Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, May 11 2007 - Deloris Irene Minnick Lindell was born March 16, 1934, in Talmage, Kansas. She passed from this life April 13, 2007, at the Research Medical Center, Kansas City, having suffered for several years from an apparent lung incurable disease. The daughter of Carl and Mabel Bennett Minnick, she grew up on the farm, truly a farm girl, who enjoyed every aspect of farm life. She raised horses and enjoyed riding them from the breaking to the leisurely trot. As most children on the farm or in the city, Deloris and her brother, Joe, were not without their mischievous moments, such as their frequent egg fights. The story is told that those fun fights came to an end when their parents spied the eggshells in the barnyard. The chickens had failed to clean up the mess as they usually had done and this last time did not eat all of the broken egg shells. At the age of 10, Deloris made her good confession and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord, being baptized on New Year's Eve, 1944, in the First Christian Church in Abilene, Kansas. It was fitting that she returned to the land of her beginning to be buried from that peaceful and meaning place of her youth. On August 19, 1968, following a previous marriage, Deloris married David Lindell, an agriculturist, and together they set out on a journey that included the raising of her two sons, Jon and Karl. Within the family, Karl remembers his mother as a loving and devoted teacher, reading the stories from the Bible and sharing fun activities with her boys, encouraging them to progress in the Boy Scout movement. She was proud of what they both had accomplished. Jon recently wrote a loving letter to his mother expressing how hard it is to put into words what her upbringing had meant to him attributing to her all that he has become. From all reports, Deloris and David accomplished their mission in many ways. Deloris developed an interest in music. She played a trombone in the band and became an accomplished pianist. She often provided the accompaniment at the church and in the community, sharing her talent in nursing homes and elsewhere whenever invited. For the past 25 or more years she taught piano to many people. One of her more mature students shared the time a youngster challenged her as to why "that old man" did not have to play in the recitals. She received her higher education by earning a certificate in Christian Education from the Old Manhattan Bible College. When her sons were in elementary school she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Kansas State University. She enjoyed teaching and taught several levels in the church school. She was the popular teacher of the adult Open Door Class where she was considered by her students as a Bible Scholar who lived her faith through her active life in the Christian Church. In her congregation, she served in many positions of leadership, including working with youth, serving as a deacon and later an elder, a spiritual leader in the church. She served as the chairperson of such committees as the pastoral advisory committee, the church and society committee, the evangelism team and the Christian Women's Fellowship. At one time she was on the Search Committee charged with the responsibility to find a new minister and pastor. During a difficult period in the life of her congregation she was called upon to serve as chair of the Official Board. Her leadership was recognized beyond her own congregation when she encouraged the interdenominational Festival of Sharing, a statewide mission providing for people in need in Missouri and the world. Within the community she was involved with the Wild Flower Society, Henry County Historical Society and Museum and with the Henrietta Homemakers, with whom she held classes in various homemaking skills. She was an artist, a painter who shared her love of the bible through her paintings, inscribing them with words from the Scriptures. She was a quilter and enjoyed the ability to sew and make things with her hands. She was a gardener who shared with neighbors her prize-winning canned vegetables and fruits. Deloris loved her church and community and served them well as a musician, teacher, leader and friend. She will be sorely missed. Deloris was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, David of the home; two sons, Karl Paxton of Lakeland, Colorado and Jon Paxton of Anchorage, Alaska; one brother, Joe Minnick and wife, Helen of Abilene, Kansas; sister-in-law, Frieda Hall of Wills Point, Texas; three grandchildren, Michael Paxton and wife, Stephanie, Matthew Paxton and Rebecca Paxton and four nieces and nephews, Kristine Sommers, Dan Minnick, Sharon Jones and Stephen Paxton.

