Obituary  Jefferson Democrat 1917
Asa Prior Booth, son of Joel P. and Phebe M. Booth, was born March 6th, 1855, in Berlin Center, Ohio; died at the old homestead, near Hillsboro, November 4th, 1917, aged sixty-two years, seven months and twenty eight days. In his early life for a number of years he taught school in Jefferson County. After this he took a medical course in the Ann Arbor Medical School, Ann Arbor Michigan. He graduated in 1884. Although he was a graduate of one of the very best medical schools and was intellectually and every other way highly qualified for the profession, he never practiced medicine, but took up farming dairying, and the mercantile business. His mercantile life was spent at Hematite in partnership with Judge Rome Byrd. The last years of his life he lived with his niece, Hilda Booth, daughter of Joel C. Booth at her home at Buckeye, Missouri. He came to this county with his parents about 45 years ago. He has two brothers, Charles S. and Joel C. both of whom have preceeded him. His only sister, Mrs. Medora Honey survives him. Besides these near relatives he has two nephews, Charles W. Booth and Joel F. Honey, and three nieces, Hilda, Zoe and Medora Booth. 


No one has been a more important factor in the upbuilding of the county; he has been identified with almost every undertaking, and has always stood for the best interest. His life was commendable in every moral and social respect. His was a pure mind and his unfailing fidelity to his friends will cause many to gratefully cherish his memory. A vast host join the near members of the family in mourning their irreparable loss. His funeral was conducted by Rev. T. S. Mattews, pastor of the Presbyterian church, DeSoto, Mo. The services were in the old homestead, the present home of his sister, Mrs. Medora Honey, and his remains were taken to the Hillsboro cemetery and laid away to rest, November 6th, 1917.
