Mary Katherine SIMON, daughter of Joseph Simon and Anna Kutina, was born 26 April 1872 in Chicago, Illinois.

She was the second wife of Jonas Tombaugh (1854-1932).

For the first few years after their marriage, they lived in a sod house on the rugged prairies of Kansas, rearing a family of seven children in addition to two children from Jonas' previous marriage.

By 1900 they had moved into a nice wood-framed farmhouse in Pleasant Township, Smith County, Kansas.
