THOMAS, Matilda A. MERANDA
1845-1931
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. David Thomas At Rest - The spirit of Mrs. David Thomas passed into eternity Monday evening at 11:10, as quietly and sweetly as she had lived, 85 useful kindly years. Matilda A. Meranda, daughter of Warren and Charlotte Meranda was born in Scott county, Indiana, November 10th, 1845. She departed this life September 14th, 1931, age 85 years, 10 months and 4 days. March first, 1860, she was united in marriage to David B. Thomas, whose demise was in July 1921. To this union 7 children were born. One daughter died at the age of five years. Three other children who preceded her in death were: Mert Thomas, of Denver, Colo., Mrs. Lillian Fenimore in Montrose, and Mrs. Rena F. Shaw, of Clinton. The children living are: Ed Thomas, Deepwater, Will Thomas, Appleton City, and Mrs. Willie Scherff of near Clinton, with whom she made her home and where tender care and devotion was such a comfort in her declining years. Besides the three children left to mourn her going there are 19 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. The grandson, Norman Fenimore lived with his grandmother, and Mr. and Mrs. Scherff. For the past four years Mrs. Thomas has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Willie Scherff and Mr. Scherff, north of Clinton. Previous to Mrs. Scherff's marriage, mother and daughter resided on their farm two miles north of Clinton on Highway 13, just beyond Land schoolhouse. This home nestled in the curve of the road, was where Norman Fenimore, age four days, came to cheer the lives of Mrs. Thomas and daughter, after the death of his mother and Mrs. Thomas' daughter, Mrs. Ed Fenimore in 1919. A tiny brown-eyed baby, who laughed his way into the hearts of the entire community and was the incentive and delight of the grandmother and aunt who have lived for and with him - every joy and pleasure, every sadness and hurt have been part of them. The school, play or work this splendid lad, now 12 years of age, has shared with his grandmother, so vividly that her years in this world were extended and made happier. Although frail, Mrs. Thomas attended and enjoyed the closing exercises last spring at Land school, where Norman was a student. Her only regret in discussing the event with Clinton friends was that the time was not long enough to visit with everyone. The hot summer months this dainty little mother rested in the quiet, peaceful home of her daughter and husband; worked upon her quilt patches of which no record has been kept of the number which were choice patterns made from the many beauties of yesteryear. The days were never long, as fancy work made the minutes take wings and each new pattern in magazine or paper was shared with friends, as were the intricate pieces of needlecraft. Four weeks ago Mrs. Thomas was unable to leave her bed - not sick, but tired and worn out like the delicate flowers which perfume the air and fade quietly away. Daughter, sons, grandsons, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law were constantly by her bedside, for she was a mother beloved; one whose life was so closely entwined with their's that it seemed impossible to let her slip away. Gradually less nourishment was taken until Saturday evening she asked for coffee and swallowed just once. Since then she had been in a coma, though she recognized each voice. Without pain and with the sweet smile of peace and happiness this pioneer mother has passed from this life, having left a heritage of love and value. A mother who envisioned her children to see the worthwhile things of life and an artist who painted the world with kindly deeds. What greater monument could any one leave behind? The funeral was held at her late home Wednesday afternoon by Rev. Wm. H. Wolfe, after which the remains were tenderly laid by her six grandsons, to rest beneath a wealth of flowers in Englewood.

Let us say to the bereaved ones, "Earl is not dead but sleepeth. Weep not for he has passed away from toils and care to where, in a few short years, we must pass. We know it is sad to part from one so young and fair, but do not weep, Earl is now waiting to welcome you where there will be no parting. "Be ye therefore ready for ye know not at what hour the Son of God cometh." Dear father and mother, Earl cannot be with you here, you cannot hear his sweet voice of the pattering of his little feet through the house; he has gone to his Heavenly Father, and may it be said to you when done with this earth "Come up higher; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many."

She leaves 50 grandchildren, 70 great-grandchildren and 29 great-great-grandchildren. No matter how great the age of a good mother, or grandmother is, she will be sadly missed, not only by relatives, but by all of her friends, which were many, as everybody, young and old, loved Grandma Thompson and spoke of her, and to her as "Grandma." But why not? When one has lived past the century mark, and all of her days, months and years have been filled with acts of kindness to family, neighbors, and friends alike. Her favorite pastime used to be knitting, but the past few years her eyesight failed, and she couldn't go on with this work. She loved radio and enjoyed a good program and for one of her age could hear well. She was very active until the past two years, as she had to be assisted some, to get about, and she had always had good health and was sick only about ten days before her death, with a cold that the doctors said a child could easily have thrown off, but due to her advanced age and weakness, the Reaper won. Grandma was making big plans for relatives to go to Oklahoma for her 101st birthday celebration on May 2, as she celebrated her 99th anniversary at the home of a granddaughter, Mrs. Waldine Bradley in Parsons, Kan., where she made her home for several years, going to Oklahoma to live December 19, 1933. The celebration of her 100th birthday was at the Urich Park on May 2, 1933, when several hundred of her relatives and friends gathered there to spend the day by visiting and having a big and beautiful basket dinner, and how she did enjoy it, every minute. she went to the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. Tom Swackhammer, that night, and was the first one to get up the next morning. She was asked how she felt and she replied "Fine, only a little stiff." Mrs. Thompson was educated in the rural schools in Henry County, Kentucky, and had a fairly good education for the kind of school they had and the time she had to go. She remembered when they had to go to mill 40 miles way, with an ox team and cart and it took them almost a week to get back home. She joined the Christian church at the age of 16 in Kentucky. About three years ago while making her home with her granddaughter, Mrs. Earl Bradley, in Parsons, Kans., she placed her membership in the Christian church there. Many years ago, Mrs. Thompson and her family lived southwest of Urich for 14 years. This dear little old lady whose height was less than five feet and weighed less than 100 pounds, was a true and loving friend to all, and many people loved to hear her tell of the wonderful changes that she had seen since her advent into this world over a century ago, beginning with ox carts, and seeing the great improvements year by year to the automobiles of today, and she liked to ride in them. She saw many hardships and sorrows in her life, but made the statement that, "I've had enough pleasure in my lifetime to overcome all the sorrows and hardships." Her funeral arrangements were carried out according to her instructions; her body was brought to the home of her grandson, W. R. Thompson, on Thursday, April 26, and funeral services were held at the Hopewell church Friday, April 27. Burial in the cemetery nearby. Pall bearers were all grandsons, W. R.

