Rural Cassville,
Barry Co., MO
Research Note: Wife of Grant Stubblefield. - Mrs. Ardella (Johnson) Stubblefield was born at Springdale Ark., Oct. 19th, 1876, and came to Barry county, Mo., with her parents, J.W. Johnson and Mrs. Johnson, who both survive her. In 1892, she and Grant Stubblefield were married and to this union, four sons were born, who are; --- Clyde, Carl, Ware and Earle Stubblefield, all prominent young men of this section and the husband all survive her. In the year 1910, at the age of 16 years, she was converted and united with the Corinth Baptist church, near Cassville, and had lived a devoted life up until her departure. She departed this life, Saturday, Sept. 20, 1924, at the age of 47 years, 11 months and 1 day. Saturday morning, her husband, Grant Stubblefield, came to Cassville and remained until about 5:30 P.M., when he returned home, accompanied by his son Carl and family. On arriving at the Stubblefield home, they did not see Mrs. Stubblefield, and Grant said he expected she was over at another peach orchard, a short distance from the home, so he started to go over there, and when a portion of the way, he looked in the direction of the barn, and discovered his wife hanging by the neck, with her feet resting on the ground. They hastily cut her down and carried her into the home and summoned Dr. Chandler of this city, who examined her and said her neck was unjointed and that she had been dead several hours. She had doubled a rope and made a slip noose around her neck, with the knot on the rope to a cross timber or rafter, jumped or swung off of the ladder, ending her life. She appeared to be in the usual frame of mind on the morning of her untimely ending and we understand she had talked of ending her life. She evidently, was not in her right mind or she would not have severed the brittle thread of life, leaving all her loved ones in a cold and cruel world. She was at the critical point in women's lives when such occurrences are liable to happen. Some 15 years ago, she suffered a derangement of her mind and she spent 3 or 4 months in the State Hospital at Nevada. - Death Certificate - Suicide by hanging.
