John D. Maupin Family

In the 1900 Census the following people were living in this house below near DeSoto, Missouri: Chrisopher Campbell (48), Mary Campbell (45), Lulu Campbell (23), George Campbell (22), Grace Campbell (16), Fred Campbell (14), Pearl Campbell (11), Neva Campbell (9), Dimple Campbell(6), Minnie Campbell Maupin (28), John D. Maupin (31), Lolo M. Maupin (9), Ollie R. (Campbell) Maupin (8), Irene F. Maupin (5), May Maupin (3), Alesia Booker (80)--a boarder.

This was the home of John Dabney and Minnie (Campbell) Maupin before they left De Soto, Mo. to move to Texas. Minnie's parents, Christopher C. Campbell and wife Mary (Hurst) Campbell were living with them in De Soto, Mo. and moved to Teague, Texas with them and are also buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Teague, Freestone County, Texas.

John D. Maupin (my great-grandfather's brother) was a foreman of the roundhouse at the railroad in Texas just like his brother Henry Maupin was in De Soto. Their occupations are listed as machinists. As mentioned in the earlier blog, John D. had a ranch when my grandparents and aunt visited them in 1930, but he also served on the bank board.

J. D. Maupin passed away early Wednesday morning in Mexia at the age of 81.
Mr. Maupin will be remembered by the people of Teague as one of the old-timers,
having moved here when the city was still in its infancy, and has seen Teague in
it's good days and its less prosperous. Being of a congenial spirit, he numbered
among his friends all who came to know him. He was always ready to
contribute his time and efforts to the advancement of the city. Since early in life,
he was an active member of the Presbyterian Church.
He came to Teague in January of 1909 and was Superintendent of Motive
Powers with the T. & B V Railroad, and served in this capacity until his
retirement in June 1939, after 30 years of service.
He was born in St. Katherin, Mo., January 1, 1869 and at the age of 20,
he moved to De Soto, Mo. There he met and married Miss Minnie Campbell
and to this union was born four children, namely: Mrs. R. C. Castleberry of
Teague, Mrs. Lloyd Allen of Missouri, who survive him. A son Campbell
Maupin and a daughter, Mrs. M. M. Cain, preceded him in death. Mrs. Maupin
died in 1940. In August, 1945 he married Mrs. Virginia Means and has resided
in Mexia since that time.

Besides the above named children, he is survived by 8 grandchildren, 13
great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.

Funeral services were conducted from the Presbyterian Church Thursday
