The Sedalia Weekly Bazoo, Sedalia, MO, Dec 7 1886 - In Memoriam. The death of Miss Maggie E. Salmon, daughter of Dr. G. Y. Salmon, of Clinton, was the occasion of profound regret to her relatives and many friends in this city. She was so young, so lovely in character, so true and loyal to her convictions, so zealous and earnest in good works, so considerate and tender to all of God's unfortunates, that love flowed to her as a river flows to the sea. When she died there were minor chords in earth's music, and many a heart breathed a sigh, and many eyes wept tears of regret. The following details of her funeral, which took place in Clinton, Thursday last, will be read with interest: The altar of the Cumberland Presbyterian church in which she had long been a prominent member of the choir, was draped with black and white crepe. In the center was a pillow composed of marchal neil roses, with the name "Maggie" wrought in purple immortelles. Just below this was a star, symbolical of the star of Maggie's life shining eternally beyond, made of white roses. There was also an anchor of tea roses, smilax and geranium leaves, a wreath; of tube and nephitos roses bearing the name "Maggie" in purple immortelles, baskets, crosses, pillows, etc., all bearing testimony to the love which the sleeper had inspired. A very fine musical programme had been arranged and the vocal selections were rendered tenderly and feelingly. Miss Maggie's vacant chair, heavily draped, bearing sad testimony to the voice which had gone to sing in the "Land of the Leal." The following were the pall bearers: John Penick, C. T. Givens, Paul Tyler, C. D. Dorman, Herbert Avery, Thos. Cheany, Walter Owen and Lyman Pearson. The remains were interred beside Mrs. Fannie Prince Salmon in Englewood cemetery. -- Last Rites. The funeral of Miss Maggie Salmon of Clinton, took place yesterday afternoon from the Cumberland Presbyterian church of that city, Rev. Dr. Mood, assisted by Rev. Mr. Barnard, officiating. The church was crowded with mourning friends and relatives of the beloved dead, and a long cortege following the remains to their last resting place beside her recently deceased sister, Mrs. Fannie Salmon Price, in Englewood cemetery. Miss Salmon had a large circle of friends all over the state and in this city she was particularly beloved for her winsome ways and many grand traits of character. The news of her death left a depressing effect and her memory will long remain imperishable.

Clinton MO, Sep 1 1894 - With widespread wings, the Death Angel alighted in our midst Monday night and claimed for its victim the wife of our estimable fellow citizen, Harvey W. Salmon. Mrs. Salmon had not been ill a great while. Hers was a complication of diseases but inflammation of the stomach and bowels seemed to be the most serious difficulty. Dr. Britts was the attending physician and faithfully performed his duties. Dr. John Kimbrough of St. Louis was in attendance at his sister's bedside during the last days of her illness. Mrs. Salmon was a daughter of Uncle Johnny Kimbrough and was born in Springfield, Mo. in 1850, making her 44 years of age. She came with her parents to Clinton in the fall of 1869 and was educated at Christian College in Columbia. She has been a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church for 25 years. In 1871, Uncle Johnny Kimbrough gave his daughter, Kate in marriage to Harvey W. Salmon and their married life has been spent in congenial happiness. Five children, four boys and one girl, made merry music in their home until death chilled the heart of one baby boy, a remarkably bright little fellow. At her death, Mrs. Salmon's oldest child, Harvey, Jr., was 21 and he will miss his gentle mother sadly. Merritt, Louise and Warren are too young to fully realize their loss but as they grow older they will know that the dearest, best thing in the world has been denied them - the tender love and watchful care of a Christian mother. To Mr. Salmon, her loss is irreparable. Also three sisters and four brothers are deeply grieved over the loss of what to them was a second mother. And, in tenderest pity, we speak of what her loss is to her aged father. Seventy-five years have come and gone since he entered this life and it seemed that, in his feeble old age, he would be the first to return to the life from whence he came. He had grown to depend on her for the brightness and sunshine of his old age. Funeral services were held at the elegant home of the deceased on East Green Street.

