HEMPHILL, John William Oct. 30, 1844
McMinn Co., TN
July 7, 1902
Cassville,
Barry Co., MO
Research Note: Obit by Glenda Rowland - John W. Hemphill died Monday morning at 7 o'clock at his home east of Cassville following an illness from dropsy. The deceased had been on the decline for many months, in fact ever since he went to White River to reside where dropsy symptoms first became evident. He applied to physicians in vain for relief. The disease grew until he no longer thought of the days he would live but looked peacefully on death as a resistless blow at pain. During his last sickness he would rally after operations had been performed but it would only last a few days. During one of these interims he visited Cassville, only a few weeks ago, just after he had moved from White River to the home east of Cassville. His many friends were more than glad to meet him but saw in his emaciated form the shadows of dissolution. The Judge, ever jovial, deviated not a wit from his happy disposition and met all with a smile and a good word. He was cognizant of the approaching end but had no fears. He looked at the receding day as calmly as he viewed the enemy on a battle field and when the last ray of light faded he wore the patient smile of one who was satisfied. His life was an open book. Human beings are not infallible but to Judge Hemphill the public will accord the jeweled crown of high inspiration and benevolent intentions. He was a man that asperity nor good fortune could not change. The deceased leaves a wife, four sons and two daughters; James C. and W. F. Hemphill of McDowell, H. M. Hemphill of Purdy and G. W. Hemphill near Cassville and Mrs. Rachael Bartmess of Golden and Mrs. Cordia Adair [should have been Mrs. Cordia Clark, Adair, OK] of Indian Territory. Four sisters, Margaret Bayless and Sarah Lowry of Purdy, Angeline Cates of Texas, Rachael Lyner of Tennessee and one brother, Taylor Hemphill of Wyoming survive him. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon at four o'clock at Horner cemetery, Rev. Chappell in charge. The remains were laid to rest in the cemetery near by, the request of the deceased just before he died. Judge Hemphill was a native of McMinn Co., Tenn., where he was born Aug. 30, 1844 to Thos. and Melvina Hemphill. In 1851 his parents moved to this county, locating in Dodge Hollow, his father dying in 1855. The following year they returned to Tennessee, where they remained until 1871, when they came to stay.

I have done much traveling since entering the service. Have gone through Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I am now at Camp Merritt, N. J. This is a very nice place. I went over to New York last night. It is certainly a large city. I have also visited Washington D.C. I have sure had a chance to see lots since I left home. I do not know yet when I will get to come home. I was on the "pond" one night. I cannot answer all the letters I have received but I was awfully glad to receive them. I now weigh 230 pounds, including my pack and all. We walked five miles when we marched to the "pond" and carried three blankets, half a tent, some tent pegs, pole, ax, one pair of extra shoes, mess kit, overcoat, raincoat and I do not know what else. I am glad you folks have moved to Roaring river. Think I would like it there myself on account of the good water. Your son, Floyd. - Henbest Headstone Census

His death certificate has birth date of Dec. 17, 1837 and is also in the obit. He was married and a farmer and a son of Isaac Horner and Mary "Polly" Moore. Bert Horner of Cassville, MO was the informant. - August 28, 1913, Thursday, Cassville Republican - Amos Horner for years a well known and highly esteemed citizen of this community died early Monday morning, Aug. 25, at his home about 2 miles southeast of Cassville after an illness of several weeks of general debility, aged 75 years, 8 months, and 8 days. For some time he had been on a general decline but was not confined to his bed until a few days prior to his death. Up to a short time ago he was able to occasionally come to town and spend a few hours with friends. A few days ago he became worse and within a short time his illness warranted the end to the members of the family, neighbors, and friends. Amos Horner was born in Perry County, Tennessee, December 17, 1837. That state was his home until thirteen years of age when he came with his parents to Missouri and settled in Newton county. After a year's residence in that county the family moved to near Cassville to what is known as the Horner Spring. His parents, Isaac and Mary Horner, were natives of Tennessee and were the parents of twelve children. They were Nancy Shewmake, Betsy Brook, Serena Neeley, Sally Brook, Anna McCary, Mary Mitchell, Martha Curry, Caroline Sicks, Josephine Farwell, Garet (Jarrett), Russell, and Amos Horner. Only two children of this family are living. They are Mrs. Sicks of Colorado and Mrs. Neely of California. In 1878, Mr. Horner was married to Martha Jane Smith who survives. Nine children were born to this union, seven of whom are yet living. They are Bert Horner of Cassville, Mrs. James Talbert of California, Oliver, Mrs. E. K. Horine, Russell, Lucene and Loren all of Cassville. Mr. Horner was a veteran of the Civil War. He enlisted in the Union army in 1863 in Company E, Second Arkansas Cavalry and served until he was honorably discharged at the end of the war. With the exception of a few years in the latter part of his life he resided on the farm his parents homesteaded when they came to this county. During all this time he had the esteem and confidence of everyone who knew him. Early in life he professed faith in Christ and his character of citizenship was always for the advancement of his community in influences for good.

