CALLAWAY, John Thomas
1861-1936
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
NIGHT WATCHMAN CALLAWAY ACCIDENTLY KILLED -- Death Came Instantaneously from Discharge of Shotgun While John T. Callaway and His Son Were Hunting -- The community was shocked Wednesday afternoon to learn of the fatal accident while hunting, that took the life of John T. Callaway, old and respected citizen. Mr. Callaway and his son had gone out hunting and were on Highway 18, six miles west of Clinton. They had stopped the car near a dead tree and young John had gotten out of the car for a better shot, but was urging his father to go home. Mr. Callaway had sat down on the opposite side of the car, on the running board and had his feet on the ground. His son hearing the report of the gun rushed to his father to find him dead, the full load of the magazine having gone through his neck on the right side. Young John said his father must never have known what struck him. He supposed, from all appearances, that as he lifted the gun which was an old style repeating 12 gauge shot gun, that the hammer must have caught on the running board and exploded it. John got the body of his father into the car and brought him directly to the Consalus and Peck Funeral Home, then went to bear the fatal news to his mother. John T. Callaway was born in Harrisonville 75 years ago last March 15. He was married to Miss Nora Edick who survives, with their two sons, Jerry and John B., one brother, Jerry G. Callaway, and a half sister, Mrs. Mason Anderson Sr., all of Clinton. Mr. Callaway operated a meat market in Clinton for many years, but for the past six years had been night watchman and from 1900-06 served Clinton as city marshal. He was a kindly man with many friends, prominent in the Democratic party, and had been a member of the Baptist church many years. Funeral arrangements had not been made at the time the Eye Went to press. -- The funeral rites for John Thomas Callaway, who was killed last Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. when the hammer accidentally tripped on the shotgun he had been using while hunting, were Friday afternoon at the First Baptist Church. The body lay in state from Thursday noon until 1:00 o'clock Friday at the Consalus and Peck mortuary, and was then taken to the First Baptist Church where Mr. Callaway had so long been a member and faithful in attendance until the last years when the nature of his work as nightwatchman interfered with his ordinary daytime routine. The large auditorium was filled, both out of respect to the deceased and in sympathy for the bereaved family, especially the son, John Barton, sole companion of his beloved father on the fatal trip that proved so disastrous. John T. Callaway was the younger son of James Heywood Callaway and his first wife, Rebecca Farmer Callaway, whose father, Jeremiah Farmer, a pioneer Baptist preacher of Cass County, was the man for whom his brother, Jerry Callaway, was named. John was born at Harrisonville, Cass County, March 15, 1861, in the shadow of the War Between the States and, with his family, Was the victim of border raids from Kansas Bushwackers. His family was ejected from its fine farm, house, buildings and crops were destroyed and stolen, as were the stock and all personal property. It was not until as a boy of 17, however, that he came to Clinton with his parents. As a young man he became a member of the Baptist Church, where he was very active and a regular attendant until recent years. March 4th, 1891, Mr. Callaway and Miss Norah Evick, a daughter of John Allen Evick, then of Ohio but a native of Virginia, were united in marriage and two sons blessed their union, John Barton, born in 1902, and Jerry, born the next year. These two boys were always very close to their father, as his greatest happiness and their companionship, as years began to crowd aside many other activities, has been a relation of comfort and beauty. It was even in keeping with this companionship that his last afternoon was spent with his son, John. Mr. Callaway, up from his hours of sleep, was working about the yard when John Barton came to see him and Mrs. Callaway, and the first greeting of his father was followed by the suggestion that they have a hunt as the day was so fine. Mr. Callaway's love of the hunt and his knowledge of wood lore and craft was one of his dominant traits and had earned for him among his friends the name of "Trapper." This name was no more characteristic than "Old Faithful," however, as his intimates called him, for he was loyal and faithful to every friend throughout the years and a true blue Democrat of the finest stamp. He was a man of simple tastes, devoted to his family, fair and honest in his dealings. He had served his party in many capacities, being city marshal, special police, also acted as night watchman the last ten years or longer. In many minor capacities he also served them and his work was always valued. In his early years in Clinton he was associated in the meat business with his father and later operated a large market on the south side of the square, many years, and was recognized as an authority in his business. In years since, men who were proud of their smoke houses and cured rare meats asked his advice and often sought his help. Mr. Callaway, good and kindly, a man a community regrets to lose, is mourned by his devoted wife, his sons and half-sister, Mrs. Mason Anderson.

CALLAWAY, Nora EVICK
1869-1937
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
The soul of Mrs. John Callaway returned to the Home of its Creator at 7:30 a.m. Monday, from St. Joseph's hospital in Kansas City, where she underwent a hernia operation ten days ago. She had been in failing health for some years with a complication of diseases. She spent a week at the home of her cousin, Mrs. Ted Snyder in Kansas City before going to the hospital and, deeming her operation minor, took a local anesthetic. She suffered intensely, as the operation was more severe than anticipated, and a ruptured heart was the immediate cause of death, though she was thought better Friday when Mrs. Snyder and Mrs. Eagle (the former Miss Mary Virginia Callaway) last visited her. Miss Nora Evick was born August 10, 1869, in Lawrence County, Ohio, one of eight children of Mr. and Mrs, John Allen Evick. She later came to Missouri with her parents, who settled on a farm near Calhoun. Her brothers and sisters all made their homes in Oregon, where they are still living, with the exception of one sister, who died there last October just two weeks after the tragic death of Mr. Callaway, September 30, which was such a severe shock to his wife. March 4, 1891, Miss Evick and John Thomas Callaway were united in marriage at her father's farm residence, two miles south of Calhoun and came to Clinton to establish their home, where Mr. Callaway was in business, and where they had since resided. They were given two sons, John Barton, of Clinton, and Jerry, of the home, both of whom have lived in Clinton, being a source of comfort and help to their parents as years accumulated over them. Mrs. Callaway was devoted to her family, ambitious for her boys, an unassuming, rather retiring woman, a member of the Baptist church. Her life centered around her home which, without her guiding hand, will be empty and as a ship without a rudder. Her two sons, who alone survive her, have the sympathy of many friends. The funeral services were Wednesday at the First Baptist church. Consalus and Peck in charge.

Lieut. Commander William F. Callaway, who was on inspection duty with the ill-starred submarine, was born in Clinton, Mo., where his parents live. He and his family have been friends of the Dickinson's for many years.

His father, Jerry Callaway, has been sheriff of my county for two terms, and his grandfather before him as sheriff of that county for two terms. Two of his brothers read law in my office. One of them now is in the Philippines. The youngest Callaway boy is in Annapolis naval academy on my own appointment. Commander Callaway called on me just a few days ago. Naturally, I am suffering a good deal of anxiety. I am hopeful the relief work will be effective in time to save the crew. - LIEUT. COM. W. F. CALLAWAY, OR "JACK" OF CLINTON, IN SUBMARINE DISASTER, Clinton MO - All Clinton mourns with Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Callaway of Clinton, on account of the boat disaster, on which their son Jack is probably trapped and dead. For the past two years, Jack has been on the Board of Inspectors at Washington, D.C., and he inspected and tested submarines. He had been out on the S-4, and they were within 1800 yards of the harbor and about ready to come up, when a revenue cutter or harbor patrol boat swept over them very rapidly, causing the submarine to sink. Six men were alive for awhile, and all hoped one might be Jack, but at the time of going to press, his parents here had about given up hope. Jack was 38 years old, and he leaves his parents in Clinton; his wife, who was Miss Dorothy Brown, of St. Louis, before her marriage, and seven year old son, W. F. Jr. Also four brothers - Cleve in Manilla, P.I.; James Callaway, Burlingame, Cal.; Peyton Callaway, Annapolis Military Academy, and Buster at home. All extend sympathy to these bereaved ones, who are anxiously awaiting a shadow of hope. - S-4 HOPE IS SLIM, Provincetown MA, Dec 20 1927 - A faint glimmer of hope tonight relieved the growing depression in the minds of those seeking to rescue six men entombed in the sunken submarine S-4. After hours of silence on the part of the imprisoned men had all but convinced the listeners above there would be no further signals from the wreck, the oscillator of the sister ship at 6 o'clock tonight registered seven faint tapping sounds. Naval men would not assert the taps were made by a chipping hammer in the hands of a survivor of the S-4 collision. They said the sounds "Might have come" from the S-4, but even that slight encouragement renewed hope a little. The elements appeared to have turned the scale against the rescuers and those they strove to save. While precious hours passed, and the signals tapped out by the imprisoned men grew fewer, the northwest gale continued to whip up the water off this harbor, cutting off all salvage attempts. The gale continued tonight, preventing any one of the more than a score of divers aboard the mine sweeper Falcon, flagship of the salvage fleet, from descending to the wreck. The mine sweeper Falcon, flagship of the salvage fleet, came into Provincetown harbor for a short time late today, to make a change of personnel. About thirty of those on board were transferred and their places were taken by twenty-five experienced deep sea divers. Some of these were naval reservists. Veteran divers, some of whom had worked in the S-51 operations, said frankly there was "not a chance" for the six men left on the S-4. These said that even if it were possible to lower oxygen and food to the vessel, the result would be merely to prolong the agony of the imprisoned men. The spot off Wood End, where the S-4 went down, is a rough piece of water, and there is little hope of suitable weather for salvage work before next summer, the divers said. They said there was no other method of rescuing the men than by raising the hull from the bottom.

CALLEN, Delbert J.
1903-1942
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - D. J. Callen, Prominent Clintonian Dies Monday - Blood Clot, Following Double Pneumonia, After Tonsil Operation Proves Fatal to Valued Business Executive. - Early Monday afternoon, November 16, 1942 the Grim Reaper closed the account of one of Clinton's most outstanding and valued business men. Removing the name of Delbert J. Callen from earthly scrolls, Death has claimed not only a business man of importance but one whose church affiliations, school board associations and families ties had given him the best things in life for which a man can live. His life was one that had been exemplary in every respect, and of such far reaching good and constructive influence that his loss is generally mourned and leaves a void among his fellow townsmen which none can fill. Delbert J. Callen was born October 21, 1903 near Fairview in Okla., the son of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Callen, who came to Missouri when he was but a small child to make their home in the Hortense community of Henry County. When Delbert was about 11 years of age, his father bought the general store at Shawnee Mound and there young Delbert had his first business training. He graduated from the Shawnee Mound High School in 1923 as valedictorian of his class, and loved by his classmates with whom, when he was even out of school, he kept up pleasant relations and an interest that built warm and lasting adult friendships. After some study at the Warrensburg Teachers College, he taught at the Hickory Grove School in northeast Henry County two years during which time he also kept active his interest in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Shawnee Mound where he taught a young people's class and was also an elder. Mr. Callen began his work with the Reliance Coal Co., in May 1925 first as an assistant, then as cashier of the company. This position he retained even after it became the Crowe Coal Co., and continued as such until his untimely death. He had undergone a tonsillectomy in Kansas City October 3, following which after a few days at home and a day at his office he was forced to return to the hospital, double pneumonia developing. A blood clot in his leg finally caused his death, as in the sluffing off particles reached his heart. September 20, 1925 Miss Stella Gildersleeve, a school day sweetheart and a daughter of well-known Shawnee Mound family, became his wife. Two children were born to their happy and ideal union a son, Harlan Francis, now 11 years old and Kenneth Eugene, four. Harlan having attended the Second Street Methodist Church and joining there, his family also became members in 1941 and have continued substantial and enthusiastic supporters, for Mr. Callen was essentially a Christian at heart as is the noble woman whom he chose so wisely to walk at his side, and with him to inculcate Christian ideals in the hearts of his sons. Gifted with unusual business acumen, he was recognized as one of the most outstanding men his company had ever known. His loss to them is known to be as deeply felt as to the community at large, where he stood like a mighty oak in the forest whose fall leaves a vast open space against the sky. Mr. Callen was elected secretary of the Clinton School Board in the early summer of 1934 and had since continued to serve the schools in this capacity with a great skill and interest and he was felt by his fellow workers to have no equal in the state of Missouri. With a marvelous mind for business he applied all his ability to the success of his chosen field and was early recognized as a man of not only the highest principles but one of almost limitless capacity. Surviving with his wife and sons are his aged father, F. M. Callen, who is ill at the Clinton General Hospital; his sisters, Mrs. Lee Gildersleeve of Leeton; Mrs. John Wade of Shawnee Mound and one brother Edgar F. Callen of Clinton and three nieces, Miss Frances Lee Gildersleeve of Clinton, who has been his efficient secretary the past three years, Mrs. Wayne Barton of Kansas City and Miss Betty Lou Wade of Shawnee Mound. Funeral services were conducted at the Second Street Methodist Church Wednesday. The body was laid to rest in Englewood.

A conscientious leader in the home, whose path would never lead astray. Conscious to the last, a heroic life has passed on. Her last words were Don't keep me here longer, let me go home. A woman of quiet dignity, ever courteous and thoughtful of others, and so brave in spite of her suffering she tried to the last to spare her relatives and friends the pain of her going. Always so bright and cheerful, glad to see her friends and relatives who came from far and near to see her. She was a faithful wife, always ready to give a loving helpful hand to her husband, and filling every place as a mother to all her children; what greater monument could be erected to her memory.