Clinton MO, Nov 7 1896 - Fatal Accident at Republican Rally - A sad, sad incident of the Republican demonstration last Saturday was the fatal accident to Master Milburn Salmon, whose neck was broken by the crash of the speaker's stand at the arbor, at night, occurring just as Mr. Lewis had made a short address. It seems that the little fellow and several companions were caught in the jam and were evidently trying to get out by crawling under the timbers, when the crash came, catching his neck on a crossbeam and breaking it. He was found sometime after and taken to Jackson's undertaking, where he was recognized as the son of E. W. Salmon, lately of Marshfield, and the sad news was communicated to grief-stricken relatives. His remains were interred at Englewood on Sunday. Milburn would have been 12 in a few days and, with his 7 year old sister, made his home with their grandmother, Mrs. W. W. Salmon on East Green. Their mother died some three years ago. He was a bright and manly boy.

Clinton Eye, Aug 1890 - A new grave in Englewood and beneath Mother Earth sleeps that long and peaceful sleep one of our boys who in life had the esteem of all. As the shades of eve were drawing to a close last Sabbath, after three weeks illness, Will H. Salmon breathed his last, and the once happy home now mourns the loss of one whose bright smiles never failed to win loving friends. He was just merging into his 24th year and if his life, so full of hope, could have been spared, our society and business relations would be better by having such a noble young man among us. For two years he had been connected with the bank of Salmon and during that time, Mayor Carter, who had stood beside him, says he never saw a more gentle and willing disposition to do what was right than Will H. Salmon possessed. A long procession of the sorrowing followed his remains to their resting place in Englewood.

She loved animals of all types and enjoyed nature. She would sit for hours at the Montrose Lake, watching and photographing animals. The family home was always filled with cats, dogs and other critters. Photography was another love. She was never seen without a camera close at hand and no one was safe from her shutter finger. She enjoyed crafts, participating in several craft shows and winning trophies for her work. During recent years, she was working hard to lose the weight she had gained during her lifetime. At the time of her death, she had lost over 100 pounds. The women in the TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly) group had become her closest friends.

Brownington Cemetery, Osage Twp, Henry Co, MO
Clinton MO - Elijah W. Sanders was born in Taylor county, Ky., Sept. 15, 1836, and died July 27, 1921, at this home in Deepwater. Uncle Lige, as he was always known, was the son of Easton C. and Demaris (Fradris) Sanders; the former a native of Kentucky, and the latter of Virginia. He was reared to young manhood in Kentucky, where he was married to Lieusiba Cook in 1854, soon after, moving to Sangamon county, Ill. To this union four children were born, two dying in infancy; his wife also dying Feb. 8, 1866, leaving to him the care of two young sons - Robert E., and John H., the latter living near Deepwater. In Nov. 1867, he came to Missouri, settling in Fairview township, and on Jan. 3, 1869, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Hurt, and to this union four children were given: Elizabeth, at home, Diena, of Appleton City; George, living on the home farm, and Charles, died Dec. 17, 1893. On Nov. 22, 1919, the death messenger again entered his family, taking the eldest living son, Robert E., and again on Dec. 19, 1919, he was called upon to give up the loving, faithful companion of 40 years, leaving him to the lonely life of the confirmed invalid, having thru an accident been confined to his wheel chair for three years, but all his troubles were borne with a bravery that could only be accredited to the faith and trust given him by the loving Father and the long Christian life he had led, having made a profession of faith in early youth. It was his greatest delight to take part in all religious services within traveling distance