"Bud" Thomason was the son of Zemeriah Thomason & Jannett Montgomery. He was born in Union, Georgia, in 1831, and the family moved to Burlington, Boone County, Arkansas in 1851. In 1858, he and his 1st wife, Nancy McCoy moved to Taney County, MO.


The Civil War led to terrible hardships for the Thomason families, due to their mixed loyalties for the North & South. Fathers, sons, and brothers often joined opposite armies and fought against each other.

This may be the reason Young Z. changed the spelling of his last name to "Thomison", as it appears on his stone.

Feb. 4 1864, at Ozark, MO, he enlisted in Union Army, Co. C, 16th Regt, Missouri Infantry. He was discharged Aug 3, 1864.

His 1st wife died in 1866, and he married Mary Bassam in 1868.

"Bud" Thomason was killed in a tragic hunting accident in 1881. He was the father of 13 children.
