Spanky was born March 6, 1961 in Weaubleau, Missouri, the son of Homer and Ruby (Quick) Ball. He was an over the road truck driver. Spanky was preceded in death by his father.

Arrangements: Royer-Hays Funeral Home, Blue Springs, MO 816-229-5551 Joyce Hope Gillette Stewart Joyce was born August 8, 1928, in Bakersfield, MO, to Lester O. Gillette and Lillie Anderson Gillette. She passed away March 20, 2017, in Springfield, MO, at the age of 88. Joyce graduated from Ava High School and began teaching in a one room schoolhouse in Lutie, MO, for one year. For the next two years, she rode her horse to teach in the one room schoolhouse located at Toledo, north of Thornfield, MO. On March 16, 1946, Joyce married Ivan Jay Stewart in Mountain Home, AR, and moved to Washington State where their first son, Darrell Keith Stewart was born. Jay worked in logging along the White Salmon River. After surviving a couple of harsh mountain winters, Jay and Joyce moved to western Kansas where she resumed teaching. A road construction company approached Jay, and they relocated to Wetmore, CO, and in 1956, their second son, Gary Kent Stewart was born in Pueblo, CO. Prior to this, in 1952, they bought their first farm in Weaubleau, MO. In the winter of 1956, they moved to Weaubleau, fulfilling a dream of owning land and farming. Over the next forty years they acquired additional farm land, and Joyce completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Southwest Missouri State College during the summer months. Her nickname at the time was "Speedy Stewart," as those who commuted with her would attest to even today - they were never late for class! Joyce completed her Master's Degree in Education from Drury University. Her last six credit hours were obtained while studying abroad in Durham, England. On three- day weekends, she and Jay saw a vast part of Europe and especially enjoyed meeting farmers from the various countries they visited. This was a very special time in their lives. When Joyce retired in 1990 from the Weaubleau School System as Elementary Principal, she had been an educator for 42 years. The majority of her teaching career was spent in the second grade classroom, where she instilled in her students the love of reading and taught them to write in cursive. Upon retirement, Joyce and Jay maintained their zest for travel, camping and fishing in Alaska, exploring parts of Mexico near Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco as well as becoming snow birds in Arizona. The warmer and drier winter climate in Arizona was a god send to Jay's health, and Joyce learned to ride a bike, enjoyed water aerobics, and went to the mall everyday if she wanted! They enjoyed their home in Mesa, AZ, for 13 years before Jay was unable to travel back and forth due to his declining health and death in 2005. Joyce continued to be a snow bird until the spring of 2015. While in Mesa, she and her miniature Schnauzer, Frisco, enjoyed riding the golf cart to the doggy run, going to the club house for exercise, drinking coffee and eating cookies, checking the mail, and playing cards and socializing with the neighbors. The legacy of Stewart Farms, begun in 1952, will continue through sons Darrell and Gary, and grandson, Leslie Stewart and his family. Wonderful examples and lessons were provided by Joyce and Jay to their family, whether that was being a member of a team, bottle feeding 100 Holstein heifer calves twice a day, instilling the importance of education and lifelong learning, or making time to gather with family to make special memories. Her work ethic, belief in God, and ability to be humble among her peers will be greatly missed. Special thanks to all who were care givers and friends to Joyce in her final days, your hugs were very special; Cindy Massey, Lynette Calhoun, Seasons Hospice staff, Jerry Spradling, and friends of Gary and John Shepherd. Your acts of kindness will never be forgotten. Joyce was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Gerald Dale Gillette, his wife Ida; husband, Ivan Jay Stewart; and twin granddaughters, Lenora Jean and Lora Ann Stewart.

The Index, Hermitage, Missouri 11 May 1944, Thursday Chester Sutt Reported Missing in Action Private Lennie Chester Sutt has been reported missing in action in the European area since April 28, according to word received from the war department by his wife, Mrs. Rosella Sutt of Wheatland. Pvt. Sutt has been overseas since February of this year. He has an 8-months old daughter, Sharon Kay. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Lum Sutt of Wheatland. The telegram to Mrs. Sutt read as follows: "The Secretary of War desires to express deepest regrets that your husband, Private Lennie C. Sutt has been reported missing in action since April 28th in the European area. If further information is received you will be promptly notified." Pvt. Sutt entered the service in February 1943 and was assigned to a quartermaster service company. He took his training at San Bernardino, Calif., also near Los Angeles; spent sometime at the amphibious training base at Ft. Pierce, Fla., and was later at Camp Pickett, Va. He landed in England last February. Friends are much concerned over this news and join with the family in the hope that Chester will soon be found safe and well. The Index, Hermitage, Missouri 18 May 1944, Thursday Pleasant Hill Items This community was saddened to hear that Pvt. Chester Sutt is reported missing in action. We truly hope that good news will be received from him soon. His father, Lum Sutt, who was working in K.C. came home after receiving the sad news. The family and Mrs. Chester Sutt and baby spent Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Bentley Dorman. The Index, Hermitage, Missouri 17 Aug 1944, Thursday CHESTER SUTT KILLED IN ACTION, APRIL 28 Pvt. Lennie Chester Sutt, 21, who was reported missing in action on April 28, is now reported killed in action on that date in the European area. This word was received from the War Department last Thursday by his wife, Mrs. Rosella Sutt of Wheatland. Pvt. Sutt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lum Sutt of Wheatland, was in a quartermaster service company, and although no information has been received in regard to his death, it is indicated by recent news dispatches in the daily papers that he may have lost his life in the mysterious war maneuvers which brought other casualty reports to many sections of the state bearing the April 28 dates. The casualties occurred when Nazi E-boats sank two LST craft loaded with troops during the war maneuvers in the English channel. Most of the men lost were in the quartermaster corps. Chester entered the service at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, on Feb. 4, 1943. He took his training at Indio, Calif.; Base General at San Bernardino, Calif.; Needles, Calif.; Ft. Pierce, Fla., where he was in amphibious training, and Camp Pickett, Va. He enjoyed what proved to be his last visit at home in December 1943. He sailed for England in January of this year. He was born near Wheatland on Jan. 11, 1923. He was reared in that section and graduated from the Wheatland high school in 1940. On May 27, 1942, he was married to Miss Rosella Curtis and they have a daughter who was 1 year old last Friday, August 11. Other survivors include his parents and one brother, Lester of the home. Friends of the family regret to hear of this tragedy which has entered the home and deepest sympathy is extended to them.