of his home. He was a member of the Baptist church, served for many years as a deacon of the Pleasant Valley church, and was one of the builders and charter members of that church. There are left to mourn their loss four children, thirteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; also two brothers - Thomas of Lowry City, and Elza of Campbellville, Ky., and a host of friends and other relatives. Deceased was a good citizen and neighbor, being good and kind to the widows, orphans, the sick and those in need. He was thoughtful of his pastor and church and was its faithful janitor for years, receiving the satisfaction of knowing that he was serving his Master for his compensation. In fact, there would not have been a Pleasant Valley church, had it not been for his foresight for a church home for those of that neighborhood, and the church stands as a splendid monument of his faith in his God and his deep Christian love for unborn generations. He did not harbor malice, could not tolerate deception and was the same every day, showing his religion in everyday deeds. All who knew him admired him. Funeral services were conducted at the Deepwater Baptist Church Thursday of last week, and the remains were interred in Brownington Cemetery.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Oct 3 2005 - Helen Louise Sapp was born in Altoona, Kansas, January 21, 1924, the daughter of Clint Ray and Kate (Havens) Smith. She died Thursday, August 25, 2005, at St. Luke's Hospital, Kansas City. She was the second of six children. She lived in the Raytown area for several years, before moving to Deepwater where she made her home next to her mother. She bowled at Meadowlark Lanes in Clinton for several years. She also bowled at Loma Vista Lanes in Raytown for several years before that. Helen carried a 200 average. She was a very avid bowler, receiving numerous awards and pins. Another of her hobbies was gardening. She was quite a gardener, especially with flowers. Helen also spent a lot of her spare time sewing different crafts. She volunteered to make a variety of crafts for different occasions to be sent to the Skilled Nursing Unit at Golden valley Hospital and Truman Lake Manor in Lowry City. Helen was very active in the Deepwater Volunteer Fire Department and First Responders fundraisers by helping out any way that she could and by donated items. She was famous for her very chewy and delicious peanut butter cookies. Helen never had children of her own until she married Howard Sapp and then became stepmother to eight children. Helen worked at Rival in Clinton for a few years before retiring. After Howard's retirement from the City of Clinton, they retired to her country home south of Deepwater where they lived the remaining years of their lives together. They had cattle and a bird dog named Buster who climbed trees after squirrels. Not only did the dog climb the trees, but so did Helen's great-niece and nephews, who would walk or ride their bikes from Deepwater to spend the night in her barn. They always had such a great time with her. Helen hosted Christmas dinner for the Smith side of the family. It started out with an overabundance of food. Then she made sure that Santa was coming for all the kids and that everyone had a gift. She didn't want anybody left out. Whenever one of her great-nephews didn't like his option of dinner at home, then he always knew that he could count on Helen for a backup. She was just a hop, skip and a holler away. During deer season while Howard was away hunting, Helen would go get the dinner supplies of choice and have a little slumber party for her great-niece and nephew. Whenever it was bedtime she would let them sleep with her and crowd her onto the edge of her own bed. Helen was the soul caregiver for Howard until the very last when Hospice became involved. She very suddenly became ill and passed away 20 days after Howard. She will be very sadly missed by her sister, two brothers and a number of nieces and nephews and many family members. Funeral services were held at the Vansant-Mills Chapel on Monday, August 29. Graveside services and burial was held at the Floral Hills Cemetery, Kansas City.

