QUARLES, Benjamin Lampton
1826-1902
Swindle Cemetery, Shawnee Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Jul 12 1902 - Pioneer Passes Away - "B. L. Quarles is dead" was the sad intelligence conveyed to the citizens downtown Friday morning. His spirit was wafted to that home on high at 8:40 Thursday night July 10 and the entire community, wife and children, are left desolate. He had been in failing health since Dec. 7, 1900 when he suffered a stroke of paralysis but was able to be about the house until the 30th of last March when he had a second stroke and since that time has been bedfast. Altho his sufferings at times were unbearable, he was patient and seldom complained tho it was hard to lay aside his business duties, as he was of an active and industrious temperament. Here indeed can be said: "A good man gone." Benjamin Lampton Quarles was born in Overton county, Tenn., May 6, 1826. In 1835, when but a lad of nine, he moved with his parents to Monroe County, Mo. where he was reared and educated. In 1851, he engaged in the mercantile business for himself in Madison, Mo. where for two and one-half years he did a successful business. In 1854, he came to Henry County, where until 1859, he farmed and in the same year was elected county clerk, serving two years. In 1862, he enlisted in the confederate army in Co. K, Second Missouri Cavalry, which company acted as Price's body guard and in which he was second lieutenant. He served until June 1865, when he returned to this city and held a clerkship until the fall of 1869, when he engaged in business for himself and remained in same until elected county clerk in 1874, serving four years. In 1879, he was appointed to fill out an unexpired term as circuit clerk and at the close of that office, in 1880, was elected and served until 1883, when he was again chosen for county clerk. He always made a faithful and conscientious officer, helping the poor by kind, charitable acts. Mr. Quarles was married May 3, 1849 to Miss Sarah E. Young, a Kentuckian whose death occurred in 1852. He was again married March 17, 1853 to Miss Emily Swindell of Monroe County. To them were born five children, three still surviving - Mrs. J. L. Riggins of Weatherford, Texas; Mrs. L. J. Myers of Chicago, and J. E. Quarles of Mineral Wells, Texas. His two daughters were at his bedside but his son was unable to be here at the time of his death, but arrived in time for the funeral. He united with the M. E. Church when but a boy but when he came here being no church of that denomination, he joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and has been an elder for a number of years. It was a great privation for him to be unable to attend services and he occasionally told his wife, in a joking way, while lying in bed, that they had better get ready and go to church. He has been a prominent member of the Masonic order since the age of 21 and helped organize nearly every lodge around this place. Laid to rest in the family graveyard at Huntingdale.

QUARLES, John Knox Polk
1844-1920
Englewood Cemetery (Q), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Polk Quarles, for whom Quarles north of Clinton was named, died at his room in the Centre Block on the west side of the square about midnight Monday night. His friends, J. M. Spangler and Judge J. B. Redford, were at his bedside ministering to his last earthly wants when the end came. He had been feeling badly about two weeks but only away from his work about a week and bedfast only since Saturday. He was born near Florida, MO, Oct 15, 1844. He came to Henry county in 1874 and settled near Huntingdale. Quarles north of Clinton was named for his family and he is the last one of his family to die. For some time he worked in a Huntingdale store, then about 45 years ago he came to Clinton and was employed as a deputy in the court house. Since then it has been continuous public work. He had never been elected to an office, but during all those years, had held a deputyship or an appointive office in the court house on account of his efficiency. He had served as a deputy in every office in the court house except in the prosecuting attorney's office. He understood every department. He would have made a splendid judge, as he had a clear insight into human nature and his judgement was always fair and just. From the time of his death until his burial the flag was at half mast above the courthouse, as there was real grief among his fellow workers for this faithful servant. The funeral service was beautiful and fittingly held on the court house lawn at the door of his real home--his place of service, Wednesday afternoon. His body was taken to Englewood for burial. He possessed a sense of humor that is seldom met with. He would add a touch of fun to most common place experiences. If he would have cultivated it, he would have won fame such as did his first cousin, Samuel Clemens, Missouri's Mark Twain. Among his possessions were found a postal card from this cousin, Samuel Clemens, with a picture of the Memorial Statue of Mark Twain, erected in Florida, MO.

QUIGLEY, Herb

Laurel Oak Cemetery (Q), Windsor, Henry Co, MO

He was born November 26, 1932, in Branch, Mo., the son of Hewie Edgar Quigley and Lillie Mae (Woolery) Quigley. On July 8, 1953 in Windsor, he married Lois Marie Kramer and she survives of the home. Herb Quigley had a wide range of interests. He worked as a police officer, farmed, and owned a consignment shop in Windsor for a number of years. He spent a few years in residential construction, building several homes in Windsor. He built the home that he and Lois shared for 55 years. After retiring from his business, H & L Discount, he filled his days by caring for his grandchildren and tinkering with small engine repair. Herb's hobbies varied outside of work as well. He loved music and dancing. He enjoyed playing the guitar and harmonica as well as singing. He took pride in maintaining his yard. Herb and Lois shared an enthusiasm for bowling. They bowled in leagues and traveled to tournaments together. The entire family liked bowling together on occasion, and Herb was always ready with tips and suggestions for how others could stand, aim, and release the ball. Herb's grandchildren can attest that willing listeners frequently benefited from his bowling advice. Herb's advice was not limited to bowling, but also encompassed fishing, finances, dog training, deck building, and every other topic that husbands, fathers, and grandfathers typically expound upon. Whatever the situation or occasion Herb always had a positive outlook, a smile to share, and a joke to be heard. Of particular note was Herb's unwavering trust in the Lord. No matter the topic of discussion, somehow he would find a way to work in his favorite Bible verse as the ultimate and final word on any topic: "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6. This proverb was particularly comforting to Herb the past few years as Lois struggled with health crises. Herb was entirely devoted to Lois's care and improvement. He demonstrated his trust in the Lord faithfully and prayed for Lois's recovery daily. In addition to his wife, Lois, he is survived by 2 daughters, Pamela M. Aker and her husband Steven, Windsor, Mo.; Teresa L. Pennock and her husband David, Windsor, Mo.; 3 grandchildren, Stephanie Mayes, Valerie Hunt and Wyatt Aker and his wife Christy, all of Windsor, Mo.; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; a grandson, Keith William Aker; 3 brothers, Charles "Junior" Quigley, Kenneth Quigley and Wayne Quigley; and a sister, Thelma Snelling. Funeral services will be Thursday evening, May 17, 2018 at the Hadley Funeral Home, Windsor. Burial will be at Laurel Oak Cemetery at a later date.
