  • Notes 
    • Mary married Dix R Hobart in 1882 according to the 1900 US Fderal Census. In 1900 the Hobart's had nine children living with them. At some point between 1900 and 1910,she seperated and divorced Dix. According to family lore, fearing for her children's safety, Mary (Tuffley) Hobart, then in her late-thirties devised a plan to remove herself and nine children ranging in age from age seventeen to five months old at the time of the 1900 census from the intolerable circumstances of abuse. She spent days furtively packing the children's belongings and hiding them under their beds. Then, in the middle of one night she must have been both dreading and dreaming of for weeks, she snuck out of the house and into the barn to hitch the wagon to the horse. One can only imagine the fear awaking Dix with sounds eminating from the process. She then returned to the house and awoke the children begging their silence. She quietly spirited them out of the house back to the barn each carrying their own belongings. is difficult to comprehend the level of fear as she slowly pushed the barn door open to the creaking, screetching groaning sounds that used to be so familiar to this agrarian generation. One wonders, did she move the buggy slowly out of the barn or did she take of like a bolt? At what point in the journey from the hell of home to the security of her father's house did she feel that sense relief and release? Did her mother and father know of her plan and help her plan or were they stunned to see Mary and the children?

      In 1910 Mary is shown living with her four youngest children with her father Henry Tuffley and her brother Edward.
