William H. Stubblefield
William H. Stubblefield, a substantial farmer of Scott County, Mo., was born in JohnsonCounty, Ill., March 9, 1840. He is a son of Beverly and Isabella (Henson) Stubblefield, natives of Tennessee and Virginia, respectively. The paternal grandparents, Beverly Stubblefield and wife, were natives of Virginia, who immigrated to Tennessee, and from thence to Kentucky, where they died. Beverly Stubblefield, the father of our subject, emigrated from Kentucky to Illinois, but remained only a few years and returned to Kentucky. In 1854 he brought his family to Scott County, Mo., making the trip with wagons and ox-teams, and made a settlement near Price's Landing. His death occurred in 1855. His widow is now living in Kentucky. They had nine children, six of whom are living: John, Ben, Clay, Mary (Mrs. Richard Stone), Hulda (Mrs. Thomas Giles), and William H. Being but fifteen years of age when his father died, William H. remained with his mother two years longer, when he began work for himself as a farm laborer. When he was twenty years of age, he rented a farm, which he cultivated until he was married, in 1862, to Mary Matthews, when he removed to a farm belonging to the latter near Commerce, Mo. In March 1868, he removed his family to Richland Township, Scott County. After renting land for three years, he purchased the farm on which he now resides. It consists of 520 acres of land, mostly under cultivation, with good improvements. To him and wife have been born two children: William and John B. Mr. Stubblefield is a member of the I.O.O.F. and of the A.O.U.W. Politically, he is a Democrat.

In the late 1940's or early 1950's Barney and Arbie Atherton had stopped for the night at a motel, in I believe Arizona. I'm not sure if they were on their way to Memphis or returning to California, but they had stopped to rest for the night with their dog who always traveled with them. They all died that night due to a faulty heater in the motel room.
Addie and W.M. Kiser had a son B.L. Kiser. Marshall and B.L. were raised together and were very close; they did every thing together. B.L. had a sister named Thelma who married George Martin and moved to Memphis, TN were Marshall was in constant touch. Marshall loved his Aunt Addie,Aunt Ella and Aunt Nora very much and would always visit them when he was home from the service.
Later when Marshall visited his Grandchildren he would always tell them about his Aunt Addie, Aunt Nora,Aunt Ella and all his cousins.
Notes for JAMES E. (JIMMY SPALDING) STUBBLEFIELD:
Jimmie was raised as a Spalding even though his father was clearly Al Stubblefield. I don't know what happened to bring all that about. Jimmie enlisted in WWII(1-9-1943) and served as Corporal in the 253RD Armed Field Artillery Battalion until he was killed in battle in France on Sept. 27, 1944. He is buried next to his mother in Roselawn Cemetery. in Bardwell under the name of James E. Spalding, 1917-1944.
In The autobiography of Edith's Clark Phillips:
My parents were born in Kentucky.My mother,Sally Sizemore,was born in the small town of Bardwell, Carlisle county, August 5 1894. My father, John Wesley Clark was born in Mayfield,Graves County, May2, 1890
The James Jackson Clark Family moved from Kentucky to Heber Springs Arkansas in 1906. Their family consisted of four sons, Will, John,Jim,and Juell,and two daughters, Cora and Zealie
Close to my birth time my Mother went back to bardwell to her parents's home, for me to be born,I never knew my Mother's family.I have some old pictures with names on back of them, She had two brothers, Woodroe, William and Four sisters, Stella, Ruby,Maggie,and Linda.My grandma Sizemore was called Addie, and Grandpa Sizemore"s initials were "SMS'
My Mother took me back to Arkansas when I was about two months old and she was never able to take me back. She died on July 13, 1916 at the age of 21 years, 11 months and 8 days. After Mother's death in the summer of 1916, my Father took me to see my Sizemore grandparents, I never saw any of my Mother's family again.
