Bethlehem Cemetery, Bethlehem Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO, Jan 1923 - Allen Jones At Rest - "Come unto Me all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest." And so the pain racked body of Allen Jones obeyed the summons of the Master and went home to eternal rest January 17, 1923. He was born near Warrensburg, Mo., March 24, 1856, being at the time of his death 66 years, 9 months, 23 days old. He was married February 26th, 1909 to Miss Frances Black, who, with one brother, C. W. Jones, east of Clinton, and one sister, Mrs. J. C. Bradley, Kent, Washington, are left to mourn his death. They mourn not alone for the entire community feels the loss of such a neighbor and citizen. He united with the Christian church at an early age and was ever ready to do with his might all he could to help in the master's cause. When the old Freedom church burned some years ago, it seemed as if one of the family had gone, so long had he lived under its shadow,; he was one of the leading members and was always at the church service. He is a grandson of the late Joshua Swinney, one of the earliest settlers of this county, who built the large white house now owned by Dick Simes, east of Clinton. When is sister died leaving three small children to the mercies of the cold and cruel world, Allen and his aged mother took the youngest, a tiny boy, and not only gave him a home, but as far as possible, gave him a mother's love and care. He was brought up to love and reverence the church, and all things good and beautiful. After the death of Allen's mother, he didn't shirk his duty but still held to the little boy who for the second time was made motherless, and thus he grew into a fine, good man. The funeral was at his late home, January 19, 1923, after which the body was tenderly laid to rest in the family lot in dear old Bethlehem.

JONES, Amasa Rev.
b: Apr 28 1796, Rindge, Cheshire Co, NH
d: Apr 17 1870, Deepwater, Henry Co, MO
bur:
Montrose Cemetery, Montrose, Deepwater Twp, Henry Co, MO
Germantown MO, Apr 28 1870 - Amasa Jones was born at Rindge, Cheshire County, New Hampshire, April 28, 1796, and died at Deepwater, Henry County, Missouri, April 17, 1870. His father's name was Asa and his mother's Mary. He was one of a large family, nearly all of whom have preceded him to the world of spirits. He remembered his Creator in the days of his youth and in early life became a follower of Jesus. The consecration of himself to the service of his Master was whole-hearted. In answer to the inquiry, "Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?" God spread out before him the mission field. In his endeavors to discern the indications of Providence to duty he was made to behold the broad field for Christian enterprise among the benighted heathens of all nations of the earth. These researches, laying the foundation of characteristic benevolence and self-denying toil, resulted in the resolve, "Here am I, Lord, send me." He desired to teach the heathen and to lead them to Christ. On February 15, 1821, he was married to Miss Roxana Stearns, of Ashburnham, Worcester County, Massachusetts. In a few days afterwards he set out with a number of others to go to a mission field of the then Far West by an overland route, there being then but few facilities for traveling. He came out under the auspices of the American Board of Foreign Missions, and became an assistant missionary at the Harmony Mission, a station established on the Marais des Cygnes, about three miles from its mouth, and in the extreme western part of the then new state of Missouri. This was then the home of the Osage Indians. His labors there were principally in the school. His letters spread upon the pages of the Missionary Herald, of the years 1825 and 1835, inclusive, amply testify to his devotion to the cause of civilizing and Christianizing the Indians. He attained to other spheres of usefulness. He devoted much of his time, spared from the school, to the study of theology. It seemed necessary for him to study medicine also. Dr. W. N. Belcher, now in New York, was for six years the physician of the station. But his health failing, he was required to quit the post. Foreseeing this step, and knowing Mr. Jones' general adaptation to the work, Dr. Belcher recommended that he prepare himself, and he studied medicine under the doctor for some time. But the taking care of souls was a higher sphere of life and duty for him. He was ordained and set apart to the ministry of the gospel at Harmony Mission, October 12, 1830, by the Arkansas Presbytery, having been