Mary Jane Day (1840 – 1902)
We have traced back a number of generations, but have not been as successful as we would like with Mary Jane Day. She was born 4 Jan 1840 in Georgetown, Brown Co, Ohio to Joseph Brannen Day and Mary Shultz. Mary Jane married William Lee Day on 3 Nov 1863.
Together, they had three children by 1870. However, by 1880, William was married to his second wife and had another child. We assume William and Mary Jane were divorced as Mary Jane was still alive. She shows up in the 1990 census at the age of 59 with her daughter Carrie and her husband James Crawford.
The question is – what happened to her after 1900? We haven’t been able to find a death record, obituary or cemetery record for her. We recently found a possible death date of 1902 that we are trying to confirm.
If anyone can help, please leave a comment.
