" Looking Back at Rebecca Louisa [Woodall] Farmer's family background ."

    Rebecca Louisa [Woodall] Farmer was born in 1850 in Davidson Co. North Carolina .
Rebecca Louisa was the daughter of George Washington Woodall and Elizabeth Evaline [Smith] Woodall of Davidson County , North Carolina .
 
    Rebecca Louisa and her family came by wagon train about 1854-1855 to Yell County , Arkansas. The trip was made by her extended family as well . They had heard about the land for homesteading in Arkansas. Rebecca's father felt their land in North Carolina had been used for too many crops of cotton and tobacco and was worn out. Her parents were excited at the prospect of finding a new and better life for their family in Arkansas.Rebecca Louisa's grandparents Leonard Smith and Rebecca [Workman] Smith along with their other children all made the trip to Arkansas.
 
Rebecca Louisa's grandmother Rebecca [Shining Star] Workman, who married Leonard Smith of Rowan County , North Carolina was a Cherokee Indian . We had heard alot of stories about her and her husband Leonard Smith . We knew Leonard was a trapper when he married her.
 
    We were so thrill when we found the record of their marriage and found them living in Davidson County , North Carolina in the 1850 U. S. Census .
 
Rebecca's mother Elizabeth Evaline [Smith ] Woodall kept a family bible that was passed down to Rebecca Louisa and her daughter Arbelia [Farmer] Reed . Both Elizabeth Evaline and Rebecca Louisa recorded history in that old Bible.  What a treasure it is . There are also alot of old letters and notes about their family history that were keep over the years. Priceless little bits of information that helped so much in our research of the family tree . There were so many pictures that were keep and passed down to the Reed Cousins .
 
We are so thankful that both Rebecca Louisa and her daughter Arbelia keep them all to pass down to their family .
    The wagon trip from North Carolina to Arkansas was a hard long trip for them all . Elizabeth E. , Rebecca's mother keep a record of their travels and recorded all the details about herself , her children and the extended family menbers who made the trip with them. Rebecca's Uncle Obediah Smith and wife Aunt Margarite [Ryder] Smith with their children also made the trip with them.
 
    There were many stories about their lives and travels . Rebecca Louisa [Woodall] Farmer was a true pioneer woman .

Back in those years times were very dangerous for anyone who lived in the country . There were so many bushwackers that roamed the backroads and killed many men in the years of the Civil War . Rebecca Louisa's father George Washington Woodall was killed while ploughing in the fields .
 
 Rebecca's grandparents , Leonard Smith and Rebecca [Shinning Star] Workman Smith decided to take the family to a safer location until the danger of the backwoods and the the Civil War ended . According to family history they went to Fort Morrilton , Arkansas .
 
When things were safe again, they brought the family back to Riley Creek and helped their daughter Elizabeth Eveline [Smith] Woodall raise her children .
 
We do not know if Elizabeth's brother Obediah Smith and his wife Margaret [Ryder] Smith stayed on their land all thru the Civil War but we do know they keep their farm and lived there until their deaths .
 
We do know that Obediah Smith did not welcome company . His was a very private family and they keep to their selves . The Tax man never came to collect the taxes because Obediah Smith always sent them to town with a friend . Obediah usually had a friend go to town for their needed supplies .
 
There were rumors that after Obediah Smith's death his spirit roamed the back roads of Riley Creek . There were many nights people thought they saw him with an old lantern crossing the road toward the old Reed Place near the Petit Jean River bottoms .
 
We do know he and several members of his family are buried in the Smith/Talley Cemetery in Yell County , Ar.
