Recalling More Than a Century of Living

Part 1 of 2.

To write of the life of another is a humbling experience and to live in the presence of that person is a life lesson.

My brother Richard Kent Holloway and I share with you what we have heard recounted by Dorothy Elizabeth West Holloway our mother.

Dorothy Elizabeth (her father’s choice of name) was the first-born child of Wm. C. West and Alma Minnie Walck West with Wm. H. Fickel, M.D. attending in their home located next to the livery stable owned by them in Medicine Bow, Wyo., on Tuesday, Aug. 4, 1914; the day Germany invaded Belgium and the United States declared neutrality in World War I.
