                  Dies Here After
                  Lengthy Illness.
      Former Manufacturer Will Be Buried Monday in
         Pleasant Hill.

Arthur Norman Maltby, 74 years old, 4130 Walnut Street, former president and general manager of the Central Manufacturing Company, died today in St. Luke's Hospital, where he had been ill several weeks.

Funeral services will be held at 1 o'clock Monday afternoon in the J.F. O'Donnell funeral home, 3742 Main Street. Burial will be in Pleasant Hill. Members of the Sons of the American Revolution will be pall-bearers.

Mr. Maltby was born March 7, 1854 in Verona, N.Y. He came to Missouri with his parents and lived on a farm near Clinton, Mo., until 1868, when he went to Sedalia to receive his education.

In that city he later helped organize the S.H. Beiler Wholesale Grocery Co., and remained with the firm twenty years as secretary and treasurer.

In 1901 Mr. Maltby moved to Kansas City and became associated with the Central Manufacturing Company. Later he was with the C.L. Simpson Realty Co.

As a student of genealogy Mr. Maltby has compiled several family histories, among which was the genealogy of the Atherton family, for Mr. W.H. Atherton, Honolulu.

He was a member of the board of the Missouri Valley Historical Society; a member of the Society of Colonial Wars of Missouri; Sons of the Revolution and Protestant Episcopal Church.

Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Louise H. McNellis; two-grand-children, Maurice Maltby McNellis and Louise Maltby McNellis; two sisters, Mrs. W.T. Thornton, Tulsa, widow of former Gov. W.T. Thornton, New Mexico, and Mrs. Mary Victory, Havana, Cuba."

  (Mr. Maltby's picture is printed in the above.)

Dec. 1952, his niece, Gladys Powell, Clinton, N.Y., wrote the compiler: "Sir Paul Maltby's picture in November "Life" looks just like uncle Arthur."

This is Air Vice-Marshall Sir Paul Maltby who descends from the Maltbys of North Allerton, Yorkshire. At one time he was the youngest Captain in the British Air Force.

Mr. Arthur N. Maltby was a member of the Maltby Association and keenly interested. Before me is a typed MS. of 40 pages compiled by him, which includes his descent from the families of Axtell, Barsham, Barstow, Barron, Bass, Belcher, Blake, Brigham, Clark, Coolidge, Corbin, Cox, Dunster, Greenaway, Lee, Maltby, Manning, Miller, Moss, Munning, Pope, Pratt, Ranney, Rouse, Russell, Sawin, Sessions, Spofford, Stevens, Stone, Wales, Ward, Wheelock, Willard, Winship, Wright.

                  "Mrs. A.N. Maltby Dies.
The Clubwoman Was Widely Known as a Genealogist."

"Mrs. Arthur N. Maltby, a genealogist who was widely known for her work in connection with patriotic organizations died yesterday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Maurice McNellis, 5346 Troost Avenue. She was 80 years old.

Mrs. Maltby had been in ill health since last summer. Prior to that time she had been active in several organizations. She served as a member of the national committee and as state chairman of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Memberships in other organizations included the D.A.R. Missouri State Officers club; the Colonial Dames of America, the United States Daughters of 1812; the Daughters of the American Colonists; the Order of the First Crusade (1096 A.D.); Bohemond chapter; Order of the First Families of Virginia; United Daughters of the Confederacy; Missouri Valley Hist. Society; and the Clan Magregor. She had been state librarian for the United Daughters of 1812.

Born in St. Louis Mrs. Maltby, as Amelia Humphreys was reared and educated at Jefferson City. After her marriage to Mr. Maltby, a native of New York, they moved to Kansas City in 1891. Through her connection with patriotic organizations she became interested in genealogy, and as the years passed, her home took on the appearance of a genealogical library.

Her husband, too, became interested in her work and joined her in the task of tracing families and establishing lineage. She had clients from all parts of the nation. Her daughter, Mrs. McNellis, aided her in the work, after studying heraldry at Columbia University. Besides her daughter Mrs. Maltby is survived by two sister, Mrs. Louis H. Powell, Sedalia, Mrs. Janet L. Batterton, Seattle, and three grandchildren. Mr. Maltby died ten years age...." She d. Jan.1, 1938.

N.B. It may be stated here that I know of no records the compiler did not already have that were contributed by Mr. or Mrs. Maltby. Records of their family--or rather their branch, were furnished by Mrs. John P. Victory.

Ancestors of Mrs. Maltby as sent by her husband are: Archer, Batt, Brice, Burwell, Goode, Henderson, Humphreys, Hylton, Johns, Jones, Keyes, Lewis, MacKerness, North, Perry, Rambo, Rowland, Ward, Wood.
