The little town of Laclede was first known as Eagle Postoffice. The school
district was formed 14 May 1870 with John C. Soupene the first teacher. Jennie
Hawson was the teacher in 1875earning about $25.00 per month.
About the time our Dixon, Timmons and Domeny families arrived t
postoffice was changed to Laclede with A.B. Davis appointed postmaster. Mr.
Davis also owned one of the early general stores. L.C. Prunty built a gristmill near
the Laclede bridge. . Taylor had a blacksmith shop. D. Hennekson owned a
restaurant and grocery store. Thomas Prunty owned a general store. Laclede had
a resident doctor at one time, also a drug store. .
Early settlers were John M. Jordon, Jerome Pitney, L.C. Rightmire and I.W.
Zimmerman. John W. Tanner, a Methodist Protestant minister, came to Laclede
from Ohio 1870. Mr. Tanner was the county surveyor at one time.
Two church organizations, the Methodist Protestant and Methodist Episcopal,
held forth in the upper room of the school house.
The Laclede Baptist Church began 12 April 1906. This church has survived
through the years.

Editor's Note: We think this is the complete list of the children of William Dixon and his wife,
Sarah Johns Dixon. However, in the Ross County, Ohio, marriages we found a John Dixon, iden-
tified as William Dixon's son, who applied for a marriage license with Margaret Williams on 28
April 1821that was not returned. Later, a John Dixon, also identified as a son of William Dixon,
married an Isabella McMurray on 10February 1835,in Ross County. Also, one researcher said that
William and Sarah had a daughter named Mary.

Dixon. His first marriage was a Jane Brown. They had six children. Second marriage was on
February 16, 1843 to Rebecca Cox in Ross County, Ohio. Rebecca was born on October 21, 1818 in

Harrison township, Vinton county, Ohio at the age of 50, six months after the birth of his daughter
Emza Ann. His widow, Rebecca married Alexander McGraw on August 28, 1857. She died June 14,
1888 and is buried at laClede, Ks. The seven children of Joseph and Rebecca were:

this county; she has a host of
friends in this locality and in
Topeka, where she has lived for
several years. It is unnecessary to
comment on the groom as he is
known to most people in this locali-
ty and is a friend to all. Mr.
Hauldren has fitted up a neat home
in this place and expects to com-
plete the furnishing on their return,
about February 1. Louisville people
are to be congratulated on having
this worthy young couple locate in
our midst as they are the class of
citizens who add to the place and
will be a help to every improve-
ment that will tend to the up build-
ing of our community. As we are
closely connected in business af-
fairs we refrain from doing justice
to this young couple in this article,
but suffice it to say, from what we
know personally no better people
are on our list of friends. One half of
the LYRE wishes them health, hap-
piness and prosperity and will
pledge ourselves to do our best to
make life pleasant for them in the
future and will endeavor to make
as much noise at the charivari as
anyone in the crowd.

One of the most largely attended


funerals ever held in the city was
that of Elmer W. Domeny at the
Methodist Church this afternoon.
Practically the whole community in
which he has lived for many years
was present at the service. and Pon-
ca City people were present in large
numbers. filling the large church to
standing room. Elmer was very
popular in the little town of Ford.
where he lived and in all the sur-
rounding country. and was well
known and highly respected in this
city. The pastor of the church
delivered and unusually fine and
impressive sermon. and the choir
music was excellent. The young
man whose useful life seems to
have ended all to soon. leaves a
devoted wife. father. mother. four
sisters and three brothers. one of
the brothers being a soldier in our
army in France.
