It would be like carrying coals to Newcastle for me to offer you suggestions. 

However when you go to microfilm this record you may very well choose to put the 
index at the beginning. It is now at the end which is customary for books which are bound.

Dear Mr. Hall: 

Thank you for your recent letter concerning your long-standing series of donations to the Family History 
Library. Your work is a valuable part of our collection. To answer your question, we prefer unbound copies of 
your manuscripts. An unbound copy will aid in microfilming, and later we will place a hard cover binding on 
the book for use on the shelf. 

We recently did some rearranging of the US book collection to free up some space and this has resulted in 
providing many years worth of space for new books. 

If you have any further questions, please give me a call. My number is listed below.

About two montha ago. aaya

of marriage. Their frlenda fncoar-

both have been lonely, they hare 
agreed to live the reat of their lives 

Mra. RoMnett haa been married

j When I asked Mr. Penter what 

j he believed constitutes a successful I 

i marriage. .Mrs. Koblnett answered] 

! quickly. "Now. Ludy. I've told you 

| as much us any reasonable person 

can sny on the subject — he's only 

j been married once — "as If to Imply. 

i "What Vloes he know about It?" 




l» "What God hath jointed together, 
let no man put asunder."', she quotea 

Only once, to be sure— yet he 11 v- 
\cil with liis one wife for 60 yearB, 
which might be expected to give a 
man some insight Into the subject. 
llowevc-r, he rather agrees with Mrs. 
'Koblnett on his Ignorance In the 
j matter— -SI was married when I was 
;1», and my wife was only li — just 
| kids," he laughs, "and we just got 


! along- the best we could. We didn't 

eillitr of us know very much alwut

I Mrs. HnWnrii was born In MIs- 

■ snurl. the daughter of a pioneer 

| Presbyterian minister, the Reverend 

I Joel H. Klstner. She recalls that 

I after he was too old and HI to go 

to the church, he gathered his 

neighbors around his bed and held 

wonderful evangelistic meetings. 

In 1871 she married J. M. Fair. 
nn<! bore him nine children before 
his death, 16 years later. In 1893 
she married again, .and had. one. 
more daughter. She has been a 
«K..v. since i^04. 


When her husband died, she left 
the Webster county farm and came 
to Springfield, where she. has lived 
ever since. 

The early years with nine orphan- 
ed children on her hands were not 
easy— the fact that all ten of her j 
rliildren, five boys and five girls. | 
are living, and all are respected, 
property-owning citizens, is a great 
source of pride and satisfaction to 
h-r. and shows how successfully 
she met her problem.

• but same to the Ozarks before tho 
' Tivll war. and has lived in Arkan- 
. fas urn) .Missouri ever since— on the 
jDatislon street mad farm for 34

Vision— the vision of one who 
tabors for an Ideal— was the theme 
of the tstk riven by the Reverend 
John Crockett, pastor of the Taber- 
laele Presbyterian church who 
aueted from Proverbs, "Where there 
to no vision the people perish.'* 

The Reverend Crockett quoted 
from the Watchtower of the Dally 
News In which Howard Bddy spoke 
•f the love of Mr. tflrnch for Marvel 
save m "a love I*, the grand man- 
ner ." He read the following portion 
»f the Watchtower: 

"People have said that It was 
queer for a man to spend nearly 
half of his life, and he lived for »0 
rears. In the embrace 08 that fan- 
tastle love. I do not think It waa 
queer. I think It was a passion, a 
•trange blsarre passion, perhaps, but 
nevertheless a passion to me strange 
ind wonderful He did not always 
live with his care after he had come 
to know It— but It called him back, 
sailed him back relentlessly snd Ir- 
resistibly, called him at increastng- 
v fr.-iuent Intervals until he came 
to give himself entirely to It. And. 
ls true lovers are- wont to do. they 
become as one "

A bill of lading for a valine

Letters from "Mr*. W. A. Smith.

of both the youths, one addressed 
to Calvin Smith and the other to 
Harry Smith. In these ahe begged 
her sons to come heme, and urgod 
Harry to etop In Wlnslow for a 
short time if he insisted on "going 
oa to the oil fields." 

