Clinton MO - Mary Emmaline Dunning was born near Wylona, Trig county, Kentucky, December 5, 1842 and entered into her rest September 29, 1922, aged 79 years, 9 months and 14 days. Her parents were Harry and Nancy Dunning. The Dunning family came to Missouri in 1848, coming through in covered wagons, her mother driving a team of horses and her father a team of oxen. It was always a great pleasure to all her nieces and nephews and her three grandchildren to listen to the stories of their experiences along their journey to Missouri. There were five girls with their parents, Aunt Mary being only 6 years old. The others have all preceded her to their heavenly home. They settled on the old Dunning homestead, northwest of Deepwater, where lives the rest of her father's family - her only brother, William Dunning and her maiden sister, Miss Nancy Jane Dunning. In August, 1866, the subject of this sketch was united in marriage with Nicholas W. Boles, who has been dead since September 27, 1876. To this union were born two children - Linda and Lee Boles. Both have preceded her to their heavenly home. Lina left her husband and three little children - George, Mamah and Archie, whom Aunt Mary, their grandmother took as her very own and mothered them and raised them all to be young men and women, and with her brother and sister, these three grandchildren and and one great granddaughter, whom she loved so much, are left to mourn her departure. She had lived on the Boles homestead, just north of Deepwater, near the railroad, for the past 56 years, 46 years of this time she had lived a widow. She was a true friend, always upright and honest, and her devotions to her loved ones would make a bright chapter in any life. While she has gone from the scene, the conflicts, the sorrows and the pleasures of life, she will still live on in the hearts of her loved ones and of those who knew her best. She was a member of the Deepwater Baptist church, uniting there under the pastorate of Brother J. F. Sherman, 14 years ago. We are all glad Aunt Mate, as we always called her, did not have to linger and suffer as many have to do at her age, but that the end came sudden, as she had said many times she wanted to go that way when her time come to go. Yet we know she suffered. It was not long, as on Friday morning she was going about her work as usual and that afternoon she was taken ill and all was done for her that could be done by her grandchildren and Dr. Russell. She passed away at 4:30, being only sick about three hours. Her funeral was conducted at her late home by Brother J. M. Ramsey at 1:30 Sunday afternoon and her body was tenderly laid to rest beside her husband in the Dunning cemetery, near the home of her childhood days. - Her niece, Mrs. Lottie Braun.

Clinton MO, Nov 1940 - Miss Julia Bolton, who had lived all her kind and gentle life in Clinton, died at her home on East Jefferson Street at 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, November 20, following a grave illness of several months. The month of June she spent at the Earl Chittenden home in Webster Groves, where anxious relatives and expert medical authority diagnosed her trouble. In July she returned to Clinton, bravely and with no word of complaint, to face what gave indication of a long illness. Gradually her strength lessened and friends, kindly neighbors and relatives realized that her life's thread had spun too tin to keep her long among them. Julia Bolton, oldest daughter of the late Theodore J. and Ida Garth Bolton, was born and reared in Clinton, where she had always lived. She was a graduate of the Clinton public schools, and many of her girlhood friends had remained close to her throughout the years, for she was a person of warm attachments and great constancy. Some of the happiest experiences of her young womanhood were during months in Jefferson City, visiting or at the capitol holding various clerkships. Miss Bolton was the first librarian of the Henry County library, for three years materially assisting in its growth and organization. She was an enthusiastic and regular member of the Mary de la Vergne Reading Club, as her mother had been before her; and served many years as the corresponding secretary; she was also a member of the Presbyterian Daughters and at one time, their president; and the interested secretary of the Cemetery Association many years. she had been reared in the Presbyterian Church where her membership gave her strength and satisfaction and guided her life of patience and love; tolerance for all; devotion to her family for whom she was long the homemaker; and kindness to the children of her acquaintance. She was an expert cook and a clever needlewoman, enjoying to the utmost her comfortable home, where, surrounded by heirlooms and many antiques that linked her closely with the past, she lived, without reproach for anyone and generosity for all. Funeral services were conducted at the Presbyterian church Friday afternoon. Wilkinson Funeral service was in charge. Attending the services from out-of-town were Mrs. Barclay Green and son, Robert, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Kearns, and Mrs. Charles W.

