Mr. Goddard was married June 14, 1850 to Eliza Jones. To this union, nine children were born, seven on whom are living and attended the funeral and were present during his last sickness and death.

Mr. Goddard came to Missouri in 1856 and settled at White Oak Springs south of Highlandville and during the civil war was in that part of the country made dangerous by such guerrillas as Alf Bolin and gang, and with wagon and team rendered important service to the government in the enrolled militia. He was a resident of the present years. In 1866 he bought the home where he died and lived there continuously for 48 years. Uncle John as he was affectionately called, had as few of the frailties of human nature as fall to the lot of humanity and lived to a ripe old age and left scores of friends and no enemies and all his old neighbors will keep his memory green for many years. It seems to be a premonition that he came to the Republican office a few days before being taken and inquired of the date of the expiration of his paper and when given the date paid up to March 6, remarking that he had taken the paper since its foundation but would need it no longer, so the paper was discontinued the day he was taken sick.

He had been in ill health for some time but, like the most of us, would keep going even though he did not feel like it. He was helping his nephew at the morning work and suffered a cerebral hemorrhage while in the barn loft feeding the cattle. His old dog was the first to know that all was not well with his master and gave the warning to his nephew. He was a good neighbor, everyone had love and respect for him, even the children of the neighborhood thought he was their own “Uncle Joe”. A wise man who loved by everyone, A friend to one and all, A neighbor always ready to help, Has met the Master’s call. He will be sadly missed by his loved ones. For they hated to see him go. And all, even the little children, Will miss their Uncle Joe.”

[Note: Daughter of  James M. & Martha (Jones) Larkins; married  17 Sep 1874 CCM Samuel D. Goddard 1 Jul 1851 - 6 Oct 1928]

Mary E. Larkin was born on June 22, 1858. She was orphaned at the age of five years when she went to make her home with Mr. and Mrs. Jim Doran. At the age of sixteen, she was united in marriage to Sam D. Goddard. To this union five sons were born, four of whom survive, the other dying in infancy. In early womanhood, she united with the Richwood Methodist church and remained faithful in that belief to the end. For over twenty years, she was in poor health, the last seven of which were spent as an invalid. Yet she spent these years patiently and bore her suffering with christian fortitude. She lived her entire life in Christian county. The final call came while she was at the home of a son in Springfield on Wednesday, August 17th. The funeral services were held on Thursday at the Payne cemetery. That  Mrs. Goddard was patient sufferer and awaited her final call with a Christian willingness is shown by the fact that although an invalid for the last seven years, she did not while away her time but spent it in weaving her needle into articles of comfort which her relatives will have and possess for years to remind them of the useful life she lived. She was a kind and friendly neighbor, a devoted and caring mother and to others than her own kin, she willingly shared the blessings which were in her power to bestow. Seldom, if ever, did those upon the caring of her fell, hear her complain. Her every thought was of others and such is that true greatness by which we are to be measured by the Great Judge. The entire community mourns for her, not so much that they would call her back to her bed of affliction, but because they remember her days of usefulness and the hours when her hands and heart earned her reward and greatness of which is written in the Good Book.

Goddard, Samuel D. 1 Jul 1851 - 6 Oct 1928 CCR 25 Oct 1925

Samuel D. Goddard was born on July 1st, 1851 in Morgan county, Tennessee, the eldest son of John H. Goddard and Eliza Jones. He came to Missouri with his parents in the year 1856 and located at White Oak Springs, near Highlandville. They lived there little over a year when they moved within one mile of Cassidy where he grew to manhood and was married to Mary E. Larkins in 1874. With his bride, Mr. Goddard moved to a farm not far from that of his parents. To this union five children were born, one dying in infancy. After rearing their family. Mr. and Mrs. Goddard moved to Ozark in the year 1918 and lived there until the death of the wife more than a year ago. After her death, Mr. Goddard broke up housekeeping and moved to Springfield to live with his son. He also spent some of the time following his wife’s death and preceding his untimely departure with his sons in Canada. It seems the hand of fate played an unfair part in dealing with him and death came as the result of an unfortunate accident in Springfield on Sunday afternoon, October 6th. The funeral services were held on Sunday, October 13th, with Rev. B. Frank West of Springfield officiating, with burial in the Payne cemetery. The deceased was 79 years of age at the time of his death and is survived by the following: four sons, James H, of Springfield; C. C., Floyd C. and Olin E. of Olds, Canada; three sisters, Mrs. Monroe Keltner of Nixa; Mrs. W. K. Gibson of Cassidy and Mrs. Robert E. Wisner of Nixa; two brothers, David of Richards, Mo. And J. M. of Nixa, and Mrs. John S. Taylor of this city who is almost next of kin. Samuel D. Goddard was a home man. The son that gave us the above facts regarding his father’s life stated that he remained at home until 29 years of age and he doesn’t remember a time when his father was away from home unless to care for some sick friend. He was a faithful companion to his afflicted wife until death took her away and no friend can ever say her was not true to his family trust. Samuel D. Goddard was a quiet, self-possessed man and sound in his relationship to his family and neighbor. He confessed his faith many years before his death and had identified himself with the Methodist church. Although he may not have been as active in community affairs as some, yet he filled his place well and he will be greatly missed from this community which had learned to known him and to love him

