M, ID# 1282, b. 23 October 1854, d. 11 April 1926
  • Scrapbook*: "B. M. CLOPTON, owner of the Clopton Planing Mills, 213 East Fourth Avenue [in Corsicana], in establishing the Clopton Mills thirty years ago erected one of the commercial strongholds that has helped to increase the wealth and population of Navarro County.
       "This concern was organized in 1892 under the joint ownership of Clopton and Bragg, but was later bought out by Mr. Clopton who owned the business alone until some years later when Mr. Charles Hagins purchased a partnership. The mill turns out every kind of novelty mill work including sash, doors, windows, built-in cabinets, and various other built-in features. All ornamental work and inside fixtures of the Palace and Grand Theaters were done by this concern.
       "A native of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and the son of J. A. and Lucy Wade Clopton, Mr. Clopton came to Texas with his parents February 19, 1874, when he was nineteen years of age. The family settled in Navarro County where a farm was purchased, and Mr. Clopton spent the first year of his life in Texas plowing his father's land with a team of oxen. By the end of that year, however, he determined to follow his own trade as contractor and came to Corsicana to establish himself in business. He continued in the contracting business until 1892 when he opened the Clopton Planing Mills.
       "In 1884 he erected a home for himself and family at 521 North Beaton Street and he is still living there. He has a son, Sam H. Clopton of Beaumont, and one daughter, Mrs. A. P. Simpson of Corsicana, whose son Donald Simpson is Mr. Clopton's only grandchild.
       "Mr. Clopton was for six years a Councilman in the Third ward. He is a member of the Odd Fellows, the Waterworks Club, and attends the First Christian Church."22
  • Obituary*: “Mr. Clopton Dies.
       “The death of Mr. B. M. Clopton, one of Corsicana’s valued citizens, which occurred Saturday morning about 10 o’clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. P. Simpson, has brought sadness to the hearts of his large concourse of friends, who extend deepest sympathy to the heart-broken loved ones left to mourn his loss. The funeral took place this afternoon from the First Christian church at 3:30 with burial in Oakwood.
       “His brother, Mr. T. S. Clopton of Amarillo; his son, Sam Clopton of Beaumont; and step daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Qualte [Quaite?] of Waxahachie were here Sunday. Other relatives and friends arrived today to attend the funeral.”.23
  • Note*: The 1880 census for Navarro County, Texas describes him as a carpenter living with his parents. In 1892 he opened Clopton Planing Mills in Corsicana, which provided sashes, doors, windows, and other mill work. He served on the Corsicana city council for six years, attended the First Christian Church, and was a member of the Odd Fellows. He was survived by a daughter, a son, a brother, and a sister.24,25
