John William Galbraith was born in Pennsylvania, May 7, 1850, and came to Henry county when a young man. He was married to Mary Elva Padgett and they reared a family of ten, in Deepwater, where Mr. Galbraith was a coal miner.

His knowledge of the Bible was limitless and a preacher friend said Mr. Galbraith was the best interpreter of the Bible he know. Not only could he give the correct meaning of difficult passages, but he so incorporated the Bible and its Christian teachings into his every day living that his entire life was an exemplification of Christianity. He was a member of the Deepwater Presbyterian church.

Soon after the close of the civil war he went to Ohio, where he found employment. After some time he journeyed west to Illinois, where he bought land and farmed it. Here, in 1875, he was married to Elena Haeght. To them were born four children: Erma, John Wesley, Charles A. and Ella. In 1889 the family moved to Edmond, Okla., where he built a flour mill. He was engaged in this business until his health compelled him to retire. In 1899 he and his family came to Blairstown, Mo., where he spent his remaining years. He was a man who knew much sorrow for he outlived his brothers and sisters, his wife and all of his children except Charles, with whom he made his home after his wife's passing, three years ago. His sensitive nature made grief hard to bear but that inborn principle of devotion gave him a fortitude which inheritance and early training only can give and made rich a life already potent with native gentleness and sympathy. This honored man leaves to mourn his loss and to cherish his memory, his son, Charles, his daughter-in-law, five grandchildren, Mrs. Harry Morris, of Blue Springs, Mo., Mrs. Arthur Heerman, of Lincoln, Mo., Miss Lena Gallihugh, of Blairstown, William and Martha Gallihugh, of the home; two great-granddaughters, Erma Beth and Maud Ella Morris, of Blue Springs and many friends and neighbors.

GAMLIN, Annie Elizabeth ELLER

d: Mar 27 1953, Bronson, Bourbon Co, KS

The Moran Herald, Allen Co, KS - Mrs. W. H. Gamlin, aged 77, lost her life last Friday morning when the family home was destroyed by fire of undetermined origin. Others of the Gamlin family, living in the two-story frame house four and a half miles east and a half mile south of Mildred, were Mr. Gamlin, the son Clyde, aged 43, who escaped with minor injuries. Members of the family discovered the fire about 3:30 a.m. and being unable to extinguish it, called neighbors who called the Kincaid Fire Department. A nearby well was emptied but the building was soon enveloped in flames and the roof and the walls collapsed. When it was discovered that Mrs. Gamlin had not come out, the heat was too intense to re-enter. It is presumed that she went back into the house for some purpose and was overcome by the fumes. Portions of her body were not discovered until after ten o'clock. Nothing was saved from the home. A collection of firearms was salvaged from the burning debris, consisted of about 456 pieces of shotguns, rifles, revolvers, pistols; an assortment of knives and also a number of tools which Clyde used in the repair of guns. Funeral rites for Mrs. Gamlin were held at Urich, MO, where the family went on Saturday accompanied by another son, Ray Gamlin, and family from Nebraska. Burial was made there in the family plot in the Hendrick Cemetery.

His father lived and died in Benton County. In December, 1846, Richard C. Garland was married to Miss Frances Edwards and for over 68 years they traveled life's pathways together, each becoming more dear to the other as the curtains were drawn about the evening of life. He has gone to his rest, while she remains to mourn his loss. Six daughters - all living and all married: Rowena, widow of Alex Witherspoon, near Gaines; Melina, wife of I. N. Denham of Brownington; Ellen, wife of J. M. Hudson of Windsor; Emma, wife of John Parks, near Coal; Mary, wife of R. W. T. Browning of Cement, Oklahoma; and Alice, wife of attorney C. I.

He lived to bless mankind and died to live again. No storm cloud could change his sunshine to shadow - a short while ago his house was burned. He simply smiled and said "It might have been worse". Mr. Garland was a successful farmer and dealer in stock. He commenced in early life in Henry county without capital and at his death possessed 6 excellent farms, besides grazing lands, and his beautiful town residence. But he left to his posterity the greatest of all bequests, the example to an upright and honorable life, of industry and economy, which led to the accumulation of wealth, and greatest and most blessed of all, an untarnished and lovely Christian character.

Clinton MO - Mrs. James Garrett, after a continuous residence in Clinton of 54 years, died at her home, 615 South Orchard street, at 3:10 p.m. Saturday, after a short illness. Intense suffering marked her last days with her family, but she passed peacefully with three of her children beside her. All of her children and two grandchildren spent Mother's Day with Mrs. Garrett just two weeks ago Sunday, and left her in happy spirits and in her usual health. The memory of that beautiful day together will be a comforting memory to her family. Denisa Jane Michael was born February 26, 1851, in Sullivan Co., Mo., the daughter of Jonathan A. and Sarah Michael. When she was 11 years of age her mother died and she, with the fortitude of her pioneer mother, assumed the home making responsibilities of the family and reared her younger brother and sister. Her father was a progressive farmer and local judge, whose duties often took him from home, and the stories of young Denisa's management are interesting tales she has passed on to her children. Among them is her experience with a coal oil lamp, the first in the community, which she tried to light by turning the wick up very high. She lived as a girl thru the stirring pre-civil war days when rural schools were of but three months duration, but she had an alert and inquiring mind and acquired more knowledge than many a school room trained woman can boast. On the Friday before her death she discussed the Townsend Bill with Mrs. Morgan, who had arrived the day before to help care for her mother. October 1, 1868, Denisa Jane Michael and James Garrett, a neighbor boy, were married and the first years of their married life were spent near her old home, where the three older children were born. Later they moved to Paducah, Ky., where the three youngest children were born. In 1882 their son, Irving, died and was buried at Paducah, and the same year they moved to Missouri, spending a short time on a farm north of Deepwater, then moving to part of the Owen land which was across from the entrance gates to the old Owen home site, where they spent some years. They moved to town when Mr. Garrett went into the coal business with James Sheldon and for 30 years they occupied the present home. April 17, 1927, her husband preceded her in death and last year a second son died, leaving four children surviving, Mrs. Sarah Whitecotton and Lawrence of the home; James Albert of Frederick, Okla., and Mrs. Jennie M. Morgan of Walters, Okla., and 10 grandchildren. Early in life Mrs. Garrett joined the Christian church and ever remained a faithful member. Thru her entire life she closely followed the precepts of her Master - doing all the good she could. The hungry were never turned from her door and in homes where sickness and death entered she could be found. The feebleness of advanced age kept her close to her home of late years but her keen interest in nature and her love for her friends and flowers filled her days. The funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Consalus and Peck Funeral Home. Pall bearers were Spanish-American War Veterans as follows: Dean Keyes, A. H. Harris, Joe Powell, John Westerman, Ben Holcomb and Carter Cannan. Her son, James Albert, and Mr. Morgan, her son-in-law, were veterans of this conflict. Her husband was a veteran of the war between the states.

