 Includes NotesNotes for Permelia Lee Jameson:
In an effort to join with their husbands after the Civil War, Permelia, with 4 groups of women and children, traveled across country in wagons and yokes of oxen. The first two bands of robbers took their clothing, food and supplies, even their shoes. The last terrible robbery was at Bear Springs in Boon Co, AR. A gang of men jumped out, took all but one wagon and oxen, even took Susan Moris' smoking tobacco. They loaded everything onto the one wagon, and the women walked to Springfield, Mo. The Ruffs stayed in the Joplin area until 1868, three years after the Civil War, when they returned home to Searcy Co.

Permelia divorced her third husband so she could get her pension back from Davy Crockett Ruff. She lived her last days with Isaac Marion Ruff, her youngest son.
