PADFIELD, Amanda H. FIKE
1842-1937
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. Amanda H. Padfield, who had been confined to her bed just a week, passed to her Heavenly Home at 4 a.m. Monday from the Mrs. A. C. Loudermilk home, 324 North Main street. Mrs. Padfield, whose blindness had been complete the past 15 years, had every care and attention that her devoted daughters, Mrs. Loudermilk and Mrs. John Biggs, could give. Since September 1, 1935, when she came to make her home in Clinton, her daughter, Mrs. Loudermilk, had eased her affliction and made her days as cheerful and bright as true filial love could. Amanda H. Fike was born at Mascoutah, Ill., March 7, 1842. She was reared and married at Mascoutah, where, as a girl, she was taught by the old time itinerant school masters and attended the singing schools of a bygone generation. She became a member of the Northern Presbyterian church as a girl, and was always comforted and strengthened by her belief in things eternal, especially was this evident when the curtain of blindness shut her from the outside world and the real beauty of her spirit was superior to her affliction. Amanda Fike and James H. Padfield were united in marriage August 28, 1862, and lived in Illinois, until the close of the Civil War, when they came to Missouri to establish their home, settling on what is now known as the Gregory farm near Lewis Station. Mr. Padfield bought the farm at $5 per acre from Mr. Woods, who had homesteaded the land. Their daughter, Bertha, now Mrs. Biggs of Clinton, was born in Illinois and their other two children, Corrington, the only son, deceased in March, 1922, and Mabel, now Mrs. Loudermilk, were born in Missouri. Mrs. Biggs and Mrs. Loudermilk survive their mother, also two grandsons, Murhl Padfield of Independence, Colo., and Rolla Loudermilk of Clinton and one great grandson, Arthur Clinton Loudermilk of Clinton. In 1885, Mr. and Mrs. Padfield and family moved to a farm 1 1/2 miles northeast of Clinton on highway 52, and in 1890 came to Clinton to educate their children. Here they lived for 13 years returning in 1903 to their farm where they lived until March 1923, when they broke up housekeeping as years were beginning to take their toll of strength and vigor. They went to make their home with their daughters, Mrs. Loudermilk on her farm a mile north of town on highway 13, and Mrs. John Biggs of Clinton. In October of that year to her sorrow of fading sight was added the grief of parting from her husband, whose devotion to his wife had more than 60 years brightened her pathway. A year ago last September Mrs. Loudermilk brought her mother to Clinton, the residence at 324 North Main street becoming their home. Mrs. Padfield was always a woman whose home was her chief and greatest interest. She was an excellent cook, a perfect housekeeper, an expert needlewoman, most of whose stitches were taken not in fine embroidery or on fancy work but in mending garments that preserved them for family use. Her chickens and garden she tended with care, and taught her children thrift and frugality and the wholesomeness of industry as cardinal virtues, that proved assets in their success in life. She was always contented, never complaining, but cheerfully accepting her cross and interested in the neighbors who came to visit her. She was lavish in her appreciation of little kindnesses extended her, took a part in all conversations and fully enjoyed the many friends who were so generous with their time and courtesies. The funeral services were conducted Tuesday at the First M. E. church, according to her request. The body was laid to rest in Englewood.

She was first on the south side of the square next door to the present Karbe Store and two years ago moved to her present location. She was a member of the Franklin Street Methodist Church, also an Eastern Star although she had never moved her membership to the Clinton chapter. She was a capable business woman, honest, reliable, modest and quiet. Hers was a simple life, gentle and kind and brimming over with appreciation for the smallest kindness done for her by any friend or acquaintance. She faced life bravely and when she sprained her ankle three years ago kept on at her work as determinedly as lessened strength would allow. She was blessed during all her years in Clinton with the constant friendship of Mrs. Hoover who had been her business manager and who Saturday completed the sale of the Hat Shop to Mrs. Willa Saveland, which was a great burden off Miss Pardue's mind. She became worse last Thursday, since when she had been unable to take any nourishment and the end was anticipated at any time as her doctor gave them no encouragement. She leaves an only niece, Mrs. Evans, and an only nephew, J. D. Pardue, both of Clarksville, Tenn., who were wired for instructions. Funeral services were conducted at the Consalus & Peck Funeral Home on Wednesday. The body was laid to rest in Englewood.

1860-1932
Carpenter Cemetery, Chilhowee, Johnson Co, MO
Clinton, Henry Co, MO - G. L. Park's ship of life drifted out upon the sea of Death for its last voyage, November 23rd, after an illness which encompassed a year's time at his home near Norris. Mr. Park had been in the Menorah hospital in Kansas City for five weeks, and when he was brought home six weeks ago, hopes for recovery were held, because of his seeming improvement. General Lafayette Park was born in Cock County, Tennessee, April 9, 1860, and moved with his parents to Shelbyville, Ind., when he was four years old. Here they resided five years, then came to Jackson County, near Lees Summit, where Mr. Park grew to manhood, with fine ideals instilled in his mind and heart by his parents. It was in that community he met the sweetheart who became his wife, Anna Lucinda Gault, and they were married April 10, 1889. In October of that same year, they came to Henry County, to the place a mile and a half north of Norris which had remained their home--a place of warmth and brightness, with happy, wholesome life, blessed with four children. Mr, and Mrs. Park worked together--work that was intelligently directed to constructive and cumulative purposes, and were successful. Their farm, at first with few acres, increased until now it is a large one. The husband knew well how to make it produce the very best. In addition to his tilling and sowing of the soil, he was an extensive cattleman and hog raiser for a number of years. They mingled with the social life of the community, working toward its betterment. Friends were always welcome in the home. Mr. Park was never one to go about with a serious mien, and his disposition was one of brightness. Proof of his popularity was the great number of visitors who came to see him while he was ill. A man of tireless energy and industry he did with his might all that came his way. The latter six years of his life he had done little strenuous work. In his home he found rest and comfort and it was ever this delight to have his children and grandchildren about him Mr. Park had been a member of various Masonic organizations, which included the Blue Lodge, Royal Arch, the Scottish Rite and the Shrine. Besides his beloved companion, Mr. Park leaves the children, James A. Park, Mrs. L. R. Albin, G. L. Park, Jr., and Mrs. R. E. Butcher, all of whom reside near the parental home; 16 grandchildren and one great grandchild. A large crowd was present to give last tribute to the man who had meant so much as a generous neighbor, sympathizing friend and genial companion. Funeral services were conducted at the M. E. church, South, in Norris, by Rev. Homer DeLozier, pastor of the Baptist church at Chilhowee. The pallbearers were his nephews, Charles Thurston, Willis Pettigrew, and grandsons, Harry Park, Lyle Albin, Homer Duncan, and Russell Granger. The following granddaughters served as flower girls: Mrs. Russel Granger, Wilma Ruth Albin, Floy Virginia Park, Leona Mae Butcher, Mary Ann Albin, Beulah Jane Park and Dorothy Belle Butcher.

PARK, Mary J.
1841-1904
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Mar 26 1904 - Never have the people of Brownington been so shocked as by the accident that befell Mrs. A. Q. Park last Saturday. Mrs. Parks was the wife of Abner Q. Park, a highly respected and prosperous farmer living about four miles southeast of town and near Park Grove for many years. Mrs. Park was well known to the people of this town, having delivered butter for many years. Last Saturday, she had delivered her butter as usual and was just returning home, driving her horse, Brown, to a cart. The local freight had just come into town and sidetracked for the 1:17 passenger train. As Mrs. Park neared the train, the horse seemed restless. Mrs. Park spoke to the horse and continued on her way, still watching the freight. As she neared the railroad crossing just south of the depot, the 1:17 passenger train came around the curve. Mrs. Park evidently had not heart it whistle, as she still looked north watching the freight. She was just squarely on the railroad crossing when the passenger train struck her, throwing her about 65 feet, killing her instantly, crushing the back of her head and otherwise injuring her; the horse had its back broken and had to be shot; the cart was completely demolished, its wheels being carried as far as the depot, on the cow catcher. The body of the hapless victim was removed to the home of Mrs. Rogers and word was sent to the aged husband, who by this blow is left entirely alone, having lost their son James about six months ago and from the shock of his death they had never recovered. Mrs. James Park arrived Sunday in time to attend the funeral at the Christian Church.

He also drew the plan of the building and built the furniture in it, and the altar at the Deepwater Presbyterian church was also made by him.

Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton, MO, June 1940 - Accidental Shot Fatal To Ray Parker - Blairstown Young Man Killed Near Home Tuesday Morning after Hunting Crows with Shot Gun - W. C. Merrill Finds Body - No Inquest Held - Ray Parker, two miles west of Blairstown, was accidentally killed Tuesday morning when returning to his home after hunting crows. He was found about 1:00 p.m. lying on his back, his arms outstretched near a stump from which he had apparently fallen as he attempted to climb the woven wire fence near the farm of a neighbor, W. C. Merrill. The gun was on the opposite side of the fence, the barrel pointing toward the body with the left chamber discharged. The shot had entered Parker's left side near the heart. Death was instantaneous, according to Dr. S. B. Hughes, coroner, who viewed the body, deeming no inquest necessary. Scratches on the gun and rust knocked from the wire fence gave evidence the gun had fallen from Parker's hands. According to the coroner, the young man had been dead several hours when found by Mr. Merrill, who had gone in search of him. Mrs. Merrill had gone to the Parker home about 11:00 a.m. to get Ray to help Mr. Merrill with the brooder house, to be told he had gone crow hunting. Mrs. Parker said she would send her son to the Merrill's as soon as he returned. When he did not come back Mrs. Parker became alarmed and Mr. Merrill went in search of his neighbor, soon finding the dead body. He summoned help and notified County Coroner, Dr. S. B. Hughes, and Sheriff Dalton Davis, who went at once to the scene accompanied by Sheriff Davis' assistant, Harry Gumm; prosecuting attorney, Chas Hassett and circuit clerk, John Wall. Ray Parker and Mr. Merrill were the closest of friends, as Ray had proven such a good neighbor since moving to an adjoining farm. Both were interested in all plant and animal life, so they shared work and ideas, often discussing methods of value to each. Ray had ever been interested in raising livestock and had a fine bunch of young Whiteface calves at the time of his accidental death. His farm was in order and the planting ahead of many of his neighbors. Milton Ray Parker was born near Alberta, six miles east of Clinton, March 31, 1915. From the Alberta neighborhood the Parker family changed residence to west of Calhoun and from there in February, 1939, moved to the Blairstown community, going this spring to the farm, 1 1/2 miles west of Blairstown, where deceased and his mother, Mrs. Annie S. Parker, made their home, and where the young man had planted all his kaffir and all but ten acres of his corn for this year; had sowed a field of oats, also tended his fall crops. He had been hunting crows as they had been preying on their chickens. The past five or six years he and his mother had been close companions, he shouldering the family cares. He is survived by his mother of the home; his father, A. L. Parker, of near Ft. Lyon, Mo., three sisters, Mrs. Tony Cleek, near Blairstown, Mrs. Charles Powers, Shawnee Mound, and Mrs. Neal Hartle, North Fourth Street, Clinton; also two brothers, Melvin Parker, Council Bluffs, Iowa, and Clyde Parker, Pierce, Idaho.

PARKER, Ray Harden
1898-1940
Teays Chapel Cemetery, Bear Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton, MO, November 1940 - Ray Parker, son of former City Police Judge, Frank C. Parker, of Clinton, came to a sad death about 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, November 26, by a self inflicted rifle shot in his left temple. He had not been well, and earlier that morning had been to the office of Dr. S. B. Hughes for medicine then returned to the home of his father where he and his bride of a few months were making their home until their own distinctive stone house on South Water Street was completed. About 11:00 a.m., Mr. Parker told his wife that he was going to his blacksmith shop on Center Street and when at 12:30 he had not returned his brother, Elliott Parker, went to the shop to tell him to come to dinner. He arrived to find the front door locked but looking through a window he saw the body of his brother lying near the back of the shop. He hurried to get the sheriff, who summoned the coroner, and on their return found the back door unlocked and entered there. Ray Harden Parker, eldest son of the 11 children of Judge Frank Parker and his wife, the late Ollie Ann Rogers Parker, whose death occurred September 5, 1938, was born July 23 1898, near Teays Chapel and was a graduate of Antioch School. The family moved to Clinton in 1921 where he had since made his home and had established himself in business, being an expert in iron work and a skilled mechanic in all types of blacksmithing. The handsome iron work at the courthouse is a sample of his craftsmanship and he also did much work on the new cemetery fence, still under construction. His abilities also extended to architectural and cement lines, and so exact and complete was his knowledge of them that he designed and had done practically all the work on the two story rock house on South Water Street that was to have been his home and while not quite complete, in construction it is one of the most distinctive residences in Clinton. Miss Bernice Vansant, daughter of Frank Vansant, and the late Susan Miller Vansant, well known South Henry County residents, had become his bride September 2, 1940. Mr. Parker was a former member of the Masonic and Elks lodges, a man who held the respect of his fellow citizens and the full love and sympathy of his family and friends. A quiet man, whose tastes were simple and his ambitions worthy, he leaves to mourn his death his stricken widow and father, one sister, Mrs. Goldie Parks, of Appleton City and six brothers, Elliot of the home; Hal R. and O. V. of Clinton; Clay E. Parker of Noel, Howard F. Parker of Cassville, and Woodrow Parker of Pasadena, Calif. Funeral services will be held at Teays Chapel Friday afternoon (subject to change).

PARKER, Vina TURNER
abt 1861-1935
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton, MO, October 1935 - Mrs. W. H. Parker Dead - The spirit of Mrs. W. H. Parker, 11 East Elm street, left its earthly abode at 7:40 Thursday morning, October 3, bringing to an end many years of failing heath which was climaxed with a brief but intense illness. Mrs. Parker had been a semi-invalid since 1906 when a beloved son, Elbert, was lost at sea. Her husband had given her tender care through all her years of illness with a companionship that was beautiful in its willingness and devotion. April 26 of this year Mr. Parker died suddenly, and with his passing her desire to live seemed to leave. She was bedfast only a few days before her death and became much worse about 5 p.m. the preceding Monday. A brother, John Turner, died in March of this year, taking the last of her family. She had been cared for since Mr. Parker's death by a niece, Mrs. Mamie Walrath, as rheumatism and heart trouble made it difficult for her to get about. Vina Turner was born 74 years ago near Leesville, and here grew to young womanhood. She and W. H. Parker were joined in marriage, March 30, 1880, and more than 55 years of devoted companionship was theirs. They lived on a farm the first years of their marriage, then came to Clinton about 40 years ago, where Mr. Parker ran a dairy wagon, was employed in the Messick barns, raised fine horses, worked at the ice plant, and in his sunset years cared for the Jersey cows which supplied milk for the butter they sold, also kept a carefully tended vegetable garden. Mrs. Parker was an excellent homemaker and a superb cook and delighted in keeping her home meticulously neat and clean and well managed, although she was not able to do all the work herself. She and her husband were very close to each other, and her sons afforded her great joy and pride. Surviving Mrs. Parker are her two sons, Walter of New Jersey, who came for the funeral, and Rolla of Los Angeles. Mrs. Parker's church membership was with the Christian Church and she lived a consistent Christian life, although health prevented her from attending church services. The funeral was conducted at the Christian Church Sunday afternoon. Burial was in Englewood.

PARKER, Willis H.
1857-1935
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Clinton, MO, May 1935 - The death angel came to the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Parker on East Elm street at 12:15 Friday morning, April 26, and parted companions of more than 55 years when W. H. Parker answered the last summons and entered eternity. He had not been well and had suffered with heart trouble for some weeks but it was not considered serious because Mrs. Parker had been in real poor health for some years. Thursday night she arose for medicine, when she heard him call that he was ill. She gave him medicine, but they had no telephone and it was some time before she could arouse neighbors as she was scarcely able to get out of the house. Death came before assistance arrived. W. H. Parker was born September 17, 1857, near Roseland. His parents died when he was quite young and he was raised by relatives. He was married to Vina Turner, March 30, 1880 and their union has been one of sweet companionship and true devotion to each other. They founded their home with little more than love, but with frugal living they prospered and became owners of several houses and a farm. During the time of financial stress the past few years, they have generously aided many of their friends who found the financial road too rough. They were given three sons, Elbert, Walter and Rolla. Elbert was lost at sea in 1906 and his body has never been recovered, and since then Mrs. Parker has been a semi-invalid. Her husband gave her every care since her health failed, assisted in the housework which she was unable to do alone, and watched her carefully and tenderly that she might regain some of her health. They always had something to do together, something to accomplish, and even the last few years when she was able to do but little work, he milked his Jersey cows and she made butter which they sold. The first 15 years of their marriage was on a farm, then they came to Clinton where they lived about 40 years. He ran a dairy wagon for awhile, and was employed in the Messick barns. He liked livestock, especially good horses, and owned a number of fine, highly bred horses. At one time he was also employed by the ice plant. The Parker garden was always remarkable for its variety and earliness, and this year his garden is one of the first, far ahead of the others, for it was the pride of his heart that he had fresh vegetables from his garden the earliest of anyone. He loved flowers and many fragrant and gaily colored blossoms brightened the front year and parking. Many years ago Mr. Parker joined the Christian Church and lived a consistently good Christian life thereafter. Mr. Parker is the last of his family. His wife survives with their two sons, Rolla of Los Angeles, and Walter of New York, who came for the funeral. Services were Monday at the home. Burial was in Englewood.

