Clinton MO - The shadows of the night have fallen, and Mrs. William Kimball peacefully sleeps, after her day of life. She went into the Valley of Oblivion Tuesday afternoon near 2 o'clock. For many days she had been an invalid, and Friday night suffered a stroke. Consciousness was hers until Monday, when she no longer sensed the presence of the loved ones who hovered over her bedside. Ella Garner was born July 3, 1863, in Cedar, Ia., and here happy days of childhood were spent, and her young womanhood, when she dreamed of the future. In 1884, she was married to William Kimball, and had she lived until New Year's day of the coming 1934, they would have celebrated their 50th year of wedded life. To Mr. and Mrs. Kimball, seven children were given. One son sleeps in Englewood. The others are Mrs. Ray Godwin, Fred, Earl, Forest, Will, all of Clinton, and the youngest daughter Miss Emily who has remained in the home and given the utmost care and devotion to her parents. In 1903, the Kimball family moved to a farm east of Clinton, from Iowa. Twenty-three years ago, they moved into town, and their home was been at Ming Court, in the south part of Clinton for thirteen years. Mrs. Kimball was a thoughtful, patient woman, thinking first of her husband and children, and looking after their needs, until physical disability made it impossible, but then giving them her motherly counsel. She like reading and flowers, and gave much thought to the Father above. For several years, the deceased had been a member of the Christian church here. She also belonged to the Knights and Ladies Security. In addition to her children who will miss her presence, Mrs. Kimball leaves the following beloved grandchildren: Frederick, Chester, Rosella, Frances, Lula Rose, of Clinton, and Shadie of Kansas City. Funeral services will be Thursday afternoon at the Christian Church. Burial will be in Englewood Cemetery by the side of her son.

Clinton MO - Death in the night, while she was sleeping, came to Mrs. R. S. Kimball at her home in Calhoun, some time between midnight and 4:00 a.m. Sunday, May 28, 1939. Mr. Kimball, rousing when the alarm went off at 4:00 a.m. as usual, called to his wife. When she did not move or answer, he pulled himself with difficulty out of his bed to hers and failing to awaken her, managed to get to the front door despite his badly crippled condition, and called a passing paper boy for help. Life was gone, and as doctors arrived to examine her it was realized she had gone into her last earthly sleep, the victim of a heart attack of which she had had several. Myrtle Emily Roberts was born May 15, 1878, at Perry, Ia., where she was reared and became a member of the Methodist Church, coming with her parents to Carthage, Mo., May 23, 1907. She was married to Richard Spalding Kimball, a merchant at Carthage, where they made their first home together. In 1910 Mr. and Mrs. Kimball moved to Muskogee, Okla., continuing n the same business until 1915 when they decided to come to Clinton to open a new store. Here they made many friends, were prosperous, taking an active part in business and social circles, and built an attractive, modern home at the corner of Franklin and Fifth Streets, which in 1936 they sold to Mr. and Mrs. Glen Arnold. Ill health having curtailed Mr. Kimball's activities she devoted more and more time to her husband, as paralysis had made speech and walking difficult for him. His alert mind was unimpaired however and with his devoted wife at his side he continued to operate his Clinton variety store on the east side of the square some years. Selling out in 1936 Mr. and Mrs. Kimball took an apartment over the Simes store, east side square, where they operated a ladies' dress shop until last fall when they decided to go to Calhoun, thinking life would be more quiet and simple in a community where they had many devoted friends. Opening a small variety store, with their housekeeping apartment in the rear, Mr. and Mrs. Kimball built a new life for themselves in Calhoun, and this splendid Henry County community gave back to them in warm friendliness and companionship, the good will felt for them by Mr. Kimball and his good wife. For this fine, Christian couple whose love