Mary Arney, the oldest of four children, all daughters, of Daniel and Anna (Philips) Arney, was born in Hocking Township (Fairfield County), OH. In 1840, she came to Allen County, IN with her parents who settled on land in Washington Township (Allen County). The farm today is known as "Smith Airfield" on Ludwig Road. Her father, Daniel Arney, died at that farm in 1858 and is buried in the nearby St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery at the intersection of Coldwater and Ludwig Roads.
At age 16, Mary Arney first married Jeremiah Healey on 10 February 1847 in St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church in Fort Wayne, IN by Rev. Ed. Faller. Witnesses: Christian Leulage & Daniel Mahony.
It is not known how that marriage ended; whether they divorced; whether Jeremiah died; or whether he deserted Mary.
