Little is known about Mary at this time. There is an 1829 Church record in which she was examined for admission to Communion. She is referred to as Molly.

We have records of five children born to Mary and John. Three are listed here at Find-A-Grave. One is "Missing" at this time: Robert Donaldson, who is believed to have had no children.

Mary's nickname, Molley, is used in marriage applications for two of her children. Her burial in the Kittanning Cemetery is documented in the Mechling work.

Family "elders" long believed that she was born in Ireland--if not there, in PA and that if she was not Irish born, that her parents were. I only put this here as family lore and perhaps as a research clue if someone chooses to pursue it.
