Here is the only family I know of in 1880 in Carbon County PA with a daughter named Mary and being 5 years of age, as well as 2 other families in nearby counties:

Franklin Twp., Carbon County, PA
1880 Census E.D. 123, Page 28
ZEIGENFUS family:
John ...... 42 PA PA PA Laborer
Sarah ..... 36 PA PA PA
Harrison .. 10 PA PA PA
Clarra ..... 9 PA PA PA
John ....... 8 PA PA PA
Mary ....... 5 PA PA PA
Susanna ... 83 PA PA PA Widow

West Rockhill, Bucks County, PA
1880 Census E.D. 162, Page 11
ZIEGENFUSS family
Oliver H. . 41 PA PA PA Cigarmaker
Mary ...... 25 PA PA PA
John ....... 8 PA PA PA
Joseph ..... 7 PA PA PA
Elizabeth .. 6 PA PA PA
Mary ....... 5 PA PA PA
Emma ....... 3 PA PA PA
Catherine .. 1 PA PA PA
Elizabeth . 67 PA PA PA Widow

Johnsonville, Northampton County, PA
1880 Census E.D. 103, Page 32
ZIEGENFUSS family
Andrew .... 25 PA PA PA Farmer
Elizabeth . 26 PA PA PA
Mary ....... 5 PA PA PA
Gilbert .... 4 PA PA PA
Frank ...... 3 PA PA PA
Daniel ..... 1 PA PA PA
Peter P. .. 74 PA PA PA Unkle, retired farmer

Since the last name is the original version of SIGAFOOS, these 3 Marys may not be your Mary. I have a rather thorough listing of 1880 families only in Carbon, Bucks and Northampton counties of PA. These 3 counties were the most populous of the Sigafoos and Ziegenfuss families, but others are also found in Lehigh, Berks, Philadelphia, Monroe, Schuylkill, Westmoreland, Indiana, Jefferson and Lawrence counties which I haven't researched yet.

You may want to try your own search for a 5 year old Mary Sigafoos in the 1880 Pennsylvania Soundexes.

Would her marriage record include her parents' names?