licensed to preach a few years before. He ever had a realizing sense of the grave responsibilities of the office. But his soul was fired with fresh hopes and nobler aspirations. But as the white man advanced the red man receded, and in 1835, the Harmony Mission Station was abandoned. The old site is still discernible near Papinville, Bates County. Dr. Jones moved with his family, his wife and two daughters, Mary and Jane, to Deepwater, then in Rives County, where he procured a tract of land and opened a settlement. A church was soon organized and he took charge of it as pastor, and continued so till July, 1867, when Rev. B. F. Powelson was associated with him. He preached the word in many places throughout this region. and the old settlers can well testify to his attachment to the cross of Christ and zeal for the glory of God. He went about doing good, and was successful in winning many souls to Christ. He was quite successful in the practice of medicine, and contributed much towards ameliorating the sufferings of mankind. He was an earnest, self sacrificing, indefatigable laborer in his Master's vineyard. He sought not - desired not - compensation for his toil, from among the stores of earth. His practice as a physician, and the results of his own ingenuity and industry secured for himself and family a comfortable living and ample provision for old age. He was a student all his life - assiduous and unrelaxing in his efforts in early life, and determined, fixed ever in his purpose, to acquaint himself with the movements of mankind, in the various spheres of life, and specially to keep himself posted in regard to the progress of the church of Christ. He was a close reader, and though he had never seen the great improvements of the age, remaining at his post on the frontier, yet he had a fair knowledge of these things, and his descriptions of them were astonishingly accurate. His independence of mind and originality of thought, shaped and drawn out, no doubt by necessity, were evidenced in quite a number of productions, material and immaterial. He looked with favor upon the progressive spirit of the age. But he set his face against countenancing, in any way, the great evils of the world. He refused to enter upon any compromise with intemperance, profanity or Sabbath breaking. He was unflinching in his devotion to the great principles of Christianity, and sought in every conceivable way the establishment and perpetuity of truth, and the maintenance of the right. He labored among all classes faithfully for the sowing of the precious seed, for the culture of the tender vines, and for the maturity of the fruits of the Spirit. He oftentimes seemed impatient in sickness - desiring to be in his place with God's worshippers, and fearing lest his absence should prove a hindrance to the cause of Christ. His zeal thus carried him sometimes beyond the capabilities of the flesh. The last Sabbath he spent on earth was one of special exertion and anxiety to him. It was the Sabbath preceding the meeting of his own Presbytery and a neighboring Presbytery among his people. He wanted the people to be interested in these things. He longed for this meeting. He wished to see the last vestige of separation carried away and the two branches of the Presbyterian Church inseparably united. He longed to greet the brethren once more, and congratulate them on the accomplishment of so noble a work. As Simeon to see Christ, so he longed to see the running together of these kindred streams. He was desirous to share with his people the promised feast of love and joy. He attended services in the morning, and a prayer meeting in the evening, where he made an earnest appeal to sinners to come to Christ. In his last days, the few appeals he attempted were exceedingly earnest. The fire glowed fervently on the altar of his love. His soul yearned for the salvation of those who surrounded him. His conversation indicated a ripening for heaven and glory. For many months he seemed to be amid the scenes of the Delectable Mountains and the land of Beulah. He was near Christ, and could well call upon his friends to come to him. And yet his soul longings were "Nearer my God to thee." The funeral services were held in the Adobe Church, (a building the deceased had erected during his life) on the morning of the 18th, the room being crowded to its utmost capacity. The corpse was taken from the church to its place of burial, one mile east of Germantown, preceded by the members of the Osage and Southwest Missouri Presbyteries and followed by a large concourse of friends.

