John Calvin Welch, collector of Dent County, and one of the prominent citizens of Spring Creek Township, is a native of Dent County, Mo., and was born November 8, 1840. He is a son of Thomas and Eliza (Reddick) Welch, and grandson of John Welch, who was a native of North Carolina, and at an early date immigrated to Tennessee. He resided in Weakley County, Tenn., a number of years, and then came to Dent County, Mo., locating six miles west of the county seat, where he died about 1857, at the age of ninety years. He was a soldier in the war of 1812, with Gen. Jackson. Thomas Welch was born in Tennessee in 1812, was married in
Weakley County, of that State, and then came to Dent County, Mo., the same year as his father. He settled on Dry Fork, six miles from Salem, where he now resides. He was the owner of 600 acres of land, but being of a benevolent disposition, has given it all to his children. He is yet living, and is one of the pioneer settlers of Dent County. When first settling there his nearest neighbor was forty miles south, and he would frequently go twenty miles to a house raising, and twenty-five and thirty miles to mill. His wife, Eliza (Reddick) Welch, died in 1852, and after her death Mr. Welch married Mrs. Caroline Jadwin, nee Howell, daughter of Christopher Howell. Thomas Welch is the father of twelve children, seven by the first marriage and five by the second, all of whom lived to be grown: Melissa, wife of Joseph M. Howell; Joseph M. (deceased); John C., Thomas J., Eliza, wife of Jasper Plank; Jane, wife of J. S. Cooley; Phoebe E., wife of W. C. Inman; Current R., General A., James G., Josephine, wife of Samuel Skeeters, and Albert S. John C. Welch attained his growth on a farm, and made his home with his parents until the breaking out of the late war, when he cast his destinies with the South. In 1861 he enlisted in Freeman's company, Missouri State Militia, for six months, but at the end of six months he was captured and taken to Alton where he was retained until September 1862. He was then exchanged, and enlisted in Company F, Ninth Missouri Infantry, as orderly-sergeant. After the fight at Pleasant Hill he was promoted to the rank of second lieutenant, and surrendered at Shreveport, La., in June, 1865. In December of the following year he married Miss Martha E. Wofford, daughter of Smith Wofford, and a native of Middle
Tennessee, born in 1846. To this marriage were born seven children: James C., Thomas F., William G., Joseph M., Iona, Bertha, Walter H. After the war Mr. Welch resumed farming, and continued at this until 1886, when he was elected collector of Dent County, by a majority of 262, on the Democratic ticket. He is a member of the I. O. O. F., and his wife is a member of the Missionary Baptist Church.

Ransom Reddick, of Dent County, Missouri, was born in Weakley County, Tennessee, in 1830, and is the son of David and Mary B. (Martin) Reddick, who were born in South and North Carolina in 1789 and 1794, and died in Dent County, Mo., in 1851 and 1884, respectively. The father was of Dutch descent, and came to Missouri in December 1837, where he spent the remainder of his days. Mrs. Reddick made her home with her son Ransom after his marriage, and from early womanhood was a member of the Baptist Church. All of her children grew to maturity, and Ransom is her ninth child. He has resided in Mo., since his seventh year, and
made his home with his parents until his fathers death, and two years later was married to Miss Susan W. Inman, who was born in Williamson County, Tennessee, in 1835, and is a daughter of Ezekial and Lillie Inman, who came to Missouri, in 1839. To Mr. and Mrs. Reddick two children were born, James W., being the only one living. He is married, resides with his parents, and tills the home farm. In July 1862, Mr. Reddick enlisted in Company E, Missouri Infantry, and served as a private for about two years, when he returned home, and was engaged in farming and mining in Phelps County one year. He then gave the whole of his attention to farming and stock raising until 1871, when he came to Salem, and was engaged in hauling iron ore for two years. From that time until 1879 he farmed in Phelps County and at the latter date returned to Salem, and kept a boarding house in connection with his teaming. Since 1880 he has resided on his present farm, which now consists of 179 acres, with 110 acres under cultivation. His land is well improved, with good buildings and he has just erected a barn 30 x 50 feet. His wife is a member of the Christian Church, and he is a Democrat, and cast his first presidential vote for Buchanon.

