  • Notes 
    • Mary is listed in a pension that went into effect on 12 July 1890 therefore she must have been alive on that date. However, she is not listed in the household of her mother in the 1900 census and Mary indicates that only 3 of her children are alive. John, Stanton, and Susan were all listed living with their mother. Mary E then died sometime between 12 July 1890 and the date of the census, 2 June 1900. She was too young to have married but no death records have been found.
