Mary Florence was born in 1860 in Tennessee, the firstborn child of George and Nancy Jane Runyan. The story of her family life and married life is told in the biographies of her parents and husband. In brief, however, she moved with her family to Arkansas around 1871, and they settled in the Bennetts Bayou region of the Ozarks, on the northern tributaries of the White River. She was married to a widower called WT Mantooth, who was her second cousin. They lived on a homestead by the North Fork of the White River, where they probably ran a trading post for people traveling on the river, as well as having a small farm. Late in 1888 they sold the farm to her parents, and she and WT went to Indian Territory, where they participated in the run of 1889. The next year they sold their claim and moved to Johnsonville, where they opened a general store. Mary never had children, so she probably worked in the store as well. In 1891 Maryís family sold the land in Arkansas to a trading company and moved to the Johnsonville area, where they settled on farms. Over the next few years a great many of her cousins moved to Johnsonville and the surrounding area, as did her husbandís sisters and son and their families. Mary died without issue in 1899, at age 38.
