She married Thomas L. Sumrall on 13 November 1881 in Marion County, Mississippi. After marriage, the couple settled in Louisiana and had five children: Jannette "Nettie", Lizzie, Angelean, Missouri and Alice.

Melissa was the sister to my 2nd great grandmother, Sabra Crawley. Therefore, she is my 2nd great grand aunt.