Clinton Missouri, Feb 20 1903 - Friday, Feb. 12, 1904, at 2:15 p.m., after one week's illness with pneumonia, Mrs. J. F. Lindley passed into the sleep of death. She was the cherished wife of J. F. Lindley of the firm of Lindley & Shackelford. She was one of those rare home women whose presence had to be sought to find the source of radiated strength, gentleness and Christian fortitude. She lived through the loved ones placed in her keeping for the Master and made duty her highest aim and pleasure. Mary Irene Meekin was born in New Albany, Indiana April 23, 1840 and was the daughter of Capt. Chas. H. Meekin, owner and captain of several of those fine old-time New Orleans steamboats that plied the Mississippi until the breaking out of the war. A painting over the mantel in the sitting room shows one of them, the Baltic, in the lead with a race with another steamer. When the war broke out, he had command of one of the boats for the government in the Marine brigade in the Ohio and Mississippi. Mrs. Lindley has one brother and two sisters still residing in New Albany. She married J.F. Lindley there November 3, 1859 and lived there until September 1870, when they moved to Evansville, Indiana where Mr. Lindley conducted one of the leading mercantile establishments. November 29, 1894, Thanksgiving Day, the family arrived in Clinton, since which they had made their home and interests in Clinton, cherished by all for all their good qualities. The children are: Rebecca Irene, Martie E., Mrs. H. W. Shackelford and one son, James F. Lindley, who lives in Indianapolis, Ind. but who arrived in time to bid good-bye before the Sweet Chariot arrived that bore Mother to her home on high. James F., Jr. has two sons, Stacy Bradford Lindley, aged 20, who attends school at Purdue University, and Hiram Reed Lindley, aged 18, who arrived in time for their grandmother's funeral. The three other grandchildren are the children of W. H. Shackelford - Nora Irene, Mary Marthy and Wm. H. Jr. Little Billie Shackelford, as he is called in Clinton, clung close to Grandpa and whispered "That he prayed to God every night to make Grandma well but he guessed it was best or He wouldn't have taken her."

Judge Lindsay Found Dead - Former Henry Countain's Heart Fails At Home In Jefferson City - Judge James D. Lindsay was found dead on the sleeping porch of his home in Jefferson City, Monday morning about nine o'clock by his wife. He ad awakened her about 6 a.m., saying his arm hurt. She applied a hot water bottle, replenishing it several times and went downstairs for a few minutes to give the maid instructions. Returning she found him dead. He had been suffering with hardening of the arteries for some time and the physician called said nothing could have been done. Judge Lindsay was born November 7, 1857, north of Clinton, on the farm owned by his father and now known as the Taylor Lindsay place. He attended the public school, then came to Clinton and attended a private school conducted by C. C. Dickinson. He went to Central College at Fayette and graduated with a Master's Degree in 1880. He came to Clinton and made his home with the late Judge Parks and read law in the office of Judge F. E. Savage. He was admitted to the bar in 1882 and moved to Windsor, where he was associated in the law office with James Allen. He lived in Windsor until 1891, when he moved to Clinton and opened a law office. He was elected as prosecuting attorney of Henry county in 1894 and reelected in 1896. He was elected as probate judge of the county in 1898 and reelected in 1902. In 1908, he was elected as representative from Henry county to the 45th General Assembly in Missouri. After these offices expired, he practiced law in Clinton until 1916, when he was appointed as assistant attorney for the Missouri Public Service Commission. Judge Lindsay was appointed commissioner for the Supreme Court in January 1923, to fill the unexpired term of Judge William T. Ragland. He was appointed in April 1923, for four years and again reappointed for a term of four years, to expire April 13, 1931. Judge Lindsay was one of three commissioners in division No. 1 of the supreme court. A supreme court commissioner is equal in rank to a justice, with the exception that commissioners do not vote on opinions of the court. The court en banc will appoint a commissioner to succeed him. Little Jim Lindsay was born and raised in the big out-of-doors on the farm of his parents, north of Clinton. His mother was a school teacher, who encouraged her children to study the best things in life. There were many hardships when Jim was a lad, as his father served in the Confederate army. Jim was the oldest child and his mother's helper. There was much to be done, including the cutting of the firewood, but the faithful lad would tug the big sticks up to the house and hack the wood until it would come in two, ready for the fire. His small hands and tiny