Mary Ann Crane was the daughter of Jesse and Joanna (Hall) Crane. Her date of birth is given variously. Her age at death as inscribed on her gravestone indicates a date of birth of December 20, 1817. In Ellery Bicknell Crane's Genealogy of the Crane Family, Vol. 2 (1900), p. 280, her date of birth is given as January 18, 1819 which is consistent with her age as given in the 1850 and 1860 censuses. In her granddaughter's family Bible, her date of birth was entered as January 19, 1818 which is consistent with her age as given in the 1870 census and is within one month of the data on her tombstone.

Mary's family moved from Connecticut to Elkhart County, Indiana, and in 1836, bought land in Middlebury Township about four miles from the Marine family farm. About two years later, on January 29, 1838, Mary married Asa Marine in Elkhart, Indiana. In 1846 they moved to Porter county, Indiana and settled on a farm in Morgan Township. Mary passed away there in the spring of 1889. She and Asa had had eight children.
