      Mary Thompson Wickham stayed at the homeplace during the civil war, while her husband was in Missouri as a speculator. During her time at the homeplace she had honey bees and was known by family members to hide her money in with the bees for safe keeping, and a pistol in a tree stump for protection as there was much robbing and stealing during the war, especially since she was the mother of a Northern sympathier and was living in deep Southern terriority. Her son Robert Lewis Wickham and Robert's father in-law Bill Marsh were the only two votes at the Palmyra voting district to vote against the seccesion from the Union. The next day after the vote they went to Kentucky to sign up with the Union forces leaving Elizabeth Marsh Wickham and her mother in law Mary Thompson Wickham alone in the Wickham homeplace. (per conversation with Nancy Wickham Ledbetter, granddaughter of E.T. Wickham)

      In 1860 Mary Polly Thompson Wickhan is listed in the household with Son Robert Lewis Wickham and his family. She is 70 years old.
