Mary arrived in Chicago from Ohio in 1826 with her parents and younger siblings Jane, Susan, and John. In 1827 they moved to the Illinois River Valley where her father had staked a claim.

She married Archibald Clybourn on 9 June 1829 in Tazewell County. Archibald moved to Chicago from Virginia in 1823. He began as an Indian trader with a little store in the woods, and in a few years became a contractor for the government selling supplies to the military posts in the Northwest Territory. After he settled in Chicago he opened a butcher shop on a large scale, the first slaughterhouse in Chicago, and was a pioneer in introducing the system of packing meats which made Chicago one of the greatest livestock markets in the world.

Mary and Archibald had ten children, and three who died in childhood. Archibald died in 1872. Mary died in Chicago at the home of her daughter, Mary Virgina (Mrs. J.C.Parkes), at the age of 92 years.