Her prayers had been answered in that she had lived to see all her children educated sufficiently to take care of themselves. She was greatly loved in her community in which she lived and leaves many memories of her good deeds which will strengthen the struggling heart for better things. Her very presence was a benediction, and when she passed away it was like the ceasing of exquisite music; its harmonies will not end because she will no longer tred the paths of earth, nor fell her own or others sorrows, but in that better land she will still find comfort in the life whose goodness began on earth. In her footsteps none need fear to walk. There was never a time she was too weary to help others. During the late European war she worked unceasingly with the Red Cross and received a badge of service. The funeral services were conducted at the home, after which the body was laid to rest in the Sardis Cemetery where a short service was conducted by the Eastern Star of which the deceased was an officer and faithful worker.

He was trapped in the log cabin, his living quarters, which caught fire and the body was found near the door which it is thought he reached, but was unable to make his escape. The exact time and circumstances were unknown at press time. Mrs. Calvird who had been two weeks with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Gillilan, at Urich, and Mrs. Frank Calvird of the Mount Carmel neighborhood, had left an hour before the message was received to return to Ellington.

CALVIRD, Enid
1882-1931
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Miss Enid Calvird, daughter of Judge and Mrs. C. A. Calvird, and teacher of history in the Clinton High School for twenty-four years, died at the home of her parents in Clinton Sunday evening, November 22, at half-past nine. Miss Calvird was taken ill October 28. From the first her physicians recognized the serious character of her illness, and Dr. Bohon of Kansas city was called in consultation. He confirmed the fears of the local physicians, but they and her family continued a desperate battle to save her life. A newly discovered serum was ordered from Philadelphia, where it had been used with good results, but its employment during the last week failed to stay the course of Miss Calvird's malady. Miss Enid Calvird was born in Clinton and received her early education in the Clinton elementary and high schools. She was graduated from the high school in 1900 as the salutatorian of her class and spent another year there in post graduate study. In 1901-02 Miss Calvird taught in the Windsor high school. She was elected a teacher in the Clinton schools in 1902, assigned to Jefferson Park, and taught there until the fall of 1907, when she was transferred to the eighth grade room at the old Franklin school. She did not teach a full year in this grade for in January, 1908, she was promoted to the high school faculty, succeeding Miss Maud Owen, as teacher of history. Miss Calvird was a graduate of the University off Chicago and spent last summer in post graduate study there, working on her master's degree. She was a hard worker and a constant student and was an authority in the field of history, which was her specialty and lifelong study. She was recognized as one of the ablest and most valuable of the Clinton teachers. Miss Calvird was esteemed and beloved by her students. They bear testimony that her classes were always interesting. Her wide knowledge, her travels, and her enthusiasm made her department one of the best in the high school for developing a desire for learning and an appreciation of our country, its history, and its institutions. Her students were proud of her ability and scholarship. At the annual school banquets no teacher received a more hearty acclaim than Miss Enid. Miss Calvird was prominent in the social life of the community. She had a happy and sociable disposition and was competent in the conduct and ordering of whatever undertaking she turned her hand to. From the first she had the principal part in the management of the Junior-Senior banquet of the high school. Among her friends and acquaintances Miss Calvird was proverbial as a good daughter and an affectionate sister. Her family feelings were strong, and it was characteristic of her that they were continually expressed by kindly acts and services. The funeral was held at the M. E. Church, South, Tuesday afternoon. Miss Calvird had been ill about three weeks. When she did not make a proper recovery Drs. Walker and Insley called a Kansas City specialist in consultation, who pronounced her illness agionulocytic angina, an infection of the mouth, which is very rare, first reported in medical journals in 1926. He also stated that it had proved fatal to most of its victims, as it destroys the white corpuscles of the blood. The new serum that had recently been developed, was brought by aeroplane, but proved ineffective. Miss Calvird had had exceptionally good health all her life until last year, when she had an attack of influenza. Her recovery was slow and this perhaps weakened her resistance.

Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Nov 12 1953 - Mrs. Flavia Calvird Dies At The Age of 98 - She Was Widow Of The Late Judge Chas.

Mrs. Flavia Ann Calvird, the widow of Charles A. Calvird, Sr., died at Clinton, Missouri, on November 6, 1953. She had recently passed her 98th birthday. Mrs. Calvird was a daughter of James Madison Lindsay and Nancy L. Lindsay. Her father was born in Rockingham County, North Carolina in the year 1817 and her mother, whose maiden name was Nancy C. Stone, was born in the same county on January 27, 1820. Mrs. Calvird's parents were a part of a considerable number of people who came out to Missouri from North Carolina in the year 1839 and settled in Henry County and other counties of Missouri. Her father and his brother, Reuben Taylor Lindsay settled six miles north of Clinton where they patented from the United States Government large tracts of land. It was on the land of her father that Flavia Ann Lindsay was born in September 22, 1855. Here the family lived through the four stormy years of the war between the states. Here Mrs. Calvird spent her childhood. Her father died near the close of the war and she and her mother left the farm in the spring of 1867 and moved to Clinton. There were no public schools in Clinton at that time, but a Miss Marvin conducted a private school on North Washington Street and Mrs. Calvird attended this private school. From 1870 to 1874 she attended Central College, a Methodist school for young women at Lexington, Missouri, where she graduated in the spring of 1874. This school has long since been discontinued. On March 30th, 1881, she was united in marriage with Charles A. Calvird, a young lawyer, who had come to Clinton to engage in the practice of law. Her husband died in April of 1936. To this union were born two children, Enid Calvird, a teacher in the Clinton High School for many years until her death in 1931, and Charles A. Calvird, Jr. a Clinton attorney who survives her. For 80 years Mrs. Calvird lived in one house, her home property at 303 North Second Street, Clinton, Missouri. She was a member of the Methodist Church. Prior to the merger of the three branches of this church Mrs. Calvird had been a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, since the reorganization of that church in Clinton, in the year 1867. She was a devout woman, an ardent church worker during her active years, and took a great interest in her church and in its activities. She was a tireless Bible student, read it daily as long as her eyesight permitted, since which time her son has read it aloud to her in its entirety. Until later months as her memory failed, she could repeat from memory many of its chapters. She owned two Bibles of unusual interest by reason of their age, one of which contained the family record extending back to 1767. Mrs. Calvird was the wife and mother of circuit judges. Her husband was judge of the 29th Judicial Circuit of Missouri from 1910 to 1928 and her son was judge of the same circuit from 1935 to 1941. Mrs. Calvird is survived by her son, Charles A. Calvird, two nieces, Mrs. Minnie Kitchen and Mrs. Josephine Hackman, both of Webster Groves, Missouri, and several hundred relatives in Henry and adjoining counties, the descendants of those who, with her parents, came out to settle in Missouri more than a century ago.

Cecil Dwight Cameron, son of Allen Delos and Mary Hine Cameron, was born May 28, 1872, seven miles northeast of Clinton. There he was reared with six brothers and sisters in the careful nurture of a devout Methodist home and with a love of the land and a skill with livestock that was destined to make him one of the leading agriculturists and Shorthorn breeders of Henry county. As a boy he attended the Lewis School and later went to Warrensburg where he studied at the old Normal. Early in life, too, he became a member of the Drakes Chapel congregation where his membership remained. He served his church in many capacities during the years being Sunday School superintendent, a steward and trustee, valued by the congregation, neighbors and friends for the fine and stalwart character he was, whose honor was above reproach and whose integrity was beyond question. His dealing with all men was fair and just and his word was authority and always kind. He was the type of man in whom the simple attribute of worth and true nobility of character flourished to full flower and he enjoyed the respect and love of all who knew him. Mr. Cameron lost his father as a boy of 12 and on his young shoulders fell the responsibility of managing the farm and looking after the family. He was never known to slight a hard task in fact, he embraced it, and proved himself to be a genius with livestock and the land. Fine horses were his interest, second only to the Shorthorn cattle he raised, and success crowned his effort. Dec 28, 1898 Miss Jessie Hazard became his wife and they established their home just across the road from her husband's birthplace. Four sons were born to their happy union. Hine, now of Maryville; Howard, Kansas City, John, Clay Center Kan.; and Dwight the only one who has his father's love for farming. He now resides near the old home. The sons survive with their mother. Also five grandchildren, who were Mr. Cameron's great comfort and pleasure. Funeral services will be Wednesday afternoon at Drakes Chapel. The body will be laid to rest in Drake's Chapel Cemetery.

After she graduated from Clinton High School in 1929 and completed teacher's training, she taught in several one-room country schools. She liked to remind her family how she walked through the snow for miles, built the fire in the wood stove to warm the school room, did all the janitor work and taught eight grades for $35 a month. In later years, it wasn't unusual for Ethel to receive visits and phone calls from former pupils. In 1936, Ethel retired from teaching and married Allen Dwight Cameron. To this union one daughter, Maril Rae was born. Ethel was a natural born homemaker and as long as she was able she put on a big garden, canned all summer, made nice clothes for herself and Maril, and kept a spotless house. Religion was very important to her. She was active in WSCS - now UMW. She held a district office and was willing to help in any way. After moving to Clinton in 1960, she joined the Junior Poly Credo Bible Club. The friends she had in both organizations were special to her. She attended Drakes Chapel Methodist Church her entire life and never wanted to miss a Sunday. After Dwight stopped driving she was always so happy when Susan, Renee or Crystal would drive them to church. Even though she had braces on her legs and used a walker, she was always ready to go to Drakes Chapel. Ethel was so proud of her grandchildren. When Troy and Tracy would visit her as children she played with them for hours and rarely missed sending them home with homemade cookies. Later she loved seeing her great great-granddaughters. She insisted on having them placed in her lap so she could hug them and read stories. She kept little books in a drawer by her chair just for that purpose. In the last few years, caregivers Lorraine Rattiff, Susan Ebeling (Kemper), Sharon Camden, Anita Slocum, Jane Greer, Louise Johnson and Cindy Dodd added sunshine to her life. After Dwight's death in July 1999, Ethel decided to move to Clinton Residential Care Center. She loved it there and made many friends. She continued to attend church regularly, accompanied by caregivers Lorraine, Jane, Louise and Cindy. However, she reached the point where she couldn't walk any longer, so she moved to Clinton Healthcare in February 2000.

He was a 32nd. degree Scottish Rite Mason, and belonged to the Medinah Temple Shrine, also was past patron of the Order of the Eastern Star. He held a life membership in the Chicago Art Institute. June 15, 1904, Benjamin Campbell married Pearl Cheatham, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Claude Cheatham east of Clinton, and for twenty years had a happy married life, then she was carried to the great Beyond in 1924. The death of his wife was, to him, a crushing blow. They were sweethearts to the end, and while Ben Campbell bore his great sorrow in silence, his close friends knew of his great grief. He lived at the South Shore Country Club, one of the most beautiful club houses in the world. Here he was surrounded by beautiful works of art, flowers and trees, all of which he loved. He spent many hours in the library, for he was a great reader. He bought and read many books and passed them on to his family and friends with many of his own comments written on the margins, so that it added to one's pleasure to read a book he had read. He was an interesting conversationalist because he was so well informed and broad in his views. He possessed a ready wit that was delightful, because it was never caustic or biting. He was a genial host and enjoyed entertaining his many friends. He was always thoughtful and considerate of others. His remarks were always kind. He was in every sense a Christian gentleman. People who honored Ben Campbell, honored themselves. Ben Campbell was a brilliant and highly successful lawyer. His work as a lawyer took him into many parts of the United States so that he was familiar not only with the conditions existing in the great city of Chicago, but also knew of his own country. Mr. Campbell spent last winter in Florida in hope of aiding his physical recovery, and it seemed that he imbibed some of its eternal sunshine into his spirit which he shared with a great number of friends who, in his last illness, showed their appreciation of him in the mass of lowers ever present in his room. His lips spoke jestingly, despite the fact that he knew his life on earth was to be but a short time, and never a moment did he let relatives know that he knew this. In May he returned to Chicago and in June came to visit his sisters here, and his brother in Sedalia, but on account of the extreme heat, had to return to his home. Every effort was made to notify a brother in California of Mr. Campbell's serious condition, but he was on an automobile tour and could not be located. Dr. Campbell of Sedalia, was at his brother's bedside part of the time. A brief funeral service was conducted in Chicago before Mrs. J. D. Burris, who had been there the last two weeks previous to his death, returned to Clinton, bringing the body of her brother. Services were conducted Friday afternoon at the Christian church and interment made in Englewood cemetery with a Masonic ceremony. The deceased leaves two brothers and two sisters, Lee Campbell, an architect in Los Angeles, Cal.; Dr. A. J. Campbell, Sedalia; Mrs. John D. Burris and Mrs. Uel Shobe of Clinton. One brother Dr. W. R. Campbell died in 1923.

