Clinton MO - Mrs. Jacob Doll died at 4:20 a.m. Tuesday, September 5, 1939, at her home, about half a mile east of Lucas. She had been in failing health since last January from a malignant disease, and the past several weeks was bedfast. She was constantly and tenderly cared for by her husband and their daughter at home, Lula Doll, who, as the beloved mother became weaker, was assisted by the other children. All except one, Mrs. Helen Henny, who is ill, were at Mrs. Doll's bedside Sunday and remained until the end.

Besides her devoted companion of past 50 years, Mrs. Doll is also survived by one brother, Orville, of Aromas, Calif.

Mrs. Doll was the finest of quilters, crocheted and pieced. many them not only for herself and family, but for others who delighted in her excellent work. She loved flowers, planting many each summer and keeping potted plants through the winter. She enjoyed neighborhood gatherings and visits from her relatives and friends, all of whom found her ready to help in time of need, not only in the Lucas neighborhood where they lived many years, but also in Urich, where they resided a few years and from where they moved about five years ago to their present home.

Clinton MO - Mrs. Doll, beloved resident of western Henry County, died at her home 1 1/2 miles southwest of Lucas at 8:30 p.m. July 9, 1938, following an extended illness from dropsy. She had been seriously ill several months, but this did not daunt her ever ready smile, or cheerful disposition, contact with which could always drive away the clouds of life. She did not complain throughout the months of indisposition, preceding her illness, and her passing was peaceful. Her companion of many years was with her at the end which came suddenly, as other members of the family had gone to Urich Saturday evening. The two, left alone, talked together, then she said, "I believe it is my bedtime," and lay back, reminding him to give her some medicine before he retired. Hearing a little noise, he went to her, but her spirit had returned to its Maker. Clara Belle Mock, daughter of Frederick and Mary Henny Mock, was born June 3, 1882, in the White Oak neighborhood where, and in nearby communities, she spent her life. She was united in marriage to John E. Doll, April 2, 1906, and to this union were born four stalwart sons, who are left to comfort their father, Ralph, Max and Elton of the home and Edward, living near the home. There are three grandchildren, Donna Loy, Delbert Lee and Dixie Lou Doll. She is also survived by a brother Jess P. Mock, west of White Oak church; half-sisters, Mrs. Lora Scranton, Urich; Mrs. Della Wilson, near Urich; Mrs. Florence O'Bahnnon of Oklahoma, Mrs. Marie Scranton, California; half-brothers, Herman, Omer, Oscar and Albert Little, all of Texas. She professed faith in Christ at an early age and hers was a life of sacrificial service to others. She was a faithful worker on the Lucas Methodist Church, in which faith their children were reared. She did everything possible to make their home a pleasant dwelling and there, the father and sons found a quick, sympathetic heart and every encouragement. There was no envy in her heart for earthly achievement; she was content to supply her family's needs; to have them about here; and to be true to her exemplary conception of Christianity. Her home stood open to those who cared to enter, and the warm greeting extended was proof of a beautiful sincerity. Mrs. Doll was industrious, working with and for her boys who shared the household tasks that the mother's burdens might be lighter. They developed one of the largest poultry flocks in that part of the county. She encouraged her boys in their 4-H club work as well as their participation in other worthwhile community enterprises, in which she led the way. Mrs. Doll, or Clara, as she was affectionately called, cooperated to the fullest, appreciation of which was expressed in the large assembly gathered to pay their last respects and in the profuse floral offerings. Funeral services were conducted at the Lucas church Monday. Pall bearers were cousins, Elmer and Harley Henny, Ben and Omer Kedigh, Will and Walter Goodman. Flower girls were nieces, Allie Marie Scranton, Maxine Doll, Evelyn and Alberta Wilson.

Someone had spelled her name with an "i" and they thought they were getting a man patient and so things had to be changed before she got her room.

