Rebecca was a daughter of Abigail Delight Huntley and Jacobus "James" Billington.

She married 5 August 1823 (1) Jesse Mason, by whom she had one son, George Sterling Mason; her husband Jesse died within a year afterward.

On 1 March 1827 she married (2) Patrick Maloy in Ohio, but he died within a year; they had no children.

She married 7 October 1830 at Norton, Medina, Ohio to (3) Salmon Warner; their first daughter Harriet Delight was born 9 September 1831 at Coventry, Portage, Ohio.

Over the next eight years, Orpha, Salmon and Amos were born at Ohio and Illinois. After settling at Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois, a son, James and also twin sons, John and Daniel were born and died within one year. James lived 2 days and the twins, less than five. A daughter, Lucinda, was born in October of 1843 and lived only 10 months. All these babies were buried in Nauvoo.

Before their migration to Utah, Samuel Bent was born in Nauvoo and Mary Rebecca at Van Buren County, Iowa.

By the time they settled at Willard, Box Elder, Utah their children, including George, who was then 28, numbered seven. George S. Mason found a bride the next year, just a month before his mother died.

At her death, Rebecca was buried in the Willard Pioneer Cemetery. Upon the death of her husband Salmon, in 1870, her body was removed to be re-interred alongside him in the family lot at Willard Precinct Cemetery, which had been established northeast of her first resting place. She is in grave No. 2, directly south of Salmon.

Even though raised as the son of Warner, Rebecca's first son, George Sterling and his decendants retained the Mason name.
