Among the pioneering families that left Bedford County, Tennessee in 1852 were Mathis and Elizabeth Price and Isaiah and Frances Webb. These two families went in covered wagons with their black slaves to homestead the tree-covered Ozark Hills in Northwest Arkansas near the small community of Pea Ridge, Ark. The Price family settled three miles west of Pea Ridge near a big spring from which they carried water. The Webb family settled a bit north and east of the Price homestead.
Mathis Price (1810-Mar 18, 1875) and Elizabeth Price (Oct 15, 1808 - Oct 3, 1875)
Isaiah Webb (Apr 20, 1796 - Sep 7, 1881) and Frances Elizabeth Webb (May 19, 1802 - Apr 23, 1860)
Prices are buried in the Pea Ridge Cemetery.
Webbs are buried in the Hickman Cemetery.
Thomas F. Price and Zulima Webb, being young teenagers, came with their parents and must have enjoyed the adventures. These two were married Dec 27, 1866, by John P. Maxwell in Bentonville, Benton County, Arkansas. T.F. served in the Confederate Army, being discharged May 5, 1865. The couple lived in a large two-store home on the homestead. Possum Trot, a school/church, was located on the property near the spring and was the center of many activities for miles around. The minister often stayed at the Price home. All of the Price children attended school here. Of course, they had wagons and buggies for transportation, but often walked the three miles to the "store" (Pea Ridge). A few times each year they made the seven mile all-day trip to Bentonville for a special treat in shopping.
