Birth: Sep. 21, 1805
Blount County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jan. 2, 1880
Greene County
Missouri, USA

Mary Hackney was the daughter of John Hackney, Jr. and Jane Rogers. Her grandparents, John Hackney, Sr. and Rebecca Laughlin Hackney, were among the original settlers of the Newbury (Quaker) community in Blount County, Tennessee, now known as Friendsville. She was a descendant of George Harlan and Elizabeth Duck Harlan, English/Irish Quakers who emigrated to America in 1687 and settled first in northern Delaware before moving to Chester County, Pennsylvania; and Samuel and Mary Bancroft Heald, Quakers from Cheshire County, England, who were received at Philadelphia meeting October 3, 1702. She married Samuel Austin Lee August 21, 1823, in Blount County and they migrated to Polk/Greene Counties ca. 1835. (For a list of their children, see biography of Samuel Austin Lee in Robberson Prairie Cemetery). Her brother, Hugh Hackney, ran a gristmill in Greene County. She died 2 January, 1880, at the home of her son, Ishmael, near Elwood, in Greene County, Missouri. In a letter written in Vernon County, Missouri dated March 10, 1880, from her daughter Susannah McLain to her daughter Louisa Thompson, Susannah said this: "It is indeed hard to give mother up as dead and have no mother here to feel for us as no one else can feel. But the thought that she is at rest is consoling. She had lived a long time and seen a great trouble. It is all over now with her. She came back to our house after you saw her last and stayed just four weeks I believe. It was a great pleasure to have her there." In another letter written in Polk County, Missouri dated July 2, 1880, from her daughter Jane Brient to Louisa Thompson, Jane said this: "The camp meeting will be the third Sunday in August. We expect to have Brother Winton to preach Mother's funeral sometime during the meeting".
