Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Jul 12 1902 - After eight years of wedded life, an infant son was born to Mr. and Mrs. H.C. Hagman on March 26, 1902. The little stranger received a royal welcome. Possessed of a perfect love for each other, surrounded by their kindred and living in one of the prettiest little homes in the city, when this little one was their's, life seemed too good to be real and never was a baby more worshipped. A room was filled with baby furniture and juvenile treasures were presented by admiring relatives in anticipation of his growing interest and need, and Monday morning, grandma and auntie were bidden goodbye, leaving behind the sweetest baby and proudest parents in all Clinton. But in the evening, about 5 p.m., mother love was quick to note that something was wrong with her darling and Drs. Barr and Haire were summoned and immediately pronounced it an incurable brain trouble and at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, the death angel had taken the spirit of the little one to brighten the home in the skies. His name was Alexander D. Hagman. The funeral was held from the residence Wednesday morning. Tender hands laid the baby away with the blossoms in beautiful Englewood.

HAGMANN, Mathias Sr.
1833-1904
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Jun 11 1904 - Mathias Hagmann Sr., was born March 17, 1833 in Sevila County of St. Gailen, Switzerland. Married his first wife Anna Seifried in 1851. They had seven children. Three, and their mother, died in the old country. In 1865 Mr. Hagmann and his children emigrated to this country and settled at Highland, Ill., where he married Miss Anna Dutler. They had three boys and seven girls. In 1868 they moved to Henry County and located 1 1/2 miles south of Deepwater. The path of his pioneer life was, of course, not always strewn with roses, for there were many hard battles to be fought. But the love of home and fireside always shone out as the goal and the beautiful farm shoes the results of long toil and patient energy. About 20 years ago, he affiliated himself as a charter member of the United Workmen and remained a loyal member until his death. He had been a director in the Bank of Deepwater since its organization in 1889, which position he has filled with credit to himself and the institution. He had been ill two years and confined to his room since last March, enduring intense suffering. He realized that human help was in vain and anchored his faith in the living God. His soul took its flight to the God who gave it the morning of the 4th day of June 1904, being 71 years, 2 months, 2 days old. Probably there has been no one in this vicinity that has ever been more loyal to or ready to succor a friend and the large attendance at the funeral evidenced the high esteem in which he was held. He leaves a wife and the following children: Mathias Hagmann Jr., Mrs. Lizzie Leach, Mrs. Rosa Osburn, Mrs. Emma Hartsock, John Hagmann, Ursula Berthoux, Sedalia; Gallus Hagmann, probably dead; Mrs. Anna Meyer, Crabtree, Oregon; Mrs. Minnie Roth, Oconee, Ill.; William Hagmann, Weir City, Kansas; H. C. Hagmann, Clinton. Remains interred in the Old German Valley Cemetery, there to await the resurrection morn.

HAIRE, Robert D. Dr.
1855-1930
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Dr. R. D. Haire, one of the best physicians and surgeons Clinton ever had, went into eternity at 9 p.m. Sunday, April 13th, just 52 years from the day he started practicing medicine. Soon after his return from a visit with his sister in California, he became ill and was bedfast five weeks. He got better and was able to return to his office, but was very frail and the constant call of the sick and afflicted was ever on his mind. He worked early and late, going without food and sleep to relive the suffering, never thinking of self. He gradually grew weaker and December 3, 1929 was the last day he went to the office. However he had Miss Mary Pollock, his office nurse, keep the office open, and many came for medicine, who had been friends and patients for years. Many went to his home having confidence in their beloved physician and friend, until about four weeks ago when he became much worse and all of his children were called to his bedside. Frances had to return to her duties in Orange, N.J. and Dr. Robert Haire to his work in New Mexico. However they were here as long as he could enjoy them. He just gradually slept a little more each day until he went into sleep eternal. He was devoted to his work, but this did not hinder him giving greatest care and devotion to his wife and children. Their welfare and education were his greatest concern. The ambition of his life was that his son should take up practice with him, and he would have opportunity to direct the earlier part of his practice. When Robert was home during this last illness his father told him that when he completed his work in the Marine hospital he wanted him to enter general practice first so he would learn the heart touch as well as diagnosis. Then he wanted him to specialize as this was a day of specialists. He then wanted him to spend a year in study abroad. Dr. Haire was married to Miss Maud Maus of Schell City, November 17, 1892. Four children have blessed this union, all of whom survive to comfort their mother. They are, Robert, who is surgeon in the Marine Tuberculosis Hospital at Fort Stanton, New Mexico; Mrs. Ronald Mustarde of Brooklyn, new York; Miss Frances Haire, East Orange, N.J. and Mrs. Allan K. George of Grandview, Missouri. There are two grandsons, Robert Garnet and Allan Carter George of Grandview, Mo. Below the Eye reprints a part of the sketch published in this paper written the week after April 13, 1928, when Dr. Haire ended 50 years of practice: Dr. Haire arrived at Schell City, Mo., April 13th 1878, and just about an hour later he called on his "first case," who happened to be a negro man suffering with malaria. Dr. Haire said that he was the sickest man he had ever seen, and he gave him every attention and he got well. Dr. Haire was born in Dade County, near Stockton, September 22nd 1855. He worked hard for his education, and graduated from the Missouri Medical College in St. Louis, in 1878, and went at once to Schell City to practice. Four years later he went to Bellvue Hospital in New York City, for a years graduate work. He then returned to Schell City, where, by his keen interest in suffering humanity, and his desire to relive pain, he practiced successfully for twenty year, with the exception of the years he spent in school to further train himself in the latest methods. The year previous to his marriage, he spent in the General Hospital, in Vienna, Austria, to study surgery and learn to operate with the world's great surgeons. He has been unceasing and untiring in pursuing the study of science pertaining to his profession and every two years since he started to practice, he has spent several weeks in some hospital, clinic, university, either in the United States or abroad. He has been abroad eight times visiting all the countries of Europe. In addition to this, he has been in Mexico, Alaska and other places of interest. Travel is his only recreation. He told the Eye reporter a few days ago, "I never loafed in my life. A few weeks ago, I decided to spend two weeks on the East coast, resting. I got along fine the first day, but I could not endure it longer, so did not stay." About 30 years ago, Dr. Haire decided to go to California, but before leaving came to Clinton to see Dr. Britts, and found that Dr. Johnson wished to sell his practice here, so Dr. Haire traded properties with him and Dr. Haire and family came to Clinton. His first office was on the second floor of what is now the Penney building. At that time a grocery store was there, run by the late Dan Duden. He has been in his present office rooms, over the Clinton National Bank, about 13 years. Dr. Haire is more than a physician, he is a friend to each of his patients, mixing sunshine and kindly advice as to their life problems along with his medicine. He never forgets them, whether at home or abroad, and is especially fond of children and older people. There is not a home in this entire countryside where he has doctored that he is not as welcome day or night for a meal, as he is in his own home. There are few physicians such as he. His is a busy life. He has not taken obstetrical cases for the past 15 years, as through surgery he has such a large office practice. People come from many miles to consult him and be doctored by him. In the 35 years that he took obstetrical cases, he was the physician at the birth of 1900 babies. Among them dozens of pairs of twins, but never any triplets. Just missed the only set by being out of town. He deplores the fact that there are so few doctors now in the country. Most of them stay in the large cities or centers of populations, and there still exists a great need for the country doctor, who will give self, going day and night, no matter how bad the weather. He said: "Every young doctor should have at least ten years of general medical practice, for unless he does, he does not know the great need of the world. Nothing will take the place of bedside contacts, and the knowing of humanity in that personal way  that only a physician can learn by general practice. I think that if I had my life to live over again, I would be a specialist. Dr. Haire was studying in Vienna when the discovery of antitoxin was made in Berlin for diphtheria and he saw it used in the great hospitals there, with the almost miraculous effect, so he brought some home with him. A few days after his return he was called to a very sick child, who had diphtheria. He administered the antitoxin and to the amazement of all the child recovered. A few days later, in a medical journal he saw where a noted St. Louis physician, who had brought some from abroad, had used it. Dr. Haire wrote for the date the doctor had used it and it was found that it was a few days after Dr. Haire, so as far as known Dr. Haire was the first to bring antitoxin to the United States. He was just as alert as this in everything and showed the world a country doctor could perform as great ministry to suffering humanity as the city man, although never attain fortune. Miss Mary Pollock, who was Dr. Haire's office nurse for 13 years, knew him at this best. Dr. Haire was public spirited and served Clinton on the school board 20 years. Deceased was prominent in County, State, and the American Medical Association. He was also a member of the Masons, Knight Templars, Mystic Shrine, Elks, Odd Fellows and Woodmen. He was raised in the Cumberland Presbyterian church and ever held to the early Christian teachings of his parents. He was gentle and kind as the Great Physician. The rich and poor were treated alike. He gave his services as freely to those who were unable to pay as to those from whom he received fees. He studied the newest discoveries of his profession always. Frequently in his last sickness he would say, "I am worn out, I can not get well," but quickly following he would eagerly plan forward steps and things he meant to do, keeping courage until life was over. Dr. Haire was more than our physician-he was our friend. We felt so completely helpless as he lay there those weary weeks, remembering when our loved ones were ill, he had ministered to them, at times all night through, taxing his own strength. There are very few homes in Henry County that have not been touched by the life of Dr. Haire, as he was nearly always called in time of crisis in consultation, for even to the last of life he was recognized as authority on diagnosis. He has made a complete study of the human body and its ills, keeping up with every scientific discovery. His death is the greatest loss Henry County has ever suffered in the death of a one person. It is the first break in the Haire family circle. Although the community and his children will miss him, the loss falls heaviest on his beloved wife, who has shared his every joy, sorrow and ambition ever since their marriage. Theirs has been a happy union-their home a once of unusual charm, whose influence will ever be felt by the people of Clinton. The funeral was conducted at the M.E. Church, South, Tuesday afternoon.

HALL, Andrew Jackson "Jack"
1839-1928
Urich Cemetery, Bogard Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Andrew Jackson Hall was born February 4 1839, near Jamestown, Moniteau county, Mo. His parents, William and Rhoda Hall, with five children moved from North Carolina to Moniteau county, Mo., in the latter part of the eighteenth century, and at this place raised to manhood and womanhood a family of fourteen children. His father died when he was quite young and he assumed the responsibility of caring for his widowed mother and the rearing of his younger brothers and sisters. This duty he performed faithfully, he being one of the last to leave the parental home. His parents being southern people, his sympathies were naturally with the south, and he fought for his principles under the southern flag, serving under the command of General Price and the captaincy of Albert Hornbeck. At the close of the war he returned to his home, and on July 6, 1865, he was married to Juliza Jane Cornett, who preceded him to the great Beyond, November 9, 1927, a little more than seven months ago. In March 1869, he brought his family to Henry county, and settled upon the present homesite. The original building in which all the children except the oldest, were born, burned in 1884. The home in which he spent his last days was built the same year. At an early age he professed faith in Christ and united with the Union Baptist church in Moniteau county, and was a faithful follower of his Master and a firm believer in the principles of his religion. In early manhood he met with a severe accident while working with a threshing machine and for several weeks his life was despaired of, but a clean body and an upright life enabled him to recover. "Uncle Jack" as he was familiarly known, was of a quiet unassuming disposition, loving his home and family and daily living his religion. His opinion and advice were sought by his children, nephews and nieces. The comfort of his invalid wife was his chief concern for several years, but the shock of her death and the loss of her companionship after sixty-two years of wedded life broke his heart, and it was more than he could bear. He grew perceptibly weaker and more feeble until God called him higher up. His daughter, Mrs. Ida Hudson, came back to the old home two years ago to care for and brighten the lives of her aged parents. Her presence in the home was a blessing to them and an example of filial love to others. A. J. Hall was made a Master Mason of Agricola Lodge No. 343, August 11, 1870. Later he became a charter member of Urich Lodge No. 286, A.F. & A.M. All of his children were with him in his last days and did everything possible for his ease and comfort. They are: Mrs. Ida Hudson, of the home; Mrs. T. B. Elliott, of California, Mo.; Van W., T. E., and E. W., of Urich. He left his earthly home for his home in Heaven, June 22, 1928, to be forever with his sainted wife and to await his dear ones, where there are no more separations. Funeral services were held at the home Sunday afternoon, and interment made at the Urich cemetery.

