NAGEL, Lena GENZBERGER
1860-1938
Gates of Peace Cemetery, Louisiana, Pike Co, MO
MRS. A. NAGEL PASSES -- Death, unheard and unknown, stepped into the apartment of Mrs. A. Nagel at the Glasscock home, North Main street, early Friday morning to gently close her eyes in the last long sleep. Mrs. Nagel had been heard stirring in her apartment near 4:00 a.m., or about the time the rain broke. She went into the little kitchenette where she had a cot under a window, on which she had often rested the last hot days. Here she lay down, awaiting the dawn of a new day, and fell asleep, peacefully and quietly, and so Mrs. Glasscock, who had been caring for her, found her spirit fled. I. G. Nagel, her beloved only son, had seen his mother at noon the day before and thought her more nervous and under greater strain than usual—a condition often observed in the last months as she had gradually become weaker. Early in the summer she was in bed two months, but rallied only to lose ground with the waning season. Lena Genzberger was born in Germany March 17, 1860, one of 13 children. As a young child she was brought to the United States with her people, who came to Louisiana, Mo., to engage in the mercantile business. Early in life she became the wife of Alexander Nagel, merchant of Ashland, Ill., and to them an only son was born, Irving Nagel, now of Clinton. The course of business careers brought Mr. Nagel to Clinton in 1921, having purchased an interest in the S. Degen department store, east side of the square, where the Mattingly and Nagel Ready to Wear stores are today. It had long been an institution in Clinton and survives now in part through the capable hands of their son, who came to Clinton the year following his parents. Mrs. Nagel was a devoted wife and mother, happily and cheerfully discharging the tasks of her household which was always kept with an immaculate neatness, characteristic of her well ordered life. She had a natural love of music and flowers, inherited from German forebears possibly, which she has passed on to the third generation, for in her only grandson is seen distinct skill in his garden and a musical gift, encouraged by his music loving father. In her girlhood, Mrs. Nagel was quite a musician, deriving much pleasure and comfort from the art so fluent from her talented piano trained fingers. The loss of her hearing, noticed first by her son on his departure for the World War, was complete on his return nearly two years later. It was a terrible handicap to her, an affliction of which she was ever conscious and which was thought to have contributed largely to her gradual loss of health. Though shut away in late years from the harmonies to which her life had become attuned, she kept, however, her interest in friends and living. She was a great reader, especially of the papers and current magazines and kept quantities of clippings, many of which she thought would have particular appeal or interest for certain persons for whom she had intended them. She had enjoyed the most perfect health until turning her 70th milestone. The energy of her step was but an outward manifestation of the tireless resistance of her whole physique, equaled by her interest in life. The humor she found in things about her and the cheer of her happy smile invited friendship, the return of which, even in the smallest way, was appreciated and cherished. These qualities made her a successful club woman and in demand socially, during the years when she had energy and enthusiasm for such things. Mrs. Nagel is survived by her one son and grandson, Eugene, of Clinton, and one brother, Michael, of St. Louis. The funeral services were conducted at Louisiana, Mo. at 11:00 a.m. Sunday by Dr. Kuppin of Quincy, Ill. Interment followed beside her husband, whose passing was on New Years Eve, 1928. Wilkinson Funeral Service in charge.

Poor, old grief-stricken wife and three children, who can portray their sorrow for they all loved him with a tenderness truly beautiful to behold and indeed he merited it all!

Early in the Civil War, he enlisted in the 10 Ky., V.O., maintaining a record second to none for bravery and soldierly qualities among his comrades. Later he joined the 38th O.V.I. and participated in all the hardships and many of the engagements of the famous march to the sea and thence to Richmond under the great Sherman. In 1866 he was married to Mrs. Lide Collins, of Repley, Ohio, and in '67 he migrated to Missouri, settling on a farm near Ladue. Three children were born to this union - James, Lilly and Laura, all of whom reside in Washington. Bro. Alfred was a quiet, retiring man and greatly respected by all who knew him.

