Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Dec 24 2007 - Kathleen White Miles, 80, publisher of The Clinton Daily Democrat, died Saturday, Dec. 22, 2007, at her home in Clinton, MO. She had been under the care of Twin lakes Hospice for the past several weeks. Mrs. Miles had been publisher of The Democrat since 1986 having succeeded her father and mother who also held the position as publisher from April 1, 1950, when the paper was purchased from the late Charles Whittaker family. Her daily Bits & Pieces column was probably the most popular feature In the newspaper. Funeral services will be held Thursday, Dec. 27, at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Clinton, MO. Burial service will follow at Englewood Cemetery. Kathleen Neill White, daughter of Mahlon Neill and Kathleen Kelly White, was born May 30, 1927, at the home of her maternal grandparents, John Joseph and Ellen Ritteau Kelly, in Glenaire, near Liberty. When she was ten days old, she and her mother were taken to The Benton County Enterprise office and adjacent family home in Warsaw and she spent most of her life in newspaper offices. She was the first grandchild for Edwin Mahlon and Lydia Neill White and a great-granddaughter of Thomas Benton and Lois Alice Walker White, Thomas Benton White founded The Benton County Enterprise In 1879. She was a descendant of a continuous long line of newspaper publishers to the 1820s in Maryland and Pennsylvania and printers back to the 1740s. "K.N." White learned to read before she was five years old, reading the Kansas City Star each morning and classical books from family members' collections. She also sat in The Benton County Enterprise front office desks reading the "exchange papers" from other Missouri towns. Her mother purchased many good books for her, including Richard Halliburton's travel books on ancient historical sites. She attended grade and high school on "the schoolhouse hill" in Warsaw and, with her two close friends, Phronsie Estes and Wilma Thomas, was named one of three valedictorians at the Warsaw High School Class of 1944 graduation ceremony. Her grandparents, E.M. and Lydia White, spent much time with her when she was small, usually taking her In the car with them wherever they went locally. They were staunch Democrats and raised her accordingly. She attended William Jewell College In Liberty, where her parents had graduated, for two years and was a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, then transferred to the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri in Columbia, receiving her degree In 1948. While a journalism major she also had a major in Spanish, a language she loved and once spoke fluently. Having enough hours to graduate In January of 1948, she accepted a job in St. Louis with Bemis Brothers Bag Company as assistant editor of Bemistory, the company magazine, and visited a number of Bemis plants around the country. She took her first airplane trip on one of these visits to Houston, TX. In St. Louis she made her home in an apartment at 4515 Maryland Avenue with Jane Rozier of Ste. Genevieve. It was a few blocks from the St. Louis Cathedral and, in the opposite direction, the then well-known Chase and Park Plaza hotels on Kings' Highway. In 1949 she married Daniel Black Miles of Marshall, who had served In the U.S. Army as a Sergeant in Public Relations at Fort Lewis, Washington, with her father, TSgt. Mahlon N. White. Also a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, Dan Miles was state editor of the Bloomington, IL, Pantagraph at the time of their marriage on Nov. 19, 1949, at St. Ann's Catholic Church In Warsaw. Adlai Stevenson, later a Democratic presidential candidate, was one of the owners of the Bloomington Pantagraph and Dan Miles made trips around Illinois with him at this time. She spent nearly her entire life In a newspaper office and edited The Benton County Enterprise for several years In the 1950s when her father was publisher and working on the family-owned Clinton Daily Democrat and she was also a reporter for The Clinton Daily Democrat In the 1950s. Mrs. Miles was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention In 1956, held in Chicago that year. The family moved to Chevy Chase, Maryland, In 1960, when her husband was named administrative assistant to U.S. Senator Edward V. Long. Mrs. Miles sometimes recalled standing In the snow to watch John Fitzgerald Kennedy take his oath of office and standing in about the same spot to see the horse-drawn caisson bringing his body to the Capitol and carried up the Capitol steps. She enjoyed attending two presidential inaugural balls and invited a group of friends from Missouri to come for the second one, which they did. Mrs. Miles wrote editorials and news for the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Tribune while the family resided in Maryland and was a speech "ghostwriter" for several federal-level elected officeholders. The family returned to Clinton In 1968 where her husband resumed his editorship of The Clinton Daily Democrat. Mrs. Miles and her mother wrote and published a number of books In the 1970s and 1980s, Including a three-volume 3,000 page hard bound History of Benton County, Missouri. Mrs. Miles was the author of a number of books, including "Bitter Ground", a history of the Civil War In Henry, Benton and St. Clair counties, "Henry County People In World War II" and a large number of smaller soft bound books, Including the highly-regarded "Hog Lot Cookbook". She and her mother also operated The Printery and produced reprints of many Missouri county histories from the 1880s. Her husband, Daniel B. Miles Sr., was elected to two four-year terms as Mayor of Clinton In the 1980s and died in December 1986 while serving his second term. Before health considerations became an issue, Mrs. Miles faithfully wrote her column "Bits & Pieces" five days a week throughout the publishing year, from 1980 following the death of her father to Dec. 14, 2007, amidst a sometimes tumultuous newsroom under intense pressure with deadlines looming. She also covered the Clinton City Council for many years and the Clinton School Board and occasional community gatherings concerning topics where the "battle lines" were clearly drawn on one issue or another. Mrs. Miles was a superb writer who had mastered the journalistic art of utilizing semantics in writing a seemingly innocuous series of paragraphs about an Issue which, upon first glance, seemed informative and fair enough, but at a second glance and some brief thought caused the reader to realize a completely different message was being delivered - sometimes in a strong manner. As a consequence many longtime readers of her work became adept at carefully reading "between the lines" of her columns and stories and gaining an idea of "what was really going on". And, perhaps, a recommendation as to "what needs to be done". Mrs. Miles was intensely interested in people from all walks of life and was always willing to try to lend a helping hand to everyone. Memberships for Mrs. Miles over the years included the Daughters of the America Revolution, Clinton Study Club, Henry County Library Board, Missouri Press Association, Benton County Democratic Committee, Henry County Historical Society and Benton County Historical Society. Mrs. Miles was preceded in death by her husband Daniel B. Miles Sr., and one grandson Daniel B. Miles III. Also, a brother Mahlon K. "Jab" White, Publisher of The Benton County Enterprise, and a sister Lydia Alice White, both of Warsaw. She is survived by her sister Jane White Brown, Kansas City; five children and their spouses: Dan and Kathy Miles, Clinton; Ellen and Roger Taylor, Lawrence, KS; Mahlon White Miles, Clinton; Janie Miles-Smith and Paul Smith, Kansas City; and Frank Weir Miles III of the home. Also, 11 grandchildren: Katie Miles, Kansas City; Emily Kazmaier, Liberty; Tom Miles, Kansas City; Lydia Diebolt, Baldwin City, KS; Rebecca Hever, Piano, TX: Katrina Jurdan, Peculiar; Justin Jurdan, Peculiar; Elizabeth Huenefeldt, Lafayette, IN; Neill Smith, Kansas City; Ariel Smith, Kansas City: Patrick Miles, Clinton.