HALL, Eddie Florence OVERBEY
1879-1923
Urich Cemetery, Bogard Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton MO, Mar 23 1923 - "A beautiful ship sails safely into Homeland Port after a long and trying voyage. Despite the stress and strain of wind and weather, her sails are as fresh and clean as when they were first unfolded to the breeze. Her cargo is abundant and rich beyond measure, for every port she has touched, has contributed to the value of her freightage. At every port and to every ship saluted on the high seas, she has given something of worth from her abundant supply. But the giving was all in the spirit of helpful exchange and she, as well as they, were enriched." The above is very appropriate to the life of Mrs. Van W. Hall, who has finished her voyage and anchored in the haven of rest. Eddie Florence, daughter of John A. and Sarepta A. Overbey, was born at Norris, Henry county, Missouri, February 11, 1879, and died at Urich, Missouri, March 15, 1923, age 44 years, 1 month and 4 days. she came with her parents to Urich from Yates Center, Kansas, in 1889, and remained here, or in this immediate vicinity the remainder of her life. At the time she finished the course of study taught in the Urich schools in 1897, she graduated with highest honors and was also the youngest member of the class. After graduation, she taught two or three years in the Urich schools. She was one of the most efficient and faithful members of the Urich Order of Eastern Star, having held at different times all the important offices. In the Urich Reading Club, of which she was a valued member, her papers always showed extensive and careful study in preparation and thought in delivery. She united with the Urich Baptist church in December, 1914, and continued a member until her departure. As a member of the church, she was very zealous, ready to support everything for advancement, assuming her duties and obligations with respect, consistent in attendance at all services, manifesting a Christian spirit in her relations to her brethren and eager for the salvation of the lost. she was the efficient teacher of the Co-Workers Class, an organized class with twenty-four members. On July 16, 1900, she was united in marriage at Clinton, Missouri, to Van W. Hall, but no children were born to this union. Nearly all her life had been spent in Urich and the immediate vicinity, and her life had been as an open book to a large circle of friends and acquaintances. A friend, who has known her from childhood, paid the following beautiful tribute: "She always recognized the best in her friends and associates and commended them for it; broad minded and was always anxious for the betterment of the community; unselfish, as she was often heard to say that her one pleasure in life was in doing something for others." She had been in failing health for some time. About four weeks ago, she was taken to Kansas City for treatment, but all efforts seemed in vain as she daily grew worse. She was brought to Urich Wednesday, March 14, and taken to the home of her parents, where she died early the next morning. She is survived by a devoted husband, by her parents above named, four brothers -- Will and Clint Overbey of Urich; John A. Overbey Jr. of Enid, Oklahoma, and Dick R. Overbey, Salina, Kansas; four nieces and two nephews. Funeral services were held at the Baptist church, March 17th, conducted by the pastor, and the body laid to rest in the Urich cemetery. "She has a beautiful book of remembrance written in loving and mourning hearts, but her imperishable epitaph is her life of service for her Master, and her own works they shall praise and follow after her."

Hugh Hall departed this life at his residence in Montrose, Henry County, Mo., on March 21st, 1875, aged seventy-one years, six months and twenty-one days. He was born in Knox County, Tennessee, August 30th, 1803, and in the fall of the year 1841, he emigrated to Missouri, and settled in St. Clair county, not far from Humansville, where he remained upon his farm until the war came up, and being a strong southern man in feeling, he then left his hitherto peaceful and quiet home, went south to fight the battles of his country, and after the war was over he returned to Missouri and remained a while in Pettis county near Georgetown, and from thence he came to Germantown, Henry county, and there engaged in the mercantile business for two years after which he came to Montrose, where he led an active and useful life till his last illness, honored and loved by all who knew him. In many respects Brother Hall was a remarkable man--having a strong constitution, a well balanced mind, a cheerful disposition, and a good, warm heart, he was well calculated to make friends wherever he went. At an early period in his life he was most powerfully converted to God after which he united with the Methodist Church, and for half a century was a follower of the blessed Jesus, advocating his cause and doing what he could as a class leader, exhorter and steward, to help on the good cause of the Master. Brother Hall was also a member of the Masonic fraternity, and was worthy and well qualified to take an active part in discharging the important duties of the "craft." He was a charitable man, his hand ever being open to supply the needy and to bless those in distress. He was thrice married and was the father of fifteen children. Twelve of them still survive him, three having preceded him to the spirit land. Brother Hall was sick some twelve days, during which time he suffered intensely, his disease being of a complicated nature, yet he bore his afflictions with Christian fortitude and resignation. During a good portion of his sickness he was not at himself, but a short time before his death he called his wife and friends around his bed, and bade them an affectionate farewell, exhorting them all to meet him in heaven. And thus he passed away, in the hope of immortality and eternal life. His funeral was preached by the undersigned to a large and attentive audience, after which he was buried with Masonic honors, a large concourse of people being present. Oh! how we all miss our deer departed brother. May we at last meet him in heaven. - J.B.H. Wooldridge

HALL, Juliza Jane CORNETT
1838-1927
Urich Cemetery, Bogard Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. Jane Hall, wife of A. J. Hall passed away at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 9, 1927, at the old homestead where she had resided since March, 1869, near Urich, Mo. Aunt Jane, as she was familiarly known to young and old in that community, was born at Harrisonville, Cass county, Mo., December 7, 1838. She was the last survivor of a family of 12 children. Her parents, Edley and Elizabeth Cornett, were among the early pioneer settlers of Jackson county, Mo., their parents having migrated to that county from Virginia and Kentucky during the eighteenth century. The families were closely related to Jefferson Davis, president of the Southern Confederacy, and the famous Henry Clay. She spent the greater part of her girlhood days in Kansas City, Independence and Westport, Jackson county. Among her schoolmates were the famous Younger children - Jim, Cole and bob; and their sister; also Steve Elkins of West Virginia fame, and many other prominent people of that county. The famous Kit Carson was a very close friend of her family, many of the Davis and Cornett families accompanying him on his expeditions. He made his home when in Jackson county with her uncle, Jessie Davis. Her father went to California in 1849 to seek his fortune in mining and merchandising, making a success in each undertaking. He made the trip overland to that state and settled at Marysville, Cal., where he amassed a great fortune. Mines today at that place are known as the Cornett mines. Word came to his wife and family that he had died a few hours before his contemplated departure for home. The natural supposition was that he had been murdered for his money. California being such a lawless place at that time, no satisfaction could be obtained regarding his death and the money and property could never be traced. To this day it remains one of the unsolved mysteries. Aunt Jane professed faith in Christ at an early age and united with the old Stone church at Westport, Mo., always moving her membership when she changed her residence. She had been a member of the Urich Baptist church since the erection of the first church building at Old Urich. She never doubted the love of her Savior whom she tried to follow very closely, always helping the needy and administering to the suffering, with always a thought for others instead of self. She spoke often during her illness of her Savior's love and begged and prayed to be taken home to rest, as she had long been a sufferer. She was united in marriage to A. J. Hall, of Jamestown, Mo., July 6, 1865. To this union were born five children - Mrs. Ida Hudson, now with her father, Mrs. Lulu Elliott of California, Mo.; Van W., Bert and Gene Hall, all of Urich. These with the aged husband, one son-in-law, three daughters-in-law, 10 living grandchildren and a host of other relatives are left to mourn her departure. Her mind was clear and active during her life and up to the time of her departure, having spoken her husband's name shortly before the summons came. A remarkable incident is the fact that she and her husband, Uncle Jack, were each almost 89 years of age, her oldest child 61 and the twins, her youngest, are 50 years of age, and she was the first broken link of the family. Funeral services were conducted Nov. 11, 1927. Interment at the Urich cemetery.

HALL, Sarah A. ARNOLD
1850-1936
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. Frank Hall, who lived many years at the corner of Sixth and Franklin streets, but had been with her only daughter, Mrs. W. E. Meyers of Collins, Mo., since the middle of September, died in Collins at 1:45 p.m. Sunday. Mrs. Hall's long and respected life, so much of which was lived within two blocks in the east part of Clinton, closed with the same dignity and gentleness that had characterized it throughout. Without pain, which she always dreaded as a part of advanced years, or disability, she went to sleep and slipped quietly to the realms of Eternal Day, with her family scarcely conscious of her passing. Sarah A. Arnold was born in Bryan, Williams County, Ohio, June 17, 1850, whither her parents, George Arnold and Catherine Anthony, both of Alsace-Lorraine, had come with their parents as children. Her mother was an ardent admirer of the great Napoleon, one of whose couriers her grandfather had been, and she always felt that some day France would get back the Alsace-Lorraine territory. Sarah Arnold made her home in Ohio until after she and Frank Hall, a veteran of the Union Army, were united in marriage, March 28, 1867. They then moved to Henry County, where they settled on a farm one mile east of Shawnee Mound, now owned by Frank Gildersleeve and his wife, who is a niece of Mrs. Hall. In 1868 they moved to Clinton and built a home for themselves at 605 East Jefferson street, where Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Schofield reside today. All the lumber for the house was hauled from Warrensburg with teams and wagons because in those days there were no railroads into Clinton. From then on Clinton remained her home and the large house on East Franklin street has long been known as the Hall home. Three children blessed their union, Will F., of Clinton; Charlie, deceased three years ago, and an only daughter, Frankie, now Mrs. W. E. Meyers of Collins, all learning the lessons of thrift and industry that their parents had practiced and that Mrs. Hall had been taught by her parents, who believed thrift and frugality were cardinal virtues. Mrs. Hall had a splendid constitution and her good health was one of her great blessings, for she rarely knew sickness and always led a most active, energetic life. She was reared in the Lutheran faith, from which teachings she never broke away. After there ceased to be a Lutheran denomination in Clinton she joined the First M. E. Church and was a faithful member for more than 40 years, rearing her children in the faith. She lived a true Christian life, quietly living her belief, devoting herself to her family and never finding any sacrifice too great to make for them. Mrs. Hall was under all circumstances, a faithful citizen and few people have her capacity for making friends. She lived all her neighbors, doing for them many kindly services and through long years remained always the same, for she followed the Bible injunction of loving her neighbor as herself. In the section where her daughter lives, this neighborliness was especially seen and felt. The funeral services were conducted at 1:30 p.m. Monday by Rev. A. S. Olsen from the W. F. Hall home on East Green street. The body was put to rest in Englewood beside her husband, who has been there since 1905, borne hence by Frank Gildersleeve, George Crooks, Howard Jones, and D. B. Callen, kinsmen, and Max Fellhauer and Alva Null, highly esteemed neighbors.

HAMILTON, Henrietta Jane MILLER
1859-1934
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton MO, Jan 1934 - Mrs. Henrietta Miller Hamilton died at her home at 600 East Grand River, at 6:35 a. m., January 26; after a brief illness due to cerebral paralysis. Henrietta Miller was born September 7, 1859 near Tompkinsville, Kentucky. At the age of 13, she was left an orphan, and made her home with an aunt in Tompkinsville until her marriage to Robert Taylor Hamilton, July 29, 1879. To this union were born six children, who are: Mrs. W. B. Parks, John, Misses Lucy and Laura Hamilton, Clinton; Mrs. Albert Isaacs, Greenwood; and one daughter, Mrs. K. H. Neagle, who died in 1929. Mr. Hamilton had three sons by a previous marriage, and Mrs. Hamilton loved them as devotedly and took care of them as tenderly as her own children, for her sympathetic heart made her want to mother all of them, and these children loved her as they would their own mother. Barlow now lives in Arcola, Alfred in Dalton, and Hezikiah in Tuscola, Illinois. Mrs. Hamilton, with her family, came to Missouri in 1894, and made their home on a farm in the Bethlehem neighborhood, where Mr. Hamilton died in 1895. With the determination which characterized her life, she worked early and late to make a living for her fatherless children. This was one of the factors which later helped to undermine her health. The Hamiltons moved to Clinton in 1900, where she enjoyed the friendship of her neighbors, as she was ever willing to minister to others. She was a good Christian, and disliked all sham and hypocrisy. Life offered to Mrs. Hamilton many hours of toil - labor of the hardest kind, which would have turned many women into hopeless drudges. But not Mrs. Hamilton, for interwoven into her life was the rhythm of music and melody of song. The ordinary commonplace things of life became beautiful under her touch, and her sweet, ministering nature was as lovely as the music and the flowers which she loved. Even poultry raising was, to her, a happy experience, rather than a task to be avoided. Each summer her flowers grew and blossomed under her care. She was deeply interested when she watched the development of a tiny seed as it grew into a sturdy plant and blossomed into a bright flower. And as carefully as she cultivated her flowers, she also watched her children as their lives unfolded, and they too became worthwhile men and women of the community. Under her guidance, chubby little boys became staunch men, and rosy cheeked little girls grew to charming womanhood, such as her daughter, Miss Laura, who is one of Clinton's beloved teachers. She was fond of piecing quilts, and when her hands were unable to hold the needle, she used the machine to make the exquisite quilts which she gave to her children and grandchildren. At her death she had 20 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Mrs. Hamilton was converted in early girlhood and united with the Baptist church, where she held membership for many years. Several years ago she united with the Seventh Day Adventist church of Clinton. During her later life she enjoyed hymns on the victrola, and later over the radio, and the sacred music seemed to soothe the pain. Her favorites, "Sweet By and By", "God Will Take Care of You", and "Abide With Me", were sung by Elvin Mitchell, Jas. Shepherd, E. W. Ritchey and Kenneth Anderson, at the funeral services, held at the home Sunday afternoon. Burial was in the family lot at Englewood, at her request.

Once more she attended at an "Old Folks" meeting in May 1903. Her presence was a benediction in the home, in the social circle and in the church.

Sue Lucille Puckett and Lawrence Hammond were married October 27, 1931, and started forth on a happy wedded life with the brightest prospects for the future. Their life together was ideally happy and when two little girls arrived their cup of happiness seemed complete.

Mrs. Hammond was a good mother to her children and spent every waking moment thinking for their comfort and that of their father.