HORNER, John Turner, Dr. Sept. 22, 1829
Perry Co., TN
June 26, 1911
Barry Co., MO
Research Note: From the death certificate the information was added that he was a son of Spencer Horner, born TN, and his mother was not named. Amos Horner of Cassville, MO was the informant. He was a physician. - Son of Spencer Pleasant Horner and Permelia Turner. He first married Susannah Boen and second Mary Gilliam. - A family history was told in 1942 by Professor John Turner Horner, to Eva Horner, his daughter, about Dr. John Turner Horner of Cassville, Missouri: As the story goes John wanted to marry a poor girl but his father, Spencer, wanted him to marry a girl with more wealth, Susannah Boen (maybe Bowen). On one occasion, John had stopped to visit with Susannah Boen. Spencer happened by and took John's horse, insuring a lengthy visit with Susannah. He married (1) Susannah "Susan" Boen 1846 in Johnson County, Arkansas. She was born Mar. 9, 1829 in Perry County, Tennessee, and died Apr. 10, 1913 in Cato, Barry County, Missouri, the daughter of Lewis Boen and Mary Hodge of Ozark, Johnson County, Arkansas. Their marriage was not a happy one. One day, and six children later, he came home and she hit him over the head with a broomstick. He left and never came back. It was during these early years of marriage that John was away a lot of the time in his medical training. He received primary and secondary education in Arkansas and taught school. When he was 21 he began his studies in medicine. His preceptor was Dr. Forley of Clarksville, Arkansas. He moved to Webster County, Missouri with his parents but they returned to Johnson County by 1860. In 1860 he entered the medical college in New Orleans for two years. He married (2) Mary Gilliam, the daughter of Dow and Celia Gilliam, about 1865 in Webster County, Missouri. She had previously married Francis Marion Dunlap before 1865. It is believed that he died in the Civil War leaving her to care for two small children. She was born December 20, 1844 in Arkansas and died December 9, 1929 in Cassville, Barry County, Missouri. John and Mary met on the wagon train from Johnson County, Arkansas to Webster County, Missouri in 1864. They remained in Webster County for several years before John set up a allopath medical practice in Cassville, Barry County, Missouri in 1866. He was licensed to practice in Missouri in 1884. She and John are buried in Cassville Cemetery, Cassville, Barry County, Missouri. His dad (Spencer Horner) was a slave owner, but he was a Union man. When war came up all his boys joined the Union Army except Dad (Dr. John Turner Horner). The Confederates conscripted him, so he was on one side, and his three brothers were on the other side. His (Dr. John Turner Horner) younger brother was Will. He (John Turner Horner) managed to get away, slipped out on them and joined the Union Army. Dad (Dr. John Turner Horner) and his brother got a furlough to go home to visit their folks. He would dodge around through the mountains to go to the house at night, etc. Dad (Dr. John Turner Horner) said his horse needed shoeing and he had to go out on the mountain 5 miles to get it shod. He told his brother, Will, and his father Spencer Horner that whatever they did, never go to the house in the daytime. But the mother (Permelia Turner Horner) was killing a chicken so the father Spencer Horner and Will went to the house. Wasn't long till about 20 rebels came riding up. Grandfather (Spencer Horner) went out into the potato patch and said, 'I surrender!' and they shot him down. Will ran through the lot and up on the mountain side and was shot in the head. He lived several days in a cave. Dad (Dr. John Turner Horner) had a squad of men, including Wash Middleton and Fate Arnold, desperate men, to go back into the hills and clean out that bunch. They killed 17 out of the 20 bushwhackers. Dr. John Turner Horner knew that after he was conscripted and deserted the Rebel