Both the youths appeared to be 
of a good family, though they wero 
dressed for the road. One wore an 
expensive wrist watch and a small 
gM.j pin, a liny airplane model set 
with atones. On the body of this 
youth were found two mall money

A driver's license Isued In Detroit 
was fouod on the body of the older 
boy. and the description given of 
him on It was seen as an accurate 
description of the youth found here. 
It gave his eLrolt Address as route 
* and described Mm a* brown- 
haired, blue-eyed, ud 21 years old 




Th* poverty of the youths' fam- 
ily/ is plainly but . graphically - told 
In »tbe following letter from Mrs. 
Smith, found on tbe body of the 
jrounge* boy: 
"••vUsnber 9. 

"Dear eon: I will once more write

Lore to you — from your mother and 
all at home to Calvin." 

The bill of lading fur the valine 
Indicated Inn: the youths decided 
to return home Immediately, park- 
ing their clothing and shipping It on 
ahead of them on September 14.

Another letter from Mrs. Smith, 
found on the body of the youth 
believed to be Harry Smith, con- 
tained a plea similar to thai found 
in the other letter. 

A pipe' carried In a breust pocket 

of one of the youths was smashed

•These mounds mark the alte of

WARR.ENSBURO. Mo.. Oct. ».— (A 
P.I— Death hu ended the career of 
1 mi Boone. Negro punut. who won 
fame lp many couatrlea for hu abili- 
ty to reproduce » piece of music af- 
ter hearing It only once. 

Born In • federal army camp near 
Miami. Mo. Boone gained hie love 
of music from hi* father, who wan 
a drum major in the northern force* 
during the Civil war. Brain fever 
caused the Iom of hi* eyesight when 
he wn* six years old, and when his 
father placed him In school he ran 
away and organized a boy's band at 
St. Louis. 

He later attracted the attention of 
John Lang, director of a Sunday 
school orchestra at Columbia. Mo., 
and under Lang's management toured 
the United States and Europe for 30 
years. Ill health forced Boone's re- 
tirement last June, soon after the 
death of Lang. 

Boone died here last night after a 
heart attack. He was OS years old. 
Burial will be ut the pianist's home 
at Columbia.

Interpretations was "The Mar&liileld 
Cyclone." In all hta concerts In this 
section of Missouri, he was sure to 
be requested to render this number. 
Boone played entirely by ear and one 
of his favorite features was to have 
some musician from the audience to 
play a difficult selection. If possible 
one that Doone had never heard, then 
be would repeal the selection with- 
out skipping a measure or beat.

Spring 1998 

Springfield, Missouri 
by George T. Harper 


As the Reformation developed, dissenl took corporate form in the Puritan movement, of 
which Congregationalism was the most radical wing. John Robinson, one of the most influential 
early Congregational leaders, fled in 1609 to escape persecution in England and settled at Leiden 
in ihe Netherlands, with the exiled congregation from Scrooby in Nottinghamshire. For twelve 
years his congregation enjoyed peace under the Dutch, but he was haunted that their children 
would not grow up as English people. A large part of the company sailed for America in 1620 
aboard the historic MAYFLOWER. The democratic ideals of their Plymouth colony were the 
cornerstone of the structure that gave the U.S. its free state, free schools, and free social and 
political life. 

By 1640, there were 20,000 at Massachusetts Bay from England and with the "Plymouth 
People" joined forces to establish an all-powerful theocratic government. They produced some 
powerful leaders such as Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield. In the education field, this 
church founded Harvard in 1636. Yale in 1707, Dartmouth in 1769, along with Williams, 
Amherst, Bowdoin and Middlcbury. At Plymouth, they began work immediately with Native 
Americans and by 1674 there were 4000 "praying Indians" in New England with 24 native 
preachers. While some did come with the western movement, Congregationalists had a virtual 
monopoly in New England. (I) 


In 1869'Springfield, Missouri had grown to about 5000 and was slowly getting over the 
old animosities of the Civil War. The railroad was building toward Springfield, having reached 
Rolla. While Springfield's original settlement had been largely from Tennessee, there were 
people coming in anticipation of the railroad. The original town had been built around the 
Public Square. In 1869, there was a brash new competitor. This came about because thrifty 


businessmen were cool to suggestions of eastern builders that the town donate cash as well as 
right-of-way for the oncoming railroad. Springfield civic leaders thought it inevitable that tracks 
would be built through their thriving town. Why spend unnecessary money? Result of this 
miscalculation was North Springfield. The rival town, a mile and a quarter north of the original 
settlement, was centered around a broad business street called Commercial, parallel to the 
railroad right-of-way. The Frisco Depot and the Ozark Hotel, owned by the railroad company 
were there, along with several business houses huddled along Commerical Street and residence 
streets radiated from it. 