Clinton Eye - Accidental Gun Shot Fatal To Harve Hampton - After Investigating Disturbance At Chicken House, Shotgun Goes off Accidently As it is Replaced in Kitchen - James Harvey Hampton, northeast of Urich, Mo., was the victim of a fatal accidental gunshot early Wednesday morning, Nov. 25, 1942 at his farm home. Mrs. Hampton and her father, John D. Cornett, with whom they had made their home since the death of Mrs. Cornett, about five years ago, were disturbed about half an hour after midnight by noise among the chickens, and the barking of dogs. The continued confusion awoke Mr. Hampton, who hurriedly dressed and taking his shotgun from behind the kitchen door, went out to the chicken yard where the noise of hens and dogs presaged person or varmint. Mrs. Hampton went into her room to put on heavy shoes as it was muddy in the chicken run, and if some animal were there, a flashlight might help her husband. Her father was still on the porch and called a few minutes later, that whatever had been there must have gotten away for Mr. Hampton was coming back. Mrs. Hampton who had kept the house dark, heard her husband enter, - the kitchen door close, and as she was conscious of the latch falling to catch, heard the gun discharge and her husband scream. "Mercy, did that gun go off and hit you, Harve?", she called. "Yes, it did.- light the lamp", he answered. While she was busy with the lamp, Mr. Hampton got to the middle bedroom. She heard him scream again, and as she turned to him, he fell forward, blood flowing from the arteries under his right arm that had been severed by the shot. Drs. Joseph Hampton, his brother, and R. S. Hollingsworth of Clinton were hastily summoned, but Harve's blood had ebbed on their arrival. They judged the old 12-gauge double-barreled shotgun he had taken out with him had been left cocked and as he put it back behind the kitchen door, the slight jar discharged it. James Harvey Hampton was born May 29, 1880, the son of David and Mary Beaty Hampton on the old Hampton farm in Shawnee Township north of Huntingdale, where he was reared. April 16, 1902 he was united in marriage to Miss Tressie Cornett and their first home was on the original Hampton farm where lived until the death of her mother when they moved to the Cornett farm to care for her elderly father.

HANCOCK, George Washington Jr.
1838-1904
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Mar 12 1904 - In the death of G. W. Hancock on March 5, 1905, Clinton and Henry county lost one of its best and worthiest citizens. Born Dec. 20, 1838 of noble parentage in Owen county, Ky., in which state scores of his relatives live, including the chief executive of the grand old commonwealth. He immigrated to Henry county in the spring of 1875 and has lived in this community continuously. In the early sixties, he visited relatives in Clinton for the first time and remained until the close of the war, where he rendered great service in relieving the harsh measures of the time as they affected members of his family, who had cast their lot with the Confederacy. By patient industry and careful management, he accumulated considerable property. He was first married in Kentucky to Mrs. Mary Rebecca Miller, where two daughters, Mrs. H. C. Evans and Mrs. W. S. Robinson were born, and live in this county. On July 19, 1894, he married Miss Anice C. Wills of Garden City, who survives him. He was so jovial and good natured that he seemed to live in an atmosphere of perpetual youth. A few years ago, he was stricken with partial blindness, but at no time did he lose his native cheerfulness. He was simple and childlike in the profundity of his faith, and legions lost a friend when he died, with none losing a foe. Among his last words were blessings on his many friends who had rendered him such kindly service during his last illness.

HANCOCK, George Washington Sr.
1807-1889
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Nov 2 1889 - G. W. Hancock, Sr., familiarly known as Uncle Wash, died about 12 o'clock Monday night, thus closing the scene of a most eventful life. Born in Culpepper Co, Va., May 19, 1807. His father's family moved to Franklin county, Ky. about 1810, where he was reared, a member of one of the most flourishing families of that state. He next moved to Owenton county, Ky., where in 1830 he married Jennette N. Settles, where his three children were raised, only one, John B. Hancock, surviving. He joined the Baptist church in his 16th year, and after his marriage, the children, 10 of whom grew to powerful and sturdy manhood and womanhood, he has for several years been the only surviving member. That once large and happy family of rollicksome boys and girls who tended the flocks, tilled the fields and played about the hearthstone of their father's plantation in Kentucky, vieing in feats of strength and prowess with their fellows, have with him passed away forever. He came to Clinton first in the fall of 1854, moving permanently the summer of 1855, when he brought with him the first stem saw and grist mill ever erected here, for which he received a bonus of $1000, an offer made by local citizens to secure such a venture. This mill was located where the ruins of the old woolen factory now stand; and here with his son, J. B., present proprietor of the Brownington mills, he sawed lumber and ground bread-stuff for people far and near until the outbreaking of the war. As a boy, he heard the battle guns of 1812, was a busy carpenter and builder in Kentucky at the time of the Mexican War and, in the late war, his fearless and out-spoken sympathy for the cause of his native state brought upon his head not a few of the trials and misfortunes of that stormy time. His first vote was cast for Andrew Jackson and all through his life, in the height of prosperity or midst of misfortune, two grand principles guided and controlled his life - the eternal justice of the principles of Democracy and his trust in God, child-like in its simplicity. Soon after coming to Henry county, he bought and entered some 2000 acres of land and at the old home place, a spot which long years ago he had chosen from a hundred hills to be the abiding place of himself and family, he passed to his much needed rest, the same calm look upon his face, the same sweet smile upon his lips that had graced a thousand deeds of kindness and lit his every look of love.

HANCOCK, John B.
1831-1902
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, February 8, 1902 - Word was received Wednesday that J.B. Hancock had died that evening at Heman, Oklahoma. Born in Owen County, Kentucky, where he grew to manhood, he came to Henry with his father, the late G. W. Hancock, in 1854, and they built the first steam flouring mill in the county. They also entered and purchased large tracts of land extending almost in a continuous body from Clinton, northwest to Big Creek. He furnished the lumber for the covered bridge, southwest of Grand River, that was torn down but a few months ago, and gave to the Christian Church of Clinton all the hard lumber that entered into its structure. He had been convinced by the powerful eloquence of Rev. Alexander Campbell, when he was preaching in Kentucky, and remained steadfast to the end. He was with Gen. Price during the war and, at the battle of Wilson Creek, was severely wounded and left on the field as dead but was rescued by L. W. Good of this city. He was a cousin of the late Congressman E. E. Settle of Owenton, Kentucky and also of G. W. Hancock, Clinton. He leaves two sons and two daughters, Mrs. Walter Greene of Marshall, and Mrs. A. A. Blanchard of Brownington. He left Brownington last summer and visited his son Clem at Meeker, Colorado and other Colorado points and was located at Heman, Oklahoma where he was endeavoring to build up a home. He was in his 73rd year at the time of his death. Remains will probably arrive in Clinton today for burial.

As he was doing this the train started and ran over him. His head was cut in two and was so badly mangled that the body could not be recognized by the face. The train crew knew nothing of what had happened, and left the city. Isolated Spot. -- Peoria street, near where the accident occurred, is a side street and there is very little traffic on it, especially during the early hours of the morning. The body was discovered half an hour later by Engineer Wilford of fast passenger train No 15, which passes through Lincoln at 8 o'clock. He saw the body lying on the track and stopped the train. The body was picked up. Old and Feeble. -- Mr. Hanger was very feeble. He lived with his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Ryan, in Lincoln, who moved here about a year ago from Quincy. He was on his way from Mrs. Ryan's home in the residence of his nephews, the Hanger Bros., prominent music dealers in Lincoln and Mt. Pulaski, at the time he met his death.

HANNING, Mary May
1906-1922
Laurel Oak Cemetery (H), Windsor, Henry Co, MO
Windsor MO, Thursday, March 9 1922 - Missouri Killed By Train Miss Mary May Haning (sic), Sunday Afternoon- Foot Caught in Trestle South of Town - Was Walking Track with Eldon Edmondson When Katy Limited, Southbound, Bore Down on Them - Companion Had Narrow Escape From Like Fate. Miss Mary May Haning was instantly killed Sunday afternoon about 4:15 by being struck by the southbound Katy Limited when about half way across the Tebo creek trestle down the track from the Colbow crossing, south of town. In company with Eldon Edmondson, Miss Haning was walking south on the Katy track and a high wind was blowing from the sough which prevented them from hearing the approaching train. Between the public road crossing and the trestle, over Little Tebo, there is a curve in the railroad which prevents one from seeing an approaching train from the north until it is almost upon the trestle. After the train had passed over Miss Haning, it backed up and the body was put on a stretcher and taken into the men's waiting room at the depot and later to the Huston Undertaking Parlors where an inquest was held Monday afternoon. Prior to the taking of testimony, the coroners jury consisting of C.H. Garoutte, J. W. Garoutte, J.W. McIntire, Frank S. Oechsli, Gasner Foster and J.A. Wesner, was impaneled by Coroner W. R. Campbell of Clinton, and in company with the coroner viewed the body of the unfortunate victim of the accident. They found both of her legs and both arms were broken, a deep scalp wound also an injury to her hip. On account of the train crew of the Limited not being able to get here at 1 o'clock the taking of testimony was deferred until 4:30 in the afternoon. The engineer on the Limited, H. F. Yonker of Sedalia, and his fireman, D.R. Bates of Sedalia, testified that they saw the couple ahead of them on the trestle over Little Tebo, that they whistled, but the couple did not see them, and then the two people started to run and the girl fell, the boy apparently trying to lift her, but being forced to leap for his life just before the engine passed over her. The train was going between fifty-five and sixty miles an hour. Mr. Yonker testified that as soon as he saw the danger he blew the whistle, threw on the brakes and the emergency, and stopped the heavy train as quickly as posible (sic). Eldon Edmondson, the young man who was the lady's companion, testified that he was a coal miner, had lived in Windsor eighteen years, and had known Miss Haning eight months. In the afternoon in company with Miss Haning, went out for a walk and went south on the Katy railroad track, stopped at the trestle but did not see or hear a train, started across and when about half way heard a train whistle, thought it was coming from the south, looked and did not see anything, then looked north and the train was almost upon them, not over three hundred feet away, grabbed her by the arm, but her foot became fastened between the ties, tore half of sleeve of her dress off trying to extricate her, but couldn't, told her to lie down on the track, which she did. He said he then closed his eyes and jumped to the outside of the track, something striking one of his feet, but inflicting no injury. He said he saw the girl raise her head after the engine and one car passed over her, the second car striking her. After the train had passed over her. After the train had passed, he got up from the ties at the outside of the track and went to the body of the girl, but she was dead when he got there. A heavy wind was blowing from the south and this, he said, was the reason they did not hear the whistle until the train was almost upon them. Mose Cairer, who was also taking a walk in that part of town Sunday afternoon, stated that he met the two young people out walking near the trestle; also met two strangers at the Colbow crossing and was talking to them when the train passed, that the train whistled at the crossing and also shortly after. When it whistled the second time, he said he thought of the boy and girl he had met and wondered if they had crossed the bridge. He heard the train stop shortly after it whistled and felt sure something had happened. He said he heard the train whistle when it left the depot in Windsor and also when it crossed the different crossings and later just before it stopped. This being all the testimony, the jury then retired to another room and within a short time returned the following verdict: We, the jury, find from the evidence that the death of Mary May Haning was entirely accidental and that the trainmen were in no way responsible. G.P. FOSTER, Foreman. - Monday afternoon funeral services were held over the remains at the Huston Undertaking Parlors and interment was made in Laurel Oak cemetery. Mary May Haning was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. H. Haning and was born in Pettis county, Mo., July 23, 1906, and had she lived until July would have been sixteen years of age. The family came to Windsor about one year ago. She is survived by her parents, four brothers and four sisters. The family had just completed arrangements for moving to a farm near Leeton. As the engine and tender and one car had passed over Miss Haning without injury, it is evident she either started to raise up, else was caught by the trucks of the third car swinging lower than on the forward car. Word of the sad accident spread quickly and soon a crowd of two hundred or more persons were at the station. - Another clipping, no date; may have come from church bulletin: At the request of the family, our pastor conducted the funeral at 3:15 Monday afternoon of Miss Mary Mae Hanning, who was so suddenly killed on Sunday afternoon by a Katy passenger train. She was a beautiful young girl, not quite 16 years of age, and quite popular among her young friends. The parents and sorrowing brothers and sisters will not be forgotten by all good people. Services were at the Huston funeral parlors in the presence of a large concourse of friends." - MARY HANEY KILLED Laid Down on Track to Escape Passing Train, But Raised Her Head Too Soon Miss Mary Haney, who lived here a few years ago with her parents and is well known by many Leeton people, met a tragic death near Windsor late Sunday afternoon. The dead girl is a sister of Mrs. Gurney Parker, near Leeton. The Sedalia correspondent of the Kansas City Post, gives the following account of the accident: Her foot imprisoned inside the rails of an M K & T. railroad trestle, Miss Mary Haney, 17 (hand crossed out and written in 15) years old, would have escaped death by lying flat between the rails while a passenger train passed above her, had she not lifted her head as the last car passed. She was killed almost instantly. With Eldon Edmonson, Miss Haney was walking across the trestle a mile south of Windsor, when they were overtaken by the train. He stepped outside the rails and laid face downward, while she was unable to free her foot and laid face downward between the rails. She raised her head slightly and was killed.

