“When Mother (Carrie Hathaway) was seven and Aunt Ella was eleven their mother, Susan (Rowray) passed away. (1874) They had adored her and their lives were never the same again.  Their father (Thomas Hathaway) left the five children with his parents, Thomas Sr and Sarah (Brown), and went West and traveled for years.

Grandfather (Thomas) Hathaway was a Seventh Day Adventist minister and he preached to the people as he traveled about the country.  He came as far west as Oregon during his travels and visited in most of the western states.  He carried a muzzle-loader shotgun with which he hunted.  He traveled by raft on the rivers and at times traded with the Indians.  He brought back Indian craftworkand he gave Mother (Carrie Needham) a pair of buckskin beaded mocaasins (sic) and a beautiful beaded purse which are still among the family keepsakes.  Later in his travels he went to Arkansas and Oklahoma, including the Ozark mountain region.  After Euell (Needham) was a young boy Granfather gave him the shotgun which Euell used for years to hunt with.

                    After Grandfather (Thomas) Hathaway grew older he quit traveling and lived with his children’s families.  He was loved by all of them and was always welcome in their homes.  He helped Mother (Carrie Needham) with the babies and work around the home.  She had a rocking cradle for her babies and Grandpa would set by the hour, rocking with his foot and singing to the babies.  He also lived with Uncle Charley (Hathaway) and Aunt Ada in Iantha, Mo., and helped take care of their youngest children.  Grandfather had a Civil War pension of $12 a month and he bought all of Lucy’s (Needham) baby layette.  He was an inventor and made  lots  of models.  He sold an invention of a well-driller when he was a young man and  it was still in  use in Missouri when he died.  He died at Uncle Zach’s home in the summer of 1910 and was buried at Media, Illinois.”   Florence Serena Needham