One of the most promising students of Fayette high school was removed from our midst Monday Morning when death claimed Howard Lee Sargent of Montrose. He passed away at 1:30 o'clock after an operation for a ruptured appendix last Thursday. "Holly" Sargent, as he was affectionately known by all his associates, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. James S. Sargent of Montrose. He was a superior student at the local high school, being on the honor roll every month since his entrance in September. He has taken an active interest in school affairs, and was very popular among his fellow classmates. Sargent had been suffering for some time with an eye trouble which caused him much inconvenience in his work at school. Death came after an illness of five days. Wednesday he suffered a severe attack of appendicitis, an emergency operation being performed as quickly as possible at the Lee Hospital. It was found that his appendix had ruptured. Sunday night it was decided that a blood transfusion was necessary, and Wesley Tyler, 1930 captain of the Central College football team of last fall gave his blood for that purpose. Sam Huddleston, also a Central student, offered his blood but a test showed that his was not of the right texture. Mrs. Sargent, the mother, had been with "Holly" ever since the operation Thursday, Mr. Sargent being called Sunday. They were with him at the time of his death. The body was taken to the family home in Montrose Monday morning. Sargent, who was a fine Christian young man, was a regular attendant of the Methodist Church at Teays Chapel. He will be greatly missed by all who came in contact with him. Howard Lee (Holly) Sargent, son of J. S. and Mary E. Sargent was born December 24, 1910 and departed from this life March 16, 1931, being 20 years, 2 months and 20 days of age. He grew to young manhood in the community in which he was born. He was ever ready to perform the duties of his Master, was a faithful Sunday school and league worker. He was League president of the Teays Chapel League when he entered school in Fayette last September. Since that time he has been a willing Worker in the Fayette Church and League. He was an honor student when he graduated from the grade school and had been on the honor roll every month since entering high school. Besides his parents, he is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Farmer Sargent, of Sterling, Idaho; Woodford, Ernest and Alice Sargent of Blackfoot, Idaho; Mrs. Otis Howe, of Sedalia; Mrs. Milton Johnson, James and Durward Sargent, of Montrose, his grandmother, Mrs. J. S. Snapp, of the home, besides a host of other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held at Teays Chapel Wednesday afternoon.

On Thursday, December 14, 1922, the sad news was reported that J. B. Sargent had been found dead at his home, east of Montrose. As he was living all alone, his son, W. W. Sargent, went to see how he was getting along and found him lying on the kitchen floor dead. It seemed he had gotten up as usual and had gone into the kitchen, when death came and he passed out of this life into that home eternal. James Bird Sargent was born in Woodford county, Kentucky, November 3rd, 1835, and died December 14, 1922, at the age of 87 years, 1 month and 10 days. On April 8th, 1858, he was united in marriage to Ann E. Farmer, who preceded him to the grave fourteen years and nine months ago. To this union seven children were given -- three children preceding their mother and father to the grave; one died in infancy, and two sons -- G. H. Sargent, of Frankfort, Kentucky, at the age of 34 years; A. R.. Sargent, of Bates county, at the age of 39 years. Two daughters and two sons, survive: Mrs. W. H. Crook, of Appleton City, Mo.; Mrs. Clarence Nesbitt, of Clinton, Mo., and W. W. Sargent and J. S. Sargent, of Montrose. Besides his children, he leaves twenty-six grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren. In February, 1886, he moved with his entire family, from Franklin county, Kentucky, to Montrose, Henry county, Mo., and with the exception of two years, near Appleton City, in St. Clair county, and nine years in Bates county, he had made his home near Montrose. He was remarkably strong for one of his age, and seemed as well as usual a day or two before his death. Altho his strength was failing the past summer, he took great pride in his garden and truck patch and was never so contented as when he could be busy with his hoe, but God, who doeth all things well, bade him lay down his labors and come Home, where no toil and sorrows are known. As he had been a member of the Baptist church since early manhood, the funeral services were held at the Baptist church of Appleton City on Friday afternoon, midst a crowd of sorrowing friends. The remains were laid to rest by the side of his wife, in Appleton City's beautiful cemetery.

