      DEATH OF F.H. FOWLER, MONDAY, JUNE 4, 1934
      Funeral Conducted From His late Home Wednesday
      Frank H. Fowler, aged 77, passed away at his home in Linesville Monday morning at seven o'clock, June 4, 1934. He was the son of John and Adaline Fowler and was born at Madison, Ohio, October 21, 1856. He was united in marriage with Kate Wood, of Madison, February 8, 1880, and to this union were born five children, four of whom survive. A son, John Sextus Fowler, passed away at Linesville, March 11, 1911.
      He is survived by his wife, son, Oliver A., of Cleveland, Ohio; daughters, Grace E. Paden, Perry; Pollie E. Gillette, Erie; Fleta A. Lowing, Linesville; eight grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs. Dollie Callow, Spokane, Wash., Mrs. Cora Brand, Cleveland. One grandchild, Glenn Wert Paden, passed away about twenty-five years ago.
      Mr. Fowler had been in the produce raising business all his life and for over fifty years of that time had specialized in raising and selling onions. He was the first to produce onions in the Pymatuning area on an extensive scale and it was through his efforts that outsiders were interested in this business and that it eventually was built up to great production. The development of this local industry which employed hundreds of men, women and children for many years was the result of his pioneering in the rich soil of Western Crawford county. After over thirty years connections with the industry and after watching the development of the Pymatuning project over a period of twenty years, Mr. Fowler was not given the opportunity to see the lake as his eyesight failed months before his death.
      Mr. Fowler really retired from active participation in business ten years ago when he sold his buildings and land in the lake area to the State. His interests were centered about his home and the members of his large family, an interest which increased with his declining years. It is not necessary to draw upon the imagination to realize his kindness and his constant good nature.
      The funeral was held from his late home, Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock, conducted by Rev. George A. Gay, of the Universalist Church. Four grandsons, Dr. Carl Fowler, Richard Paden, Alvin Gillette and Roger Lowing acted as pall bearers. Another grandson, Lawrence Lowing was unable to be present, he being a patient in Spencer hospital.
      Interment was made in the Linesville cemetery.
