    • Plunge Kills North Native

      PARISH - A 61-year-old Altmar native was fatally injured Friday afternoon when knocked from a scaffold while working on the construction of a new church at Elmira.

      Pronounced dead at the scene was Alphonso Mowers, native of Altmar and former resident of Pulaski until two years ago when he moved to Elmira.

      A wooden arch, being lifted by a crane struck a scaffold on which Mr. Mowers was standing, plunging the construction worker 30 feet to his death. Mowers had been working on the construction project at the new First Presbyterian church in Elmira only two days according to officials. He was knocked from the scaffold by the impact. Mower's address was listed as Sun Valley Motor Court.

      Mr. Mowers was born in Altmar, Oct. 27, 1904, son of George and Myrtle Waite Mowers and resided in this area most of his life.

      Surviving, besides his wife, Mrs. Jeannette Hicks Mowers, are: A son, Olin Mowers, Brewerton; two foster daughters, Mrs. Joan Nichols, Parish, and Mrs. Barbara Burnswick, Oswego; a foster son, Joseph, Elmira; his mother, Mrs. Gladys Mowers, Binghamton; four brothers, Orlando Mowers, Pulaski; Oakley Mowers, Altmar, George and Harold Mowers, both of Binghamton; three sisters, Mrs. Arthur Davis, Pulaski; Mrs. Charles Woolsey, Binghamton, and Mrs. Harry Landers, Cortland, and six grandchildren.

      Another brother, John Mowers, died unexpectedly three weeks ago in Binghamton.

      The funeral was today at Colosse Baptist church with Rev. Donald George, former pastor officiated. Burial was in Pulaski cemetery.
