    Notes 
    • Immigrated in 1840 and had10 children, of whom 6 survived according to the 1900 census.

      There is a Mary Tobin, aged 24 on the 1860 census (born in Ireland), and a Mary Tobin aged 30 on the 1870 census (born in Ireland). In both cases she's a servant living in a house (Oscar Cobb in 1860, Chas. Evans in 1870), with no children. The age in the first case would be about right, but there's no clear way to know whether it's her. See under her son Thomas, however, for why this might be her.

      In the 1880 and 1900 census she is living at 272 DeWitt street, a house she is said to own in the 1875 NYState census.

      In the 1892 New York State census (see at familysearch.org) in the 22nd Ward of Buffalo she is 76, born in Ireland, living with Sarah Tobin (aged 38) and Anna Tobin (aged 5). All are "alien," not citizens.

      Living with her in 1900, along with her widowed daughter Sarah Abrams, is a grand-daughter, Anna Tobin, aged 12 (born June 1887). Could this be her son Thomas's daughter Anna--though that would mean she was counted twice in this census?

      The grave does not give dates, just her age at death, 82. If the grave is her AND if that is her in the 1900 census, someone's dates are off by a few years. I suspect the grave is a couple of years young.