NEILL, Cannarissa ADAIR
1868-1928
Englewood Cemetery (N), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. S. T. Neill's life journey completed. The end came Tuesday, July 3, at 10:59 p.m., at her beautiful home on East Green Street, where she had been tenderly cared for since May 26, by her beloved husband and their only son Steve. The latter part of July 1927 she underwent an operation for cancer, then a second one, upon indications of its return, then this spring another, when it was known that science could not arrest the terrible disease, so she gave up and planned her home going. For every operation Mrs. Celeste Wilbur had been her beloved nurse. When she took worse in May, Mrs. Wilbur was unable to come on account of illness of relatives, then became ill her self, so Mrs. Neill would consent to no one coming, preferring the cheer, companionship and comfort of her husband and son. Rich are they in memories of this privilege in providing for her comfort. She unfolded to them richness of life in a way they had never known it. One day she awakened out of a deep sleep, and gave Dr. Neill these words, "You see now, the lesson we have learned, we have all aimed too low," which he has kept and treasured in his heart. For eleven days previous to her death she took no medicine. For nine days before her death she suffered no pain - a blessed relief - there had been so much. About three o'clock Tuesday, when her husband wakened from a nap, he saw a great change had come, and as the shadows deepened she went to her last sleep. Miss Cannaissa Adair was the youngest daughter of the late William and Dorcas Fuqua Adair. She was born at the Adair homestead near Shawnee Mound, June 4, 1868. She attended the Lamkin Academy, then the Baird College, from which she graduated in 1891. She was married to Dr. Stephen T. Neill, February 24, 1892. They went immediately to her present home on east Green street, where she enjoyed all those sweet years of companionship and understanding since. To this union one son, Stephen T. Neill, Jr., was given, who is left to comfort his father. She also leaves one brother, Clay Adair, of St. Louis, and one sister, Mrs. Hale Montgomery, Clinton. She was devoted to her home and child. Being a well educated and bright woman, she found much pleasure in the Clinton Shakespeare Club and the Tourist Club. She was also a member of the Baptist Bible Class and the Missionary Society. She was converted in her girlhood, under the ministry of Rev. Menefee, and united with the Baptist church. here she had belonged since. The writer never met her but she gave me a word of cheer or a commendation for something she liked in the Eye. She remembered to do those little kindness for neighbors and friends that make life so worth while. She belonged to the Baird College Alumnae Association and attended the luncheon in June 1927, leaving before the social part for a month's tour of the West with her husband, where they enjoyed the scenic beauties. On her return she underwent the first operation. Her funeral was held on the beautiful lawn Thursday morning. Interment in the family lot in Englewood. She had her house in order. During the last weeks she had her husband get the house entirely cleaned, the curtains taken down and washed so they would be ready for the funeral. She planned her dress, every detail. She was ready to go. Her earthly work was completed.

1907-1992
Englewood Cemetery (N), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - William Raymond Eugene Nelson, 84, Clinton, died Thursday, October 1, 1992, at Research Medical Center in Kansas City. - William Raymond Eugene Nelson was born December 23, 1907, in Trego County, Kansas, to Axel and Emma Nelson. He was the third of seven children. Immigrant families relied heavily on their faith and the Nelson's were no exception. After establishing their homes, they built a Swedish Lutheran Church in Ogallah, Kansas, near their farms. It was here that Ray was baptized and confirmed. Growing up in a farm family, he learned the importance of hard work and family values, that we realize now, should be the base of our society. In those days, farming didn't mean just raising crops; you had to be a carpenter, stone cutter, rancher and general handyman. He was talented in all these areas. With his good looks and sense of humor, it was easy for him to win the heart of Helen Lois Campbell. They eloped August 3, 1930, and settled near his family home in Ellis (Ogallah). It was there that they gave birth to and raised their three daughters, Larae Alice, Kathleen Ann and Barbara Ellen. In 1959, Ray, Helen and Barbara moved here to Clinton where he became service manager for his son-in-law at Stayton Chevrolet. He retired in 1970, but wanted to keep busy. He started rasing cattle and enjoyed being outdoors. His 10 grandchildren remember riding out to the farm in his old gray truck and having to help find and count all the cows, especially touching the electric fence. He finally quit raising cattle, but kept active with his daily walks. He cared for his wife, Helen, until she passed away in 1988. His family, Larae and Bob Stayton, Kathleen and Ron Davis, and Barbara and Don Donnohue will miss his joyful and humble spirit. His grandchildren will miss the tickles and fun. And his six and a half great-grandchildren will miss the hugs and smiles he gave so generously. Funeral services were Saturday, October 3, 1992, at the United Methodist Church, Clinton. Burial was in Englewood Cemetery.

