The Sedalia Weekly Bazoo, Sedalia, MO, Dec 7 1886 - In Memoriam. The death of Miss Maggie E. Salmon, daughter of Dr. G. Y. Salmon, of Clinton, was the occasion of profound regret to her relatives and many friends in this city. She was so young, so lovely in character, so true and loyal to her convictions, so zealous and earnest in good works, so considerate and tender to all of God's unfortunates, that love flowed to her as a river flows to the sea. When she died there were minor chords in earth's music, and many a heart breathed a sigh, and many eyes wept tears of regret. The following details of her funeral, which took place in Clinton, Thursday last, will be read with interest: The altar of the Cumberland Presbyterian church in which she had long been a prominent member of the choir, was draped with black and white crepe. In the center was a pillow composed of marchal neil roses, with the name "Maggie" wrought in purple immortelles. Just below this was a star, symbolical of the star of Maggie's life shining eternally beyond, made of white roses. There was also an anchor of tea roses, smilax and geranium leaves, a wreath; of tube and nephitos roses bearing the name "Maggie" in purple immortelles, baskets, crosses, pillows, etc., all bearing testimony to the love which the sleeper had inspired. A very fine musical programme had been arranged and the vocal selections were rendered tenderly and feelingly. Miss Maggie's vacant chair, heavily draped, bearing sad testimony to the voice which had gone to sing in the "Land of the Leal." The following were the pall bearers: John Penick, C. T. Givens, Paul Tyler, C. D. Dorman, Herbert Avery, Thos. Cheany, Walter Owen and Lyman Pearson. The remains were interred beside Mrs. Fannie Prince Salmon in Englewood cemetery. -- Last Rites. The funeral of Miss Maggie Salmon of Clinton, took place yesterday afternoon from the Cumberland Presbyterian church of that city, Rev. Dr. Mood, assisted by Rev. Mr. Barnard, officiating. The church was crowded with mourning friends and relatives of the beloved dead, and a long cortege following the remains to their last resting place beside her recently deceased sister, Mrs. Fannie Salmon Price, in Englewood cemetery.

SALMON, Mary Katherine "Kate" KIMBROUGH
1850-1894
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Sep 1 1894 - With widespread wings, the Death Angel alighted in our midst Monday night and claimed for its victim the wife of our estimable fellow citizen, Harvey W. Salmon. Mrs. Salmon had not been ill a great while. Hers was a complication of diseases but inflammation of the stomach and bowels seemed to be the most serious difficulty. Dr. Britts was the attending physician and faithfully performed his duties. Dr. John Kimbrough of St. Louis was in attendance at his sister's bedside during the last days of her illness. Mrs. Salmon was a daughter of Uncle Johnny Kimbrough and was born in Springfield, Mo. in 1850, making her 44 years of age. She came with her parents to Clinton in the fall of 1869 and was educated at Christian College in Columbia. She has been a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church for 25 years. In 1871, Uncle Johnny Kimbrough gave his daughter, Kate in marriage to Harvey W. Salmon and their married life has been spent in congenial happiness. Five children, four boys and one girl, made merry music in their home until death chilled the heart of one baby boy, a remarkably bright little fellow. At her death, Mrs. Salmon's oldest child, Harvey, Jr., was 21 and he will miss his gentle mother sadly. Merritt, Louise and Warren are too young to fully realize their loss but as they grow older they will know that the dearest, best thing in the world has been denied them - the tender love and watchful care of a Christian mother. To Mr. Salmon, her loss is irreparable. Also three sisters and four brothers are deeply grieved over the loss of what to them was a second mother. And, in tenderest pity, we speak of what her loss is to her aged father. Seventy-five years have come and gone since he entered this life and it seemed that, in his feeble old age, he would be the first to return to the life from whence he came. He had grown to depend on her for the brightness and sunshine of his old age. Funeral services were held at the elegant home of the deceased on East Green Street.

It seems that the little fellow and several companions were caught in the jam and were evidently trying to get out by crawling under the timbers, when the crash came, catching his neck on a crossbeam and breaking it. He was found sometime after and taken to Jackson's undertaking, where he was recognized as the son of E. W. Salmon, lately of Marshfield, and the sad news was communicated to grief-stricken relatives. His remains were interred at Englewood on Sunday. Milburn would have been 12 in a few days and, with his 7 year old sister, made his home with their grandmother, Mrs. W. W. Salmon on East Green. Their mother died some three years ago. He was a bright and manly boy.

SALMON, William H.
1867-1890
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Eye, Aug 1890 - A new grave in Englewood and beneath Mother Earth sleeps that long and peaceful sleep one of our boys who in life had the esteem of all. As the shades of eve were drawing to a close last Sabbath, after three weeks illness, Will H. Salmon breathed his last, and the once happy home now mourns the loss of one whose bright smiles never failed to win loving friends. He was just merging into his 24th year and if his life, so full of hope, could have been spared, our society and business relations would be better by having such a noble young man among us. For two years he had been connected with the bank of Salmon and during that time, Mayor Carter, who had stood beside him, says he never saw a more gentle and willing disposition to do what was right than Will H. Salmon possessed. A long procession of the sorrowing followed his remains to their resting place in Englewood.

SANDERS, Eligha William
1836-1921
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Elijah W. Sanders was born in Taylor county, Ky., Sept. 15, 1836, and died July 27, 1921, at this home in Deepwater. Uncle Lige, as he was always known, was the son of Easton C. and Demaris (Fradris) Sanders; the former a native of Kentucky, and the latter of Virginia. He was reared to young manhood in Kentucky, where he was married to Lieusiba Cook in 1854, soon after, moving to Sangamon county, Ill. To this union four children were born, two dying in infancy; his wife also dying Feb. 8, 1866, leaving to him the care of two young sons - Robert E., and John H., the latter living near Deepwater. In Nov. 1867, he came to Missouri, settling in Fairview township, and on Jan. 3, 1869, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Hurt, and to this union four children were given: Elizabeth, at home, Diena, of Appleton City; George, living on the home farm, and Charles, died Dec. 17, 1893. On Nov. 22, 1919, the death messenger again entered his family, taking the eldest living son, Robert E., and again on Dec. 19, 1919, he was called upon to give up the loving, faithful companion of 40 years, leaving him to the lonely life of the confirmed invalid, having thru an accident been confined to his wheel chair for three years, but all his troubles were borne with a bravery that could only be accredited to the faith and trust given him by the loving Father and the long Christian life he had led, having made a profession of faith in early youth. It was his greatest delight to take part in all religious services within traveling distance of his home. He was a member of the Baptist church, served for many years as a deacon of the Pleasant Valley church, and was one of the builders and charter members of that church. There are left to mourn their loss four children, thirteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; also two brothers - Thomas of Lowry City, and Elza of Campbellville, Ky., and a host of friends and other relatives. Deceased was a good citizen and neighbor, being good and kind to the widows, orphans, the sick and those in need. He was thoughtful of his pastor and church and was its faithful janitor for years, receiving the satisfaction of knowing that he was serving his Master for his compensation. In fact, there would not have been a Pleasant Valley church, had it not been for his foresight for a church home for those of that neighborhood, and the church stands as a splendid monument of his faith in his God and his deep Christian love for unborn generations. He did not harbor malice, could not tolerate deception and was the same every day, showing his religion in everyday deeds. All who knew him admired him. Funeral services were conducted at the Deepwater Baptist Church Thursday of last week, and the remains were interred in Brownington Cemetery.

SAPP, Helen Louise SMITH
1924-2005
Floral Hills Cemetery, Kansas City, Jackson Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Oct 3 2005 - Helen Louise Sapp was born in Altoona, Kansas, January 21, 1924, the daughter of Clint Ray and Kate (Havens) Smith. She died Thursday, August 25, 2005, at St. Luke's Hospital, Kansas City. She was the second of six children. She lived in the Raytown area for several years, before moving to Deepwater where she made her home next to her mother. She bowled at Meadowlark Lanes in Clinton for several years. She also bowled at Loma Vista Lanes in Raytown for several years before that. Helen carried a 200 average. She was a very avid bowler, receiving numerous awards and pins. Another of her hobbies was gardening. She was quite a gardener, especially with flowers. Helen also spent a lot of her spare time sewing different crafts. She volunteered to make a variety of crafts for different occasions to be sent to the Skilled Nursing Unit at Golden valley Hospital and Truman Lake Manor in Lowry City. Helen was very active in the Deepwater Volunteer Fire Department and First Responders fundraisers by helping out any way that she could and by donated items. She was famous for her very chewy and delicious peanut butter cookies. Helen never had children of her own until she married Howard Sapp and then became stepmother to eight children. Helen worked at Rival in Clinton for a few years before retiring. After Howard's retirement from the City of Clinton, they retired to her country home south of Deepwater where they lived the remaining years of their lives together. They had cattle and a bird dog named Buster who climbed trees after squirrels. Not only did the dog climb the trees, but so did Helen's great-niece and nephews, who would walk or ride their bikes from Deepwater to spend the night in her barn. They always had such a great time with her. Helen hosted Christmas dinner for the Smith side of the family. It started out with an overabundance of food. Then she made sure that Santa was coming for all the kids and that everyone had a gift. She didn't want anybody left out. Whenever one of her great-nephews didn't like his option of dinner at home, then he always knew that he could count on Helen for a backup. She was just a hop, skip and a holler away. During deer season while Howard was away hunting, Helen would go get the dinner supplies of choice and have a little slumber party for her great-niece and nephew. Whenever it was bedtime she would let them sleep with her and crowd her onto the edge of her own bed. Helen was the soul caregiver for Howard until the very last when Hospice became involved. She very suddenly became ill and passed away 20 days after Howard. She will be very sadly missed by her sister, two brothers and a number of nieces and nephews and many family members. Funeral services were held at the Vansant-Mills Chapel on Monday, August 29. Graveside services and burial was held at the Floral Hills Cemetery, Kansas City.

One of the most promising students of Fayette high school was removed from our midst Monday Morning when death claimed Howard Lee Sargent of Montrose. He passed away at 1:30 o'clock after an operation for a ruptured appendix last Thursday. "Holly" Sargent, as he was affectionately known by all his associates, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. James S. Sargent of Montrose. He was a superior student at the local high school, being on the honor roll every month since his entrance in September. He has taken an active interest in school affairs, and was very popular among his fellow classmates. Sargent had been suffering for some time with an eye trouble which caused him much inconvenience in his work at school. Death came after an illness of five days. Wednesday he suffered a severe attack of appendicitis, an emergency operation being performed as quickly as possible at the Lee Hospital. It was found that his appendix had ruptured. Sunday night it was decided that a blood transfusion was necessary, and Wesley Tyler, 1930 captain of the Central College football team of last fall gave his blood for that purpose. Sam Huddleston, also a Central student, offered his blood but a test showed that his was not of the right texture. Mrs. Sargent, the mother, had been with "Holly" ever since the operation Thursday, Mr. Sargent being called Sunday. They were with him at the time of his death. The body was taken to the family home in Montrose Monday morning. Sargent, who was a fine Christian young man, was a regular attendant of the Methodist Church at Teays Chapel. He will be greatly missed by all who came in contact with him. Howard Lee (Holly) Sargent, son of J. S. and Mary E. Sargent was born December 24, 1910 and departed from this life March 16, 1931, being 20 years, 2 months and 20 days of age. He grew to young manhood in the community in which he was born. He was ever ready to perform the duties of his Master, was a faithful Sunday school and league worker. He was League president of the Teays Chapel League when he entered school in Fayette last September. Since that time he has been a willing Worker in the Fayette Church and League. He was an honor student when he graduated from the grade school and had been on the honor roll every month since entering high school.

1835-1922
Appleton City Cemetery, Appleton City, St. Clair Co, MO
On Thursday, December 14, 1922, the sad news was reported that J. B. Sargent had been found dead at his home, east of Montrose. As he was living all alone, his son, W. W. Sargent, went to see how he was getting along and found him lying on the kitchen floor dead. It seemed he had gotten up as usual and had gone into the kitchen, when death came and he passed out of this life into that home eternal. James Bird Sargent was born in Woodford county, Kentucky, November 3rd, 1835, and died December 14, 1922, at the age of 87 years, 1 month and 10 days. On April 8th, 1858, he was united in marriage to Ann E. Farmer, who preceded him to the grave fourteen years and nine months ago.

Crook, of Appleton City, Mo.; Mrs. Clarence Nesbitt, of Clinton, Mo., and W. W. Sargent and J. S. Sargent, of Montrose. Besides his children, he leaves twenty-six grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren. In February, 1886, he moved with his entire family, from Franklin county, Kentucky, to Montrose, Henry county, Mo., and with the exception of two years, near Appleton City, in St. Clair county, and nine years in Bates county, he had made his home near Montrose. He was remarkably strong for one of his age, and seemed as well as usual a day or two before his death. Altho his strength was failing the past summer, he took great pride in his garden and truck patch and was never so contented as when he could be busy with his hoe, but God, who doeth all things well, bade him lay down his labors and come Home, where no toil and sorrows are known. As he had been a member of the Baptist church since early manhood, the funeral services were held at the Baptist church of Appleton City on Friday afternoon, midst a crowd of sorrowing friends. The remains were laid to rest by the side of his wife, in Appleton City's beautiful cemetery.

SARLES, Isaac
abt 1839-1892
Lewis Station Cemetery, Deer Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Lewis Station, Henry Co, MO - On Thursday the 7th inst. at about 12 o'clock a.m. a very sad accident happened at the mines of the Tebo Coal Co., situated one and a half miles north of our station. Isaac Sarles, a coal miner, while on duty separating the clay from the coal, failed to notice the dangerous condition of some slate and coal above his head and even did not heed the warning shout of another miner, before it was too late. With a loud noise the mass of slate and coal came crashing down, breaking his leg in two places and injuring him internally, death ensuing twenty-three hours afterwards. This adds another chapter to a miner's life. Sarles was fifty-three years old at the time of his death. He leaves a wife and six children, five boys and a little girl. He served three years and six months in the Union army; his pension papers were forwarded sometime ago and his widow will receive all pension due him up to the time of his death ere long. His burial took place on Sunday the 10th. The funeral sermon will be preached at the M.E. Church at Lewis next Sunday. Although the weather was inclement, all the miners, with a few exceptions, paid their last tribute to their late comrade, following the remains on foot over the rough country road to their last resting place. Rough may be the garments of a miner, and rough may be his speech and manner, but under that rough garment there beats a heart ever ready to help the distressed and the sick. (Note: The accident happened on January 8, 1892. Isaac served in Company "C" of the 49th Indiana Infantry during the Civil War. His military marker is located in Barton City Cemetery, Barton County, MO (near Liberal), but his body is buried near Lewis Station. The family story says both Isaac and his 18 year old son, Lafe, were killed in the same mine accident. - Mary Ann (Searles) Hoppe, Rogers, Arkansas mahoppe@specent.com)

SAVAGE, Frederick E. Judge
1836-1892
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Aug 27 1892 - Death of Judge Savage - Thursday night, the startling news was current that Judge F. E. Savage was accidentally shot while out gunning east of town. F. R. Piper, his companion in the hunt, says he and the Judge drove to the Bronaugh farm Thursday afternoon for plover shooting. The drive was made in the Judge's buggy and near dusk they prepared to return home. The Judge unhitched his horse, got in the buggy and was driving down the road while Mr. Piper started across a field intending to meet up with him and had gone but a short distance when he heard a shot; looking around to see if the Judge had brought down a bird, was horrified to hear him exclaim, "My God, I've shot myself." Before he could reach him, the Judge had got out and ran some distance into J. W. Middlecoff's yard. The charge entered his right arm near the shoulder and was bleeding profusely. The arm was corded, the Judge placed in the buggy and Mr. Piper, gently yet swiftly, drove into town. Drs. Britts, Holcomb and Johnson were summoned and found the wound quite serious. Amputation was necessary and the arm was removed at the shoulder socket. a trying ordeal, yet bravely borne. With the waning night, his end dawned. The wound was mortal. Conscious of the fact, the Judge talked to his wife and friends throughout the night vigil and at fifteen of one Friday morning, his spirit took its flight. Mr. Piper thinks the Judge may have set his gun down cocked, while unhitching, and in driving off, jolted the gun so it fell to the left, muzzle toward him, causing the discharge. Frederick E. Savage was born in Ky. in 1836; came to St. Louis about 1857, where he read law a few months and was licensed by Judge W. T. Wood; proceeding at once to Henry county, where he taught a term of school near Calhoun; came to Clinton the following spring, 1858, and domiciled with R. F. Taylor, then sheriff; was elected Public Administrator in 1860; war breaking out, he was among the first to enlist in the cause of his beloved South, in the company of Col. Tom Owens, later joining the forces of Gen. John Morgan, and at the final surrender, was with "Old Cerro Gordo" Williams; returning to Clinton at the close of the war, he resumed the practice of law; was appointed by Gov. Hardin as probate Judge, vice Wm. L. Avery, deceased, and in 1874 was elected to fill out the unexpired term; in 1884 was elected State Representative. Was married in 1874 to Miss Lutie Mallory in Liberty at the residence of his brother-in-law, now of this city; Gen. B. G. Boone acting as his best man. He and his wife occupied an elegant home on East Green and while no children blessed them, they lived a useful and happy life. The wife and two sisters - one the wife of the Hon. John S. Williams of Ky., the other residing in Ill. or Ohio, and innumerable friends, mourn his sad and untimely taking off. Judge Savage was an upright citizen, a sound lawyer, a staunch Democrat and a gruff, good man. Peace to his ashes.

