Dow City, Sept. 19 - Special in the Review
Peter J. Hallowell, son of Joseph and Marcia Adams Hallowell, was born Oct. 16, 1855, near Strawberry Point, Iowa and died Sept. 16, 1928 at Fort Dodge, at the age of 72 years, 11 months.

In 1867 the family came to Crawford county, settling about three miles northwest of Dow City. Here he grew to manhood, receiving his education in the public schools. It was here hat he engaged in farming, the occupation he followed through life.

On May 17, 1882, he was united in marriage to Tillie G. Scott and to this union four children were born: Mrs. Ada Rule of Fort Dodge; Mrs. Inez Holcombe, Fayetteville, N. C.; Joseph E. of Dow City and Jane of Fort Dodge, all of whom survive him.

Mr. Hallowell was one of the early settlers of Crawford county, having been a resident for 61 years. He entered into the life of the community and saw the county transformed from a prairie land to its present state of development. He was public spirited and interested in the upbuilding of community and schools. For a short term he served as township trustee and for many years was director of the Belltown school. He was quiet in many liberal in views, having been raised in the faith of the Universalist church. He was affiliated with the Mineral Spirit Camp of the Modern Woodman of America.

His greatest interest centered about his home life and he was always happier when surrounded by his family and friends. Besides his wife, son and daughters, he leaves to mourn his death nine grandchildren, a number of nieces and nephews and many neighbors and friends.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. church in Dow City, Tuesday, at 2:30 P.M., a number of friends being present to pay their last tribute of respect. The remains were placed to rest in the Dow City Cemetery.
