The 1910 Census of Pueblo Colorado seems to be featuring Mary. She is shown as Mary Haggerty age 63, a widow with five of six children surviving. She was born in North Carolina. With her is Edward 28, born in Kansas. Granddaughter Mary is 10 and born in Colorado. The younger Mary's parents were born in Missouri and Kansas. The "clencher" is that her brother was living with her. He was Calvin Gambel age 53, bornin North Carolina.

Mary's age in the 1910 census is consistent with the readings in the 1900 and the 1880 census. It is not supported by the original profile posting for her birth date. The birth of Mary Gambill is more likely 1847. By this date (and age one in 1850) we can recognize that Mary's parents were William J. and Nancy Gambill of North Carolina.

The 1850 Census of Ashe, North Carolina gives Wm Gambill age 24, Nancy Gambill 26. Their children were Martha J. 4, Burgys 2, and Mary J. 1. All were born in North Carolina.

The 1860 census of Ashe North Carolina gives William Gambill 33 with wife Zilda age 33. Jane 10 is our profile subject. But, it appears William has a new wife since 1850, when it was Nancy. Robert Gambill age 30 is next door, along with Martha Gambill age 50.

The 1930 census of Moffat Co. Colorado shows James Haggerty, the 43 year old son of James and Mary J. Haggerty. The son as born in Missouri and his parents in Ireland and North Carolina. Next door is Center Gambill age 70 and his widowed sister Mary Haggerty age 80. Because Calvin Center Gambill is shown as Sinter Gambill in the 1850 census, where William Gambill is head of household, we can be sure that William was Nancy's father.
