I really find it difficult to believe this is Mary's son given her age in 1857 (and the gap between Sarah's birth and his).  But then, whose son is he?

Both of Mary's parents were deceased by 1830, so the older woman is not Mary's mother.  John's father had died in 1828, and it appears his widowed mother, Lucy, was living with them, which also explains the older boys, who were John's younger brothers.
