My great great grandma Mary

Mary Eliza Mincher was born 1 Mar 1874 in Crawford, Missouri(there are differing records, some say she was born in Caldwell County, and others say Adair County, the only consensus is she was born in Missouri) to John David Mincher and Harriet Ann “Hettie” Clark.
Mary was the 2nd of seven children.

Her siblings were:
Lucinda Elizabeth, the oldest; Francis, the only son; Ollie Rosa; Nora Isabelle; Catherine; and Lester Pearl

1880 Census:
The first census that Mary would have appeared would be 1880, but I have not been able to locate it.

Son Curtis is listed with his grandparents, JD & Hattie Mincher in Fort Smith, Sebastian Co., AR.
Daughter Josephine is still living in Steeleville listed as a servant of the Bass family.

Josephine had Tuberculosis, so they decided to move to Colorado hoping Josephine would feel better.

Mary & Albert had now moved from Crawford Co., MO to Fremont Co., CO.
They are living at Wolf Park Camp.
She is living with her husband Albert and her son Shelby. The rest of the children are married or living on their own.

1940 Census:

By 1940 Mary and Albert are now living in Canon City.
She is living with her husband Albert; her grandson Marvin is also listed with them.

Albert died in 1946 and Mary in 1967.
Mary's obituary contains many errors - She did not live in Pueblo for 46 years, she was about 46 when she moved to Pueblo. They weren't there long before moving to Fremont County. Also her sister Pearl's last name was Huey, not Hugh.
