FARIS FAMILY REUNION
The Clinton Eye - October 10, 1919
Last Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, Clinton was honored by having in our midst members of the Faris family from all over the United States, who came for the reunion of the Faris family in response to the invitation of our fellow townsmen, H. P. Faris, who entertained with a house party of two days and three nights at the Artesian Hotel. Fifteen states were represented.
The guests were happily housed in this building, cots being placed in the lobby for the men and the ladies of the party were put upstairs.
Mr. Faris was assisted in his duties as host by his daughters, Mrs. Harry Finks, of Clinton; Mesdames Harold Winchell and George C. Lingle, of Cisco, Texas.
The dining room and lobby were patriotically decorated independence of red, white and blue. The meals were served in the beautiful Southeast dining room on long tables. Mrs. Oliver Taylor was chief cateress of the affair and she had about a dozen assistants to help make it a success, as it is a big job to feed about 125 people three times a day.
The last reunion of this family was held in 1913 in Tarkio, Missouri, and at this meeting many of the same crowd came together and also many came that did not even know of the existence of the others. Lasting friendships were formed in a short visit together, as well as creating a closer relationship of the family. There was bound to be much merriment, as big, little, old and young were here. Then the wires and mails were flooded with regrets from those who were unable to be present.
The trip on the fresco plug from Kansas City even seemed short, on which nearly 50 of the kinfolks came down having cheers and much frolic, which did away with the monotony of the trip. The cheerleader was Charles E Wolfe, of Kansas City, who is now in the insurance business there, but who for years has been connected with the Leslie magazine. The cheers were:
- So this is Clinton
- Oh! My! Oh! My!
- Do you ask us
- Who are we?
- We're the branches
- Of the Faris Tree.
This was the other:
- Faris, Faris,
- All are we,
- Faris, Faris, where's H. P.
Now to those who had never attended a large family reunion, it was indeed an interesting place to go. All were comparing family history. Stacks of Kodak pictures, photographs and family relics were brought so that those here could see the "folks at home," as well as the homes and how they lived at home. The location was a pleasant event and it was decided to make the officers permanent and reunions held oftener.
James Holt, of Kansas City, served his country in France, and his cousin Miss Alma Atkinson, of Norton Kansas, served her country as a nurse in France. Last fall he came wounded to the hospital and she was caring for the fellow in the next bed to his, neither knowing the other was there and each having a homesick longing in their heart to hear from home or see someone they knew and they never found out how near they were to each other until the reunion.
Harry N. Faris, of 540 Truman Avenue, Kansas City, Kansas, was made president and Miss Nellie Flack, of Seaton, Illinois, secretary. It is said that Ms. Flack has more knowledge of the Faris family in her head than any other member. It was Miss Flack, who compiled the family tree of the Virginia Branch of the Faris family, whence this reunion comes. There are eight generations from William Faris and Dorothy Johnson Faris. William was born in the County of Down, Ireland in 1784, and came to VA a year later with his parents. This book was printed a year ago and at the time there were 2475 descendants from this couple and 100 wives and husbands.
The regular reunion opened with a prayer by Reverend W. W. Faris of Miami, Florida. Reverend Faris has been a great creature of the Southland and a contributor to the religious papers. Many of the family had for years read his articles, never dreaming he was a relative.
Then the honor roll and the address of welcome by H P Faris, who was there for every minute of it, in spite of the fact that he had just under undergone two operations on his leg.
Honorable John H. Lucas, of Kansas City, Kansas, gave a masterful address, telling of the life of his host, H P Faris, and his intimate knowledge of his character. He said that he knew he would rather sacrifice his life than a principle, and money nor personal fear would not swerve him from a purpose. Judge Lucas' address moved nearly all his audience to tears.
Alexander Keady of Normal, Illinois, made the response to the address of welcome.
