A. E. Starkey. a pioneer of Missouri and an honored citizen of Slater, is undoubtedly the most venerable resident in his region of the country. Although his is nearly one hundred years of age, his mental vigor is unimpaired and his bodily health excellent He is still able to attend to dally duties and manage his business affairs and property. A most interesting conversationalist. he possesses a valuable store of historical reminiscence. His experiences of early days. and vivid remembrance of notable and distinguished characters he has seen, prominent among whom is Napoleon Bonaparte, are thoroughly appreciated by many eager listeners.

Born in the month of June. 1793, in Lohr. in the kingdom of Hanover, Germany, our subject will in a few months arrive at the centennial anniversary of his birth. His parents, Casper and Mary (Falk) Starkey were natives of Germany, where his father lived, and after years of patient toil, died. He is the youngest and only son in a family of four children. He was reared on a farm and trained to the habits of thrift, and gained a primary education in the schools of his Fatherland. Grown to a man's estate, he married, and in his native land began the support of a family of his own.

Mr. Starkey determined to try his fortune in America, and making the venture alone, sailed from Bremmen and safely landed in New Orleans, thence voyaged up the Mississippi River and located in Louisville. He found immediate employment working on the streets and never experienced any lack of work or money. As soon as he was sure of making a comfortable living for his family in the New World, he sent for them, and three years later rented land in Warren County, and successfully engaged in farming. After a time he purchased one hundred and sixty well improved acres of land, and there engaged in the general duties of agriculture. In 1870, Mr. Starkey went to West Glasgow, this county (Saline), where he bought two hundred acres of farming property, and devoted his attention to the cultivation of the soil for five years. In 1884. he removed to Marshall, and after a four year residence there, settled in Slater, where he invested in land and houses.

Mr. Starkey has been thrice married. His first wife, Gertrude (Hodhoh) was born in Germany and died in her native land. His second marriage occurred in Germany, and the first name of this lady was also Gertrude. She joined her husband in America and died soon after he settled in West Glasgow.
