  • The following genealogy provides good information on John Mercer Thompson and his wife Mary Jane Looney.  I am uncertain about the place of marriage.  There may be an error here due to an entry confusion between the town of St Clair in Franklin County, in eastern Missouri, while St Clair County, where they lived and she died, is in western Missouri.  I suspect they were married in St Clair County, not Franklin County.