back made it almost impossible. It was then that he showed the beginning of a useful career, determined to always do his best, never failing to the very end. In the old Lindsay home, there were good books and his mother guided his reading. His sister recalls seeing him many times, lying in the grass, studying history, biography and other things useful, which aided his development. His brain became the storehouse of information, which prepared him for the high position he later held in the supreme court of Missouri. It is said that his opinions were seldom, if ever, reversed, as he had an analytical mind to think things through. He was quiet, dignified, almost reserved, but made friends easily on account of his generous nature. He was an ardent Democrat, ever true to his party. He was held in equal respect by the Republicans and his friends were amazed to see him reappointed under a Republican governor. His friends afterward heard the Governor say, that Judge Lindsay's dignity and knowledge impressed him so that he made the appointment, although Judge Lindsay had said very little when appearing before him. Reading was always his favorite pastime and he read and reread the works of Hawthorne, Shakespeare and Ruskin, and other classics, stocking his mind with the best literature. For a number of years, he was in poor health, but determined to get well, walked from six to ten miles a day to give him the necessary exercise and maintained a diet of raw food for many months until his health was restored. He kept up his exercise and out-of-door living, so few people realized that he was a man of 73 years of age, as he was always erect in posture an clear of eye. When a boy, he became an intimate friend of the late Peyton A. Parks and they were ever like brothers, counseling together, not only on law questions, but on all questions that concerned their life and those with whom they came in contact. The death of Mr. Parks was one of the great sorrows of his life. He was held in the highest esteem among the members of the bar, who knew him to be a worker in detail, always exact, honest and honorable. In his law practice, he always refused what he considered an unjust case. While attending the Central College at Fayette, he was converted and united with the M. E. Church, South and held membership in the Clinton church for many years. He had a fine bass voice and read music with ease, singing in the choir of the M. E. Church, South, of Jefferson City. He was united in marriage with Miss Anna Livingston, December 16, 1884. He was devoted to his wife and two daughters, Mrs. Harry C. Wilson, of St. Louis, and Mrs. Burnett Goss, of Tulsa, Okla. Their home life in Clinton was very beautiful. He built the attractive house now occupied by his niece, Mrs. Harry Gilbert, her husband and family, on East Jefferson street, where he lived until he and his wife went to Jefferson City on official business. He always maintained his legal residence in Clinton and returned for each primary and election to vote. The primary this August was the first time he ever voted with an absentee ballot. He loved this home on East Jefferson street and refused to sell it numbers of times, saying that some day he was coming back to live, so the funeral will be held there as this was the place he loved better than any other place in the world. Judge Lindsay made friends of people in every station of life. The old negro woman who cooked for his family when his children were small, and who now lives in Clinton, when she heard of his death, sobbed silently and said: "Mr. Lindsay sho' was a good man. I never saw him mad in my life. He was so fine in his home, always good to his wife and chilluns." After all, the true index of a man's life is found in his home and you can really get the key from an old negro servant who knows her white folks. Besides his wife and two daughters, he leaves four grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. S. J. Lane, on North Third street. This sister is the only remaining member of the family. He was a good brother, never forgetting her, always remembering to do the things she needed. His daughter, Mrs. Wilson, was touring Wisconsin with her husband and they were unable to reach her until Tuesday. She wired they would drive to Chicago, then come by plane to Jefferson City. The funeral will be conducted Thursday morning, August 21, at his late home in Jefferson City. His body will then be brought to Clinton and funeral held Thursday at 3 p.m. at his late home on East Jefferson street, now occupied by his niece, Mrs. Harry Gilbert, and husband. Burial in Englewood. Mr. and Mrs. Will Livingston, of Clinton; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Livingston, Mrs. Clem Roberts and son, John of Windsor, went to Jefferson City to be of any assistance possible. Mr. and Mrs. Burnett Goss and two daughters, of Tulsa, Okla., also arrived there Tuesday.

