Record in Chatham Marriage Register: Marriage Book No. 1, Page 81:

Mary Ann was born in Oct. 1844 and died in Durham, NC on 5-10-1901.  She is buried with Joseph at Woodlawn Cemetary.  I "think" Mary Ann's parents might be Bryan and Carey Martindale of Moore/Chatham.

Joseph enlisted in the Confederate Army on April 12, 1862.
    Pvt. Joseph S. Maynard (Maness) served with his brother, William Judson, in Co.

Mrs. Maynor Dead
She Died at Her Home on Randolph Street
Late Yesterday Afternoon
      Mrs. Mary E. Maynor, wife of Joseph Maynor, died at her home on Randolph Street, about 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. She was stricken with paralysis some time ago and added to this she was suffering with a complication of diseases. These caused her death.
      The deceased was probably little more than fifty years of age and was well known to the people living in that part of the city. During her sickness she stood her suffering bravely and with patience. She left a husband and eight children, four sons and an equal number of daughters.        
      The funeral service will be conducted from the residence this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock by W. H. Cunninggim, pastor of Main Street Methodist Church. After the funeral services the remains will be interred in the city cemetery.  The friends of the family sympathize with them in their trouble and sorrow.

July 7, 1917
      Mr. Joseph Maynor died quite suddenly at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George High, yesterday morning. Mr. Maynor was seventy-five years of age, having celebrated his seventh-fifth birthday on June 11. He was a member of the Memorial church.

      The funeral services will be held at the home of Mrs. A.A. Woods on Peabody street and will be conducted by Rev. Harry M. North. The interment will be made in the Markham cemetery on Holloway road.
      The pall bearers will be Messrs. John W. Pope, J.R. Pace, Lewis Wilkerson, S.D. Scalf, T.M. Pendergrass and A.M. Stanford. The floral will be representatives of the Webb camp of the confederate veterans, of which he was a member.
