JAMES, John E.
1854-1905
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Calhoun Missouri, Feb 4 1905 - J. E. James Meets Death by the discharge of his own gun. No sensation more profound and no sorrow more sincere has enshrouded Calhoun or even Henry and its adjoining counties in all their vicissitudes than that which was caused by the fatal gun shot wound which befell J. E. James on the morning of Jan. 27, 1905, near the hour of 8 o'clock. Mr. James went very early that morning, over to his youngest daughter's, Mrs. W. C. Moore's, and told her that he was going to take a drive out in the country, asking her if she wished to go along with him. She told him she would, as she wanted to go out to Mr. Dannett's anyway, so he went to the livery barn and ordered a rig, asking them to have it ready by 8 o'clock and telling them he was going to Lewis Station or to Frank Diehl's. From the barn, he went directly to his residence, got his gun down, saying he would take it along, which was nothing unusual for him to do, and asked his wife for some rags for wiping the gun. She entered an adjoining room to get them, when she was shocked by the discharge of the gun. She rushed into the kitchen, saw what had happened and with agonizing shrieks, ran out on the front porches of the building and proclaimed - "Die Fatality!" Mrs. W. C. Moore, who had come over and was already to go with her father to the country, ran into the kitchen where her father was lying prone upon the floor and in her feeble efforts tried to check the ebbings that flowed from the wound with one hand and raising his head with the other one, hoping to see him rally, but it was all in vain, for he soon expired. Dr. Barr was phoned at Clinton and he deputized Henry Slack to hold an inquest. The jury's verdict was that the deceased came to his death from a gun shot inflicted by his own hand. John E. James was born May 18, 1854 near Jacksonville, Ill., and emigrated to Mo., with his parents, Mrs. Nancy and Nelson James, when but a small boy. There ware 5 girls and 2 boys in his father's family at one time but their home was visited by an epidemic and took the girls one by one until the whole five of them were laid in the family graveyard near their home, leaving the 2 boys, John and Ephraim; the last named one is located somewhere in Indian territory but could not be found in time to be notified of his brother's death. Deceased leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss. Named as follows: Miss Olivia, who is now teaching her second term of school in one of the public school buildings in East St. Louis; Mrs. W. S. Bowen, who resides in Windsor; Miss Nannie, the only one that is now at home, and Mrs. W. C. Moore, who resides in Calhoun. Some time in the late 80's, Mr. James confessed Christ and was baptized by the late W. W. Warren and taken into the Christian Church, after which there seemed ever to exist in his heart a strong love of friendship for this above named brother. Mr. James loved the open fields and the might woods; he loved the wild pleasures and recreation of the hunt, he loved the blue sky, the flowers and nature, to him, spoke a various language whether peopled in the bud and blossom of spring, or teeming with the wealth of summer, whether clothed in luxury of autumn or wrapped in snows of winter. He was an industrious man of increasing energy and push, a good and kind husband and a devoted father, that which gave his children pleasure being his pleasure and interest. With the exception of a short stay at Butler, he had lived in and near Calhoun a greater portion of his life. On the third day after his death, his funeral took place at his home. As old friends, relatives and neighbors of the deceased arrived, they were given an opportunity to view the remains, which lay in a handsome casket. The features appeared as natural as in life, except that he was somewhat paler. Otherwise, he appeared to be in a deep sleep. After the remains were borne to the hearse, in spite of the piercing northeast wind that was blowing a quite a gale, and of the many persons shivering with cold, a large funeral procession was formed and followed the remains to the Calhoun cemetery, where, with a beautiful burial service, they were laid out to rest.

1834-1927
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clementina M. January died July 27, 1927. Thus ended the wonderful life of a wonderful woman. Aunt Cleminie, as every one who knew her, lovingly called her, was born in Boone county, near Columbia, this state, September 15, 1834.  Had she lived until September would have been 93 years old. She was the daughter of P. M. and Nancy January. She moved to Brownington with her parents in the year 1870.  She professed religion in early life and joined the Presbyterian church in Columbia, later moving her membership to Brownington, living a consistent Christian life until her death. By her works she was known, always thoughtful for the comfort of others. Resigned to the will of the Lord her life has indeed been an example for all. Aunt Clem was never married, as her years of young womanhood were spent in caring for an invalid mother whom she nursed forty years. She had made her home the past twenty years in the home of her nephew and niece, Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Boles, who passed away within five months. It was more than her frail condition could stand and she commenced to rapidly fail. She was tenderly cared for in her last days by her niece Mrs. George Jackson and great nephew Charles Boles. It was very interesting to hear Aunt Clem talk of the early days. She had watched the country from the ox cart to the airplane. She had interesting relies of early days. She was the last of a Christian family and I know they gladly welcomed her to their Heavenly home where the family circle is now complete. Her funeral service was conducted at her late home, after which her remains were laid to rest beside her loved ones.

She will be remembered by all of us who knew her as a person who was direct and straightforward - no "beating around the bush" for Ruth - one who was kind and generous-spirited and a lover of life (plants, animals and especially people). She believed in treating people the way she wanted to be treated - simply, directly, kindly. Rick's tribute to her is that she is the smartest person he has ever known - both "book smart" and "common sense smart". Peggy and Mike remembered that she had a strong curiosity, an inquiring spirit and always was seeking to learn more; that she reached out to people in need as if it was second nature to her (which I think it was); that she was very orderly and structured in how she dealt with life, and one of her greatest delights was the sharing of family stories. Ruth was a woman of strong faith. That faith played a crucial role in helping her to overcome the many obstacles that she faced in her life, including two bouts with cancer that she defeated prior to this latest one. That faith enabled her finally to say yes to Dale's proposal of marriage, which in turn offered her a joy beyond anything she had expected. Indicative of her faith and her focus on living is the number of poems and inspirational pieces about living that she kept in her home. There was nothing about dying - because, I believe, that was something that no longer represented any threat to her. We who are here are blessed because Ruth Jennings was a part of our lives, and we are grateful to God for allowing us to experience her love and friendship. Funeral services were held at the First Christian Church, Clinton, Thursday, August 28. Burial was in the Carpenter Cemetery, Chilhowee.

Drakes Chapel Cemetery, Deer Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton, MO - J. W. JENNINGS DIED at his home on North Second street at 5:10 a.m. Tuesday with double pneumonia, after a week's illness, taking sick the Tuesday before with a severe chill. He was one of Clinton's leading citizens, faithful to every trust, as a husband, father, Christian, lodgeman and in business. He had been a member of the M. E. Church, South, for years, president of the Board of Stewards. He was ever watchful for the interest of the Kingdom. He had a splendid voice, and for many years was a faithful member of the choir of that church. He was born northwest of Lewis Station, January 9, 1857, attended the Lewis school, then the Clinton Academy. At the age of 21 he started teaching in the schools of Henry county, being a beloved teacher for many years. He was deputy county collector under J. M. Spangler for several years, then entered the Citizens Bank, where he had been bookkeeper for the past 22 years. He also acted at the cashier's window many times. He was a member of the Masonic lodge for years and served in the highest official positions. He has been a devoted husband to his wife, who is an invalid. One son, Thornton, is left to comfort her, and a small granddaughter to cheer. To these he leaves a priceless heritage of an upright life, well lived and the promise that he will meet them on the Other Shore. A short funeral service was held at the home Wednesday at 1 p.m. by Rev. Shockley, assisted by Rev. Selah, so the dear wife would be present. His body was taken to the church where the same ministers conducted the service followed by the Masonic service here on account of the cold weather. The burial was at Drake's Chapel by the side of his people. During the hour of the funeral, all the banks were closed. A complete obituary next week. - MR. J. W. JENNINGS PASSES AWAY. How swiftly the passing years carry us on the tides of time to our long, long home. This fact was true in the passing of Mr. J. W. Jennings. He was born on his grandfather's farm near Lewis, Jan. 9th, 1857. He was a descendant of one of the pioneer families of Henry County. From his boyhood he was observant and took advantage of all the opportunities which that early day offered to fit himself for a worthy place in the world. He was deeply conscientious and as he approached young manhood he gave himself unreservedly to the support of every agency that pertained to the best interest of his community. To him, life was not an idle dream, but the most significant reality in the world. He was educated in the rural schools and in the Clinton Academy. At the age of twenty-one he took up teaching and followed this profession for fourteen consecutive years. In 1900 he came to Clinton and was employed by the Huey Dry Goods Co. At that time one of the flourishing business concerns of the city. Later he became an employee of the Lindly Dry Goods Co. During the time of Mr. James Spangler's administration as County Collector he was employed as his deputy. On the first of January 106 he became actively identified with the Citizens Bank and for twenty-four years he continued to serve this institution and its patrons faithfully and efficiently, until he was stricken with illness and death released him from all his earthly activities. On January the 9th 1884 he was married to Miss Mary Rose Thornton, Resulting from this union two children were born to them. A son and a daughter. The daughter Ruth died in childhood. His wife, the son Thornton, the daughter-in-law Pauline, a little granddaughter Virginia Lee, a brother tony Jennings of Fort Worth Texas, survive him. No one had a higher regard for the sacredness of the marriage relation that Mr. Jennings. As a husband he was considerate, tender and self-sacrificing. For many years his wife has been an invalid. There was never a time he failed in giving to her his unstinted devotion. He never tired in doing everything that was possible that might lighten the burden of her affliction or that might bring a ray of sunshine into her sick room. As a father he was wonderful. In his relation to his son from childhood to the day of his death he felt as few do, the great responsibility of directing the destines of his life. He never failed in his efforts to try to make those impressions that would make sure his future success in life. He was guided by that high commanding motive that this was the greatest heritage he could leave him. When the son married and brought his bride into the home, it was to him a supreme joy to share with her his love and every consideration within his power to give. He was especially devoted to the dear little granddaughter. To him, she was a little sunbeam to cheer and brighten his pathway in this declining years. When a young man he was converted in a revival meeting held at Drake's chapel by Rev. Marreson and united with this old historic church where he exercised his gifts in promoting its every interest. He carried with him may precious memories of the years he was associated with this church. The influences that touched his life as a result of its services, became a tower of strength to him in directing in all the future of his Christian life. After he became a resident of Clinton, he transferred his membership to the local church in that city, where he was recognized as a capable and efficient leader. There was not an office in the gift of the local church that he had not filled with credit to himself, and the good of the community. It is proper to record and due Mr. Jennings, to say he will be missed in all the business, social, and moral interests of the community. He possessed many of the nobler characteristics which attracted people to him. He was the same to everyone. His purpose was to be a help to those who needed help; he was the highest type of a gentleman. He was never off his guard. This aspect of his life in his relation to everyone was a revelation of the real character of the man. Everything that was so expressive in his relation to people and other things, proclaimed the fact that he was controlled by more than human power. He was conservative, yet a man of deep unswerving convictions. Any things that was right, he was ready to defend with the courage of a true hero. With inexpressible sadness we are forced to say a great man has fallen among us. For the hour of death, he had lived. For the going hence, he had made preparation and bravely he met the last enemy. He found in that last hour that the Christ whom he had trusted, whom he had loved and honored in life, had removed the sting of death. The end was peaceful. He had fought the good fight, he had kept the faith. So, on last Tuesday morning at a few minutes past five o'clock, the invisible chariot swung their steeds into his chamber as the tabernacle of clay was being dissolved and took his redeemed spirit to the mansions above. A short funeral service was held at the home by Brothers Shockley and Selah, after which the body was taken to the church and a second service was held. Then the remains were taken to the Drake's chapel cemetery and laid to rest by the Clinton Lodge No. 548, A. F. and A. M., of which he was a Past Master. The music was furnished by the church choir, assisted by Dr. W. T. Jennings. May the God of all comfort, bless and sustain the sorrowing loved ones.

