Her stay on earth was short but during that time her loving heart so attracted her dear parents, brothers, and sisters that it was a great struggle for them to say goodbye. But He who took little children in His arms and blessed them has taken this little one to Himself - where she can never enter and where her teacher is perfect. The Good Shepherd has carried the little lamb across the river that the parents and loved ones may follow. Her remains were followed to the Horner Church by relatives and friends where her funeral was preached and the body buried in the cemetery. May the family be reunited in heaven. E. W. McCracken.

TN
May 12, 1936
Cassville,
Barry Co., MO
Research Note: Photo of stone at findagrave.com. Death Certificate says she was the daughter of Levi Hefley and Isabell Criner. According to 1850 Census, her mother was named Caroline. It also gives her birth year as 1834 and 102 years old when she died. R. L. Thomas was her husband when she died. B. B. Hefley of Cassville, MO was the informant. - Miancer Lewis married Louisa Hefley on Feb. 2, 1857 in Barry Co., MO. Samuel Rudd, age 56, married Lou Lewis, age 54, on Nov. 26, 1896 in Barry Co., MO. Lou Rudd married Robert L. Thomas on Apr. 30, 1910 in Barry Co., MO. - Cassville Republican May 14, 1936 - Lou Hefley Thomas, widow of the late Robert Thomas, of the community south of Cassville. Passed away Monday night at the Henson home two miles southeast of Cassville where she had been living for the past few months, Mrs. Thomas is believed to have been the oldest citizen of this county at the time of her death. Her brother, B. B. Hefley, says he cannot be certain about his sister's age but that she was not far from 100 years old. Mr. Hefly remembers that his sister had said that she was a young married women at the time she and her young husband started across the Plains to the Pacific Coast and joined the train of immigrants which were attacked in what is known in history as The Mountain Meadow Massacre. This occurred in 1854, or 82 years ago. Mr. Hefley believes that his sister married at the age of sixteen, and if they undertook their trip West that year it would make her 98 years old, at the least calculation. Her first husband lost his life in the Mountain Meadow Massacre. "Aunt Lou", as she was generally known, was one of the few who escaped that horrible tragedy with their lives. She was one of the pioneers of the Pasley community south of Cassville, and had lived there the greater part of her life. - This story was in "A Horner Legacy" by Fredalene Cooper Horner, Litho Printers, Cassville, MO. 1988. Lou was seventeen at the time and newly married. Her husband is identified as Samuel Rudd, but is incorrect, since she married Samuel Rudd on Nov. 26, 1896. It is mentioned that she was married 4 times. Must be a first husband. - This true story was told by Lou Rudd to Eva Smith League in 1933 and was published in "Reader's Digest". "A group of wagons from the Cassville, MO area gathered at the Horner Spring on the Isaac Horner farm, and from there they traveled to Fort Leavenworth, KS where they had arranged to meet and to take off to what was then the dangerous country of CA. Whole families were in the caravan which traveled in covered wagons. The incident of that terrible massacre of white men, women, and children and even tiny babies is of course recorded in all recent histories of the United States. Lou Rudd, age 16, and her husband, Samuel Rudd (not Samuel) were in that company and her young husband was killed. The wagons from Cassville, MO arrived in Fort Leavenworth, KS where they had all arranged to meet, being fifty wagons in all. There were several individuals riding on horses or mules with blankets and clothes in great rolls tied behind the saddles. The Army post from which they started had been stationed to protect new white settlers coming in from other states from the hostile Indians. After leaving the Army post and the prairie lands of KS, for much of the way had no wagon roads at all. Therefore, roads had to be cleared through big timber and in some places jungles. The heavy wagons were drawn by horse teams, mule teams and some oxen. At evening time, the caravan would make camp close to a spring or stream of water. The wagons were drawn into a circle and after the teams were unhitched the wagons were pushed up as close as possible to another. This was done as a measure of greater protection if Indians were on the war path. Aunt Lou, as she was later called, couldn't remember to tell accurately exactly where the attack took place. Many guards were kept watching every night, but one night suddenly they were all awakened by the awful war whoop and savage yells of a great many Indians. The whites were all armed, but helpless as the Indians shot arrows from the darkness from every direction. Aunt Lou and four other women and a little boy found a place to slip through; this they did barefooted as they were still in their sleeping garments, but the little boy had grabbed his bow and arrows. The five women and the little boy ran a great way in the dark and hid all night in the bushes until the time finally came when the awful yells of the Indians ceased. They remained hidden until sunrise and in the dawn Aunt Lou and one of the women ventured back into the now utterly silent camp where there was not a sign of life. They watched and waited and at last all of them went into the camp. Everyone of the whites were dead and nearly all had been scalped. Every animal was gone and every bite of food and the bedding and everything was gone. All that remained was the cold, silent faces of the dead everywhere they looked. Aunt Lou cradled in her arms the dead body of her young husband. Grief stricken and heavy hearted but bravely facing the challenge, the little band of women and the boy, barefooted and without a bite of food, with only a bow and arrows for a weapon, started on the long journey to return to the place in KS where the caravan had started. They traveled only at night trying to keep on the trail they had used coming in. The boy shot a small elk and the survivors had meat. They knew some roots that were all right to chew and bark of slippery elm and a few others were safe to chew and swallow the juice. They trudged on, hiding by day and walking by night. Aunt Lou said that sometimes they would give up hope of ever reaching home and were so hungry that hunger would force them out into the day time when the boy would kill a rabbit and they would again have meat. Finally at long last, the day came when these five women and the young boy wearily reached Fort Leavenworth. They were cared for and received medical aid and given clothes and shoes. Aunt Lou's father lived about four miles south of Cassville, MO was notified immediately that his little daughter was there. So Levi Hefley hurriedly hitched a team to a farm wagon and rushed to Fort Leavenworth, and brought his little girl home. She was 17 at the time, in the winter or late fall of 1848. She was 102 years old when she died in 1936 and is buried in the Horner Cemetery just one quarter mile NW of where the wagon train gathered so many long years before. She was preceded in death by four husbands, the last being Bob Thomas, Sr. who has many descendants in this locality. Aunt Lou never had any children." Census

