Mary's death is seen in online databases as 27 Apr 1849, but she is listed in the above census, seemingly alive. Had she died after 1 June 1849, then the enumerator should have listed her and listed her in the mortality census as well. She is not found there. She doesn't appear in 1860 with the children.
