A lightly edited transcription of a page 1 article in the 3 Jul 1919 Simcoe Reformer newspaper.


Universal regret will be felt over the death of Mr. Frank Bowlby, clerk of Woodhouse, who passed away yesterday as the result of an operation. He was in his 65th year, and a native of the township in which he lived, and which he served.

Mr. Bowlby was the oldest son of the late Hiram Bowlby, Esq., a member of one of the county's most prominent families. 

He was married twice. He leaves a widow, who was a daughter of the late Rev. Canon Evans, a former rector of Woodhouse. A son and daughter, Mr. Wyatt Bowlby of the Sterling Bank, Toronto, and Miss Annie Bowlby, a nurse in overseas service, children by his marriage to Miss Minnie Wyatt.

Mr. Bowlby was elected clerk of Woodhouse about 23 years ago, and was regarded as one of the most efficient public servants in the district.

He was an Anglican in religion. His political party, the Liberals, he served for years as secretary-treasurer in South Norfolk.