JENNINGS, Joie JOURNEY
1872-1902
Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Springfield Twp, Henry Co, MO
Calhoun Missouri, Jul 5 1902 - Alfred Slack was called to the eastern portion of the county Friday afternoon to hold an inquest on Mrs. Charles Jennings, faithful wife and kind mother, so still in death. The jury of near neighbors, good and lawful men, hearing the evidence of several witnesses, gave in their verdict that Joie Jennings came to her death by cutting her throat with a razor. Dr. Gray testified that her mind was troubled at times, which caused her to take her own life, just before noon with the dinner nearly ready. She kissed her children, four in number, than bade them goodbye, as she picked up the razor. The oldest child, about eight, ran to her father, who was in the field, and said that "Ma" was bidding them goodbye and had gone out toward the orchard. The father and husband hastened to the house and looked around and a few paces from the smokehouse found the wife of his bosom, the mother of four small children, lying dead. His cries of anguish aroused a man passing by, who hastened the sad news to the neighbors. Telephones were put in use and soon a throng of people gathered, many the deceased's connections, and her many warm friends. Her husband, a well to do farmer, was almost heart-broken. The oldest child is eight and the youngest of the four, eight months. Mrs. Jennings was about 30. She was laid to rest in Mount Olivet, in the presence of a large assemblage of weeping relatives and friends. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emmett Journey of Springfield township and was born in February 1872 and was reared to womanhood on the same farm and united in marriage to Charles Jennings in 1892.

JENNINGS, Laura VICKERS
1839-1922
Bethlehem Cemetery, Bethlehem Twp, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. Laura Jennings In Heaven - It was at 2 a.m. Monday that the spirit of Mrs. Laura Jennings passed from this earth to life eternal. Death came while she was asleep without pain and as quiet and gentle as her life had always been. She had always said that she hoped to go to sleep and awaken in Heaven and her desire was granted. Three weeks previous she suffered a slight stroke of paralysis, which with a serious heart trouble and other complications, brought the end. She did not wish to leave her loved ones on earth, but for several days before she went to sleep, she said she was so tired and would be glad when she took the last journey. Laura Vickers was born in Mullenberg county, Kentucky, December, 1839. She came with her parents to Henry county when a very small girl, and they settled on what is known as the old Vickers farm, just south of Bethlehem church, where the granddaughter, Mrs. Rufus Smith now resides. Here she grew to womanhood, a girl wondrously fair, with glossy hair of raven black and sparkling eyes and snowy skin. It was there she was wooed and won by Dr. P. S. Jennings, and married June 14, 1858. Right after their marriage they came to Clinton, and built their home where she died. She lived for 64 years in the house where she died. The front room was first built and her son born there. Room by room was added to the home, as it was needed to accommodate their family and make guest rooms for friends and relatives, as there was never a home more hospitable than theirs. It was truly a "house by the side of the road." Perhaps more ministers, especially those of the Baptist denomination, were entertained by this fireside than any other in the country. It was a delightful place to go. She loved flowers and music, singing well herself and seeing that her children had the best of training until her daughter, Mrs. Mark Barcafer, leads as one of America's evangelistic singers. Mrs. Jennings loved the old songs as well as the new, and after her daughter arrived at her bedside, even tho so ill, she hummed clear through the tune of "The Long, Long Trail." Her garden was her delight, lilies and roses being her favorites. She planted her flower garden this spring as usual and faithfully tended it. Never a day passed but what she gathered some of her beautiful flowers treasures for the house. She had spent part of each year at the home of her daughter in Chicago, but it had been her wish that she die at her old home where she spent so many happy years. This wish was granted. She passed away in the room where her beloved husband died in 1893. This home is filled with treasures that were beyond price to her. In the yard even, are the trees planted in her bridal days. In the west yard stands a honey locust, most majestic with its spreading branches and fern like foliage. This tree was brought in saddle bags by her husband more than 60 years ago and planted. She has two scrapbooks that contain a wealth of information of her family history as well as the entire county. She treasured them all with other reminiscences and faithfully kept them for those who come after. Of recent months she was unable to see to paste them in, but had them carefully cut out and ready for pasting in. She left a number of blank pages to be filled by her children. She was converted and united with the Bethlehem Baptist church when a young girl. It was September 16, 1866, that the Clinton Baptist church was organized, Mrs. Jennings being one of the seven charter members. Mrs. J. M. Avery, of Kansas City, being the only other charter member now living. Immediately after the organization with these seven consecrated members, 17 others joined and with that handful of people, they built a $20,000 church that was dedicated October 17, 1869. Mrs. Jennings was one of that early type of pioneer womanhood that gave much, both to her family and church. Her husband being a country town doctor who loved people, their lives were ones of real ministry and both went far and near, healing the sick and wounded as well as those of broken heart leading many to the Christ by their example of faithful following of His teachings. Two children were given to this union. Both survive: Dr. W. T. Jennings, of Clinton, and Mrs. Mark Barcafer, of Chicago, Illinois. There are also four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She also leaves one sister, Mrs. Nettie Baker, Casper, Wyoming; and one brother, John W. Vickers, Lowry City. She also leaves Mrs. Zella Wood Meyers, of Bloomington, Illinois, who she raised from a tiny girl. The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist church, Wednesday, at two o'clock p.m., by Rev. C. M. Truex, now of Palmyra, Mo., after which her body was laid beside her husband in the Bethlehem cemetery.

