In the year of 1853 she was united in marriage with Evan Thomas (and) to this union was born one child, Sophia.

Her husband died in 1885. She lived with her son, Daniel Jones in the town of Colby until his death abouth (about) eleven years ago, since she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Wm.
