In June 1866, Daniel Ayers of Hardeman Co TN wrote a relative in AR a
letter. In this letter, he said his wife had recently died, and he had
given his only surviving son his plantation, and was to live in Montezuma
with his daughter Merena Wade. He went on to mention the other children,
and one was Mary Jane Ayers, wife of Isaac N Thompson.
"My next daughter, Mary Jane Thompson is living in Prairy County, Arkansas.
She has bought a tract of land where she lives and also owns a fine and
valuable tract of land in Dunklin County, Missouri. Her children are all
grown up and scattered. She has been a widow for 10 years."

Mary Jane's daughter, Martha Thompson, had married Jonathan Madison Ozment.
"I wish you to go to Helena and cross the river and go and see a Mr.
Madison J. Ozment, who married my granddaughter Martha Thompson. I have two
other granddaughters there living with Mr. Ozment. He is truly an
interesting man. But at first sight you would think him not worth a jackleg
knife. But on further acquaintance, you will soon find him to be qualified
to represent his country in any assembly. He lives only 4 miles from Helen,
Moon Lake. " (MS)