After a two hours' recess for the dinner hour, William Davies Faris, of Bellfountaine, Ohio, spoke of the life of Col. Davies Faris, H P's father, whose 100th birthday was celebrated by this event. He was born October 4, 1819. He was followed by Rev. Dickey pastor of the Presbyterian church, who told of the things he had learned from older settlers of Clinton, of this good man's rugged honesty. He died in 1878, but he was known far and wide as a man, who held honesty and uprightness of living as a standard that was never broken. He told how someone offered to pay him a debt on Sunday, but he would not take it, as it was against his religious principles. He also told the story of a wicked man to whom he sold four cords aboard in the fall from wood which was cut in the spring. The bark all came off and after he delivered the wood, he delivered the bark. The man asked him what made him do it, and he said, "why that belongs to you, so I could not keep it" which caused the wicked man to remark, "this is the damnest honestest man I ever knew."
Mrs. Dora Gaston Julian, of Marengo, Ohio, told of life in Ohio, the state of her nativity and told especially of the "Old Blue Presbyterian Church", near her home, which is now 101 yr. old, which her grandfather and grandmother came and establishrf so many years ago, when they went as missionaries to then, the wilds of Ohio.
The preacher blood has cropped up in nearly all the generations of these families and nearly all are Presbyterians.
Sunday morning Rev. W W Faris of Florida, preached a masterful sermon at the Presbyterian church. Then there was dinner at the hotel. He spoke again that afternoon in the lobby. This was followed by a memorial service for all the boys of this family who lost their lives in the recent war, and for the other members in the family, who had passed away.
Norman Faris, Theodore's son, was killed a year ago on October 5, in the battle of the Argonne.
Samuel Davies Faris was named for the Reverend Samuel Davies, a minister, who reproved King George of England for laughing and talking, when the minister was telling the Gospel story, saying that "when the King of Kings speaks, it is time for the earthly kings to b e silent." This dauntless spirit was inherited by our own H P.
Samuel Davies Faris was born at Elm Grove, West Virginia, October. 4, 1819, where he grew to manhood. He then moved to Marietta, Ohio, where he married Sarah Plumer Preston, October. 10, 1844. They then went to Bellfontaine, Ohio, where all of their seven children were born, moving to LeCompton, Kansas, in 1859, then the capital of Kansas. They lived nine years in that vicinity and saw the smoke of Lawrence, Kansas, when Quantrell made his famous raid. In the fall of 1867, they moved to Clinton, which was his home until his death. His wife died in 1911, at the home of her daughter, Ms. Fanny, in Denver, Colorado.
There were 10 children, seven of whom grew to maturity, and four survive: William Edgar Faris, of La Plata, New Mexico, the only one not present at this reunion of the immediate family; Theodore S. Faris, of Ute Park, New Mexico, Miss Fannie, of Denver, Colorado, and H P Faris, of Clinton. There are 15 grandchildren in this family and 26 great- grandchildren.
H P Faris was born on Christmas Day, 1858. He was a real gift to his parents, as he proved a bright, active worker, ready for any tasks, which presented itself, nothing ever being too hard for him to tackle.
At the age of 14 he entered the office of the Brinkerhoff Trust Company. He was just an office boy, but he soon proved by his eagerness to learn and his bright, quick understanding that he was going to the top. The value of a life is measured by how we use our opportunities. They come to meet us, but we are slow to grasp them and wait for something better to "turn up" and in the waiting we lose our chance in winning the race, because the ideal opportunities seldom appears to us unveiled. He made a study of the land, loan, title and banking business and in fact became so well versed that he is looked upon as one of the leading financiers are the State. He knows values of real estate at once, is quick at making decisions, which are invariably correct.
He, like the rest of the Faris clan, is a Presbyterian. To this church he brings the best that is in him. It can truly be said again that he makes the business of his Master first. No matter what the affairs of his business, his church comes first or the work among the poor and needy for he sees his Master's face "among the least of these little ones."
No one is so down and out or so wicked that in time of their most critical need, but when they turn to H P Faris for help they can get it.
Many, both high and low, criticize, but never a one who offers the criticism, is building for the community needs and offering the helping hands like he is.
Four years he has led in the fight for Prohibition, both locally and nationally and the happiest days of his life have been to see this wartime Prohibition. No trip was too hard for him to make to speak on this clause and his money was also freely given.
Since July 17, he has been bedfast much of the time with a severely crippled knee, caused from an automobile accident, but during these weeks he has directed his business with a telephone at his bedside and got ready for this family reunion of relatives that he had planned weeks before the accident.
