Estes, Ida L. (Jones) 12 Mar 1872 - 17 Nov 1927 CCR 24 Nov 1927

[Note: Daughter of William & Savannah (Waller) Jones; married 8 Mar 1899 George W. Estes  17 Dec 1871 - 3 Jul 1936]

Others, Lord, yes, others, Let this my motto be, Help me to live for others, That I may live for Thee. The above verse was lauded us as the motto around which Mrs. George W. Estes, late of Clever, builded her life. And what a wonderful though to be chosen a lamp to guide a soul along the pathway of life. Ida L. Jones was born at Herndon, Missouri on March 12, 1872, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Will Jones. She accepted Christ as her Savior and spiritual companion in August 1893 and joined the Baptist church. She lived a consecrated and devoted religious life. She was educated at the Henderson Academy and taught school for a number of years. She was married to George W. Estes of Clever, Missouri on March 8, 1899. They lived together for the betterment of each and for the uplifting of the community until November 17, 1927 when death claimed her and an entire community mourns. She is survived by her husband, George W. Estes of Clever; one sister, Mrs. I. E. Hathaway of Onawa, Iowa; two brothers, D. B. Jones and W. N. Jones of Springfield; several nieces and nephews. Among them being Clay Jones of Ozark. The funeral services were held on Sunday afternoon, November 29th from the First Baptist church in Springfield conducted by Reverends French and Hale, with burial in the Maple Park cemetery under direction of T. W. Maples of clever, assisted by Alma Lohmeyer of Springfield. The life of Ida L. Jones-Estes is the kind of life about which one like to think and likes to write. Any though or any word which has a likeliness to the purity of the lily may be uses as a eulogy to the life she lives. Although motherless when quite young, she was guided through girlhood and into womanhood by a praying father, to the end that she gave her life back to Him who had sent it, in service to those she loved and they were all those whom she met. Her place in the life of Clever and community probably never can be filled, because so few have such a consecrated idea of services to a community. We often visit structures of magnitude and marvel at their grandeur; we have seen the towering monuments erected to useful lives and they have impressed us greatly; but no monument was ever erected to any life more grand than that which a mourning host of friends erected to the life of Ida L. Jones-Estes on Sunday afternoon, November 20th, at the First Baptist church in Springfield. There a church packed with men and women and children by the hundreds from every walk of life; the rich and the poor; those who rode in fine cars and those who walked - a mourning populace, placed on a common level of mankind, because “a friend is dead”. the flowers seemed to spring from the very walls and bury her beneath their fragrant petals. This display of respect and esteem in which Mrs. Estes was held is the greatest of all monuments and was builded by her own acts, her own thoughts and will always be a soothing balm to the aching and lonesome hearts.

During the past two weeks, the kinship of the Greene and Estes families of this community has been called upon to grieve the visitation of Death in a double portion into the family circle. These visitations have taken from the community two persons who had devoted their living years in a sacrificial way to those they loved and to the community which they labored to make better. In the passing of Martha E. Estes and Milton J. Greene, he community has lost two person, who, not only had much in common in the way of kinship, but theirs was a common understanding of community needs and their ideals and aspirations for community development and community betterment were individually inspired and labored for. They seemed to understand in a mutual way the need for sincere home-loving application and the unselfish interest necessary in the community, to make the home and the community, partners to the work to be accomplished. They passing is a loss - not alone to those loved ones who grieve because of kinship ties, but the community at large will miss their leadership and their idealistic inspirations. Homes, churches, Farm clubs, and community activity of all kinds must realize a new responsibility to their individual work in order that they lives of Martha E. Estes and Milton J.

The two orphans who remember the motherly loveliness are J. A. Thompson of Springfield and Mrs. Elida Hughes of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mrs. Estes was a devoted member of the Hopedale Baptist Church and was ever faithful to her Creator and His work her on earth.

AND

Estes, Mary M. (Davis) 22 Mar 1852 - 20 Apr 1945

Mrs. Mary M. Estes, 93, whose memory reached beyond the Civil war, died at 9:40 o'clock this morning at the home of a son, Charles M. Estes, 734 South National, owner of Estes Farm Hatchery, where she had lived for the past eight months. A native of Jerome county, Tennessee, she had lived in the Clever community for the past 88 years, coming there with her parents when she was five years old.  Her father, Wash Davis, was a Confederate Civil war soldier and a slave owner whose slaves remained with him after the war even though they were free to leave.  Many years after the war, one of the slaves, old Jenny, came to see her master's daughter when Mrs. Estes herself had grown daughters. Her childhood home was a half-mile south and a mile west of the Old Wire road, which ran through the present town of Clever.  At that time Springfield was the nearest trading point. Being born in 1852, she was old enough during the

Civil war to have had vivid recollections of happenings of that time and many times recalled the battle of Wilson's  Creek, which fought so near their home that they could hear the noise of the firing.  "The noise of the battle was  terrific," she used to say.  "I never witnessed such a night in all my life.  It was awful.” She remembered the days when  nobody thought of raising chickens or turkeys because of the great numbers of them growing in the wild, which could be had for the shooting, and whose eggs could be had for the gathering.  Deer were plentiful in those days and several  deer licks were on her father's farm. They raised their own wool, had it taken to a carding mill and then spun it into  yarn which they wove into coverlets (coverlids in those days).  The Estes family still has one of the coverlets and at least  one of the looms. Mrs. Estes is survived by four sons, Charles M., at whose home she died, J. E. Estes, banker at Clever;  J. A. Estes, route 2, and W. A. Estes, Logan, Mo.; and two daughters, Mrs. Perlina Cloud, 548 East Elm, and Mrs. Ella  Blades, San Francisco. Her husband, J. Wiley Estes, died 22 years ago at Clever, where they owned and operated a large farm. Funeral arrangements are incomplete but services will be held in the Methodist church at Clever where she had had her membership for many years.  Maples of Clever is in charge.  Contributed by Dan Spellman.