    Judge Jerome Napoleon Gunier was born in Detroit, Mich., in 1824, and there made his home until 1837, when he went to Marion County, Ohio, and began working on a farm, and afterward learned the plasterer’s trade. In 1844 he removed to Howard County, Ind., and helped to roll logs where the public square of Kokomo is now situated. The Miami Indians were very numerous at that time. In 1846 Mr. Gunier married Miss Mary Adaline Inman, who was born in Erie County, Penn., in 1830, and the following children are the result of their union: Elizabeth, wife of Alexander Younger; Charles; Abigail, wife of Samuel Street, a harness-maker of Stockton; Viola, Stringer; Martha Jane, wife of Frank Lorton; Andrew J., Frances M., Mary Jane, Mina, and Ida, wife of Charles Wright. In 1858 Judge Gunier removed from Indiana to Cedar County, Mo., and located near Stockton, where he has since resided. He farmed and worked at his trade until 1878, then followed farming alone until 1886, when he was elected Probate Judge of Cedar County, on the republican ticket, of which party he has been a member for many years, having been a Democrat previous to the war. In August, 1862, he enlisted in Company A, Fifteenth Missouri Cavalry, U.S.A., the regiment taking part in the fights at Springfield, and was with Price and Shelby on their famous raids. He was orderly sergeant of his company, being promoted after enlisting, and was discharged at Springfield
on the 30th of June, 1865. He is now a member of the Hubbard Post No. 194, G.A.R.

DESCENDANT OF PIONEER DENT COUNTY FAMILY DIED SATURDAY MORN.

One of the Oldest Residents. Had Been in Good Health Only Until Recently. -- Mrs. Jane [WELCH] COOLEY Dead.

    Saturday morning Aunt Jane COOLEY, old resident of this county, and descendant of one of the county's pioneer families, succumbed to pneumonia, at her home on Dry Fork west of Salem. Mrs. COOLEY was buried Tuesday at Round Pond cemetery, amid a bank of flowers sent by her loved ones. We are indebted to an old friend of the family for the following:
In Memoriam

Sarah Jane (WELCH) COOLEY.

    Sarah Jane COOLEY was born March 11, 1847, eight miles west of Salem, and departed this life Saturday morning January 5, 1929, at the age of 81 years, 9 months and 24 days. Death came from an attack of pneumonia.
    Sarah Jane COOLEY was the daughter of Thomas J. and Eliza WELCH. On April 14, 1867, she became the wife of John COOLEY which union was a most happy one until death of her husband April 8, 1901.
    "Aunt Jane" as she has been familiarly known by all her friends as well as her many nieces and nephews for several year, was the sister of Morgan WELCH; Jeff WELCH; Eliza PLANK, who was the wife of Jasper PLANK; Melissa HOWELL, who was the wife of Joseph M. HOWELL; and Phoebe INMAN, who was the wife of Carroll INMAN; all of whom have preceded her to that land from which no traveler returns, that House not built with hands, eternal in the heavens.
    She also was the half-sister of C. R. WELCH, known as "Dock"; G. A. (Fon) WELCH; Jim WELCH; Mrs. Joda SKEETERS, wife of Sam SKEETERS of Jack, Mo.; and Albert Sidney WELCH, known as "Sid"; all of whom are living except "Dock" and "Fon".
    To her marriage to John COOLEY, the following children were born: Henry who lives in California; Edd who resides North of Salem, Ammy who married John JOHNS, former assessor of Dent County and now Associate Judge of the County Court; Harve of Hot Springs, Ark.; Tom of Divernon, ILL.; John, Will, and Cleve of near Salem; Lettie, wife of Walter ADAMS of near Anutt; and Lee of California.
    Soon after her marriage to John COOLEY in 1867 she with her husband located on their farm on Dry Fork, eight miles west of Salem, where the above mentioned family was reared, and where the deceased spent her entire life.
    "Aunt Jane" was happiest when looking after her home and children. She was not content after she had reared her own large family but prevailed on helping rear her grand children.
    Deceased was a follower of her savior for the greater part of her life. "Aunt Jane" was a woman of wonderful physical and mental vitality and was able to attend to her business affairs until the fever struck her. 
    She has had the good fortune to enjoy good health most of her life, and did her own house work up to the time she was stricken with pneumonia fever about one week befor[e] she died.
    To know "Aunt Jane" was to love her. She was one of the kindest and most unselfish women the writer ever had the pleasure to know, sweet in disposition, soft and gentle voice with a smile for every one.
    Besides many, many friends, she leaves 10 children, 49 grand children, and 48 great grand children to mourn her loss.
    Funeral services were conducted by Rev. E. F. MANESS.
    She was laid to rest in Round Pond cemetery, Tuesday, January 8, 1929. Beside her husband's resting place and in the community of her ancestors back as far as a great great grand father--who was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, a great grand father who was a soldier of the War of 1812, and a brother who was a soldier in the Civil War. Six of her big stalwart sons acted as pall bearers and gently carried their mother to her last resting place. May her sweet life be a guide and example for those left to follow her.

