  • Notes 
    • MHR note: Stories told by Ida M. (Hedges) Cronkite to Miriam Hickman. Malinda, daughter of Peter and Mary (Armstrong) Cassity married William Ribelin Hedges. They used to say "she lifted the limb of a tree it took two men to lift." This is the true story. She and a small boy with his mother were hurrying to get home from a storm. Part of a tree blew down and caught the boy and pinned him down. Malinda lifted till the mother could drag him out. Next day two men went to clear the road and it took two men to lift it from the ground. This was my father's mother and he told me he had seen her lift an anvil off the block with one hand. She could weave four yards of jeans then walk four miles up hill to spend the night with a neighbor. When she was seventy, she was still spinning and weaving. The year she was eighty-two, 1887, your grandmother came with her to Illinois. They were two days on the train. There were four sons, two grandsons, and one granddaughter to visit, all in Vermillion County, but hard trips between in horse and buggy days. Then a train to Montezuma, Indiana to visit two nieces. Then to Louisville, Kentucky, where the youngest son met her with a lumber wagon to take her over a corduroy road sixteen miles to his home. Back again to Louisville and then the train on home at the mouth of Blue Bank on the Licking River near Farmes, Kentucky.

      About a week later she heard there was to be preaching at Slaty Point. This was about three miles away. There she had gone to church all her life. They had no conveyance but hadn't they always walked? So she went. At the church she got sick and they took her to the nearest neighbor and a day or two later she died. She was eighty-two years old. At the age of seventeen she went from her father's home to her husband. She moved from the old house to the new and lived sixty-five years on the same farm.
