IKENBERRY, Alice Ruby PITTMAN
1905-1937
Unionville Cemetery, Unionville, Putnam Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Mrs. C. W. Ikenberry, wife of Mr. Ikenberry of the rural resettlement office in the post office building, died of pneumonia at 2:25 a.m. Saturday at their home, 107 South Orchard street. Mrs. Ikenberry was seized with a chill Monday night after having been out in the afternoon and her condition became serious almost at once. Her sister-in-law, Mrs. E. A. Ikenberry, of Independence, Mo., arrived the last of the week to help care for her and Friday her mother, Mrs. O. E. Pittman, of Unionville arrived, but all their ministrations, professional nursing and care availed little. The loss of this gentle and soft spoken mother whose quiet kindness and fine qualities endeared her to all who knew her is made more poignant by the fact that the Father called before her life's work seemed complete. The two delightful children who have such a perfect devotion for each other are still but little folks, Jack, 10, and Jean, 8. Mr. and Mrs. Ikenberry had a happy and ideal home and the memory of its sweetness will remain even after its most gentle spirit is gone. Alice Pittman was born near Mendota, Mo., February 26, 1905, and was reared at Unionville, still the home of her parents. She and C. W. Ikenberry were married July 6, 1925, and for some years made their home near Nevada where he was in the orchard business, raising apples. She was an expert turkey grower. They came from their farm to Clinton last February where Mr. Ikenberry had been put in charge of the government resettlement bureau. A Clinton resident but less than a year, she was known by neighbors and friends as an ideal homemaker, capable and efficient, wholly wrapped up in her husband and children. The body was taken to Leeton Saturday morning, the home of Mr. Ikenberry's parents, and Tuesday to Unionville for the funeral service and interment. Besides her immediate household, she is survived by her parents, also three sisters and one brother, Charlie and Mrs. Juanita Pittman, and Mrs. Clark McKinley of Unionville, and Mrs. Glen A. Davis of Cincinnati.

When a baby 18 months old his mother died and, after a year during which his father tried to keep his little family together, he allowed his son, Homer, to be taken into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Immer, who gave him a parent's natural and devoted, love, and to them he was always a loyal son. As a lad he was converted at the Comer Methodist Church, (now disbanded) and from that date never failed to walk in the Christian way, finding strength through his faith, for life's vicissitudes that beset his way. Mr. Immer was a leader in progressive farm ideas and active in the Missouri Farmer's Association many years, serving them as president two years. He was the capable head of the M.F.A. Elevator Board several years and always proved himself a man of sound judgment and foresight in dealing with farm problems.

INGHAM, Joseph Cary
1859-1927
White Oak Cemetery, Walker Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - When Joe Ingham's father came to Lucas, Henry county, Mo., from Ohio, in 1868, Joe was nine years old. Trails across the prairie and through the woods were the thoroughfares. The old covered bridge of the Ft. Scott road, and the ford at Cook's mill afforded the means of travel westward from Clinton. The friendliness, hospitality and sturdy good nature and manliness of the pioneer became marked characteristics of the youth of that day, and Joe Ingham possessed them all. The ingham family was the first and perhaps the only one in all that country who were total abstainers. I thought it rank heresay and blatant fanatisim, and when Joe became an active member of the Good Templars, it almost caused a rift in our friendship. I was for "personal liberty". Joe and I became friends in 1869. Together we studied the Blue Back Speller, McGuffey's Readers, Ray's Arithmetic, and Pinneo's Grammar. We diagrammed and parsed Gray's Elegy. We went to spelling matches, singing schools, weddings and funerals. We sat up with the sick and helped dig the graves of the dead. When a neighbor needed help, Joe Ingham was usually on the job when the early comers arrived. He remained on the farm until his health becan to fail. I wandered a little, but he was a constant friend. At his demise, tears of sorrow well up, and the knowledge that a real friend is gone possesses me. On December 17th, 1900, he was married to Miss Mattie Stewart whose fidelity, devotion and ceaseless love comforted him to the end which came Friday morning, after years of invalidism, at his lifetime home town, Urich. He and his twin sister, Mrs. Dr. Hadsell, of Colorado, were the youngest of a family of eight children, of whom H. B., a captain in the Civil war; his sisters - Rachel and Mary, at Urich, and Mrs. Hadsell, with his widow survive him. He was an Odd Fellow, and a member of the Modren Woodman lodge. He took an active part in all the good things of the community was a good neighbor, a dependable friends and an exemplary citizen. All who knew him were his friends. He will be missed in the community as well as in the family. Thus ends a life of service and kindness and as with aching heart I peer into the night of death whose portals he has entered, "hopes sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing." He was a manly man. Funeral services were held Saturday. Interment in the White Oak Cemetery.

