EIGHTIETH BIRTHDAY OF MRS. FLORENCE SHACKELFORD
Friday, October 24, was a very happy occasion for Mrs. Florence Shackelford, of Americus, when a number of friends and relatives gave her a surprise birthday party and card shower on her eightieth birthday.
Over forty persons assembled at the Shackelford home Friday evening, bringing well-filled baskets. Mrs. Shackelford was called to the door, and, as the guests sang "Happy Birthday," her surprised expression was proof that her daughter, Mrs. Nana Lee Thompson, had kept the secret well.
After the beautiful supper was spread, W. E. Davis returned thanks in a most impressive manner. A beautifully decorated birthday cake had been baked by Mrs. Blanche Bush, of New Florence, and, after the candles were lighted, the following tribute prepared by Mrs. Bush, but expressing the sentiment of all present, was read by Mrs. Shackelford's niece, Miss Dorothy Powell:

"I give this greeting to your heart with sentiment sincere.
To wish you all the wonders of a happy birthday, dear.
A better birthday in you life than you ever had --
With twice as much of all the things that ever make you glad.
I hope your dearest dreams will be fulfilled in every way --
And greeting cards and presents will provide a perfect day.
And when your cake is lighted and the merrymakers shout,
I hope you make your biggest wish and blow the candles out.
Good luck to you for every part of all the coming year.
The best of health, a world of wealth and may God bless you, Dear!"

At the conclusion of the supper bountiful helpings of ice cream, which had been prepared and brought by Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Miller and sons, was served.
Beautiful roses were presented to Mrs. Shackelford by Mrs. Paul Stiegman, and a lovely corsage of small mums, snapdragons and beautiful rosebuds was presented by Mrs. Durward Baker.
During the supper hour further enjoyment was added to Mrs. Shackelford's pleasure when her grandson, Harold S. Thompson, called from the state of Washington to wish her "Happy Birthday."
Mrs. Shackelford, who is a descendant of an old pioneer family, daughter of the late Thomas J. and Mary Davault Powell, went to Americus from New Florence August 17, 1888, as a bride and has spent the entire fifty-nine years there since that time. The love and respect she has inspired in the community was evidenced by the many cards and remembrances which she received. Over one hundred eleven cards and many lovely gifts were sent by her many friends.
After an evening of happy reminiscences and good fellowship, the guests departed wishing Mrs. Shackelford many more happy birthdays. Mrs. Shackelford assured her friends it was the nicest birthday she ever had.
Those present besides Mrs. Shackelford and daughter, Mrs. Thompson, were: Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Davis, Miss Melba Davis, Mr. and Mrs. T. P. Rodgers, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Miller, Billie Cottle Miller, Mr. and Mrs. Vernon E. Miller, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence F. Saak and son, Richard of Montgomery City; Mrs. Ruth Craig, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Stiegman, Mrs. Blanche Bush, Mrs. W. H. Knox, Mr. and Mrs. D. F. Knox, Miss Dorothy Powell, Maurice Powell, of New Florence; Mr. and Mrs. Earl Noel, Mr. and Mrs. John Quick, Wade Quick, Mr. and Mrs. Tony Hinrichs and daughter, June, of Rhineland; Mr. and Mrs. Barton Baker, Mr. and Mrs. Durward Baker, children Donald Lee, Judith Kay and Barbara Ann Baker, Mrs. Oscar Bush, Mrs. Leonard Todd, of Americus.

Get Gift For Fourth
Mrs. Ed Gruber, who pays us a social call ever so often, discovered that we like onions (wonder how she did?) so she came in Tuesday bringing us a beautiful onion measuring 14-inches in circumference, also some nice Irish potatoes, so now our dinner for the Fourth is well on its way...
Incidentally, Mrs. Gruber raised the onion along with quite a few other nice ones from slips in her own garden.


Edward and Alice were married in the Parsonage by Rev. Carhart.

