Ida Barbarick was born in Wisconsin June 10, 1876 in a one-room log home "with a shake roof, board floor, two windows and a door." She was the fourth living child of Melvina and William Wallace Barbarick. When she was about three or four the family moved to Sherman in Grayson County, Texas.

At 15 she married James Snyder and two children were born, Myrtle (Murrell) in 1893 when she was 16 and Richard Roy in 1895 when she was 18. James Snyder worked for the railroad and disappeared. A letter dated September 1906 from Melvina Barbarick (written for her by her daughter Alta and addressed to Melissa Krum) says that Jim Snyder is in Seattle, Washington and would like to see his children. Do not believe he ever saw his children as his descendents thought he had died and did not know about any contact.

Ida married Benjamin F. Dodson February 25, 1900 and he adopted her two children. He died in Ocober 1904.

A year later November 3, 1905 she married William T. Creason. This was an unhappy marriage and Ida died six years later on January 6, 1912 at the age of 35. According to her death certificate, burial was in Maple Grove Cemetery in Grayson County. doesn't seem to have this cemetery listed.
