    Notes 
    • --- George H. Munday - It is a mooted question as to which is really the better, a large farm of hundreds of acres, requiring a great deal of help and much work and worry upon the part of the owner, or the small, well improved farm which can, if necessary, be cultivated by the owner himself, without aid other than modern farm machinery. We are inclined to the belief that the agriculturist who owns the small or moderately sized farm during this present era of decided scarcity of labor of all kinds is in a much better position than the large land owner, dependent upon high priced farm labor. The Munday farm of seventy-five acres in Windsor township is an ideal farm as regards size, location and improvements. The family of George H. Munday, the owner, have all the comforts of the city home right on the farm. The Munday home is a beautiful, modern residence equipped with an electric lighting system and every convenience for making farm life really enjoyable.
      George H. Munday was born in Deer Creek township, Henry County, nine miles northeast of Clinton, January 9, 1870. He is the son of Benjamin F. and Mary (East) Munday, who were parents of seven children. Benjamin F. Munday was born in Hendricks County, Indiana, in April, 1843. He came to Henry County, Missouri, in 1866 and after a period of residence on his wife's farm he purchased a place of his own which he cultivated until his retirement to a home in Calhoun in 1912. Mr. Munday was married January 12, 1869, to Mary East, who bore him seven children, namely: George H., subject of this sketch; Lizzie, deceased; L. S., a farmer in Deer Creek township; Emma, wife of H. DesCombes, Smithton, Missouri; Frank, living on the old home place in Deer Creek township; James C., living in Springfield township; A. B., living near Alberta, Henry County, Missouri. The mother of these children was born in Henry County, Missouri, the daughter of George and Mary (Goff) East, who were pioneer settlers of Henry County.
      George H. Munday was reared on the home farm in Deer Creek township and after receiving such education as was afforded by the district school of his neighborhood he pursued a higher course in Professor Lamkin's Academy, where he was a schoolmate of Uel W. Lamkin, editor of this work. Soon after attaining his majority he began doing for himself and remained at home until his marriage in 1898. In 1900 he purchased his present home place of seventy-five acres in Windsor township and moved there in January, 1901. This is one of the best improved places in Henry County.
      October 6, 1897, George H. Munday and Miss Iva L. Garrett were united in marriage. One child has blessed this marriage: Lewis G. Munday, born August 3, 1903. Mrs. Iva L. (Garrett) Munday was born in Johnson County, Missouri, the daughter of W. A. and Alice (Walker) Garrett, the former of whom was born in Johnson County, Missouri, and the latter of whom was a native of North Carolina. William A. Garrett, her father, was born October 11, 1848, and is now residing on the farm which was settled by the Garretts in Johnson County in 1843. His wife, Alice (Walker) Garrett, was born December 10, 1851, and departed this life January 14, 1913. There were six children in the Garrett family, as follow: Mrs. Iva L. Munday; Mrs. Mary Edna Powell, Johnson County; Daisy Cornelia, at home; Mrs. Linnie Adria Kavanaugh, Kansas City; Robert Lewis, at home, and Mrs. Nellie Washington Reynolds, Johnson County. The great-grandfather of William A. Garrett, named Thomas Simms, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, the ancestry having been traced so that Mrs. Munday could become a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Mr. Munday is a Democrat. Both Mr. and Mrs. Munday are intelligent, well read people who keep abreast of the times and are progressive in their views. They have many warm and steadfast friends throughout their home community.