Taylor Lindsay, one of the most prominent citizens of Henry county, was found dead by the side of his horse about a mile and a half from his home Monday morning about 10 a.m., by Wren Smith, one of the employees of the farm. He had accompanied this young man that morning to "cut out" some hogs for shipment. Young Smith insisted on helping Mr. Lindsay get the hogs in. Young Smith said he had not been away but a few minutes when he came back and found Mr. Lindsay on his side dead, the hogs already put thru the gate, the horse's bridle hanging down and the stick still in Mr. Lindsay's hand. He had evidently been overcome from the heat, as it was extremely hot that morning and it looked as if when he had dismounted he had started to the shade tree, but had fallen before reaching it, a heart attack causing his death possibly instantly. Dan, his saddle horse, was standing, keeping guard when Mr. Lindsay was found. Reuben Taylor Lindsay was born November 2nd, 1861, at the home farm where he was reared and lived until Monday, Sept. 5, 1927, when he went into eternity. This farm was settled, entered and bought by his father, R. T. Lindsay, Sr., direct from the United States Government, he being the second settler in Fields Creek township. The late Nathan fields was the first settler. The Lindsay family was among the oldest settlers of this county, coming here from their home in North Carolina in covered wagons, as it was before the day of other transportation. They were Democrats of the old South, slave holders and people of wealth but always putting honor and honest first. fortunate, indeed, it was for Henry county, when they decided to locate here. Young Taylor Lindsay underwent the hardships of the war period, as he was born the first year, when his father was fighting for the cause he loved in the Southland, while his young wife and three small children were here with the slaves. She was a wise woman and taught her children to be quiet and uncommunicative with the many strangers who came to their home during this period of strife. Taylor learned many sides of life. Coming from the best of parentage, naturally early in life he learned the highest principles from which nothing swerved him in later years. His father was a leader of community affairs, directing the affairs of the church, his home always being the abiding place for the ministers as they came. Young Taylor was sent to Clinton Academy, later to Central College at Fayette. While in college he was converted and united with the M. E. Church South, later moving his membership to the Huntingdale church, where he remained a faithful member until that church disbanded and he placed his membership in the Franklin M. E. Church, of Clinton, during the pastoriate of Dr. Wesley Smith. Mr. Lindsay was united in marriage June 19, 1889, to Miss Sallie Royston. She survives with their only daughter, Ruby, now Mrs. Jas. S. Spangler. There is one granddaughter and three grandsons. Mr. Lindsay leaves one brother, Judge Jas. D. Lindsay, of Jefferson City, and one sister, Mrs. Sallie J. Lane, of Clinton. It can be truly said that Mr. Lindsay never had an enemy. He was a man of few words, but with a ready, friendly smile for all. His word was as good as his bond, and he had the utmost faith in his fellow man. He had always been one of the largest cattle feeders in the county and bought corn and feed from far and near. Many a time when a family was in need, had he paid for a corn crop yet unplanted in order to make it possible for the man, who through sickness or other misfortune needed the money. Seldom was this trust violated, for they loved Taylor Lindsay. He had sound business judgment and looked at the world unprejudiced, as his own life was clean. As a result of this his friends and even chance acquaintances came to him for advice not only on finance, but also in regard to other important matters pertaining to their lives. He never violated their confidence, and gave to them his best judgment, which they usually followed. His courtesy was unfailing on all occasions. He nearly always assisted the boys on the farm driving the cattle and hogs to market, and was always most appreciative of everything they did, also of any passerby whom they met on the road, who would assist in any way, he never failed to express his thanks. These little things are what make the perfect gentleman, of which there are so few. He inherited wealth, which he considered a trust, and added to it as the years went by until now his farm contains over 2,000 acres with one of the most attractive modern houses in the county. A portion of this is a part