Mary Anderson65Of independent means
Mary Anderson's relationship to the family is not recorded but, since Mary Jane's and Dorothy Ann's birth certificates name their mother as "formerly Anderson", and a Jane Anderson was born to James and Mary in Sunderland at the right time, this is almost certainly Jane's mother.
