Anna Marie Elsie Drees was born in Daykin Nebraska about five years after her parents immigrated to America. Family and friends called her Mary.

It is not known how or when the Drees family met the Bringewatts, but marriage would bind the families together. Mary's marriage to Heinrich August Bringewatt was the third of three marriages between the families. Two years earlier, Herman Drees (Mary's first cousin) married Minnie Bringewatt (August's sister). And two years before that, Anne Drees (Herman's sister) married Henry Bringewatt (another of August's brothers).

August and Mary had seven children.

Sometime around 1923, August and Mary moved to Garden City, Kansas. Mary died three years later - their youngest child was only one at the time.
