Note:  The marriage record claims she is 20, but she was only 17.  Also, her name was simply Mary Stringer in the record, not Mary Ann.  A second marriage record was available which claims 11 Jul 1841 as the marriage date, which is likely when the banns (similar to engagement) were announced

Note: Name on the headstone is Rose H Busby. While it may seem logical the H stands for Hannah, her christening record claims Rose Anna.  Perhaps the H is for her first husband, Henry Hodge?  She is buried with her 3rd husband John, the only husband I have a record she had children with.

FYI:  Southport is a large seaside town in the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton, Merseyside, England
The ship "Dakota" was built the year the family sailed to United States (1875):  The Liverpool and Great Western Steamship Company, known commonly as the Guion Line, was a British passenger service. Two years later, in 1877, the Dakota shipwrecked near North Wales (no loss of life).
