Notes

  • Mary is listed as Molly in some family references.  This was a commonname for Mary.  The 1880 census reports her as age 38, which wouldmake her birth about 1842.  But the 18509 census reprots she was only4 years old then.  It is likely more correct that the 1880 census.

    From the report of age 4 in the 1850 census, Mary should be age 14now, not 21.  Going by the age reported in the 1880 census, she wouldhave been born in about 1842, which would make her about 18 in 1860.She was 30 in 1870, which would have placed birth in about 1840.
