      Info from Jason Holliston:

      Spouse notes:
      According to the 1860 New York census records, we find Mary Lees
      Houliston living with Andrew O'Neill Jr. and his wife Adaline
      Houliston O'Neill on the O'Neill family farm in Lisbon, New York.
      She was then 66 years of age. Most likley she is buried in the private
      O'Neill Family Cemetery or the White Church Cemetery. No doubt her
      husband, Andrew Houliston, the patriarch of this Houliston family in
      America, had passed away by then. Mary Houliston is listed in the
      census as having no real estate, but good personal wealth. No doubt
      the money she reported was what she would have after the family farm
      had been sold and Andrew's estate settled.