OBITUARY - Frances (Boring) Hoss (mother of Mary Virginia (Hoss) Davault)

For the Spy.
Mrs. Frances Hoss, the subject of this brief and imperfect memoir was a native of the State of Maryland, having been born in Baltimore county in 1785. Mrs. H. was the daughter of William Boren. In 1806, she was united in marriage with Abram Hoss, and became the mother of eight children. As a companion, she was devoted and affectionate; and as a mother, kind and affable, but observed a strict moral discipline. In 1819, Mrs. Hoss became a member of the M. E. Church of which she remained a consistent and worthy member until her death. Her religion was not a mere formal profession, but consisted of an active and zealous defence of the doctrines and precepts of the gospel, and a lively and experimental knowledge of its Devine truths. She was indeed a Christian by faith, a Christian in sentiment, and a Christian by practice. It is not derogatory to her character as a Christian to say that she was a Methodist, and was a zealous advocate of the Methodistic usage of class meeting. In class this good woman often spoke to her brethren in Christ, of the power of a saving faith -- the experimental knowledge of God in the pardon of sin, and the comforts of a lively hope of Heaven, based upon faith in the merits of Christ's blood. The exercises could have no other tendency, than to quicken and strengthen her own Christian purposes and those of her class-mates.
For some days, however, before her death, she had some alienation of mind, so that she was incapable of communicating to her friends those lively expressions which her uniform Christian life justified them in expecting to hear. But suspension of mind does not affect the genuineness of a Christian's experience. She died, we doubt not, a Christian's, and has gone to receive a Christian's reward.

Note: Albert Robert "Bob" DeVault, grandson of Alyett French DeVault had some old pictures of the family and some old papers. Included in the old papers were several sheets of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2 " lined note paper. On these sheets were the names, birth and death dates of Davault/DeVault family members. The handwriting is clear and very elegant. Almost as if it was done as a school exercise. I have seen similar sheets with similar handwriting and the same type of notations in the collection of papers that belonged to Emma (DeVault) Harpole. I don't think it was Emma's handwriting but I have not spent much time analyzing it. The sheet that Bob DeVault has the birth and deaths dates for Peter and Mary (Hoss) Davault. It reads as follows:
Mary Hoss was born May 12, 1809.
Peter Davault was married to Mary Hoss Oct. 27th 1831.
Peter Davault died April 16th 1872 was born March 28th 1808 - age 64 yrs - 18 days
Mary Davault died June 29th 1883.
Henry Devault was born May 8th 1833.
Caroline Devault was born Nov. 10th 1837.
Henry Devault was married to Caroline Euphemia Clark Dec. 20th 1860.
Note that the spelling of Davault changed to Devault (without the capital "V") with Henry - although we know he was born and lived much of his adult life as Davault. So I would guess that this note was written sometime between 1885 and 1900.
This is the only place where I have seen an exact date given for the birth of Mary (Hoss) Davault.