HARBSTREET, Mary SCHLICHER
1866-1935
Norris Cemetery, Big Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Life's Journey Ended - The influence of the life of a good woman lives on, though the physical pilgrimage on this earth ended for Mrs. Otto Harbstreet, at her home a mile northeast of Hartwell at 8 a.m. Monday. She had been in failing health for some time with a serious stomach trouble and was bedfast about 15 days previous to her death. During this time she was surrounded by her children, who came with tender ministrations except Mrs. Clarence Byrd, of Kline, Colo., who was unable to come. Mary Schlicher, the daughter of the late William and Amelia Schlicher, was born at New Baden, Ill., September 22, 1866, and at the time of her passing was 68 years, 8 months and 12 days old. When she was 12, she came to Henry County with her parents and here she spent the remainder of her life. She was one of Henry County's most beautiful girls - dark-haired, brown-eyed, and she gave her hand and heart in marriage to Otto Harbstreet, March 30, 1887. Two years later, Mr. and Mrs. Harbstreet went to the farm where she died. Here they built a home, which they increased as their family grew, and was always surrounded by the love and protection of the husband and father, Otto Harbstreet, and the devoted home-making of his beloved wife. Nine children came to them; of these six daughters and one son survive to comfort their father. They are: Mrs. James George, northwest of Clinton; Mrs. Katie Ayers, who lives at her parental home at Hartwell; Mrs. Richard Houk, Mrs. Edgar Hubbard, and Archie Harbstreet, Hartwell; Mrs. Clarence Byrd, Kline, Colo.; Mrs. Lee Sevier, South Main street, Clinton. There are 18 grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Two sisters also survive: Mrs. Lena Winkler, Hartwell; Mrs. Anna Schultz, Bellingham, Wash., and a brother, Chas. Schlicher, Macomb, Mo. The latter and the sister at Hartwell were at her bedside during the last illness, but the sister in Washington was unable to come. Mrs. Harbstreet was raised in the Catholic church, but when she came to her new home in Missouri, she attended the Baptist church near her home and there she raised her children. Every one of her children are members and active workers in the Baptist church, including Mrs. Sevier in Clinton. A woman's life is reflected in her children, and as one sees the Harbstreet children, so active about the worthwhile things of life, while not acquainted with the mother, we know she was good, kind, pure and fine, for she taught them the essentials of living, that of first making a home, then of regular church attendance and working for their Master. Her son was the youngest child. As the six daughters grew to womanhood, they inherited the beauty of their mother, the same fine complexion, dark hair, and flash of dark brown eyes, but they were unspoiled because of the good sense of this mother who taught them thrift, industry, and how to use everything that come their way. Cooking, canning, keeping an immaculately clean house, were taught them, then as each daughter grew to womanhood, the mother wisely placed them in charge of the sewing for the family, while she busied herself raising poultry and attending to outdoor duties. They were among the most popular girls of their community, and as one would marry, the next oldest would be placed in the charge of the family sewing, so they all learned how to do this work. They were not taught superficial living as many girls are, and as a result, happiness has come to them, not only into their own homes but they have made a place for themselves in the communities where they live and in the churches where they work. Mrs. Harbstreet enjoyed her poultry, but more especially did she enjoy the garden of flowers that blossomed in their season and it was one of the beauty spots on what was known as the old Hartwell road, for flowers nodded their greeting through the spring, summer and fall seasons. Although quiet and a woman of rare speech, Mrs. Harbstreet had the ability of making friends and was much beloved by her neighbors and friends. She enjoyed travel and had visited many parts of the United States. The funeral services were conducted at the Harbstreet home Tuesday. Her body was laid to rest in the Norris cemetery. The pall bearers were grandsons, Emmett and Walter Houk, Floyd, Lloyd, Ervin and Ernest George. The flower girls were five granddaughters, LaVern Harbstreet, Cleda and Temple George, Hazel and Mary Lucille Houk, and a grandniece, Gloria Grasher.

HARDT, Elizabeth PAULEY
1858-1935
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton, MO - EARTHLY JOURNEY ENDS FOR MRS. JACOB HARDT - Her Girlhood Desire to Spread the Gospel to the Unsaved Fulfilled in the Lives of Her Children - Four Were Active Missionaries - "Have thine own way, Lord," were the words of humility and love for her Master which burned in the heart of Mrs. Jacob Hardt and guided her through more than 76 years of life on earth. These words were never erased from her lips and when she was called to her eternal home she went without questioning His way, although her daughter, whom she had not seen for many years, was even then on the high seas coming home. When her children left home for the difficult foreign fields to carry the marvelous salvation of Christ to the Unsaved thousands, their hearts were warmed with her loving admonition of the opportunity that had come to them to be bearers of the Word. Not only did she give spoken encouragement but her radiant, smiling face assured them that she was not grieving, but was serving with them in her prayers for their guidance to make use of every chance for the Master's service. Others marveled at her courage as they stood by and watched her bid her children farewell as they left for foreign fields. She inspired not only the children but those who watched, and it so left its imprint that she became the subject for a story in a national religious magazine on courage. Mrs. Hardt, whose home was at 508 Bodine avenue, had not been well for several years. In January she had a bad cold and complications developed. The past six weeks she had been bedfast, and the last two weeks of her life was spent in the hospital at Osceola, Iowa, where her son-in-law, Dr. Jay Shively, is the physician. She died in this hospital Monday, March 25, at 4 a. m. Elizabeth Pauly was born in Norga, Russia, October 24, 1858, the daughter of Russian born Germans. She was reared in this Russian village and when she was 16 came to the United States with her parents, a brother and a sister. They went to Sutton, Nebr., where they lived until Elizabeth Pauly, age 19, was married to Jacob Hardt, May 19. Young Hardt had also been born in Russia and had come to the new land on the same ship his bride did, but they did not meet until several months after coming to the United States. Mr. Hardt was a section foreman on a railroad and he and Mrs. Hardt lived in Grand Nebr., about 12 years. They then went to a farm near Grand Island where the children were reared. In 1906 they went to New Mexico to live five years, from there to Garland, in Henry County, where they spent several years on a farm. A few years in Mexico followed, then the family returned to Henry County, this time to a farm west of Clinton. The past seven years their home has been on Bodine avenue, where they have won the sincere love and respect of all their neighbors. Mrs. Hardt's home and her family were her greatest joys and she was unexcelled in either. Her house was always shining and clean, as immaculate as her own dainty person. She did lovely sewing and made many quilts and did other needlework for her home. It was not until her last illness that anyone ever did the work in her home except herself. With all her home duties, she always had time to help in sickness and trouble. When she lived in the country, she visited the sick for miles around, cheering and encouraging them, always willing to do anything for them, and in town she was the same helpful, kindly person. Many indeed are those whom she comforted and who call her memory blessed. The young people usually addressed her as "Grandmother" and the older ones, knowing the ready sympathy she had for everyone, knew her as "Mother." During her last hours, she never complained, although the agony was often as much as she could bear. When her loved ones leaned over her anxiously she would smile at them, and when it became evident she could not live until her daughter, whom she had not seen for six years, could reach her side she said, "I am ready to go, if it is the Lord's will." Her daughter, who is hurrying to America with her husband and two children, is Mrs. I. C. Schmidt, who has been in Java, Dutch East Indies, the past 21 years. Another son, John Hardt, is in Brazil, South America. He was home this summer with his family and returned to South America in November. A daughter, Mrs. E. C. Witzke, now of Washington, D. C., was in Germany with her husband and children four year, returning in 1925. She was with her mother nearly five weeks before her death, and another daughter, Mrs. Jay D. Shively, of Osceola, Ia., was with her about six weeks. Will Hardt was a missionary in Honduras, Central America, several years, but is now in Loma Linda, Calif. Henry Hardt resides in Elide, N. Mex., and Alfred, in Hollene, N. Mex. They were here about three weeks ago. Miss Irene Hardt is at home. Two daughters, Mrs. Henry Dickman, and Mrs. Harry Dickman, preceded her in death. A brother, John Pauly, lives in Sutton, Nebr., and there are 21 grandchildren and five great grandchildren. The body was brought to Clinton Monday night, accompanied by Mesdames Shively and Witzke, and a granddaughter, Miss Esther Dickman, of Osceola, Iowa, and Henry and Harry Dickman, who had gone from Clinton. Rev. Chas. Thompson, president of the Missouri Conference of Seventh Day Adventists, conducted funeral services at Wednesday afternoon at the First M. E. church in Clinton. Burial was in Englewood under the direction of the Wilkinson Funeral Service.

Clinton MO - Miss Lula Harpe, long a resident of LaDue, died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Hubert Whitfield, of Bloomington, Ill., at 9:30 p. m. Monday.

Lula Betty Harpe was born April 8, 1881, in LaRue County, Ky., the daughter of R. T. Harpe and Nannie B. Harpe, who came to Missouri in 1885 to the LaDue community, living in the immediate vicinity the remainder of their lives. Miss Lula was educated in the rural schools near LaDue during the years her father was actively engaged in farming and later in the LaDue schools. She found outlet for her Christian spirit in the Methodist church, drawing comfort and happiness from its contacts. As a young woman she took a position with the Fred Harvey Hotels in New Mexico and Arizona, holding it with capability and benefit to her employers for some 15 years when she gave up her business to return to LaDue to help look after her father in his declining years. Her happy presence in the home, where her small figure hurried about, lent a cheer to her father and the stepmother, who survives her. She was capable and responsible, unselfish and devoted, a fine character whose well lived life leaves its own memorial. Miss Harpe is survived by the above mentioned stepmother who for many years operated a successful hotel at LaDue and continues her residence there, one sister, Mrs. Whitfield, Bloomington, Ill., and two brothers, Forrest E.

HARRIS, Joseph "Little Joe"
1893-1937
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Joseph Harris died at 3:55 a.m. February 5, 1937, at the Veterans hospital at Excelsior Springs, after a long illness. He went to the hospital December 8, and although in a weakened condition, hoped soon to return home, strengthened enough to resume his work, for he was too independent to be idle, though physically unable to work. For the past three winters he had rested at the hospital, then came home with renewed vigor for his work. Joseph Harris, known as Little Joe Harris to his friends, was born August 10, 1893, near Budapest, Hungary. He came to the United States when a child and when nine, to Henry County, where he made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hopgood. When about 16, while working at the old pottery, he lived with Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Blumhost, who opened their hearts to the orphaned lad for his quiet disposition and sincerity made him may friends throughout his life. December 1, 1923, Mr. Harris married Miss Mary Linebeck of Clinton and to this union were born two children, a daughter Mary Jo, and son John, both of the home, and who, with his wife survive. Mr. Harris was a home-lover striving always to give his family a comfortable home. He was an enlisted soldier during the World War and received his bonus last fall. With this he purchased the present Harris residence on Lincoln street, which he enjoyed to the fullest. Tuesday of last week he wrote a letter to his wife, eagerly making plans to improve their house as soon as he was able. He was a devoted husband and father, and was delighted with his short visit with them the Saturday before his death, seemingly unaware of how close he was to his eternal home. With an ambition to achieve, possessed by few with so great an intensity, eh worked to the best of his ability. For some time he was employed by the Frisco until an accident resulted in a weakened lung, and since that time, he had had employment at the American Service Co., until his strength failed. At the last visit with his family, when they urged him to return home, he refused, saying he would return when he was strong enough to walk. His gentle companionship through the years will remain in the memory of his loved ones and their grief is softened by the thought that their dear one is relieved of his wearisome burden, and safe with the god he chose in earlier life, when he united with the Presbyterian church, striving to emulate his Master by patient struggles to overcome difficulties. The body was brought to Clinton Friday by the Wilkinson ambulance. The funeral was conducted at the First M. E. Church on Sunday. Interment at Englewood.

He had been a member of the Presbyterian church for many years. He was a devoted husband and a kind and indulgent father; to his friends the soul of fellowship. But the greatest of all was he was a man. And as a man it is that those who knew him best most love to contemplate him. He believed in the fatherhood of god and the brotherhood of man. His cheerful, helpful life; his devotion to his wife and family and kindness to everybody will long linger as a fragrant memory in the home which his presence brightened and which death has now darkened. Though he is gone and his record has been made and will remain as a lasting treasure to those he loved and by whom he was loved. His life was gentle, but like the still waters, it was deep. In his heart of hearts he carried those he loved, and his hand was never weary, his step never failed in caring for and ministering to those who were in any way dependent upon him.