Next she worked as a "Rosey the Riveter" during World War II. Later she started her own business, as child care center. This was her true love. She was a very kind and gentle person, who had always loved children. She had adopted a son and three years later received a baby girl on her 40th birthday as a foster child. She raised them both and gave up many things for Ronnie and Betty. She didn't have much money but always found some for them. Some of the kids she cared for stayed in touch with her after they were grown and in fact she cared for some of their children. She told Betty recently that if she could ever walk again, she would love to be able to care for children again. Besides her love for children, she used to cook a lot. She was a great cook. She also loved to talk. She could talk non-stop for hours. In fact her best friend in Southern California used to talk with her for hours on the phone and then she would walk next door and talk some more. Of course, she also helped to take care of Mrs. Gallagher, who was crippled with arthritis. One of her other favorite pastimes was going to the ocean and listening to the ocean waves and sounds. She moved back to Clinton in 1979. In 1985, she had major surgery and was not expected to live through it. She was never a worrier, and so she came through the surgery with no problem. Eight years later, she had major surgery again and again came through it. Unfortunately, this took a lot out of her. She will be greatly missed. She is survived by one son, Ronald Jones, Seaside, California; one daughter, Bliss Daneri, Seattle, Washington; two sisters, Selma McNutt, Kansas City, and Wilma L. Brown, Clinton, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and three brothers.

Undated Clipping - Murdered in Oklahoma - Cecil Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Jones, of Clinton, Okla., and grandson of Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Jones, west of Calhoun, came to a tragic death Sunday, Aug. 8th. His father was in Ft. Smith, buying furniture, and Cecil did a big day's work Saturday in the store and went to Oklahoma City Sunday morning (a distance of 104 miles) after his wife, who was in the hospital there. Shortly after noon he went for her and she was not quite ready. Her brother was there with her and he asked Cecil to go get his girl, Miss Alice Allspaugh. They both went after the girl and were returning (the three) when a Ford truck coming on a cross street hooked on to Cecil's left back fender of his new Oakland roadster and tore it off and kept going. This angered Cecil, and he turned his car and pursued them, stopping his car in front of them and began to ask them (a white man driving and a Mexican), why they didn't stop, all still in their cars. The brother-in-law, Sherman Morton, and the Mexican soon became engaged in a quarrel and both were out of their cars. Cecil then got out to see the trouble and the driver who never got out threw his gun to the Mexican, who shot Cecil through the heart and neck. Morton then turned to flee and he shot him, killing both instantly, each one was shot twice and either shot would have been fatal. He then had turned to the girl who was in the car yet, when a bystander, who had seen it all demanded that he shoot him, covered him with with his gun and attempted to put him in his car and in so doing the Mexican showed fight, and the gun was discharged going through the bystander's shirt. The Mexican then escaped, but later was caught, identified by the girl, the bystander and the driver. The trial of the Mexican and others will be held in September. The funeral of Cecil Jones and his brother-in-law, were both held in Oklahoma City, Tuesday, August 10th. The body of Cecil was taken to Clinton, Okla., for burial.

Clinton Eye, Clinton, MO, Feb 1927 - Again the dark angel of death has come into our home and taken our dear father, George. W. Jones, home to heaven. Just 15 months and 13 days since we gave our darling son, Floyd W. George, to God and who suffered so long, and at that time, Grandpa said why couldn't it be me in place of son, and now he has gone to him. Another good father has taken his departure, and while absent from us, he is not forgotten. His influence remains to cheer and encourage those who were near and dear to him, while on earth. Alas, 'twas hard to give him up, but God's will, not ours be done. But we mourn not as those who have no hope, for he accepted Christ as his Savior when a young man and united with the Tebo Baptist church Sixty Years ago and lived a devoted Christian life to his death, always singing God's praises and praying. All through his long sickness, which has been since Thanksgiving, he