Hayden family history states that Mary was the daughter of Jacob "Kentucky Jake" Hayden (1783-1874) born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania and buried in Lone Jack Cemetery in Jackson County, Missouri.

From (unknown) newspaper obituary:
"Dowell-Mrs. Mary F. Hayden Dowell was born in Mead County, Kentucky, December 17, 1823; died at Chillicothe, Mo., January 26, 1917. She was united in marriage to E. R. Dowell, Sr. in 1837. To this union seven children were born. The father and husband has been dead fourteen years.

In the death of Mrs. Dowell the community has lost one of its best women. She was its faithful character, devoted to her church of which she had been a member since early childhood. She was always kind, always Christ-like, always gentle and true. God seemed to have preserved her to this ripe old age that she might scatter flowers of sympathy and acts of kindness to those who came in touch with her."
