Dowling was a saloon-keeper & cigar-maker in Springfield. His ornately carved monument is a chair beneath which is the caption "Thou Shalt Be Missed Because Thy Seat Will Be Empty." The carving is one of most interesting of over 800 carved by Mr. Edward Levanius of Springfield, who was one of the last of the fine old hand stone-cutters of a bygone day.