Hughes, was gone on his vacation, Dr. Peelor reported the suicide to the sheriff and prosecuting attorney, who, upon hearing the facts, determined that a coroner's inquest would be unnecessary.

Here is was reared and became a member of the Stone's Mission Baptist church and attended until it was destroyed by fire in 1928. He was united in marriage to Miss Lorene Witherspoon about 1928, and to this union were born three children who survive: Sherman 7, Birdie Lenore 5 and Marcia Dee 3, in addition to his wife and his parents. Mr. Parks purchased a farm about two years after his marriage in the Mound springs neighborhood where they moved and prospered. He was a good farmer and stockman and business manager.

James A. Parks Admitted To The Bar Eternal - Family and friends of James A. Parks, who had been watching with deepest anxiety his balance between life and death the past two weeks, bowed before the inevitable at 6:45 a.m. Monday, September 5, and resigned him to his last long sleep. He had not been well since April of this year, but in June started with Mrs. Parks for a visit to their daughter in Belmont, Mass. Upon reaching St. Louis while en route he entered Barnes Hospital, where two days later he underwent an operation. After a few weeks in the hospital, he returned to his home hoping to regain his health. There many friends visited him and clients came with their business and legal matters and he had even been to the polls to cast his last vote in the Democratic primary August 2. James A. Parks was one of Missouri's most prominent lawyers. At the time of his death and some years prior thereto he was a member of the State Bar Advisory Committee, to which position he was appointed by the Supreme Court of Missouri, and which was a signal honor. Serving with him were: Boyle G. Clark, General chairman, of Columbia; J. C. Grover of Kansas City, (who both visited him last week); J. D. James of Joplin and Grover C. Sibley of St. Louis. This committee passes on the eligibility of practicing lawyers and debars them for illegal or unethical practice, if occasion arises. He was a member of the Board of Regents of Central Missouri State Teachers College at Warrensburg, to which position he was appointed by Governor Stark in 1937, and which was but another acknowledgment of his worth and ability. A member of the Missouri Bar Association since September 10, 1906, Mr. Parks entered upon the active practice of law with his father, Peyton A. Parks, under the firm name of Parks & Son. In the spring of 1906, he had graduated and received his law degree from the University of Missouri at Columbia, having his A. B. degree from Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Va. With the death of his beloved and influential father in 1922, their firm was dissolved. Since then Mr. Parks officed alone, with an extensive practice, not only at the local bar, but throughout the state. Studious and industrious, highly educated and practical, honest and conscientious, learned and experienced in law and in business, multitudes of people came to him with their affairs. Not alone those who had law suits to try or defend, but likewise those with business problems, seeking advice and assistance. He was honest and trustworthy. None ever erred in placing their confidence in Mr. Parks. To clients he gave his best thought study and effort, together with a frank disclosure of the merits of their cause. Often has he been heard to remark, "I can't always tell a client what he would like to hear. I must tell him the truth. I must tell him the law, whether it is against him or in his favor." Mr. Parks exemplified the highest ideals and traditions of the law, loyal to his client, true to their cause, fair and considerate of opposing counsel, frank and honest with the courts before whom he practiced, he was recognized by bench and bar as an outstanding member of the legal profession. Not only was Mr. Parks prominent in legal circles, but he took an active part in civic, social and political affairs. He was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and was never too busy to give his time to the work of the church. He was an active member of the B.P.O.E. and a Past Exalted Ruler of the lodge. He was one of the organizers of the Clem P. Dickinson post of the American Legion, having served at Camp Pike, Ark., during the World War, taking pride in his service to his country as part of his patriotic privilege. Since, he had been active in Legion affairs and served as historian for the local Post. He had also been a valued member of the Masonic order and Woodman lodge. Mr. Parks was a Democrat and always took an active part in affairs political. He had spoken in most every school house and public meeting place in the county, at one time or another, supporting his party and urging its success. He had always been interested in education and in addition to the college board upon which he was serving at the time of his death, he served as member of the School Board of the Clinton School District from 1919 to 1920 filling out the unexpired term of Clem P. Dickinson. In 1920 he was elected to the board until 1923 when he declined re-election but since had served them as attorney. In all worthwhile civic affairs, the advice and cooperation of Mr. Parks could be counted upon, and in many instances in times past, through his aid, defeat had turned to victory. Often did he serve a poor client without remuneration if he thought the cause to be right. Helpful ever to the elderly and afflicted. Generous with his information to the community when important decisions in law were involved. Yet one of his truest claims to greatness is measured by the high regard his colored servants had for him, for a man's servant sees him at his best and worst--the actual man, and knows him as he is. So old Joe Nash, ill now himself, yet faithful to three generations of the Parks family, Ben Swindell and Maggie Watson, all colored, who had worked for him at office and home, knew and loved him, respected and admired him, guarded and watched the interests of "Mr. Jim" and suffer in his passing. James A. Parks was active in the reorganization of the Henry County Building and Loan Association; he stood for community growth; he served his political party as county chairman, but as was the custom of his distinguished father, steadily refused elective office; the power of his fearless judgment and courage coupled with outspoken honesty wielded an influence as rare and significant as it was valued by innumerable people. Indeed his powers of mind and gift of leadership marked him among men as the mighty oak of the forest towers above lesser growth--a man whom an entire county mourns as one of its finest, most useful and needed citizens. James Allen Parks was born Oct. 13, 1883, in Clinton, the only son of Peyton A. Parks and Mary E. Gathwright. His name combined those of both grandparents, honored pioneer settlers, James and Mary Allen Parks. His paternal great-grandfather had laid out and founded the city of Clinton, and thru generations he and his forebears have been associated with prominent members of the Missouri, Kentucky and Virginia bars. Oct. 24, 1911, Mr. Parks and Miss Elizabeth Wallis were married. One daughter was given them, Mrs. Ralph Nattinger now of Belmont, Mass., who with her mother survive. Their companionship and mutual gifts of mind brought happiness and the void his passing leaves is known but to those who loved him best. His was a genial, humor-loving mind and his quick wit and love of people made him rare company, and brought friends to him by the legion. As Mr. Parks senior had often done, so his son found relaxation from the arduous duties and close application in his office at the club lake where he still owned the same cabin and enjoyed a bit of fishing and rest in the open; or yearly motor trips with his wife and daughter. Having had the most robust health, never knowing illness since early childhood, he worked with indefatigable energy, never sparing himself and had intolerance for illness even when it reached him in the last months. Such a man he was and so he died, with force seemingly in his passing--and leaving in his going a vast vacant space which family, fellow members of the bar, friends or slight acquaintances see and wonder who or how it can be filled. The funeral services were conducted Wednesday at the Franklin Street Methodist Church.

Clinton Missouri, Jun 25 1904 - Judge James Parks has passed away. Surrounded by relatives and loyal friends, the link that held life to earth was broken and his spirit fled to its reward on the evening of Friday, June 17. Judge James Parks, oldest son of Peyton and Almira Parks, was born in Lincoln County, Kentucky, October 28, 1827 and died at his home in Clinton at 7:20 p.m. June 17, 1904, aged 76. When he was an infant his parents moved to Cooper County and settled near Pisgah. In 1874, they moved to Henry County. Judge Parks has lived in Clinton since 1862, moving here from his farm in North Tebo August 31 of that year. He married on Christmas Eve in 1850, Mary J. Allen, daughter of Robert Allen and one of the strong men and early settlers of Henry County. Mrs. Parks died July 9, 1901. They had six children - Mrs. A. M. Fulkerson, Mrs. J. M. Harris, Peyton A. Parks, Mrs. C. C. Dickerson, Mrs. Sue Y. Milton and Anna Parks, all living and present at the bedside of their father, save the youngest Miss Anna who died in 1886. Judge Parks was assessor by appointment and assessed Henry County in 1860. He was circuit clerk from 1863 to 1867 and although removed by Governor Fletcher, he was reappointed by Judge Emerson, the circuit judge and of opposite political faith. He was probate judge of Henry County 20 years, from 1879 to 1899, retiring on account of advancing years. At the expiration of his office as circuit clerk, January 1, 1867, he became a member of the law firm of R. Allen and Co., which on the retirement of Robert Allen, became the firm of Parks, Thornton and Gantt, composed of Judge Parks, William T. Thornton, now ex-Governor of New Mexico, and Judge James B. Gantt, now of the Supreme Court of Missouri. This firm was dissolved by the removal of Judge Gantt to Sedalia and the election of Judge Parks to the probate judgeship. In 1880, upon the admission of his son Peyton to the bar, the firm became James Parks and Son, until by reason of failing health, Judge Parks retired from business in 1901. Prior to the civil War, he was a Whig in politics and upon the death of the Whig party, he became a Democrat and has been one of the leading mean in the party since the war. With Judge Gantt, he led the fight against the bonding of Henry County for railroad purposes; and was one of the bondsmen of the county when the test case was taken to the U.S. Supreme Court. All his lands, with that of the other bondsmen, were advertised to sell under the Nicolay judgment given by the Court on this test case but the debt was paid by the county and the county and the securities protected. Fraternally, he was a Royal Arch Mason. In his character and personality, Judge Parks combined many rare qualities. His official life was one of industry, efficiency and unswerving integrity. His hold upon the confidence and affection of the people of Henry County was as nearly absolute as any man may ever hope to obtain. He gave the office of probate judge an unwonted value and dignity. His work as an official and his conduct as a citizen were such as to confer great and lasting benefit upon the people of Henry County and to be forever a source of just pride in in his children and in the many who bear his name. His constant kindness and unfailing courtesy and quality of mind and spirit lost none of its freshness with advancing years and physical suffering but retained much of youthful elasticity and was ever responsive to the ideas and feelings of tohers. His mind was open to the humorous and the kindly side of nature and to what was beautiful and good. He always stood for the right. Services at the home on South Second Street, Sunday morning at 11.

Drakes Chapel Cemetery, Deer Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. M. D. Parks died her home two miles northwest of Lewis Station at 3 a. m. Friday, July 3, 1937. Though Mrs. Parks had suffered from declining health the past half year, her death was a sudden blow to her kinsmen and friends as she was well as usual until Monday of last week. Even then she did not seem seriously ill until Wednesday, when she could not arise from her bed. Jennie Garrett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Garrett, pioneer Henry countians, was born September 21, 1856, in Henry County. She was educated and grew to womanhood in this county, and December 14, 1876, was united in marriage to Milton D. Parks by Rev. J. P. Gibson. Their home was given no children, but Mrs. Parks loved and mothered her nieces and nephews almost as children of her own would have been. They were all devoted to her and gave her many pleasant hours. As a school teacher, Mrs. Parks showed a rare ability and wielded a far-reaching and lasting influence over a wide circle of pupils who became sincere friends. She began teaching in 1878, continuing every year in this work for 23 years. Among her schools where she gave pleasant, satisfactory service were Highland, Plum Grove, Merritt, and Lewis, also Adair, Okla. The last several years she has been an increased blessing to her husband for his eyesight failed and the became his eyes in daily life. He plans to remain on the farm, with someone to look after his wants, as he has learned to find his way about the place without assistance, while a new home would be confusing and unfamiliar. Mrs. Parks became a member of the M. E. Church, South, before 1889. Until her health failed, she rarely missed a service at Drakes Chapel, where she was one of the most active and devoted members. Surviving Mrs. Parks is only her husband, also a number of nieces and nephews. Funeral services at the Parks home on Sunday. Burial was at Drakes Chapel.

PARKS, Mary Elizabeth GATHRIGHT
1851-1931
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. Peyton Parks Dead - Mother of Jas. A. Parks Passes Away Suddenly At Her Home - Mrs. Peyton A. Parks went into her garden last Saturday morning, while the dew was still on the roses, and picked her choicest blossoms for a friend. She then went into the house, took in the morning paper, and put the coffee on the stove in preparation for breakfast. Her son, James A. Parks, was the only one at home, and he heard her moving about at 7 o'clock. Then he dressed and went down to the breakfast room. As she did not come in, he went into the kitchen and found her lifeless body lying on the kitchen table. Her neighbor, Mrs. J. W. Parks, told him she had seen her but a short time before gathering flowers in the garden, which they found ready to be sent to a friend. Her journey into Eternity was quietly made, with no sad farewells. The beauty of her thoughts and life are portrayed in the song above, ("In The Garden") for it was in the Garden that she always found Him. She would tarry there because she felt closest to the Father when she was among the flowers. Mary E. Gathright was born in Callaway county, Mo., December 26, 1851. Her parents moved to Montrose, where she later taught in the Montrose school. It was there she met Peyton A. Parks, who was principal and also teacher. He was admitted to the bar a year before their marriage, which was September 21, 1882. Their friendship had ripened into love. When he died September 26, 1922, she was the same sweetheart she had been when he married her. Although crushed by his going on the long journey first, she busied herself with her home and found many things to do for her son, his wife, and their daughter, Frances, who gave up their home and moved in with her so that she would not be alone. Her hands and heart were never idle. She loved people and her neighbors, and was always ready to give a happy, friendly greeting, and the word of cheer so needed to neighbors and friends. However, during her sorrow, she did not make many new friendships, for she went away from her neighborhood but seldom. However, she kept up with her reading, and was as mentally alert the day she died as she was in young womanhood. Her husband being the leading attorney of Henry county for many years, and outstanding in politics, in Missouri, made her meet many worthwhile persons in the state and most of them had been entertained in her home. Worldly position and honor left her sweet and as humble as a child, always ready with tender, ministering hands for those in need. She was converted in her girlhood, and united with the Baptist church, and she gave herself many years to its work. Before the death of her husband, it was Mrs. Parks who always called on strangers who had moved into the city, and she who saw that they became acquainted with people who would make them most happy. After her husband's conversion, it gave her great joy to have him teach the large Bible class at the Baptist church. She and Mr. Parks were liberal contributors to the new Baptist church building. The past week, she had called on many friends, and had seemed especially well, so her death came as a shock. Mrs. James A. Parks was in Marshfield visiting at the time, and the only grandchild, Miss Frances Parks, was in Columbia, where she is attending the University of Missouri. One brother survives, Walter Gathright, of San Diego, Calif. The funeral was conducted at her late home, Monday afternoon. The burial was in Englewood cemetery by the side of her husband.

Parks Chapel Cemetery, Leesville Twp, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. Mary H. Parks Died - At her home on North Fourth Street, Friday, April 28th, at 3:30 p.m. she had been ill the past four years, and bedfast and helpless the three weeks previous to death. Her sister, Mrs. W. H. Parker, has not been well, and was unable to care for Mrs. Parks, so for the past year and a half, Mr. and Mrs. Otto McCurley have given the deceased care equal to that of a son and daughter. They lived on her farm 13 years previous to moving to her home, and during the time they have been with here, have left nothing undone to make her happy, contented and comfortable. Mary H. Turner was born in Leesville township, February 28, 1856, where she grew to young womanhood, and when she was 17 years old, on May 4th was united in marriage to John L. Parks. Theirs was a happy companionship until he died October 3, 1913. She stayed on the farm awhile, then lived with Mrs. Parker, but as she enjoyed a home of her own, purchased the North Fourth street property, so she could be in Clinton near her sister and near her church. This had been her home since. Mrs. Parks was converted before her marriage and had united with the Christian church. She was a devout Christian, her delight being to heed the admonitions and instructions given by the Savior. She was a regular attendant at church, and her hands were ever ready to do the nearest tasks, and give tender ministry to anyone in need. Mrs. Parks was a meticulous housekeeper and thoroughly enjoyed keeping her home. It was fortunate that Mrs. McCurley was as good a housekeeper as Mrs. Parks, and the latter was to her last day, surrounded with cleanliness, order and sunshine. The deceased was devoted to her sister, Mrs. Parker, who was unable to get out of the house often, and though she herself was in ill health, she was able to walk and visit Mrs. Parker frequently and dined with her often. They always observed birthdays, holidays and important events, together, so on Mrs. Parker will hardest fall the death of her sister. She also leaves one brother, John Turner who lives on South Main street, in Fairview addition. The long time neighbors and friends acted as pall bearers, and tenderly laid Mrs. Parks body to rest by the side of her late husband in Parks Chapel Cemetery.

