After many months of research, we may have finally found Mary Jane's first daughter, Carrie B. Ware, with her first husband William M. Ware.
Still have not been able to prove that this is our Carrie, but the facts make us about 95% sure that she is. Her findagrave memorial is # 68831888, Carrie Belle Wier-born Aug 16, 1868 Wisconsin, died Dec 17, 1940 Camas Co, Wash. "daughter of William Wier". Unfortunately, it seems that her descendants have all since died.
Carrie's husband is Harry C. Paist, they married on March 27, 1899 in Kearney, Buffalo Co, Nebraska ).

**Thanks to Mary's great-granddaughter, Nancy, for her information, and research, on the 1872 divorce of Mary's first marriage, which also led to that document's stated attorney, Samuel Morgan Shortridge, as the uncle of William Ware.
