They raised their children there until they were grown, and when Thomas was aging and in bad health, they moved into Gleason, Tenn. in 1903. Thomas died the following year on Nov. 2, 1904 from a stoke. Thomas was buried in the Hopewell Cemetery, Weakley Co. Tenn. After a long life, Mary Frances died on Feb 3, 1940 and was buried beside Thomas.
