Well, I had this saved to file on Finis Ewing Hall, from our very own
Sharron Scott. She is a Hays researcher:

Date: 08/18/2000
I have on my family file that I sent to several of your. that there was a
Mary J. Hays who married Finis Ewing Hall. I think that information is
wrong. This Finis Ewing Hall is Married to a Mary J. Thompson. I just got a
message from a lady who said that those same children and husband is her
family and that Mary J. is a Thompson not a Hays.
If these are Mary J. Hays of children then I have the wrong husband. and I
haven't find where I got my information. So, we need to look again for Mary
J. Hays family information. Mary J. Hays is Henry W. Hays and Henrietta
Freeman daughter. So, I thought for many years this was the right
information. So, I need to start all over again for this Mary J. Hays.
Please make a note of this ERROR

At one time and I haven't taken out of my files. I thought Mary J. Hays was
married to Finis Ewing Hall, But I got a message from a lady that said that
Finis Ewing Hall was married to a Mary J. Thompson. So, I'm still trying to
find out for sure who Mary Jane Hays was married to. I don't know but maybe
she could have been married first to a Thompson before marrying the Hall.
I'm still work on it. Its one of those thing that you can't get out of you
mind untill you find the right information. She may have married a Hall but
maybe not Finis Ewing Hall. So, if any one have anything on Mary Jane Hays
and who she married let me know. She is the daughter of Henry W. Hays and
Heniretta Freeman

So.............that obituary pretty well confirms that. Sharron may have
updated information herself that confirms it, if not - I hope she sees your
post. I'll cc: this to her, just in case.

Mary Jane Thompson, you say?

I'll look around for you.