CAMPBELL, Frank
1869-1936
Good Hope Cemetery, Bethlehem Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton, MO, Sep 17 1936 - Frank Campbell died after a few minutes illness at his home at 731 East Lincoln Street at 7:15 am Monday. He arose as usual at five, built a fire and put water on the stove for coffee. A few minutes later his wife heard him breathing heavily and complaining of illness. A doctor was summoned at once, who started to call another doctor, but Mr. Campbell had passed to life eternal. Mr. Campbells daughter Zeta, now Mrs. Sidney Montgomery, and her husband, of Kansas City, were both at the home and gave all assistance they could to ease this beloved fathers last minutes as did a son, Donald, who lives at home. Though he had had a sick spell in January from which he had never fully recovered, Mr. Campbell had done a full days work each day all spring and summer. Sunday, Mr. Campbell attended Pioneer Day services at the Baptist church, both morning and evening and kept his wife laughing on the way home with his Irish wit, so they had had no indication of how near the Death Angel was hovering. Frank Campbell, born December 26, 1869, on a farm three-fourths mile southeast of Coal, was united in marriage to Miss Grace Smith, March 13, 1898, by the justice of the peace at Coal, though they had planned to go to Uncle Billy Briggs but the preachers wife died so they couldn't go there. A wedding dinner was served at the home of the brides parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. R. Smith, and an infair (sic) dinner the next day at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Pat Deery, parents of Mr. Campbell. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell went to housekeeping on a farm two and a half miles southeast of Coal where they lived until 1912, then moved to Clinton. Here, he went into a grocery business in partnership with Joe Julian in a building on North Main Street, where he continued two years. Since, then, Mr. Campbell specialized in gardening, always having the earliest and most prolific garden in the neighborhood and delighting in having the first vegetables in the spring and the latest in the fall, all of which he was ever generous in sharing with neighbors and friends. Both of his parents were born and raised in Ireland, but were married after coming to the United States, returning to Ireland for their honeymoon. From them, Mr. Campbell inherited a ready wit, a jolly disposition that refused to accept misfortunes but rallied immediately from every adverse blow that Fate aimed at him. He enjoyed his wife and children and each of them was as good-natured and filled brimful of good spirits as he was, as together they had a life full of laughter. Generosity and a kindness of heart, together with a jest and merry word for all characterized Mr. Campbell. His Christianity was sincere and a fundamental part of his life, as he joined the Good Hope Church when he was converted in 1910 and attended church and Sunday school regularly. His fine principles of Christian living and righteousness were instilled in his children, of whom he was the father of 12. Through them, he gave abundantly to the nation, for such fine characters are the backbone of the countrys progress. His widow has eight children to comfort her: Clyde, Muskegon, Mich.; Mrs. M Parks (Ruth), Bismarck, N. Dak.; Mrs. Sidney Montgomery (Zeta), Kansas City; Mrs. Jack Willard (Hazel), Downs, Kans.; Harl Campbell, Lexington, who is assistant manager in a Montgomery Ward store; Mrs. B.J. Caughell (Audra), Britton, Okla.; Carl and Donald, Clinton. A son, Earl, and daughter Edra (sic) died in 1930, and another little daughter, Pat, before that. Grandchildren are Joe and Paul Parks, Bismarck; Carol, Patty, and Eugenia Grace Caughell, Britton; Jack and Joe Willard, Downs; Patsy Campbell, Muskegon; Bobby Montgomery, Kansas City; Dixie and Gene Campbell, Clinton, all of whom loved and adored their granddad and were the delight of his heart. Mr. Campbell also leaves two brothers, John Campbell, Porterville, Calif., and Edward, Letcher, S. Dak. Funeral services were conducted Wednesday at the First Baptist Church in Clinton. Burial was in Good Hope cemetery beside his relatives.

CAMPBELL, Frank
1830-1880
Good Hope Cemetery, Bethlehem Twp, Henry Co, MO
Henry County Democrat, Clinton MO, Mar 18 1880 - From Mr. A. J. Baker, who was in Clinton yesterday, the Democrat learns of a sad and lamentable accident, resulting in the death of an old and highly respected citizen. Monday evening, Mr. Frank Campbell, who resided on his farm about one-half mile from Colesburg, this county, was kicked in the stomach by a cow while engaged in milking. Mr. Campbell did not regard the kick as serious, but finished his milking and feeding. When he returned to his home he told his wife what had occurred, and soon began to vomit blood and complain of severe pains. These continued at close intervals and seemed to become gradually more prostrating. Becoming alarmed, Mrs. Campbell, sent for Dr. Brumfield without the knowledge of her husband. The Doctor administered such medicine as he believed the patient required, and called probably the third time. Yesterday he had left the house only about half hour before Mr. Campbell's death, as had also Messrs. Turner and Garrett, his neighbors. A few minutes before noon, Mr. Campbell called his wife and asked: "What is the matter with me?" and soon died. The sad information was at once sent to his neighbors, and when Mr. Baker reached the house he had been preceded by Messrs. Hall and Garrett. Mr. John Maginnis accompanied Mr. Baker to Clinton yesterday evening, where they procured a coffin and burial clothing. No post mortem examination was made, but it is presumed death resulted from rupture caused by the kick. The deceased was a native of Ireland and settled on his farm about 1856. About ten or twelve years ago he went to Ohio where he was married. He was industrious, straight forward in business, a kind neighbor and dutiful husband. He leaves a wife and five children to mourn his sudden death. The family have no relatives in the county. The remains were interred today.

CAMPBELL, Hattie Belle TRACY
1925-2010
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jun 14 2010 - Hattie Belle Campbell (Tracy), daughter of Michael John Tracy and Violet Rosena (Curtis) Tracy, was born at the home of her parents in St. Joseph on October 6, 1925. She departed this life on June 16, 2010, at the age of 84 years, eight months and 10 days. She was educated in the public schools of St. Joseph through high school. On April 29, 1943, she was united in marriage to Elmer Haven Campbell by her brother-in-law, Emery Benjamin, in St. Joseph. To this union three children were born, Donald H. Campbell of Warsaw, Robert M. Campbell of Hazelwood and Bruce A. Campbell of Wright City. Mother, father, six sisters and one brother preceded her in death. Surviving are two sisters, Mrs. Betty Wray of Lee's Summit and Mrs. Elnora Polleck of Faucett; three children, six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. E. A. Gurwell and W. O. Webb blessed Hattie on December 6, 1931, in St. Joseph. She was baptized into the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints by E. A. Gurwell in St. Joseph on December 3, 1933, and confirmed by E. A. Gurwell and J. L. Bear. She was always a strong church member, a good steward of time, talent and money, charitable with the church and those she loved and always a strong defender of faith. Hattie's heritage was historically rooted in the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Her great-grandfather, Elder Charles A. Bishop, was one of the founders of the RLDS Church in St. Joseph and the donator of the land which is now occupied by the Stone Church lawn and Education Building in Independence. Charles was a grading contractor -- donating the excavation work and considerable monetary support for the famous Stone Church in independence. The church honored Charles Bishop and his wife, Anna, for their services by having their names implanted in two stained-glass windows free. Other noted members were required to pay for this honor. On the other side of the family, her great-great-great-grandfather, Thomas Curtis, joined the church in New York state in October 1830 when there were less than 80: members. He helped build Kirkland Temple and died en route from Kirtland to Far West, Missouri. Thus like one of the early Apostles said, "She fought the good fight, she has kept the faith; but, most important she instilled this faith in her children who are active in church today." Funeral services were held at Vansant-Mills Chapel, Clinton, on Monday, June 21. Interment was in Englewood Cemetery.

CAMPBELL, Martha VINCENT
1852-1934
Raymore Cemetery, Raymore, Cass Co, MO
Raymore MO - Mrs. Joseph A. Campbell passed away suddenly at the family home south of Raymore last Friday afternoon. Her death was a shock to her family and friends as she had apparently recovered from a critical illness suffered early in the spring. On the day of her death she apparently was as well as usual and her daughter Miss Ruth and her grandson Joe Cook went in the city where they spent the day shopping. On there return they found her suffering intensely with the heat as she had gone to the strawberry patch and gathered berries for the evening meal, thinking to have the meal prepared by the time her daughter came home. Mrs. Campbell was seated on the porch when her daughter and grandson returned and the daughter left her there and went about the evening work. When supper was ready she went to the porch to call her mother and found Mrs. Campbell was not there, going to her mothers bedroom, Miss Campbell found her mother sitting in a chair dead. Death had come quickly and painlessly. The passing of Mrs. Campbell marked the close of a long and useful life. She was born January 26, 1852 in Fayette County, Ohio and at the time of her death was aged 82 years, 4 months, 5 days. She was the youngest and last child of Stephen and Jemmina Vincent. Her girlhood was spent in the home of her parents where she lived the normal life of such a girl of that period, receiving such education as her time and community afforded. The service of her life was preeminently that of a mother in the home. On January 1 1874 she was married in her native county to Joseph A. Campbell with whom she shared the joys and sorrows of life for more than sixty years. To them were born 10 children, all of who lived to maturity. Two daughters Mrs. Anna Hodkins and Mrs. Ethel Cook preceded there mother in death. The children surviving are: Jesse, Fran and Arch all of Kansas City, Bert of Deepwater, Mrs. Lizzie Hodkins of Independence, Mrs. Lida Carrothers of Elk City, Oklahoma and Miss Ruth and John of the home. Besides rearing her large family Mrs. Campbell had the rearing of two grandchildren, Denzil and Joe Cook, whose mother died when they were very young. To them she was a real mother. Mrs. Campbell was a early settler in this community. She and her husband came to this community fifty years ago and lived here ever since, partaking of the varying conditions of life. Here most of her children were born and grew to maturity. Mrs. Campbell no doubt had her share of disappointment and pain, but her nature grew and sweetened with the years. When she was in the hospital for a major operation several years ago she was known as the "sweet faced, white haired lady". Mrs. Campbell became a Christian early in life. Soon after coming to Raymore she and her husband united with the Presbyterian Church, later transferring their membership to the United Brethren Church, which has been their church home for 35 years. During these years none was more faithful to their church as Mrs. Campbell. All who knew her loved her, it was a privilege to be her friend and the community was enriched by the richness of her life. The entire community mourns the loss of this good woman, but the chief mourner is her husband of sixty years who survives her. She was the grandmother of twenty-seven and the great-grandmother of ten, all of whom are living. A mother of Israel, indeed! The funeral service was held at the united Brethren Church in the presence of a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends, Sunday afternoon. The pallbearers were six grandsons, Maurice Hodkins, Harlie Hodkins, Lee Hodkins, Harold Hodkins, J.C. Campbell, and Irwin Campbell. Burial was in the family plot in Raymore Cemetery.

CANNON, John Henry
1837-1906
Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Springfield Twp, Henry Co, MO
Windsor, Sep 28 1906 - Universally Deplored - Henry Cannon meets with accident at Fair Grounds, died Saturday morning. Friday afternoon's fair was marred to a great extent and a pall of sorrow and gloom cast over the merrymakers by the sad accident which befell Henry Cannon, an aged and highly respected resident of Roseland vicinity - an accident deeply regretted by one and all, deplorable and most unfortunate in the extreme, resulting in his death Saturday morning. Mr. Cannon was old and crippled from rheumatism, and possibly tired from standing, sat down on the track of the Shoot-the-Chutes, near the water's edge. The boats were running regularly, one having ascended not over a minute previous. At the top of the chutes is a lever to hold and start the boats, and when the boat is up, the view of the track below is partially hidden, and not until the boat had started down in rapid plunge did those in the boat notice Mr. Cannon on the track. All effort to warn him of impending danger was fruitless, as the old gentleman was partially deaf and the noise around too great for him to hear the frantic outcries. The impact was frightful and and as one gentleman pictured it, he was shot into the lake like a ball from a bat, being forced between the track and the landing through a space scarcely wide enough for a man to edge through at best, the boat striking him with tremendous force in the left shoulder and side. He was rescued quickly as possible, but apparently utterly lifeless for several minutes. Dr. Blackmore, fortunately, was close by and soon had him partially restored to consciousness, but it is thought the old gentleman never realized what hit him or the cause of his suffering, complaining only of inward pain. He was taken to the house of his brother, N. B. Cannon, on East Main Street, and all the skill and tender, loving hands could do was done for him, but without avail, passing away at 5 o'clock Saturday morning. Mr. Cannon was a bachelor, in his 70th year, a brother of "Pet", Arthur and Dallas Cannon and lived with his sister, Miss Almira Cannon. The funeral was held at Mt. Olivet Church, Sunday, burial in the church cemetery. The funeral was preached by Rev. Jenkins and is said to have been with one exception, that of Billie Gray, the most largely attended of any ever held at Mt. Olivet. In this truly unfortunate and deeply regretted death, Windsor and the entire community are alike aggrieved, would that it could be undone and the kind old gentleman restored to life and to his sorrowing relatives and friends. - Obituary: Brother J. H. Cannon was born in Graves County, Kentucky on Oct. 16th, 1837; came to Henry County, Missouri in 1839, where he remained until death. In 1854 his father died, leaving on him the dependence of the family. He joined the Mt. Olivet Church in 1859, died September 22nd, 1906. Brother Cannon lived a consistent Christian life and was one of the pillars of the church to which he belonged. He was regularly in attendance at the house of God, has always been honest in his dealings with his fellowmen and was the idol of his brother and sister. He was their counselor and brother in deed. He was highly honored by the members of his church and community. He leaves to mourn their loss, four brothers and one sister.

