Cecile Alta Howell

F, b. 16 January 1894, d. 14 November 1966
     Note: Cecile told this story to her daughter-in-law, Marvel (Hillman) DeVault.

When Cecile's son Bill got a new car he picked her up and took her for a drive. Shortly after they started out he turned a corner sharply and Cecile's door came open. Cecile almost fell out, but she was a short lady and her feet hooked under the dash. I can almost imagine the scene as the car rounds the corner with the top half of Cecile suspended in space and her only connection to the car being her feet hooked under the dash.

Dallas C. Howell

M, b. March 1871, d. 19 October 1913
     Dallas C. Howell was born in March 1871 at Iowa.1 He was the son of Kneedham Howell and Ruth E. Barnett.1 Dallas C. Howell married Charlotte C. Holloway, daughter of Samuel Holloway and Amanda Jane Snodgrass, on 22 March 1892 at Dallas Co., IA. Cause of death: Burst appendix resulting from acute appendicitis.

Bayard Transcript - October 18, 1913

     D. C. Howell was operated on for an acute attack of appendicitis by Doctors: Deputy, of this place, Stewart, of Mitchell, and Palmer, of Bridgeport. The condition of Mr. Howell only allowed an attempt to remove the pus which had formed, the appendicts (sic) having broken before the operation. The exact result will not be known for a few days but it believed by the physicians that he will recover.
     Since the above was written Mr. Howell's condition has become much worse and no hope is entertained for his recovery.

Also in the same newspaper:     
Miss Elipha Peters, a trained nurse, from Scottsbluff, was with D. C. Howell during his operation for appendicitis, but had to return to the Bluffs on the afternoon train, as she had an critical case at that place. Her place was taken by a nurse from Denver.

Dallas C. Howell died on 19 October 1913 at Bayard, Morrill Co., NE, at age 42


Bayard Transcript - October 25, 1913

     This community was shocked on last Saturday to learn of the death of D. C. Howell which occurred at about four o'clock in the morning. His condition had not given much promise of recovery since his operation for appendicitis which was preformed (sic) Monday by Doctors: Stewart of Mitchell, Palmer of Bridgeport, and Deputy of this place.
     Mr. Howell had suffered three attacks prior to the last one, and had permitted the operation only when he had felt it to be the last resort, as he had hoped to wear out the pain as he had done before. The fact that if he had been operated on a week before, that he would have undoubtedly been alive today, makes his death doubly hard, as his splendid constitution would have carried him through.
     Mr. Howell was married in Michigan in 1891 to Miss Charlotte Holloway and to this union two sons and one daughter were born, all being present at his demise.
     Mr. Howell came to Bayard a few years ago and started a meat market which was burned down a short time later, after which he went into the stock market, working at time-at his trade. Possessing a kindly disposition and a very jovial nature, he was universally liked and his loss is felt by his many friends, but falls most heavily on his wife, two sons and the daughter who loved him as a good husband and father.
     All the skilled physicians, a good nurse and the loving care of relatives was done until he passed away. After a short service, conducted by Rev. Chilton at the home, the body was taken to Iowa, Sunday, for burial, accompanied by Mrs. Howell and children. We regret that we have not been able to secure biographical data.

Words cannot express our thanks or appreciation of the many acts of kindness shown us during the illness and after the death of our husband and father.
     Mrs. D. C. Howell and children.