Here she lovingly cared for both her father and her husband's father in the years of infirmity before their death. From here her spirit took its flight to God at 7:15, January 2, 1923. For several years she had been a great sufferer, always patient and cheerful. On last Thanksgiving day, she was taken with a severe pain in her side and was never much better until death came to relieve her from her suffering. She leaves to mourn her death her beloved husband and four children, to whom she was devoted and for whom she spent her life in loving service - Allie and Mrs. Harry Jones, near home; Claude, at home, and his twin sister, Maude, now Mrs. Floyd Nutt, of Clinton. Three brothers - Jim Moomaw, of Coal, Mo.; Wm., of Girard, Ill., and George, of Carlinville, Ill. Two brothers and two sisters preceded her to the better world. She was of a domestic turn, a painstaking housekeeper, and a devoted mother, never shirking from any task however hard it might be, that would add to the comfort and pleasure of her home and friends. Her husband can testify that she was his helpmate in the fullest sense. She was a good neighbor, a true wife, a loving, indulgent mother, a good Christian. What higher eulogy could be given one? In her last goodbye to her loved ones, she told them to go to church, and to train their children to attend church. The funeral was held at her late home on January 4th. Interment in Englewood.

INLOES, James Calvin
1859-1939
Deer Creek Cemetery, Deer Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Prominent Farmer Dies - J. C. Inloes, Big Hog Raiser, Was Noted for Fine Spotted Polands - Died Suddenly Saturday - J. C. Inloes, prominent farmer and one of the largest hog raisers in Henry County, answered a sudden call from the Death Angel at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 8, 1939, and fell in the midst of his labors with his stock on his farm four miles northeast of Clinton. A year ago his physician had told Mr. Inloes that he was a sufferer from angina pectoris and warned him to curtail his activities, but Mr. Inloes, who had always been a well and active man, could not resist farming, and working with his hogs, and this year had had exceptionally fine litters. Yet he was taken as he would have wished, without illness in bed or prolonged suffering. He had seemed in his usual health of late and even Ray Baird, who was helping him at his side, was not aware of any change in him until he was stricken and fell. Baird hurried to the house for Mrs. Inloes when he realized there was a crisis. She in turn called for Olen Inloes at Lewis Station but he had gone in the car to Calhoun so his son, who was at home, started to run from the store to the J. C. Inloes farm. He was overtaken by Buddy Carroll and M. V. Peck, who took him n their car to the Inloes farm, where they lifted Billy's grandfather and carried him into the house. They tried to restore him with artificial respiration but life was gone and their efforts were in vain. James Calvin Inloes was born September 9, 1859, at Butler, Montgomery County, Ill., and when a child of two years he lost his mother. He came with his father to Henry County in 1875 and settled near Coal, where he grew to manhood and was educated in the community school. March 22, 1882, Miss Clara Middlecoff became his wife. In the days of their courtship Mr. Inloes rode on horseback to the Middlecoff farm but on arrival there his horse was stabled and he with any other young admirers of daughters in this home were taken to church with the family, all safely riding in a wagon behind slow moving oxen, to the Bronaugh Chapel, Methodist denomination. Those were days when the young men sat with the family too, there was no grouping of girls with their beaux on the back seats. After their marriage they first lived east of the Middlecoff farm, then moved to the farm two miles north of Clinton now owned by S. W. Riffel where they lived until 38 years ago when they bought the present farm, which has remained the family home. Seven children were born to this well ordered home and progressive farm, presided over by the beloved mother whom death claimed November 10, 1926, and the father, who understood tilling the soil and how to do it profitably. On one occasion he purchased a 300-acre tract of western Kansas land to which he planned to move, selling his Missouri farm. But at the insistence of his wife and daughters he decided to remain in Missouri and later sold the Kansas land at a substantial profit. Mr. Inloes was a man of simple and modest tastes, honest and direct in his dealings with men, and generous and good in all relations with his family. He was quiet in disposition, yet a man of thought and fine mind. His comprehension of farming was exceptional and as a hog raiser, Spotted Polands being his speciality, he knew how to make them pay under every condition. Sept. 28, 1936, Mr. Inloes was married to Mrs. Nora Timmerman, soft spoken, gracious, good and understanding. She, with his son, Olen Inloes of Lewis Station, and three daughters, Mrs. James F. Robertson of Electra, Texas; Mrs. Rolla Jones of west of Calhoun, and Miss Ruth of the home survive. There are also four grandchildren, Billy Barr Inloes of Lewis Station; Mrs. Edward Foster of Electra, Texas, Misses Mary Ellen and La Vena Jones and two great-grandchildren, Robert Allen and Marilyn Foster of Electra, Texas, and two brothers, H. S. Inloes of near Hortense and Henry Inloes of Laramie, Wyo. Funeral services were conducted at the First M. E. Church of which Mr. Inloes had been a member since 1918, on Monday. The body was laid for its long sleep in Deer Creek cemetery by the side of the mother of his children. The Wilkinson Funeral service was in charge.

