Mary Jane Bynum was born 1846 in Edgecombe County, NC to Col. Robert Bynum and his wife Elizabeth Ann Harrison. On Sept 8, 1869 she married Capt. Howell Gray Whitehead, Jr., distinguished veteran of the Civil War. The couple would have 5 known children:

* Robert Bynum Whitehead (1870-1925)
* Lucy J. Clark ANDERSON (1872-1946)
* Howell Gray Whitehead, III (1874-1956)
* William B. Whitehead (1879-1906)
* James Samuel Whitehead (1881-1952)

Mary was widowed in 1887 when her husband of 18 years passed at age 48. The following year, on Nov 4, 1888, the 42-year old widow married the widower Dr. William Staton Anderson, becoming his 2nd wife. Sadly the marriage was short-lived as Mary died less than a year into the marriage, passing on October 9, 1889.
