    Notes 
    • Working Notes

      Jane's date of birth is provided by the 1837 Darwin/Bland "Bible" Record; her date of death inferred from the settlement, in 1791, of the estate inherited from her husband.

      Many secondary sources give Jane's maiden name as Wilkerson/Wilkinson -- but we have not yet found the primary source for this name, and do not know if it is correct. See: Wilkinson, Wilkerson,...or Clodhopper?