Isaac Sarles, a coal miner, while on duty separating the clay from the coal, failed to notice the dangerous condition of some slate and coal above his head and even did not heed the warning shout of another miner, before it was too late. With a loud noise the mass of slate and coal came crashing down, breaking his leg in two places and injuring him internally, death ensuing twenty-three hours afterwards. This adds another chapter to a miner's life. Sarles was fifty-three years old at the time of his death. He leaves a wife and six children, five boys and a little girl. He served three years and six months in the Union army; his pension papers were forwarded sometime ago and his widow will receive all pension due him up to the time of his death ere long. His burial took place on Sunday the 10th. The funeral sermon will be preached at the M.E. Church at Lewis next Sunday. Although the weather was inclement, all the miners, with a few exceptions, paid their last tribute to their late comrade, following the remains on foot over the rough country road to their last resting place. Rough may be the garments of a miner, and rough may be his speech and manner, but under that rough garment there beats a heart ever ready to help the distressed and the sick. (Note: The accident happened on January 8, 1892. Isaac served in Company "C" of the 49th Indiana Infantry during the Civil War. His military marker is located in Barton City Cemetery, Barton County, MO (near Liberal), but his body is buried near Lewis Station. The family story says both Isaac and his 18 year old son, Lafe, were killed in the same mine accident. - Mary Ann (Searles) Hoppe, Rogers, Arkansas mahoppe@specent.com)

Piper, his companion in the hunt, says he and the Judge drove to the Bronaugh farm Thursday afternoon for plover shooting. The drive was made in the Judge's buggy and near dusk they prepared to return home. The Judge unhitched his horse, got in the buggy and was driving down the road while Mr. Piper started across a field intending to meet up with him and had gone but a short distance when he heard a shot; looking around to see if the Judge had brought down a bird, was horrified to hear him exclaim, "My God, I've shot myself." Before he could reach him, the Judge had got out and ran some distance into J. W. Middlecoff's yard. The charge entered his right arm near the shoulder and was bleeding profusely. The arm was corded, the Judge placed in the buggy and Mr. Piper, gently yet swiftly, drove into town. Drs. Britts, Holcomb and Johnson were summoned and found the wound quite serious. Amputation was necessary and the arm was removed at the shoulder socket. a trying ordeal, yet bravely borne. With the waning night, his end dawned. The wound was mortal. Conscious of the fact, the Judge talked to his wife and friends throughout the night vigil and at fifteen of one Friday morning, his spirit took its flight. Mr. Piper thinks the Judge may have set his gun down cocked, while unhitching, and in driving off, jolted the gun so it fell to the left, muzzle toward him, causing the discharge. Frederick E. Savage was born in Ky. in 1836; came to St. Louis about 1857, where he read law a few months and was licensed by Judge W. T. Wood; proceeding at once to Henry county, where he taught a term of school near Calhoun; came to Clinton the following spring, 1858, and domiciled with R. F. Taylor, then sheriff; was elected Public Administrator in 1860; war breaking out, he was among the first to enlist in the cause of his beloved South, in the company of Col. Tom Owens, later joining the forces of Gen. John Morgan, and at the final surrender, was with "Old Cerro Gordo" Williams; returning to Clinton at the close of the war, he resumed the practice of law; was appointed by Gov. Hardin as probate Judge, vice Wm. L. Avery, deceased, and in 1874 was elected to fill out the unexpired term; in 1884 was elected State Representative. Was married in 1874 to Miss Lutie Mallory in Liberty at the residence of his brother-in-law, now of this city; Gen. B. G. Boone acting as his best man. He and his wife occupied an elegant home on East Green and while no children blessed them, they lived a useful and happy life. The wife and two sisters - one the wife of the Hon. John S. Williams of Ky., the other residing in Ill. or Ohio, and innumerable friends, mourn his sad and untimely taking off. Judge Savage was an upright citizen, a sound lawyer, a staunch Democrat and a gruff, good man. Peace to his ashes.