He was a young man highly esteemed by those who knew him--unassuming in his manners, of industrious habits, and honest and upright in all his dealings.

TILLING, Eva Theresa WESTHUSING
1914-2012
St. Ludger Cemetery, Deepwater Twp, Henry Co, MO
Eva T. Tilling, 98, Lees Summit, MO (formerly of Germantown, MO) passed away Tuesday March 6, 2012 at Kansas City Hospice House in Kansas City, MO. Eva was born on February 11, 1914 in Germantown, Henry County, Missouri, the first child of Frank and Mary (Bettels) Westhusing. She was married to Fred Tilling on February 20, 1935. They resided on the Wiesman farm northeast of Germantown and together had a dairy and stock cattle operation along with poultry and crop farming. She is survived by four daughters, Eloise, Eileen and husband Gordon, Velda and Freda, 10 grandchildren, Robert (Carol), John P., Paula (David), Angela (Gerold), Claudine (Joe), Kristin, John L., Cynthia, Stuart (Kara) and Abigail and 10 great grandchildren, Michael, Elizabeth, Dominic, Nicholas, Amy, Zachary, Julian, Eva, Sabrina and Joey, one sister Aladene and one brother Ludger, many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Fred in 1972, sisters Alice in 1925 and Ida in 1949, brothers Cecil in 1942 and Steve in 2009, grandson Gerald Kavanaugh in 2006 and sons-in-laws Stanley Sickman in 1994 and Paul Kavanaugh in 2011. Eva was a quiet and gentle woman with strong family and religious values. Her family and faith were always the most important things in her life and guided the way she lived. Her love and devotion to the Blessed Mother was instilled in her at an early age and passed on through her good example. Besides daily recitation of the rosary, hardly a car trip was made without reciting the rosary. Her voice almost sounded like a 'chant' as she led the rosary. During the month of May we always had fresh cut flowers in front of the statues of the Blessed Mother around the house. She had a deep faith and trust in God. She received the sacraments and attended Mass as often as possible and used many of the devotions of the catholic faith, Holy water, novenas, stations of the cross, First Fridays, prayed before and after meals, sprinkled the fields with Easter water every spring for good crops. After Palm Sunday she would make crosses out of the palm and place a cross in every building on the farm. Eva made the huge stone house very warm and welcoming with lace curtains along with her delicious cooking, baking and sewing. Her Uncle Louis and son-in-law Stanley said her homemade bread was like cake. Her son-in-law Paul loved her apple pie. Growing up in the summertime on the farm meant you found ways to keep your kitchen cool when you had guests for dinner. That is what many farms had another building called the summer kitchen. On days when Fred had a farm crew in to help with crops and hay, Eva made her pies, homemade bread and the entire meal in the summer kitchen. The main kitchen was used for serving on those days. Eva and Fred always did the milking together morning and evening. When all of us girls left for boarding high school and work, Eva and Fred worked side by side on all the outdoor chores. Together they fixed fences, fed the cattle, cut wood, dug coal for heating and made sure there was plenty of water for the cattle and their friendship grew. Life changed for her after Fred passed away. It was her decision to stay on the farm for 15 years. She and her dear friend and neighbor Mary Rotert talked almost daily on the phone as Mary had already experienced the pain of loss. Mike Murphy, a talk radio host in Kansas City, became a new morning friend. She listened to him to overcome some of the loneliness without her life partner. Her good neighbors, the Rotert's and the Fick's made her feel safe. Her new dog, Trinket, walked beside her anytime she left the house. He watched her as she sat at the table and ate her meals. The minute she got up from the table, Trinket knew it was his dinner time. After fifty-three and one-half years on the farm, Eva moved to Germantown and lived there for 18 years. She took her chickens, continued to make garden and set out lots of plants around her home. At Easter time her home looked perfect with jonquils and creeping phlox blooming all around. It soon felt like home with her many visits from family and friends. Eva was a devoted and active member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Montrose, MO. She was a member of the Altar Sodality and was sacristan for St. Ludger's Catholic Church in Germantown where she washed and ironed the altar linens for 29 years. She received the Bishop's Recognition Award in 1977 for special service to her parish. She also participated in the prayer chain and the annual Labor Day Picnic by helping with quilting, noodle making, cutting pies and table server in her younger years. Other interests included gardening, cooking, baking and she was an expert quilter. She was an honorary member of the St. Francis Alumni Association. Other than visiting family, Eva enjoyed traveling with family to Washington, DC, Virginia Beach and surrounding areas, Amana Colonies and Panora in Iowa, Tyler, Texas, Winnipeg Canada, Door County, Wisconsin, Chicago and St. Louis. She delighted in her grandchildren and great grandchildren and rarely missed a baptism, first communion or marriage. She was the proud baptismal sponsor of four of her nieces and nephews, Artie, Bryan, Janet and Kevin and always enjoyed visiting with them. She lived in her own home until age 92 and then made her home with her daughters Velda and Freda who were her primary caregivers. The funeral Mass will be held at St. Ludger's Catholic Church on Saturday March 10, 2012. Burial following at St. Ludger Cemetery, Germantown, MO.

He was able to cultivate the soil and make plans for the future until his sudden illness. He was united in marriage to Eva Westhusing on February 20, 1935. They were blessed with four daughters. He was especially proud of his two sons-in-law who always lent a helping hand on vacations and visits to the farm.

