“The Billings Times”, Billings, MO., Thursday June 15, 1905 copied this story. The original story was carried in Ozark Democrat on June 9, 1905.
Suicide—Robert ELLINGSWORTH, a well known farmer living west of Highlandville committed suicide about one o’clock yesterday afternoon By shooting himself. Nothing could be learned as to the cause of the act. Mr. ELLINGSWORTH was about 65 years old and leaves a large family. Corner YOACHUM being out of the county, arrangements are being made as we go to press to have an inquest held by a justice of the peace Ozark Democrat, June 9th.
(Robert had previously been in a farming accident, and was crippled. It was assumed that the suicide was because he could no longer work his farm, this from a grandson that was at the farm when it happened. He had done this by sitting back up against a tree, and pushing the trigger of a rifle, with a stick, aimed at his head—Jim Cochran)

Elliott, John K. 21 May 1924 - 8 Aug 2008 SN-L 12 Aug 2008 & CCH-N 20 Aug 2008
[Note: Son of Joseph & Ellen (Hartnett) Elliott; married 1951 Frances Hills]
John K. Elliott, 84, passed from this earth on the day of August 8, 2008. He passed away peacefully in his Sparta home with his family by his side. John was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin, on May 21, 1924, to Joseph and Ellen (Hartnett) Elliott. He was one of seven siblings. John Elliott is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Frances (Hills) Elliott. He is also survived by three daughters and one son, Linda (Robert) Leisenring, Kathy (Daniel) James, Christy (Daryl) Lundholm, and John L. Elliott (Margee). In addition he is survived by three siblings, a brother Michael Elliott, and two sisters, Jean Engel and Betty Rosenthal. He has 19 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. There are also many nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless friends. John was preceded in death by two brothers and a sister, Bernard Elliott, Carl Elliott, and Helen Jones, as well as two children Kenneth Allen Mussleman, infant Cynthia Jean Elliott and grandson Michael Barker. John Elliott was born to a farming family in Wisconsin and graduated from St. Thomas High School. He married Frances on October 27, 1951. He went to work for the Beloit Fire Department and later left to work in management for Beatrice Foods and then as chief mechanic and technician for Kimberly Clark Corporation. After a partial retirement in Big River, California, a close-knit community by the Colorado River, he and his wife came to Sparta, Mo., eleven years ago to settle permanently. John was a respected member of his community, always willing to assist if he was able. With a project always "in progress” he was never a sedentary man. Instead, he possessed a sharp intellect, lightening-fast sense of humor, and a keen eye for everything mechanical. At one point in his life, John built cars for auto racing, some of which took the checkered flag. John had a profound love for the outdoors and enjoyed camping and fishing, Blue-grass music, early "Western” film, and other pursuits. Ultimately though, John was a family man. He had a "code” that he lived by and could always be counted upon to keep his word. Although his blood was Irish, his heart was all-American. John was a patriot to his country and an important member of his community as evidenced by his many friends and neighbors throughout Sparta and the rest of the United States. John forged his own destiny, faced hardships, yet found much joy in the company of his beloved wife, Frances, his family, friends, and his lovable pets. He was the kind of man that could inspire all who had the good fortune to meet him. He will be dearly missed. Heaven just got a bit merrier. Services will be held at Fairview Baptist Church in Sparta, Mo., on Wednesday, August 13, at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, family request donations be made to Fairview Baptist Church. Cremation under the direction of Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark. Messages can be left at johnkelliott.blogspot.com.

Former Nixa alderman died in his home
Bill Ellis remembered for service to city, advocacy for children in Christian county courts
Joe Hadsall Nixa News-Enterprise
A former Nixa alderman was found dead in his home Feb. 6.
Bill Ellis died of natural causes. He was 58.
A family member discovered him in his house Monday after he did not show up at work. Emergency workers responded to an emergency call at 12:53 p.m.
“He died of natural causes,” Police Chief Bruce Belin said.
“There were no signs of any trauma. It looked like he went peacefully.”
Belin said the last time anyone spoke to Ellis was around 4 p.m. Sunday.
Ellis served as a Nixa alderman from 1999 until 2003 when he decided not to run again.
“I enjoyed working with him,” Mayor Doug Marrs said.
“It’s always sad to see someone pass away after they contributed so much to the community. He’ll certainly be missed.”
In addition to serving on the board, Ellis was an attorney with a practice in Nixa and a volunteer with the Christian County Child Welfare Advisory Board.
His friends remember someone who may have seemed a little gruff at first, but had a much softer side.
“He was one of those guys who always had a bigger heart than what he intended to let on,” Alderman Brian Hayes said.
“He had kids at heart, his own and others.”
Belin also remembers someone who was very friendly and cared about the community.
“He would stop by, we would drink coffee and solve the world’s problems,” Belin said.
“He was a big advocate for children, when working in the courts.”
Ellis leaves behind four children. He moved to Missouri from Kansas where he was a prosecutor.
He had a Springfield practice before relocating to Nixa in the mid-90s.
Funeral arrangements are being handled by Adams Funeral Home.

Just eight months to the day that she entered a Springfield hospital for a major operation, Mrs. L.K. Ellis of McCracken passed away at her home, following one of the most valiant and cheerful fights for life. It was on Wednesday, Dec. 6, while working at a kitchen sink, that she was seized with sever abdominal pains and on the 7th she entered the hospital. She at that time underwent a major operation in which the operating surgeon found a condition which dared not be disturbed with knife. She was returned home and began her fight for life through treatment and care. But the odds were against her and on Thursday of last week started a rapid decline which ended in her death Sunday afternoon, Aug. 5. She is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Thompson of De Moines, Iowa, who in spite of their advanced years made the trip from Des Moines here alone to attend the funeral; also by the husband L.K. Ellis and two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret Ann. With her husband and daughters, she moved to this vicinity from Des Moines some seven years ago. She was a member of the Ozark Community Presbyterian church, member of the Ozark Ladies Literary club and one of the first local and county presidents of the Parent-Teachers Association. She was a woman of high ideals, a lovely disposition, a fondness for home, husband and daughters, yet inspired to a sacrifice for the betterment of things around her. This is shown by the time she gave to her church, her club and the association with which she associated herself as an official or leader. Funeral services, simple yet lastingly impressive, were conducted Tuesday afternoon at 3 o’clock a the T.B. Chaffin Funeral Home, with Rev. C.F. Green, officiating. Burial was made in the Weaver cemetery north of Ozark.
