Birth: Jun. 2, 1851
Blount County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Aug. 22, 1936
Blount County
Tennessee, USA

Mary was the first of nine children born to James McClanahan and Mary Ann "Polly" Hubbard.

Her father died in the Civil War in Rutherford County, TN and her mother was left with the sole care of their children. Being poor, she was overwhelmed with the burden of such a task.

In the 1870 census, Mary and her sister Rebecca Catherine are living with their appointed guardian. Rebecca would marry the following year in Blount County.

In the 1880 census, Mary, who is single, is living in the home of her mother Mary "Polly" Smith and her husband, Henry Smith in Clay County, NC. She is listed in this census as Mary Smith, step-daughter.

In 1920 & 1930, Mary is found living in the home of her sister Rebecca Catherine {McClanahan} Rogers and husband William Benjamin Rogers in Blount County, TN.

Her sister would precede her in death in 1934 and Mary was placed in the County Home in Maryville, where she would die as the result of cardio-nephritis.

She was 84-years of age.
