As you see Mary Lou didn't last very long after her twins were born. They didn't last very long either.

You may want this data to complete Sarah's records. If you feel that any of this is incorrect, feel free to omit or change what you will. Please tell Patty Ford, a fellow find a grave caretaker for William Hardin Lyon,that he married Mary Lou Brittain first and had 10 children by her. Mary Lou died in 1842.

Three marriages, 2 deaths, 17 kids between them. I took 40 hours of research and looked at endless web sites to come up with this data. I feel quite confident with it. Again, if you take issue with any small or large part of it, PLEASE contact me. I want to see this right. I visit 5 to 10 web sites a day. I generally send this data to 4 sites a week. So far no one has refuted any part of it. When I go back in a couple of weeks to check, most of them have made no changes to their sites. Contact me at if you need to.