Recovering in part, he went back to the usual routine of his life, insofar as he was able, but the will was stronger than the body and he realized he was losing ground. Ten weeks ago he was taken to St. Luke's hospital, Kansas City, where a serious heart condition was recognized, whose heavy toll was Death. Yet he was conscious to the last, despite his pain, constantly hoping each day to be better. Dwight R. Sayles was born October 29, 1885, on a farm seven miles west of Lowry City, the only son of his parents, Ed D. Sayles and the late Barbara Warner Sayles. As a small boy he attended the country school at Ohio Post Office where his father, a native of Ohio, was then farming. Some years later he moved with his parents to Lowry City where Mr. Sayles, Sr., operated a lumber yard. There he attended the Lowry City Academy from which he went to Park College at Parkville, Mo., where after an accident that resulted in a broken collar bone and subsequent infection, he returned home. When he was again well, he entered the Gem City Business College at Quincy, Ill. Completing his course, he returned home for a short time and as a young man of 20 years of age in 1905 he went to Three Lakes, Wash., to a big lumber camp where he was bookkeeper, early manifesting a talent for the business which was to prove his life's work. In the little Washington town, he entered into community life with an interest for its betterment, and served the people as post master and as a member of their school board, as well as in various minor capacities. His parents in the mean time had moved to Clinton in 1909 where E. D. Sayles had established one of the town's largest businesses, and where he was anxious for his son also to make his home. Acquiescing with his father's wish in 1913 Dwight R. Sayles came to Clinton, lending his young enthusiasm and business ability to the building up of a lumber yard that was complete in service, human in its dealings and foresighted in development. November 26, 1916, Mr. Sayles and Miss Edith Lane, a teacher in the Franklin school and daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Lane of Clinton, were married, giving to Clinton one of its most ideal homes where the warmth of love and the beauty of congenial interests filled their lives. They built a modern bungalow at 307 North Third street, where they lived until 1920 when they built their present large home at 306 North Second street. Two sons. Dwight, Jr., and Sammy Lane, and one daughter, Margaret Lindsay, completed the family circle -- delightful children, bright, alert, leaders among their friends, just as their parents have been, and idealized by their father. So great was his love that every plan to insure their protection and safety possible to him were made. Their success was his delight and deep affection and respect he inspired in them, his greatest joy. Into his allotted span of years he crowded so much activity and labored in so many fields, never sparing himself, always thinking of others, that manifold works praise him. He was a member of the board of education 10 years, having served as its president five years, conscientious and firm in opinions and the discharge of responsibility. He was a member of the Southern Methodist official church board and belonged to the John Wesley Society during its active years. He was also a Mason, honored and respected. When time permitted he was a worthy member of Rotary, and at the time of his passing was a member of the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, the Artesian Park Board, and of the Clinton Boat and Fishing Club, enjoying it not alone for the sport it afforded and the hours of relaxation in a busy life, but through his children, who love the open and are all fine swimmers. In every activity, civic or church, he was wholly adequate. He loved people, and his friendly hand was ever ready to aid even the least of them and many a poor man's cottage or darkey's cabin has been shingled or repaired with but a fraction of the cost paid. Mingled with the grief of parting is gratitude for his great goodness and the bountiful heritage of courage and fineness he leaves his devoted wife and children. In the realm of the Tomorrow he stands to see them bravely carry on -- Death loves the Shining Mark! Surviving Dwight R. Sayles are his family above mentioned, his father, E. D. Sayles, to whom he was a right hand of usefulness and devotion, and three sisters: Mrs. Logan Armstrong and Irene Wright of Hawk Point, Mo., and Mrs. Esther Sly of Lakeside, Calif. His mother passed to long sleep in 1912. The funeral services were conducted at the Franklin Street Methodist church Sunday afternoon.

SAYLES, Edward D.
1856-1938
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
COUNTRY LOSES VETERAN MERCHANT LUMBERMAN -- E. D. Sayles Died Saturday After 30 Years of Business in Clinton -- Nearing His 82nd Birthday -- Preceded in Death by Only Son Last Fall -- E. D. Sayles, for some thirty years a beloved and respected lumber man of Clinton, at 2:40 a.m. August 6, reached the end of a long, worthy life in which his 82nd milestone would have been passed the day he was laid back for his long sleep into the dust from which all men come. General grief follows the loss of this fine man, whose splendid son, Dwight R. Sayles, last September answered Death's inevitable call -- making two irreparable losses in a few months for family, friends, community. E. D. Sayles was born August 8, 1856, at Talmadge, Ohio, and when quite young he knew real responsibility for his father died when he was but seven and when he was 14 years of age, his mother and her two sons moved to near Lowry City, Missouri, where he helped her operate a farm. Miss Barbara Warner became his wife February 23, 1882, and for a time they lived near Ohio Post Office where his son, Dwight, and three daughters were born and where Mr. Sayles continued farming. For a year they lived near North Station, Henry County, which was a coal center at the time, and where Mr. Sayles operated a general store. Going in 1892 to Lowry City, where he saw the future in the lumber business, he decided to turn his wide experience and practical knowledge to that field. Success here was equal to that he had experienced in all his activities. But his interests were not limited to lumber. If several years he served the Lowry City bank as cashier, he was a member of the city council and school board, and actively supported the, building of a new church during his residence there. His public spirit was unbounded and the upbuilding of his community his great ambition. He advocated more than any one citizen the establishment of the Lowry City Academy and helped finance it when it became an actuality, and personal pleasure was his when his children graduated there. He retained his interest in the lumber business in Lowry even after coming to Clinton, being a partner in the Styles-Harris firm. When an opening in the lumber business offered itself in Clinton, he came with his family here some 30 years ago, and bought the lumber yard at the corner of Main and Green streets. Under his wise jurisdiction, the business grew and prospered, for Mr. Sayles was considered to be one of the best informed lumber men in southwest Missouri, with nearly 50 years' experience. Banking and financial circles also knew his wise counsel and safe advice. He served on the Clinton school board from 1924-1927, and his son succeeded him. He never rejected responsibility and was at the back of many civic enterprises, with a great capacity for hard work, that began early each morning and continued through long days. His pleasures, he enjoyed with the same energy, yet he was always a modest man, more a person of acts than speech. His thought was deep however, and his judgment of people keen and accurate. He was a man of the highest integrity, fair to his competitors, just in every dealing, generous to his friends, sympathetic to every cause and devoted to his family. A strong Presbyterian, in which church he had been brought up, his influence was Christian in every act and his irreproachable standards made him a power for good among men in all walks of life, from the men who worked for him, the poor persons to whom he extended credit, to the most important citizen whose large checks he honored. Death first broke their family circle's, few years after they came to Clinton, when Mrs. Sayles died, and for three years his daughter, Esther, kept the home together. February 10, 1916, Miss Christine Melton became his wife and after several years they built the attractive home at Second and Clinton streets where they have since resided. Surviving Mr. Sayles are his widow; three daughters, Mrs. Logan Armstrong of Hawk Point, Mo.; Mrs. Irene Wright of St. Louis and Mrs. Altho G. Sly, Lakeside, Calif.; eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren, and Mrs. Dwight Sayles, widow of his lately deceased only son, whose passing was a blow he took with courage but heartbreak. He also leaves one brother, W. L. Sayles, of Horming, Calif. They all bore him the most tender regard for his nature was so mild, gentle, kind and generous that the good he found in others, they saw in him and all men loved him. The funeral services were conducted Monday at the home.

SCHERFF, Jonas H.
1846-1932
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
JONAS R. SCHERFF DIES AT AGE OF EIGHTY-SIX -- In Business In Clinton For Many Years -- Loved and Respected By All -- A True Friend -- Funeral at Late Home Today (Thursday) -- "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away." Eighty-six years ago He gave an infant who was destined to drink deeply of life and love, and Wednesday morning at 12:20 o'clock, He took back unto Himself the soul of a man who had given himself so generously to all with whom he came in contact -- Jonas H. Scherff. His had been an interesting and worthwhile life, beginning near Hanover, Germany, May 13, 1846. His boyhood days were spent there, and he early learned to expertly wield the shears and needle, and became an adept tailor. He came to America in 1866, arriving in New York, January 18. On his way here, he stopped in England and worked in a sugar factory a few months. He visited awhile in New York with his sister, and the next year went to Fort Dodge, Iowa. It was at Fort Dodge, that Jonas H. Scherff found the help-mate of his life, Miss Caroline Christine Lichte, and they were united in marriage April 16, 1870. In 1871, they moved to Clinton. Death claimed Mrs. Scherff in 1914. Six children were the fruit of this union, two of whom died in infancy, Dorothea Augusta Robinson in 1913, and those who survive the father are Miss Lena, of the home; sons, J. W., north of Clinton, and Henry, of St. Louis. There are two grandchildren. The first few months in Clinton, the young man was employed in the Sam Vail brick yard. Then he accepted a position in the shop of Mr. Wernz, as a tailor. Later he entered into partnership with W. L. Windsor, who had a shop on the south side of the square, but this partnership was dissolved, and Mr. Scherff had a shop where Dr. Walker's office is now located. Then it was that he started doing the alterations of the J. L. Goss Clothing Company. From here he moved to the Carney building on the north side of the square, and discontinued tailoring, doing only the alteration work for the Goss Clothing Company. April 4, 1931, he contracted flu and pneumonia, and April 7, realizing his physical condition, sold his shop to Ed Shepard who continues to carry on his work, and retired to rest and dream of the works he had completed in his span of life, at his pleasant home at 324 North Second street, where he had lived 48 years. Mr. Scherff had lived with the idea that whosoever soweth courtesy reaps friendship, and he that plants kindness gathers love, and the friends he had made in Clinton and Henry County are many. He was ever ready to give of his service, his wonderful intelligence and worldly goods. Friends delighted to go into his home, and went as often as they could, where such a warm glow of happiness and fellowship was ever present. There, too, one saw the love of the daughter, Miss Lena, who had cared for her father in all his illness, laughed with him in time of joy, and sympathized with him in his moments of pain. He valued highly his friends, his customers, and loved ones, and all appreciated the fun loving man, whose life, like that of a maple tree, grew more beautiful as it faded. He had lived a clean life, and his health was ever good, until the last three years, when he had neuritis of the heart, and often had severe attacks. Since retiring from business, he, derived the greatest pleasure in walking to the square twice a week where he greeted his friends. These occasions were bright spots for him and them also. A few days previous to death, found him still vigorous, no laziness whatever in his makeup at this ripe age, for he would go out in his garden, pull weeds and hoe, and kept it well. The night before his death, he told his daughter he believed he would sit out on the porch and read. He found the daily newspaper, read and discussed it with interest, and retired early as had been his custom through life. Mr. Scherff was reared in the Lutheran church, and was confirmed when he was 14 years of age. The teachings of his Master were ever uppermost in his mind, and he had observed them thru the years. Funeral services will be conducted at the home this (Thursday) afternoon. Burial in Englewood cemetery.

SCHERFF, Lizzie Ann KEMPER
1876-1926
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. J. W. Scherff died at her home three miles north of Clinton, at 5:45 a.m. Sunday, March 28th, 1926, after many weeks of suffering. She had not been in good health for some time and January 23rd, she had her teeth pulled. Having a bad case of pyorrhea, it seemed that a poisoning developed through her system that caused abscesses and the most intense agony. Love and the knowledge of physicians and nurses were not possible to save her life and the end came to release her from pain. She was 50 years old March 9th, having been born in Kentucky. She came to Henry county with her parents when a young girl. She was united in marriage 30 years ago to J. W. Scherff, who survives her. As no children came to their home, they took William Cannon, an orphan boy, at the age of nine, whom they gave the love, care and protection as they would have an own son. In return he gave them the affection of a son, and resides at Pershing, Iowa. Besides her devoted husband and the foster son, she leaves one brother, William Kemper of Clinton; and two sisters -- Mrs. Frank Russell of Dixon, Ill., and Mrs. Stella Lyons of Donna, Tex. Deceased was a devout Christian and for a number of years was a member of the M. E. Church, South, at Huntingdale, when they lived in that neighborhood. Later they moved to the farm north of Clinton, which they purchased and on which they built a modern home. After moving there they put their church membership in the First M. E. church of Clinton. She was also a valued member of the Land Thimble Club, taking a part in all their activities. She excelled in everything she did. Her home was spotless. She was noted for her fine cooking. Her poultry was thrifty and paying part of the farm. Never was there a better neighbor than Mrs. Scherff. She was a born nurse and seemed to know just what to do to ease pain and suffering. When friends became ill they sent for her far and near, as she came with a cherry smile and a ready hand, to minister to the needs of friends and relatives in affliction. She often times worked beyond her strength. She will be missed by all. To the husband the blow of her death falls most severely. The funeral services were conducted Monday afternoon. Burial in Englewood.

SCHILLER, George E.
1871-1933
Montrose Cemetery, Montrose, Deepwater Twp, Henry Co, MO
Montrose MO - Prominent Montrose Citizen Dead - George E. Schiller was born July 13, 1871, at Union, Mo., and died in Wesley Hospital, Kansas City, August 4, 1933, being 62 years of age. In young manhood he came to Montrose and after a few years established the business which he had conducted successfully since that time. He was married April 18, 1904, to Miss Orlettie Dorward. She, with two daughters, Mrs. T. S. Simpson, of Nogales, Arizona, and Jeannette, of the home, survive. Mr. Schiller was at all times a Christian gentleman and gave of his time and means to support the gospel of Christ. He was a member of the Methodist church, and was also a loyal member of the Masonic Lodge of Montrose, and endeavored to uphold the principles and ideals for which it stands. At the beginning of our conflict with Spain he enlisted in his country's service and valiantly strove to maintain the honor and the integrity of a true, patriotic soldier. Illness, however, prevented his going to Cuba, and for four long, weary months he suffered, being a victim of that dread malady, typhoid fever, which at that time, ravaged the rank and file of the United States Army. Far from home, in a government hospital at Fortress Monroe, Va., he fought this disease from which he never fully recovered. Mr. Schiller was a musician of marked ability and this talent was a source of pleasure in his home and in the community. Band circles, near and far will miss him. In his home circle he found his chief pleasure, and he was never happier than when working to improve and beautify his home for the loved family. 'Twas a home with a great measure of peace and contentment. George Schiller will be missed in both the social and business life of the town. His ready wit, his kindly, genial nature, and his love for the worthwhile things of life, endeared him to young and old, and his life was rich in friendships. The measure of a life is not in the number of years lived, but in the spending of those y ears, whether they be many or few. The success of a life is not measured by stocks and bonds, but by those invisible treasures stored in the Bank of Heaven. A good man has gone. This neighbor with his cheery smile and friendly greeting will pass our way no more. His little family long will grieve, but the influence of his life will linger on as a sweet melody. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Methodist church with rev. S. R. Dillman, of Appleton City, a former pastor and dear friend, of the deceased, in charge. Rev. C. E. Nickerson, pastor of the local church, assisted. A trumpet quartet, led by Professor Charley Fisk, of butler, rendered selections. Mr. Fisk was a former comrade of Mr. Schiller, having been conductor of the 6th Missouri Regiment Band, of which organization Mr. Schiller was a member during the Spanish-American War. The last rites were conducted at the graveside under the direction of the Masonic lodge, and as taps were sounded the body was gently lowered to its last resting place, there to await the Master's summons. Relatives and friends from out of town who were present at the services were: Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Simpson and Mrs. Sidney Simpson of Nogales, Ariz.; Mr. and Mrs. B. D. Wilson of Excelsior, Minn.; H. C. Beckman of Mineola, Tex.; Mr. and Mrs. Emmett Baker, of Sarcoxie, Mo.; and A. J. Mann, of Clinton. Mrs. Schiller is a cousin of A. J. Mann.

Rissell, of Clinton, and Miss Julian Paul, who is employed in Kansas City. The deepest sympathy of all is extended to the bereaved ones in this dark hour of sorrow, and may they look to the Heavenly Father for comfort, for He alone can heal the hearts so torn with grief. And may the Savior gently guide the footsteps of the little son, who will be so sadly miss the loving mother care through life. She was never too tired or busy to stop and help him in whatever trouble he brought to her, and although the father and grandparents will try to fill her place, no one can take the place of mother.

SCHMEDDING, Hilda LICHER
1890-1924
St. Ludger Cemetery, Deepwater Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. Lawrence Schmedding passed away at her home near Germantown, Wednesday, October 20th. She had been in poor health for several years, the last two being confined to her bed. Her husband took her to Kansas City, and to Mayo Bros. several months ago in hopes of making it possible for her to enjoy many more years with her family and loved ones, but the will of the Heavenly father was to call her to the home prepared for all those who love and serve him. The maiden name of the deceased was Hilda Licher and she was born near Montrose, April 28th, 1890. On October 29th, 1912, she was united in marriage to Lawrence Schmedding. To this union five children were born and those who survive her are: Harry, Ruth, Frederica, Hershule and Julian. Besides them she leaves to mourn her death a broken hearted husband, loving parents, Mr. and Mrs. Pete Licher, one brother, Edward Licher, and two sisters - Mrs. Robert Cole and Mrs. Pence; besides a host of friends. Weep not dear husband, children, parents and friends for she is out of her suffering, for she suffered as no tongue can tell, but she bore her suffering very patiently. She had all the attention that kind nursing and friends could give, but to no avail; death had called its victim, and on Wednesday morning at 3 a.m., while loved ones and friends stood around the dying bed, the spirit bade farewell to its earthly home and left for its home above. May the Lord comfort the dear ones in their hour of sorrow and prepare them all for a happy reunion in the realms of endless day. She was a kind and dutiful mother, a loving companion and always ready to help those in need. She was known for her kindliness and sweet neighborly manner and always had a smile for those she met. The children will miss this dear, good mother, who was always ready with helpful advice to them, and we know that when someone said "She was the best mother who ever lived," she spoke the thoughts of others. May they be comforted to know that their mother is now with the redeemed and free from sorrow or pain. Funeral services were held at St. Ludger's church at Germantown, Friday morning, by Rev. Ault. She was laid to rest beneath a beautiful mound of flowers in the Germantown cemetery.

