About Mary Boggs Cabell

First wife of Derosey Carroll Cabell, Sr. Her parents were Colonel Elmer I. Otis and Agnes Reid Boone Otis. She was the fourth child of ten children, and her mother was the granddaughter of famed frontiersman Daniel Boone.

She married then 2nd Lieutenant Cabell on 8 Feb 1888, at Fort Davis (Jefferson Davis County), Texas, and shortly afterwards they were reassigned to Fort Meade, South Dakota. She died right after giving birth to their only child, Mary "Marie" Cabell. Three years later, her husband, then Captain Cabell, married her younger sister, Martha Mary Stanislaus Otis. Martha raised infant Marie as her own (Martha & DeRosey also had children of their own). Marie Otis Cabell was 19 years old when she died. Marie was a Catholic, as well as her parents and siblings, and following her death, her husband converted to Roman Catholicism. He would reach the rank of Major General before retiring in 1920. Young baby Marie would go on to marry and raise a family of her own.