TILLMAN, Carl Olan
1910-2003
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jun 30 2003 - Carl O. Tillman, 92, Clinton, died Sunday, June 8, 2003, at Golden Valley Hospital. Funeral services were conducted Friday, June 13, at the chapel in Englewood Cemetery. Interment followed in Englewood. Carl Olan was born July 13, 1910 in Henry County, half a mile north of Quarles to Carl Stanley and Cleda Crawford Tillman. He attended Comer Elementary, Shawnee Mound High School and attended Missouri Valley College on a baseball scholarship where he also played basketball. Carl loved to watch sports and especially enjoyed fishing and quail hunting. He fondly remembered the white bass runs on the weir at Truman Lake Dam. He trained his own bird dogs and was proud of several award-winning Pointers. Carl married Sarah Margaret McQuitty of Blairstown on November 11, 1933, and had two children, James R. Tillman of Clinton and Linda R. Tillman Wilson of Urich. He was preceded in death by his wife Margaret on June 11, 2000; a brother Harless Tillman of Quarles, and a sister Ruth O. Tillman of Clinton. Carl and Margaret were charter members of the Leawood Baptist Church, Leawood, Kansas, and were long-time members of the Clinton Christian Church. Carl loved to work and fondly remembered his first job with Reed and Wheelock Paving Co. in 1932, construction the original Highway 13 North. He loaded 75lb cement sacks into the concrete mixer for 65 cents per hour. He was glad to have the job as jobs were scarce with eight to 10 others waiting to have it. Later in 1932, he moved up to operate the finishing machine behind the concrete mixer for Davis Construction Company. From 1934-40 he drove a delivery truck for Skelly Oil Co. that had a pump. Before pump trucks, gas had to be delivered in five-gallon cans, so Carl felt lucky to enjoy innovations of the day. From 1940-1955, Carl worked for Crowe Coal Company, the main employer of the area with over 150 employees. Though non-union, the company paid union scale, so many residents wanted jobs. When Peabody Coal Co. purchased the company and moved the offices to Kansas City, the family moved to Leawood. But when the offices were moved to St. Louis, Carl returned to Clinton as he loved the Golden Valley. In Clinton, Carl and Uel Briggs formed Briggs & Tillman Petroleum Co. and remained lifelong friends. In 1968 he formed Tillman Realty Co. where Margaret and daughter Linda sold real estate for 10 years and had a good time working together. Carl is survived by his son James and wife Carol Elaine Tillman, Clinton; daughter Linda and husband Tom Wilson, Urich; three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, Robert and wife Jan Tillman with three daughters, Katie, Haley and and Brooke, Wheaton, Illinois, Carol Ann Tillman of Chicago, Illinois, John and wife Amy Wilson with son Jack, Kansas City.

TILLMAN, Cleda Maude CRAWFORD
1882-1982
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Almost a century ago, December 16, 1882, Cleda Crawford Tillman (Mrs. Carl Tillman) was born to William Harrison and Olive Chilcote Crawford at the farm home near Clinton. The Crawford house stood almost as a sentinel on this high point. Mrs. Tillman often shared with her own children the joy of looking over Henry County as far as the eye could see and especially the thrill of seeing the lights of Clinton, as well as the sound of the White Swan Mill's whistle, later known as the Larabee Mill. Cleda Crawford Tillman attended Curtis School.. In 1904, Cleda Crawford married Carl Tillman of the Quarles neighborhood. Carl Tillman was the son of Nelson Harless and Harriet Ann Leaton Tillman. Nelson Tillman and his two brothers, Anderson and William Tillman, returned from the Civil War to the farm north of Clinton, where Carl and Cleda spent the first year of their married life. This farm home has continued in the family since Civil War days and since 1945 has been the home of Harless and Elizabeth Tillman, first child of Cleda and Carl Tillman. In 1905, the Carl Tillman's purchased the Bridges farm just across the highway from the Nelson Tillman farm, and it became the center of their family activities for 43 years. In 1924, Mr. and Mrs. Tillman became members of the Quarles Baptist Church. Cleda taught Sunday School classes for many years. After her husband's death in 1948, she remained on the farm until 1949, when she moved to Clinton. Mrs. Tillman continued in her Clinton home until 1976. The next two years she spent in Kansas City with her daughter. In 1978, Mrs. Tillman's health deteriorated to the degree she required skilled, continuous care and then moved to Beautiful Savior Nursing Home in Belton. Cleda Maude Tillman, 99, is survived by three children, Harless, Carl and Ruth. Funeral services were September 28 at Quarles Baptist Church. Burial was in Englewood Cemetery.

TILLMAN, Harless Crawford
1905-1992
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Harless Crawford Tillman, son of Carl Stanley and Cleda Crawford Tillman, was born May 4, 1905, at Quarles, north of Clinton, in the farm home that was purchased by his grandfather, Nelson Harless Tillman, soon after the Civil War. When he was a year old, he moved to the home just a short distance north of the grandfather's farm where he spent his childhood and young manhood until he married Elizabeth Albin Tillman, in February 1928. Then Harless was back to his birth-place to spend all his years in the pursuit of farming, third generation farmer who truly embraced the family motto, inscribed on the coat of arms, Hope sustains the farmer. Harless and Elizabeth were blessed with a son, Temple Harless, who resides in Creve Coeur, Missouri. Marjorie and Temple have a son, Donald; a daughter Shana, who were the pride and joy of their grandparents. He became a member of the Quarles Baptist Church in 1918 where he was faithful, loyal and devoted. He taught Sunday school classes, served as Sunday school superintendent, always challenging the cause of the rural church. He was a member of the first class of Shawnee Mound High School where he delighted in the annual alumni meetings and attended the one in September 1992. After Elizabeth's death in June of 1988, he continued to live on the farm until his health declined to the point he needed some special help the past few months. Since that time, he has been at Clinton Residential Center where he was at the time of his death (December 10 1992). The family is most appreciative of the kind and loving care he received while a resident at this professional new center in Clinton. It is impossible to record the many contributions and influence of a long Christian life exemplified in an upright man. He loved his home, church and community and would want his family to say thank you for your love, support and every kindness during his journey through the years. He is survived by the son, Temple, and his wife, Marjorie, of Creve Coeur; the granddaughter, Shana, who now resides in Overland Park, Kansas; the grandson, Donald, Chicago, Illinois, where he is completing his work for a fellowship in pharmacy; his brother Carl Tillman, of Clinton; his sister, Ruth Tillman of Clinton; nieces and nephews, as well as many cousins, and a host of friends. Family night was attended by many relatives and friends at Consalus Funeral Home Sunday afternoon, December 13, 1992. Funeral services were conducted at Quarles Baptist Church Monday, December 14, 1992. The pastor, Reverend George McConnell, paid loving tribute to one of the long-time members of the church.