for each other and their fellowmen had never dimmed, though sickness and disappointments had been theirs, happiness was found where they could continue in part their work, making their living where life was less hurried and where people could stop long enough to visit a bit together. So Calhoun gave a ministry of kindness to spirits as mild and considerate as the noblest of God's creatures. For many years Mrs. Kimball was active in the Eastern Star and a member of the White Shrine of Jerusalem. She and her husband belonged to the Clinton Franklin street Methodist Church, were regular in attendance and generous in gifts. While she had no children of her own she was most gracious and indulgent to young people. Much affection and many kindnesses were lavished on Mrs. Frederick Livingston, a daughter of a close friend, and it was while visiting at the Kimball home in Clinton that she met Mr. Livingston. Among the happiest occasions of the last year were those when she was a guest in the Fred Livingston home where little Ann Livingston, three years old, was a constant joy and diversion. Mrs. Kimball, generous and loyal, gave everything of herself that was possible to her husband and those she loved. She enjoyed business as thoroughly as does her husband, enjoying its stimulation and association. Possessed of many virtues and great talents, warm hearted and sincere, honest and good. Mrs. Kimball who loved much and unselfishly will reap abundantly in her life eternal. Mrs. Kimball is survived by her husband alone, who has one niece, Miss Edna Kimball, of Revere, Mass., who arrived Wednesday for the funeral, a nephew of Oakland, Calif., and one brother, John Kimball of Berkley, Calif. Funeral services were conducted at the Calhoun Methodist Church on Wednesday, and the body laid in the Calhoun Cemetery.

Clinton MO - Jacob L. Kimes, of the Quarles community, passed away Jan 9, 1942, at the Clinton General Hospital. Late Monday afternoon preceding his death, Mr. Kimes was engaged in his usual farm tasks, driving a pair of high spirited mules hitched to a wagon which he used to haul feed to his livestock. The mules became frightened in the feed lot and overturned the wagon. Mr. Kimes was hurled to the frozen ground where friends and neighbors found him shortly after the accident. Mr. Kimes was taken to his home and he seemed to rally briefly until a severe stroke plunged him again into unconsciousness. His family believed that a slight stroke had caused the accident in the lot. Mr. Kimes was brought as soon as possible to the Clinton General Hospital, but his condition was too grave to respond to treatment, and it was not long until the life thread broke. Thus ended the life of an energetic, ambitious and successful farmer who was also known as a faithful husband, an indulgent father, a loyal neighbor and kind friend, affectionately greeted by all as Jake Kimes. Mr. Kimes loved the farm in his own right. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Kimes, and was born and reared on a farm, eight miles northeast of Clinton. Here it was he took his bride, Miss Elizabeth Langford, February 25, 1903, to establish their home according to the pattern and high ideals of their highly respected and well known families. In a short time Mr. and Mrs. Kimes purchased near Quarles, a tract of land familiarly known as the Joe Land farm and here with their son and daughter pursued the art of farming and stock raising. Jacob L. Kimes is survived by his wife; his daughter, Mrs. Chester Brown of Bartlesville, OK, who had been at home since the Christmas holidays; and only son, Lindsey Kimes, who resides on the same farm; one brother, Alex Kimes, of Chilhowee; sisters, Mrs. Ed Sauerwein of Boyd, MT; Mrs. Martin Sauerwein of Ft Scott, KS; Mrs. Willis Cameron and Mrs. Henry Wolf and Miss Ida Kimes of Clinton. The body was laid to rest in Englewood under the direction of Wilkinson Funeral Service.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Jun 21 2005 - The angels lovingly ushered Ruth Kimzey through the gates of heaven on June 19, 2005, (at Golden Valley Hospital, Clinton). Ruth was born on September 1, 1913, the sixth of seven children born to Willis and Ella Mae Baldwin.

