Thomas Connor Ballard

M, ID# 10552, b. 13 June 1913, d. 9 November 1939

Thomas Connor Ballard, from his newspaper obituary.
  • Obituary*: "Thomas Ballard Dies in Plane Crash in Wyoming
       "WYOMING CRASH FATAL TO THOMAS BALLARD
       "Tom Ballard, 26, former Omaha policeman, whose aptitude in handling planes won him a copilot’s job with United Air Lines last August, was found dead in the wreckage of his cub plane in the mountains near Horse Creek, Wyoming.
       "Ballard was flying the tiny plane from Omaha to the coast when he dropped from sight last Wednesday. A search was started for him when he failed to return to his airlines job Saturday at Seattle, after a leave of absence.
       "He left Omaha Tuesday and was last reported at Cheyenne, Wyoming the following day. The scene of the crash is about 30 miles east of Laramie and about halfway between that city and Cheyenne.
       "Mr. and Mrs. Thomas C. Thomas of Laramie discovered the wrecked plane while hiking in the region Sunday and notified Laramie police.
       "William L. Dorton, a government trapper, reported he had first noticed the wrecked plane last Thursday but thought at the time it was a grader which had been working in the area and did not investigate.
       "Sheriff E. L. Wood and Coroner Joseph Shannon of Laramie decided the plane fell at midnight Wednesday, Ballard’s wrist watch having stopped at 12 o’clock.
       "It was snowing heavily at the time he was believed to have crashed, and location of the wreckage indicated Ballard had circled back from his westward flight and was heading toward the beacon light on Pilot Knob 15 miles away.
       "Ballard has gone to Omaha for his plane after finding a purchaser for it on the coast, his former colleagues at the airport reported.
       "One of 14 children of Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Ballard who have operated a ranch south of Valentine, Tom received his elementary education in the Wood Lake school, then attended the Chadron Normal after which he taught his home school for a year. Finding this monotonous, he went to Omaha where he joined the police department as a motorcycle patrolman.
       "Even the thrills and spills of chasing speeders and reckless drivers over the slippery streets on a motorcycle were not exactly what he wanted, he decided after several months on the force.
       "An aviation enthusiast since boyhood, he gravitated to the local airport, because a student pilot under A. R. (Barney) Burnham.
       "While he was gaining rapid advancement on the police department, he made even greater progress in aviation.
       "A conscientious police officer, he climaxed his career on the speeder squad in December, 1936, when a hunch and a good memory enabled him to clear up a hit-run case in which one child was killed and three injured.
       "For this feat he received a one hundred dollar reward which had been offered by the World-Herald for solution of the case, commendations of his superior officers and a promotion to the detective bureau. He again was promoted to detective sergeant, in May 1938.
       "An apt flying student, he forged ahead rapidly in the air. All his spare time including vacations, was devoted to planes and flying. He never passed an opportunity to take a plane aloft. He amassed a rather astonishing total of more than seven hundred hours up to the time he left for his airlines job.
       "Last April he took leave of absence from his police job to take a course in “blind flying” at the Boeing school in Oakland, California. He completed the course with high honors in June, resigned from the police force two months later to take the airlines job.
       "Sheriff Wood and Coroner Shannon took Ballard’s body to Laramie.
       "The plane as we understand it had evidently been put into a severe bank where but small lift is exerted on the wings a down draft of air must have forced the plane to the ground where a wing was clipped causing the ship to roll over with the disastrous consequences as recited.
       "Thomas Connor Ballard, son of Mr and Mrs W. N. Ballard, was born June 13th 1913 and was 26 years, 4 months and 25 days old at the time of his fatal accident.
       "Always ambitious, he had progressed a long way in his chosen vocations, had proven a faithful and loyal employee, always giving his best in the service of his employers and remaining true to his family and friends.
       "Surviving are his father and mother, Mr and Mrs W. N. Ballard, eight brothers: Edward Willoughby, Walter Goodwin, William Lindsey, Frank Dudley, James Ellis, Billie; John Albert and Homer Cornelius; five sisters: Mary Elizabeth Morgan, Esther Margaret Johnston, Ruth Katherine, Vera Matilda Grey and Helen Sylvia.
       "During the time of his education at the Wood Lake school, from which he graduated in 1930, he was a regular attendant at the United Church and was active in school and civic affairs. Aggressive and progressive, he was a friend of all and all were his friends and we all rejoiced in his rapid advancement after leaving his home and friends to make his own way in this world.
       "One brother, Charles Donald, passed away years ago, the remaining members of the family all to be present to attend the funeral which will be held in Wood Lake, Friday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock from the high school auditorium, Rev. Danielson officiating.
       "Mr and Mrs Bud Grey have arrived from Washington, D. C., Mr and Mrs Lynn Ballard are enroute from San Diego; California; and other relatives living nearer home being present.
       "Pallbearers will be Dr Randall; William Hanna; Donald Higgins; Chester Krasch; Ansel Wrage and Charles Tetherow.
       "People throughout the country join in extending to the bereaved their heartfelt sympathy at the untimely death of this young citizen who had such a brilliant future before him."13
  • Note*: • He was on the Omaha, Nebraska, police force as a motorcycle patrolman and then a detective. A few months before his death he was hired as a pilot for United Air Lines.
    • He was killed when his plane crashed in the mountains in southern Wyoming.14,15,16

