  It is supposed that death resulted from natural causes.
The dead man was an old soldier and a Grand Army man.

Mrs. Wiley COWAN Sarah Amanda DAY was born at Tilford, Kentucky, on January 18, 1866, and departed this life at Alva,Okla., on February 24, 1924. She was married to Wiley COWAN at Harper, Kansas, December 22, 1882.
Leaving Kentucky with her parents, she emigrated to Kansas, where she grew up, ever a true westerner. She came as a bride to the Old Eagle Chief Ranch Headquarters, at Short Springs (10 miles east of Alva) and has seen roving cattle, the Indians and the howling coyote give place to churches, schools and tillers of the soil. Always zealous in the cause of Christ, she never tired in establishing His work. No one can say how far her influence has or will radiate. Numbers of young men and women place tribute at her feel for the principles of right living instilled in their hears by her precept and example. As no life can be pure in its purpose and strong in its strife and not all lives be made purer and stronger thereby, so her influence will live on and on. She was always patient and mindful of others during affliction and suffering and was ever a source of inspiration to those about her. Only those who knew her best can tell of the truly wonderful life she has lived.
She is survived by her husband, a son, John COWAN of Selman, Okla. two daughters, Mrs. Hazel WIEBENER and Mrs. Opal NIGHSWONGER, both of Alva, Okla., eight grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends all of whom mourn her loss. The high esteem in which she was held was given evidence by the many beautiful floral offerings and the great number of friends from various places who gathered to attend the funeral held at M.E. Church of which she was a member. Services were conducted by Rev. Simpson, after which the body was laid to rest in the A.O.U.W. cemetery. The sorrowing relatives have the sympathy of many friends in their loss.
