Since MISER is not a familiar Izard County name to me, I decided to see
what I could find. In Carroll Hayden's Izard County Cemetery Book
there are 6 Miser children listed in the Mennonite Church Cemetery/aka
as Old Baptist Cemetery.
Edith - 09 Aug 1891 - 08 Dec. 1897
Hattie - 11 Jan 1882 - 15 Dec. 1897
Mabel C. (Dau of R. H. & Bettie Miser) 24 Nov 1886 - 01 Jan 1888
Mary P. ( Dau of R. H. & Bettie Miser) 22 Jan 1889 - 07 Aug 1891
Mildred ( Dau of R. H. & Bettie Miser) 12 Nov 1902 - 27 June 1903
Robert S. 12 June 1894 - 02 Jan 1898

Edith, Hattie and Robert might also be children of R. H. and Bettie.

Izard County Marriage Records
MISER, Ethel 17 Melbourne AR to JACOBS, J. Arthur 19 Melbourne

I can't say for certain, but this looks very much like this could be
Hattie Bell Miser's family.