JENNINGS, Mary Rose THORNTON
1854-1934
Drakes Chapel Cemetery, Deer Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. Rose Mary Jennings of 308 North Second street, Clinton, passed away at her home at 11:10 a.m. Saturday, April 14. Funeral services were conducted at the South Methodist church, Sunday, April 15, and burial was at the Drakes Chapel cemetery. She was born in Calhoun, Mo., January 20, 1854, and was a daughter of Dr. Charles H. and Mrs. Harriet (Drake) Thornton. She was married January 9th, 1884, to J. W. Jennings, who preceded her to the Life Beyond more than four years ago. To this union two children were born: Thornton Jennings, of the home address, and a daughter, Ruth Pauline, who died at the age of two years. Besides her son she is survived by a little granddaughter, Virginia Lee Jennings, and a sister, Mrs. W. J. Snow, of Sweet Springs, Mo., also a brother, W. P. Thornton, of Rivera, Calif. She was the daughter of an early pioneer family, the founders of which emigrated to Virginia from England before 1646 -- a family whose records reveal the names of men prominent in the civil and military life of our country since that early colonial period. she herself was the incarnation of a gentlewoman of the old school, in whom were blended the attributes of dignity, graciousness and courage. It may be of interest to mention that she as a great niece of one of our first Missouri legislators, Hon. George F. Burckhartt who designed the great seal of the State of Missouri. Her maternal grandfather, Judge David R. Drake, was the founder of the historic old campground at Drakes Chapel. It was at this place in August, 1870, during a camp meeting conducted by Rev. Wooldridge that she united with the Methodist church and later where she became a charter member of the first Foreign Missionary Society organized there about 50 years ago. During the half a century since that time this branch of church work had been very near her heart. With the exception of a few years spent in early life in other Missouri localities and a later residence of some duration in Texas, Henry County has been her home. She has resided in Clinton for many years. As long as health permitted she was active in church work, and hers was a most exemplary Christian life. In every family relationship she nobly did her part, giving unreservedly of her love and strength. As a wife and mother she was ideal. Her home was a haven of comfort and a portal of old-time hospitality. A semi-invalid for a period of some ten years, her activities were greatly limited, and she was the recipient not only of the love and care of her devoted husband until he passed away, but also of the affectionate ministrations and care of her son and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Thornton Jennings with whom she made her home. During this time her innate energy and lifelong habits of industry found expression in the piecing of beautiful quilts, the needlework of which was most exquisite and artistic. Interested in current events she read papers and occasional books, yet the most of her reading was confined to her beloved Bible and religious literature. For one of her age her mind was remarkably clear and her memory undimmed. At times, when in a reminiscent mood, she enjoyed recalling the days of long ago; yet she did not, like many elderly people, live entirely in the past. She enjoyed company and the problems of her friends were hers also. Her ready sympathy was extended to all. She had cultivated the Christian graces until she seemed to radiate the Christ spirit. She lived in such close touch with things Divine; yet most sweetly human was she with it all. A visit with her was like a benediction. When the curtain falls on a life of service, such as she rendered, we can only think of the passing as a promotion. Her memory like the strains of some sweet symphony which we have loved, shall ever echo in our hearts.

Trainer Jenson , lost her life as a result of an unusual automobile accident on the evening of July 4th, at Artesian. The car in which she was riding with Leroy Vellieux of Woonsocket was struck by a car driven by a farmer named Colthart and hurled against an oil pump, breaking the gas container and the electric wiring. The car was an open one and the bring gasoline drenched the girl. The car seemed to rebound from the pump into the highway and started down the road. Her companion, who had been thrown out by the impact, managed to catch and stop the car and pull the girl from it. Every effort was made to subdue the flames. Like Quinn assisted in this, and took the couple to a hospital in Mitchell, where Miss Jenson died in a few hours.

JENSON, Mary Elizabeth TRAINER
1891-1921
Englewood Cemetery (J), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
The Gann Valley Chief, Gann Valley, Buffalo Co, SD, Sep 1 1921 - Mrs. Mary Jenson laid to rest in Missouri. The community was shocked last week to learn that Mrs. Mary Jenson had passed away at the home of her parents in Clinton, Missouri. While it had been known that this was to be the inevitable end of her sufferings for the past year and a half it was not thought that death was so near. Her husband and two oldest daughters and her two brothers left here Monday but arrived too late to see her alive. The remains were laid to rest in Englewood Cemetery at Clinton, Missouri on Thursday. The following from the Clinton Daily; The spirit of Mrs. Alfred Jenson left the mortal body and went to City Beautiful at 3:20 Tuesday, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Trainer, on East Green Street. A year and a half ago she suffered an attack of influenza at her home in Gann Valley, South Dakota, after which she nursed her little daughters through a severe attack of whooping cough. Soon after Tuberculosis developed and last December she went to a sanatorium in hopes the open air treatment would make her better, but with her already weakened condition she could not fight the disease. In July she grew worse and about two weeks ago her parents received a letter which stated she wanted to come home and the next day her husband brought her. The though of the home coming had stimulated her until she was able to be up for the first few days and how glad and happy she was. If she knew that the time of going was so near she did not say. She just told how glad she was to be home and how good things seemed. How she liked her room and how wonderful the bed was. How good they all were to her and surely she would get well, because they loved her so. The physicians could not tell but thought maybe she might last some while and her husband returned to South Dakota to look after some business affairs, but had to be recalled at once, but arrived after the end came. Mary E, Trainer was born in Ida County, Iowa, February 20, 1891. When she was 13 she moved with her parents to Henry County, her father buying a farm southwest of Calhoun. She graduated from the Calhoun Schools and taught East School a year. Then came to the Colt Business College in Clinton, learning stenography. After finishing she spent a year in Kansas City in a stenographic position and then came to Gann Valley, S. D. , where she held another position, then taught school a year. She returned home and spent some time. Sept. 4, 1912, she was united in marriage to Alfred Jenson and she returned with him to a South Dakota ranch. To their keeping were given four little daughters - Alice, age 8, Esther, age 6, Margaret, age 4, and Dorothy not quite 1. The paternal grandparents have had three of the children and a beloved neighbor, Esther. While all, will do all possible for these four little ones, it will never be the same to them as if their dear little mother could have stayed with them, for the mother's heart can guide the little feet best. She overlooks little faults at the same time guiding and molding these little ones into lives of real service. A mother's kiss will take the hurt from a stubbed toe, so will the mother's love, direct, and bring out the best in every child. We cannot help but sob with breaking hearts when we think of this home left without wife and mother. At the same time after we saw her suffer and only God alone knows how much these many months and look at her face so sweetly at rest we think God knows best. The Comforter will come and these tiny tots will be guided by Jesus and the dear ones she has left behind. She was a sweet Christian women and had given her life early to the Master, being a member of the Calhoun M. E. Church, South. She leaves her husband, 4 daughters, her parents, one sister, Mrs. Grace Bartholomew, Huntington Beach, California, and four brothers- Harvey and Charles, Gann Valley, S. D. , and two brothers, Ralph and Philip, in Clinton. (Note: b: Feb 26 1891 - d: Aug 23 1921)

JOHNS, Rheabelle McDOWELL
1920-2011
Englewood Cemetery (J), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jun 23 2011 - Rheabelle McDowell Johns died Wednesday, May 18, at St. Lukes Hospital in Kansas City at the age of 91 years. She was a devoted daughter, loyal sister, loving wife, unconditionally supportive mother, adoring grandmother, doting great-grandmother, true and great friend and a woman of faith and character. She was a lifelong resident of Clinton, and a 1938 graduate of Clinton High School. She was a member of Clinton United Methodist Church. Rheabelle Johns was a true lady of the old school. She never left her home, unless properly dressed and groomed, and taught these principles, along with a complete set of correct manners and style to her family. She was a traveler to destinations near and far and adventurous when she got there. One favorite place was, for many years, Bennett Springs. She also visited Portugal and the Caribbean. As a Clintonian, with family deeply involved in local doings, she was a keen observer of Clinton social life and history. Numerous press clippings, featuring family members and friends, were frequently posted on her refrigerator. After working as a young woman as a licensed beauty operator, she began her family, and thereafter looking after her husband and three children, and subsequent grandchildren and great grandchildren became her life's work. It was a responsibility she took seriously, and was very good at fulfilling. In some ways Rheabelle was a classic 1950's and 1960's mother. She carefully and lovingly prepared school lunches, frequently enclosing notes of support and affection in with the specially cut up sandwiches. Every holiday, from Christmas, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day and Easter, to such seemingly lesser days such as St. Valentines, St. Patrick's and Halloween were celebrated annually, with household decorations and special menus. She kept life interesting all through the year. Traditionally, the Christmas season always began the day after Thanksgiving, when myriad holiday decorations, from the sacred to the Santa's, would fill the house. And, just as dependably, all of the holiday trappings were removed and carefully stored on December 26. She was also a celebrated hostess, cook and craftsperson, whose ham loaf, pimento cheese and Italian spaghetti casseroles were much relished by friends and extended family. Her doll collection fills one bedroom, and is in evidence throughout the house, something which the great-grandaughters absolutely delight in. She was no less enthusiastic as a friend than as a mother. Many of her friendships endured from before high school. She was a member of the Nifty Needlers, a sewing club that has endured for 60 years. She and Harold were also a part of a six couple group who convened on Saturday nights to play pinochle and dominoes for more than fifty years. She even helped author a book about pinochle players, which was written about in the Kansas City Star. As a citizen of Clinton, she was enthusiastic about local events, especially Olde Glory Days, and rarely missed a parade or gazebo concert. She was especially fond of the Deepwater Labor Day celebration as well. Rheabelle married Harold Johns on March 10, 1941, and they just celebrated both their 70th wedding anniversary and her 91st birthday. Their time together was a lifetime of mutual and loving support; a true match. Rheabelle was predeceased by her parents, Harry Calvin and Rhea Isabell McDowell and her three brothers, Harry Charles McDowell, Robert Eugene McDowell and Edwin Nelson McDowell. In addition to her husband, Harold E. Johns, Clinton, she is survived by her three children and their spouses; Jill Adams-Goodman and Jon Goodman, Kansas City, Becky and Jim Raysik, and Jim and Faith Johns of Clinton. She is also survived by lour grandchildren who also reside in Clinton. They are; Jill Wareham and her husband, Clint, Jeremy Johns and his wife, Erika, Jarrod Campbell and his wife, Christian, Sarah Duncan and her husband, Casey. Also, great-grandchildren; Sierra and Sydney Wareham, Ethan Johns, Hannah Campbell, Kaydith Maddox, Isaac Duncan and one more Duncan on the way. Funeral services were held Saturday, May 21 at the Clinton United Methodist Church. Interment was in Englewood Cemetery.