Newcomers in North Springfield were concerned about schools. Several of the more 
prominent former easterners were members of the Congregational Church. At that time the only 
religious congregations north of Olive Street were two Negro fellowships -Pitts Chapel Methodist 
and Washington Avenue Baptist. Actually the Congregational Church began in 1868 with a 
mission Sunday School started by Rev. James Haswell Harwood, who was a graduate of 
Williams College and whose ministry had mostly been in the Chicago area. The class met in a 
carpenter shop on the southeast corner of Boonville Avenue and Chestnut Street. The Sunday 
School grew and it was decided to organize a church, which was done February 14, 1869 when 
eleven persons formed The Union Evangelical Church ol Springfield, as it was first called. The 
charter members were Rev. and Mrs. James H. Harwood, Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Harwood, 
Mr. and Mrs. Alfred P. Harwood, Mrs. Eliza Haswell Harwood, Miss Katherine S. Harwood, 
Stephen Burton, Charles J. Burton, and Dr. Edwin Taylor Robberson. Dr. Robberson was one 
of the town's leading physicians and had large land holdings. Today's Robberson Avenue and 
Robberson School were named in his honor. He and Charles Harwood became associated in 
laying out and developing North Springfield, mostly from land already owned by Dr. Robberson. 
Rev. James H. Harwood, organizer of Union Church was a vigorous young man who had had 
successful pastoral and evangelistic work in the north, including active participation with D. L. 
Moody in his work in Chicago. He traveled all the time, organizing Sunday Schools and 
churches. From Lebanon on the northeast, to Carthage and Neosho on the southwest, and Lamar 
and Barton City on the northwest, he was known and welcomed in every little frontier village 
and farm home, and his beautiful gray saddle horse, Ranger, was known to every child along 
the rugged route. 

In 1868, a 21-year-old cousin of the Harwood brothers, Alanson Mason Haswell, 
followed the family to Springfield. His diligence as historian was of inestimable value to the 
church, and many of his newspaper articles have been preserved. He described the day of his 
arrival in Springfield, September 15, 1868. "Along St. Louis street as we came in we saw 
several neat two-story residences, the homes, as I learned later, of the Keets, Shephards, 
Hollands and other of the old families of the place. But aside from those homes there were far 
more one, two, and three room cottages. There was a big livery stable (where the Colonial 
Hotel stood) at the corner of St. Louis and Jefferson streets. I wish I could make you see the 
Square as I saw it that day. The street which the stage had come in on was a perfect sea of mud, 
worked up by the ceaseless procession of wagons bringing freight from the railroad; the street 
was bad enough but the Square was ten-fold worse. In the center was a circular cistern, for a 
water supply in case of fire. The circular top of this cistern was the auctioneer's block where 
many a slave had been sold." 

Such was the Springfield which the organizers of First Congregational Church were 
helping build into a city. The little carpenter shop soon became too small with 38 members and 
100 in Sunday School. On March 10, 1870, they voted to purchase two lots at the northeast 
corner of Jefferson and Locust Streets in North Springfield for a church to be known as First 
Congregational. To obtain larger quarters, the group moved diagonally across the streets into 
a former millinery shop to await the new building. There on August 10, 1870, was organized 
the Springfield Association of Congregational Churches— Lebanon, Lamar, Barton City, 
Carthage, Neosho, and First. At that meeting a tremendous step was taken by the six little 
churches. They adopted a resolution: "Resolved that a committee be appointed to take into 
consideration the founding of a Congregational College, somewhere within the bounds of this 
association." This was the birth of Drury College, first liberal arts college in a vast area of the 
Ozarks. The first passenger train on the future Frisco tracks to North Springfield pulled in, 
April 21, 1870, about two months after First Church observed its first anniversary. Mr. Haswell 
described the new town as "perhaps thirty small frame business houses, strung along on either 
side of an eighty foot space labled "Commerical Street." Of the business houses, he wrote, 
thirteen were saloons, and every saloon had an annex of a gambling den or worse. There were 
probably 300 people who had built houses and settled more or less permanently. 

