♥ MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDMOTHER ♥
Jane was born July 20/22, 1846, in Liverpool, England to George H. Humble and Mary Ann Gates.
She came to the United States around 1865. Part of her family remained in the midwest but Jane, along with a brother and sister, migrated to Meadow Creek, Millard, Utah.
In Utah, she met and married Joseph Thomas Brown. They had eight children while there:
Thomas Humble Brown
Mary Ann Brown
Sarah Ann Brown
Eva Francella Brown
William George Brown
Joseph, Jane, and family moved to Idaho in 1879, coming in a wagon train with the first group of settlers to the Rockland Valley. Only five of their eight children had survived to make the journey.
They homesteaded along a creek about two miles south of the present town site of Rockland. Joseph and Jane would go on to have five more children in Idaho:
Henry Able Brown
Anthony Stevens Brown
Jane was a loved and respected member of the community, serving as a practical nurse and mid-wife for many years.
She passed away on July 10, 1921, in Rockland, Power, Idaho. She is buried next to her husband in Fairview Cemetery.
