  3. Gone to Last Reward

    J. L. Duckett, one of Lockwood's Most Honored Citizens, died Monday night.

    James Lilbore Duckett was born in Warren County, Kentucky, March 11«sup»th«/sup» 1842. He came with his parents to Barton County, Missouri in 1855. In 1873 he was united in marriage to Mary Jane McClelland. To this union six children were born, three of whom are living. They are Tom Duckett, of Monett, Mrs. Maude Haubein and Miss Lizzie Duckett, of this city. With his devoted wife the children were present at his bedside during his sickness and death. Funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Wednesday afternoon, Dr. R. K. Malden delivering the funeral sermon. His remarks were taken from three verses of the 1«sup»st«/sup» chapter of the second letter to Peter. The songs were "In the Sweet Bye and Bye," "Gathering Home," "Come Ye Disconsolate," and "Asleep in Jesus," favorite of the deceased and the family. Those who served as pall bearers were: F. R. Pearson, George Dodd, H. A. Neiman, Thomas McDermid, Fred Frye, and S. J. Hiatt. The burial was in the Lockwood cemetery.

    The deceased has resided in Dade County for many years and was one of the most noble hearted Christian gentleman we have ever known. He was a man of generous impulses and never forgot the hospitable way of the pioneer. He was one of the men in Lockwood who worked faithfully that the Baptist Church might be erected and greatly assisted in every cause for good. He had filled the various relations of life, as son, husband, father, and friend and filled them well. Who can do more?

    But he is gone! Another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of our old settlers and a women, in the sunset of life and a lonely home are left to attest how sadly they will miss him. It must be so; these tender human ties cannot be severed without a pang. Yet in such a death there is really no cause for grief. His life work was done and well done. He has passed to his reward. How much this community owes him, and such as he, it is impossible to estimate. He lived nobly and died peacefully at the advanced age of 70 years, 9 months and 27 days. The stern Reaper found him "as a shock of corn, fully ripe for the harvest."

    Not for him be our tears! Rather let us crown his grave with garland; few of us will live as long or as well, and fewer yet will the angel of death greet with such a loving touch.
