  • Notes 
    • Sometime between the death of her husband John McGrath in 1874 and 1881, Mary McGrath [nee Watterson] changed her name of Love. There is no record of her remarrying anyone by the surname of Love. ?Why did she change her married surname.

      Her children also changed their surnames from McGrath to Love.

      On her daughter Jane's marriage registration (1874) and also Jane's death registration (1884), it states that Mary's MS was McGrath. On her daughter Elizabeth's marriage (1878) and death registrations (1915) it states that her MS was Waterson. Mary's own death registration (1893) states that her MS was Waterson and names her parents as those listed on this tree. There is substantive evidence in the records that Mary, her husband and her children were actually "McGRATH" and that she changed her name to LOVE after her husband's death in April 1874. See notes on her children for further explanation.
