  • Notes 
    • According to Cleva: Phoebe wasn't treated too well by John. He was a rounder they say. But Phobe just took it in stride and used to say, "Oh well, I flew all around the pretty birds and landed on a turd." She was a short, petite, Irish woman with black hair and black eyes. Whenever they would go to a barn raising, they would all say, " Come on Phoebe, dance a jig!" And she'd get up an do an Irish jig and she would dance so fast her feet would be a blur. During the Depression, a lot of the men in the country went to Detroit to work. One of John's distant cousins, the Huffmans, lived down the road. John felt it was his responsibility to see that Mrs. Huffman had everything she needed while her husband was away. He took his responsibility VERY seriously and decided to take care of both his and her needs. Since there was a house full of kids, they created a "love nest" near Black River, along the levee, cushioning their nest with branches to make it soft. Phoebe suspected John's indiscretion so she started to look around and found their "love nest". Being a woman of passive aggression, and one not to confront her husband directly, took matters into her own "hands"?. She scooped away the branches, soiled the nest by relieving herself in it, and covered up her "deed". A few days later when John returned from his neighborly "duties", he walked to the kitchen where Phoebe was cooking supper. As he passed, Phoebe sniffed the air and said, "Smellin' a little high, aren't ya, John?" And that was the last of John's little escapade with Mrs. Huffman, although the story goes that John felt responsible for taking care of more than one of the neighbor ladies. Other information provided by John H. Hardin: Family legend has it that she was raised by her sister or an aunt. Phoeba died of intestinal cancer in 1933 in Butler County, Missouri, and is buried in Marble Hill Cemetery.