DEATH OF PROMINENT CLINTON BUSINESS MAN -- Dwight R. Sayles' Life Had Been Closely Interwoven with Civic, Educational and Religious Activities as Well as in Business -- The Silent Reaper who early or late claims all lives took to the shores of Eternity one of Clinton's most important business men, one of its finest fathers and splendid citizens when Dwight R. Sayles set sail with Him at 4:54 p. m. Friday, September 24. While friends and family realized the crisis was near, they prayed this good man might be spared to richer years with loved ones and community for he was that rare combination of public spirited citizen whose talents were directed to constructive building in home, church and school, the foundations of American life as well as to business. Having been ill for more than a year, last September he went to the Mayo hospital at Rochester, Minn., where he underwent an abdominal operation, returning home October 15. Recovering in part, he went back to the usual routine of his life, insofar as he was able, but the will was stronger than the body and he realized he was losing ground. Ten weeks ago he was taken to St. Luke's hospital, Kansas City, where a serious heart condition was recognized, whose heavy toll was Death. Yet he was conscious to the last, despite his pain, constantly hoping each day to be better. Dwight R. Sayles was born October 29, 1885, on a farm seven miles west of Lowry City, the only son of his parents, Ed D. Sayles and the late Barbara Warner Sayles. As a small boy he attended the country school at Ohio Post Office where his father, a native of Ohio, was then farming. Some years later he moved with his parents to Lowry City where Mr. Sayles, Sr., operated a lumber yard. There he attended the Lowry City Academy from which he went to Park College at Parkville, Mo., where after an accident that resulted in a broken collar bone and subsequent infection, he returned home. When he was again well, he entered the Gem City Business College at Quincy, Ill. Completing his course, he returned home for a short time and as a young man of 20 years of age in 1905 he went to Three Lakes, Wash., to a big lumber camp where he was bookkeeper, early manifesting a talent for the business which was to prove his life's work. In the little Washington town, he entered into community life with an interest for its betterment, and served the people as post master and as a member of their school board, as well as in various minor capacities. His parents in the mean time had moved to Clinton in 1909 where E. D. Sayles had established one of the town's largest businesses, and where he was anxious for his son also to make his home. Acquiescing with his father's wish in 1913 Dwight R. Sayles came to Clinton, lending his young enthusiasm and business ability to the building up of a lumber yard that was complete in service, human in its dealings and foresighted in development. November 26, 1916, Mr. Sayles and Miss Edith Lane, a teacher in the Franklin school and daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Lane of Clinton, were married, giving to Clinton one of its most ideal homes where the warmth of love and the beauty of congenial interests filled their lives. They built a modern bungalow at 307 North Third street, where they lived until 1920 when they built their present large home at 306 North Second street. Two sons. Dwight, Jr., and Sammy Lane, and one daughter, Margaret Lindsay, completed the family circle -- delightful children, bright, alert, leaders among their friends, just as their parents have been, and idealized by their father. So great was his love that every plan to insure their protection and safety possible to him were made. Their success was his delight and deep affection and respect he inspired in them, his greatest joy. Into his allotted span of years he crowded so much activity and labored in so many fields, never sparing himself, always thinking of others, that manifold works praise him. He was a member of the board of education 10 years, having served as its president five years, conscientious and firm in opinions and the discharge of responsibility. He was a member of the Southern Methodist official church board and belonged to the John Wesley Society during its active years. He was also a Mason, honored and respected. When time permitted he was a worthy member of Rotary, and at the time of his passing was a member of the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, the Artesian Park Board, and of the Clinton Boat and Fishing Club, enjoying it not alone for the sport it afforded and the hours of relaxation in a busy life, but through his children, who love the open and are all fine swimmers. In every activity, civic or church, he was wholly adequate. He loved people, and his friendly hand was ever ready to aid even the least of them and many a poor man's cottage or darkey's cabin has been shingled or repaired with but a fraction of the cost paid. Mingled with the grief of parting is gratitude for his great goodness and the bountiful heritage of courage and fineness he leaves his devoted wife and children. In the realm of the Tomorrow he stands to see them bravely carry on -- Death loves the Shining Mark! Surviving Dwight R. Sayles are his family above mentioned, his father, E. D. Sayles, to whom he was a right hand of usefulness and devotion, and three sisters: Mrs. Logan Armstrong and Irene Wright of Hawk Point, Mo., and Mrs. Esther Sly of Lakeside, Calif. His mother passed to long sleep in 1912. The funeral services were conducted at the Franklin Street Methodist church Sunday afternoon.