bur: Appleton City Cemetery, Appleton City, St. Clair Co, MO

Clinton MO, Sep 1929 - C. W. Gates - Nearly three generations ago, as time is measured by the life of man, the grandfather of the subject of this sketch settled on a farm in Henry county, Mo., a few miles north of Montrose. In that day farm homes were few and far between; wild game was abundant; the prairies were waving with wild grasses and the forest were scarcely touched with the ax of civilization. It was in 1841, when the grandfather, one of the earliest settlers of Walker township coming from Cooper county, located on the farm which has ever since remained in the Gates family. W. A. Gates, the father of C. W., was a babe about six months old when the family moved to Henry county and at the present time at the ripe old age of 88, he is residing with a son on the original homestead and was able to attend the funeral of his son held in Appleton City. C. W. Gates, Ches., as he was familiarly called by his friends, was born in the old home, April 4, 1869, and died at his home in Parkville, Mo., September 8, 1929, after a lingering illness of several months. Mr. Gates was of a family of ten children, eight of whom are living - J. M., Rufus and A. V., Montrose; Elijah, Clinton; C. P., Urich; D. T. Gates, west of Clinton; Mrs. J. W. Hibler and Mrs. W. R. Dunn, Urich. In June, 1896, Mr. Gates was married to Theodosia Morse, and five daughters came to bless them, two of whom died in infancy. The three daughters living, and who were present at the funeral, are - Thelma, a teacher in the city schools of Sioux Falls, S.D.; Ora a teacher in Park College, Parkville, and Julia, a student in Park College. Many years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Gates decided to locate in Appleton City, and on a nice suburban tract he built them a modern home, surrounding it with a wilderness of fruits and flowers and there they lived happily until about four years ago, when the home was broken up by the death of Mrs. Gates. A short time before his death, he decided to locate in Parkville, where he could have a home with two of his children, and it was in this new home he passed away. Mr. Gates was a contractor and builder and there stand today, scattered over Bates, Henry and St. Clair counties, many fine farm buildings, city dwellings, churches and schools as monuments to his fine skill as a workman, and to his honesty as a contractor. It has often been said of him that he never thought of profits until after the job was finished according to plans agreed upon. In his home life he was a devoted husband and father and while he did not leave a great estate to his family, he left something more endurable and valuable. He had striven to give his daughters the opportunity to obtain a liberal education and his greatest happiness seemed to be in their accomplishments. Funeral services were conducted in the Presbyterian church at Appleton City and was attended by a large crowd of relatives and friends, and he was buried beside his wife and infant children in Appleton City's beautiful cemetery. There were many and beautiful floral offerings.

Daniel Gaupp died at his home 1 3/4 miles east of Quarles, December 14, 1933. He had been ill for several weeks and death came as a release from the suffering caused by a paralytic stroke. Daniel Gaupp was born March 4, 1865, in Belleville, IL. When a small lad, only five or six years old, he came with his parents to Henry County and for several years they lived on a farm south of Clinton which is now owned by W. A. Martin. Mr. Gaupp was a member of the Methodist Church at Quarles and was a faithful attendant. He never married, but was content to live on his farm near Quarles with only a hired man to assist in the tilling of his 120 acre farm. He is survived by one brother, Thomas Gaupp, North Third St., Clinton. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church in Clinton with burial in Englewood Cemetery under the direction of Wilkinson Funeral Home.

Clinton Missouri, Mar 5 1904 - The death of Mrs. Thomas Gaupp occurred at the home of her husband on North Third Tuesday, March 1, at 12:30 p.m. She was taken sick in the night, Thursday, with pneumonia and a physician summoned. Sunday night, a little daughter was born, which only lived one hour and the wee little blossom was transplanted to paradise, so soon to be joined by the mother, who could not withstand the ravages of fever. Born in Greenville, Ill., Sept. 6, 1879. Her parents names were Alonzo and Ada Allred, who came to Missouri some years ago. Her mother Mrs. Rev. Stone, and sister Miss Lula Allred, survive. A sister, Miss Ella Allred, died last August. The bereaved husband is Thomas Gaupp, an employee at the Clinton pottery. They were married Jan. 7, 1899. Indeed he has the sympathy of all in his sorrow, for to him the sweetest wife that ever lived has breathed her life away, while the angels lingered near to carry her to heaven and their little one. Mrs. Gaupp united with the Christian church under the preaching of Bro. Ernest H. Williamson in 1902 and her Sunday School class was her constant pleasure.
