There are a few options for daughters on the 1870 census for District 7, Rutherford, Tennessee
Also found on the 1870 census for District 9, Rutherford, TN
Mariah is listed as a servant.
Because it looks as though the slaves are listed in family groups, I believe Matilda, 12; Mariah, 8; Martha, 6; and Margart, 3 are all sisters. (Why aren't they all listed in order of ages oldest to youngest?) There are only a hand full of women who could have given birth to these girls. The hard part is narrowing that list down to one.
