On 24 Oct. 1835, Thomas married Mary Ann Harrison, daughter of (Richard) Lemuel and Judith Wood Harrison. Mary Ann came from an influential southern family. Her father was a circuit clerk and the first county commissioner and surveyor of the county.
As a Black Hawk War veteran, Thomas received land in and around Bloomfield, Davis Co., Iowa and farmed the land. They raised 5 children of their own: Andrew Jackson b. abt. 1837, Harrison b. abt. 1838( married Anasah Welch), Rebecca b. abt. 1842 (married John Wyatt), Susan Jane b. 9 Jan. 1845 (married Wm.

Mary Hodges McBee died soon after Matilda, her 12th child, was born. Matilda married George W. Hudgens.
Around the time of the Civil War, the Hale family sold all their land in Davis Co. and moved to Praire Twp., Schuyler Co., Missouri. Their grandchildren and great grandchildren lived in Queen City and Greentop. Some of them moved later to Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska.