SCHMEDDING, Nora BUCKLEY
1861-1940
St. Ludger Cemetery, Deepwater Twp, Henry Co, MO
MRS. BARNEY SCHMEDDING DIES NEAR GERMANTOWN -- Wife of Late President of Farmers Mutual Ins. Co. Passes Tuesday At Home of Her Son -- Active Club and Church Woman There -- Death came to Mrs. Barney Schmedding, one of the most loved and worthy characters in the Germantown vicinity, at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, 1940, at the home of her son, Joe Schmedding. This imposing brick farm residence had been the home of her and her late husband many years and when they left the farm due to his ill health, it was a source of happiness to this fine woman, who had the happy gift of finding good in all things, to have it become the home of her son and his family. And likewise it was a comfort, when time had taken from her side the sturdy mate of long and happy years and her own health was lessened, that she could return to an apartment in the big house to which she had gone as a bride and feel again at home. Mrs. Schmedding had enjoyed excellent health for a woman of her years and though she had become more frail with the passing of years her family had hoped to have her long with them. However, last Friday she had a severe chill and gradually grew weaker until the end. Miss Nora Buckley was born December 14, 1861, in Toronto, Canada. Her parents having been born in Ireland, immigrated as young people to Canada. She was married to Barney Schmedding February 1877 at Germantown, and he took his gay and laughing bride immediately to the fine farm just west of that thriving community. Of pure Irish descent, Mrs. Schmedding appreciated the robust qualities of her staunch and loyal husband, of German parentage. His farming success and importance in Henry County were always a source of pride to her, for he was known in almost every rural home through his work with the Farmer's Mutual Fire and Lightning Ins. Co. He was its second president, following Thomas Day in that capacity, two years after the organization in 1890. This year his son, W. E. Schmedding, has stepped into that capacity, another source of gratification to his mother. Three years ago she moved from Montrose to the home of her son, where she was given tender filial care and consideration and once more became the life of the community with her ready Irish wit and undimmed zest for living. For Mrs. Barney Schmedding was not cast in the ordinary mold, a spark divine touched to fire the quick light of her bright eyes and kept the lively Irish wit scintillating with never a barbed thrust or unkind motive to mar it. Beloved by the old, for whom she always had a word of comfort or cheer, or some story to tell to take them away from themselves; adored by the young, whose spirit she felt even at the end of her many years; understood by the children to whom no language speaks so readily as a laugh, this unusual woman made everything about her assume a glow. Quick was her sympathy, tender her ministry in time of trouble, generous and tolerant her interpretation of all acts of people about her, for she looked for the good, and found the beautiful. The ardor of her youth that she freely gave to her husband was repeated in the devotion she gave the little lives that came to make that home complete. She excelled in the preparation of fine dishes, she loved company -- a passing guest or a party were welcomed with true hospitality, and she was never the one to say no to a suggested frolic by one of her children. For she was a girl with her girls and a sweetheart with her boys and she never had a friend but found life a brighter place for having known her. Her home was of paramount importance to her, and she kept it with the same pride she took in her own trim, immaculate person. She cooked, sewed, or decorated her home, not as one doing a task but as an artist, feeling joy in creating loveliness and order about her. She was an enthusiastic attendant of the Maple Grove Extension Club and enjoyed the testing and application of every new idea or suggestion. She was active in all phases of the Montrose and Germantown Catholic church life. Money was not an end to her, only a means to greater happiness for she was notably generous and charitable. Mrs. Schmedding made a noble career of her womanhood, and in her hands it became endowed with the goodness, grace and charm God intended the rarest spirits to possess. She reached out into countless lives to create happiness or bring a bit of laughter, and through her others have been blest. Six children were born to the union of Mr. and Mrs. Schmedding, four of whom are living, John M., of Kansas City; Joseph H., Lawrence B., and William E., of near Montrose. She is also survived by 16 grandchildren, eight great grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Kate Carve, north of Montrose. The funeral will be conducted this morning (Thursday) at the Germantown Catholic Church. Her body will be laid at the cemetery nearby beside her husband and her two children who have died.

Finey Church Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Anna Hansler was born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1850; died May 28, 1931, age 80 years, ten months and four days. She was married to Conrad Schmidli August 15, 1871. To this union nine children were born, all of whom are living. They are: Mrs. H. A. Haverland, of Lowry City; Conrad Jr., and Henry, near the home; John of Kansas City, Mo.; Mrs. Clarence Jones of Eaton, Colo.; Will of Deepwater, Mo.; Mrs. John Young of Chilhowee, Mo., and Leza and Jake of the home, who by their beautiful devotion to her cheered and cared for her through her declining years. All the children were present for the funeral except Mrs. Clarence Jones, who came and was with her mother the first week of her illness, but was compelled to return home. Mrs. Schmidli leaves besides her children, 15 grandchildren, who were present, and a host of friends to mourn their loss. She lived in St. Louis from the time of her marriage until 1877, when with her family she moved to Henry county and located near Mt. Zion, where they lived for a short time. Then they moved to the present home near Finey, where she lived until her death. She was converted and united with the Lutheran Reform church at the age of 18. She later moved her membership to the German church near Mt. Zion, and all her life she worked unpartially with God's people of all denominations. Hers was a beautiful Christian character and she lived a life of the fullest service. Such is the brief history of this good mother. All who knew her, knew her as a faithful wife and companion; a loving mother, who was devoted to their family, and no sacrifice was too great for their comfort or welfare. She was a neighbor of the old school type in the fullest meaning of the word. She leaves to her family by example and precept an inheritance of old fashioned German thrift and neatness. To the community in which most of her life was spent she leaves a wealth of love and service that will survive and enrich the present generation. To the land of her adoption, she leaves as citizens, sons and daughters who stand for the highest type of civilization and civic righteousness. Mother Schmidli had been in failing health for some time due to high blood pressure, but seemed in her usual health. On Sunday, May 3rd, she attended Sunday school at Finey in the morning, ate dinner in the home of O. E. Smiley, visited in the home of Mrs. Stephens in the afternoon. On Monday morning when her daughter Leza went into her room and asked her how she felt, she said, "I don't know what's the matter." Leza called Jake and told him "something is wrong with mother." He then went and spoke to her and she made the same remark. They called their brother, Henry, and Dr. Logan, of Warsaw at once. the doctor said she had suffered a stroke due to a ruptured blood vessel which had caused partial paralysis of mind and speech. All that medical skill and loving hands could do, was done to prolong her life, but she gradually grew worse and at ten o'clock on the night of the 28th, she slipped quietly and peacefully away to join her husband who preceded her on December 18, 1928. Funeral services were held at the Finey Baptist church Saturday, May the 30th. She was laid to rest by the side of her husband under a wealth of beautiful flowers.

Tuesday morning the neighbors thought him better and went home. Only the wife and three children - Jake and Leza, of the home, and son Henry, nearby, were present when the end came. Such is the history of this good man, but to the writer, who has had the pleasure of enjoying the hospitality of this home for nearly half a century, it is fitting to say that in the passing of Mr. Schmidli the entire neighborhood has lost a friend for he was loved and honored by all who knew him. It was a pleasure to talk with him because of his high ideals of life. He was always posted on the current events of the day, being a great reader. He loved music, having played in the band in his native land, also in St. Louis. Funeral services were held at the Finey Baptist Church Thursday, the 20th. The pall bearers were four sons - John, Henry, Will and Jake and one son-in-law, H. A. Haverland.

Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
ILL HEALTH CAUSES MRS. F. F. SCHMIDT TO TAKE LIFE -- Coroner Believes Veterinary Hypodermic Tablets Induced Immediate Death -- Depressed and Nervous -- Believed Suicide Was Intended -- Mrs. F. F. Schmidt, wife of Dr. Schmidt, veterinary of about six miles south of Clinton, nervous and depressed, took her life Wednesday morning. Dr. Schmidt who was plowing corn in the bottoms, is reported to have seen Mrs. Schmidt about the yard in the course of the morning but returning at noon found a note in the basement of the house where they had their kitchen saying he would find her upstairs. Going to the bedroom Dr. Schmidt found his wife's lifeless body on the bed and two notes, one on the machine stated this was the way she wanted to go, etc, Mrs. Schmidt had apparently swallowed some veterinary hypodermic tablets used by her husband in his practice. The poison was judged to be strychnine by coroner, Dr. S. B. Hughes, and she had evidently followed them with tea. On her bed was fresh linen and she had on her gown and hose and had laid down ready for the long sleep she was inducing in undue season. Mrs. Schmidt's elderly mother, who makes her home with her daughter and husband, was gone from home most of the morning and from all appearances the self-inflicted death was an act Mrs. Schmidt had contemplated for some time. Dr. G. S. Walker was first summoned but Mrs. Schmidt was dead when he arrived and when Coroner Hughes arrived on the scene of the tragedy it was decided death had come not later than 9:00 a. m. Mrs. Schmidt is said to have been 59 years of age and as far as can be learned ill health was responsible. The body was taken to the Wilkinson Funeral home. No arrangements about funeral services or further details were known at press time. -- OBITUARY -- Cally Lee Prouse was born April 7, 1880, in the New Harmony community. She was united in marriage June 18, 1902, to Frank F. Schmidt and a few months later they went to Kansas City for three years where Mr. Schmidt was attending a veterinarian school. After this they lived in Deepwater six years where Dr. Schmidt became a well known veterinarian, also at Warsaw for ten years before they returned to the home community. Dr. and Mrs. Schmidt had since lived on their farm, he carrying on his practice to a certain extent and both deeply interested in agriculture until her death May 3, 1939. Mrs. Schmidt is survived by her husband, her mother, Mrs. Thomas Prouse, two sisters, Mrs. Effie Arnold and Mrs. Nora Caldwell also a brother. Johnny, all of the New Harmony neighborhood. Mrs. Schmidt was converted and joined an Evangelical Church at the New Harmony Schoolhouse but since there is no church of that faith nearer than Kansas City she and her husband went to the Golden Gate Baptist Church when they attended. Mrs. Schmidt, always energetic and capable, loved to be outdoors, working in their garden or with her geese and chickens. This spring she had already hatched off 30 goslings and about 50 little chicks. She usually hatched the latter in an incubator, but due to ill health, had set the eggs under hens, also the goose eggs which are now being looked after by Dr. Schmidt. She had not been well for some time, but seemed better, although not her usual, gentle self, but was devotedly cared for by her husband, whose first concern was ever for his wife. Mrs. Schmidt's home, dear to her heart, ever immaculately kept with special pride, was where her friends found a ready welcome awaiting them. With true thrift, she supplied their winter's need from her garden and other home grown products. She was equally well versed in the needle work arts, and filled every moment to overflowing. Funeral services were conducted Friday at the Golden Gate Church. Burial at Englewood under direction of Wilkinson Funeral Service.

SCHNEIDER, Caroline Wilhelmina Henrietta KOEHLER
1857-1927
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
MRS. JACOB SCHNEIDER AT REST -- She passed away at 8:20 a.m. Saturday, February 5th, 1927, like a peaceful shadow when her spirit took wings and went away to rest in a land of beauty under the sun kissed sky of an endless day. No human relationship is more beautiful than the comradeship of husband and wife that has ripened into the fullness of the evening years with, the tender and subdued sweetness that has replaced the warmer ardor of the earlier days. There is in it the gentler joys that may, perhaps, be prophetic of those spiritual joys that the seers have thought make Heaven. Yet, no matter how full the years have been, no matter how low may have run the, allotted sands in the hour glass of life, the breaking of the tie brings a pathos that fills the heart with sympathy. Such was true, when the first break came in that happy family circle June 4, 1926, when the beloved husband and father made the Heavenly pilgrimage. She, who was nearest him, smiled thru her tear blinded eyes, with the mother heart comforted and cheered her children and grandchildren. When the wee grandchildren climbed into her arms on that morning, somebody said: "Come to me, grandma is too tired." Then she said: "Never yet have I been too tired to take a baby." The death of her husband was a, crushing blow -- although so brave and courageous she soon became ill. She visited at the homes of her married children and all gave her their tenderest affection. Soon she became so weak she was bedfast, with a serious stomach trouble that her physicians and a specialist pronounced incurable. For weeks, until near the last, every morning she would insist on putting on her dress, as she thought it helped to have her so she could get up and as long as sufficient strength remained she would go into the other room, a little while each day. No words can describe what she suffered and yet she never complained. She would say: "It must be for the best; God's ways are always best." Through all these days of suffering she enjoyed the visits of her neighbors, sympathizing with them in their sorrows, rejoicing with them in good fortune. They brought flowers to cheer her; dainty dishes to tempt her appetite. Nothing that earthly hands could do was left undone by them and her children. Caroline Wilhelinina Henrietta Koehler was born October 23, 1857, near Augusta, Mo. Her parents died when she was a small girl and one of her aunts raised her. There were only three children in her family -- one brother, Louis Koehler, still lives at Augusta, and one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Schneider, resides at Hamburg, Mo. She was married to Jacob Schneider May 28, 1878, coming to Henry county five years later. They first lived near LaDue, then for about 15 years on the place which is now the home of Louis Hendrich. They bought the land and built their present home in 1898. This home is a hallowed spot in which she was queen, governing it by the spirit of love -- a heart home where virtue lived and grew, and contentment dwelt. Perfect order reigned in the household, yet there was no coldness, no stiffness, no formality there. The sunshine of her smile always welcomed you. Many of you no doubt recall with us the many times that we have enjoyed the hospitality of this home. O! what tender associations it recalls. With what fond recollections will our grief stricken hearts caress these memories. Every guest of the household was personally welcomed; also bidden farewell by her and made to feel she enjoyed their coming. Her children's friends were hers -- such a mother -- we would that all could be like her. There would be no cases for court to try if all homes were like this. One of the daughters told us this: "She was our mother, our comrade, our friend and our pal. All of us shared our every plan, or pleasure or sorrow with her." During her husband's last illness he told her he would soon come for her, as not even heaven would be complete without her and since then she had lived in the sincere belief he would come for her, as he had promised. In the past two months, she felt him with her constantly. She would awaken from her sleep to tell her children: "Father was with me again, telling me to come to him." Every Christmas she had given small remembrances to the little folks of the neighborhood and this year, so ill she could scarcely be free a moment from the terrible pain, she had her children wrap the little packages up for the children of Mt. Carmel and send them with her name on them to the Christmas tree at the Mt. Carmel church, where she held membership. She was good, patient -- a wonderful Christian character. Whenever a friend or neighbor needed help they called for Mrs. Schneider to come and help. She never failed them. She never made an enemy. Her God, her husband, her children and her home made up her world -- later her grandchildren. Her heart delighted in flowers and they where her constant companions. Her garden contained everything needed for summer and winter in vegetables and she knew the best method of cultivation and the best method of storing or preserving. Her flowers attracted attention far and wide -- specimens rare to this climate were her delight -- they responded to her loving care. The beautiful flower and vegetable garden in front of the house delighted every visitor and when you thought you had seen them all, in another nook or corner you found something new. In the yard was a lily pool; about the house were fragrant vines. The home life of the Schneiders is beautiful -- love being the only ruler -- resulting in courtesy and deference to each other. During these days of sickness and sorrow that has extended more than two years, Louis the oldest son, has been the chief guardian of all concerned. In him, have all the others placed perfect trust. He and sister, Charlotte had anticipated the every wish of their mother day and night, and helping them have been Benjamin and Philip, the other two sons at home. From Kelso, Wash., came John Schneider, his wife and two children and have been here the last few weeks of his mother's life. Also helping almost constantly have been the other children, Mrs. John Hillebrand, of Urich; Jacob Schneider, Mrs. Clyde Burgert and Mrs. John Gill, of Kansas City, and Mrs. Garland Jones, east of Clinton. Much of the time the twelve grandchildren have been there too. One little granddaughter, Carolyn Jean Gill, took pneumonia and died November 4, last, when here with her mother. Mrs. Schneider and husband were companions in the truest sense of the word, his religion was her religion; his church her church. During her last illness her Bible and her flowers were her constant companions, but it was ever thus. Her faith was always unquestioning and unfaltering. She lived her Christianity every minute of her life, radiating happiness and good. While all of her children were her comrades, perhaps a little nearer than the rest was Charlotte, who had ever been her mother's closest companion in every plan for home, garden or poultry. She will miss the little mother most for their lives had been inter-woven. The funeral service was most beautiful and impressive, Rev. Lindsey weaving into it the beautiful romance of the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Schneider, impressively showing that they became husband and wife, father and mother, but remained sweethearts to the end and it was by this wonderful human love that they influenced in such a marvelous way their own children and everyone with whom they came in contact. In speaking of Mrs. Schneider, he said: "A few weeks ago I visited her bedside. She was a wonderful woman. She took me right to heaven." This service was held at the Schneider home, Monday morning, and her body then taken to Englewood and laid beside her husband and little granddaughter.

SCHNEIDER, Jacob
1855-1926
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
JACOB SCHNEIDER AT REST -- Death is always unwelcome to the living, but to him who meets it with an upright heart it is a quiet haven; "Tis the passage to that God, Who bids His children come, When their weary course is trod." Jacob Schneider died at his home, six miles west of Clinton at 6:20 a.m., Friday, June 4, 1926. For two months he had been suffering with heart trouble and complications. His loved ones had hoped he might recover, but they had been warned by their physicians that the end was near. He, too, felt it and when able during the last days would call different members of the family to him and tell them what he wished done. Through the days and nights his beloved wife and children had nursed, watched and prayed. His disease was such he was never bedfast, for in order to breathe he had to sit up. On the night of the 2nd, when the rest were asleep, his son, Louis, had been watching. But as his father was quiet, he went to the kitchen for a drink. He heard something, turned around and saw his father take his cap off the peg and then he said to Louis: "Bring the boat to the landing, it is time to go." Louis said: "No, not now father; come back to bed." And he said: "All right, just as you say, we will wait." It seemed he got a little better next morning, but by the middle of the afternoon he slipped into unconsciousness from which he never awakened, the end came without pain or a struggle. With the rising of the sun the tired heart stopped and his spirit took its flight into the glorious realms of eternity "over there." Sixteen years ago he had a severe spell of sickness and from this he never regained his former strength, but he was very active both in mind and body, overdoing many time. Since last August. his friends have watched him fail, but when out of pain he would jest with his family, friends and physicians, always wishing to make life as easy as possible for those about him. Jacob Schneider was born at Cottleville, Mo., in St. Charles county, Feb. 24, 1855. He was raised at Welden Springs. He was married to Miss Caroline Koehler, May 28, 1878. They came, to Henry county five years later, living near LaDue a year, later moved to the place now owned by Louis Hendrich, where they lived for 15 years. In 1898, he bought the farm where he died and this has since been the family home. Here, he and his beloved wife have loved and labored, building a home of charm and wonder, for it is filled with good literature, music, flowers and the things that make the finer things of life. With ideals the highest, with the real love of Christ in their hearts, with thrift and industry they have builded even better than they knew. They have instilled in the hearts of their children all of their fine qualities. Eleven children blessed this union. Ten are left to comfort and cheer the little mother. They are: John H. Schneider, Kelso, Wash.; Mrs. John Hillebrand, Urich, Mo., Jacob Schneider, Mrs. Clyde Burgert and Mrs. John Gill, Kansas City; Mrs. Garland Jones, southeast of Clinton; Louis, Benjamin, Philip and Miss Charlotte Schneider, at home. There are 13 living grandchildren. Mr. Schneider has one living sister, Mrs. Louise Haussler of Los Angeles, Calif. He was a member of the Evangelical church at St. Charles, in his youth, after moving to Henry county attended the German Reformed Church at Willow Branch until the Mt. Carmel Cumberland Presbyterian church was organized, then he and his family united with it and worshipped there. At the time of his death he was a member of the Mt. Carmel Presbyterian church. Mr. Schneider was a Christian of the highest type, putting the teachings of the. Master into everyday living. Nobody in need was ever turned from the Schneider door hungry or cold. Even in the days when he and his wife were getting their start, when it became known to them that neighbors or travelers were in want they would be given whole hams and sacks of flour. The giving was from generous hearts, with humility and thanks to God that they had been strong enough to earn it, so they could have it to give to those in need. He was a natural leader, finding life about him a continual school. He studied the soil and intensive cultivation. He was not satisfied with the mediocre in life. How fine it would be if more were like him. He followed perfectly the commands of Jesus for he used every talent he had, a well trained mind and body. He, assisted by his sons, cleared and put into cultivation several hundred acres of bottom land which meant unceasing toil. This rich, fertile land with tile and dykes, has been brought into wonderful productiveness. Defeat was unknown to him, for as he worked, he studied and applied science to his work. The Schneider farm is one of the show places of Missouri. It is a model of thrift, industry and study. Crops are rotated, methods studied, everything possible to Missouri soil is raised. Every inch of the hundreds of acres represents unceasing toil, combined with heart interest. Three of his sons have been his daily companions in plans and work. Mr. Schneider's open mind, his ambition were the same to the last. To these as to other children he always gave wise council. But by them the fineness of his life is reflected, for few, indeed, are the fathers who can make their professions so worth while and above other things that they are followed by their sons. The charm of the Schneider fireside was unequaled. Love reigned supreme. The family have lived for one another. This is the first real break in the family circle, for the only child who died was very young. Unusual is it for parents to live to see ten children grown and occupying positions of trust and honor. The home never looked more beautiful than that beautiful June morning last week, when the death angel visited it. All was in order both inside and out. The books and papers he had read were folded away, his hands were at rest. Only recently he told his wife, "When you follow me, you will find peace." There was not a shadow of doubt in his mind about eternity. A man whose word was good as his bond. To those behind he has left a character untarnished, an honor unquestioned, an influence that wills you to live up to the best there is in life, and as the years go by, you will understand how it was he had no fears in passing from this life into the Great Beyond. In his youth he became an accomplished violinist and with the many other things gave lessons. Happy were the days of his youth when he delighted his wife and children with his playing and the singing of the old time melodies. He was also a forceful writer, and for years contributed to the Missouri Ruralist and Coleman's Rural World, telling in a helpful, practical way of his agricultural experiments. He was preeminent as a citizen, he studied government and laws and was ready at all times to help with constructive work in his own township, county, state and nation. He early saw the need of good roads to develop a country and advocated them not only in public, but by actual work on them. A spirit and life like his does not die, it goes on through countless generations. The funeral services were conducted at his late home Tuesday afternoon by Rev. A. N. Lindsey, after which his body was laid in Englewood. The services were held, awaiting the arrival of the son, John, from Kelso, Wash.

