Mary Louisa Dunlap was born February 22, 1844 to William and Pamelia Bryan Dunlap in Fayette County, Kentucky. The family shows up in the 1850 census in District 2, Fayette, Kentucky. Her father and oldest brother are listed as farmers. By 1860 the family had relocated to District 18, Callaway, Missouri.

At the time of the 1870 census, Mary and William lived in Polk, Cass County. He is listed as "working out." Mary is listed as keeping house. Daughter Harriet was born in Cass County, Missouri in 1870 (presumably after the August 11 census since she doesn't appear in the record). Son James Gibson was born in Pleasant Hill February 10, 1872.

By 1874, William and Mary had moved to Nevada. The following children were born to them while living in Nevada: Docia, 1874; Nell, July 6, 1875; William, 1878; and Mary (also known as May and Maym), July 1879.

William's obituary says they moved to Oregon in 1879. The family moved to Jackson County where William's brother John lived as well. At the time of the 1880 census the couple lived in Manzanita, Jackson, Oregon. William is listed as a farmer; Mary as keeping house.

William and Mary next show up in the 1900 Federal census living in Nehalem City, Tillamook, Oregon where William worked as a day laborer. Children Docia, William and Harriet were no longer living as Mary's record states she had 8 children, 5 still living. Daughters Rosa Pearl, March 16, 1884, and Gertrude, June 5, 1889, lived with the couple at that time.
