MORROW, ANNIE "PEGLEG" Idaho has a long roster of tough pioneers, but one of the toughest was “Pegleg” Annie Morrow, of Elmore County (pop 29,130). One winter day in 1896 while she was walking across Bald Mountain with her friend Dutch Em, a fierce blizzard blew up. When a search party found the pair, Morrow was half frozen and her friend was dead. A doctor amputated Morrow’s frozen feet. Morrow later became a mother and successful businesswoman. She died in 1934 and was buried in Boise’s Morris Hill Cemetery.
