Walton, who lives on the Bellama Springs road southwest of Fulton, died Saturday night last of pneumonia. He was sick several weeks ago with measles, and just as he was recovering exposure to the weather caused pneumonia to attack him. The deceased was about fifty years old and leaves a wife and seven children. He was an Odd Fellow and was buried Sunday in the Burdette cemetery at Ballenger Springs with the honors of that order. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. William Castle, of Fulton. The Walton family has been unusually unfortunate. In November their house was burned and the family had to make their home in the outbuildings on the farm. Then the children of the household became sick with measles, and at one time eight members of the family were down. The death of the father and chief support of the family comes now to increase their distress. The Index of 19 Feb 1920, p.12: The subject of this sketch, Richard Southard, departed this life January 3, 1920. Uncle Dick, as he was called by all who knew him, had been in failing health for several years, having that dreaded disease, asthma, but had been able to be up most of the time up till his death. Uncle Dick was born in April 1854, and had spent most of his time in Benton and Hickory Counties, but wherever he was he always had friends. He was of that disposition that he made friends wherever he went. He was married on January 2, 1881 to Nettie Cooper. To this union was born seven children, George, living near Fairfield, Mo.; Dan, of Kansas City, Mo.; Martha Barker, of Kansas City, Mo.; Ross, of Wheatland, Mo.; Laura Blackwell, of Warsaw, Mo.; Laura Blackwell, of Warsaw, Mo.; and Addie Hardin, of Tulsa, Okla.; Frank, the youngest child, at home with his mother. The death of Uncle Dick was a shock to most everybody, as he had been in poor health so long, and bore his sickne! ss so patiently, always being cheerful, passing the time away with music, as he always enjoyed music. He was converted and joined the Baptist church, living up to his faith praising his Heavenly father, at home in his own way. Uncle Dick had the best of care at home, having a loving companion, who was always ready and willing to do anything for him that could be done, but the Grim Reaper of death claimed him and the spirit forever left his dwelling and returned to God who gave it, leaving the dear ones on this earth to enlist with the dearest of all, Our Savior where sorrow, pain nor death never entereth, but life everlasting. The funeral services of this form was conducted by Rev. Asro Breshears at the Brethern church, and his remains laid to rest in the Spring Branch cemetery near by to await the resurrection.

On Sunday, April 6th, at 2 a. m. o'clock, Mrs. Sarah Jones passed from this life unto death. She was born July 12th, 1844, and died April 6th, 1913, aged 68 years, 9 months and 6 days. She professed Christ at an early age and joined the Baptist church and lived a Christian life until her death. She was married to W. B. Jones September 22, 1865, and to this union were born 13 children, 9 boys and 4 girls, 9 of whom are living, 7 boys and 2 girls. Her husband and 4 children preceded her to the better world several years ago. She bore her sickness patiently, but longed for the change to come when she might enter the bright portals of eternal bliss where no sorrow ever comes, and we have evidence causing us to say this. She spoke so often of hearing the Angels singing, and tried to help them sing. The first song was "Leave me, leave me not alone," and the next one was "They say I'm coming home, and coming now." We cannot say she is dead for she has only gone on before to the home prepared for all who die in such faith as she did. While we have lost a dear friend, we realize our loss is heaven's eternal gain. Yet, while we would like to have her with us, we would not call her back to this world of sin and sorrow. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. T. Ferguson at the Baptist church at Bethel after which her dear form was tenderly laid to rest to await the judgment morning when all will be gathered home.

Bolivar Free Press 11-8-1904 Vol 37 - #30 Page 3 - Col 6 Joshua Owen Butler was born July 31, 1835, near Nashville, Tennessee. He was married to Josephine Cunningham June 7, 1855. Of this marriage eight children were born, four girls and four boys, four of whom are still living. They are; Mrs. Mary Hutcheson, who lives in this county, George L., who resides in Bolivar, Benjamin A., who lives at Red Bluff, California, and Mrs. Zella Logan, who lives at Stephens, Nebraska. He made a profession of religion in 1871 and united with the Mt. Olive Baptist Church, of which church he was a member of when he died. Although raised in the South, yet he enlisted in the Federal Army and proved a faithful, honest, religious and peace loving citizen of his country. His life as a Christian was a model for all to follow, always true to his Savior, and kind and loving to his fellowman. His whole trust was in his God, and to go to church was not only a duty but a joy and a pleasure with him. As long as his health permitted he was found regularly in his seat in the church h loved so well, where he could sit and listen to the word of God, which was to give him strength for the future battles of life. As a neighbor he was loved and respected by all, for you could not know him and not love him with his kind, considerate, and straightforward manner of living. His life was crowded with events that try men's souls but he looked ever to Jesus and He carried him through all his trials in safety and he came out of these trials a stronger and better man, and by his example taught us the Christ-life is the only one to live. He died Thursday night, October 27, 1904, at 10 o'clock, surrounded by a part of his children, and his neighbors and friends. His last sickness was of short duration, but was very severe, and it gave his kind wife and children, and friends heart felt trouble to see him suffer as he had to. He died as he lived, still strong in the faith that his Savior died to save and had saved his soul. Only a few days before his death he was heard to strongly profess his faith in Christ and the joys of salvation. He has gone on before us, but his memory and example will live long after him and be the means of making men better. It is truly good for such men to have lived with us. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. L.S. Colborn, of Bolivar, in the Mt. Olive Baptist Church from John 14: 2: I go to prepare a place for you. The funeral service was largely attended by the many friends and relatives. Stevens Point Daily Journal - August 3, 1932 Rev. John S. Durfee Rev. John S.

John Sherman Durfee of Collins, Mo., was born in Freeport, Ill., December 21, 1867, and passed away at his home in Collins July 29, 1932, after a lingering illness which confined him to his bed for a period of 15 months. He was united in marriage with Miss Dora Bayless of the town of Linwood, Wisconsin, March 13, 1887. To this union four sons and two daughters were born. One son preceded him to the Great Beyond 32 years ago, in May, and another son 28 years ago last February.

He had many personal and devoted friends, not only in Collins but in Wisconsin, his former home. Especially during his long illness had he endeared himself to the community. He was ever patient in his suffering and often talked of his eternal home and his readiness to obey his Master's will. During his illness his faithful companion was ever at his bedside, anticipating whatever comfort was possible to his afflicted body. In this she was ably assisted by the resident son, Howard. All of his children were present at his bedside in the last sad hour except one daughter who had recently visited him. His first pastorate was at the Meehan church in Wisconsin. When he became the pastor there the congregation worshipped in a store building. Rev. Mr. Durfee had the joy and privilege of building and dedicating a church for them and a poem was written recently by a personal friend concerning this church and sent to him a few days prior to his passing .
