Thompson Cousins-and Long/Bowers/Mizes

Posted: 13 Feb 2011 10:43PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Thompson, Long, Bowers, Mize
Lydia Jane Thompson married William H Long on 21 Aug 1870 in Edgar County. Mary Ann Thompson who married Joseph Bowers is a cousin to Lydia Jane.
Mary "Mollie" Catherine Bowers (dau of Joseph & Mary Ann) married my great grandfather, George Mize.
George and Mollie had one child in 1885, Edward Milford Mize, in MO where they had gone to live near other relatives after they had married in Edgar County.
Mollie died when Edward was about 9 mo old. She told George before she died to take Edward to Lydia and William for them to raise him and they did--in Arkansas.

I am trying to connect the 2 Thompson families since Lydia and Mary Ann were 'cousins.' And, therefore, track Mollie's line back further.

And, I cannot find Mollie's burial in MO--so if any of the relatives have that information, it would be greatly appreciated, too.
