Anna is survived by one son, Don Minich and wife, Sharon, Clinton; one grandson, Gary Minich and wife, Tiffani, and three great-grandsons, Gavin Minich and Garrett and Grant Mayse, all of Lake Lottawana; sister, Lorraine Scott and husband, Durward, Lowry City; brother, Gene Bunch of Warsaw; also many nieces and nephews. Preceding Anna in death were her son, Billy Joe Minich; her parents, William and Mary Bunch; brothers, Leo Bunch, Ray Bunch and John Bunch, and sisters, Opal Nichols, Irene Jones and Winifred Jones. Anna lived in the LaDue-Clinton area all of her life. Most of that time was as a homemaker. She had her own commercial sewing machine and made purses, men's western shirts, etc. She loved to quilt and made many over the years. Also her love for gardening never ceased. Just last summer, with the help of her caregiver, Lynn, she planted tomatoes, green beans, etc. She loved her family and from the time grandson, Gary, arrived, she doted on him and he spent many enjoyable weekends on the small farm where she lived. She loved kids and remembering one of her favorite times when she made sugar cookies with Garret and Grant, then 10 and 12. She decked them out in aprons and chef hats. We aren't sure but what Garret thought he was too old for that, but he took part and Grant loved it and at her request they both posed for pictures. Anna was always thrilled when Gavin came to visit Don and Sharon because she was always rewarded with a visit from him. As great-grandmas do, she always provided a snack and "the box" filled with toys to play with. Even after her move to Truman Lake Manor, Gavin went to see her. Anna lived a long loving life -- she will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Funeral services were held at Vansant-Mills Chapel on Friday. February 12. Interment was in Bear Creek Cemetery, Montrose.

Henry County Democrat, Thursday, Jan 11 1923 - Mrs. Horn Died Thursday Morning - Mrs. N. H. Horn passed away at 8:30 o'clock Thursday morning at the home of her daughter Miss Lillia Horn 129 East Jefferson Street. The end came after three weeks of intense suffering from a broken hip, an injury which she sustained in a fall last December 14. At her advancing age, 81 years, the injury was all the more severe and it was feared by her friends that this good woman could never rise from her bed of pain to continue her life of goodness and usefulness. On Wednesday night brought relief to the tired body. Miss Mary Adelia Redman was born in Bowling Green, Ky., November 11, 1841, a daughter of Rev. J. Redman, a South Methodist minister. After the great war, it was a wonderful pleasure to her to celebrate her birthday with the nation as Armistice Day or "Peace Day." She was married in 1865 to N. H. Horn in Bowling Green and they moved to Missouri in 1870 to Johnson County, near Holden. Her husband preceded her into the Great Beyond in 1907 at Walker, Mo. The following year she moved to Clinton. The past summer was one of the happiest imaginable for this good lady and her children, for, with her daughter, Miss Lillia, she made the long trip to Seattle and Spokane, Washington to visit her children, the memories of this wonderful visit bringing happiness into the life of the entire family and doing much to soothe the long painful hours after the sad injury. She was survived by six children, Miss Lillia Horn, of Clinton, Mrs. Lee Wood, of Seattle, Wash., Mrs. Mary Wiley Wright, of Seattle, Wash., Mrs. G. E. Hamilton, of Spokane, Wash., John Horn, of Walker Mo., Mrs. E. C. Campbell, of Sedalia, and a stepchild, Mrs. Jennie Key, of Deepwater. Funeral arrangements have not yet been made.

