In the marriage transcriptions of Queens and Lunenburg Cos. transcribed by Don Shankle and published on the Lunenburg Co. GenWeb page, she is named Ann Mary Corkum.

She is among those enumerated on the 1871 census of Rawdon South, Hants county, in the mortality schedule. She died in March 1871, of "Senile Debility." [Source: 1871 Nova Scotia Census Enumeration image online at] Her son, Edward lives at dwelling 68, family 73, presumably in Ann's house, as she left it to him.
