I am searching for information on Mary Isabella YATES (1843-1900) from Mt. Vernon, Jefferson, Illinois. She was married to Walter Turnbull Rough, and is listed on the 1880 and 1900 census as "Mary S. Turnbull".
I am searching to find Mary's parents. Thank you for any information you might have!
I found a marriage record for a Mary S. YATES to W.F. ROUGH on 23-Mar-1862 in Audrain, MO.
In the 1860 census for Loutre, Audrain Co, MO there is this family:
YATES, Samuel age 49 b. KY
Nancy age 54 b. KY
John age 18 b. KY
Mary age 16 b. KY
Ann age 14 b. KY
Chas. age 12 b. KY
Nancy age 10 b. KY
Elizabeth age 7 b. KY
Um, I'm looking at the 1880 and 1900 censuses for Mt. Vernon, Jefferson, IL and she appears with Walter and children as "Mary S. Rough" Both censuses say she was born in KY. The 1900 specifically says March 1844 for her birth date. The number of years married is listed as 46m but that has to be wrong as it would make her 10 yrs old when she married.
According to the 1870 census their oldest daughter, Mary, was born in MO.