He held various offices in the church, also taught in the Sunday school.

NEWBILL, May Lenora WILLIAMS
1883-1934
Englewood Cemetery (N), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. Albert Newbill At Rest -- The earthly tasks of Mrs. Albert Newbill were ended at 2:50 a.m. Saturday, April 14, at the SBA Hospital in Topeka, Kans., where she had been taken for a major operation April 2. She had suffered for some time and had finally made up her mind to undergo the operation, which caused her death. May Lenora Williams was born in Clinton, but most of her life was spent in Deepwater, where she went after her marriage with her husband, Albert Newbill. For many years Mr. Newbill was shop foreman at the Dickey Clay Manufacturing Company at Deepwater, and since moving to Clinton two or three years ago he has been engineer at Larabee Mills. Her two children, Charles F., who is manager of the Clinton Standard Oil Station at the northwest corner of the square, and Cecil A., of Carrollton, salesman for the Kansas City Wholesale Grocery Company with territory in North Missouri, were the joy of Mrs. Newbill's life. Surviving Mrs. Newbill besides her husband and two sons are: her mother, Mrs. Charles Williams, and brother and sisters: Mrs. Floyd Thompson, Mrs. Ernest Woodard, and Harry Williams, all of Deepwater; Mrs. Louis Haverland, Kansas City, and Mrs. Henry Gabel, Portland, Oregon. In early life she united with the Deepwater Christian church where she remained a faithful member unto death. She was active in church work and in her girlhood took a leading part in the song services of the church. She also sang in school and public entertainments. Mrs. Newbill was a charter member of the Deepwater Order of Eastern Star and was active in its organization. She held several important offices in the order while she resided in Deepwater. Mrs. Newbill was justly proud of her two sons. Their joys were her joys and their sorrows were her sorrows and she always maintained a firm mien that they might gain courage from her sublime example. She was ever interested in their success and welfare and would have gone to the ends of the earth for her boys. The love of mother is like the love of Christ; and no man who follows the wishes of his mother will ever wander far from the paths of righteousness. Mother love is the golden cord that binds the earth to God. She left behind no man-made grants to title, rank or fame. Hers was a finer gift, that rose superior to all temporal, selfish urge. It glorified the path wherein she walked and showed that hearts -- not birth -- can make a queen. In all her contacts throughout life her love for others and a sympathetic understanding of their trouble transformed this cord into harmony. She will be missed but her influence and character will not die. Her life was a glorious experience which has passed on as a living heritage to those who remain. We shall never forget her as she lay among the flowers, her face in dreamless sleep illumined with the same old smile , that always greeted those she knew -- the hall mark of her ever ready human sympathy and concern. Funeral services were conducted at her late home at 210 North Second street. Burial was in Englewood cemetery.

1865-1932
Mt. Zion Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - James P. Nichols was found dead in bed at his home south of the Mound Springs school, early Friday morning. He had been in poor health for some time and the day previous to his death he was not feeling nearly so well but was able to go about his regular work. Dr. Rogers, of Brownington was summoned, who said his death was due to heart failure. He was found by his son's wife, Mrs. Paul Nichols. She and her husband and Jas. P. Nichols had lived together for the past four years. James Parks Nichols, only child of James and Janie Nichols, was born in Jasper County, Missouri, December 19 18864, died March 25 aged 66 years three months and six days. Little Jim was left fatherless when he was about a year old. His father with a companion had captured a horse thief and were guarding him until they could take him to jail. The other man left the room and accidentally his gun was left on the table. The thief grabbed the gun and shot and killed young Nichols. Soon after the tragic death of her husband, Mrs. Nichols came to Henry County with little Jim, and this had been his home since with the exception of a few months. Naturally the tragedy made an impression on the lad. He learned to abhor dishonesty or crime in any form. The son of pioneer parents, he inherited sterling qualities that have gone with him through life. He was noted among his friends and neighbors for his honesty, generosity and all the traits that go to make a good father and a fine citizen. February 2 1890 he was married to Miss Ida Turner. Six children were given them. The mother and an infant passed away December 7, 1904. The living children are Glen F., George H., Mary (now Mrs. Roy Raymond), Charles G. and Paul, all of the southeast part of the county. He also leaves three grandchildren, Jewel, Delora Jane and Dixie Raymond, the children of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Raymond. To these little children he was devoted.