PARKS, Peyton
1800-1880
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Henry County Democrat, Nov 1880 - Peyton Parks Biographical Sketch of the Venerable Deceased - His Official Duties as Assessor and County Seat Commissioner Died - At his home, with his son, Y. P. Parks, near Calhoun, Henry county, Mo., on Monday morning, Nov. 15th, 1880 of general debility, Mr. Peyton Parks, aged 80 years. Mr. Parks was a man of feeble constitution, by his prudent and regular habits of life, attained the advanced age of 80 years. He was the youngest of six brothers. His parents were born and raised in the State of Virginia and emigrated to the State of Kentucky at an early day and settled in Lincoln county in that state, near Stanford the county town where Mr. Parks was born on the 12th day of October, 1800. About the time he came of age, he studied law, first reading with a cousin of his by the name of Forbes, and afterward with Robert Letcher, who was afterwards Governor of the state. About the year 1821, he was admitted to practice law in the courts of the State of Kentucky. In the early part of the year 1825, he married and in the fall of 1827, with his family, then consisting of his wife and two children, he moved to the State of Missouri, and settled in Cooper county, about 15 miles south of Boonville, where he continued to reside for about seven years. While living in Cooper county, he was examined and licensed to practice law in the courts of this state by Judge Tompkins, of the Supreme Court, but owing to his feeble health he never engaged in the active practice of his profession. In the fall of 1834, he moved to this county (then being a part of Lafayette county) and settled about three miles northwest of where the town of Calhoun now is. In the year 1835, this county was organized by the name of rives, and Mr. Parks was appointed to make the assessment of the taxable property of the county, for the year 1836. At the November term of the County court for the year 1836 - the court at that time being held at the house of Wm. Goff, one of the Judges, one mile south of Calhoun - he was appointed commissioner, with power to superintendent and lay off the site selected for a county seat, into town lots, and make sale of the same, which he proceeded to do, giving the town the name of Clinton. After he made the first sale of lots, he resigned, and the late John F. Sharp was appointed commissioner to make deeds and future sales of the lots. In the year 1844, he was elected to represent this county in the general assembly of the State, and discharged his duties as such representative with honor and credit to himself and constituents, among such men as Hamilton R. Gamble, Willis L. Williams, C. F. Jackson, B. F. Stringfellow and W. V. N. Bay, who were members of that assembly. In all his relations of public trust, he discharged his duties with care and strict fidelity, and entire satisfaction. As a private citizen he was universally loved and esteemed by those who knew him; as a neighbor he was ever kind and obliging; as a husband and father he was loving, affectionate and indulgent. He was a mason, and that broad and comprehensive charity which distinguishes the order, was a prominent element in his character. He was a firm, consistent and undoubting believer in the Universal Salvation of all mankind, and was cheered and sustained in his last moments by his faith, and retained his mental power to the last. His wife, Mrs. Almira Parks died on the 7th day of July, 1846. He had also lost two sons - Peyton M., who died October 5th, 1846 and John A., who died August 10th, 1847. His other children, six to number - four sons and two daughters - all reside in Henry county, Mo., and were all with him in his last sickness. A good man has gone from among us, but by his life has left to his children and friends a legacy more valuable than much riches. Let us emulate his example.

Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, 1922 - Peyton A. Parks Died - At his home in Clinton, at 4:50 p.m., May 26th, with heart trouble and complication. For several years he had known that the Heavenly summons were not far away. Skilled physicians, nurses and his beloved family did all in their power to extend his earthly stay as long as possible. Every day of his life had been intensive. He crowded every minute full of work, giving himself unstintingly to his profession and for public welfare. Early in his life it was seen he was a natural executive. He enjoyed serving and directing the affairs of local, country and state life. He was recognized as an leader of the Democratic party. He did not seek office, at any time of his life, although without effort, could have easily been elected to any position the American people had to offer. He was a man of unusual force of character. He was born in Henry County, August 22, 1855, being a son of James and Mary Allen Parks. His paternal grandfather was one of Missouri's honored and pioneer settlers, who laid out and founded Clinton. This grandfather was licensed to practice law in Kentucky and was one of the leading pioneer lawyers of Henry county. Then his son, James Parks, also practiced for many years, serving as probate judge for 20 years, also served as recorder and circuit clerk. With Mr. P. A. Park's son James A. Parks, now practicing law, it makes four generations of the Parks family having practiced law in this county for more than 80 years. Mr. Parks attended both public and private schools here and was the first graduate from the Clinton schools, graduating from the Clinton high school, alone in 1875. He started teaching at the age of 20 and was principal of the Montrose schools for three and a half years. During his leisure hours, he took up the study of law, and commenced to practice with his father in 1880, with whom he practiced until his father retired. Mr. Parks did not attend college, but he acquired one of the largest libraries in the state, and through constant study, he became authority on law. He was never at loss for principle or precedent to cite in proof of the correctness of his position. His was a master mind, one that directed without apparent effort. Life is not measured by its span of years, but how well we have used our talents. Mr. Parks used and developed every talent he had. He was held in highest esteem by all. He was entrusted with the estates of the widow and the orphan because it was known they would be honestly and kindly cared for. He was a man young in spirit, with a hearty hand clasp for his wide circle of friends. His bright happy smile has cheered many a disheartened soul. He was a man of the highest moral standards. He did not have a bad habit, except that of overworking. About five years ago, he united with the Clinton Baptist church under the ministry of its beloved pastor, Dr. W. E. Davis. He, for many years, had been a believer in Christianity. After he united with the church, he soon became teacher of a Bible Class in the Sunday School, which was one of the largest in the state and noted far and wide. Many prominent men stopped in Clinton over Sunday to be present at his class. He most faithfully taught the teachings of his Master, bringing into the hearts of many, the way of salvation, who otherwise would not have known. He took an active part in all developments of the church, until about 15 months ago, when he had to give up both the work of his Master and that of his law practice on account of his health. He spent some time in Canada in hopes of recuperating, but came home, realizing the end was near and wishing to spend the last days of his stay near those he loved best, and those whom he served. He loved nature, and his garden was always the best in town. He did much of the work himself, taking much pride in producing the first vegetable and the largest of its kind. He also enjoyed fishing, making a record at the club lake, for catching fish each month in the year. He enjoyed his religion, his work and his play. He did not murmur when he knew the end was coming, but got ready for the last journey, remembering ever those he loved best. A number of times had he told the writer to remind folks to carry out wishes of his, after his going away. In his home life he was most happy. He married Miss Mary E. Gathright, September 21, 1882. He and his wife spent these nearly 40 years of devotion to each other together. Both were ever alert for the comfort of the other. No matter how busy he was, the happiness and welfare of this little woman came first. And to her, he attributed much of his success, as she perfectly cooperated with every effort of his. To this union, one son was given, James A. Parks, who is a junior partner of the firm Parks & Son. He has one little daughter, Frances, who was the joy of her grandfather's life. The Comforter can only help heal those broken hearts. Mr. Parks was the only son of his parents. He had six sisters. Only two now survive, Mrs. C. C. Dickinson, Clinton; Mrs. James M. Harris, Idaho Falls, Idaho. Mr. Parks was an Elk and M.W.A. Dr. W. E. Davis, of Cameron, Mo., who baptized Mr. Parks, came to assist with the funeral services, which had been planned by Mr. Parks before his death. They were conducted at his late home Sunday afternoon. His body was laid in the J. G. Hill Vault, at Englewood, until one can be built for the Parks family.

Mt. Zion Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Little Ray William Parks was called from this world to enter the City of God about nine o'clock Saturday evening, Oct. 3rd, 1925. Ray William was the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. John R. Parks, living east of Brownington. He was born near Gaines, Mo., March 1, 1923. His age at time of death was 2 years, 8 months and 2 days. At home he leaves one sister, Elma, age 4 years. Both children became ill just before noon Saturday, and about 8 o'clock that evening, Ray William began to grow worse, and never recovered. His fatal malady is not wholly known but it is thought that the children received poison from playing with toadstools. Elma seemed as well as usual the next day. "Tis sad to part with one whom we have come to love so well. It seems that we cannot so suddenly cancel our future hopes in him. In his going, there is left a vacancy in a home which can never be filled. But the Master has said: "Suffer little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven," and so we have learned that we must say, "It is well." Besides his father, mother and sister, he leaves both his paternal and maternal grandparents, several relatives and many friends to mourn his loss. Rev. Harryman, pastor of the M. E. Church at Mt. Zion, conducted the funeral services at Mt. Zion, Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Oct. 4, 1925. Interment was in Mt. Zion cemetery.

PARKS, Samuel
n/a-1898
Clinton MO, Jul 30 1898 - Samuel Parks of Gaines died of asthma on the 22nd of the present month. It is thought he lived longer in Henry County than any other man now living, having come in 1832 or 1833 and hence had a residence here of over 76 years. When we reflect that by verbal communication we can reach back to the time when the Indians roamed at will over the county in their hunting expedition, it gives us a realization of Mr. Parks' local residence. The old pioneers of Missouri are dropping out of the trenches one by one. In religion, Mr. Parks adhered to the Universalist teaching. He was upright and honest. And he leaves a wife and six children all in Henry, but the oldest daughter who resides in Texas.

Windsor, Henry Co, MO - The beautiful life of Miss Sue Parks was ended Sunday at 7:00 p.m. when she died at her home in Windsor. She had been seriously ill for several weeks. Susan Ella Parks, daughter of Samuel and Christiana Parks, was born February 13, 1844, in Benton County, Missouri, about 12 miles from Warsaw. Her father was one of the old pioneers of Missouri, coming from Kentucky. He first settled in Cooper County, but moved to Benton County in 1841. Miss Sue, as she was always known to her friends, was one of nine children, all of whom have passed away except one sister, Mrs. R. H. Melton, of Clinton. Miss Sue lived on the farm during all her early life except for a short time when the family lived in Warsaw. One by one the sisters married and one brother, James Parks, left or California and later married. In 1875 the father died while serving a term in the State Legislature. From that time Miss Sue, her mother and her two brothers, Alex and Tom, lived together, at first in the country home, later in Windsor, to which town they moved in 1895. In 1906 the mother died and the sister lived with her two brothers till they also were taken, Tom in 1917 and Alex in 1919. At the time of this last bereavement. Miss Sue's relatives urged her either to leave her home or to have some one in the home to live with her, but she always refused. She loved her home and everything in it, her yard, her flowers and her trees. To her, there was no loneliness in this cherished spot, and she wanted no intrusion upon her privacy. Her books, in whose enjoyment she never lost her zest, were her chosen companions, Carlisle, Wordsworth and Tennyson, her favorites and she loved to quote from these authors, yet she loved her friends and always welcomed them to her home with old fashioned courtesy. She had a strength of will by which she seemed able to overcome physical ills to which most people would succumb. When in 1931 she fell and injured her hip, she was so determined not to be confined either to her bed or to house that by constant exercise she overcame her afflictions, so that the lameness was not noticeable. During the past four years she had been in failing health, requiring the care of a nurse and companion but it had been only a few weeks since her condition was considered serious. The funeral services were conducted Tuesday at the home and the body was laid to rest in Riverside cemetery at Warsaw, Mo. where she lived for many years. Mrs. Emma Dickinson and Mrs. E. D. Savles were present from Clinton for the funeral. James A. Parks and Mrs. Dickinson were at the Parks home Sunday night.

Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Tom B. Parks, veteran Democrat and County official, answered his last call to rest at his North Washington Street home, shortly after noon, Wednesday, July 24, 1940. His family and many friends at the courthouse knew his strength was definitely failing Tuesday evening, it bowing to the inevitable at 12:25 p.m. Wednesday when Death closed his eyes. Mr. Parks had been in a critical condition the past week, the culmination of long weeks of illness that had gradually sapped his strength. Thomas Benton Parks was born April 10, 1860, near Leesville, of well known pioneer parentage, Bird Denton and Lourinda J. Lee Parks. He was educated in the local rural schools near his father's large stock and grain farm and completed his study at the State Normal School at Warrensburg where he graduated in 1878. He then taught seven years, being for a time at George School, later superintendent of the Calhoun Schools. In 1887, Mr. Parks was appointed county surveyor to fill the unexpired term of his predecessor. The next year he was elected to the office, holding it until 1901 when he took his family to Montana, where he was employed as a federal surveyor, sectionalizing part of the Flat Head Indian Reservation. In 1907 he returned to Henry County to his farming and stock raising. IN 1916, he was again elected to the office of county surveyor and appointed by the county court as Highway Engineer, which office he had held with efficiency and good judgment until his death. Mr. Parks had definitely stated he was not to be a candidate in the Democratic primary in August, feeling his time of service was nearing its end. Mr. Parks was made happy thru the largest part of his long life by the gentle wife who graced his home, and who was the mother of their seven fine children. She was formerly Miss Minnie L. Strieby and came with her parents when a child of four to the Leesville neighborhood, where she was reared and as a winsome little girl went to school with Mr. Parks. They were married January 9, 1888 and made their first home in Clinton where they returned in 1919 and for many years have quietly and happily resided at the corner of Washington and Gravel Streets. Mr. Parks followed in the footsteps of his father, being a farmer raising stock, being an enthusiastic Democrat, an active Mason and a dependable member of the Methodist church. He attended services at the Franklin Street Methodist as long as he was able, and his genial smile and ready bow, his kindly manner and spirit marked him a gentleman at heart. A man of splendid principle, ambition and mind, a devoted husband who showed every consideration to his courageous wife, who has been confined to an invalid's chair 27 years, and a fine father whose every son and daughter had preceded their other work in life by some years of teaching experience; he filled well every requirement of the worthy citizen. Surviving Mr. Parks are his widow and their children, Mrs. Moad Davis of Clinton, Mrs. A. Dunning of Deepwater, J. Manford Parks of the home, Gordon Parks, Commander of the USS Maryland; Mrs. E. P. Welch of Pepperell, Mass., Mrs. S. C. Bass of New York, Mrs. Tanner Freeman, San Antonio, Texas; and 15 grandchildren, all of whom enjoyed a happy reunion together in Clinton last May 27.

PARKS, Thurman Richard
1890-1935
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Last Rites for Beloved Clinton Man Held Sunday at the M. E. Church, South - The life work of Thurman Richard Parks was brought to a close at 11:40 p. m., Thursday, July 4. His death came as a release from earthly suffering. Thurman Parks, son of James Peyton and Rhoda Coale Parks, was born November 12, 1890, on a farm near Leesville and came to Clinton with his parents when two. This had been his home since, with the exception of a few years he spent in Depew, Ill., when he was employed in the zinc works and where he learned the trade of electrician. After the Clinton municipal light plant was built, he was employed as assistant electrician for several years, then after Tony Hereford left became chief electrician. November 2, 1923, Mr. Parks was wiring a building when it became crossed with a high voltage line and in order to save his life, he kicked the ladder loose and fell to the walk. Workers nearby had to get pliers from his pocket to get him loose from the line. The fall resulted in a knee crack. October 17, 1924, a transformer fell against the same knee and resulted in such a serious injury he went to Mayo's, where everything possible was done to aid his recovery. He spent a while in Washington during his convalescence. He was in constant pain, but those who knew Thurman Parks never knew the suffering he was undergoing for he always gave a smile and a merry jest about every turn life took. In September, 1934, his suffering became so intense that it was necessary for him to have his leg amputated in hopes of stopping the progress of the bone infection which had resulted. He had been bedfast since March, this year. Miss Fannie Ward and Thurman Parks were united in marriage November 28, 1911, by Rev. A. N. Lindsay, who at that time said his marriages lasted, and such was true of Mr. and Mrs. Parks for they gave a beautiful devotion to each other. She survives with their two sons, Thurman Jr., age 21, and Bobby Don, age 4. A daughter died in infancy. He also leaves his beloved mother, Mrs. J. P. Parks, of Wenatchee, Wash., five brothers, G. W., Chas., Pete, Aubra and Bud Parks, and a sister, Mrs. Jack Lindsay, all of Wenatchee. A number of years Mr. Parks was assistant manager of the Last Chance Garage, and while associated here he helped build up the friendly, courteous service for which John E. Smith's garage was noted. He remembered faces and names and everyone was his friend. His life was rich in friendships, for to him, friends exceeded money and there was nothing he would not do for 'a friend. This characteristic endeared him to many, and acquaintances quickly became lasting and sincere friends. Mrs. Parks, his devoted wife, said he taught her friendliness, for embodied in his disposition was the essence of the art of making and holding friends Every time he saw an acquaintance he had a gay wave of the hand and a jolly "Hello, how are you ?" There is no wonder why "Parksie" was one of the most beloved figures in Clinton. Not only was Mr. Parks familiar with electrical things, but, with his versatile ability, knew how to work with wood and paints and other trades. Most of his talent along these lines was natural ability, supplemented with self teaching. Due to his good nature and helpfulness, he filled a place in the community which few people are privileged to fill, for he was ever ready with a helping hand with no thought of the remuneration to be gained from the use of his ability. Mr. Parks' home on North Second street was where he spent his happiest days. He and his beloved wife took just a house, and he remodeled into into a home, doing all the work himself. Here, kindliness and hospitality were supreme and not only his friends but those of his wife and sons were welcomed with cordiality and sincerity. This was a home where every guest always had a good time and relaxed in the atmosphere of happiness. The shrubs and flowers in the yard were artistically arranged by Mr. Parks, who placed them with care and tended them faithfully, finding the keenest delight in watching their growth. He was head advisor or Dad of the De Molays, and during his long illness, the boys made frequent visits to their beloved Dad. He was a friend of the young and the old, ever courteous and helpful, with an understanding of old people and their loneliness, and seemed to have an equal intuition about the needs of young people. He enjoyed play as well as work and knew how to equalize these to gain the greatest happiness from life. The churches for the colored people in Clinton were wired by Mr. Parks without charge, and he did many kindly acts for these people. As a result, he won their unstinted devotion and during his last days they watched with silent grief, but with ministering hands. Many times, one of the good colored Women would cook dinner, help clean up the house for Mrs. Parks, or do the washing, which causes one to realize that in this commercial age there is yet the spirit of helpfulness and human kindness in the time of grief and need. For some weeks when the end began to approach and talking became difficult, he was unable to see his friends, but to all who called he expressed his appreciation of their being there. From Monday on, when he knew that the end was coming, he told his loved ones they must not break down but keep up their courage. Only then did they know the great pain that he suffered. Mr. Parks was a Mason and always believed in the teachings of the M. E. church, South. A few weeks before his death, he made a profession of his faith and was baptized in his own home by the pastor, Dr. J. E. Alexander. He was voted into the church at the morning service, but was unable to attend. At his request the funeral was held at this church. The funeral was held at 2:30 Sunday at the M. E. church, South. Masonic services were held at Englewood. Mrs. Parks' sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Bottens, of Osawatomie, Kans., and the Parks' friends of many years' standing, Mr. and Mrs. Tony Hereford, and daughter, Hope, of Leavenworth, Kans., came for the funeral. Mrs. Bottens remained to be with her sister for a time and the Herefords are visiting his aunt, Mrs. Sam Shadwell, and other relatives here.

