Hallin, Arthur B.,

The people of Harrington and vicinity were greatly shocked last Sunday morning by the news of the death of A. B. Hallin,  one of the firm of the Harrington Drug Co and a brother of Mrs. J. M. Gunning. Mr. Hallin was taken ill Wednesday night of last week … and passed away Sunday night at midnight. A post-mortem examination revealed an abnormal and diseased liver which was the direct cause of his death. Arthur B. Hallin was a young man about 30 years old, the greater part of his life having been spent in Lincoln County, in Sprague, Harrington and Davenport. He was for years chief deputy in the county auditors office, and was one of the most efficient and accurate officials ever in the court house. Being an excellent penman his books were a marvel of neatness. He was the democratic nominee for the county auditor at the recent county election. He had been in Harrington the past year, a member of the Harrington Drug Co. A general favorite with all his many friends, of a cheerful and exceptionally pleasant disposition, his death is much lamented. Funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Tuesday, conducted by Rev I S Leonard. After the sermon the body was taken in charge by the Knights of Pythias, he having been a member of Davenport lodge, a large number of Knights from Davenport being in attendance. Fifty KP’s were in line to the cemetery where the last rites of the lodge were performed. (Citizen-Dec 7, 1906)

Born: May 14, 1924, Odessa, WA.  Died: June 19, 2009, Spokane,WA.  Herb was born on the family farm 9 ½ miles southeast of Odessa,WA to David and Anna Maria ‘Mary’ (Hoff) Hardung, May 14, 1924. His grandparents on both sides were early pioneers in the Ritzville-Odessa area.  Justina Yankee was the mid-wife who told Mary she had a son, but he would not live. Mrs. Yankee put Herb in a shoe box and put him in the warming oven above the stove. Later the Dr. came and Herb weighed less than 4 lbs., he was skin and bones. Mary was sickly and Herb was premature.  AS Herb grew up he was weak and skinny till his teens, then he became stronger and filled out to become a strong, powerful man. Herb would take on any job, always saying there has to be a way to do it, and he would do it!  Herb became a large farmer and businessman in the Davenport - Harrington area, where he was named Soil Conservation Farmer in 1973 and Water Quality Farmer of the Year in 1995. Herb was also in the real estate business owning properties in California, Florida and Washington.  Through the years, he always hauled the rocks off the fields where needed, so he decided when he was about 75 years old that he did not want a rock grave marker. Having taught himself how to weld and build hitches and all kinds of metal work on the farm gave him the idea to have a metal grave marker which he designed and helped make.  Herb was not a churchgoer, but he was a Christian. Herb studied the Bible and was amazed at God’s creations wherever he went. Herb loved Mother Nature, his family, good cowboy music, friends and beer.” (Funeral Program)

Hollopeter, Charles G.,

Charles G. Hollopeter, 61, pioneer of Harrington, died at Sacred Heart hospital in Spokane, Monday, March 6, 1934. He had been taken to Spokane last Saturday, said to be suffering from a complication of diseases, and was said to have been in bad condition. He is survived by one brother, F.M.

He was preceded in death at Harrington by two brothers, Joe W and John, a number of years ago. Charles G. Hollopeter and his brother John leased and farmed the J L Ball land southwest of Harrington for many years until they finally acquired land of their own, when they began building up a herd of purebred Shorthorn cattle. They named this place Floatwood Shorthorn Farm. These brothers were bachelors, and after the death of John, Charles continued to carry on alone. He was of a jovial turn of mind, and could always hold up his end of a conversation when jest, fun or “kidding” entered into it, and he was a likeable fellow. The funeral, under the auspices of Harrington Lodge No 160, IOOF, was held Wednesday afternoon at the Harrington Funeral Home where the Rev Ernest Goudge delivered the funeral sermon… Mr. Hollopeter had been an Odd Fellow for about 30 years. Interment was in Hillcrest Cemetery, Harrington where his two brothers, father and mother are buried. Mrs. Lee G. Hollopeter, Lynntown, Oregon, and Ira W. Hollopeter, Seattle, were present at the funeral. (Harr. Citizen-Mar 9, 1934)

Hollopeter, D. W.