sand and prayed all the time, his favorite song, "The Unclouded Day." One day when he was so sick he said to his daughter, "I know what is the matter, I have quit singing," but he was so weak he could hardly sing, but sang, by and by I'll go and meet her on that other bright shore. Won't that be a happy meeting on that other bright shore. George W. Jones was born May 23, 1848, near Leesville; died February 5, 1927, making him 78 years, 8 months and 13 days old. On September 7, 1872, he was united in marriage to Susan Caroline Parker. To this union one child was born. Mrs. T. R. Gill, who lives at Lewis Station. His wife preceded him to the Better World nearly 17 years ago and "Uncle George," as everyone called him, has made his home with his daughter, since. Uncle George took down sick the second day of December, 1926, with rheumatism, and from that seemed like everything went wrong with him. He had three good doctors called a couple days following: had a good trained nurse, but all said nothing can be done, but he was ready to go when God called him. Besides the dear daughter who was so good to him and who fell at her post of duty on Monday night before he died, and was not able to be up any more. He leaves a near granddaughter and son-in-law, who were the pride of his heart; two brothers, W. H. Jones, at Lewis, and J. M. Jones, Afton, Okla., also a host of relatives and friends to mourn his going. His brother, from Afton, came to see him and as he seemed to get better he returned home. His brother and wife, here, did everything they could but we could not keep him. God needed him and had a place for him. His chief occupation was gardening and fishing. He did love to fish and had caught fish every month in the year for two years, and his garden was always a beauty, never letting any weeds grow in it and had planned this year to raise some vegetables for the Calhoun Colt Show and talked so much about it while he was sick. Everybody liked Uncle George - the young as well as the older ones, and he will be missed in the home, at the store and every place. On Sunday, at 10:30 a.m., Bro. Faris, pastor of Mt. Gilead Baptist church, preached the funeral at the home of his daughter to a large crowd. They left at 11 o'clock for Tebo Baptist church, the funeral to be at 2 o'clock, but the roads were so bad they did not get there until 4 o'clock, and Bro. Billie Briggs, a life time friend, preached the funeral there to a large crowd of relatives and friends and then the body was lain in the cemetery near by, under the most beautiful flowers to await the resurrection day.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, May 17 2006 - Glen Melvin "Billy" Jones, youngest son of Robert Lee Jones and Maude Ethel Dannatt Jones, was born July 1, 1924, 2 1/2 miles south of Calhoun, one of eight children. One brother, Louis Dale, died at five months of age. Billy went to be with the Lord on April 19, 2006, at Westwood Nursing Center, Clinton. In 1947, he left the farm to attend six-month auctioneer course at the Reppert School of Auctioneering in Decatur, Illinois. He graduated out of a class of 261 students. Billy was later selected by one of his teachers and wife, Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Drake of Decatur, Illinois, to be auctioneer at the auction house they owned. In September 1947, while at the Decatur Auto Auction, he was introduced by his former boss, Mrs. Leona Drake, to his wife-to-be, Belly Elizabeth Radcliff of Tuscola, Illinois. Billy and Betty were united in marriage March 28, 1948, at the Cartwright Methodist Church in Tuscola, Illinois. To this union, two daughters and one son were born. In 1951, Billy and Betty decided to leave Illinois and moved back to Missouri. They purchased a farm one mile west of Calhoun on 52 Highway, where they resided for 47 years. Billy surrendered his life to Christ at an early age of 13, at a revival meeting at Calhoun Baptist Church. Later he was ordained as a deacon on April 25, 1982. Billy served as assistant Sunday School teacher for 15 years and served as song leader for 15 years in Sunday School and five years for the church. Billy and Betty rejoice that each of their three children, as well as sons and daughter-in-law have named Christ as their personal Savior and today serve in various capacities in their respective churches. They strongly believe in the power of prayer and how difficult it would be to rear children properly without Christ at the center of their lives. They believe that parents today should teach their children to work and save, regardless of their financial status. Looking back, Billy says he sees now that neither Christ nor the Bible ever failed him.

