Since David Thomas died before that of his wife, Mary Elizabeth (Harrison) Thomas, I'm looking for information about a possible remarriage of Mary Elizabeth Thomas.
Also I have only information on one of the daughters, Sarah Elizabeth Thomas, who married Alexander Smith Rush on 18-Sept-1867 in Clio, Barbour Co., AL.What became of the other four daughters.Some records show a 6th daughter, Caroline, who died young, so only 5 daughters lived to maturity and may have married.
