Coffeyville Daily Journal, Coffeyville, Kansas. 7 June 1918. Page 4.

Uncle Moses Parker was county Pioneer. Sixty years he served as a minister of the Baptist church. With the death of "Uncle Moses" Parker of Clearwater recently, there passed away one of the oldest and best known pioneers of Sedgwick County. He was 91 years old and for 60 years was a Baptist minister. Most of those 60 years were spent in the vicinity of Clearwater, as he came to Kansas in 1876 and settled close to that place soon after.
He had a prominent part in the development of Southern Kansas. He was born in Ireland and was an Odd Fellow. Altho in later years a minister, he was one of the "49ers". He took part in the strenuous rush to California for gold in the early days before Kansas was known to many persons. He was then but about 20 years old, but went thru with many hardships before returning and settling down. He is survived by six children.

18 Barbara Blair Gish passed away peacefully on the morning of February 12, 2020 in Commerce, TX with family and friends by her side. She was 89 years old.

Born September 16, 1930 in Hutchinson, Kansas to William and Mabel Blair, Barbara and her brother Bill grew up with strong role models for tenacity, and she credited her parents with viewing life as a grand opportunity, fostering a lifelong passion to share one’s abundance and talents. She was affected by WWII, the notion of sacrifice, and consequently drawn to history and politics as an arena for compromise and civility. In college she earned a B.S. in Sociology and began her career in public service immediately after. In 1954, she met her husband Larry Gish on a blind date, falling so easily in love they would marry only one year later and remain happily married until his passing in 1991. Together they moved first to Marceline, Missouri, then Arkansas City, Kansas, and finally Stillwater, Oklahoma, where she spent most of her life from 1966 to 2013. They had four children but tragically lost two in early childhood, experiences that deeply impacted her life. Throughout, she faced these and other challenges with her special brand of courage, determination, and faith.

Family was her greatest joy, but she was also closely involved with her community, making lifelong friends in the process. Her heartfelt desire to help anyone in need of a champion and her unmistakable bubbly laugh endeared her instantly to those she met, and helped cinch her many admirable achievements. She worked tirelessly with multiple philanthropic organizations including the Delta Delta Delta sorority (where she played several roles including district president), OSU Friends of Music, Stillwater Arts and Humanities Council, OSU Panhellenic, and PEO. She established and enriched child advocacy centers in Oklahoma, assisted in St. Andrew’s thrift shop, and lobbied for abused children at both state and local levels. In honor of her volunteerism, the governor of Oklahoma declared September 18th, 2010 to be Barbara Gish Day, a statewide holiday. Barbara loved to travel, garden, spend time with her children and grandchildren, to write thoughtful handcrafted letters to dear friends and family, and always, always help others however she could.

In death she joins her parents William and Mabel, daughter Nancy, son Alan, husband Larry, brother Bill, and son-in-law Richard Lampe. She is survived by her daughter Susan Lampe, son David Gish, daughter-in-law Catherine, grandchildren Blair, Emily, Lauren, and Evan, sister-in-law Jody Blair, and beloved cousins, nieces and nephews. Memorial services will be held at 10am at the First United Methodist Church chapel in Commerce, Texas on February 21st and in Stillwater, Oklahoma at 11am at Saint Andrews Episcopal Church on February 22nd.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be sent to the Barbara Blair Gish Endowed Scholarship at the Oklahoma State University Foundation (400 Monroe, Stillwater, OK 74074.