[Note: Daughter of T. L. “Thad” & Laura (Clark) Glossip]

Last Thursday evening shortly after the Republican was off the press, one of those shocking accidents that jar the nerves of a whole community occurred at the home of Thad Glossup, in the south west part of town, when little Gertrude Glossup, a six-year-old daughter of Mr. Glossup was run over by a wagon driven by the father with two tons of coal. The hind wheel passing up the left side of the body, cleaving pieces of flesh from the lower limb, crushing the side and head as it passed over the prostate form. As near as can be ascertained, Mr. Glossup, who was hauling coal for the mines, had driven home with the load to be that far on his trip the next morning, when the children climbed on the load when he stopped. When he started up again, he told them all to get off and thinking they had done so, started when the screams of an older daughter caused him to stop the team when it was found the little one had been run over and almost instantly killed as she gave only a few gasps after being picked up by her father, who was overcome with grief when he realized what had happened. Drs. Robertson and Bruton were called but no aid could be given. Funeral services were held Saturday, conducted by Rev., W. T. Holbert and the little unfortunate laid to rest in the city cemetery. The family have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.

Last week, we lost one of the outstanding citizens of our area. Fred Glauser, who had for so many years, had been the neighborhood blacksmith, A man who had pride in his work, and who was always afraid of over charging for his work. His word has never been questioned by anyone who knew him. He will be missed by all who knew him. He had been in very poor health for the past two or three years. He just went to sleep on Tuesday night and went so peacefully never waking up. - Chestnutridge News, By Kathleen Stewart

[note: quarter page ad with anvil, blacksmith shop sign and pictures of blacksmith tools}

The Blacksmith was much more than a mere shoer of horses. The true spirit of the man was his role of horse psychologist, purveyor of hardware and town handyman. He worked at his anvil hammering out tools, hinges, pots and pans, hardware and wagon springs. The “smithy” repaired and mended everything of iron that broke or wore out. The blacksmith’s place in the community was an important one. Every member of the village was his customer: his shop provided a gathering place for talk and gossip by the men and one of mystery and excitement for the children.

…of earth, sea and sky. But now it other actions are unnoticed for death has entered our home and snatched away our loving mother, which causes the sky to be curtained with somber clouds and our house overshadowed in sorrow and the world seem empty and cheerless. And in our hearts there is an aching void. But there is one great consolation. We know our mother is at rest in the hands of a just God; yet are eyes blind with tears, as the parting scene comes to memory. The day we bent over the open coffin looking at the folded hands that we would never clasp in this life. For we know that a dear mother, with this one, is forever at an end, and that she has entered the joys of the Lord. Therefore, we weep not as we had no hope. In the light of the scriptures we must submit to Him who doeth all things well, for we cannot call his wisdom into question.  Mag McCauley

