Jane Ann Sexton was the daughter of Henry Youmans Sexton and Roxa Adams. Jane Ann married Franklin James Tillotson on December 16, 1847 in Brunswick, Medina County, Ohio. They had nine children.

In 1852 Franklin and Jane Ann moved to Duplain, Michigan. Jane Ann's father, Henry, and brother, Charles, had already moved to Duplain in 1850. Jane Ann and Franklin were instrumental in founding the town of Elsie, Michigan which was named after their daughter Elsie Amelia Tillotson, the first white child born there.

Franklin and Jane Ann moved their family to Will County, Illinois in November 1865. They settled on a farm near the town of Goodenow. Later they moved into the nearby town of Crete.

After Franklin's death, Jane Ann spent a few months in Elsie with her relatives. She died at her home, in Crete, after several weeks of intense suffering. She is buried with her husband Franklin, her son James Francis Tillotson, and two of James's children who died as infants.
