According to her death certificate Eliza Jane Doan(e) was the daughter of John Doan(e) and Betsy Hubbard. Eliza Jane was born 3 Feb 1826 near Niagara Falls Ontario.
Although there are plenty of suitable "John Doanes" in the area at that time none are listed as having a wife named "Betsy" and none list a child "Eliza Jane".
Eliza Jane is also occasionally listed under the maiden name "Jane Hubbard" and "Jane Lang" on her children's documents.
Eliza Jane Doan married David E HAMMOND about 1845 in Lincoln County Ontario, She died in 1916.
Since Eliza Jane is given 3 different maiden names Doan/Hubbard/Lang I suspect she may have been illegitimate or was orphaned young and was raised by others.
Few records of that period survive and this remains my brick wall.
