Martha E. (Emaline) Wood House was born in Washington county, Mo., August 6, 1837, and died February 17, 1918, at the age of 80 years, 4 months and 11 days. She came with her parents to Texas county in 1845; was married to John House June 8, 1856, and to this union 10 children were born, two having preceded her. She and her husband moved on Hamilton Creek August 6, 1856, the day she was 18 years old; there she lived until God called her home. She left to mourn: husband; Mrs. E. M. Crawford, Lundy, Mo.; J. H. House, Houston, Mo.; J. R. House, Independence, Mo.; T. F. House, Cabool, Mo.; Mrs. E. C. White, Nampa, Idaho; Mrs. E. Mercer, Cabool, Mo.; Mrs. T. K. Coats, Clara, Mo.; G. H.

Funeral services were conducted at Union Baptist church by Rev. Johnnie Harral at 11 o'clock. Then she was laid to rest in the presence of a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends. This ends the life of a loving wife and mother but her works will follow. Thou art gone, our precious mother; Nevermore wilt thou return; Thou will sleep a peaceful slumber 'Till the Resurrection morn.

Death Calls Pioneer Texas County Citizen--Was Perhaps
County's Oldest Man--Had Lived Here Nearly Eighty Years

Not having data of his well-spent life, only brief mention was made in The Herald last week of the death of John House, Senior, known to hundreds of Texas county people as "Uncle Johnnie" House, who passed away Sunday morning, March 29,
at 1:30 o'clock.

John House, Sr., was born in Washington county, Missouri, October 10, 1831; died at the home of his son, G. H. House, on Hamilton Creek, near Cabool, Texas county, Missouri, March 29, 1925; age 93 years, 5 months and 19 days. Mr. House was a real pioneer citizen of Texas county, for he came to this county with his parents at the age of 15, just a year after Texas county was organized in 1845, and until his death remained among us as an honest, upright, useful citizen.

On June 6, 1856, he was married to Martha E. Wood, and a happy union of nearly 62 years was broken by the death of his beloved companion February 17, 1918. To this union were born ten children, two being dead. The living are: John R. House,
James H. House, Thomas F. House, Hansard House, Mrs. E. M. Crawford and Mrs. Franklin Howell, all of the Hamilton Creek neighborhood, near Cabool, Mrs T. K. Coats, of near Houston, and Mrs. Ed White, of Idaho. His children are among our county's most useful and respected citizens.

In August, 1856, Mr. House and his bride moved to a farm 6 miles north of Cabool, where they lived peacefully and happily until the death of Mrs. House in 1918. Since then Mr. House has made his home with his son, Hansard. The old home farm is
occupied by his daughter, Mrs. Crawford, and husband, Judge E. M. Crawford.

Many pleasant memories surround the old home of "Uncle Johnnie" and "Aunt Martha" House. Here was the scene of many neighborly visits, family gatherings and social events; here the weary traveler was invited to "unhitch and stay all night;" here the
neighbor came for the favor he was sure of receiving; here the needy could safely come for help; here was an ideal Texas county home of hospitality and cheer.
About the year 1860 "Uncle Johnnie" united with the Union Baptist church, and when the church at Hamilton Creek was organized he transferred his membership there. He was in all things a true christian. To him religion meant right living, doing good unto all people and day by day walking with the Master.

During the Civil war he was a soldier of the Lost Cause, serving as Commissary Sergeant in Company E, Burbridge's Regiment, Fourth Missouri Cavalry, Confederate army.

A few years ago Mr. House was awarded the premium at the Old Settlers Reunion at Houston as the oldest man present.

For several years past annual gatherings of relatives and friends have been held in honor of Mr. House's birthday, which has always been a joyous occasion. Being in remarkably good health and strength for one of his age, Uncle Johnnie enjoyed these gatherings and entered into the spirit of good cheer and enjoyment with all the enthusiasm of those much younger.

Funeral services were conducted at Union Baptist church Monday, March 29, by Rev. John Harral. His four sons acted as pallbearers and the remains of this splendid old citizen were tenderly laid to rest by the side of his faithful companion, while the
spirits of these two good people were re-united in the home eternal where there shall be no more separation.

The Texas county pioneers pass swiftly away. Not many are left. Such men as Uncle Johnnie House have done wonders in developing the Ozark section. And blazing the way for the progressive citizenship of today. The present generation has never and can never realize the toils and sacrifices, the trials and discouragements of these early settlers who have seen our county grow from a sparsely settled wilderness, their lives endangered by Indians and wild beasts, to a happy, prosperous and progressive community. They laid the foundation upon which generations yet to come will build. Great credit is due these pioneers who suffered that we might be happy. Sorrow filled the hearts of many people when the news came that this fine old gentleman had passed away. He had been a friend to all; he was a truly devoted father, a good neighbor and a God-serving, honest, upright man, honored and respected by all. Hundreds of friends mingle their tears with
those of the sorrowing children and their hearts go out in deep sympathy. But there is comfort that the soul of Uncle Johnnie House is shouting praises in glory and that he has left to his children the rich heritage of a life that was spent in daily service for
God and his fellow man.

Such men never die; "their works do follow them" and people yet unborn will be blessed by the good deeds of the life of Uncle Johnnie House.