The new while frame home of the First Congregational Church was dedicated May 21, 
1871. The $5000. cost had been contributed by members and was debt free. The building was 
40 feet wide and 70 feet long, with a tall bell tower. The membership had reached 56 and was 
having a great impact on the spiritual and cultural life of the city. Among the pillars of First 
Church were Frederick S. Denny. Frederick Ball, A.B. Conkling, Dr. William M. Smith, and 
Henry T. Rand, all deacons. Others included Mr. & Mrs. W.L. Hardy and daughter, Georgia; 
and Mr. & Mrs. P.W. Bahl and daughter, Madge. 



The idea of a Congregational College for southwest Missouri seemed important to 
members of First Church. Naturally, they hoped it would be established in Springfield. A 
College, however, was not founded without difficulties. There was a determined effort of 
several Ozarks towns to obtain the institution. Neosho and Carthage especially, were strong 
contenders. Springfield won over Carthage by one vote. 

Drury College was founded in 1873. North Springfield was now claiming 1000 
population and Old Town had about 6000. Rivalry between the two was intense. The proposed 
college was the first thing on which they united. Even then, the cooperation of business leaders 
outside the church hinged on an agreement that the college would be located between the towns. 
It was a substantial link toward the eventual merger of the two Springfields in 1888. (2) 

There were four transplanted New Englanders who brought about the beginning of Drury 
College: James H. Harwood, home missionary and evangelist; Charles E. Harwood, real estate 
developer with legal training; Nathan J. Morrison, a college administrator; and, Morrison's 
friend Samuel F. Drury. James H. Harwood (1837-1932) was mentioned above as organizer of 
Union Church which became First Congregational Church. Charles E. Harwood (1830-1933) 
older brother of James H. Harwood was considered the second founder of Drury College. He 
was born in Bennington, Vermont and studied law after his graduation from Williams College. 
He was a Judge in Springfield and would have much to say and contribute when it came time 
to find a college campus. The third "founder" of Drury College was Nathan J. Morrison (1828- 
1907) who was the first President of Drury College. He received a Doctor of Divinity from 
Dartmouth College in 1853 and in 1884, he received a Doctor of Laws degree from University 
of Missouri. The fourth "founder" was Samuel Drury (1816-1883) who was born in Spencer, 
Massachusetts. In 1838, he came to Otsego, Michigan and established a country store which 
became a successful venture. Dr. Morrison was teaching at the new Olivet College and he and 
Mr. Drury became close friends. Later, when Dr. Morrison was in Missouri and was working 
toward establishing a new college, he presented the need for start-up money to Mr. Drury. He 
asked for $25,000 on the condition the school should bear his name. After that , Mr. Drury 
frequently visited Springfield to attend board meetings and to make additional gifts to the new 
school. On September 25, 1 873 the first classes began at Drury College. There were thirty-nine 
students on opening day. Later records indicate that of those enrolled on opening day, fourteen 
eventually earned their baccalaureate degrees. They were: eight women, Anna and Emma 
Grigg, Mary A. McCluer, Cora J. Perkins, Alice Porter, Georgetta Hardy, Hattie S. Robberson, 
and Aurelia Harwood; there were six men, A. P. Hall, J.T. White, Joseph Shepard, McClain 
Jones, Edward F. Townsend, and Walter B. Robberson. (3) 


At one time there were five Congregational Churches in Springfield; First (1869-1991), 
Pilgrim (1884-1908), Central (1883-1899), Swedish (1886-1918), and German (1885-1919). On 
January 10. 1899, First Church merged with Central Church, with a total membership of 440. 
Two lots were bought at Benton Avenue and Calhoun Street for the new brick church across 
from the Drury College campus. It had a steeple, stained glass windows, a pipe organ, and a 
beamed Gothic ceiling in the sanctuary. 

