Sudden Death of Glover Towery

The sudden death of Glover Towery near his home at Eglantine Monday afternoon was sad news to the people of Shirley and friends of the family elsewhere. Glover, at the time of his death was near thirty years of age and had made his home with his father, Mr. J. H. Towery, during his entire life. With the exception of one child that died while very young, Glover's death is said to be the first which has occurred in the family. Besides his father and mother he is survived by three brothers and four sisters and these have the profound sympathy of many sincere friends. Interment took place at the Eglantine cemetery Tuesday afternoon in the presence of a large assembly.


Notes**Glover was the son of Joshua Hollett Towery and Nancy Elizabeth Stephens Towery
