Mary Jane was born about 1839. Mary Jane Harden ... She passed away about 1857.
I believe that Mary Jane Harden was the first wife of my GG grandfather, Larkin Griffith. My Great grandfather, William Uriah Griffith, was born in 1857, so I assume that Larkin and Mary Jane were married about 1856. MJ does not appear with the family in the 1860 Bradley County, Tennessee census, but neither does William Uriah. Larkin served in the Civil War and married Margaret Davidson in 1865. William Uriah was not living with his father's family in 1870, but with his grandfather, William Leander Griffith.
I assume that Mary Jane died around the time of William Uriah's birth, but can find no proof of the marriage to Larkin or of her death.
