Mary was born on January 17, 1859. She married Lucius Booth Cannon and came to Arizona in 1885. They lived in the Santa Maria District in Yavapai County on the ranch made famous by Clarence Budington Kelland's story, "This is My Son."

She later moved to Congress Junction. An infant son died on December 11, 1892, and six-year-old boy, Lucius Cannon, Jr., died on December 22, 1892. Other children were Mrs. E. D. Goodman and F. M. Cannon. Mary was living with her daughter in Huntington Beach, California, when her husband died in 1938.

She celebrated her 90th birthday there a few years before her death.