TILLMAN, Harriet Ann LEATON
1851-1938
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
MRS. N. H. TILLMAN, 87 DIED HERE MONDAY P.M.--Complications Resulting from Injures in Fall Caused Death--A Member of Prominent Family--Funeral Held 2:00 Wednesday. Mrs. N. H. Tillman, 316 East Ohio Street, who fell 17 days ago, breaking her hip at the socket, and later developing uraemic poisoning; died at 3:45 p.m. Monday, July 4, having contracted double pneumonia the day before. The end came quietly to this fine woman, native of Henry County, who for 80 years had been making friends and within her family had yielded great influence. She had been conscious at times, suffering intermittently and bravely faced the end. Harriet Ann Leaton was born Dec. 8, 1851, three miles south of Calhoun, the daughter of Edward and Harriet Pinkston Leaton, both native Missourians. She was the eldest of five children, and as a girl attended East school. She and late Mrs. Sue Beaty were girlhood friends and studied together. Her mother died when she was about eight years old and on the young Harriett devolved a big responsibility in helping with her younger brothers and sisters. Her father was a wise and patient man, however, and guided his little flock with the care almost of a mother. As a young woman she gave her love to Nelson Harless being married Jan. 26, 1873, and as a bride she went to his farm eight miles north of Clinton now occupied by her grandson, Harless Tillman. Just across the road today lives her son, Carl. Three children were given them, all of whom survive. Mr. Tillman who was by birth an Ohioan, was a natural farmer and came to Missouri with his two brothers, Wm. H. and Anderson M. Tillman, who also farmed near and retired in later years to Clinton. All are now gone, Mr. Tillman passing April 6, 1924, the year after he and Mrs. Tillman celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. They became staunch members of the Corner Methodist church, near Quarles, and later of the First Methodist church at Clinton. She served Methodism more than fifty years, faithful in her support and happy in her attendance as long as her health permitted, and was a cordial hostess to the societies of which she was a member. The years gave them their share of fullness and about 1918 they retired to Clinton, 316 East Ohio Street, which has remained their home. Their daughter, Miss Clara Tillman, lived with her parents and their fine knit companionship was drawn closer between mother and daughter after Mr. Tillman's death. Mrs. Tillman's life followed placid ways, quiet and happy, in which her home loomed the most important thing on her horizon. She was a great lover of music, possessed of an excellent voice, which was no doubt one of the common bonds between her and her husband, for he sang well, and to their children and grandchildren has passed their talent in accentuated degrees. Mrs. Tillman enjoyed the radio, getting much from the broadcasts in which she was especially interested. She was always an active woman, especially in the days she spent on the farm where manifold duties filled each hour but they were never too full for the cultivation of her flowers, among which she loved to work and bring to the richness of blossom. Interest in her garden was her great pleasure and even in a smaller space in town she grew lovely plants. She was a friend to whose lives contacted hers, a good neighbor to those who resided near, and was of paramount importance in her family where her alertness and clarity of mind and concern in all activities commanded the respect of even the youngest. Her humor was also a quality that never dulled. Something of the stalwart force of the past generation make women of Mrs. Tillman's stamp, outstanding characters in today's world. In their passing, incalculable loss comes to all who knew and loved their indomitable strength and resourcefulness--wonderful types of the finest American womanhood, whose children can rise up and call them blessed. Surviving Mrs. Tillman are her two daughters, Miss Clara of the home and Mrs. M. E. Merritt, Calhoun; one son, Carl, north of Clinton, five grandchildren, Tillman Merritt, Cambridge, Mass., and Miss Evangeline Merritt, New York City, Harless, Ruth Olive and Carl O. Tillman in and near Clinton, and two great-grandchildren, Temple and Jimmie. Funeral services were conducted at the First M. E. Church on Wednesday. Interment at Englewood, Consalus & Peck in charge.

Mr. Tillman had for the past four years been in the dairy business on the W. B. Owen farm a mile and a half east of Clinton and, when ill health Made inroads into his activities, he went to a Kansas City hospital in the summer for six weeks. There the doctors found he had high blood pressure, but no apparent organic trouble, hence he came home, and it was hoped with rest and loving care he would improve. But his weeks were numbered and finally, after but a few days in bed, life was snuffed out. Myron Lloyd Tillman was born in Prescott, Linn County, Kansas, August 3, 1881. As a child of four he came with his parents to Henry County, settling near Clinton where he grew to manhood, becoming a well-known farmer, stockman and merchant.

