    Notes 
    • Records do not seem to show which McReynolds that Annie was married to; however, through a process of elimination of the McReynolds living in Sabine Pass in her age group, Robert Arthur is the only likely candidate. He didn't marry Rena Plummer until 1891, five years after the tragedy.
