Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden
MARY TENNESSEE LANE MOTSINGER
Mary was born on December 26, 1873, the daughter of Elizabeth Hooper and James H. Lane and lived in McCabe as a child.

On September 10, 1890, she married John E. Motsinger at the home of her parents in lower Agua Fria. It was reported about the wedding ceremony: "The house was too small so the bride and groom stood on the porch, and the people stood in a semi-circle in the bright sunshine to witness the occasion. The bride was elegantly dressed in white, and the groom was dressed in a very pretty black suit."

Later Mary married a man named Mayginnes.

Her mother, her sisters, Virginia Lessard, Jessie Edwards, Melissa Schornick and Martha Enright, and her niece, Elva Breckenridge, are also represented in the Rose Garden.