JAMES CASKEY.—Page County is not behind other counties in the State of Iowa in its indebtedness to the beautiful " Emerald Isle," which has given up so many of her sons and daughters to the settlement of the New World. Prominent among this number is James Caskey, who was born in county Londonderry, Ireland, July 17, 1802. He is a son of John and Ann (Dun) Caskey, and during his youth assisted his father in his flax-mill, and worked at farming. He remained in his native land until 1828, when he set sail for America; after landing he remained in Philadelphia for a few months, and then went to Mobile, Alabama, afterward locating on a farm in Greene County, Alabama.
Mr. Caskey was married January 29 1829, to Catherine Mawhinney, a daughter of Alexander and Jane (Dunn) Mawhinney, natives of county Londonderry, Ireland, who emigrated to America in 1820. Catherine is the second child of a family of eight; she was born in county Londonderry, Ireland, October 29, 1806. After they were married they lived on the farm in Greene County, where they continued to reside until 1852, when they removed to Cook County, Illinois; when living in this county Mr. Caskey shipped the first corn to Chicago that was transported on the Illinois Central Railroad. In October, 1856, the family landed in Page County, Iowa, where they have since made their home. In making the journey they first went to St. Louis by rail, thence by boat to St. Joseph, Missouri, and the remainder of the way in wagons. Mr. Caskey entered his farm, which consisted of 160 acres, from the Government; it was wild land without any improvements; he erected a building 16x24 feet, and when finally they were housed in this comfortable dwelling a happier or more contented family could not have been found in Page County. It was not a life of luxury or ease, which they led for many years to come, but one of industry and continued effort; the trials and privations of pioneer life were met unflinchingly, and every exertion was made to add to the prosperity of the family and community. The growth and development of the county has been largely forwarded by Mr. Caskey.
In those days neighbors were few, but the social qualities were cultivated none the less. In the lack of a house of worship our esteemed subject opened his own dwelling, where the settlers for miles around met for religious service. The first communion was administered by the Rev. Joseph McCracken of the Reformed Presbyterian Church; he was the first regular pastor employed by the society. Mr. Caskey and his family have ever been active workers in the cause of their Master, and have thus contributed to the advancement of the community.
Ten children have been born to Mr. Caskey and wife: John died while in the service of his country, being a member of the Filth Iowa Cavalry, Company C. He passed away at Paducah, Kentucky, his death being caused by disease contracted at Ft. Donelson; Jane, the widow of William Brown, deceased, and her two daughters are still living on their farm in Harlan Township; Alexander died in July, 1889; William died in Illinois; James M. is a farmer, residing in Harlan Township; [page 671] Mary Ann is at home; Sampson died while in the service at Florence, South Carolina, January 13, 1865, having served three years; he was a member of the Fifth Iowa Cavalry, and was a prisoner in the Confederate army at the time of his death; Robert G. resides on a farm in Harlan Township; Joseph F. lives on the old homestead, and Isaac B., who larms in Harlan Township.
Joseph F. and Mary Ann are living with their aged parents, caring for them as only a son and daughter can do; they cheerfully per form this filial duty, and have the esteem and respect of the whole neighborhood.
While residing in the South Mr. Caskey was opposed to slave-holding, and always advocated its abolition.

