bur:
Mt. Zion Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - James P. Nichols was found dead in bed at his home south of the Mound Springs school, early Friday morning. He had been in poor health for some time and the day previous to his death he was not feeling nearly so well but was able to go about his regular work. Dr. Rogers, of Brownington was summoned, who said his death was due to heart failure. He was found by his son's wife, Mrs. Paul Nichols. She and her husband and Jas. P. Nichols had lived together for the past four years. James Parks Nichols, only child of James and Janie Nichols, was born in Jasper County, Missouri, December 19 18864, died March 25 aged 66 years three months and six days. Little Jim was left fatherless when he was about a year old. His father with a companion had captured a horse thief and were guarding him until they could take him to jail. The other man left the room and accidentally his gun was left on the table. The thief grabbed the gun and shot and killed young Nichols. Soon after the tragic death of her husband, Mrs. Nichols came to Henry County with little Jim, and this had been his home since with the exception of a few months. Naturally the tragedy made an impression on the lad. He learned to abhor dishonesty or crime in any form. The son of pioneer parents, he inherited sterling qualities that have gone with him through life. He was noted among his friends and neighbors for his honesty, generosity and all the traits that go to make a good father and a fine citizen. February 2 1890 he was married to Miss Ida Turner. Six children were given them. The mother and an infant passed away December 7, 1904. The living children are Glen F., George H., Mary (now Mrs. Roy Raymond), Charles G. and Paul, all of the southeast part of the county. He also leaves three grandchildren, Jewel, Delora Jane and Dixie Raymond, the children of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Raymond. To these little children he was devoted. He also leaves two half sisters, Mrs. Frank Brown and Mrs. J. C. Detwieler, east of Clinton and a half brother, Charles Slavens, Wellington, CO; also three step sisters, Mrs. Calista Ballard, Rolling Bay WA; Mrs. Willard Crews, Liberty, MO; Mrs. Harry Parks, south of Tightwad. He was one of Henry County's bravest men, even though hardships were many. After the death of his wife, he bravely shouldered the responsibilities of filling the place of both mother and father. He never failed his family. These noble sons and daughters reflect the training he gave them. He was honest and upright in his dealings always. Funeral at the Mt. Zion Methodist church Saturday afternoon. His body was laid in the Mt. Zion cemetery by the side of his wife.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Opal Eula Bunch Nichols was born June 30, 1909, at Mt. Zion, in Henry County, and died Saturday, June 15, 1996, at the Westwood Nursing Center in Clinton. She was the daughter of William David and Mary Susan Snyder Bunch. Opal married Paul Turner Nichols December 24, 1927, in Clinton. To this union five children were born. Opal and Paul spent many years together, farming and raised many fruits and vegetables to sell, as well as the many she canned for her growing family of four boys and one girl. Although making a living was tough at times, there was always plenty of food on the table for the family and to be shared with others. One of the things that her family remembers so well is that when she began to have trouble remembering things, the one thing that she never forgot to ask when you went to see her was "Are you hungry? Have you eaten?" Opal was so thankful for her family and they met often in her home to celebrate various occasions. Following Paul's death, Opal continued to live alone on the farm with her son, Dale, and family, living close by her. One of the Joys of her life was for those grandchildren to come to her house early in the morning and wait for the school bus to come by and pick them up. Many times after they left for school, the sons would stop by. This gave her a few more opportunities to feed them. She always looked forward to her family coming. The time came when she was no longer able to stay on the, farm. At this time she moved to be with another son, Frank, and his wife, Mary. Again she was surrounded by grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She lived in her own apartment with her son and wife on one side of her and her grandchildren on the other side. This allowed her to be independent for several more months under their loving watch-care. Finally, her health failed which made it necessary for her to go to the Westwood Nursing Home. As