Unfortunately, 40 years later, the beautiful church was destroyed by fire, in 1952. Dr. 
James F. Findlay, president of Drury College offered Stone Chapel as a meeting place. The 
community responded to the church's loss with gifts toward a new building. The cornerstone 
for the new church was laid July 21, 1953 and the dedication was December 13, 1953. 
However, there had been a great difference of opinion about the type of building— traditional or 
functional. The building committee sent out a ballot and 156 voted for the functional plans; 73 
voted for New England architecture. (4) 


The last pastor, Rev. Nelson Parnell (1974-1991), still lives in Springfield and updated 
the writer on more recent history. With a decline in membership, the church disbanded in 1991 . 
The First Congregational was a progressive church and took on causes which sometimes were 
controversial. They chose to pay taxes to Springfield, supported the American Civil Liberties 
Union, supported food stamps and helped Crosslines with food and clothing for those who 
needed the help. They supported scholarships for Drury College students and helped in other 
educational causes. 

The church building and parsonage are now owned by Drury College. Dr. John Moore, 
president of Drury College, informed the writer that the college has a "Covenant Relationship" 
with the United Church of Christ (successor to the Congregational Church) and has the same 


relationship with the Disciples of Christ (Christian Church). While the college is completely 
independent, they maintain a special relationship with the former parent church groups. He 
stated the Drury College Mathematics Department now occupies the former church building. 
The parsonage now serves as a Bed and Breakfast for guests of Drury College.

"The mound upon which this atone 
U placed to all that remains of the 
bouse of some chieftain of the Neo- 
lithic age - said L. K. Meaner, in an 
■ ddw at the dedication ceremony 
of the historic marker placed on the 
Drury collage campus by 'the Uni- 
versity. club this afternoon. 

The markar. a simple ttone, with 
explanatory Inscriptions, rests on a 
mound beneath a clump of ever- 
green* between Wallace ball and the

Miss Alice Tbraaher. registrar of

trails and the Indian moundi, both 
of which the marker commemorates.

According to Dr. L. M. *8heppard. 
the beat living e'uthorlty on the his- 
tory of the cou.-.ty. there are about 

10.000 of tbeee mounda In Greene

the walls of their houses of adobe, 
tbe roofs of thatch. 

"We know nothing about the men 
and women who lived In them, but 
much It coming- to be known of tbe 
part tbe men played in tbe long and 
interesting story of clvlliaatlon, M he 

aald. "It was tbe men of the tito- 
Utbic age -that first made the rough 
pattern* of all tbe essential tools 
which make Industry possible today, 
tbe wheel, tbe wedge, the arch and 
the screw. Much of our civilisation 
of today we owe to unknown men and 
raoee of the silent past. This marker 
represents our unpaid debt to thews 
men. . 

"This stone marks an old trail, one 
of many old trails over wblcb man 
have traveled for eenturlea to one of 
the most attractive places in the j 
Ozarks." said Mr. Meador. "Two of 
tbe most Important of thee* trails 
crossed at Springfield, one. the WU- 
dernees road, leading from the Osage 
settlement to the Osage river at Ber- 
ryvllle. Ark.; the other, tbe Virginia 
warriors' path, leading from the At- 
lantic to the Rocky mountains. There 
were other trails made by tbe In- 
dians In coming to this bunting 
ground. One of tbeee, tbe trail to 
St. Louts, became Important during 
the Civil war and earthworks were 
thrown across the trail to protect It. 

'. The remains of these earthworks can 
■till be seen on the Drury campus, 
and this stone Is placed here aiso as 

' a memorial to the action and men of

1 "DU1LT on a mound which. *up- 
posedly, wu the home ot the 
chief tribe of Oxark mound dweller* 
of the neolithic age— *om* 10.000 
year* ago — a marker wm yestar- 
d«y dedicated by the UntTeralty 
Club In commemoration of the j 
event. The marker, of white atone. | 
and uniform with othera placed 
about the city on hlatorlc spots, was 
set slightly north of the Music hall. 
"The mound dwellera were the 
second race of people to Inhabit the 
Oxarks." Prof. L. E. Meador told 
the University Club membere. "the 
cave-dwellers being the first. The 
mounds were circular, from IB to 
30 feet in diameter, and there were 
at least 10.000 in Greene county 
alone. There are a great many on 
the Drury campus. We have but 
a few bare facts concerning these 
people, but we know this much: 
they were the makers of the first 
rough tools, the wedge, the wheel, 
the screw, the lever — tools that 
modern Industry could not do with- 