Funeral services were conducted at her home in Montrose Sunday, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Bear Creek cemetery. The bereaved family has the sympathy of the entire community. Deceased started teaching at the age of 16 and attended school and taught for 47 years. She never stopped acquiring knowledge, and even after she quit teaching took extension courses from the University. She was active in the Republican party of Henry County, also in temperance work, fighting liquor always. She was a forceful woman with positive ideas. If you once met her, she could not be forgotten. She had a keen sense of humor, a quick, active mind, which made her delightful company.

She knew much of life and its problems, was ever generous to a cause she loved and those dear to her, but frugal in her own living. By perseverance and hard work she had acquired comfortable competence seldom attained by a man.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Feb 13 2008 - Gaynel L. Mills, 75, Calhoun, died suddenly on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2008, at her home. Born July 9, 1932, in Columbia, she was the oldest daughter of the late Si and Bennie (Scrogham) Goodrich of Calhoun. Gaynel, like her father, children and two grandchildren, graduated from Calhoun High School and was very proud to have five-family generations attend and graduate from the same school. She was united in marriage in 1950 to Charles E. Pinkston, later divorcing. To this union five children were born. She later married Tony Mills with the marriage ending in divorce. Gaynel's life was her family. Get-togethers at holidays and summer barbecues were her favorites. She is survived by her children, Toni (Kenny) Vickers, David Pinkston, Jamie (Rita) Pinkston, Debbie (Floyd) Joy, all of Calhoun, and Judy (Tony) Dodge, Paola, Kansas. In addition are grandchildren Eric Pinkston, Chris Pinkston, Jennifer Smith, Jeremy Joy, Jonathan Joy, Stephanie Williams, Michelle Macke and Katie Dodge.