    The years passed swiftly; Wayne also raised and sold Missouri mules; Catharine suffered the loss of her left eye in a tragic wood cutting accident.

Sixth '59 Fatality in Springfield

Sunday Crashes Kill 3 Persons

    High speed accidents yesterday in Springfield, near Aurora, and Rolla, left three persons dead, 13 injured, and rocketed the traffic death toll in the Ozarks during October to nine.
    Springfield's sixth fatality for the year was reported and the year's total for the area was increased to 135 dead. The in-city tragedy came just eight days after the death of a youthful bicyclist.
Dying yesterday were:
    Pierson Inmon, 50, 729 West Tampa; Ronald Warren Waddle, 21, Billings; Olin S. Shaw, Jr., 16, Lemay.
    Police and state troopers noted that in the three fatalities, high speed was the primary factor in causing the crashes.
    The outburst of violent death on the highways and streets Sunday followed two traffic deaths Saturday and two Friday, all of which also involved high speeds.
    Inmon, a driver for the Dickey Transfer Company and who also drove a Springfield Newspapers, Inc. delivery truck to Monett on Sundays, died in a fiery crash at the intersection of Dollison and Walnut about noon. The crash hospitalized four other persons with burns.
    Taken to St. John's Hospital and in satisfactory condition today are Wallace Flanigan, 18, Route 8, driver of the car in which Inmon was riding; Alva Lee Payton, 40, 801 North Rogers; Olman Herbert Freeman, 45, 801 North Rogers. Taken to Burge Hospital was Bill Wilbanks, 30, 801 North Rogers. All received second and third degree burns on the body and other possible injuries.
    Sgt. Albert Turner and Officer Ralph Jackson said the men had been moving supplies from the former office at Bottenfield's, Inc., 317 East Walnut, to the firm's new office in the 1100 block St. Louis, and apparently were on a lunch hour jaunt when the tragedy occurred.

* * *

    The officers said witnesses reported the Chevrolet, driven by young Flanigan, sped west on Trafficway, almost struck the rear of another vehicle, then cut through the Thompson Sales Company driveway and headed south on Dollison at excessive speed.
    The driver told police the stop sign at Walnut and Dollison loomed up so suddenly he didn't have time to stop before his auto was clipped on the rear fender by a 1959 Ford station wagon driven by Charles Holland, 56, 311 Cordova Court.
    The Chevrolet overturned and burst into flames as it screeched along the pavement on its right side, hit the curb, and slammed into a retaining wall on the southeast corner.
    Payton and Willbanks managed to climb out quickly through a window and Flanigan followed. Freeman said he held his breath although the car was engulfed in flames, and tried to reach Inmon, whose clothing was burning.
    Freeman had to abandon the rescue attempt, however, and climb to safety. Firemen summoned to the scene set the car upright and extinguished the flames. Police said the firemen made an attempt to get Inmon out of the car but were prevented from doing so by intense heat.
    Inmon's body was identified by A. L. Dickey, owner of the transfer company for which he worked. Police were not certain today as to what action would be taken against Flanigan, but were certain he would be charged because of negligence involved in the crash.

