According to a family bible, my great-grandfather, Jacob Elvin Brown, married Mary Jane Jesse on March 21, 1892. They lived in Ogle County, Illinois, and had three children. Jacob Elmer was born in 1893, Lydia May in 1895, and Ralph Emerson in 1897.Mary Jane died on September 3, 1898, at the age of 23.
Mary Jane was born in Kentucky.The closest census match is in Cumberland County.There is a Mary J Jessee, age 3, in the 1880 census.
Unfortunately I have been unable to locate a birth, marriage, or death certificate for Mary Jan.
Does anyone have additional information about Mary Jane Jessee Brown?Thanks.