Clinton MO - The body of Frank King, who was killed in the U.S.S. Mississippi explosion off the California coast, was brought to Clinton Monday morning on the Flyer, accompanied by one of his shipmates. The funeral services were conducted Monday afternoon from the Christian church. There was a beautiful red, white and blue wreath sent by his shipmates of the U.S.S. Mississippi of the 6th division. The American Legion and Battery B both assisted with the military funeral. The four guns fired three shots around. Taps were sounded by Ernest Cashman. The pall bearers were all ex-Navy men as follows: Chas. Calvird Jr., Haysler A. Poague, George Kinyon, Ted Martin, Arnold Sigler, Wm. Scott. Frank Brandenburg King, known in Clinton as "Buster" was killed on the U.S.S. Mississippi Thursday afternoon, June 12th. Back fire from one of the large guns caused an explosion and he was suffocated from the powder smoke. The ship, which is the largest war ship, was on the ocean near San Pedro, Calif., and the accident happened when the soldiers were practicing. Frank had been in the Navy since Nov. 24, 1922, and would have been given a furlough on June 16th. He was second gunman, but had his promotion for first gunman. This made him gun trainer. Judge and Mrs. J. D. King had been to Liberty to a birthday celebration and were visiting their daughter, Mrs. Frank Anthony in Kansas City. Friday morning at 6 a.m., Judge King got the morning paper and found the name of his son in the list of those dead. At 9 a.m., in Clinton was received the official message. Deceased was 19 years old on the 5th of May, and was born on a farm south of Clinton. Besides his parents he is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. J. B. Bysor, Russell King, Jim Ed. King and Mrs. Albert Bratzler, all of Clinton, and Mrs. Frank Anthony of Kansas City. Buster was always a bright and lovable boy, popular in school with both teachers and classmates. He lead in athletics, was a member of the high school basket ball team, also of athletics at the Y.M.C.A. He enlisted in the Navy with John Tanner, Arlie Worman and Johnny Yeager. All four boys left and were in training camp together, but when assigned to ships Buster was separated from the other three, as his name was towards the first of the alphabet. The other boys were all assigned to the U.S.S. Oklahoma. When first separated he was a little homesick, but all of his letters have been filled with joy, hope and ambition, as from the first he was recognized by the officers to be a splendid young chap and his parents have had letters commending him from the officers, saying the Navy needed more like him. He had had four promotions. He was very proud of the ship to which he was assigned as it had excelled in everything. They were going to excel in their firing when the fatal accident happened, killing so many men. The last letter the parents got from Buster told about him being in a rowing contest that had been lasting for several days. His was the lightest crew and they won by seven boat lengths. The men of the Mississippi were known to hold all records. Buster belonged to the ship's basketball team and took part in every athletic contest. As a boy he made a confession of faith in Jesus at the Wade Johnson meeting and we are satisfied that he is now in the Eternal City. When Buster was but 16 they were building the large cement wheat tanks at the Larabee Mills. He went out and got a job. Dozens of men and boys quit because it was too hard. Not so with Buster, he just worked and hustled until within a few weeks he was made sub-foreman as the men in charge realized his executive ability as well as the thoroughness in which he did his every job. The whole community is bowed down with grief and all extend heartfelt sympathy to the grief stricken parents, brothers and sisters in this time when it is impossible for anyone to comfort and heal the wounded heart but the Heavenly Father. May He be near them and lighten their burden.