Detwieler, east of Clinton and a half brother, Charles Slavens, Wellington, CO; also three step sisters, Mrs. Calista Ballard, Rolling Bay WA; Mrs. Willard Crews, Liberty, MO; Mrs. Harry Parks, south of Tightwad. He was one of Henry County's bravest men, even though hardships were many. After the death of his wife, he bravely shouldered the responsibilities of filling the place of both mother and father. He never failed his family. These noble sons and daughters reflect the training he gave them. He was honest and upright in his dealings always. Funeral at the Mt. Zion Methodist church Saturday afternoon. His body was laid in the Mt. Zion cemetery by the side of his wife.

NICHOLS, Opal Eula BUNCH
1909-1996
Parks Chapel Cemetery, Leesville Twp, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Opal Eula Bunch Nichols was born June 30, 1909, at Mt. Zion, in Henry County, and died Saturday, June 15, 1996, at the Westwood Nursing Center in Clinton. She was the daughter of William David and Mary Susan Snyder Bunch. Opal married Paul Turner Nichols December 24, 1927, in Clinton. To this union five children were born. Opal and Paul spent many years together, farming and raised many fruits and vegetables to sell, as well as the many she canned for her growing family of four boys and one girl. Although making a living was tough at times, there was always plenty of food on the table for the family and to be shared with others. One of the things that her family remembers so well is that when she began to have trouble remembering things, the one thing that she never forgot to ask when you went to see her was "Are you hungry? Have you eaten?" Opal was so thankful for her family and they met often in her home to celebrate various occasions. Following Paul's death, Opal continued to live alone on the farm with her son, Dale, and family, living close by her. One of the Joys of her life was for those grandchildren to come to her house early in the morning and wait for the school bus to come by and pick them up. Many times after they left for school, the sons would stop by. This gave her a few more opportunities to feed them. She always looked forward to her family coming. The time came when she was no longer able to stay on the, farm. At this time she moved to be with another son, Frank, and his wife, Mary. Again she was surrounded by grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She lived in her own apartment with her son and wife on one side of her and her grandchildren on the other side. This allowed her to be independent for several more months under their loving watch-care. Finally, her health failed which made it necessary for her to go to the Westwood Nursing Home. As in any kind of change, there are always adjustments, as was true in the beginning of this change of homes. In one of her times of sharing with her sisters, she said, "I like it here. They are really good to me. I think I'm getting lazy. I never cook food anymore. I just let them bring it to me." Then she smiled her sweet smile. Opal died at the Westwood Care Center, where she had been a patient for the last six months. We, as a family, want to thank the staff at the Westwood Care Center for their loving care. She is survived by four sons, James Nichols and wife, Mary, John Nichols and wife, Helen, Frank Nichols and wife, Mary, and Dale Nichols and wife, Gayle, all of Clinton; one daughter, Pauline Silvers and husband, Noble, Warrensburg; 10 grandchildren, Debbie Nichols Nuss, Shirley Nichols Snorgrass, Steve Nichols, David Nichols, Darren Nichols, Mark Nichols, Tresha Nichols, Denise Boyle, Daniel Boyle, David Boyle; seven great-grandchildren, Crystal Vincent, Frank Vincent, Mary Snorgrass, Mathew Snorgrass, Blake Nichols, Ryan Boyle and Charidee Boyle: two brothers, John Bunch, Versailles, and Gene Bunch, Warsaw; three sisters. Anna Horn and Loraine Scott, both of Clinton, and Irene Jones, Fresno, California. She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul; her parents, William and Mary Bunch; three brothers, Leo Bunch, Ray Bunch and Russell Bunch; one sister, Winifred Jones and a daughter-in-law, Judy Kay Terry Nichols. Funeral services were held Monday, June 17, at the Consalus Chapel, Clinton. Burial was in the Parks Chapel Cemetery under the direction of Consalus Funeral Home, Clinton.

