This caused paralysis, and he has been helpless ever since. He receives the largest pension paid to private soldiers. October 3, 1866, he married Julia Fitzgerald, of Pottsville, Pa. She was born May 15, 1845, and they have three children: Seward A., born February 14, 1868; Nelson E., born July 9, 1871; and Georgia A., born October 1, 1873.

Pg. 125, Polly M. Wood Scrapbook
July 11, 1901
" Mr. Julius F. Bowman, aged sixty seven years, a highly respected resident of this village, died at the home of his son Ward, in Johnstown, on Tuesday evening of last week, July 2, at nine o'clock. Death was the result of a complication of diseases.
Mr. Bowman had not been in good health for several years past, and since the death of his wife, which occurred in February last, his decline had been quite noticeable. He had been able to be about, however, up to within a few days of his death. During the past four months he had spent the greater portion of the time in Johnstown, at the home of his son Ward, but came to Northville frequently during that period to visit his relatives here.
Deceased was a son of the late Isaac Bowman and was born in Columbia County, this state, on January 4, 1834. He came to Northville with his parents when about seven years of age, and with the exception of two years spent in Pennsylvania and the time during which he served in the army, his whole life was passed in this village. He was married on April 8, 1857 to Matilda R. Lobdell, who died on February 3 of the present year. Foe nearly four years he served his country faithfully during the War of the Rebellion, enlisting in company D, 93d regiment, New York State Volunteers, in December 1861, and receiving his discharge in July 1865. He participated in the battles of the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Williamsburg, Cold Harbor and a number of other important engagements. He had been a member of the Northville Presbyterian Church for the past fifteen years, serving as trustee and treasurer of the society, respectively, and occupying much of his time in advancing the work of the church. In politics, Mr. Bowman was a staunch Republican, and as a neighbor his relations with his fellow associates were of a most agreeable character.
He is survived by two sons, Ward M. Bowman of Johnstown and Isaac E. Bowman, of the drug firm of Kested & Bowman of this place, and by a grand daughter, Miss May Bowman who is at present visiting Colorado, also by one brother, Abram Bowman of Fonda, and three sisters, Mrs. Nathan Olmstead and Mrs. Leman Frost of Northville, and Mrs. William A. Russell of Ypsilanti, Mich.
The remains were brought to Northville on the Morning of July 4 and conveyed to the Presbyterian Church where funeral services were conducted by Rev. George K. Fraser at eleven o'clock. Mr. Bowman was a member of Matherson Post, No. 322, G.A.R., of this village, and the bearers were comrades John M. Ressequie, Isaac C. Bass, Morgan L. Sneyder, Isaac R. Stanton and W. H. Blowers. The remains were taken to the upper cemetery for interment and placed beside those of his wife."
