'Mary' and sons are next hh to Cash and Mazie McDonald who were her father-in-law and his second wife. This 'Mary' is thought to be Millie E. Jackson. Helen Thompson Strange points us to the gravestone inscription for Joseph McDonald which says:
"Joseph McDonald
1853 - 1876
Husband of Millie Jackson McDonald"
and Millie's obituary which mentions son Henry. And then Henry's 1957 death record names his parents as Joe McDonald and Millie Jackson. (Texas Deaths, 1890-1976 at familysearch.org)

Researcher Helen Strange says "I checked the obit on Millie Elmira Jackson Mixon it is dated March 14, 1935. It does not show James McDonald as a surviving son.
