Tradition says that Mary (Mollie) was 6 months old when her Mother, Mary McKoin-Appleby left her husband and family for neighbor, Thomas Whitlock (who, also, divorced his wife). Appleby & Whitlock had adjoining farms.   Mary (Molly) was 2 years old when her parents divorced.  Mollie  was said to have been raised by her Aunt Minty.  Mollie attended the Boston School of Music in Massachusetts. She is said to have married a man named William Freeman, she met on the train, returning home to Missouri from Boston..  Said to have lived in Southern California (probably in Pasadena, after marriage. Was the name Freeman a coincidence, or could he have been the older son of her stepmother, Elizabeth Snow-Freeman. Also, had this same son been sent to Boston to accompany her home on the train?
