Notes:  Mary Ann was a baptized member of the Pine Creek Reformed Presbyterian Church in Hampton Township in May 1843 (Source 789).  Later she became David P. Williams' second wife.  Based upon the birth date of her oldest son, she probably married in 1849 [David's first wife Mary died in June 1847], when David was about 33 years old and she was about 18.

  Name Conflict Analysis:  I conclude that Mary Ann's maiden name was McCaw (rather than McCall) based upon (1) Source 788, (2) Source 789, and (3) the 1860 Census (Source 102) wherein Mary Ann gave the middle name McCaw to one of her sons.  Also, a McCaw female married William Williams — proving that a close relationship existed between the Williams and McCaw families.  Further, Sources 105+790 in combination, plus secondary Source 791 also support this conclusion.

Although her son Theodore's (1) prison record (Source 109) and (2) death certificate (Source 15) both record Mary Ann's maiden name as McCall (note that her grandson Simon was the informant for the death certificate), I conclude that Theodore misunderstood or forgot the name McCaw — and told his son Simeon the similar-sounding name McCall.
