Jane's maternal grandparents:
Margaret Cox (1775-1822)

Jane married John Leverton 6 July 1869 in Houston, Harris County, Texas. My little German grandmother was Jane's daughter-in-law and she said she admired her mother-in-law and said she was a fine Christian woman.

Jane passed away from a stroke in 1910.

May songs of the angels welcome you and guide you along your way. May the smiles of the martyrs greet your own as darkness turns into day. Every fear will be undone and death will be no more, as songs of the angels bring you home before the face of God.
