After that she worked at the Henry County Courthouse for the county superintendent of schools until the birth of their daughter, Rita, at which time she stayed home to raise her and work at the many tasks of being a farm wife. Alta Ruth was a fun-loving person who loved life and loved people. She was the kind of person who never net a stranger and never forgot a friend. She will be remembered for frequently giving out a smile, a laugh, a wink or a clever saying. She tackled every task or every opportunity with all her energy saying, "There's no time like the present" and "There will be time tomorrow for being tired". She was a member of the Mount Carmel Club and enjoyed a lot of fun times with the ladies of the neighborhood. She loved her church, Hopewell, which was adjacent to the farm on which she grew up. She attended it all her life and worked willingly in any capacity needed. She loved her denomination, Cumberland Presbyterian, and supported all of its outreach ministries. She served it in positions at the state and national level. She loved Jesus and was a children's Sunday School teacher for 50 years until her health forced her to stop. For this the Cumberland Presbyterian Board of Missions recognized her as a "Golden Patron of Missions". She was devoted to her family who benefited from her many prayers on their behalf.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Feb 20 2002 - Robert Keeler Ming, 82, Clinton, father of Rita Overton, died Tuesday, February 19, 2002, at Golden Valley Hospital, Clinton. - Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Mar 18 2002 - Robert Keeler Ming, 82, died Tuesday, February 19, 2002, due to complications arising from a fall while working on his farm near Clinton.

In 2000, the state of Missouri designated the Ming Farm as a "Century Farm" which had been continuously owned and operated in the Ming family for over 100 years. Everyone knew Robert as a hardworking, diligent farmer who kept his place in the best of condition. That is what he was doing when the injury occurred. On December 25, 1942, Robert married Alta Ruth Matter. He was a caring and devoted husband to her for their 57 years of marriage and had missed her greatly since she preceded him in death on July 5, 1999. Robert attended the Hopewell Cumberland Presbyterian Church all his life. He was an elder in the church and served in many leadership capacities over the years. One of the other men of the church said about him, "When you saw that something had been done or that something had been repaired around the church, you just knew Robert had done it." He was the kind of man that saw things that needed to be done and then just quietly did them. Robert was a gentleman of faith and integrity who always put others before himself. He looked for opportunities to be thoughtful and kind to others and was a good example to us all. His love and kindness extended to his family, friends and even strangers if he saw they needed help. He is survived by his daughter, Rita Overton; son-in-law, Fred Overton, and three grandchildren, Robert, Carrie and Kristin Overton, all of Leawood, Kansas, as well as one niece, Sue Downe, and her husband Lawrence Ray Downe, Gainesville, Texas.

Clinton MO - William F. Ming Passes - Eighty-eight-Year-Old Clinton Resident Had Lived in Henry County Since 1879 - W. F. Ming, a resident of Henry County since 1879, who had been ill at his home at 615 South Main street the past three years, died at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, May 15. The infirmities of age had gradually circumvented his activities until he spent his days in a wheel chair cared for with devotion by his daughter, Miss Carrie Ming, of the home, enjoying the visits of his sons, Charles of Okmulgee, Okla., and Robert of near Clinton, and friends who stopped in to visit. William F. Ming was born at Gray Summit, Franklin County, Feb. 1, 1850, the eldest son of Judge James M. and Jemima Ming. Reared in the Southern Methodist church, which he attended faithfully until his health prevented a few years past, and schooled near his home, he developed strong personal characteristics that proved an asset throughout his long life. On January 30, 1878, Miss Celeste Jeffries became his bride and they made their home in Franklin County a year. The next spring they came to Henry County settling near LaDue where Mr. Ming's two younger brothers, E. D. and Emmett Ming, were in the mercantile business, and where Mr. Ming was a successful and foresighted farmer. They had three children, who survive their parents, Robert d. Ming of near Clinton; Dr. Chas. M. Ming of Okmulgee, Okla., and Miss Carrie Ming of the home. Five years ago Mrs. Ming, who had been the devoted and constant companion of her husband, was called home, since which time his daughter filled her mother's place as best she could. In 1879 Mr. Ming with his family came to Henry County, continuing farming. Thirty years ago he sold his farm and moved to Clinton, where for years they resided in a modern home in the south part of Clinton, then called Ming Court, now Fairview addition. Some years ago they bought the property on South Main street which as since been their home. Mr. Ming had a wide acquaintance in rural Henry County and in more active years was a familiar figure about Clinton. His integrity was above question, and he was generous and kind to his family. Inactivity was hard to accept when his life had been so full and dependence was hard, but the unfailing love of his daughter soothed the difficult days. He was a staunch Democrat, had been an Odd Fellow, and a member of the Woodmen of the World Lodge. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church, South on Tuesday. Interment at Englewood. Present from out-of-town for the services were, Jim Ming and son, Emmett, Miss Robena Ming of Washington, Mo.; Misses Nell and Etolia North of Labadia, Mo., Dr. and Mrs. C. M. Ming and daughter, Miss Marjorie Ming of Okmulgee, Okla., Miss Vira Jeffries and C. S. Jeffries of Pacific, Mo.