Though young in years he was unusually large and strong and cheerfully performed a man's task since most of the grown men were in the army. As a man he operated a sawmill until old age forced him to give up hard work. At the age of 14 he was converted and united with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, serving as elder in the Surprise congregation for many years and remaining strong in the faith until death. His was a life of devotion to his family and God, nothing being too humble for him to do for loved ones and friends in sickness.

Possessing inventive and mechanical ideas he labored tirelessly repairing machinery or some needed article for the house, farm, or sawmill. His devotion to his God was strong, never faltering in the faith which was a controlling factor in his last illness. He continually rejoiced in the hope he had that Jesus was coming and how God was blessing him, yet warning everyone to pray and be ready.

PARSCALE, Bessie Pearl STARK WEAVER
1896-1992
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Bessie Pearl Stark was born on October 29, 1896, in her parents' home near Harper and Iconium, to John Clements Stark and Cynthia Ann Car Stark. She was the youngest of four children, with brothers, Daniel, Frances and Jesse. On November 4, 1914, she and Houston Norflete Weaver were married. He died on March 9, 1924, leaving Bessie with two daughters, Jessie Ellice Weaver and Lucille Pearl Weaver. On June 10, 1925, she was married to Jessie M. Parscale at Osceola. She became the stepmother of Dorothy, Orpha Lee, James and Jay Parscale. She resided in Brownington about 40 years, moving with Jesse to Deepwater in 1970, where she lived until one year ago, when she entered Sycamore View Nursing Home, until her death on March 13, 1992. She is survived by one daughter, Jessie Cole; three granddaughters, Louanna Simmons of Kansas, Suzan Nolan of South Dakota and Connie Howle of South Dakota; six great-grandchildren, step-daughter, Orpha Lee Norris, and 11 step-grandchildren. She created beauty where she could, using everyday things around her in quilting, in crocheted and embroidered pieces, in the thousands of well-planned and nourishing meals she prepared. She loved flowers; long ago the rows of bright annuals bloomed alongside rows of corn and potatoes, roses climbed trellises and daffodils shared springtime gold under her care, and windowsills were bright with geraniums and Christmas cactus. A clean and orderly house welcomed friends and family every day, no matter how busy she was with seasonal chores. Traditional values instilled in her during childhood remained a part of her adult life - frugality, practicality, a slow and conservative approach to anything new, along with the feeling that "new" wasn't necessarily "better". Her quiet faith in her God and His Promises guided her and sustained her through the loss of two husbands, a daughter, most of her relatives and lifelong friends and through the many setbacks and disappointments life hands to all of us. She was a very private person, an anachronism who perhaps was sometimes not entirely comfortable with the fast moving pace of life around her, but the stability and unchanging views she held about what was good and bad, right and wrong, served as a reminder, a lesson, a caution to all around her that some things, some values and truths are forever. We who loved her will miss her, but we are joyful in our certainty that she is now in the wonderful second phase of her life, for which the first was lived. Funeral services were held on March 15, 1992, at the Sickman & Dunning Chapel. Burial was in the Maplewood Cemetery in Brownington.

She took her part last Thursday, but became too ill for the second performance. While attending school she helped in the Nuhn home in Urich where she first became ill. She joined the Lucas M. E. South Church when 12 and there worshipped. Hers was a sweet, lovable disposition and she had many friends. She was a good student and held a warm place in the hearts of both teachers and students.

He came on horseback from Kentucky in 1842, crossing the Mississippi at St. Louis, then only a small town. J. T. Paul was educated in Shawnee Township where he grew to worthy manhood following in the footsteps of his splendid father, developing similar ability for he too successfully farmed, raised stock and fed cattle. He was well known all over Henry County, a man of influence, generosity and the soul of honor.

Mr. Paul was a notable man, possessed of the finest character and principle. He lived by a strict code with simple, modest tastes. His life and actions attest the love of his family and the esteem of his neighbors, among whom his influence will be felt through future years. Since the death of her mother six years ago, his granddaughter, Anna Lee Paul, had made her home with her grandfather and his love for and interest in this charming girl and his promising grandson whom he had been sending to college were among the happiest experiences of late years. Surrounded with great love and gentle care, this early Henry Countian closed his eyes for his long sleep, a noble, honorable, Christian gentleman.

PAUL, Richard
1871-1899
Paul Cemetery, Shawnee Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Aug 26 1899 - Richard Paul, youngest son of Wm. Paul, Esq. was born at the old family residence near Huntingdale July 21, 1871 and from consumption of the lungs, departed this life in the house in which he was born at 8:20 a.m., August 20, 1899. His health had been gradually failing for about a year and he has been permanently confined to his bed since the 14th of last April. He was a popular, promising and enterprising young gentleman, of more than ordinary intelligence, and endowed with remarkable presence of mind up to the very hour of his final departure. His father, Squire Paul, is one of the best known citizens of this part of the state and perhaps has contributed more largely of his extensive means toward building churches than any other man in Henry County. About everybody in this part of the world knows eccentric and large-hearted old Brother Paul and all sympathize with him in his bereavement. A short time before his departure, Richard was happily converted and exhorted the young men who stood around his dying bed to lose no time but to make their peace with God without delay. His earnest appeals were not unavailing. God was using the departing young man for His own glory. He was laid to rest in the quiet little hillside cemetery, within a few hundred yards of the house in which he first saw the light of day.

PAUL, Samuel Wood
1866-1936
Carrsville Cemetery, Big Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - S. W. Paul, one of Henry County's leading stock feeders, died late Friday afternoon, February 14, at his home north of Huntingdale, where he had spent most of his life. His health had been declining for sometime, and last December he entered the hospital at Kirksville, where he underwent two operations. His condition did not improve, so February 7 he was brought home, where he was tenderly cared for by his family and a nurse. Samuel Wood Paul was born June 9, 1866, on the farm southwest of Huntingdale, where his brother, James Paul, now lives. He was educated in that community, there grew to manhood and bought a farm for himself a few miles northwest of his birthplace. He had one of the most attractive and well improved places in the county. In 1908 he erected on his farm a modern ten room residence, which later burned, and in 1926 he erected another home, a large, well-built, attractive place. All the buildings on the farm were kept in first class condition and were up-to-date and convenient in every way. At his death, Mr. Paul owned a 750-acre farm, most of which was in pasture. He specialized in cattle feeding, also kept a few hogs, and shipped the stock to Kansas City, St. Louis, and Chicago. Many times cattle from the Paul farm topped the market, for Mr. Paul studied carefully the methods best adapted for stock feeding in this part of the state and kept abreast of new ideas, so cattle from this farm invariably graded high. He took a great pride in his work and enjoyed taking care of his farm and stock. Mr. Paul was cheerful, uncomplaining, a good neighbor and friend, ever ready to lend a helping hand. He was rather quiet, but always extended a hearty welcome to friends and delighted to visit with them, for he was a true Missourian in point of always evident hospitality. He attended both the Huntingdale Methodist and the Corinth Baptist churches, taking an active interest in the church work until his health began to fail. He was a member of the Agricola Masonic lodge at Petersburg and had gone into the Shrine. He was one of Henry County's most substantial and respected citizens, and he reared his daughter and sons to have the same fine high qualities of capability, honesty and dependability which he possessed. Mr. Paul was united in marriage January 31, 1893, to Miss Beulah B. Carr, who preceded her husband in death July 10, 1918. To this union were given three children, Miss Leah, Uel and William, all of whom reside on the home place. He also leaves four grandchildren, to whom he was devoted and two brothers, John T. Paul, west of Huntingdale, and James Paul, southwest of Huntingdale. Funeral services were conducted at the Corinth Baptist church Sunday. Interment was beside his wife in the Carrsville cemetery.

He was a faithful member of the Huntingdale Methodist Church, uniting on Nov. 23, 1947.

PAUL, William "Squire"
1820-1923
Paul Cemetery, Shawnee Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Squire Paul, Henry County's Oldest Citizen Dead - Saturday morning, the spirit of Squire Wm. Paul left his earthly body for the Home on High. For many weeks he could hardly be roused and it was known the end was near. For a number of years he had been very feeble and not able to leave the house. During all that time his son, James Paul, and wife tenderly ministered to his every need and filled the life of this good father full of cheer and love. Mrs. James Paul has been like an own daughter in the work of love and ministration. Not only they, but the other sons and their families had a part in the care of this dear good father. He was born in Hardin county, Kentucky, January 5th, 1820, and would have been 104 years old had he lived until the coming January. Mrs. Jas. Paul never forgot to cook the things the Squire loved to eat. He always wanted plenty of fat meat, no matter what else they had. In the spring his favorite dinner was one of greens, hog jowl, buttermilk and corn bread. And what could be better. Nothing can equal it. Squire Paul died in the house he helped hew out of the timber more than three quarters of a century ago. He died on the bedstead with springs made of rope and in the room where the huge stone fireplace had warmed so many years. This home is one of the few remaining early landmarks of the county. Squire Paul was a man of the rugged type of honesty, who practiced the Golden Rule in everyday living. He was well educated, then made use of every talent he had. Among them was a clever wit, that made the life of each person with whom he came in contact a little happier. He loved children and people. He not only loved, but understood them in such a way that when they needed a friend most, they turned to him. After all, life does not amount to much unless those we love depend upon us for things. He always gave advise council and during all his years of service as justice of the peace he never had a case appealed to a higher court or a divorce suit from a marriage he performed. The loving advice and fair decisions counted for more than law with his people. He had no creed or politics in friendship. His friends were in all classes, all religions and all politics. He was a staunch Republican, but never knew defeat in any election, even though his party was in the minority. The Huntingdale Methodist church had in him a real guiding hand. Many churches often fail to keep their promises to their pastors, if they happen not to like them. Not so at Huntingdale, for whether the preaching was good or poor, no preacher ever left with but his full salary, a cheering word, a handshake and friendly counsel. He reasoned if the preacher was poor he needed more help, while if he was good, appreciation of his work should be rewarded, so all come in for an equal share. Would that we all might emulate the Squire's example in this as well as many other things. He never did hard physical work, but instead studied and planned so that his business was always financially successful. In fact he was always willing to help any of his neighbors in the same way. He always had money to loan to those in need. Most of the time he was repaid. But many a time as a borrower had misfortune and trouble the Squire would just "mark out the bill." This was practical Christianity. He had a keen sense of humor and was a popular speaker on every public occasion. the last public speech he made was in the fall of 1919, when his 100th birthday was celebrated. Many also remember his speech on bond burning day, a few years before that. He often told on his birthday about on that many years ago, when the women of the neighborhood gathered in that little Kentucky home and said: "My what a pretty baby!" This good nature and joking made life a little happier for all. It was the fall of 1919 that the neighbors of Huntingdale decided they would like to celebrate the Squire's 100th birthday, also make it a home coming for the soldier boys. The celebration was held on the Squire's land. Seats, tables, a platform and everything was built, so that all the 5,000 people who came were comfortably seated and well fed. The neighbors paid for the barbecued meat, burgoo soup, pickles and bread. They invited Henry L. Morris, of Vega, Texas, the Squire's former neighbor and good friend, up to superintend the barbecuing of the beeves. Mr. Morris accepted the invitation, the trenches were made and the meat barbecued in a way that none shall forget, it was so delicious. The women of the neighborhood responded with 1,000 pies and 500 cakes, as well as salads and other good thins. It was a day of good fellowship. None could tell which was the happier, the Squire, the boys returned from war or the home folks and their guests. My how glad we were all there. It was a day that has gone down in Henry county history. The funeral services were at the Huntingdale church, which the Squire loved, and where he worked for so many years for his Lord. The church was filled and it was said more than 300 men stood in the yard to pay their respects to this beloved pioneer. Not one person in 10,000 ever sees a man over a hundred years old and it is indeed wonderful that he should live so long. His body was laid in the Paul cemetery on the hill above where the celebration of his 100th birthday was held. The graveside services were in charge of the Clinton and Carrsville Masons. Mr. Paul had seen much of the early life and development of Henry county. He saw this county in almost its primitive state and had not only lived to see the marvelous improvements and advancement of considerably more than half a century, but had done his part towards the building up of Henry county. Mr. Paul recalled many early day conditions, incidents and pioneers. He said Aaron and Samuel Cann started the first store in Huntingdale and were merchants there for a number of years. Mr. Paul remained here during the Civil war and always gave his influence to the maintenance of law and order and did much for the restoration of civil authority after the great conflict ended. He was justice of the peace for 52 years. He had done his part nobly and well and the present and future generations of Henry county cannot do better than to indelibly write the name of this noble pioneer in the imperishable record of Henry county. Squire Paul was the oldest living Mason in Missouri, having been made a Mason about 66 years ago.

Clinton MO, Nov 4, 1899 - Died on Friday, October 27, 1899, Sarah Jane Peck, beloved wife of Charles W. Peck of LaDue. Before her marriage, she was Miss S. J. Miller and was born in Lincoln county, Missouri August 1871; joined the Baptist church in 1884, later affiliating with the Methodist church to which her husband belonged. About five years ago, she left the home of her childhood to live with her sister, Mrs. Steinhammer, at Beebe, Arkansas, where she met Mr. Peck and became his wife October 6, 1894. Two sons were born - Harold, who has been sick and is 3 years old; Myron, who died on the 20th inst., six months old. C. W. Peck and family came to LaDue last February from Beebee, where he still owns a 120 acre farm, and he bought the dwelling house and livery barn at LaDue, formerly owned by C. M. Adkins. All went well for some months and Mr. Peck and lady, by their Christian lives and amiable manner, grew into the hearts and affections of their fellow citizens. About ten weeks since, Mrs. Peck, who had been nursing a sick child of her sister, Mrs. Steinhammer, who had moved to Clinton, returned to LaDue and was stricken with typhoid fever. Her two children were soon down with the disease. There are hopes that Harold, with proper care, may fully recover. Charles W. Peck is a deeply stricken man. He has been afflicted with deafness and impediment of speech for some years and now the hand of death has snatched from his side all that life held dear to him, except his first born. His wife's mother, Mrs. Garner, carefully and lovingly tended her daughter thru her last illness and was with her, through the seven weeks to the last. Albert Steinhammer, the deceased's brother, attended the funeral from Appleton City, where he is professor of grammar in the Appleton City College.