They established their first home on the Roberts farm north of Clinton on the Huntingdale road, where they lived about five years. They then moved to the Nivens farm, northeast of town, so that her parents, who had grown older, could retire. After five years they then bought some 200 acres near Garland where Mr. Tillman fed stock, farmed, and operated a general merchandise store in Garland for the next 15 years. Two sons, Joseph and Lindsay, were born to them and in the fall of 1929 they came to Clinton, where for five years they operated a grocery on North Third Street, which they then sold to T. A. Pharis, going then into dairying which they most successfully operate. Mr. Tillman was a man of great physical energy and vigor, a man of high principles and fine standards, never making debts he could not pay, and living up to his word in all dealings. He was a gifted stockman, sensing values and exercising excellent judgment in the care and feeding of cattle, hogs or sheep. He was a regular reader of stockmen's journals and other publications, making his work his hobby and never losing his enthusiasm for farming.

Schilling of Kansas City, Mrs. Vaughn Quigle of St. Louis, and Mrs. Robert Berry, who is living on the Tillman farm.  Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist Church on Wednesday and the body was laid to rest in Englewood cemetery, beside her husband.  Consalus & Peck were in charge.

William Earl Tillman 1878-1955: The many friends of Earl Tillman, well known retired farmer and stockman, were shocked at his sudden death of a coronary occlusion at his home, about 8 o'clock Saturday morning.  Mr. Tillman, apparently as well as he had been in recent months, had just seated himself at the breakfast table when he toppled over.  His wife rushed to his side and eased him to the floor, then called the family physician.  An ambulance was summoned to take him to the hospital but he succumbed before leaving the home.  Mr. Tillman had been up town and to the elevator the previous day and, though retired, he had plans to buy more cattle for his farm.  He was well known in the cattle business, as well as farming, and dealing in livestock had been one of his major projects.  His quiet reserve and friendly manner made him many friends.  William Earl Tillman, the only child of William Henry and Salenna Morgart Tillman, was born Aug. 15, 1878, north of Clinton, near Quarles.  He was reared there and when a young boy moved with his parents to the Tillman farm, 3 miles north on Hwy. 13.  On Dec. 22, 1912 he married Aldah Langerhans and to this union three daughters were born.  After about 11 years they built their home at 307 East Green where they lived for 5 years before returning to their farm again.  In 1936 they moved back to their home in Clinton but continued to operate the farm until ill health brought on Mr. Tillman's retirement last year, and the son-in-law, Robert Berry, has since managed the farm.  He was a member of the Clinton Presbyterian Church, having completed his term of office as trustee the first of the year.  He was a man of honor and integrity, respected wherever he was known.  He is survived by his wife of the home; three daughters, Mrs. Vaughn (Maxine) Quigle, St. Louis, Mo, Mrs. Robert (Esther) Berry, 318 East Grand River and Mrs. S.T. (Billie Mae) Schilling, Kansas City, Mo; four grandchildren, other relatives and many friends.  Funeral services will be Feb 15 (today), at the Presbyterian Church. Interment will be in Englewood Cemetery under the direction of Consalus Funeral Home.

TINDELL, William J.
1870-1893
Carrsville Cemetery, Big Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
Died, January 20, 1893, William Tindell; son of William and Tilatha Tindell of Urich, Mo., aged 22 years, 10 months and 8 days. The subject of our memoir was born in Lafayette county, Mo., March 12, 1870, and with his parents removed to Henry county about ten years ago. He was the youngest of three brothers. The other two, John, of Kansas City, and Jasper, of Sedalia, were at his bedside when the messenger of death summoned him home. The life of Willie was almost a life of affliction, but Job-like, he bore it patiently to the end. At the age of 18, he had a hard spell of fever, which settled in one of his lower limbs and made him a cripple to the day of his death. A few years after he was attacked with Brights disease, which shattered his remaining faculties of health, the ravages of which is supposed to have ended his career on earth. His home had always continued with his devoted father and mother, who with anxious and tender care, had watched over him in his many years of affliction. He was their youngest - the idol - which attachment had so tenderly bound their affections to. Relatives and friends had he many, and the beaming countenance of Willie shed its rays of light upon all. He was a nephew of Uncle John Dunaway, one of our most esteemed citizens, and often would he frequent our neighborhood, the haunts of childhood days. Three years ago he professed religion, but had never attached himself to any church. He led an exemplary life, and seemed not to dread the finale, when his afflictions might cease and his soul be at rest. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. L. Brown of the Baptist Church, who depicted in pathetic terms the career of one who had so patiently borne up through days of long suffering? He was laid to rest in Carrsville cemetery, Sunday, Jan. 22, 1893, to await the resurrection morn. The parents of the deceased wish to return their heartfelt thanks to friends who sympathized with them in their sad bereavement.

