Jane was born in 1830.[1] [2]

Jane married William N. Harris on 20 July 1848 in Walton County, Georgia.[3]

Although Jane's husband William left her and their son to join the Gold Rush in California and never returned, she doesn't seem to have suffered financially from his absence. In the 1860 Census, at age 28, she reported owning no real estate, but had personal property worth $1800. Also living in the household was John Harris, age 10. The household included 3 slaves (a 20 year old black female, a 2 year old black female, and a 1 year old black female). On the slave census, the owner's name is given as William Harris (Jane's absent husband) even though he had not been in Georgia for more than 10 years.[4][5]

She died in 1892. [6]