       "On Friday of last week Donald, the three-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. N. Ballard, was suddenly taken very ill at their ranch home southwest of here and was soon in convulsions. Everything possible for his relief was resorted to, but he passed away in a short time and before the doctor who had been summoned could arrive.

Lulu May DeLashmutt

F, ID# 10571, b. 7 July 1869, d. 11 July 1952
  • Scrapbook*: "DeLashmutt-Dean.
       "The old adage against borrowing trouble is forever being emphasized anew, and the folly of it being more completely established. For example there were a good many of the friends of Mr. C. E. Dean who had grown apprehensive that he was going to leave the scripture injunction half unfulfilled. He had left father and mother but the cleaving unto a wife seemed to be not in his mind. But behold how appearances deceive. For on Wednesday, June 15, he stood as gallantly as anyone might with Miss Lulu DeLashmutt and together they uttered the vows that made them one for life.
       "The day was an ideal one—“a perfect day in June”—and the occasion was all that could be desired. The decorations were unusually profuse, the beautiful June roses being everywhere in evidence. It was an ideal wedding in every way and one long to be remembered by those present.
       "Miss DeLashmutt is the daughter of Mr. W. C. DeLashmutt and is so well and favorably known that words of commendation are hardly needed. And yet they are hardly avoided, for those who know her find it difficult to speak of her at all without the warmest praise. In the home, in the social circle, in the public schools where she taught for several years, in every walk in life her true womanhood was displayed. Mr. Dean has made for himself a place in the legal profession of Mills county as well as in the esteem of the community in which he has lived. For several years past Mr. Dean has been city attorney of Glenwood. Possessing energy and ability, coupled with habits of industry and economy, his future success in life is assured.
       "They were married at the beautiful home of Mr. DeLashmutt’s in Pacific City by Rev. M. D. Reed of the Congregational church. A large company of friends were present to witness the event and congratulate both of the contracting parties. Their home will still be in Glenwood where a host of friends will not only wish them abundant happiness but will be glad as neighbors to do whatever they may to bring their well wishes to completest realization."15
  • Obituary*: "Mrs. Lulu Dean Passes Away at Glenwood Home
    Mrs. Lulu M. Dean passed away at her home in Glenwood Friday evening July 11.
       "Funeral services were conducted at Reid’s Chapel Monday afternoon, July 14, at 2:30 o’clock when the Rev. Lawrence Murphy, pastor of the Congregational church officiated.
       "Mrs. R. O. Wimer was the musician playing hymns and selections chosen by Mrs. Dean, herself, sometime ago.
       "Serving as casket bearers were Whitney Gillilland, John Wright, Clyde Rhoads, Edwin Carter, Gerald Fickel and A. C. Buch. Interment was made in Glenwood cemetery.
       "Mrs. Dean was born in Pacific City on July 7, 1889 and was the daughter of Wm. Clay and Sarah Elizabeth DeLashmutt. She was the eldest of five children, two of whom preceded her in death; a sister Ola and a brother Lynn.
       "On June 15, 1898 she was united in marriage to Chadwick E. Dean, lawyer and banker who preceded her in death in 1932.
       "She is survived by one son Leonard C. Dean, one grandson John C. Dean both of Glenwood; a sister, Mrs. Jessie Stone, Phoenix, Arizona, and a brother Ernest DeLashmutt of Pacific Junction.
       "Mrs. Dean attended Pacific City School, Glenwood High School, Grinnell College and was graduated from Tabor College; later teaching in the Pacific City and Glenwood Schools. She was a member of PEO Eastern Star, Woman’s Club, and American Legion Auxiliary. She was a devout member of the Congregational Church for the past 64 years, and derived great pleasure in the teaching of her Sunday School class of young people. She was an influence on their lives and up to the time of her death kept in touch with many of them.
       "To know Mrs. Dean was to love her. Her interests were many in family and community. She was always striving to make the world a better place in which to live. She lived her religion every hour of each day, by her kindness, consideration, patience and tolerance of others. She saw only the good in her fellowman—always put others before self, and was a shining example of everything fine and beautiful on this earth."16
  • Note*: She attended Pacific City School, Glenwood High School, Grinnell College and was graduated from Tabor College; later teaching in the Pacific City and Glenwood Schools. She was a member of PEO Eastern Star, Woman’s Club, and American Legion Auxiliary. She was a devout member of the Congregational Church for the 64 years immediately prior to her death.16

