Henry Clay McDougal

Henry Clay McDougal was born December 9, 1844, in Marion County, West Virginia.  His boyhood days were spent on a farm, and his education received in the district schools.  In 1861, at the outbreak of the civil war, he enlisted in the Sixth West Virginia, and served throughout the bloody conflict.  After the surrender at Appomattox he came out to Missouri, settling in Davies County.  He studied law in Gallatin, and was admitted to practice in 1868.

     He served two terms as Mayor of Gallatin, and was also Judge of the Probate and Chancery Court, the youngest in the history of the State, by the way.
     In 1885 he came to Kansas City, where he has lived ever since.

     Judge McDougal has served a term as City Counselor, and as a Republican has been conspicuously honored by Democratic governors.  He has been a member of the board of managers of the Asylum for the Feeble Minded and Epileptic, a member of the Missouri World's Fair Commission, and is now a member of the Board of Election Commissioners.  He has also served as president of the Missouri Bar Association, and is vice-president of the local Bar Association.  Outside of his profession he is president of the Gallinas Mining and Smelting Company of New Mexico.

     He married Miss Emma Chapdu, of Gallipolis, O., in 1869, and they have five children, only three of whom are living.