GOLDEN WEDDING ANNOUNCEMENT - New Florence Leader

Golden Wedding
A kind providence occasionally, not often, permits the blessing of husband and wife celebrating a half century of wedded life. Such came to Mr. and Mrs. Fred Davault when with near 100 guests assembled in their pleasant home in Davault addition Wednesday, Jan. 8th, 1913, they celebrated the golden wedding in gladness, feasting and thankfulness.
January 8, 1863 was rather a rainy day, in the farm residence near Montgomery City upon which now lives Solon Brandt, Mr. Davault and Miss Ellen McCleary were united for weal or woe under the ministration of Rev. George Smith. Jos McCleary and Miss Sharp, Charlie See and another Miss Sharp, waited upon the couple during the ceremony. One hundred and fifty guests were present to partake in the joy of that occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Davault settled on a part of his father's farm just at the southern edge of town and have been part and parcel of this community this half century. Five boys have added to the noise of their home, now all men and occupying responsible places in the commercial affairs of a busy world. Emmett, Edward and Bruce engaged in business in Tulsa, Oklahoma were not able to attend the celebration Wednesday evening.
Wednesday evening, January 8th 1913, the guests assembled with Mr. and Mrs. Davault between six and seven o'clock. A few minutes before dinner was announced, Mr. Davault attired in the conventional black with white tie and Mrs. Davault arrayed in Chiffon over white silk, entered the parlor and took their place under a large bell swinging from an arch of Holly. Rev. W. G. Rigg to the surprise of Mr. and Mrs. Davault rendered the following humorous ceremony.
Dearly Beloved, we are gathered in the presence of these witnesses because of the hasty and inconsiderate conduct of these two persons present half a century ago. And I abjure you both if you know any reason why you should continue to follow the same line of life, that you forever hold your peace thereabout. And I further urge that if any one present knows any reason why these two persons shall continue to live as man and wife that they keep it secret on penalty of single blessedness the remainder of their respective lives.
And I require and charge you both as you shall stand before the awful throne of judgement, if either knows anything about the other that you tell it and that right quickly.
Frederick, do you promise this present that you will allow this woman to support you and in manly courage treat her half as well as you do the washerwoman and on an equal footing with the cook? And will you faithfully stick to your promise for fully a week?
Ellen, do you promise to continue to boss this man as you have done for the past threescore years, and under all circumstances take his part especially when it's something that he likes? Will you keep him as thin and as timid as we now see him by casting pleasant smiles and glances to the grocery boy and other stranger as may chance to pass this way?
As much as Frederick and Ellen have both refused our serious ministrations in their behalf, I now pronounce them incorrigibles together, and turn them over to the tender mercies of their many friends.
Mr. and Mrs. Davault led the way to the tastily decorated dining room where dinner was served, including everything from turkey and oysters down to ice cream and cake.
Mr. and Mrs. Davault never seemed happier and the fifty years passed showed no signs upon their activity and entertaining qualities. May their married life continue unbroken for the years to come and the joy and happiness of the home with children and children's children, increase as the years go by.
Mr. Alf Davault was the only person present in 1863 to witness the first marriage that witnessed this one of 1913.
The out of town guests included Harvey Marmaduke and wife, Carbondale, Ill., William Davault and wife, Williamsburg, C. A. Davault and wife, Farber; J. B. DeVault and wife, Martinsburg; Chas A. Bast and wife, Mexico, George Bast Mexico.
Many nice presents were left with Mr. and Mrs. Davault as tokens of love and friendship.

Note: The ironstone gold design tea-leaf plates that were given to Fred and Ellen at their golden wedding celebration are now in the possession of Cathy (Crabtree) Cook.

NEWSPAPER ANNOUNCEMENT

PIONEERS CELEBRATE THEIR GOLDEN WEDDING
MR. AND MRS. FRED DAVAULT
NEW FLORENCE, Mo., Jan. 8. -- Mr. and Mrs. Fred Davault, who celebrated their golden wedding at their home in New Florence to-day, are among the pioneer settlers of Montgomery County.
Mr. Davault's father, Peter Daavult [Davault] came to Missouri at an early day from Tennessee and settled on the Boonslick road, one mile south of New Florence, now the line of the Missouri State highway.
He erected a tavern which became famous as the stopping place of the early-day traveler and shippers who drove their cattle to St. Louis.
He also purchased several thousand acres of Government land and was a large slave owner.
Many of the old slaves refused to leave the old homestead when liberated and remained with the members of the family until their death.
Mrs. Davault was a daughter of Thomas McCleary, who came from Virginia and settled near Montgomery City.
The wedding anniversary was observed by and old-time dinner.

