Looks like the first wife may have died after Mary Ann was born.

FamilyTree on Ancestry shows Stephen married several times after the death of Sally Gabbard. He married about 1842 to Nancy Howard. He married third to Amanda Lakes, 18 Nov 1852, Rockcastle Co, KY - although it appears she did live until 1860, and about 1870, he married for a 4th time to Rebecca Davis. Apparently he married another Nancy prior to 1880.
