LOVING MEMORIES

Your gentle face and patient smile with sadness we recall

You had a kindly word for each and died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and still the heart that loved us well and true

And bitter was the trial to part from one so good as you.

You are not forgotten, loved one, nor will you ever be.

As long as life and memory last, we will remember thee.

We miss you now, our hearts are sore.

As time goes by, we miss you more.

Your loving smile . . . your gentle face.

No one can fill your vacant place

Granville Joshua Vaughan was born on Sept. 16, 1862, near Ozark, and passed away at his home just southeast of town on Saturday, Dec. 25, 1937, Christmas Day, after an illness of several months. He had reached the age of 75 years, two months and nine days. He was united in marriage to Mrs. Mattie Ramsey Rule in 1908. To this union two children were born, Mr. Ashley Vaughan of Ozark and Mrs. Arthur Roper of Springfield. Besides the son and daughter, and widow, he is survived by two grandchildren, Kenneth Vaughan of Ozark and Carol Roper of Springfield and by one brother, Luther, of Ozark and three sisters, Mrs. Flora Hurst, Mrs. Lina Given and Mrs. Ellen Clark. He was an active worker in the Masonic Lodge for more than 40 years and has served the Fifty-fourth Masonic District of Missouri as deputy grand master and Lecturer for 36 consecutive years. He was a member of the school board of the Ozark Consolidated School for a long term, having been reelected to that position several times. He was a senior deacon in the Ozark Baptist church at the time of his death and had served in the capacity for a long number of years. At the time of his death he held the oldest membership in the church, becoming affiliated with it in 1895. He was active in church affairs until incapacitated by illness. He was an honest and worthy citizen, sincere in his dealings with his fellowman. He was a kind husband, a good father, neighbor and friend and will be missed in every capacity in which he served and by his many friends throughout this section of the state. He will be deeply missed by the Masonic Lodge in which he took keen interest. He had probably conducted more Masonic funerals while serving in his official position as the District Deputy Grand Master and Lecturer than any other person performing like service. Funeral services were held Monday, Dec. 27, 1937, at 1:30 p.m. in the Community Hall in Ozark with Rev. Lewis M. Hale, pastor of the First Baptist church, Springfield, officiating, assisted by Rev. Charles C. Maples, pastor of the Ozark Baptist church. Burial was made in the Vaughan cemetery southeast of Ozark under the direction of the B.C. Klepper Funeral Home. Masonic services were said at the grave, with more than 100 Mason in attendance. Masons from all over this section of this state were present. Pallbearers were Lige Reed, Bob Rathbun, W.F. Woods, F.A. Ledbetter, Claude Crenshaw, and Jim Anderson. A group composed of Charles C. Maples, Bruce Maples, Glenn Maples, Mrs. D.C. Leonard, Mrs. Frank B. Hanks, Wendell Leonard and Mr. D.C. Leonard sang during the services. Brother Josh, as he was familiarly known by the Masons of this district and more especially by the members of the Friends Lodge No. 352, A.F.&A.M. of Ozark, was one of the most faithful of all Masons. He was known for his ability to confer the work in any and all degrees and the number of men who have sat at his feet during their pilgrimage into the mysteries of Masonry run into the hundreds. He lived devotedly for his Lodge and to and for the high and noble principles of brotherhood for which it stands.

To Masons Generally of the Fifty-fourth Masonic District of the State of Missouri, and more particularly to the Worshipful Master, Wardens and Brethren of Friend Lodge, No. 352, A.F.&A.M. of Ozark, Missouri. Whereas, it has pleased the Great Architect of the Universe to call from these earthly labors to eternal refreshment, peace and contentment, our beloved Brother, Granville Joshua Vaughan, who was born near Ozark, Missouri, on Sept. 16, 1862, and claimed by death on Dec. 25, 1937. Therefore, be it resolved that the passing of Brother Vaughan, who was raised a Master Mason on Aug. 14,1897, by the Lodge to which these resolutions are particularly addressed and in which he continued in membership until death, that Friend Lodge No. 352, A.F.&A.M. of Ozark, Missouri, has lost a highly esteemed and distinguished member and the Fifty-fourth Masonic District a worthy servant and officer. For more than 40 years, Brother Vaughan had served Friend Lodge No. 352, A.F.&A.M. as an interested, learned and instructive Mason and for 36 consecutive years had served the Fifty-fourth Masonic District of Missouri as Deputy Grand Master and Lecturer. He was a Mason of unique and almost unequaled ability, faithful to his duty and his oath, sincere in his effort and untiring in his devotion. He was not only an honest and enlightened Mason, but was a citizen interested in church and school and a father devoted and loving to wife and children. The high esteem in which Brother Vaughan was held by Masonry was exemplified on Monday, Dec. 27, 1937, when he was laid to rest with Masonic services with more than 100 Masons from southern Missouri in attendance. Therefore, be it further resolved that it be declared publicly and Masonically that in the death of Brother Vaughan, the state and society has lost a useful and highly honored citizen; that the family has been deprived of a loving husband and father; and that this Lodge extends its benevolent sympathy and consolation to his bereaved family. That this Lodge and the Fifty-fourth Masonic District of Missouri has lost a brother, loved, honored and revered by all Brethren and that his life as a Mason will always be in the memory of all his Brethren. That a copy of these resolutions be furnished to his family and a copy duly spread upon the records of this Lodge..

