Birth:  1 May 1849, Cass Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA
Death:  15 Mar 1900, Cass Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA

Birth said to be:  29 Jan 1850
Death:  10/20 Jul 1927, Huntingdon Co., PA

Mother:  Catharine __?__

It appears Mary's birth and death dates were taken from a tombstone and that Mary was lying about her age because Mary, d/o James & Catharine HEETER, was born in 1844/5.  Either that, or our subject has been attached to the wrong parents.

Mary's middle initial is I, not F (see next source).  If Mary's age in the 1860 census is correct (see her parents' page), then she is here fibbing about her age (she should be 34).  And if Mary was older than Winfield, she would certainly have lied about her age when he was courting her, most likely carrying that lie to her grave.

2b.  1880 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #5 of 37):  Cass Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA, p. 249A, PN 5, SD 7, ED 189, 42/49, enumerated 5 Jun 1880, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1880.  I checked the page image, and Mary's middle initial is definitely I, not (remotely) F.  Listed two households from Elijah CHILCOAT; and, in the other direction, nine households from Amon GREENLAND, who is living with Moses GREENLAND.
