Death Of Brower Morgan.
A Veteran Ship Carpenter Passes Away.

Brower W. Morgan, a well known resident of this city, died at an early hour this morning at his home, 168 West Seneca St. He was eight-three years old and for eighty-one years lived continuously in this city.

Up to a year or so ago he had worked at his trade as a ship carpenter and for many years was employed at Goble's shipyard in this city. He helped build most of the Oswego schooners which plied the lake in past years, and some of those now engaged in active trade had at one time or another been caulked or repaired by Brower Morgan, who, perhaps was the oldest ship carpenter on the lakes. The funeral will be held Sunday at his home.
