  • Notes 
    • Numerous family trees on Ancestry have Mary's father's name as James Bruce which is incorrect. James was her grandfather, the father of her father Archibald Bruce.

      One family tree on Ancestry has Mary's DOB as: 28 May 1803 in Peeblesshire, Scotland which again is incorrect. She was baptised on the 16 May 1802 and is likely to have been born just prior to that date as babies were christened quite soon after birth.

      In the 1841 census, Mary's age is given as 35 yet she was born in 1802 which would make her 39 years old. She is also listed in the column for foreign born or whether born in Ireland or England.

      The family arrived in NY on the 03 July 1849. On board the Commodore were the following:
      Alexander aged 51 Farmer
      Mary aged 46
      John aged 24
      Archibald aged 23
      Christian aged 22
      Nicholas aged 21
      Mary aged 19
      William aged 20
      James aged 15
      Elizabeth aged 13
      Alexander aged 10
      Euphemia aged 3
      Margaret aged 2.
