Mary is definitely not the mother of Lewis and Theresa, whose mother was born in Virginia (see 1880 census), so there should be no tick for them in Column 12 (indicating their mother is foreign born).  And given that the largest gap in years between the children is between Maggie and Leonard, it's probable that Maggie is also a child of John's first wife.  There is also the possibility that Leonard, and possibly Maggie, are Mary's children from her prior marriage (i.e., they're not John's).  We obviously need their marriage record.
