  • Notes 
    • ALEXANDER GLADSTONE.

      "Among those leading and representative farmers of Worth County whose labors have contributed to the material advancement and welfare of the community, one deserving of mention in a work of this nature is Alexander Gladstone, whose property of 200 acres is located in Middlefork Township. His life has been a busy and useful one and furnishes an example of honorable dealing, steadfast purpose, fidelity to principle and stalwart public spirit, and the high esteem accorded him by his fellow citizens has been honestly gained.

      Mr. Gladstone came to Gentry County, Missouri, March 6, 1869, with his father, Walter Gladstone, the trip being made from Ontario, Canada, by rail to St. Joseph, and from that city to Gentry. The father, in making a previous trip to the county, had purchased 400 acres of land, partly in timber and partly prairie, and this is now a well-cultivated farm owned by Walter Gladstone, a younger brother of Alexander. Walter Gladstone, the father, came from Roxburghshire, Scotland, in 1840, the ocean trip consuming seven weeks, and landed in Canada, with his parents, William C. and Elizabeth (Davidson) Gladstone, both of whom died in Canada. Walter Gladstone was a carpenter by trade, and was also the proprietor of a general store at Ayr, Ontario,. for a period of fifteen years. Walter Gladstone resided on the Gentry County farm during the remaining years of his life, and there passed away in October, 1882. He married Jane Easton, who was born in Scotland, daughter of Alexander Easton, and came to Canada during the same year as her future husband, whom she married in 1847. They became the parents of the following children: William R., Eliza D., Alexander, Jennie, George E., Annie M., Walter and Mary, all of whom became identified with agriculture in Northwest Missouri. The father of these children became a charter member of the Presbyterian Church, when it was founded in Gentry County in 1872, and continued in that faith during all of his life, serving for some years as elder. His political belief was that of the republican party, and while he was never an office-seeker, he stalwartly supported the candidates and policies of his party.

      Alexander Gladstone was born March 25, 1854, at Ayr, Ontario, Canada, and there received his early education in the public schools. He was fifteen years of age when he accompanied the family to Missouri, and here his education was completed in the country schools, following which he took up farming with his father. On April 24, 1878, he was married, and at that time erected a residence, barn and other buildings on a tract of seventy-five acres, belonging to his father, land which he soon broke to corn. This property has since been sold to two younger brothers, Mr. Gladstone purchasing 200 acres in Middlefork Township, section 33, township 64. Mr. Gladstone is accounted one of the most practical and progressive agriculturists of his township. He uses the latest improved machinery in the development of his farm, studies the best methods for producing the various cereals adapted to this climate, practices rotation of crops, and, above all, brings to his work that unflagging industry which seldom fails of accomplishment. It is this factor that has brought him a desired success and has gained him a place among the well-to-do farmers of his community. He has a set of good buildings, kept in the best of repair, and his live stock is fat and contented, while the general air of prosperity which hovers over the property gives eloquent evidence as to the good management and thrift of the owner.

      Mr. Gladstone married Miss Nancy Jane Maxwell, daughter of Sam and Mary (Houser) Maxwell, of Gentry County, both of whom are now deceased. The Maxwells came originally from Ohio, moved later to Iowa, then to Kansas, and in 1877 came to G-entry County. There were eight children in the Maxwell family, namely: Robert F., Martha Ann, Helen, George, Nancy Jane, Mary, Samuel, and William J. Mrs. Gladstone was educated in the public schools and for several years was a teacher at Great Bend, Kansas, where she received the second teacher's certificate issued at that place.

      Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone are members of the Presbyterian Church, in which she has served as superintendent of the Sunday school for a numbar of years and is also president of the Missionary Society, and has been active in religious work. Mr. Gladstone has been identified with the republican party, and although he has not sought political preference has been foremost in advancing the interests of his community, particularly in the line of educational work and good roads. He has served for several years as a member of the school board. To Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone there have been born the following children, all of whom have been given good educational advantages and fitted for the positions in life they have been called upon to fill: Mary, who married E. J. Lyle, a farmer of Nodaway County, Missouri, and has four children, Gladys, Merle, Ross and Hardie; Walter, a farmer whose property is located close to the family homestead, married Charlotte Marshall, and has two children, Opal and Ralph; Martha, who married C. E. Temple, professor of botany in the University of Idaho, and has four children, Margaret, Martha Ross, Helen and Robert; Samuel, of Salem, South Dakota, where he is engaged as a barber, has three children, Fern, Loreu and Bella; Bessie, who is the wife of J. W. Barker, proprietor of a livery and sales stable at Grant City, Missouri; Jane, who is attending the normal school at Marysville; and Helen, who resides at home with her parents."