INMAN, Carl Richard
1922-1996
Oak Hill Cemetery, Clearmont, Nodaway Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Carl Richard Inman, 73, Deepwater, died Friday, April 5, 1996, at the Golden Valley Memorial Hospital. - Carl R. Inman was born December 16, 1922, in the family home in Thurman, Ia., the youngest of three sons to Harry L. & Lillie Belle Inman. His father operated a garage at Clearmont and was a resident there since 1931 until his death December 4, 1974. His mother, Lillie Belle Kline Inman was a hardworking mother who loved her garden and caring for her husband and sons. Her popcorn balls are well remembered by all her grandchildren. She entered into rest December 25, 1985. Dad graduated from Clearmont High School as valedictorian. He and his team members excelled in basketball and I believe took state championship. I have a postcard written by Dad to his mother in August 1942. He ad traveled to Campbell, Mn., to seek work. He wrote that "In 15 minutes had seven jobs offered us. We took the best one. All three of us at one place all through shocking and threshing at $5 per day!" I believe the other two mentioned were his brothers. Dad enlisted in the Marines November 13, 1942, at Kansas City. He served his country proudly and with great honor as he did in life an din the following: Eastern New Guinea October 15, 1943 - January 11, 1944; Cape Gloucester, New Britain, January 12, 1944 - March 1, 1944; Peleliu, Palau Islands September 15, 1944 - October 14, 1944; Okinawa, Ryukyu Islands, April 2, 1945 - June 21, 1945. He received the National Defense Medal, Korean Service Medal w/3*, United National Medal, Good Conduct Medal awarded twice. He was discharged March 29, 1954, with the rank of Master Sergeant. He served with the First Marine Division. He was discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves August 21, 1958. Dad worked at Armstrong Tire and Rubber in Des Monies, and attended trade school in Des Moines. He then moved his family to California. There he worked as a machinist for several years and opened his own machine shop. He carried his hard work ethic to his profession where his work was highly regarded within the industry. He retired to Deepwater. His home is on 40 acres where he could enjoy the outdoors he so loved. He was able to attend to his great love of hunting and fishing and the outdoors where he planted an orchard and attended his large garden (especially tomatoes, turnips, radishes, corn and beans). He loved those veggies, until his health restricted his activities. He was of late unable to do much, which is itself a very heavy cross to bear for such a strong determined, and proud man. Dad would love to take fishing trips to Canada and Alaska where he would share his catches of albacore and salmon with neighbors and family. He and the other gentlemen would can their catch themselves. Dad was a very proud man, staunch, forthright, honest and independent ... meticulous and a perfectionist. He was extremely intelligent and had the common sense to compliment his intelligence. He held high expectations for himself and expected the same from others. He presented a tough exterior, but to those able to see further found a friend. A true friend. His family life may have at times floundered, but there was always great respect and love throughout the deep pains and troublesome times. We seemed to understand that some men are not very good at expressing their love with words and actions, but it is nonetheless felt in the heart. I believe these past few years have been difficult for Dad, he loved his independence and rugged nature. It must be extremely difficult to have a very strong body succumb to pain and disablement, stealing away the ability to enjoy that which was truly the essence of his soul. He worked too hard, for too long, in a large city before he decided to retire to a simpler, more peaceful way of life. Only to have his health steal way the tranquility of life. Isn't it unfortunate, we don't slow down during life to truly appreciate and enjoy those things we hold so dear. Only when life itself has slowed us down, do we take time to understand what is truly of value. He adopted a stray cat, which he then lost, but not before she born him three kittens to care for. Dad and his cats, watching the world; the field, the timber, the animals, the birds feeding from his carefully tended feeders; sitting summizing the world through his sliding glass door, or just sitting out on the lawn, or watching sports, cats in his lap in his big La-Z-Boy recliner, you know, the one that fits his every body curve. Dad will be sadly missed by his good neighbors to whom he became so close to, and by his family who will forever carry him within us. We cry for his pain, and pray he finds his eternal peace, and we hope that he will smile down at us, laugh at us, cry with us, and help us as we struggle to find our sliding glass door to look through. We are blessed with many of the Inman traits passed down from generation to generation in long family line of dedicated, honest, hardworking, ordinary people that make God proud and have built this country silently, proudly. Funeral services were held April 8, at the Clearmont United Methodist Church. Burial was in the Clearmont Cemetery.

