Named for her Great-grandmother, Great-aunt & Aunt Mary Stevenson; one of at least 10 siblings. Her parents, the Stevensons, were some of the 1st settlers in Richland Twp. & the 1st Methodist Church in Fairfield Co. was built on their property there.

She married Samuel Peters on 11-28-1795 in Baltimore Co., MD. They relocated from MD to Fairfield Co., OH on 4-30-1812. They had 13 known children. They settled north of West Rushville on Rushcreek on Snake Run. Five years later they bought land south of Royalton that was owned by Benjamin Haas in 1900 (where the Haas-Peters Cemetery is now located & where they are buried). They were farmers.

Their children settled in the Amanda, Fairfield Co. & Pickaway Co. areas. Their sons & grandsons became Congressman, Judges, lawyers, bankers, & successful businessmen, many relocating to Marion & Sandusky, OH to seek their fortunes.

Their son Stevenson Peters lived near East Ringgold in Pickaway Co. on his old family farm where a Grand Reunion took place in 1882 & the remaining 11 of 13 siblings came together for the 1st time in over 50 yrs. Stevenson's son took over the home after his death through the early 1900s.

In 1929, 47 yr. after the Grand Reunion another huge reunion took place at another grandson's in Columbus with 163 family members from OH, IL, etc. Mary & her husband's descendants formed The Peters Family Association around this time.