Clinton MO - Mrs. Eunice Johnson died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Owen Taylor, on East Ohio street at 11 p.m. Monday. She had been in failing health for some years and bedfast since January. Eunice Smith was born in Taylor county, West Virginia, December 12, 1840, and moved with her parents to Henry county, Indiana in 1865, where she met A. N. Johnson and was married to him the same fall. It is interesting to know that they had lived near each other in the same county in West Virginia, but had never met until they went to Indiana. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson moved with their family to Missouri in March 1886, first living on a farm south of Clinton. A short while later they bought a farm east of Clinton now owned and occupied by Willie Reid and family, where they lived until 1902. They then moved to the house now occupied by Mrs. Watson on East Ohio street. When they sold this place, they moved to Eighth street, where Mr. Johnson died in 1920 and Mrs. Johnson went to the home of her daughter, Mrs. Taylor, where she spent the remainder of her life. She was the mother of six children. One son died while young and Mrs. John Datweiler and Mrs. C. F. Simes died after they had raised their children. Those surviving are one son, Chas. Johnson east of Clinton, and two daughters, Mrs. C. N. Knoles and Mrs. Taylor, Clinton. there are 10 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, and one brother, Gordon Smith, Kensett, Ore. Mrs. Johnson was converted and united with the Baptist church in Virginia when a young girl. She was a fine, sweet Christian woman, accepting life as she found it. Hers was a placid disposition which was never ruffled, she was modest and much concerned about the lack of modesty of the present generation. She never scolded, never argued, never got upset, never was provoked about anything, say her grandchildren and her children, so remarkable were her disposition and character. The funeral was conducted at her late home Tuesday afternoon. Burial in Englewood beside her husband under the direction of the Consalus-Peck Funeral Service. Relatives who came to see her the Sunday before her death were Mrs. Jean Wood and son Elmo, Mrs. Nathan Ridgeway, Walter and Mrs. Bessie Nay, Newcastle, Ind.

Englewood Cemetery (J), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Rev. J. E. Johnston, for the past 50 years an ordained Presbyterian minister, 22 years of which he had lived and worked in the Sedalia Presbytery, died at the Community Clinic Hospital Saturday noon, September 23, 1939. There he had been about three days following a sudden illness at his home, near Montrose, which proved of such short duration that neither of his daughters could reach his bedside before his death. Mrs. Octavia Graham flew to Kansas City from her home in Albuquerque, N. M., in a futile effort, arriving at the hospital 30 minutes too late and his elder daughter, Mrs. Eleanor Floyd of LaSalle, Ill., and her daughter, Mrs. Gladys Christman of Cassopolis, Mich., arrived at the home Sunday. Rev. Johnston's brother, Howard Johnston, and nephew of Atrim, Ohio, came Monday night to attend the last rites and left immediately afterwards for their home. Besides the above, Rev. Johnston is survived by an elder sister of Ohio, who was unable to come, and his wife, the former Miss Della Blew, of Montrose. John Ervin Johnston was born December 12, 1856, in Ohio. He received his degree of Doctor of Laws at the University of Law in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1886, graduating as a classmate of the former Vice-president of the United States, Charles G. Dawes. Two months later he received his B. S. degree at Muskingum, Ohio, and after practicing law a short time became a minister of the gospel. He also attended the Allegheny College in the East; McCormick Theology Seminary at Chicago, Ill.; United Theological Seminary in North Carolina. He held pastorates in Georgia, California, New York, Ohio, Kansas, and Oklahoma besides in Missouri. He was forced to retire from preaching about 20 years ago due to a throat trouble, but remained a prominent and highly esteemed worker in church activities. Rev. Johnston's daily life was a testimony of love for the Master he so truly served. The poet has said, "There is nothing so kingly as kindness," and in this respect Rev. Johnston was king, and his kingdom extended to the countless persons he knew and was associated with in his work. As a father and husband he was unsurpassed, in goodness and his acquaintances soon became his close friends. He greatly encouraged his wife in her W.C.T.U. activities. Funeral services were held Tuesday at the Clinton Presbyterian Church. Burial at Englewood under the auspices of Lennartz service of Montrose with Loren H. Anderson of Spore & Son assisting. Of Rev. Johnston the following was written by a neighbor: "In the passing of Rev. J. E. Johnston at a Clinton hospital last Saturday, Beer Creek Township loses one of its most highly respected citizens. Of great integrity and with a mind excelled by few, to know him was an honor. He walked constantly with the Lord, who kept his mind alert and his body active to the very end of his life. He had accompanied Dr. Cline and Mr. Scroggs of Appleton City to the Presbytery of their church held at Climax Springs, Mo., Tuesday last week and had spoken of his enjoyment of the day. Although a retired minister, Rev. Johnston always retained his interest in all his church's welfare."

JONES, Allen A.
1856-1923
Bethlehem Cemetery, Bethlehem Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Jan 1923 - Allen Jones At Rest - "Come unto Me all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest." And so the pain racked body of Allen Jones obeyed the summons of the Master and went home to eternal rest January 17, 1923.

JONES, Amasa Rev.
1796-1870
Montrose Cemetery, Montrose, Deepwater Twp, Henry Co, MO
Germantown MO, Apr 28 1870 - Amasa Jones was born at Rindge, Cheshire County, New Hampshire, April 28, 1796, and died at Deepwater, Henry County, Missouri, April 17, 1870. His father's name was Asa and his mother's Mary. He was one of a large family, nearly all of whom have preceded him to the world of spirits. He remembered his Creator in the days of his youth and in early life became a follower of Jesus. The consecration of himself to the service of his Master was whole-hearted. In answer to the inquiry, "Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?" God spread out before him the mission field. In his endeavors to discern the indications of Providence to duty he was made to behold the broad field for Christian enterprise among the benighted heathens of all nations of the earth. These researches, laying the foundation of characteristic benevolence and self-denying toil, resulted in the resolve, "Here am I, Lord, send me." He desired to teach the heathen and to lead them to Christ. On February 15, 1821, he was married to Miss Roxana Stearns, of Ashburnham, Worcester County, Massachusetts. In a few days afterwards he set out with a number of others to go to a mission field of the then Far West by an overland route, there being then but few facilities for traveling. He came out under the auspices of the American Board of Foreign Missions, and became an assistant missionary at the Harmony Mission, a station established on the Marais des Cygnes, about three miles from its mouth, and in the extreme western part of the then new state of Missouri. This was then the home of the Osage Indians. His labors there were principally in the school. His letters spread upon the pages of the Missionary Herald, of the years 1825 and 1835, inclusive, amply testify to his devotion to the cause of civilizing and Christianizing the Indians. He attained to other spheres of usefulness. He devoted much of his time, spared from the school, to the study of theology. It seemed necessary for him to study medicine also. Dr. W. N. Belcher, now in New York, was for six years the physician of the station. But his health failing, he was required to quit the post. Foreseeing this step, and knowing Mr. Jones' general adaptation to the work, Dr. Belcher recommended that he prepare himself, and he studied medicine under the doctor for some time. But the taking care of souls was a higher sphere of life and duty for him. He was ordained and set apart to the ministry of the gospel at Harmony Mission, October 12, 1830, by the Arkansas Presbytery, having been licensed to preach a few years before. He ever had a realizing sense of the grave responsibilities of the office. But his soul was fired with fresh hopes and nobler aspirations. But as the white man advanced the red man receded, and in 1835, the Harmony Mission Station was abandoned. The old site is still discernible near Papinville, Bates County. Dr. Jones moved with his family, his wife and two daughters, Mary and Jane, to Deepwater, then in Rives County, where he procured a tract of land and opened a settlement. A church was soon organized and he took charge of it as pastor, and continued so till July, 1867, when Rev. B. F. Powelson was associated with him. He preached the word in many places throughout this region. and the old settlers can well testify to his attachment to the cross of Christ and zeal for the glory of God. He went about doing good, and was successful in winning many souls to Christ. He was quite successful in the practice of medicine, and contributed much towards ameliorating the sufferings of mankind. He was an earnest, self sacrificing, indefatigable laborer in his Master's vineyard. He sought not - desired not - compensation for his toil, from among the stores of earth. His practice as a physician, and the results of his own ingenuity and industry secured for himself and family a comfortable living and ample provision for old age. He was a student all his life - assiduous and unrelaxing in his efforts in early life, and determined, fixed ever in his purpose, to acquaint himself with the movements of mankind, in the various spheres of life, and specially to keep himself posted in regard to the progress of the church of Christ. He was a close reader, and though he had never seen the great improvements of the age, remaining at his post on the frontier, yet he had a fair knowledge of these things, and his descriptions of them were astonishingly accurate. His independence of mind and originality of thought, shaped and drawn out, no doubt by necessity, were evidenced in quite a number of productions, material and immaterial. He looked with favor upon the progressive spirit of the age. But he set his face against countenancing, in any way, the great evils of the world. He refused to enter upon any compromise with intemperance, profanity or Sabbath breaking. He was unflinching in his devotion to the great principles of Christianity, and sought in every conceivable way the establishment and perpetuity of truth, and the maintenance of the right. He labored among all classes faithfully for the sowing of the precious seed, for the culture of the tender vines, and for the maturity of the fruits of the Spirit. He oftentimes seemed impatient in sickness - desiring to be in his place with God's worshippers, and fearing lest his absence should prove a hindrance to the cause of Christ. His zeal thus carried him sometimes beyond the capabilities of the flesh. The last Sabbath he spent on earth was one of special exertion and anxiety to him. It was the Sabbath preceding the meeting of his own Presbytery and a neighboring Presbytery among his people. He wanted the people to be interested in these things. He longed for this meeting. He wished to see the last vestige of separation carried away and the two branches of the Presbyterian Church inseparably united. He longed to greet the brethren once more, and congratulate them on the accomplishment of so noble a work. As Simeon to see Christ, so he longed to see the running together of these kindred streams. He was desirous to share with his people the promised feast of love and joy. He attended services in the morning, and a prayer meeting in the evening, where he made an earnest appeal to sinners to come to Christ. In his last days, the few appeals he attempted were exceedingly earnest. The fire glowed fervently on the altar of his love. His soul yearned for the salvation of those who surrounded him. His conversation indicated a ripening for heaven and glory. For many months he seemed to be amid the scenes of the Delectable Mountains and the land of Beulah. He was near Christ, and could well call upon his friends to come to him. And yet his soul longings were "Nearer my God to thee." The funeral services were held in the Adobe Church, (a building the deceased had erected during his life) on the morning of the 18th, the room being crowded to its utmost capacity. The corpse was taken from the church to its place of burial, one mile east of Germantown, preceded by the members of the Osage and Southwest Missouri Presbyteries and followed by a large concourse of friends.

