     She was probably the female under age 10 listed in the household of her father, Henry Mayo, in the 1820 Federal Census of Burlington, Chittenden Co., Vermont.13 She was probably the female age 15 to 20 listed in the household of her father in the 1830 Federal Census of Burlington, Chittenden Co., Vermont, though she was actually only 14.14 She was probably the female age 20 to 30 listed in the household of her father in the 1840 Federal Census of Burlington, Chittenden Co., Vermont.15
     Mary married Henry Wadhams Catlin, son of Guy Catlin and Melinda Wadhams, on 10 Aug 1840 in Burlington, Vermont, with Rev. J. K. Convese officiating.7,8,9
     Mary and Henry appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Burlington, Chittenden Co., Vermont, enumerated 23 Aug 1850, reporting real estate valued at $30,000. Their children Henry and Charles were listed as living with them, as her father, Henry Mayo. Also listed were Lucy B. Adams, age 38; William G. Catlin, a clerk age 19, probably a relative of Henry; James Gilooly, age 25; Louisa Roberts, age 17; and Catherine Larkin, presumably boarders or servants.16
     A visitor wrote that Burlington "has some of the finest private residence, especially in the picturesque beauty of their location, to be found in this section of the country." Henry and Mary's home was among nine described as "among the finest I have ever seen."17
     Mary left a will dated 24 Oct 1855 stating she was of Burlington, Chittenden Co., Vermont, in which she left all her real and personal estate to her husband, in trust for her children. He was to maintain and educate the children from the income or proceeds of sale. The estate was to be divided equally among all her living children at such time as her husband should decide. He had complete freedom to manage the estate, including selling property. He was also named executor of the estate.18
