Jane was born at lot 5, concession 8, in the Gore of Downie Township and lived there until her marriage. She became a well known resident of Stratford after her marriage.[1]

Although she did travel to the Yukon with her husband for a time, she and her son, William, also lived with her sister, Fannie, and brother-in-law, Bill Jeffrey, during that time.[2]

Her husband, a doctor, worked for the Canadian Northern Ontario Railway as the line was being built in the Timiskaming region, north of Sudbury. Jane wrote prose and poetry so in 1910 and 11, during their time in Northern Ontario, she wrote several pieces that were published in the Stratford Herald. On May 4, 1911 the Herald published On Showshoes in Northern Ontario and said, "The Herald is glad to publish in this issue another well composed sketch of life in Northern Ontario by Mrs. W. N. Robertson, Gowganda. The former Sketches From Algoma delighted Herald readers who will peruse with interest the following description of snow shoeing in the great woods of the North Country." Her poems included Toilers in the Wilderness, Nemo Lake, Temagami Forest Reserve and In New Ontario.

She died suddenly at her home at 124 Hiawatha Rd., Toronto following a stroke. Her exact date of death is not known but she was interred in Avondale Cemetery in Stratford on Dec. 1, 1936.[3]
