You have done a lot of research for my sake. Thank you.
The older Mary in 1860 is William's mother. I don't know her maiden name.
Family legend says she was Mary Elizabeth ? I don't know if that is true

children. I have followed them through the census and found their grave

died between the 1840 and 1850 census.
Thanks again for your help
