    2012oct from Tommy Lee Childers of Oregon - user633879 (at) :
    Grover Childers

    In 1912 Grover Childers arrived in Kansas City, equipped with a college
    education but no money. Three years later he was graduated from the Kansas City
    School of Law and entered upon the practice of his profession. He now has a
    large clientele of the younger business men of the city, who place confidence
    in his business judgment and his legal knowledge, his attention being given
    mostly to office practice. The progress that he has made indicates clearly the
    wise use he has made of his time, talents and opportunities.

    Mr. Childers is a native son of Missouri, his birth having occurred near La
    Grange, in Lewis county, October 8, 1886, his parents being George W. and Emma
    (Woodcock) Childers, both of whom were natives of Quincy, Illinois, and came to
    Missouri in early life, settling in Lewis county, where George W. Childers took
    up the occupation of farming and stock raising, which he followed for many

    Grover Childers spent his youthful days in the usual manner of the farm bred
    boy. He acquired his early education in the public schools and in the La Grange
    high school, while later he attended the La Grange College and won his Bachelor
    of Arts degree in 1907. He afterward taught school in Clark and Marion counties
    for a period of four years and in 1912 he came to Kansas City, where he entered
    the Kansas City School of Law. He was at that time the possessor of five
    dollars and a large fund of determination and laudable ambition. He worked his
    way through school and when he had graduated he had accumulated without outside
    assistance over a thousand dollars. He then entered upon the active practice of
    law and has gained a good clientage among the younger business men of the city,
    who recognize the soundness of his judgment in business affairs as well as the
    comprehensiveness of, his legal knowledge. His business discernment is shown in
    the success which has attended the investments that he has personally made.

    In 1917 Mr. Childers was married to Miss Alice J. Cahill, of Warrensburg,
    Missouri, and they occupy an enviable social position, having many warm friends
    in Kansas City and enjoying the hospitality of many of the best homes.
    Fraternally Mr. Childers is a Mason, belonging to the lodge, chapter,
    commandery and Mystic Shrine, also to the Eastern Star and to the Modern
    Woodmen of America. When the country entered the World war he enlisted as a
    private and from the 10th of December, 1917, until January 9, 1919, was in the
    army. He went first to Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, and was warranted first
    sergeant in the Ordnance Corps within sixty days after his enlistment. He was
    later placed in charge of the personnel records at Raritan arsenal and served
    in that capacity until discharged, refusing further promotion leading to a
    commission. He was with the army altogether for thirteen months and then
    returned to his home to resume the private practice of law and to take up again
    his activities along other lines. He is the prelate of the Knights of Pythias
    Lodge No. 1 and while residing in Lewis county, Missouri, served as district
    deputy of the Modern Woodmen. He is now keenly interested in the state movement
    for the abolishment of the public service commission. He was the organizer of
    the State League for the Repeal of the Public Service Commission Act, which now
    has a membership of twenty-seven thousand, and he is president thereof, being
    known throughout the state for his work in this connection. He belongs to the
    Baptist church and he is interested in all those forces which make for the
    benefit of the community. He is particularly a lover of justice and does not
    hesitate to criticise injustice under whatever guise it is found.

    The lady named Lillie Riney in the records below was very diligent visiting
