I am looking for any possible info on a John Thomas who married Mary Jane Williams (abt 1863-bef 1900) on August 6, 1882 in Polk Co., TX.
Mary Jane's father was Hezekiah Williams (1836-1906). Although not proven, I believe that Mary Jane's mother was Lucinda Vickery, daughter of Aaron Vickery of Yalobusha, MS and Mary Jane Russell.
To my knowledge, John and Mary Jane only had two children before both passing sometime before 1900.
1. Mamie Mae Thomas (1883-1960) who married Moody Sankey Galloway
2. Willie Omer Thomas (1884-1967) who married Margaret Pearl James
In accordance to the 1900 census, it is possible for John Thomas to be born in Alabama. The fields for both Mamie and Willie stated Alabama as their father's birthplace while the two were living with their grandfather, Hezekiah Williams in Polk Co.