Visitation will be from 2 p.m. to service time Sunday at the church. Mr. Breeding died March 14 at Gainesville Health Care Center in Gainesville. He was born Oct. 4, 1919, in Locust, the youngest of the five children of Eloise and Benjamin Franklin Breeding. He grew up in the Locust community, where his parents farmed and operated a general store and post office. He attended the one-room school at Locust and then rode with his older siblings in the family’s Model T to attend high school in Gainesville, where he graduated in 1938. On June 3, 1939, in Ava, he married his high school sweetheart, Genelle McDonald, a month after her graduation from Gainesville High School. With the strong encouragement of Mr. Breeding’s father, they began to pursue their teaching careers by enrolling in Southwest Baptist College in Bolivar. After completing enough credit hours, they began teaching in the one-room schools of Ozark County. Mr. Breeding taught at Charity, Locust and Pontiac before he and his wife moved to the Gainesville school system. After their children, Faunlee and Mike, were born, they continued their education by attending school many summers at Southwest Missouri State Teachers College in Springfield and finished their degrees in 1956. Mr. Breeding completed his master’s and specialist’s degrees in evening classes at Drury University in Springfield, graduating magna cum laude and with membership in Phi Beta Kappa; he also earned hours toward a doctorate. At Gainesville Elementary School, Mr. Breeding taught junior high classes that included his own two children. He was also elementary principal and coached the junior high basketball team. At the end of many school years, he loaded his students into an old stock truck and hauled them to his farm to enjoy baseball games and cookouts. The Breedings also served as chaperones for many Gainesville senior class trips to Washington, D.C., and Florida. In 1968, he became superintendent of the Gainesville school system, a post he held until his retirement in 1982. In recognition of his 39 years of exemplary service to the students of Ozark County, the Gainesville High School football stadium was named in his honor. Throughout his teaching career, he also enjoyed traveling throughout the area to work as a high school basketball referee with his referee partner, Joe Ebrite. He and his wife also owned and operated a book store and soda fountain in Gainesville for a while. The Breedings enjoyed traveling the country in various campers and motorhomes. Their adventures included two driving trips through Mexico and other trips to Florida, Texas and California. For their 49th wedding anniversary they flew to Alaska to visit lifelong friends Dr. Marv and Dorsey Looney; they were planning a trip to Hawaii for their 50th anniversary when Mr. Breeding suffered the first of two heart attacks he would endure during his later years. Many happy hours were spent at the Breedings’ houseboat on Bull Shoals Lake in Pontiac. He was proud of saying he had water-skied at age 60. He also raised cattle and enjoyed riding around his land to check on them. Moments before he died, he looked out the window and saw the snow falling on his land surrounding the Gainesville Health Care Center. The pull of the hills and hollers of Ozark County never left him, and he often said there’s no prettier county in Missouri than this one. He was a lifetime member of the First Christian Church in Gainesville, a Shriner, a 60-plus-year member of the Gainesville Lions Club, a 75-year Mason and a member of the Elks Club. He is survived by his children, Faunlee Harle and husband Fred, and Mike Breeding and wife Judy, all of Springfield; grandchildren Brittnee Mayse and husband Matthew of Springfield, Jonathan Breeding of Washington, D.C., and Matthew Breeding of Springfield; great-grandson Evan Mayse; many nieces, nephews and cousins; and special friends Bonnie Ebrite, LaVese and Kenny Ericksen, and Robby Barnett.

He was making the examination and I still had hold on the reins, when an automobile drove past and frightened the team. They jerked loose from both the doctor and me and in turning around they broke away from the rig and bolted up Delaware street.