in any kind of change, there are always adjustments, as was true in the beginning of this change of homes. In one of her times of sharing with her sisters, she said, "I like it here. They are really good to me. I think I'm getting lazy. I never cook food anymore. I just let them bring it to me." Then she smiled her sweet smile. Opal died at the Westwood Care Center, where she had been a patient for the last six months. We, as a family, want to thank the staff at the Westwood Care Center for their loving care. She is survived by four sons, James Nichols and wife, Mary, John Nichols and wife, Helen, Frank Nichols and wife, Mary, and Dale Nichols and wife, Gayle, all of Clinton; one daughter, Pauline Silvers and husband, Noble, Warrensburg; 10 grandchildren, Debbie Nichols Nuss, Shirley Nichols Snorgrass, Steve Nichols, David Nichols, Darren Nichols, Mark Nichols, Tresha Nichols, Denise Boyle, Daniel Boyle, David Boyle; seven great-grandchildren, Crystal Vincent, Frank Vincent, Mary Snorgrass, Mathew Snorgrass, Blake Nichols, Ryan Boyle and Charidee Boyle: two brothers, John Bunch, Versailles, and Gene Bunch, Warsaw; three sisters. Anna Horn and Loraine Scott, both of Clinton, and Irene Jones, Fresno, California. She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul; her parents, William and Mary Bunch; three brothers, Leo Bunch, Ray Bunch and Russell Bunch; one sister, Winifred Jones and a daughter-in-law, Judy Kay Terry Nichols. Funeral services were held Monday, June 17, at the Consalus Chapel, Clinton. Burial was in the Parks Chapel Cemetery under the direction of Consalus Funeral Home, Clinton.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Oct 30 2006 - Lawrence Norcross was born August 1, 1919, on a farm in Henry County, near Norris, the second child of Calvin and Gladys Rogers Norcross. He died October 19, 2006, at Golden Valley Hospital, Clinton. "Cap" as he was known to family and friends, graduated from Norris High School in May 1937 and joined the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). He served in Butler and Carrollton, being honorably discharged after two years. He started farming with his father in 1939. In 1941, Cap married Lacy Irene Wolf and soon they were farming on their own. They began their married life with Cap's bay mare and Lacy's one hundred dollars. They were parents of two sons, Larry William was born September 10, 1942, and Lonnie Lee was born November 14, 1948. Cap was progressive and was often the first one in the area to try new ideas in agriculture. In 1964, he was featured in a magazine article explaining his use of fescue as a seed crop. Cap truly enjoyed the cattle operation. He spent many hours driving his pickup in the pastures, checking cows and calves. He always knew about the cattle auctions in the area sale barns and rarely missed an opportunity to go. Actually, any kind of auction appealed to him. Quail hunting and pheasant hunting were important to him. He usually had a bird dog or two and made several hunting trips to South Dakota. During deer season, he was busy constructing a deer stand or working on a blind to pull behind the truck. Cap always expected a family celebration for all birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. Just before his death he was looking forward to celebrating his 65th wedding anniversary with Lacy on October 25. During the last several years, Cap started buying, repairing and selling boats. If his truck was seen coming down the road, it was almost certain to have a boat behind it. He even checked cattle at times with a boat in tow. He worked on repairs in his home shop several hours each day until July 2006. Cap served on boards for Norris School, Farmers' Produce Exchange, Soil Conservation Service and Big Creek Township Road Board. He will be sadly missed by family and friends. Preceding him in death were his parents, three infant brothers and his brother Bob. Survivors are his wife Lacy; two sons, Lonnie Norcross and wife Lynda, and Larry Norcross and wife Maril; two brothers, Ernest Norcross and Claude Norcross and wife Dorothy; two sisters, Eunice Clark and Margaret Ragland and husband Charles; sister-in-law Ilene Norcross; five grandchildren, Corey Norcross, Carrie Zwally and husband Mike, Casey Becker and husband Mike, Troy Norcross and Tracy Norcross and wife Lori; step-granddaughter Drusilla Oliver; six great-grandchildren, Brandon, bailey, Dylan, Abigail, Madeline and Olivia.