Michael Francis left Benton with his brother Thomas Dillon McKenna immediately after the wedding bound for the California Gold Rush and returned for Mary Ann 15 years later to bring her to San Francisco. They had five children in 10 years. She died on May 27, 1918, in Berkeley, California, at the age of 82, and was buried in Oakland, California.