Governor Peter Kinder reflects on Senator Ed Quick’s service and legacy AUGUST 30, 2016 BY BRIAN HAUSWIRTH Former Missouri Senate President Pro Tem Ed Quick (D-Kansas City) is being praised as a public servant and a “man of his word” by Lt. Governor Peter Kinder (R). Quick died Saturday. Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder “Ed Quick was a man of integrity. He was a soft-spoken gentleman of the old-school”, Kinder says. Quick and Kinder served in the Missouri Senate together for 12 years, from 1992 to 2004. Kinder says while he didn’t always agree with Senator Quick, he always respected him. Kinder recalls the first few weeks in January 2001, where Quick and Kinder served as co-President Pro Tems. That’s because Republicans had 16 seats after the November 2000 election, while Democrats had 15 with three vacancies. Kinder credits Quick with putting the people’s business first. “Other states had not been able to organize the Senate. We were able to work through that. And it was because of Ed Quick’s reasonable nature, I think, that made a lot of it possible,” Kinder says. Republicans won two of the three special elections (John Cauthorn, R-Mexico, and Dan Klindt, R-Bethany) in January 2001, giving them an 18-seat majority and making Kinder the first GOP Senate President Pro Tem in 53 years. Quick became Senate Minority Leader, and Kinder says he worked closely with Quick on the Senate Administration Committee. Kinder says Quick’s legacy includes the Democrat’s work to pass a major health insurance program for poor and uninsured children in the 1990s. Then-Governor Mel Carnahan (D) signed that bill. Quick’s final year in the Senate was 2004. He was the last Democratic Senate President Pro Tem. He also served as Clay County Presiding Commissioner. SENATOR EDWARD E. QUICK Senator Edward E. Quick, 81, died August 27, 2016, at home. The family would love for you to join them at a memorial service which will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31, at the First Baptist Church, 2205 Iron St., NKC, MO 64116.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Northland Healthcare Access, PO Box 14414, Parkville, MO 64152, Tri-County Community Mental Health, 3100 NE 83rd St., KCMO 64119 or IAFF Local 42 Community Service Fund, 6320 Manchester Ave., KCMO 61433. Ed was born on February 16, 1935, in Rich Hill, Mo., to Oscar and Hester Quick. He was born with a strong will, quiet spirit and a determination to make a difference in the world. At 17 years old, he enlisted in the Navy and fought honorably in Korea. After serving his country he came back to the Kansas City area and became a Kansas City Missouri Firefighter. He always said, "when it was too tough for others, it was just right for station 22." Ed so loved being a firefighter. During that time he also started a small throw paper called Quick Midwest Postal with offices in Kansas City, Independence, Wichita and Springfield. In 1975, as the underdog, he won the election and became a Kansas City City Councilman representing the 1st District. In 1985 he ran for and successfully became a Missouri State Senator. Ed rose through the ranks to become the majority leader, minority leader and the honorable position of President ProTem of the Missouri State Senate. He retired from the Senate in 2005. In 2006 he became Clay County's Presiding Commissioner until 2010. In 2010 he became a part-time lobbyist for Jackson County. Ed was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, a brother and his daughter, Teri. Survivors include his wife, Jane, children, Brent (Shari) Ellison, Randy Quick, Richard (Sylvia) Quick, Mark (Laurie) Quick, Rebecca Johnston. Grandchildren Nathan, Marley, Ethan, Gabriella, Adrianne, Leslie, Tiffany, Katie, Jessica, Amanda and the youngest Ziva and nine great grandchildren. His family will ever be filled with his love, his support, his stability and his dancing, intense blue eyes. Ed's wife, Jane, is forever grateful to Dr. Michael Loggan, Dr. William Bednar and NKC Hospital for their extraordinary and compassionate medical care. Ed Quick led a remarkable life filled with joy, sorrow, laughter and lots of love. He came into this world wanting to make a difference and has left this world having done just that. Published in Kansas City Star on Aug. 30, 2016 BY STEVE KRASKE skraske@kcstar.com Ed Quick, the dapper former state senator who represented Clay County in the Missouri Senate for 20 years, died Saturday. He was 81. He died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a lung ailment. A Democrat, Quick rose from Kansas City firefighter to the state Senate’s top position, president pro tem, becoming the first Kansas City lawmaker to hold the post in four decades. He capped his career with a four-year term as Clay County presiding commissioner that ended in 2010. His crowning achievement may have been his work in Jefferson City overseeing passage of a health insurance program for poor, uninsured children. He also worked to lower sales taxes on groceries. Another accomplishment: He was on the initial board of directors to start Tri-County Mental Health in Clay, Platte and Ray counties. “He was a wise and steady presence in Jefferson City,” recalled Roy Temple, chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party who once served as Gov. Mel Carnahan’s chief of staff in the 1990s. “That was rare enough then. It’s even rarer now.” Quick