Note 2: Benjamin Franklin Baber, born April 25, 1838, Ray County, Missouri

    The death of Benj Frank Baber, which occurred last Friday evening, July 24th, at seven o'clock, at his home two and one-half miles southwest of Richmond, removed another one of Ray county's old and well known citizens.  Mr. Baber's death resulted from a complication of ailments from which he had been a sufferer for some time.  Several weeks ago he became seriously ill, but his condition, apparently mended rapidly until three weeks ago, when a relapse came and it was then apparent that the end was not far off.

     Mr. Baber was a native of Ray county and counted among her oldest native born citizens.  He was the eldest of a large family of children, his parents being Thomas and Clarissa Baber, natives of Clark county, Kentucky, who came to Missouri in 1830 and entered 640 acres of land upon which our subject was born and reared and a part of which he owned at his death.  His birth occurred on April 25th, 1838, and he was, therefore, seventy years of age when he died.  He was married November 21st, 1867, to Miss Margaret R. Magill, and they reared a family of ten children, all of whom, with the widow, survive him, vis: Edwin, Harrie C., and Forest, of Elk City, Okla; Lora M., Myrtle, wife of Harve Baber (sic); Clara, wife of J. W. Fitch; William, Minnie, wife of Peyton Carter; John F., all of Ray county, and Sarah, wife of Dr. Y. D. Craven, of Excelsior Springs.

     Mr. Baber served in the Confederate army and participated in many of the important engagements of the Civil War.  He was a brave and true soldier and in his private life was an honorable, useful citizen, whose death will be keenly felt, not only by his family and friends, but the community in which he had lived his entire life of three score and ten years.

     The funeral was held from the home Saturday afternoon at three o'clock, conducted by Elder James E. Dunn, and burial occurred in the City Cemetery.  The following named persons, old friends and neighbors of the deceased, acted as pall bearers:  E. L. Steva, Emmet Rimmer, John Happy, Geo. M. White, Al C. Harrison and John C. Leforgee .

The Richmond Conservator, Thursday, Jul 30, 1908, Richmond, MO


Note 3:  Obit of Harry Carl Baber, August 05, 1874 - January 18, 1941

     Funeral services were for Harry C. Baber, 66-year-old pioneer resident of Foss and Elk City, who died Sunday at Porterville, Calif will be held here at 3 o'clock Thursday at the First Christian Church, Rev Joe S. Strather, pastor of the Methodist church will officiate.  Burial will be in the Fairlawn Cemetery.

     The body will arrive here at noon Thursday from California.

     Mr. Baber was born August 5, 1874 at Richmond, Mo., and came to Foss with his family in 1897.  He moved to Elk City in 1905 and made his home here until five years ago when he went to California to live.

     He was a member of the Moorewood Masonic Lodge and a member of the First Christian church here.

     He is survived by six children including Mrs R. E. (unreadable) of Hammon, Buford (unreadable) of Dexter, Mo., Mrs Jerry Shelbey of Hinton, Okla, H. C. Baber of Porterville, Calif, Earl E. Baber of Elk City, and Miss Callie Baber, daughter of Mrs. Pearl Baber, of Arnett.

     Eight brothers and sisters also survive.  They are Mrs. Y. D. Craven, Excelsior Springs, Mo., Forrest L. Baber, Oklahoma City, and William T. Baber, John F. Baber, Mrs Myrtle Barber, Mrs. J. W. (unreadable), Mrs. Peyton Carter and Miss Lora Baber, all of Richmond, MO.

                (unreadable) and Shea Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.


Note 4:  Obit of Fanny Melvina Baldwin, February 28, 1876 - March 02, 1919

     The community was grieved Sunday, March 2nd when the death angel called to the Great Beyond, Mrs. Fannie Melvina Baber, wife of Harry C. Baber, about an hour after the birth and death of a little babe.

     Funeral services were held at the First Christian church on Tuesday afternoon, where despite the very inclement weather, a large crowd gathered to pay the last tribute of respect to this dear friend and neighbor.

     The choir sang "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere."  Her pastor, Rev. L. Meek, read for scripture lesson the 5th chapter of 2nd Corinthians.  Rev Coffee led in a very earnest prayer.  Mrs. R. L. Reid sweetly sang, "Jesus is the Light," after which Rev. Meek made an address, taking as his text 1 Chronicles 29-15. "For we are strangers before thee and sojourners as were all our fathers; our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding."  He gave many comforting words and told how he had become acquainted with the family when he first came here nearly three years ago, and how they were loved by him.  As their pastor, he became more acquainted and knew the true Christian lives of the home and had ever found the deceased faithful.  His deep grief was manifest to all as he paid a beautiful tribute to Mrs. Baber and he closed his remarks by saying that only God's promises and God's grace alone could help at such times.

     As the choir sang "Shall We Meet Beyond the River," the friends passed by the casket which was covered with beautiful flowers, to look for the last time at the loved one.  The little baby lay nestling in the arms of the mother.  Men and women were in tears, which was a silent testimony of their love for her and the sympathy which words could not express for the bereaved ones.

     The body was laid to rest in the beautiful Fairlawn cemetery.

     Fannie Melvina Baber, daughter of the late T. J. Baldwin, was born in Ray County, Missouri, February 28th 1876.  She was married to H. C. Baber December 30th 1896.  They came to Oklahoma in 1897, taking a homestead near Foss.  About 1906 they moved a few miles north of Elk City, and last spring moved to a large ranch near Moorewood, Okla.  Mrs. Baber was staying in Elk City most of the time this winter to give her children the advantages of our school.

     She was converted in 1896 and at the time of her death was a member of the Christian Union church.  She was always connected with the various activities of church work, and was one who was always planning pleasant surprises for her pastor and friends in arranging to celebrate birthday anniversaries.

     Mrs. Baber was a woman ever cheerful, but quiet, unassuming, faithful and unselfish in all her ways.  She was industrious, frugal and home-loving  Whether caring for the home, visiting the sick, receiving the stranger or calling upon a neighbor, her thoughts were ever for the comfort of those about her.

     She knew Oklahoma in the early day and quietly bore her share of the hardship and toil incident to those days.  She will be missed greatly, for she was a faithful wife, a loving mother, a kindly neighbor and a devoted member of the church.

     Before going into that dreamless sleep she requested to see the children, bidding each good-bye.

     The husband and five children are left to mourn the passing away of a devoted wife and mother.  Irene, the eldest child being fourteen years of age, Earl twelve; Buford ten; Harry C., Jr. five; and Mary Helen, two years old.

     She also leaves a brother, Walter Baldwin, who lives at Weatherford; half brothers and sister, Paul and Melvin Baldwin, and Miss Grace Baldwin, and her loved step-mother, Mrs. Emma Baldwin.

     Attended Mrs. Baber's Funeral

     Those in attendance from a distance were Mrs. J. W. Fitch, Mrs. H. G. Barber and Miss Lora Baber, of Richmond, MO.  Miss Grace Baldwin of Christian Hospital, Kansas City, Mo., Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Baber, Bartlesville, Okla., Walter Baldwin and family of Weatherford, Mr. and Mrs. Riggs, of Hydro, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Baldwin, of Hammon, Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Heston, of Moorewood, and Mrs. (remainder unreadable.)
