Daughter of Noble Cruse and Elizabeth Ann Prewett. Wife of Warren J. Peck and John L. Melhorn.

Ida married first Warren J. Peck September 04, 1887, Marion County, Illiois. They divorced in Macon County, Illinois in 1904.

About 1905, Ida married again, John L. Melhorn. The marriage might have ended with a divorce, as by 1930, both John and Ida were enumerated separately, both indicating they were widowed.

Please note that the stone must incorrect and was probably placed after the fact. The Illinois State Deaths and Stillbirths, indicate her date of birth as 1866 and died 1936.