Gaynel was employed by Golden Valley Memorial Hospital a few months after its opening and retired in 1994. Her career with the hospital began as a nursing assistant and ended in the purchasing department. She saw many changes through her years of employment, but valued most of the friendships she had made over these years, both with her coworkers and the patients she helped. Following her retirement, she was a hospital auxiliary volunteer for a short time, but decided she needed to completely retire from the medical field. She was so very proud that her mother had volunteered as both a "grey lady" and an auxilian for many, many years until her health no longer allowed. An avid reader, Gaynel enjoyed trading books with her friends, Lou and Nancy. The reading circle also included her daughters. Gardening, spending time with "the kids" and visiting with friends and neighbors were a few of her life's passions. For several years she enjoyed helping on the Calhoun Colt Show Committee. Surviving are siblings Patricia (Bob) Randolph, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Joe (Marty) Goodrich, Mt. Pleasant, Texas, and Dan (Laverne) Goodrich of Adrian. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother Bill Goodrich, and grandson Anthony Pinkston, both of Clinton. Gaynel's wishes were to be cremated.

MILTON, G. W. Dr.
b: abt 1844, McDonough Co, IL
d: Jan 18 1905, Denver, Denver Co, CO

Clinton Missouri, Jan 28 1905 - Dr. S. A. Milton's brother, Dr. G. W. Milton of Denver, who died in that city January 18, 1905, was next to the eldest of the six Milton brothers, all of whom at one time resided in Clinton. Born in McDonough County, Illinois, but was reared and educated in Plymouth and adjoining county. From a small boy, he had a strong mechanical turn of mind and would construct kits, sleds and self-propelling wagons. When the war came up, he was anxious to join the army and did so in August 1862 at the age of 18. He assisted in getting together a large crowd of his old friends and went to Chicago and joined the 72nd Illinois. He was through Kentucky and Tennessee, going with General Grant's army to the siege of Vicksburg. After Vicksburg was captured, he was thrown with Captain D. S. Duden, who belonged to an Ohio regiment and they became friends but afterwards lost sight of each other until they became citizens of Clinton in 1868 or 1869. While Dr. Milton and Mr. Duden were with grant on the outside, Dr. Britts, Amp Hopkins and Adam Fulkerson were with Pemberton on the inside of Vicsburg. Near the close of the war, while Dr. Milton was in the hospital at Quincy, Illinois, he became acquainted with Dr. S. M. Sturgis, the leading dentist of that city, who persuaded him to come to his office and study dentistry when he got out of the army. His discharge came at the close of the war and he complied with the doctor's request. His natural mechanical ability made him a skillful dentist. He inherited a pioneer spirit. His grandfather was a pioneer in Tennessee, going to that state from North Carolina in 1790. His father was a pioneer in Illinois, going there from Tennessee in 18323. In the life of Dr. Milton there was a restlessness of disposition, combined with the pioneer spirit, making him seek new scenes. He established his first office as the first dentist in Princeton, Missouri; later went to Bethany, a larger town. Learning of Clinton and this beautiful section of the country from his brother W. E., who made a trip through here in 1867, he located here as the second or third dentist in April 1868. He remained here until 1874, going to Moberly about the same time Messrs. Woolfolk and Avery went there to engage in the banking business. In April 1871, his brother S. A., who had been with him in North Missouri, became his partner in practice. They moved into the offices now occupied by Dr. S. A. Milton on January 29, 1872. Dr. Milton went from Moberly to Trenton in 1880 and had a large and successful practice. Though he was a strong Republican, among his warmest friends and best patrons were the strongest southern Democrats, while he lived in Clinton. After Trenton, he located in Dodge City, Kansas, then located an office in Durango, Colorado and moved his family to Denver 15 years ago but did not practice there, preferring the freedom of going where and when he pleased. He was a pioneer in the great Creed boom time and thought it was to be a great mining camp. About that time, he was a member of the Colorado State Republican Committee. He headed a large party of Colorado people at the opening of Oklahoma Territory. He was interested in the town of Woodward and had later mining interests in and near Pagosa Springs, Colorado. He became a member of the Baptist Church when a boy. Leaves his wife; a married son and daughter who live in Colorado; and five brothers - W. E. of Durango, Colorado; Dr. S. A. of Clinton; J. H. of Kansas City; Dr. C. A. of Dodge City, Kansas; and Judge B. F. of Wichita.
