The stone house in which he died is said to have been the first stone dwelling house erected in Missouri. Respecting a question to how and where Eoone died, we are told that he had a serious attack or fever In the summer of 1820, just about eighty-eight years ago, at the home or Flanders Calloway. He recovered sufficiently to make a visit to the house of his son, Natnaiien tsoone, un xcm... Osage creek. The children heard or hlo .tnlraDca nnrl WIrP deslrOUS Of SCS- ing the old' man again.