Mrs. Minich was converted a number of years ago at Old Bear Creek church and had been true and loyal to this sacred place during all these years. She had been a faithful and plucky little woman in the discharge of her household and other duties. She fought the battle of life bravely. She has had many burdens to bear, above the average, as she had nursed and cared for the three daughters who like herself had the dread wasting lingering tuberculosis. In her last days she prayed and sang "There'll Be No Dark Valley When Jesus Comes." She rallied from what seemed to be almost death, and she said "I know the Lord brought me back to tell my friends the things I wanted them to know." She had tried to tell them some days before, "O," she said, "I am so happy. I saw the girls (her daughters who had died) at the foot of my bed all dressed in white silken garments and all so happy." "Now," she said, "I am ready to go. I am so happy. Everything is settled." she had planned the entire funeral service, choosing the minister, the text, the choir, pall bearers and flower girls, and the songs. She also requested that in this writing to extend her most sincere thanks to those who had so kindly administered to her in various ways and especially for the many good things brought for her to try to eat. Mrs. Minich will rest in the Old Bear Creek cemetery by the side of those she loved so well. Through these gates she had so often passed bowed in grief, she passed on as a victor with a victor's song, "It Is Well With My Soul" and "There'll Be No Dark Valley When Jesus Comes" in the services Saturday at the Bear Creek church.

Jean collected coins, and since he knew of his terminal illiness for a few weeks before his death, he had the pleasure of giving his collection to his kids and grandkids which brought him great joy. He was a member of the VFW and American Legion, both in Clinton. In recent years, he liked to buy old rods and reels at garage sales and auctions, cleaned them up and fixed them and resold them on the annual city-wide garage sale day in Clinton. He really enjoyed talking to folks buying fishing rods from him and had many return customers year after year. His health precluded him from fishing for the past couple of years which he greatly missed. He also liked to go to the "coffee shop" to visit with friends. He was preceded in death by her parents, and seven siblings, Hugh, Tom, Joe, Geraldine, Mary, Charles and Josephine. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Wilma Jean of the home; one daughter Peggy Arthur and husband Ron of Clinton; one son Mark Mintun and wife Mary of Chesterfield, Missouri; three grandchildren, Amanda Todd and husband Chad of Olathe, Kansas, Joseph Mintun and Thomas Mintun both of Chesterfield, Missouri; one great-granddaughter, Peyton Todd of Olathe, Kansas; one brother Jim Mintun and wife Donna of Clinton, Missouri and a number of nieces, nephews and a host of friends.

