Sullivan County Deaths: 1890-1894

These death records are not complete for the county, but do constitute the death records as they appeared in the Sullivan Standard and the Milan Republican.

Often the dates given were vague, as “last week”, “a few days ago”, “sometime back”, “recently”, etc. If the exact date was not given, but a remark as “last Tuesday”, “Sunday back”, and similar expressions used, the date of the newspaper and a perpetual calendar were used to try to ascertain the exact date. The wording concerning these deaths is as it appears in the news item.

The dates shown in the Information section are usually the dates it was published. If information, such as died Monday, is given, I have used a calendar from that year to find the probable date.

From the Milan, Missouri, Standard ~ INSTANT DEATH
    Last Friday afternoon December 30, 1892 about 3:30 o'clock, Mr. John B. SINCLAIR was overtaken and run over by the north bound passenger train one half mile north of Boynton on the C.B.& K.C. R.R. Mr. Sinclair had been to Boynton to pay his taxes. He walked over, and it seems that the unfortunate man was walking on the track on his way home and had come within twenty feet of where the bypath he always traveled intersected the railroad, when he was overtaken. The train men say he turned to the left, and had set one foot off the track when the engine struck him. It is supposed that he miscalculated the distance or speed of the train until it was too late to escape. This is a sad stroke to the family, and a loss to the community as well, that will be long felt. Mr. Sinclalir was about 73 years of age and has lived in Sullivan county ever since 1857 and had become so established as a true man in the hearts of the people, that he will be missed and mourned by many. He was an honest upright man, of the highest type, and all who knew him respected him. No man in Jackson township was more highly esteemed. The funeral services conducted by Rev. A. S. Doak Sunday at the family residence and the remains were followed to the graveyard by a large and sorrowing concourse of people.

    John B. SINCLAIR was born in Allegheny county, Penn., November 8, 1819, and was married to Miss Arena BAKER in Monroe couty, Ohio. Eight children blessed their union, seven of whom are living. He had three brothers and three sister, all are dead now except two sisters, who reside in Keosauqua, Iowa. One of these, Mrs. Sloan and her daughter were present at the funeral. His children all reside here and were present, except one son, Thomas, who is in the Black Hills. Mr. Sinclair went to Boynton, Friday, December 30 1892, and started home about 3 o'clock walking. He was up the R.R. track one half mile or more and was within thirty yards of where he would have left the track when he was overtaken by the north bound passenger train and instantly killed. Being a little hard of hearing it is supposed he did not hear the train until it was too near for him to get out of the way. His death was so sudden and sad that the family are almost paralyzed with grief. He was a good citizen and an obliging neighbor. A tender and affectioate husband, and a devoted father. He was by trade a cabinet maker, and was unexcelled. As a farmer he ranked with the very best. His faults were few. May we, who mourn his death, imitate his virtues, avoid his faults, and be warned by his sudden death to be always ready.

I have ancestors from Sullivan County that I plan to add to this site. I've always meant to do it.

What about you? Do you have a web site with ancestors from Sullivan County? There is no specific format "demanded" for a submission. I've always regretted I didn't do this a LONG time ago. Maybe if I had, some of my Sullivan County brickwalls might not be brickwalls any more.

Please .
