    This Indenture made this Twentyfifth day of September in the year of our
    Lord one thousand eight hundred and twelve between William Rowe and
    Agness his wife of the County of Fayette and state of Ohio of the one part
    and Mathew Sims of the county of Louisa & state of Virginia of the other
    part Witnesseth that the said Rowe and wife, for and in consideration
    of the sum of Seven hundred dollars have granted bargained and sold, and by these presents doth grant bargain and sell to the said Mathew Sims a tract of land lying in the county of Louisa and state of Virginia on the waters of Beaverdam a branch of Mychump creek, containing Two hundred and twenty two acres... Total assumption based on the information in this deed. I have no marriage records or anything else that might prove this marriage relationship. However, the Rowes and the Roberts did live in proximity, this land appears to resemble land owned by Morris or Jeremiah Roberts. The tract was originally sold to William Rowe by Jeremiah Roberts and William Rowe, Sr., and implies the marriage of known daughter, Agness, to William Rowe. From the way the will is written, one can assume that Agness is living, but if married, he has failed to mention her married name.

  543. A History of Northeast Missouri, p 1522. John O Roberts acquired his education chiefly in the school of experience, which has given valuable training to so many of our biggest men, and he was "graduated from the mill of hard knocks." His father wished his sons to begin life under more favorable circumstances than he himself had done, and John O. began his career in 1847 as a clerk for H. D. Kent & Brother in Clarksville. His father succeeded that firm in the business in the following year, and from this store John O. entered the river service as a packet clerk in 1851 for the St. Louis & Keokuk Packet Company. He remained with this business until the death of his father, when he returned to the store and was thereafter identified with the merchandise busiess until 1862, when he engaged in milling as manager of the Imperial Milling Company.
  544. A History of Northeast Missouri, p 1522. His father succeeded that firm in the business in the following year, and from this store John O. entered the river service as a packet clerk in 1851 for the St. Louis & Keokuk Packet Company. He remained with this business until the death of his father, when he returned to the store and was thereafter identified with the merchandise busiess until 1862, when he engaged in milling as manager of the Imperial Milling Company.
  545. Old River Days. "In '54 and '55," said Mr. Roberts, "I worked for the St. Louis & Keokuk Packet Company, a line owning three boats, which weren't worth over $75,000. That company cleaned up as much as $150,000 clear profit in one season. And, of course, a season wasn't an entire year, either. It would open about March first and end in December or, in a mild winter, January.".
  546. A History of Northeast Missouri, p 1523. In 1857 the Clarksville, Paynesville & Prairieville Road Company was formed with Newton McDonald as president and John O. Roberts as secretary. The company was subsequently displaced by the Clarksville Road Company by a special act of the legislature of the state, and the construction of the road began at Clarksville. The estimated cost of the road was placed at $32,000, and that amount of money was provided for by the county court, the town of Clarksville and its citizens, and the citizens of the communities through which the road was to pass. The first five miles of road out of Clarksville was built at a cost of $5,000 per mile, and when the appropriation for the road was exhausted the road was not yet completed. The board directors met the deficiency by borrowing $10,000 to finish the work, and Mr. Roberts was one of the several men who guaranteed the payment of the note.
    This demonstration of practical public spirit enabled the company to connect the towns above named by gravel roads of the highest order, and the toll was placed at the limit of the law while funds were being raised to repay the loan in interest. With the debt disposed of, the board reduced the toll to a point sufficient to maintain the road, and they managed the affairs of the concern until the county, under a provision of law, took over the road and continued its management, with but little change of policy.
  547. A History of Northeast Missouri, p 1522. His father succeeded that firm in the business in the following year, and from this store John O. entered the river service as a packet clerk in 1851 for the St. Louis & Keokuk Packet Company. He remained with this business until the death of his father, when he returned to the store and was thereafter identified with the merchandise business until 1862, when he engaged in milling as manager of the Imperial Milling Company. This historic old mill was built in 1856 by Clifford, Roberts & Company, and in 1859 was destroyed by fire. Two years later it was rebuilt, and in the year following Mr. Roberts assumed charge of its operations. It was incorporated in 1880 and became the Imperial Milling Company.
  548. Centennial History of Missouri, Vol IV, p 822. The imperial mill is one of the largest and perhaps one of the oldest flouring mills in northeastern Missouri, for it was erected in 1856 and has been operated continuously to the present time. Its first management was under control of the E B Carroll & Co. In 1870 it was incorporated under the laws of Missouri and capitalized at thirty thousand dollars. John. O Roberts was made president and conducted its business with brilliant success until 1886, after which he discontinued his connection with it for a period of twelve years and then resumed its management, directing the affairs of the enterprise for another decade. The mill was then sold to the Gillum interests and Mr. Roberts became vice president, which position he held until his death in 1915. J. Robert Carroll is secretary and Claud L. Gillum the treasurer.
  549. A History of Northeast Missouri, p 1523. In 1871 he was one of three, including B P Clifford, Mr. Roberts, and Henry S. Carroll, who were the prime movers in the establishment of the first bank in Clarksville, the Clifford Banking Company, and he has continued a leading factor in its affairs since its organization, being president of the institution now. His son, John O., Jr. is vice-president and Calvin L. Carroll, his son-in-law, is the cashier.
  550. A History of Northeast Missouri, p 1523. Mr. Roberts is the owner of a considerable quantity of valuable farm land, which he began acquiring in the early seventies, and he is now known to be one of the largest farmers and land owners in the county.

