Portrait and Biographical Record, Page 542
Stephen McCollum, an energetic and successful general agriculturist of Chariton County, Mo., was also an efficient member of the School Board, and, a native-born citizen of the county, has been his entire life intimately associated with the growth and local advancement of the best interests and numerous progressive enterprises of this portion of the State. Born in Chariton County, December 21, 1830, he is personally known to all the community of his home neighborhood, and is highly respected for his ability and upright character. His father, David McCollum, was born in Kentucky in the latter part of the last century, and, reared among the pioneer scenes of his native State, grew to manhood an enterprising and self-reliant citizen. He married Miss Elizabeth Sanlin, and with his wife came to the Territory of Missouri in 1819, and bought a farm located in the almost wilderness of the newly settled country.
For the land purchased by the father of our subject he paid the Government price of $1.25 per acre, entering the land as a homestead exemption. After a thirty-years residence he sold the old homestead for $12 per acre and purchased another farm. The Missouri homestead had been blessed with the presence of eleven bright and merry children. The sons and daughters who clustered about the family hearth, a happy band, were: William, the eldest-born, deceased; James C.; Sarah; Lewis; Nancy; Stacey; Elizabeth; Missouri, deceased; Stephen, our subject; Thomas B.; and John. The surviving children, with the exception of Stephen and John, are now all residents of California. Stephen McCollum was reared to habits of industry and thrift, and enjoyed the limited advantages for an education which the early days in Missouri afforded the farmer boys, who were frequently obliged to go miles to the little subscription schools, which were sparsely scattered throughout the State.
With his other brothers our subject was trained in the daily round of agricultural duties upon the home farm, and from his early childhood has continued in the same employment, farming being the business of his life. His valuable homestead of forty acres, pleasantly located upon section 3, township 55, range 17, is finely improved and brought up to a high state of cultivation, and annually yields excellent returns for the labor expended in the tilling of the soil. In the year 1850, Mr. McCollum was united in marriage with Miss Nancy E. Rice, born in Randolph County, Mo., in the year 1832. Of our subjectís children, David F. is the eldest-born; Missouri A. was the first daughter; then followed George W.; Elizabeth J.; John, deceased; Stephen B., his fatherís namesake; Luella, Susan, Alfred, Thomas, Giles and Emma. The family, almost an unbroken ......, are all residents of their native State and occupy positions of usefulness, enjoying the regard and confidence of their friends and neighbors. Mr. McCollum votes the Democratic ticket, but although deeply interested in local and national affairs has never aspired to political promotion. As a member of the School Board, he did excellent service in behalf of education. Our subject is a member of the Farmersí Alliance and an ardent advocate of progress and reform. During the Civil War he served eight months in the Confederate army under Col. Cercy, and actively participated in numerous engagements and skirmishes. With the exception of that troublous period of civil dissension, Mr. McCollum has devoted himself to the duties of agriculture, and has remained constantly within the boundaries of Chariton County, where he has ever been numbered among the most highly
respected of its pioneer citizens.
