Came to California with her family over the Great Plains. She met John at the Washington mine, and they were married at the Washington mine on October 12, 1878. The ceremony was conducted by Justice of the Peace Samuel W. Carr.
Their ranch was at the intersection of Bear Valley Road and Mount Gaines Road where they built a large nine-room house east of a small stream that ran through the property. An artisan well supplied the water for the house. A large barn (still standing in 2002), blacksmith shop and harvester shed were also built on the ranch. Mining was in John's blood and he left the animal husbandry and farming to their sons.
All nine children were born on the ranch, attended Quartzburg School and lived into adulthood.
By 1921, the entire family had moved away from Mariposa county. John and Mary owned an operated the old Tuolumne Hotel on Main Street in Merced. It was there on February 13, 1922 that John, as had his father and brothers, died of the dreaded Miners Consumption.
After his death, Mary retired to a small home on 19th Street in Merced. Her eldest son John William, his wife and son lived across the street. Her daughter, Charlotte and her family also lived in the neighborhood.
Mary enjoyed being in Merced near many of her grandchildren. While working in her garden she fell a broke her hip, an injury from which she never fully recovered. Mary pass away on August 9, 1935, while visiting her daughter Lulu and husband on their farm near Strathmore (Tulare county). Most of her children were at her bedside at the time of her death.