PERRY, Dora GREENE CRISSEY
1859-1938
Laurel Oak Cemetery (P), Windsor, Henry Co, MO
Windsor, Henry Co, MO - Mrs. Dora Crissey Perry died at her home, 502 South Main street, June 23, after prolonged illness. The funeral was conducted from the Methodist church Sunday afternoon. Interment was in the Crissey family lot in Laurel Oak cemetery. Mrs. Perry in her later years gradually outlived most of her contemporaries, but at one time was one of Windsor's best known citizens. For the past seven years she has been afflicted with paralysis, causing loss of speech, and for the past year and a half had been a bedfast invalid, resulting from shock over the loss of her beloved husband, J. W. Perry, who died on her 78th birthday, February 2, 1937. Mrs. Perry was born in 1859 on a plantation near Knoxville, Tenn. As a little girl, immediately after the Civil War, she moved by wagon with her family from Tennessee into Missouri. A number of emancipated slaves, formerly belonging to the family, accompanied them to Missouri. The Greene family settled in Henry County, five miles northwest of Calhoun, but soon after moved to and built a home on a farm two miles west of Calhoun. Here Miss Dora Greene met William Ernest Crissey of Windsor, formerly of Illinois, representative of a large Philadelphia mercantile firm, and previously a lieutenant of Illinois Cavalry during the Civil War. They were married in 1883, and immediately established their permanent home in Windsor, from 1884 until Mr. Crissey's death in 1902, occupying the large home at 502 South Tebo street. Four children were born, surviving are Virgil in Colorado, Elwell in New York City. These two sons are the only survivors of the immediate family. In 1913 Mrs. Crissey was married to J. W. Perry of Windsor. The inseparable devotion of this couple for nearly a quarter of a century, terminated only by Mr. Perry's death, was an inspiration and a joy to all who knew them. No man and wife could have been happier together or more loyal to each other. This loyalty was shared by the brothers who survived Mr. Perry's death. During five years her husband had tendered Mrs. Perry every care, thinking no sacrifice too costly if it contributed to her comfort. The responsibility relinquished by the husband at death was immediately assumed by his brothers. Throughout these eighteen recent pitiful months, while Mrs. Perry lay in her bed paralyzed, mute, and helpless, she was watched over and cared for with loving solicitude by Paul E. Perry of Windsor, and by his wife, Uva, until she too died last March. As a girl of 17 Dora Greene professed Christ Jesus as her Savior, and placed in Him her hope of eternal life. At that time she united with the Methodist Episcopal church, South, of Calhoun. Throughout all her life she remained the steadfast supporter of her church. This good woman lived a rich life, and came to its end full of years and honor; for she had faced starkest tragedy, yet had lived to laugh again; she had known tribulations, yet by stout heart had conquered them; she had experienced pride and gladness, yet had not yielded to selfishness.

PHILLIPS, Chloe E.
1892-1937
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Spirit of Miss Chloe Phillips Takes Flight - Although an Invalid for More Than 15 Years the Result of a Fall, Her Hands and Heart Found Many Ways of Useful Service - "If you face the sun, the shadow will fall behind" was exemplified in the life of Miss Chloe Phillips. For though she had been bedfast since 1922, the glory of complete living gave her face an aliveness that made friends forget her invalidism and pain, and dropped all shadows behind. Her mental and spiritual beauty triumphed over the broken body, hurt in a fall, and her hands and heart that always sought that beauty and cherished it even in tiny bits, illumined her face with a glory made possible through the Christ in her heart. A friend was asked, if when visiting Miss Phillips, if she would talk of herself, and the reply came, "No, of course not, she always had so much of interest to tell and she wanted to find out so many things there was no time left." A few weeks ago her brother and wife noticed she was not so well and that she was becoming more frail, but as she would never tell others of her pain and suffering they did not realize how serious her stomach ailment was until Monday morning, when the doctor arrived, he advised that she be taken to a Kansas City hospital, but she slipped into heaven at 10:30 a.m., ten minutes before the ambulance arrived. Chloe Phillips was the first and only daughter that came to the home and hearts of Dr. and Mrs. R. S. Phillips, June 12, 1892, when he was a practicing physician, northwest of Clinton at Garland. In 1897 they moved to St. Clair County, Missouri, where he bought a 400 acre farm and opened a store and started a mill. Two years later in 1899 when the post-office was established, Dr. Phillips named it for his little daughter, Chloe, and this post office kept her hands busy during the later years of her life when she was unable to walk. Reared at Chloe where everybody knew and loved her as well as her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Phillips, and her brothers, she was educated in the elementary schools and then went to Kansas City to attend business college, staying with her brother, V. E. Phillips, who was a rising young attorney. Her first position was with the American State Bank in Kansas City, then as her business ability increased, she became auditor of the Commercial National Bank in Kansas City, Kans. It was there December 23, 1920, while on the mezzanine floor, she slipped and fell down 13 steps which gave her a spine injury that at first was not considered so serious, altho it gave her considerable pain, but two years later, the tissue had grown on the spine, that impinged the nerves which made her an invalid. She spent four years in hospitals in hopes of recovering her health, many months of which were in Kansas City hospitals; then at Mayos in Rochester, Minn., where they recommended a hospital in Lincoln, Nebr., that specialized in spinal injuries, but nothing cured nor even helped. When it was found there was no cure, she was taken to the home farm August 11, 1926, still owned by her brothers, Urban V. and V. E. Phillips. There she has been surrounded by happiness and love, as her sister-in-law, Mrs. Urban Phillips, gave her as tender care as if she had been her own sister. Chloe Phillips, brilliant of mind, did not lie still and grumble at her fate. Instead of that she became assistant post mistress of the post office that bore her name and Chloe became literally a post office on wheels, as Mrs. Phillips was post mistress and had the boxes so arranged that Miss Chloe could sort the mail and put letters, papers, etc., into their right pigeon holes, ready for the public. Her business training enabled her to keep a beautiful set of books for the post office and the accounts in perfect order. Not only did the routine duties occupy her but the patrons were all her friends. Their joys and sorrows became hers and happy they were to visit her bed of sunshine as she reflected the joy of living to them. Every child was her friend. They confided in this gentle lady who lay on her bed with hand and mind so busily occupied because she was interested in each and everyone as they came. Not only the children, but the young people, the more mature, the old. For each one she had something to give. She was well informed on every question of the day, reading magazines, books and papers. When guests came, she was interested to find out their view point on things and had more to tell of their communities than they themselves knew. It was a great privilege to be her guest. Never a murmur as to her illness or what we would term affliction, though she could hardly raise her head above her body on account of the nerves being affected, it made her too dizzy. But she could help with the homely tasks of the house such as peeling apples and potatoes. She wrote beautiful letters and had nearly 200 friends on her mailing list, keeping up a correspondence with business friends whom she knew before she was injured, with those she met in hospitals all over the nation. She perhaps knew more people and their hearts than any woman of her age in Missouri. From the time she went to the home of her brother, there has always been a nurse to assist in her care. Perhaps the most devoted of all has been Miss Adaline Van Allen, who has been there three years. They planned and worked together. When Mrs. Urban Phillips would be away from home, they would plan a happy surprise for her return. One time she had them lift her to the floor and she varnished it. She had been unable to ride of recent years but earlier in her invalidism, she was occasionally able to be taken in a car for rides until last summer. An extension telephone put her in the reach of every friend she could call over the telephone. She had a half dozen chickens that she fed from her window daily and they were such pets they were allowed to come into the house to visit her. She enjoyed her Persian cats but her favorite was an immense nine-year-old Persian named Humdinger. Her spirt today has risen to another land. She turned what most people would consider a bed of affliction into a court of understanding where she analyzed people, their troubles and ever made her life one of helpfulness and interest to those she knew. Her father died in 1917, her mother in 1929. She is survived by her three brothers, Urban V. of the home, Colonel C. C. Phillips of Lowry City and V. E. Phillips of Kansas City; a niece, Mrs. George Hillegas, a mile away. She was converted and joined the First Presbyterian church of Kansas City, Kans., before she left there. She had expressed often the desire for a private funeral but the children and the people of the neighborhood wanted to come to the last service so the brothers decided to have it at the home Tuesday. Her body was laid to rest in Englewood beside her parents.

Sersey at the inquest stated that he had started on his way to Grand River, which is a short distance away, to fish, when he discovered that he had forgotten to bring along a line he desired to use. Upon starting back and yet some distance from his own home he was hailed by Pierce who lived a stone's throw away. Sersey stated Pierce commanded him to wait and at the same time brandished a knife in his hand. Sersey accordingly picked up a stone from the ground and turned toward his home. Pierce followed carrying rocks and is alleged to have threatened to cut the aged man's throat. Arriving at the house Sersey ran in and attempted to close the door to shut out the other man. but he was not quick enough. Pierce let fly a piece of a brick which hurled through the open door to crash on the other side of the room. The final scene in this fatal drama came when Pierce set his foot on the door casement preparatory to entering. Sersey ran to his bed and extracted from under the pillows a .32 caliber H. & R. revolver, which he pointed at the other and fired, the bullet striking very near the heart. Pierce staggered back and walked to the next door south which opens in on the quarter of George Palmer, an aged man, who occupies one half of the house. Pierce, according to Palmer, stated that he was shot and wanted to lie down. Upon entering the house Pierce fell and was soon dead. Mr. Palmer stated that Pierce was carrying a rock when he came into his quarters. Sersey in the meantime ran to the home of John Yewell who notified Sheriff Kahmann. The sheriff arrived a short time later and found Sersey sitting outside the house. Sersey told his story and showed the sheriff where the brick had struck the wall inside the house. Fragments of the rock were still upon the floor. Sheriff Kahmann upon examining the dead man discovered in the clothing a knife for cutting leather and a pocket knife. The sheriff next went to the Pierce home where he questioned the wife. There were four children in the home. She stated at the inquest that Sersey had been carrying a gun, and this was the cause of the quarrel. She stated that Sersey had been a frequent caller at their home. Geo. Palmer stated that he had been eating breakfast when he saw Sersey and Pierce go by his part of the house. Shortly afterward he heard a shot and upon going to the door met the wounded man who wanted to lie down. Mr. Palmer stated that Pierce in conversation with him, threatened to "get even with Sersey." The aged man did not know the cause of the disagreement between the two men. Sersey stated the quarrel was due to a disagreement which resulted when he traded a stove to the Pierces. Deputy sheriff Floyd Thompson corroborated the sheriff's story when called to testify. The coroner's jury returned the following verdict: "We find that the above Monroe Pierce came to his death on the 2nd day of April 1932, by a gun shot wound fired by John Wesley Sersey in self defense and in the protection of his own life. Signed: Emory Hurt, foreman; Virgil Jekins, R. W. Parks, George Cruce, J. S. Booth, T. H. Canig.

PIGG, David Burton
1856-1937
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Mar 1937 - D. B. Pigg, Pioneer Resident of Calhoun Dies - His Home Contained Remarkable Collection of Antiques - Also a Wonderful Library of Old Volumes - Truly an Outstanding Citizen - The desire often expressed by David B. Pigg, "I don't want money, all I want to do is to live, see things, and just want to accumulate enough to see me through life," was granted when he peacefully went into the eternal sleep at 8:15 p.m. March 13, 1937. He enjoyed a birthday celebration of his sister-in-law, Mrs. W. A. Coe, Wednesday of last week. That night he suffered two nervous chills, but his condition was not alarming, though he was bedfast, as his heart had been affected for some years. Saturday evening he ate at 6:00, sitting on the edge of the bed. About an hour later, he asked Mrs. Coe if she was tired, and when she replied, "No, I am here to take care of you," he laid back down in bed, turned away on his side and went into eternal sleep. David Pigg was born in Calhoun, April 22, 1856, a descendent of English parentage of one of the oldest and finest pioneer settlers in Henry County, who came from Kentucky to Calhoun about 1843. He spent most of his years when not traveling, in the town of his birth. The home where he died, on the east side of the square, was built flush with the street. In warm weather, he and his wife, seated in comfortable chairs and benches on the sidewalk, enjoyed their neighbors, exchanging ideas from early spring to late fall, it being an open forum. This group was an unofficial reception committee for the annual Calhoun Colt Show. Mr. Pigg, a keen student of human nature, had an insight into life as he found it and enjoyed companionship with those of like intellect, scorning a man's financial status, seeking those of a kindred spirit. Sometimes, after hearing the news from the neighborly gathering at his home, he would slip away to work crossword puzzles, or to read from his wealth of material in one of the best of libraries of Henry County, which contained over 1000 books, some dated as far back as 1830 and 1840 and which included a set of Missouri statues as old as 1865. During his youth, he yielded to a desire to see the world and traveled extensively, but in later years, he traveled mentally thru his books and the National Geographic Magazine. He has practically every issue for 25 or 30 years, and listened avidly when his wife read to him. He was happily married to Mrs. Mittie Kee, in 1904, and a trip to the World's Fair in St. Louis that year was their honeymoon, which was continuous to his death with a companionship that is rarely found. He was an outstanding citizen, ever abreast with progress and was among the first automobile owners in the county, his first a Winton, high-wheeled, open car, and the last one owned was a Chevrolet, sold about two years ago to a nephew, Dick King, at Leeton, who turned the sturdy well-kept engine into power for his buzz saw. He was a connoisseur, and had much fine old furniture, rare books, choice glass and miscellaneous articles, which accumulated until his home became a meeting place of antique collectors. About three years ago, he went to his step-son, Ferman Kee, who was in the insurance business at Calhoun, and handed him a brief sketch of his life, saying, "Herek, son, if you feel the need of some copy, you can type this off" for Mr. Kee was learning to type, but this paper was laid aside, then found Monday, a wonderful account of a life lived to the fullest, one that took the grain, and left the husk. His written life history says in part: "My education, what I have, is academic. At the age of 18, I went to Texas, where I taught two terms of school; one in Lavacca County and the other in Liveoak County. Went by rail and returned by horse, camping out every night except one which was at Johnstown, Mo., where I traded my mount for a duplex watch and $14. Staged to Montrose, caboose the rest of the way, which was Sunday. The first person I met on arrival home was William Edmondson, who was standing on the west end of the present depot platform and the next one was my father near the east end. When I arrived at home, my mother was sitting out in front and did not at once recognize me, but when she did Joy was unconfined. When I reached the age of 21, my mother traded 80 acres of land, the Tarr tract, for a stock of goods and put me in charge. After a few months in Calhoun I moved to Benton County when I established the Palo Pinto post office. The venture was not successful, and later I moved to Cass County where I did quite well. Later I went into business at Lewis, building my own store house. In addition to merchandising, I engaged in coal mining and developed one of the completest power plants in Henry county, being the pioneer in machine mining in Henry County. At one time I engaged in the drug business with A. M. Highnote. Just prior to the World War, I traded my stock of goods for a small farm in St. Clair County, closed my mine and quit, selling my mine equipment to the junk man. I have not engaged in active business since. Took a wife in 1904 and have lived and am now living in the same block in which I was born. My old home is still standing and the latch string of the kitchen, next room to the one in which I made my advent into the world, still hangs out. I have been in at least three-fourths of the states, seen the Pacific ocean and ridden on its waters. Have been up and down the Columbia river from Portland, Oregon, over that renowned scenic highway. My troubles have been those of the average citizen, while my pleasures have been augmented by my span of life and I am still getting much joy out of it. Aside from my mother, the best companion I ever had is my little woman. We are happily mated and reasonably healthy, thanks to our simple life." He is survived by his wife, his stepson, Ferman Kee, Warrensburg; a nephew, Mason Wall, Calhoun; nieces, Mrs. Will Tarr, Calhoun; Mrs. Dick King, Leeton; Mrs. Lelia Gray, who is now in Springfield; Mrs. Edith Simpson, Kansas City; and Mrs. Will Gutridge, Clinton.

PIGG, Edith ROBINSON

Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Edith Robinson was born in Madison county, Kentucky, January 4, 1824; while yet a child the family removed to near Winchester, Clark county, where she grew to womanhood, and on October 15, 1840, married David H. Pigg. In April, 1843, this sturdy young couple left their childhood home to rear a new home in the then Far West, bearing with them their first born, an 18 months-old daughter. They journeyed by water to Boonville, Mo., thence on horseback 75 miles to an uncle's, near Calhoun, and a week later, in the same month of their departure from Kentucky they located in Calhoun. Here they endured the hardships incident to pioneers - that glorious race now nearly vanished. Here the home was planted, children came, grew, planted other homes, and bore life's joys and griefs. May 1, 1896, the husband died at the age of 76 years, 4 months and 7 days. Widowed, his companion and helpmeet continued her residence in the structure erected over half a century ago, ministered unto by devoted children and grandchildren. Last fall her health began to fail, the last few months her condition becoming such as to require ever present and watchful care. So that her death ws not unexpected at any moment, yet when Death laid his icy finger on her placid brow Saturday morning last, the grief of those who mourn was strong and deep. Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, in the home where she had dwelt for nearly fifty-three years, kindred, friends and neighbors assembled to condole and pay tribute to one so long known and beloved. With tenderness Rev. R. J. Kyle, of the Methodist church, counseled bereaved, and then the casket was borne to the cemetery. Of nine children, six survive - Mrs. Sarah Wall, Mrs. J. W. Gutridge, Mrs. Gussie Renfro, John R., David B. and Butler Pigg, all present in the last sad hours, except Butler, who resides in Sedro Woolley, Washington. Besides these children, 32 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren, deceased leaves one brother, Jonas, five years her senior, living in Cook county, Texas.

