Obituary

Washington Review and Examiner (Pa.) Nov. 5, 1817;
“Another Revolutionary Patriot gone.
Died near Danville (Ken.) on the 25th Sept. last, Col. Samuel McDowell, in the 85th year of his age. He was distinguished as a most active whig during the revolutionary war–was one of the first settlers of Kentucky–a member of the convention which adopted our constitution–was a judge under the district court system, and afterwards a circuit judge. He has left more than one hundred descendants; and was distinguished for his piety, unsullied integrity, practical patriotism and industrious habits. He lived long and usefully, died serene and happy.–Argus”