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Sep 14 2009 - Charles Edward Norman was born August 12, 1935, in Thebes, Illinois, the son of George Eagleton and Delia (Gibbons) Norman. He died Monday, August 17, 2009, at St. Joseph Hospital, Kansas City. For 74 years he walked among us, making this world a better place through the sharing of his gifts and his personality. On Monday, August 17, 2009, Chuck completed his journey on earth and went home to God. From his youth, Chuck loved the outdoors and sports. As a young man, he played semipro basketball and baseball. He was a lifelong fan of the Chicago Cubs and Bears, later adopting the Kansas City Royals and Chiefs as favorites, also. His son, Charles Jr., remembers hunting and fishing trips with his dad. Chuck also loved to travel and camp out, feeling as "at home" in his Barb's fifth wheel trailer as in their permanent home in Clinton. Some folk work at one job all their lives. Not Chuck. He wasn't afraid to tackle new professions. He worked as a baggage handler at the Grand Central Station in Chicago (which may account for his fascination with model railroading). He was a police officer in two northeast Illinois communities. He worked as a machinist for Farmall Equipment Manufacturing (later International Harvester). When that plant was shut down, Chuck went into business for himself, operating Ability Advisors, selling and servicing durable medical equipment. But it was in the area of volunteerism that Chuck made his greatest impact in the lives of others. In his earlier years in Illinois, he was a foster parent and the manager-coach of a Boys League baseball team. He talked a farmer into signing a long-term lease on an abandoned farm field for $1 a year. That abandoned farm field is now the site of a modern youth baseball complex. After Chuck and Barbara moved to Clinton, they became active members of the Northeast Baptist Church, faithfully supporting and participating in their church and Sunday School class. Chuck also became a member of the local chapter of RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program). Through this he also became involved in Heartland Share, a local food co-op, and it was here that he became known as "The Bread Man" and "The Bread Angel". What began as a modest donation of "day-old" bread products from a company in Sedalia to Heartland Share soon blossomed in a program that shared products also with F.A.I.T.H., the Henry County Detention Center, Camelot and with several local churches. Chuck made a difference for good in a lot of lives. Chuck was preceded in death by his parents, George and Delia (Gibbons) Norman; one daughter, Kathryn Marie Mussared; four sisters, Eva Roberts. Ethel Dodson, Evelyn Creal and Ileana Williams. and one brother, Shelby Norman. He is survived by his loving companion, Barbara Bolderson, of the home; one son, Charles Norman, Jr. and wife, Laurie, Waterloo, Iowa; five grandchildren, Joseph E. Mussared, Andrew D. Mussared, Ruth Peters and husband, Jim, and Dean Clark and husband. Robert; three great-grandchildren, Robert "Robbie" Clark, Dillon Clark and Miles Peters; along with a number of cousins and other relatives, many friends and his dog, Gus, and his cat, Angel. Funeral services were held at the Northeast Baptist Church, Thursday, August 20. Inurnment was in Englewood Cemetery, Clinton.

Henry County Farmer Commits Suicide Monday - Act of Allen Norris, Four Miles From Urich, Thought to Have Been the Result of Despondency Over Ill Health - Allen Norris, four miles northeast of Urich, died early Monday morning as the result of a knife wound, apparently self-inflicted as the result of despondency over ill health. Dr. Galbreath of Urich was called to the home after the body was discovered near a chicken house on the premises. He summoned Dr. W. T. Jennings of Clinton, coroner of Henry County, who examined the body and found a transverse wound extending four inches across the right side of the neck and entirely separating the jugular vein, death coming from the loss of blood. Mr. Norris had used a two-bladed pocket knife, according to Dr. Jennings, and after inflicting the wound, had closed the knife and placed it in the right pocket of his trousers. The knife, pocket, and both hands were blood-stained. After eating breakfast that morning with his family, Mr. Norris had told his wife he was going to look at his rabbit traps. When he did not return within a reasonable time, his sons started to look for him. After investigating the facts in tthe case, Dr. Jennings did not deem an inquest would be necessary. Mr. Norris was about 50 years of age, a good farmer and well-liked in his community. His wife survives, also two sons at home and a daughter in Oklahoma. Funeral services were conducted Wednesday at the Hartwell Baptist church, with burial in the Norris cemetery. Consalus-Peck funeral service was in charge of the funeral.

