The obituary recorded her maiden name as McQuary, but the correct spelling is believed to be McQueary. Looking at the 1900 census in Wolf Creek Precinct, Russell County, Kentucky, the surname was spelled McQuery. Her parents were recorded as Alford C and Martha A McQuery. She was recorded as Mary M born March 1888. She had brothers and sisters listed as: Amanda B born May 1892, Rosa F born June 1894, Isa P born June 1897, and Edward H born September 1899.