He had been in declining health for a number of years. A year ago this month, he had a severe illness, which left him so enfeebled that he could no longer maintain his own home, so his son and wife requested him to come to Clinton to make his home with them. Deceased was born near Calhoun, August 16, 1847, being 81 years, 5 months and 23 days of age. He attended school at Plumb Grove. At the time of his death he was one of the oldest native born Henry county citizens. January 17, 1867, he was united in marriage to Eliza Jane Logan at her home in eastern Henry county, making his home on a farm, southeast of Coal, until he came to the home of his son. This home was just east of the Turner school, and it was cleared by Mr. Pigg, and all the improvements put on. Their hospitality was known far and wide. The orchard and garden were well cared for and a delight to all. After his health became such that he was unable to farm, he delighted in directing the care of their garden. He and his beloved companion were happy in this house by the side of the road and the friendly spirit of their well kept home and farm cheered every passerby. His wife lived until four years ago. After her passing it was never the same, but he still clung to the old home, until he came to the home of his son, where they surrounded him with love and everything possible, but it did not take the longing away for his own home, altho he appreciated everything done for him. He enjoyed driving with Yantis, the modern things of life. He enjoyed reading and was well informed on every subject. This son and wife, who have given him this devoted care through these declining months will miss him most but they know that he is happy with his beloved companion, and his four daughters and two grandchildren who have passed on. The living children are Y. R. Pigg, Clinton; W. E. and M. L. Pigg, Ponca City, Okla., Mrs. Jeff LaRue, near Finey; also thirteen grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.

PIGG, James Wharton
1855-1938
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - J. W. Pigg, 83, Died Oct. 3 - Life-Long Resident of Henry County, Son of Pioneer Ancestry - Had Lived Near Calhoun - Death that had lingered two weeks, as though reluctant to take from realms of life the fine spirit and noble soul of James W. Pigg, bore him aloft at 3:00 p.m. Monday, October 3. For hours he had been in a state of coma, and breath became gradually more measured until the end. As he had lived at peace with men, so his passing was quiet, though it brought tears to those he had loved through the long years of his gallant life. He had been confined to his bed but two weeks, yet with activities curtailed by impaired vision and declining health, he never became discouraged or sad, but lived with faith in the promises of his Creator. James Wharton Pigg, born January 26, 1855, in Tebo Township near Calhoun, was the son of Reuben Pigg and Emily Parks Pigg, natives of Kentucky who came with pioneer parents in covered wagons to wrest an empire from the western wilderness. The Parks family homesteaded near Coal and the Pigg family, their relatives, in the Calhoun neighborhood. Young James, a boy of slight build, was educated in the rural schools of the neighborhood, Plum Grove, Merritt, Turner and Logan, to which he went, often fording streams in wet seasons and muffler over face and ears in the coldest winters. He was reared in the Universalist church of which his family had all been members and they built a house for worship near their farm, which they shared with other denominations, reserving it for their use the fourth and fifth Sundays. June 14, 1877, his cousin, Malinda Catherine Parks, of near Coal became his bride. Uncle Billy Lawler performed the ceremony and they began their life together on the farm southeast of Coal, now owned by their daughter, Mrs. J. E. Delozier and her husband. Six children were born to them, one little daughter who never lived, being the only one who does not today survive, and as though to wipe away the sorrow of her loss they took an infant niece, Elsie, whom they reared as their own and who returned to them a daughter's love. Death since had never touched their family circle as the shadows have grown long on life's pathway they have had the blessing of much love. Mr. Pigg was both a farmer and a carpenter. He took pleasure in seeing abundant crops grow from rich soil and learned the secrets of nature she reserves to those who understand her best. He also had the art of the craftsman in his hands and the skill of the musician, for he was a violinist of local repute, and it was at a "Play-party" that the first met his wife. Energetic and capable he builded for his neighbors between farming seasons and after moving to Clinton in 1925 did a good deal of carpenter work. All of his married life he spent on the above mentioned farm until he moved to Clinton, save for four years they spent in Washington, where they had gone thinking to locate near their daughter who was living there. A great student of the bible, from which he could quote long passages, Mr. Pigg, read it until dimming eyes made a thick magnifying glass necessary. Then as more light was shut out, his daughter, Mrs. Delozier came daily to read to him and sometimes in her place his granddaughter, Miss Barbara, for whom he had the tenderest affection. His tenets changed with the years and maturity, until he was bound by no creed but walked in the way of the Truth as he found it in the scriptures. His garden was his hobby and the abundant growth he cultivated there was a source of great pride. What his family did not use, his frugal wife put into cans for winter needs. His skill with his knife and bit of wood passed away many other hours and for every daughter he carved an intricate chair from white hedge wood, fitting them together with particular care for minute details. Many children in the neighborhood had toys he had carved and shaped for them, and exhibited on the square some time ago was a prairie schooner and a yoke of oxen he had carved with meticulous care. He had also a violin or two he had made, selecting the wood with elaborate thought and producing a finished instrument that would have been a credit to any master craftsman. Loved and watched over always by the gentle care of the sweet and devoted wife, he depended on her and took inspiration from her, and like her he was gentle, kindly, considerate and good. At the time of his passing they had the distinction of being the longest married of any native born Missourians of which the Eye had record, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary a year and a half ago. Surviving Mr. Pigg are his widow, daughters, Mrs. J. E. Delozier, and Mrs. Eva Cartledge of Clinton; Mrs. J. D. Donahue of Spokane, Wash., and Mrs. Ed Grossheider of Portland, Ore., who had come two weeks ago, called by his failing heath; Mrs. C. W. Lee of Kansas City and one son, Harry S. Pigg, of Portland, Ore. The funeral services were conducted by a Jehovah Witness from Kansas City, Wednesday at the Consalus & Peck Funeral Home. Interment at Englewood.

She married Silas Edward Pinkley on July 2, 1938, and to this union came one son, Thomas E. Pinkley, and one daughter Patsy R. Goodbrake. In 1964 Clara and Si acquired some land near Berryhill, Oklahoma. Together they built a home where they resided for the next 35 years. Si died February 28, 1998, and Clara continued to live there until she moved to Westwood Nursing Home, Clinton, June 1, 2003. She was a great mother, homemaker and partner. She was at all her kids' events and her home was the hangout for the neighborhood kids. She was famous for her cakes, cookies and especially her homemade candies which she made from scratch and shared with everyone at Christmas time. She was a very talented seamstress which she applied to all types of arts and crafts. Patsy remembers all the wonderful dolls and doll clothes that she made her and also her dresses that were made out of flour sacks. Si could ask for a better wife and partner. She was his fishing buddy. On their 25th wedding anniversary they went on a fishing trip and Clara ended up in the emergency room with a fishing plug in her head. When they left the emergency room, they went back to do more fishing. Clara did not hunt, but she supported Si by making rubber boots for his dogs to wear when they hunted in areas with sand burs. Tom and Patsy still talk about the "ballbag" that she made for his prized hunting dog - who had a particular problem. Si raised hunting dogs and Clara helped. If one of the pups (in her mind) wasn't getting enough milk, she would even bottle feed it. Si wouldn't let her work, but after Tom and Patsy left home she needed something to do. Si agreed that she could go to work, if she went to work after him and go home before he did and did not work weekends. Clara found the perfect job - she went to work for the Tulsa Public School System as a cafeteria worker. Clara liked to travel, but Si did not. Clara joined the Cafeteria Worker's Association and every year she and her friends would attend the annual convention in places like Hawaii, New Orleans, New York and Boston (just to name a few). Clara was a special person and the only person (that we know) that loved being in a nursing home. She shared a room at Westwood Nursing Center with her sister Beulah. They both enjoyed and looked forward to playing Bingo and Clara enjoyed the crafts. Her sister Beulah loved to quilt and one of her last quilts was donated to the Clinton Mid-Day Optimist Club for a fundraising project. Clara took it upon herself to sell tickets at Westwood and the hospital. She sold more tickets than the Optimist Club members. Clara was a very loving, caring and talented person who used these virtues to make and do things for the benefit and/or pleasure of others. She was living proof that you do not need to have money in order to give back to society something of value - your love. She was preceded in death by her husband Silas; two sisters, Luallen Bennett and Beulah Hallum, and two brothers, Ernest and Edgar Gardner. Clara is survived by her son Thomas E. Pinkley; her daughter Patsy R. Goodbrake; seven grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Funeral services were held Thursday, March 2, at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Clinton. Graveside services were Friday, March 3, at the Calvary Cemetery, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Sep 14 2009 - David Eugene Pinkston was born November 18, 1951, in Windsor, the first son of Charles Eugene and Gaynel Louise (Goodrich) Pinkston. David was raised in the Windsor, Ionia and Calhoun areas, graduating from Calhoun High School in the Class of '69. David departed this life on Wednesday, August 19, 2009, at home in his recliner while watching TV with Lucy at his side. His heart just stopped working. As a teenager, he hauled hay during the summer. Later he worked for Williams Rock Company in Clinton. David married the love of his life, Regina Waterworth, in December 1973. His first son, Eric Devon Pinkston, was born in April 1974. David and family then moved to Union and he became an independent over-the-road truck driver. He was very proud of the fact that he owned his own truck. Second son, Anthony Shay, was born in August 1977. David's sons brought him great joy and sorrow as children often do. He shared his love for music with both of his sons. They spent many hours listening to their favorite artists. David had his first heart attack at the age of 39. He did not let that get in the way of living his life. By this time he was driving a Ready Mix truck in the Union area and enjoying life to the fullest! David and Regina divorced and David later moved back to the Calhoun area as his health failed. When David got his own place in Calhoun, his mom decided that David needed a "furry" friend. Sara became one of many dogs that David befriended. David enjoyed the many family dinners at Floyd and Debbie's house, always looking forward to the next barbecue or Christmas dinner. If David was unable to attend the function, it was always someone's duty to bring him a sampling of the food that had been served. Anthony, David's son, died in April 2005. This loss left a huge hole in David's heart. For many years he fought depression brought about because of the loss of Tony. David's next "furry" friend, Lucy, became the friend of a lifetime. Lucy brought so much joy to every day of his life. They shared everything, including food, TV programs and their sleeping arrangements. Lucy has been lost without David's companionship. Granddaughter, Abigail Shay, was born in April 2007. Abby helped fill the void in Grandpa Dave's life. He was proud of this precious little lady. David and family suffered another loss in January 2008 as his mother, Gaynel, died unexpectedly. Lillian "Lilly" Marie was born in February 2008. Again, Grandpa Dave had been given something more to live for as he continued to fight the battle of all his health problems.

David is survived by his son, Eric Pinkston of Republic; father, Charles "Gene" Pinkston of Calhoun; sisters, Toni Vickers and husband Kenny, Debbie Joy and husband Floyd, all of Calhoun, Judy Dodge and husband Tony, Paola, Kansas; brother Jamie Pinkston and wife Rita, Calhoun; granddaughters, Abby and Lilly Pinkston of Republic; nephews and nieces, Jeremy Joy and wife Angie, Jonathan Joy and wife Amanda; Chris Pinkston, Jennifer Smith and husband "Smitty", Stephanie Williams and husband Richard, Michelle Macke, Katie Dodge; special friends, Leonard and Samantha Watson, Dawn Neale, Regina Lause, and a host of other family and friends, along with his dogs, Sara and Lucy.

PINKSTON, Floyd Hendrick
1920-2014
Missouri Veterans Cemetery, Springfield, Greene Co, MO
Floyd Hendrick Pinkston, 94, of Springfield, MO, passed away August 22, 2014 at a local hospital. A native of Henry County, MO, Floyd was the son of Percy R. and Frances (Fanny) Hendrick Pinkston of Clinton, MO, and brother to William Pinkston of Pleasant Hill, MO, and Ruby Pinkston Hull of Clinton. Over the years, Floyd achieved the rank of Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Air Force, was a newspaper publisher and editor, and served in several civilian public information roles for the Air Force. God blessed ‘Pink’ with good health, a bright mind and even a brighter personality over his 94 years, from his birthday, April 15, 1920 until his final ‘promotion’ last Friday. Floyd is survived by Micky Pinkston, his loving wife of 44 years; daughters Marilyn (Jon) Kerrick of Grain Valley, MO, and Nancy (Bill) Doran of Orlando, FL; son Mark (Jennifer) Pinkston of Lee’s Summit, MO; step-son Larry (Karen) Smith of Friendswood, TX; stepdaughter-in-law Sandy Smith of Willow Springs, MO; and brother-in-law Chuck Hull of Clinton. He was also ‘Gramps’ to 12 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings, step-son Jerry Smith, and grandson Chris Smith. Like many of his generation, Floyd’s young years were formed by both the drought and great depression of the 30’s when his family was, according to him, “dirt farmers.” He had the gift of writing, and following high school graduation was employed at the local newspaper, The Clinton Eye, where he worked for six cents an hour. Floyd loved his country and enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps (the forerunner to the Air Force) as a private in April 1941, a full seven months before Pearl Harbor. By May1943, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant. During WWII, Pink served as a cryptographic/message center officer in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia before going to Italy. While in Italy, he unexpectedly ran into his brother who was serving as well--a chance reunion that delighted them both. In November, 1945, Floyd returned to Clinton while finishing out his active duty, and also returned to The Clinton Eye. In 1946, his active duty ended and his career as an Air Force reservist started. Pink progressed at both The Clinton Eye and in the reserves, and he married Mary Virginia Hoppe (three children, Marilyn, Nancy, and Mark). Floyd eventually became editor and co-publisher of The Eye. In the reserves Pink continued to earn promotions, with his final rank being Lieutenant Colonel when his active reserve duty ended in 1963. He concluded his retired reserve service on his birthday in 1980. In 1968, after nearly 24 years of work at the Clinton Eye, Floyd sold the paper and became a civil servant for the Department of Defense, and in late 1969 he married Micky (Mildred) Clegg Smith of Clinton. Floyd served for more than 17 years at Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base in Belton, MO, initially as Public Information Officer for 10th Air Force NORAD. He also held multiple other public information posts over the years, retiring in 1985 as Chief, Public Affairs Officer, 442nd Tactical Fighter Wing and as Base Information Officer. After both Pink and Micky completed their careers, they enjoyed their retirement years in Belton with many activities related to civilian aviation. With Micky as the pilot of their Piper Warrior aircraft, and Pink always occupying the right seat, they traveled the country, often to “fly ins” and in volunteer service for multiple causes. The loving pair moved to Springfield in 1995, and continued to fly and develop life in a new community. This included becoming members at Ridgecrest Baptist Church, enjoying close neighbors and coffee get-togethers. They both delighted in time spent with family and loved to hear the exploits of their grand and great-grandchildren. Floyd took pride in his service to the United States and we appreciate him for it. We take greater delight in that Pink was joyful, healthy and mentally sharp until last week when pneumonia over-took his normal healthy state. His transition to meet Jesus was peaceful and we are thankful. A memorial service celebrating the life of Floyd will be Friday, August 29, at Gorman-Scharpf Funeral Home in Springfield, MO, followed by noon military honors and graveside interment of ashes at the Missouri State Veterans Cemetery.

PINKSTON, Herbert Rev.
1887-1920
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton, MO, Feb 1920 - Three Dead From Accident - A sad accident occurred at the sand hill crossing, northeast of Calhoun, Monday afternoon, when the south bound Katy Limited struck an auto, in which were Rev. Herbert Pinkston and wife and his cousin, Aubrey Pinkston. Another auto was on the opposite side, waiting for the Limited to pass, and as Rev. Pinkston thought they were just waiting for him to cross first, he attempted to hurry across, when the train struck his auto. Mrs. Pinkston was instantly killed and the other two were fatally injured. The Limited brought the two men to Clinton on cots and they were hurried to the Clinton Hospital, Dr. A. A. Gray of Calhoun, accompanying them, who, together with Dr.'s Woltzen and Poague, assisted Dr. Stebbins in doing everything possible for them, but their injuries were such that they only lived a few hours. Rev. Pinkston suffered a fracture of both bones of the right leg below the knee and also severe bruises over the body. He died of internal hemorrhages at 7:45 that evening. He was semi-concious and never regained consciousness. He was 32 years old. Rev. Pinkston had been the beloved pastor of the Calhoun Christian church for several years, and the many friends of both families were grief-stricken to hear of this fatal accident. Rev. Pinkston and wife are survived by one son, Bruce aged about 9 years. His mother, Mrs. Ada Pinkston, also survives, living northeast of Calhoun. Mrs. Pinkston's maiden name was Ina Bruce, and she also leaves her parents, C. C. Bruce and wife, who life north of Calhoun. Aubrey Pinkston was unconscious all the time. He suffered from a fracture of the right femur just below the hip and bruises about the head and body, dying at 9:15 p.m., from blood clots on the brain. He was also 32 years old, and lived on a farm near Calhoun. He leaves a wife and two children - a little daughter and son. The funeral was held at the Calhoun Christian church Wednesday afternoon.

