William Thomas is listed in the 1850 census of Desoto county. Stephen Thomas Eason, age 21, was living with the family as
was a sister Martha Simms Eason who later was married to Wm. Lackland. William Thomas died of pnuemonia when only
43 years of age.
The Huntsville, Alabama newspaper carried the following account of the death of Lucy Ann Harris. "The announcement
of the death of Mrs. Lucy Ann Eason of DeSoto County, MS. will recall to the minds of many old citizens and friends in this
vacinity, the bright gentle and sweet Lucy Ann Harris of many years back. Excellent in her scholastic attainments and
winning the kind esteem of all by her suave, gentle manner and shrinking modesty. She was a favorite with her acquant-
ances. Marrying Mr. Thomas Eason of this county, they, with their parents and family, moved in the year 1840 to DeSoto
County, Mississippi, where they have since resided. She ever manifested in her daily life the virtues of the chaste wife,
the anxious mother, the true woman, and pious Christian. She was deprived for many years past of the aid, counsel, and
influence of her devoted husband. Upon her devolved the cares of her two sons, now grown to manhood."