Jessie Winifred DeLashmutt

F, ID# 10572, b. 7 August 1875, d. 2 December 1952
  • Scrapbook*: “Married
       "John Clarence Stone and Jessie DeLashmutt were married yesterday afternoon, September 12th, at two o’clock P. M. at the home of the bride’s father at Pacific City. The groom is the only son and child of Attorney General John Y. Stone, and his wife, Mrs. Harriet Stone, and Miss DeLashmutt is the second daughter of W. C. DeLashmutt. The families to which these young people belong are among the oldest and most honored in Mills county and they themselves are deservedly popular. The event was peculiarly a happy one, uniting in so close a bond for two such families, and one in which their friends and well-wishers—and that includes the whole country hereabouts—are particularly interested. None were present except the immediate members and connections of the Stone and DeLashmutt families and one or two friends from a distance. The parlors of the tasteful DeLashmutt home were beautifully decorated with the national flower, the golden rod, and the dining room with smilax. Just at two, Mrs. Swope sat down to the piano and began Mendelssohn’s wedding march and a moment or two later the bride and groom entered the room unattended. Rev. F. L. Hayward, pastor of the Methodist church, performed the marriage ceremony. It was of the simplest possible form and had a dignity a more elaborate ceremonial often lacks. The bride was truly charming in a white silk gown trimmed with Valenciennes lace that was simplicity itself and in perfect taste. She carried a dozen pure white roses with maiden hair fern and wore a few in her hair. There never was a bride more simply and effectively dressed and there certainly never was a prettier one. After the congratulations and refreshments, Mr. and Mrs. Stone were driven to Pacific Junction where they took the evening train for Omaha. After a short trip they will return to Glenwood and start to housekeeping in their future home on Vine street. The invited guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Y. Stone, Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Stone, Mr. and Mrs. P. L. DeLashmutt, Mrs. J. W. Gillilland, Mrs. D. Orr, Mr. and Mrs. D. W. DeLashmutt, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. DeLashmutt, Mr. and Mrs. J. V. DeLashmutt, Mr. and Mrs. E. Starbuck, Mr. and Mrs. M. J. Williams, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Swope, Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Townsend, Mr. and Mrs. R. Townsend, Mr. and Mrs. S. Gillilland, Misses Frankie Starbuck, Viva Gillilland, Gertie Gillilland, Sadie Black, Pearl Gillilland, Messrs. Eisemand, Gilliland, Bernard Gillilland. The guests from abroad were, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson DeLashmutt, of Whiting, Mr. Elmer Stone, of White Plains, Mo., Mr. and Mrs. Knight and Mrs. Chas. Knight, of Silver City, Mr. and Mrs. O. H. Lucas of Council Bluffs, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Follett, of Malvern, Mr. and Mrs. John Carson of Geneva, Nebr., Mr. and Mrs. McCrimmons, of Denver, Colo., Miss Lila Robinson, of Chicago and Mr. T. C. Dawson, of Council Bluffs.”.18
  • Note*: She has been described as "one of the prettiest of women." She and John lived at Pacific Junction, Iowa.19

William Lindsey DeLashmutt Sr.

