Judith, When Mary married Edward Hayes Grove, they spelled it Vantries and on the 1880 census Harrison Township, Daviess Co., Mo. It said that she was b.in Mo.and her father was b. in Penn. and her mother was b. NC. their children at this point are Samuel 8, George 6,Jas W. 3, Sarah Elizabeth 1, and then in 1884 they was in Nettleton,Calwell Co.,Mo., that's where they had Mary Ann. Acording to my aunt, Sarah was half Native American blood and so I believe that Mary Jane might be the baby of the story that I posted. and i'm still digging .