Clinton MO, Dec 1938 - George Dorman died at 11:15 Monday, December 12, in the same house where life began for him almost 82 years ago, corner of Franklin and Water streets. He had been in failing health for more than a year, and late Sunday afternoon started up the stairs, when his strength must have failed and he fell into the back hall, severely injuring himself. Miss Emma Dorman and Oscar, unable to lift him, called L. B. Driggers from across the street, John Simmons came with him and together they got Mr. Dorman to bed but his suffering was intense and the next day his devoted sister and brother realized death hovered near, the third visitation to their immediate family in less than a year. George Harris Dorman was the middle son of Jerubial Gideon and Udolpha Miller Dorman, influential pioneer citizens of Clinton whose family is interlinked with all the early history of the town and county. He was born January 28, 1857, at the Dorman home, oldest residence of Clinton, and as a lad attended the local schools and on the Sabbath, Sunday school in the morning at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and in the afternoon at the Baptist church. He was a friend-maker from his youth, a good mixer, courageous and brave. One Sunday, coming home without his coat and vest, he told his father that he had given them to a boy who needed them much more than he did. As a young man his first business venture was a general mercantile store in Montrose where he made a host of friends, many of whom still remain. He was a rover by nature, however, and loved travel. In Colorado and the northwest United States he was an auctioneer some years, associated with Senator Ed Levitt and Charlie Graff. He then formed a surveying company and surveyed and established the towns of La Palmas and Tucson, Arizona. He next went to Central America where various interest engaged him, then traveled in the eastern states, for a time being in Plymouth, Conn., with relatives. Late years found him again in Clinton, where life moved to its close. He was a man of vigorous constitution and the brightness of his mind never dimmed. At the annual December banquet of the woodman Lodge last Wednesday he was present and made an address. He had dropped membership in other lodges years before. Surviving Mr. Dorman are a sister, Miss Emma, and brothers, Oscar of the home, W. H. Dorman of North Main Street, Clinton; sister, Mrs. L. H. Phillips, and two nieces, Miss Udolpha Phillips and Mrs. J. Mullaly, all of St. Louis.

Clinton MO, Jan 1935 - George W. Dorman, descendant of one of Henry County's oldest families, died at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, January 10, at the ancestral Hancock-Dorman home a mile northwest of Clinton. George Washington Dorman, son of Rebecka Hancock and Matthew Dorman, was born January 20, 1859, in Henry county, where the greater part of his life was spent. The historical old home where he lived was built by George Washington Hancock in 1858, and during his life it was renowned for its lavish hospitality. Mr. Hancock deeded to the Christian Church the lot on which that first house of worship was built at a cost of $6,000. Later this lot became the property of the Clinton high school and the auditorium-gymnasium now stands there. Geo. W. Dorman and his brother, John, lived together in the old home at the death of the former. The family was always noted for its generosity, gladly sharing with others that the world might be happy. George Dorman attended Clinton Academy and was a graduate of the University of Missouri. His education continued by the constant perusal of good books which the entire family studied constantly. Mr. Dorman was a prolific reader and could talk learnedly upon almost any topic suggested. After the death of the husband of Mr. Dorman's sister, Mrs. Virginia Dorman Golden, the family shared the home with her and her only child, now Mrs. Belle Golden Blanchard, of Humansville. This daughter was given every advantage of culture and refinement that comes from constant association with men of wisdom and the reading of books which induced thought. In writing the obituary, one old timer recalled the mad stone which belonged to the Dorman family which was supposed to prevent the development of rabies when applied to the wound made by the bite of a mad or rabid animal. The stone was secured from an old gold prospector whom Matthew Dorman met while taking treatments for rheumatism at Hot Springs. The prospector had traded for the stone with the Indians and according to Indian legend, the stone was taken from the stomach of a white deer. It was oval in shape and porous. A physician at New Orleans gave Mr. Dorman $500 for half of the stone after it was sent to new Orleans to prevent rabies in one of the members of a prominent family. Mr. Dorman brought his half home and people from miles around were rushed to the Dorman home for the use of the mad stone when bitten by an infected animal. A fee was charged those who were able to pay, but all were treated whether they could pay or not. Often months would pass and no one would come, then a mad dog would get loose in the community and dozens of people would flock to the stone. As far as can be determined by those who knew of the mad stone, no one ever suffered from hydrophobia after the application of the stone. If memory is correct, if the top of the wound was healed, an abrasion was made so blood would come on or near the wound. The stone was then applied to the wound and remained until soaked full of the virus, when it dropped away. The stone was then put in fresh milk and as the poison soaked out, the milk became green. The stone was repeatedly soaked until the milk remained white, then all the poison was gone. Once a man brought his boy to the Dorman home for use of the mad stone. He was well-to-do and paid for the treatment, but with him he brought a mother and nine children, a poor family all victims of a rabid dog. The group of ten remained at the Dorman home for two weeks for the healing application of the stone, and they were given the same kindness and hospitality the wealthy man and his son were given. For many years George Dorman lived on a farm near Garland, delighting in the solitude that he might meditate upon the written words of the great masters. He was reticent, finding more happiness with his books than in associating with people. Surviving Mr. Dorman are a brother and a sister, John B. Dorman of Clinton, and Mrs. Chas. Davis of near Windsor, the last of 12 children. There is also his niece Mrs. Belle Blanchard of Humansville, and the five children of Mrs. Davis and a great niece, Mrs. Everett E. Keith of Columbia, daughter of Mrs. Blanchard. The funeral was held at the Wilkinson Funeral home at 2 p.m. Friday with Rev. Olsen in charge. Burial was in Englewood.