* * *

    Coroner Ralph Thieme said an inquest into Inmon's death will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Greene County Courthouse.

* * *

    Inmon is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; two sons, Gene, of the home, and J. C. stationed at Lackland Air Force Base, Tex.; two daughters, Mary Ann and Ruby, Jay, Fla.; three brothers, Ray, Leesburg, Fla., Buck and Rex, Lakeland, Fla., and a sister, Mrs. Merle Sawyer, Jacksonville, Fla.

Three Others Injured as Traffic Toll Soars

Young Mother Killed In Ash Grove Crash

A mother of three teen-age children was killed last night in a grinding head on collision at the north edge of Ash Grove which injured her husband, daughter and an elderly Morrisville resident.
    Mrs. Mary Frances Inman, 38, was apparently killed instantly, becoming the fifth person to die in traffic crashes in the Ozarks this month.
    Troopers said she was a passenger in a 1959 Chevrolet sedan, driven southward by her husband, Lowell, 38, when it was rammed head on by a northbound 1947 Chevrolet coach driven by Charles Cossins, about 72, Morrisville, on Route V at 7:30 p.m.

* * *

    Inman said he was taking his wife and daughter to a play at the Ash Grove High School, having left his sons at home, and remembered nothing of the crash except meeting Cossins' vehicle on a hillcrest. Troopers said Cossins was driving on the wrong side of the road.
    Mrs. Inman is survived by her husband, Lowell, and daughter, Nancy, by twin sons, Franklin and Frederick, 14; her mother, Mrs. Paul Kapke, Sr., Pleasant Hill; one brother, Paul, Jr., Pleasant Hill.

Tragic Crash On 13 Kills 4 in Family

Lone Survivor, Youngster, 9, Badly Injured

    The lone surviving member of a Kansas City family, victims of a car-truck crash night in the Ozarks, remains in “poor” condition in St. John’s hospital.
    He is Stanley Inman, 9, of the community of Nashua, a suburb at the north edge of Kansas City on U.S. 169.
    Killed in the 8:25 p.m. crash on Mo. 13, about 4 1/2 miles north of Collins, were the boy’s parents, Joe and Ruby Inman, both 36, his brother Joe. S. Inman, 17, and his sister, Donna Jean, 13.
    Young Stanley was first taken to Osceola Hospital for treatment, then transferred to St. John’s Hospital. He suffered head and internal injuries, according to Trooper Winton Blunt, of Hermitage, who investigated the accident.
    St. Clair County Coroner Forest B. Goodrich said no inquest into the deaths will be held. The bodies were taken to Goodrich Funeral Home in Osceola.

* * *

    Trooper Blunt reported Joe S. Inman was driving the family car northward, pulling a tandem trailer, and was passing a northbound tractor-trailer truck driven by Paul West, 34, Route 5, Springfield.
    The youth met a southbound tractor-trailer truck driven by Julius Edding, 56, of Hamilton, Ohio, and collided with the left front of the vehicle. The Inman car was demolished and Edding’s truck received extensive damage. There was no contact involving the truck driven by West, who pulled to the shoulder in an effort to give young Inman passing room when he saw the accident taking shape.
    The Inman family had recently decided to move to Jasper, Ark., where Inman’s father lived. The family visited the home of Inman’s brother, Otto, at 2506 East Avenue, and had left hi home at 7:15 p.m. Thursday.
    “They were going back to Kansas City to pick up their furniture in the trailer they were towing when the crash occurred,” a member of the brother’s family said today.
    The crash was the worst, in terms of numbers killed in the Ozarks in a single wreck, since March 4, when 4 men were fatally injured in a two-car crash on Mo. 244 about 12 miles west of Springfield. April 8, 1966