Gene was born on March 3, 1936 in Montrose, Mo. to Arthur and Fern (Wilson) Irvin. He attended the Montrose Catholic School for six years and then attended Appleton City School and graduated in 1954. After high school he enrolled at Kansas State Teachers College (Pittsburg State University) in Pittsburg Kansas. Go Gorillas!!! It was at Pitt State that Gene found his true passion, football. While playing football was a big part of his college life, the friendship and bonds to teammates and classmates proved to be most important. After being a member of the 1957 National Championship Team, he and his team of friends were truly champions. This was something that he held very precious and would apply to everything that he did from that point forward in his life. To endeavor to be a champion at whatever he set out to do. The friendships that he forged during his college years were truly lifelong friendships that endure to this day. Gene served in the U. S. Marine Corp for eight years. His basic training was at Paris Island, S.C. Anyone that knows anything about Paris Island knows that it's not for sissies. It's a grueling regiment of stress, both physically and mentally. Gene was always very patriotic and was proud of his service to his country. Gene married the love of his life, Kay Hand, on August 23, 1959. To this union two children were born, Lecia and Lori. Gene and Kay's first date was in 1952. Gene was sixteen and Kay was thirteen. Kay said, "That's OK, he thought that I was fourteen". True love knows no age…knows no bounds. Gene and Kay treasured their fifty five year union. Gene's love of cars began at the Wells Irvin Chevrolet Dealership in Montrose where he stood alongside his dad in the garage. Later Gene was affiliated with Barrows Chevrolet in Appleton City and with his dealership, The Adrian Service Center in Adrian. As a youth, Gene enjoyed drag racing. Long time friend and confidant Leroy Edmiston first met Gene at the start line on Highway 18 west of Adrian. He said that he knew Gene by his car before he knew Gene. Gene loved the lake. He loved the early morning serenity, the boating, skiing, swimming, wave runners and nightlife. And once again, the early morning serenity. What Gene enjoyed most of all was sharing this with his family and friends. More times than not, when Kay just wanted a nice relaxing weekend at the lake, Gene chose to invite friends to share in this beautiful part of his life. Gene was a very generous, caring and sharing individual. Gene was CEO of The Adrian Bank, but most everyone just knew him as a great friend. Gene's life was one of service to others. His service to the Adrian community and beyond is unparalleled. Gene was a charter member of The Adrian Optimist Club (President 1979-80), Member of The Western Mo Antique Tractor and Machinery Association, Crescent Hill Masonic Lodge, The Elks Club and served as Pitt State Alumni President (1984-85). Gene attended the Happy Hill Church of God. Gene gave of himself and his resources daily. There were very few charities and organizations that were not the recipient of his generosity. He was a philanthropist that never strived for accolades. The fact is that he went out of his way to not receive recognition. His joy was in seeing the results of his good deeds, not in being honored for them. Nonetheless, an individual can't do the things that Gene did without someone taking notice. Just a few of his well deserved honors include: Meritorious Achievement Award from Pittsburg State University, Adrian Optimist Lifetime Achievement Award, Adrian Chamber of Commerce Person of the Year, Fifty Year Service Award from the Mo Banker's Association, and was inducted into the Pittsburg State University Athletic Hall of Fame. If there was an Adrian Friend of the Community Award, Gene would have received that too. Gene is survived by Kay his wife of 55 years, daughters Lecia Irvin and fiancée Kenneth McGuire, Lori Haskins and Husband Paul , one brother J. Roger Irvin and wife Carol, all of Adrian and one sister Janice Irvin of Buckeye, Arizona, and a never ending line of faithful friends. Gene was preceded in death by his parents Arthur and Fern Irvin.