may have been quiet, but Temple said he had a steely resolve. “You were a fool if you didn’t know that just because he was quiet didn’t mean he didn’t have an opinion or wasn’t willing to stand up and fight for things he believed in. “Part of what made him effective was he wasn't always talking. He had the ability to listen to what others thought...and facilitate the kinds of conversations that led to productive outcomes.” Scott Charton, a former Statehouse correspondent for the Associated Press, described Quick as a “quiet, humble and courteous man” who was well-liked by Senate colleagues in both political parties. “Ed was one of the old school. When he gave his word, that was good enough,” Charton said. Born in Rich Hill, Mo., Quick went to school in Higginsville. He served as a Kansas City firefighter from 1960-1970 before launching his political career by winning a seat on the Kansas City Council in 1975 representing a 1st District seat in the Northland. He was re-elected twice and served for 10 years. In 1985, Quick won the first of five terms in the state Senate from the 17th District in Clay County. He served until 2005 during a time that saw the Senate transition from decades of Democratic control to a Republican takeover that continues today. Quick was elected Senate president pro tem for 1999-2000 after serving two years as majority leader. During his two years as Senate president, a fellow senator from Kansas City, Ronnie DePasco, served as Senate majority leader, giving Kansas City a rare one-two punch in the General Assembly’s upper chamber. In 2001-2002, he served as Senate minority leader. “Ed wasn't a grandstander,” said Jim Mathewson, who served as Senate president pro tem longer than anyone in state history. “He might go two weeks and never get up on the floor. But when Ed spoke on an issue, whether he be for it it or against it, people listened.” Billy Oliver Hutton, 90, Weaubleau, Mo., died July 29, 2016, at Citizens Memorial Healthcare Facility, Bolivar, Mo. Funeral services were at 2 p.m. Tuesday, August 2, at Hathaway-Peterman Chapel with Rev. Allen Perkins officiating.

Wilson Cogle The Index, 5/29/1924 While all nature was hushed as if in obeisance, Death's silent sentinel again visited our midst and Laura E. Wilson Cogle was called to that land from whence no traveler ever returns. Laura E. Wilson Cogle was born near Quincy, Missouri November 16, 1861 and departed this life near the same place on May 8, 1924. Aged 62 years 5 months and 22 days. She united with the Christian Church when 16 years of age and thereafter lived a devoted Christian life. She was married to John T. Cogle Oct. 28, 1880 to this union were born seven children, Effa M. Reser, Preston; Emma A. McCaslin, Osceola; Ollie I. McCaslin, Quincy; Nellie M. Miller, Gerster; Ada N. Gardner, San Bernardino, Calif.; Chas. L. Cogle, Kansas City and Seth T.

The Index, 5/29/1924 (Robert Lee Johnson) Boy Shot And Killed Monday. News came by wire Monday evening of a very sad affair happening in this county west of Pittsburg and near Antioch church. Prosecuting Attorney Chrisope was notified of the killing of a mere boy aged about 13 years at the home of George Johnson in the afternoon. As we learn from the story, the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson were away from home having gone to Bolivar. The boys of this home, three of whom were 9, 11 and 13 years of age were left at home and the one aged 13 was killed by a shot gun wound, the load striking him in the temple removing the fore part of the head seemed the gun was discharged at close range. After the happening the younger boys went to the home of a near neighbor by the name of Quick and reported the fact that their brother had been shot dead but that they did not do it. Neighbors found the dead boy as the brothers had said. We further learn there was a shotgun in the home in a rack, that the father said there were only two shells about the home and only one loaded shell was found but an empty shell was in the gun and the gun in the rack as had been before. It is said the boy killed died with a firm grip on an iron poker used about the fire place. It is indeed a sad affair and little is known as to how it came about. A coroner's jury was empaneled, sworn and handled the case by what evidence they could obtain before John P. Dennis, Justice of the Peace, and we learn the verdict was that the boy came to his death at hands of himself or younger brothers. The Index, 5/29/1924 Grandma Ingra Bergstrom Passes Away Mrs. Ingra Bergstrom, the wife of Peter Bergstrom, deceased died at the home of her son, Emil, east of town last Saturday at 2:30 p.m. This splendid aged lady with her husband came to this county in an early day and settled in the Sweede settlement east of Hermitage founded by her brother, Judge Peter Solberg who we believe was the first to come, more than 50 years ago. In addition to the son, Emil whom we had mentioned, the other children of this union are Mrs. Charles Carlstrom, a son Henry, of this county and a son, John H., who resides with his family in the state of California. Mrs. Bergstrom was a sister of Mrs. Eric Peterson who survives, also to the late Ole Solberg deceased, and an Aunt of Eric Eklof. The funeral service was held at Victory church and interment in Clark Cemetery Sunday. The Index, 4/24/1924 R. H. Collins was born August 6, 1849. Departed this life April 6, 1924.