'Sin-Sick Society'

Hundreds Pay Tribute To Deputy

by FRANK FARMER
Leader & Press Staff Writer

    “This is how far our society has drifted from all of the things that make life safe to live. This is not something that happened in Los Angeles or Chicago, but it came to us, for some men have not taken the time to evaluate the things of life.
    “I would far rather be Jerry - than the man that fired the bullet, for he must find himself in the damnation of the law.”
    With these emotion-filled words, and in an emotion-filled voice, Dr. David Cavin today delivered the eulogy of Greene County Deputy Sheriff Jerry Lee Inman, who was shot to death Saturday at the age of 27.

* * *

    The services were held in the spacious chapel of the High Street Baptist Church, and besides several hundred friends, large contingents of the Greene County Sheriff's office, Springfield Police Department and State Highway patrol, were present to pay their respects. Numerous county officials, including the county's three circuit judge's, were present.
    At the end of the services, dozens of friends of the young deputy sheriff, and of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. P. D. Inman, of 501 Ildereen, stopped to kiss the tear-stained face of the mother, to press the hand of the stricken father. Young Inman, an Air Force veteran who joined Sheriff Mickey Owen's staff in 1966, was an only child.

* * *

    Dr. Cavin began the ceremony by saying, “We pay tribute today to a sin-sick society, which cannot long endure without law and order. Decency must remain on the throne if society is to exist...

“It would be a crime to what has already been committed if we do not learn something from this terrible ordeal. At 10 minutes after 3 last Saturday, my phone rang. It rings often at night, and most of it is bad news, for under cover of darkness, bad things happen. I could hardly believe my ears when I heard Jerry had been killed. I was asked to tell the parents.
 
“I asked myself, ‘What could I say to them? How anything I could say could equate such a tragedy?’ But I will remember all my life the words of his mother afterward.
“She said, ‘Dr. Cavin, thank God for God's promises. If we didn't have them, we couldn't have anything. We can't have Jerry again. But we have God's promises.’ ”

    A great bank of flowers flanking the casket paid silent tribute to the deputy sheriff. At the left was a floral replica of a Greene County Sheriff's star; on the right a floral replica of a Springfield Police Department badge. A spray of red roses was sent by members of Troop D of the state patrol.
    Burial was in White Chapel Cemetery under direction of Klingner. May 27, 1968

Three Die on City Streets

Police Try to Learn Who Drove Death Car

    A police investigation was continuing this morning into a four-vehicle pileup last night in the 2900 block West Chestnut Expressway that claimed the lives of two people.
    Police were attempting to determine who, among four occupants, was driving the auto that reportedly pulled into traffic on Chestnut Expressway, colliding with one auto and causing two other vehicles to crash.
    Two of the occupants were killed and two injured.
    It was one of two fatal auto accidents last night in the city. A two car collision in the 1900 block West Sunshine took the life of one person.
    The victims:
    Mrs. Dorothy Long, 29, of 1246 South Scenic;
    Patrick James Walker, 27, also of the Scenic address;
    Sandra L. Inmon, 27, of 1655 East Dale.

* * *

    The crash which resulted in death to Mrs. Inmon occurred shortly after 5 p.m. as she was leaving her job at the Hoffman-Taff Company, 1915 West Sunshine.

* * *

    A plant employee told Officer Don Carpenter that the woman and other employees had been slightly late leaving the building because they had attended a safety talk. At the talk, the employees reportedly were warned to use extra caution while driving onto Sunshine in front of the company, police said.
    Police said Mrs. Inmon was knocked from her small foreign auto and dragged some 126 feet along the pavement by the other auto.
    According to Carpenter, the woman was pulling south from the firm’s driveway when she was observed by 16-year-old Gary Everett Owens, 549 South Hillcrest, who estimated the speed of his westbound car at 40 to 45 miles an hour.
    The youth, who was in the right lane, told police he slowed when he saw the car pull into his lane. As he headed toward the left lane to avoid her, he said, her vehicle also moved into that lane.

