Possibly born in November 1815 based upon a November 1905 Boston Globe newspaper item from North Anson, Maine, mentioning her recent 90th birthday. However, her age at death on her death record card (92 years, 11 months, 23 days) yields a calculated date of birth of 11 November 1816.

May have been born in Somerset county, although her death record card gives her place of birth as West Waterville (now Oakland), Maine.

She married first, Reverend Thomas J. Oliver on 20 January 1837 in Fairfield, Somerset county, Maine (Miss Mary Hersom of Fairfield and Mr. Thomas J. Oliver of Starks): https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L9NZ-YJ8?i=61&cat=73110

Reverend Oliver died on 18 September 1859 at West Waterville according to the death notice in the 30 September 1859 Zion's Advocate (Portland, Maine), p. 3, col. 4 ("In West Waterville, 18th inst., Rev. Thomas Oliver, aged about 50 years."), and the 1860 federal census mortality schedule for Waterville.

Likely married (2) Andrew Herbert [memorial# 183062275] in October 1860 at Waterville, Kennebec, Maine; and, (3) Anson Bates [memorial# 111302900] in September 1868, probably at Waterville, Maine.

She later married, at Oakland, Kennebec, Maine, the Reverend Ezekiel Gilman Page, also a Free Will Baptist minister. They are shown together in the same family household in the 1903 Oakland, Maine town census as Ezekiel G. Page and Mary (Hersom) Page:

and she is shown as E.G. Page's widow on her Maine death record card.

Mary is buried with her first husband, Reverend Oliver, according to the Nathan Hale Cemetery Collection record cards at FamilySearch (Mary wife of Rev. E.G. Page / former wife of Rev. Thomas J. Oliver): https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L9FQ-H9NR-F?i=1434&cc=2241461 // https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-89FQ-H9C1-P?i=803&cc=2241461

Reverend Page is buried with his first wife, Mary G. Bursley.