of the house built by his late father. He worked early and late, seeing to every detail of the big estate. Nothing was left unnoticed by him. He had known how to do everything on the place and could usually be seen out helping the boys in some way. The hottest sun in mid-summer and the coldest blizzard in winter found him ever watchful and working to see that everything alive on the place was comfortable. He was loved, not only by his employees, but by the domestic animals on the farm. The grief of his faithful saddle horse Dan, who is 17 years old, is pathetic, as Wednesday morning found Dan back at the spot where they found his master dead. Dan had always been devoted to Mr. Lindsay, following him about like a dog and seemed to intuitively know always what Mr. Lindsay wanted to do in the cattle driving. Mr. Lindsay has left a heritage of worldly goods to his loved ones, which is surpassed by the heritage of his good name and the example of his life. Every life that has come in contact with him was been made better and sweeter. He was generous always to the needy and poor. A load of coal, an order of groceries or other things found their way to the needy, with never a word said, as from whence they came. He was a real steward of the Lord. For not only to individuals, but to his church, other churches, the Y. M. C. A., and to other worthy organizations his subscription went regularly. No worthy cause or a person in need was refused. Mr. Lindsay had been assisted in every good work by his beloved wife, on whom his death comes as a crushing blow. She is also beloved by all who know her far and near as she is generous in thought and deed always. The writer has written many obituaries but never of a life of a man so filled with good deeds and so nearly coming to the Christian standards as Mr. Lindsay. The entire community mourns with those nearest him because of his death, but all are better for him having lived. The funeral services were conducted at his late home six miles north of Clinton by Rev. Selah, Tuesday afternoon. Interment in Englewood.

He went to the hospital the Monday before his death, hoping to be relieved of the intense pain he suffered. Conscious to the last, he found courage in the presence of his wife, brothers and sister, who had remained near him in all his illness for it was truly characteristic of them as a family that they were "together in all things, even to the end." Bert Carl Lindstrom, third child of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Lindstrom of East Clinton Street, was born June 20, 1898, in Clinton. He was baptized in the Lutheran Church as a child and was educated in the Clinton grade and high schools, a likable, kindly dispositioned boy, who in his youth gave promise of the genial, generous man he became. July 3, 1922, Miss Elizabeth Schiebel of Osceola became his wife and two daughters were born to them, Mary Louise, who is a senior in the high school and Ellen Jean, in the fourth grade at Washington School. Together they enjoyed work and play, taking trips frequently, cultivated mutual interests and found real happiness within their family group and with others of their relatives. Second to being an ideal father, son and husband, Mr. Lindstrom was a fine neighbor, an interested school patron, member of the Elks and W.O.W. and all community enterprises. When the hot lunch season was on in the public schools, he saw that a sufficient quantity of eggs were supplied for Washington grade children and often brought them to the school himself. Through his daughters, all school enterprises were supported and they tangibly felt his interest. The loss of a good man is always deeply felt, not only by his own, but his community—and such was Bert Lindstrom. His business ability was augmented by the congeniality of his work and the affable cooperation between himself, his two brothers, Elmer, founder of the hatcheries, Wilbur, and their one sister, Mrs. J. Clinton Reid, of Kansas City, the four of whom hold equal interests in the hatcheries that carry their name. Theirs was an accord of feeling not often seen. Surviving Mr. Lindstrom are his widow, their two daughters; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Lindstrom of Swedish ancestry; one sister, Mrs. J. C. Reid, of Kansas City, and two brothers, Elmer A. and Wilbur, of Clinton. Funeral services were conducted Monday at the Spore & Son Funeral Home, and the body was laid to rest in Englewood.

No community has ever been so stirred over the death of an infant, as the death of Mary Helen. The sympathy of their many friends go out to the bereaved parents.