She was bedfast for the last month and for ten days previous to her death all three of her daughters were at her bedside, giving tender ministrations. Hettie Dragoo was born January 29, 1862. Her mother died when she was about 18 months of age, so she was taken in to the home and heart of her uncle and aunt, the late Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Campbell on North Main street, who later built the house now owned and occupied by Mrs. J. S. Arnold at 312 North Main street. There little Hettie was raised to young womanhood with her cousins Allie and Ernie Campbell, and she was as a daughter to the parents of this household and as dear as a sister to the young men. As they grew into young manhood and womanhood the natural talent of the group was developed. A. J. Campbell, the father, was an expert violinist and orchestra leader, and had an orchestra in his own family. Little Hettie was at the piano, sometimes she played the violin; the late Allie Campbell was known to Clinton for many years as the most expert violinist, and Ernie, now of Sedalia, played the violin and cello. Their services were much in demand at all entertainments and they played in church, in all musical events, and went far and near to play for the dances, which were then known as balls. The Campbell brothers and their cousin, Hettie, led in their social set in their youthful days. Hettie Dragoo was married to Marion Treadway in October, 1888. To them were given three daughters, but Christmas Eve, 1896, Mr. Treadway died, leaving his young widow with the responsibilities of parenthood in the rearing of their three young daughters. Mrs. Treadway was devoted to her home and children, was of sunny nature and sweet disposition, with always a smiling greeting for her friends and a helping hand. After her children were married, she gave up her home and divided her time between her children, and her life and interests revolved about them and their children. Surviving her are three daughters, Mrs. C. C. Bookwalter, Kansas City; Mrs. Elmer Fellhauer, Clinton, and Mrs. C. L. Hall, Minneapolis. She also leaves the following grandchildren: Billy, Bob, and LeVergne Bookwalter, Kansas City; James, Betty and Dorothy Fellhauer, Clinton; and Kenneth and Elaine Hall of Minneapolis; also her cousin who was also her foster brother, Ernie Campbell of Sedalia, and a cousin, Mrs. Helen Campbell Bumpas of Windsor, daughter of the late Allie Campbell of Clinton. Funeral at the Sims Funeral Home Monday and the body was laid to rest in Englewood. - Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Hall and two children, Kenneth and Elaine, of Minneapolis, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Bookwalter and daughter LeVergne, of Kansas City; and Mr. and Mrs. Ernie Campbell of Sedalia, were called to Clinton Monday to attend the funeral of Mrs. Hettie Treadway, who died in Minneapolis, Saturday. Mr. Hall, a Montrose boy, whose father was a former superintendent of Henry county schools, is now the proprietor of the Hudson Map Co., at Minneapolis, which makes a specialty of manufacturing maps of various kinds for office walls. His wife was formerly Miss Julia Treadway. Mr. Bookwalter, whose wife was formerly Miss Nina Treadway, is employed by the Jenkins Music Company at Kansas City. E. C. Campbell, known to Clinton friends as Ernie, is located at Sedalia and is now live stock agent for the Missouri Pacific Lines.

TREADWAY, Myrtie M. ROBISON
1862-1897
Ladue Cemetery, Davis Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO , Apr 17 1897 - Myrtie M. Tredway was buried Monday at the LaDue cemetery, after funeral services at the M. E. Church. Her maiden name was Robison and she was born in Pike county, Illinois, Nov. 16, 1862 and died at LaDue April 11, 1897, aged 34. While still small she came with her parents to Missouri. She married Stephen Tredway October 4, 1884. Six children were born; four, with the husband, aged parents, three sisters and two brothers, left to mourn her loss. She bore her suffering so patiently and silently that her nearest relatives had no idea that the end, which is sure to overtake all consumptives, was so near. She was a true woman, honest and upright, with a tender heart always touched by appeals from those in distress. She seldom attended church, due to defective hearing, but she always made it convenient for other members of the family to go and she kept the children in Sunday School. The family is sorry that the minister in charge of the funeral failed to arrive in time to learn anything about her previous history or character but she was a good, pure woman and the relatives can well take consolation in the scriptural truth that the "pure in heart shall see God."

Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Henry Trenary died at his home nine miles east of Clinton, at 9 a.m., Tuesday, September 8. He had been in failing health for several years, and had suffered much. He was bedfast two days previous to his death, which came as a release to his suffering. He was born near Petersburg, Ill., December 17, 1855, and came with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Trenary, to Missouri, 58 years ago, this coming October. They settled on the farm where he died. He was united in marriage with Miss Ursula Elliott, September 25, 1900. This devoted wife survives, and left to comfort her is one daughter, Mrs. May Cleek, who lives near Sparrow, and four sons, Elbert E., of Clinton; Everet, who lives east of the home farm, and Emory and Burton, of the home. These children have devotedly assisted in caring for their father through his illness. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. H. I. Geahart, and one brother, Ben Trenary, both of Clinton, and four grandchildren, Juanita Cleek, Joan, Billy and Audrey Trenary. Mr. Trenary was one of the outstanding farmers and stockmen of Henry county. His home was a delightful place to visit, and the large, grassy lawn welcomed every passerby. For years he had fed livestock profitably, as he thoroughly understood caring for them, and left nothing undone. He was a superior farmer, and kept up the soil fertility on his farm. He was always among the first of his neighborhood to have new machinery, and was one of the first tractor owners in the county. In this way, he developed the interest in mechanics of his sons, until they became authorities on tractors. Mr. Trenary loved his wife and children, and he was the idol of his four grandchildren, as he romped, played, and spent hours telling them stories. He would take his knife and whittle a toy out of a stick, that, to their notion excelled any new expensive toy. His death is a great loss to these four lovely children, whose greatest delight was to visit "grandma and grandpa." The funeral was conducted at his late home, by a minister from Roseland, who had often visited in the home, and was a friend of Mr. Trenary's. Burial was in Englewood by the side of his parents.

It was her aim in life to make each one happy and she was ever ready to lend them a helping hand with their burdens, sickness and sorrow, never too tired or too sick to perform any duty for them that she could. Emory and Ruth, his wife, lived in the home with her, and Ruth, not having any mother, felt all the more nearer to "Mammie" as the girls all called her. Her friends were numbered by her acquaintances. May each of us realize from this example that life is uncertain and death is sure and that God who doeth all things well loves a shining light and called her home. Funeral services were held at the family home eight miles east of Clinton. The body was laid to rest by the side of her husband in Englewood cemetery beneath a wealth of flowers in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing friends.

