Alice Tackett was born 18 Oct 1854 in Arkansas, as a daughter of George L Tackett (1830-65). Although her 1860 census entry states she was born in Kentucky, she was probably born in either Arkansas County or Phillips County where her family had lived for some time. The name of Alice's mother is currently unknown, and she must have died or left by the time of the 1860 census as she does not appear with the family then. However, it is known that she was born in Indiana as Alice, three times in subsequent decades, states "IN" for her mother's birthstate.
Alice's father died Jun 1865 and her mother predeceased him. Her brother Marcus was two years younger than she. A family story states that she and her brother Marcus were raised by Edmond Pendleton Gaines Tackett [their first cousin]. This same Edmond settled George's estate and was later sued by Alice and Marcus. In the depositions of that suit, it states that Alice lived with Edmond until she married, and that Marcus lived with Edmond until he was a teenager.
Alice married first to Charles A Harris on 27 Oct 1872 in Phillips County, Arkansas. She had two children from this union: George L Harris abt 1873 and Marion L Harris about 1877. Alice married Christopher Columbus Hall in 1880, probably in Phillips County, Arkansas. They had one child James in 1884.
In 1900 they are living at Mooney, Phillips County, Arkansas, with one son James.
According to James' World War 1 Draft Registration Card (see below) by 1918 the family is living at Elaine, Phillips County. Christopher died Nov 1919 in Phillips County, Arkansas. He died a few days after being dragged by his horse-drawn wagon. He is buried in the "Old Soldiers graveyard" aka "Confederate Cemetery" in Helena, Phillips County, Arkansas. Alice is living with her son in the 1920 census of West Helena. Her son James, while a resident of Elaine, on 24 Jul 1923, age 39 married Inez Williams age 19 of that same place. This was his third wife.
In 1930, Alice is living as a widow, with her son James in Tensas Parish, Louisiana and this is where she died on 18 Oct 1934, as proven by her Tensas Parish death certificate.