The marker accidentally serves a 
double purpose— the other being to 
mark the spot where on* of thw 
moat famous traJU leading tot* tho 
Oaarka uogeit thS Drury campus.

baa spent his entire life as, a- ohlm- 
ney sweep, and be Is famlHar with

Banta Claua himself. ' , 

i "Do I like my work 7 Bay, Listen." 
he said. "I've been a chimney

Mr. Olbbens bears tbe marks of

when be beard that tbe doctor was

for the veteran of the flues, "how

"There's ope thing about being 
a chimney sweep, you can't afford to

pre only 18 inches In diameter, and 


more than- 50 feet long, and let me 
tell you -something, -If you don't, 
know bow to breathe Just right, you'll 
quit breathing. Not everyone, of 
course, could be a chimney sweep, 
that la a scientific. Intellectual

across the floor, to demonstrate . Just

"Well, that's the;. reason— to make

"One time I (Ued tip • half-breed

him to walk the streets to advertise

and wondered, and I took off my cap 
and asked the bar tender wbat he'd 
take to fUI It up with beer. He said 
10 cents and so be filled It up and 
the whole crowd bad plenty to dhnk." 

Mr. Olbbens has worked from Ar- 
kansas to Illinois, and hell tell you 
he's cleaned, some dirty chimneys 
in his day. 

"But I believe in being dean, even 
In a dirty Job.", he declared, and 1 
guess I shouldn't say It. but some of 
the basements 1 go into are «u. e 
a disgrace. But X eant ever leave 
any dirt around my furnace;** 

Life has presented a peculiar mix-

"But he told us he Just couldn't

Sunday from St. Louis Where he had 
tw-en under treatment at the Baptist 

."The family met him at Springfield. 
He seemed quite Jolly after reaching, 
home. We avoided talking, to him 
alwut his Illness, because be dis- 
liked to discuss It. 

" 'Mother, we haven't anything to 
worry about.' he sa'ld Sunday. But 
wi couldn't get him to tako an In- 
terest In things about the home. We 
a*ked him ahout buying wood for 
the winter, but ho listlessly said, 
•Let's put it off awhile.' " 

Felt Death Approach. 
Throughout yesterday, as the fami- 
ly hovered near hla bedside, the pas- 
tor said little to hie family. 

"Once ho uald to mother, 'I lovo 
you.' He aeomed to want to get well." 
As he realized the end was near, 
Mr. Crocker called to his t*~o older 
sons, Luther and Claybrook. 19. and 
b< gged them to take care of their 
mother, which the boys sobblngly 
promised to do. 

Luther recounted tho details of Uie 

"I was upstairs dressing,'.' he said. 
"Mother was cooking breakfast. Sud- 
denly- 1 heard a shot. I looked out 

from s window and saw father lying 
on the ground, the pistol near him." 
Neighbors Astounded. 
Shocked neighbors ran to the home, 
be said. 

Mr. Crocker's limes*- seemed 'to 
creep gradually upon him. the son 
said. Members of his church first 
noticed his breaking health. 

Encouraging reports of his condi- 
tion were rucelvcd from the St. Louis 
hospital by the family while the pas- 
tor was a patient there.* bis son said. 
Prior to going to Seymour two years 
ago last February, Mr. Crocker was 
pestor of A Baptist church at Thayer 
fcr 18 months. 

He has served as spiritual advisor 
of several Baptist churches In Okla- 
homa before* , oomlng to Missouri. 

He was a graduate of Clinton col- 
lege. Clinton, Ky*. He also attended 
Southwestern Baptist Theological 
Seminary at Fort Worth/ Tex. 

He was born March 2, 1880 In Gib- 
son county, Tenn. 

Deacons of the church today de- 
clare the -minister was a forcible 
spsaker, a capable organizer, and 
an energetic pastor. 

He was popular with his cqngre- 
ra Uon.

Dear Bill: 

Doth Billie and I really appreciated (and astonished) 
the copies of the articles in the Springfield newspapers about 
my accident. I had no idea that there was any publicity in the 
papers about it. Nobody ever mentioned it to me. 

As best I can remember, I was apparently in a coma for 
about four days and in the hospital for about a week. My 
first recollection after the coma was Uncle Lee standing over 
me, and his first question waB "Have you had a bowel movement?" 
I had never heard the term before, 

Jim and Kdwin were at the scene when the accident occurred, 
and both thought I was a dead duck for sure. Jim lived until 82, 
and every time 1 talked to him on the phone, he reminded me that 
I really should have been named Lazarus. 

