Jacob M. Kinder Bollinger Co Mo Biography
  • Jacob M. Kinder, a farmer and stock raiser of Bollinger County, Mo., is a native of that county, born in 1843, and is the fourth child of John and Eliza (Abernathy) Kinder. John Kinder was born in North Carolina February 14, 1801. When a young man he immigrated to Missouri, but in 1836 returned to his native State and married. Mrs. Kinder is of Scotch-Irish descent, born in North Carolina in 1805. She is still alive, and has been a resident of Missouri for fifty years. She is a devoted member of the Lutheran Church. John Kinder died at his home in Bollinger County March 11, 1874. Jacob M. Kinder was reared on his parents' farm, and, in his boyhood days, attended the common schools. Just as he was preparing to enter college the Civil War broke out, and he was destined to be educated in the severest of schools, the battlefield. In 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate army under Capt. Clarkson, First Arkansas Battery, and during the war was in Claiborne's brigade. He was under Sydney Johnston, and saw him killed at the battle of Shiloh. He also served under Joseph E. Johnston. Besides a hundred lesser engagements he participated in the battles of Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga and Franklin. He was under fire from Dalton to Jonesboro, Ga., a period of ninety-three days. At the time of the surrender he was at Macon, Ga. In 1875 Mr. Kinder was married to Martha Allbright, a native of Bollinger County, born April 28, 1848. She is of German, Irish and English lineage, and is the mother of two children: Sarah M. and Ureal E. Mr. Kinder owns 200 acres of land, a part of which is as fertile as any in Southeast Missouri.
