Retired Pioneer Merchant Dies.
John J. Swillum's Business Activities Here Extend Over Period of 51 Years.
John J. Swillum, 79 years old, veteran business man of this city, died at his home here Friday, November 15, 1929, following a prolonged illness. Four years ago, shortly after his retirement from active business, he was stricken with acute heart disease and asthma followed by dropsy from which he never recovered. In the winter of 1928 his condition became so critical that little hope was held out for his recovery. He rallied from this, however, and was able to be about again. More recently there was another attack which brought about his death. California has been the scene of Mr. Swillum's business activities for fifty-one years with the exception of a brief period at Little Rock, Ark. Throughout his earlier life and period of middle-age, he was one of the city's most active business men. In 1887 he built a row of business buildings on Smith street between Oak and High streets and became the proprietor of two retail establishments, giving his special attention to dry goods, notions and general merchandise lines. In this he was assisted by his son, Elmer, and other clerks. During these years he was a booster for California and a most progressive citizen. A Moniteau county souvenir publication of 1893 speaks of him as "a successful merchant" and "a very active worker." On the night of April 8, 1910, a great misfortune from which e never fully recovered overtook Mr. Swillum when his residence and business buildings were swept away by fire. Since then his business interests have been smaller and varied, including some dealing in land prior to his final retirement. July 6, 1876, Mr. Swillum married Miss Anna Sophia Finke, daughter of H. C. Finke who was a prominent pioneer merchant of California. To this union five children were born, the following four of who survive: Elmer and Chas. Swellum and Mrs. Maud Gamm of Kansas City and Mrs. Mabelle Frank of Jefferson City. One child, Lilly Anna, died in infancy. The first wife died August 10, 1896. He afterward married Mrs. Emma Bryant who survives. Two children were born to this union. They are Mrs. Ruth Boyd of Ulysses, Kans., and Mrs. Lula Miller of Louisana, Mo. Other survivors are three brothers, Lee Swillum of California and Frank and Mike Swillum of Jefferson City; a sister, Mrs.. Kate Slicker of Jefferson City; a half-brother, Stephen H. Fischer of California; a step sister, Mrs. Mary Eckerle, of California; two step-children, Bert Bryant of this city and his sister, Ethel. The late Joseph Swillum of this city was a brother. Two other brothers died in the East years ago before the family moved to Missouri. Mrs. Thos. Callahan of this city who died recently was a sister as was the late Mrs. Ustina Hoffman of Little Rock. Ark. Mr. Swillum was born in Columbus, Ohio, September 16, 1850, and came west with his parents, Andrew and Josephine Swillum. His mother, after the death of his father in 1868, married Stephen H. Fischer, Sr., in 1869. A general regret is felt in the passing of Mr. Swillum and his bereaved family has the sympathy of the community. Funeral services were held at the Catholic church at 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. Fr. Lyons officiating.

Maud Emma Swillum prepared this essay in 1895 at California, Moniteau County, Missouri, called: Thanksgiving Day
"The regular time for Thanksgiving is the last Thursday in November. This day has been celebrated by the American people ever since the year of 1863. It was originated by the Pilgrims, and afterwards appointed by the President of the United States. He made the law that all business should be closed in the forenoon.
Services are held at the churches in order to thank God for His Goodness. And with our Thanksgiving let us pray to the Lord to incline the hearts of our people Unto Him that He will continue to use His mercy and protecting care, guiding us in the path of national prosperity and happiness. And let us also on this day remember the poor and needy, and by deeds of charity let us show the sincerity of our gratitude.
After service follows the Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and all sorts of good things. The reason we have this day is because the Pilgrims when they had their harvests gathered, set this day aside as a day of feasting and thankfulness.
This being the rule of all the American people, they chose a turkey, since it was a native bird of America. It was the main dish of the Thanksgiving dinner. This is a nice dish for everybody, and anyone can prove it by the way it disappears on a certain Thursday in November.
And I am sure the turkey does not know he is so good and so many eat him on that day, or he does not seem to be very down hearted or does not act so, by the way he gobbles and struts about. Perhaps he is proud of being chosen above all other birds for this great feast."
Benjamin Franklin said it ought to have been the national emblem instead of the bald eagle, as the turkey could be trusted to fly at anybody wearing a red coat.
Although the turkey is not as handsome as he thinks he is, on Thanksgiving day he becomes charming to look upon, delightful to smell, and delicious to the taste.8

After the war he bought up all the timber land he could obtain, and employed 150 men to cut off the timber and deliver to the railroad company.
