General Notes: The following is taken from resolutions by Schuyler Sutton Camp No. 1663 U.C.V., of San Angelo, Tex., on the death of Henry Ditmore, a member in good standing:
"Henry Ditmore was born near Athens, Tenn., September 27, 1841, and died in San Angelo, Tex., January 29, 1923. When he was three years of age, his parents removed to North Carolina, near the Tennessee and Georgia line, from which place he enlisted in the Confederate army in 1861. He was a member of Company D, 25th North Carolina Infantry. He was captured in 1863 and sent to Fort Delaware prison, where he remained until the close of the war. He was in the battle of Fredericksburg and all the battles in the east and around Richmond prior to his capture.
"Comrade Ditmore removed to Texas in 1867, settling in Panola County, and was married to Miss Elvira Matthew, of which union there were thirteen children, seven of them surviving him - six sons and one daughter.
"In 1886 Comrade Ditmore moved to East Texas, settling on Grape Creek in Tom Greene county, where he lived continuosly until just a few years before his death, when he retired from active life and came to San Angelo. His wife died in 1911.
He was a kind husband, an indulgent father, and loyal to his friends. He rendered valient services as a soldier of the Confederacy, and was a man of high honor and integrity. In his death our camp has lost a faithful member and Tom Greene County a good citizen."

Pleasant married Ida Alice AKIN,31 daughter of Eli Balus AKIN 31 and Minerva Jane TUCKER,31 on 25 October 1894. Ida was born on 2 December 1873 in Ranger, Cherokee County, North Carolina,10 died on 8 October 1910 in Hydro, Caddo County, Oklahoma at age 36, and was buried in Union/Mound Valley Cemetery (unmarked grave).

General Notes: Ida Alice, daughter of Eli Balus Akin and Minerva Jane Tucker, was born in Ranger, North Carolina. She was born 2 Dec 1873, but is age 5 in the 1880 census.

Ida married Ples Henry Ditmore on 25 October 1894. They made their home in Ranger. Between 1895 and 1908, they had six children: Minnie Dale, Nelia Lucille, Bessie Mae, Glenn James, Oliver Lee, and Alice Ida.

About 1909, Ida and Ples moved their family to Caddo County, Oklahoma. She and Ples lived in a community called Ghost Mound in a rural area near Lone Star School of Hydro. Ida was only 36 when she died on 8 October 1910. She was buried 9 October 1910.

Mrs. Ditmore near Lone Star school house died Saturday ans was buried in the Mound Valley cemetery Sunday afternoon."

Ida's grave was listed as unmarked in a 2001 canvassing of Mound Valley Cemetery by Ethel Buie and Nancy Charlton (USGenWeb). More than 90 years after Ida's death, her great-granddaughter, Bonnie Bowen, located her grave site in Mound Valley Cemetery and placed a headstone for her.

Marriage Notes: "Ditmore, Ples H. Ross, Rosa 445 04feb1912" ( http://www.rootsweb.com/~okcaddo/marriage/marbk5g.txt)

General Notes: Found the marriage date, 4 February 1912, for Ples H. and Rosa ROSS, but no other information. My suspicion is that she probably died about 1917, before Ples married Marinthia Mae BALL. It is interesting that Nelia Lucile DITMORE, d/o Ida Alice Akin, and her husband, Lee Edward RUSSELL named a daughter Rosa Lee. In the apparently few years that Rosa was a step-mother, she must have been looked on favorably by Ida Alice's offspring. Names come from someplace; ergo, was Rosa ROSS was the honoree?

Pleasant next married Marinthia Mae BALL,34 daughter of BALL, on 8 January 1919 in Caddo County, Oklahoma. Marinthia was born about 1882 in North Carolina34 and died in 1934 in Hydro, Caddo County, Oklahoma about age 52.

Marriage Notes: "Ditmore, P.H. Stepp, Pinthia 325 08jan1919" (http://www.rootsweb.com/~okcaddo/marriage/marbk9g.txt)

General Notes: Marinthia Mae BALL, "Rintha", married first Columbus Erastus WALKER in North Carolina. She had two sons by him, Fred Norman and Ross Fair WALKER. This marriage failed. Columbus remarried to Catherine about 1907, named in the 1910 census of Cherokee County, North Carolina with their son, Clarence, age 23 months..

Rintha married second David STEPP, listed as his wife in the 1910 census of Mayes County, Oklahoma, a second marriage for both. Their three children were Hazel, Lillian, and William STEPP.

1910 U.S. Census, Oklahoma, Mayes County, 3-Wd Chouteau; Series: T624 Roll: 1262 Page: 138: 40 40 STEPP David Head M W 49 M2 2 MO TN TN Carpenter house; -- Rinthe Wife F W 27 M2 2 3 3 NC TN Unk; -- Fred W. Son M W 8 S NC NC NC; -- Ross F. Son M W 5 S NC NC NC; -- Hazel I. Dau F W 14/12 S OK MO NC.

David apparently died before 1919 when "Pinthia STEPP" married Ples Henry DITMORE in Caddo County, Oklahoma. She is listed as "Mirintha" in the 1920 census with Hazel I., Lillian Pauline, and William G. STEPP in Ples' household as step-children. Between 191 and 1927, Ples and Rintha had four children of their own, Marjorie Lowetta, Geneva Mary, Helen Anna, and Forest Leroy "Jack" DITMORE.

Marinthia died in 1937.