    Jefferson City, Dec 3. - A 60-year-old prohibition provision written into the deeds to the original townsite of Elsberry, Mo., in an attempt to forever stop the sale of intoxicating liquor in the business section of the community was ruled invalid today by the Missouri Supreme court, division No. 2. In 1879, Robert T. Elsberry, founder of the town; William McIntosh, John O. Roberts and Henry S. Carroll conveyed the land for the future little town. Records in the case disclose lengthy hearings in the lower court, which ruled against the claims of the Elsberry descendants. It was shown that during the lifetime of Robert Elsberry, and after the restrictions in the deeds were effective, "whisky was old in great abundance" in the town upon the restricted premises. Judge Westhues held that because of the widespread violation of the restrictions, known to Mr. Elsberry during his lifetime, the provisions of the deeds had been waived by him, and the descendants now could not recover.

I found that he was listed as a member of Clarksville Lodge #17, when it was chartered on October 8, 1830. I am sorry it did not give his degree dates but on records as old as this one is, no one had dates reported. So he left Clarksville Lodge #17 and joined with Fellowship Lodge #345. So he died as a Mason in good standing."

    Richard wasn't born in 1830 - so I'm assuming that this was a typo and have shifted it to 1860 - will leave it there until I can correct it with an accurate date.

  597. Unidentified Newspaper, probably the Joplin Daily Herald. THE HAND OF DEATH; R. M. Roberts Falls Dead on the Street a Victim of Apoplexy of the Heart:
    Richard M. Roberts, ex-sheriff of Jasper county and probably the best known man in the county, left his home on the corner of Virginia avenue and Second street shortly before 7 o'clock this morning apparently in his usual state of health, but in less than fifteen minutes later he was carried back into the house unconscious and breathing his last.
    He had taken a bundle of his clothes down to the laundry on Second street, between Main and Joplin and then started back to Main street to go down to Marquis' for his breakfast. He had crossed Second street and was just in the act of stepping up on the cub stone at the corner of Main and Second, west side, when he fell back onto Second street. Some men on the street who saw him fall rushed to his assistance, but he was unconscious and apparently dying. Dr. Wolf, whose office is across the street, was summoned and at the suggestion of Col. Pierce, who happened to be at the scene, the men present picked up the prostrate man and carried him to his home and laid him tenderly on the bed and the doctor proceeded to examine him, but found without difficulty that he was beyond human aid and that he had fall a victim to apoplexy of the heart. He continued to breathe about ten minutes after the fatal stroke, but did not regain consciousness.
    The news of the sudden death as it spread along Main street caused everybody to stop and question, and looks of distress were plainly visible on the features of all, for everybody knew :Dick" Roberts and held him in high esteem.
    Mr. Roberts was about fifty six years old and had been a resident of Joplin since the fall of 1872 removing to this place from Hannibal, Mo. [interleaved - St. Louis] where he had married a most estimable young lady, Miss Julia Porter, daughter of Judge G. Porter. Shortly after his arrival here he and his brother-in-law, E. D. Porter, now president of the Rex Mining Co., engaged in the grocery business at the corner of Main and First streets. In 1880 he was elected sheriff of Jasper county, and he then retired from the mechatile(sic) business and gave his entire attention to his official duties which he did so creditably that he was re-elected two years later. After serving four years a sheriff he retired from office and engaged in business as a merchandise broker, which he continued in up to the time of his death.
    Just previous to his election to the office of sheriff he served two years as mayor of Joplin, having been nominated at a mass convention which was presided over by W. M. Carter and at the election he received a very large vote.
    In the meantime the saddest blow of his life befell him. His wife, whom he almost idolized, was taken from him by death. This occurred about twelve years ago. She left him three bright and promising children who have been a great comfort to him since, but he has seen them only occasionally, as after their mother's death realizing that it would be better for them, he sent the children to live with their grand parents at Hanibal(sic) and they have made that their home ever since. His children were Nellie, who is now Mrs. Dr. Young and lives at Stockton, Cal.; Miss Dot, aged sixteen, and master Porter, aged thirteen.
    Mr. Roberts has always, since the death of his wife, cherished her memory with the greatest affection, although he never spoke of her to his friends. During all these years he has kept the house in which she and he lived so happily, as nearly as possible as it was when she left it. He and the house and the furniture have grown old together and now he has gone to join her in the better world, and his body will be taken to Hanibal(sic) and laid to rest by the side of her whom he loved so dearly.
    Coroner Squire decided that it was not necessary to hold an inquest but very likely an autopsy will be held this evening and the body will be taken on the Memphis or Missouri Pacific night train to Kansas City and from there to Hanibal(sic).
    Mr. E. D. Porter, Mr. Roberts' brother-in-law and life long friend, was down on the Cowskin river fishing when the death occurred, but a telegram was sent him by special messenger from Noel this morning and he is expected to arrive on the evening Splitlog train.
    Deceased has a brother, John Roberts, living at Clarksville, Mo., also one in St. Louis, and a sister, Mrs. Downing, in Kansas City. The have all been notified and will probably be present at the funeral.
    Mr. Roberts was in comfortable circustances(sic) financially, owning considerable land in the county, some of which is lately proving to be valuable mining land. There is not a man in the county of Jasper who had so extensive a personal acquaintance as he, no matter what part of the county he was in nearly every man he met greeted him pleasantly and called him by name, and everybody had a good word to say of him.
    A.F. and A.M.: Fellowship Lodge No. 345, AF and AM, will meet its asylum at 7:30 to-night for the purpose of escorting the remains of Brother R. M> Roberts to the train. Members of Joplin Lodge No. 335 is cordially invited to meet with us. P.L. Crossman WM

