MARY ANN VAN STONE was born on 1 Feb 1858 at Ontario, Canada. Her birthdate is clear on the Ernest Butt record. The 1861 and 1894 census date agree. Her marriage record shows her to be two years older. However, the birthdate of her husband appears to be incorrect on that record as well. The Fraser date appears to be drawn from the marriage record. She appeared on the census of 1861 at Wawanosh, Huron, Canada West, Canada. She appeared on the census of 1871 at Wawanosh East, Huron North, Ontario, Canada.

She married CHARLES BUTT SR., son of JOSEPH BUTT and ANN WINN, on 23 May 1877 at Colborne Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada, at the age of 19. They were the parents of seven surviving children, 4 girls and 3 boys.

She and CHARLES BUTT SR. appeared on the census of 1894 at Bay County, Michigan. The 1894 Michigan State Census also lists a Josephine, the same age as Joseph. This isn't supported by the definitive genealogy in the Ernest Butt inheritance record. Since that genealogy otherwise matches the census, the addition of Josephine in the census is assumed to be an error.

She and CHARLES BUTT SR. immigrated from Canada to the US in 1890, Son Charles listed 1890 as the year he entered the US.S4 The Van Stone family had a history of Huntington's chorea (see The Van Stone Family Curse). Mary was choreic three years later, in 1893, at age 35. Mary's illness likely had an extremely negative effect on youngest daughter Caroline. This lead to family scandal as described in The Importance of Being Ernest.

After ten years, Mary died of Huntington's Chorea in 1903 at Pontiac State Hospital, Pontiac, Oakland County, Michigan.