Clinton MO, Feb 12 1910 - Judge Jerubbal Gideon Dorman died February 4, 1910 in his 92nd year. He was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, July 17, 1818 and with his father, the Rev. Mathew Dorman, a devout and noted Baptist preacher, moved to Gallatin County, Kentucky where he grew to manhood and at his death, was the last of nine brothers and sisters, all of a generous and noble character. His early manhood was spent in river traffic on the Green, Ohio and Mississippi rivers, with headquarters at Quincy, Illinois and his fortunes were varied. In 1849, he started to California by water but was wrecked off the coast of Central America and continued the trip overland through Mexico and returned by way of Cape Horn. He was of French, English and Scotch descent. Guezot's history speaks of Jean Dorman and his two brothers, who were chancellors of France under Chas. Fifth about 1363. In 1372, the college of Beauvois of deDorman was founded by three brothers of the name of Dorman - one being bishop of Beauvois, one archbishop of Angiers and the other chancellor of France. John deDorman, prince cardinal, died in 1373. Sir Wm. deDorman distinguished himself by advocating the cause of King John XI of France. Thus it will be seen that among his French ancestry are found the founders of the first institution of higher education in all France. In England and Scotland, the family were always active in state and church and in 1642 four of the Dorman brothers came to America, settling eventually in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Maryland. His grandfather, Mathew Dorman, with two brothers, John and Major, were in the Revolutionary War, while some of their New England relatives adhered to king George. On April 12, 1852, he married Mrs. Udolpha F. Eagle of Quincy, Ill. and in 1856 they moved to Clinton, where he established a general store, the first in Henry County, his goods being shipped to Boonville by boat and overland to Clinton and when the M.K.&T railroad was built, the first freight brought over that line was a car load of goods for his store. He was a member of the first school board ever organized in Henry County and in 1860, was elected county judge. In the early days of the civil war he was captain of the Home Guards and preserved the muster roll as a relic. In 1846, he was a delegate to the State Democratic Convention in St. Louis, was, was elected representative in 1872, when he advocated many measures on behalf of the people and drafted a road improvement bill which unanimously passed the House and Senate, and long remained the law of the state, unchanged. He helped to organize the First National Bank, now the citizens' Bank, served as president for a time and remained a stockholder until his death. He leaves six children - Charles D., William H., George H., O. M., Miss Emma Dorman and Mrs. Victoria D. Phillips of Girard, Kansas, and one stepson Edw. Eagle, all of whom were at his bedside when he passed away. In early life, he joined the Odd Fellows and for many years has enjoyed the unique distinction of being the oldest member in the state. The funeral was Sunday at his residence, with Rev. A. N. Lindsey in charge, and his brethren of the order bore him, with many beautiful floral emblems, to his final resting place in Englewood. Thus passed away a noted landmark of our time, a pioneer of whom it may truly be said that his life was gentle and the elements so mixed in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world: "This was a Man."

Clinton MO, Feb 27 1892 - Matthew Dorman was buried in Englewood last Sunday, after a funeral at the Christian Church. He was born Oct. 21, 1821 in Gallatin county, Ky. and moved to Missouri in the spring of 1841 and to Clinton in 1854 and was the youngest member of a large family of whom his brother, J. G. Dorman of this city, is now the only surviving member. He served in the Mexican war and was a soldier in Gen. Price's army. His health had been failing for two years and his death came after patient waiting and was not an unwelcome guest. He leaves four sons and three daughters, who homes have always been in Henry County. Few men have seen the changes or experienced so much of life in the short space of 70 years. So genial and generous was his nature that wherever his pathway led, he never ignored an opportunity to help a comrade or found himself without a friend.