    Resolutions.: The Old Settler associations of Jasper county at a recent meeting adopted appropriate resolutions on the death of R M Roberts who died suddenly at Joplin and was laid to rest in Riverside cemetery. The resolutions are as follows:
    Resolved, 1st. That in the death of R. M. Roberts our city has lost a most estimable and worthy citizen, society one of it brightest lights, the poor a warm friend who gladly extended to them a helping hand and words of sympathy in their need and distress.
    2. That this organization deeply deplores the sudden death of our late associate and friend and that to his children and relatives we extend our deepest sympathy in this, their sad hour of affliction.
    3. That his noble deeds of love his words of kindness spoken his virtues and true nobleness of manhood will ever remain green and fresh in our memories; and while he sleeps the sleep that knows no wakening may we cherish the fond hope that we may meet again and draw consolation to our souls in the thought that the world is better for his having lived.

  807. Hannibal Courier-Post. Editorial at the time of his death:
    Frank T Hodgdon
    The measure of a man's stature in a community is measured generally by the contributions of service which he has made in its progress and well being. When this service is multiplied by a tenure of more than a half century of active interest, its measure grows.
    That is the sort of citizen Frank T Hodgdon was in a period running a span of well beyond fifty years in Hannibal.
    A resident since 1887 when he came here at the age of 14 years, he held a record outstanding both in length of time and magnitude of service, in his work as a citizen. Both in the business with which he was identified for so long and in a tremendous number of civic undertakings he was an untiring worker and leader.
    Mr. Hodgdon's business was banking. Entering this calling in the Farmers and Merchants bank when a young man just out of college, he worked through various stages to become cashier for many years and then president of the institution.
    Nor was his interest in the banking business merely confined to his job. He believed in the advantages of association of those engaged in a business and the helpfulness of "talking shop" with other bankers. More than a third of a century ago, he was recognized by the state's banking fraternity for his leadership and elected to office in the Missouri Bankers Association. In 1918 he became its president. Recognition of his interest was not only in his state. He served a term on the executive committee of the American Bankers association.
    It was not merely in his business that Mr. Hodgdon devoted his talent and his energy. During his long career one has only to list the civic and community undertakings of Hannibal to name the activities in which he had a prominent part.
    Chamber of Commerce movements, fraternal organizations work of the schools, the churches, the YMCA, Boy Scouts - one could count them by the score - were activities in which he made an important contribution of effort.
    Perhaps the crowning event of his "extrabusiness" activity was in the later years of his life, when as chairman of the Missouri State Cancer Hospital commission, appointed by the then governor, Lloyd C Stark, Mr. Hodgdon was in charge of the planning and building of the outstanding state-sponsored hospital for cancer treatment and research in the country. Ellis Fischell hospital today is testimonial of his energy and determination to render an outstanding service when called upon to do a job.

He had spent nearly all his entire business career with the bank, taking over as president in March, 1949. In May 1949, he resigned as cashier but remained as president and a director of the bank.
    After receiving his elementary and academic education in the Hannibal public schools and graduating from Hannibal High School in the spring of 1892, Mr. Hodgdon enrolled as a student in Dartmouth College, Hanover, N.H., in the fall following his graduation. During his summer vacations he worked in the Bank of Hannibal, predecessor to the Hannibal National Bank, thus acquainting himself with the business he was to follow most of his life, although at that time he had made no definite plans for the future.
    Finishing college in 1894, Mr. Hodgdon decided upon banking as a career and on September 28, 1895, entered the employ of the Farmers and Merchants Bank of Hannibal, the name of which was enlarged to the Farmers and Merchants Bank and Trust Company in 1927. His first position was that of individual bookkeeper.
    Prior to this he was bookkeeper for a short while for the Hannibal Oil Company, a subsidiary of the National Refining Company of Cleveland, O., and while attending high school he worked part time in the office of the Duffy-Trowbridge stove foundry and later in the office of the A. J. Stillwell Meat Company...
    Mr. Hodgdon was married to Annie Porter Roberts on June 2, 1898, in Trinity Episcopal Church by the Rev. Edward Porter Little. Surrounded by member of their family, their golden wedding anniversary was celebrated in 1948.
