An alternate spelling of Mary's surname is Jefferys per one transcription of the record of her first marriage.3

Mary's first marriage was to W. W. Burrows, son of W. H. Burrows, on 13 April 1884 in Calhoun County, West Virginia.1 They were later divorced on a date I've not yet learned.1

Her second marriage was to William David "Will" Summers, son of Joseph Summers and Martha Ellen Matthew, on 29 April 1900 in Calhoun County, West Virginia. R. P. Fitch was the officiating minister at the ceremony, which was held at the mouth of Daniel's Run. Both the groom and bride were recorded as "divorced."2

Mary and Will were divorced before 1920. The 1920 federal census shows Mary living in the household of her nephew and having a marital status of divorced.4
