Please help me learn more about Mary Elizabeth Ames as a resident of Fort Wayne, Indiana. In 1914, in connection with Mary Elizabeth's application for a widow's pension, two Fort Wayne residents, Timothy Livksy, age 67 in 1914, and Charles Karbaum, age 59 in 1914, stated that they knew "said claimant before she became of marriageable age; we knew her when she was known and recognized as a young and unmarried girl, Miss Mary E. Ames, and that we further testify that claimant was never married prior to her marriage to John Musser on or about December 3rd, 1878." Mary Elizabeth's future husband, John F. Musser, is listed in the Fort Wayne city directory in 1878. The couple was married in Allen County, Ohio, in late 1878.