Nixa Shootout Kills One Man

An inquest, investigating the death of a 43-year-old man who was fatally wounded in a shootout with police Saturday afternoon was held Wednesday evening at 7:00 in the Christian County Courthouse. The incident happened shortly before 3:00 p.m. a the home of the victim’s ex-wife at 704 Lone Oak, Nixa. Answering a disturbance call, Nixa Police Chief Jack Savage found Theurel L. Girton outside the home armed with a 30-30 and a 44 magnum. Savage then called for assistance from the Highway Patrol and the Sheriff’s office. According to Savage, Clinton (SIC) said he was going to kill his ex-wife and talking to him did no good. Reports indicate several shots were fired. One shot from Savage’s 30 caliber revolver struck Girton in the forehead, knocking him to the ground. However, Girton managed to get to his feet and run to the back of the house. Here, he was confronted by Patrolman J. L. Stewart and Bill Ramsey who is a police officer in Ozark. Asked to throw down his weapons, he apparently refused and fired at them. Ramsey drew his 12-gauge shotgun and shot Girton. The shotgun blast was apparently the fatal blast. Ramsey is also a reserve officer in Nixa where he lives. Girton’s body was taken to Adams Funeral Home in Ozark. An autopsy was performed Sunday. Christian County Coroner Dean Adams said the results would be released at the inquest Wednesday night. Savage has relieved himself of duty until after the investigation. Officer Edward Kocher will be acting Police Chief in the meantime. Girton had a history of mental problems. Christian County Sheriff said he had taken Girton to the hospital for mental treatment before. Kocher said “he believed four of the five children were home at the time and Girton was waiting for the fifth to return as he planned to kill them all.”

Givan, Bluford H., Deacon 15 Aug 1833 - 29 Dec 1903 CCR 14 Jan 1904

[Note: married 3 Feb 1858 Cynthia Jane Dodd 1841 - 16 Jan 1904; name on tombstone Bluford Givan]

Deacon Buford Givan was born August 15, 1833, died in Springfield, Mo. Dec. 29, 1903 of pneumonia after a brief illness. Br. Givan was converted in August, 1873 and united with the Baptist church, soon after which he was chosen and ordained as a Deacon of the same church. Was married to Miss Cynthia Dodd Feby. 4, 1859. To this union there was born eight children, six of whom are still living. Uncle Buford, as he was familiarly called, was one of those rare characters who are sorely missed when taken from us. He was possessed of indomitable strength of character and unflinching loyalty to what he esteemed to be right. He was true and loyal to the church. He was animated with a holy zeal. He was a loving, tender, faithful, compassionate, zealous husband and father. When the end came it found him as he had lived - ready and patiently waiting, and he quietly fell asleep in Jesus. The funeral was held at the Baptist church in Ozark, conducted by writer, after which the body was laid away in the he Oddfellow’s cemetery nearby, there to await the glory of the resurrection morn. May the Lord comfort all the bereaved loved ones , and especially the heartbroken, lonely companion. “And now, dear father, rest in peach, Since from earth’s toils thou hast won release. May the sweet fruition of thy hope and joy Be with thee, where death cannot destroy. The wonted place in home so dear, As footprints as plain doth yet appear, Thy counsels, precepts, wise and true all inspire us with a deeper, clearer view.  W. C. Armstrong.

AND

Givan, Cynthia Jane (Dodd) 6 Jan 1841 - 17 Jan 1904 CCR 4 Feb 1904

Mrs. Cynthia Dodd Givan was born in Tennessee January 6, 1841, died in Springfield, Mo. January 17, 1904. Was converted and baptized into the fellowship of the Baptist church at Salem, Tennessee in 1867, married to Bluford Givan February 3, 1858, with whom she came to Missouri and located in the neighborhood of Prospect church in Christian county. She and her husband were faithful members of Prospect church for a number of years, but after the reorganization of the church in Ozark, they removed their membership to the town church, of which they remained devoted members to the time of their death. So strong and blessed was the domestic union that even death seemed no to possess the power to separate her from the loving companion as he had gone over the dark river but nineteen days before that time. Sister Givan had proven herself a true christian character, a helpful and devoted character, a helpful and devoted companion and most affectionate and tender mother. She had many friends. This almost at the same time, father and mother are taken and the six remaining children are enshrouded in a pall of bereavement, but they “do not sorrow as those who have no hope.” Many sympathies are extended in this dark hour. Let hope rise in your souls and battle on awhile longer. Funeral services were held in the Baptist church at Ozark by the writer, after which her mortal remains were laid beside her husband in the beautiful cemetery near by the town, there to await the future. May our setting sun be as clear and serene as was this handmaid of the Lord. May the Lord give sustaining grace.  W. C. Armstrong.

