Born and lived in Dumfriesshire.  Migrated to Ontario, Canada with her children after the death of her husband Irving Neilson in 1853.  I have nothing on her prior to 1841.   

Thank you!

Thank you, Phillip ~

They are named as her parents on her Findagrave memorial.  I was hoping to find documentation.  There is a record of a Janet Beck, born to them in 1812.  I suppose that could be her.  Were the given names Janet and Jane/Jean interchangeable in Scotland.  I haven't seen Jane referred to as Janet anywhere.
