||There is this obituary that may be her's, from the Times-Picayune, 6 May 1856:|
On Monday, 6th inst., at 12 p.m., Mrs. Mary C. McMillan, in the forty-ninth year of her age. The relatives and friends of the family are respectfully invited to attend her funeral This Afternoon at _ o'clock from her late residence on Philip street, between Plaquemine and Coliseum.
||6 May 1856
||New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana
- She went by Barbara and Mary.
The three of her siblings who died in December of 1817 all apparently died on board a ship, during the passage from Amsterdam to the US; see their death certificates. According to the certificates, the "Deponent does not recall the name of the ship."
On 1 Dec. 1828, she applied in Parish court to be separated from her husband Charles Fields because "the said Fields constantly refuses to make any provision for her or their said children and that when he is in a state of drunkenness he abuses your petitioner in the most vulgar and brutal manner"; the full petition is recorded under her husband.
She later attested that he died, aged 35, in 1834.
Wedding certificate, which is falling apart, but which I assume to be her's:
"This certifies that M. . . McMillan of the City of New Orleans, in the State of Louisiana and Mrs. Mary Field of the City of New Orleans in the State of Louisiana were joined together in Holy Matrimony this 31st Day of May in the Year of Our Lord 1838. By me, Wm. M. Curtis. Minister of the Gospel, M.E. Church. In Presence of J.E. Graff (Gross?), Pame(?la) Ross, Gary W. Ross."
In 1850, she went to the Recorder's office of Births, Marriages, and Deaths in NOLA and registered the deaths of her father and siblings who had died since their immigration. There is no mention of the death of her mother; see the entry for her father for one example, of which I have an original.
