Birth: May 2, 1832
Grainger County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Nov. 29, 1914
Holt County
Missouri, USA


Death has again entered the circle of old residents of this county and removed John K. Greenlee, a man well known and respected, and possibly one of the oldest residents of the county. John K.Greenlee was born on May 2, 1833 and died at the home of his son Pleasant at Forbes, Holt County, Missouri, Nov 29, 1914, aged 81 years, 4 months and 29 days. As a young man, Mr. Greenlee taught school over the county and a large number of the middle aged people about here received their first instruction from him. He was fond of telling of the many hardships of the pioneer and as a storyteller had few equals. Mr. Greenlee was married early in life, his wife having preceded him to the grave. Nine children are living, all being present at the funeral but two. There are three daughter: Mrs Nancy Calkins, Arkansas City, Kansas, Mrs. Elvira Linkenfelter, Kansas and Mrs. Louisa Martin of Montana; six sons: George, Oakland, Iowa; Pleasant and Eli, Forbes, Missouri, Will, Nebraskas City; Henry, Pacific Junction [Iowa] and Luther of this place. The remains arrived from Forbes Monday and the funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Tuesday at 11 o'clock by his pastor, Rev A.W. Tandy, interment being made in the Mt. Olive Cemetery.