Research Note: Cassville Democrat, April 13, 1907 - Thomas Saunders, age 19 years, died Friday, April 12, 1907, at the home of his cousins, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Henbest, about 2 miles east of town of pneumonia. His brother John arrived a short time before he died from Weeleetka, I. T. and James, another brother, arrived in time for the funeral. Thomas came from Weketka [two different spellings] I. T. to attend school in this city and took sick on the 6th, and died the 12th. Everything that relatives could do to restore him to health was done, but without avail Tom's spirit returned to Him who gave it. The remains were laid to rest in the Horner Cemetery, Saturday. He was a son of the late Monroe Saunders a former well known citizen of Golden, and a nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Ledgerwood of near Shell Knob. The relatives request us to return their heartfelt thanks to their neighbors and friends for their very kind assistance during his sickness. - Carole Martin Ring's Note: He was a son of the late Monroe Saunders, age 19. I finally his obit in your newspapers online. I have looked for years to find out what happened to Thomas A. Saunders. The only time I found him was on the 1900 census in Mena, Polk Co., Arkansas. By the time the rest of the family got to Oklahoma the Saunders name was being spelled as Sanders. Thomas A Sanders was born in May 1888 to William Monroe Sanders and Mary J. Moles. Mary Jane Moles and William Monroe Sa(u)nders were my great great grandparents. Mary and Matilda Ledgerwood and Paschal "Weep" Moles were siblings. William M. Sanders is buried (April 18 1900) in Polk Co., AR in the Owen Chapel Cemetery in Acorn, Polk Co., AR, as is Paschal A. "Weep" Moles who was killed in Wetumka, I.T. (OK). Everyone knows the story about how Weep Moles was killed by gunshot. The Bill Sanders who is mentioned in a couple of articles I have found over the years was the older brother of Thomas Sa(u)nders and the son of Mary J. Moles and William Monroe Saunders. Online Obit

She professed her faith in Christ when young and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and lived in that faith until her death. She had been afflicted for about seventeen years and could not attend church as she would have liked to do. She leaves three brothers and one sister and one son to mourn her death. Their loss is her gain. She died of heart trouble and dropsy and bore her affliction with patience and was ready to go. She was living at her son's and all was done that loving hands could do but Jesus said, it is enough, come up higher, where there is no more sickness nor goodbyes. Rev. J. W. Ennes conducted the funeral services at the house and we laid her to rest in the Oak Hill Cemetery to await the resurrection morn. Online Newspapers
