In 1851, Mary was 28 and in when she died in 1858 she was 33, so born about 1824.  This cant be correct if she married in 1834

1844 - 1909 Nancy Mather 65 65 The Nancy Mather that married James Bowen at Bolton, St George in 1867 was the daughter of Hannah of Edgworth.

1842 - 1842 Peter Mather 7m 7m 1841 Ann Crompton 1876 John Mather John does not have a verified Lancashire birth record.  This is because he was born in Boston, USA.

2 Oct 1876, another Elizabeth Mather (daughter of Henry Brew) married William Kirkmam, a stripper and grinder at St John's, Bolton. They were widow and widower, so cant be this Elizabeth.
