Charles John Fowler

Birth: 1860
Indiana, USA
Death: 1943
Hidalgo County
New Mexico, USA

Charles had been married before and had several children; they divorced and there is no record of what became of them. Charles met Edith Peter in Arkansas where she was working in a store he had worked in. Though both were from Belleville, IL, they had not met before. After marrying in 1917, they opened up a photo studio in Heber Springs, Arkansas, then together went to school to become chiropractors and were adventurous enough to travel throughout the American southwest and in the 1930 census they were both chiropractors in Delta and nearby Hotchkiss, Colorado. By 1935 they were living on East Sixth Street in Lordsburg, New Mexico. Dr. Fowler left behind a diary entry complaining about how hot the area was. He was much older than Edith and died sometime in 1943 at age 83 in hot Lordsburg. Edith returned to Belleville, IL and lived out her life with family there.

It is so nice to read about this memorial, when before it was just a name on a stone. Thank you. May he rest in peace..hopefully under a shade tree!