C. A. Davault, Farber, MO Forum, 1913; from Newland DeVault, HENRY DEWALD 1733-1817 YORK COUNTY PENNSYLVANIA:;; pages 218-219:
Their Golden Wedding
An event that will linger long in the memory of the writer, and in the memory of many endeared to him by the ties of relationship and friendship, was the occasion of the fiftieth wedding anniversary of his parents, F. Davault and wife, at their home in New Florence, the evening of Wednesday, January the eighth, 1913.
For some time they had been planning that if spared to live they would celebrate the occasion. About one hundred guests were present to enjoy the occasion, many of whom were relatives of the family. A feature of the occasion was a mock ceremony, performed by Rev. Riggs, a Methodist minister. The couple entered the parlor and stood under a large arch of evergreens, from which a bell was suspended. At the conclusion of the mirth and provoking ceremony they were greeted by a shower of rice and following congratulations they led the way to the dining room where a sumptuous repast had been prepared. Four large turkeys had been sacrificed for the occasion, and there was an abundance of other provisions, fruits and ice cream. In the days long ago when people used to get married, say fifty years ago, the dinner was always an important feature of the occasion, and was never sparingly served. The faithful old black mammy was disgraced had the roasts run short. Perhaps our parents had this in mind in planning their anniversary celebration.
The gifts began to arrive early in the day and a table prepared for their reception was loaded with an array of goldenware, both ornamental and useful.. Among other things presented by friends was an elegant golden-oak dining table and buffet of similar design. Numerous letters of congratulations were received from distant friends. A congratulatory message was also received from Speaker Champ Clark expressing his good wishes. Three ten dollar pieces were received from the three boys at Tulsa, Okla., who were unable to be present.
Mr. Davault was born 83 years ago on the Old Homestead which is located on the old Boonlick road, made famous by Daniel Boone, the pioneer scout and hunter, one mile south of the present site of New Florence. It is also 4 ½ miles east of Danville, the historic county seat of Montgomery County, and is along the line of the newly formed State Highway. This large and commodious house with it’s spacious halls and labyrinth of rooms still stands. In the early days it was known as a Tavern. It was built by his father, Peter Davault, who came to Missouri from Tennessee in 1827 and was the favorite stopping place for the western travelers before the time of railroads. For many years the feeders from the west, who drove their herds to the St. Louis market, stopped in relay at this place. The elder Davault here acquired possession of two thousand acres of land by preemption and purchase, part woodland, part prairie. Mrs. Davault, whose maiden name was McCleary, was also a member of one of the pioneer families of Montgomery County. Her father came from Virginia and made settlement near Montgomery City. Both families were large slave owners, many refusing to leave the old homesteads when the Proclamation Of Freedom was issued by President Lincoln.
The celebration of fifty years journey along the roadway of life is a remarkable event and out from the hearts of those near and dear to them comes a flow of gratitude and thankfulness that Time has been so merciful and Providence so kind. It brings joy and happiness to the heart, especially so if it is your father and your mother.

Note: A large Mantle clock was one of Frederick's and Ellen's wedding gifts, January 8, 1863. It is a Seth Thomas one-day clock, upright rectangular shape with reverse painted flower design on glass door. It was in use for years in Catherine (Davault) Niedergerke's home; now in possession of Mary Dee (Niedergerke) Cochran and still working.

New Florence people heard with deep regret of the death of Prof. A. Davault of Jonesburg, who was well known and highly esteemed as a former citizen of our town, one who has been for many years most intimately associated with every enterprise, which tended towards the growth or development of his native town. His quiet, unassuming demeanor won for him a host of friends. He was for a number of years one of the most popular and efficient educators, who have ever had charge of the New Florence schools. After his removal to Jonesburg, where he has since resided, he ever evinced a warm interest in his former home and always retained his property situated near town. A large number of relatives and friends from this place were in attendance at his funeral Monday. The warmest sympathy is extended the bereaved family.