PINKSTON, Jamie Bruce
1953-2010
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, May 25 2010 - Jamie Bruce Pinkston, was born October 24, 1953, in Windsor to Charles E. and Gaynel L. (Goodrich) Pinkston. Jamie was welcomed home by a sister Toni, and brother David. Six years alter sister Debbie was born, then two years later Judy was born. Jamie was raised in Windsor, Ionia, and Calhoun area. He attended high school in Calhoun. As a teenager, Jamie worked odd jobs on the farm. He owned a horse named Satin, who was his animal soul-mate. Sometimes they both slept while traveling. Other times Jamie read while Satin took them to their destination. Jamie visited all 48 continental states, many times riding shotgun with Dad in the semi-truck; other times just thumbing a ride to wherever he could go. Many adjectives describe Jamie, but free-spirited is probably the most applicable. Jamie met his first wife in Salt Lake City, Utah. To this union two children were born, Christopher James and Jennifer Dawn. After moving back to Calhoun, Jamie was later divorced from his first wife. Chris went back to Salt Lake City with his mom and Jennifer stayed with Jamie. Grandma Gaynel helped raise Jennifer. In 1994 Jamie met Rita Bush, later marrying her in October 1995. Their marriage began while living in Arkansas, later moving back to the Calhoun area. Rita's family opened their arms and welcomed Jamie as just another family member. Rita's children, Tracy and Kevin, thought of Jamie as another father. Tracy and Kevin's father Tony, was also a very good friend to Jamie. Jamie was a voracious reader. His interests varied from a telephone book, road atlas or encyclopedia to novels by Louis L'Amour, JRR Tolkien, Arthur C. Clark or Stephen King. Both his love for reading and music varied from A to Z and had no boundaries. Fishing was a favorite hobby that Pa shared with grandsons Lee and Logan. With Kiel he shared his love of music. Jamie had limited visits with his other four grandchildren, Shelby, Robert, Damon and Kamilla, due to them living so far away. Jamie was diagnosed with lung cancer the same year his mother died. This was an especially hard year for him due to the many trips to Columbia for chemo, radiation and also the natural grieving of his mother. Stoic would be another appropriate adjective describing Jamie - he shed very few tears when he learned of his diagnosis. All he could say was that he needed to live so that he could take care of Rita. And live he did, for another two and a half years. Jamie was very optimistic that he could beat this disease and live to take care of Rita. Jamie lost this battle on Wednesday evening, April 21, 2010, at his home, surrounded by wife Rita, sisters, Toni and Debbie; friends, Leonard Watson and Claude Robertson; stepson Kevin and his girlfriend Michelle. Jamie took his last breath with Rita holding him in her arms, telling him how much she loved him. Jamie was preceded in death by his grandparents Si and Bennie Goodrich; mother Gaynel Mills; nephew Anthony Pinkston, and brother David Pinkston. Surviving are wife Rita Pinkston; father Gene Pinkston; sisters, Toni (Kenny) Vickers, Debbie (Floyd) Joy, Judy (Tony) Dodge; children, Chris and Jennifer; stepchildren, Tracy and Kevin; grandchildren, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and many other friends and relatives. Memorial services were held at the United Methodist Church, Calhoun, on Sunday, April 25.

POAGUE, Henry Fewel
1868-1939
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Henry F. Poague, well known attorney in Clinton and Henry County for almost a half century, died at his home, 207 North Washington street, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 18, 1939. Mr. Poague, whose health had not been good the past few years, contracted a cold October 12, which had help him at home several days. Neither he nor his family realized that his condition was serious until late Wednesday afternoon, when about 3:45 a blood clot formed and death laid its hand on the shoulder of the devoted father, fond husband and good citizen. His death was without pain or suffering and his family was with him, as he would have wished, for one of the finest things in his life, that was replete with many admirable traits, was the great esteem in which he was held by his family and the pride and pleasure he found in his children. Henry Fewel Poague, son of Kentucky parents who came to Missouri in 1858, settling in Benton County, after short residences in Lafayette and Johnson counties, where they were substantial farmers, was born March 17, 1868, near Ft. Lyon in Benton Co. As a boy about 16, he left school to help manage the farm of his widowed mother. He was ambitious to continue his schooling and having settled his mind on the law, saved his means to that end and in 1892 graduated from the law school of the Missouri University and passed his state bar examinations. Returning to Benton County, he resumed farming for a year, after which he came with his beloved brother, the late Dr. S. A. Poague, to Henry County and settled in Clinton. They began their professional practices side by side, and this close fraternal bond was broken by the death of Dr. Poague in 1935. August 25, 1895, Mr. Poague and Miss Hattie Haysler, daughter of C. H. Haysler, prominent Clintonian and business man, were married and established their home in Clinton. She survives with their two children, Judge Haysler Allen Poague and Mrs. R. S. Hollingsworth of Clinton, also two grandchildren, Miss Peggy Poague and little Ann Hollingsworth; also two brothers, Fred Poague of Greeley, Colo.; Will R. Poague; one sister, Mrs. Lawrence Crotty, of Clinton. Mr. Poague was an ardent and unswerving Democrat, who moulded many opinions of those he contacted and offered wise counsel in party politics. For many years he was the country chairman of his party and also Democratic chairman of the Sixth Congressional and the 29th Judicial District. For four terms, he served his county as prosecuting attorney, meting out justice with office and wisdom and tempering always the stern interpretations of the law by his dominant humanity, whenever it was possible, especially toward young offenders. He realized the crippling burden of debt carried by Henry County in the heavy railroad bonds that had drained their surplus for years. So advising with the county court he worked out a financial plan whereby the bonds might be retired, and no man felt more satisfaction in that historic bonfire, when the bonds were burned, after payment, than he. But farther reaching still was the effecting of his financing idea, for from it grew the budget system of Henry County. It was further said by various officers in the state that he could handle more prosecutions with better success and less criminal cost than any man holding the office, yet was brief and rigorous at all times. Mr. Poague was also active in other phases of community life. He was a member of the Christian Church, a Mason, and held memberships in the W.O.W. and Modern Woodmen. For many years in addition to his law practice, Mr. Poague handled much real estate, and over a long period was associated in these transactions with Frank Carter, now living in the Rio Grande Valley,m Texas. He was a man of excellent business judgement and through the years accumulated considerable property. An able lawyer and fine counsellor, Henry Poague was ever known as a kindly, charitable man, moderate of speech and softly spoken, ready to excuse his fellowman for any shortcoming or foible and was generously disposed toward all. The flag at the courthouse was at half mast in honor of Mr. Poague Friday and funeral services were at the Christian Church on Friday.

POAGUE, Samuel Allen Dr.
1865-1935
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - With the passing of Dr. S. A. Poague at his home on East Clinton street Saturday night, at 7:40, the life thread of the oldest and one of the best loved doctors of the community was cut. He had been confined to his bed for the past two weeks and continued to gradually lose strength and consciousness until he slipped away from his children, brothers, sister and other relatives who were there in silent sorrow to attest the unifying love that marks their family. Dr. Poague had not been well since the motor car accident of January 28, 1934, on the highway halfway between Montrose and Deepwater, when his wife was killed and he seriously hurt. After two weeks in bed at that time, he rallied and was up again, at his office and practiced as before but the hurt coupled together with the grief he bore were too much for his strength and years and he gradually failed until death claimed him Saturday. Samuel Allen Poague was born May 10, 1865, near Ft. Lyon, Benton County, of a fine line of ancestry that gave him as a rightful heritage splendid qualities of character and mind that made him the upright citizen whose death is deeply felt in both Clinton and Henry County. His parents were Eliza Christian Keller and George Samuel Poague of Ashland, Ky., who was a son of Nancy Allen Frame and Thomas Hoge Poague, son of Major George Poague, born in Augusta County, Virginia, descendant of General John Poague born in Ireland, 1726, who when coming to America settled near Staunton, Virginia. Dr. Poague, fourth son of his parents, was the oldest boy at home when his father died but he had made up his mind to become a doctor and with this purpose definitely fixed started as a lad of seventeen on his university course at Columbia, Mo. After his first winter he taught the next at Lincoln, Benton County, going back to the State University and then teaching a year at Roseland, before resuming his studies and finishing at Columbia. He then went to St. Louis to the Marian Sims Medical School, now a part of the St. Louis University, where he completed his medical education. Selecting Clinton as a town with a future he came here in the fall of 1891 and began his practice as a partner of the late Dr. Holcomb. They had their office in the Britts building on Franklin street across from the Cozart. Not long after this his mother, sister, Hattie, and brother, William Rhea, came to Clinton and made their home on the Blackford property on the hill, two blocks east of the old Barnhart nurseries. Here and later on East Ohio Dr. Poague also lived until his marriage June 1, 1904, to Ethel Edna Baugh in St. Louis. For a year they made their home over the old diamond block drug store, then he bought the frame cottage at 105 East Clinton street where they continued to live, remodelling it into the handsome English style home it is today. Here their two children, Martha Christina, now Mrs. James Omer Smith and Henry Frederick, were born and reared and now make their home. Dr. Poague was an indulgent father, providing liberally for his children in whom he took great pleasure and pride. Older residents will recall when he, after Dr. Holcomb's death, had his office over Ed Neal's drug store on the east side of the square and later with the late Dr. B. B. Barr on the second floor of the building, north side square occupied today by the J. L. Goss Clothing Company. After some years he moved to the diamond block where he shared his office rooms with the late Dr. Gibbins and managed the Diamond block Drug and Mercantile Company, a joint enterprise with his brother, Henry Poague, which included the old Poague drug store, fountain and large jewelry stock; a second building east with groceries, work clothes and general merchandise; and a third room with pianos, musical instruments and the first Victrolas ever sold in town while on the curb outside was also the first gasoline pump in Clinton. This business was dissolved and in 1918 Dr. Poague bought a building on the south side of the square to which he moved his drug store and established his office on the second floor. Here his son, Henry Frederick Poague was associated with him until they sold out to Mrs. Webb in 1930. In the death of this good doctor, passes a type of the old fashioned country physician whose practice necessitated countless trips, day or night, on all kinds of roads in any sort of weather. And when the call came, the house was never too humble, the distance too great or night too bad for him to respond and give the aid only the beloved family physician could render. He was gentle and kind with understanding sympathy for the suffering he labored most of his life to alleviate. He was unselfish and generous, often asking little or nothing for services rendered, but giving them with like consideration for all. Of his kind acts for the poor and unfortunate many are known and more have passed with him into silence but countless grateful hearts remain to attest his loving kindness. He belonged to the Christian church and the Modern Woodmen; and was for some years a member of the school board; and served two terms as mayor, 1928-32, being chosen to represent his party as the strongest candidate it boasted. He was nominated and then informed of the action by his party, and true to its expectations carried it to success. His memory will ever be green in the hearts of his fellowmen and family for the good he did lives after him. He is survived by his daughter, Mrs. James Omer Smith; his son, Henry Frederick Poague; an only sister, Mrs. Lawrence Crotty; two brothers, Henry Fewel Poague and William Rhea Poague, all of Clinton, and one older brother, Frederick Cary Poague, of Greeley, Colo., who was not able to attend the funeral service; also Tommy Poague of Clinton, a member of the family since a young child.

POAGUE, Thomas Cude
1886-1936
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Henry County Scrapbook - Tommie Poague, as he was familiarly known to the whole community, reached the close of his earthly journey, Easter Sunday, April 12, at 2:20 p.m. Monday, April 6th, about 7 p.m. he was stricken with a blood clot on the brain and his entire right side was paralyzed. For two days he remained unconscious, then seemed to rally, and recognized members of his family and though he was unable to speak, showed by his eyes and movements of the left hand the gratitude he felt for their ministrations and the love he bore them all. His strength gradually became less and he sank into oblivion with ease and without pain. Thomas Cude Poague was born December 13, 1886, at Ft. Smith, Ark., and in January 1893, was adopted by Mrs. Eliza C. Poague, making his home on the Poague farm in eastern Henry and western Benton counties, the line running through the farm. He was educated in the Clinton schools and became so endeared to all the family of his adoption by his industry, pleasant disposition and amenable nature, that he was like a real brother to his foster sister and brothers. October 28, 1914, he and Miss Ruth Greenhalge were united in marriage. Theirs was a perfect union, each unselfishly devoted to the other and with all interests and pleasures the same. Tom Poague was one of those exceptional characters who radiated to the world the sunshine that was always in his heart. He shared the joy he felt in every day living with each person he contacted and left that person better for the association. He knew the art of being happy today, he did not wait until tomorrow. From the day he first came to Clinton with his sick mother, who was on her way to her childhood home in Indiana, but who died within two weeks, leaving the little lad homeless, his life was a blessing to all who shared theirs with him. His devotion to "Grandma" Poague was beautiful to see and the warmth of his sunny soul and genuine smile illuminated his own life and reflected itself in that of others. Being a natural mechanic, Tom first found work with the Clinton Gas and Water company, in the gas department, where he was ever courteous and efficient. Following a change in ownership he went into the plumbing business and by his conscientious and excellent work was depended upon by many home owners to do all their plumbing. In 1930 he bought a home site south of Clinton on Highway 13, and each year he and his wife added some improvement to the pretty cottage they erected there, or to the yard to make it more home like and comfortable. Ever industrious and hard working he filled all his waking hours with activity, going beyond his strength in the opinion of his doctors. He was a member of the Franklin street Methodist Church and his life extolled his Christian character. He belonged to the W.O.W. fraternal order, where he will also be greatly missed. He is survived by his widow, H. F. and w. R. Poague and Mrs. Lawrence Crotty, all of Clinton. The funeral services were conducted at the Franklin Street Methodist Church on Tuesday. Consalus and Peck in charge.

