After Alexander enlisted his wife and children received threats and their home set on fire. Alexander' wife Mary Ann, infant son and three small daughters had to flee for their life. The infant son Reuben High died shortly after he, his mother and sibling were forced from their home in Knox Co, TN. Later, somewhere in Arkansas Gen Grant found Mary Ann High and her three small daughters hiding, Gen Grant told Mary Ann & the children they were in great danger because a battle would soon be fought where they were. Gen Grant hid Mary Ann and her little girls under a bridge. Mary Ann and the girls said dirt from the horses' feet fell through the cracks onto their faces while they were hiding under the bridge.
After the battle, Gen Grant took Mary Ann and her daughters to his camp and held the oldest daughter Mary Elizabeth, on his lap. He gave them food and water before sending them into town on a wagon, with the wounded and dead.
