Hi Debra,

I don't want to add another variable, but I wonder if her maiden name was Blaney?  I see Blaney and Delaney in Lynn, Mass, and I see Blaney in the St. Stephen area in NB. I don't see the surname Laney in either of those places.

Just a thought,   L
Hi Laurie,

Blaney is certainly possible. I do see Mary Jane Laney or Mary Jane Delaney on multiple documents which appear to be associated with this person (my 2G Grandmother). I also see a Mary Laney (age 8) in the 1861 Candian census in the household of James & Abbie Laney living in St. George, New Brunswick. Would love to break though this brick wall.
