Mary Ellen Grant was born May 16, 1857 in Peoria Co., Illinois, and in 1869 moved with the family to Crawford County, Kansas. Apparently she was counted twice in the 1875 Kansas state census, once with her parents in Grant Twp., Crawford County, and once as a servant in the home of A. Eldred, physician, in Osage Mission, Neosho County. The town of Osage Mission (renamed St. Paul in 1895) is 10 miles west of her parent's farm and is the site of a catholic mission to the Osage Indians founded by Rev. John Schoenmakers, S. J., in 1847. Officially it is St. Francis of Jerome parish; the church at Greenbush in Crawford County is a subsidiary.

She was married to Owen Riordan on July 1,1876, by Rev. John Schoenmakers at Osage Mission.
