"Still Alert at 91"
When her husband was captured in the Battle of Pea Ridge and brought to Springfield, Mrs. Elizabeth Plaster dashed in to see him. Stockades, hard-headed captains and other difficulties couldn't stop her. Mrs. Plaster, now 91, three times married, is visiting at the home of a son, Lum Moses, of 1103 East Brower Street. She married her first husband, John Williams, at 18. Mrs. Plaster was born in 1840 in Webster County, near Marshfield, the daughter of John Cardwell. Her present home is in Altoona, Kansas, where she resides with a daughter.
