Maria (Oliver) Rich
Very little is known about Maria except that she seems to appear in the 1880 census residing in New York City. Listed as head of household and age ninety, her older sister Rachel Oliver - two years her senior. According to this census record, she was born about 1790 in New York to parents who were natives of that state. We can assume that since her sister Rachel is listed as single and aged 92, that their maiden name was Oliver.

Also included in this household is Robert Buchan, speculated to be the son of James Buchan and his first wife Jane McClure. He was a soap manufacturer along with his cousins Stephen and Thomas Rich.
