Notes:  I have determined that Mary Anne's actual middle name was Anne because that is the name recorded on her official English marriage certificate and how she herself wrote her name three times on an Official Return of Birth on 20 Feb 1922.  Mary Anne's middle name was not Ann even though that is how it was recorded on many documents and her headstone.
Mary Anne's place of birth was established from her birthplace entries in the 1871 English census.

Per the 1920 census, Mary Anne immigrated to the U.S. in 1900 and was an Alien and British citizen in 1920.  She reported that her mother and father were both born in Wales and spoke Welch as their native tongue.

The maiden name of Mary Anne's mother may have been O'Niel or Jeffery.  This is because (1) O'Niel appears on her death certificate and (2) her grandson Wilfred said "she was related to Jefferies, the prizefighter.  Possibly a second or third cousin."  Jim Jefferies' family surname was Jeffery.
