  • Notes 
    • "John Sterns, brother in law of Mary, told me that the father of the three children was a man named Coleman. They lived as husband and wife for a number of years but he always managed to be out of town when the Preacher made his rounds. A fight with Mary Jane's father, Joseph Biddle made him leave her and Joseph would not let her raise her children under the name Coleman. James told me about his sister who died as a very small child. Mary's death record in Pittsburgh Court House #3312 W. Elizabeth PA, dated Sept. 3, 1903, gives her age, death cause as old age, date of death, that she was unmarried and was buried in Lobb's Cemetery, W. Elizabeth." (Notes of Albert Gundy, date unknown).

      Elizabeth Herald obituary: "Biddle, Miss Mary Jane, 75, died Monday, August 18, 1902; well known resident of West Elizabeth; Buried at Lobbs Cemetery