Growing up she discovered that Santa Claus stored Christmas gifts for her and her siblings in an old house close to their home. She and her bothers and sisters would walk out of their holler to a one room school. She liked school so much that one snowy day she was the only one to show up for school. It was too bad out for even the teacher to get to school. After completing her elementary education she attended high school in Grundy. During high school, she remembered sharing clothes with her younger sister, Pat, making it appear that they both had a larger wardrobe. After graduating she went to college in Radford, Virginia with her aunt Agnes for a semester. Not having the funds to continue, she took a job teaching elementary school. Not long after she went to live in St. Louis with her older sister, Dorothy and her family. Later she moved into a Salvation Army home for single women. While living there she was set up on a blind date that ended up being her husband six months later. She married Delmer Mitchel or Mitch as she called him, on his birthday, June 20, 1956 in Grundy, Virginia. They moved around living for short times in Rolla, Missouri, Denver, Colorado, and Detroit, Michigan before moving to the farm in Montrose, Missouri where she lived for over 40 years. A few years after her husband died she moved to Grain Valley to be near her daughter and family. Lorene worked as a bookkeeper for Freuhauf, Wholesome Bakeries and Calhoun Hatchery. She later worked as a cook for the Montrose Public School. In 1968 Lorene and Delmer adopted their son, Michael, who arrived home with much celebration. Then in 1970 they adopted their daughter, Kathryn, keeping quiet about her arrival and surprising everyone especially Delmer’s mother who thought they were babysitting. Lorene kept herself busy with gardening, attending "Club" meetings, volunteering at the Samaritan Center, helping with the Senior Luncheons, and going out to eat with her girlfriends. She enjoyed making and hostessing family dinners on birthdays and holidays.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Miss Mary Elizabeth Mitchell, 101, 313 North Fifth Street, died Thursday, October 24, 1991, at her home. - Miss Mary Elizabeth Mitchell was a true American pioneer, as her ancestors came to this area in covered wagons (with four other families) in 1866. The Mitchells settled on a 40-acre tract of unbroken prairie land located about six miles west of Clinton in Davis Township. The first family home was a two-room log cabin built of logs cut from the timber along the banks of Grand River. The logs were hauled by horses to the cabin site and hewn by Mary's grandfather, Abner Mitchell. He died in 1875, and the family continued to live in this cabin until 1890. Mary's father, Oscar, and his brother Willis, purchased the adjoining farm in 1890, which already had a large house constructed on the site. Over the years, several changes were made to the original structure. Mary and her brother, Paul, lived in the house for many years, and in the year of Paul's death in 1972, Mary moved her residence to Clinton. Mary was born on the farm in 1889, and she still had vivid memories of walking two miles daily to school. When the weather was not good, her father took the children to school on horseback. They rode horses to Clinton when they needed supplies or other items not available on the farm. The Mitchell family belonged to the Mount Carmel Church in Davis Township. Her mother taught a Sunday School class for young women, and Mr. Mitchell taught a men's class. Mary remembers being held on her father's knew when he talked with his Sunday School students. Mount Carmel Church members could only afford to pay their preacher once a month, so that is when the church services were conducted. The members would take turns picking up the pastor in town, and then the minister would stay with that family for the weekend or perhaps several additional days. Mary was always a member of Mount Carmel Church and recalls the time it merged with the Clinton Presbyterian Church in 1941. She enjoyed her work as a Presbyterian Daughters member, and Mary commented that these ladies, "Did a lot of the work for the church that needed to be done." She was still an active member of the Mount Carmel Sewing Club, and these ladies meet once a month for lunch and fellowship. In December 1990, Mary celebrated her 101st birthday, and she resided in an apartment on North Fifth Street. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bush cared for Mary and helped her attend church regularly. Mary is survived by a cousin, Bettie Chapin. Her brother, Paul died in 1972. Funeral services were held Saturday, October 26, 1991 at Consalus Chapel, Clinton. Burial was in Englewood Cemetery.

Joplin Daily Herald, Joplin, MO, Friday Dec 14 1894 - Henry Moats, who has been seriously ill at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Myers on Joplin Street between "C" and "D" streets, died yesterday at 10 o'clock and the funeral will take place from the Myers residence at 2 pm today. Mr. Moats was born 71 years ago the 28 day of October in Licking County, Ohio. He came to Joplin in 1875 and for the first few years of his residence here, he followed mining, after which he embarked in business as a contractor in brick and stone work. He finally abandoned that business and went to work at the White Lead Works and was employed there when he had his first stroke of paralysis in November, 1884, since which time he has been an invalid. He had one more stroke before the fatal one of December 6, and his death had been expected at any time for more than a week. His eight living children were all present at his bedside when he passed away. The funeral as stated will take place this afternoon and the remains will be laid to rest by the side of his wife in the city cemetery. Mrs. Moats passed away twelve years ago. - (Note: Henry Moats resided in Henry Co. at one time, father of Cassius Elmer Moats who married Laura Ann Lobaugh, sister of Ephraim Leroy Lobaugh, who was once mayor of Clinton.)