Apparently I did recover rather quickly — so far as I know 
the only lasting effects were a slight drooping of my left eye- 
lid, and the need for glasses. 

At any rate, I'm glad to know I was so famous, even if 1 
way D ' 

did it the hard/ My only other publicity in the Springfield 
papers was in connection with the high school yearbook — a copy 
of which I am enclosing, the pictures that is. If you don't have 
the 1935 Resume, I have two copies, and would be happy to give 
one of them to you, as you are in several group pictures. 

Time does fly, even faster than before retirement. Billie 
has a new Dell Computer, with all the features including large- 
screen, color printer, and scanner. We don't travel at all- 
haven' t been to Springfield since 1989. Should you ever travel 
this way, we'd surely love to see you! 

Thanks again, hope things are going well with you, and 
keep in ^f'^ J? , 

u^ktWik^ Sincerely,, 

VJ 1, \ P.S. - In your letter you mentioned some guy named Jack Benny. 

■'as he the masked man in the lone Ranger series, or was that 
before ybiir time? Ji^ -^ *J^

uyvE turned ovar a new If C— 

A rm trains to start over. and 
from now on I'm roing to do every- 
thing for her happiness and pleas - 

Crawford William* speaking. 77- 
-old bridegroo m who yesterday 
waa happy In hla remarriage to I 
Maggie Wllliama lt» College street, 
who divorced hlro more than two 
years ag\x 

"He dldnt want no other woman; 
and I dldnt want no other man," 
lira William* aunt It up, nnJUng 
contentedly. "We're getting alonff 
— - Mra William* la M— "and we 
need each other's companionship. 
He's good help—" Mrs. WUllama 
runs a rooming house — "and I think 
ril get along better with a man 

Mra. Williams has four sons, but 
two of them ar* married, and the 
other two— the youngest is 20 this 
week — she thinks are likely to leave 
at any time. There'a more security 
■In a husband; particularly a hue- 
band who ha* been tried and 
proved. ... 
«, ♦ 



Mr. and Mrs. William* first were 
married In Arkansas, eight years 

u;a. lire. Willlaxua, after 30 >«utj 
of wifehood, waa a lonely widow; 
Mr. WlUlama too, was lonely, with 
two wives dead, and hi* three chil- 
dren grown. 60 they were married — 
For six years they lived amiably, 
coming to Sprltur£«£d in 1921. 
Then, still amiably, she divorced 
him — for reasons "too personal." 
she says, to be revealed. "We never 
d!d have any trouble," she sold. "I 
Just told him I was going to dlvorco 
him: and when I say a thing. I 
mean It. When the day to get the 
divorce came, he said to my law- 
yer. 'I fueae there's no use my com- 
ing. Is therer and the lawyer said 
^certainly not.' But he Just came 
along: anyway — Mrs. Williams 
Implies that he didn't want her to 
face the ordeal alone. "It wan the 
first time 1 ever nad been In court, 
and he sat right beside me and held 
my umbrella all the time. Then I 
Kot my divorce, and he brought mo

♦ ♦ 

Mr. Williams moved Into the 
country near WUlard — Mrs. Wil- 
liams thought he mbjht *ret lonely, 
so she ■wrote htm regularly, and he 
wrote her. Then, further to koej. 

him from feelUur too lonely. she 
sent him a subscription to The Re- 
publican. The boy to whom she 
gave the order, misunderstanding, 
seent her copy of the paper to him 
Instead of an extra one, and for a 
week she had to buy her own paper 
each morning at the newsstand - 

"But I didn't mind;" she says— 1 
knew he would want It." 

In April. 1924. she married again, 
a man "who tried all the time to 
get mo to sign over all my property 
to him; and I wouldn't do that for 
him, or for no man." After two 
months, he left — "He thought he 
could go away for a couple of 
days, and then come back and I'd 
do anything." she said. "But ohl 
It was a great relief to have him 
gonel I was so glad I" she says. 
And when he did come back, he 
found a closed door. In September, 
exactly a year after divorcing Mr. 
Williams, she divorced him. 