CANNON, Susan Almira
1852-1913
Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Springfield Twp, Henry Co, MO
The Windsorite, Aug 14 1913 - It is with sadness and sorrow that we chronicle the death of Miss Almyra Cannon. Her death was very sudden and sad. Miss Almyra had spent the day on Tebo with a lot of neighbors at a fish fry, and she was feeling as usual and enjoying the day so well that her brother had to remind her it was time to go home. After returning home, she retired to bed as usual. In a few minutes a neighbor came in to borrow some matches. She got up to get them and fell to the floor. She was carried to the bed and Dr. Finley of Leesville sent for, but in a few minutes life was extinct. Which shows that while we are in the midst of life we are in the midst of death. Miss Almyra was 61 years old and lived all her life on the place where she died. She leaves four brothers and a host of friends and relatives to mourn their loss. She was a faithful member of Mt. Olivet Church since 1879. She was indeed a good Christian lady and lived her religion every day before the world. She always had a kind word for everybody, friendly and sociable and I don't know of anyone that will be more missed than this good woman. Her funeral was preached by James Briggs, to a very large assembly of people and her remains were laid to rest in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. May we all imitate her Christian life and meet her in Heaven.

Elbert Sell and wife now live on the Carpenter farm, but nothing remains of the Carleton's first home except some large lilac bushes that were set out by her. It was at this place their sons were born. From there they moved to Leesville, where her late husband in partnership with his brother Will, had a general store for eighteen years. While in Leesville they lived in the brick house now owned by Ivan Smith, later moving to the place now owned by Jim Logan. On account of her poor health they sold their store and to be near their son Curtis, bought a farm adjoining his. Here the husband cleared the timber and erected the farm buildings.

Her love for her grandchildren was manifested in everything and she and her husband were always so happy when they were in their home. She had been in poor health for a great many years. Stomach trouble had been her main illness, but she tenderly cared for her husband during his years of declining health and passing. Since his departure she has lived in a part of her house on the farm but always said she was so lonely. Chronic bronchial trouble caused her death, which occurred at the home of her sister, Mrs. Jennie Carleton. She went there two weeks before for a visit. While there she became ill and after one week's illness in bed she died. Everything that loving hands could do was done for her comfort and recovery. She was conscious until the last moments and strength was given her to tell the loved ones standing around her bed that she knew and saw them and she could also see heaven, Jesus, her happy husband, but some faces she couldn't see. She said she was so happy and ready to go for heaven was so beautiful. She then quietly passed into Eternity. Funeral services were conducted Friday at Tebo church.

Clinton MO - R. W. Carrington, well-known Blairstown citizen, dropped dead on the sidewalk Sunday about 9 am. as he went to the lodge hall in Blairstown to build a fire for a Masonic meeting. He was taken immediately to a doctor's office, but life was extinct. Dr. W. T. Jennings, County Coroner, was called and he pronounced Mr. Carrington's death due to heart trouble, with which he had been troubled more than a year. No further investigation was deemed necessary. Robert Wiley Carrington, age 57, was born and reared in the Blairstown vicinity and kept his home there practically all his life. For many years he was salesman for a company that bought and sold hay, and during certain seasons he had to be away from home many weeks at a time, but as soon as possible he always returned to his home town to enjoy his family, his home and the wealth of friends which he possessed. When heart trouble caused his health to fail, he resigned from his salesman's position and the past year had helped with papering and painting to occupy his time. When a young man, Mr. Carrington and Miss Verna Swaggart were united in marriage and they were given two daughters, Mrs. Virgil Quillen, now of Chilhowee and Mrs. Robert Stewart, Poplar Bluff, both of whom attended the funeral with their families. Mrs. Carrington died and later he married her sister, Miss Lou Swaggart, who survives with their one son, Bobby of the home. A big, energetic man, always good-natured and happy and never complaining, Mr. Carrington made friends wherever his work took him. For many years he was a member of the Methodist Church in Blairstown, living each day of his life in a Christian way and always ready to do anything to help his church and its work. He was also a prominent Mason. He was one of a family of 10, of which two brothers and two sisters survive.

About five years ago, during a camp meeting at Lewis, she gave herself over to the Lord, uniting with the M.E. Church. Like Tabitha, she was full of all good works. She had been a long sufferer from cancer and other ailments and was confined to her bed for six weeks before the end came to relieve her of her suffering, always cheerful and full of hope and sunshine, believing that she would yet get well. After many wearing weeks, suffering had reduced her emaciated from to a mere shadow and it was not until then that she gave up all hope of ever recovering and began to confer with her husband as to the future of her little ones, who she would very soon have to leave behind. She told him to try to keep the children together if possible and, amid intense suffering, with a smile on her pallid face, she passed away, her spirit going to the god that gave it. Funeral at Drake's Chapel and burial in a cemetery nearby.

Funeral services were held February 27 at the First Christian Church, Clinton. Burial was in Clinton Memory Gardens Cemetery. Billie Carter was a good ol' boy by small town standards. A man who was always willing to do more and give more than he ever received. Billie could be described as a teacher, a leader and a person who loved to work with his hands. He particularly took pride in building cabinets and other wood projects and in working at the church, whether it was cooking and serving dinners or maintenance. He was involved in a number of community activities which included leader in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, elder of the First Christian Church, board member and chairman of many departments at the church, driving force during the building of the church, ex-POW group, member of VFW, cook and organizer of community dinners and active member of the Fair Board.

After returning home, Billie was a meat cutter at Kimball's Locker and Peckenpaugh's Grocery. He later worked at the post office where he retired after 26 years. Family was important to Billie. He visited his mother Isa daily as long as his health permitted. During his visits he would do errands and upkeep as well as share a cup of coffee. He welcomed Maurita's mother, Mattie (Martha) into their home following her husband, Fayette's sudden death in 1946. Mattie continued to live with Billie, Maurita and the family until her death in 1973. Billie was always patient, appreciative, understanding and above all, loving to Mattie.

CARTER, Mabel Lucinda
1906-1921
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - It was with sorrow last Saturday afternoon that the people of Clinton learned that Mable Lucinda Carter was dead. In fact is seemed impossible. For less than a week before we had seen her bright, happy face when out with a crowd of companions. Just after this and six days before her death she became ill with an acute attack of inflammatory rheumatism, which affected her heart. She had suffered from an attack of rheumatism about four years ago, at which time she was in such poor health that she was unable to attend school for nearly a year. This was a great regret, as she thoroughly enjoyed school and books. However her health improved and she was able to return to school and completed the 8th grade last year. She had every appearance of good health, but she was never able to play like other girls, as it affected her heart. Mable was born at Chloe, Mo., Feb. 5, 1906, being 15 years, 6 months and 1 day old. She also lived between Chloe and Brownington, moving with her parents to Clinton in 1914. She leaves to mourn her death her parents, R. H. Carter and wife, and the following brothers and sister: William E. Carter of Kansas City; Robert Carter, Mrs. W. D. Hollis, Misses Myrtle, Mildred and Elsie Carter, Clinton. Altho not very old she had given more years of service to her Master than many who have lived many times as long. She was converted in the fall of 1916, and united with the Baptist church. Since that time she had been faithful to the teachings of her church and present at every service possible. She was a remarkable student of the Sunday school class for several years and in that time she never failed to answer correctly a question on the Bible. When memory verses were given to learn, she seemed to have already known them. She was preparing for the joys of Heaven. For more than a year she was class treasurer of the Philathea class and during that time most efficiently kept the records, and the funds. She possessed a fine voice and her singing delighted all. She was an exceptional girl and it seems strange she was called away when so young, but the Heavenly Father knows best and her loved ones are comforted with the thought that they known in Whom she hath believed, and that she is now safe in the Heavenly home away from pain and suffering. The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist church Sunday. The remains were laid in Englewood.

CARTER, Martin C.
1865-1928
Fields Creek Cemetery, Fields Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Martin Carter died at his home at the Clinton Hunting and Fish Lake, at the southwest corner of the lake, just southwest of Clinton, between 6:30 and 1 a.m. last Saturday morning, blowing out his brains with a shotgun. He had been ill since May 16, 1927, with Bright's disease, heart trouble and other complications. For nearly three months he was bedfast, suffering intensely, only resting day or night under the influence of drugs. He had worried about his condition, knowing he could never be well again, but had gotten better. In fact, so much better, that he and his daughter, Miss Agnes, were staying alone, having done so for some days. He had laughed and joked the night before and had been much better, in fact, that morning was the first time he had dressed himself alone and Agnes jokingly asked him where he thought he was going. She had fixed his favorite chair and left him resting there when she started to feed her chickens, being nearly there, when she heard the gun. Knowing something was wrong she ran back to find the tragic end. She, poor child, met the terrible scene alone. She had given him devoted care every minute of his sickness, assisted by her sister and brothers. She was his homemaker, also his assistant as caretaker of the lake. He had held this position for seven years. Everything was always kept in order and young and old most carefully looked after all hours of the day and night there by him. When he was not well enough to attend to his duties Agnes filled his place. She is a fearless and tireless worker and a capable girl. His children had tried to persuade him to go to their homes and live, but he did not like to give up his work and be of no use in the world. The officers of the lake knowing how he felt, arranged so that Agnes could take care of the work, and it seemed all was well - when no doubt dread filled his mind, which had been so pain racked for so many weary days and nights, that he committed the deed. He was honest and upright in his dealings with men, who were his friends in all walks of life. He had the regard and the respect of his employers - the officers and shareholders of the Club Lake. During his last illness he confessed to believe in his Savior to Rev. A. N. Lindsey, who visited his home. He was anxious that his children should attend church. He was born in Vermont, August 12, 1865. About 39 years ago he married Miss May Frances Woody, who died 16 years ago March 7th. After that he lived with his children until he came to the Club Lake. His married life was blessed with eight children, six of whom survive as follows: Ora and Ernest Carter, who live northwest of Clinton; Henry Carter, who lives on South McLane street; Philip Carter and Mrs. C. S. Middaugh, who live near Golden Gate. Miss Agnes Carter, at home. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Mary Buttener, of Springfield. The body was brought to Sims-Wilkinson undertaking rooms and prepared for burial and taken Sunday afternoon to Field's Creek church, where the services were conducted. Interment in the cemetery near by.

She is survived by her husband, Galen Carter of the home; her son, Kenneth Carter and wife, Kelly, Lee's Summit; her grandson, Kason Carter; her mother, Delores Kehm of Clinton, and four sisters, Jackie Caldwell, Kathy Breshears, Jody Cosens and Kenna Moore, all of Clinton. As a child she grew up in Fair Oaks, California. However, her life changed forever when she and her family moved to Clinton in 1967. As everyone here knows, Nancy was full of life and what she loved best about life was her family and her many friends here in Clinton. Little did Nancy or anyone else know when she arrived in Clinton more than 40 years ago, what a wonderful life lay ahead of her. It was here in Clinton she graduated from high school in 1968. It was here in Clinton that she met Galen and where they were married in 1969. It was here in Clinton where she gave birth to her first son, Scott Glen Carter, who passed away shortly after birth. It was also here where her son, Kenny, was born in 1971. As Kenny grew older and began participating in youth sports, Nancy and Galen enjoyed nothing more than spending time with Kenny and his friends, watching and cheering as he played baseball, football and other sports. However, Kenny and Nancy didn't stop when his sports activities ended after high school. Through the years, Kenny and Nancy traveled together far and wide to Nebraska and Missouri football games, as well as several U.S. Open Tennis Tournaments in New York City. At one point, she and Kenny even set a goal to visit every major league baseball park! They didn't make it to all of them, but they had a great time at the ones they did visit. Nancy and Galen also loved traveling to many vacation spots and exotic locales with family and friends. Nancy didn't believe in putting off until tomorrow what you can do today. She packed a lot of living and fun into her much-too-short life. Twelve years ago, Kenny and his wife, Kelly, gave Nancy a grandson, Kason. Her love and time devoted to her family wasn't divided or shared; it just multiplied! As Kason grew and began getting involved in baseball and other sports ....well....you know the rest of the story. Nancy and her family had many great adventures traveling to dozens of great places across the United States, making many wonderful memories that Galen, Kenny, Kelly and Kason will find comfort in and cherish for the rest of their lives. Nancy loved her family and loved spending time with them. Her life was complete in them and she enjoyed her life with them to the fullest. What more can any of us ask or hope for? Funeral services were held Thursday, May 24, at the Northeast Baptist Church. Interment was in Clinton Memory Gardens, Clinton.

