Mary Josephine Bennett was born July 2, 1855, in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. She was the daughter of Zadok St. John and Minerva Ross Bennett. In 1869, when she was four or five years old, the Bennett family left Indiana and went to Moundville, Vernon County, Missouri.

Mary Josephine Bennett married Abraham Jetson Shanholtzer on October 14, 1875, in Moundville, Missouri. The Shanholtzer family was also living in Moundville, having migrated initially from West Virginia, and then Illinois.

Abraham J. and Mary J. Shanholtzer had 10 children. Oldest child, Ross, died in infancy in Moundville. The next two children were also born there.

By 1882, the family was living in Crawford county, Kansas. The remainder of the children were born in that county. One other child, Philander, also died in infancy there. Their children were: Ross (1876-1876); Angie (1878-1962); Grace Bell (1880-1967); William Andrew (1882-1946); Alonzo Mannon (1884-1967); Alva Jetson (1886-1971); Isa May (1888-1964); Philander (1889-1889); Ray A.
