Birth: Jan. 1, 1859
Hancock County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Oct. 26, 1894

Scott Cowhick, one of the most respected young men in Cheyenne, passed away at the home of his brother, O. F. Cowhick, 212 E. 18th Street, yesterday afternoon…had been a sufferer from pulmonary trouble nearly all his life…

…born in Hancock County, West Virginia, January 1, 1859,
and was therefore 35 years, 9 months, and 26 days old at the time of his death.

He came to Cheyenne 12 years ago with his brothers, the late Rev. J.Y. Cowhick, D.R. and O.F. Cowhick. When his health permitted he was employed in the store of the Cowhick Dry Goods Company, of which his brother. O.F., is manager.

About a year ago Mr. Cowhick went east with the hope that a change would benefit him and returned to this city last June…his friends began to realize that he had not long to remain with them..

Besides his brothers here in Cheyenne, the deceased has a sister, Mrs. J.B. LeFever, of this city; 3 married sisters residing in Ohio, and a brother at Mitchell, S.D.