Oak Hill Cemetery, Butler, Bates Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Sep 21 2006 - Eunice Catherine Schussler, 86, Butler, died August 29, 2006, at St. Joseph Medical Center in Kansas City. She was born on a snowy Easter Sunday April 4, 1920, on a farm near Germantown to Louis and Caroline (Cook) Westhusing. It wasn't until her 8th birthday that she celebrated her birthday again on Easter Sunday. Eunice's schooling included grade school at St. Ludger's in Germantown and two years of high school at Johnstown. She wanted to be a nurse, but quit school in order to help her mother. After having four brothers, a highlight of Eunice's life was the birth of her baby sister Arlene. She worked at Grace's Cafe in Clinton prior to her marriage to former classmate Cletus Schussler in 1946. Two daughters were born, Doris Ann and Darlene Sue. Eunice settled into being a housewife and mother, gardening and canning in a house lacking modern conveniences until moving to a modern house on a farm east of Butler in 1962.

For church dinners, Eunice provided the angel food cake, a tradition that will be carried out by her longtime neighbor and friend Hazel Lesmeister.

Eunice then became a phone friend and with her cell phone was able to continue friendships with relatives and friends who looked forward to her calls. Eunice became quite resourceful and was able to continue with cooking, housework and involvement with two card party groups. Failing sight did not deter her from doing most things about the house, including having Easter and Christmas holidays, making chocolate fudge, butterscotch fudge and peanut clusters. Her granddaughters looked forward to enjoying her meat loaf at the family dinners. Most of Eunice's life was spent in caring and kindness to others. Living near the Butler hospital, she was able to easily hear the helicopter and prayed for each patient transported. A devout Catholic, she usually attended a daily mass and prayed the Rosary.

SCOTT, Henry S. Geyer
1850-1935
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Henry S. G. Scott Passes - Henry S. G. Scott, a respected citizen, succumbed to an attack of heart failure and diabetes, the later having afflicted him the past seven years, at 5:15 p.m. Thursday at his home on East Ohio street. He had been able to be about his home and the neighborhood, however, until last Sunday, since when he had been confined to his bed. He suffered the last days and had a premonition of the end, but it came and he went quickly and without struggle. Henry S. Geyer Scott was born in St. Charles, Mo., December 11, 1850, and as a young child came with his parents to Benton county settling on a farm 7 miles south of Leesville, on the Henry and Benton county line. He attended the old pay school of the neighborhood and worked on a farm when, until the restlessness of boyhood seized him and hoeing corn grew too irksome, he started for Texas, walking all the way, which trip took him four months. There, an elderly country doctor and his wife took him into their home, but when an old Indian, Ghore, lured him to the frontier with thrilling tales of the exciting and rugged life further west his roving spirit could not resist, so he was outfitted with a cowboy's equipment, sombrero, heeled boots, flannel shirt, chaps, cartridge belt with so many round of ammunition that he could not carry it all. In the 13 years he was in Texas he was home once, between the seventh and eighth years and on that trip met at Nevada Miss Lillie Scott whom he later married. When he reached home, his two dogs that in the 7 years he had been gone would not let a stranger on the place, came to meet him a half mile from the house. He climbed on a fence, thinking they would tear him to pieces, not wanting to shoot them, but coming closer they crouched and whined and rolled over until he recognized them. He could hardly get to the house for the dogs clambering about him. In the afternoon of November 25, 1879, Henry S. G. Scott and Miss Lillie Scott were married at Nevada by Rev. D. C. Hunter, lifetime friend of both families. They came on to Clinton the same afternoon and stopped at the old Heckler House before continuing out east to his father's farm, where they stayed until spring. They then moved to a farm nearby where they raised two crops but as they neither one liked farming, loaded their household goods all into a two horse wagon and came to Clinton. Evening coming on they stopped at the old Irvin Couse grocery, a frame building on the site of the present defunct Clinton National bank building, got some groceries and having heard about the Kate Royston property, 306 West Ohio street, next door to the old Kate Rogers property (her mother's home) they drove there and took up their abode living there some 20 years. Mr. Scott went into the broom making business with E. D. Canan, later traveled, selling the brooms as their business grew and finally owned the business. In 1899 he went into the grocery store with his brother-in-law, O. W. Knisely at the corner of Ohio and Seventh streets. There for many years they enjoyed a fine business and the children of the east end of Clinton were warmly welcomed in their "copper" shopping on the way to and from school or in vacation time. Mr. Scott retired from the store for several years then went back to it for three years time, selling out in 1928, July after a very slight stroke. He had in the meantime built a residence at 612 E. Ohio, then in 1915 the modern and comfortable home at 306 East Ohio street, where he and Mrs. Scott have continued to live. There, surrounded by friends and the love of a devoted wife, Mr. Scott spent his last years, generous and kindly disposed to all people, interested in the little folks of the neighborhood who loved him greatly in return. He was ever a loyal member in the Southern Methodist church, and his good, fine life is elegy enough, speaking for itself. The funeral services were Saturday. He was carried to rest in Englewood.

SCOTT, John Raymond
1922-2006
Lowry City Cemetery, Lowry City, St. Clair Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Nov 15 2006 - Funeral services for John Raymond Scott, 84, Deepwater, were held Saturday, November 4, at First Baptist Church of Lowry City. Burial was in the Lowry City Cemetery. John Raymond Scott of Deepwater, died early Friday morning, October 27, 2006, at Sioux Falls, South Dakota cardiac care facility from complications from a heart attack and congestive heart failure. He died doing what he loved, pheasant hunting with family and friends in the beautiful South Dakota countryside, in the midst of the harvest, and among the corn and bean fields that give life to that magnificent American game bird, the ring-necked pheasant. This 40th annual South Dakota hunting trip proved to be his last, but it renewed for him his love for family and friends, for small town, rural America, and for the great outdoors that he cherished so much. The Jim and Bonnie Literrick family of Howard, South Dakota, was his "other family", a family that he dearly treasured and their neighbors were his "northern cousins". John Raymond Scott, or Raymond as he was popularly known was born July 2, 1922, in Ogden, Iowa, as the second child of John Edward and Grace Myrtle (Crawford) Scott. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 64 plus years, Mary Catherine (Roy) Scott; his elder brother Crawford Edward; his younger brother William Donald, and his younger sister Lois Jean (Scott) Vincent. Survivors include his remaining sibling, brother Eddy Lee Scott, as well as four daughters and four sons and their spouses, Art and Judith Pamela (Scott) Neuenschwander of Deepwater, John Edward Scott II of Henderson, Nevada, Raymond Crawford and Carol Scott of Springfield, James Michael Scott of Lowry City, Jeanna Marie (Scott) Selvaggio, Joplin, William Glen and Michelle Scott of Belton, Rebecca Caye Scott and Douglas and Lois Janelle (Scott) McCall, all of Joplin. He is also survived by 22 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandson and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Raymond was raised in the Kansas City area but spent many weekends, holidays and summer school vacations in the Deepwater and Lowry City area visiting relatives and working in the hayfields and cornfields, putting up hay and cutting corn by hand. He often said, "Hard, manual labor was a good incentive to stay in school and get a good education." But, what really brightened his eyes and quickened his smile was to listen quietly on the knee or at the arm of the elders who told tales of old about the years gone by. Grandpa and Grandma Scott in Deepwater and Grandpa and Grandma Crawford, across the Osage River at Valhalla near Talley Bend, were some of his particular favorite story tellers, but his aunts and uncles filled in the missing links. He loved visiting his "country" cousins, for all of the rascally young boy escapades that a pair of bib overalls, bare feet and the great outdoors can provide. The richness, but simplicity of farm life with the fried chicken, apple pies, feather beds, homemade quilts and lots of Grandma Love were memories he cherished throughout his life. He was graduated from North Kansas City High School in May 1940 and began working fulltime for his father in the construction trades. But, October 11, 1941, proved to be the luckiest day in his life. On that day, he was united in marriage to his wife of 64 plus years, Mary Catherine Roy, a fellow graduate of North Kansas City High School from the Class of 1941. She was an absolute gem, the rarest of finds, who gave him eight wonderful children, and loved him and cared for him like no man could ever deserve. And then came December 7, 1941, the beginning of World War II for the United States of America. His older brother, Crawford, of whom he was inseparable as both youngster and as a young man, was killed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor while stationed as a US Marine on board the USS Arizona. This devastating and unprovoked attack on the Hawaiian Islands resulted in American men from all walks of life rushing to the enlistment stations to serve their nation. Raymond enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1942 and served as a Technical Sergeant with the 879th Engineer Aviation Battalion, constructing tactical runways and roads in the China-Burma-India Theater until his discharge in late 1945. He was happy to return to civilian life and to his wife and firstborn daughter Judy. He returned to the construction trades with his father who was involved in several post-war residential housing tracts in Kansas City (North) and who later built the Jefferson Park and Washington elementary schools in Clinton. Later, he began working for other construction companies as a carpenter foreman, a bricklayer and brick foreman. Then, he went on to become a commercial construction project superintendent, a co-owner and ultimately owner of his own company, Westport Construction Company of Clinton. A few projects upon which he worked, or built, include Whiteman Air Force Base residential housing; elementary, vo-tech and high schools in Gower, Clinton, Archie, Greenwood, Ruskin Heights, Sherwood and Holden; as well as Overland Park, Kansas. Other notable construction projects included the Golden Valley Hospital, the Wetzel Clinic and the Westwood Nursing Home of Clinton, the Warsaw Clinic, and nursing homes in Concordia and Laurie, and several other communities. Simply stated, his professional career was dedicated to completing high-quality commercial projects for the citizens of many West Central Missouri communities until his retirement in 2002. Upon his return from the service in 1945 and like many young men of his age and working in the construction trades, he fell prey to the intoxicating and addicting lure of alcohol. It started simply as an after-work drink with the boys, followed by a Friday night end-of-the-week relaxing celebration over a few beers, that transitioned into whiskey, wine and an oppressive life-controlling downward spiral into drunken addiction. He fought a hard battle with the bottle through the 1950s and the 1960s and for lengthy periods was sober as a judge. but, the temptation and alluring attraction of casual drinks with several successive friends or business associates over the years would inevitably draw him back under its spell. He couldn't stop. He was a drunk and he knew it, but he didn't know at the time what his drinking had done emotionally and psychologically to his wife and children over the years. Finally in 1973, at the loss of a good friend from a tragic auto accident related to his friend's drinking, he admitted defeat and checked himself into the St. John's Hospital Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Clinic in Springfield. This period of clinically supervised self-examination, psychiatric counseling and medical assistance coupled with his fervent prayers to God for freedom from this curse allowed him to finally break the chains that bound him. His prayers were answered. It was a glorious day for him and his family, a glorious day that he shared with many, including his newfound friends in Alcoholics Anonymous, an organization that he joined and remained a member of for several years of fellowship and encouragement among all involved. In closing this chapter of his life, he would want to say to each of you, for the sake of you and your family and your friends and your employer, please don't fall prey to alcohol or drugs. And if you have, seek help, through medical care and through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Early in his adult life and with the sponsorship of his father, Raymond became an active member of the Masons, the Scottish Rite and the Shriners in Kansas City. A member of the Lowry City School Board in the 1960s and 1970s, he served as president of the board for several of those years. He would lead the board in budgeting and financing for the new school year and would lead the discussions in the hiring of new superintendents of schools and numerous teachers, but he was never happier or prouder than when he was able to present high school graduation diplomas to his children, his nieces and nephews, and many of your relatives too. He also was a member of American Legion Post 604 of Lowry City and was involved in their various state and national conventions, as well as many local community projects. He particularly loved the Summer Youth League Baseball program and the various teams of young boys living out their dreams of being major league stars, the Pee Wees, Little League, Babe Ruth, American Legion and Ban Johnson. And, of course, the Memorial day weekend barbecue and baseball event was quite an undertaking, but a real delight for him. A member of the Lowry City Optimists Club, he served as president and later as lieutenant governor and undertook several community betterment projects in and around Lowry City. He donated the materials and helped in the construction for the bleachers and concession stand at the Lowry City baseball field. He sanded, refinished and repainted the basketball floor for the Lowry City Gymnasium. He never forgot his high schoolmates and kept in touch over the years with many of them. An avid bird hunter and fisherman, he loved Missouri quail hunts and South Dakota pheasant hunts, as well as catfish and bass fishing in Missouri lakes and ponds, and trout fishing at Lake Taneycomo. Raymond was saved by faith in a motel room in Clinton, Iowa, while working on a construction project in that area with his father. He attended Wright's Creek and Shady Grove Baptist churches and was later baptized at the First Baptist Church of Lowry City. He served as a church deacon of the First Baptist Church for several years in the mid to late 1970s. He was a Southern Baptist who shared his solid rock faith with many among us, who was firm and unshakable in his conviction of the irrefutable truth of the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The sermons of Charles H. Spurgeon, the noted English Baptist minister of the 1880s, were often an inspiration to him. He was a conservative Republican of Eisenhower and Reagan vintage who believed in limited government powers and the strength of local self-governance. He was a proud American, who served his country in time of war and would challenge each of you to find your own personal way to serve your country and your fellow man, as well. He was an avid reader, a lover of American history and a well-informed voter, who insisted on you and me exercising the honor and privilege to vote in this unique and wonderful country of ours. He loved genealogy and was fascinated by the extended sense of family. He had traced his Scott family line and heritage back to the birth of his 5th great-grandfather John Scott, born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1706. He was a generous man. He would argue with you in one breath and give the shirt off his back the next. If you needed a dime, he'd give his last nickel, and go borrow the other one for you from someone else. He helped various church missions and charities like the good Samaritan Home for boys, north of Springfield. He took no particular pride in his own living circumstances, but gave of his resources freely to others. And, also know, as many of us do, he was in general, highly opinionated, often argumentative and sometimes just outright cantankerous. His son John, said that in discussion or debate, his father often exhibited all of the flexibility of well-set concrete.

Life Work Of Mrs. N. E. Scott Over - It was on Saturday night near the time of Sunset, at 6:20 p.m., April 28, 1928, that the life work of Mrs. N. E. Scott was ended at her home on Rogers Avenue. August 31, 1927 she was first stricken with a cerebral hemorrage. Then it was thought perhaps she would not live, but she got better and went home with her daughter, Mrs. Mont Bornard, to Salem, Mo., where she got much better under the tender care, but she was not satisfied to be away from her afflicted husband or her aged mother, so returned in three weeks. In February this year she was again stricken and got better, but the fatal illness came just about a week previous to her death. She was concious until Thursday and knew her children and granddaughter, when they arrived. Mary Jane Stanton was born June 4, 1859, at Smith Bend, what was then Benton county, but what is now St. Clair. There she grew up learning the virtues of womanhood from one of the best women in the world, her mother, Mrs. James Stanton. She learned how to be a real neighbor; being good and kind were more important than the eternal rush for wealth. The result of this training every life was made better with whom she came in contact. She was united in marriage with N. E. Scott February 14, 1877, at the family home near Leesville, by the late Rev. Thos. Briggs. They lived near Shawnee Mound, then came to Clinton, which has been her home for near 40 years. Mr. Scott was employed at the White Swan Mill for many years. To comfort and care for the bereaved husband are the following children - James W. Scott, Phillipine Islands; Milo B. and John Scott, Lawton, Okla.; Mrs. Mont Bernard, Salem. There are nine grandchildren. One, Wyota Lee, the eldest daughter of Milo Scott, was raised by Mrs. Scott, as she was a very frail child and her parents being in business were unable to give her the proper care. All the grandchildren would rather come to her home than any place else in the world. She also leaves her mother, Mrs. James Stanton, who is 88 years old and who has lived with Mrs. Scott a number of years, and the following brothers and sisters - John Stanton, Goodland, Kas.; Alec Stanton, Benkelman, Neb.; Mrs. John Smith, Smith Bend; Mrs. E. Wallen, Eldorado Springs, Mo. She was converted at the age of 19 and united with the presbyterian church at Leesville. She also belonged to the Women's Circle of G.A.R.

