|Birth: ||Feb. 19, 1830|
New Jersey, USA
|Death: ||Jan. 31, 1905|
Jane was one of 7 children born to Joshua and Hannah Pough Shaw. There are some discrepancies surrounding her place of birth. Census reports list Ohio, her return of marriage lists New Jersey and her obit lists Tippecanoe County, Indiana. New Jersey would be the most logical because she would have had to have provided the information for the return of marriage document and her older brother was born in New Jersey.
Her siblings were: James, Aaron, Amos, Nancy, Ann and Mellicent Shaw.
Jane married Aquilla Townsend, son of Nathan and Nancy Williams Townsend on March 23, 1862 in Livingston County, Illinois. He died Sept. 4, 1884 after being hit by a train. She later married the widower of her late sister, Mellicent, Daniel Townsend. They married in Pontiac, Livingston County, Illinois on Dec. 6, 1894. Daniel was the son of Nathan and Nancy Williams Townsend and was born in 1826 in Pike County, Ohio. He died November 17, 1895.
She joined the Methodist Episcopal Church at an early age.
