I don't know that we will ever be able to prove it 100% but here is why I think she belongs to Lucretia Taylor and not Martin's second wife.
I have not found a record of Lucretia's death which would be very helpful but most men at that time didn't wait long before marrying again so I assume she might have died as late as summer/ early fall of 1853- in childbirth????
Martin Evetts married Elizabeth Stewart Oct 6, 1853 so we wouldn't expect them to have a child until July of 1854.

Mary is 6 on Aug 18 1860. That puts her birth between
Aug 19, 1853 and Aug 18 1854. That would put her more in the range of Lucretia but possibly Elizabeths.

Mary is 18 on June 21 1870. That puts her birth between June 22, 1851 and June 21, 1852 which could only be Lucretia.

Mary is now the widow of Lewis Acree.
Mary is 26 on June 28 1880. That would put her birth between June 29 1853 and June 28 1854 too soon for her to have been Elizabeths except for the last months of the range if Elizabeth was already pregnant when she and Martin married- would tend to indicate Lucretia as the mother.
Sept 20 1883 a Mary T Acree marries G.F. Pearce in Stone Co,AR I believe this is her because in 1880 just one page away from her on 217C a Gabe F Pierce was living with B.B. Evetts.
In 1900 Mary, wife of Gabe Pearce gives her date of birth as either Jan or June (it's hard to read) of 1852 in AR. This would make her Lucretia's.
Can you confirm if Mary Pearce was Mary Evetts?
Her and Gabe had the following children with them in 1900:
Ellie (June 1884), Frank (Apr 1888), Ora ( Mar 1881) and James (Apr 1883) She says she has 5 of 8 children living so I would assume if it's Mary Evetts that the 5th child would be Sarah Acree who would have been about 21 and likely married.
Can you provide me with any additional information about Mary such as date of death etc?
