Notes

  • The following genealogy provides good information on John MercerThompson and his wife Mary Jane Looney.  I am uncertain about theplace of marriage.  There may be an error here due to an entryconfusion between the town of St Clair in Franklin County, in easternMissouri, while St Clair County, where they lived and she died, is inwestern Missouri.  I suspect they were married in St Clair County, notFranklin County.