None ever entered that home on a mission of business that did not find a kindly welcome and a dispatch of matters that betokened rugged honest and fair dealing. If on a mission of mercy, an attentive ear, a warm heart and an open purse greeted the visitor. Many homeless ones found a place of refuge beneath this roof. Social outcasts were taken in, warmed, fed, clothed and filled with ambitions for a better life. In short, the life lived by Oliver Jones, in Clinton, was full of good deeds and worthy of emulation. He was born in New York in February, 1821; was married to Lillis Atwood in 1843. His wife died February 15, 1903. His going was deferred until 9:30 p.m. May 3, 1903 The father of Oliver Jones was a tanner and the son learned the trade and worked for his father for wages and after he had reached his majority, finally succeeded to the business, in partnership with his brother. When the new firm had become well established, a fire destroyed the entire plant and left the owners penniless, but with determination and business integrity, the plant was soon running successfully again. Mr. Jones sold out and went west, finally locating in Minnesota, where he invested in lands and entered actively into farming and stock raising. Having gained a competence, he traveled some in the far west and, in search of a milder climate, ten years ago he bought a home in Clinton where he spent his winters. His summers were passed in Minnesota, where he also maintained a home. His household was composed of himself, his wife and daughter, Miss Eva. His son, O. A. Jones, lives near Flemington, while his three other daughters are married and live in Minnesota. Funeral services were at the home and the remains were taken to Wykoff, Minn. for internment, accompanied by his son and daughters - Miss Eva, Mrs. Jas. Jones and Mrs. H. A. Wells. His other daughter, Mrs. Egleston, is at her home in Minnesota and will meet them.

We thank God for blessing us with such a great man. He took pride in being a man of his word and he valued honesty. He always worked hard, used good judgment and he enjoyed the simple things in life. Put a fishing pole, gun or his metal detector in his hand and he was ready to go in a flash. He had a special smile, a caring heart and a warm embrace that was worth a million dollars. To his children in their troubles and their joys, he took pride in all achievements and mistakes and he was always there for his two boys, Brian and Stephen. With his eight grandchildren, Ashley, Kayley, Tanner, Mariah, Sierra, Shianne, Addi and Carter, he looked for ways to tease them. Once he came home from work and he started teasing Mariah and he said the highlight of his day was thinking of ways to tease her.

Clinton MO - R. A. Jones Died - At his home west of Calhoun Sunday morning at 3:30. He had been in failing health for several years, but grew worse the last few months and since then his children had taken turns staying to nurse and cheer him and their brave little mother. All were at his bedside during the last illness except George, who lives in California. Reuben Addison Jones, son of Acrey Berry and Clarissa Jones, was born in Madison county, Va., March 13, 1851. He came with his parents to Missouri in 1859 and settled on the place that had been his home until his death. He was married to Frances E. Parks, October 9, 1873, who survives him. To this union were born nine children - Frank, Clinton, Okla.; Mrs. Lena Breeding, Muskogee, Okla.; George, Los Angeles, Cal.; Lee, near Calhoun; Kenneth, the twin brother of Lee, died in infancy; Jennie, Mrs. Tom Clark, of Calhoun; Eugene, Charley and Rolla, near Calhoun. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Eunice Parks, near his home, who was ever willing to do what she could and one brother, Hiram B. Jones, of Leedey, Okla. He was very fond of his grandchildren, 15 of whom survive. He was a great sufferer during his last illness, but expressed himself many times as being willing and ready to go, advising his children to read their Bible daily and live by its teachings. Many times he quoted this passage of scripture - "Come unto Me, all ye that are heavy laden and I will give you rest," stating that he longed for that rest. Mr. Jones was a popular musician, playing the violin and organ with equal skill. He also had a splendid voice and a large repertoire of song and music. He visited the homes of sick friends and cheered them with the ministry of music. He visited homes of laughter, singing songs of mirth, making his gift of music a part of his life. No gathering was complete without him. Just one year ago he spent a Sunday afternoon in