d: 1923

James Houk died the morning of July 20th, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. O. Sperry, near Hortense, where he had made his home for years, and been tenderly cared for. His other daughter, Mrs. Cornelia Harvey, had been at his bedside the past three weeks ministering to his comfort those last days on earth. Mr. Houk was a man loved and respected by all. In his youth he fought all four years under General Price in the Confederate army. Up until his last illness he enjoyed horseback riding. It is very seldom you see a man of past four score years mount a horse and ride with such ease as he. His body was taken to the Harmony Baptist church, in Benton county, Saturday afternoon, where Rev. William Briggs preached the funeral and he was laid in the cemetery nearby. James Houk was born November 28, 1838, and died July 20, 1923, being 85 years, 7 months, 22 days. He was converted in the year of 1870, and united with the Baptist church. In the year of 1860 he was married to Rena Vaughn; to this union was born one child - William Houk, of Linden, Mo. His mother died in his infancy. In the year of 1862, he was married to Mary Elizabeth Burton, and to this union four children were born - two boys and two girls - Jeffie, the oldest, dying in infancy; Mrs. Cornelia Frances Harvey, Opolis, Kansas; Mrs. Matilda Jane Sperry, of Coal, Mo.; James Ruben Houk, of Fort Scott, Kansas. His wife preceded him to the better world April 13, 1899. He was married again to Mary Elizabeth Scercy. She preceded him to this better world June 15, 1920. Since that time he had made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Sperry, of Coal, Mo. He leaves to mourn his loss, four children, four grandsons and one great grandson and a host of relatives and friends. The last three years of his life he was tenderly cared for in the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. O. Sperry, where the entire family did all they could to comfort and make his last days as pleasant as possible which he seemed to enjoy so well. The major part of his Christian life was in Harmony Baptist church, which he loved and honored until the day of death and said to bury his body in the cemetery nearby. He ever loved his Saviour, his church and his people. The writer of this visited him in his last affliction; talked much of his hope, his promise, which were all to the joy of his heart. His soul would overflow with joy and praise for the goodness of God. He told me of his experience, what a great sinner he was and what a great Savior he found; said he wanted me to preach his funeral. He was calm and in his right mind. Only waiting the summons: "Child come Home," the battle is fought, the victory won, the sufferings are all over - absent from the body at home with the Lord. - Elder Wm. Briggs.

Englewood Cemetery HI-HY, Clinton, Clinton Twp, Henry Co, MO
John Herbert Houk, 39, of Clinton, was struck by a southbound M. K. & T. freight train near the Rogers Avenue crossing, just south of the Katy stockyards, about 8 o'clock Wednesday night of last week. He died at his home on West Rogers Avenue about 11:05 that night from the injuries. According to evidence submitted at the inquest, which was called by Dr. W. T. Jennings, county coroner, at the county courtroom Friday afternoon, Houk was sitting on a rail of the main line with his head down when the extra freight came through Clinton. A member of his family said he was bothered with a bunion on one foot and he had probably sat down and taken off his shoe to relieve the pain. Dr. Hughes testified that he was called to see the injured man at the scene of the accident that evening. Mr. Houk was unconscious, there were cuts about the head and scalp, the upper left part of the chest was injured and about four ribs fractured on the left side. He was bleeding from the left ear. Dr. Hughes stated that the head and chest injuries were major ones and either would have been enough to cause his death. He also said it was dark at this time and difficult to see far. Dr. Walker's testimony as to the Injuries mainly corroborated Dr. Hughes'. He brought out that there was a puncture under the left ear and most of the cuts and bruises were on the left side of the body. W. M. Hart, a neighbor of the Houks, heard the train's alarm whistle and went to the scene at once, he told the coroner's jury.

On Monday, following her marriage, she had a severe relapse and tho she was carefully nursed, she died Tuesday morning. She was born June 30, 1879, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. N. A. Auld. She made many friends here during her father's ministry at Stones Chapel and, at the death of her mother in 1895, she tried faithfully to fill the mother's place in the hearts of her two orphaned brothers, and right well she did succeed. Mrs. Howard was a college student of considerable ability, having attended some of the best colleges and having graduated twice. Only a few hours before her death, it is said, she prayed earnestly that the all-wise Father might guide and keep her husband and brothers in the straight and narrow way. She was laid to rest by her mother in Stones Chapel cemetery. - Rushville Times, Rushville, Schuyler County, Illinois, March 27, 1902 Obituary Leota May Howard, nee Auld, wife of Frank G.
