Family oral history (my aunt Barbara Gruwell Pumphrey) has Mary dying from abortion complications. She had become pregnant at a time the family couldn't afford another child. Her husband and she both agreed to go forward with the abortion. Unfortunately, Mary didn't survive the process.

Husband: Thomas E. Williams (married July 7, 1898)

Two children: Edna A. and Gertrude L.