Following graduation he traveled extensively, returning to Clinton later, where he assisted in the management of his father's mercantile store on the north side of the square, which at one time had been the only general mercantile store in Henry county. Later he directed his energies to the management of the family farms and property. Mr. Dorman was a good neighbor and friend, thrifty and shrewd in business acumen, regularly attended the Baptist Church. He was a good conversationalist, who at all times enjoyed visitors and visiting and often entertained distinguished guests in the historic family home at 302 West Franklin Street which is closely interlinked with much early Clinton history.

Clinton Eye, Apr 1889 - Death of Mrs. Dorman - Mrs. Rebecca J. Dorman was, in the midst of health, stricken down by apoplexy shortly at 2 o'clock Thursday, April 18. She had busied herself about the yard for sometime in her usual good spirits and had made no complaint and had returned to the house to attend to her usual duties. While there, her son Sterling went into the same room for a moment and they were talking together when she exclaimed: "Mercy! what a headache." He immediately turned to her, but only in time to see her clasp her hands to her forehead with words, "0h! my head," and sink down upon a chair. As she started to fall, he caught her but consciousness was gone. She was taken out into the fresh air, then placed upon a couch and cold water freely applied to her head and face. Medical aid was immediately summoned but Dr. Jennings pronounced her dead, from a rupture of one of the larger blood vessels in the brain. She was the only daughter of G. W. Hancock, Sr. who has for years been living with her at the old homestead, one mile northwest of Clinton. She was born near Owenton, in Owen county, Kentucky, on the 20th day of May, 1833. When 12, she joined the Christian Church and always had a pure and earnest life. She married a Matthew Dorman February 1st 1849 in her 16th year and was the mother of 12 children, seven now living. Her brother John B. Hancock, had that recently moved to Brownington. She has relatives in a dozen states, but most live in Kentucky, in and around Owenton and Lexington, and here in Henry County. Her sudden death has occasioned the deepest grief.

Clinton MO, Jul 1931 - Sterling P. Dorman died at his home a mile northwest of Clinton on the old Dorman farm formerly the Hancock place, at 9:05 Wednesday morning. He had been in failing health for several years, and on July 14th became acutely ill, and was brought to Clinton by his brother, George, for a slight operation. He gradually grew worse and passed into a state of coma Friday, and Wednesday morning gradually quit breathing. Sterling P. Dorman was born on the Dorman farm near Garland, February 22, 1861. His maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Hancock then lived on the place now known as the Dorman farm, where he died, and it was during the Civil war that they went to the farm near Garland, after their daughter, a young mother, and her small children, of whom Sterling was one, bringing them into the shelter of their loving home, as her husband, Matthew Dorman, was serving in the Confederate army at the time. It was a beautiful old homestead, built in the early fifties, with a chimney at one side of ante-bellum architecture. It still stands, having housed through these many years, the three generations, the Hancock's, Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Dorman, and their children. For many years, it has been the bachelor quarters of s. P. Dorman and his brother, George, who is now left alone. Sterling was intellectual and eager for knowledge, attending the Clinton schools, later the Lamkin Academy, from which he graduated, then the University of Missouri, getting his A.B. degree in 1887. He then attended the School of Law at the University, and took his LL. B degree a few years later. He was a brilliant student, and had the best knowledge of Missouri history and Missouri law of any man in the state. He served as clerk in the state legislature of Missouri for a number of terms, and some of the laws of Missouri are from the bills that he drew while there. He taught for several years in his youth. As a student, he was a member of the Athenean Literary Society, the only literary society that has continued since the founding of the University, and was active in debating. He was ever interested in his Alma Mater, and at times when the alumni of the county would give banquets or dinners to promote interest in that university, he was the first one to give his share, and to do all possible to persuade young people to enter there. With all his fund of knowledge, his wants were simple and Sterling remained gentle and kind, always willing to help a friend, generous with his fund of knowledge. His memory was marvelous, and he could entertain one for hours with stories of historical interest, poems, or whatever one might ask him about. Every newspaper and magazine of the day came to his home, and he was ever informed on the happenings of the day. Not only was he interested in reading but also in outdoor life. He applied his scientific study off horticulture in developing his orchard, and some of the largest peaches and pears of Henry county came from his place. He had also studied agriculture, and knew the best kind of corn for seed, where it could be procured, and would grow the best. For nearly fifteen years Sterling was employed as secretary in the office of John A. Gilbreath, attorney-at-law. Many will remember him trudging about the streets of Clinton, but the picture that will linger longest is the one he made sitting in that office, meticulously preparing his work, interested in every detail. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Lula Davis, of near Calhoun, two brothers - George, who lives on the home farm, and John Dorman of Des Moines, Iowa. All were at his bedside when death came. The funeral services will be conducted at the Sims Funeral Home Thursday afternoon, and the burial will be in Englewood.

