Martha gives her age at "abt 51". She states that she has given birth to 6 children, 5 of which are still living. William and Martha both state they have been married to each other 30 years, which makes their marriage date abt 1870.

On the death certificates of sons Robert and Willie Simon, she is shown as Mattie Hutchinson (Hutcherson). On the death certificate of daughter, Tinie May, and the one for her son, Horace Bickley, she is instead listed as Mattie Smith. Could she have remarried after her husband William Bickley died in 1907, perhaps accounting for the inconsistent names.