* * *

    The smaller vehicle spun when the collision occurred, and Mrs. Inmon was tossed out, dragged across the median and along the pavement. She had been alone in her vehicle, as was Owens.
    Mrs. Inmon, a resident of Springfield 20 years, worked as a secretary at Hoffman-Taff.
    She is survived by a daughter, April, of the home, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Thompson, of the home; a brother, John, 2310 West Kearney, and maternal grandfather, John Sohn, St. Clair.

His untimely death is a particular tragic loss to our movement."

INMAN, Carl Richard - 1922 - 1996 

    Carl Richard Inman, 73, Deepwater, died Friday, April 5, 1996, at the Golden Valley Memorial Hospital. - Carl R. Inman was born December 16, 1922, in the family home in Thurman, Ia., the youngest of three sons to Harry L. & Lillie Belle Inman. His father operated a garage at Clearmont and was a resident there since 1931 until his death December 4, 1974. His mother, Lillie Belle Kline Inman was a hardworking mother who loved her garden and caring for her husband and sons. Her popcorn balls are well remembered by all her grandchildren. She entered into rest December 25, 1985. Dad graduated from Clearmont High School as valedictorian. He and his team members excelled in basketball and I believe took state championship. I have a postcard written by Dad to his mother in August 1942. He ad traveled to Campbell, Mn., to seek work. He wrote that "In 15 minutes had seven jobs offered us. We took the best one. All three of us at one place all through shocking and threshing at $5 per day!" I believe the other two mentioned were his brothers. Dad enlisted in the Marines November 13, 1942, at Kansas City. He served his country proudly and with great honor as he did in life an din the following: Eastern New Guinea October 15, 1943 - January 11, 1944; Cape Gloucester, New Britain, January 12, 1944 - March 1, 1944; Peleliu, Palau Islands September 15, 1944 - October 14, 1944; Okinawa, Ryukyu Islands, April 2, 1945 - June 21, 1945. He received the National Defense Medal, Korean Service Medal w/3*, United National Medal, Good Conduct Medal awarded twice. He was discharged March 29, 1954, with the rank of Master Sergeant. He served with the First Marine Division. He was discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves August 21, 1958. Dad worked at Armstrong Tire and Rubber in Des Monies, and attended trade school in Des Moines. He then moved his family to California. There he worked as a machinist for several years and opened his own machine shop. He carried his hard work ethic to his profession where his work was highly regarded within the industry. He retired to Deepwater. His home is on 40 acres where he could enjoy the outdoors he so loved. He was able to attend to his great love of hunting and fishing and the outdoors where he planted an orchard and attended his large garden (especially tomatoes, turnips, radishes, corn and beans). He loved those veggies, until his health restricted his activities. He was of late unable to do much, which is itself a very heavy cross to bear for such a strong determined, and proud man. Dad would love to take fishing trips to Canada and Alaska where he would share his catches of albacore and salmon with neighbors and family. He and the other gentlemen would can their catch themselves. Dad was a very proud man, staunch, forthright, honest and independent ... meticulous and a perfectionist. He was extremely intelligent and had the common sense to compliment his intelligence. He held high expectations for himself and expected the same from others. He presented a tough exterior, but to those able to see further found a friend. A true friend. His family life may have at times floundered, but there was always great respect and love throughout the deep pains and troublesome times. We seemed to understand that some men are not very good at expressing their love with words and actions, but it is nonetheless felt in the heart. I believe these past few years have been difficult for Dad, he loved his independence and rugged nature. It must be extremely difficult to have a very strong body succumb to pain and disablement, stealing away the ability to enjoy that which was truly the essence of his soul. He worked too hard, for too long, in a large city before he decided to retire to a simpler, more peaceful way of life. Only to have his health steal way the tranquility of life. Isn't it unfortunate, we don't slow down during life to truly appreciate and enjoy those things we hold so dear. Only when life itself has slowed us down, do we take time to understand what is truly of value. He adopted a stray cat, which he then lost, but not before she born him three kittens to care for. Dad and his cats, watching the world; the field, the timber, the animals, the birds feeding from his carefully tended feeders; sitting surmising the world through his sliding glass door, or just sitting out on the lawn, or watching sports, cats in his lap in his big La-Z-Boy recliner, you know, the one that fits his every body curve. Dad will be sadly missed by his good neighbors to whom he became so close to, and by his family who will forever carry him within us. We cry for his pain, and pray he finds his eternal peace, and we hope that he will smile down at us, laugh at us, cry with us, and help us as we struggle to find our sliding glass door to look through. We are blessed with many of the Inman traits passed down from generation to generation in long family line of dedicated, honest, hardworking, ordinary people that make God proud and have built this country silently, proudly. Funeral services were held under the direction of the Sickman & Dunning Funeral Home on April 8, at the Clearmont United Methodist Church with Rev. Jerry Geisert officiating. Organist Gertrude Smith accompanied Karen Koger in offering "Amazing Grace" as a special music selection.

