IDA BELLE MAGERS married ARCHIBALD LEE FULLER on April 22, 1908. Archie was born October 3, 1872. He was a Farmer like just about everyone else at that time. His folks were in Mount Pleasant, Texas, so they moved there to be near them. He bought a farm near Omaha, Texas. His was a very hard life. This was told to me by Woodrow. "One day Woodrow (the baby) was sick, so Archie was walking to town to get him some medicine. He was walking past one of the empty houses that was on some land he was renting. He heard noises coming from the house, so he went to investigate. A man was stealing boards, he was ripping them from the floor and walls. Archie told him to stop or he would get the Sheriff, the man stopped so Archie went on to town. As he was coming back he heard the same noises that he had heard before. He went to the house again and the same man was still ripping boards off the house. Archie confronted him again and was attacked and killed with a claw hammer. His body was dragged into some weeds and was not found for several days. They finally found who had done this awful deed and he was tried and sentenced to only four years in prison. His wife even had the gall to ask IDA to ask the judge to let him off with no time in jail so he could take care of his family. Of course IDA refused, but the man only served 2 years in jail. He got off on good behavior."
Archie died at Omaha, Texas December 10,1919. He was only 49 years old. He is buried there in Omaha.. They had 6 children IMA, ARAH, LENNIE, MARIE, ELVA and WOODROW