Joplin Daily Herald, Friday, Dec 22 1882 - Died, at the family residence on Pearl Street, Joplin, Mo., at 1:15 p.m., Wednesday, December 20, 1882, Mrs. Louise Moats, wife of Henry Moats. Mrs. Moats was born in Licking county, Ohio, Aug 24, 1827, and was a little more than 55 years of age at the time of her death. She was converted to God in very early life. She became a member of the M.E. church and has remained a member all these years, having lived a life of devotion to God and His church. She was the mother of eight children - four boys and four girls - all of whom are living and all but one were present at her death. Her health has never been the most robust, having from early life been troubled with asthmetic difficulty, which militated very much against her in her last sickness. Death had no terrors for her: having lived the life of the righteous she was prepared to die His death. Her attachment to her family was very strong, but the odor of that consecrated life will not be lost in earth or heaven. May He who tempers the wind to the shornlamb have the stricken husband and children in His kind care and keeping. (Note: She was the mother-in-law of Laura Ann Lobaugh Moats and the grandmother of many Henry County people.)

Clinton MO - Wednesday morning the sad news spread over the city that the baby son of Mr. and Mrs. Hale Montgomery had met his death by drowning. Between 9 and 10, he had been playing with some other children in the yard of Mrs. Will Messick. When it was learned he was missing, a search was immediately instituted, passing gentlemen being called in to help. One lowered himself into the 12 foot cistern and lifted the child out, dripping and dead. It is believed he could not have been in the well longer than 10 minutes. A physician was hastily summoned and every known remedy applied, but to no avail. Stilled forever was the little prattling tongue. Little Hale was about three, the youngest child and the pride and joy of his parent's heart. Everybody loved the beautiful golden haired, blue eyed baby boy, with such an intelligent mind. Funeral was at the family residence on East Green and services were touching and pathetic. The floral offerings completely covered the tiny casket and tender, loving hands placed the lifeless baby form in the grave at Englewood Thursday afternoon.

bur:
Englewood Cemetery ME-MY, Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Bert Moore died very suddenly at his home on North 2nd street at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, with heart trouble. He had been in failing health for some time and had attacks of heart trouble, but the day before he went to his work and in as good health as usual. He awakened his daughter, Miss Allie, about 2:25, and she quickly got him up in the chair which usually revived him, but he told her that he was going. She quickly summoned the doctor and help, but he passed away before they arrived. While it was sudden, yet it was the way that he had wished, as he enjoyed working and was anxious to keep busy until the final call came. He was born in Utica, New York August 2, 1845. He came to Clinton over 50 years ago, and this had been his home ever since. He was married to Miss Sarah Lee soon after coming here. She had been dead many years. He is survived by three children -- Mrs. Ray Allen, Pittsburg, Kansas; Miss Allie Moore, Clinton, and Bert Moore Jr. Springfield. He also leaves three brothers -- John P. Moore, Kingman, Kansas; T. H. Moore, Newark, Ohio; Ruel D. Moore, Council Grove, Kansas. Mr. Moore had been an employe of the Larabee mills ever since the mill was first built on the site more than 40 years ago. He was engineer for many years all the time it was known as the Tebo mills. As his health failed him he had to give up that, but was always retained by the company, who always gave him positions of trust. He never failed them on anything. He had taught many a new hand the different departments of work in the mill for he loved the place where so long he had worked. Even when it was closed down for several years, he was the watchman as they knew everything would be as well tended as if it had been his own. He was one of the three oldest Odd Fellows in Missouri. In February, the Grand Sovereign Lodge of U.S. and Canada presented him with the Jewel for 50 years membership. Only two other men in Missouri have one. This was quite an honor. He was also a member of the Rebekahs, Masons and Eastern Star. He had held membership in the Masons nearly as long as the Odd Fellows. He was good and kind to all about him; every acquaintance was his friend. He was seldom spoken to as Mr. Moore, "Bert" being the familiar salutation of all who knew him. His son and daughter had arrived Wednesday and part of his brothers were expected, so funeral arrangements had not been made at the time the Eye went to press, but it was thought they would be held Friday.

