Mary Moore was the daughter of James Moore and Elizabeth Moore. All of her grandparents, (John, Mary, William & Agnes), were named Moore. She lived her whole life in Cecil Township.

She married the carpenter and farmer John McClure Smith on April 16, 1833 in Washington County, Pennsylvania. After their marriage they first located on the old Ramsey farm, near Canonsburg, where he worked at his trade of agricultural pursuits. In 1861 he bought, and in 1864 they moved upon the home farm of James Moore, in Cecil township.

They were members of the Seceder Church, and the parents of 12 children, six of whom died in 1847 in a Scarlet fever epidemic. In 1866 John was taken with gangrene and a limb was amputated. He died in 1886 and she followed him on July 7, 1889.
