A part of the time was spent in true pioneer fashion, living more than 100 miles from a railroad. He was a lover of stock and gained the reputation of being a successful horse and cattle man.

In 1908 he brought his family back to Ringgold county, Iowa, where he remained for the past 23 years.

On September 30th he was taken to St. Joseph hospital, where he was operated on for acute appendicitis. Operation was considered successful until pneumonia and other complications caused his death Sunday morning, October 4.

He was known as a man of simple tastes, an honest industrious worker and a lover of his home and family. While in the west he became a member of both the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodman of America.

He leaves to mourn his departure a wife, two children - Mrs. Alex MOFFATT of Mount Ayr, Iowa, and Troy HOLLOWAY of Chicago, Ill,; six grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs. Julia ADKINS of Portland, Oregon, and Mrs. Alice ADKINS of Twin Falls, Idaho, and one brother, Ray HOLLOWAY of Great Falls, Mont., and a host of other relatives and friends.
