Mary married Williamson Reece Nix September 23,1886. This was a year after Williamson lost his first wife Emma A. Yates during child birth...Emma died a day after her child. Mary apparently made sure Williamson was buried next to his first wife and first son.

Mary had four sons with Williamson, Ocea Lee,William Reece,Alonzo Veich and Dothan Henry.

Mary married John Thomas Hassell on February 22,1925. She was married to John until 1942 when he passed away.