Army, if he ever became a prisoner, they'd shoot him. That's why he never got on the Union Army record. He was either afraid, or too careless to get an honorable discharge. Dad's (Dr. John Turner Horner) squad was equal in number to the other squads. One day they met in a corn field and each man picked out his man. Dad picked out the leader; couldn't shoot him, threw his pistol at him. They caught one man walking between his wife and his mother. Wash Middleton shot him down. One night they surrounded a house where the bushwhackers were having a dance. Wash Middleton took the man who killed grandfather (Spencer Horner) by the hair and dragged him out, 'Now you'll kill a helpless old man' and killed him. Father (Dr. John Turner Horner) helped to take a refugee train of Union people out of Clarksville, Arkansas, to Marshfield, Webster County, Missouri. That was where dad met mother (Mary Gillian Dunlap) and her two girls, in that refugee train. Fate Arnold would volunteer to go through 20 miles of Rebel lines to get ammunition, and he'd always come back. Once he jerked his horse's head up, and the horse got shot in the head. Arnold got wounded. He stayed with my father (Dr. John Turner Horner) in Marshfield, Missouri until he got well. Mother (Mary Gillian Dunlap) said there'd be a pool of blood under his chair. In Marshfield the folks were suspicious of the Union soldiers who came up from Arkansas. - You can find more of these memories at findagrave.com, Horner Cemetery, John Turner Horner.

I am getting along fine. We have moved since I wrote you before. We are about a hundred miles from where we were. It is a nice camp here but it is not as good as the other camp. There is no town of any size near here. We were right in town at the other camp. I ran onto Vern Joslin here at this camp. He has been here ever since he came to France. He runs a motorcycle for the officers. I guess we will get our wagons and everything we need in a few days. We are drilling a little every day now. This part of France is different from any that I have yet seen. It is hilly here, something like the Ozark country. All the country I had seen here before this was smooth country. They do not have any large farms here, all are small patches, about an acre in a field. They cut their hay and grain with a sickle and rake it by hand. They have ox carts and work two oxen to two wheel carts. They work the yoke on the horns instead of on the shoulders. They also work dogs to carts. When they work more than one horse to plows they do not work them side by side but put one in front of the other. They do not drive the horses but have someone lead the front horse. The farmers build their houses and their barns under the same enclosure. They live in one room and have their cows and horse in the other room. The poorer class live most any way but the better to do class are nice and live well. They live in fine houses and dress well. They use small trains in France. They look like toys in comparison with the trains used in the United States. We soldiers get to ride most of the time in box cars. We just crowd in like so many cattle. It does not take long to go across France. They have the Y. M. C. A. headquarters over here, better ones than they have at the home camps. I do not know what the soldiers would do were it not for the Y. M. C. A. They have church on Sunday and during the week picture shows and entertainment for us. There are a number of American girls working at the headquarters. I would like to send you some picture views of this country but I can't send them. I have been to some of those old castles you have heard so much about where the old lords of the estates used to live. They are great sights. I saw one that they claim is over 1,800 years old. From your son, Loren Horner, Co. F. 110 Am. Train - Cassville Republican, May 8, 1919 - Lucien Horner said Monday that they were expecting his brother, Loren, Home most any day.
