Agnes Rider Jarvis was born in 1826. She was baptized in Salcombe, Devon on July 30, 1826. Agnes was the daughter of William Jarvis and Peggy Rider. She moved to Prince Edward Island in 1845.
On Dec 3, 1846, Agnes married her cousin Joseph Prowse. Agnes's mother Peggy was the sister of Joseph's mother Agnes (Rider) Prowse. Joseph and Agnes were married by a Baptist minister named Silas Rand, after whom one of their children was named.
Agnes and Joseph had 13 children, two of whom died in childhood. They raised their family on a farm in Lot 33 (Brackley, PEI). Following Joseph's death, Agnes lived with her youngest son, Phillip.. She was living in Charlottetown at the time of her death at the age of 81, on June 6, 1907. She was buried in the Sherwood Cemetery.
↑ 1901 census says July 12, 1827, but this is incorrect, as she was baptized on July 30, 1826. Perhaps it was July 12, 1826?

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Agnes:
