        Samuel Wallace McGuire, born Oct. 27, 1826, at West Liberty, Kentucky; died Sept. 20, 1914 at home in Howard, Kansas. Surviving him are three sons and two daughters, one daughter Edith having gone before, James W. of Oswego, Kans., Charles Lincoln and Pettus Starley of New Wilson, Okla., Rosa Ella LaRue of Spokane, Wash., and Anna Belle Wright of Howard, Kansas, twenty-three grand-children and sixteen great-grand-children. He was married July 1853 to Martha Ann Seyphers near West Liberty, Ky., to which union were born James William and Rosa Ella. Removing near Brownsville into Pettis county, Mo., in 1854, where his wife Martha A. died, Feb. 11, 1855. Ten years later he married Sarah Frances Foulke, a grand neice of Lord Cornwallis, the great English general, at Knob Noster, Md., Feb. 15, 1865 of which marital union where born Anna, Charlie, Pettus and Edith. The mother died Feb. 12, 1875 at Mt. Zion near Dunksburg, Mo. He maintained a home for his children after the loss of his life partner, at Harrisville, Mo., and Elk county, Kansas, and since March 1889 near Longton, then at Howard, Kansas since 1901.

        His Christian character best exemplified in life was proved by membership in the Christian church at Brownsville, transferred by letter to Mt. Zion, historic as a battle ground and church and the burial place of his parents and both wives and his brother, Greene. He survived his brothers and sisters eleven in all. He was the grandson of John McGuire of the 11th and 5th Va. Regiment, Revolutionary War, and of Wm. Ferguson of 15th and 5th Va. Regiment mustered out at close of Revolution, being the son of Samuel McGuire and Jeannette Ferguson, both of whom were born in Bryant's Station, Kentucky. He was grand-nephew of Robert Burns the Scottish poet.

        His martial spirit was a dominant note of his courage and character without fear yet discreet, a soldier of the 3rd Kentucky Regt., in the war with Mexico, with General Scott's triumphal arms from Vera Cruz to Montezuma Hall, City of Mexico. An officer through the Civil War with 5 Mo.; 27TH Mo. Cav. and 7 Mo. Cav., a captain brevetted major and with him were three brothers in his command. Personally brave, entertaining, a fine conversationalist, athletic in youth, weight 176 lobs, blue-eyed, black-haired and very fair. Though wounded in battle and an invalid from then through life, powerful breathing organs sustained for two score years and ten, under the tireless care of his daughter, Mrs. Wright and Frances his grand daughter, whose undying devotion is a sweeter tribute to his memory than any story written or any song of love, they were with him at death, Dr. DePew his family physician, Charles his son, Uncle Thomas Keene and Edith McLin. Also for the funeral came James W. McGuire and son Homer H. of Oswego, J. N. Murry and wife of Wichita, Kansas, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lees, and Rev. Gilbert Park of Plainsville, Kansas, who preached the funeral sermon at the Christian church with pathos of personal acquaintance touching the story of both wars, an able address and memorable tribute. The order of the Grand Army of the Republic conducted the beautiful burial service with flags and floral gifts. Interment was in Grace Lawn cemetery