The guests thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Clinton and the Artesian Park. Sunday night about 20 of the young people of the crowd visited the Baptist Young People's Union in response to the invitation by the President, John P. Smith. Charles Flack spoke on this occasion. He was four years missionary among the Navajo Indians and now is YMCA Secretary of Premero, Colorado, for this is a great coal mining center. Charles Wolfe, of Kansas City; also Ms. Faris, of Paola, Kansas, who teaches Normal Training in the High School, spoke.
Frank Edgar Faris, born April 4, 1919, was the youngest member present at the reunion. He is the baby son of William Earl Faris, a banker at Mancos, Colorado, and his wife.

THE FARIS REUNION
We come from East, we come from West
The members of the Faris clan,
Of all the pleasures, this the best,
The countenance of each to scan;
A true, a sterling worth we see,
Inherent character portrayed,
That for the Faris family tree
Foundation deep and strong is laid.
At Clinton now we congregate
And leave behind our daily care;
We hither come to celebrate
To duly honor our forebears,
Review their lives, their worthiness,
Their messages of faith and love;
The Christian character confess
And point all friends to God above.
A gathering six years ago
Was held that relatives might greet
At my birthplace in Tarkio
And gave the promise of this meet
Since that reunion another died,
My aunt Lizzie and cousin Jim,
They're gone into the farther side
To see our Lord and be with Him.
It fills my soul with joy and pride,
It spurs me on to do my best,
To know whatever may be tied,
I take my stand among these blest;
Why not in 1934
Another celebration be
200th day of William one
Say Harry N and Herman P.!
To Herman P. all praises be
For making possible this crowd
This year the anniversary,
We chant this anthem long and loud:
He gave us this Artesian Park
With its Hotel, so full of Room
That feast and fun should lend a spark
To castaway distracting gloom.
We vote our heartfelt thanks to him,
Although we do it silently,
For putting through this gathering
On his responsibility.
His name this day we now revere
As he sits there before our eyes
And thus accord a wish sincere,
We rise and swell it to the skies.
CLARENCE I. WILSON
Council Grove, Kansas
Tuesday morning the postman surprised HP Faris by bringing him a dozen handsome roses from Kansas City, with the card "Herman P. Faris and Family, from the relatives leading on the 8:45 Frisco. With much love" for which the family returns heartiest thanks.
A resolution of thanks was voted to be extended the Clinton Chamber Commerce, who had intended to give the visitors an automobile ride over the city. 25 cars had been promised, but the ride was prevented by the severe thunderstorm all Saturday afternoon.
They also voted banks to Daniel both Belleau Potter, of Jefferson, Iowa, who arrived early and did everything possible for the comfort of the other members of the family, being the host's most able assistant in directing the reunion.
A vote of thanks was also extended the Daughters of the American Revolution for the invitation to the ladies to attend the Missouri Date program and reception at the home of Ms. Lawrence Crotty Monday afternoon.

