Eliza Jane JOHNSON
Eliza's gravestone says 1832-1930. In 1860 she was listed as Jane Linn (Ginn?), 44, living with Uncle John Ginn in Moultrie Co, IL. The census also said she was insane and suffering from congestion.
Following the death of John, she continued to live with his children and is buried on their family plot with a matching gravestone.
Who were her parents?
7/9/1870 Was she the 35 year old servant living with the Isaac Keys family in Springfield? The wife Alvina Keys was 40 and born in Ky, the rest of the family were born in IL. Is there a connection?
1880 Recorded at age 50 and living with Robert Ginn and sisters as their cousin.
6/2/1900 She was living with the Ginn children as a lodger, her age was 65.
5/21/1910 That year she was listed in the census as a cousin to Robert Ginn and his two sisters. She was 56 (should be nearer 76).
1/10/1920 That census listed her at age 86 and she was a boarder with Elizabeth Ginn.
Her birth year changed from census to census but she was always born in Ireland.
