Mary was not of age when her father died in 1810, and her uncle Francis was appointed her guardian. She may have joined other members of Francis' family in Feliciana Parish LA.
Given that she was not married in 1810, but had 4 children by the time of her husband's death in August of 1819, she probably married within the next year or so. Presumably the marriage took place in Georgia, but no record has been found.
I believe this to be the Mary Higginbotham that married Charles Carter. Charles' brother George married Martha Higginbotham, first cousin of Mary and daughter of Francis. Charles died in 1819; Mary married (2) John Flynn, 19 Mar 1829, in Clinton, East Feliciana Parish LA [I have also seen this marriage as having taken place in Amite Co MS]
The 1830 East Feliciana Parish census does have:
Mary is said to have died 20 Jul 1833, East Feliciana.