Clinton, MO - R. E. Nichols of 509 South Main street died at his home at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, following three weeks of illness. The first of May, Mr. Nichols was at the Fred Johnson hardware store, apparently as well as usual, when he was stricken by paralysis. Mr. Johnson took him home and there he remained unconscious and suffering acutely until last Friday, when he sank into rest and passed on the next afternoon without pain. Robert Edgar Nichols was born May 31, 1868, in Henry County, 5 miles west of Clinton on the ACL on the farm now owned by R. B. Stewart. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Nichols, who now live at 3206 West Ohio street, Clinton. There he lived until a young man. January 27, 1892, he married Miss Sarah Holt and they made their home in northeast Missouri, where one son, Jay was born to them. Less than a year later his wife died and he carried on as best he could, farming and caring for his small son. January 11, 1901, R. E. Nichols and Miss Mina Speagh of Memphis, Mo., were united in marriage at the home of her parents and for three years longer he made his home in northeast Missouri. One son, Ward, was given this union and in 1904 he moved with his family to Smith Center, Kans., which was their home for the next ten years. Mr. Nichols then bought the old Colt farm and home south of Clinton on highway 13, which was their residence for two years. Mr. Nichols next traded for a farm near Shawnee Mound and in 1916 moved to Clinton, buying the place on South Main street which has since been his home. As a young man he joined the Presbyterian church, but since coming to Clinton he, with his good wife and son, Ward, of the home have been regular attendants of the First M. E. church. Mr. Nichols is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Nichols; his widow; older son, Jay Nichols of Calhoun, and the latter's five daughters; Ward Nichols of the home and three brothers, Charlie Nichols, Wauneta, Nebr.; John Nichols, Grandview, Mo.; and Harry Nichols, four miles east of Clinton. R. E. Nichols was a fine man of high principles and worthy character, whose main interest was his farming and stock raising. Ward, always a good son, lived at home and took his father, who had not been well for the past ten years, back and forth to his farm and helped him in all ways possible. Mr. Nichols enjoyed his life outdoors and the days he could not get out scarcely seemed worthwhile, for he always took an active interest in the management of his land. In his last illness, his devoted wife and sons gave him every care and the many kindnesses of friends and neighbors made easier the weeks of suffering and ultimate loss. Rev. Arthur S. Olsen conducted the funeral services Monday at 2:30 p.m. at the Consalus and Peck Funeral Home. The body was laid for its long sleep in Englewood, borne hence by E. N. Hutcherson, Moad Davis, Clarence Shobe, Fred Johnson, Elmer Harding and W. E. Delozier.

Cap truly enjoyed the cattle operation. He spent many hours driving his pickup in the pastures, checking cows and calves.

