Maria and Annie had a boarding house in Cambridge, Mass in 1897, where Cornelius and Annie contracted small-pox and died. Maria was also ill, but not with smallpox, and recovered. I haven't been able to find Maria in the 1900 US census.

In 1907, Maria was living with her son Robert.

In 1910, she said she had 3 children, 3 living. It is difficult to say which 3 of the children named in Andrew's will were living in 1910 - Robert was one, and perhaps Addie.

Maria died at age 92, in the Cambridge Massachusetts 3 Aug 1913.