Clinton MO - Mrs. G. W. Nutt died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. J. Currier, 912 South Main street at 11 a.m. Sunday. She had been bedfast for the past two months. Her mind was a clear as a bell to the last, recalling the friends and facts of many days. She sang the old time church hymns and the lullabies in those last bedfast days in the clear soprano voice of hers, never missing a note. She enjoyed music and singing and many hours in later days would she sit crooning the songs of long ago. She was born June 22, 1825, in Wooster county, Maryland. When the writer interviewed her on her one hundredth birthday, she asked what nationality her parents were, and she proudly replied, Americans. In 1837, she started with her parents, brothers and sisters to Pickaway county, Ohio, which was their home for many years. They went by boat up the Chesapeake Bay, then took road wagons, drawn by double teams of horses or oxen, taking with them just their clothing and bedding. They walked most of the trip, as it was less expensive, but hired things carried. After a two weeks walk, they stopped in Pennsylvania where they remained until fall. Then they continued their journey to Ohio. July 7, 1844, Martha Catherine Littleton was married to George W. Nutt, in Fayette county, Ohio, and they lived happily together for 73 years. Mr. Nutt died ten years ago March 5th. Twelve children were given this union, five of whom survive as follows: J. R. Nutt, Portland, Ore.; Mrs. C. J. Currier, South Main street; Mrs. Nan Vance, Fredericksburg, Va.; Mrs. Belle Edwards, Orient, Iowa; Mrs. L. C. Organ, Kansas City. There are 60 grandchildren, 89 great-grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren, making a total of 170 descendants. She loved little children and it always delighted her to do for them and hear their innocent prattle. Mrs. Nutt was the most unusual woman the writer has ever met, no matter what her age. She was full of energy, alert and ever ready for the next job. Busy fingers were hers always. She liked life and the things it offered. Only after her eye sight failed and she could not see to use her fingers did she long for the last journey. Many people own quilts she pieced as her fingers were nimble. From the time she was 90 until her sight failed her, she had pieced 82 quilts of intricate patterns and quilted five. She considered the "cloud" of her life was her inability to work those last few years of her life, although she would quickly move about her room, "tidying" it the best she could until her sight failed. In this room she was surrounded by many things she loved, including a Seth Thomas clock that had kept time for her more than 70 years. Mrs. Nutt weighed scarcely a hundred pounds and yet she was always strong and well, as she knew scarcely a day's illness until the last two months. She always had a hearty appetite and relished her food, even on those last bedfast weeks. Her favorite dish was boiled cabbage an corn meal dumplings, and not like many old people, the food always tasted good. She knew the household arts, could spin and wove the blankets and much of the woolen cloth they used in the earlier days. When the writer last talked to her about the change of work women do, she gave this reply: "Good women have always worked and always will. When machines take the place of some of the things they have always done, a good woman will not be idle, but will find something else to occupy her mind and hands." Her maiden name was Martha Catherine Littleton. When a child she attended a pay school until she learned to read and spell, about six months altogether, then got the rest of education from books and papers. These were scarce, as well as institutions of learning in the days of her girlhood, but she never let a chance slip to learn and read everything possible. She always read and kept posted on questions of the day as long as she could see. She was a true patriot, the kind that uses every opportunity for their country. She did not fail during the last years of life for then came woman's chance to endorse her opinion by voting and Mrs. Nutt never stayed away from the polls, but studied up the question of both city and country, so she could vote intelligently. She voted the last time for the sale of the city light plant, being the oldest voter that has ever voted at Clinton. While she was modern in her ideas in many things, she did not approve of bobbed hair or the present scanty attire of women. Neither did she like airplanes or automobiles. She was converted at the age of 15 and united with the New Light church. After her marriage she united with the United Brethren, and after they came to Missouri, both of them came into the Methodist Church. She delighted to go and even after she got a little "hard of hearing," and it was difficult for her to catch all the preachers words, she liked the music and seeing the people she knew and loved. She broke her hip about ten years ago, which necessitated her using a crutch, and until the last two years she would attend church services and business downtown. The heavy traffic at the busy street corners did not disturb her as she was quick of thought and motion and always knew exactly what she was going to do. Henry county had been her home since 1882. Funeral at the First M. E. church on Tuesday. Burial beside her husband in Englewood. Her children were all at her bedside during her illness and her daughters were here when she died. Many of the other relatives came for the funeral.

