Former Lowden Resident Called By Death Last Week

The Wheatland Gazette of last week carried the obituary of Dallas D. Rorick 88 who died Thursday, July 28th, at Monticello where he had made his home for the past seventeen years.

Born in Ohio, Mr. Rorick came to Iowa in 1859 to work with his brother, G.H. Rorick then a merchant here. He spent three years in Lowden. Later he studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1878 and opened a law office in Wheatland the following year. He also practiced law at Miller, S. Dak., and at Oxford Junction. While a resident of Clinton county he served as representative to the state legislature one term.

Mr. Rorick is survived by his only daughter, Miss Julia Rorick at St. Paul, Minn. His wife, who was Miss Mattie J. Hammond of Oxford Junction, preceded him in death.