Funeral services were conducted by the writer at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. C. Brookshire and the remains were laid to rest at the Robinson Cemetery. Eld. W. S. Birdsong Thomas R. Wyatt The Index, 4/24/1924 A Comrade Gone With sadness we note in the St. Clair County Republican, the passing over to that undiscovered country, April 11th 1924, our friend and comrade Thomas R. Wyatt, of Gerster, Mo. Well be we, the undernamed comrades remember the first day of Mar. 1862, more than 62 years ago at Pittsburg Hickory county, Mo., the enrollment and muster into service of Co. "C" 8th M.S.M. Cav., when Thomas R. Wyatt, a mere stripling of a boy was one of our number. While our hearts are sad at his going away, yet it is a pleasure for us to testify that "Tommy" had and deserved the esteem and good will of every man in the company. He was never known shirk or evade a duty, he was of a generous cheerful disposition, ever ready and willing to render help in time of need to those in distress; he went into the dangerous places with manly courage, never a whimper was heard from "Tommy." On the many long weary marches thru storm, rain, snow, mud and cold he went without a murmur He had the abiding confidence and good will of the officers and all the boys. When the fratricidel struggle was ended, and he was mustered out of service at St. Louis, in March 1865 after three years of honorable service he returned to his home in St. Clair county and became an honored citizen and good neighbor and so continued his honorable manhood. And thus when the summons came, and the roll was called by the Great Commander he was ready to answer "Here." So may it be with the remaining eight of us that are yet in line in this temporary camp. We know that the muster out roll will soon be completed for us all. John N. Price Jas. H. Mashburn Andrew J. Tillery Thos. C. Mashburn Jesse Hartley Geo. W. Mashburn John Barb Pitts Wm. McCracken The Index, 4/24/1924 Elder L. J. Tatum Passes Away News came Monday morning announcing the death of Elder Landrine J. Tatum at his home near the old homestead where he resided with a daughter and husband Mr. and Mrs. John Agee. This venerable old citizen and Minister of the Gospel lived till the old age of little past 92 years, born Feb. 22, 1832. Elder Tatum was one of the great leaders of the Missionary Baptist church in this section of Missouri and in this county as our history states churches are dotted over the country of which he was a strong factor in their organization and building; one of the early ones we think to mention was organized at Macedonia north of Wheatland in the year 1874 which is perhaps the stronger church in the county and many others at about that time. A good man has quit the walks of life and has passed on to his final reward and rest. He was perhaps as widly known as any citizen of our county. More will be said of him as a tribute to his memory. Second Obit--- The Index, 6/19/1924 Elder L. J. Tatum was born in Ash County, North Carolina, February 22nd 1832, and passed away on April 21st 1924. He lived 92 years 1 month and 28 days, enjoyed good health while he lived here on this earth and after sleeping through the night aroused about eight o'clock in the morning for a few moments only to pass on to a better world to live forever and ever. He had not been well for several days, but did not seem to suffer. With him at the time of his death was his oldest daughter, Thedosia, who through his desire cared for him constantly during the last eight and one-half years, trying as best she could to fill the vacancy left in his life since the good companion and mother had passed away on November 17, 1914. Funeral services were conducted in the old home church the Ebenezer Baptist church of Dooley's Bend, by Eld. H. R. McCain, Baptist Minister of Preston, Mo., on April 22nd 1924, and the mortal so dearly loved was interred in Dooley Bend Cemetery. Among the songs he loved so well they sang "I'm Going Home to Die No More," "Shall We Gather at the River," and "I Shall Know Him." He is survived by two daughters, Theodosia B. with whom he made his home and Georgia T. of Los Angeles, Calif. Also there are surviving him 10 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. One little daughter died in infancy, and another daughter, Margaret, lived to the age of 5 years. He was the step-father of Mrs. Sallie A. Moore of Otis, Colorado; Mrs. Elizabeth Mashburn of Humansville, Mo., who passed away a few years ago, and L. C. Sheriff of Independence, Kansas. Besides being a father and fatherly to those mentioned, he lovingly received and raised one of his grandchildren, Atha Lea Dent, who was left fatherless in his home, and who was always proud to call him father. He was converted in Gilmer County, Georgia, at the age of 16, and at that time consecrated his life to God for the Ministry, and was never at any time afterward unfaithful in his duty to God in his promise to "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel***." In his boyhood community he was the means of the conversion of several of his schoolmates and schoolteacher, who were baptised with him shortly after. With the beginning of the Civil War, he discovered himself a Union man on Southern soil, but with his family made a safe journey to the Union States, traveling from Georgia to Hickory County, Mo., with oxen teams and a Tennessee wagon. He had many threatening dangers, and has testified many times to the protection of God through this experience. He landed in Hickory County in the year 1864 and began building the home where he lived until about two years before his death. There were only three little Baptist churches within reach of him at that time, and with them he began carrying out his life work. The Baptist showed their appreciation of his efforts and capability by sending him to Theological school which was the preparatory step for him, but his life was spent as a student. He studied to show himself approved and never had time for frivolities. He kept posted on the topics of the day and could talk interestingly and intelligently on the religious doings of the world as well as the political topics. He was at one time a member of the Masonic Order, but not caring for secret organizations, did not attend and was finally dropped from this order. He helped to organize the Old Baptist Association and attended 48 annual meetings of this Association, being the Clerk for 21 years, the Moderator for 20 years, and was Missionary for 7 years. He became a life member of the General Baptist State Association in 1876. He was local manager of the Baptist Publication Society from the year 1878. He was a Pastor, pastoring churches throughout his own country and adjoining counties up until the last few years of his life and preached the gospel for 74 years. He baptised converts into the Baptist denomination in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas and Missouri. He was a strong Debator, and won many debates in the defense of his doctrine. The seed sowed by this man of God in that early days has yielded a bountiful harvest. He freely gave to the relief of the needy, for prohibition, to the building of churches, to Sunday Schools, pastor's salaries, to Missions, district, home state and foreign, to colleges, theological seminaries at home and abroad, to the Orphans Home at St. Louis, and the home for the Aged at Ironton, Mo. He always manifested that Southern hospitality, joyfully inviting all into his home for meals or a nights lodging, free of charge. To quote from his own words, he said: "In all good conscience I have tried to obey the Lord regardless of consequences. I have earnestly contended for the faith which was once delivered to the saints, Jude; 3. 