She was respected and beloved by all; and with the tears of sorrow over her loss will be mingled pity for her aged consort left companionless, and sympathy for her children. Mrs. Dorman's health has been far from good for several months unfavorable symptoms manifesting themselves ever since a severe fall last winter. Some two weeks ago she conceived the idea of spending her 76th birthday with her daughter Mrs. L. H. Phillips in Girard, Kansas. The children deemed the risk a great one in her enfeebled physical condition but finally consented and she went to Girard, July 19th. The following Monday evening she was taken with a severe chill which caused alarm. Next morning her daughter, Emma, was called to her bedside and on Wednesday Charles and Oscar Dorman followed, leaving George to be with their father. She continued to sink, and after having her wish spending her birthday on Sunday with Mrs. Phillips, she fell into rest eternal the next morning. Mrs. Dorman was born in Ridgeville, Frederick county, Maryland, July 29, 1830. In 1852 at Quincy, Ills., she was married to Mr. Dorman, who had just then returned from California. To them were born six children. Judge and Mrs. Dorman came to Clinton in 1855, and made their home with us from that time. Hand in hand have they journeyed down life's pathway until the sad time of parting came. The sympathies and words of consolation that can be expressed to our aged friend are all too inadequate. But the parting will be a brief one. A merciful God who has spared them so long for each other will soon reunite them never again to be parted. The body will be brought to Clinton on the M.K.&T. flyer tonight. Notice of funeral will be given later.

DORWARD, Alexander

Dodge County WI, Mar 11 1892 - Death of an ex-soldier - Alexander Dorward died at his home near Neosho, Dodge Co., Monday morning, Feb. 29, 1892 aged 51 years.

Their union was blest with two daughters Flora and Lettie. Mr. Dorward was a soldier in the late rebellion and rendered distinguished service as a member of the 7th, Wis. Battery in the army of the Cumberland. He was a great favorite and was highly respected by his comrades in arms, as indeed, he was with all who knew him in the routine of civil life. It is thought that the disease which called him to a premature grave, was induced by hardships connected with his army life. His illness was of a long duration and of a very painful nature, yet he endured it all without a murmur, and was sustained by the buoyant hope that he would eventually recover until the final end was near. His funeral, largely attended, took place from the M.E. church at 10 o'clock in the forenoon Thursday of last week. The burial services were conducted by the Masonic fraternity, of which society deceased was an honored member. Burial services at the church. A beautiful floral wreath, presented by the Masons, and containing the emblems of their order adorned the casket. To the aged parents, the wife and children who weep in common the loss of a loved son, husband and father the heartfelt sympathy of a wide circle of friends is sincerely extended in their darkest night of sorrow. - NOTE: Sarah Luella (Wilson) Dorward, Flora (Dorward) Campbell, and Orlettie (Dorward) Schiller had moved to Henry County by 1895, and are buried in Montrose Cemetery, Deepwater Township.

Mr. Dowell was 85 years, 3 months and 17 days of age at his death, having spent the most of his life in Missouri. When a youth of 16 years of age, he moved with his parents from Kentucky, to Mercer County, Illinois, and there he grew to manhood.

Lawson, of Pasadena, California, and one brother, Abner Dowell, of Prescott, Washington, besides many nephews, nieces and a large number of friends. He was one of a family of ten children: five brothers, and four sisters, all of whom grew to be strong men and women, except the youngest, who died in infancy. He was a quiet, unassuming man, who was generous to a fault. Was always jolly, and had a kind word for every one he knew. He loved little children very much and he had lived to see little children grow to manhood, womanhood, to be fathers, mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers, having lived in this community since the fall of 1869. He loved to turn old mother earth and plant seeds, then watch them grow with great satisfaction. He enjoyed church services as long as he could hear. He was a charter member of the LaDue Christian Church, and loved to live under her shadow, and always loved her rulings. He, like the sturdy oak, had stood the heat of many summers, and the fury of many winters, but grew tired, and is now resting and we consign all to the Lord who doeth all things well, to be revealed in His own time. His wife preceded him to the better world August 22, 1917, and lived to see many friends pass on. Rev. A. N. Lindsey, of Clinton, Mo., delivered a beautiful sermon at the LaDue Christian Church June 20th, and the remains were tenderly laid to rest by the side of his wife in the LaDue cemetery at the close of the services.
