On Monday, March 13, at 5:30 PM, Mr. David Steinberg passed into the life beyond, after a week's illness. Funeral services were held at the family residence, on Adams Avenue, at 2:30 PM Wednesday. The services were conducted by Rev. H. G. Mais, assisted by the choir of Madison Ave. M. E. Church. In his remarks, Mr. Mais said, in part:
David Steinberg was born near Nuremberg, Germany, March 8, 1838. He came to America when he was thirteen years of age and lived for a short time at Williamsport, NY. From there he went to Rhode Island, where he resided until the fall of 1861. He then came to Lebanon and engaged in the mercantile business. After the close of the war in 1865, he removed to Rocheport, in Callaway County, Mo., where he remained one year. From there he went to Chester, IL. In 1869 he returned to Lebanon and engaged in business until 1879, after which he was connected with the firm of Wallace Bros. When this firm retired from business he engaged with Clark Bros, where he remained until the 7th of the present month, when he was fatally stricken.
During his residence in Chester, IL, he met Joan Adams, to whom he was married Feb 5, 1868. She, with their children, Albert, Ada, Leo, Mrs. Belle Copes, Mrs. Myrtle Morris, Everette, David and Roy, survive him.
He was born and reared to the Jewish faith, from which he never departed, tho he encouraged his family in attending Christian worship and gave toward the support of the church. He was an ardent believer in intellectual and moral training, and, of course, insisted on his children attending the public school, the Sabbath school and church services.
The services at the grave were under the auspices of the A.O.U.W., of which order Mr. Steinberg was a member.
From some Laclede County Histories:
The first Hundred years, 1849-1949, Francis Gleason: p42: D. Steinberg, representative of L. Steinberger & Co., of St. Louis, arrived in the Spring of '69 with his wife and two children, Albert and Ada. This first store was advertised in the Clipper of July 4, 1869 as "A new store, new goods and plenty of them now being opened by L. Steinberger & Co, north east side of the public square. Their stock consists principally of groceries, clothing, dry goods, boots, shoes, hats, caps, hardware, queensware, saddlery and such goods usually found in a country store. These goods were purchased for cash and in the best manufactories of the east and will be sold as low as any house west of St. Louis. All kinds of farmers produce taken in exchange for merchandise at the highest market price." This advertisement sheds considerable light on what was expected of a country store at that time. The Steinberg family of eight children grew to maturity in Lebanon and figured prominently in school, church an community activities. Albert was for years associated with his father in business, in later years conducting his own clothing store, with a younger brother, David, associated with him; Ada was a partner in a dressmaking and millinery store of Young and Steinberg. Leo was a clerk in the Farrar drug store and in later years successful pharmacist in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Myrtle became Mrs. Leornard Morris and now resides in California. Roy lives in Kansas City. Everett died in the 1920's. [wrong - bjg] All the children became members of the Methodist Church of which the mother was a devoted member. Of all this large, popular family David alone remains in Lebanon, to recall the Steinberg name.
p 95: Their [Young family] coming added another business to Commercial Street. Mrs. Young and Ada Steinberg, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. Steinberg, conducted a millinery and dressmaking shop on Commercial Street where the shop of Misses Bryan and Windsor had been in the '80's. With Mrs. Young came her mother, Mrs. Church, an elderly gentlewoman of the old time, refined type......
History of Laclede Co, 1820-1926, Leo Nyberg, Mo Ref 977-8815, pg 164: STEINBERG'S, THE HOUSE OF QUALITY, A. E. Steinberg began in the merchandise business with Wallace Brothers and has literally grown up in the business. He was with that firm for ten years and later was connected with Clark Brothers for nineteen years, thus having had a great deal of business experience before setting up for himself in 1910. Mr. Steinberg's father was one of Lebanon's pioneer business men, having been in business in Old Town before the coming of the railroad and later in the new town after the town had moved to the Railroad Addition as it was then called.
Steinberg's opened for business in the present location just sixteen years ago and continued until March, 1926, when Mr. Steinberg was forced to close out his business because of ill health. After spending the spring and summer recuperating Mr. Steinberg returned and has again opened his business in the old location with a complete new stock of goods. He formally opened his new business on Saturday, August 14. As before he carries a complete line of men's and boys' clothing, furnishings and hats. His excellent location, together with the outstanding quality of all his furnishings make his business one of the best in Lebanon and one that every citizen of the count should justly be proud of seeing in business again.
