There was another Mary Ann Driver born 1854. The 1881 Census shows Mary A age 40 making her birth year 1841. So
she would be old enough to have Harriet & Hester. I think
Annie would have died earlier. I will go through the cemetery records here.

How do you think that William B. & Olivia might have been connected. They were the grandparents of John/Ellen Jordan according to some researchers. There was a George 1846 and Letitia 1850 living with them on the 1851 census! I thought that these were the children of James. They already had a son George born 1835, so this George 1846 was most likely a grandchild or Nephew. Since Letitia died in 1848, these are most likely the children. Mark that married Jane Dibble was their son, and he went to Manitoba. A cousin Mark went west with William G/Mary Anderson. And their daughter Margaret married Charles Kennedy, another connection to George/Mary Kennedy who I think was a brother to William G./Mary Anderson.

James had a Letitia b 1848 who married a Dewitt (A possible marriage) and lived until 1913, and then later had a child Latitia b 1871 with Mary Ann Driver. A little odd. But he did not raise the first Letitia.

You have confirmed my thinking, but I think there is a close relationship between William B & Olivia. Now, I did invent George I, since there was a George II/Mary Kennedy.
We already have a William G/Mary Anderson as a brother to George II, so I think William B/Olivia with son Mark could have been a cousin. The father of William B/Olivia is John (John George) & Nancy (Ann) Grant, and I have set him up as a brother to George I. With their son Mark going out west with the others, I would have to think it was quite a close relationship.

This is great!! Hope others out there that see this can give us their input.