He is survived by his wife Hazel of the home; three children, Lenny Scott and Larry Scott, and one daughter Sandra Spooner, all of Clinton; one sister, Evelyn Scott of Clinton, and six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. - William Douglas Scott (Scotty) was born in Archie, Missouri on October 8, 1920. At the age of 85 Scotty went home to be with his Heavenly Father. He was preceded in death by his parents, George Franklin Scott and Lena Noble Scott. His sister, Evelyn, resides at Westwood Nursing Home. Scotty and Hazel Pauline McLain were married October 11, 1941 just three days after turning 21, honoring his parents' wishes to wait until he was 21 to marry. Scotty and Hazel celebrated 64 wonderful years of marriage, blessing one another and together blessing others. Scotty and Hazel have three children: Larry, Lenny, and Sandra. Larry and Georgie Scott, Lenny and Dinah Scott, and Sandra and Tom Spooner all reside in the Clinton area. The six granddaughters that reside in Clinton are Jane and John Minihan, Susan and Bob Hutcherson, Tara and Scott Richardson, Joie Scott, Angela and Matt Lowe, and Halley Scott. Scotty and Hazel have been grandparents to Scott Spooner in Colorado, Melissa Parise in Chicago, and Nick Spooner in Kansas City. They have five great grandsons and two great granddaughters: Annie, Scott, Cody, Douglas, Dillon, Mason, and Suzy. Scotty joined the Army in 1943 and served approximately three years in New Guinea and the Philippines. Scotty started working at P.A. Cowan Lumber Company on June 13, 1939 right after high school graduation. World War II started and you had to have a priority number to purchase lumber and things slowed down at the lumber yard so he went to work in DeSoto, Kansas on the Sun Flower Ammunition Plant for a short while until he was able to get a job back in the Clinton area with the Crowe Coal Co. It was from there that he joined the Army on May 3, 1943 to serve his country. Upon returning home from the war, Scotty went right back to work at P.A. Cowan and was there for 43 years. In Scotty's own words he wrote, "loved every day of it." This was Scotty's disposition and attitude throughout life - he loved every day of it. Two weeks before his death, Scotty was plowing gardens in the neighborhood. He loved to help people, make short visits with everyone; he never met a stranger and liked everyone. After retirement he enjoyed driving cars for the General Motors car dealerships in Clinton and did that until just recently Scotty kept track of miles driven. At one time he averaged 40,000 miles a year moving cars around. Scotty's priority was his family. He loved each one and supported each one by farming, running errands, carpentry work, fixing repairs. You name it and he was ready to help. Scotty also spent each spring helping Larry and Lenny farm several acres while always having time to help all of the kids with moving equipment, baling hay, carpentry work, errands, repairs, and whatever they asked him to do. He enjoyed fishing too. He went to Bennett Springs every March 1 for many years with his good buddies. During deer season he was the official chili maker. Scotty was a cook in the Army. Hazel tells about asking Scotty to go to the store for groceries when he came home from the service. He would buy several pounds of pepper because he was used to cooking for 3,000 to 4,000 people each meal. Church was very important to Scotty. First Baptist Church in Clinton was his church home for over 60 years. Scotty became a Christian right before he was married to Hazel. Scotty loved his family and friends. Just as we celebrate his life here, Scotty is celebrating his new home with his Heavenly Father.

SCULLY, Piety L. BELL
1849-1924
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. Pieta Scully died ather home in Leesville, Mo. Friday morning at 5 o'clock, after a several days' illness with pneumonia. Her only surviving sister, Mrs. Jerome Fewel, of Roseland, was constantly at her bedside during the last illness ministering to every need. Pieta Bell was born in Tennessee. When a small girl she came with her parents to Otterville, Mo., where her father was a merchant for many years, also a Cumberland Presbyterian minister. She was married to Emanuel Scully, now deceased, whom the earlier settlers of Henry county remember as Captain Scully. They came to Leesville in the late sixties and went into the mercantile business with his brother-in-law, Kit Anderson. He remained in business there until he died several years ago. Mrs. Scully was a woman of many virtues. She was generous on every occasion. To children she ever gave. She also gave to those in need and to those she loved. She did not care for money or things for herself, and never kept either. They gave her joy only that she might give. She was of a deeply religious nature, a believer in the Christ and the Father. She had been a member of the cumberland Presbyterian church since her youth, but she always felt at home in any denomination and worked with all the churches in and near Leesville. Her life is outstanding from the fact that every day she lived, she put into practice the teachings of the Bible, giving to those in need, ministering to the sick and afflicted. She spoke fearlessly of her convictions on every occasion, She did not have any children of her own, but her life was wrapped up in her nieces and nephews, and her constant prayer was for their welfare. Hers was a mother heart and when they needed a friend it was to Aunt Pieta they turned. Rev. William Briggs conducted the funeral service at Leesville last Saturday after which her body was brought to Englewood and laid beside her husband.

SEAL, Dwight
1893-1939
Laurel Oak Cemetery (S), Windsor, Henry Co, MO
Unknown Newspaper Clipping, Mar 23 1939 - Tragic Accident takes life of Dwight Seal at Farm Home Tuesday When Scaffold holding lunber gives way - Struck by falling board-neck broken - The entire community was shocked and saddened Tuesday afternoon when word was telephoned into Windsor of the tragic death of Dwight Seal at the Seal farm about 3 1/2 miles north of Windsor on the Knob Noster road. Dwight Seal with his father, Frank Seal, of Windsor had been storing some used lumber in the barn expecting to use it to build a larger chicken house later on. A scaffold had been built of heavy two by sixes on one side of the driveway in the barn and the lumber neatly stacked at each end of this scaffold to take the weight away from the center as much as possible. Dwight Seal and his father and the former's three year old daughter, Lois, had been in the barn working and had discussed the strength of the scaffold and braces. This was about 1:30 o'clock. Mr. Seal and little granddaughter had just gone outside the barn when the scaffold gave way at one end, pinning Dwight under it. Mr. Seal heard him call "Dad, Oh! Dad!" several times, and rushed back into the barn but could not rescue him so called for Mrs. Seal and they gave the alarm and neighbors and passersby responded very quickly and assisted in getting young Seal out, but life was thought to be extinct before he was removed to the yard. In the meantime two doctors who had been summoned from Windsor arrived and pronounced him dead. Upon examination it was found that his neck had been broken, but there were no other injuries on his body. Dwight Seal was a telegraph operator with the Rock Island Railroad and had twenty years seniority but had not had steady work the past five years owing to economic conditions that caused many men to be laid of temporarily. During this time he and his family came from their home at Greenwood, Missouri, to the parental home. Later Mr. Seal improved his farm with his son's assistance and the younger Seal and his family moved to the farm. There was a very close tie between Mr. and Mrs. Frank Seal and their son and his family and very few days passed that the families were not together at some time during the day at one home or the other. Dwight Seal, the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Seal, was born July 13, 1893 at Falls City, Nebraska, and died as stated above Tuesday, March 21, 1939. He learned to be a telegraph operator in his early youth under his father, who has been employed at the Rock Island station in Windsor for many years. Young Seal was operator at Greenwood, Missouri a number of years and while there married Mary Ellen Copeland of Greenwood. To this union two children were born, Gloria, 6 and Lois 3 years of age. He served in the World War and was a member of the Windsor Post of the American Legion. He was an industrious but quiet man, devoted to his family and parents. He is survived by his two small daughters and his grief stricken wife and parents. The funeral service was held this afternoon (Thursday) at the funeral home. Burial was in Laurel Oak Cemetary, Windsor.

Thomas, Appleton City, from a heart attack which seized him a short time before. He was born January 16, 1851, in West Virginia, but moved with his parents near Urbana, Ohio, where he reached young manhood. He came to Missouri in 1879 with his young bride and located at Pleasant Hill, later went to Harrisonville and entered the service of the Frisco railroad. His wife died in 1906, and he married Mrs. Virginia C. Slocum, who died March 25, 1936. Since her death, he had made his home with his two stepchildren, Mrs. Thomas and A. H. Slocum and family at New Franklin, Mo. He worked on the old Blair Line and the K.C.C.&S. and in telling of his record there, the Frisco-Man published at the time of his retirement: "J. M. Seibert, section foreman, Clinton, Mo., who was retired January 16, 1916, upon application for pension, has been continuously in the service of the Frisco and Blair Line since February 17, 1887. Practically all of this time, Mr. Seibert has served as section foreman, having charge of section D-15 at Clinton for the last 24 years. "A remarkable feature in connection with Mr. Seibert's career is that during his 27 years in charge of a section only one personal injury and that a slightly mashed finger, occurred to the men working under him. During this time there have only been two derailments on the sections of which he was in charge and only two damage claims, of very small amounts, were filed because of fire along his territory. Only two steers and one cow were killed and one hog crippled on his section during the period in which he was in charge." Mr. Seibert was passionately fond of children, and to the children of his wife's son and daughter, he was as an own grandfather, taking a genuine interest in their young trials and tribulations, and being equally as concerned with their grown-up problems. His was a kind and sympathetic nature and it was not his policy to turn away anyone who came to him. He was converted and joined the Baptist church when young, and put into practice a true Christian life. He was an earnest and upright man, gentle, yet strong in his determination. His home was the center of his universe, and gardening was a continuous delight to himself and his friends, for he gave it painstaking care, and when the products were harvested he shared them as willingly as he shared his life with his neighbors. Deceased was ever considerate of those about him, which bound his friends and acquaintances closer to him. He is survived by a brother, C. H. Seibert, Urbana, Ohio, of his immediate family, also the stepson and daughter, and their eight children and grandchildren. Funeral services were conducted Wednesday at the Consalus & Peck funeral home. Burial was at Englewood.

She dearly loved her little family. She was converted several years ago and later joined the Methodist church at Coal.

She leaves a devoted husband, dear little Margie and Derrel; a mother Mrs. Zora Lawler; three sisters, Mrs. Lydia McCurley, Mrs. Eula Gray, Miss Ruth Lawler; one brother, Arthur Lawler, all living near; two brothers, Berry Lawler having passed on to the Better Home, four years ago and Luther Clark at the age of five months.

(October 1938) Ben H. Settle Passes On - Long Time an Employee at Frisco Yards Here - Died Suddenly at 5:45 Sunday Morning, Oct. 2 - Ben H. Settle, Frisco car clerk since September, 1916, and who had been driving back and forth from his farm near Lowry City since May, was found in his bed, life's book closed, at 5:45 a.m. Sunday, October 2. He was in sitting position near the closed window, covers wrapped close about him. Stilled blood was yet warm when Mrs. Settle came to call him, thinking he had slept later than usual, and an Eternal peace rested on his face as though his passing had been easy and without pain. Mr. Settle, as have all the others of his family, passed in the month of his birth. He had been at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Earl Wilson, in Clinton Saturday, and had complained of a difficulty breathing, but otherwise seemed his usual robust health, interested in his work and the building at their farm, where they had moved in the spring to make a home for Mrs. Settle's mother, Mrs. Emma Carver, who died there in July. Mr. Settle continued to care to his position in Clinton however without missing a day, making the long drive early in the morning, cutting short his hours of rest and on returning home found pleasure and relaxation in working about the farm where the house, garage, and outbuildings were all new, brick modern and up-to-date. He had worked on the chicken house during the days previous to his death. Benjamin Harrison Settle, the son of James and Martha Settle of Indiana and Ohio, respectively was born October 9, 1887, in Hull, Iowa; one of 11 children. As a young boy he came to Missouri, to near Lowry City, where he was schooled and had his first employment. July 4, 1909, Miss Della Carver became his bride, and one daughter, Imogene, now Mrs. Earl Wilson of Clinton, was born to them. September 1916, Mr. Settle was employed by the Frisco and worked in the office at Lowry City until in 1924, when he was moved to Clinton as car clerk and where his family came two years later. For some years, they made their home at the corner of Third and Jefferson streets, a close knit, happy family, devoted and sufficient one to the other. Mr. Settle was always proud of his home and family and between him and his wife existed a beautiful bond of sympathetic comradeship that idealized their life together. His love for their only daughter was in an emphasized degree lavished on her one little son, Gene Erle, who was a never failing joy and diversion. A man of systematic and regular mode of life, he went daily to the Wilson home for part of each noon hour, and when his work was finished, back to his home where manifold duties occupied him. Mr. and Mrs. Settle had purchased their present farm several years ago and its improvement begun soon after, was his especial pleasure and satisfaction, for he and Mrs. Settle were working side by side and had much ahead of them as well as much accomplished

Our sympathy goes out to the family of William Settles, whose youngest child, Miss Georgia, took sick last Thursday and died on Sunday (Jan 29 1899).

SETTLES, Henrietta
1832-1891
Ladue Cemetery, Davis Twp, Henry Co, MO
The Clinton Eye, Clinton MO, Saturday, Jul 18 1891 - July the 10th brought days of sorrow to the hearts of the Settles family. At noon that day Miss Henrietta Settles departed this life, surrounded by loved and loving friends and relatives. Deceased, after the death of her brother Frank, which occurred a few months since, sought in Illinois at the home of a brother what consolation time and distance might afford, but the loving sister's heart lay buried in the cold earth with the brother she had served so long and well; and she returned to LaDue, knowing the time of their reunion was at hand. Henrietta was 59 years of age; for 40 years she had been a consistent and faithful member of the Christian church. After the death of her father, 17 years ago, she and her brother Frank kept house together up to the day of Frank's death, both remaining single and living true Christian lives, loved and respected by all who knew them. The immediate cause of her death was consumption, though no doubt accelerated with grief. Calmly and uncomplainingly she approached the dark river; fearlessly she braved the chilly depths, for that faithful heart knew that on its other shore stood her redeemer, all powerful to save. And like the other "wise virgins" was always prepared for the day "When the bridegroom cometh." At 12:30 on the 11th her remains were laid to rest in the LaDue cemetery beside her brother Frank, there to await the Fiat of the Creator.

Wednesday, Feb. 28, and gently laid hand on the master of the house, Mr. Settles, who had only a few weeks before passed his 86th birthday, was awaiting the summons, for he had grown very frail, and with his life measure overflowing with honor and good deeds, he was ready for the long sleep. This old home had also been the place of marriage, the birthplace of all his children and his residence four score years, save for the two years he spent in Clinton. James Henry Settles was born Jan. 13, 1853, at Paynesville, Pike County, Mo., and came with his parents to Henry County when a small boy. In youth the fine qualities of his character and mind were manifest and he grew to admirable manhood. April 4, 1877, Miss Rachel L. Hammond became his wife and to them was given a family of nine fine boys and girls whose training and guidance became their life's most important objective. After some years on the farm where the first and finest lessons in practical thrift were instilled, Mr. Settles moved with his family to Clinton when they were given the advantages of high school courses. Two years later he returned to Deer Creek, but even with a fortune lost in the notable Salmon bank failure, soon after the turn of the century, he saw to the finish of the education of his family. To those who frequented it, the Settles home was well known as one of the most interesting, versatile, delightful and hospitable in which to spend long Saturdays, Sunday afternoons or coveted after-school hours. Mr. Settles was frank and kind, jovial and fun loving, yet so wise in management that any situation seemed anticipated and was adroitly handled. Mr. Settles was a devout Christian, active for years at Bronaugh Chapel (Southern Methodist), and of late years had his membership in the Clinton Christian Church. His pastor said of him not long ago that it was not like visiting the sick when calling on Mr. Settles, but more like going to a fount for strength, so stimulating was his conversation, so cheery his manner and so brave his fine heart's courage. Mrs. Settles, beloved companion of his youth and early manhood died Feb. 27, 1922. Mrs. Barbara Markland, charming and kind, became his wife June 23, 1923, and in his second home the same spirit of gracious hospitality reigned as in his first, and his friends were legion. The Deer Creek School house stands on a corner of his farm and it was a highlight of his 85th birthday, when the school children paid him the honor of a special visit and made acknowledgment of his community service. He was active in the P.T.A. until the last months enforced quiet, also was a member of the school board. Mr. Settles had always been an energetic, alert man, busy about the farm, filling his place in life well. He is survived by his widow, three sons, R. J. Settles, San Francisco, Calif.; T. H. Settles, jr., Texhoma. Okla.; M. C. Settles, Atlanta, Idaho; three daughters, Mrs. J. H. Lynch, Buffalo, Mo.; Mrs. E. J. Inloes, Quinter, Kans., and Mrs. C. C. Jones, Clinton, Mo.; 16 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren; One sister, Mrs. Sarah Slavens, of Clinton who is now the only living member of a family of 12.

SETTLES, Rachel Lurinda HAMMOND
1859-1922
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - A Good Woman Gone To Her Reward - Our heads were bowed with grief when we learned that our good friend and former neighbor, Mrs. J. H. Settles, died at 7:55 p.m., February 27th. Between 1 and 2 a.m., Feb. 16th, her husband was awakened by her quiet breathing. He called his daughter, Mrs. J. H. Lynch, who lived there with them, also the doctor at once, but she never spoke to them again, altho she lived twelve days. Her children were summoned and she seemed to know them and everything that went on about but she never was able to tell them so. Paralysis was the cause. Deceased's maiden name was Rachel Hammond and she was born in St. Clair county, Ill., March 1, 1859, just lacking two days of being 63 years of age. Her parents died when she was very young and she was raised by her grandmother, Mrs. Nancy Hammond, who came to Henry county when little Rachel was a small girl. They settled on the farm where she died and this was her home all of her life with the exception of a short time when she moved with her grandmother to other farms and lived a few years, but most of the time they lived on the place where she settled when they first moved here. April 5, 1877, she gave her hand and heart in marriage to Jas. H. Settles. The wedding took place at the old home and that is where they spent nearly 43 years of the happiest married life together. They lived a year in Clinton when sending their children to school, then last year they spent in the West visiting their children, coming back last fall. They took this trip in hopes of benefiting her health. She was married in the same room, where, later, her three daughters were also married. Nine children were given to this union. The following are living to comfort their beloved father: Robert J. Settles, Willows, Calif.; Jas. H. Settles, Jr., Texhoma, Okla.; Mack Settles, Bishop, Calif.; Howard, Longmont, Colorado; Mrs. J. H. Lynch, who lived on the home farm with her parents; Mrs. Clarence Jones, 4 miles east of Clinton; and Mrs. Earl Inloes, Collyer, Kas. All were at their mother's bedside during those last hours except Robert, who was unable to come and Mrs. Inloes, who had one child with the whooping cough. There are also 12 grandchildren. Mrs. Settles was the last of her immediate family, her only two sisters having passed away years ago. Deceased was converted and joined the M. E. church, South, in young womanhood and for years was one of the leaders of the old Bronaugh M. E. Church South. Afterwards she attended the Clinton church at every opportunity. Mrs. Settles was a woman of unusual strong character. She loved her children and husband with a strong love that took them through all kinds of sickness and trouble. Her Christian life was one of rare sweetness and one that is an example for all of us. As a neighbor we knew and loved her. She was ever ready to serve others and sacrifice self. She was hospitable and all welcomed an invitation to this home of true Missouri hospitality. She was industrious, working long after she was able. Her health had been failing for years and all possible was done to keep her with us, but the death angel came and took her to her reward. She is now awaiting with beckoning hands the home coming of her loved ones. Her spirit will guide them all safely home. The funeral services were conducted Thursday afternoon at 2:30 p.m., by Rev. H. A. Wood, a former beloved pastor, assisted by Rev. E. T. Raney, the pastor of the M. E. church, South, and Rev. A. N. Lindsey. Her body was laid in beautiful Englewood.

