  • Notes 

    • Attended William Jewell College in Missouri, but did not finish as he went into the family businesses. He owned several businesses of his own over his life span, including a bakery in Moberly. He was also Moberly City Clerk for awhile. He was a stockbroker at the time of the 1929 crash and lost everything he had in savings (over $50,000). As he was age 57 at the time, he never recovered financially, but seemed to take this philosophically. His son, John, was attending Yale at the time of the crash, and had to get out and work to put himself through the rest of his PhD. degree by pounding rails for the railroad. During WWII, Lloyd went back to work to aid the war effort as a machinist in a factory. He had learned this trade in his father's machine shop and haystacker factory. He was past 70, and the other men called him "Pop". He looked like a Dutchman, with his white mustache, stocky build, and pipe that drooped down from his mouth. He had a great sense of humor. He worked so well at the factory that the other men complained that he was making them look bad by turning out more items than they were. His supervisor told him to go ahead and make as many as he wanted, and he would set some aside for a rainy day (which never came) on a separate set of books, keeping everyone happy. Lloyd never knew how to do less than his best on any job. He was fiercely independent and lived by himself until about 6 months before his death, just short of his 95th birthday, in the same house his children were born in, doing his own cooking, etc. He had a sharp, clear mind to the last, helping much in this genealogy. He didn't last long when put in a nursing home, which he dreaded. (Wayland)
