She actually died as an Erickson, but she was 58 when they married and she had no children with him. She may have died in Adair Co., rather than Putnam. John Erickson was her 2nd husband. Her first was Jacob Lewis. She was the pldest child of Jacob R. Young and Elizabeth Stumpf's 11. If you search for her death certificate, it's transcribed as Mary Eickson. Her son's handwriting was nearly unreadable.
