Short Biographies of the Grand Jury

Samuel Gilmore of Mano was born in Bronson, Mich., Jan 28, 1851, and lived there until 7 years of age, when his mother died and his father moved to Osceola Iowa, and in 1863, they moved to Chillicothe, MO, where they resided until 1869 when they moved to where he now lives on Rock Creek, in this county. In 1876 he and Mrs. Mary F. Wise were married to whom three children have been born, only one of whom is living. Mr. Gilmore was postmaster ten years and is justice of the peace on his third term, and has married 49 couples. Sam is a rather noted person, as he is only four feet in height, weighs 85 pounds, wears a 7 3-8 hat, and number 4 shoes. He is a successful farmer and is doing well. Many years ago he hauled lumber from the pineries in Arkansas to the northern counties and in fact has done almost all kinds of work. He has received many offers from circuses and showmen to travel and exhibit himself, but he turned them down on account of having his family and business matters.

Cassville Democrat, September 7, 1907

*Pheba Ann Taylor died in 26 Oct 1912 in Cassville Barry MO. If the historical write up above is accurate, Phebe is not his mother as it states he and his father moved from MI after his mother passed. I have not been able to find the name of another Mrs. Gilmore married to William who passed away in 1902 Cassville Barry MO.
