1900 Census with Owen McCusher / McCusker has birth Dec 1868 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M975-9PY

and Marriage to Owen McCusker in 1886 states her parents are Terence McKenna and Sarah, so that isn't a match

Found a birth source  for the correct person 

Birth Oct 30 1869 to Dennis and Mary - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F87Z-8BY

Another non matching Mary A McKenna.  There is a 1870 Census with a Mary A McKenna, age 1, but it is with Thomas and Sarah, both born in Ireland. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MFF3-81C  That Mary A was b Jan 1869,  died Feb 1871 in Warwick

This search returns quite a few sources for her father - marriage to Mary Steward 1858, children birth, death, etc

1870 census as mentioned

Found your Mary's death, but it is indexed as Maty and can't be edited. Death image shows name as Mary, age 21 , when she died Dec 16 1893 of Typhoid fever, so either the 1869 person died or the age is wrong on this death notice  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F8ZD-NF6

Dennis Death - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F8Z9-5FP