'While passing through the Vally of Baka I have tried to make it a well. Psa. The chief concern of my life has been for the salvation of souls' and the advancement of the kingdome of the Lord Jesus. In my long life I have nothing better and that affords more Peace and Joy than to "Fear God and keep his commandments." The favors and blessings of God have been with me all my life. I'll praise Him world without end. By grace through Faith I am saved and will soon be at rest." G. W. Oliver The Index, 4/17/1924 In Memoriam. On Wednesday p.m. March the 12th, 1924 our hearts were made sad when the message came telling us that G. W. Oliver had passed from months of suffering to the dawn of a new life. He was born in Green County, Indiana, Nov. 14, 1849, and came to Hickory County, Missouri in the year 1866 where he resided most of the time until his death. At the age of 22 he was married to Elizabeth Wright. To this union one child was born, who died in infancy. The mother preceded it a few days. On April 6, 1880 he was married to Annie Mitchell Stephens. To this union eight children were born. Two died in infancy. Those living to mourn his loss are: Mrs. Fred Probst, Ollie Lowden, Lizzie Parrot, Ben Oliver, all of Kansas City; Effie Nelson and Chas Oliver of Cross Timbers, Mo. All of whom were with him when death called him home. His health began failing three years ago while living in Kansas City, Mo. He was impressed with the thought that he could not live much longer and expressed a desire to go back to Cross Timbers to spend the remainder of his life. Since coming back he continued to fall gradually. During the winter of 1922 he suffered from an attack of the flu which left his heart in a very weakened condition and from that time on till death he suffered so much with shortness of breath. During the fall of 1923 in November, he grew so much worse and the Drs. said he could not last long, that his children and a step son Lester Stephens, of Iowa, were called to come at once. But to the glad surprise of all, he gained strength enough in a few weeks, to walk up to town a few times but ere long became so weak he was never able to be out of his room any more. All was done for him that a patient, loving wife and children could do to make his last days comfortable and happy. His neighbors and friends were so kind and assisted in every way they could. Words fail us to express our gratitude. We commend each member of the family, all of his neighbors and friends, to the tender care of Him who doeth all things well and may they have that blessed assurance that some day they shall see him again. About a week previous to his death he said to his wife, "If I could see all the children once more I could die satisfied. They came and were with him till death took him away. The day before he passed away he called all of the children to him and said, "I want you all to be good to your mother." What a comforting thought to his afflicted companion to know his last words were in behalf of her welfare. He was a kind husband and a good father. The home is sad and lonely without him. He was of a jovial disposition at home and abroad. Made friends whereever he went. We shall always have pleasant memories of him. He accepted Christ as his Savior when just a boy but in later years for reasons unknown to the writer he became indifferent about his religious duties but thanks be to our Master who caused him to see the error of his way and in 1910 he united with the Christian church at Cross Timbers, Mo., and was faithful unto death. Funeral services were conducted by Bro. Willet at the Christian church. Where a large crowd of sorrowing relatives, neighbors and friends were present to show their love and respect for him. His body was laid to rest in the Cross Timbers Cemetery to await the call in the resurrection morn. B.W. The Index, 4/17/1924 John W. Robinett The phantom form of death has again entered our community and severed the silver cord of life. By his coming, he has taken from us a cherished husband, father and neighbor, John W. Robinett, age 69 years 3 months and four days. He was born in Monroe County, Tenn., and at the age of 16, came to Missouri settling near Fairfield. A short time afterwards he moved to a farm near the Pleasant Grove Church North and West of Wheatland, Mo. On Jan. 7, 1875 he was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth Eaton. To this union was born five children, Guy, who has preceded him to the better world; Anna, who still resides with her parents near Weaubleau; James, who has also passed to the Great Beyond from which no traveler ever returns; Arley, who has made his home in Kansas City for some months, and Johnnie who now resides in Colton, California. About 12 years ago the family moved to a farm southeast of Weaubleau, where they were living at the time of Mr. Robinett's death. His remains were laid to rest in the Robinett Cemetery near Weaubleau. All was done that skilled physicians and loving hands could do but all to know avail. The Father looked down upon the bed of pain to which he had been confined for six weary weeks, and said "It is enough." Early Wednesday morning his immortal spirit found a home "not made with hands eternal in the heavens." His life of Christian character and his fellowship in the Baptist church which began over thirty years ago, prove to the world that his spirit is "safe in the arms of Jesus." His life was full of cheerfullness, always going about his work with a song on his lips. One of his old favorite songs "On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand" was sung at the funeral services, which were conducted at the home by the writer. His departure leaves behind an aged companion who has shared his joys and sorrows for nearly half a century, two sons with their wives and children, one daughter, two daughters-in-law and a host of other relatives and friends. The entire community will feel the loss of this friend and brother from our midst. J.F.L. The Index, 4/10/1924 Uncle George W. Blackwell Dead. We mentioned last week the matter of Uncle George W. Blackwell being transferred from here to Nevada Hospital, for treatment and news came Friday morning of his death which occurred there that morning about three o'clock. His remains were ordered prepared by an Undertaker at Nevada, were shipped to Weaubleau and arrived at the old home Saturday evening and on Sunday at 11 o'clock his body was brought to the family burial ground at Hermitage cemetery and after a funeral service conducted by Elder J. T. Ferguson were consigned to the grave. His family and relatives and a large crowd of friends were present to pay tribute of respect to the aged citizen who was known to every one in this section.

