[NI183434] Age at death from tombstone: 90y 7m 5d. (Dittig). Swan: The 1900 census of her dau Margaret in Pottawatomie, KS, gives Mary's B-Pl as , while Kansas history [Anon., 1890] says she was native of MD. Since Christian & Mary moved from MD when Margaret was an infant, she might have always assumed that her mother was b in the state in which she herself was raised. For this reason, I'm indicating MD as Mary's B-Pl, but must note that is in some doubt. Fred Ickes wrote, & Bud Betts confirms from census record in Bedford Library, that Mary was living with her dau Magdalene Emerick & family in 1860. Mary should be identifiable in IA census of 1870 (but was not living with David & her dau Margaret). Her dau Margaret's obit said she was to be bur Stratton Cem, south of Laclede, "beside the graves of her husb & mother". When I visited graveyard, it was named Polly Creek Cem. It is 4 mis east & 5 mis north of Wamego. Mary's tombstone reads MARY MOCK DIED Sept. 8, 1877 AGED 90 yrs 7ms 5 ds. The implied b-date is 3 Feb 1787, not May 1786 that I had originally from some family source, nor June 1787 implied in Kansas Co history which had her death wrong by 1 yr. Her age was given as 66 yrs in 1850 census in Bedford Co, indicating birth yr of 1783/84.