NORMAN, Charles Edward
1935-2009
Englewood Cemetery (N), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Sep 14 2009 - Charles Edward Norman was born August 12, 1935, in Thebes, Illinois, the son of George Eagleton and Delia (Gibbons) Norman. He died Monday, August 17, 2009, at St. Joseph Hospital, Kansas City. For 74 years he walked among us, making this world a better place through the sharing of his gifts and his personality. On Monday, August 17, 2009, Chuck completed his journey on earth and went home to God. From his youth, Chuck loved the outdoors and sports. As a young man, he played semipro basketball and baseball. He was a lifelong fan of the Chicago Cubs and Bears, later adopting the Kansas City Royals and Chiefs as favorites, also. His son, Charles Jr., remembers hunting and fishing trips with his dad. Chuck also loved to travel and camp out, feeling as "at home" in his Barb's fifth wheel trailer as in their permanent home in Clinton. Some folk work at one job all their lives. Not Chuck. He wasn't afraid to tackle new professions. He worked as a baggage handler at the Grand Central Station in Chicago (which may account for his fascination with model railroading). He was a police officer in two northeast Illinois communities. He worked as a machinist for Farmall Equipment Manufacturing (later International Harvester). When that plant was shut down, Chuck went into business for himself, operating Ability Advisors, selling and servicing durable medical equipment. But it was in the area of volunteerism that Chuck made his greatest impact in the lives of others. In his earlier years in Illinois, he was a foster parent and the manager-coach of a Boys League baseball team. He talked a farmer into signing a long-term lease on an abandoned farm field for $1 a year. That abandoned farm field is now the site of a modern youth baseball complex. After Chuck and Barbara moved to Clinton, they became active members of the Northeast Baptist Church, faithfully supporting and participating in their church and Sunday School class. Chuck also became a member of the local chapter of RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program). Through this he also became involved in Heartland Share, a local food co-op, and it was here that he became known as "The Bread Man" and "The Bread Angel". What began as a modest donation of "day-old" bread products from a company in Sedalia to Heartland Share soon blossomed in a program that shared products also with F.A.I.T.H., the Henry County Detention Center, Camelot and with several local churches. Chuck made a difference for good in a lot of lives. Chuck was preceded in death by his parents, George and Delia (Gibbons) Norman; one daughter, Kathryn Marie Mussared; four sisters, Eva Roberts. Ethel Dodson, Evelyn Creal and Ileana Williams. and one brother, Shelby Norman. He is survived by his loving companion, Barbara Bolderson, of the home; one son, Charles Norman, Jr. and wife, Laurie, Waterloo, Iowa; five grandchildren, Joseph E. Mussared, Andrew D. Mussared, Ruth Peters and husband, Jim, and Dean Clark and husband. Robert; three great-grandchildren, Robert "Robbie" Clark, Dillon Clark and Miles Peters; along with a number of cousins and other relatives, many friends and his dog, Gus, and his cat, Angel. Funeral services were held at the Northeast Baptist Church, Thursday, August 20. Inurnment was in Englewood Cemetery, Clinton.

Jennings of Clinton, coroner of Henry County, who examined the body and found a transverse wound extending four inches across the right side of the neck and entirely separating the jugular vein, death coming from the loss of blood. Mr. Norris had used a two-bladed pocket knife, according to Dr. Jennings, and after inflicting the wound, had closed the knife and placed it in the right pocket of his trousers. The knife, pocket, and both hands were blood-stained. After eating breakfast that morning with his family, Mr. Norris had told his wife he was going to look at his rabbit traps. When he did not return within a reasonable time, his sons started to look for him. After investigating the facts in tthe case, Dr. Jennings did not deem an inquest would be necessary.

Urich Cemetery, Bogard Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Harold Edward Nuhn, eldest son of J. W. Nuhn and wife, died at 6:156 a.m. March 23, 1939, at the home of his parents. He was born June 12, 1920, in Wichita, Kans. About six years ago while the Nuhn family lived in Kansas City, Edward was stricken with infantile paralysis and for many months his life was despaired of by his loved ones, but through medical skill of physicians and nurses, in the hospital, he was spared to his parents. About five years ago he moved with his parents to Urich where they operate the Nuhn Drug Store, and although Edward never fully recovered into a strong healthy boy, he was able to be about and visit in the homes of his many friends who loved him for his happy, smiling face, sunny disposition, and for the cherry greetings he gave to young and old alike. He attended the Presbyterian Sunday School, as long as he was able. About six months ago a creeping paralysis set in. Although his parents had taken him to the hospital for examination and treatment a good many times each year since coming to Urich, this paralysis could not be checked. For some time when his mother came to the store to assist, she would lead Edward to and from her work, never too tired to listen to something amusing he had to tell, or, to some complaint he had to make then with heavy hearts, the parents realized that walking was too strenuous for their dear one, so they purchased a wheel chair for him. Several weeks ago his physician ordered him to bed as his heart was weak, and thus he passed peacefully on, a loving innocent boy, beloved by all who knew him, especially the writer and family, as so long as he was able to walk as far as our home, he never missed a day coming to see us, to give us and each one he met on the way, a cheery wave of his hand, and a happy smile, and thus we will always see him. Our hearts are not the only ones that are saddened by his going, for all who knew him, loved him, and will miss him so much. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church in Urich, Friday, March 24. Burial was in the Urich Cemetery.