FELLHAUER, J. J. Retires From Mail Service
Aug 1935 - Clinton Daily Democrat, Clinton, Henry County, Missouri
J. J. Fellhauer, Blairstown, Had Served Over 20 Years As Rural Mail Carrier J. J. Fellhauer, of Blairstown, was retired from service as rural mail carrier on Route 1 from Blairstown Wednesday, July 31, after serving 20 years and nine months in the government's employ. He leaves a fine record behind and during these years he has had many an exciting experience, some of which he tells about in the story following: I was appointed postmaster of LaDue April 17, 1903, and resigned April 1, 1907, after serving 3 years 11 months and 13 days. I was then appointed rural carrier for route 23, later known as route 2, Blairstown, October 1, 1918, served the route 14 years and six months, Was transferred to Route 1, April 1, 1933, serving that route 2 years and four months. My total service in the postal department of the government was 20 years and 9 months. I started carrying mail with a buggy and two horses. I remember distinctly when the roads were almost impassable. I had to first drive close to the fence on one side of the road and then the other side. The middle of the roads was impassable, would mire the team down. They went from bad to worse so I put a saddle on one of the horses and tried carrying horseback. It was hard work trying to carry mail on a horse, the boxes were too low and in trying to get the mail in the box the saddle girth would loosen and let the saddle slip. Consequently the horse got to bucking like a bronco, so pretty soon I landed over in the wire fence. When I got up my clothes were nearly torn off and the, horse was going down the road in a gallop, so I came in on foot, carrying the mail sack. That was my last trip horseback. On another occasion in going over a wooden bridge or culvert (there were plenty of that kind in Johnson county, where most of the route was located) my horses both stepped on a bad piece of timber at the same time and both fell through the culvert at the same time. I jumped out of the buggy, unhitched the horses as quickly as I could as they were, struggling fiercely. I pried them out with a piece of the broken timber, and rolled them, one at a time, off the end of the bridge without any help. One of the horses was so badly skinned up I had to hire a neighbor horse for 4 or 5 weeks. On another occasion my horses got, scared and ran off. I finally got them stopped by running them into a woven wire fence. They were going so fast that one of the horses got her foot caught in the fence which threw them on their backs into the ditch.. When released they got up and ran down the road and stopped. But the harness was literally torn to pieces and I had to borrow a set from a farmer to get back to the office. The last few years the roads have improved so that the rural carriers have about done away with the horse drawn vehicles. I have a special built car with extra transmission (power) so I can go anywhere a team can go. Same was thoroughly demonstrated this, spring when the roads were worse than they have been for three or four years, with the coming of more good roads every year. The post office department is consolidating more routes, making them longer, using less carriers. For instance, when I started at Blairstown in 1918, there were 3 routes; now beginning August 1st, one route of 61 miles is established. I tried to meet every requirement of the postal rules and regulations and did my duty as I understood it and have no regrets or apologies to make. I leave the service with a clear and unclouded record. - J. J. Fellhauer. - John J. Fellhauer was born July 17, 1870, near Old Ripley, Bond county, Ill. Henry county has been his home for 62 years. He was married to Delilah Hopkins at Montrose, February 26, 1905, and they have three daughters: Mrs. M. D. Walker, Kansas City; Mrs. Rolla Morrison, Holden; Miss Willa Mae, at home. The first ten months he carried the mail he used a two-horse buggy altogether and continued to use the horses when it rained after that for some time, as the roads would not permit driving a car. However in good weather he used a car all the time after the first ten months. The route was, 25, miles long which he says, at times seemed like it was longer. The roads were very bad at first, but the last few years have seen continued improvements until he believes they are 50% better. People on farms were anxious for the rural mall service, especially in bad, stormy weather when they were kept indoors. Most of them were grateful for the service and some would have liked to have mail twice a day, although some thought the carriers did not earn their money. The deepest snow during the time he carried mail was in January and February, 1919, and the worst flood conditions were in 1927 and 1935. The only times he has failed to make his route was once or twice he started and became snow-bound. In discussing the conditions of the times, Mr. Fellhauer said he believed people as a whole had seen as hard financial conditions the past few years as during any time since he worked for Uncle Sam, but for the rural carriers he considered the years during the World War the hardest as their salaries were less at the same time feed, gasoline, tires, etc., cost more.
Aug 1923 - Clinton Eye, Clinton, Henry County, Missouri
A few days ago Tom Parks, J. W. Jennings and son, Thornton, Ab Dunning and Ray Mills meandered down to the town that once was named Cobb, on the banks of the Sac river, ten miles west of Collins, where they fished to their hearts content for several days, that is part of them fished. It is rumored that Harry Carr is about the "Fishingest Fisherman" that ever was. He never stopped to sleep and his meals were served to him while in the water. He fished 24 hours a day. Now Ab Dunning is an industrious fisherman, but could not come up to Harry in hours per day, but was a capable assistant. Ed Lingle was camp chief, Willis Bailey made French toast, while Ray Mills made continual trouble for the cooks as he ate much and often, with an appetite always appreciative of their culinary skill. Thornton Jennings, in the capacity of water carrier, located a spring which furnished water clear as a crystal and as cold as if it came from the Rocky mountains. J. W. Jennings was the camp superintendent and saw that the lights were out at the proper time of night and looked after other such important matters. As to fish, about 25 were landed of various sizes. They report only two mosquitoes.