In memory of little Valeska Luvern Givan, born February 5, 1916 and died January 1, 1920, aged 3 years, 10 months and 26 days. While this is a beautiful world, our sky is hung with clouded curtains, for without the presence of the dear, little one who has gone before, the world seems more empty and in our hearts there is an aching void. But our great consolation is the sweet realization that our loved one is at peace, the one upon whom we lavished our affections is now in that land where the weary are at rest. As we looked at the precious little form, gazing up on the closed eyes in which we will never see our image reflected, our tears fall as we know our earthly companionship with this one is at an end. We know our heart’s idol has heard the words of our heavenly father and we know our treasure is in heaven. The little body will never more be racked with pain. It will only be a little while until we will cross over and join her on the golden shore where she is now standing beckoning with those beautiful little hands, saying “loved ones, come this way.” Dear little hands, we miss you so: All thought the day where ever we go; All through the night how lonely it seems For no little hands wake me out of my dreams. We miss thee all through the weary hours; W miss thee, as other do sunshine and flowers; Day time or night time where ever we go. Dear little hand, we miss thee so. - By Grandmother.

Together again forever! Verna Marie Glasscock, 93, slipped away peacefully into the arms of Jesus and joined her beloved husband, Harold, in Heaven shortly before noon on Tuesday, April 26, 2005. Her life's journey was a long and winding one from her birthplace of Laquey, Mo., through her youth, her profession as a seamstress, and the most joyful time of her life in 68 years of marriage filled with trust, hope, and love. She enjoyed being a wife, homemaker, and a devoted mother to her only child. Being a grandmother and great grandmother to the family presented to her completed the desires of her heart. Since 2003 she fought a lengthy illness and a battle with Alzheimer's. Verna is survived by her daughter, Tammy Felton, and son-in-law, Dennis Felton, of Ozark, Mo.; five grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and friends too numerous to count. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold; three sisters; and one brother. Verna will be remembered as one of the most loving, giving people you could ever dream to know. A host of family members treasure the precious memories of her sparkling smile, her quick wit, and her sweet spirit. Like everything else, Harold Glasscock chose during his life, Verna Marie was "First Class." It was Verna's wish that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to Children's Miracle Network for the annual Sing! Sing! Sing! benefit each Spring. Special gratitude is extended to the doctors, administration, and staff of Ozark Nursing and Care for their skills, understanding, and concern for Verna.

Area Paralyzed By Heavy Snow

Brings Death To Ozark Man

A snow storm of near records proportions, accompanied by high winds which caused drifts as high as seven feet in some areas, paralyzed traffic in the southwest Missouri area Monday night and brought death to an Ozark man, Trying to shovel a path out of his driveway apparently caused a fatal heart attack for Raymond W. Glaubitz, 57, at his home in southeast Ozark. The tragedy at 3:15 Tuesday afternoon, was observed by Mrs. Glaubitz, as she watched apprehensively from a window in their home, in a hilly area where the drifting was heavy. A World War II veteran and a retired construction worker, Mr. Glaubitz had a known heart condition and had been under physician’s treatment the past two years, The Glaubitz family moved here from Nebraska 14 years ago. Survivors include his wife, Gladys; two sons, Sgt. W. C. Glaubitz, Camp Lejeune, N. C. and Sgt. R. W. Glaubitz, Fort Knox, Ky.; three brothers, Francis E., Ashland and Bernard and Donald of Republic; and two grandchildren. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Friday in the Adams Chapel in Ozark with the Rev. Allen Harrison officiating. Burial will be in National Cemetery, Springfield. The casket will remain open only until time of the services. The blizzard, which came in about mid-afternoon Monday and continued until mid-afternoon Tuesday, brought 11 to 12 inches of snow to the Ozarks, the heaviest snow since 1951. Most factories in the area, including Fasco in Ozark, were out of operation Tuesday, but almost all resumed work Wednesday. For the first time in modern memory, the Springfield schools were closed, including all four colleges and the technical and parochial schools. Most elementary and high schools remained closed Wednesday. A notable exception was the Ozark school system which returned to “business as usual” after closing Tuesday. Supt. Clyde W. McConnell reported about a 65 per cent attendance Wednesday morning. Ozark had no mail services Tuesday and a light one Wednesday, which had hampered publication of this newspaper this week. A warming trend was apparent Wednesday after a six-degree reading early Wednesday morning. However, it will take several days of sunshine and warm weather to dissipate the drifts which have clogged the rural roads. One notable effect of the storm in Ozark was the collapse of the dock awning in the Ozarks Farmers Exchange. The mishap was caused by the burden of wet snow. The debris was removed Wednesday morning.