bur:
Englewood Cemetery ME-MY, Clinton, Henry Co, MO
Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Chester Lee Moore was born on November 1, 1933 at the old Chester (Chettie) Moore farm, west of Route 13, north of Clinton. He was the first born child of the late Mr. and Mrs. Roy Nevins (Courtney Lee Smith) Moore. Chet was flown on short notice to St. Louis University Medical Center late in the afternoon of Sunday, April 5, 1992 for a lung transplant operation. His strength had been sapped from about a ten year battle with a condition identified as "alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency," which reduced his lung capacity. The transplant operation was not successful, but Chet went to sleep dreaming of "running with the wind" once again. He joined his Mom and Dad in the Everlasting Arms of the Lord in the early morning hours of April 6, 1992. He was raised on the Roy Moore Dairy Farm, east of Route 13, north of Clinton. He was graduated from the old Clinton High School on Third Street with the Class of 1952 and attended Central Missouri State College at Warrensburg. Chester was united in marriage with Mary Ann Paul of Chilhowee on November 10, 1957 at the Methodist Church on Wilson Street. They lived for a number of years on the farm, prior to making their home in town. Chet had experience in running businesses from early on. He assisted his father in running the Roy Moore Dairy, a model farm and milk plant operation which achieved statewide recognition for modern and efficient practices on numerous occasions over a twenty year period. He and Mary bought and ran a Kansas City Star route as owner-carriers in the 1960's. Chet always had the ability to accomplish anything with his hands, whether it was fine tuning a reluctant engine, effecting a difficult structural repair of tying off a delicate fly. He put this skill to good use as a dental laboratory technician and owner, progressing rapidly through apprentice and journeyman status to become a master at difficult and challenging dental restorations. His own business, Moore Dental Lab, is widely known throughout the western part of the state for quality and reliability. His home was always open o his friends and those of his family. A loyal member of C.H.S. Class of 1952, he cherished his classmates, members of adjacent classes, their parents and their offspring. Many fondly remember Chet's birthday parties, so close to Halloween, involving hayrides and barn dances in the loft of the dairy barn. The barn (though never again in quite as freshly painted condition as when it was in the family) was easily seen from the road to Warrensburg, and was therefore a Clinton landmark until it was blown down in a violet squall about a month before his mother passed away in May of 1987. His multitude of friends agree his greatest expertise was to be found in his creative pursuit of relaxation and recreation. There was Chet's Fishing Club, pecan tree locating, camping and float trips, motorcycle riding, mushroom hunting, guitar playing, aircraft piloting and yarn spinning. He was fun to be around, witty and loving. He will be missed by young and old. Although his condition curtailed his activities somewhat over time, he exceeded the predictions of the medical community by strictly following their prescribed regime. He was especially proud of flying with Tom Loftin around southwestern Missouri this last Christmas Eve. His entire family is grateful for his special effort to attend the wedding of his niece, Jill, in Virginia in February. Chet's fortitude in getting around even though he was on 100% oxygen was an example of inner strength which everyone admired. Chester was a member of Clinton United Methodist Church and his memorial service there on April 9, 1992, was filled to capacity. He was a member of Masonic Lodge No. 548 which provided a delegation at the church. He was placed at the family plot in Englewood Cemetery, beside his parents and paternal grandparents, beloved Henry County dairy farmer Chettie and Nellie Nevins Moore. His maternal grandparents were Clinton Business College President Ellis and Bertha (Ralls) Smith. Chet was Mary Ann's "bestest friend" and a wonderful, always available dad to Susan, Lea and Paula Jane. Other survivors include his sisters, Mrs. Bruce (Anna Moore) Marshall of Annandale, Va., and Mrs. Richard E. (Patsy Sue Moore) Newell of Chesapeake, Va. Also surviving are his paternal aunt, Mrs. Marcus M. (Eula H. Moore) Kerr of Clinton, and his maternal aunt, Mrs. Carmen Wilson of Edmond, Ok. Loving nephews and nieces also mourn his passing; Mark and Trish Newell and great-nephew Ryan, and Richard Newell, also of Chsapeake, Va., and Jill (Marshall) and Tim Hecht of Alexandria, Va.

