REESE'S CHAPEL CHURCH AND CEMETERY-MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
THOMAS, Asenath Houston, 11 Jan 1784 - 23 Aug 1824. “Wife of Isaac J. Thomas.” (Box tomb) Isaac was married three times with all three wives being buried here near him. The first wife (here) was Asenath Houston who died in 1824. She was the mother of his children. His second wife was Mary (Interred in this cemetery also). As far as I know he had no children with her. Mary died in 1830. In 1834 Isaac married the former Martha W. Moody. He had no children with Martha, but his surviving children from Asenath remained close to her and helped to settle her estate when she died in 1875 as she had no children of her own. Martha remembered them in her will. (A Footstone with the initials S.A.E.H. is lying on the surface of this stone.) Photo & info by Rick Gray & Wayne Austin July 4, 2003.
