A survey of the Weekly Jeffersonian the week before and after her death did not yield a death notice or obituary.

Mary Ann was the 6th child of Asaph Whitney and Bethia Hopkins.

In the 1870 Census to the left, Mary Root is seen listed 3 lines below her daughter Julia (and husband David Douglas). From this chronology, it must be assumed that Mary died while living in Monroe County with her daughter Julia, and was sent back to Ft. Atkinson to be buried with her husband who predeceased her 19 years earlier.

Asaph's children as follows (Mary's siblings):

1. Olive Whitney
2. Zebina Whitney
3. Pyrena Whitney
4. Jerusha Whitney
Eunice Whitney
6. Mary Ann Whitney
7. Anna Whitney
8. Sarah Whitney
9. George Washington Whitney
10. James Marshal Whitney
11. Asaph K Whitney
