Are you sure your Mary did not die as an infant?

I see little point in trying to do any more on this subject until lizmik comes back and responds to our questions.

Hi,

OOPS sorry,should be Martha Nixon,they were twins,born 1840 Leeds,parents Eli Nixon b.1807,d.1849; Mary Nixon nee Gibson b.1811 d.1851,

With it being Martha Nixon & not Mary that is now being looked for is the following from familysearch the correct census details? Link here: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SPMK-NYP

Hope this helps.

As OP is looking for Martha, not Mary - possibly an idea to change title of thread while possible.

1851 census ref for Martha HO107/2320 folio 1173 pg 10
1851 census for siblings HO107/2319 folio 860 pg 3
1841 census for family as Nickson HO107/1343/3 folio 27 pg 2
