Death: Sep. 27, 1857

Jane Tunnard was born in Donington, Lincolnshire, England in the approximate year 1812. She married Thomas Storey. She and Thomas had nine children while in Donington. Thomas, a farmer, was killed in 1852, after being thrown from a cart, when the horse pulling it became frightened and ran.

After Thomas died, the oldest son, Tunnard, emmigrated to the United States. Jane and the rest of the surviving children followed him within a year or two, settling initially in Delaware before continuing on to Illinois. The family settled in Peoria County, Illinois, but within a few years, Jane became ill and passed away from breast cancer. Her children, ranging in age from 5 to 19 years, were then taken in by relatives and the good people of Peoria County.
