Friday, 16 Jan 1925, Vol 38 No. 38, pg. 1, col 6--HENRY CUBBAGE DIED
TUESDAY--Dies From Pneumonia, Following Companion in Less Than Two
Weeks.--Henry B. Cubbage, fourth son of William and Cilicia Clements-Cubbage,
born in Owen county, Kentucky, January 26, 1855, and died at his home near
Missouri, January 13, 1925, aged 69 years, 11 months and 17 days, his death
13 days after the passing away of his wife.
The funeral was held at the Yates Baptist church at 1:30 p.m., January 15, by
Stonecifer, and interment made at Roanoke cemetery.
At the age of 22 Mr. Cubbage came to Randolph county, Mo., to grow up with
West and here met, wooed and married Miss Clara Dell Higdon on January 17,
Nine children came to bless this happy home, seven of whom survive him, three

He was a genuine type of that rugged character, that plain, honest manliness
American citizenship so admired by all people. It may well be said of him,
"A just man
has gone," and in the language of the poet we would add:
"Spirit of man pass on; they homeward wing is free;
Earth will not claim thee for her son, she has no chain for thee!
Toil might not bow thee down, nor sorrow check thy race,
Nor pleasure win thy birthright crown; go to thine own blest place."
To those who mourn the loss of this good man we commend them to the tender,
watchful care of our loving Heavenly, Father, who is too wise to make a
mistake and too
good to do wrong. He has prepared a home for all His children and one by one
them and they are being gathered unto Himself.

typesetter misplaced a line from a different part of the obituary. The line

else in the
obituary, so I cannot reconstruct who the rest of the family members were.

I am looking for information on my greatgrandparents. Their names are Craven Kelley (Known as Kelley or C.K.) Simpson and Sallie Ann SMITH Simpson. From her marriage record it gives her from Owen Co., KY and her father was all so. His name might be William or that could be her brother. On her marriage record it gives a R. H. Smith as the person who signed or gave the information and permission for her to marry since she was only 17. Craven was married once before. They were married in Carroll Co., KY. Does any one have any information that could get me closer to Sallie and her parents? I am stuck on her and can not go any further. All help is greatful. Debby
I found the title of a book that is something like this, History of Kentucky Baptists 17?? to 18?? with 800 Biographies.
Does anyone have the book or know the exact title? I am looking for the biography of a James McCoy who performed marriages in Owen Co. in the 1830s.