the home of the deceased editor of this paper, when he sang and played several hours to the delight of T. O. Smith, who was then ill, and his invalid wife. Such a happy afternoon it was, the last earthly meeting time of old friends and relatives, Rube and Fanny and T. O. and Frankie. The next time all come it was for T. O. Smith's funeral; the next time for his wife's. This time a part of their children went to his funeral. Now just Cousin Fannie is left - she who has courageously met every emergency; she who has shared every responsibility of her husband's life, shielding him and their children from every hardship possible. On her, this going will be the hardest for we know these days will be lonely, more so than it is possible for those of us who have not endured it, can realize. Her children all have homes of their own, but they are the fine children who she has had so great a part in giving to the world and they will bring comfort and cheer to her, as much as humanly possible. Rube Jones for years bred and trained fine horses and cattle. He was always a prominent figure at all fairs and horse shows, sitting erectly in his saddle, as he was never as happy as when on a fine horse and he always owned the best in Missouri. Hospitality always reigned supreme in the home of Rube and Fannie Jones. We always enjoyed a visit there. My mother said she would rather hear Rube Jones play and sing than anyone she knew and that Fannie Jones was the best and finest woman she knew. So naturally we children loved them nearly next to our own parents. Our hearts go out to Cousin Fannie in her hour of sorrow and the many hours of loneliness as well as to her children. The funeral was held in the Calhoun Baptist church Tuesday afternoon. His body was laid in the Calhoun cemetery.

Clinton Daily Democrat - Nov. 29, 1967 Last rites for Lee Jones, 82, of 523 East Jefferson, Clinton, prominent farmer and livestock dealer of Henry County, who passed away at the Wetzel Hospital in Clinton Wednesday, November 22, 1967 at 8:00 pm where he had been a patient since October 30, were held at the Calhoun Baptist Church Sunday, November 26. Burial was in the Calhoun Cemetery with the Housey Funeral Home in charge. Robert Lee Jones, twin son of Reuben A. and Fannie (Parks) Jones was born one and one-half miles west of Calhoun, June 26, 1885, and departed this life Wednesday, November 22, 1967, at 8:00 p.m. at the Wetzel Hospital in Clinton at the age of 82 years and five months. He was preceded in death by an infant son, Louis Dale; his parents, three brothers, one sister and two grandchildren. Early in life he professed his faith in Christ and united with the Calhoun Baptist Church where he served as a deacon for 47 years. He was most grateful that he was physically able to attend the church's 110th anniversary last August 27th, and on that occasion, he and his son, Floyd, were honored for having served for 16 years as the only father-son deacon team in the history of the church. Mr. Jones was always a wonderful counselor and close friend to the many dedicated pastors who served the church. He had a special interest and understanding for young people, and was deeply concerned about his two grandsons in service, Darrell Don Ward, stationed in Vietnam and Brad Cooper, stationed in Germany. On February 17, 1909, he was united in marriage to Maude Ethel Dannatt of Calhoun. They made their first home for 10 years one mile west of Calhoun on the farm now owned by their youngest son, Col. Melvin (Billy). They moved later to a farm 2 1/2 miles south of Calhoun, known as Catalpa Grove Stock Farm, where they resided 48 years. This home, with his faithful Christian companion by his side, was his castle, for it was here that he was able to exercise his love for the soil, his cattle and his riding horses, and to extend the hospitality of his home to friends, relatives and strangers. It was also here that he and Mrs. Jones celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary on February 17, 1959. On April 4, 1967, they moved to their present home at 523 East Jefferson, Clinton. Mr. Jones was an ardent Democrat and always proud that he was named for the famous General Robert E. Lee. He and his sons were known throughout the South and Middle West where for years they sold and exhibited mules. In later years, they judged some of the nation's leading mule shows. For many years, he was Superintendent of the Mule Department of the Calhoun Colt Show and was in attendance each year, except for two when hospitalized. His "going home" on Thanksgiving Eve was in a measure, timely, since many times he had expressed joy and