Mary Drollinger (or Drollinar or Drolinear or Dralinger) was born in November 1849 to Jacob and Catherine Drollinger. It is difficult tracing this family, as the name has been spelled so many different ways, even in the censuses.

Mary was married to Isaac Hampton Smith on Dec. 25, 1875, in Philadelphia, PA.

She and Isaac lived with her widowed mother, Catharine Drollinger, in Philadelphia for the early years of their marriage, and they are shown as living in Philadelphia in the 1900 Census. At some later time, they moved to Haddon Heights, New Jersey.

Mary and Isaac had four children: Jacob Grayson Smith, Howard Smith and Howard's twin sister, Kathrine O. Smith, who apparently died quite young, and Oscar Smith, who died as a small child. Kathrine was still alive, age 22, at the time of the 1900 Census. The Census states that Mary had 4 children, but that only 3 were living in 1900; Oscar had apparently died sometime between the 1890 census and the 1900 census.

Mary died in early September, 1938, and is buried with her husband, Isaac, in Fernwood Cemetery near Philadelphia. Their son, Jacob Grayson Smith, is buried in the same plot.

Mary is my husband's paternal Great Grandmother.