Clinton MO - James Benjamin King, 18 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. E. C. King, died Friday about 45 minutes after he was shot in the abdomen with a .22 rifle bullet while he and a friend, Bob Clark, were playing in the living room following dinner. James had an old pistol and Bob took down a rifle, hanging in the room, and pointed it at his friend. Both boys thought the guns unloaded, but the rifle was discharged in some way, the bullet striking James in the abdomen. Mrs. King was in another room across a small porch from the living room, and Jimmy walked to the door and said, "I've been shot," but she thought him jesting. He half fell to his knees and again said he had been shot, then turned and went before her back across the porch and into the living room where he fell across a bed. Mrs. King ran for help to the Ed Sivil home, and Bob Clark went across the road for Mrs. Rafe Feaster, both responding. When they arrived Jimmy asked for a pillow under his head. Dr. James O. Smith was called, but when he arrived, the young man was dying. Dr. S. B. Hughes, coroner, was also summoned, and ordered an inquest which was held that evening at Wilkinson's Funeral Home. The jury brought in the following verdict: "We, the members of the coroner's jury, duly impaneled and called to inquire as to the death of James Benjamin King, having viewed the body and heard the evidence, do declare: That the said James Benjamin King came to his death from gunshot wound, the gun being held by Bob Clark and we find that the death was purely accidental and without malice. (Signed) J. S. Barnett, foreman; Clay Adair, Jas. L. Elliston, Harry E. Smith, H. Harrelson and Charles H. Whitaker, Jr." Mrs. King testified at the inquest there was no enmity between the two boys, and Bob Clark declared he did not know the gun was loaded. The father was working on a WPA project in the northwest part of the county, and Arthur McNutt, who owns the place where the Kings live, accompanied by Jim Ed King, went after the father. James Benjamin was born March 20, 1920, in Clinton, and had moved with the family to their present home, about a mile south of the Lindstrom Hatchery, some three years ago. He helped at home, also did work for the neighbors. Just before noon, when Bob Clark had gone to visit him, the two went across the road to take Feaster's cows to water as their supply was low, and this was one of his chores to perform. Bob had stayed at Kings for dinner. Besides his parents, he is also survived by two brothers, Howard and Clarence, of Clinton; and sisters, Mrs. Lena Calleton and Mrs. Cora Halsey, both of Clinton, Mrs. Opal Humphrey of Osceola and Lula Belle, of the home. Funeral services were conducted Sunday at the Wilkinson Chapel. Burial at Fields Creek Cemetery, near where the King family has lived.

Clinton MO - Mrs. S. Finis King died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Walter H. Erwin, at Urich, Mo., last Thursday morning at 1:30 o'clock after an illness of six days. Mrs. King's maiden name was Mary A. Buxton and she was born in Iredell county, North Carolina, February 14th, 1844. At the age of seven years she came to Missouri and the greater part of her life until 1899 was spent in Johnson and Lafayette counties. October 17th, 1867, she was married to Rev. S. Finis King, a minister in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Mr. King held important offices in his church. In early life he served many country congregations when this meant long, hard rides, self sacrifice and absence from home. For a number of years he was pastor at Odessa, Mo., and left then to become secretary of the board of church erection with offices in Kansas City. When this office was consolidated with the board of Missouri and transferred to St. Louis, Mr. King, because of his familiarity with the work and his executive ability, was chosen as the secretary of the consolidated boards. Though enjoying this work he desired to get back to pastoral work and in 1893 became pastor of his church in Warrensburg, remaining there until 1899, when failing health compelled him to take a lighter work. He came to Urich in 1899 and served the Cumberland Presbyterian church there for two years, dying January 24th, 1902. During all these years Mrs. King's part in the work might be compared to the Biblical story of David and the Amalekites - "but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff; they shall part alike." It was she who kept the home fires burning and her loyalty did much in helping her husband to play the part which he did in his church. To Rev. and Mrs. King were born three children - Elizabeth, who married T. R. Taylor, cashier of the Bank of Odessa, Mo., died nine years ago; Dr. Robert M., assistant surgeon in the Vineyard Park Hospital, Kansas City; Ada, the wife of W. H. Erwin, cashier of the bank of Urich, Mo. During her twenty-one y ears of widowhood Mrs. King made her home with Mrs. Erwin, spending a portion of each year in the homes of her other daughter and son. In all three homes she was a much loved member and one of her chief joys was her seven grandchildren. When Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Robert King passed away the grandmother filled the mother's place in these broken homes as best she could. She was never so happy as when giving service and was always busy doing some kindness for family or friend. She became suddenly ill Friday afternoon, October 19th, at her daughter's home in Urich. The best medical and surgical skill and nursing were given, but it was soon realized that the journey's end was almost reached. When she fully realized that death was near, she expressed her appreciation of the devotion of her family and the kindness of physicians, nurses and friends. She had hoped that she might be spared to see her two youngest grandchildren grow up as she had watched the five older ones grow to manhood and womanhood. Knowing this could not be, she gave those dear to her assurance that all was well with her. Mrs. King became a Christian in early life and worked in the Cumberland Presbyterian church USA. At this time she saw fit to cast her lot with the Presbyterian church and was a loyal member of the denomination at Urich. A short funeral service was conducted at the Erwin home Friday morning, October 26th. Immediately following this the body was taken to Odessa for burial.