thankfulness for having his seven children and their families present for various reunions and good times enriched with good music and wholesome fun. He is survived by his devoted wife, Maude, of the home, who lovingly cared for him through his illness, and who, with a daughter, Ethlyn, were at his bedside when he passed away; sons, Floyd and Col. Melvin (Billy) of Calhoun and Veryl Lee of Clinton; daughters, Ethlyn of St. Louis, Mrs. R. E. (Ada) Searcy of Topeka, Kansas, Mrs. D. P. (Elsie) Cooper of Windsor and Mrs. Don (Nadene) Ward of Blairstown; 13 grandchildren, and two great granddaughters, one sister, Mrs. Thomas (Jennie) Clark, Clinton; brothers, Charley of Clinton, and Eugene and Rolla of Calhoun; other relatives and a host of friends. Mr. Jones, who loved life and lived it to the fullest, seldom met a stranger. Through his long illness he remained mentally alert and interested in world events and the varied activities of his devoted family. His sparkling wit, keen sense of humor and deep humility will be sadly missed by his wide circle of friends and loved ones. Relatives and friends who attended from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Miles, Jr., Carrollton; Col. and Mrs. Roy G. Johnston, Belton; Mr. and Mrs. Charles Keirsey, Butler; Eddie Limberg, Lexington; Mr. and Mrs. Ben Mangina, Grandview; George Richter, Lincoln; Mr. and Mrs. Paul Phipps, Ward Young, Holden; Mr. and Mrs. Harry Duvall, Alpha Ingle, Marguerite Kluttz, Mr. and Mrs. Frankie Rufenacht, Robert lee Burcham, Kansas City, MO; Mr. and Mrs. Amos York, Osceola; Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Hays, Garden City; Mr. and Mrs. Tom Snyder, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Rufenacht, Lowry City; Stanley Grady, Sedalia; Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Kenney, Appleton City; Keith Jones, Mrs. Perry A.

JORDAN, John Felix Judge
b: Jan 10 1863, near Roseland, Henry Co, MO
d: 1932, Calhoun, Henry Co, MO
bur:
Calhoun Cemetery, Tebo Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Judge John Felix Jordan died at his home in Calhoun, at 4:30 a.m. Monday, with heart trouble and complications. He had been in failing health since last September and unable to leave his house about six weeks previous to his death. During that time he told his loved ones that he knew his earthly stay would not be long and what he wished them to do. J. F. Jordan was born January 10, 1863, southwest of Roseland, the son of Wm. and Rebecca Jordan. His father was a native of Kentucky; his mother from Tennessee. These early settlers brought to Henry county the slaves and customs of the southland. His father died when he was but eight years old, and the burdens and responsibilities as the head of the household fell upon his young shoulders. Two years later, young John and his brother J. W., started to plow and put in a crop. He was eager for an education, although handicapped by the fact that he was his mother's chief support and that school terms were only four months a year and often the four months were shortened to two months for him on account of the home responsibilities. One wondered how he kept up with the other boys of his age, but he not only did so but took every prize offered in spelling, ciphering and other things taught in the schools at that time. The farm of 240 acres that belonged to his mother and father, was always thrifty, and showed that he loved the out-of-doors and the tending and tilling of the soil. June 4, 1893, he was united in marriage with Miss Mary L. Bradley, who is a sister of Dr. Bradley of Windsor. Their marriage has been one of happiness and devotion to each other, as they both loved their home and their only son, Ray, who is studying medicine and surgery, having completed Central College at Fayette, then received his B.S. degree in the University of Missouri, and spent a year in the University at Louisville, Kentucky, studying medicine. He has been in the state hospital in Nevada the past year and expects to return later to Louisville to get his degree. Mr. and Mrs. Jordan lived on the home place of his parents until thirteen years ago when they moved northwest of Calhoun where they would be nearer a high school for their son. This was their home until a year ago when they rented their farm and moved into Calhoun to the second house north of the overhead bridge where Mr. Jordan died. About this home are found evidences of the things that Judge Jordan loved - first his wife and son, then his well kept house, lawn and garden. He was converted a number of years ago and united with the Olivet Baptist Church where he taught in the Sunday Schools