Geo. W. Caward Dies at Owatonna.
This community was deeply shockee{sp} Monday morning to learn of the death of one of its most prominent members, George W. Caward, death having occurred Sunday night and having been most unexpected.
Mr. Cawrad{sp} was one of the most popular business men in Owatonna and was generally esteemed for his rugged honesty and his genial, philanthropic nature.
George W. Caward was born near Dover, England, December 23, 1840. When about two years old his parents removed to this country, settling in Ontario county, New York. In the early sixties Mr. Caward came to Wisconsin, locating at Whitewater where he embarked in the grain and stock business. Following this he was for nine years a conductor on what was then known as the Chicago, Milwaukee and Prairie du Chien railway. While at Whitewater he was married, December 24, 1867 to Miss Rose Kinney, who survives him.
Mr. Caward went to Cresco, Iowa, in the early seventies where he entered into partnership with his brother, J. B. Caward in the dry goods business. After two years in Cresco he disposed of his interests and came to Owatonna where he began the operation of a bus and omnibus line.
About 1888 he engaged in the coal and wood business in this city and had since continued in that work. He was known as one of the “square dealing” busines{s} men in the city.
Besides his wife the deceased is survived by a son Neil, who is employed as advertising man with a large corporation in Chicago, three brothers, J. B. of Texas, R. S. of Cresco, Iowa, and A. H. of Waterloo, Iowa, and one sister, Mrs. Emma DeNoyelles of Cresco, Ia. All of these with the exception of J. B. Caward are expected to be in attendance at the funeral, which will be held Wednesday afternoon at one thirty o’clock, from the home on Broadway. - Owatonna (Minn.) Journal-Chronicle.
