"Fora" should probably be "Foor," which raises an interesting question.  Is Edward FOOR Mary's son from a prior marriage?  I suspect so, which means FOOR is Mary's married name, not her maiden name, which raises another interesting question.  Is Susan MITLER Mary's mother?  In which case, Mary's maiden name may be MITLER unless Susan married again after Mary was born.  Nancy FENSTERMACHER is John's mother; Jacob FENSTERMACHER is John's step-father.  The fact that Mary is six to eight years older than John (see her age in 1880) strongly suggests that it was a second marriage for her.  Note that if Susan MITLER is Mary's mother, Susan is too old to be Edward's mother, so Edward could not be Mary's brother, but is exactly the right age to be her first child.