COUNTRY LOSES VETERAN MERCHANT LUMBERMAN -- E. D. Sayles Died Saturday After 30 Years of Business in Clinton -- Nearing His 82nd Birthday -- Preceded in Death by Only Son Last Fall -- E. D. Sayles, for some thirty years a beloved and respected lumber man of Clinton, at 2:40 a.m. August 6, reached the end of a long, worthy life in which his 82nd milestone would have been passed the day he was laid back for his long sleep into the dust from which all men come. General grief follows the loss of this fine man, whose splendid son, Dwight R. Sayles, last September answered Death's inevitable call -- making two irreparable losses in a few months for family, friends, community. E. D. Sayles was born August 8, 1856, at Talmadge, Ohio, and when quite young he knew real responsibility for his father died when he was but seven and when he was 14 years of age, his mother and her two sons moved to near Lowry City, Missouri, where he helped her operate a farm. Miss Barbara Warner became his wife February 23, 1882, and for a time they lived near Ohio Post Office where his son, Dwight, and three daughters were born and where Mr. Sayles continued farming. For a year they lived near North Station, Henry County, which was a coal center at the time, and where Mr. Sayles operated a general store. Going in 1892 to Lowry City, where he saw the future in the lumber business, he decided to turn his wide experience and practical knowledge to that field. Success here was equal to that he had experienced in all his activities. But his interests were not limited to lumber. If several years he served the Lowry City bank as cashier, he was a member of the city council and school board, and actively supported the, building of a new church during his residence there. His public spirit was unbounded and the upbuilding of his community his great ambition. He advocated more than any one citizen the establishment of the Lowry City Academy and helped finance it when it became an actuality, and personal pleasure was his when his children graduated there. He retained his interest in the lumber business in Lowry even after coming to Clinton, being a partner in the Styles-Harris firm. When an opening in the lumber business offered itself in Clinton, he came with his family here some 30 years ago, and bought the lumber yard at the corner of Main and Green streets. Under his wise jurisdiction, the business grew and prospered, for Mr. Sayles was considered to be one of the best informed lumber men in southwest Missouri, with nearly 50 years' experience. Banking and financial circles also knew his wise counsel and safe advice. He served on the Clinton school board from 1924-1927, and his son succeeded him. He never rejected responsibility and was at the back of many civic enterprises, with a great capacity for hard work, that began early each morning and continued through long days. His pleasures, he enjoyed with the same energy, yet he was always a modest man, more a person of acts than speech. His thought was deep however, and his judgment of people keen and accurate. He was a man of the highest integrity, fair to his competitors, just in every dealing, generous to his friends, sympathetic to every cause and devoted to his family. A strong Presbyterian, in which church he had been brought up, his influence was Christian in every act and his irreproachable standards made him a power for good among men in all walks of life, from the men who worked for him, the poor persons to whom he extended credit, to the most important citizen whose large checks he honored. Death first broke their family circle's, few years after they came to Clinton, when Mrs. Sayles died, and for three years his daughter, Esther, kept the home together. February 10, 1916, Miss Christine Melton became his wife and after several years they built the attractive home at Second and Clinton streets where they have since resided. Surviving Mr. Sayles are his widow; three daughters, Mrs. Logan Armstrong of Hawk Point, Mo.; Mrs. Irene Wright of St. Louis and Mrs. Altho G. Sly, Lakeside, Calif.; eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren, and Mrs. Dwight Sayles, widow of his lately deceased only son, whose passing was a blow he took with courage but heartbreak. He also leaves one brother, W. L. Sayles, of Horming, Calif. They all bore him the most tender regard for his nature was so mild, gentle, kind and generous that the good he found in others, they saw in him and all men loved him. The funeral services were conducted Monday at the home.
