James Ray Samuel

James Ray Samuel was born March 21, 1861, in Jefferson City, Missouri.  He spent his boyhood in Calloway County, however, attending the district school, and in 1880 entered Chaddock College at Quincy, Ill., where he remained a couple of years.

     After coming out of college, he entered the mercantile business.  In 1889, he was appointed to the position of chief clerk in the street department of the City Hall, where his efficiency was such as to earn his retention until 1895.  In that year he was offered a deputyship in the County Clerk's office and accepted it, which place he still holds.

     Mr. Samuel has attended to business in the County Clerk's office with such fidelity and with so much courtesy to the public, that he has become one of the most popular officials at the Court House.  He will in all probability be the next County Clerk of Jackson County.

     Mr. Samuel married Miss May Small, daughter of Dr. Andrew V. Small, surgeon in the confederate army, in Sedalia, in 1902.