The Clinton Eye, Clinton MO, Friday, Jan 18 1924 - R. F. Cartt died suddenly at his home in LaDue last Saturday at 9 p.m. He had been ill for about four days with neuralgia, able to be up and about, but that night the pain struck his heart and the end came quickly. Deceased was born at Union, Ky., February 18, 1855, and was married to Miss Miranda Banda, October 24, 1883. They had resided in LaDue since 1884. The Cartts came here from Kentucky and Mr. Cartt had been teaching in the rural schools for about 40 years, many times in the same school, as he was a thorough instructor and ruled his pupils with a kindly hand, teaching them the rudiments of education. At the time of his death he was assistant cashier in the Bank of LaDue, which position he has held for some time. He was always interested in the affairs of his country and well posted on local as well as national issues. His kindly smile and hearty hand shake won and kept him friends. He was widely known and these friends, together with the Eye, extend sympathy to his beloved wife and their two sons, Elmer of Eofford, California, and Rea of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Rea and wife arrived Sunday and Elmer came in Wednesday for the funeral. He also leaves one grandchild. In the death of Mr. Cartt, Henry county has lost one of our best citizens. He was in the sixties, but had such a youthful mind and heart, he did not seem old. He was taken in his prime. May the Comforter come to his beloved -- his always inseparable companion, as well as to the the sons. The funeral services were conducted the afternoon of January 17th at the Bear Creek church. - The Clinton Eye, Clinton MO, Friday, Feb 22 1924 - MEMORIAL - Robert F. Cartt was born at Union Star, Kentucky, October 4th, 1855. Was united in marriage to Miss Miranda Banda October 24th, 1883, and died suddenly of heart trouble at 9 o'clock p.m. January 12th, 1924, aged 68 years, 3 months and 8 days. Left to mourn his departure from life is the true and faithful wife, and two manly, loving sons - Rhea E. Cartt, of Oklahoma City, and Elmer L. Cartt of Bakersfield, Cal., the only children of this happy union. Two bright little grandsons, Robert E. and Thomas E., children of Elmer L. Cartt; one brother, Leonard Cartt, of Union Star, Kentucky, and one sister, Mrs. Maggie Lawson, of Hawesville, Kentucky, also survive him. - On coming to Missouri from Kentucky in the spring of 1884, Robert F. Cartt, with his bride of only a few months, chose LaDue as his home and there he remained until called to the Home above where there shall be no more sorrow and pain. He had chosen the profession of teaching, and had taught four terms of school in Kentucky, and entering actively upon the same work here, soon rose to distinction in Henry county and has long been considered a leading educator. Having taught forty-two terms of school in this county, forty-six in all, his faithful and continued work in the profession, and all these years spent in one community, is proof of his great worth, and we shall see more plainly his many virtues as we review his career and realize that he is gone from among us. For the last few years, he had been associated with H.B. Hollopeter, in the Bank of LaDue, as assistant cashier, and there, as in every walk of life, he proved his worth as a man of sound judgment and business ability.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - James Alpha Cary was born in Clinton on June 22, 1956. He was a graduate of Calhoun High School. He passed away on November 14, 1992. He moved to California and was a plumber. In 1990 he moved back to Clinton and bought a farm. He is survived by his mother, Wilma O. Cary; sisters, Barbara J. Cary and Dona Sue Pinkston; brothers, Lewis Eugene Cary and Arthur William (Bill) Cary. He was the kind of person we all try to be. He was a warm, kindhearted, caring, and loving person. He always had a smile for everyone and enjoyed life to the fullest. He was on a very limited income, but he always found a way to give more than he had. He lived at the end of YY on a piece of land surrounded by Corps land. It was a favorite place for people to abandon their unwanted animals. Somehow these starving creatures found their way to his house. Be it a mother dog and her lone surviving pup, the others having been killed by predators, or a cat, half-blind and sick, he took them in and cared for them, spending what little money he had to feed them and give them medical attention. If he couldn't find a good home for them they became part of his loving household. A good many of the parents in town didn't know it, but they owed him a multitude of thanks. Because of where he lived, many kids would find themselves stuck in the mud at any time of the day or night. Naturally they would make their way to his house. It did not matter if it was 4 in the afternoon or, more likely, 4 in the morning. He would let them in when they knocked on the door. He would get dressed and help pull them out or take them to town. All the time he never let on just how sick he was or how much it hurt him to do this. He was just glad he could be there for them in their time of need. All the kids called him "Uncle Jimmy." He will be sorely missed in the hearts of everyone that knew him. Funeral services were Thursday, November 19, 1992, at McLane Chapel, Clinton. Burial was in Englewood Cemetery.

Though a man of affairs and of great undertakings, his associates knew him first as a Christian gentleman who carried religion into his business and took God and his conscience into all dealings. He was a soldier, having fought on the losing side from Lone Jack to Appomatox but he was just as courageous; and faithful and gentle in war as in peace and no soldier, friend or foe, ever asked to share with him the contents of his knapsack that the request was not granted. He did more than any other one man to make Henry County famous. Pictures of his pure bred shorthorn cattle adorn the walls of almost all the great hostleries in the United States where cattlemen congregate and the name of "George M. Casey, fine Short-Horn cattle, Henry County, MO." are as familiarly spoken by them as is his honesty, integrity and fair dealing, which were always subjects of remark among them. Nor was he a prophet without honor in his own country. His nearest and lowliest neighbor gives of him the same report. Had the misfortune of business overtaken him and divested him of every vestige of this world's goods, he still would have been successful and a great help to the community in which he lived. The world is richer for his having been in it.

CASHMAN, William Crawford
1833-1895
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Monday, March 11, 1895 - Squire Cashman Is Dead - A Well Known Clinton Citizen Passes Suddenly Away. Esquire W. C. Cashman is dead. This good old man who was well known to so many people in Henry county, quietly breathed his last 8 o'clock this morning. For many years his strength has been sapped by the ailments and weaknesses incident to his excessive obesity. He has long been noted as the largest man in this portion of the State, and in July, 1894, attained his maximum weight of 424 pounds. Life was almost a burden to him as the slightest exertion caused him intense suffering from an aggravated form of asthma and lung trouble. Yet he was always kindly and good natured and greeted his friends as pleasantly as of yore in spite of the tortures he must have endured. His lung trouble increased in severity, and during the past winter he has been confined to his home a large part of the time. He was not a patient man in sickness, and upon the slightest convalescence would venture out of doors, especially if the day was at all pleasant. His weight gradually decreased to about 378 pounds, which was his avoirdupois at the time of his death. Last week he went out of doors several days, and on Saturday went as far away form his home as the square-the block and a-half being quite an exertion for him under the circumstances. Sunday his trouble grew worse and he experienced great difficulty in breathing. And his death occurred suddenly and almost without any warning. W. C. Cashman was born in Breckinridge county, Ky., December 7, 1833, and was consequently 61 years, 2 months and 4 days old. In Mercer county, Illinois, on October 30, 1856, he was married to Miss Amanda Eleanor Scott, who survives him. To them were born nine children, of whom one died in Illinois and two in Missouri. Four daughters and two sons survive. He came to Missouri in 1868 and has lived here ever since. He served four terms as justice of the peace and won the respect of all during his tenure of office. His remarkable weight was acquired during the last ten years. Previous to this time when leading an active life he was noted for his bodily strength, and local annals record many incidents of his muscular prowess. The funeral services will be held at the family residence tomorrow afternoon. - Daily Democrat, Tuesday, March 12, 1895 - The funeral services over the remains of Esquire Cashman were held at the family residence on South Washington street this morning. The house and yard were filled with friends of the deceased, who assembled to pay the last tribute of respect. The ceremonies were simple and unostentatious, and at their conclusion the remains were followed to Englewood cemetery and were laid to rest. The size and weight of the deceased made it necessary for several others to volunteer their assistance in the removal of the casket, which was taken out of the house through a window, form which the sash had been removed. The casket was made to order by Undertaker W. W. Jackson, and was covered with black felt, ornamented with silver trimmings. It was the largest ever constructed or sold by Mr. Jackson in his long experience. Its dimensions were: Length at bottom, 6 feet 3 inches; length at top, 6 feet 5 inches; width 26 inches; depth 28 inches.

George, the 6th child of Fred and Lula Mae (Baumgardner) Cauthon was born on July 14, 1928 on the family farm, near Kings Prairie.  George and Mary Beth purchased George's home place in the early 1970's building a new home and providing the opportunity for daughters Bernita and Sharon to graduate, as both George and Mary Beth had, from Osceola High School. During high school, George proposed marriage to Mary Beth while riding home on the school bus.  They were married by Rev. Albert Gastin at the Osceola Baptist Church on June 4, 1949.  They were attended at their wedding by Mary Beth's sister, Lettie Mae Todd Thurman and Ted Sink.  In June, 1999 George and Mary Beth celebrated their 50th Anniversary with a reception at the Gerster Baptist Church. George served in the US Army during the Korean Conflict and was stationed in Germany.  When he was mustered out of the service, Mary Beth drove by herself to Ft. Riley, KS to pick him up.  After settling in Kansas City, George spent over 30 years working for Butler Manufacturing Company.  George mad many friends among the Butler employees and enjoyed attending the annual Butler picnics. As one of 9 children, George very much enjoyed the annual Cauthon/Baumgardner Family reunions held at various locations through the years including, while his father Fred was alive, the home place, the park in Clinton and at sister's Sara ann and Jaunita's homes. George loved to sing and grew up listening to and singing along with the Grand Ole' Opry.  He and Mary Beth and later he and Ruby, traveled far and wide to listen to blue grass music.  Their most recent trip was to Kentucky. George never attended an auction where he didn't run up the bid; never met a Democrat he didn't like, seemed to like ranching by the light of the moon and never met someone he couldn't visit with.  When the south wind blew just right on King's Prairie, neighbors could hear him calling his cattle in. Having worked hard all of his life to provide his family with all of their needs, and some of their wants, George is now at rest and is at last, at peace. Funeral services were Friday, March 26, at Gerster Baptist Church with burial in Kings Prairie Cemetery.

CHANDLER, Alvord Leonidas
1860-1938
Blairstown Cemetery, Big Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
A. L. Chandler, Blairstown, Died Last Friday - For 53 Years Head of the Lumber Company There -- Active Church Worker and in Civic Affairs -- Survived by Only Daughter -- Obsequies Last Sunday - A. L. Chandler, respected and beloved citizen of Blairstown for almost a half century, closed his eyes at the dawn of a new day Friday, July 29, and slipped to Paradise with the quiet calm that motivated his fine life. Endowed by nature with a commanding presence, his training and life further proved him the true aristocrat, courteous, kind, honorable, interested in Christian and educational development of his community. Indeed Blairstown was built by men of such a stamp as A. L. Chandler and his passing bows many a head as an honest tear is wiped from eyes made moist by the loss of this splendid citizen. His influence now but remains in spirit, yet so strong that it will still build men's lives to broader, more far-visioned heights. In the church, home, lodge, at his desk of the Hurley Lumber Company, where he spent 53 years, he held aloft the torch of noble leadership -- teaching a Bible class, serving as superintendent of the Sunday school, advancing the interests of the schools, standing for the enforcement of law and municipal growth. His influence was felt everywhere, every good phase of life in his town touched him in its course, and then flowed on, purified and strengthened by that contact. Alvord Leonidas Chandler was born in Belmont County, Ohio, January 20, 1860, the oldest of nine children, all of whom are dead except one brother, George C. Chandler, of Bellingham, Wash. When quite young he moved with his parents to Iowa where the family resided for a period of two years. They then moved to Cass county, Missouri, locating near Harrisonville where he spent most of his boyhood and grew to manhood. He attended the Warrensburg Normal, as it was then called, in 1881 and 1882, leaving school to work for the R. J. Hurley Lumber Company. He was with this company nearly 53 years, at first serving it by establishing and stocking new yards. Some of these were at Garden City, Creighton, Urich, Maurine and Blairstown. Later he became manager of the yard at Blairstown and was there until in January, 1935, when he suffered a stroke of paralysis. Since that time he had been a semi-invalid. He was married February 12, 1890, to Miss Ada Landis. To this union two children were born, Maurice D., who preceded his father in death in 1918, and a daughter, Relna, his only survivor. His wife departed this life in December, 1927. Mr. Chandler was a member of the Methodist church, having early given his life to Christian service. He was superintendent of the Sunday school for more than 20 years, and was a faithful attendant at church and Sunday school as long as his health permitted. He was a loyal, faithful husband and father, an honest, upright business man, a sincere Christian -- all of which are the marks of a true gentleman. Mr. Chandler's last years were especially blessed by the devoted care of his only daughter, Miss Relna, who some 11 years before had given up teaching at Ottawa, Kans., where she was an excellent primary instructor, to care for her mother who was then quite ill and shortly after died. She continued at home, giving every love and care to her father with whom she was beautifully congenial and happy. The Blairstown schools were particularly fortunate in having her, after a time, accept a teaching position with them, in which field she is particularly gifted.

1856-1934
Drakes Chapel Cemetery, Deer Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Citizen Struck By Car And Fatally Injured - W. E. Chapman, of Near Lewis Station, Only Lived Short Time After He Was Hit by Car When Crossing Highway at Calhoun - Death came to W. E. Chapman, well-known Lewis Station farmer, at his home north of Lewis Station at 6 p.m. Saturday, November 24, a few hours after he was struck in Calhoun by an automobile driven by an old acquaintance, Scully Mayhugh, near Calhoun. Mr. Chapman and his daughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Yount, went to Calhoun on business Saturday soon after lunch and upon arrival left their wagon just off the highway. Later, when he was nearly ready to go home, Mr. Chapman started across the highway to the Farmers' Exchange for a cream can when Mr. Mayhugh's car struck him. Although he was taken immediately to Dr. Pollard's office for treatment, and friends and loved ones gathered to give him every tender care they could, he only lived until six o'clock. He suffered, among other injuries, three broken ribs and an injured back and hip. Mr. Mayhugh has been confined to his bed with a nervous collapse since the accident and has not been told of the death of his friend. Mr. Mayhugh has been in very poor health for several months. William Edgar Chapman was born in Putnam County, West Virginia, April 1, 1856, and came to the Bear Creek neighborhood near Montrose as a lad. In young manhood, he moved to Lewis Station, where he met Laura Belle Johnson, whom he married October 20, 1878, and they spent 56 years of happy married life together. Their 56th anniversary was celebrated this fall with a dinner at their home which was attended by all their children but one. For six years after their marriage, the Chapmans lived in Lewis Station but for the past half century their home has been on their farm, 1 1/2 miles north of Lewis Station. Mr. Chapman was an excellent farmer, having an extensive knowledge of his occupation, and he made a comfortable attractive home for his family. He was most devoted to his children and gave them every possible advantage in education and the other things of life. Perhaps the greatest thing Mr. Chapman had to give to his sons and daughters was the example of a perfect Christian life that he set for them. He belonged to the Drakes Chapel Methodist church, which he joined fifty years ago and where he was a steward for many years, and a faithful attendant at the services. He worshipped the Father most sincerely by living daily as He commanded, ever ready to speak the words that would win others to the Christian way and to praise Him. His children, as a result of this early training, are all active church members. His life was devoted to his home, his God, and to his fellowman, leaving to his children a rich heritage of Christian love. To his last day, Mr. Chapman kept abreast of modern improvements and enjoyed life to its utmost. Although he no longer farmed, he made a garden each spring and usually kept the table supplied with a procession of vegetables from early spring to late fall. He also raised a flock of chickens each year. By temperament, Mr. Chapman was quiet but friendly and interested in everything about him. He went in his car to see friends and neighbors and keenly enjoyed these trips. Surviving him are his beloved companion of 56 years and their five children: Rev. F. R. Chapman of Warrensburg; R. A. Chapman of Kansas City; Mrs. Etta Clarke of Wichita, Kans., and George Chapman and Mrs. Pearl Yount, near the old home. There are also eight grandchildren, and two sisters, Mrs. Emma Dalton and Mrs. Ida Jones of Lewis Station. The funeral services were held Monday at Drakes Chapel. Burial was in the cemetery nearby under the direction of Wilkinson Funeral Service.

