Searchers Find Body Of Missing Noel Resident
The body of a 68-year old Noel man, Harry Barnby, who had been gone from his home since September 6, was found at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday in a deep hollow 1 miles from his home.
The body was found by Pete Harmon of Noel, one of about 25 or 30 searchers who were called out at 4:30 p.m. yesterday when it was determined Mr. Barnby was missing. Conservation agents Dick Lassiter and Onal Edmonds drove a jeep to the edge of the hollow and removed the body.
A clock that Mr. Barnby often took with him to the woods for lack of a watch was found half way down the hillside above the body, and a .410 gauge shotgun was found with the body, indicating that Mr. Barnby had gone hunting and had fallen down the hill, according to County Coroner R.M. Humphrey, who investigated along with Pineville Marshal Floyd Fine.
Mr. Barnby had lived in Noel for many years, but recently was suffering from a heart condition and stuck close to home, rarely coming to town.
A neighbor, John Porter, brought his mail to him, but had assumed Mr. Barnby had taken a trip. When the mail began to pile up, however, and Mr. Barnby's pension check had not been picked up and cashed, the neighbor became suspicious and yesterday called Mr. Barnby's daughter, Mrs. Robert Mueller of Joplin.
She and her husband drove to Noel yesterday and notified Mr. Fine, who set off the search. She identified the body by the clothes Mr. Barnby was wearing.
Surviving, in addition to his daughter, Mrs. Mueller, are his widow, Mrs. Margaret Barnby of Joplin; two other daughters, Mrs. James Shultz of Humboldt, Kan.,and Mrs. Tony Bell of Coffeyville, Kan.; two sons, John Barnby of Winkelman, Ariz., and James Barnby of Joplin, and 22 grandchildren.
Catholic graveside rites will be held at 4:30 p.m. today in Noel Cemetery. Burial will be under the direction of Humphrey and Son Funeral Home.