HART, Margaret Ruth BAINUM
1917-2003
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, May 14 2003 - Margaret Ruth Hart, 85, Lowry City, died Monday, May 12, 2003, at Truman Lake Manor, Lowry City. She was born in Cunningham, Kansas. She married Shirley Albert Hart April 9, 1938. He preceded her in death September 30, 1975. She is survived by three daughters, Carol A. Rucker and husband LaVern of Deepwater, Judy K. Hart, Cupertino, California, and Jane . Stiglic and husband James, Lee's Summit; one brother, William Bainum and wife Harriett, Cunningham, Kansas; one sister, Beulah Denninghoff of Escondido, California; two sisters-in-law, Ruth Bainum of Hutchinson, Kansas and Ruth Hart, Melvern, Kansas; four grandchildren, Mark A. Rucker, Lisa Gurley, Monte Rucker and Stephen J. Stiglic, as well as 11 great-grandchildren. - Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, May 28 2003 - Margaret Ruth Bainum was born December 1, 1917, to Ollie Foutch and Vernon Bainum in their farmhouse in Cunningham, Kansas. Her older brother, Leo, was awaiting her arrival. She was the older sister to Beulah, born in 1919, and her little brother, William, who followed in 1925. This little brown-eyed brunette was known as Ruth. She told us that her first name, Margaret, was just too long and consequently her daughters all have nice, short names. She began her first year of schooling at Maude School to be followed the next couple of years at Meade Creek. She graduated eighth grade from Sunny Slope School. She attended Cunningham Rural High School and graduated in the class of 1936. Between walking, riding a horse and sometimes even catching a ride with a classmate on his vehicle, Ruth always arrived at school with her big brother watching close by. After graduating, Ruth entered St. Francis School of Nursing in Wichita, Kansas. Meanwhile, back in Cunningham, she attended a wedding and met a dashing young man in uniform. And "across that crowded room", that brown-eyed doll caught the eye of Shirley Albert Hart and he was smitten. They began a courtship under not only big brother's eyes, but her father Vernon, with his shotgun at ready. They agreed to her father's wishes to not marry for a year. They continued to date while she was in nursing school but fraternizing with males was forbidden. Therefore after six months, Ruth dropped out of nursing school and became a Nanny to three little boys. It was here she began to hone her skills necessary for the wonderful mother that she became. On April 8, 1938, they planned to marry, but due to a blizzard they had to follow a snow plow from Wichita into Cunningham to be married on April 9. They made their home in Wichita as Shirley was working at Beeches Aircraft Company. For a penny raise, Shirley and Ruth moved to St. Charles where their first daughter, Carol Ann was born March 28, 1939. After getting another raise, Shirley moved back to Wichita, but Ruth and Carol couldn't join him until Ruth recovered from a lung infection. They built their first home on 211 Illinois Street before the birth of their second daughter, Judy Kay, on August 27, 1940. Their happy family was then complete when the third member joined them. It was not Joe, as they expected but Jane Ellen, who arrived on March 6, 1946. Shirley fulfilled his dream of owning his own business when he purchased a Derby filling station in Sharon, Kansas, in 1952, thus moving the family there. Ruth could be found during the next 13 years, pumping gas at the Derby station, teaching Sunday School at the Christian Church or at 4-H Leadership meetings. She was always there for a friend in need or "mothering" not only her daughters, but one of her nephews or nieces. After the new highway by-passed rural Sharon, Shirley had to eventually sell the filling station. Shirley and Ruth moved to McPherson, Kansas, in the fall of 1965. Shirley went to work for Kit Mobile Homes while Ruth made a new home at 431 East Skancke. There, their lives were enriched with many new friends and their involvement at the United Methodist Church. Ruth became a widow in 1975 at the age of 58 when Shirley died suddenly from encephalitis. Ruth entered the "valley of grief" for some time, but her relationship with the Lord led her to new ministries. She loved helping widows and the elderly. She made weekly visits to the local nursing homes encouraging them with her prayers and presence. During the next 22 years, she participated in Meals on Wheels, house-sitting with elderly friends, weekly Bible studies and other church-related activities, such as sewing projects and baking. She always enjoyed her weekly neighborhood coffee gathering with some of her dearest closest friends, dragging her daughters with her, whenever they were in town. Due to the onset of Alzheimer's she sold her home in 1997 and lived with both Carol and Jane during the next 14 months. As the Alzheimer's progressed, she moved to Gran Villa, an assisted living home in Clinton. As always Ruth accepted the Lord's will, adjusting to this situation and happily made new friends there. In May 2001, needing more care, Ruth moved to Truman Lake Manor in Lowry City. After falling and breaking her hip last September, Ruth was recovering in the hospital. While she was with her daughters, she was reaching up with both hands. When they asked her what she was doing, she replied, "I want to go to heaven. Get me my shoes. I want to go to heaven." Ruth knew where she wanted to go and that was heaven, her home for eternity. She moved on Monday, May 12. She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents and two brothers, David Bainum and Leo Bainum. She is survived by her three daughters, two sons-in-law, four grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren. Carol, Judy and Jane are so thankful that they were raised in a family where Jesus was always the center and lived daily in a loving Christian environment. Her family will miss her fun-loving ways, onery tricks and silly giggles. She will be remembered for her gift of compassion for others, her always sweet spirit and her endless love for others. Funeral services were held at the Vansant-Mills Chapel on Thursday, May 15. Graveside services and burial was in the Maude Cemetery, Cunningham, Kansas, on Friday, May 16.

HARTLE, Gussie May CANNON
1871-1941
Laurel Oak Cemetery (H), Windsor, Henry Co, MO
The Windsor Review, Thursday, Jan 30 1941 - With the passing of Mrs. Gussie Hartle to the great Silent Beyond, Henry County has lost another of its pioneer citizens. Born on her father's farm near Roseland in Springfield Township in Henry County, on the 27th day of December 1871, the eldest of four children of L. D. Cannon and Laura Cannon, Gussie May Cannon spent her entire life in Henry County and passed away at her home on South Main Street in Windsor on Wednesday, January 22, 1941, at the age of sixty-nine years and twenty-six days. She was married to C. C. Hartle in Springfield township on the 28th day of February, 1897, where they made their home until they moved to Windsor in 1923, where they have lived for the past seventeen years. In early life, Mrs. Hartle accepted Christ as her savior and united with the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church, where she kept her membership until they moved to Windsor to live. She then transferred her membership to the Windsor Baptist Church, where she was been a devoted and faithful member up to the time of her death. In addition to her husband, C. C. Hartle, she leaves to mourn her passing one brother, W. H. Cannon and Reavis Jordan and one niece, Irene Jordan. Mrs. Hartle was an unusual woman in many respects, she was generous and charitable, without making a display of her generosity, unknown to the public, in the quiet way. In business her advice and judgment was sought and given to many and during the sixteen years she and her husband operated the general store at Roseland, she was ever ready and active in assisting in the management of the business. About five or six years ago her health began to fail, she has been confined to her bed most of the time for several years and during all of that time she bore her pain and suffering without complaint. Every possible effort was made to relieve her and the tender devotion of her husband was evident to everyone shown in the patient careful and loving manner in which he looked after her every need and want. No husband could have been kinder or shown more interest and attention than Mr. Hartle and while he suffered in irreparable loss, he may have comfort in the realization that he spared neither time, attention, effort nor money in giving her every possible comfort in life. Funeral services were held at the Baptist Church on Saturday, January 25th, and she was laid to rest on the family lot in Laurel Oak Cemetery.

HARVEY, Oliver Haven
1898-1907
Urich Cemetery, Bogard Twp, Henry Co, MO
Urich Hearld, Urich MO, Sep 5 1907 - Oliver Haven Harvey son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert H. Harvey of this city, was born at Urich, Mo., January 16, 1898, and was drowned in Grand River September 2, 1907, being 9 years, 7 months and sixteen days old at the time of his death. He was a remarkably, intelligent and manly little fellow and his bright and cheerful disposition and attractive ways made him a great favorite with all who knew him which included nearly everybody in the community. He was the youngest of three children, and while he was full of life and energy and fun--indeed a real boy, yet he was also of a serious thoughtful term of mind, and under the careful training of loving, Christian parents supplemented by the earnest and faithful instruction received in the Sunday School and Mission Band, he very early manifested a love for the Savior and a desire to unite with the Church, and he was very happy when this desire was gratified and he was received into the membership of the Presbyterian church January 29, 1907. Haven was a member of the primary Sunday School class which will graduate this autumn and was very enthusiastic in preparing his work. He put the same energy and enthusiasm into his church work that he did in every thing else he undertook, and at one time when there was a friendly contest between the girls and boys of the Mission Band to see which side would give the most for some good cause, Haven was so anxious for the boys to win that he emptied his pocketbook containing two dollars all that he had saved from his earnings for some time, and through his generosity the boys won. The example given by him in energetic Christian work is one that older Christians might well follow. Haven was a lover of flowers and music and loved to sing the "Glory Song," "Beautiful Little Hands" and 'Will there be any Stars in My Crown" being his favorites. The Casket was tenderly carried by six boys, members of Mrs. Harvey's Sunday School class, and was preceded by six little girls from the Mission Band, carrying the floral offerings. The large number of friends assembled gave evidence that even though Haven's life was short, it was well spent and his example will be long remembered.

He had been a sufferer from rheumatism and for the last thirteen years had been confined to his chair. He united with the Baptist church in 1879. He freely conversed upon the subject of death and ever expressed a willingness to go. In the death of Mr. Harvey was lost an affectionate husband and parent, but the loss of those left behind is his gain.

Urich Herald, Urich MO, Nov 14 1918 - Again the surges of time have rolled the dark hail low of death into one of our best homes and claimed its first born and though he had been afflicted for a number of years, with little hope of full recovery, the parental hearts are crushed with sorrow, the brother and little sister are deeply grieved and a host of friends sympathize most tenderly with Mr. and Mrs. Albert Harvey in the loss of their son, Urless V. He departed this life October 30, 1918, at the age of 27 years, 5 months and 15 days. He leaves father, mother, one brother, Clyde, of Valeria, Texas, and one sister, little Bertrice, to mourn his going. Urless was born in this city and spent the greater part of his life here. After finishing school here he entered central High School, in Kansas City, from which he graduated in 1910. The following fall he entered the University at Columbia, where he remained one year, later accepting a position with one of the Kansas City banks. It was while there that his health began to fail. He returned home thinking that rest and Mother's care might restore him to health, but to no avail, for the father and mother certainly did their utmost to help him and should be consoled with the conslonsness that they did their full duty toward him. The best thing that can be said of Urless now is that he was a Christian. He made a profession of religion and joined the Presbyterian church when a mere boy 13 years of age. He was a regular attendant of church and Sunday school until his nervous condition became such that he must stay away. The writer having been his Sunday school teacher for a number of years, can testify that his attitude, on moral and religious questions, was that of a true Christian. Eulogies are not consoling when we remember that the light of life is extinguished, the flame that kindles ambition in the breast of buoyant youth has flickered and gone out and the pulsating heart is as quiet as the hush of night. But the visions of heaven drive gloom away and the promise that "Though this earthly house of our tabernacle be dissolved, we have a building of God, and house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens," comes to us with comforting sweetness and we are reconciled. The funeral service was conducted from the home on Friday November 1,. Interment in the Urich cemetery.

He died July 27, 2004. Irvin attended school at Valley Center School, where he and his twin brother walked to school each day. He carried his lunch to school in an old syrup tin. Growing up in the Valley Center UCC, Irvin went through confirmation. He later took an active role in the church, serving on the cemetery committee and as deacon and elder for several terms. To him, working for his church was a privilege, as well as a duty. On May 9, 1954, he married Barbara Jones at Valley Center UCC. They made their home two miles north of Lowry City on the farm where they have lived for over 50 years. To this union three children were born. Later, he gladly welcomed a son-in-law and three grandchildren. His principle hobbies were collecting barbed wire samples and fishing. He loved taking his children fishing and later his nephews, Jeremy Boucher. Not only did he teach several young people to fish, but it often gave him quality time with his own children and Jeremy. He was a self-starter when it came to farming. He really appreciated the farm life, the outdoors and the responsibilities that went with the job. Melvin and Irvin were never hesitant to try a new method of product. They were the first ones to make silage out of high moister corn and had one of the first four-wheel drive pickups in the county. Irvin finally retired from farming at the age of 80 as his health declined. After retirement, his job then was watching his grandchildren grow and watching baseball games on television. He especially enjoyed the occasional trip to Branson and the music shows. Irvin very gladly served his country in World War II. He was a staff sergeant with an antitank company. His 90th Division was called the Tough Ombres. He earned several campaign ribbons, a Purple Heart, and a Bronze Star for single-handedly knocking an enemy tank out of commission.

Mr. Hayes had the misfortune of being a cripple from boyhood and had grown to depend upon the deceased as a helpless infant upon its mother. In his grief he would say: "O, how kind and devoted she has been to me through these many long years." Remains were followed to Tebo cemetery and, being no minister present, Uncle Wm. Morace offered a few very impressive remarks as condolence and a prayer for a special blessing upon the bereaved.

HENDRICK, Charles Asa "Bud"
1863-1936
Norris Cemetery, Big Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Chas. A. Hendrick, prominent farmer and beloved resident of the Cornett neighborhood, northeast of Urich, came to the end of his earthly journey about 11 a.m. Monday, March 16, at his home. Always a vital and healthy man, Mr. Hendrick had suffered few illnesses in his life, but the last week of his life he was intensely ill with pneumonia and heart trouble, so that death brought with it surcease from much pain. Charles Asa Hendrick was born November 1, 1863, near Sedalia, and as a lad came with his parents to the Bunker Hill neighborhood in southwestern Henry county. In the spring of 1881, this family moved to a farm northeast of Urich. "Bud" Hendrick, as Charles Asa was known, bought a farm adjoining his parents' place, and when his father retired from farming he bought this place, where he spent the remainder of his life. A new two-story, eight roomed house, attractive and well-built, was erected later on the old homesite. This was a large farm, always nicely kept and well-cultivated, for Mr. Hendrick believed in crop rotation and other practical methods which have proved to be the best farming practices. He was careful to till the soil when conditions were right and never slighted any of the crop routine, and as a result his crops were good and his farm prospered. He also raised hogs and Shorthorn cattle, specializing in feeding hogs for the market, and during his last illness he worried about his stock and the crops which he wanted to attend to. Always jovial, and open-handed, generous with his time and money, Mr. Hendrick was beloved by all who knew him. He was a true example of perfect Missouri hospitality, for he thought first of the welfare and comfort of others at all times, and it was to "Uncle Bud", as most of his friends knew him, that young and old alike went when they needed the advice of one who had had rich and abundant experience with life. He was widely known all over the county, and every acquaintance counted him a trustworthy friend who could be depended upon in troublesome times and who was the best of company at all times. Mr. Hendrick was converted and in 1897 joined the Hartwell Baptist Church, which he faithfully attended as long as his years permitted him. As the sun of his life began to set, he could not go so often, and at these times he read frequently of the wisdom and comfort contained in his Bible. He served for years as a director of the Cornett school district, also as clerk, always efficient and capable in this work and well-liked by all the school patrons. Miss Cora M. Norris and Mr. Hendrick were united in marriage October 5, 1892, east of Urich, at the home of her parents, and theirs was a happy, congenial life together. She survives with three of their four children, Mrs. J. F. Meyers, near Creighton; Brooksie Hendrick, on his father's farm; and Miss Inez Hendrick, of the home. There are also nine grandchildren, Billy Lynn, Donnie, Scottie Gene, Iris Lucille and Etta Sue Hendrick, Bettie Lucille, Kenneth, Chas. Henry, and Jewel Lee Meyers; two brothers, John W. Hendrick, Rosston, Okla., and Jas. R. Hendrick, Minot, N. Dak.; three sisters, Mrs. Sarah Hall, Oregon City, Ore.; Mrs. Millie Hall, Keene, Calif.; Mrs. Belle Morgan, Urich. Funeral services were conducted at the home Wednesday. Interment was in Norris cemetery with Masonic ritual by the Urich lodge, of which Mr. Hendrick was long a member.