On February 5, 1941, in Osceola, she was united in marriage to Elijah S. Jones. With her husband "Lige," they formed the perfect loving marriage. Their love was so natural and good that when Lige died November 18, 1988, Anna May could not ever fully recover from his death and was easily depressed and despondent. The years from 1988 were passed away missing him. Anna May was very proud of the 28 years she worked for Clearfield Cheese Company. She formed many lifelong friendships with co-workers from Clearfield. Even with working outside the home, her all-consuming role in life was being a mother. Her kids were everything to her. They could do no wrong. She wished for nothing more than her family to love one another and help each other. Anna May and Lige made sure there were many happy times for their family. There was always a family reunion, holidays to celebrate, birthdays and weekend dinners. Anna May was always so proud of each and every accomplishment of her children and grandchildren, no matter how slight. They suffered a severe blow when their youngest child, James Earl, 18, died in an accident in 1967. She forever mourned him. Even though Anna May was not a regular church member, she portrayed and lived the golden rule in every facet of her life. If she had any enemies in life, they were unknown to her children. Anna May was a member of the Civic Center walking group and to her it was a shining achievement to lengthen her daily walks. She will be missed by all her family. She is survived by three sons, Joseph S. Jones and wife, Cinda, Clinton, Robert E. Jones and wife, Evonne, Appleton City, and Roy L. Jones and wife, Penny, Deepwater; two daughters, Peggy A.

Next she worked as a "Rosey the Riveter" during World War II. Later she started her own business, as child care center. This was her true love. She was a very kind and gentle person, who had always loved children. She had adopted a son and three years later received a baby girl on her 40th birthday as a foster child. She raised them both and gave up many things for Ronnie and Betty. She didn't have much money but always found some for them. Some of the kids she cared for stayed in touch with her after they were grown and in fact she cared for some of their children. She told Betty recently that if she could ever walk again, she would love to be able to care for children again. Besides her love for children, she used to cook a lot. She was a great cook. She also loved to talk. She could talk non-stop for hours. In fact her best friend in Southern California used to talk with her for hours on the phone and then she would walk next door and talk some more. Of course, she also helped to take care of Mrs. Gallagher, who was crippled with arthritis. One of her other favorite pastimes was going to the ocean and listening to the ocean waves and sounds. She moved back to Clinton in 1979. In 1985, she had major surgery and was not expected to live through it. She was never a worrier, and so she came through the surgery with no problem.

JONES, Cecil
n/a-1926
Undated Clipping - Murdered in Oklahoma - Cecil Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Jones, of Clinton, Okla., and grandson of Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Jones, west of Calhoun, came to a tragic death Sunday, Aug. 8th. His father was in Ft. Smith, buying furniture, and Cecil did a big day's work Saturday in the store and went to Oklahoma City Sunday morning (a distance of 104 miles) after his wife, who was in the hospital there. Shortly after noon he went for her and she was not quite ready. Her brother was there with her and he asked Cecil to go get his girl, Miss Alice Allspaugh. They both went after the girl and were returning (the three) when a Ford truck coming on a cross street hooked on to Cecil's left back fender of his new Oakland roadster and tore it off and kept going. This angered Cecil, and he turned his car and pursued them, stopping his car in front of them and began to ask them (a white man driving and a Mexican), why they didn't stop, all still in their cars.

JONES, George W.
1848-1927
Tebo Church Cemetery, Leesville Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton, MO, Feb 1927 - Again the dark angel of death has come into our home and taken our dear father, George. W. Jones, home to heaven. Just 15 months and 13 days since we gave our darling son, Floyd W. George, to God and who suffered so long, and at that time, Grandpa said why couldn't it be me in place of son, and now he has gone to him. Another good father has taken his departure, and while absent from us, he is not forgotten. His influence remains to cheer and encourage those who were near and dear to him, while on earth. Alas, 'twas hard to give him up, but God's will, not ours be done. But we mourn not as those who have no hope, for he accepted Christ as his Savior when a young man and united with the Tebo Baptist church Sixty Years ago and lived a devoted Christian life to his death, always singing God's praises and praying. All through his long sickness, which has been since Thanksgiving, he sand and prayed all the time, his favorite song, "The Unclouded Day." One day when he was so sick he said to his daughter, "I know what is the matter, I have quit singing," but he was so weak he could hardly sing, but sang, by and by I'll go and meet her on that other bright shore. Won't that be a happy meeting on that other bright shore. George W. Jones was born May 23, 1848, near Leesville; died February 5, 1927, making him 78 years, 8 months and 13 days old. On September 7, 1872, he was united in marriage to Susan Caroline Parker. To this union one child was born. Mrs. T. R. Gill, who lives at Lewis Station. His wife preceded him to the Better World nearly 17 years ago and "Uncle George," as everyone called him, has made his home with his daughter, since. Uncle George took down sick the second day of December, 1926, with rheumatism, and from that seemed like everything went wrong with him. He had three good doctors called a couple days following: had a good trained nurse, but all said nothing can be done, but he was ready to go when God called him. Besides the dear daughter who was so good to him and who fell at her post of duty on Monday night before he died, and was not able to be up any more. He leaves a near granddaughter and son-in-law, who were the pride of his heart; two brothers, W. H. Jones, at Lewis, and J. M. Jones, Afton, Okla., also a host of relatives and friends to mourn his going. His brother, from Afton, came to see him and as he seemed to get better he returned home. His brother and wife, here, did everything they could but we could not keep him. God needed him and had a place for him. His chief occupation was gardening and fishing. He did love to fish and had caught fish every month in the year for two years, and his garden was always a beauty, never letting any weeds grow in it and had planned this year to raise some vegetables for the Calhoun Colt Show and talked so much about it while he was sick. Everybody liked Uncle George - the young as well as the older ones, and he will be missed in the home, at the store and every place. On Sunday, at 10:30 a.m., Bro. Faris, pastor of Mt. Gilead Baptist church, preached the funeral at the home of his daughter to a large crowd. They left at 11 o'clock for Tebo Baptist church, the funeral to be at 2 o'clock, but the roads were so bad they did not get there until 4 o'clock, and Bro. Billie Briggs, a life time friend, preached the funeral there to a large crowd of relatives and friends and then the body was lain in the cemetery near by, under the most beautiful flowers to await the resurrection day.

