Mary Christina Mayne

Here is our first big mystery that is need of being solved.

Mary Christina Mayne/Main’s birth date is unknown. She is the daughter of John Jacob Mayne and Sarah Bopst. They had 11 children:
Joshua born 1820
David born 1821
Sarah born 1822
Sophia born 1824
John Jacob Jr born abt 1828
Mary Christina born abt 1828
Rosannah born abt 1832
Joseph born 1833
Susan born abt 1835
Eveline born 1836
Enos born 1841

Mary’s tombstone gives a date of birth as 5 February 1822, which puts her too close to Sarah. Her tombstone can be found at Find a Grave. Someone posted her date of birth as 5 February 1828 on Find a Grave, though gives no reason for it.

The 1850, 1870, and 1880 census records gives her a birth of about 1828. The next step will be to find the 1860 census, the census records for her brother John Jr and any church records for the family.

Hopefully this mystery can be solved and a good DOB can be found. If anyone has any more information please let me know.