He came to this county in the winter of 1882 and always resided in the same vicinity, where he was a substantial farmer.

Clinton MO - Daniel L. (Lafe) Kinyon, prominent Henry county farmer, died Sunday, November 11, at his home three miles north of Clinton near Rest-a-while. About three years ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he partially recovered and was able to have a share in the farm duties. Tuesday before his death, however, he was stricken again and gradually grew weaker until his death came. Mr. Kinyon had resided in Henry county since he was 15 years old. He was born March 4th, 1867, in Washington county, Ill., and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Kinyon. He came with them to a farm near Quarles and completed his education at Comer school. In 1889 he and Miss Florence Gilbert were united in marriage and for several years they made their home near Huntingdale, later going to St. Clair county. They returned to Henry county and for about the past 15 years have lived on the farm north of Clinton where Mr. Kinyon died. Mr. Kinyon was a progressive farmer and his farm home an attractive, up-to-date place. When a young man, Mr. Kinyon was converted to the Christian Church, South at Huntingdale. In hiss more active days he was an enthusiastic worker in his church, but declining years made it difficult for him to take part in the services. His membership was transferred to the First M. E.

Three brothers and three sisters also survive: Joseph S. and Lee Kinyon, near Clinton; Elmer Kinyon of Kansas City; Mrs. Charles Howe of Jericho Springs; Mrs. H. H.

Clinton MO - Henry Edward Kinyon died at his home six miles northeast of Clinton, at 6:05 p.m. Tuesday. He had been ill many months, and about Thanksgiving time it was thought his stay on earth could not be prolonged, but he improved and was able to be up at times. The last few weeks his condition had become much worse, and he suffered intensely until death came to release him. Henry Kinyon was born August 30, 1858, at Okawville, Washington Co., Ill. He had been a resident of Henry County since 1881, coming here then with his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Daniel C. Kinyon. Mr. Kinyon was united in marriage to Mary Frances Grant, February 28, 1889. She survives with four sons and two daughters: George F. Kinyon of Lubbock, Texas; Thomas E. and William E. Kinyon, who live near the home farm. Paul A. Kinyon who resides in the home of his parents; Miss Nell I. Kinyon, teacher in the Kansas City schools, and Miss Jewel Kinyon, who teaches art at Birmingham, Ala. Two sons survive from Mr. Kinyon's first marriage. They are: Daniel L. Kinyon, Gothenburg, Nebraska; Henry Kinyon, who lives in Canada. Three grandchildren survive: Thomas Kinyon Jr.,northeast of Clinton, and Misses Aileen and Dorothy Lee Kinyon of Gothenburg, Nebraska; also four brothers J. S., D. L., and Lee Kinyon, north of Clinton; Elmer of Kansas City; three sisters, Mrs. Charles Howe, Jericho Springs, Mo.; Mrs. Herbert Kimes near Huntingdale, and Mrs. Ed Quillen of Garland. Mr. Kinyon was converted in his youth and united with the Baptist church. He gave himself wholeheartedly to the service of the Lord. For many years he was a deacon in the Quarles Baptist church, and fulfilled the scriptural rules as he was always fine and clean in his dealings with man and God. His life and the teachings of the church inspired his children. It was the custom for the family to sit together in the services which they attended regularly. He had been a member of the Clinton Baptist church since he transferred his letter here when his children were attending high school in Clinton. Mr. Kinyon attended school in Illinois before coming to Henry County, but his education never ceased, as he always found new lessons in each experience of life, whether in work or recreation. His attractive modern bungalow was built on a hill, a lovely location, where he could look out daily and view the panorama of nature in her beauty. This home site may well be compared to Henry Kinyon's lofty outlook on life, for always he had the noblest and best aspirations, reached high goals and could look down and enjoy his