The family story is that Mary Jane was the first "white" child born in what was then called the Carson County, Utah Territory (today is Story County, Nevada). Her mother, Barbara Matteson, died giving birth to her.
In the 1860 Census, Mary Jane is being cared for by Edwin and Mary Canada. They in what was called Steam Boat Valley, Carson County, Utah Territory.
In 1864, her father William married Lavina Burnette. Lavina died the following year giving birth to Mary's half-brother Ralph.
Now, her father has two motherless children in a harsh and brutal land. He must have decided that was enough and returned to his family's home in Goodhue County, Minnesota. He hired a young lady, Mary E. Maynard, to look after the two children and the house. On December 30, 1870, he married Mary E. Maynard.
Mary Jane is next found marrying William Thomas Eves, on September 28, 1881, in Owatonna, Steele County, Minnesota.
Mary and William spent a few years in Steele County before moving on to Reno County, Kansas. After a few years in Kansas, they moved on to Oklahoma, Oregon, and eventually settled in Toppenish, Yakima County, Washington, where they lived until their deaths.