Mashburn, North Dakota, J.T. and W. E. Mashburn, of Stroud, Oklahoma. There is now living 19 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Mr. Mashburn had been a deacon in the Baptist church for about 40 years. In his last illness which was extended for a period of two years, he manifested the fortitude and patience that are characteristic of an unfailing trust in Christ. Having made such arrangements concerning his earthly affairs as he thought needful Mr. Mashburn spent the last several months in meditation upon things above. Such employment of his time enabled him to have quietness and peacefulness. His loved ones and friends in observing his calm and severe spirit were reminded of the promise "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whos mind is stayed on Thee." Funeral services were conducted in the First Baptist church, Stroud, Oklahoma, November 17th at 2:30 P.M. Rev. C. F. Siler of Tulsa, preached the Funeral sermon, assisted by G. S.

The Index, 5/4/1922 The subject of this sketch Jesse L. Nelson, was born Sept. 16, 1853, died April 17, 1922, aged 68 years, 7 months and 1 day. Was married to Eliza Samples Oct. 8, 1882, and to this union were born 7 children, 5 sons and 2 daughters, all the children were present at the funeral except one son, Richard, of Malta Bend, Mo. Eliza Nelson, his wife, died May 28, 1900, at which time the children were most all small but Bro. Nelson kept them all together till they were grown or married. The subject of this sketch had been in failing health for some time and was at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nancy Ables, when the final summons came--come up higher. Bro. Nelson was converted in what was called the secret prayer meeting at Nemo, and joined the Baptist church of Bethel at Nemo, Hickory County, Missouri, A.D. 1893, and lived a devoted Christian life, being a Deacon in the church of his choice. In the death of Bro. Nelson the community has lost a good citizen, the church a faithfil worker and the children a loving and kind father, as the writer of this has often heard him talk and pray for the spiritual welfare of his children. The body was tenderly laid to rest in the Bethel cemetery beside his loving companion April 18, 1922. Funeral services were conducted by Corneilus Ferguson. The Lord gave and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. Teach us to say in the midst of every ill I will bow to thy sweet will. I'll love obey and trust Thee still. G.W.F. The Index, 3/29/1928 Kenneth Howard Herbert "While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? "But now he is dead, wherefore shall not return to me"--II Samuel, 12:2-3. These words of the Psalmist prompted by the grief incident to giving up his little boy in death, are a source of comfort to parents who have felt the chilling breath of the grim reaper upon their hearts as he goes forth bearing a sweet, pure little flower, like Kenneth Howard Herbert, who passed out of this life February 28, 1928. The parents, with their "suffering little one" were in a St. Joseph hospital several days, making a strong flight against the ravages of disease. In the afternoon of the above date the cord of life gave way, and the spirit took its flight, back to God who had given it to brighten the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lee Herbert, these last six years. What a gracious benevolence God bestowed on a sorrowing world, when He inspired the prophet Isiah to say of the coming of God's Son as the great Shepherd of the sheep; "He shall gather the lambs with His arm and carry them in His bosom." The Presbyterian church at New Point was crowded with sympathizing friends, in a funeral service conducted by the Rev. G. W. Hawley, of St. Joseph, at 1:00 o'clock the afternoon of March 1. The body was laid to rest in the cemetery north-west of New Point. Surviving, beside the parents are two sisters, Helen and Reva, and one brother, John Charles. Many friends will join in sympathy with these bereaved folk, in their hour of sorrow. The Index, 2/29/1928 Melville H.