McKeown, Alexander (I304)
24 Biographical record of the counties of Harrison and Carroll, Ohio. Chicago, J. H. Beers & Co., 1891, pp495-496.
William McKeown, a well known and progressive farmer of Freeport Township, Harrison County, was born here August 28, 1842. His father, Alexander McKeown, was born in Ireland, and in 1824 came to America, and located in Belmont County, Ohio, where he remained until 1826, when he entered the farm on which his son William now resides, in Harrison County. Before leaving Ireland, Alexander was married to Rose Ann Glasgow, whose parents came to Guernsey County, Ohio. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Alexander McKeown were Henry, John, James (deceased), Alexander, Adam (deceased), Arthur, William, Mary Jane, Lavina and Rosa A. The father, who was a weaver by trade, in politics a Whig, died in 1851, his wife surviving him until April 1886. He was a man of kindly disposition and of great strength of character, and was respected by all.
William McKeown was reared on the home place, and farming has always been his vocation, while the common schools were the advantages he enjoyed in the matter of educational facilities. In 1862 he enlisted in the Eighty-seventh O.V. I., Company H, and was went to Baltimore, as well as to Harper's Ferry. While at the latter place the regiment was captured, but the members thereof were paroled, and Mr. McKeown then returned home. On May 14, 1867, he chose as his life's partner Nancy J. Tidrick, daughter of Robert Tidrick of Guernsey County, Ohio. The young couple immediately settled on the home place, where they remained until 1885, when they went to Missouri, remaining there, however, but three years, when they returned to the home place, where they have since resided. In politics Mr. McKeown is a Republican, heartily supporting his ticket, and has served in various offices of honor, among which may be mentioned that of trustee for several terms. He is the father of two children: Mary and James G., the latter now deceased, and of whom the following obituary appeared in a local paper:
Died at his home near Freeport, Ohio, September 2, 1890, James G. McKeown, aged twenty years. Interred at Londonderry September 2, funeral services conducted by Rev. J. W. Taylor. The deceased was the only son of William and Nancy McKeown. Three years of his life were spent with his parents and sister near Sublett, Mo. The remainder of his life was passed at his home near this place. He was absent from home when he was taken sick, but returned home at once and consulted a physician. Continuing to grown worse, two other physicians were summoned but the skill of all was baffled by his disease which his physicians termed typho-malaria fever. He united with the United Presbyterian Church at Londonderry in his fifteenth year. Young and full of life's youthful vigor and joys, but not a stranger to deep thought or meditation upon serious things which he evidenced upon his death bed but resigning himself to God, and assuring his parents that God doeth all things for the best. His sufferings were severe which he bore with great patience. Being early made acquainted with the Scriptures, they afforded him much consolation in time of trial. His mind was clear and his faith unshaken to the last. The family, community and friends have experience an inexpressible loss. He had a large circle of friends, and was loved and respected by all who knew him. He has gone to his rest, and given to youth and all a warning.
The family worship at the United Presbyterian Church at Londonderry, of which the parents have been members for many years. Mr. McKeown engages in general farming and also deals quite extensively in stock. He is now the only representative of this family, which have been so long and favorably known in this locality.

Youngster Saves Pennies To Buy Book of Lectures For His Mother. "Here's thirty-five pennies I saved, I want one of Dr. Osborne's book of lectures for a present for my mother." This came from a small boy whose head hardly reached to the top of The Hawk-Eye counter when he came in yesterday afternoon. Standing on tiptoes he emptied a small pocketbook and out poured 35 pennies. The boy, himself, a pleasant-faced youngster, was a manly little fellow with an intelligent friendly appearance, the kind of a youngster a parent could be proud of. Naturally a boy who would have 35 pennies to buy a book for his mother could not go unnoticed. It developed that he is Ralph Marohn who lives with his mother, Mrs. Alice E. Marohn at 802 Emmett street. Little Ralph is just 9 years old. Although Just a boy he has been a wonderful help In his home, especially as his mother has been incapacitated much during the last year thru sickness. He has taken care of her as tenderly as would a trained nurse. He had the benefit of a wonderful mother, too, and he is learning to accept responsibility early. A long time ago he recognized that with money scarce, birthday presents for him would have to be earned, so he began saving his money to buy "Hobert's Bible Stories" as his own birthday-his birthday coming October 14. Last Sunday Ralph heard his mother say she enjoyed the essays by Dr. Naboth Osborne that appear in The Hawk-Eye each Sunday, and she wished she could get the book of essays that has been printed. "Can't I take some of my pennies and get the book for you," asked Ralph. 'Td like to get it for you mother." "But you are saving your pennies for your own book for your birthday," the mother replied. "Yes, I know," the little fellow responded. "It will take me a little longer I expect to get my book, but I would like to get this for you If you will let me." Who could have resisted that offer which came direct from a boy's heart thru the love for his mother. Who wouldn't give everything In the world to have such a boy who would sacrifice his own birthday present to buy a book for his ailing mother.
