***A widowed Elizabeth Anderson and her family. This family came from Scott County, Missouri. Elizabeth's father there was John Hale. He may or may not have been related to the Hales of Pope Co., Ark.

***Some of the Hales were central characters in the Pope Co., Militia War of the 1870s. When the baby Ida above was just old enough to sit up on the cabin floor, an altercation in the cabin door with a group of militia -- or sheriff's deputies -- left her father Nathaniel W. Anderson shot and dying. He was not the target, but was caught in the crossfire with a man they were seeking -- perhaps a Hale.

***The Anderson family soon moved across the river to Centerville in Yell County. A son not in the census above, George W. Anderson, born about 1848, had a blacksmith shop there. Newton Anderson moved to Conway County. John Anderson and Charlie Anderson ended up in Lincoln Co. Ida Anderson married J. P. Webb in Yell Co. They nomesteaded in Perry Co. She later moved with her family to Lincoln Co.

***Ida Anderson Webb was my mother's mother.