NUTT, Martha Catherine LITTLETON
1825-1927
Englewood Cemetery (N), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. G. W. Nutt died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. J. Currier, 912 South Main street at 11 a.m. Sunday. She had been bedfast for the past two months. Her mind was a clear as a bell to the last, recalling the friends and facts of many days. She sang the old time church hymns and the lullabies in those last bedfast days in the clear soprano voice of hers, never missing a note. She enjoyed music and singing and many hours in later days would she sit crooning the songs of long ago. She was born June 22, 1825, in Wooster county, Maryland. When the writer interviewed her on her one hundredth birthday, she asked what nationality her parents were, and she proudly replied, Americans. In 1837, she started with her parents, brothers and sisters to Pickaway county, Ohio, which was their home for many years. They went by boat up the Chesapeake Bay, then took road wagons, drawn by double teams of horses or oxen, taking with them just their clothing and bedding. They walked most of the trip, as it was less expensive, but hired things carried. After a two weeks walk, they stopped in Pennsylvania where they remained until fall. Then they continued their journey to Ohio. July 7, 1844, Martha Catherine Littleton was married to George W. Nutt, in Fayette county, Ohio, and they lived happily together for 73 years. Mr. Nutt died ten years ago March 5th. Twelve children were given this union, five of whom survive as follows: J. R. Nutt, Portland, Ore.; Mrs. C. J. Currier, South Main street; Mrs. Nan Vance, Fredericksburg, Va.; Mrs. Belle Edwards, Orient, Iowa; Mrs. L. C. Organ, Kansas City. There are 60 grandchildren, 89 great-grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren, making a total of 170 descendants. She loved little children and it always delighted her to do for them and hear their innocent prattle. Mrs. Nutt was the most unusual woman the writer has ever met, no matter what her age. She was full of energy, alert and ever ready for the next job. Busy fingers were hers always. She liked life and the things it offered. Only after her eye sight failed and she could not see to use her fingers did she long for the last journey. Many people own quilts she pieced as her fingers were nimble. From the time she was 90 until her sight failed her, she had pieced 82 quilts of intricate patterns and quilted five. She considered the "cloud" of her life was her inability to work those last few years of her life, although she would quickly move about her room, "tidying" it the best she could until her sight failed. In this room she was surrounded by many things she loved, including a Seth Thomas clock that had kept time for her more than 70 years. Mrs. Nutt weighed scarcely a hundred pounds and yet she was always strong and well, as she knew scarcely a day's illness until the last two months. She always had a hearty appetite and relished her food, even on those last bedfast weeks. Her favorite dish was boiled cabbage an corn meal dumplings, and not like many old people, the food always tasted good. She knew the household arts, could spin and wove the blankets and much of the woolen cloth they used in the earlier days. When the writer last talked to her about the change of work women do, she gave this reply: "Good women have always worked and always will. When machines take the place of some of the things they have always done, a good woman will not be idle, but will find something else to occupy her mind and hands." Her maiden name was Martha Catherine Littleton. When a child she attended a pay school until she learned to read and spell, about six months altogether, then got the rest of education from books and papers. These were scarce, as well as institutions of learning in the days of her girlhood, but she never let a chance slip to learn and read everything possible. She always read and kept posted on questions of the day as long as she could see. She was a true patriot, the kind that uses every opportunity for their country. She did not fail during the last years of life for then came woman's chance to endorse her opinion by voting and Mrs. Nutt never stayed away from the polls, but studied up the question of both city and country, so she could vote intelligently. She voted the last time for the sale of the city light plant, being the oldest voter that has ever voted at Clinton. While she was modern in her ideas in many things, she did not approve of bobbed hair or the present scanty attire of women. Neither did she like airplanes or automobiles. She was converted at the age of 15 and united with the New Light church. After her marriage she united with the United Brethren, and after they came to Missouri, both of them came into the Methodist Church. She delighted to go and even after she got a little "hard of hearing," and it was difficult for her to catch all the preachers words, she liked the music and seeing the people she knew and loved. She broke her hip about ten years ago, which necessitated her using a crutch, and until the last two years she would attend church services and business downtown. The heavy traffic at the busy street corners did not disturb her as she was quick of thought and motion and always knew exactly what she was going to do. Henry county had been her home since 1882. Funeral at the First M. E. church on Tuesday. Burial beside her husband in Englewood. Her children were all at her bedside during her illness and her daughters were here when she died. Many of the other relatives came for the funeral.