After an eventful life of more than four score and eight years, Grandpa D. W. Hollopeter at 8 o’clock on Monday morning, Aug 26, 1912, peacefully closed his eyes to the scenes of this life. That mysterious guiding intelligence which governs this wonderfully intricate human mechanism through the five senses, that divine spark, deserted its earthly home and released through what we call death, fled to realms more beautiful than anything earth ever saw. The end came at the farm home south of town where he lived with his two sons and a daughter, J. C. and C. G. Hollopeter and Mrs. McAllister. He was first taken ill with a severe cold contracted during the week of our early harvest rains, but he soon rallied from this, only to suffer a relapse and on Friday of last week a trained nurse came out of Spokane and remained with him until the end, which came after five days, the direct cause of which, aside from advanced age, was uremia. He was born May 4, 1824, almost a century ago, in Rye Township, Perry Co, PA.  With his parents he moved to Miami County, in the western part of Ohio in the year 1831. Here his parents tilled the soil, enjoyed the frontier life, reared a large family, and finally they too as all mankind must do, came to the end and were laid to rest in the vicinity of their home. In 1848 Mr. D. W. Hollopeter was united in marriage with Miss Hattie Ingle, near Covington, Ohio, and to this union were born nine children; five sons and four daughters, of whom 4 sons and 3 daughters survive their father as follows: J W; J C; C G; and Mrs. McAllister, all of Harrington, WA; Marion Hollopeter of Ledora, Iowa; Mrs. L. A. Brooks of Waterloo, Iowa; and Mr.s M. V. Elliot of Carroll City, Iowa.  His wife preceded him in death March 23, 1898 at Moscow, Idaho. One son, Cyrus died in Colorado thirteen years ago and one daughter died in infancy. He leaves more than 25 great grandchildren. In 1854, before the railroads had shortened the distance across the continent from months to days, Mr. Hollopeter moved by team to Iowa County, Iowa; thence back to the Buckeye State again in 1859, returning again to Iowa in the fall of 1868. Their next journey brought them to Foster County, North Dakota in 1898 and in 1899 they came west to Harrington, WA where Mr. Hollopeter had since resided. The funeral was held Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock from the First Presbyterian church, the Rev S H King, pastor, officiating… On July 6, 1910, Mr. D. W. Hollopeter called upon The Citizen and, in a reminiscent mood, said that his grandfather on the parental side of his house was a personal friend of George Washington, under whom he fought for seven years. This great grandsire, he said, was a powerful man of fine physique and was seven feet six inches in height. He came to America from Germany and lived to the exceptional age of 130 years. Many of his descendants lived in Northwestern Ohio and were noted for being very tall of stature. At that time the old gentleman remarked that he had not used tobacco in any form for 30 years. He wore a full beard nearly black and his heavy beetling eyebrows were black as coal. He walked quite freely with the aid of a cane and read the newspapers without the use of glasses. (Citizen-Aug 30, 1912)

Hollopeter, Harriet “Hattie” (Ingle)

Last Sunday morning J. W. Hollopeter and J. E.

Hollopeter who died here last August at the age of 88 years. His wife preceded him in death 14 years. Messrs Turner and Hollopeter returned by train with the casket.

A. Allin in the presence of his Odd Fellow brethren, his town and country friends and his relatives. Mr. & Mrs. J. E. Turner, morticians, had charge of the body. Corcoma, a cancerous form, attacking his internal anatomy, was given as the cause of death. Mr. Hollopeter was born at Ladora, Iowa, Aug 21, 1862 and came to Harrington in May, 1899, a short time after the arrival here of his brother Charles. The two brothers leased and farmed the J. L. Ball land southwest of town for 17 years, gradually acquiring land of their own until they had built up quite a little stock ranch and had founded a herd of purebred Shorthorn cattle—and as a minister said from a Harrington pulpit, as his text, “Then came Schenacarib.” Mr. Hollopeter is survived by three brothers and one sister: J W “Joe” of Spokane; F M of Ladora, Iowa; and Charles G of Harrington; Mrs. V. M. Elliot of Carroll City, Iowa. Brothers J. W. of Spokane and Charles G. of Harrington were at his funeral, as were the following nieces and nephews: Mrs. J. W.

Deceased was a member of Harrington Lodge No 160, IOOF, and Unique Encampment IOOF of Spokane. The funeral was held in the forenoon, following a custom in the hollopeter family, coming down through generations, from the old-time Dnukards. “No Hollopeter was ever buried, as far as we have any record, at any other hour except one falling in the forenoon, and almost always at 11 o’clock,” said his brother J. W. Hollopeter. John Hollopeter lived and died a bachelor. He was frank, honest, jovial, sincere and thrifty. He and his brother Charles were life companions and business partners. They ate each other’s cooking, forebore each other’s “chafing,” and were jolly good companions. They shared alike each other’s joys and sorrows. (Harr. Citizen-Oct 14, 1929)

Hollopeter, J. W. (Joe) ,

J. W. Hollopeter, 73, of S 214 Jefferson, Spokane, for 14 years last past a Great Northern railway agent and an early pioneer of Harrington, died in Spokane Tuesday morning at about 3 o’clock.

E. Turner then brought the remains to Harrington where services were conducted at the Harrington Community Congregational church at 11 o’clock Thursday, the Rev Donald M McNeil officiating.  Harrington Lodge No 160, IOOF, of which he was a member, had charge of the funeral and interment was in Harrington Cemetery where his father, mother, and one brother are buried… Harrington was the former home of the Hollopeters and they were identified at that time with the First Presbyterian church which in later years merged with the Baptist church under the Congregational denomination.

M. at LaDora, Iowa, and one sister, Mrs. U. J. Bussler, Stevens Co, WA… “Joe” Hollopeter was a good citizen and neighbor, a loving husband and fond father. He was a good conversationalist, perfectly at ease in any crowd, which he could entertain from his store of rich experiences gained through years of mixing with humanity as it flowed to and from across the continent behind the steam horse. He was courteous, obliging and accommodating, always solicitous for the unfortunate, the weaker and the needy. (Harrington Citizen-Mar 20, 1931)

She was alive and active for her 88 years and told of her various interests at the home; she made quilts, crocheted, made her own house dresses, etc. At 86 years, she was thrilled with her first air plane trip—Portland to Los Angeles. Although she had been on the hospital floor at the home, a month, she was able to be in a wheel chair, and was mentally active up to her death. Her condition became worse Thursday of last week and death was the result of senility. Surviving Mrs. Hollopeter are her children: Ira W. Hollopeter, Seattle; Roy A. Hollopeter, Gresham, OR; Dan (Lee) Hollopeter, Portland; Alta Pilant, Boulder City, Nevada; Maude Bartlett, Walla Walla; 3 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. (Citizen-1 June 1951)