HENDRICK, Myrtle Lula TRIBBLE
1896-1934
Bear Creek Cemetery, Bear Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - With the lodestar of her existence an unfaltering faith in the will of the Lord, it was indeed well with the soul of Mrs. Grover Hendrichs, whose home was west of Uneeda store, when the Master called her at 10 a.m. Sunday June 17, at the St. Joseph's Hospital in Kansas City. She had been in failing health for some time and had a premonition that she had been stricken with something that would take her life, so she protested against consulting a physician. About two months ago her condition became so serious that is was necessary to call upon the advice of a doctor, who found that she had an inward goiter of the worst type which numbered her days on earth. The only chance was an operation which she underwent at the St. Joseph's Hospital Saturday. The surgeons found that the poison from the goiter had penetrated to every part of her body and she never rallied. Myrtle L. Tribble was born August 7, 1896, on a farm near Leesville, Mo. A short time later she and her parents went to Illinois but returned in 1906 to the Bear Creek Neighborhood which had been her home since. She was married to Grover Hendrichs, December 22, 1915, and to their union were given four children. The daughter died in infancy, and three fine sons are left to comfort their father: Glenn, age 17, Ervin 13, and Roy 9. Mrs. Hendrichs' earthly home was built on love and service to others. She was deeply spiritual, so willing to follow the commands of the Master that she seemed not of this world but from the heavenly realm. When she was 14 she gave her soul to the keeping of her Heavenly Father when she joined the Southern Methodist church. Most of her Christian life she belonged to the Bear Creek church where she taught in the Sunday School, giving of her knowledge of the Bible and its teachings to her pupils to make a more religious world. Her boys were taught the Bible so earnestly that no children in the county are better informed on its teachings. She leaves no riches of money, land, or buildings, but she leaves the inestimable heritage of fine children to enrich the world by her having lived here. She was beloved by all the members of her family and although they mourn they know she is not dead, only gone before to await the time when they will all stand together on that heavenly shore. Mrs. Hendrichs' entire life was devoted to her family and the supreme ideal of her life was to raise her children in the way they should go. Her nature was sweet and fine, and a beloved relative said she thought only beautiful thoughts. Every opportunity that came to her on the farm was utilized for some good. Besides her husband and sons, Mrs. Hendrichs is survived by her mother, Mrs. T. M. Tribble, and younger brother and sister, Elmer and Evelyn, at 804 East Franklin street, Clinton, and the following brothers and sisters: Raymond Tribble and Mrs. Allen Hendrix, LaDue; Kenneth Tribble, Windsor; Howard Tribble and Mrs. Russell Huey, Clinton; Mrs. Warren Yahn, Garden City.

Wednesday morning he was apparently better but rapidly grew worse, and passed quietly away that evening. Henry William Hendricks was born September 10, 1870, in Morrisonville, Montgomery County, Ill.

Five fine children, with the beloved wife, survive him. They are Mrs. Arthur Farris, Mayetta, Matilda, William and John Walker Hendricks, also a son Harmon by a former marriage. Mr. Hendricks was a quiet man, never very talkative, but his cheery word of greeting and smile, won him many friends. His evenings at home were spent in making conveniences for his wife and children. His chosen profession in life was carpentry, and in that work he excelled. He was one of the men who constructed the new Eye office last year, the monument of his conscientious labor will live in this building as in other works of like nature to which he gave honest measure. He had a prominent part in the Woodmen of the world lodge, and just ten days before his death, became a representative of the Mid-State Life Insurance co. His was a life filled with constructive labor, lightened with strong enduring friendships. He was kindly, sincere, and upright, with no pretense to cloud his character. Mr. Hendricks was the first of ten children to be taken. One sister, Mrs. Mary Hargis of Springfield, Ill., had not seen him for twenty years, and on the Tuesday he became ill, she arrived for a visit, and on the Wednesday after, a daughter of Mrs. Hargis' came. However, they left, never dreaming of the sadness that was so soon to follow in this home.

HENDRIX, Mary Ann PARKS
1864-1928
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mary Ann Hendrix was born April 26, 1864, in Macon County, MO, and passed away Tuesday, February 14, 1928, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. John Peters, of Independence, Mo. Her maiden name was Mary Ann Parks. On October 6 1878, she was united in marriage with James Hendrix at Albany, MO. Mr. Hendrix was a Civil War veteran, having served in Co. M, 21st, New York Calvary. In company with her husband and children, Mrs. Hendrix came to Clinton more than 20 years ago. Her youngest children receiving their education in the Mt. Carmel school first, later moving to Brownington, where the family lived for several years. While still a young woman, she united with the Baptist Church, and her long and active life was lived beautifully, serenely in accordance with the teachings of the Master, whom she always worshipped, every day, a day of useful service, busy and happy in her home with her husband and their children. Weakened in health by his military service, her husband became an invalid and was very ill and finally bedfast, passing away at Kansas City, March 18, 1919. Throughout the years of his invalidism, she was devoted, untiring nurse, unsparing of her health, strength in caring for him. After his passing, she made her home with her youngest daughter, Mrs Georgie Peters, but loved to travel, and spent much of her time visiting with old friends, and relatives in Northern Missouri, and at various cities throughout the state. Her disposition was always genial, always ready to smile, willing to help any of her children and friends in trouble, and glad to rejoice with them in all their happiness. Although her body became frail and her health uncertain, she never gave up. In past years, she suffered several serious attacks of heart trouble, but seemingly always regained her strength and visited among her children and relatives as before. Last summer, she was bedfast at the Peters home for weeks, the doctors giving her family no hope for her recovery, but again she rallied, and had been unusually well, and cheerful for the past months, visiting her sons and a daughter in Deepwater, and Lowery City, recently. Last Tuesday afternoon at the Peters home in Independence, she sat in her big rocking chair, and in a phone conversation with another daughter, Mrs. Schoof, of the same city, was commenting to her daughter how well she felt. Mrs. Peters, in an adjoining room, heard her mother replace the phone on its desk, and a few moments later little John Eugene Peters ran in to his mother saying that "Grandma" had gone to sleep in her chair again.

HENDRIX, Richard R.
1866-1899
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, June 3 1899 - On May 25, 1899, as the beautiful roses are blooming with all their fragrance, as the birds in their beautiful warble flit from tree to tree, the busy people are going hither and thither with joyful hearts. But, listen! A funeral bell is pealing forth its solemnity. We listen. We are being told that death is abroad in the land. The pitcher is broken at the fountain, the horary headed father and mother are made to weep, the young wife to mourn, the little child cries to see papa. R. R. Hendrix is dead. He was born in Audrain County in 1865, coming to Henry County with his parents when but a few years old, locating in Brownington, moving to Calhoun in 1878, and living there since, except for a year or more in southern Texas. In 1892, he married Miss Della Beaty, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Beaty. They were blessed with one daughter, now five years old. Mr. Hendrix's health began to fail three years ago. He was advised to change climate and there were two seasons in Texas, but doctors there advised him his life was fast ebbing away. Mr. Beaty, being advised of his condition, went after him more than six weeks ago. They arrived here about the 26th of April and after a month of suffering, the spirit of R. R. Hendrix took its flight. It seems but yesterday that we knew him as a robust rosy-cheeked school boy. The time seems short when we saw him on the brick wall wielding the trowel. It seems but a few days that he was riding over hill and dale buying hay and grain. Nothing we can say will stop the throbbing heart or the scalding tear, for we are told even the Saviour of mankind wept. The deceased was a Presbyterian and leaves his parents, wife and child and one sister, Mrs. C. K. Hoffman of Pilot Grove. His remains were laid to rest at the cemetery on the farm of Alec Beaty.

Bethlehem Cemetery, Bethlehem Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - C. C. Hurst Found Dead - Weak Heart Fatal to Calhoun Man Was Found In Cabin on So. Second St. - Relatives Here - About 10:30 a.m. November 8, 1938, at one of the sleeping cabins of H. L. Shriner at 1007 South 2nd Street, Mr. Hurst was found lying full length on the floor, on his back, in the small bathroom, dressed the same as he was in the afternoon when he made arrangements for the cabin except for house slippers on his feet. He had been dead several hours. In one hand was a wet cloth and under the body was a folded blanket, as it had fallen or been dropped to the floor. Papers in the pockets included tax receipts from Bethlehem township. His address was Calhoun, route 1. The bed had not been turned down, and on it was a leather lined coat, also pair of overalls rolled up. His grip was still locked and strapped. A blanket was found in a chair before the gas heater which had been turned out as were the lights. In the bathroom was his own glass containing water. The heater had been lighted after he registered for the room about mid-afternoon. He was last seen alive by Mr. and Mrs. Roy Shriner at the filling station about 7:00 or 7:30 p.m. when he left the station to go to his cabin. He had been there since about 6:00 p.m. When Mr. Hurst failed to appear that morning, Mr. Shriner became uneasy and after 10:00 went to the cabin and looked through the window; seeing an orderly room he thought Mr. Hurst had gone for breakfast. The bed appeared as they had left it, and this worried him, so he again returned to the cabin, pushed open the door which had a chair against it; called, and when there was no answer, looked about and found the body. Dr. S. B. Hughes, coroner, was called and found that death apparently was caused by heart failure. Mr. Hurst had rented a sleeping cabin at Shriner's a few nights before and remarked how pleased he was. His 1926 touring car had been put in the Shriner oil room for the night. Sheriff Dalton Davis notified deceased's sister, Mrs. John Huey, near Calhoun. He also has a brother, Joseph, southeast of Clinton, who was in Kansas City Tuesday, with his wife as the latter underwent an operation there. Charles Campbell Hurst was born November 5, 1876 on the farm six miles southeast of Clinton where his parents began their married life, and lived there until the death of both parents, his father in 1929 and his m other in August 1934. He attended the Bethlehem School and as a young man was converted and united with the Freedom Christian Church. He grew up a farmer, as was his father, successful at tilling the land and interested in stock raising. A dutiful son, giving loyal devotion and love to his parents he led a simple, quiet life, a man of few words but deep thought. He enjoyed the radio and reading and was held in the highest respect by his neighbors and friends among whom his whole life was spent. After the death of his beloved mother, for whom he had the most tender regard, he went to live at the home of his niece, Mrs. Chas. Rank, near Calhoun. Here he was equally loved and respected for his unassuming kindness and affable cooperation in the home. He was a good visitor and enjoyed limited travels, his interest in new faces and scenes never failing. Surviving Mr. Hurst are one sister, Mrs. John Huey of near Calhoun and one brother, Joseph Hurst of southeast of Clinton also four nieces: Mrs. Rank, above mentioned, Mrs. Steve Cole, Mrs. Bert Warner and Miss Tracey Huey, all of the Calhoun neighborhood. Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m. Thursday, November 10, at the Bethlehem Baptist Church. Wilkinson Funeral Service in charge.

HERST, Sylvestor Clay
1852-1929
Bethlehem Cemetery, Bethlehem Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Passed away on Tuesday night, January 8, 1929, the spirit of Sylveston Clay Herst departed this life and returned to the God who gave it, at the age of 77 years, 2 months and 13 days. He was born October 25, 1852, to Campbell and Sallie M. Herst, in McDonald county, Illinois, the fifth of a family of six - three daughters and three sons, all of whom had preceded him into the Great Beyond, with the exception of one sister, Mrs. C. E. Cheatham, who is now the sole survivor of this family. The deceased came to Henry county in the year of 1856, with his parents, who settled on a farm five miles southeast of Clinton. At the death of his father and mother, he acquired the old home place, where he lived until his death. He was united in marriage on December 25, 1875, to Josephine Harvey, daughter of Mrs. and Mrs. Joseph Harvey, at her father's home, near Good Hope. To this union two sons and one daughter were born, namely: Campbell, at home; Mrs. John Huey of near Calhoun, and Joe, of Clinton, who with his wife, mourn the loss of a devoted husband and father. He is also sadly missed by four grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and a great host of admirers and friends. In early life, he united with the Freedom Christian church, of which his father and mother were charter members. To this little country church on the corner, he was always loyal. At all times, ready and willing to assist in any way he could. This family, with others, made this church one of the long cherished spots of Henry county. The building was destroyed some years ago, but the spot is still cherished by those, who by undying efforts, made Freedom church possible; and to this little band of Christian workers, none other can take its place hence their names are still on the roll of Freedom church members and God will richly reward such loyalty to the little church, which brought so many souls into His Kingdom. The deceased was kind, modest, retiring, and of a sunny disposition. His acquaintances, both young and old, cherished his friendship. He was the same wherever you met him and slow to use a censure of any fellow being. Blessed are such men. He enjoyed the companionship of his loved ones and was a great lover of home. He and his son, Campbell, at home, were great pals and always cherished the devoted wife and mother, who with untireing efforts looked after their every need. He lived on the same farm seventy-three years and was highly respect through all these years by his neighbors. Such is a record of which anyone should justly be proud. The funeral services were conducted from the Bethlehem church on January 10, 1929, after which the remains were tenderly laid to rest in Bethlehem cemetery, where his father, mother, one sister and one brother already sleep.

