You didn't give any names or dates for any of the children, so I had to go to the census records and pull the information. Looks like you didn't see the 1880, when Mary was a widow and had another child number 10, Florence.

I needed names and birth dates for children to look for their death records, hoping to find their mother's maiden name.