Clinton MO, Nov 1925 - Theo Bolton died at Windsor about 8:15 last Friday night, in the Wall Drug Store. He was stricken about 4:15 on the street, when talking to a friend and taken into the drug store for treatment. He gained partial consciousness twice after the stroke and spoke to those about him. It is thought it was apoplexy. He had been unusually well and happy all day, greeting old friends and visiting at Calhoun and Windsor. On pretty days he often accompanied his friend, C. W. Cordray, traveling salesman for Swift & Co., when he went to Calhoun, as he enjoyed renewing old acquaintances there. Friday was such a pretty day that he called C. W. and asked if it would suit him to go. He was given an affirmative answer, so went. Mr. Cordray said he had never seen his aged friend so happy. All the way on the ride he joked and talked of the beauty of the November day, how good it felt to be out of doors and how glad he was so well. He was grateful for every blessing. His friend, Jim Martin, is in the barber business at Calhoun, so while there he got his hair cut and shaved. Then he told Mr. Cordray he believed he would go on with him to Windsor, which he did, visiting all his friends. His death came as a shock to both friends and relatives. But it seems fine that he died doing the things he enjoyed most. He was born 78 years ago in Cole county, Mo., near Jefferson City. His father was a physician, and later moved into Jefferson City, where he was educated, later going to Westminister college at Fulton and Washington University. Along about 1870, he came to Clinton, where he accepted a position with W. S. Stone, a druggist. He had been either working in a drug store, or running one of his own ever since. He had been in partnership with A. L. Armstrong, in the drug business on the north side of the square for the past four years. In 1877, he was also in partnership with Mr. Armstrong, the relationship continuing about four years from that time. For years he ran a store by himself on the east side of the squeare where the Dyart store now is. Then he spent a number of years in the drug business at Calhoun. He was a staunch Democrat, and took a keen interest in politics, local, state and national. He served this county as representative in the state legislature a number of years ago. In his business, both public and private, he was a success and left behind a clean record. Because of his magnetism of personality and worth as a man, he drew about him a great circle of friends. He loved all nature especially flowers and some flower usually adorned the lapel of his coat as he went about his business and friends. He was also a great lover of music. A few years after coming to Clinton he married Miss Ida Garth. To this union three children were given. The daughters are left to comfort their mother. Miss Julia, at home, and Miss Sarah Ermine, who teaches at Neodesha, Kans. He also leaves two sisters - Mesdames Clark and Allbrittan, both of Jefferson City. Deceased was a member of the Presbyterian church and the Masonic lodge. Funeral services were conducted at the church Monday morning. Burial in Englewood.

In 1957 her parents bought the Lewis Grocery. At age 14 she became the Lewis Grocery bookkeeper. Her mother was frequently Ill and Doris had to be in charge of the home and the family. She carried heavy responsibilities around the house and the grocery store. Doris loved meeting people and record keeping which became her profession. Doris graduated from Calhoun High School in 1961 and was married in 1962 and moved to Sedalia. Doris was then blessed with a son, Larry Keith Chastain. While living in Sedalia, Doris Joined the Sedalia Baptist Church. In 1964 Doris and Larry Keith moved to Warrensburg and also moved their church membership to the Harmony Baptist Church In Warrensburg: As a single mother Doris and Larry Keith were inseparable. In 1972 Doris met and married Jerry Bonner, who she lovingly called "Her Little Jer." They became a family along with Jerry's son Wayne. In 1984 Larry Keith died in an accident at age 21 while working in Kansas City. It was almost more than Doris could bear. Her health started to become frail. In 1985 Doris found another love, "Mustang Cars." Soon they had a business buying and restoring classic Mustangs. The only problem was that she could never sell them after their restoration. They have 30 show cars, and she will forever be known by many people as the "Mustang Lady." Besides Doris' love of Mustangs she also had a great love for animals, and often took in strays, wild or tame. Doris especially loved raccoons and had a wide collection of raccoon pictures and ceramics. Doris' tender heart could never turn her back on a helpless animal or on a friend or loved one in need of help. Doris' health continued to fail and was diagnosed with Crones disease in 1990.

BOONE, Banton G. Sr.

