Dr. H. H. Gates  Pioneer Physician Glidden, Carroll Co, Iowa

Photo donated by: Nancy Hatch Warner nwarner7@cox.net

Dr. H. H. Gates was a pioneer physician of Carroll County, having come to Glidden in 1869 when the surrounding country was mostly in a state of nature and there were but five houses in the town. He frequently rode a distance of twenty miles to visit patients, including the sick of Guthrie, Greene and Calhoun Counties as well as Carroll County.

Dr. Gates was a native of Vermont, born at Castleon, Rutland County, November 27, 1827, a son of Elisha and Betsey (Kingsley) Gates, the fifth of eleven children. His father was a cousin of General Gates, of Revolutionary fame. His early life was spent in his native county, where he received a fair common-school education. On arriving at the age of twenty-two years he went to Genesee Station, Alleganey County, New York, having learned telegraphy under Professor Morse. He was the forty-sixth telegraph operator in the United States. He followed telegraphy many years, and held many important positions, and for some time was division operator.

Dr. Gates was married twice. He was first married December 25, 1849 to Miss Sarah J. Gray, a daughter of Hon. Henry Gray, of Bennington County, Vermont, and they had two children: Harley and Jennie. Mrs. Gates died in 1853. Dr. Gates moved to Iowa in 1855, locating at Wheatland, Clinton County. In May, 1857, the doctor married to Miss Mary J. Conway, of Jackson County, IA. June 1, 1862, he enlisted in Company E, Thirty-first Iowa Infantry, and shortly afterward was appointed Hospital Steward, and later was commissioned Assistant Surgeon. In December, 1863, he was promoted to Surgeon, which position he filled until the close of the war. On June 28, 1865, he received his honorable discharge.

Gehling

Growing up in Iowa

I was born at exactly 11:08 P.M. on the 18th day of August, 1939, at St. Anthony's Hospital, Carroll, Iowa. I was the firstborn son of my father (Lawrence), who was the firstborn son of his father (Henry), who was the firstborn son of his father (Herman), who was the firstborn son of his father (Henry), who was the first Gehling to come to America from the old country. Had the Gehling family been of royal lineage, I might perhaps have stood in the line of succession; but being descended from generation after generation of black-dirt farmers, I started out simply as Dickie, the little farm boy from western Iowa.
 

My mother Genevieve was nineteen at the time of my birth, my father Lawrence was twenty-three. They had been married just twenty-two months earlier and already had a little girl named Lois. They lived on George Wernimont's farm north of Carroll, Iowa, where my father worked as a hired hand.
 

The day I was born my father was busy mowing weeds along the county highway. He had to finish mowing before he could take my mother to the hospital. I was named Richard Henry at birth. The Richard may have come from the song "Open the Door, Richard," then popular across the country. The Henry was in honor of my paternal grandfather, who - along with my maternal grandmother - was chosen to be a sponsor at my baptism. The ceremony was held in the hospital chapel instead of the parish church because my father had recently had a falling out with the resident pastor.
 

When I was a year and a half old, my mother gave birth to my brother Donnie, then in quick succession to two more sisters (Connie & Bonnie) and two more brothers (Tom & Charlie), each a year apart. Donnie was born with a curved spine and was sickly from the start. He lived only six months before dying of pneumonia. Dad fashioned the coffin out of some new lumber he had on hand. A neighbor named Mrs. Schon lined it with white satin and embroidered material. Donnie was buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery at Carroll, Iowa, in a gravesite provided by Great Grandpa Herman Gehling. The site was afterwards covered with flowers cut from the family garden.
