    In 1850, Mary Jane was enumerated in the household of her sister Susan Gregory Rinehart.

    In the 1870 census, Mary Jane was still reported in Isaac Rinehart's residence, enumerated as Jane Gregory, age 58.  Her sister Susan, Isaac's wife, had died before that 1870 census (which is 8 years older than we would expect from the age 30 reported in 1850).
