Joseph Wesley "West" Wes" Park (1850-1935)

"Joseph W. Park, blacksmith and wood workman at Corso, Mo., is a son of Josiah W. and Barbara (Ingram) Park, who were early settlers of Lincoln County. The father was a farmer and chair maker, and both he and his wife were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He was a Whig and died in the prime of life. The mother was born in Logan County, Ky., and immigrated to Missouri when quite small. She became a widow at the age of forty-six years, and was left in very moderate circumstances, but the husband, in his wisdom, bequeathed to her the little homestead, and by judicious management and indomitable perseverance on her part, she brought her children up to manhood and womanhood and won for herself the admiration of all who knew her. She lived to a good old age. Their family consisted of ten children, six sons and four daughters. Their fifth son, Joseph W., was reared on the home farm and educated in the common schools. At the age of eighteen he began working for himself, and in 1872 was married to Sarah E. Abbott, a native of Ohio, and by her became the father of two children, Minnie B. and Sadie G. In 1876 Mr. Park began working at the carpenter's trade, which he continued some four years, and at the end of that time began working at the blacksmith's trade and has continued the same up to the present time. By close application to business (unaided by a tutor) and fair dealing with the public, he has become a good workman, and has the good will of all that known him. He has a good shop and a profitable business, and is the owner of forty-three acres of land. He supports the principals (sic) of the Republican party, and is a member of the A. O. U. W. He and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