[Note: Daughter of Fred & ? ( ) Weuthrich; married John Glauser 2 May 1858 - 11 Apr 1942]

Elise Weuthrich Glauser was born in Switzerland on Sept. 8, 1861, and passed into the beyond at her home in Ozark at 8:55 p.m. on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 3, 1933. She was married to John Glauser on July 26, 1880, at Beverly, West Virginia. After a short residence in West Virginia and Texas, they settled in Christian county, near Chestnutridge, where they engaged in merchandising and farming. In 1920 they bought property in Ozark and since that time have made this city their home. Ten children blessed this union, one of whom, a daughter, died in infancy. Three other daughters preceded their mother in death after they had grown to womanhood. Those who survive are the husband, John Glauser; one daughter, Mrs. B.J. Murphy of Kansas City; five sons, Fred of Chestnutridge, Ernest of Ozark, Rudolph of Overland Park, Kan., Hans of Kansas City and Otto of Chicago. Nine grandchildren and one sister, who lives in Switzerland, also survive. Elise Weuthrich was confirmed in the Evangelical church at the age of 16 years and lived a steadfast, consistent and devoted Christian life. Funeral services were held today, Thursday, Oct. 5, at 2:30 o'clock at the T.B. Chaffin Funeral Home, with Rev. Ross C. Carter officiating, with burial in the City cemetery. As shown by the confirmation of her faith at the early age of 16 years, the environment of her childhood were such as one can only find in the beauty of the land of her birth. These environments of country and home undoubtedly led her into this early confession and so deep-seated did they become in her being as a child and youth that they became a part of her life. She was of the old school of love, esteem and devotion and we find these outstanding traits weaving themselves about and having their influence upon her home, her neighbor and her friend. Again we see her character manifested in her devotion to her flowers. Since the passing of this good and noble woman, we have heard it expressed that each summer when the poppies bloom in many an Ozark yard, the kind and loving face of Mrs. Glauser will be seen in every colored flower. The late night light in any neighbor’s home was a signal watched closely for this good friend and neighbor feared her help might be needed around a bed of illness. She loved the country of her choice and when the great World War came on, three of her stalwart sons answered the call to arms. She suffered the pangs of fear but smothered them with the inward spirit of love of country, as two of these sons saw service overseas. As a great human family we live beneath the same sky and sun and moon and starts, and yet around the threshold and beneath the housetop that closer and nearer Divine love of family ties as its being. And in the mily ties has its being. And in the Beautiful because a mother and father taught a love of deep devotion and no wonder a sorrowing daughter says “Nobody knows how much I love my mother.” And so in the passing of this good woman, Ozark suffers another deep-felt loss, those who live near an esteemed family and neighbor and the husband and family a dearly devoted wife and mother. Her sweetness was of that type that now is fast passing away and well it is that it should be held in sweet memory.

Nixans face manslaughter charges

Chris J. Cluck Headliner News

            A Nixa man and woman are facing involuntary manslaughter charges in connection to the 2007 death of a man who died from diabetic shock while in their care.

            James Harvill and Donna K. Watts are each charged with a class D Felony second-degree involuntary manslaughter in the June 2, 2007 death of Edgar Gilmore.

            A probably cause statement filed by Christian County Sheriff’s Deputy D. J. Outhouse says Gilmore was in Watts; and Harvill’s care at his residence at 113 Yorkshire St. on May 26, 2007 when the victim went into diabetic shock because of low blood sugar and the two defendants did not call for medical help for six hours.

            Watts allegedly tried unsuccessfully to wake Gilmore that day at 8:30 a.m. and told investigators he was having trouble with his diabetes for two days before the incident.

            “Donna stated that she couldn’t wake Edgar that morning and that she believed that something was wrong with him,: the statement said.

            Watts then allegedly called Harvill to stay with Gilmore while she went to an estate sale, the statement said. Harvill told investigators that Gilmore was unresponsive and felt there was something wrong with him but did not call for help.

            Watts returned at 2:30 p.m. and called 911, the statement said.

            “An earlier intervention might have helped save this patient,” Dr. El Fatmi told investigators in Outhouse’s statement. “His family and friends should have been alerted to his prolonged unresponsive status and called for help.”

            Watts is also charged with a class C stealing for allegedly stealing $1,000 from Gilmore

His platoon was then able to advance and secured its objective. Shortly after his platoon's objective was secured, Sgt. Gilbert again personally assaulted another enemy automatic weapon position on a nearby hill which was holding up the advance of an adjacent company. His advance to this position was across approximately one hundred yards of a. narrow ridge exposed to enemy small arms fire from nearby emplacements and was subject, at any moment, to discovery by the enemy in the position which he was approaching."

