According to the 1850 and 1860 censuses Donald and Mary lived in Blue Mounds, Dane co, Wisconsin.

They were neighbors of Mary MacKenzie McClure's parents, Benjamin MacKenzie and Isabelle McCleod.

In the census of 1880, Mary is listed as a widow living with her son Chester A. McClure, age 19, in Ridgeway, Iowa co., Wisconsin. Instead of being 'at Home' she is listed as a widow and a Farmer.

The census of 1900 shows Mary McClure living in Papillion, Sarpy, Nebraska, with her widowed daughter Christy A. McClure Fisher. Mary is aged 81, and Christy is 59. Both women are listed as Widowed.