Abraham Davault
Abraham Davault was born in 1837. His early education was gleaned at Danville. He held the chair of Greek and Latin in the Lexington college for five years and was president one year, at the end of which his health became broken.
After farming until his health was restored Prof. Davault took the same chair in Hardin College that he had filled so well at Lexington and remained there three years. In 1883 Mr. Davault entered the hardware business at Jonesburg and continued the same business until his death which came May 11.
In 1870 he and Miss Madora Jones were united in marriage.
A wife and two daughters, Miss Annie and Mrs. Pfaff mourne his departure.
At the time of his death Mr. Davault was president of the Board of Stewards of the M. E. Church. His life was a constant christian life, - his time was at the service of his church and he materially assisted its welfare. To have lived a useful life and to have accomplished much good is the epitome of his life. The friends of the family here would console them with the thought that the welfare of a life well spent is far better in the great future than it was while the life was being spent.

OBITUARY

Abraham Davault was born March 3, 1835 in Montgomery Co., MO. He received a liberal education and inherited the characteristics of his father, a desire to do good in a humble way, devoted many years to teaching, with eminent success.
Mr. Davault was united in marriage July 14, 1868 to Miss Medora F. Jones, daughter of Thomas and Catherine Jones. Mrs. Davault was for several years in charge of the department of Music in Central College, Lexington, MO and has since held a place of distinction. Mr. and Mrs. Davault have had four children, of whom two are living, Juliet Emma and Anna Theresa. In 1883 Mr. Davault engaged in the hardware business in Jonesburg, a town in Montgomery Co., named for Mrs. Davault's grandfather.

Note: Abraham's family, a family whose patriarch was a professor of mathematics, seems to have had a great deal of trouble in recalling their birth and death dates. Records used in genealogical research often contain discrepancies. However, the many differences in the records for Abraham's family exceed anything I have priviously seen. I have tried to choose those dates that seemed the most reasonable.

Note: My wife and I received from Emmy Lou Nunnelly the family Bible of Abraham and Medora. It is a massive, leather bound Bible with extensive illustrations published sometime after 1875. The front cover is embossed "From T. & J. A. C. JONES To A. & M. E. Davault". Unfortunately it does not have any family information inside. It is a wonderful old Bible and we really cherish this gift from Emmy Lou.

Newland DeVault reported:

"One of my early rememberances is of going over to "Uncle Alf" for dinner with my grandparents; and seeing them at the "Old Settlers Reunion" at New Florence, with tables full of food and visitors having a hard time deciding with whom to eat. "The Old Settlers Reunion" was to me a wonderland of food, fun and exitement. He was appointed Deputy Sheriff by his brother-in-law, David Knox, later appointed to the same office by Sheriff Gregory and after 1874 serving two terms as Sheriff. He later resumed farming - his farm consisting of 135 acres - a part of the old Peter Davault homestead -- also raised stock. They were Methodists."

A few nights ago a young cyclone struck in the vicinity of Alf Davault's farm. Fences were laid down like straws. At Mr. Davault's the bay window was damaged and the family very much frightened.

MONTGOMERY STANDARD, MONTGOMERY CITY MO; Apr 20 1923; microfilm; State Historical Soc. of MO, Columbia MO:
Celebrates 81 Birthday
Alf Davault of near New Florence was 81 years old Saturday, April 14, and to celebrate the occasion a birthday supper was given at the home of his daughter, Mrs.. M. G. Lavender, in that city, some thirty relatives and friends being present. Mr. Davault was born and raised within a half mile of New Florence. He is a prominent Democrat and has held both state and county offices. We congratulate him on attaining this ripe old age.