TRIBBLE, Rittah Leah "Dee" PALMER
1930-2002
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jul 11 2002 - Rittah Leah (Palmer) Tribble was born on September 18, 1930, and passed on to Heaven on July 2, 2002, at Clinton Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, Clinton. Rittah, or as family and friends called her "Dee", was the youngest daughter of Charlie and Senah (Burton) Palmer. Dee, having been raised in the country, loved it. She liked to work in the garden, working in the yard, go fishing or even building a rope swing for her grandkids to play on. She adored and spoiled them with all the love she could give. In her early years, Dee took care of her parents. Her mother was very ill at that time. Then she went to work at the Reynolds Sewing Factory. She worked there many years. On January 16, 1958, she married Roy "Shorty" Tribble. To this union they were blessed with two sons, Ron and Randy. Dee loved spending time with her family, including all the nephews and nieces, great-nephews and nieces, great-great-nephews and nieces. She loved family get togethers, card parties, fish fries or just sitting at the kitchen table staring out the window into the timber. Dee had married a farmer and with that came a lot of work, doing chores inside and outside of the house, not to mention caring for her sons at the same time. In the mid-1970s, the Corps of Engineers was developing Truman Dam. The Corps was buying land and homes that they said would be affected by the back flooding of the dam. So, Dee and Shorty sold their farm house. They built a new home on T Highway and moved in 1976. Several of their family members built homes on that stretch of T Highway. It is known as Tribblesville. Dee loved to go with Shorty anywhere, whether it was taking a drive or him teaching her to drive or fishing. It didn't mater if they caught anything, she just loved spending time with her dear husband. When Shorty became ill with cancer, Dee was relentless in caring for him. Her heart was broken when the Lord called him home on March 27, 1981. Through the years Dee had her ups and downs. It was a very sad time for Dee and her sons, especially Randy, who worked for her farming, when the decision to quit farming and sell the farm equipment was made. A few years went by and Dee felt joy she had not known in quite some time. She became a grandma. Not everyone knows this, but Dee didn't have a driver's license until about 1985. The first time she ever drove after dark was the night her granddaughter, Abby, was born in 1988. It wasn't too long until her second grandchild was born, a grandson, Zachary, in 1991. Dee loved to spend time with her grandkids. She would get down in the middle of the floor and play with them. No matter if she had work to do, they always came first. They loved to go to their "Fun Grandma's" to visit and spend the weekend. That's the way Abby and Zachary will always remember her. Dee always put others ahead of herself, caring, worrying and just being there to help out. She always enjoyed visiting on the telephone, usually May and Lois in the morning and her good friend, Marilyn, in the evening. After Christmas 1999, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her body could not take anymore. She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy "Shorty" Tribble; her parents, Charlie and Senah (Burton) Palmer; one sister, Ethel (Palmer) Grizell, and one brother, Roy Lee Palmer.

TROLINGER, Johnny Major
1919-1943
Aug 1943 - Loses Life In Action - Johnny Trolinger, son of the J. M. Trolingers, Near Calhoun, Dies in North African Area July 14 . The toll of war brought sorrow to another Henry County family Friday, August 13, when Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Trolinger, six miles northwest of Calhoun, received a telegram from the Secretary of War informing them of the loss of their son, Pfc. Johnny M. Trolinger, who was killed in action July 14, in the North African Area. The deep sympathy of the War department was extended the bereaved family and they stated a letter would follow. Johnny Major Trolinger was born near Garden City, September 22, 1919, and he and his family have been residents of near Calhoun for the past 12 years. He regularly attended the Highland Sunday School near there and was a graduate of the Merritt School, a thrifty, homeloving lad, who enjoyed helping his father about the farm. He was employed in Kansas City 6 months before he received his call to service, entering October 24 of last year. He began his training at Camp Wallace and Camp Barkeley, Texas, and from the South was sent to Ft. Devens, Mass, then to Camp Pine, New York, receiving his rank of Pfc. in April. He left Camp Pickett, Va. the last of June, and enjoyed the trip across immensely, writing his family of the unusual sights and experiences on the boat, and was especially pleased that he was never seasick. His last letters home were dated July 2 and 4, and the last one received included all the money he had at the time, and personal instructions, indicating that he might be going into active combat. His letters were all of cheery note, full of questions as to what the family was doing and of things he re-lived in pleasant memories. Thus Mr. and Mrs. Trolinger believe their boy's life was snuffed out in the height of action, his heart unafraid and anxious to do the task that he considered his job. He had told them that when he entered service he would be the best soldier he knew how, and truly lived up to the high standard he set for himself. Surviving this brave soldier are his parents, who feel his fine spirit about their farm where he loved to work with his car in leisure hours or linger about the house when outside work was not pressing; his brother, Carl Trolinger, who lives near by, and his sister, Mrs. Charles Crowley, of Kansas City, with whom he made his home while working there; his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Starks of Clinton, and paternal grandfather, W. H. Trolinger of Belton. Mr. and Mrs. Crowley came to the Trolinger home Friday, after receiving the tragic news. Their son, Mack, has been spending the summer with his grandparents, assisting with the farm chores. - AWARDED PURPLE HEART - Pfc. Johnnie M. Trolinger was awarded the purple heart for bravery and wounds resulting in his death July 14, 1943. The certificate and letter were sent to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Trolinger of Calhoun, R. R. No. 2. The letter stated that the medal would be sent to them. Pfc. Johnnie M. Trolinger was a machine gunner at the time of his death. A letter from one of his pals stated he was killed in Sicily only 15 days from the time he landed in North Africa. The day he was killed, they advanced 15 miles and took three towns. He was a brother of Carl Trolinger, husband of Ruth Brown, who was a student in Windsor High School.

