Mary Elizabeth Nason Whittier Severance
Birth: Sep. 11, 1869
Cape Elizabeth
Cumberland County
Maine, USA
Death: Dec. 22, 1943
Rockingham County
New Hampshire, USA

Mary was the daughter of James E. and Lucretia (Smith) Nason. She married John W. Whittier in 1891. John predeceased her in 1902 of the flu epidemic. They had two daugters. Elizabeth died of a cerebral hemorrhage. She was 4 1/2 years old. Their other daughter was  Alice Marian and her husband Edward G.Hatch,Sr. Mary and John lived in Haverhill early in her marriage.They lived at 51/57 Enterprise Street at the time of their son John's death in 1899 at the five. The cause of John's death on his death certificate is listed as an accident of some kind. Mary and her husband are listed as having lived on Pleasent Street in 1900.The house that they lived in on Enterprise Street was torn down years ago. Condos now stand where their house once stood. On Pleasant Street their former house still stands. In the years following John's passing Mary met Walter Severance. For awhile there Mary and Walter lived together in Amesbury,Mass on High Street. This was during a time in which cohabitation wasn't acceptable. In 1916 they got married. After Walter died in the 1930s Mary went to live with her daughter Marian and her family in Newton,New Hampshire at 74 Main Street. Mary was known to be somewhat vain. However from everything I've been told Mary was a very nice person. Mary was seventy-four at the time of her death. She died at home of pneumonia and is buried along side of her first husband John. Her son and daughter Elizabeth are buried in the same lot.
