NEHEMIAH DOWELL was born March 29, 1831, in VA. When one year old his parents moved to KY; from there to middle TN, and at fourteen years old moved to Louisiana, MO. He lived there until the opening of OK. He was one of the first men to leave the train in Guthrie to make the race. When twenty-one years of age he married Miss Margaret Phillips. To this union two sons were born: Elias Frederick and John Milton. They have both gone on before and are at rest in the same cemetery as their father. In 1870 he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Rinker. To this union nine children were born, all of whom are living and were at the funeral of their father. They are Samuel H.

Dowell of Atchison, KS, Robert Guy Dowell of Stamps, AK., George and Levi Dowell of Mulhall, Grover Dowell of Mulhall, and Miss Lela, who with the wife survive him. He united with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church when thirty years of age and always remained a true believer in God.
When the rebellion broke out he enlisted in Price's army and remained in the army for four years.
He passed to the great beyond March 20, 1913, after being a great sufferer for months, in which time he was ever patient, and all that loving care could do was done for him by his family.