Gideon, Pallas Hathaway 11 Oct 1921 - 2 Aug 1930 CCR 7 Aug 1930

[Note: Son of Claude E. & Ruda Georgia (Logan) Gideon]

The pitcher may be broken at the well and the flowers trampled underfoot in the wildwood; the rippling streamlet is often disturbed as it plays among the native hills; and the song of the bird is hushed by the piercing arrow. A happy thought is dispelled by a gust of sorrow, and the happy, childish play is quieted by the finger of death. Just at that hour when hopes run high, when talent begins to bloom, when thoughtfulness beams from childish eyes, Death entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Gideon and plucks from their household a little son, aged 8 years. Just when the sweetness of his little many ways were beginning to brighten a spot here and expel a gloom there; just at that age when baby ways were passing into memory and attempts to be “Mamma’s little man” were frequent. You know the time we mean when we say “just when.” You know how you would have missed this hours had “Little Boy Blue” been suddenly taken away. And so Mr. and Mrs. Claude Gideon dwell in an hour of sadness, but they may rest assured the sympathy of the community is sincerely extended to them. Pallas Hathaway Gideon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Gideon, died at the Ozark Sanitarium Sunday, Aug. 3, aged 8 years, 9 months and 22 days. He leaves his father, mother, one sister and two brothers, besides other relatives, to mourn his departure. Funeral services were held Tuesday, Aug. 5, at 2:30 p.m. at the Christina church in Ozark by Rev. Ross Carter with burial in the Ozark cemetery under direction of T.B. Chaffin of Ozark.

JUDGE GIDEON IS DEAD AFTER LONG ILLNESS

First Mayor Under Commission Form of Government and Widely Known Resident To Be Buried Today

James J. Gideon, widely known resident of Springfield and first mayor under the commission form of government, died of complication of diseases early Sunday morning at the family residence, 766 East Elm Street. Funeral services will be held at 3 o’clock this afternoon at the residence in charge of Rev. C. H. Briggs, presiding elder of the Springfield district of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and widely known in Masonic circles, in which order the decedent was a member. Burial will be in Hazelwood cemetery under the supervision of the Paxon Undertaking Company. Born Near Springfield. Judge Gideon was born a short distance south of Springfield in 1846. Shortly after his birth, the family moved to that part of Taney County which now is known as Christian County. The decedent spent his boyhood and youth in that county, except for the time he was in the Union Army in the company of Captain Jackson Ball. William Gideon, the father, was shot and killed by guerillas in his home and in the presence of his wife and family in 1863. Immediately thereafter, young Gideon, then 17 years old, enlisted. He served throughout the remainder of the war. It is said that Judge Gideon received the sobriquet of “Sleepy Jim” by which he was widely known, during his army days by reason of the fact that he acquired the knack of sleeping in the saddle. At the close of the war, the soldier returned to his house in Christian County and took up the study of law. Shortly after his return, he married throughout the remainder of the war former commander. Elected To Office Soon after he was admitted to the bar, he was elected prosecuting attorney of Christian County, and held that office four terms. He also served two terms as a member of the Missouri legislature from Christian County and one term as a member of the state senate. Judge Gideon moved to Springfield in 1885 and has made his home there continuously since that time. Soon after coming to Springfield, he was elected prosecuting attorney of Greene County. He held that office one term,. Later, he was elected judge of the Greene county criminal court. In the early days of that court, sessions were held in a building on Commercial Street and in the upper portion of the jail building. Following his retirement from the bench, Judge Gideon took little active interest in politics until the commission form of government was proposes. He became immediately an ardent opponent of the move and fought it as strongly as he could. When the commission form of government was adopted, however, he became a candidate for the office of mayor and was elected, being the first man to serve as the city’s executive under the commission form. Judge Gideon was known as one of the shrewdest politicians in the county. A member of the local bar who had known the judge intimately for years said yesterday that he regarded him as a man who was firm in his conviction to duty as he saw it, who was fearless in the discharge of his duty, and who was never touched by corruption in his office. The Springfield Bar Association will attend the funeral in a body, meeting at the Chamber of Commerce at 2:30 o’clock. The courthouse and city hall will close at 2:30 o’clock and remain closed for the rest of the day. Perry T. Allen, president of the Bar association has appointed the following committee to draw up resolutions of tribute to Judge Gideon: Judge A. W. Lincoln, Judge Alfred Page, Judge Arch A. Johnson, former Senator Frank M. McDavid, and Fred A. Moon. Judge and Mrs. Gideon were the parents of five children, but one of whom, Fred Gideon, survives. The decedent is survived by a sister, Mrs. Matilda Hammond of Christian County and the following brothers, Dr. John M. Gideon and M. V. Gideon, both of Springfield, Frank Gideon of Florida, formerly land commission at Washington and W. W. Gideon of Washington state, formerly city marshal of Springfield. --Springfield Republican

