My Great Grandmother- Princess Leia (I Mean Mary Ada Arnett)

I have known for quite some time that my great-grandmother's name was Mary.  It was only a few years ago when I first saw a picture of her.  I was quite amuse by her hairstyle.  At the same time, I was so happy to finally be able to see what she looked like.  It took me quite a while to put her picture down. 
The 1880 census reveals her parents to be William & Nancy Hill.  I found this interesting because I have some cousins by the last name of Hill on my mother's side of the family.  It also shows that she had two brothers.  One was named William Oliver and the other was named Pleasant.  Some of these names may sound familiar.  As you will see as time goes on, William was a popular name in my Dad's family line.  Also, Ilau named one of her daughters Mary.
In the 1910 census (you've seen this one before folks) we find Mary married to her husband William.  As if things weren't confusing enough, she had to go & marry a William adding to the William's in the family line.  I guess you can't help who you fall in love with.  
The 1920 census (yes, I've posted this one before too) David has arrived & Ilau has flown the nest.  GG Mary is still married to William, although I will not go so far as to say happily because...
The 1930 census shows her to be married to Fred McIntyre with a step-son.
Official records reveal that GG Mary was born in February 1877 & died March 24 1935.
I am not sure whether she was buried or cremated, but a headstone was placed for her at the Mount Shasta Memorial Park in California
