She married James Ford in 1876 (can't find them in the IL Marr. Index) and had 2 children.
Married Jessie M. Anderson about 1895.
Married M.r Wadley after 1920.
1910 MO census - Oregon Co, Highland twp, p 73 (April):
Anderson, Jesse M. (head) - 38, m1st 15 yrs, b MO, par b TN/MO
. . . . . Mattie (wife) - 50, m2nd 15 yrs, 4 ch/2 liv, b Mo, par b IL/TN
Jolliff, Allie (niece) - 4, b AR, par b IL/MO
Ford, Willie (step-son) - 18, b TN, par b TN/MO
In 1920 she was 61 and living with her son, William Ford, but she is listed on the census in his household as Mattie Anderson.
Source of birth/death dates: tombstone, Jolliff Cemetery:
Mattie A. Anderson Wadley, Oct 1858 - Jan 1929.
There was also a Jessie M. Anderson in the Jolliff Cemetery:
b Oct 1874, d Dec 1918
This Jessie could have been Mattie's son. However, she did not have a child named Jesse with her in 1910. And she seems to have married Anderson after Ford.
It's strange that she had 2 children with James Ford, but was buried under the Anderson/Wadley names. I don't know if there were any children from those relationships.
I got an email from Fredia who says her gr-grandfather, Jesse M. Anderson, ran off to Arkansas from Missouri because he had gotten in some kind of trouble in Missouri. He died in 1899 in DeQueen Ark. (she doesn't know his date of birth). We don't know if it was the same Jesse that married Mattie.
