Shelby Amora:  Col. John L. McDowell died suddenly at his residence in Rutherford County, on the morning of the 31st of March.

Col McDowell was the grandson of Col Joseph McDowell of King's Mountain fame and was a whole-souled, genial Christian gentleman.  He was one of the most prominent citizens of his county -- a man of means, of many noble, sterling qualities, and he was bred and trusted in his community.  At the time of his death he was chief executive officer of the Farmers' Alliance in Rutherford.  Hundreds of friends will miss him in the unbounded hospitality of his cultured home..