M, ID# 10573, b. 2 October 1880, d. 25 April 1911
  • Obituary*: • "William Lindsay DeLashmutt, aged 30 years, of Pacific Junction, Ia., died at noon Tuesday at the Jennie Edmundson Memorial hospital in this city, of stomach trouble after an illness of three weeks. The body was removed from the hospital to Cutler’s undertaking rooms to await shipment to Pacific Junction.
       "Deceased has been prominent in Pacific Junction and vicinity for many years. He was a Mason and a member of the Knights of Pythias. Besides his wife he leaves two sons, Donald Eugene and William Lindsay jr., and one brother, Ernest DeLashmutt. The funeral will be held from the residence at Pacific Junction and interment will be at Glenwood."
    • "DELASHMUTT FUNERAL HELD
       "Large Crowd Attends Services Held at His Glenwood Home.
       "GLENWOOD, Ia., April 27.—The funeral of William L. DeLashmutt, who died at Jennie Edmundson hospital in Council Bluffs, Tuesday the 25th, was held from his home here this afternoon. The funeral services were very largely attended, nearly 100 vehicles being in the procession to the grave. The funeral sermon was preached by Dr. O. O. Smith of Council Bluffs, and a male quartet from this city furnished several selections.
       "William L. DeLashmutt was born in 1880 and although only 30 years and six months of age when he died, had become very widely known in this and surrounding counties and had a host of friends. He was born in the home from which he was buried today, received a public school education in this county, and a business education in Lincoln, Neb. He was employed four years in the State bank of Glenwood, and later returned to the old home farm which he purchased.
       "He married Jessie Lorene Jacobs April 25, 1906, just five years previous to his death. He leaves besides his wife, two sons, aged 4 and 1 years respectively, also a brother, two sisters and a father and mother. The sisters are Mrs. Stone, whose husband is a son of Hon. John Y. Stone, and Mrs. Dean, wife of Attorney Dean of this place. Mr. DeLashmutt was a Mason and Knight of Pythias and the impressive ritual of the Masonic order was a part of the burial service at the grave."18,19

John Clarence Stone

M, ID# 10582, b. 5 May 1871, d. 3 July 1919
  • Scrapbook*: “Married
       "John Clarence Stone and Jessie DeLashmutt were married yesterday afternoon, September 12th, at two o’clock P. M. at the home of the bride’s father at Pacific City. The groom is the only son and child of Attorney General John Y. Stone, and his wife, Mrs. Harriet Stone, and Miss DeLashmutt is the second daughter of W. C. DeLashmutt. The families to which these young people belong are among the oldest and most honored in Mills county and they themselves are deservedly popular. The event was peculiarly a happy one, uniting in so close a bond for two such families, and one in which their friends and well-wishers—and that includes the whole country hereabouts—are particularly interested. None were present except the immediate members and connections of the Stone and DeLashmutt families and one or two friends from a distance. The parlors of the tasteful DeLashmutt home were beautifully decorated with the national flower, the golden rod, and the dining room with smilax. Just at two, Mrs. Swope sat down to the piano and began Mendelssohn’s wedding march and a moment or two later the bride and groom entered the room unattended. Rev. F. L. Hayward, pastor of the Methodist church, performed the marriage ceremony. It was of the simplest possible form and had a dignity a more elaborate ceremonial often lacks. The bride was truly charming in a white silk gown trimmed with Valenciennes lace that was simplicity itself and in perfect taste. She carried a dozen pure white roses with maiden hair fern and wore a few in her hair. There never was a bride more simply and effectively dressed and there certainly never was a prettier one. After the congratulations and refreshments, Mr. and Mrs. Stone were driven to Pacific Junction where they took the evening train for Omaha. After a short trip they will return to Glenwood and start to housekeeping in their future home on Vine street. The invited guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Y. Stone, Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Stone, Mr. and Mrs. P. L. DeLashmutt, Mrs. J. W. Gillilland, Mrs. D. Orr, Mr. and Mrs. D. W. DeLashmutt, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. DeLashmutt, Mr. and Mrs. J. V. DeLashmutt, Mr. and Mrs. E. Starbuck, Mr. and Mrs. M. J. Williams, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Swope, Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Townsend, Mr. and Mrs. R. Townsend, Mr. and Mrs. S. Gillilland, Misses Frankie Starbuck, Viva Gillilland, Gertie Gillilland, Sadie Black, Pearl Gillilland, Messrs. Eisemand, Gilliland, Bernard Gillilland. The guests from abroad were, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson DeLashmutt, of Whiting, Mr. Elmer Stone, of White Plains, Mo., Mr. and Mrs. Knight and Mrs. Chas. Knight, of Silver City, Mr. and Mrs. O. H. Lucas of Council Bluffs, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Follett, of Malvern, Mr. and Mrs. John Carson of Geneva, Nebr., Mr. and Mrs. McCrimmons, of Denver, Colo., Miss Lila Robinson, of Chicago and Mr. T. C. Dawson, of Council Bluffs.”.8