SETTLES, Richard Wayne "Rick"
1962-2008
Deepwater Cemetery, Fairview Twp, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Feb 5 2009 - Richard Wayne "Rick" Settles was born on March 12, 1962, at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Kansas City. He graduated from Lakeland High School in 1980 and Central Missouri State University in 1985. He was a member of the Assembly of God Church in Clinton, was a member of the local Methodist Chancel Band and his name cannot be mentioned without great joy and memories of the saxophone he used to entertain many while praising God and thanking Him for all His many blessings. In the spring of 1995, Rick was diagnosed with terminal bone marrow cancer (Multiple myeloma). In Rick's personal testimony, he always reminded people that his physicians believed the cancer would be fatal within two to three years. Before any specific treatments could be considered and attempted, he was forced to endure surgery to remove tumors from his spine. And in less than a month after the diagnosis, he made a trip to Kansas City to witness his most prized event, the birth of his beloved daughter, Halle. In the early fall of 1995, Rick fought through two bone marrow transplants and chemotherapy. His battle to recover continued for many months. Eventually he was able to return to Stahl Specialty in Kingsville where he remained fully employed until the winter of 2006. During this time, Rick became a single parent and began a ministry of music through his church and others. In recent years, it was evident that Rick would face more bone marrow transplants, just to provide immediate survival. After countless blood transfusions in May, he began the first of two transplants. On Dec. 23, 2008, Rick lost his human battles and gained his eternal rewards. For more than 14 years, the cancer plagued his body and brought so much sorrow, but it could not take away his joy, peace or faith. Through a terminal illness, Rick was able to know true Christian love and friendship, met so many great people and have so many victories, even in the midst of such pain, suffering and anguish.

SEVERS, Clyde Calvird
1887-1937
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Death came as a generous release to Clyde C. Severs at 11:30 a.m. July 26, 1937, straightening the bent body, easing the lines of pain from the patient face, who had borne ten years of acute suffering. Beginning with rheumatism his malady was only this spring given its correct diagnosis of hardening of the thyroid gland when he went through the Clinic at St. Joseph's hospital, Kansas City, in March. He was told that his remaining days were few and with death walking beside him he returned home, sold his auto paint and body shop May 1 to Sank Price, put his affairs in order, confessed his faith in God and with no word of complaint escaping his lips, lived bravely till the last, even coming to the breakfast table Monday morning, hoping to cause his sister less anxiety. Clyde Calvird Severs was born February 19, 1887, the son of Charles Henry and Mary Elizabeth Calvird Severs, both Kentuckians, who, as young people had come to St. Clair County, Missouri. There they were married and came to Clinton to make their home and here their children were born. Clyde attended the local schools and took part of the high school course, leaving school to go to work. He was of an inventive, mechanical turn of mind and always talked of going to the Kansas harvest fields, to which his mother, one spring gave a reluctant consent. Clyde, with a friend, worked there long enough to get sufficient funds to go further west. He wired a mine in Utah and did various other jobs along the way until they reached California, where he got employment in an electrical shop and learned to make instruments required in their work which had to be accurate and true to the minutest fraction of an inch. The dampness of the California climate was not good for him, however, inducing a kind of rheumatism that crippled him as the years advanced. Physicians advised his return to Missouri, so after two years he came home and went into the Barnett Grocery Company, first as bill clerk, then as traveling salesman and lastly as city salesman. Being so incapacitated with what he thought was a rheumatic condition, he was forced to give up his work and when they offered him a desk job he discovered his eyes had become too affected to accept it. Mr. Severs then became the secretary for the Elks lodge of which he had long been a faithful member, enjoying the association with club members and serving in an active capacity. Two years ago he bought the Moore Auto Paint and Body Shop, directing its business successfully and with good profit until this spring when he was forced to curtail all activities. His work was always don well and with an interest that made for success. He had many warm friends, and was possessed of a considerate, gentle manner that endeared him to his family. He loved his mother with a devotion that made her care and comfort all important to him and she preceded him in death, just six years ago. After the passing of his mother, his sister, Mrs. Bessie Kibbey, came to keep house for her brother and the same sweetness he had given his mother he lavished on Mrs. Kibbey, appreciative of every attention or kindness shown him. Surviving Mr. Severs are Mrs. Kibbey and two brothers, Albert of Lake Charles, La.; and Frank of Omaha, Nebr., and niece, Mrs. Paul McCullom, of Chicago, who arrived Tuesday for the funeral. The funeral services were conducted Wednesday at the home.

SHAFFNER, Luther L.
1858-1934
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - L. L. Shaffner died at the Humansville hospital at 7:40 a.m. Saturday, August 4. He had been in failing health for several years and for some time he had been troubled with pyorrhea, so last December he had his teeth extracted, but since then had never been well. The Sunday before his death he became seriously ill while he and his wife were entertaining guests, and was bedfast from that time until his death. Tuesday of last week he expressed the wise to be taken to the Humansville Hospital in hopes it might help him, but ill health had made such inroads that medical skill, prayers of loved ones, even his own desire to live were of no avail. Mr. Shaffner was born in Harrisburg, Penn., March 21, 1858. His mother was a Virginian and his father of Pennsylvania Dutch descent. So tiny was the new baby that when the parents moved to Springfield, Ill., some time later he was still so small he had to be carried on a pillow. In 1868 Mr. Shaffner came to St. Clair County with his parents, who settled on a farm which is still known to day as the old Shaffner place. Here Mr. Shaffner lived 40 years. At that time he bought a farm in Henry county southwest of Deepwater, which he owned at his death. It is now occupied by Hazel Sanders. The Shaffners lived on the Henry county farm until 1922, when they moved to Clinton so the children might attend high school. Mr. Shaffner's first marriage was to Miss Susie Graham, who died. He was married the second time to Mrs. Mary Montgomery of Deepwater, February 4, 1919. This marriage was unusually happy as Mr. Shaffner was the acme of generosity to both his wife's children and their little Mary, who came to bless their home. He was never partial to one but loved each with the same devotion and watched after their welfare as carefully as their own father would have. Mr. Shaffner is survived by his beloved wife, their one child, Mary, age 14, and four stepchildren, Phillip and Miss Lillian, of Osceola, Paul of the home, and Mrs. Ralph Snyder of Detroit, Michigan, all of whom loved and respected him. He delighted his stepchildren and own daughter with his tales of the pioneer days and interesting incidents of his own life. Humor added the bright and helpful touch to his life, and he was always pleasant to be with. "Well done" can truly be said of the life's work of him who now is at rest. Honesty, kindness, a love and devotion to his hearth and the desire to live so that he would be a fine example to any who came in touch with him. These were the beacon lights of Luther Shaffner's life. Although Mr. Shaffner was frugal in his own living, he was a generous provider for this family and kept them always comfortable and happy. In his business dealings he was always fair and honest, thus winning the respect and confidence of his business acqaintances. It is said that he never had a debt that he did not pay because he never bout anything that he could not afford. He was a heavy stockholder in the now defunct Bank of Deepwater. On topics of the day, Mr. Shaffner was well-informed and was always a ready and intereting conversationalist. He was greatly concerned about the drouth and business conditions. By belief, Mr. Shaffner was a Presbyterian. Funeral services were conducted at the home on Monday, with burial in Englewood. The pall bearers were nephews of deceased as follows: Fred, Louis and Frank Shaffner, Isaac Warner, Ray and Dick Graham.

Mr. Shafto was gifted with a great sense of humor and he could see the sunny side of life. His second sight had come and the pleasure he derived from his reading was immeasurable. The political news was especially interesting to him, for he had always adhered strictly to the Democratic party and its latest victory was a great delight to him. The trend of the depression was a favored subject for his discussion. The choice of farming as a life work for the deceased was a good one, for in that field he was a success, knowing how to till the soil and make it produce well. He loved gardening and since his health had ever been hale, he was privileged to tend one even last year. Before his illness, his eyes would twinkle with fun when he beat his grandson in picking up an armload of wood and carrying it in. The funeral service was conducted Sunday afternoon by Rev. A. N. Lindsey at the Methodist church in Coal, and his body was laid to rest in Englewood.

SHANKLAND, Emmett Marshall, Judge
1887-1939
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
EMMETT SHANKLAND DIES -- Justice of Peace -- Former Township Assessor -- Fatal Heart Attack Night of Re-Election -- Judge Emmett Shankland, for 10 years a justice of the peace in Clinton Township, and who Tuesday was re-elected to office was seized that evening with a heart attack just as he was retiring and the end came at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, there being little hope of recovery from the first visit of his physician. Judge Shankland had not been well for the past year, but never dwelt on his ill health, and was always the same affable, fun loving official who was beloved by everyone at the courthouse. Tuesday, election day, he had come up to the polls at 5:45 a.m. with C. H. Whitaker, Jr., and they had stopped at each polling precinct to see that everything was in order. He had spent a happy, cheerful day, with no opposition for his office and no hint of the Grim Reaper who stood so near him. Life closed for him as he would have had it, and his family and those nearest him are glad he was spared prolonged suffering. He was conscious to the end, his clarity of mind never dimming till his eyes closed in death. Emmett Shankland, oldest son of the late Dr. W. M. and Mrs. Fannie Highnote Shankland, was born June 19, 1887, at Lewis Station where his father was practicing medicine. Dr. Shankland later moved to Clinton with his family where he continued an important figure in town and community life. Emmett was educated in the Clinton public schools and when 18 years old joined the Christian church, where he belonged until a few years ago when he joined the Baptist Church with his wife and son, Robert. Judge Shankland was a reporter on the Clinton Daily Democrat and then went into the insurance business. Nov. 30, 1917, he and Miss Helen Jewell Briggs were married. Two sons were born to them, Billy Pike dying in his fourth year, 1925, at Galveston, Texas, where they had gone for a few years with his mother who was not well. On their return to Clinton, Mr. Shankland was for a time township assessor and was then appointed justice of the peace to fill out the unexpired term of Judge E. A. Gracey and he has been the capable and popular incumbent of the office since, being successively elected by Clinton Township, Judge Shankland, an ardent Democrat, had a clear, accurate idea of political situations. He was a faithful party worker, shrewd and efficient in the discharge of his office. His ready wit and clever humor made him a stimulating conversationalist. He was an excellent judge of character and his interest in people never lessened. He was an untiring reader and possessed a brilliant mind, finding life an interesting adventure and rich in experience. In his home, Judge Shankland found and gave the deepest love and most tender consideration to his beloved wife and son, Robert. Kind, gentle, thoughtful, theirs was a rooftree blessed with happiness and mutual regard. They enjoyed each other and the interest of one was the chief concern of the other two. Mr. Shankland is survived by his wife and son, Robert, and two brothers, Lane Shankland of Duquoin, Ill., and Rex Shankland of St. Louis. At the time of going to press no funeral arrangements had been made. The Wilkinson Funeral Service will be in charge. Call them for the hour.

SHANKLAND, Mary Frances HIGHNOTE
1863-1927
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - MRS. W. M. SHANKLAND'S SUFFERINGS ENDED -- Near midnight, December 27th at her home on East Jefferson street. For two years she had suffered with cancer, which baffled the skill of physicians. When they first learned of it, she was in Texas, with her son, Emmett and wife. She was delighted with the charm of the South, but last June she told them she wished to come home. They felt that she knew her stay on earth would not be long and although the people there were wondrous kind, it was not like the old friends at home in Clinton, so in July, they brought her home, where she was glad to see her friends, and where she awaited the inevitable. Mary Frances Highnote was born at Paris, Ill., July 2nd, 1863, the second daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Highnote. Her parents had come to Clinton several years before, but on account of this being the border country during the Civil war, returned to Illinois for a few years, where she was born, they returning here afterward. She was known to schoolmates as Fanny Highnote, and she grew to womanhood in Clinton. She was exceptionally bright, standing at the top of her classes. After she graduated from high school in 1880, she taught school several years before her marriage. She was a beautiful girl and a general favorite. She was united in marriage to Dr. W. M. Shankland, June 2, 1886. They lived in Lewis Station for a few years after their marriage, where her husband practiced medicine. They then moved to Clinton, and this had been her home since. They lived on Orchard Ave. for many years, moving to the home where she died about 25 years ago. Her husband departed this life July 16, 1916. Three children were given to this union -- Emmett Shankland, of Clinton; Lane and Rex Shankland, of Edwardsville, Ill. One little grandson died about two years ago. There is one little grandson four year old Bobby, who was the delight of his grandmother's heart. He loved her so that during the many weary weeks of intense suffering he had cheered her heart with the sweet thoughts of his child mind, and his love for her. He would leave any play, no matter how enticing, to come to her, also leave her any time she wished. We have never seen more tender or devoted care given to any mother than has been given by Emmett and his wife, Jewell. Their strength seemed to be God-given, to do for her whom they loved. They gave up everything that they might make every minute of her stay as happy and pleasant as possible. Although now their eyes are blinded with tears, there is no regret, for they have given themselves unstintingly and although they grieve, they know that her sufferings are over, as she wished they might be the last 48 hours of her earthly stay. She leaves one sister, Mrs. Ella Jones, east of Clinton, five miles, and one brother, Arthur Highnote, of Harlinger, Tex. Deceased was converted and joined the Christian church about 18 years ago. She was also a prominent member of the Eastern Star, and served as Worthy Matron in 1923. For many years she had been an active member of the Clinton Shakespeare Club. She kept up on every question of the day and knew the political situation nation wide. When women's suffrage came in 1920, she was one of the few women prepared and capable of making speeches during the campaign. She made over Henry county. She was the first woman delegate to represent Henry county at a State Democratic convention, which met at Joplin that year. The funeral services were conducted at the Baptist church, Thursday morning. Interment in Englewood beside her husband and little grandson.

Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Edwin Ray Sharp was born October 8, 1917, in Lowry City, and came to Clinton when he was four. As a lad of 10 he was playing with a rubber and a clothespin when he accidentally shot his eye, which resulted in the loss of sight in that organ. This prevented him from taking an active part in sports, but he loved all kinds of sports, including basketball and baseball. He also liked to bowl and was an expert in that line, being a member of Clinton's bowling team. At the age of 10 he assumed the responsibilities of a man on his shoulders when he took a paper route, and since that age he was practically self-supporting, putting himself through school and bringing home his extra money for his mother. At his death he was employed at the Last Chance Service Station. He tried to take every burden off his mother's shoulders and every trouble that was hers was his, for he always tried to protect her. He joined the Presbyterian church when he was 10 and was a regular attendant at the Sunday school and church services for many years. Helpfulness always characterized his life, and he was always happy, kind and generous. After Ray's death, his mother found among the books and papers of school days a leaflet from a notebook on which he had written "God is glorified not by groans but by our thanksgiving," by Whittle. These words were characteristic of him, and though his mother was saddened by the loss of her boy, the memory of the way he had tried to live this motto lent her new courage. Ray joined the Battery when he grew to young manhood and was promoted to the rank of corporal. He was the Battery clerk and did his work efficiently and neatly. Surviving the young man is his mother, Mrs. Goldie Sharp, and a brother, Billie, who is 14. His father, Walter Sharp, could not be located by radio to inform him of his son's sad death.

He was a very intelligent man as shown in his remarkable "A" average in his younger years through his college years. He loved to be challenged to achieve success. Learning became very natural to Willy. A masterpiece in his mind was always waiting to be brought to life with words or poetry. His smile could light up a room and his enlightening spirit cast a spell on anyone he met.

He participated in body building contests all over Missouri and received a Presidential Physical Fitness award while in school. He loved math, physics, biology, history, Spanish and speech; any subject he could gain knowledge from and teach someone. Willy embraced h is shortcomings to learn more about himself. Although sometimes his feelings were not verbally expressed, he would write poetry that beautifully expressed his emotion. He loved nature -- to walk in a field and smell the earth as it awakes was almost heavenly. He would walk miles to think and pray so that he might live his life the best way he knew how. Each day God gave us Willy was a gift -- a cherished memory! Willy went through some times in his life that were not peaceful by any means, but now he is resting at Bear Creek. Willy will rejoice with nature, his poetry, his music, our love and God that he is now resting in peace. Rest, our child, rest. Funeral services were Sunday, March 2, at Sheldon-Goodrich Chapel.

SHAW, Kathryn "Katie" SCHOCH
1901-1924
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - YOUNG WIFE AND MOTHER DEAD -- The hearts of Clinton were saddened and shocked when they heard that Mrs. Richard Shaw died Saturday evening at 4:30 with scarlet fever and complications. Two physicians, the nurse and her loved ones did everything possible to prolong the life, but the disease was in too serious a form, and the young life returned to its Maker. She was conscious to the last, if as ready and willing to go, thinking not of herself. but of her beautiful baby boy, her husband, parents, brother and sister. She desired that they not grieve and worry for she knew that the land to which she was going they could come. Kathryn Schoch was born in Clinton March 26, 1901. She grew to young womanhood here and was married Richard Shaw November 27, 1920. To this union a son was born, Richard, Jr. who was two years old last September. She leaves besides her devoted husband and dear baby, her beloved parents, Mr. and Mrs. August Schoch, all of Clinton; one brother, William Schoch, of Sedalia, and one sister, Mrs. Howard Rice. of Kansas City. All were at the bedside when the final summons came. Katie, as we all knew and loved to call her, was still but a sunshiny little girl. She was wonderous fair, there not being a more beautiful young matron in Clinton. For several years she was employed in the Busy Bee and during that time she made friends and acquaintances county wide. Her sunshiny welcome was always there. All who knew her loved her. When she was married and went into her own home she retained that sunny nature and delighted in directing the affairs of her household, later in caring for the dear little boy who was hers. Her death is hard on every one of her loved ones, the little fellow is too young to know that the deepest sorrow he shall ever know has come into his life, for no matter who raises him, the greatest loss a child can have is to lose his mother. No matter how kind and good they all may be to him, they cannot quite know in the same way the aches, pains, joys and sorrows of childhood, that is given only to mothers to know. Little Richard is indeed fortunate to have so many loved ones to look out for his welfare. The Comforter will come to them as they minister and care for the little child, who so needs them. Katie had been a devout Catholic all her life, faithfully following the teachings of her church and putting into practice the Master's teaching by always "doing the task that was nearest," happily. Rev. Father Donovan conducted a private funeral service at the late home On North 3rd street Monday afternoon, after which her body was laid in Englewood.