CHEATHAM, Jemima Jane HERST
1846-1937
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. Jemima J. Cheatham, widow of the late Claude E. Cheatham, passed to the more abundant life at 2:30 Monday, from the home of her daughter, Mrs. Joe Black, near the Sparrow store. Mrs. Cheatham, who was in her ninetieth year, had the hardihood and strength of pioneer ancestors, so her passing was a surrender of the strong and not a submission of the week. Women of her type are the exception and not the rule in the nervous, high-tensioned world of today and generations have lost some of their vital forces in the passing of such noble, Christian womanhood. Jemima Jane Herst was born December 1, 1846, in Columbia, Ky., Adair County, the child of Campbell Herst and Sally Sharp Herst, staunch Southerners, who were slave owners and people of the soil. When Jemima was a child of two years, her family moved to McDonald County, Ill., where they lived until she was ten years old. In 1856 they were lured to the west, and stopped in Missouri as they had relatives here. To the ten year old Jemima, the tedious, slow journey in two wagons, one drawn by three yoke of oxen and the other by a stout span of horses, was a trek, fraught with all the thrills and romance of real adventure. The waving prairie grass that lined their path of fell as they crushed it under foot, the wild and timid deer or howling wolves that were numerous in those early days were impressed on the mind of the child and always remained a part of the fascination of this country of which she never tired. The ferry across the Mississippi at Warsaw, Ill., and across the Missouri at Boonville were experiences that tried the courage and valor of many a pioneer family but endeared the new acres to them. As a child she attended the old pay school that lasted only a few months each winter and the singing school that were such important parts of community life. Later when the war clouds between North and South broke with three brothers in the southern army and themselves the victims of guerrilla warfare, the pictures of that memorable struggle were indelibly stamped on her memory. As a girl of 15, one day when she was alone at home with her mother, who was ill in bed, a Union Captain and 10 of his company came to their farm, demanding their dinner. The mother, unable to get up, suffered grave anxiety while her inexperienced daughter prepared and served the meal. Despite her fear, Jemima was equal to the emergency and so well did the hasty meal satisfy them that on departure they thanked her courteously. Less gratifying were the experiences with the border raids when their meat and supplies, cattle, hogs and crops were carried off by the marauders. Freedom Church was organized in 1867 when Mr. and Mrs. Herst were among its founders, being charger members and their daughter, Jemima, was one of the first to be baptized on a cold March day when one inch of ice had to be broken in the creek near Bethlehem school for the service. Among other organizers was a young man, Claude E. Cheatham, who had come to the neighborhood from Fulton, Mo., and at the singing school the romance with Jemima Jane Herst began, which culminated in their marriage October 4, 1868, on a rare Sunday in Indian summer. Rev. Wm. Birge of the New Freedom Church read the service. Mr. Cheatham was an elder in the church over 50 years and superintendent of the Sunday school many years. Theirs was a splendid Christian home, worthy of exemplification, always an inspiration to better community life. Three children blessed their union, Mrs. Ben Campbell, deceased in 1923; Mrs. Joe Black of Sparrow, with whom her mother made her home three years, and Dr. C. L. Cheatham of Clinton, Claude Edwin and Lila Jane Cheatham are the only grandchildren surviving. In the fall of 1916, Mr. and Mrs. Cheatham moved to Clinton, making their home at 613 East Grand River street adjoining the home of their son and there on June 13, 1930, Mr. Cheatham was called Home. Mrs. Cheatham continued living in Clinton till her health failed about three years ago. Her daughter was all kindness and devotion to her beloved mother, whose splendid qualities of mind and character and fine Christian principles are a priceless heritage to her children. Funeral services were Tuesday at the Consalus and Peck funeral home and the body was laid to rest in Englewood beside her late husband.

CHEATHAM, Mary ENGLAND
1877-1903
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Sept 1903 - We were sorry to hear of the death of Mrs. Harry Cheatham, which occurred at her home near Piper. She was Miss Mary England before her marriage. Her parents moved to Bethlehem township when Mary was quite young. At the death of her mother, she took upon her young shoulders all the responsibilities of her father's household but never did she falter in doing what was right. She was the idol of her father and brothers and her invalid sisters adored her. Her death was indeed sad, as she leaves three little children, one a babe nine days old, to grow to manhood and womanhood without a mother's guiding hand and love. To her husband, her death was a sad blow, as he not only had to give up his young wife and companion, who was so dear to him, but also must be separated from his little children. She said on her death bed, "We will all meet again."

Their home was blessed with three children, the oldest a girl, and the other two boys, the youngest one being a little babe but eight days old. Mrs. Cheatham united with the Christian church when she was 15 and had the Master's work ever near her heart. In her last hours, she had a clear evidence of God's mercy to her and was ready to be called. Her request was that her children might be brought up in the nuture and admonition of the Lord. Her remains were taken to Bethlehem church for services and to be laid to rest.

CHIPMAN, David
1854-1911
Avery Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Saturday, April 8, 1911, we were reminded of the uncertainty of life, that the old must and the young may be called at any time to try the realities of that country, the coast of which we are nearing day by day, to make us feel, at the close of day when the sun sinks beneath the horizon, we are one day nearer home than we've ever been before. One by one our friends are crossing over; the gush from the bleeding heart is hardly stayed, till another comes "to tear agap the healing wound afresh." Words, of mine, are inadequate to express my feelings, when going to call on my friend, David Chipman, expecting to enjoy a pleasant visit with an old pupil whom I had not seen since December, to enter his house, no crepe upon the door to warn me and find him a corpse. I visited awhile with the heartbroken widow, then returned to my home, a sadder if not a better man. David Chipman, the subject of this sketch, is a native Missourian, born in Lafayette county, July 4, 1854, lacking from April 8th to July 4th of being fifty-seven years old. The intimacy of a teacher with a kind, polite and studious pupil can only be appreciated by those who have sustained a like relation, suffice it to say that a close intimacy has subsisted between us unbroken, till death brought the change, the parting of ways. David was a good man, a kind friend, an excellent neighbor, an intelligent businessman, one who was loved by all who knew him. He was married to Miss Mary Avery Dec. 20, 1882. To this union were born three children, Avery, who died in boyhood, a nameless child died in infancy, and Gertrude, who survives him. The Chipman family moved to Henry county in 1867, the writer taught in that district in 1872, when this pleasant acquaintance began and this sacred fellowship awakened. A few friends assembled at the residence to pay their last sad token of respect on the morning of the 10th, at which the Rev. James A. Challenner read the scriptures and prayed, then Rev. L. H. Eakes of the M. E. South, church, preached a sermon of warm sympathy and consolation, after which the remains were taken to the Avery burying grounds for interment. We close by extending to the stricken wife and daughter our deepest and heartfelt sympathy and prayers in which we believe the entire community will join. - W. T. Shivel

CHRISMAN, Bert Ambrose
1920-2004
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Mar 17 2004 - Bert Ambrose Chrisman died February 2, 2004, at Golden Valley Hospital following a courageous 12-year battle with cancer. He was just six days shy of his 84th birthday. Born on a farm near Harrisonville to Josie and Ambrose Birtrus Chrisman February 8, 1920, Bert was the seventh of eight children. His years on the farm brought him great joy in spite of three to four hours of chores before riding his horse to school several miles away. Brothers Dale, Alva, Clyde and Jimmy, and sisters, Connie, Opal and Mildred, rounded out this happy and hard-working farm family. On the farm, Bert breathed the grit of the Dust Bowl and lived leanly through the Depression years. Moving from the farm to Clinton at about age 15, he attended the old Clinton High School and was a 1937 graduate. Following graduation, Bert attended the Rolla School of Mines before joining the service where he served in the Philippines as a sergeant in the proud and brave 1st Calvary. As a pioneering and demolition specialist who was exposed to hostile fire, he was offered a battlefield commission to 2nd Lieutenant, but elected to return home to his family. It was in these early years - December 25, 1940, to be exact - that he married his childhood sweetheart, Frances Louise Adkins. Readers should note that Frances caught Bert's eye following drives past her on his way to school in the car he borrowed from his brother, Clyde, for just these purposes. His planning paid off, as he caught Frances' eyes as well. They were married some four years later and remained together 63 years. Until even recently, Bert could be seen in his shop crafting the finest furnishings available anywhere. More than a builder, he was a true artist and charged a mere fraction of the actual time spent in his labors. Take a, walk through the Henry County Museum sometime and you will begin to appreciate the creativity and care he brought to every project he took on. For example, have you heard of the "Miracle Staircase" in New Mexico - the one that supposedly defines the laws of gravity just by standing? Bert visited it a few years ago and proclaimed, "No big deal..! could've built it." Indeed, Bert worked, miracles throughout his career as one of the most trusted well-known and admired builders in our area, with many of the finest homes of Clinton to his credit. Bert had been in the battle for his life during the course of the past 12 years. But throughout chemotherapy and radiation treatments, he never missed a single day of work. Told not to expose his skin to the sun while taking chemo, he did it his way by working through the pain. He spaded and hoed his vegetable garden in 100+ degree weather, wearing layers of garments to shield the sun so he could continue. Perhaps it is this attitude that resulted in him becoming one of the nation's longest living survivors of his particular form of cancer. Certainly, it is a testament to the undying will and extreme mental toughness he acquired form his mother, Josie. (Readers should note that it was Josie Chrisman, who at age 83 and blind, spent her last years caring for the caretaker who had been hired to care for her.) Bert Ambrose Chrisman is survived by wife, Frances, Clinton; son, Col. Dr. Stephen Bert Chrisman and his wife, Jennifer (San Antonio, Texas); daughter, Janice Kelly Ozgunay and her husband, Ike, Clinton, and son, David Adkins Chrisman and his wife, Barbara (Pacific, Missouri). In addition, Bert was the patriarch of 18 grandchildren/great-grandchildren. Bert's brothers, Jim Chrisman (Houston) and Clyde (Springfield) are still living. Graveside services were held at the Englewood Cemetery, Clinton, on Thursday, February 5.

This was destroyed by the explosion of the boilers in 1891, and he then assisted in the organization of a company to build a new mill near the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railroad, which was afterwards acquired by Ed Willoughby, and later destroyed by fire. Space will not permit to detail all of the activities of Mr. Churchill's life, but it can be said that he was actively connected with every progressive community and business activity for the past sixty-five years. He was Mayor of Windsor for one term, was City Clerk one term, served on the School Board fourteen years, was a charter member of the Windsor Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star, and had been an active member of the Masonic Lodge for sixty-eight years.

In his home he was a typical Southern host, and his greatest pleasure in life was to entertain and enjoy the fellowship and companionship of his friends. Henry C. Churchill, the son of A. L. and Rebecca C. Churchill, was born in Union County, Kentucky, August 31, 1845, and came to Johnson County, Missouri, with his parents and two sisters in 1866, where he lived until he moved to Windsor in 1871. He was married November 20 1866, to Miss Virginia Owsley, in Johnson County, Missouri, and to this union were born, Armstead L. (now deceased), Eliza (now Mrs. R. H. Garrett) and Florence (now Mrs. J. Parks Ball).

Mrs. Missouri Churchill died November 29, 1889. He later married Mrs. Sarah E. Barber, who preceded him in death on November 20, 1912. Since her death he and his daughter, Mary J., have made their home on Tebo street in Windsor, where he departed this life on Saturday evening at ten o'clock. In August, 1866, at a revival service conducted by Rev. B. F. Lawler and Rev. Frank Goodwin at old Hickory Point church in Johnson County, he was converted and joined the Hickory Point Baptist Church and has lived a faithful, consistent and active Christian life from that time to the time of his death.

The memories of Mr. Clark, imprinted by day, the week and into the years, literally bespeak volumes. Kindness and generosity he reverenced. His ideals were sublime.