Mt. Zion Merchant Passes - Gaylord Lionberger Succumbs to Acute Appendicitis Saturday - Gaylord R. Lionberger died Saturday afternoon in the St. Luke's hospital in Kansas City. He was taken suddenly ill the previous Monday with acute appendicitis, and was rushed during the night to Kansas City to the hospital, where an emergency operation was performed the next morning. Although his condition was critical, it was thought he was getting along all right until a short time before his death, when he took a sudden turn for the worse, and passed into Eternity. Gaylord Lionberger was a ray of sunshine to all about him, helpfulness being his creed, as it was to him that everybody turned in times of need. Several years ago, he purchased the Nichols & Son general mercantile store at Mt. Zion, and had been a very successful merchant. His store became the meeting place for the whole countryside. He ever found time to do the errands for his neighbors, no matter how busy he might be on his trips to town. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. R. Lionberger, lived near Mound Springs. The other children had moved farther away, and Gaylord endeavored to make up to his parents for their absence, visiting them often, doing everything possible for them, brightening their home with his smile, and merry jests. He was devoted to his wife and two small daughters, and did many things to promote their happiness. He bought a pony, "Barney Google" to carry them to school each day and July 4th, brought the pony and cart to Clinton in a truck, so that the girls could participate in the American Legion celebration and parade. Nothing was too much trouble to do for them. Many will remember the pony and merry-go-round he had at the Farmer's picnic several years ago, where all the children flocked about him, lured by his happy smile and banter, making it a place of joy, for he had that quality which attracted all children, and made them happy. Gaylord was born March 7, 1898, which made him thirty-three years of age at the time of his demise. March 30, 1921, he was married to Miss Mattie Thrush, and to them were given two girls, Madeline June, age 8, and Bonny Lee, age 6. Besides these, he leaves his parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. R. Lionberger, of Mound Springs, and four brothers and two sisters, who are: Ralph T., Blairstown; Edwin, Omaha, Nebr.; Otis D., Beaumont, Tex.; Harry W., Clinton; Mrs. Carrie McCown, Coal; Mrs. Nellie Randel, Ponca City, Okla. The funeral was conducted at Mt. Zion Baptist church, where he was a regular attendant, Monday afternoon. Although he had requested that his funeral be short, there were so many people there that it took nearly an hour for them to pass for the last look at at the young man who had been such an important part of the community life at Mount Zion. They could hardly believe that he would never speak again, as his illness and death had come so suddenly. His body was brought to Englewood and laid to rest. His parents and all of his brothers and sisters were present for the funeral.

Clinton MO - The gentle spirit of Mary Ellen Lippincott took flight from mortal scenes on Saturday, October 9, 1982. Mary Ellen Ragland, daughter of Thomas and Alice Virginia Beazley Ragland, was born January 23, 1882 in Clinton, Mo. at 306 East Jefferson Street. As a young girl, she lived with her aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. John L. Woolfolk, and as a companion to their only daughter, Mary, who was a little her senior. While living in Clinton as a young girl, she was a member of the Baptist Church, where she taught a Sunday School class as she grew older. Her entire schooling was at Baird College on South Second Street, where she was an active, blythe and spirited student. The Woolfolk family moved to Kansas City the year she would have graduated, so she did not finish at Baird, but was perhaps its oldest student in point of years in attendance, as well as longevity. In Kansas City, she met Benjamin Harris Lippincott and in 1906 they were united in marriage at the home of her aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Woolfolk, at the southwest corner of Armour Boulevard and Troost Avenue. They made their first home in Chicago, where one daughter, Jean, was born to their union. In 1914, they returned to Kansas City, where Mrs. Lippincott lived until 1967 when she came to make her home with her daughter and son-in-law in Clinton. Mrs. Lippincott had been a patient at Chastain's Nursing Home for the past five years, where she readily adjusted to its quiet life and where her daughter, Mrs. Henry F. Poague, visited her frequently. Friends who often saw her found her content, happy, smiling and adaptable, radiating good cheer, for she was thoroughly kind, never thinking ill of anyone. She was a most modest person, loved fun and laughter, and her gratitude for the smallest attention shown her brought out the best in others. Her fond and generous disposition elicted kindness from all who knew her, and her going is a void. Funeral services were conducted at the Consalus Chapel of Clinton on Monday, October 11. Burial was in Englewood Cemetery.
