Father*Lewis Jefferson Eads1 b. March 1, 1826, d. October 13, 1901

Crider was the attending physician, Amanda Drusilla "Manda" Duncan was the informant on his death certificate, cause of death was heart block, cholecystis & cholangites, duration 10 years.10,11,2 His obituary was published in an unknown newspaper in May, 1920.12 His cause of death was heart block.2 His obituary stated:
Benjamin Franklin Eads, 1860 — 1929
Benjamin Franklin Eads, was the youngest son of Louis J. and Jane Eads nee Simpson, he was bom in Maries County, Missouri the 31st day of January 1860 on the farm formerly known as the Louis Eads place — now owned by A.H. Waidlich. He was 69 years, 3 months and 22 days old at the time of his death on May 29, 1929, when he passed away at his residence 6 miles north of Dixon where he has lived for nearly half a century.
His entire life was spent in the limits of the county and upon the farm where he was bom and where he departed this life, save, the interval between September 1881 and June 1882 while enroute to Brown County Texas and return to Missouri. .
He embarked upon the sea of matrimony early in life having united in marriage with Miss Amanda uncan the llth of Dec. 1879, and this good woman is left to mourn his loss, and although aged and ; infirm she nursed him and no one could care for him like she all during his long illness. They were the most devoted couple! This union was blessed with 5 children; three daughters and two sons. The daughters survive him. They are named in order from eldest to younger: "Bertie" J. — Mrs. Thomas Hutchison; Minnie O. — wife of Hermann Isenberg; and Allie L., wife of Ben Creamer who made their home with Mr. Eads and wife. The two sons were called away early in life by the reaper who "mows the thistles and the flowers that grown between". They were Wm. J. 1899 and Perry B. in 1906. He left 2 sisters, Mrs. Lydia Tackett and Mrs. Melinda Briggs, of his seven sisters and two brothers
they alone survive.
Two sisters passed away while in infancy, another while quit young, his eldest sister, Mrs. Emiline Nelson in 1902; another, Mrs. Francis Hughes in 1889, his eldest brother W.S. (Boler) Eads in 1915 and Moses W. in 1923. His father having preceded him to the bourne from whence no traveler ever retums in Oct. 1902, and his mother in April 1882 while returning from Texas to Missouri. She was born while her parents were moving from Kentucky to Missouri.
Among those who keenly feel the loss of Mr. Eads we mention Everett E. Baker the orphan boy whom he partly reared, and who loved him as a son, he served with honor and distinction in the late war and has since made a civil engineer and he no doubt can thank Mr. Eads in large part for his success for the good honest rearing and noble example he had in his foster father.
Mr. Eads’ funeral was conducted by Gilbert Undertake of Dixon, the sermon preached by Rev. Polk Tull. Mr. Eads was interred on the farm where he first saw the light of day in the Louis Eads Cemetery, 5 miles southwest of Vienna. His pall bearers were all old friends and neighbors who loved him as a father or brother. He was not a member of any lodge; hence no mercenary motives prompted their act. No pains were spared to put him away nicely; he was buried in a beautiful gray casket, and covered with an indestructible copper vault — there to await the resurrection of the JUST.
Mr. Eads was the type of man it is a genuine pleasure to know and meet, never a more loveable disposition than his to be seen "here below". He had a good sense of humor too, but it was never used to excess or in a way to offend the most cynical; he always looked at the bright side of life, and when apparently for a moment endeavoring to drop into pessimistic strain it was truly a case of the cloud having a silver lining and his humor was bound to carry him along to optimist anyhow.
He was a good neighbor; an affectionate and devoted husband and father, a friend whom we rarely meet in life; the poor and needy he never tumed away; his home has ever been as the good old Ozark people term it: "The latchstring on the outside."
Of intensely religious nature he joined the church many years ago and lived up to its tenets until the end, and while a member of the M.E. South Church, he was no bigot and this is attested to by the many friends of other denominations who assisted so nobly in his funeral rites.
He was not learned in letters, yet was a success in business, a good farmer. In the philosophy of attending his own business none were his superior. He was industrious and frugal; a great man for his home. He passed but few nights away from home during the whole course of his life. His youngest daughter tells the writer that during her whole life she had been away from home three nights, and that her father was at home at those times!
Alas! How much better this world would be if all people were as good as Ben Eads was! We would not need any judges or lawyers, any law courts or jail, neither detectives nor police. This earth would indeed be a paradise. As the poet said: "He ne’er had changed nor wished to change his place". He knew above all to appreciate contentment and a great philosopher said that all riches and honor must fade in significance to contentment. He was one of the shining models of the past age, a true image of former simplicity, which is becoming more and more rare among the Americans. His last illness was long and terrible yet he bore his affliction with wonderful self control. How patient and brave he was. He complied with all the directions of his physician, he spoke cheerful and comforting words to his friends and family and even when his physical powers waned his mind was still normal. He remarked a short time before he passed away: "I have it all fixed — down here and in heaven".
He will be sorely missed by all that knew him, many times will the sounds of his footsteps be looked for in vain by his family; oft will his friends in vivid imagination see his kindly face and pleasant smile; but his wife and children can console themselves that he has gained more than they have lost; be that however great and if they faithfully emulate his example, they will be reunited with him upon the golden shores of the promised land!
Farewell husband, father, neighbor, good friend and model citizen! Farewell! The heat and tempest of summer, and the cold and storm of winter will beat around your sepulcher, but you will heed them not. Ages and eons will pass which to you will be but a twinkling of an eye, generations of men and whole nations shall rise and fall, but we feel that on the day of judgment, when the saints "in Christ shall 1ise", you will be satisfied!
"Then haste thee, Time — ‘tis kindness all That speeds thy winged feet so fast: The pleasures stay not till they pall, And all thy pains are quickly past.
Thou fliest and bear’st away our woes.» And as they shadowy train depart, The memory of sorrow grows A lighter burden on the heart." .
(signed) M. E. (This wonderful flowery obituary was written in 1929 on stationary from the Maries County National Farm Loan Ass’n, Vienna, Missouri.