Born early in the last century, she had seen many changes, both locally and nationally. She gave her husband to the cause of the Union, and the service of three of her sons, J. J., T. J. and F. M. She died full of years, measuring life’s span to its full extent - more than three score years and ten. She reared, with all the untold difficulties of widowhood, a large family, the names of its sons especially being land marks in the upbuilding of Southwest Missouri. And thus the good woman died - full of years and with the vast experience of three quarters of a century, trusting in God. And thus may all the pioneer mothers be laid to sleep.

Mrs. Alex Gibson Killed In Accident

Former Christian County Woman Met Death When Train Demolished Her Auto.

Relatives in Christian County of Mrs. Alexander Gibson received word last Friday of her accidental death when the car she was driving was struck by a Frisco train near Independence, Kansas. The following is an account of the accident taken from the Independence Daily Reporter: Late word from the hospital in Neodesha is to the effect that little June Gibson, the 8-year old girl who was so seriously injured yesterday when her mother, Mrs. Alexander Gibson was killed, has a good chance to recover. Members of the Gibson families form here have been at the hospital and the family home near Neodesha, much of the time since the accident of yesterday. The accident happened just before noon Thursday, July 28, as Mrs. Gibson and her three little girls were on their way home from Neodesha, where they had been to do some trading. Their car stalled on the Frisco crossing at the south edge of town, on Fifth street and was struck by the west bound Frisco train No. 305. Mrs. Gibson was killed instantly and the younger girl, June, 8 years, was seriously injured. The other two girls, Marie 10 and Letha, 15, jumped when they realized their danger and were not injured in the least. The undertaker who was called to the scene of the accident to take charge of the body of Mrs. Gibson, said death was likely instantaneous, and the neck was snapped. Otherwise, the body was not badly bruised or cut. The care, a practically new Ford sedan, is a total wreck, It was dragged a distance of about 25 years by the engine and then dumped into a ditch. The train in charge of Al Geister engineer, and T. M. Weidman, conductor, was running slightly late. Every effort was made to stop the train and avert the accident, but that was impossible. As nearly as can be learned from those near and the one witness of the tragedy, Mrs. Gibson drove the car onto the tracks, where the engine was killed or the car became stalled by some unknown reason. Neighbors, hearing the trainmen set the brakes, rushed to the scene of the accident. As far as has been learned, D. C. Bryson, who was cutting weeds on the highway was the only witness to the tragedy. The two uninjured girls were taken to the Athelm home nearby and given comfort by neighbors. The injured girl was rushed to the Wilson county hospital where it was found that she was bruised and cut from head to foot and had suffered from loss of blood. She was conscious, however, when picked up and remained conscious during the afternoon. The engineer said he saw Mrs. Gibson drive on the track, saw the two girls jump and saw Mrs. Gibson and the smaller girl making frantic efforts to get out of the car, but they could not do it in time to save themselves, before the crash came. The tragedy becomes all the more poignant when it is known that the accident leaves seven children motherless. In addition to the three girls in the car, there are four boys in the family: Truman, who still lived at home, Billy of Buffville and Frank and Earl who work at the Gibson-Smith Oil and Gas company in this city. - - - Rosa Bloomer-Gibson was born May 7, 1882, at Mount Vernon, Kentucky, and with her parents moved at an early age to Sparta, Mo. Where she was united in marriage November 19, 1904 to Alexander A. Gibson. Soon after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Gibson came to this vicinity, where they raised their family of seven children: Earl, 17, Independence, Billy, 19, Letha, 15, Truman, 12, Marie, 10 and June, 8, all of the home address. These children, with a bereaved husband, Alexander A. Gibson, survive and mourn the untimely and tragic death of Mrs. Gibson. The sisters surviving are: Mrs. William Kopenhaver, of near Fort Worth, Texas; Mrs. Laura Dixon and Mrs. Lida Gueg of Detroit. The brothers are Ed Bloom of near Fort Worth; and William and Charles Bloomer of Trent, Florida. Of the brothers and sisters, only Mrs. Kopenhaver was able to come to Nedosha for the funeral. At the time of her death, Mrs. Gibson was 45 years, 2 months and 24 days. Her death occurred shortly before noon on July 28, when she and three of her children, Letha, Marie and June, were returning to their home on the Kirwin farm, after having come to town to do some shopping. Their Ford car was struck by a westbound Frisco passenger train at a grade crossing at the edge of the city. A girl of seventeen years, Mrs. Gibson united with the Baptist church. In that faith, she lived the remainder of her life, being a member of the First Baptist church of this city for many years. Mrs. Gibson was known as a fond and loving mother who devoted her life to the proper rearing of her children. She was, as well, a wonderful wife and companion to Mr. Gibson, who was so devoted to her in life. As a neighbor and a friend, Mrs. Gibson was equally true and trusted. She numbered among her friends scores of residents of this community and surrounding county. Mrs. Gibson’s final resting place will be Mount Hope cemetery in Independence where she was buried Sunday afternoon, July 31, following services at the first Baptist church in Neodesha at 2 p.m.

