Hillsboro, Jefferson county, Missouri
WEDNESDAY, 16 FEBRUARY 1887
Mr. Augustus MERRILL and Mrs. Mary Jane MOLSRAME? were married by Rev. J.C.
McMULLIN at the residence of M.D. CANTRELL, in Big River township, on the 11th
A Mrs. BAIRETT and her four children were brought to the county farm from De
Soto, yesterday. Her husband had deserted her, and she was destitute of means
and supposed to be insane.
LICENSED TO MARRY - August MERRILL and Mary Jane BOISRAME, Nicholas PAUL and
Gertrude ENGLE, W.O. WARFORD and Jennie B. BAILEY, James T. PARKER and Mary M.
CONSTANCE, Albert C. MARLIN and Laura MARRIS - the last couple being colored.
James TAYLOR, of De Soto, died on the 8th inst., aged 74. He has been known
in this county for the past 40 years as a Methodist exhorter, and we don't
suppose he ever harmed a human being. Robert ROBERTSON, another of the old
landmarks of that section, died Sunday, the 18th inst. at 10:30 a.m., at the
residence of his brother George, in De Soto. He had been something of a cripple for
years, but was that morning apparently as well as usual. He sitting in a room
by himself, when his sister-in-law heard him fall, and ran in, finding him
gasping for breath, and in a minute he was dead. His death was doubtless the
result of heart disease. He was buried Monday in the family burying ground;
near Mr. TATUM's.
DE SOOT - Gust. HAMEL has received a patent on his folding chair.
Mr. BRECKENRIDGE, south of town, has been dangerously sick for some time and
is still in rather bad condition.
Wesley HARMONY, who has been very sick for several months past, is thought to
be slightly improved.
Henry LEDERER and bride returned to De Soto from their tour through the East
last Saturday morning. They visited The White House and were greeted by the
President and Mrs. CLEVELAND.
MAXVILLE - Febr'y 11th, 1887 - On the 10th inst. a grand surprise was held at
the residence of Dr. L.W. SAPPINGTON, in honor of the Doctor, attended by
about twenty-five or thirty of the best citizens of Maxville and vicinity. After
the citizens were welcomed, it was more of a surprise to them to find that
Mrs. SAPPINGTON, in less than no time, furnished such a splendid supper,
including oyster soup, to which everybody did justice. After supper a few kegs of
beer were dispatched, and some fine music was furnished by parties present.
Card playing was also indulged in until about two o'clock in the morning, there
being six tables filled with players. It was a splendid affair and every one
present enjoyed it hugely.
IN MEMORIAM - Inscribed to Mrs. Fanny FARLEY on the death of her little son,
Resting, sweetly resting.
On the heavenly shore:
Saved from sin and sorrow,
One blest thought to cheer you
In your grief, so sore:
Gone to live with Jesus,
He is waiting for you
On that blissful shore,
Whenthere'll be no parting