HESS, Virginia Lee HARLAN
1929-2017
Laurel Oak Cemetery (H), Windsor, Henry Co, MO
On October 29, 1929, the stock market crashed, heralding the Great Depression. In an effort to distract from the bleak mood in Kansas City, Missouri, Virginia Lee Harlan was born. The first child of Joseph Wayne Harlan and Kate Elizabeth Sims Harlan, she was also the eldest grandchild of both her Harlan and Sims grandparents. Virginia took this leadership role very seriously, organizing many family functions over the next several generations. She grew up in Independence, Missouri, attending Rock Creek Elementary School and Rockwood Baptist Church and was a 1947 graduate of William Chrisman High School. Her love of travel began as a tot, as she took frequent solo train trips to visit grandparents in Salisbury, Missouri. At the age of five, a missed communication resulted in her arrival at the Salisbury train station with no one expecting her. Ever the independent one, she picked up her bag and, using her nose for navigation, made the long walk to her grandparents' home without a care. She never lost that sense of direction and in later years was known to argue with GPS devices relied on by her navigationally-impaired daughters – and of course she was usually right. After four fun-filled years living in Yeater Hall, "Ginny" graduated from Central Missouri State College in 1951 and moved to Bethany, Missouri, where she taught junior and senior high school art and social studies. During the summers between 1950 and 1956, she worked at Camp Bob White in Knob Noster State Park, moving up from camp counselor to unit leader and then program director for four years. She often described that experience as one of the most rewarding periods in her life when she made many lasting friendships. In 1953, ready for another adventure, she packed her bags and moved to Roswell, New Mexico, where a teaching position awaited. She adopted the Land of Enchantment as her own and had the time of her life over the next several years with a talented and stimulating group of comrades who became lifelong friends. On July 25, 1956, she married Robert E. Hess in Deming, New Mexico, and began a new chapter. In August of 1957, they and their infant daughter moved to Columbia, Missouri, where Bob was enrolled in the University of Missouri Veterinary School and where many more friendships got their start. Virginia worked for Christian College for the next few years and added two more daughters to the family. After vet school graduation in 1961, the family moved to LaBelle, Missouri, made more enduring friendships, and added a fourth daughter. In January of 1965, the move was made to Windsor, Missouri, where Virginia lived for the next 44 years, raising a family, managing the veterinary office, and serving as librarian in Windsor schools for more than twenty years. She was an active member of the Windsor United Methodist Church, Keystone Club, Delta Kappa Gamma, and was a 50-year member and past president of Chapter BA, P.E.O. After retiring from the Windsor Schools in 1991, Virginia earned her real estate license and spent twelve years with Marchbanks Realty, enjoying every minute of her new career. Virginia felt that moving to Windsor was one of the best decisions she and Bob ever made, especially moving in next door to Walter and Josephine Moser. The lasting friendships made in Windsor were a priceless treasure. Virginia never lost her wanderlust and traveled as often as she could. Favorite destinations were northern England, Nova Scotia, and always the state of New Mexico. She enjoyed road trips, always taking the scenic route, and made several long train trips with family around the USA. Virginia was very close to her extended family of cousins and may hold the record for attendance at family reunions. She was a proud member and sponsor of the Harlan Family in America Association and attended every national reunion in different regions of the country over the years, until this year when health would not allow. "Vivi," as the younger ones called her, believed she lived a charmed life and was thrilled to be part of her grandchildren's lives as she watched them grow into adulthood. She encouraged their love of adventure by taking them on special trips and presented each with a handmade quilt upon graduation from high school. She was also invested in the lives of the next generation, delighting in their activities. After returning to her hometown of Independence in 2009, Virginia spent eight fabulous years at Apple Tree Condominiums where she enjoyed active involvement with the community and her many new friends. It was there in her home, amidst the lights and music of Christmas and with her four girls at her side, that Virginia passed from this life she loved in the early morning of December 21, 2017. Ten years ago she closed a written life story with these words: "Life for me has been just one small adventure after another, and I am grateful for every helping hand that has been extended to me through the years. My friends and my family have been precious to me, and I have strived to transform each house into a home, for home is where the heart is.

To them was born one daughter, Anna Elizabeth, now Mrs. Harold Gray of Kansas City, to whom she was a perfect mother as she knew so well the requisites necessary for creating a wholesome and happy home. It was a beautiful companionship and devotion which existed between Mrs. Hetherington and her helpmeet and and they were seldom away from each other. When Mr. Hetherington was not at work, they were always seen together and each evening enjoyed a ride around town or to a friend's home as she loved people and forgot her own welfare in doing something for others. One of her closest friends was Mrs. Ida Gray and during the day one usually saw the two together as they would shop and visit about. She and Mrs. Gray enjoyed exchanging their glad bulbs and blossoms as this was Mrs. Hetherington's choice flower, although she was a lover of all flowers. Mrs. Hetherington adored children. She had also made herself a favorite of all the neighbors in the community. Even though the end was untimely, to her family, friends and acquaintances, she left memorable examples of living that are worthy of emulation. She loved life itself and derived the utmost out of living. Everything and everyone meant enjoyment and fun to her. Mr. and Mrs. Hetherington moved to Clinton six years ago and last spring moved to their present home at 512 South Orchard. Besides her heartbroken husband, daughter and parents, she is survived by a sister, Mrs. Clara Wheeler of near Clinton, two brother, Calvin Norcross of Blairstown and Howard Norcross of Centerview.

Clinton Eye, Thursday, Aug 2 1951 - Services for Pfc. Donald R. Hibbs, 18-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Hibbs, 221 West Tebo, who gave his life for his country September 23, 1950, in the Korean War, the second Henry County life to be so sacrificed, will be held at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, August 5, at the Clinton Methodist Church. The body of this fine looking youth arrived from Korea on the Frisco at 10:30 a.m., Aug 2. Donald enlisted Jan. 18, 1949, at Roswell, N.M., while his parents were residents of that state and the Clinton youth was only 17 years of age, so necessarily his mother signed her permission for his entry into service. Four of his brothers before him had marched to Uncle Sam's command. He received his basic at Fort Ord, Calif., and after 14 weeks' training in the infantry was sent to Japan. Always his letters to his mother admonished her not to worry, and the wish of this soldier to visit with his brother, Charles, located in Japan, was granted when the boys spent a night together in May, 1949. The message of his death was received Oct. 11, 1950, by his parents, and it was the first break in the family circle of 11 children. The other four sons had served as follows. Three of the boys were in World War II, Carl serving 32 months with the 53rd Armored Engineers in the European Theatre; Dennis, three years in the air corps of the Pacific Zone, and James W., also three years with the Ordanace Department in New Guinea. Charles Hibbs had served 32 months in Japan. Besides the above named and his parents, Donald leaves two other brothers, William S., of Kansas City and Grady, Clinton. The latter fell from a tree at the family home last Tuesday morning when he was making a swing for his small nieces. The arm bones were splintered at the shoulder which has resulted in much suffering and an operation is necessary before the fracture can be reduced. A piece of the bone wedged into a muscle has caused sleepless nights and days for this popular 15-year-old lad, a junior this year in Clinton High School. The sisters are: Mrs. Dorothy Loyd, Mrs. Chester Kanoy, Warrensburg, Grace Ann and Mary Icea of the home. The maternal grandmother, whom all the children adore, is in California on a visit with her son. Pfc. Hibbs was born May 23, 1932, at the home on Tebo. He attended Clinton schools and Sunday School at the local Methodist Church. His hobby was fishing and hunting before he entered the service. Sympathy is extended to the family which has given five boys in service, with the life of one sacrificed for liberty.

HILL, Thomas Duane
1939-2004
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Apr 28 2004 - Thomas Duane Hill of Leawood, Kansas (formerly of Clinton) was born December 27, 1929, in Southgate, California, to Lester and Louise Hill. He died Tuesday, April 6, 2004. Tom grew up in western Kansas where is father worked for City Services. They lived in company housing near Ulysses, Kansas. Tom graduated from Satanta High School in 1957. Tom often told the story of riding on the athletic bus and being kicked off. The driver would always drop him off about a mile from home and make him walk. He never told us the reason for his punishment, but only about that long walk home. Tom attended many colleges and had many jobs, but his career in the air movement industry began as a purchasing agent for Siemen Manufacturing. Charlie Jones helped start him on his long career. In 1962, Tom began work with Bill Richow at Ruskin Manufacturing. Ruskin was his passion for he loved the excitement of landing the sale, purchasing the bearing at a lower price, dealing with the union or developing his employees to think and voice their ideas. Ruskin, with Tom's help and the help of many employees and reps, who he considered family, grew into a leader in the damper and louver industry. tom enjoyed the hog roasts that became a company tradition. The fun of cooking the hog, experimenting with new recipes and building the many cookers led to many fun times with everyone at Ruskin. His yearly fishing and hunting trips were Tom's favorite times. He was known to fall asleep early while the rest of the group continued to party. At one fishing trip, he suddenly woke up and told one of the young men to cut his hair and lose the earring. Everyone can remember some advice that Tom gave them. Tom's last job was at American Power and Process in Clinton. This time he built really big air movement products. Tom and Georgeann worked together for three years and Steve started his career alongside his father. Tom married Georgeann in 1966. They met at a baseball game at which he was coaching American Legion Baseball in Harrisonville. They were married on June 25, Georgeann chose that date so Tom would only have to remember three numbers, 25, 26, and 27, the wedding date, her birthday and his birthday. The only problem was he could not remember what month. Their honeymoon was also his first business trip for Ruskin. They went to New Orleans with stops along the way that paid for the trip. Tom gave Georgeann many wonderful memories, a hot air balloon ride, a trip to a beauty spa, a family vacation in Hawaii and a chance to eat different foods, such as steamed clams. They went many places on business and pleasure, such as South Carolina, California, Florida, Arizona and New York, where she was able to teach him how to hail a New York cab. It was always interesting being with Tom, as many of you know. He would bum cigarettes because he didn't like the look of the pack in his shirt pocket. He will always be special to Georgeann for the kindness and love he showed her family. Melinda was born in 1972 and Steve in 1977. Early in both their lives, they loved to go fishing with their dad. Fishing meant that as soon as the boat stopped, the baited hook and pole were to be in the water. Of course, Tom overlooked the fact that Steve wanted food and Melinda wanted to read her book. Then he would get mad because they were catching fish before he could get his pole in the water. But as the years progressed they learned to bait their own hooks, Steve was the boat driver and Melinda the fish expert. We enjoyed many trips with friends, fishing in Canada with the Skidmores and the Gunkels, camping trips with the Hills, the Trents, the Bremsons and the Washburns. We spent many a time sleeping in a car due to a leaking tent or crowded in an outhouse due to the rain. Tom always enjoyed fishing, hunting, golf, football and baseball games with his friends, Norman, George, Jerry Sherman, Joe, and especially, Fred. Because of these friendships he loved his life and had great times. Tom was preceded in death by his father and stepfather. After his father's death, Tom never changed the oil in his car, the one thing he loved doing with his father. Melinda will miss her father's financial advice, running errands, fishing, traveling and watching old movies. Steve will miss his expert advice on a job when he already knows how to do the job, their love of music and traveling. Both of them will miss his sense of humor and just hanging out with him. Tom is survived by his mother Louise, who will miss his company; his brother Sam, who will miss their weekly ag tours around Clinton; his sister-in-law Linda, and nephew Grady. Tom's ashes will be spread at Truman Lake where he spent his last years. He wanted to retire and live deep in the woods at Truman Lake. Memorial services were held at Vansant-Mills Chapel, Clinton, Tuesday, April 13.

HILLEGAS, George A.
1854-1889
Mt. Zion Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Mar 23 1889 - Boiler explosion last Friday , a short time before noon , a boiler of the engine at the a small grist mill at Mt. Zion, in Osage township, exploded with appalling and frightful results. George Hillegas , owner and engineer, was so badly wounded he lived only until 3 o'clock of the evening of the sad occurrence. Doctors were called the he was beyond all earthly help. One leg was broken, face on right side was scalded by the steam in his hands were in the same condition and also badly scratched but the wound that most probably caused his death was a cut across the lower and left part of the abdomen. The cut was near six or seven inches in length and also completely opened the abdomen. He suffered extreme agony for the three hours he lingered but up to the very last he maintained consciousness and was perfectly rational. He had a habit of letting the shovel handle rest against him while opening the furnace door and it is believed that the shovel was the instrument that inflicted the mortal wound. A visit to the mill, or what is left of it, shows the terrible power of gas. The engine was of the ordinary threshing machine kind, 12 horsepower. The crown sheet gave way , tearing out the whole front end of the boiler. The whole east end of the building was knocked clean. And the rest of the boiler took an aerial trip, flying over the grist mill, knocking over a young man named Dirk and severely scalding him, then passing over a girder and cutting off a six inch post just above as clean as you can break a chair round with a poker. The boiler scooped out quite a pit in the ground when it landed. The west end of the building was knocked out as clean as the east and on every side there was destruction. Al Johnson, who was standing in the door on the north end of the mill, was pretty well knocked out but got to Hillegas, who was resting upon his elbow. His home was some half a mile south of the accident but was taken to Douglas's store north of the mill and was kept there until he was carried to the church at Mt. Zion the next evening at 3. Long before the funeral, people had assembled from the country for miles around. Everyone was deeply affected and many were the tears that were shed. It was a severe blow to his aged mother, the widowed wife of Judge Hillegas, for only last June her son, Martin, brother of George, was killed by lightning only a little over one-fourth of a mile west of where George met his death. George was born in Allen County, Ind. August 5, 1854. His parents moved to Henry County soon after and eventually located one half mile south of Mt. Zion Church. He was a Methodist, was married and leaves a wife to mourn his loss. The deplorable accident was a sad blow to his family.

