Mary was a very quiet, private person and largely responsible for maintaining the home front, as Andy was away so much of the time.
It is said in the family that it was from Mary's mother, who was part Indian and known to trade with Indians, that Andy obtained his "mad-stone", when he and Mary Ellender married.
These were stones most commonly found in the stomach of a albino deer. Mad-stones were believed to be the only cure for rabies, other than amputation, and for snake bites. Much like a prized heirloom, the mad-stone was handed down to Andy's sons, Lee and Charley after he died. They only needed to cut off a portion of the mad-stone for the medicinal use.
Mary kept house, and when Andy was at home, she always had to prepare large meals, as her husband loved to visit downtown, and would very often bring someone home to eat lunch and continue their visiting, so Mary never knew how many would be seated at her table.
In their later years, they moved from their country home into town. Their house in town still stands, and was finally sold out of the family.
