Birth: Dec. 2, 1873
Cherokee County

Death: Oct. 8, 1910
Caddo County

Ida Alice, daughter of Eli Balus Akin and Minerva Jane Tucker, was born in Ranger, North Carolina. She 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.

Ida's obituary simply stated:
"GHOST MOUND
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.