SHAW, Rena Florence THOMAS
1862-1924
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton, MO - "BE YE ALSO READY" Death hath no season. He comes at darkness or at dawn and his dread visitation cannot be averted. Rena F. Shaw, daughter of David B. and Matilda Thomas, was born February 17, 1862, in Scott county, Indiana, later coming with her parents to Clinton, where they located on a farm three miles north of town. When a young girl she united with the Fields Creek Cumberland Presbyterian church and later, after her marriage with the Presbyterian church at Montrose. In July, 1899, she was married to Gilbert Shaw, with whom she spent 20 happy years in Montrose. Mr. Shaw preceded her to the Great Beyond, over four years ago. To them was horn one son, Paul Gilbert Shaw, who is left to mourn her loss together with an aged mother, a sister, two brothers and several nieces and nephews. Mrs. Shaw was a woman of untiring energy and decisive character. She was by no means a one-sided-woman but had many interests and was delightfully human. She was a devout Christian. She belonged to the Sunday School and was one of the few faithful members of the Missionary Society of the old Presbyterian church. She brought to her work a cheerful optimism and practical application that was infectious. She was a home lover and a home maker. Her home was an abiding place for pastors and friends. She loved young people and was never too busy to plan for their advancement or entertainment. Some time before the death of Mr. Shaw, she had a fall, not considered serious at first but the ultimate cause of her death. At first just a little lame, later a cane, then crutches, finally confined to a chair and these last long months bedfast. Her friends could give only sympathy, but how appreciative she was for every kindness. Mrs. Shaw knew every phase of suffering, but she knew Jesus Christ as her Savior and found His grace all-sufficient. In her later years there was a deepening of her spiritual life and the things that are unseen became the realities to her. So strong and tender in her sympathies, so full of hope, so cheerful, few guessed the heavy burdens, the vexing limitations, the physical pain and weariness that were her portion. Earnest devotion to her church together with kindly and helpful interest in all with whom she same in contact, endeared her to a large circle of friends. Great sympathy for her had been felt during the years of her illness and the sorrow of parting is mingled with rejoicing that release from suffering has been granted and that she has entered into her Father's house. The funeral services of Mrs. Rena F. Shaw were held at Sunday, March 30th, at the home of her mother, Mrs. David Thomas, three miles north of Clinton. Burial in Englewood cemetery.

Tebo Church Cemetery, Leesville Twp, Henry Co, MO
AUNT LIZZIE SHEEK DEAD -- The Shady Grove community was saddened Saturday when death took a dearly loved neighbor, Mrs. Elizabeth Sheek, who had spent all her life in the same vicinity. She was stricken February 15 with an illness which developed into bronchial pneumonia, and at 11:52 a.m. February 24, 1937, she peacefully entered eternal sleep. Elizabeth Frances Denny was born near Leesville March 27, 1850, to James and Caroline Denny. At the age of seven her mother died, and in later years when Elizabeth Frances became a wife and mother, she lavished all care possible on her children, longing to make up to them for the things she missed in her own motherless life. Being one of the eldest of a large family of children, and living in Civil War days, her young girlhood was not easy. At one time during the war she helped prepare for burial three men who were shot, and time never removed the scars of those horrors of war from her memory. Late in life she would shake her head sadly and say, "They should not have done it." Mother Sheek's schooling consisted of three weeks at a subscription school and with the aid of those instructions and her speller she learned reading while about her daily tasks of housework. She thoroughly enjoyed reading the Bible, newspapers and good books that she could find time for. To the last day of health, she was interested in world happenings and expressed a wish that the strike then on in Detroit would soon be settled so the men could go back to work to support their families, for she wanted no one to suffer privation. She was ever thoughtful and kind to all who came in contact with her. She read the Bible through several times and it was a pleasure to talk with her on the subject. Her old eyes kindled. her face glowed as she discussed the goodness of God and our privileges and blessings as His children. Mother Sheek had been a Christian since early girlhood and a faithful member of the Tebo Baptist church for many years, being a descendant of charter members. When health permitted she seldom missed a service. She was a firm believer in Christ, the head of the church, and man, the ruler of his household. She was united in marriage to Isaac Sheek, August 8, 1870. Mr. Sheek was a Union soldier and also grew to manhood east of Clinton, living most of his life in Shady Grove vicinity. To this union were born nine children, two infants and two grown sons, Eddie and Morris. preceding her in death. Mr. Sheek also died October 5, 1920, leaving her to go on with the five remaining children, A. G. Sheek and R. I., who reside near the old home; Mrs. W. E. Carleton, Sedalia; W. A., at whose home she passed away, and Laura, who with W. A. took such excellent care of their mother since their father's death, never leaving her alone Malay hours at a time. Mrs. Sheek also leaves nine grandchildren, four great grandchildren, a sister and two half sisters. During her last illness, all five of the children scarcely left her bedside to rest, although A. G., W. A. and Laura were far from well. Mrs. R. .I. Sheek left her home and stayed with them, taking much responsibility of both housework and nursing. All that was humanly possible Was done for her but God called and she went. Her suffering is ended. One of the best of mothers has safely made the harbor on the other side. Mother Sheek was ever busy, nothing being too hard to bear if she could help her children and her great pleasure in late years was getting a good Sunday dinner for them and their children. Funeral services were conducted at Tebo Baptist church Sunday. Burial was in the cemetery nearby under the direction of the Wilkinson Funeral Service.

The Shepard home was an old-fashioned one but was known far and wide for the hospitality of its head. He enjoyed visitors very much and nothing pleased him better than to be surrounded by his friends. He seldom read but delighted in having his wife read to him. Fishing and hunting were also a great source of pleasure and he was a crack shot as well as a successful fisherman. Tebo Creek ran across his farm and he spent many happy hours on the banks of the creek with his fishing pole. Many years ago under the ministry of Rev. Simmons, Mr. Shepard joined the Tebo Baptist church where his membership remained until his death. He was sincere in his worship of the Lord and until late years attended church meetings regularly.

Mrs. Shepard died July 13, 1914, and Mr. Shepard and Mrs. Lena Aiman were married December 9, 1914. She remained a faithful and loving wife to him and mother to his children until the end.

SHEPHERD, George Albert
1842-1934
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - The thinning ranks of Civil War veterans in Henry county lost one of their most beloved comrades and this county one our most esteemed citizens when George A. Shepherd of Calhoun, obeyed the great Commander's summons and entered eternal peace at 3:12 a.m. Thursday, November 8, at his home. Although he celebrated 92 years of life last July, Mr. Shepherd had always been in superb health and was ill only a short time before death. Mr. Shepherd's life was a shinning example of the wealth given to a man when he obeys the Lord's divine teachings - wealth not estimated in figures but in health, long life, happiness that comes from contentment, and respect and esteem of one's fellow beings. He was born July 4, 1842, near Springfield, Ohio, and moved to Lawrence county, Ill., when he was seven. His schooling was limited to three-month terms in the winters in subscription schools, but experience and consistent reading and studying throughout life developed his knowledge to limits not encompassed by school books. Mr. Shepherd's early life was that of the pioneer, strenuous and frugal, yet it resulted in the development of a strong, healthy constitution and a valiant, rugged spirit. When he was 12 he began to work out by the month, attending spelling and singing schools at night. April 18, 1861, Mr. Shepherd enlisted in Co. H., 10th Illinois Infantry for three months, following Lincoln's call for 75,000 militia after the battle at Ft. Sumter. At the termination of his service, he returned home and his two oldest brothers enlisted. He reenlisted in Co. 1, 16th Illinois Cavalry, for three years and fought bravely in several important battles, taking part in the march to Atlanta and the Battle of Nashville, among the most decisive battles. Upon his discharge, he went west and met his future wife, who was Rosannah Sanders, in Missouri. They were married in March, 1866, and a year later came to Henry County, settling about five miles south of Calhoun. Calhoun or vicinity has been Mr. Shepherd's home since. He was a farmer for a time, then was a coal miner. He was justice of the peace 14 years, notary public six years, postmaster at Lewis Station nine years, and rural mail carrier from Calhoun over ten years. He was also mayor of Calhoun six years. His record during the time he served the public was clean and marked an era of achievement for the community. In 1883, Mr. Shepherd was converted, joining the M. E. church at Lewis Station, and became an outstanding religious leader. In the churches he attended, he was always a worker, guiding the uplifting of souls and inspiring others by his example of patience and godliness. He read and studied his Bible each day, becoming one of the bible authorities in the county, through his diligence. He changed his membership to the Calhoun Presbyterian church in 1902, and in 1912 became an elder in this church. Until his last day, Mr. Shepherd's mind was alert and interested and his many friends delighted to visit him. Mr. Shepherd's wife preceded him in death. Surviving him are eight children: Mrs. O. A. Spencer of Windsor; Mrs. Milt Carroll of Lewis Station; Mrs. Percy Fewel, Mrs. L. H. Fewel, Ed Shepherd, and Mrs. Ed Finks, of Calhoun; Will Shepherd of Sedalia and Ernest Shepherd of Harrisonville. Twenty-seven grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren survive. Funeral services were conducted in Calhoun at the Presbyterian church on Friday. Interment was at Calhoun.

Gilead Baptist Church and yet later, to the Calhoun Baptist Church, where he was a faithful member until his death. In spite of his long affliction, he never met a friend pessimistically. His constant companion while in the hospital or home, was his Bible. He never complained of his lot, was always glad to have friends drop in, never complaining of those who did not. His final end came suddenly due to a hemorrhage. Funeral services will be at the Calhoun Baptist Church on Thursday, November 26. The delay is due to the arrival of the son from Butte, Montana.

SHERMAN, Laura E. BUCKINGHAM
1850-1928
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - PASSING OF MRS. A. G. SHERMAN -- Just as the flowers are turning their faces to God the spirit of Mrs. A. G. Sherman, whose love and care for them was so great, took flight and turned to Him, to await her loved ones in the Garden of Heaven. After several months' illness she passed away May 7th, at 1:20 p.m. Mrs. Sherman was born at Piqua, Ohio, July 14, 1850; later came to Clinton with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Buckingham. She was married to Albert G. Sherman, December 8, 1870, who survives her. To them were born nine children -- six living and three preceding the mother in death. The living ones are: Mrs. W. G. Bassler, Zelienople, Penn.; Mrs. C. W. Padfield, Colorado Springs, Colo.; B. G. Sherman, Kansas City, Mo.; Mrs. Floyd Wallace, Minnie Sherman and Carl Sherman, all of Clinton. She also leaves two sisters -- Mrs. Anna E. Codit, Hays. Kans., and Mrs. W. D. Kreamer, Arkansas City, Kans.; two brothers -- T. B. Buckingham, Soldiers' Home, at Leavenworth, Mans., and J. F. Buckingham, Kansas City. The last Sunday in February, the children and one brother, J. F. Buckingham, of Kansas City, held a family reunion with this dear mother, who could still enjoy their visit, and when the end came, they could rejoice that this visit had been planned. Seven years ago Miss Minnie Sherman gave up teaching and came to give her parents the most loving of care. Just as her mother enjoyed starting a plant or slip and nursing it to life from window to window, so Miss Minnie planned joy and comfort for her parents, ably assisted by Clara, who lived just back of her mother. Music delighted her, and the grandchildren, who are so talented, passed many an hour with her in song and melody. Animals, their habits and tricks, interested her, but most of all the roses to slip and make grow was her interest. Children were the supreme delight of Mrs. Sherman, and her grandchildren were idolized and will sadly miss the grandmother, who fairly performed miracles for their childish hearts. This home, started 57 years ago by Mr. and Mrs. Sherman, has always been the neatest and cleanest of homes, surrounded by choice flowers that grew with the love of this mother heart just like her children, who have reached their majority and been a joy to these parents, who guided them into paths of leading citizens and Christian characters. Many a time have we heard of her wanting a home to have flowers so badly that she took a basket of choice plants and with her own hands placed them. The funeral service was held from her late home, where she had lived for 50 years, on Wednesday, by Rev. Wolfe, pastor of the First M. E. church, where Mr. and Mrs. Sherman have held their membership since they were married. The children living away -- Mrs. Bassler, of Pennsylvania; Mrs. Padfield, of Colorado Springs, and B. G. Sherman, of Kansas City, came to attend the funeral.

SHERPY, Elizabeth Isabella THRASHER
1853-1931
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. F. A. Sherpy Called - After an illness extending over a period of five years, death came to relieve the sufferings of Mrs. F. A. Sherpy at her home on South Third street, shortly before noon Wednesday. Mrs. T. S. Washburn, a daughter of the deceased, had been at the bedside of her mother for several weeks past. Every possible thing was done to relieve the sufferings of the aged woman but her ailment, which was enlargement of the heart, was of such a nature as to defy the best of physical care. The disease developed into paralysis of the heart and caused her death. Elizabeth Isabella Thrasher was born at La Crosse, Wisconsin, March 27, 1853. At the age of 13 she and her parents, two brothers, Frank and Charles, and two sisters, Mrs. William Whitworth and Mrs. Harve Hammonds, moved to Clinton, which had been the home of Mrs. Sherpy ever since. On a farm 11 miles north of Clinton, Elizabeth Thrasher was married to F. A. Sherpy, a hardware dealer, at the age of 21. At the time of her death Mrs. Sherpy still owned this farm. She had belonged to the Methodist Episcopal church for more than thirty years being a devout Christian. In her later years, a radio had added much to the pleasure of her surroundings. Each day a program of religious music or a revival was listened to. She was very fond of singing, and loved to hear her daughter, Mrs. T. S. Washburn, sing in accompaniment to religious songs heard over the radio. Her children were raised in an atmosphere of motherly love and religion. Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Sherpy were awarded three children to make their life one of happiness and you. They were: Eugene, who died at the age of 7, Flora, who was married and and died in April of this year, another daughter, Mrs. T. S. Washburn, who was at her bedside at the time of her demise. A daughter's child, now Mrs. R. W. Davidson, of Ponca City, Okla., was raised by Mrs. Sherpy. A last request of the deceased was that she have a short funeral with the song "Face to Face" sung as she is buried in Englewood as near the grave of her son, Eugene, as possible. These wishes will be carried out, when the funeral is held Friday morning. Mr. Sherpy conducted a hardware store on the west side of the square, where the Lee theatre now is located, for a great number of years. The store was a partnership of Haysler and Sherpy. Later Mr. Sherpy was the proprietor of a hardware store on the east side of the square. He had as a partner in this business enterprise, W. H. Stone of Appleton City. The business of Mr. Sherpy always prospered under his expert care. Death called the aged gentleman from his labors many years ago.

At the inquest, it was decided that he came to his death by drowning in the well, at 823 East Franklin, while mentally deranged.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Feb 24 2011 - Jacqueline F. (McGee) Shipe, 82, Sun City West, Arizona, died Wednesday, February 16, 2011, at Gardiner Home in Phoenix, Arizona. Jackie was born May 8, 1928, at Kansas City, Research Hospital. Her father was Louis McGee whose family fled Ireland during the potato famine and went to Glasgow, then to the United States in Missouri. Her mother was Leona Foster whose family came to the United States from England in the 1800s. Jackie had an IQ of 155 (genius category). She was the first person in her family to go to college and graduated from Weber University in Ogden, Utah. She had a BS in elementary education with a minor in library science. Jackie and John met in aeronautics class in Westport High School in Kansas City. They were married April 12, 1947, and would have celebrated their 64th anniversary this year. John and Jackie knew each other for 65 years and she waited for John to come back from WWII, England, France and Germany. They had three sons together: Dwight David Shipe, Douglas Vincent Shipe and Steven Andrew Shipe. David was Assistant Director of Cessna Aircraft in Booten, New Jersey; Douglas is a CPA/ MBA and a former IRS Agent; Steven is a manager for I.B.M in Boulder, Colorado. Jackie finished college while her three boys were in school all day. She worked for Clipper Mfg. Co. in Kansas City and became the manager of the ordering and shipping department. She then worked for I.B.M. in Huntsville, Alabama, as a research librarian for the Saturn V project to the moon. Jackie then invested 15 years in Longview Community College as a reference librarian in Lee's Summit. She was an ardent fisherman and fished with her husband, John, in Canada and five states in the U.S. Jackie was also a good golfer and won money almost every week at Stardust Golf Course. Jackie read constantly, at least two books a week. She and John traveled to France and Germany and also twice to England. They also took their three sons with them (age 14, 16 and 18) to Europe. While in Italy the family was stranded in line at the Basilica and an Italian father came out and got them out of the long line to take them on a personal tour of the Basilica.

Their history professor was Mary Pearl. Jackie and John loved each other very, very much and John will miss her so, so much.

