Jane Hamilton Hursha (Harsha/Hareshaw/Haresha)
Jane is an enigma to the Missouri Kelsay family.
I have the information listed below.I am looking to verify this or disprove itI am also looking for parents.
Jane Hursha Kelsay died in KY, apparently she never made it to MO.However, it's conceivable that Mary HARESHA SIMPSON might have moved to MO to be near Jane's family. (She was alledgedly abandoned by her husband, Simpson, for accidentally poisoning his favorite horse.)
Jane and James Kelsay's son William and daughter Mary Jane both lived in MO. I don't know about their other children.
