moved around California, but Noritta finished high school in Fresno and
then graduated from the Licensed Vocational Nursing program at Fresno

STEPHEN H. SCOBEE
(FARMER AND STOCK-RAISER)
Mr. Scobee was born in Monroe County, July 20, 1845, of Frances Wood, of
South Carolina, and Capt. Stephen Scobee, a native of Kentucky. The
latter served as captain of militia during the drill times. He moved to
Missouri when a young man, entered land and improved a farm in Monroe
County, where he lived until his death in November, 1876. He was one of
the earlier settlers of the county. Of the children who grew to
maturity, Stephen H. was the fourth son. He has always lived in Monroe
County and is now one of its model farmers. He owns 360 acres of land
with 260 in meadow pasture and plow land. His improvements are
first-class and his orchard is especially fine. During the war Mr.
Scobee served for about nine months in Col. Pinnell's regiment. He was
on duty in Louisiana and Texas but was in no engagements. Upon the
cessation of the hostilities he returned to his home and in January,
1866, married Miss Bessie Scobee, daughter of Robert and Dulcina
(Norman) Scobee, of Monroe County. After this important event he went to
work in earnest as a farmer, and has met with the brightest success.
Every opening vista of life has been but a fresh and fair surprise. He
enjoys the cordial respect and good will of all who know him. Mr. and
Mrs. Scobee have six living children: Cena J., Minnie L., Thomas, Katie
F., Sallie S., and Christy C. Two died in infancy, Robert, aged 18
months, and Mattie aged three months. Mr. and Mrs. Scobee are members of
the Missionary Baptist Church.