One brother, Louis Dale, died at five months of age. Billy went to be with the Lord on April 19, 2006, at Westwood Nursing Center, Clinton. In 1947, he left the farm to attend six-month auctioneer course at the Reppert School of Auctioneering in Decatur, Illinois. He graduated out of a class of 261 students. Billy was later selected by one of his teachers and wife, Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Drake of Decatur, Illinois, to be auctioneer at the auction house they owned. In September 1947, while at the Decatur Auto Auction, he was introduced by his former boss, Mrs. Leona Drake, to his wife-to-be, Belly Elizabeth Radcliff of Tuscola, Illinois.

Billy and Betty rejoice that each of their three children, as well as sons and daughter-in-law have named Christ as their personal Savior and today serve in various capacities in their respective churches. They strongly believe in the power of prayer and how difficult it would be to rear children properly without Christ at the center of their lives. They believe that parents today should teach their children to work and save, regardless of their financial status. Looking back, Billy says he sees now that neither Christ nor the Bible ever failed him. Though he may have been disobedient at times in his life, he knows that because of his faithfulness, he is forgiven.

JONES, Oliver
1821-1903
Clinton Missouri, May 9 1903 - Oliver Jones, A Good Man Gone To His Reward - A quiet home, a home of love, of contentment, of hospitality, of generosity, has been robbed of its directing head. None ever entered that home on a mission of business that did not find a kindly welcome and a dispatch of matters that betokened rugged honest and fair dealing. If on a mission of mercy, an attentive ear, a warm heart and an open purse greeted the visitor. Many homeless ones found a place of refuge beneath this roof. Social outcasts were taken in, warmed, fed, clothed and filled with ambitions for a better life. In short, the life lived by Oliver Jones, in Clinton, was full of good deeds and worthy of emulation. He was born in New York in February, 1821; was married to Lillis Atwood in 1843. His wife died February 15, 1903. His going was deferred until 9:30 p.m. May 3, 1903 The father of Oliver Jones was a tanner and the son learned the trade and worked for his father for wages and after he had reached his majority, finally succeeded to the business, in partnership with his brother. When the new firm had become well established, a fire destroyed the entire plant and left the owners penniless, but with determination and business integrity, the plant was soon running successfully again. Mr. Jones sold out and went west, finally locating in Minnesota, where he invested in lands and entered actively into farming and stock raising. Having gained a competence, he traveled some in the far west and, in search of a milder climate, ten years ago he bought a home in Clinton where he spent his winters. His summers were passed in Minnesota, where he also maintained a home. His household was composed of himself, his wife and daughter, Miss Eva. His son, O. A. Jones, lives near Flemington, while his three other daughters are married and live in Minnesota. Funeral services were at the home and the remains were taken to Wykoff, Minn. for internment, accompanied by his son and daughters - Miss Eva, Mrs. Jas. Jones and Mrs. H. A. Wells.

Put a fishing pole, gun or his metal detector in his hand and he was ready to go in a flash. He had a special smile, a caring heart and a warm embrace that was worth a million dollars. To his children in their troubles and their joys, he took pride in all achievements and mistakes and he was always there for his two boys, Brian and Stephen.

JONES, Reuben Addison
1851-1929
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - R. A. Jones Died - At his home west of Calhoun Sunday morning at 3:30. He had been in failing health for several years, but grew worse the last few months and since then his children had taken turns staying to nurse and cheer him and their brave little mother. All were at his bedside during the last illness except George, who lives in California. Reuben Addison Jones, son of Acrey Berry and Clarissa Jones, was born in Madison county, Va., March 13, 1851. He came with his parents to Missouri in 1859 and settled on the place that had been his home until his death. He was married to Frances E. Parks, October 9, 1873, who survives him. To this union were born nine children - Frank, Clinton, Okla.; Mrs. Lena Breeding, Muskogee, Okla.; George, Los Angeles, Cal.; Lee, near Calhoun; Kenneth, the twin brother of Lee, died in infancy; Jennie, Mrs. Tom Clark, of Calhoun; Eugene, Charley and Rolla, near Calhoun. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Eunice Parks, near his home, who was ever willing to do what she could and one brother, Hiram B. Jones, of Leedey, Okla. He was very fond of his grandchildren, 15 of whom survive. He was a great sufferer during his last illness, but expressed himself many times as being willing and ready to go, advising his children to read their Bible daily and live by its teachings. Many times he quoted this passage of scripture - "Come unto Me, all ye that are heavy laden and I will give you rest," stating that he longed for that rest. Mr. Jones was a popular musician, playing the violin and organ with equal skill. He also had a splendid voice and a large repertoire of song and music. He visited the homes of sick friends and cheered them with the ministry of music. He visited homes of laughter, singing songs of mirth, making his gift of music a part of his life. No gathering was complete without him. Just one year ago he spent a Sunday afternoon in the home of the deceased editor of this paper, when he sang and played several hours to the delight of T. O. Smith, who was then ill, and his invalid wife. Such a happy afternoon it was, the last earthly meeting time of old friends and relatives, Rube and Fanny and T. O. and Frankie. The next time all come it was for T. O. Smith's funeral; the next time for his wife's. This time a part of their children went to his funeral. Now just Cousin Fannie is left - she who has courageously met every emergency; she who has shared every responsibility of her husband's life, shielding him and their children from every hardship possible. On her, this going will be the hardest for we know these days will be lonely, more so than it is possible for those of us who have not endured it, can realize. Her children all have homes of their own, but they are the fine children who she has had so great a part in giving to the world and they will bring comfort and cheer to her, as much as humanly possible. Rube Jones for years bred and trained fine horses and cattle. He was always a prominent figure at all fairs and horse shows, sitting erectly in his saddle, as he was never as happy as when on a fine horse and he always owned the best in Missouri. Hospitality always reigned supreme in the home of Rube and Fannie Jones. We always enjoyed a visit there. My mother said she would rather hear Rube Jones play and sing than anyone she knew and that Fannie Jones was the best and finest woman she knew. So naturally we children loved them nearly next to our own parents. Our hearts go out to Cousin Fannie in her hour of sorrow and the many hours of loneliness as well as to her children. The funeral was held in the Calhoun Baptist church Tuesday afternoon. His body was laid in the Calhoun cemetery.

JONES, Robert Lee
1885-1967
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Daily Democrat - Nov. 29, 1967 Last rites for Lee Jones, 82, of 523 East Jefferson, Clinton, prominent farmer and livestock dealer of Henry County, who passed away at the Wetzel Hospital in Clinton Wednesday, November 22, 1967 at 8:00 pm where he had been a patient since October 30, were held at the Calhoun Baptist Church Sunday, November 26. Burial was in the Calhoun Cemetery with the Housey Funeral Home in charge. Robert Lee Jones, twin son of Reuben A. and Fannie (Parks) Jones was born one and one-half miles west of Calhoun, June 26, 1885, and departed this life Wednesday, November 22, 1967, at 8:00 p.m. at the Wetzel Hospital in Clinton at the age of 82 years and five months. He was preceded in death by an infant son, Louis Dale; his parents, three brothers, one sister and two grandchildren. Early in life he professed his faith in Christ and united with the Calhoun Baptist Church where he served as a deacon for 47 years. He was most grateful that he was physically able to attend the church's 110th anniversary last August 27th, and on that occasion, he and his son, Floyd, were honored for having served for 16 years as the only father-son deacon team in the history of the church. Mr. Jones was always a wonderful counselor and close friend to the many dedicated pastors who served the church. He had a special interest and understanding for young people, and was deeply concerned about his two grandsons in service, Darrell Don Ward, stationed in Vietnam and Brad Cooper, stationed in Germany. On February 17, 1909, he was united in marriage to Maude Ethel Dannatt of Calhoun. They made their first home for 10 years one mile west of Calhoun on the farm now owned by their youngest son, Col. Melvin (Billy). They moved later to a farm 2 1/2 miles south of Calhoun, known as Catalpa Grove Stock Farm, where they resided 48 years. This home, with his faithful Christian companion by his side, was his castle, for it was here that he was able to exercise his love for the soil, his cattle and his riding horses, and to extend the hospitality of his home to friends, relatives and strangers. It was also here that he and Mrs. Jones celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary on February 17, 1959. On April 4, 1967, they moved to their present home at 523 East Jefferson, Clinton. Mr. Jones was an ardent Democrat and always proud that he was named for the famous General Robert E. Lee. He and his sons were known throughout the South and Middle West where for years they sold and exhibited mules. In later years, they judged some of the nation's leading mule shows. For many years, he was Superintendent of the Mule Department of the Calhoun Colt Show and was in attendance each year, except for two when hospitalized. His "going home" on Thanksgiving Eve was in a measure, timely, since many times he had expressed joy and thankfulness for having his seven children and their families present for various reunions and good times enriched with good music and wholesome fun. He is survived by his devoted wife, Maude, of the home, who lovingly cared for him through his illness, and who, with a daughter, Ethlyn, were at his bedside when he passed away; sons, Floyd and Col. Melvin (Billy) of Calhoun and Veryl Lee of Clinton; daughters, Ethlyn of St. Louis, Mrs. R. E. (Ada) Searcy of Topeka, Kansas, Mrs. D. P. (Elsie) Cooper of Windsor and Mrs. Don (Nadene) Ward of Blairstown; 13 grandchildren, and two great granddaughters, one sister, Mrs. Thomas (Jennie) Clark, Clinton; brothers, Charley of Clinton, and Eugene and Rolla of Calhoun; other relatives and a host of friends. Mr. Jones, who loved life and lived it to the fullest, seldom met a stranger. Through his long illness he remained mentally alert and interested in world events and the varied activities of his devoted family. His sparkling wit, keen sense of humor and deep humility will be sadly missed by his wide circle of friends and loved ones. Relatives and friends who attended from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Miles, Jr., Carrollton; Col. and Mrs. Roy G. Johnston, Belton; Mr. and Mrs. Charles Keirsey, Butler; Eddie Limberg, Lexington; Mr. and Mrs. Ben Mangina, Grandview; George Richter, Lincoln; Mr. and Mrs. Paul Phipps, Ward Young, Holden; Mr. and Mrs. Harry Duvall, Alpha Ingle, Marguerite Kluttz, Mr. and Mrs. Frankie Rufenacht, Robert lee Burcham, Kansas City, MO; Mr. and Mrs. Amos York, Osceola; Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Hays, Garden City; Mr. and Mrs. Tom Snyder, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Rufenacht, Lowry City; Stanley Grady, Sedalia; Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Kenney, Appleton City; Keith Jones, Mrs. Perry A.

