About Dr. James H. Nowlin

"Dr. Nowlin, in addition to practicing medicine, was a druggist in Virginia, and in 1862 removed from there to Georgia, where he continued the same profession and line of business. He died in May, 1886. He reared three children; the eldest, Samuel H., served through the war under Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, was three times a prisoner, and made two escapes - he is now of Little Rock, Ark.; the third son, Casper W., was in the army toward the latter part of the war, and is now also at Little Rock. Dr. Nowlin's first wife died while her children were quite young, and his second wife, to whom he was married some years afterward, bore him one daughter, Olivia, now Mrs. Noble. The Doctor was a graduate from the medical department of the University of Virginia. He was a brilliant scholar and skillful physician, and during his life contributed much valuable literature to the profession." ~• the date of death is in question
