ROWLEY, Edson M. (1860 - 1919) "EDSON M. ROWLEY DIES - PUBLIC-SPIRITED VANCOUVER MAN IS PARALYSIS VICTIM - Resident of City for 38 Years and Largest Taxpayer in County. - Noted for Integrity - "VANCOUVER, Wash. June 8 - (Special) - Thousands of residents of Vancouver and Clarke county mourn today for Edson M. Rowley, one of the most prominent, popular and public-spirited men in southwestern Washington, is dead, having passed away at 8:30 this morning from a stroke of paralysis which he suffered May 13. At the time of his death and for several years past, Mr. Rowley was the heaviest individual taxpayer in Clarke county. He is a brilliant example of a poor boy, securing his own education and with eternal optimism and hard work, reaching a place of affluence and prominence in his own community. "Mr. Rowley was born in Duchess county, New York, June 3, 1860, so celebrated his 59th birthday a few days ago, while in bed. Securing the necessary qualifications, Mr. Rowley entered the law department of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and was graduated with high honors in March, 1884. The name of the late J. B. Angell, for so many years president of that institution, is on the diploma he received when he was graduated. While at the university he joined the Sigma Chi fraternity and always maintained a keen interest in it. "Coming to Vancouver 38 years ago, he saw here what he thought the ideal site of a great city, and he decided to locate here permanently. Later he went into the real estate business. During his life he handled no less than 13 additions to this city. He was progressive always and stood for public improvements. A few years ago the property assessments he paid for one year amounted to nearly $20,000, for pavement, sidewalks, curbs and sewers. He served on the city council at different times with unselfish motives and keen foresight for the civic welfare of Vancouver, which he boosted year in and year out. Even in trying hard times, he never lost faith in this city's great future and when the great industrial growth started here two years ago with the building of the shipyards, and other important industries, he was seeing fulfilled his life's dream. He looked forward to seeing a city here of 50,000 people before 1930. He was in the prime of life, only 59 and active. "At the end Mr. Rowley was surrounded by his family, his wife, Mrs. Mabel A. Rowley; daughters, Mrs. Vivian Dart and Mrs. Genevieve Holder, both of Portland, and Louise Rowley, aged 7. (Portrait inserted with caption: "E. M. Rowley, Vancouver Pioneer, Who Died Yesterday.") "Mr. Rowley was a member of Vancouver commandery, Knights Templar, No. 10, and Mount Hood lodge, No. 32. The funeral will be held at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, June 10. Rev. A. H. Thompson, pastor of the First Methodist church, will conduct the services at the home, Tenth and B streets, and the Knights Templar in full regalia will form an escort to the Columbia river interstate bridge and will accompany the body to the Portland crematorium, where they will hold their impressive ritualistic services."