CLARK, David Russel
1842-1924
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
The reaper came Saturday, at 2:30 p.m., June 14, 1924, and called David R. Clark to his reward. David Russel Clark was born May 26, 1842, near Clay City, Ky. He was a son of William and Miriam Clark. His boyhood days were passed on a Kentucky farm and while only a lad of 18 summers, enlisted in the forces of the Southland in the great Civil strife, remaining in service until near the close of the war when he was captured in Ohio, and spent 18 months in the prison camps. On his release he returned to his native state and at the age of twenty was married to Celie Kimbrell. In 1868, he came to Henry county, and settled on and near the place of his death. David R. Clark was twice married. To the first union three children were born, one dying in infancy. Several years later the wife passed away leaving two little daughters. Only one now survives him - Mrs. Fannie Gilliam, of Los Angeles, Calif.; and two grandchildren - Mrs. Celia Howell, of Yakima, Wash., and B. C. Phillips, of Oakland, Calif. Two great-granddaughters survive. The second marriage was to Mrs. Sarah C. Light, of Humansville, Mo. Two sons were born to this union - Elmer, of Phoenix, Ariz., and Edgar, whose home was near the old home place, 8 miles northwest of Clinton. Two grandchildren - Arthur David and Mary Catharine, who was the pride and joy of his heart, survive. Having lost his dear wife by death Feb. 15, 1924, Edgar, the younger son, and good children moved to the home of his father that they might care for and comfort and cheer him in his hours of loneliness and sorrow, which was so much appreciated by the dear, good father. Mr. Clark leaves to mourn his loss two sons and one daughter; also a stepdaughter and son, G. N. Light, of Lajunta, Colo., and Mrs. S. G. Vanscoye, of Lamar, Colo.; also three brothers - Dan and George, of near Clay City, Ky., and Henry, in Oklahoma. Uncle Dave, as he was often called by those who knew and loved him best, was a true American, a good citizen, farmer, stockman, neighbor and friend; always ready to lend a helping hand to promote the growth of a good cause; a faithful and devoted follower of the meek and lowly Jesus, a member of the Garland Baptist church since 1894, being elected deacon in 1896, and filled the office well. The Christian rank is broken and none can fill the vacant space. His home was a place of welcome to his pastor; he loved to learn of Him, that he might know just how to serve his God. Mr. Clark had made preparation to visit his old home state and was to have left the day he died, but God bade him to cross over the silent stream and today he is with his Savior and the loved ones who have gone before. The funeral services were conducted at his home by Rev. D. F. Risk, pastor of the Clinton Baptist church. Masonic and K.K.K. services were conducted at the graveside in Englewood, which were beautiful and impressive. The floral offerings were beautiful, as was the character of our beloved brother and friend.

His neighbors, Ora Knight and Bill Ritter had just driven up, and they rushed to him, also his father, A. V. Clary, who was sitting on the porch. He told his father he was dying and asked him if there was anything they could do for him. He had suffered with an attack of influenza several months ago and had not been able to do much since, only having taken up the farm work a few days previous to his death. He had had spells of semi-paralysis. He had had a premonition of his death some weeks before, but both he and his wife had become much encouraged over his condition lately.

He was a good husband and father, and interested in farming and stock raising, which was his life work. His death falls most heavily on his dear little wife, who with heavy heart and tear dimmed eyes, must take the place of both parents in the hearts and lives of her two small sons.

CLARY, Mary Frances DUNN SEVIER
1847-1924
Hickory Grove Cemetery, White Oak Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - The character of which we are about to write was a Christian mother. She wrought on the stage of life, not as a star performer, but as a servant behind the scenes, labors that the drama in which she plays may glorify the Ruler of human destiny. The curtain has fallen and the drama in which she played so noble a part has ended in tragedy if she had no hope. But she had more than hope. She had an abiding faith in Him who is able to save her soul and death came not as a conqueror but as a deliverer to prepare her tired body for its long and quiet rest. The subject of this sketch, Mary F. Dunn Clary, was born October 8, 1847, in Cooper county, Mo., and came with her parents to Henry county just previous to the Civil war. Her father, Major Dunn, was a pioneer settler in the Hickory Grove neighborhood and she spent her life within a few miles of the hold home. January 4, 1868, she was united in marriage to George A. Sevier, who passed away April 13, 1874, leaving her with four small children, Jas. W. Sevier, who died in October, 1921, Rosa Williams died in August, 1907, E. F. Sevier, of Urich, and Mrs. W. G. Martin, of Springfield, survive her. January 27, 1877, she was united in marriage to A. V. Clary, who with three sons, John E., of Clinton, George E. and Ola, of Urich, together with one brother, J. N. Dunn, survive her. She departed this life at her late home 5 miles south of Urich, March 21, 1924. Age 76 years, 5 months and 15 days. Funeral service was conducted at the Presbyterian church, of Urich. Interment in Hickory Grove cemetery. The funeral sermon was based on 2nd Timothy 4:7: I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith. These words were appropriate since her life confirmed to the highest Christian principles. Sublime indeed, is the service of mother, for no pen nor picture can portray the secret ministries that spring from a heart full of love, our minds are incapable of its full measure. When hearts are aching with sorrow and memory's chamber overflows with reflections, we are consoled by the thought that her contribution to the world was a blessing.

Funeral services will be Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Consalus chapel, with burial in the Hopewell Cemetery. - James Dudley Clay was born October 24, 1910 in Yale, Oklahoma. He was the son of James Thomas and Marvella Sallee Clay and was one of thirteen children, all of whom have preceded him in death. Life in Oklahoma, as Jim so often recalled, was filled with hard work and wonderful family times. His heritage cultivated a lifetime interest in our country's western heritage. the open range, and man's ability to use the earth productively. Jim Clay was part of a generation who, as a child, experienced World War I, the war to end all wars, and to grow into a young man during the twenties - a golden age of reckless abandon - that eventually resulted In the Great Depression. It was during this time, 1931, that James Clay met, courted and married Georgia Fay Roberts in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. This was a union, likes most marriages of this era, that held fast to the vow of "through sickness and health, through richer, or poorer, till death do us part." The thirties in Oklahoma offered very little but hard work, when you could get it, and a promise that times had to get better. The early years of their marriage found Jim and Georgia in the oil fields of Oklahoma and the start of a family, beginning with their daughter, Lorene. Other children quickly followed, Mary. Ruth, James Henry. Betty, Patricia, and Virginia. During these years Jim worked for Champlin Oil Refinery in Naval Reserve, Oklahoma. Like countless millions of young men born into this era, World War Ii brought an abrupt halt to any plans or goals they might have had. His services in the United States Army began in 1944. He served in Central Europe and African campaigns as a heavy machine gun operator in the 304th Infantry, part of General George Patton's Third Army. Jim was awarded three bronze stars, a good conduct medal. entitlement to the European-African Middle Eastern Theatre Campaigns ribbons and an overseas bar. After his honorable discharge in October of 1945, Jim Joined his wife and young family in Clinton. It was here that he began his career in the construction industry, first with the R.J. Wastell Construction Company as a heavy equipment operator. Jim Clay was part of numerous major construction projects, ranging from the country's new interstate highway system, government missiles bases, Kaysinger Dam, Kansas City Power and Light expansion, to the street system of Clinton. Jim Clay was an ambitious man. He gained a reputation within the construction trades as a top-notch heavy equipment operator and was admired for his precision, dexterity, and speed. He was a member of Hoisting Engineers Local 101 and retired in 1973. In addition to finding a new career in Clinton, Jim and Georgia Clay also added fives sons to the family tree, George, Ben, Jack, Jerry and Bill. Jim Clay had a great love for the outdoors, and during lulls in the construction business took opportunities to work with cattle, ranching, and farming. Jim and Georgia Clay were very good parents, instilling in their children the virtues of honesty, loyalty and hard work. Theirs was a union that held fast to the idea that the family was the cornerstone of a productive society. Both found great joy in the accomplishments of all their children and in the later years, even greater joy in their many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There was great depth to Jim and Georgia's personal commitment to one another. Shortly after Georgia's death in 1990, Jim was stricken with a massive stroke, leaving him unable to walk and very limited ability to move. But far more frustrating was the inability to speak, for it was his great talent to relates stories of his boyhood. to talk about the many changes he had seen in his life, and to voice an opinion, something he was never hesitant to do. The last months of his life were I spent in Alpine North, a skilled nursing center Kansas City. Even here Jim quickly won the hearts of the nursing staff and gained a reputation for his sense of humor, sly smile, and compatibility with other patients. Let us not shed tears for his passing. We can takes comfort that he has at last joined his beloved wife and mother of his children, and even though the span of his life saw two world wars, a great depression, a country coming of age. and a modern era that is often perplexing, Jim Clay was part of it all. His was an exciting and momentous life, and the legacy of his existence is richly assured. Funeral services were held Sunday. August 25, 1991 at Consalus Chapel, Clinton. Burial was in Hopewell Cemetery, Henry County.

COATS, Nancy PINKSTON GUTRIDGE
1835-1924
Gutridge Cemetery, Bear Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Passing of the Pioneer. Those who lead the way into the great Mississippi valley when it was a vast wild, inhabited only by roving bands of Indians, are leaving us one by one; but there is something peculiarly interesting about them all. They loved the natural; they loved and trusted one another, and they loved and trusted God. Industrious, they gloried in accomplishment by the sweat of the brow and as they would shun the bite of the poison reptile, they spurned dishonesty, cheating, or trying to obtain something for nothing. Benevolent, they divided their stores with the unfortunate, ministered to the afflicted, and shared their meager comforts with the altars; gathered from many miles to hold camp meetings, and in time built rude churches in which they poured out their very souls in song and prayer to God. There were no pianos or pipe organs but the Angels never heard sweeter music. Nancy G. Coats was born in Kentucky Nov. 12, 1835; died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. A. Davis, in Eaton, Colorado, June 6, 1924. Aged 88 years 6 months and 24 days. Her maiden name was Pinkston and at the age of six her parents moved from Kentucky to Henry county, Mo., settling near Calhoun. After the death of her parents she made her home with her married sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Summers, in Bear Creek township. In December 1855, she was married to William Gutridge and moved to their new and spacious home near Bear Creek church. To this union three children were born - one daughter who died in infancy and two boys - John W. and James H., who both preceded her in the last voyage. William Gutridge, her first husband, died in 1861 and she remained a widow throughout the Civil war, enduring many hardships. In 1866 she was united in marriage to William Coats, who died in 1873. Two daughters were born to this union - Mrs. C. A. Davis, of Eaton, Colorado, and Mrs. C. A. Rice, of Montrose, Mo. This good woman lived nearly four score years in Henry county and every act of her life was worthy of praise. We remember her as a woman of 40 years, tall, graceful, modest, beautiful. A voice like a silver bell, ringing with melody as she told the sweet story of redemption when she was a girl, and of her union with the M. E. church, South. We remember her years of faithful service since then, how she had watched by the bedside of the sick and dying through the long, weary hours of night, smoothing the pillow and bathing the fevered brow, and we wonder no more why God lengthened her days. We remember at last when she seemed but a shadow of the past, patient in affliction, pure in thought, sweet in disposition, still trying to help others by enduring, without complaint, all the pangs of a heroine's death, more than conqueror of every foe, victor on every battlefield from the rising of the morning sun in the awakening vales of Kentucky 88 years ago, to the sinking of the last evening ray over the towering Rockies of Colorado, and we must say, though our hearts swell with sorrow, it is no wonder that the Messenger came with a gem-bedecked crown and took her to the "Land of the Unclouded Day." The funeral was held at Bear Creek church June 10, 1924. The remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground near the church. Nancy G. Coats remained a faithful member of Bear Creek Class, M. E. church, South, unto death. She was, perhaps, the oldest and lived a consistent member longer than any other in the history of the church. It was her desire to be brought back to the place where she lived practically all of her life for burial. She was ready and willing to go. She had not the slightest fear of death. Her faith was supreme and her hope of eternal life grew brighter and brighter until earth faded from view.