John Griffen Horrible Affair--Last Tuesday, Mr. Griffen who lived with his widowed mother about six miles south of Tuscumbia, while she was gone to church, (he being at his brother-in-law's when she left,) went home and after staying around awhile built up a large fire, (and it is supposed took a fit he being subject to fits,) locked and barred the door and fell with his head in the fire. When his mother came home after church, she found the door fastened and not hearing any noise, she went over to W. C. Griffen's house and in company with some of the family went back and burst open the door, when an awful sight met their view. Mr. Griffen lay prostrate on the floor stone dead, and his head burned to a cinder, even the flesh was all burned off his neck and shoulders, so that one of his shoulder blades was exposed. Mr. John Griffen was about 30 years old, and would weigh about 200 pounds, and was in good health at the time of his death, (except that he was subject to fits and has been ever since he was a boy), which of late has caused him to be very cross and morose and to try and seclude himself as much as possible. If it were not for the horrible manner in which he met his death, we would venture the suggestion that it will prove a relief to himself, and also to his friends. Gary D. Peterman, 66, Wheatland, passed away April 7, 2017, in Springfield. He was born May 5, 1950, in Osceola, the son of Robert Paul and Wilma Jean (Sutt) Peterman. Gary grew up in Collins. He enjoyed working cattle on the farm with his dad and rabbit, squirrel and quail hunting. He especially enjoyed it when Elzie D. Richter took him quail hunting. Gary was saved at the age of 10 years old and was a member of the Coon Creek Baptist Church, Collins. He attended Collins School all 12 years and was in the final graduating class of Collins High School in 1968. The following years after, Collins School only served elementary to middle school and Linda was in one of the last eighth grade classes to attend Collins. Years later, when Collins became only an elementary school, his daughter, Lindsay, was in fifth grade the year the school closed completely and all classes were moved to Weaubleau. Gary attended Southwest Baptist College at Bolivar for a couple of years and then moved to Dallas, TX and attended the Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science graduating with honors on Aug. 17, 1973. Gary served his apprenticeship at Newcomer’s Funeral Home in Kansas City then in 1980 he and Clarence Hackleman bought the Chicken Mary’s Restaurant that had been fire damaged and remodeled it and built the Hackleman-Peterman Funeral Home of El Dorado Springs. He was always thankful to Hack for starting the business with him and being such a good partner. They served many families in the community and surrounding areas for years. In 1987, Gary sold his half of Hackleman-Peterman Funeral Home to Hack. On April 3, 1982, Gary was united in marriage to Linda Ann Hensley and to this union two children were born, Derek and Lindsay. In August of 1982, Gary and Linda bought the Hathaway Funeral Home of Wheatland. That was when they met a young man that was mowing the lawn, washing cars, and raking leaves for Gilbert Hathaway. To this day, Ronnie Fellers, whom Gary called his “Main Man,” is still doing all his old duties along with his many other funeral director duties. Ronnie also helped Gary at the farm almost on a daily basis. In 1985, Gary and Linda bought land east of town and started construction of the Hathaway-Peterman Funeral Home of Wheatland which was completed in 1986. On Jan. 25, 1984, Derek Ryan was born. Gary was so proud and happy to become a father. In Derek’s first years of life, Derek probably traveled as many miles via four wheeler as car. Gary taught Derek all the things Gary loved to do as a child such as turkey, quail and pheasant hunting along with fishing and raising cattle on the farm. On Aug. 24, 1987, Lindsay Rachelle was born, the first girl born into the Peterman family in over 60 years. Gary was proud to have a girl. Gary taught Lindsay how to fish and how to shoot a gun. They enjoyed shooting at targets for practice together. He loved watching Lindsay play high school athletics and attended as many of her basketball and softball games as he could. On May 2, 2010, just three days before his 60th birthday, Gary became a papa for the first time when Quintin Cole was born to Derek and Chelsea. Two years later they had another child, Clayton Jasper, who was born on March 28, 2012. Gary loved being a papa and teaching the boys about the cattle and farming. Gary enjoyed any activity with the boys from playing games to reading books to drawing pictures. On Saturday mornings Gary would drive out to Derek’s house, pick up him and the boys and they would go to the farm. They always had a good trip to the farm, where they would feed, and admire the bulls, cows and calves. In early October 2016 Gary suffered a severe stroke. Complications from that stroke over the next six months lead to dire health problems. With his family by his side Gary fought bravely against multiple infections and complications. Gary fought his final six months regularly reinforcing to his loved ones that he was starting down the road to recovery. The road and the battle ended for Gary in the early morning hours of April 7, 2017. Gary was a good ole boy. He was a great man, and the greatest husband, father and grandfather that he could be. Services were Tuesday, April 11, at Hathaway-Peterman Chapel with Rev. Kent Parson officiating. Burial was in Robinson Cemetery, Collins, under the direction of Hathaway-Peterman Funeral Home, Wheatland.

He was a young man highly esteemed by those who knew him--unassuming in his manners, of industrious habits, and honest and upright in all his dealings.

She was attacked by the fatigue and labor of waiting around the bed of a sick father, and so violent was the attack that in the short space of 24 hours, she had yielded up her life, and gone to the spirit land. Altho' she has been called hence at an unexpected moment, and when just entering upon the busy stage of life, it should be a source of consolation to her afflicted relatives and friends to know that she enjoyed that religion which lights up even the dark valley of the grave, and takes away the sting of death. She was unobtrusive in her manners, and made friends wherever she became acquainted. But she is gone--and how loud and solemn is the admonition, "Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh."