Clinton MO - Friends and relatives were bowed in sorrow when word was received Monday morning, April 29, 1935, that the spirit of Mrs. Floyd Nutt had, without warning, peacefully passed into Eternity. Mrs. Nutt had undergone a very serious mastoid operation at St. Mary's Hospital, performed by a skilled specialist, which proved successful and from which she was rapidly recovering when a blood clot on the brain brought instant death. This was a very severe shock to her loved ones for on the afternoon before, her husband and sons enjoyed a good visit with her and the morning of her death her husband returned to the hospital for his usual morning visit before work hours, leaving her at eight-thirty still improving and happy in the thought that she would return home to her family within two days. The nurse, leaving the sick room on a short errand, only went a few steps away and happened to look back and noticed the hall light for help for Mrs. Nutt had been turned on. She returned immediately only to find that death had claimed her patient during the few seconds she had been absent. Mrs. Floyd Nutt, who before her marriage was Miss Maude Inloes, was born June 24, 1892, eight miles east of Clinton at the old home place where her father now resides. She and her twin brother, Claud, who were inseparable childhood companions, entwined themselves dearly into the love-ties of this home, being the pride of their parents and a new love for their older brother and sister. Maud was a sweet, lovable, good girl, a favorite among her school mates and friends, always thinking of others and her greatest desire was to do something to bring happiness to some one. These characteristics were prevalent throughout her life as many times when she should have saved her strength, she helped those who were in trouble or gave wise counsel to those who sought it. She gave her heart to the Master when a little girl and was first a member of Hutcherson's Chapel at Alberta. On moving to Clinton she placed her membership in the First M. E. church and several years ago when the family moved to Overland Park, Kans., where there was no church of her preference she and her husband together with the boys, joined the Presbyterian church of which she was a member at the time of her passing and where she had faithfully worked until her frail health compelled her absence. December 7, 1912, she was united in marriage to Floyd C. Nutt. To this home four sons were given, two dying in infancy. Those who are left to comfort a bereaved father are Jams Francis and Floyd Edward. The home life has been beautiful with her loving companion and two sons, the father and mother giving their best for each other and their boys and the boys giving their best in return. For a number of years she has endured much suffering but has been patient and kind always willing to bear her burdens uncomplainingly and to give a radiant smile to those about her. Her husband and children were uppermost in her thoughts although she gave a wealth of love to all her relatives. In writing home she would urge her brother and sister not to worry and close with a special message to her aged father whom she loved dearly that she would soon be all right again. Her life is not measured by the number of years but how well she lived them and is a golden memory to those who remain. She leaves her devoted husband, who has ever been untiring in his efforts to restore her health; her two sons, Jas. and Floyd; her aged father, a twin brother, Claud, and an only sister, Mrs. Harry Jones, also many other relatives and innumerable friends. Her beloved mother preceded her in death twelve years ago and her other brother, Allie, three years ago. The funeral was held at the Presbyterian Church on Wednesday morning where Rev. Waters read words of comfort from the Bible and offered a consoling prayer to the bereaved family and a large number of friends who morn with them. The body was brought to Clinton by Consalus and Peck funeral directors, followed by relatives and friends and taken to the First M. E. Church where Rev. Arthur Olsen spoke worlds of comfort in a beautiful way to the family and a large number of friends in her old home church. She was tenderly laid to rest in Englewood beside her infant sons beneath a wealth of flowers.