1872-1934
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Life's sufferings, joys, and sorrows were brought to a close for Mrs. J. P. Hite at 12:10 p.m. Sunday, December 2, at her home at the Hite filling station, south of Clinton on Highway 13. She had been in failing health for several years, but June 1933, she became much worse; however, it was several months later before she was willing to consult a physician, and when she did, he found that she had an incurable malady. She was taken to a Kansas City hospital where all possible was done to relieve her suffering and they were able to prolong her life for some months. She returned to Clinton in a few weeks and was able to be up much of the time the first part of 1934. However, she grew worse and since July she had been bedfast much of the time and for the last few weeks her sufferings were intense. She was tenderly cared for during her long illness by her daughters, and daughters-in-law, but from May to August, before her condition grew so serious, her granddaughters, Misses Lillian May Hite and Georgianna Graham took week about keeping house for their grandmother and giving her the best of care. Those weeks were most precious to these young girls, who adored this good woman, and she was deeply happy in having them there as they understood homemaking and the care of an invalid as well or better than many much more mature. Della Ann Combs was born March 6, 1872, 12 miles from Versailles, Mo., in Morgan county, where she grew to young womanhood. February 19, 1890, she married to J. P. Hite at Medicine Lodge, Kansas. They stayed in Kansas for a few months, then came to Henry county and lived on a farm near Huntingdale for a time. About five years later they came to Clinton where Mr. Hite became an agent of the Singer sewing machine and Clinton has been their home since. Married when just a little past 17, the supreme service of Mrs. Hite's life was that of homemaking for her beloved husband and the mothering of their children. She possessed a great share of the mother love instinct, which made her want to care and protect not only her own children but every lonesome, unmothered bit of humanity. She and her husband were inseparable companions and in the years when he went over the county with the sewing machines in his wagon, demonstrating to the housewives the qualities of his wares, she would accompany him, advising him on every occasion how best to make the sales. In every way she was helpful and unselfish, putting the happiness and well-being of everyone else before herself. She was thoroughly alert to every situation until her illness, and her sparkling black eyes never entirely lost the glow of youth. Her constitution was strong, enabling her to keep ever busy at her household duties and other tasks. After her children were grown about 16 years ago she bought a hemstitching machine, the first in Clinton and until her health failed she kept up this work. Part of the time she was in the Cozart Hotel building, and for many years on the first floor of the old Eye office building on South Main street. Her fingers were also frequently occupied with fancywork, and at Christmas she sold the daintily stitched articles she had made. Many years ago she was converted and became a devout member of the M. E. Church south. Her nature was forgiving and she followed the Master's teachings. Mrs. Hite's greatest pleasure was when her children came home or when her brothers and sisters visited her. She made their home on East Ohio street across from Washington school, hospitable and always open to her loved ones, also to friends of the family. Mr. and Mrs. Hite purchased the Cities Service filling station several years ago. it was operated at first by their son Harry, and later they took it over themselves, Mrs. Hite converting the service station into a cozy home filled with her love. Seven children were given their union. Those who survive are Mrs. George F. Graham, West Gravel street; Mrs. P. W. Reed, south side square; Pharies P. Hite, Springfield; Harry Hite of the home. There are 14 grandchildren. She also leaves two brothers and two sisters: James E. Combs, Florence, Mo.; R. W. Combs, Tipton, Mo.; Mrs. Belle Sparks, Kansas City, Kansas; Mrs. Elizabeth Schupp, Sedalia. The funeral was conducted by Dr. Alexander at the M. E. Church South Tuesday afternoon. Burial in Englewood.

HITE, Harry Donald Sr.
1904-1937
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - The earthly existence of Harry P. (should be Harry D.) Hite, operator of the Hite Filling station on highway 13, near Lindstrom's Hatchery, was brought to a close shortly after 4:00 p.m. September 3, 1937, at the filling station where he suffered a heart attack. He had not been feeling well for three or four days and that day had complained of being weak and tired. He was lying on a day bed, enjoying one of his favorite recreations, reading, when he said to his wife, who was with him, "Oh, my heart is jumping so hard," straightened, and fell back, dead. Drs. James O. Smith and S. B. Hughes were called but Mr. Hite was beyond medical aid when they arrived. His sister, Mrs. George Graham, of Osceola, and brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. P. P. Hite, of Jasper, who, with their son, Junior, and daughter, Mrs. Matilda Houk, and baby of Kansas city had visited Mr. Hite that morning, returned to the filling station to see him again for a few minutes after his death. They remained with the bereaved wife. Another sister, Mrs. Paul Reed, and daughter, Della Maxine, of Harrisonville, came that evening. Mr. Hite was born in Clinton, April 28, 1904, to Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Hite, and here he was reared. After attending high school a year, he enrolled at the old Holy Rosary Academy for a business course and later worked at the William F. Crome bottling plant, and at various other places in Clinton, operating the filling station the past two months. In early manhood, he went to Idaho, where at Burley on December 31, 1923, he was married to Miss Sarah Mae Hagman. Three daughters were born to this union. Two years after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Hite returned to Clinton and have since resided here. Mr. Hite enjoyed outdoor activities, including baseball and other sports. He derived much pleasure from his last position. Although not unexpected, the death of his father, which occurred two weeks before his, grieved Mr. Hite deeply, but their separation proved of short duration. During life his father and mother guarded their son's health, for since boyhood his heart had been weak following an attack of inflammatory rheumatism. After his mother's death about two years ago, his father became dearer to him. He was fond of his daughters and proud of the progress his talented elder daughter, Ellen Jean, was making as a pianist, never wearying of hearing her, and often asking her to play for him at evening. He was beloved by his wife, and they founded their home on mutual love and despite the trials of life which come, their years together will ever be a happy memory with her. Of the immediate family he is survived by his wife and children of the home, Ellen Jean, aged 12, Rose Ann, 9, and Mary Louise 7; two sisters, Mrs. George Graham and Mrs. Paul Reed, and a brother, P. P. Hite of Jasper. Funeral services were conducted Sunday at the Consalus & Peck funeral Home. Burial at Englewood.

HITE, John Pharis
1861-1937
Englewood Cemetery (H), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - J. P. Hite, for many years a well known resident of Clinton, died at Jasper, Mo., at 11:20 p.m. Friday, at the home of his son, Pharis, after but a few weeks of critical illness which kept him in bed but 16 days. Mr. Hite had not been well for some time but his family, who gave him every care they were able, had no idea the trouble was destined to take their father so soon. John Pharis Hite, born January 12, 1861 on a farm in Ohio, the son of James and Elizabeth Stevenson Hite who moved to Missouri when their son was a boy of 12 years of age. They lived near Schell City and Roscoe for a short time then moved to Kansas in 1884, near Pratt Center where the father continued farming and where John Paris grew to manhood. Here he met his wife, Miss Della Ann Combs of Glendale, Mo., who was visiting her sister on a farm adjoining that of the Hite's. February 19, 1890 Mr. Hite and Miss Combs were united in marriage and the fall of that same year came to Missouri, spending the winter on a farm near LaDue moving in the spring to a farm near Huntingdale. One year later they moved east of town, coming in 1895 to Clinton which remained their home. In 1896 Mr. Hite became the agent for Singer Sewing Machines which business he was in until seven years ago, when they built the Service Station a half mile south on highway 13. Here his wife died December 2, 1934 and in June of this year Mr. Hite left it in charge of his son Harry, and went to visit his other children. He was for a time in Osceola with his daughter, Mrs. George F. Graham and in the hospital at Topeka, Kans., going three weeks ago to visit his son Pharis and family. Here the end came, his heart trouble being the immediate cause of death, though other maladies had complicated his suffering. Mr. Hite who was so many years associated with the Singer co., was a well known figure about town and especially to the house wives of the community whom he had served so affably and well when selling them new machines or reconditioning old ones. He was a natural mechanic and enjoyed his work, understanding it thoroughly. He had a kind, good heart, and when payments were due on machines in homes where money was scarce or crops had failed he would take corn, cows, quilts or vegetables to carry them over and let the machine stay. Mr. Hite was a member of the Christian church though he had never moved his membership to Clinton. He was a member of the security Benefit Association and enjoyed the relaxation of hunting and fishing at which he was well skilled. He had a bright and accurate mind, enjoying the papers and radio and when the service station was built on highway 13 he did much of the figuring of lumber and materials that represented a practical saving. Mr. Hite was a kind and good father, fair and considerate of his children, four of whom remain to mourn his passing, Harry of Clinton, Mrs. Paul Reed of Harrisonville, Mrs. George F. Graham of Osceola and Pharis of Jasper. Three children had preceded their father in death. Fourteen grandchildren and one great grandchild are also left. The funeral services were Sunday afternoon at the Consalus and Peck Funeral home and the body was laid to rest in Englewood beside his wife.

HIX, Mary Alice LEHEW
1862-1936
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - The funeral services of Mrs. M. A. Hix were held February 20, in the Baptist Church at Brownington. Mary Alice, the daughter of Peter and Elizabeth Lehew, was born near Clayton, Illinois, August 27, 1862. Later the same year Mr. Lehew brought his family to Missouri where Mary Alice grew to young womanhood. It was here she met and married Francis Marion Hix in 1882. Mr. and Mrs. Hix spent the first part of their married life in Benton county but later moved to Brownington. It was here in April, 1912, that Mr. Hix passed on. One by one the mother's brood of five children left the parental roof seeking homes of their own. Mrs. Hix then made her home alone with her pet dog and kitten. For many years she lived on Main Street in the little white cottage surrounded by hollyhocks. She happily and quietly made her living by utilizing her hobbies, knitting and quilting, for a livelihood. Many homes throughout the United States have a knitted rug, a dainty knitted centerpiece, or a bright colorful quilt that has been a work of art from the hands of this noble woman. All of her grandchildren's first shoes were bootees knitted by Grandmother Hix - as well as woolly sweaters and caps. Mrs. Hix, ever religious, united in early youth with the Methodist Church and later transferred her membership to the Baptist church, where she was a staunch and devoted worker. No duty in the church was too lowly for her to perform. She was ever confident that His sustaining love would supply all her human needs and this undaunted faith was never left unfed. For many years she taught the primary class of the Baptist Sunday school. She worked untiringly with these young ones of the Great Shepherd's fold and loved them dearly, and they in turn reflected the love to her that she bestowed upon them. Mrs. Hix's faith in her Lord was deep and abiding, and though her hands were busy from morning to night she always had time to read His word. While her babies were little, she often churned with one hand, rocked the cradle with a foot and held the Bible in her lap and read it as she worked. In later years, when she provided for herself by doing quilting, she said she had never been hungry or cold or without clothes. Someone always sent her some quilting or needlework to do or one of her children sent her money when she needed it, so she knew her Master heard her prayers and never failed to answer them. Mrs. Hix lived in Missouri until 1933 when her health failed and she went to live with her son, J. M. Hix, in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. She spent the remainder of her life there, being confined to her bead most of the time. February 17 at 1:26 a.m. she passed on. She was 73 years, 5 months and 21 days of age. Her son J. M., brought her body back to Brownington where it was placed in beautiful Maplewood cemetery beside her husband. Mrs. Hix has a host of relatives and friends in the states of Missouri and Oklahoma to mourn her passing. Five of her seven children are living, two of whom were unable to come for the funeral, J. O. Hix, of Laramie, Wyo., and John H. of Oklahoma City. The other three are Mrs. Shelly Crook of Clinton; A. B. Hix, Laramie, Wyo., and J. M. Hix of Okmulgee, Okla., also eight grandchildren.

HOBBS, William H.
1858-1888
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Mar 17 1888 - William H. Hobbs is no more. On Friday morning at fifteen minutes past two, he breathed his last, beloved friend and citizen. Born June 6, 1858 in Lincoln county, Ky., moved with his parents to Lee county, Va., when he was about ten. Received his collegiate education at Cumberland College in Lee county and was a professor there for two years after he graduated. The Cumberland Eagle, in giving a history of this college, paid a nice tribute to Prof. Hobbs. He was always an exemplary boy and at the age of 18, he professed religion. In 1883, he was ordained as a minister of the Christian Church, the same year he cast his lot with the people of Henry County, Missouri. Since living here, he has taught school at Huntingdale, Freedom, Brownington and Glendale. He was fearless in denouncing evil; meek and humble in preaching Jesus. While he was conscientious and firm in his belief, he was not arrogant or selfish. He labored for the benefit of mankind and the salvation of souls. Two years ago, when the Brownington Building and Loan Association was organized, he was elected secretary. He assumed full control of the Brownington Argus about the last of October, 1887 and has been a courteous and able editor. His articles were forceful and pungent. He wrote fearlessly. His physicians forbade his preaching several months before his death and he went to California, but finding the climate could not benefit him, returned home. He married Miss Mattie Taylor, daughter of our respected citizen, Dr. M. B. Taylor. They had been married two years, nine months and nine days. He leaves one child, a bright little girl. While Drs. Taylor and Hardeman knew his disease, consumption, was fatal, they did not grow impatient or weary trying to ease him in every possible way. About a month before he died, his kind mother and one brother arrived from Virginia. Everyone knows what a boon it is to have a kind mother to cool a fevered brow. Another brother arrived about a week before he died. His companions were always waiting to catch any word to assist him or wait upon him, so while he died far from his native land, he did not die among strangers. Funeral was at the Baptist Church, preached by Rev. Warren, a minister of the Christian Church from Osceola. Burial was in the Brownington cemetery. We can truly say a great and good man has gone.