In Loving Remembrance

Jesus visited our happy home Tuesday night January 14, 1919 and took away our darling baby, Sanford . . . And, oh, that sweet little face that was so good and so much comfort for us, now lives with the good, the pure and true. His little life was short, just 11 months and 18 days. We prayed for his little life day and night all through his sickness, but he was too good to stay here. God knows best and saw fit to take him. Oh. how we miss him, but the time is swiftly passing, when we can go to see him. He leaves his father and mother, two sisters and three brothers to mourn his loss and when Jesus calls on us we can be ready to go and see him.  Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Gibson

Body of Suicide Found in Cave

Sheriff makes Lengthy Crawl

The body of a 64-year-old Highlandville man was found 100 feet back southeast of Highlandville shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday. The Christian County coroner said the man was the victim of an overdose of sleeping pills. Searchers had been seeking Adron Clarence Gideon since he left his small motel room about 3 p.m. Tuesday after telling friends he was going to a cave “where nobody will ever find me.” Coroner Dean Harris said Gideon had been in ill health and had indicated to friends that he intended to take his own life. Harris said that four days ago Gideon had taken seven sleeping pills but suffered no lasting ill effects. Oscar Henry, with whom Gideon lived, told authorities he left carrying a 12-gauge shotgun and one shell. He also carried a blanket with him. When he failed to return home, a search party was organized but early efforts to locate Gideon failed. Sheriff Jack Monger said one of the searchers remembered showing Gideon the cave about a year ago, so the hunt for the man was centered in that area. It is located near the home of Jim and Jake Davis. The cave opening is about three feet wide. The sheriff said he crawled into the cave about 25 feet and found a cap. He continued crawling about 75 feet and found the body. The sheriff said Gideon had rigged the shotgun with the barrel pointed toward his body. A string was tied to the trigger, and a rock was tied to the other end. It was believed that if the pills had failed, the man intended throwing the rock to fire the gun. Officers said the cave is so narrow inside, it is impossible for a man to turn around. A rope had to be attached to the body, and then it was pulled from the cavern. A search of Gideon’s pockets revealed a full bottle of sleeping pills and another bottle which was half emptied, authorities said. Coroner Harris said no inquest is planned. The body was taken to Chaffin Funeral Home in Ozark.

Gideon, Estel Junior 28 Feb 1933 - 4 Nov 1937

[Note: Son of Orville Francis & Fern G.( ) Gideon]

Estel Junior Gideon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Orville Gideon of Nixa, Mo., was born February 28, 1933 and departed this life November 4, 1937, age four years, eight months and five days at Springfield Baptist hospital after a brief illness. Junior was taken suddenly ill and all that loving hands and medical aid could do failed and the grim reaper stepped in and took the darling of the home, leaving the parents and one sister, Juanita with broken hearts. He was sweet, loving child and much loved by all who knew him. His going leaves a sorrow that only death can leave. He was laid to rest at McConnell cemetery, Thursday, November 5th, attended by many relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Roscoe Harding in the home of his grandfather that he loved so well and spent so many of his happy hours with. Wilbur Maples funeral home of Clever, Mo. was in charge. Our darling has departed, While we tarry broken hearted; In the dreary empty home. He has ended life’s brief story, And has reached his home in glory, Over death victorious. – His Aunt.
