ANNA BELLE BAKER born 20 Aug 1898 in Bakerden, Randolph County, Arkansas, and
died 29 Mar 1926 in Bakerden, Randolph County, Arkansas from TB.
She married HOMER ASRO GOING 06 Jun 1915 in Oregon County, Missouri, son of
CHARLES ASRO GOING and SARAH ANN LOONEY. He was born 05 Dec 1896 in Dalton,
Randolph County, Arkansas, and died 12 Jun 1940 in Paragould, Greene County,
Anna Belle's youngest daughter, Mildred (Millie) explained the spelling
difference in her mother's first name; in a conversation Millie had with her
Aunt Margaret, Anna Belle's sister, Margaret told her of how her sister disliked
the spelling of her first name because she felt it was too long to write. So in
Anabel's teen years she began signing her name "Anabel" and her family and
acquaintances accepted the change and they too began using the new spelling.
Anabel and Homer settled on a farm in Wiley, Randolph County, Arkansas, and
started their family.
Children of Anabel Baker and Homer Asro Going:
NOLA ALTA GOING, born 01 Dec 1916 in Randolph County, Arkansas; died. 21 Nov
1971 in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.
NADINE JALIA GOING, born 03 Oct 1918 in Randolph County, Arkansas; died 11 May
2009 in St Louis, St Louis, Missouri.
MILDRED GERALDINE GOING, born 14 Jul 1921 in Randolph County, Arkansas; died 25
Feb 2013 in Mountain View, Santa Clara County, California.
Millie also remembered that when her mother became ill with TB, Anabel moved
back with her parents in her childhood Bakerden country home for the healing
affects of the fresh country air. The family screened in the front porch and
put her bed there so the air could blow through carrying the bad air out of the
room. Anabel also needed to be away from her children for their health safety.
Millie says she can remember her daddy taking them to visit their mother and
they could only talk to her through the screened-in front porch. They couldn't
have any physical contact with their mother.
Anabel eventually died from her disease at her parent's home. It has been
discussed and questioned "why?" she wasn't sent to the tuberculosis hospital in
Booneville, Arkansas for treatment.
