Layman Dowell Fowler
Birth: Jan. 31, 1832
Mount Hope
Holmes County
Ohio, USA
Death: Aug. 16, 1910
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Layman Dowell Fowler was born in Salt Creek Township, Holmes County, Ohio to Thomas Fowler and Mary Stahl. His father passed away when Layman was three years old.

Layman fought for the Union during the Civil War. He enlisted at the age of 30 with company I, 3rd Regiment Ohio Volunteers. He mustered in August 23, 1862.

Layman fought in the battle at Perrysville, Kentucky and the battle at Stones River, Tennessee, one of the bloodiest battles of the war. Over 3000 men died and more than 16,000 were wounded. Layman fell ill and was hospitalized in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

He was honorably discharged at Gallatin, Tennessee on February 14, 1863.

After the war Layman left Ohio with his brother James Brewster Fowler and moved to Missouri and then to Fresno, California. The brothers were carpenters and in the 1880's and 1890's built several buildings in Fresno, along with the fence around the Court House and the Fancher Creek Bridge.

Layman never fully recovered from the disease that he contracted during the war. He lost his sense of smell and became chronically ill and deaf.

In 1910 he moved to Sawtelle National Soldier's Home in Los Angeles where he passed away at the age of 81.