She then resumed cor r e s pondence 
with Mr. Williams. Last summT 
he went to Florida for the winter, 
and repeatedly wrote her to come 
down there and marry him again. 
"But I couldn't len.vo SprliuffleH." 
she explains. "I have a lot of Al 
friends here, and I didn't want to 
lrave a sure thin? for something- 
thAt would be uncertain." 

So he came, back here Instead, 
arriving Monday — and yesterday 
they were married.

| two sons. Kmmett and Dwlght, and 

lived together for 10 years. 

The older eon. Kmmett, for many 
vMri prominent In democratic 
, circles In Missouri and Washington. , 
and until five years »fo manager 
of the Landers theater here, will be 
here from New York City for the 
funeral. Dwlght Newton, who was 1 

associated with father in the 
grain business here until hie retire- 
ment about 10 years ago. since that 
time haa lived with and csred for 
hie father, end was with lilm at the 
time ot hla death. 

Wherever older Bprlngfleldlans 
met yesterday, the death — but oven 
mora the life—of "Undo Job" was 
the topic of conversation. In homes. 
In offices and shops, and over res- 
taurant tables, old acquaintances 
were recalling tales and anecdotes 
of hla Ions Ufa here. 


4> < 

"Uncle Job." at 101, had outlived 
by 15 years the last of his own 
feneration of intimate cronies; but 


there are scores of younger men. 
•rblte-headed th*n»**lT*e now. and 
associates of hi* Utor years, who 

, recalled and r*lat*d tho thing* 
i which had made him for half-a- 
' century an outstanding and well- 
loved figure— 
' How for 66 years ha had been 
In the grain buslneaa here, known 
and dealt with virtually all of the 
farmen Id Springfield's trada terri- 
! ton. aa well aa with th* business 
[men of the city, until ho probably 
had a wider acquaintance than any 
other man In the Oxarks. 

How he was noted for. his square 
dealing, so that "his word waa aa * 
, good aa hla bond" throughout the I 
teg ion. 

a — ^— — ^— ^— — — — ■" — ■ ~ —~-~'^~^^ — ™~ * * ! 

♦ ♦! 

How he was civic-minded, fore- 
seeing in Springfield's earlier days 
how the city would develop, and 
making his vision effective — how. j 
with two associates, he recognlxed 
that one day the city would need • 
■low mown and so bought 
"the til) 1> ■:" t>- hold :*t th.»t i-.v.l. 
It was the block bounded by Col- t 
lege. Campbell. McUaniel and Mar- 
ket, where convention hall, the city 
fire department, and the city Jail 
now stand. 

! Tear* later, whan the cltv did 
need the property, value* had In- 
creased enormously. In the mean- 
time, one of the three holders bad 
sold out. Mr. Newton and the other 
had held the rt si aa a sort of trust 
established by themselves, and they 
■old It to the city at the price they 
had paid for It- and even then took \ 
(a>ment in long- time warrants. 
♦ -♦ 


cess of many civic and Masonic 
ventures— and that his great but 
unostentatious generosity waa the 
foundation for many a successful 
business and successful life today; 
how frequently his right hand gave 
what his left hand knew not of. and 
sometimes months or even years 
later, his closest friends, or even 
members of his own family, would 
happen by chance onto some act of 
free and generous giving which had 
never been revealed. 

Po It was that rpcollpctlnns of his 
eenial humor, his consideration, 
hojaety. and leadership, farm ed

Friday erenlng. hi* 
since done, and his fine, 
old body too weary to carry on. 
Job Newton died at hie noma, ill 
West Walnut street. 

Today bis friends, and the chil- 
dren and grandchildren of Mauds 
of former generations, will gather 
to do blm final honor— 

This, old friends pointed out yes- 
terday, waa merely an example of 
the activities of "Uncle Job." who 
was ever a moving spirit In city 
progress. They recalled that he was 
on* of tho builders of the famous 
Metropolitan hotel, by far the finest 
hotel In all the southwest, which 
was built In an attempt to "save" 
Springfield when the Frisco went 
through North Springfield — and waa 
a big factor In the success and 
growth of the city, for years a 
headquarters for social, political, 
and commercial lire. That he was, 
too, one of the builders of the 
splendid old Mansfield Opera House, 
at 315 South street, where the 
artistic activities of the southwest 
centered for years.
