Merry Christmas everybody!
Sarah Jane Griffith was born 1813, Millicent Ireland, d/o Sir Richard John Griffith and Maria Jane Waldie. About 1825, bored with school, she eloped with an estate gardener, Robert Cooke and was disowned. The couple probably married in Ireland but they fled to Brockville, Leeds County, Ontario where 5 children were recorded in the Anglican Church records there. About 1840, Robert Cooke died and Jane, destitute, farmed her 5 children out to Robert's relatives in the area. She then left Canada for somewhere in the USA with an American man, married him and had more children in the USA. Name and location unknown.
I am hoping some other researcher will pick up on this story as theirs!
