Died at his home 1/4 mile east of Sparta, Christian county, Mo. John Reed Simpson, Thursday night at 9 o’clock Aug 21st ‘07. John Reed Simpson was born Nov. 23, 1839 in Chillicothe, Ohio, making his age 77 years, 9 months, 2 days at the time of his death. When the clouds of war were hanging thick over the states and finally burst over a divided nation and a call to arms was made, he in the sixties, volunteered in the 109 Inf. Inf. in which he served his country until 61 at Millsprings, Ky., he received a wound which resulted in an honorable discharge. But after this when a call was made for volunteers, he re-enlisted and served to the close of the war. He was twice married. Of the first, this writer knows but little, as there were no children born of the first marriage. His second marriage was to a daughter of old Uncle John Keltner, the widow Bledsoe who lived two miles north of Nixa. Of this union was born a son, who is 15 years old. I first met Mr. Simpson at Highlandville Christian county, Mo. 19 years ago. I was preaching there at that time, He, having been reared by the Presbyterians, was a member of the said church. He became convinced of the truth, came forward, made his confession and was buried with his Lord in baptism and was raised to walk in the newness of life. After this, he lived in or near Republic then at Bruno at last near Sparta where he died. We have lost an honorable citizen,, a loving husband, a kind father, a brave soldier,  a Christian gentleman, Sister Simpson wished to express her thanks to the many friends for their acts of kindness and sympathy shown during his long affliction. May it be ours to live and die in the hope of a better life. T. A. Foster

AND

Sims, Eva Lee 6 Nov 1905 - 24 Apr 1909 CCR 27 May 1909 p1

We had a little treasure once. She was our joy and pride, We loved her, oh perhaps too well, For soon she slept and died All is dark within our dwelling. Lonely are our hearts today. For the one we loved so dearly Has forever passed away. Eva Lee Sims, the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Sims was born Nov. 9, 1909. Her sickness was short, and but a few hours after they played with her the last time, her playmates were told Eva Lee was gone. She was a kind and affectionate child ever ready to give way to the wishes of others. To her small playmates as well as to all who knew her, her memory will be pleasant and her cheerful disposition is missed in her home, in her play house, but she will not be missed in Heaven., The home is sadder and lonelier because of her absence, but Heaven is that much brighter by her presence. Knowing that God’s way if the best and knowing the joy and comfort Eva Lee was to this world, we are brought to know that her mission must be grand since she had been called to a better. So trusting to God, we can know Another little lamb had gone To dwell with him who gave Another little darling babe Is sheltered in the grave God needed one more angel child Amidst the shining band And so he bent with loving smile and clasped our darling’s hand,
