Mississippi Verners

While researching in the Monroe County, Ms courthouse, I came across several estate files of Charles J. Verner. After study of these files, the following family can be documented.
John Verner (deceased by 1857, but estate still being settled and paying money into the estate of his son, Charles, also deceased.)
Son-Charles J Verner Was married twice and had 10 children. He died in Oct. 1855,
Charles first married Mary T. Verner. They had 5 children.
1. Joseph D Verner : was named admin. of his father's estate but died Nov 28, 1855, one month after his father. Brothers, John and Samuel were then made admin. of their father's estate)
2. John A Verner (possible that his occupation was an attorney. A lawyer named John A Verner, represented his brother Samuel E. as guardian of sisters Mary and Ann in 1861.)
3. Samuel E Verner
4. Mary R. E. Verner (over age of 14 when father Charles died, so was able to choose her brother Samuel as her guardian. (was in Smith County, Texas by 1861)
5. Ann H Verner (over age of 14 when father died, was able to choose her brother Samuel as her guardian. )
2nd wife of Charles J. Verner-Sarah Jane Verner. They also had 5 children.
1. William L. Verner
2. Eliza Jane Verner (married J Winder)
3. Sarah Clement Verner
4. Charles H Verner
5. George Perry Verner
My interest in this family is that a John A Verner married my ancestor Harriet Isabella Mosley on Jan 12, 1876 in Monroe County, Ms. The above family lived very close to mine and I feel that this John A was her husband. Sadly by the 1880 census, John has died and I find Isabella and a 3 year old daughter named Maggie Verner back in the home of Isabella's parents (identified as a widow) in Monroe county. I want to know what happened to Isabella and little Maggie. I hope this information helps someone. Maybe you can shed a little light my way. Thank you Ann
