Mary was married at least three times. I have several reason to know that.
- She was married to George Cannon in 1889. My grandmother kept a picture of him, in which she called him Mary’s third husband.
- There is evidence of a son, Frank Hartman, born before Mary’s daughter Kate, who is my direct ancestor.
- Mary’s maiden name is Mahoney, but her marriage to Kate’s father, Michael Lydon (Lidon/Leydon) lists her name as Mary Hartman.