Clinton MO - Chettie Moore Fatally Injured - Chettie Moore and his son, Roy, were struck by the south bound Frisco passenger train a little after 1 p.m. Friday of last week, when Mr. Moore received injuries from which he died Saturday morning. They were in a Ford car which was nearly new with the side curtains up, and were on their way back to Clinton, after having been to Englewood, where Mr. Moore put a wreath on his mother's grave. Roy was driving and neither saw nor heard the approaching train, until it was right upon them when Mr. Moore saw it. They were on the track being too late to reverse, so he tried to get off the other way, but it was too late. The car was entirely demolished and none can see why both were not instantly killed. Roy suffered from a sprained back and bruises, but his father's hip was broken, was badly cut on his face and head, and suffered internal injuries, which caused his death Saturday morning at about 7 o'clock at the home of his father-in-law, Joseph Nevins, on South 3rd street. Immediately after the accident he was taken to the home of Tom Snodgrass, which was right at the accident and later moved to the home of Mr. Nevins. Chester M. Moore was born near Bellville, Ill., in St. Clair county, March 22, 1862. In 1869 he came with his parents, the late Jethro B. Moore and wife. They settled just north of Clinton four miles on a beautiful farm, which since has been known as the Moore farm. Here he grew to manhood and after he completed the school nearby attended the Sedalia Business College. August 31, 1897, he was united in marriage to Miss Nellie Nevins, who survives him. Three children were given to this union, all of whom are living: Mrs. Given White, Roy and Eula Moore. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Adelaide Wilderman, of St. Louis and four brothers -- W. A. Moore, who made his home with him; George near Kansas City; C. L. Moore, Chilhowee; Edgar B. Moore, St. Louis. All were here for the funeral except George. Mr. Moore had been a member of the Presbyterian church for the past 23 years and was a man of upright honesty and the highest integrity, a real Christian gentleman. He provided well for his own, his farm and home being one of the best in the county. In fact it is modern and complete in every detail. It was only a few days previous to his death that the writer passed his home and remarked that it seemed that he and his family had everything to make life happy. He was a good neighbor and friend, and stood for progress in the community. His farm is in the highest state of cultivation, every bit of it being used to the best advantage. He had a herd of pure bred Jerseys that were the pride of the community. In fact, Henry county has lost one of our best citizens. The call came quickly and he has gone away, leaving as a heritage to his family a life that was clean in its record, and one that is an example for them to follow. The entire community bowed with the bereaved ones in sympathy at this Christmas time that so great a sorrow had come into their lives. All possible was done for them, but only the Comforter can heal these broken hearts. The funeral services were conducted at the Clinton Presbyterian church on Sunday, after which his body was tenderly laid in Englewood.

Clinton MO, Jun 3 1893 - Reuben D. Moore, a popular and efficient educator and Henry County's newly-qualified school commissioner, died at his residence in this city Tuesday evening of stomach troubles. To the community his death was sudden but friends and neighbors knew that each succeeding indisposition left him more fragile. Born in Fleming County, Ky., November 22, 1849. Came to Missouri in 1878, locating at Brownington, where he taught the public schools for 7 years. In 1879, he married his assistant, Miss Arizona Hudnut, accomplished daughter of Henry Hudnut near Deepwater. Together, they made the vocation of teaching a pleasure. Receiving an appointment as superintendent of government schools, Sac and Fox agency, in President Cleveland's first term, for two years he and his wife most faithfully performed the duties until so broken in health he felt he must return to the county of his adoption. So capable was he that an increase in salary was offered, without avail and in 1890, he bought a cozy home in Clinton, still following teaching - two terms at Calhoun and one near Deepwater. Of high moral character, known and appreciated as a citizen and educator, the party whose cause he espoused paid him the deserved compliment of a nomination of county school commissioner, to which he was elected in April. Funeral at the Baptist Church and the remains were conveyed to Englewood, where the last rites were witnessed by a multitude of sorrowing friends.

He had been drawing water for his horses, and it is thought he became overbalanced and fell in the well. However, it is not thought he died from drowning, as his lungs were not filled with water. The indications are that he might possibly have had a stroke, or death might have come from his head striking the side of the well. He was afflicted with some spinal trouble, which caused him to often fall. He and his wife were in Clinton the Sunday before, spending the day at the home of her sister, Mrs. M. K. Bronaugh, and while here consulted a physician. Deceased was 59 years, 1 month and 20 days of age. He was married to Miss Cora Bailey, who was born and reared in that neighborhood.
