In early childhood (about age 3) Jennie became wheelchair bound due to spinal disease. She received no public schooling, but cultivated her mind and gained fame as a writer of Gospel Hymns. The publishers often refered to her as "The Fanny Crosby of the West". She wrote upwards of 3000 hymns.

After the death of her mother in 1902, she lived with her older sister Eliza Ann (Mrs. Jonathan Ulrey) in South Whitley, Indiana.