COHEN, Dorothy Kay ANDERSON
1930-2017
Englewood Cemetery (C), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Kay Cohen, age 86 years, of Clinton passed away at her home Wednesday, September 20, 2017.  Funeral services will be Monday, September 25, 2017, at Vansant-Mills Funeral Home, Clinton, Missouri with interment in the Englewood Cemetery, Clinton. Born in 1930 (we're sure she won't be happy with us for revealing that) our mom, or Woman, as she was known to many, lived a full and fun-filled life. A lifelong resident of Clinton, mom reveled in life and always looked forward to every day as an adventure. She held various jobs in Clinton throughout her life, from working the soda fountain in her parent's tavern, the Smokehouse, to running The Music Shop, to working for Dr. Bradshaw, and for many years working at the Clinton Daily Democrat. Mom met the love of her life, Joe Cohen, at the Smokehouse and they were married a number of years before he died in 1969.  Their marriage resulted in three children, JB (Roxanna) Cohen of Columbia, MO., Becky (Jay) Morgan of St. Petersburg, FL., and Amy (Rob) Manning of Clinton, MO. Mom was an equal opportunity parent-making each of us feel special in our own way, but we all know our sister, Amy, was mom's best friend. Mom was a talented pianist with an affinity for and deep love of music. It was very fitting then that she purchased The Music Shop on Jefferson Street and ran it for a number of years. Many of us Clinton baby boomers will remember going to The Music Shop to buy 45s or albums of the latest top 100 on Billboard. A free jukebox played all the latest hits and there was never a dull moment at the Music Shop. Special orders were never too much trouble, with the mantra, "check back Friday" ingrained in us. Our mom was also very skilled at crafts, and soon expanded the Shop to include craft supplies and examples of the latest trends in home crafting. Mom and several of her friends created the "Do-Biddy" club that met weekly to create various works of art. It is at The Music Shop that our dad hosted the Saturday morning radio show on KDKD, the Coaches Corner, with Coach Ritchie among others, to discuss the Cardinals' wins (or losses) from the night before. It is also at the Shop where Mom befriended many of our friends, especially our dear friend, David (Hot) Birdsong, who later purchased The Music Shop from mom. Hot has been a lifelong friend of the family. He and his wife Jill always made time to visit mom, and we dare say she enjoyed his visits more than ours. Mom was a lover of animals and if a stray needed a home, mom was a good bet for it. She in fact is survived by her furry family, too, including her longtime companion, her dog Bearly, her cats Box and Lipstick, and her new kitten, Penelope. Mom was a lifelong fan of Westerns and as far as she was concerned, John Wayne never made a bad movie and Gunsmoke should still be on prime time today. Mom was a charmer and even in the last years of her life, with her health declining, she managed to befriend her caregivers and make friends with whomever she came into contact. Mom could talk current events with the best of us and stayed up to date on the news, through dedicated reading of the Democrat (and the Kayo) was well as watching television. She was always happy to tease and laugh. She loved life and if she had any regrets, it would be that she didn't get to live longer. All of our parents teach us lessons throughout our lives, and our mom was no exception. Mom taught us how to live and age well, how to persevere, how to have a good work ethic, and how to be good to people. No matter what curve balls life had in store, she always took those in stride and moved on with life. For the last two decades she lived with Amy, not only her best friend, but in the end, her caregiver. They spent countless hours talking and laughing together. To paraphrase Robert Louis Stevenson, "(t)hat (woman) is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much." Mom lived her life that way, embracing it every day and by that definition, mom was an enormous success. Mom is survived by us three kids and our spouses Roxanna Cohen, Jay Morgan and Rob Manning; 4 grandkids Jody Cohen, Joshua Cohen and his wife Michelle, Jake Cohen and his wife Layla, and Joseph Hubbard and his wife Tara; a number of great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandchild; her brother Kit Anderson and his wife Darlene; nieces and nephews on both sides of the family, and a large group of wonderful friends. Mom was preceded in death by her husband as well as her parents, Mason Anderson Jr. and Dorothy Weir Anderson.

COHENOUR, John C.
1859-1928
Newton Burial Park, Nevada, Vernon Co, MO
Clinton MO - John C. Cohenour died at the home of his son, G. A. Cohenour, on South Main street, Friday, April 20, 1928, with a severe spinal trouble, from which he had been suffering for a number of years. Nothing known to medical science was left untried. Two years ago he was taken to Research hospital, in Kansas City. Then a year ago his daughter-in-law, Mrs. G. a. Cohenour, took him to Mayos, at Rochester, Minn. There they told her nothing could be done; that his earthly stay would be short; to take him home, and make him just as happy and comfortable as she could. She needed no such injunction, as she loved him as devotedly as her own father, for when she was but a tiny girl, he had been her neighbor and her family's dearest friend. She and his son grew up together as playmates, then sweethearts, and when they were married, her husband's father was her father. He was born in Brown county, Ill., near Clayton, June 29th, 1859. When he was two years old, his parents moved to Lawrence, Kans., then to Vernon county, in 1867, which was his home until he moved to Clinton. He was united in marriage with Lucy A. Allen November 16, 1890. She passed into eternity just six years ago this month. Two children were given to this union, both of whom are living. They are: G. A. Cohenour, of Clinton, and Mrs. H. C. Walker of Eldorado Springs. There are three grandsons. She also leaves three sisters - Mrs. Allie Linthicum, of Bronaugh, Mo.; Mrs. C. Brubaker, Holton, Kans., and Mrs. Belle Cathun, Long Beach, Cal. Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Linthicum were here before he died. He was converted in his youth, and united with the Presbyterian church. Later he joined the Baptist church, and belonged to the Clinton church at the time of his death. Since coming here, however, he attended the M. E. Church, South, most of the time with his son and daughter-in-law. He was a fine Christian gentleman of the highest integrity, with a happy disposition, which radiated sunshine and happiness through all these months of pain. He was an architect and contractor, and had always been very active. When his wife died, he came to Clinton to make his home with his son, taking up cabinet making. He was always interested in antique furniture, so made a specialty of refinishing it and bringing back its natural beauty. Two years ago his physical condition became such that he could work but little and the last year he was unable to do anything. This troubled him as he enjoyed his trade and was happiest when busy. His son and daughter-in-law gave him the tenderest care. They never allowed him to be lonesome a minute in the day. His every wish was gratified. He enjoyed the out of doors and seemed to breath better when he drove in the car and for hours after he got home. Mrs. Cohenour planned all the bright, happy things for him, and she made every minute of this last year just as happy as possible. She left nothing undone. She took him on many motor rides, on gay little trips that would not tire him too much that gave him something new to think about. He went the last time Wednesday. The writer saw him pass and thought how well he looked. The next day he was unable to go and was in much pain. Friday he was hopeful and cheerful, and told his daughter-in-law he must take a little ride - but he was going on his last trip, this time to meet his beloved wife and his Saviour. This was the happiest journey of all. The funeral was conducted at the M. E. Church, South, Sunday. His body was then taken to Nevada and laid in Newton cemetery beside his wife.

On the completion of that responsibility, she added a line of millinery to their store which she greatly enjoyed handling. In 1915 she was converted and united with the LaDue Baptist Church and although her life was a busy one, coupling business with household management, she found time to enjoy the duties and pleasures of her church. About 20 years ago they moved to Urich, where she continued her millinery business until her health failed and it was impossible to get help. Mr. and Mrs. Collier then returned to LaDue, purchasing in March their present home. There they lived until the past few weeks when her health became such that she had to go to the home of her daughter. She was a superior, interesting woman, skillful in meeting and dealing with the public, devoted also to her family. She was a great flower lover and her windows were usually full of blooms to greet the passers-by.. Surviving are her deeply bereaved husband; Mrs. Reed, above mentioned, and another daughter, Mrs. Bessie Murphy, of Kansas City; a son, George Collier, south of LaDue; two grandchildren, Kenneth Collier, South of LaDue, and Mrs. Ethel Chambers of Kansas City, a brother, William Jones, of Clinton.

COLLINS, John Nat

Montrose Recorder, Montrose, Henry Co, MO, Friday, Jul 18 1913 - Nat Collins Dead - J. N. Collins living five miles east of Montrose died at his home Tuesday night at 11:30 o'clock after a brief illness. Only a short time ago Mr. Collins was in town greeting his many friends, and was apparently enjoying good health. Funeral services were conducted at Teays Chapel Thursday afternoon. Burial at Teays Chapel Cemetery. - Montrose Recorder, Montrose, Henry Co, MO, Friday, Jul 25 1913 - We are never called to bury our friends that we do not feel keenly our loss. In fact, we feel that the gap thus made cannot be filled. We are made poorer at each out-going friend. The real worth of a true friend cannot be estimated in dollars and cents, and there are no rules in mathematics whereby we may reach a first conclusion of their worth. To be able to appreciate their worth we must know them. So often we think we know men and are loud in their praise and find out later that other men knew them better than we did, and we were deceived in our man. Mans life should be as an open book, to be read and known, and everyone is writing his or her own book of life, "whether foul or fair". My acquaintance with the subject of this notice, John N. Collins, was made several years ago during a pastorate of three years in the Montrose charge. To me he was a friend and continued so to be although we met only a few times in the intervening years. He was born Mar. 10th, 1855, and departed this life July 15th, 1913. Between these two dates were all possibilities of this life, and just how well he filled in the time every one that knew him knows full well. He was an industrious energetic, prosperous, enterprising man. His busy life thus added to the wealth of the community in which he lived. He was happily married to Miss Ora Mae Hoover, Mar. 28th, 1889, to whose busy hands good judgment and economy much is due to his success as a business man. It was always a pleasure to me to visit at his home. To the above union three children were born, one son and two daughters. These children have the sympathy of the entire community. Funeral service at Teays Chapel with a large crowd of sorrowing and sympathizing friends in attendance. The family have lost a good father and the community a good citizen.

COLLINS, William Benjamin, Judge
1856-1938
Norris Cemetery, Big Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Judge W. B. Collins Dies - Pioneer Henry County Citizen and Former County Court Judge Dies at Home May 19 - Judge William B. Collins, pioneer citizen and former judge of the Henry County court, died at 5:00 p.m. Thursday, May 19, at his home in Big Creek township that he had occupied throughout his long life, near the scene of his birth, even using the well that was drilled by his pioneer father, Thomas Collins, who had come to Warren County in Western Missouri in 1825, from Albermarle County, Virginia. The years slipping into generations, had passed over Judge Collins kindly, leaving him quiet to enjoy the past and tolerant to view the future. Sorrow too had been his for of his immediate people, only his daughter, Mrs. S. W. Woltzen and a brother, J. T. Collins, were left to him. His daughter-in-law, whose devotion was almost filial, had made her home in the Judge Collins home most of the time since the death of her husband in 1922, and had helped Dr. and Mrs. Woltzen in loving care of him as life stretched down its sunset way. William Benjamin Collins was born July 18, 1856, near Urich, Big Creek township, the son of Thomas and Sarah Wooster Collins, both Virginians. His father had gone to California with the gold rush in '49, crossing the desert with an ox team train and "striking it rich," had returned home by way of the Isthmus of Panama and New Orleans, where he had exchanged his gold dust for U.S.A. currency. Thomas Collins came to Henry County in 1855, buying several hundred acres of land in the Garland community and there established his family. He and his estimable wife now life in the Norris Cemetery where their last son was laid beside them. His family tell fascinating stories of their early pioneer experiences, when there were still many Indians in the vicinity. One of them was of the inordinate interest in the white papoose and their unavailing efforts to borrow young Will from his wary mother, who did not trust them. The wild game and the open prairies have changed country life since those early days and the good roads he promoted, and advances in science have changed household living, and means of transportation. Mr. Collins was educated in the country schools of Big Creek and Honey Creek and following in the footsteps of his father, he had the love of the land deep in his heart and a clear knowledge of stock raising, which were both his hobby as well as his business, and he was a recognized authority at both. Judge Collins and Miss Mary Blevins, of native Henry County parentage, were married February 20, 1876, and two children were given them, John Pressley and Ella, now Mrs. S. W. Woltzen, who with her husband, have never failed in devotion to her father. Judge Collins was a vigorous member of the Baptist church and for over half a century a member of the Urich Masonic order. He was a man of warm friendships, and with the ease and freedom begotten of pioneer experience extended all the hospitality of his rooftree with genuine sincerity and pleasure. He was a loyal Democrat from the first forming of political principles, and for two terms served the county as judge, 1914-16 and 1916-18. He was a member of the court and vividly recalled the memorable burning of the railroad bonds, October 9, 1915, when unprecedented crowds visited Clinton and cheer was at heights that swelled a populace with the ardor of celebration. Strong and vital, a worthy factor in building and shaping life about him, Judge Collins has passed to realms of the Blest and those who mourn him at the same time give thanks for his great personality. His only surviving nephew, A. Loyd Collins, conducted the funeral services on Sunday, from the old Collins homestead. Masonic services were held at the graveside at Norris cemetery near his home.

Other profitable contracts extended into Vernon County. Some time later he went to Kansas, taking quite a large contract on a railroad being built there. A few years later, he took an extensive contract in Texas, which was most successfully and profitably executed. About 22 years ago, he went to St. Louis, living in the city three years. During this time, he took a contract in Arkansas. It was a hurry piece of work and a Gould enterprise. To show his business and executive ability, his friends knew when the work was done, he and his three sons had made $60,000. His last railroad work was recently completed in Arkansas. For a time, Mr. Colt was engaged in the mercantile business in Clinton under the name of Colt & Smith. Both members of this firm are now dead, Charles Smith having died in Tennessee about one year ago. Mr. Colt built his first home on East Green Street. It was while he lived there that he bought a very large farm on the edge of St. Clair County, about five miles south of the town now of Deepwater. He made many improvements and lived on the place a part of three years. His beautiful home at the south limit of the city was built 19 years ago. This home, with the shrubbery, avenues of shade and ornamental trees, was one of the most attractive places in the state. Mr. Colt and his family have always been interested in beautifying the grounds about their home, adding to the ornamentation of town and country. All the tree planting from the Cotton place to and about the present home was done by Mr. Colt. He was interested in fruit growing and has on his place a large orchard. He was also fond of fine horses and raised and handled many fine animals. In 1892 he sold his homeplace to W.H. Smith, building across the street and a little farther out the present attractive home. The family consisted of eleven children, four daughters dying in early life and their son, John, who died two years ago, while just in the vigor of manhood. Three sons and three daughters survive - M.B. Colt of Alamosa, Colorado; W.A. Colt of Los Animas, Colorado; Edwin T. Colt of Clinton; Mrs. J.A. Reinhart of St. Louis; Mrs. W.C. Burk, Clinton; Mrs. H.F. Avery, Colorado Springs. Mr. Colt's fatal illness was paralysis, caused by a ruptured blood vessel in the brain. Very little hope for his recovery was entertained from the first. His last conscious moments and words were given to the companion of his life, calling her by name and saying that he knew her.
