J. L. SEWALL PASSES ON
Death called at the home of Mrs. Annie Baum Monday afternoon and took away her 72-year-old father, Mr. J. L. Sewall. He had been in poor health for several years, but a month ago serious illness forced him to lose hope of ever logging again and he went to bed at the home of his daughter and never got up again.
Often in life we are reminded of the way of someone's past life by the things they keep around them and so it was with this old man who carefully placed his logging tools at his bedside when he retired for the last time nearly a month ago.
A simple ceremony marked the end of this 72-year-old man who spent a great part of his life in McCurtain county. The Skaggs Funeral Home had charge of the funeral arrangements with the Rev. Batton officiating. Interment was made in the Old cemetery (Broken Bow).
He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Annie Baum and two grandchildren, Thomas and Sue Dodd, both of Broken Bow.5

After graduation with high honours, he entered at once upon his chosen profession. He was employed for two years in township surveys in northern Maine; in 1879 he was assistant engineer of the sewage works at Memphis, Tennessee. During the next two years, as assistant to the late Colonel George E. Waring of Newport Rhode Island, he planned and supervised the construction of the sewage system at Norfolk, Virginia and perform similar tasks at Birmingham, Alabama and other southern towns. As engineer of the Drainage Construction Company of New York City he built the sewage works of Keene, New Hampshire. In 1884 he became instructor in sanitary engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a position he resigned on account of ill-health in the fall of 1885. Returning to his native town, he entered the employment of Pingree & Coe owners and managers of timberlands, and for fourteen years was engaged in topographical and township surveys, a series that gradually covered much of the northern portion of the State. On the death of Mr Coe in 1899, he gave up engineering work and assumed charge of some four million acres of timberlands belonging to that and other estates, having his office in Bangor.4
