Mary was the second daughter of Romii (Beale) and Will Overbey. She helped her sister Lina with the household chores and worked in the fields along side their siblings. Mary and Lina were skilled seamstresses. On 27 Jul 1930, Mary married Henry Winborne Barnes, son of Verbena Morgan and Henry T. Barnes from North Carolina. The family fondly knew him as "Runt". Mary and Runt had two children:
Shelton Winborne and Janice Jacquelyn.
Mary and Runt spent their married life in Newport News, Virginia.
After his death in 1968, Mary remained in their home for a number of years before moving to the Virginia Baptist Retirement Home in Culpeper, Virginia. She resided there until her death 28 May 2001, at the age of 96. She was the longest-lived of Romii and Will Overbey's 16 children.
At Mary's death, sister Hazel Crandall was the lone surviving Overby sibling. Hazel was 82 when she died five months later in October 2001.
Mary's other survivors were her daughter-in-law, Myrtle Barnes of Hampton, Virginia; son-in-law, Erwin Alexander of Suffolk, Virginia; four grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
Her husband Winborne and their children Shelton Winborne Barnes and Janice Barnes Alexander had preceded her in death. Mary was buried beside her husband in Park Lawn Memorial Park, Hampton, Virginia.