NEWSPAPER ARTICLE - Montgomery Standard, Montgomery City, Missouri, April 27, 1923

Saturday evening, April 14, 1923, about 30 invited guests assembled at the hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. M. G. Lavender, in this city, the occasion being a compliment to the hostess's father, Mr. Alfred Davault, on his 81st birthday. Mr. Davault is one of the oldest native born residents of this place; he was born and raised less than one-half mile from town, on the Boonslick road where his parents, who were early pioneers from Kentucky (sic) pre-empted a large tract of land south of town and founded the Davault Tavern on the Boonslick Trail. Later they remodeled it into a modern country home, where they spent the remainder of their lives and raised a large family of children. Mr. J. U. Knox, a grandson, now resides there and recently a D.A.R. marker has been placed by "the old tavern site". Mr. Davault is the only one of the family who remains in this vicinity. He now resides on his farm adjoining town, which he has owned for nearly 60 years. His wife, formerly Miss Lizzie Gardner, of this place, is the presiding genius of his well appointed home, where a smile and a warm welcome awaits all comers. They have 6 children, all of whom are honored and esteemed members of society and are filling useful positions in life.
Mr. Davault still retains his usual activities and devotes much time to his church and the I.O.O.F., where he is always found holding a prominent official position, and is a favorite teacher in the Sunday School. He is a prominent Democrat and served both state and county well for many years. He delights to spend much time and effort in his garden and among his fruits and flowers, and enjoys hunting and fishing.
All of the family with the exception on one son, Alfred, Jr., who is employed in the far west, were present to enjoy the evening with him. After much pleasant conversation and jolly games all were invited to the dining room where the lights were unespectedly switched off. In a moment the two little grandsons, Davault Nunnelly and Harold Lavender, appeared in the doorway bearing between them a daintily appointed tray laden with a large glistening white angle food cake wreathed in fragrant spring blossoms and brightly adorned with 81 lighted candles; quickly they crossed the room and presented it to Grandpa as his birthday gift. Dainty refreshments were then served by the hostess, assisted by Misses Lillian and Edith Davault and Mrs. H. H. Davault; later the little ones present were the center of attraction, and all enjoyed the beautiful songs rendered by Miss Edith Davault with Mrs. Lavender at the piano.
At a late hour, after wishing Mr. Davault many more long years brightened with warm friendships, sweet music, fragrant flowers and good things to eat, the guests departed, thanking Mr. and Mrs. Lavender for a very delightful evening.
Those attending were Mr. and Mrs Alfred Davault, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Knox, Mr. and Mrs. J. U. Knox, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Knox, Elmer Duebbert and family, Ad Bishop and family, Howard Nunnelly and family, Herbert Davault and wife, P. A. Davis and wife, Mrs. Fannie Davault, Mrs. Angie Pemberton, Miss Martha Knox, Misses Lillian and Edith Davault, William Knox, Jr.

NEWSPAPER ARTICLE - The Montgomery County Leader, about August 1932:
In our last we mentioned the New Florence fishing party on Loutre opposite Capt. Callaway’s grave. Later, on their return, they called to see the Old Mule and have some little matters adjusted, which we took under advisement for a few days. Being acquainted with all parties we have tried not to assess penalties above what they are able to stand. Of course, Alf Davault, being the main aggressor, his fine is a little heavy. As he was the last one to get hold of the jug, consequently there was nothing left for the rest, until the good woman said, “divide up, or you won’t be able to get home.” So he is assessed two days work on the public road and two days work on the streets of New Florence, or else apologize to the members of the fishing party.
M F See, for trying to hook a boy’s fishing tackle and informing on others, is assessed at three days hard work on the public road, and also to see that the boy’s hook is kept baited next time. William H. Knox was accused of being too quiet, consequently, he must furnish a double portion of grub for the next fishing party. As it seems that Jno. U. Knox appropriated to his own use more than his proportion of the rations, it is adjudged that at no distant day he must provide a dinner for the party and invite all to partake, including The Old Mule. Dr. W. A. Crockett has two charges against him. He is charged with smuggling some of the women’s garments, also that he bunked with G. Pitman Smith, he woke up one morning to find the Col.’s head tied up in a red handkerchief, and thinking he was a woman, he tried to kiss him. His assessment is that he apologize to the party and set up the cigars and lemonade. While Col. Smith was rather talkative about the objections to the red cap, we assess his punishment as follows: That being an attorney he must see that all the above judgments are carried out to the letter.