Englewood Cemetery BA-BO, Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Feb 1900 - Gen. B. G. Boone died at 4:20 p.m. Sunday, February 12th, after an illness of less than thirty hours. His death was a severe shock to the community, both to those who knew of his illness and especially to those who learned of his death before learning of his sickness. To the casual observer he seemed in as good or better health this winter than usual, but his more intimate friends noticed that he was losing strength. He was always cheerful and spoke encouragingly of his condition. An intimate friend said last Sunday that Gen. Boone had suffered more the past few years and said less about it than any man in the county. He was not greatly advanced in years, not yet having attained his sixty-second year. Gen. Boone, in addition to his practice of law, has had a love, taste and unusual ability in literary work. His wide acquaintance with men and events, his wonderful and unerring memory, his rare ability in the use of the choicest language to clothe his description of men and the part they have taken in the political, business, social and progressive history of the great commonwealth of Missouri, together with his love for personal and historic reminiscences, has made his articles on the "Governors of Mo." and other sketches unusually attractive and widely copied and complimented by the leading newspapers of the State. His last work of this kind was a sketch of one of his former friends and one of his earliest acquaintances in Henry county, Hon. Robert Allen, who was our first sheriff, serving four terms and was elected to the legislature in 1856, just 18 years before Gen. Boone was elected to represent Henry county. He had taken the article to one of the paper offices just before 12 o'clock Saturday. Leaving there for home, he fell in company with Dr. S. A. Milton, at the State Bank corner and spoke to him of the article just written, as Mr. Allen was Mrs. Milton's grandfather. He seemed as well as usual. Dr. Milton intending going south on Main street, stopped R. H. Piper, saying to wait a moment and he would have company. Mr. Piper and Mr. Boone then started to their homes, just across the street from each other, on 5th and Jefferson. At the end of the third block he took a strong hold of Mr. Piper's arm. Mr. Piper asking if he was sick, he said "yes," and a few feet farther, said: "Get me home quick, Bob." Before the end of the next block was reached he began sinking to the sidewalk. Mr. Piper assisting him down easily. Looking down the street some distance he saw a man coming in a wagon. Mr. Piper hailed him and he came and assisted in taking Mr. Boone home. Drs. Britts and Haire were called in and found an alarming heart condition. Gen. Boone remained dazed for a short time after being taken home, not remembering anything that transpired after he left the State Bank corner. Dr. J. F. Robinson, of Nevada, a special friend, was called in consultation Sunday morning. It was clearly evident that only a few hours at most remained of the General's earthly life. Though he seemed to suffer until afternoon, he gradually fell into a profound and peaceful sleep, from which he has awakened in a higher and brighter world. Banton G. Boone was born in Calloway county, October 23, 1838. His parents were Kentuckians. He came to Clinton in 1856, then a young man of 18 years of age, having for a few years previous been in a printing office at Troy, Mo. He was soon appointed and held the position of deputy circuit clerk for four years, studying law during the time, being admitted to the bar in 1860, by the late Foster P. Wright, then circuit judge. Gen. Boone was a lifelong Democrat. He was elected to the legislature in 1874 defeating by a large majority, Jonathan Browning, the liberal Republican candidate. He was honored by being elected speaker of the house thus conferring an honor on Henry county. In 1880 he was defeated for attorney-general by only one-third of a vote, defeating in 1884, for the same office, D. H. McIntyre. In this office he served the State with distinguished ability both before the supreme court of the U.S. and in various interest of the State of Missouri. Among the memorial meetings of national interest, that he was honored by appointment of governors to represent the state, were: In 1887 the Centennial in Philadelphia, of the adoption of the Federal constitution; in 1889, to New York City, for the centennial of the inauguration of George Washington. Perhaps no man in Missouri, some years ago, except Senator Cockrell, had a more perfect memory of names and faces than General Boone had. At State conventions he knew nearly every man present and could introduce men from every section of the State, naming in what way everyone had served the State or his country. General Boone was well-known in Masonic circles, a Knight Templar and had been honored by being elected eminent commander of the Boanerges Commandery of Clinton. As a neighbor, Gen. Boone was loved by all. A man of the kindest impulses. As a social companion he was sought out, being brilliant and entertaining in conversation. In most public gatherings he was selected to preside, which he did to the pleasure and satisfaction of everyone. He was a natural presiding officer and a fine parliamentarian. General Boone was united in marriage June 4th, 1874, to Miss Irene C. Rogers, a daughter of Dr. John A. Rogers, a pioneer of Clinton, a physician of unusual ability, greatly loved and honored by those who knew him. Only a daughter and son were born to them - Miss Bessie and B. G. Boone, Jr. Young Mr. Boone has been a law student in his father's office and under his careful training, passed an examination at the January term of the circuit court that was highly pleasing to the father and highly complimentary to the son, and was admitted to the bar by Judge Graves. He at once became his father's partner, but death has brought this to an untimely end. The widowed mother, the son and daughter have the tenderest sympathy of the entire community in the loss of the kind and loving husband and indulgent father. The funeral services were held at the Cumberland Presbyterian church, of which he was a member. There were many floral offerings, both from friends and the Masonic order. These, together with the decorations of the church and music, expressed the tenderest love for the one departed and the warmest sympathy for those so deeply bereaved.

