CENSUS RECORDS: She was 5 in 1880, listed as Mary M. T. A, daughter of Julia Ann Fralix.
CENSUS RECORDS: She was 24 in 1900, mother of zero children.
CENSUS RECORDS: She was 34 in 1910, mother of 5 children with 4 still living.
CENSUS RECORDS: She was 45 in 1920.
VITAL RECORDS: Death certificate states she was the daughter of Thomas Terpin and Becky Jane Frolic and it was her son Thomas H McDaniel that gave the information.
In 1880 Julia Nelson Fraley says that Mary is her daughter on the census records. However, source believes that Julia was really her grandmother instead and that her mother was really Rebecca. Reasoning is because when Mary's daughter Corda dies, her obituary says her mother was Mary Groves and not Mary Fraley and Mary's husband Henry was the informant on the death certificate of Rebecca Fraley Groves. Just circumstanial but works very well. Also the 1900 census says that Rebecca was the mother of 3 children and source only knows of two for certain and Mary would make number three. Also another tidbit that makes this work is that in 1900 the census says that Rebecca and James have been married 26 years which would work for the birth date of Mary, but marriage records says they were married in 1881. Maybe for some reason they could not get married in 1874 and had to wait until 1881. Also in 1910, Mary and Henry are living by Edna and Green Bevel in New Madrid County and Edna is a daughter of Rebecca.