Mr. and Mrs. W. N. INMAN, born and reared in Christian County near Nixa, were united in marriage May 1, 1908. They have two children, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Their daughter, Mrs. Ella Mae Steinert, Springfield, is a school teacher in Kickapoo School, and their son, Joe Paul Inman, Marietta, Oklahoma, is employed by Texas Oil Co. Their grandsons are Sam and Joe Steinert and granddaughter is Joe Angela Inman, and the great-grandchildren are Sammy and Susan Steinert. Mr. and Mrs. Inman live on North Main Street, Nixa.

NIXA,

Nicholas A. Inman, a blacksmith, moved from the mountains of Tennessee to the area of Nixa in 1852. He formed a partnership with Joe Weaver and opened a shop a Ozark. He moved his equipment by ox team from St. Louis at a cost of $1,300. The work of a blacksmith was in great demand in the surrounding agricultural region. While Inman fought in the Civil War and carried wagons of fruit and vegetables into Springfield to supplement his income, other families moved in nearby. The A Faught Store and the Stewart Smithy and Hotel were prospering. The Stewart buildings were at a crossroads and this site was selected for a post office. The post office required a name and a town meeting was called. They wanted a short name and when Nicholas Inman walked into the meeting, someone offered to name it after him for his many years of service to the community. Someone said "Nix" best described the site since it was "nothing but a crossroads." They added "A" from Inman's middle initial and thus came the name, "Nixa."

Today, Nixa is still a crossroads, but town leaders of the 1800s would hardly recognize it. Now, it is a crossroads between small town values and big city life, between lakes country and Ozark Mountains, between growth and stability.

City government in Nixa is keeping pace with growth by its adoption of a comprehensive plan. A new post office and a new city hall, an expanded sewage treatment facility, grants from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, a full time parks director - all point to a city with an eye on the future.

Now the crossroads that was once a convenient stop for teamsters hauling supplies from Arkansas to Springfield is one of the fastest growing cities in Missouri.

From an article in the Nixa Enterprise. (a picture was included)

Why "Nixa"? (from the Nixa, MO web site)

Nicholas A. Inmon, a blacksmith, moved to this area from the mountains of Tennessee in 1852. Inmon realized the work of a blacksmith was in great demand because of the surrounding agricultural region. Because of this demand for blacksmiths Inmon formed a partnership with Joe Weaver in Ozark. 

As the area of Nixa began to grow and local stores like the Faught Store and the Stewart Smithy started to prosper, it was decided to put in a post office. In order for the area to have a post office the town needed a name, so a town meeting was held. The people wanted a short name that could be remembered easily. During the meeting Nicholas Inmon walked in and someone proposed to name the town after him to honor his many years of great service to the area. Someone offered the name "Nix" because the site of the post office was at the crossroads of town. The "a" was from Inmon's middle initial and thus came the name, Nixa.