JORDAN, John Felix Judge
1863-1932
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Judge John Felix Jordan died at his home in Calhoun, at 4:30 a.m. Monday, with heart trouble and complications. He had been in failing health since last September and unable to leave his house about six weeks previous to his death. During that time he told his loved ones that he knew his earthly stay would not be long and what he wished them to do. J. F. Jordan was born January 10, 1863, southwest of Roseland, the son of Wm. and Rebecca Jordan. His father was a native of Kentucky; his mother from Tennessee. These early settlers brought to Henry county the slaves and customs of the southland. His father died when he was but eight years old, and the burdens and responsibilities as the head of the household fell upon his young shoulders. Two years later, young John and his brother J. W., started to plow and put in a crop. He was eager for an education, although handicapped by the fact that he was his mother's chief support and that school terms were only four months a year and often the four months were shortened to two months for him on account of the home responsibilities. One wondered how he kept up with the other boys of his age, but he not only did so but took every prize offered in spelling, ciphering and other things taught in the schools at that time. The farm of 240 acres that belonged to his mother and father, was always thrifty, and showed that he loved the out-of-doors and the tending and tilling of the soil. June 4, 1893, he was united in marriage with Miss Mary L. Bradley, who is a sister of Dr. Bradley of Windsor. Their marriage has been one of happiness and devotion to each other, as they both loved their home and their only son, Ray, who is studying medicine and surgery, having completed Central College at Fayette, then received his B.S. degree in the University of Missouri, and spent a year in the University at Louisville, Kentucky, studying medicine. He has been in the state hospital in Nevada the past year and expects to return later to Louisville to get his degree. Mr. and Mrs. Jordan lived on the home place of his parents until thirteen years ago when they moved northwest of Calhoun where they would be nearer a high school for their son. This was their home until a year ago when they rented their farm and moved into Calhoun to the second house north of the overhead bridge where Mr. Jordan died. About this home are found evidences of the things that Judge Jordan loved - first his wife and son, then his well kept house, lawn and garden. He was converted a number of years ago and united with the Olivet Baptist Church where he taught in the Sunday Schools and acted as superintendent. After moving nearer Calhoun, he moved his membership to the Calhoun Baptist Church, where it was at the time of his death. He was elected as associate county judge in 1930 and had announced his candidacy for reelection, which perhaps would have been made with no opposition, for through his good judgment and knowledge of business, he was known by the Democrats and voters of Henry county to be dependable in every sense of the word. Since he became county judge, he had made many friends in Clinton, and often times when he was holding court here, he would stop at the Clinton Eye for a brief visit and with twinkling eyes would tell many experiences that had come into his life. The Eye remembers especially how much he enjoyed the radio that his son sent him last year as a gift, and he stated "no one needs to get out nights anymore as there is plenty of entertainment by your own fireside, when you have a good radio." The funeral of Judge Jordan was held at the Calhoun Baptist Church Tuesday afternoon. The flag on the courthouse was at half mast from the time he passed away until after the funeral. The courthouse was closed from 2 until 4 p.m. Tuesday during the funeral hour. The church was crowded with sorrowing friends, all not being able to get inside. Many were present from Clinton, Windsor, and over the county. There was a large floral offering. The Henry county offices at the courthouse sent a large wreath made of roses.

JORDAN, Raevis Haskell "Ray"
1905-2003
The San Diego Union Tribune on Sept. 24, 2003 - Ray H. Jordan, who led J.C. Penney's move into catalog sales in 1962 and then became president of the company during a period of rapid expansion and diversification, died Sept. 16 in Vero Beach, Fla. He was 98. Mr. Jordan was executive vice president of J.C. Penney when he was assigned to look into the catalog business. At the time, Chicago-based retailers such as Sears, Roebuck & Co., Montgomery Ward and Spiegel dominated the field. At Mr. Jordan's suggestion, Penney, which was then based in New York, entered the segment by acquiring General Merchandise, a small but highly automated mail-order company in Milwaukee, Wis. Mr. Jordan was appointed president two years later despite having served notice that he wanted to retire the next year. William M. Batten, the company's chief executive, then managed to persuade him to stay through 1968. Batten came to be recognized as a leading strategist in retailing and Mr. Jordan as the operations expert who supported Batten's visions. "He had a total identification with the Penney company,"said Gordon Lindsey, a Penney executive who helped Mr. Jordan put together his memoirs. Raevis Haskell Jordan (he changed his legal name to Ray as an adult) was born April 13, 1905, in Roseland, Mo. He taught school in one-room schoolhouses in Missouri and Oklahoma to support himself as he studied at Southwest Baptist University and the University of Oklahoma, but went to work at Penney before graduating when he ran out of money. His first job was managing a Penney store in Picher, Okla., then a rugged frontier mining town. He spent nights in the store with a shotgun after a series of burglaries and was happy when Penney moved him to nearby Frederick, Okla. His rise through Penney's management ranks was interrupted only by a three-year stint in the Navy during World War II. Most of that service was spent as a lieutenant on tankers in the Pacific and Indian oceans. Before shipping out, in 1943, he married Rosalie Aldridge, who survives him. Other survivors include his daughters, Judith R. Sartori, of Uniondale, N.Y., and Rosalinda Jordan, of Sebastian, Fla.; three grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. Mr. Jordan remained on the Penney board until 1975. While the catalog business proved to be a huge success, Mr. Jordan's shared enthusiasm with Batten for new ventures did not always work out so well. He was a strong supporter of Penney's investment in Treasure Island, a discount chain that experimented with many trends in retailing but lost a considerable amount of money before Penney discontinued it in the 1980s.

JORDAN, Virgil Orville
1898-1922
Laurel Oak Cemetery (J), Windsor, Henry Co, MO
The Windsor Review, Henry County, Missouri, July 13th, 1922. Virgil Jordan Dead -- "Life has it's sunshine, it's shadows and it's joys." Some one has truly said. To no profession or calling is this more true, than to the newspaper man. He is called upon to write of joys of the public and then again with his heart aching fit to burst, he is called upon to write of the death of a friend. Such a duty has the writer this week in chronicling the death of Virgil O. Jordan, who died at the family home in Warrensburg, Monday morning at 5:20 o'clock after a week's illness from uraemic poisoning. The acquaintance of the writer with Virgil began something like five years ago in a business way. At first we thought he was reserved and hard to get really close to, but as time wore on there seemed to be a mutual attraction for us, something seemed to draw us closer and closer. One day he came into The Review office and presented us with a book of original poems written by him and upon the fly-leaf were these words. "Dedicated to My Friend, Charles H. Burgess." It was like a bolt from a clear sky and opened wide the floodgates of true friendship. Later he came into The Review office with the intentions of learning the printing business in all its branches. For nearly three years, he was one of our trusted employees and it was the earnest desire of all that he should receive the most careful and painstaking instruction. As we learned to know him better, he became more and more like a son or younger brother. In all that he was, in all that he expected to be, he had our best wishes and Godspeed. A month or more ago, he left Windsor for Kansas City with the intentions of going on to Liberty for the purpose of making arrangements to attend William Jewell College and eventually enter the ministry. He made arrangements and then went to Warrensburg, where his parents had recently moved and entered the employ of the Standard-Herald for the summer. He was taken seriously ill July 4th and grew gradually worse, being unconscious most of the time, until with a song upon his lips Monday morning, his immortal spirit wafted its flight to the God who gave it, to Him whom he loved so devotedly and to whom he was so true. He was more than friend to us and our heart is sad and our eyes fill with tears as we write these few feeble lines which say so little and yet, mean so much to us. In every line of endeavor or at his church, he was a most willing and efficient worker. It was said of him Tuesday, that he had done more to advance the cause of Christ than scores of ministers who are now filling the pulpits in the land. He had been president of the B.Y.P.U. at the Baptist church and had built it from a small beginning until it was the largest young people's society in Windsor. Quiet and unobtrusive, yet filled with indomitable courage and a desire to do good characterized his entire life. He was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. James W. Jordan and was born January 13th, 1900 in Henry County, near Roseland. He received his education in the Windsor public school and was a graduate from our high school. The family had resided in Windsor for many years, moving from here about June 1st to Warrensburg, where they have since resided. He is survived by the parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Jordan, one brother, Reavis, and one sister, Irene, of Warrensburg, and his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. L. D. Cannon, and a score of other relatives in Windsor and vicinity. The sorrowing relatives arrived overland from Warrensburg with the body, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock and it was taken direct to the Baptist church, of which the deceased had been a member since early childhood, and Rev. J. C. House of Higginsville, his former pastor and friend, assisted by the pastor, Rev. G. W. Wright, conducted the funeral service and with a voice choked with emotion, paid a glowing tribute to the character and life of this sterling young man. The body was taken to beautiful Laurel Oak cemetery and laid to rest to await the resurrection morn. The writer, with the host of friends of the family inWindsor, extends to the bereaved relatives our hearts best sympathy in this their hour of sorrow and bereavement.