Clinton MO - John Bowen, Henry County's largest deep mine coal operator, died at Windsor at 11 p.m. Friday, December 7th. He had been in ill health for some time and ten days before his death was stricken with erysipelas which developed into pneumonia which was fatal. Had Mr. Bowen lived until December 13, he would have been 76 years old, as he was born in Durham County, England, December 13, 1858. Mr. Bowen was the only child of his parents who was born in England. He came from a fine English father, who was always held in high regard by the miners employed by him, as was his son, John, whom they knew familiarly as Jack Bowen. After the death of his parents, he and his sons became the Bowen Coal Company, which had been organized by his father years before. New fields were developed in and around Windsor, especially at the point near Windsor that was later named for the mines and is now called Bowen. Mr. Bowen was devoted to his wife and children, and had furthered the interests of the community in which he lived, being one of the representative citizens of Windsor. He and the late Elmer Oechsli organized and financed the First National Bank of Windsor. At the time of his residence in Lewis, Mr. Bowen belonged to the Episcopal church in Clinton, the church of his parents. He was jovial and treated rich and poor alike, and was ever ready to help. Honest and upright, he was respected by fellow citizens as well as his employees. Mr. Bowen was married to Miss Mary Ann Thompson January 25, 1881. She passed into eternity January 5, 1916. His son Richard, is also dead. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Robert Frazer, who has been the homemaker for her father since the death of her mother; the son John is also at home, and the other two, Frank and Ralph, reside in Windsor. There are also two grandchildren, two brothers, W. S Bowen of Windsor and T. R. Bowen of Columbia, and a sister Mrs. Elizabeth Peckenpaugh of Clinton.

Funeral services were held at the home in Windsor on Monday. Burial was in the Windsor Cemetery.

