The Mary listed on the 1900 Census is my Grandmother, she married Richard Henderson Hawkins and had 11 children, the youngest being my father William Harold Hawkins, and Elizabeth is my Great grandmother. These two are listed in my baby book. Elizabeth is Mary Elizabeth and according to my baby book was married to John Andrew Belschner (who I have not found in the records).
I hope this is of help to you.
