!CENSUS:1830 Rutherford Co, NC pg 458 w/Jesse MORGAN age 20-29 (1800/1810) * No other women of proper age to be Mary in household, perhaps her death date of 1831 is off, she may have been dead by 1830, a woman age 20-29 (born 1800/10) is listed with Jesse, and his 2nd wife was born 1802, so this seems to indicate Mary died prior to 1830, OR the 1830 census was taken a little late;
