Origin

Mary is Tom's "saintly" cousin. She helps Tom memorize his Bible verses, and has memorized enough herself to receive two Bible prizes in Sunday School. Even when Tom's at his most incorrigible, she can usually find something nice to say on his behalf. She's the antidote to Tom's poisonously annoying brother, Sid, for she acts out of genuine affection rather than malice. She lives with them and their aunt, Polly, in St. Petersburg, Missouri.

Notes

Although many sites mention her last name as being "Sawyer," this is never stated in the novels (although she is definitely a cousin of Tom and Sid's). She, like Polly, never has a last name given.