surroundings, with the knowledge that he had chosen well. The many things he did for his friends and neighbors were done unostentiously. He was known as one of Henry County's most substantial citizens. He was one of the stockholders of the Peoples National Bank of Clinton and was a thoughtful member of the Board. In 1932 he helped organize the Union State Bank and was a stockholder. Mrs. Kinyon's life was proof of the value of following old-fashioned honesty axioms in business. He universally was known among his business associates as a man of unimpeachable character, nor did he have one code of ethics for his private life and another for his business life. He was public-spirited, but he was also private-spirited. His nature was to avoid attracting attention. His associates and friends in town or country had for the quite Henry Kinyon an unequaled admiration. There was something solid about him. No man merited a higher rating for both integrity and ability. His life was the gospel of True Fraternity. In the passing of Mr. Kinyon, the entire community loses a time-tested friend, an influential citizen and most gracious gentleman. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Kinyon have followed in their path and are good citizens. Each one has made a splendid place for himself. Mr. Kinyon believed in education for them, and sent his children to high school and college. Mr. Kinyon also had a forward look for his neighborhood, and was instrumental in seeing that the roads in that township were hard surfaced. The funeral will be conducted at the home Thursday. Burial in Englewood.

Clinton MO - Joseph S. Kinyon, one of Henry county's most esteemed and beloved residents, died at his home, 10 miles north of Clinton, at 5:40 p.m. Friday, June 12, of heart disease and complications which resulted in pneumonia. His health began to decline several months ago, but he was not confined to his bed until about four days before his death. He slipped into unconsciousness Tuesday evening of last week, so his last days were quiet and peaceful. During his illness, friends and kinsmen gave wonderful assistance in his care. The great circle of friends that he had made during his lifetime were generous in lending their time and energy in his care as a last proof of their loving devotion to their friend, and his relatives did all that was possible. Joseph Samuel Kinyon, son of Daniel and Anna Kinyon, was born September 26, 1863, in Washington county, Ill. As a young man, he came with his parents and other members of their family to Henry county, where he lived the rest of his life. He had spent the past 33 years on the farm north of Clinton, where was centered his deepest interests and greatest ambitions. He did principally grain farming and some livestock raising, which commanded much of his interest and energy. Always a forward looking farmer, he tried to keep abreast of new methods of farming and was held in high esteem by his neighbors, who often consulted him on questions about their crops and stock. During the years, he had increased considerably his farm by additional purchases, made possible by a thrifty nature and a solid business sense. Mr. Kinyon was a man of utmost patience and persistence, likable, honest, always taking a prominent and responsible part in community affairs, in every way an example for others to follow. Margaret Elizabeth Bence and Joseph S. Kinyon were married August 14, 1889, and soon after his marriage he joined the Huntingdale Baptist Church. A few years later, he transferred his membership to Quarles Baptist Church, where he remained a devoted member until his death. For many years he served his church as a member of the Board of Deacons and was treasurer for three terms. He rarely missed a church service until his health became such that he was unable to go, and he had never missed homecoming at his church since these annual events were inaugurated. The Quarles homecoming Sunday had been anticipated by him. Surviving Mr. Kinyon are his widow and their only son, Henry H. Kinyon, Columbia, Mo.; two granddaughters, Misses Ruth and Mabel Kinyon, Columbia; two brothers and three sisters, L. L. Kinyon, Mesdames Charles Howe, H. H.
