North Conway Reporter-October 4, 1900
Fryeburg, ME
Dr. William C. Towle died at his home on Main Street Monday morning at 3:30, having been in very poor health for some months. He leaves
a widow, and a son and daughter to mourn.

Dr. Wm. Clement Towle, a well-known physician of Fryeburg, died Monday Morning, Oct 1st, after a lingering illness of about two years from a complication of diseases. On Sunday he and his wife and children started for Boston, where they were intending to spend the Winter. At the station, he was seized with a chill and they returned to the family home where he passed away the following morning.

Dr. Towle was the son of Dr. Ira and Sally (Clem­ent) Towle who were old and well-known residents of Fryeburg, and he was born here June 12, 1830, He went to California in the early fifties, where he spent some years in gold mining. When he returned, he stud­ied medicine and practiced many years with his father. Dr. Towle was a surgeon in the Civil War with the 12th and 23d Maine regiments and the 8th Indiana. He was Past Master of the lodge of Masons of Fryeburg, a member of the Portland Commandery, Knights Templar, Com­mander of the local G,A,R, Post for several terms and was greatly beloved by his comrades.

Dr. Towle married Ann Warren by whom he had three children: Laura (a beautiful and lovely girl who died about twenty years ago), Hon. Wm, W. Towle, an attorney of Boston and present candidate for nomination to Congress in the tenth district, and Lucia (Towle) Livingston of Williams College.

Dr. Towle was always a great favorite with all regardless of party or sect and grappled his friends to him with hooks of steel. He was a well-read physician, often called in consultation and held high rank in his profess­ion. He will be greatly missed and will be long remem­bered for his kindly nature and genial ways. His funeral was held Wednesday afternoon, attended by a throng of relatives and sympathizing friends, and conducted by his pastor, Rev. B. N. Stone of the New Jerusalem Church of which Dr. Towle was ever a firm supporter and one of its original members.

Birth

  • Rev Samuel Souther was born on 26 February 1819.
REV. Samuel Souther of Fryeburg (1819-1864). He fell in the battle of the Wilderness on May 6, 1864.

He enlisted as a 1st Sergeant in Company B, Massachusetts 57th Infantry Regiment on 04 Jan 1864.

From the "History of Worcester in the War of the Rebellion." by A. P. Marvin, 1870, p. 505.

Rev. Samuel Souther was born in Fryeburg, Maine. He was a graduate of Dartmouth College in the class of 1842, and was educated for the Christian ministry at Bangor Theological Seminary.
After spending some years as the minister of the Congregational Church in Belfast, Maine and subsequently as agent of the American Sunday School Union, he, in 1857, came to the city of Worcester, where he was made city missionary and also chaplain at the jail and at the asylum for the insane.
Under his ministry the Industrial school connected with the Mission Chapel, was organized in 1857.
In the years 1863 and 1864, he was a representative of this city in the General Court.

While still in the discharge of his legislative duties, an urgent call came for more men, and hardly waiting for the session to close, he enlisted as a private in the Fifty-seventh.
The brief tarry in camp at home, the sudden summons to the front, the swift march, the instant battle, and the fearful slaughter of the regiment, are all matters of history.
The body of Mr. Souther was never found.
Mr. Souther was a man of energy, and did with his might whatever his hand found to do.
He was very useful in his various ministries, but the pressure on his spirit caused by the rebellion, was so strong that he felt constrained to leave all, and take his place in the ranks.
It was a resolution full of self sacrifice.
He disappeared in the Wilderness-battle, May 6, 1864.

In July 1874 his name was included on the Soldiers' Monument in Worcester, MA, as a member of the 57th Masssachusetts Volunteer Infantry.

Death

  • Rev Samuel Souther died on 6 May 1864 at age 45 in Wilderness Battlefield, Spotsylvania, Virginia, United States.

  • Rev Samuel Souther was buried in Burial Details Unknown, Specifically: Battle of the Wilderness, VA.1

In 1901, William was editor and publisher of the Yale Alumni Songs. William was the President of the Towle Music Company, a member of the Odd Fellows and Masonic Lodge. He last resided at 29 Main Street in Worcester. His own manuscript found in the Society of Mayflower Descendants at Plymouth, Massachusetts says he married 6 Apr 1887.

The following is William's obituary from a Worcester, Massachusetts newspaper on the day of his death:

"DR. SOUTHER DIES FROM PNEUMONIA: One of Worcester's Prominent Physicians Expires After Short Illness, Aged 71.

Dr. William Towle Souther aged 71 years, 11 months and 14 days, a prominent physician and surgeon in Worcester for years died at 7 a.m. today in his home, 22 Auburn Street. Death was due to pneumonia. He had been confined to his bed since Saturday.

He was born in Belfast, ME, March 7, 1850, the son of Reverend Samuel T. Souther and Mary Francis Towle.

The latter is still living in Cleveland, OH at the advanced age of 96 years.

The Souther family came to Worcester when Dr. Souther was only seven years of age. He graduated from Classical High School and then entered Yale University. He graduated with the degree of A.B. in 1873. After acting as Principal at the Grafton High School for one year he went to Harvard Medical School where he graduated in 1877. He spent a year in the Boston City Hospital.

Dr. Souther began to practice of medicine in Worcester in March 1878, his first office being located in the Old Salisbury Mansion at Lincoln Square. He first began to make his calls about the city on horseback.

Dr. Souther was particularly interested in educational matters. He was a Republican and was elected as a member of the school committee, ward 1, in 1884. He served faithfully for years on the school committee, being the chairman of the committee at the dedication of the English high school building which is known as the Classical High.

Dr. Souther retired from active practice about 15 years ago. He was a great reader, being a devotee of Scott and Dickens and was also fond of music, having been connected with the Worcester Festival chorus for many years.

He became a fellow of the Massachusetts Medical Society in 1877 and was active in the Hancock club in Worcester before the club was disbanded.

He was a member of the Central Congregational church; Athelstan Lodge, A.F. & A.M.; Regulus Lodge, Knights of Pythias; Redgley Lodge, International Order of Odd Fellows.

Dr. Souther was united in marriage, October 5, 1887 to Elizabeth Newland of Worcester who survives. Other survivors are three daughters; Mrs. Frederick W. Haskell. Elizabeth and Gertrude Souther; three grandchildren, Frederick, Mary and Anne Haskell all of Worcester. Two sisters; Mrs. William E. Chandler of Prince Bay, NY and Mrs. Gail S.
