Biography

Jane was born in 1834 in Onondaga County, New York[1] and lived in the area of Jordan[2] and Camillus[3] until she passed away 23 January 1912.[4] She was the daughter of Jared Whiting and Susan Cornish.

In 1850 in the town of Elbridge[5], Susan Whiting (misspelled/indexed as Whitney) age 52 born in Connecticut was living with Mary age 20 born in New York, Frances age 18 born in New York, and Jane age 16 born in New York. The family next door[6] includes (her brothers) Heman Whiting age 27 born in New York, his wife Rachel age 23 born in New York, and (Jared) Wilson Whiting age 23 born in New York.

A special term of the New York State Supreme Court was held at Syracuse on 8 Nov 1854 and tried on 28 Nov 1854, determining that a partition of land could not be made without great prejudice to the owners.[7] The plaintiffs were Heman C. Whiting Jared W. Whiting, Frances L. Whiting, and Susan Whiting; the defendants were Archimedes Stephenson, and Susan E. Stephenson his wife, Mary H. Whiting and Jane Whiting.[8] Based on this decision, the 23 Dec 1854 Syracuse Standard advertised a Referee’s Sale of Real Estate[9] to be held in February 1855 in regards to the inability to agree on the partition of 99 acres on lot 59 in the town of Elbridge. The property was sold at auction on 3 Feb 1855, and was purchased by Heman and Jared for the high bid of $7305. It included 99 1/2 acres land on Lot 59 in the town of Elbridge beginning at the northwest corner of land formerly owned by Benjamin Carpenter and later Aaron Austin then running north, east, south and west, and excluding a 24 foot wide strip of land on the east used as a lane.[7]

Susan Cornish Whiting died in March 1855[10] and is buried in the Jordan Village Cemetery, along with Jared Whiting who died in 1845.

On 22 Jun 1855 in the town of Elbridge, H. C. Whiting and J. W. Whiting were living next door to each other. Jane, along with her sisters Mary and Frances were living with her sister Susan Elivra and her husband Archimedes Stevenson and their children in Elbridge, next door to Daniel and Eunice Sands and their son George in June of 1855. Jane and her siblings were all born in Onondaga County.[1]

George Sands married Jane Whiting on 2 Oct 1855.[11]

Jane and her husband George purchased 49 acres in lot 32 in Elbridge from her sister Susan and her husband Archimedes on 1 April 1856.[12]

Jane's sister Susan Elvira Stevenson died in Adrian, Michigan. Her death certificate identifies her parents as Susan Cornish and Jared Whiting, both born in Connecticut.[13]

In 1860, Jane was age 25 living with her husband George Sands age 25 born in New York and four year old son Emmett also born in New York.[14] From this, we can conclude that George and Jane were married sometime between June and December, 1855.

On 1 April 1863 Edwin Sands and his wife Emily sold 20 acres in lot 32 in Elbridge to Jane W Sands for $1000.[15] This land was described as beginning in the center of the highway between lots 32 and 32 then north one degree east twenty chains to Thomas Stevens southeast corner then west along Stevens ten chains and thirteen links then south one degree west twenty chains to John Rickhard north line then east to the place of beginning.

In the 1865, Jane, George, and son Emmett were in the household with George's parents Daniel and Eunice Sands.[16] In the 1870 census, Jane, her husband George, and son Emmett were living in the town of Elbridge.[17] Daniel and Eunice were next door. In the 1875 census, Jane, her husband George, and sons George E and Guy were living in the town of Elbridge.[18] At this point, son Emmett is known as George E, or George Emmett.