TUBBESING, Henry John Sr.
1862-1941
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Death took the soul of a longtime Henry County resident when it closed in everlasting sleep the eyes of Henry Tubbesing at his home one mile east of Quarles Saturday, June 7, at 9:15 p.m. His grieved loved ones find consolation only in his going that he has been released from a rheumatic illness which began several years ago and in the last months caused complications making him bedfast several weeks before death. Mr. Tubbesing was born August 18, 1862, in Franklin County, MO, where he was baptized and confirmed into the Lutheran Church with his parents, brothers and sisters. Henry County became his future home when he came at the age of about 23 to the Quarles neighborhood to work on the farm for his uncle, F. W. Brader. About five years later on March 10, 1891, he married Miss Isabelle Stutte, also a native of Franklin County, who had come to live with her only sister, Mrs. F. W. Schierenberg, who lived near Quarles at that time, but now lives in Oswego, KS. Their nuptial vows were taken in Clinton then they returned to the farm he had purchased near Quarles. A year later, Mr. Tubbesing built a new house for his wife, replacing the old, and this had since been their home. March 9, 1941, Mr. and Mrs. Tubbesing quietly celebrated their golden wedding anniversary which was on the following day, at their home when he, although even then unable to be active thoroughly enjoyed the day with his wife, their seven children and their families. He was a family-loving man, his affection for them being an outstanding memory to his wife and children now. One of the things that he remarked oftentimes, before his body became plagued with constitutional disease, was that he had never missed a day of work in his life because of sickness. His health had been one of his greatest blessings, which, coupled with his ability, enabled him to become a successful farmer with just intentions and thoroughness. Since his retirement about 20 years ago, his farm has been managed by his sons. With his wife, all his children survive, as follows: Garrett and H. J. Tubbesing, and Mrs. Audie Childers, of near Quarles; Miss Ruby and Charles of the home; Mrs. Floyd Manning, of Jefferson City, and Mrs. R. H. Backman, of Chicago, IL. He is also survived by the following brothers and sisters: John and William Tubbesing and Mrs. Anna Sauerhagen, of Quarles; Mrs. William Ficken, of Cedar Hill; Mrs. Herman Bohle, of Greenville, IL. Two sisters, Mrs. Fred Cordes, Cedar Hill, and Mrs. Valentine Theis, St. Louis, preceded him in death. Funeral services were conducted in Clinton on Monday, and burial was in Englewood Cemetery. Those from out of the county attending the services included Mrs. William Ficken, daughter, Mrs. Kenneth Bonacker, son Herman Ficken, wife and two daughters, Romona and Irene, of Cedar Hill; Mr. and Mrs. F.

Achauer and son, Reynolds, of Warrensburg; Mrs. Floyd Manning, of Jefferson City, Mr. and Mrs. Backman and children, Annabelle and Charles, of Chicago, IL. The latter family remained until Tuesday.

TURK, Edward Carrington
1859-1936
Englewood Cemetery (T), Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Death Of Ladue Man - The last summons came to Edward C. Turk at his home in LaDue, Christmas day, bringing to an end the failing health with which he had suffered several years. He was always active and busy until his health became so impaired he was no longer able to continue with his work, so he retired and everything was done that could be with the kind administrations of his faithful wife, who tenderly cared for him until the end with the help of other loved ones and friends. Edward Carrington Turk, son of Dr. J. G. and Ann Flowers Turk, was born in Milltown, Adair county, Kentucky, July 23, 1859. He came with his parents by steamboat to St. Louis, then went to Holden in Johnson county, Missouri, March 4, 1869, and they settled on a farm near Magnolia with other Kentucky friends. Here the young boy attended the rural school with his twin sister, Clara, and brother, J. S. Turk. After these school days were over, he enrolled at the State Training College at Warrensburg, then went to the Chicago Commercial College where he graduated with high honors. Mr. Turk's father came to Henry county in 1881 and Mr. Turk returned to the farm a short time, but soon engaged in the hardware business in LaDue. In 1889 he moved to Clinton and went into business with the late Albert Steck on the northwest corner of the square, where they operated nine years. When Steck & Tuck sold out, he traveled for a wholesale shoe company from Chicago 20 years, having a western territory and undergoing many hardships to continue his work. Later he made his home in Bloomington, Ill., continuing with the same firm until his health forced him to give up his position. Mr. and Mrs. Turk returned to LaDue where he took charge of the Hurley lumber yard 16 years, beginning in 1923. After it was discontinued, he employed his time in taking care of his farm. He took great pride in his fine orchard of many kinds of fruit and thoroughly enjoyed his work. He possessed fine business qualities, was clear in his thinking, fair in his contentions, and a genius in his salesmanship. To his friends he leaves the memory of a clean, wholesome, sincere personality, and to his wife, son and sister, is left the memory of a man in whom they could find many qualities to emulate and cherish. Miss Luella Allen of Griggsville, Ill., and Mr. Turk were married October 1, 1886, and they were given one son, Allen J. Turk, who survives. Mr. Turk was married the second time to Nannie C. Wilson in Bloomington, Ill. His wife survives, also his twin sister, Miss Clara Turk, of LaDue. When Mr. Turk lived in Bloomington, he and his wife transferred their membership from the Cumberland Presbyterian Church to the First Methodist Church. The funeral was conducted Friday in the LaDue Methodist Church.

TURK, Irene Mitchell
1890-1893
Clinton MO, Aug 5 1893 - But to how few happy households does the death angel come twice and doubly wring the hearts of father and mother and others near and dear by the snatching away of two idolized children. Yet before me lies the sorrowful announcement: Irene Mitchell Turk, died June 2nd, 1893, aged 3 years, 3 months; Louise Rome Turk, died June 23, 1893, aged 18 months. A picture rises before me which I beheld just one short year since, when this household was an unbroken band. Sallie, Irene and Louise, beautiful in appearance, each appealing to the eye of the beholder in a different way, their beauty set off by their dresses of pure and dainty white. They were the cynosure of all eyes and the interest they excited on this occasion was well expressed by one, a stranger, who said: "I want to meet the mother of these lovely children." And now the younger two of them, who in life were inseparable, are no more. Grief and anguish is the portion of those who loved them. Their lives were short but will never be forgotten. Their merry baby prattle is hushed; their eyes forever closed in death but open, thank God, to a brighter, happier life in the kingdom above. There is a loneliness in the mountain home; a little sister bereft of those she loved; two lonely graves in the beautiful California valley. Yet, we sorrow not as those who have no hope for God took them.

Singing at the funeral was conducted by the class of young ladies she had taught so often in the Sabbath school. As they sang some of the favorite songs of their teacher, who was herself a sweet singer, with their eyes filled with tears, one could easily see how dearly they loved her.
