Biographical or historical data
James S. Hallowell, a Quaker, was born on 7 Feb. 1821 in Cheltenham, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania to James S. Hallowell (1797-1820) and Amelia Bird Hallowell (1792-1868). He married Margaret Stabler (b. 1824) of Montgomery County, Maryland on 7 May 1846. From 1842-1846 Hallowell and his brother Caleb were principals of the Alexandria Boarding School for young women in Alexandria, Virginia. The school was founded by Hallowell's uncle Benjamin Hallowell (1799-1877) in 1824. In 1848 James Hallowell left his uncle's school and started the Alexandria Female Seminary. It operated until the start of the Civil War. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Hallowell moved from Alexandria to Montgomery County, Maryland, where at one time he held a prominent position in the Post Office. He died in Clifton Springs, New York on 12 July 1886 and was buried at his residence in Montgomery County, Maryland.