SHIPE, John Joseph
1927-2014
Englewood Cemetery (S), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jul 25 2014 - John J. Shipe, patriot, died on June 30, 2014, at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center, Sun City West, Arizona, age 87. A graveside service was held Friday, July 18, at Englewood Cemetery, Clinton. He was born March 12, 1927, in Kansas City. He was the son of Henry Spillman Shipe, a Kansas City police, officer, and Ona Colwes. After serving in the Army in World War II, he returned to Kansas City to spend his life's work in the defense and space industries. He married Jacqueline Frances McGee in 1947, who died February 16, 2011. The marriage produced three sons: Lt. Dwight David Shipe, pilot and avionics, manager for Cessna who passed in 1980. He is survived by Douglas V. Shipe, CPA, MBA, CGMA (wife: Pamela) of Lenexa, Kansas, and Steven A. Shipe (wife: Kanyawan), computer server tech, and their sons, Nick and Ray, Westminster, Colorado. John's career began as bugler and Morse Code/radio operator during the war in Germany. Upon his return after the war, he worked for Southwestern Bell which taught him electronics. Within a few years and without a college degree, he began designing test equipment for the nuclear bombs produced at the Bendix plant in Kansas City. By 1960, he moved the family to North Ogden, Utah, to be one of many engineers designing the inertial guidance system for the Minuteman missile, the first solid propellant rocket. He developed special expertise in designing the rocket engines of the Minuteman and the "O-ring" booster separation techniques. John warned for many years the Challenger shuttle was being misused below temperature specs and would explode someday because the O-rings were not designed for cold temperatures. He was greatly saddened when that happened in 1986. In 1965, his rocket engine knowledge led to his working with Werner von Braun and Arthur Rudolph at the Marshall Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The rocket engines of the Saturn V, still the most powerful ever built, were designed and built in Huntsville. John invented a historic breakthrough on the Saturn V engines to create a heat exchanger that would move the near absolute zero solid fuel to a burning gas without going through the liquid stage. His technique is still not clearly understood today, 47 years later, and is currently being researched once again at the Marshall Space Center for possible use in the Mars space trip. The enhanced rocket engine power helped in the success of the 1969 Apollo moon landing. Asked why the Saturn V was so powerful, Von Braun proclaimed, "President Kennedy wants to beat the Russians to the moon and we will do that. But John and I are going to Mars." John's work with fuels at near absolute zero temperatures, combined with his experience in nuclear bombs, magnetism and electronics led to the invention of the nuclear battery in 1970. This nuclear battery was to be used in the golf cart on the original 1969 moon landing. Although the idea was conceived in 1967 at the dinner table, it took three years of proofing before IBM would grant John an invention release on the concept. When his son, David, became an Army helicopter pilot, John left the space race and joined Boeing to improve the reliability of the Huey and Chinook at the Boeing plant near Philadelphia. John returned to the Kansas City area in 1972 to assist in designing test equipment for the world's first dynamic-ram computer memory chips made at Western Electric in Lee's Summit. After a short stint at avionics company King Radio working alongside his son, David, John worked at Lake City Ammunition plant until his retirement in 1986. His remarkable and diverse career reflected America's incredible technology boom. He accomplished his missions with plenty of study, but without a college degree. He was proud of his sons and wife for obtaining professional credentials. John somewhat regretted that he was always too busy inventing, designing, building, testing and repairing equipment to obtain a college degree. He was a doer. He credits a good portion of his ideas to his dear wife, Jackie, whose work as a research librarian for NASA played a significant role. Jackie and John met in aviation class at Westport High in Kansas City. John also credits his elementary school teacher, Ms. Bodenhammer, for inspiring him to reach for the stars. He never forgot his roots and the brilliant people he was fortunate to work with.

Appleton City Cemetery, Appleton City, St. Clair Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Apr 5 1902 - It is the sad duty this week of this paper to chronicle the death of another old and most highly-esteemed citizen of Appleton township in the person of Louis Shoe, who died at the family home a few miles east of Appleton City Friday morning, March 28, 1902. He had been a great sufferer the past year and in such form and degree as to require the constant, watchful care and the close, unremitting attention of the children, whose faithfulness and devotion shown to their father has been the subject of favorable comment. Louis Shoe was a man to whom the highest tribute can be paid--he was an honored and respected citizen, honest, kindhearted and everybody was his friend. He was born in Wuretembirg County, Germany January 9, 1824 and came with his parents to the United States in 1832. Moved to Ohio in 1836 and went to Davenport, Iowa and in 1850 crossed the plains in search of gold, residing one year in California, returning home via Central America, crossing the Gulf of Mexico and coming up the Mississippi. He married Elizabeth Gayman at Davenport, Iowa Feb. 15, 1857 and moved to Missouri in 1881. Mrs. Shoe died Jan. 24, 1901. Of the nine children that were born, seven are living.

Another little son, Paul, also turns to sister Elsie for the cheer and comfort in life. Two fair, sweet little daughters, Artie and Hazel, 13 and 11, completed the home circle. Burial in Englewood.

Clinton MO - WILLIAM E. SHOE AT REST -- The spirit of William E. Shoe went to the heavenly home at 8 p.m. Friday, January 6th. He suffered a nervous collapse about three years ago, but had gotten better until he had an attack of the flu five weeks ago, which went into bronchial pneumonia. He suffered intensely until death came to his release. He was born at Davenport, Iowa, January 15, 1868, so if he had lived another eight days, would have been 65 years old. He moved to Appleton City when a small lad, where he attended school, and was graduated from the Appleton City academy when 17 years old. Mr. Shoe was united in marriage July 10, 1890, to Miss Kate Coffman. Three children were given to this union: Mrs. Forrest Kimball, Oliver and Carl Shoe, all of Clinton. His wife died November 26, 1916, in Clinton. He was united in marriage the second time to Mrs. Lizzie Hanes, September 11, 1923, at Ft. Scott, Kans. They had been schoolmates in their youth. After their marriage, they went to Denver, Colo., where they remained for a short while, then returned to Appleton City where they lived until eight years ago, then came to Clinton to make their home. Mr. Shoe was the capable warehouse manager for the W. F. Crome & Co., Wholesale Grocery, 26 years. He was honest, upright, and held in high esteem by his employers and coworkers. He acted as custodian of the high school after he returned to Clinton, but had to resign on account of his physical condition, three years ago. Deceased was converted and united with the M. E. church, South, about 33 years ago, and was a regular attendant when his health permitted. His children were raised in a Christian atmosphere, with home loving parents, as Mr. Shoe was devoted to his family, and no place was as attractive to him as his own home. Both marriages were unusually happy, and during his declining years, Mr. Shoe's wife has given him the tenderest care and utmost devotion. Not only that, but she has always been a true mother to his children and grandchildren. Her children by a former marriage found in him a real father, and during his illness, worked side by side with his own children, to alleviate his suffering, with their tender ministrations. Besides his wife and three children, he is survived by five grandchildren: Chester and Rosella Kimball, Cleo Margaret, Marilyn and Shirley Shoe. His stepchildren are Grover Hanes, of Deepwater; Mrs. Maud Lawrence, Clinton; Mrs. J. M. Lipscomb, Beatrice, Nebr., and Mrs. Nellie Henderson, Blairstown; and a step-granddaughter, Mrs. Mildred Jenkins, of Butler. Mr. Shoe leaves two brothers, John Shoe, Sacramento, Calif., and David Shoe, Joplin; three sisters, Mrs. Esther Rainwater, Trinity, Tex.; Mrs. Edgar Clark, and Mrs. Mary Johns, Des Moines, Iowa. Mr. Shoe and his first wife took into their home and hearts, many years ago, their motherless nephew, John Audrey Shoe, at the age of nine days, and kept him until he was 15 months old. He now resides in Sacramento, Calif. Mr. Shoe's home has meant much to the community, and it is always open for good and fine things. His grandchildren were the joy of his life, and although, they knew that the end was near at the Christmas time, the little people went to his bedside and recited their Christmas recitations, to his immense delight. The funeral was conducted at the late home, Sunday afternoon. Burial was in Englewood.

She was married to Daniel Shomaker, February 1st, 1870. They resided in Kentucky until 1882, then emigrated to Missouri. Eight children were born to this union -- Eva L. Darnell who passed away in 1919; Luella of the home; Malva Sullivan and Katie Sapp of near home; Edith Cordry and Clarence M. of Carthage; Linnaeus E. of Sedalia, Mo.; and Cyrus E. who died at the age of three years.

The children except Mrs. Claude Cordry, were all here to care for their parents in their last sickness, and were here for the funerals. Mrs. Cordry is bedfast at her home in Carthage, having recently undergone a serious operation. We realize that that dear old home will never be the same again. Grandpa and Grandma did not get away from home much the last few years, but how they enjoyed company and especially having their children, the grandchildren and the three great-grand babies come to see them.

Bear Creek Cemetery, Bear Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton Missouri, Feb 22 1902 - Mrs. Shoemaker of Montrose, who would have been 72 on February 19, died suddenly at her home about 7 p.m. Monday, the 17th. She had moved to town and was keeping house and taking care of three small girls, daughters of her son, "Bud" Shoemaker, who lives in Bear Creek township, while the girls were attending the Montrose school. The two smaller ones had gone to bed upstairs. The other girl was in the room with her grandma and the old lady sat down by the grate to warm her feet before going to bed. Suddenly she fell out of her chair and the girl in the room ran to her and pulled her away from the fire or it is likely she would have taken fire and burned. She called the children from upstairs and then ran for help. Dr. Wallis was summoned, but could afford no relief and she died. The Dr. pronounced it heart trouble. Her son was notified and came at once and a message was sent to two other sons who live in Clinton, which they received just in time to catch the train due at Montrose at 9:30 p.m. Two daughters living out west in Colorado were notified but because of recent snow storms they were afraid to start for fear they would get snowbound. The body was taken to Bear Creek Cemetery on what would have been her 72nd birthday. It was a bad day for a funeral, as it snowed nearly all day.

Clinton MO - HEBE SHOMAKER'S LIFE WORK ENDED -- Hebe Shomaker asked his daughter to bring him a drink, then said, "I will be ready to go in ten minutes," then with a radiant smile, at the stated time departed for another Home, about 4:30 Monday morning.

Mr. Shomaker, for 16 years previous to his illness a year ago, was foreman of the Henry County bridge gang.

No matter what happened, he faced life with a smile, even in those days when a broken limb forced him to lie in bed for several weeks in this past year, and in the latter months when the twilight shadows of his life lowered. Honest and jovial, and generous with kind words and smiles, that was "Hebe" Shomaker. He idolized Mary Louise, now Mrs. James Dixon, the granddaughter who had been in his home since she was six years old.

SHOMAKER, Lancelott Carr
1852-1939
Bear Creek Cemetery, Bear Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - L. C. Shomaker Dies - Heart Attack is Fatal to Prominent Farmer and Democrat at His Home in LaDue - The joy of sharing happiness and the unusually close bond of love between him and his family were so great, that although prepared for the Heavenly Home, L. C. Shomaker, prominent farmer, said on his deathbed, that although 87 years old, life was sweet as he was active in mind and body with vision and hearing good. Earthly ties were severed at his LaDue home at 4:55 p.m. Tuesday, November 21, 1939. His home was a sanctuary of kindness and thoughtfulness for one another - their ties so strong that he fought death and age to keep the happy circle intact. Mr. Shomaker had suffered a number of years with heart trouble, having had four bad attacks. His jovial disposition radiated friendship. His children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren preferred his company to all others. His fatal illness, a week before death claimed him, followed a joyful romp with one of the little ones, then during his last days, they clambered happily over his bed, to their mutual pleasure. His was an understanding heart, and he had the ability to read a child's heart, saying and doing those things so cherished by children. L. C. Shomaker was born in Kentucky, October 21, 1852, and came to Missouri when a young man, locating first in the vicinity of St. Joseph. He came to Henry County 57 years ago, making his home in Bear Creek and Davis Townships, where he became a prominent farmer, specializing in fine horses, feeding Whiteface cattle and hogs. about 29 years ago he moved to LaDue which had since been his home. He married Miss Anna Elizabeth Collins, who with charm and hospitality, made their home a joy to neighbors and the friends of their children. Four of their nine children survive: Mrs. D. I. Borum, Mrs. C. N. Cowden and C. C. Shomaker, all of Pasadena, Calif., who arrived for the funeral, and Mrs. G. W. Neil of LaDue, who was ever near her father. His first wife died when Mrs. Neil was three years old and from that time on he was both mother and father to his family - giving them devoted care. February 15, 1910, he married Mrs. Maggie Miller, who is devoted to his children and was to her husband. She survives; also 16 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren; a brother R. L. Shomaker of Springfield, MO., who was here for the funeral; two sisters, Mrs. Maggie Sharp of Denver, Colo., and Mrs. Frank Hannah of Columbia, Mo., nee Miss Cordia Shomaker, former Clinton teacher, who is bedfast with a broken hip. Proud of the fine traditions of his native state, Mr. Shomaker, like all true Kentuckians, loved fine horses and as a youth showed his horses with the best at the fairs, bringing home many ribbons. His fine saddle horse, Mack, age 28, for several years a horse show winner, has been his faithful companion since he broke him to the saddle 22 years ago. As a horseman he showed his Kentucky breeding. He erectly sat in the saddle and both were familiar figures to neighbors as they were almost inseparable. Just a week before his death, Mr. Shomaker rode his beloved mount to his wife's farm. A prominent citizen of Henry County, active in the Democratic party, he had an intimate and thorough knowledge of state and national politics, knowing every state and national man participating in governmental affairs. He enjoyed discussing current happenings with his family and the day before his death while talking with his daughter, he said he thought President Roosevelt would be elected to the third term. However, it was his opinion that Roosevelt, whom he called the greatest president America has ever had, would not voluntarily run for this office again but Mr. Shomaker believed the people would elect him over his will. Not only a brilliant conversationalist but a pleasant companion, he had a joke for everyone and never had anyone seen him angry. He kept silent if there was nothing kind to be said. He was converted many years ago and united with the Bear Creek Methodist Church, where he served as steward, and in other official capacities. The funeral services were conducted at the Bear Creek Methodist Church Friday. Burial in the cemetery nearby.

SHOMAKER, Mamie
1885-1903
Bear Creek Cemetery, Bear Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Feb 1903 - Mamie is Gone - The black winged angel of death has again visited the home of Bud Shomaker, snapping the strong cords of parental love, taking from him the one whom he most trusted. Surely the hand of affliction has been laid heavy upon this home. Some three years ago his wife was taken from him leaving the care of his family upon his oldest daughter, Maude, who faithfully discharged her duty in caring for her younger brothers and sisters. One year ago Jan. 15th, Maude was taken from the home, and once again a sad gloom was cast over the home, thus made desolate by her death. Now the care of the family and household fell to Mamie the oldest daughter. Well and faithful did she perform the duties entrusted to her, ever looking and caring for the little ones that were left without a mother. Nine months ago the hand of affliction cane upon Mamie. Little did she think at this time that her life would be taken from her so soon. Hemorrhage of the lungs was the first signs, then followed with other symptoms until it soon developed into consumption of short duration. Realizing that she could not get well she tried to be as cheerful and pleasant as she could, always seeming pleasant to those who came to see her. Within a few hours of her death she told those that were with her that she could not live but a little while and wished that the Lord would take her and thus her suffering. Surely she was a faithful Christian sufferer. Death came to her at eleven o'clock, Feb. 6, 1903, age 18 years. Thus ends the life of one so young, but he who is wiser than us all has said "Suffer it to be so for when I bring a cloud a bow shall be in the cloud to give place to sorrow and grief." May this heart broken family gaze with delight upon this beautiful bow of promise. Her remains were laid to rest in the Bear Creek cemetery 'mid the sorrowing crowd of those who loved her most.

He had been visiting his daughter, Mrs. Marion Steward of near Coal when he became so ill that she realized her father should be near a doctor, so she brought him to Clinton Monday, since which time he had been confined to his bed and slept away just before the dawn of a new day. The end, though feared, came sooner than his daughters anticipated. Charles Hershey Shopp was born December 4, 1871, at Plattsmouth, Neb., the son of sturdy Methodist farming families and as a boy began to learn the art of tilling the soil in a productive, progressive way.

Mr. Shopp came to Missouri in 1926 and from about 1928 to 1932 was employed on the Bob Barr dairy farm in Independence, where he was valued in various capacities, for he was not only a good farmer with an embracing knowledge of livestock but a good mechanic, blacksmithing and carpentering being both hobbies and side lines. Mr. Shopp was well known in the Garland community where he had worked for many farmers in their fields or as mechanic. He became a Baptist while he was in Independence. He was a good and kindly man, generous with all his talents and material assets, ever ready to make a piece of furniture, or an implement for some neighbor who needed a bit of help. A devoted father, his children were loving and considerate and blessed his declining years. Surviving are his two daughters, Mrs. Bertha Mae Russ of Clinton, Mrs. Marion Steward of Coal, and one son, Charles R. Shopp, of Imperial, Neb., who will arrive Thursday for the funeral.

SHORTHOSE, Harriet Elizabeth McCALEB
1837-1919
Maplewood & Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Mrs. Harriet Elizabeth Shorthose, the subject of this sketch, was born near Richmond, Va., May 15, 1837. Her family name was McCaleb, which indicates that her ancestors came from Ireland. She attained the high age of 82 years, 2 months and 18 days. For many years she was known in her family circle and her community as Grandmother Shorthose, and was admired by everybody as a good woman. At the age of 15 years she had become a Christian and a member of the Christian church. Her children and friends tell of her that her life was a life of consistent Christian service. She was always a great bible reader and through her years became so well acquainted with the Book that it was a daily companion of hers and a constant guide and comfort. On April 11, 1856, at McLean City, Illinois, she was married to Herbert Shorthose. To this union were born 12 children, 6 sons and 6 daughters. Of these children 5 daughters and 4 sons are living. About 37 years ago, her home was made at Brownington, Mo., and here among her children she lived almost continuously. Her sons: William H., James, Charles and the daughters - Mrs. Robert Fifer, Mrs. M. J. Kerrigan, Mrs. E. J. Slattery and Mrs. Val McElwee, live at Brownington; George lives in Kansas City, and Mrs. Lizzie Gillespie, lives at ElDorado Springs. All these children, 20 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren, one half brother, Andrew Lewellen, Lima, Ohio, and one half-sister, Mrs. Mary Waffelle, at Lawrence, Kas., and many friends mourn the passing away of this good woman. Her husband's death occurred July 9, 1898, reaching an age of 76 years. As Grandmother Shorthose had reached high age, she could converse very interestingly on events of our country's history. These events were really interesting to her, for she had lived through them. She could thus converse about the Mexican war, the Civil War, the Spanish-American war and also the Great War; the United States presidents from the first Harrison to Wilson, were all characters that figured in the country's history during her life time. One of her grandsons, Russell McElwee, was a soldier in France. It was her fond hope that she might life to see his return. All through the years, her health had been of the best until this spring when signs of decline became apparent. Among her loved ones, ministering to her comfort, she passed the last months very cheerfully, but as one prepared to obey the summons when they should come and willing to abide, if such should be God's will. To the writer of this sketch, who visited her a number of times, she made the remark, "82 years seems a long time, but it is only a short time now that it is past. Life is sweet. I shall be glad to live on awhile, but am willing to go when God wants me." As remarkable was her life, so was the close of her career. She had seemingly recovered from her late affliction and her family and many friends had gathered at her late home on Saturday evening of Aug. 2nd, and at her request a number of her favorite songs were sung. All her children except one, were present. After an evening of music in which "Shall we meet you up there" and "It is well with my Soul" were sung, this family reunion came to a close at about 12 o'clock. It was the last one for Grandmother Shorthose on earth. The family retired except the daughter-in-law, who watched at her bedside. Soon some moaning was heard and in about an hour her condition grew more serious. Soon the messenger of death called and she passed away peacefully at 3:15. Let us think that she heard the invitation "Well done, Grandmother, come up higher." On Monday evening, Aug. 4th, her funeral services were held at the family home in South Brownington. Her remains were laid to rest in the Brownington cemetery to await the resurrection morning.
