  • Notes 
    • "Wm. Burnston Means left his plantation hear Knoxville, Tenn., in charge of a son, Wm. Burnston II, and came to Missouri, never to return. He was accompanied by his son, Fielding Wilhite Means, and settled at Clinton in the early 1800's."
      "Wm. B. Means was a pioneer of Clinton as well as of Henry County. He was granted an extensive tract of land from the U.S. Government early in the 1800's, part of which was later to become a large part of the town of Clinton. The old Means residence was located on the corner of the block just south of the T.O. Smith home now occupied by Miss Ella Smith. Mr. Means and his family once owned and operated a tavern here for the accommodation of travelers in stage coaches. (by Mrs. Robert L. Moree, Jr.)"
    • Lived at the corner of Mill and Main streets in Clinton, MO. Friends raised money so that he could be buried beside his wife.
