Amy Johnson Crow, on her blog No Story Too Small, has challenged her fellow bloggers to post 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. This is week nineteen.
My great-great-great grandmother Jane Lloyd was born in 1813 in Ireland. Her parents were John and Margaret (Glover) Lloyd and Jane was one of nine children.
Jane married James St. John on April 17, 1833 in Brock Township, Ontario.
By the 1851 census, the family had grown. Living in a one-and-a-half story stone house, Jane (38) and James (39) were at home with Philip (18), John (17), Margaret Ann (15), James (13), Maria (11), Eliza (9), Rebecca (7), Mary (5), Catherine (3), and William (1).
The 1861 census shows the family living in a two-story stone house in Brock Township. Jane (48) and James (49) are there with John (26), James (21), Mariah (19), Eliza (17), Mary (13), Catherine (11), William (9), Wesley (6), and Rebecca (4).
Jane passed away on April 19, 1864. James outlived her by decades, passing away in April 1904, at 92 years of age. They are both buried in the St. John Cemetery in Sunderland, Ontario.