Visitation will also be at the church on August 23 from 6-8 p.m. Burial will be in Woodlawn Cemetery on Noland Road, Independence, MO. Memorial contributions should be made to the church you choose or Camp Galilee, PO Box 520, ElDorado Springs, MO 64744. Howard was born in Independence, MO on October 7, 1910 to Myrtle and Walker Woodruff. He graduated from William Chrisman High School in 1930, Central Methodist College at Faytte, MO in 1935, and Perkins School of Theology at SMU, Dallas, TX in 1940. As a young man he worked at Bundschus' Department Store on the Independence Square and worked his way through college as a carpenter for the Winn Construction Co. of KC, MO. At SMU he worked as a carpenter in the steam plant, under the leadership of Stanley Paterson. Because his father died when Howard was only nine years old, he learned a great deal about working with his grandfather and Mr. Paterson, lessons he often quoted to his family. Howard married Audrey Lee Wagner, from Stanley, KS, on August 22, 1933. They were a "team" in the ministry and always considered their appointment a joint service in their Christian faith. Audrey preceded him in death in 1996. Also preceding him was one son, William Walker Woodruff, in 2000. He is survived by one daughter, Carole Anne Golden, of Independence, MO; a daughter-in-law, Terry Woodruff, of Raytown, MO; one brother, William Harold Woodruff, Independence; and a brother-in-law, Rev. Charles Burner of KC, MO. Howard was so proud of his wonderful grandchildren: Kathy Moxley and husband, Gary, of Independence and their children, Sara, Jenny, Audrey and Sydney; Karl Walker Ploeger and his wife, Kristie of Overland Park, KS and their children, Emily and Alex; Kristin Myers and husband, Todd, of Independence and their children, Kendall and Rachel; Jennifer Morris and husband, Len, and children, Andrew, Amanda, Miranda, Shelbie and Jesse; Matthew Walker Woodruff and wife, Emilie of Raytown and their child, Ashlie. He also leaves multitude of nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Howard's keen wit and loving smile will be missed by so many. He was always a positive light in any situation and an inspiration to those around him. From the time he was seven years old, Howard knew he was going to be a Methodist Minister. He is one of the last of the real "circuit riders". All of the churches he served were in Missouri. Those charges were: Atherton, Glenwood Park, Independence, Florida Circuit, Vienna Circuit, Linn Creek Circuit, Ava, Cleveland Ave. in KCMO, Watson Memorial in Independence, Campbell Ave., Springfield, and retired from Countryside United Methodist Church in Raytown in 1975. While at Ava Howard also taught High School during World War II and served in the National Guard. He was proud that he received a citation from the U.S. Government for selling so many War Bonds. Howard enjoyed the fellowship and friendship of the community. He was a member of the Rotary Club, receiving the Paul Harris Award (Known as Woody to his friends). He was a member of the Independence Knife and Fork Club for many years and the Masonic Order, recently receiving his 50 year pin. The dining hall at Camp Galilee, ElDorado Springs, MO is named in Howard's honor. He was on the original committee who planned the youth camp and designed the buildings and oversaw the construction and planning of this wonderful camp. He served many years as the Jurisdictional Board of Missions secretary. He made a large Mission Candle and many people remember this tall candle made from small candles from all over the world that missionaries sent to be melted into this meaningful display. Howard also loved to work with wood. He was well known for his stage settings and displays at conferences and retreats. He made the "shields of the apostles" that are on display at the Chicago Temple. Howard had a great thirst for knowledge and enjoyed writing poetry. He and Audrey published genealogical records from Missouri history. He would microfilm the records and Audrey would compile them for publication. They visited every county in the state of Missouri to complete this treasured record. "The idea man" was what folks called Howard. When a group or meeting was being held and input was needed for new and creative ideas, Howard was asked to join and sit in on the discussion. He was very proud of this reputation His smile and laugh and caring love will be truly missed by those who knew and loved him. (Arrangements: D. W. Newcomer's Sons Noland Road Chapel 816-252-8900)
