Johnnie Bowman, Obituary/Death NoticePorter County obituaries and death notices . . . .
A coincidence of a sorrowful nature was developed at two funerals at Tassinong where two boys were buried in the same cemetery at the same time. One was Johnnie, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Bowman; the other Glen, the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Anderson both close neighbors. Both boys were 7 years old, they were taken ill with membranous croup and both died on Friday night of that disease. The funeral took place from one church at the same hour and the remains were interred in the one cemetery immediately after. To intensify the coincidence the boys closely resembled each other.
