"James A Worsham, mayor of Maroa,
will speak at Second Presbyterian church Sunday evening on "Men and
Religion" under the auspices of the Men's Bible class of which J O Engleman is
teacher. Mr Worsham has had an unusual opportunity to study men from two
angles. For ten years he was connected with a large coal mine and worked his
way up to general manager. For five and a half years he has been general
manager of the Maroa manufacturing company. In all his experience he has never
had a strike and has kept the closest touch with the men employed. His
experience in coal mine was also an experiment in the influence of
Christianity on men and on the community.... Mr. Worsham is convinced that
religion pays in every way and that industrial problems cannot be solved apart

James Frank is a son of James Worsham & Nancy Jane Triplett according to
John Helenthal. James Frank Worsham was in par. 220.127.116.11.2.2.2A.3A.1 on page
387 as a s/o Thomas George Worsham & Nancy Margaret Ashbaugh. We believe
he is s/o James H. & Nancy Jane Triplett. He appears to be the James F.
age 5 in the 1870 Census with James H. & Nancy Jane and the James F.
mentioned in the History of Nancy Jane Triplett above. He is age 16 &
living with his mother, Nancy J. in the 1880 Calumet, Pike Co., MO Census.
In the 1910 Census, Amos L. Worsham is living with James Frank Worsham, a
cousin. Amos Worsham is s/o John Luke who is s/o Richard Worsham was living
with Nancy Jane in the 1900 Pike Co., MO Census and is listed as her nephew.
Amos Worsham is listed as a cousin to James Frank Worsham, therefore, it is
reasonable that James Frank is the s/o Nancy Jane.
Dennis and Bev Stobie, 2004,
found in the Ellis Library at the University of Missouri in Columbia, The Clarksville
Banner, Apr 14, 1905:
"While Mrs. Frank Worsham was away from home last Sunday the men folks wanting to surprise her attempted to cook dinner. The surprise was complete. The house and contents almost entirely destroyed. Loss about $1200 or $1500 dollars, insurance $800. The dinner was well done.

1861-1865, he is listed as John L. Washam & John L. Worsham. John enlisted in the
Union Army in the Missouri 49th Regiment, Missouri Infantry, Company D as a Private.
There were 2 Civil War CDV's posted on Ebay in
2007. The one labeled J. L. Worsham is John Luke Worsham. The woman in the
second picture, labeled S. Worsham, may be John's sister, Sarah Elizabeth Worsham.
They were advertised as:
"... a husband and wife but
are a bit more unusual than most. You can see the soldier sitting down with a bit of a
flag in the picture as well as a sleeve from a dress under the flag. The CDV of his wife
shows her holding a flag and the same dress sleeve is on her dress. When you hold the 2
together just right you can see that these two were together when their photo's were
taken. The photographer probably took their photo together then made copies of their
photos separate. The back of the woman's CDV says 'S. Worsham - Clarksville, Mo' and the
back of the soldier's CDV says 'J. L. Worsham Co. H 49th Mo Inft. Clarksville, Mo' Here
are J. L. Worsham's stats: John L. Worsham Residence was not listed; Enlisted as a
Private (date unknown). He also had service in: "H" Co. MO 49th Infantry Sources used by