JOURNEY, Ferdinand Emmett
1848-1923
Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Springfield Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Once more the reaper's scythe has been thrust into the harvest to garner the grain made ripe by the lapse of time, and a husband, father, neighbor and friend has responded to the call "Come up higher to meet the conditions of life and peace ordained of God who giveth as the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." Though many have fallen out of the ranks of the walks of man and few of their numbers are left. Yes, one by one these early pioneers of our country are passing the last milestone of life to receive their reward. These early settlers are entitled to a high and honorable place in the memory of their scions, for wherever met, they are the same noble self-sacrificing people, and Ferdinand Emmett Journey was no exception to the rule. born in St. Charles county, near St. Louis, Mo., December 7th, 1848, he lived in one of the cycles of time in this world's progress when the latent forces of nature were responding with the most fervent vividness to the inventive genius of man, occupying the space of time intervening between the primeval simplicity that characterized the meagre home comforts and surrounding of our hardy pioneers, and that of the luxurious comforts that now grace our firesides. His parents removed to the eastern part of Henry county when he was seven years of age, where he grew to manhood, and spent his entire life of more than 74 years witnessing the change of his county from a vast domain to a high state of cultivation. More than fifty-four years ago he chose as his companion, Jane Carleton, crowning each other as supreme, in deed and thought by acknowledging the others supremacy and their union the most splendid achievement, permitting love to illuminate the way, for in every true family there is a beautiful love storey; that is why the world is as good as it is, and a dream to which humanity may long to aspire. Seven children graced this union - W. A. and E. S. of Chilhowee, Mo.; Mrs. J. H. Gresham, of Albuquerque, New Mexico; Mrs. W. C. Jennings of Roseland, Mo.; Mrs. J. E. Poague of Santiago, Benton County, Mo., and Mrs. T. G. Twyman, of Grand Junction, Colorado, on the death of Mrs. C. F. Jennings, twenty years ago, her daughter Lucile, was taken into their home and since received a daughter's care and affection. His kind, friendly nature received the approbation of all whom it was his pleasure to meet. Remembering his Creator in the days of his youth, he identified himself with the Tebo Baptist church, and with only those short comings characteristics of fallible humanity, he lived a consistent Christian life to the day of death, which occurred at his late home in Clinton, Mo., April 25th, 1923, all children being present at his bedside. He leaves the companion and children, together with numerous relatives and friends to mourn their loss, "but not as those who die without hope, for blessed are the dead who die in the faith of the Lord." There was a brief service held at the family home after which his remains were taken to his beloved Mt. Olivet church where funeral services were conducted, after which he was laid to rest in Mt. Olivet cemetery, by sorrowing relatives and friends.

She was the only child and grandchild and beloved of her grandparents and uncle. Her family were prominent merchants in Paola. She attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism, considered the preeminent school in that field. While there, she met tall handsome Vance J. Julian, a young law student from Clinton. Because of her outstanding ability in journalism, she was awarded the honor, sponsored by Dean Walter Williams of the School of Journalism, of traveling for 14 months around the world in the company of fellow student and lifelong friend Mary Shapiro to work and visit with the great newspapers of the world. Upon her return, she was married on September 24, 1931, at her parents' home in Paola, Kansas, to Vance J. Julian. The wedding was extensively reported in the Henry County papers.

Elmer Julian, Vance's brother, was the best man. Also attending were the lifelong friends of the bride and groom, Dr. and Mrs. R. S. Hollingsworth. After their wedding trip through the south, they made their home in Clinton until 1970. To Vance and Elizabeth was born their only child, Theodore Ahrens Julian, named after Elizabeth's grandfather. Ted became an attorney, like his father, married his beloved Lil and settled with her in Phoenix, Arizona. Vance and Elizabeth followed them to Phoenix when Vance retired and lived in that area for the rest of their lives. They enjoyed the company of their grandsons, Todd, who became an attorney like his father and grandfather, and Vance who became a physician. Tragically Ted died in 1984 and Vance died a few years later. After their deaths, their grandson Vance married and had a son, Brendan, who celebrated his third birthday with his great-grandmother Gee-Gee a few days before her death.

JULIAN, Joseph William
1870-1949
Englewood Cemetery (J), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Daily Democrat, September 1949 - Joe W. Julian, 203 North Carter Street, one of the older Henry County citizens, died at the General hospital Friday night, September 2, after an illness of three days. Mr. Julian, who was nearing his eightieth birthday, had been strong and vigorous despite his many years until his final illness. With his passing another of the sturdy pioneers of the county has passed into memory. Judge Julian had lived long and had grown wise in the memories retained by his active mind. He was born on February 1, 1870, a son of Madison J. Fiske and Rebecca Julian, who came to Missouri in 1855 from Tennessee a six months trip in wagons pulled by oxen and driving a herd of 75 head of cattle. M. J. F. Julian was a member of the 40th Regiment of the Missouri Militia in the Civil War. Joe W. Julian was born in Henry County, three miles southwest of Calhoun, one of ten children, all of whom had preceded the veteran Clinton justice of the peace to the Great Beyond. As a boy he received his education in the public schools of Leesville and when about twenty years of age he farmed for several years in eastern Henry County. He always recalled that period with pleasure and could tell many interesting tales of his experiences at the plow and also fishing in the streams. He moved to Clinton and entered the produce business with his brother, W. G. Julian, and they had conducted a large and successful concern. They shipped live poultry by carload lots to eastern markets and Mr. Julian often accompanied these cars. He was of that pioneer type that did not fear hard work over long periods and his energy and ambition was boundless. After ten years in partnership with his brother, he engaged in the livery and feed business and later became the owner of a grocery store, before his retirement. He served several terms as a member of Clinton Township until 1946 when the justices were replaced by the magistrate court under the new constitution. He was united in marriage on March 22, 1894 with Miss Janie Hall, daughter of John and Mary (Vance) Hall, also pioneer settlers of Henry County. They were married by Squire Cashman, and Judge Julian was quoted as saying it was a beautiful day. That marriage was a happy one and never were two people more devoted than this kindly couple. Seldom was one seen without the other. They avoided the complexities of our modern life and clung tenaciously to the simple elementary living of their pioneer ancestry. They observed their Golden Wedding anniversary with fond happiness. There were eight children, five surviving, Mrs. Philip (Elsie) Trainer, Clinton; Mrs. Floyd (Effie) Sperry, Clinton; Vance Julian, Clinton; Elmer H. Julian, Mill Valley, California; and Mrs. Dorothy McCool, of Knob Noster. Judge Julian leaves his widow, eighteen grandchildren (nine boys and nine girls) and one great-grandson. He was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Clinton, and his membership was true by deed in addition to voice. He faithfully served each pastor, and was remembered with sincere appreciation by these church leaders. It is questionable if any man in this part of Missouri had as wide an acquaintance as did Joe W. Julian. He had a fine intellect and was gifted with a rugged honesty and and simple directiveness in speech, word and action. His friends delighted to hear his tales of Missouri in the old days and he had a gift of whimsical humor that enhanced the telling. The First Baptist Church was filled with friends and relatives who came to pay their last respects to Mr. Julian, on Sunday afternoon. Interment was in Englewood Cemetery with the following grandsons and grandnephews and a nephew serving as pall bearers, David Payne, Floyd Logan Sperry Jr., William J. Sperry, Ira Estell, Alfred Julian, William Sorter, Bus Julian, Ralph Julian.