and acted as superintendent. After moving nearer Calhoun, he moved his membership to the Calhoun Baptist Church, where it was at the time of his death. He was elected as associate county judge in 1930 and had announced his candidacy for reelection, which perhaps would have been made with no opposition, for through his good judgment and knowledge of business, he was known by the Democrats and voters of Henry county to be dependable in every sense of the word. Since he became county judge, he had made many friends in Clinton, and often times when he was holding court here, he would stop at the Clinton Eye for a brief visit and with twinkling eyes would tell many experiences that had come into his life. The Eye remembers especially how much he enjoyed the radio that his son sent him last year as a gift, and he stated "no one needs to get out nights anymore as there is plenty of entertainment by your own fireside, when you have a good radio." The funeral of Judge Jordan was held at the Calhoun Baptist Church Tuesday afternoon. The flag on the courthouse was at half mast from the time he passed away until after the funeral. The courthouse was closed from 2 until 4 p.m. Tuesday during the funeral hour. The church was crowded with sorrowing friends, all not being able to get inside. Many were present from Clinton, Windsor, and over the county. There was a large floral offering. The Henry county offices at the courthouse sent a large wreath made of roses.

Clinton MO - Once more the reaper's scythe has been thrust into the harvest to garner the grain made ripe by the lapse of time, and a husband, father, neighbor and friend has responded to the call "Come up higher to meet the conditions of life and peace ordained of God who giveth as the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." Though many have fallen out of the ranks of the walks of man and few of their numbers are left. Yes, one by one these early pioneers of our country are passing the last milestone of life to receive their reward. These early settlers are entitled to a high and honorable place in the memory of their scions, for wherever met, they are the same noble self-sacrificing people, and Ferdinand Emmett Journey was no exception to the rule. born in St. Charles county, near St. Louis, Mo., December 7th, 1848, he lived in one of the cycles of time in this world's progress when the latent forces of nature were responding with the most fervent vividness to the inventive genius of man, occupying the space of time intervening between the primeval simplicity that characterized the meagre home comforts and surrounding of our hardy pioneers, and that of the luxurious comforts that now grace our firesides. His parents removed to the eastern part of Henry county when he was seven years of age, where he grew to manhood, and spent his entire life of more than 74 years witnessing the change of his county from a vast domain to a high state of cultivation. More than fifty-four years ago he chose as his companion, Jane Carleton, crowning each other as supreme, in deed and thought by acknowledging the others supremacy and their union the most splendid achievement, permitting love to illuminate the way, for in every true family there is a beautiful love storey; that is why the world is as good as it is, and a dream to which humanity may long to aspire. Seven children graced this union - W. A. and E. S. of Chilhowee, Mo.; Mrs. J. H. Gresham, of Albuquerque, New Mexico; Mrs. W. C. Jennings of Roseland, Mo.; Mrs. J. E. Poague of Santiago, Benton County, Mo., and Mrs. T. G. Twyman, of Grand Junction, Colorado, on the death of Mrs. C. F. Jennings, twenty years ago, her daughter Lucile, was taken into their home and since received a daughter's care and affection. His kind, friendly nature received the approbation of all whom it was his pleasure to meet. Remembering his Creator in the days of his youth, he identified himself with the Tebo Baptist church, and with only those short comings characteristics of fallible humanity, he lived a consistent Christian life to the day of death, which occurred at his late home in Clinton, Mo., April 25th, 1923, all children being present at his bedside. He leaves the companion and children, together with numerous relatives and friends to mourn their loss, "but not as those who die without hope, for blessed are the dead who die in the faith of the Lord." There was a brief service held at the family home after which his remains were taken to his beloved Mt. Olivet church where funeral services were conducted, after which he was laid to rest in Mt. Olivet cemetery, by sorrowing relatives and friends.
