From the March 25, 1854 Jefferson City Inquirer


KILLED - Jonathan P. Martin, of Moniteau County, died a few days since from the effect of a blow received from a deck hand on the steamer Timpour No. 2. As we learn, the facts are about these: The Timpar had stopped to take on some coal from the landing of Mr. Martin, who became dissatisfied with the manner in which some of the hands filled the measure, and some words passed between him and one engaged in filling a box, when the deck hand raised his shovel and struck Mr. Martin on the head. Mr. M. did not think he was seriously hurt, and had his wound dressed without experiencing any great pain, and went to bed apparently as well as could be expected, but awoke in the morning in great pain, and in a few hours was a corpse. Mr. Martin formerly resided in this county, and was twice elected Sheriff, and afterwards elected to the House of Representatives.


From the Harris Cemetery on the Cooper County, MOGenWeb site:


The inscription on Paul Whitley's stone states: "Paul was the founder of the Whitley School Fund, Patron of Education and Friend of the Poor." Melton's "History of Cooper County, Missouri, page 285 - Paul Whitley willed his property to his wife for her life, and, at her death, it was to go to the public schools of an area now comprising Moniteau Township, Cooper County. The widow, with her nephew, Lewis Reed, moved to Texas in 1851. Returning in 1855, she died of cholera on a steamboat and was buried on a bank of the Mississippi River near Vicksburg.


Before her death, she entrusted to slave woman she owned, $2,000 in gold. The slave woman, with a Negro man, later known as Alex Crum because he was bought by Anderson Crum of Moniteau County and several slave children, returned to Pisgah, Cooper County. There, the Negro woman turned over to David Jones, executor of the Whitley estate, the gold she had carried in a belt around her waist, and surrendered herself and the children to be sold. Proceeds from the slave sale were applied to the fund, in all amounting to $13,000.


In 1910, the Cooper County court, appropriated $1,000 to remove Paul Whitley's body to Harris Cemetery, south of Prairie Home and to erect an impressive monument. The court also set aside $300, interest from which is used for permanent upkeep of the grave."