POLLOCK, Laura Ellen POLLOCK
1854-1937
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. W. T. Pollock, mother of Miss Mary Pollock, dear and gracious little old lady, who had made her home in Clinton almost a quarter of a century and had lived well into her 83rd year, went out to meet her Maker at 4:35 a. m. Wednesday, October 13, with the serene smile of the early dawn upon her gentle face. She had been delicate for some years but six months ago became confined to her bed from which she never rose, held by age and general infirmities. Last Friday however she contracted bronchial pneumonia and never rallied. Her daughter, Miss Mary Pollock, practical nurse, has been constantly at her side, having given up her work as office assistant for Dr. R. S. Hollingsworth five months ago and every ministration possible she gladly gave, for between them was the beautiful tie that fond mother and daughter alone can share. Laura Ellen Pollock was born June 12, 1854, at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. At the close of the War Between the States her parents came to La Grange, Mo., where Mr. Pollock was a horticulturist. Here their daughter grew to attractive girlhood, went to school and in the course of time met her future husband of the same name as her parents, yet not a kinsman. They were married June 12, 1889, and went to Emporia, Kans., to make their first home, where Mr. Pollock was engaged in the mercantile business. There they lived until her parents became ill and they moved back to La Grange to run the nurseries. Three children were given them, a little daughter, who died in infancy, Homer M., now of Kansas City, Kans., and Miss Mary Pollock of the home. Mr. Pollack, being an invalid from arthritis and unable to continue his work, the family having friends here, removed to Clinton 23 years ago and in June 1925, Mr. Pollock died, when the bond between mother and daughter became stronger, Mrs. Pollock was the last of her family, so her son and daughter are the last of the line. Mrs. Pollock was converted and joined the First M. E. church as a girl of 12 and the light of Christianity guided her entire life, though after the passing of her husband she was never again active in the church. She was a home body, interested in the things of her own fireside and rooftree, patient and devoted to her children, an expert needlewoman who made many lovely quilts and did fine fancy work, an excellent cook, a good neighbor, always thinking of others before herself. She realized the end was at hand and with tender solicitude planned all things she could to make it easier for her daughter when the time of separation should be reached. The funeral services, simple by her request, will be conducted Thursday at the home. The body will rest in Englewood. consalus and Peck in charge.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Betty L. Price, 79, Clinton, died Tuesday, July 6, 1999, at Research Medical Center, Kansas City. She was born to Carl and Florence Miller on May 18, 1920, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She had a brother, Robert, who preceded her in death. She graduated from Tom Tom Central High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and then went on to art school at Cincinnati Art Academy where she also graduated. During that time she took up modeling. Upon graduating from art school she returned to her hometown where her career in fashion art and modeling continued to grow. She became art director for Vandever's and also model for many ads. She was responsible for their company receiving many outstanding awards for several years. Her ads were in many newspapers across the country. She worked in big fashion companies such as Brown-Duncan, Cincinnati, Ohio; Vandever's, Tulsa, Oklahoma; Dillard's Department Stores, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Ft. Worth, Texas, and others, including Cline Department Store in Kansas City. Betty married L.R. "Bud" Price on March 27, 1943, In Tulsa, Oklahoma. By the early 50s they moved to Clinton, where they adopted three children, Charles R. Price, Deborah L. Hestand and Pamela S. Charles. After many years, the marriage was dissolved and she never remarried. She then moved back to Tulsa. While she was away her family grew and God blessed her with eight grandchildren. Because of her love for artwork she went back to work in fashion art for Dillard's department stores in Tulsa for many years. The company closed down the advertising department in Tulsa and transferred it to the Ft. Worth/Dallas department. She was asked to make the move with the company. Leaving her hometown was a very hard move for her, but she wanted to draw. She worked for them until her health failed and could no longer complete the fast-pace newspaper deadlines. At that point she moved back to Clinton, but her love for art never stopped. She was a very private person and many would say a loner. She suffered many heartaches and tragedies, but she came to know God and her world began to change. Her love for others grew and her willingness to help others was outstanding. She was always there to pick up the neighbor's nightly paper, carry their laundry or pick up a carton of milk or bread at the store. You also might find her at the senior center carrying trays of food for people who couldn't. This was the beginning of her many hours of services to others. She became a "Pink Lady" for the Golden Valley Hospital Auxiliary. Her time with them was shortened because of her heart problems, but she still served 1,105 hours. This opportunity gave her a real sense of giving that couldn't be replaced. Betty felt lost when she could no longer do her work, but she soon picked up the paintbrush again. That's when the real giving took place. Through her artwork you saw the beauty in her, her love for others and her willingness to share. She did many portraits of many individuals as well as for her church and the hospital auxiliary. Through God he gave Betty a precious talent, which she in return gave to all of us. Betty is survived by one son, Charles R. Price and wife, Kathy, Eldon; two daughters, Pam Charles and husband, Frankie, Clinton, and Debbie L. Hestand and husband, John, Clinton: one niece, Luanne Crow, and one nephew, William Miller. Funeral services were held at the Vansant-Mills Chapel on Saturday, July 10. Burial was in the Clinton Memory Garden Cemetery.

PRICE, Martha E. "Mattie"
1852-1936
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Miss Martha Price died her home, four and a half miles northwest of Clinton, at 9:30 a. m. Saturday, October 17. Since the death about two weeks ago of her sister, the late Mrs. William C. Stollings, her prayers had been that she would soon join her, as she had been in ill health the past summer, and suffered from rheumatism several years. Martha E. Price, daughter of Robert M. and Jane Dishman Price, was born near Abingdon, Virginia, April 13, 1852. At the close of the Civil War she came with her parents to Henry County Missouri, where, with the exception of a few years, she has since resided. During her girlhood she united with the Christian church and as long as her health permitted, was a faithful attendant, always trying to walk in the footsteps of the Master whom she loved. When but ten years of age she won a Bible in Sunday school for memorizing Bible verses. She subsequently won two others in the same way. These Bibles, now worn with age and daily use, were treasured throughout her life, and their contents accepted as her daily guide. She was kind in the home, faithful to friends, sincere and earnest in the service of the Heavenly Father. Keenly appreciative of the many acts of kindness shown her by her neighbors, enjoying to the fullest their visits, she often said: "God bless them for their goodness to us." There was ever a strong bond of affection between the members of the family, and as one by one they were called home, and only she and her sister, Mrs. Stollings, were left, it was touching to see how they clung to each other to the last, this beloved sister preceding her in death a little more than two weeks. After the sister's passing, "Aunt Mattie," as she was lovingly called, often expressed the desire to "go home" and peacefully awaited the summons, speaking of her going as calmly as though she were going to a neighbor's home. "Aunt Mattie" leaves several nephews and nieces, and many friends who will miss her, but they an feel that she is now safe from the sorrows and sufferings of this world and is happy in her eternal home with those she loved. Funeral services were held at Consalus & Peck funeral home Sunday afternoon.

PRICE, Robert M.
1816-1887
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO Jan 8 1887 - We are sorry to announce the death of Robert M. Price, one of our oldest and most-respected citizens, at the home of his son Wm. F., at 5 o'clock last Sabbath morning. He was quiet and retiring in his disposition, his end was peaceful and happy - having been for 45 years a member of the Christian Church. He was a native of Washington county, Southwest Va., and was 71. His occupation was farming and he was successful, always affording his family an abundant living and at least some of the advantages of education. In 1834, when 18, he married Miss Jane Dishman and they had eleven children, as follows: Elkane, died in infancy; Robert M., died of a wound received in the army; George W., died at 20 at the University of Kentucky; Ota H., died about 17; Thomas C. died about 17; children now living are Mrs. Eversole, Virginia; Daniel E., E. O., Wm. F., Mrs. Stollings and Miss Mattie E., all of Clinton and vicinity. Mr. Price and family came to Clinton about 1867 and part of the family has resided here since. In 1873, he, with wife and several children, went back to Virginia but they returned last April and, with the exception of Mrs. Eversole, all were again united in Clinton and Henry County. On the breaking out of the late war, four of his sons, Robert M., Daniel E., E. O., and William F., joined the confederate army and all were in active service. In 1862, Emory and Daniel, having both been taken down with fever, were removed to Rockbridge Alum, a watering place in the celebrated Rockbridge county, VA. While lying sick here, their father came to visit and care for them and it was while thus engaged, in unremitting watchfulness and care, that he himself was stricken with fever, and sustained those injuries which left him a cripple and from which he never recovered. William and Emory were both at the Battle of Gettysburg. Here Emory was disabled by the loss of an arm and returned home and William continued in active service and only returned when Gen. Lee surrendered at Appomattox courthouse. In 1864, Robert was severely wounded at the battle of Moorfield, on the south branch of the Potomac river, W., Va. While prostrated here, his brother, E. O. left home to go to his assistance, and remained with him till the close of the war, he could not with safety be taken home before that time. Even now, the brothers, one of them in a precarious condition, were 300 miles from home, it was a mountainous region, the country had been devastated and impoverished, and the railroads and bridges broken up. The Confederate money, of which they had plenty, was utterly useless and the task which devolved on the well brother, E. O., on getting the sick one home, was a Herculean one. At certain points, he was at his wit's end and could see no help. Then, in his extremity, he on two occasions, applied to Federal authorities, Gen. Debaugh, post commander at Stauton, and one to Gen. Schofield, at Lynchburg, honestly telling them that he was a Confederate soldier. Both, without the least hesitation, rendered him all necessary aid - the former furnished him with an ambulance; the latter took him and his brother into a special car with himself and suite and carried them to a desired station on the road and neither charged a cent for the service. The youngest brother, George W., was a pioneer of the family in coming to Clinton. He came alone in 1866, a year in advance of the rest, traveling in company with the family of Stephen Loyd. On arriving in Clinton, he entered the office of Sellers Bros., publishers of the Clinton Advocate; but having the gospel ministry in view, and desiring to give himself the best advantages, and to excel in his chosen profession, he soon left Clinton and entered, as already stated, the University of Kentucky. Mr. Price's family have always been distinguished for their harmony and helpfulness to one another. Daniel E. is now a successful farmer in our county. Wm. F. remains at home, the stay of the family, and E. O. is the present popular and efficient treasurer of Henry County, having just entered on the seventh year of his service in that capacity.

Her mother, Mrs. G. Y. Salmon, arrived but a few minutes before. Monday morning the remains arrived and were taken to the residence of Dr. G. Y. Salmon and at three, the funeral was preached by Dr. Moad at the C. P. Church, after which all that was mortal of Mrs. Fannie Prince was laid to rest in Englewood.

1856-1936

Clinton MO, Jan 1936 - R. A. Prosise, beloved and honored throughout Henry county and one of Brownington's most prominent citizens, died at 5 a.m., Thursday, January 9, at the home where he had lived the past 28 years. He had been in declining health the past three years, his trouble being diabetes, and the last six months he was dangerously ill and suffered intense pain. Robert Alexander Prosise was born December 5, 1856, on the banks of the beautiful Clinch River at Clinton, Tenn. He grew to splendid manhood here and January 7, 1885, was united in marriage to Miss Emma C. White of Knoxville. The day of his marriage, he and his bride left Tennessee for Missouri, making their home first on a farm near Coal in Henry County. Later they moved to Mt. Zion and it was here that his wife died 35 years ago. Their only son, Thomas Dudley, died the same year as his mother and both were buried in Mt. Zion cemetery. later the bodies were removed to beautiful Maplewood Cemetery, south of Brownington. By this first wife, Mr. Prosise also had four daughters who survive: Mrs. Ella Bonwell, Detroit, Mich; Mrs. Wray Shadwell, Clinton; Mrs. Perce Bolinger, Coal; Mrs. Russell McElwee, Kansas City. Many years after the death of his wife, he returned to his childhood home for a visit and there met Miss Effie Hill of Knoxville. About a year later, he returned to Tennessee and August 23, 1917, he and Miss Hill were married. Twenty-eight years ago Mr. Prosise went to Brownington where he built the Brownington telephone exchange, which he owned and operated since, with the happy and untiring assistance of his wife since their marriage. The Brownington exchange operates in the town and has a toll line to Mt. Zion. It is also connected with the Bell and United Telephone systems for long distance calls. The exchange was noted for its outstanding efficiency as all service was prompt and willing. In all this work, Mrs. Prosise was closely associated with her husband, and she shouldered her full share of the responsibility on keeping the lines always in good shape and ready for use. In his earlier maturity, Mr. Prosise attended the Presbyterian Church, but in later years he went to the Christian Church as his wife joined it when she came to Brownington. He supported the church and its work in many ways. The great outdoors held a lifelong fascination for Mr. Prosise, and he was never more contented than when he was tramping the countryside with a dog and his gun or with a rod and line. He had a cabin on the Osage where he made frequent trips to hunt and fish and he was one of the most active and enthusiastic members of the Henry County Fox hunters Association. Mr. Prosise was interested in anything that meant the progress of his community. He was especially active in getting good roads to Brownington and one of his last acts along this line was to use his influence in getting the farm-to-market road which has just been completed from Brownington to highway 13, south of Deepwater. A jovial, friendly man, Mr. Prosise was known over the entire county and in many communities outside the county, and nearly everyone he met was added to his list of friends. Surviving Mr. Prosise besides his wife, who was ever a devoted and faithful companion, are his four daughters, also seven grandchildren, Chester and Glenn Smith of the U.S. Navy at San Diego, Calif; Franklin and Kathryn Shadwell, Clinton; Judson McElwee, Kansas City; Juanita Bonwell, Detroit; P.

Mrs. August Pruessner died at 12:30 a.m. May 13, 1939, at their home, 12 miles north of Clinton. Through her extended illness, she was cheerful and patient and as she waited for her body to grow stronger, she planned the numerous tasks she would again take up when she got well. She was in Clinton doing her usual trading May 5, but after rising the following day, was seized by intensive agony; returned to her bed and did not again rise. Death was due to a malignant disease. During the week she was bedfast, her devoted husband, children and grandchildren were constantly at her bedside, doing all possible to brighten her days and ease her suffering as she had so often done in ministering to others.

She was a tower of strength to those in time of trouble or sorrow, and as she went about doing good, she did not forget to teach this to her children and grandchildren, as they kept busy with their extensive farming operations and livestock raising. Mr. Pruessner owned over 1,000 acres of land near Leesville, where they lived 33 years and reared their children. Mr. and Mrs. Pruessner were congenial and devoted, ever youthful in spirit with their children, teaching them happiness and holding before them a singleness of purpose to cement family ties with love for one another and consecration to the Master. Mrs. Pruessner sought the things of life that cannot be bought; the devotion of her family which was hers wholeheartedly; beauty from her flowers; a well kept garden with its rich yielding store; success with her highly bred flock of English White Leghorn chickens.

1898-1939
Parks Chapel Cemetery, Leesville Twp, Henry Co, MO
Oscar Pruessner of Leesville died about 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 3, 1939, following a sudden attack of what was thought to be asthma with which he had suffered some time, although he had had no spells this winter. Saturday, when in the throes of the attack, he told his wife he was dying. He had just returned from a second look at his crops, the tending of which had been his life's keenest enjoyment, when he was struck with the attack. He called his wife, who with their daughter-in-law, Mrs. Wayne Pruessner, went to him, helped him on their porch and eased the pain as much as possible. While Mrs. Wayne Pruessner went for her husband in a field, the suffering man talked with his beloved wife before he slipped into the shadowy realms of eternity. Saturday morning Mr. Pruessner had talked with his son, Paul, while viewing the crops, and told him his physician said he had but a few more days on earth and requested that he take good care of Mrs. Pruessner, to whom Mr. Pruessner was most devoted. A short time later, he visited a neighbor, Hobart Sell, telling him that his time here was limited, then returned home again to look on the fields. His wife was unaware that he was worse than usual; did not know he had consulted a physician and when the last attack came as he was entering their front yard, she believed he would recover. She is prostrate with grief at their home. Oscar Sherman Pruessner was born July 27, 1898, in Benton County, Missouri, a son of August William and Martha Fisher Pruessner, and moved with them when about seven years old to the home where he had since lived. He was united in marriage to Miss Violet Vern Puckett, December 7, 1919, and to this union six children were born, all of whom are left to comfort their mother: Wayne, Junior, Paul, Billy, Lowell Dean and the little two-year-old daughter he loved so dearly, Isla Vern, all of the home. He also leaves one daughter-in-law, Mrs. Wayne Pruessner; his father, August William Pruessner, near Quarles; one brother, Albert Pruessner, near Chilhowee; two sisters, Mrs. Ralph Knoles, Higginsville, Mo., and Mrs. Leonard Moree, Clinton. Mr. Pruessner was converted and joined the Tebo Church at an early age and had since remained a faithful member. He was a true neighbor, for not only to those on adjacent farms, but also to those in need did he render kindness. He was a good husband and father for he dearly loved his wife, children and home; nothing was too good for them in his estimation, and their welfare ever came foremost with him. The high esteem in which he was held was evinced in the steady stream of neighbors and friends who poured into the house after they heard of his death, also in the crowd of over 400 which overflowed the Tebo Church for the last rites. He was ever true to his heritage, with a deep love for the farm and raising livestock, and after his parents moved to another community he continued to live on the homeplace successfully tilling the acres he had loved from childhood. Funeral services were conducted at Tebo on Sunday by Rev. Hugh Sperry, who three weeks before had conducted like rites for deceased's mother. Burial at Tebo.

PUMPHREY, John Wesley
1897-1921
Englewood Cemetery (P), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Last Friday morning at 8:15 the New Day had come for John Wesley Pumphrey, for then he left his body of clay and went to the City Beautiful, away from the weary months and days of pain, for it was about a year ago he first became ill and had been sick all that time. The end came peaceably that morning and it seemed fitting that one in the morning time of life should pass to the Great Beyond in the early hours of the day. He was born at Montrose, May 6, 1897, being 24 years, 3 months and 28 days old. When a boy he moved with his parents to Clinton and this had been his home since with the exception of the several months he served in the army during the World War, he being on the sea enroute to France when the armistice was signed. March 7, 1920, he married Miss Irene Clark. Life seemed to offer much for this happy young couple, as they were both industrious and loved to work and play together. They went to a farm east of Clinton, but after only about six months he became ill. Then both he, his wife and his parents did everything to restore him to health. His father took him to another climate but as no apparent good seemed to come of it, he returned and skilled physicians were employed. at times he seemed to improve and hopes were entertained for his recovery but his constitution proved too frail. He was converted in the Wade Johnson Tabernacle meetings in the fall of 1917 and later united with the Baptist church. He was a good Christian boy and a faithful attendant at Sunday school, B.Y.P.U. and church. He was quiet by nature, but was always ready with a smiling face to greet his friends. We know he is enjoying the Heavenly Home, but it seems very hard to have to give him up to the young wife as she has a baby son Harry C. Pumphrey, who is 8 months and 5 days old who will miss the council of a wise father. His memory will be treasured in the little wife's heart and her little boy will always be taught to love his daddy, who is awaiting their coming on the other side. He also leaves his parents Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Pumphrey, one brother George, and one sister Miss Flora Pumphrey, all at home. The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist church Sunday afternoon, after which he was laid in Englewood.
