  • Name STANTON Mary A. 
    Born May 1838  Adrian, Lenawee Co., MI Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2, 3
    • Her birth date is given on the 1900 census records.

      Birth record of her child Mary Elizabeth list mother's birthplace as Adrian, MI.

    Census 1880  Coe, Isabella, MI Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    • The 1880 census finds Mary living with her family in Coe, MI. Family members listed:

      Michael O'Boyle age 39
      Mary O'Boyle age 41
      Elizabeth O'Boyle age 13
      Jonathan O'Boyle age 10
      Nellie O'Boyle age 7
      Kittie O'Boyle age 2
    Census 1900  Mount Pleasant Ward 2, Isabella Co., MI Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
    • 1900 census finds the family still in Isabella county but living near Coe in Mt. Pleasant, MI.

      Family members listed are:

      Michail (Michael) Oboyle age 63
      Mary Oboyle age 62
      Catharine whom I belive to be Kittie age 21

      Five families down from Mary and Michael are Nellie and William Tobin. I believe this is Mary and Michael's daughter and son-in-law. The same William Tobin family Mary is living with in Seattle in 1920.
    Census 1910  Seattle Ward 3, King Co., WA Find all individuals with events at this location  [6
    • 1910 census finds Mary and her husband Michael in Seattle. I belive this is our Mary, sister of Elizabeth Stanton Behen for a variety of reasons.

      Michael and Mary's ages given in this census are correspond to the 1900 census.

      Michael and Mary's birth places correspond to the 1900 census.

      There are no other couples in the census who met the criteria.

      We know in 1912 Michael J. and Elizabeth Behen went to Seattle. Elizabeth's postcard states "pa is getting tired of visiting, we may go home soon". I take the term visiting as visiting relatives not just a sight seeing vacation. This would also explain the mystery man in the photo in Seattle with Michael, it must be Michael O'Boyle; Mary's husband.

      In 1920 we find Mary a widow living with Nellie Tobin and family. Mary's age and birth place still correspond to other census records. Nellie Tobin's age and birth would correspond with Mary's daughter Nellie Also Mary is listed as the mother-in-law to the head of the household William Tobin, making her the mother of William's wife Nellie.
    Census 1920  Seattle, King Co., WA Find all individuals with events at this location  [7
    • 1920 finds Mary a widow living with her daughter Nellie's family on January 8th. However, the next day a Mary O'boyle with the right age and place of birth is enumerated with Elizabeth Roberts. Elizabeth is listed as the daughter and her husband John W. listed as son-in-law. Mary is considered the head of the house hold and owner of the home. It is not uncommon for people to be counted twice. Both families are living in the city of Seattle.

      *For further explanation of why I think this is Mary Stanton O'Boyle see the 1910 census record.
    Died 4 Aug 1920  Seattle, King Co., WA Find all individuals with events at this location  [8
    • A search of the Washington Death index for Mary O'Boyle should be done by listing Stanton in the search box.

      Death certificate list spouse as Michael O'Boyle and age of death 83
    Buried Seattle, King Co., WA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • In the Calvary cemetery in Seattle there is listed a Mary A. O'Boyle. It is most likely Mary died in Seattle and was burried there. Her death certificate confirms the correct date and place for this burial to be Mary Ann.

    • A biographical sketch in the history of Isabella county Michigan of Mary's husband Michael O'Boyle provides the solid link between Mary and Peter Stanton. It was thought Elizabeth's sister Mary had married an O'Boyle because the picture of the Stanton sisters gives her married name as O'Boyle. The biographical sketch states

      "Michael O'Boyle married in Adrian, MI on January 21, 1867, to Mary, daughter of Peter Stanton, a native of Ireland. Mrs. O'Boyle was born in Adrian, MI." the passage continues with the following information:

      "She and her husband are the parents of Elizabeth, Johnnie, Nellie and Kittie. Johnnie died April 2, 1883, 13 years old. He was practicing gymnastics, and was accidently caught in a rope."

      The biography also states the family is Catholic.
