Here are the obituraries, I thought I'd start there first...
I received these from the Southwest Regional Library in Boliver, MO. While our family was on a trip to Missouri, We visited several familiy sites, such as the Hopewell Cemetary. I had info. that in 1974, members of the Historical Society of Polk Co., MO had started recording the data of all the graves in Polk Co. They used this library as their headquarters.
We briefly went to the library and I signed my name in their register. Under the surnames, Kinslow and Huckaby.
I also left a request to have them send me the obituaries of Page Kinlsow, his parents and wives. These are the ones I received, though I have to apologize, the name of the newspaper(s) are not included.
there are two for Page,

PAGE C. KINSLOW
Page C. Kinslow was born in Barren County, Kentucky, July 31,1838. Died at his home in Bolivar, Missouri, April 6, 1926, aged 87 years, 8 months and 6 days.
He was a soldier in the Civil War, enlisted in Co. A, 37th Ky, Reg; served one year, and was dicharged at Louisville, Ky.
He was married in early manhood to Mary V. Harrison, May, 1857, at Lafayette, Tenn. She died March 4, 1874. To this union were born two children, one dying in infancy. He was married to Martha Huckaby in September, 1877, and she died in June, 1808. To this union were born ten children, only four of whom are living. He was again married to Mrs. Eliza S. Luttrell, April 26, 1901, and she died September 12, 1924. To this union were born two children, one dying in infancy.
He was converted and joined the Oak Grove church about 25 years ago and remained a member of that church until about 5 years ago, when he moved his membership to the First Baptist Church of Bolivar, where it remained until his death. He spoke many times of being ready to go when the Lord called on him, but he dreaded the suffering, but he was always cheerful through it all.
He was a kind and loving father. He had many sorrows, but he always wanted to be pleasant and jolly. He had a smile for everybody.
"Uncle Page," as most people knew him, had lived most of his life in Polk County. He came here from Kentucky just after the Cival War and continued to reside here since that time. He had many friends. His heart went out to all old soldiers. He often spoke of the old boys and was always glad to see them.
He was the father of fourteen children. Those living are J.C. Kinslow, Walnut Grove, Mo; Tom Kinslow, LaJunta, Colo.; Joe Kinslow, Urbana, Mo.; W.H. Kinslow, Adonis, Mo.; Mrs. Edna Ballenger, Bolivar, Mo.; with whom he lived at the time of his death; also three step children, Mrs. Irene McKneelen, Kansas City, Mo.; Mrs. Dora Buckner, Polk, Mo.; and Mrs. Mary Kuhlman, Bolivar, Mo.; 21 grandchildren and 13 great grandcildren survive him.
Oh, Papa, we miss you!
Your voice we often think we here.
And there is your cane-your pipe,
And there is your vacant chair.
Oh yes, you have gone and left us
on this earth alone-
You've gone gone from this world of sorrow and sadness
To God to make your home.
Oh, Papa from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
There's a vacant place in our hearts
That never can be filled.
This obituary is of Sarah Agnes Panye, Page's mother:
An Aged Lady Gone
Agnes Payne was born in Kentucky, January 20, 1821. She was one of sixteen children, all of whom lived to be grown. In the Autumn of 1837, she married Joseph Kinslow, by whom she had two children. Mr. Kinslow died in the Spring of 1840, and in 1842 she married Joseph Huckaby. In the early '60's Mr. and Mrs. Huckaby moved to Missouri and settled in the northeastern part of Polk County. To this marriage were born fifteen children, and at the time of her death near Sentinel, Mo., August 7, 1911, "Aunt Agnes" as she was familiarly called, left living eleven children, seventy-eight grand children, one hundred one great-grand-children, and four great-great-grand-children.
In her Seventeenth year she professed faith in Christ, and for many years to her death was a member of Hopewell Baptist church in this county. The funeral was conducted by B.F. Chamberlin, of Polk, and burial in the Hopewell cemetary.
For thirty years past before her death she had been blind. Joseph Huckaby was a soldier of the War of 1812, and "Aunt Agnes" was one of the last three pensioners of that war. Mr. Huckaby was in the ever-memorable battle of New Orleans, and fought Sunday, January 8, 1815. in this battle, which was commenced at daylight and lasted until 9 o'clock at night, the British lost more than twenty-five hundred men, including Pakenham, their leader, while the official report of Gen Andrew Jackson showed the American loss to be "only seven killed and six wounded."
Hope this will be of value to the many researching this family. I also have the obituary to Page's third wife, Eliza.