Respectfully submitted, John M. Pile, G. Purd Hays, Tom R. Moore, Committee.

Lee Vaughan Loses Life - Former Ozark Boy Killed at Pleasanton, Kan.

Lee Vaughan, son of Mrs. Emma Vaughan was run over by a freight train last Thursday night near the town of Pleasanton, Jas. He was a brakeman, running out of K. C. His train had stopped because of a hot box and the crew had been attending to this and had remedied the mishap. Vaughan had got back onto the top of his train and was going forward to take the bucket to the engine. The train was running again at this time, and as they approached a crossing, the engineer suddenly threw on the air, causing Vaughan, who had by this time got as far forward ad the first car behind the tender, to pitch over and fall between the tender and the car. His left leg was cut off above the ankle and the right leg and hip were crushed. the crew never missed him till they reached Ft. Scott, twenty-five miles away. Vaughan crawled to where his lantern had fallen, lit it and set in the middle of the track to flag another train that was about due. His cries, however, attracted the attention of the agent at Pleasanton, and the boy was picked up and sent to Ft. Scott. His injuries, however, were fatal, and he died at 2 o’clock Friday afternoon. His home was in Kansas City and his wife having been summoned arrived a few hours before his death. The funeral was held in Kansas City at 2:30 Sunday afternoon. Mrs. Emma Vaughan, his mother, Miss Lorena Vaughan and Mrs. Lucy Angwin; his two sisters, went to Kansas City to attend the funeral. Mrs. Clyde Tunnell, another sister who lived in Mahy, La. and Frank Vaughan of Springfield were present at the services.

He Was a Hero - Brakeman Vaughan Died As Result of Injuries - How He Behaved When the Accident Befell Him - Fort Scott Tribune-Monitor

It should be the ambition of every living human being to die in a manly way. At times the press called upon to chronicle the death of some person whose departure from this life is attended by the calm bravery that is often associated with heroes of other and far away centuries. Those incidents are not frequent, but the injury and subsequent death of Frisco Brakeman R. L. Vaughan whose mishap was stated in last evening’s paper, is worthy to be considered by everyone; for it is the action of a man who is as brave as any knight who ever unsheathed a sword. The injury befalling the man need not be repeated in these columns; save to say that while on boards his train to Pleasanton evening before last he fell between the cars and the wheels of a car passed over his body. His right leg was almost literally torn off at the hip and hot left foot was smashed and crushed to a pulp. No person not experiencing such an accident can begin to understand how great the pain the poor fellow suffered. How his actions compared with that of the faint and weak hearted who swoon at the sight of blood. With his body almost cut asunder and with a shock to his nervous system that no human can well withstand, Vaughan showed almost superhuman stoicism. When the injury befell him, his lantern was extinguished. After the car ran over him, he crawled, using his hands to pull his bloody body along the gravel and found his lantern. He struck a match and lighted the extinguished lantern, sat it where his crew might find it if they missed him or if he suddenly should lose consciousness. He was picked up by a few minutes later and brought here for treatment. Late yesterday afternoon, he passed away, dying the death of a hero. What conscious moment he had after being brought here, he was not heard to offer a complaint. The hero’s body was shipped to Kansas City this morning for burial.

[note: unsure this is correct, but he was the only person I found who died in Ozark on Saturday - but a week earlier than this suggests - and was buried in Spokane, but this says Thursday & obit says Tuesday; his MO DC lists his occupation as Post Master; no MO DC for a 19 Jun 1926 death in Christian County]

Our old postmaster at Spokane, who died at Ozark last Saturday, is to be buried at Spokane today, Thursday.
