Brooklyn Daily Standard Union
7 February 1905


Mrs. Jeannette C. SHEVLIN, the only child of Police Sergeant Patrick BOWES of the Greenpoint avenue station, died at her home, 127 East Eighty-fifth street, Manhattan, yesterday. She was born in Bath, N.Y., thirty-two years ago, and came to Greenpoint when eight years old. Nine years ago she married Detective Sergeant SHEVLIN and moved to Manhattan. Three years ago, while getting off a Thirty-fourth street crosstown car she fell and hurt her hip. At first, it was thought to be only a trivial matter, though she was confined to her mother's home for six weeks with a sprained ankle. Tuberculosis conditions developed and she had since been in failing health. Besides her husband she leaves two children. The funeral will take place Thursday morning from her home, and the interment will be in Calvary Cemetery. A suit for damages which she brought against the Metropolitan Street Railway Company is on the calendar for trial next Friday.

Church, officiating. The interment will be made in Cypress Hills Cemetery Thursday morning, under the direction of Oscar H. BOCH.

Mr. EWALD was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles EWALD, of 107 Eugert avenue, and spent most of his life in Greenpoint. He was member of the Star of Hope Lodge, F. and A.M., DeWitt Clinton Commandery, K.T., Progressive Chapter R.A.M., Chase Lodge, I.O.O.F., and Court Nightingale, F. of A.