NUTT, Maud INLOES
1892-1935
Englewood Cemetery (N), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Friends and relatives were bowed in sorrow when word was received Monday morning, April 29, 1935, that the spirit of Mrs. Floyd Nutt had, without warning, peacefully passed into Eternity. Mrs. Nutt had undergone a very serious mastoid operation at St. Mary's Hospital, performed by a skilled specialist, which proved successful and from which she was rapidly recovering when a blood clot on the brain brought instant death. This was a very severe shock to her loved ones for on the afternoon before, her husband and sons enjoyed a good visit with her and the morning of her death her husband returned to the hospital for his usual morning visit before work hours, leaving her at eight-thirty still improving and happy in the thought that she would return home to her family within two days. The nurse, leaving the sick room on a short errand, only went a few steps away and happened to look back and noticed the hall light for help for Mrs. Nutt had been turned on. She returned immediately only to find that death had claimed her patient during the few seconds she had been absent. Mrs. Floyd Nutt, who before her marriage was Miss Maude Inloes, was born June 24, 1892, eight miles east of Clinton at the old home place where her father now resides. She and her twin brother, Claud, who were inseparable childhood companions, entwined themselves dearly into the love-ties of this home, being the pride of their parents and a new love for their older brother and sister. Maud was a sweet, lovable, good girl, a favorite among her school mates and friends, always thinking of others and her greatest desire was to do something to bring happiness to some one. These characteristics were prevalent throughout her life as many times when she should have saved her strength, she helped those who were in trouble or gave wise counsel to those who sought it. She gave her heart to the Master when a little girl and was first a member of Hutcherson's Chapel at Alberta. On moving to Clinton she placed her membership in the First M. E. church and several years ago when the family moved to Overland Park, Kans., where there was no church of her preference she and her husband together with the boys, joined the Presbyterian church of which she was a member at the time of her passing and where she had faithfully worked until her frail health compelled her absence. December 7, 1912, she was united in marriage to Floyd C. Nutt. To this home four sons were given, two dying in infancy. Those who are left to comfort a bereaved father are Jams Francis and Floyd Edward. The home life has been beautiful with her loving companion and two sons, the father and mother giving their best for each other and their boys and the boys giving their best in return. For a number of years she has endured much suffering but has been patient and kind always willing to bear her burdens uncomplainingly and to give a radiant smile to those about her. Her husband and children were uppermost in her thoughts although she gave a wealth of love to all her relatives. In writing home she would urge her brother and sister not to worry and close with a special message to her aged father whom she loved dearly that she would soon be all right again. Her life is not measured by the number of years but how well she lived them and is a golden memory to those who remain. She leaves her devoted husband, who has ever been untiring in his efforts to restore her health; her two sons, Jas. and Floyd; her aged father, a twin brother, Claud, and an only sister, Mrs. Harry Jones, also many other relatives and innumerable friends. Her beloved mother preceded her in death twelve years ago and her other brother, Allie, three years ago. The funeral was held at the Presbyterian Church on Wednesday morning where Rev. Waters read words of comfort from the Bible and offered a consoling prayer to the bereaved family and a large number of friends who morn with them. The body was brought to Clinton by Consalus and Peck funeral directors, followed by relatives and friends and taken to the First M. E. Church where Rev. Arthur Olsen spoke worlds of comfort in a beautiful way to the family and a large number of friends in her old home church. She was tenderly laid to rest in Englewood beside her infant sons beneath a wealth of flowers.
