R. Brooke, commanding the post, assisted by Lieutenant Wm. S. Mackay, A. A. Q.

Bowen, Thomas M.
Senator Thomas M. Bowen - The Pueblo Chieftain - December 31, 1906 - Senator Thomas M. Bowen Answers Death Summons – Formerly Took Active Part in State and National Affairs - Had Been Ill For Two Months - After an illness of two months, Senator Thomas M. Bowen, 229 West Twelfth street, passes away yesterday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at this home. Since about November 1, Mr. Bowen failed in health rapidly, and his demise came as a surprise to his wife and many friends. He was 71 years old last October, and came to Pueblo in 1892. He was interested in various mining enterprises at the time of his death, and recently organized a company to continue development work on his mine near La Veta, which at one time was considered one of the wonders of Colorado. A number of years ago Senator Bowen was a prominent figure in national politics and during his career figured to more history making events than fall to the average lot of men. Several times he retired from public life, but was induced again to represent his community in political affairs, and at the time of his death was president of the Colorado board of penitentiary commissioners. Thomas M. Bowen was born near the present site of Burlington, Iowa, October 26, 1835; received an academic education at Mount Pleasant, Iowa, was admitted to the bar at the age of 18, and very soon thereafter removed to Wayne County, Iowa, where in 1856 he was elected to the house of representatives of that state. He removed to the Territory of Kansas in 1858; served in the Union army from June, 1861 until July, 1865, first as a captain of the First regiment of Nebraska volunteers, after which he raised and commanded as colonel, the Thirteenth Kansas infantry until the close of the war, was brigadier general by brevet and had command of a brigade during the last two years of the war, first in the army of the frontier, but later in the Seventh Army Corps. He was a member of the national Republican convention as delegate from the state of Kansas in 1864. At the close of the war he remained in Arkansas, was a member and president of the constitutional convention of that state, which convened under the reconstruction acts of congress, and was a justice of the supreme court, of that state for four years, when he accepted the position of governor of Idaho territory, tendered to him by President Grant in 1871, but returned to Arkansas, where he was defeated for the United States senate by Hon. S. W. Dorsey in an open contest before the legislature. In January, 1875, he removed to Colorado, then a territory, resumed the practice of law and at the organization of the state government was elected judge of the Fourth Judicial district and served in that capacity for four years. In 1882 he was elected a representative in the state legislature after having retired from public life, served in that body as chairman of the committee of ways and means until he resigned, having been elected to the United States senate as a Republican. He took his seat Dec. 3, 1883. He was married at Little Rock, Ark., in 1875 to Miss Margaretta Thurston, by whom he is survived. The funeral will be held from the residence at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Wray Gazette - January 4, 1907 - Ex-Senator Dead - Thomas M.
