The marriage certificates will give you father's names, so you would need to purchase either the Jacobs/Coleman marriage certificate or the Jacobs/Wright certificate, or both if you want to be 100% sure you have the right Mary Anns.

Have you followed both Mary Anns through the censuses? Sometimes you can be lucky and find elderly parents with them.

Hi

Fortunately there is a copy of the MC on a public tree ...

Mary Ann who married George Wright in 1860, her father = Thomas Jacobs