bur:
Englewood Cemetery BA-BO, Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Richard Bowen died at his home at 3406 Coleman Road in Kansas City, Tuesday night, June 11th, at 9 o'clock. He had been very ill for a few weeks previous to his death and in failing health for more than a year. He had been blind for ten years, but despite bodily afflictions had been keenly interested in everything including the political situation both of state and nation last fall. Up until a few weeks before his death he gave wise counsel to his sons in financial affairs. He had many friends in Clinton and enjoyed his visit here last summer renewing old acquaintances. He said he thought it would be his farewell trip. He was born at Sunderland, Durham County, England, May 17, 1839, being 90 years old last month. He was united in marriage to Elizabeth Thompson in 1858. Durham County, England, has many coal mines and young Richard worked early and late for his bride in the mines of that locality that were three miles back under the sea. A baby son, Jack, came the next year and the young father decided that he would seek his fortune westwards. In 1863 he followed the advice of a friend and took a sailing vessel to America. They were tossed about on the sea for seven long weeks, many days it seemed that they went farther backwards than forwards, but finally landed and he went to Steubenville, Ohio, to work in the mines. As soon as he earned enough he sent for his young wife and son. They liked their new home and never cared to return to England. He later spent a year in Maryland, then went to West Virginia, returning to Maryland for awhile, just previous to moving to Henry county in 1876. He came here to take charge of Bancroft & Co's mines, who first worked a 5 foot vein of coal 25 feet deep on what was known as the Ira Hayes farm. As soon as he saved enough he bought the Stiner farm after consulting with his eldest son, Jack, who was then 17. They took the chance that this fine vein of coal went in that direction and were good guessers. This was the first royalty he ever got. He had become manager of the Osage Coal Co., in the meantime, and they worked out this vein. He and h is son Jack, with Will and Frank Bronaugh, formed the Tebo Coal Co. in 1882 and started into business as coal operators. They made a splendid success from the start being held in the highest respect by their men. They worked out the first vein from 1883 until 1888, but prospected and found sufficient coal to keep the mines open in the vicinity of Lewis until 1901. Richard Bowen retired form the active operating about 1892 when he moved to Clinton and built the attractive home on South Main and Ohio Streets, which has been occupied by his daughter Mrs. Elizabeth Peckenpaugh for a number of years. Coal was discovered on the Johnson and Henry county line near Windsor and the Bowen Coal Co. was formed in 1901, and operations started at the place that later became known as Bowen. He was a stock holder in this company and maintained his interest in coal mining and operation until the last. TThere were few deep mines when he came to Henry county, and he brought the latest ideas from England and the eastern part of the United States into the mines at Lewis Station. His beloved wife mad her husband's interest hers. In the early days she drove a horse and buggy to the Clinton bank to deposit the money. She also carried the pay roll out, most of the time more than a thousand dollars in a tin bucket. They were happy and contented in their home life, constantly doing for each other. He worked for many years from 12 to 18 hours a day. They were raised in the Episcopal Church of England and Mr. Bowen was Senior Warden in the Clinton Episcopal church for many years. He contributed liberally to all of the activities and looked after each of the members with brotherly love. He had the kindest heart and was generous to those inneed. He had a good word for all, but did not hesitate to give a needed rebuke, speaking his convictions fearlessly on all occasions if needed to help an issue. An end was brought to 55 years of devoted marriage companionship, when his wife departed this life February 7, 1913. The next year he became seriously ill and was in the hospital for an extended time where he met Mrs. May Anderson, a trained nurse, whom he later married. She gave him devoted care and his married life the second time was also a happy one. She was so seriously ill that she was unable to come to the funeral. His children visited him often, which he thoroly enjoyed and there never was a more beautiful devotion than the one that existed between him and his only daughter, Mrs. Peckenpaugh. He also leaves three sons, Jack and Will Bowen of Windsor; Tom Bowen of Columbia; all being present for the funeral. There are eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Richard Bowen was one of the organizers of the Clinton National Bank in 1905 and had served as director and the vice president since its organization. He was always a leader of men, with a rugged honesty and his word was a good as his bond. His body was brought to Clinton Wednesday and taken to the home of his daughter on South Main Street for the funeral and his body was laid in Englewood Thursday afternoon.

bur:
Bear Creek Cemetery, Bear Creek Twp, Henry Co, MO
"Uncle Bill" as he was locally known, fell asleep at 2:20 a.m. January 7th. This is not spoken figuratively as the end came painlessly; only a sigh or two and he was gone. The day before he had worked hard for one nearly three score and ten and during the evening had complained some of a pain in his side. Though he had been a partial invalid for years, a merciful Providence relieved him of all suffering in the end. No one except his devoted wife was with him at the time. William Miles Boyd was born in Moultrie county, Illinois, May 20th, 1855, his age being 68 years, 7 months and 17 days. May 15th, 1880, he married Miss Celina Jane Hatch of Colmar, Illinois. He was the last of five brothers and two sisters. He leaves a wife a number of nephews and nieces and other relatives and friends whose memory for him will be forever green. Mr. Boyd moved with his parents from Illinois to Missouri shortly after the Civil war and they settled a few miles southeast of Montrose. In this section and in the LaDue vicinity he grew to manhood. Besides living a few years in Colmar, Illinois, his entire life was spent in southwest Henry county. Here he saw the country change from virgin timber and prairie to the well developed region it is today. His part was that of the average pioneer so valuable to a country -- the clearing of the timber land, the breaking of the tough prairie sod, the laying out of roads, the bridging of streams and the erection of the first schools and churches. He had been a member of the Methodist church for over 40 years, attended a lodge or two and until ill health prevented, took an active part in public affairs. He died childless. To him though over a third of a century ago was entrusted the penniless widow and orphans of a brother dying in early manhood. That promise that he would care for them, given in the hour of death, was never forgotten, though it meant many an additional day of work and worry. To the day of his death, his kindly influence was felt and heeded by those whom he so tenderly cared for in their infancy. He was laid to rest in the Bear Creek cemetery where sleep so many individuals who have played the game so nobly and well and have passed on.
