It is very possible, we have no info. She was married to Francis Quinn and had 6 children with him. One of the children was my grandfather Cornelius James Quinn. She left her husband when he was a young child. We have been unable to find out any further info on her. The only thing we knew, was she was barried in a very small cementary in Providence, RI. We believe she may have had other children after this husband.

Interesting. I think they are living right near me in Riverside, he is working for Standard Oil Co. building the refinery here. Look in the 1910 census of East Providence for Cornelius J. Francis is b. Ma. and I think I know who Jane was also but will persue it further. In 1920 Cornelius and his brother Clarence are in St. Andrews boys school in Barrington. By 1930 I think Jane is in the State infirmery in Cranston. No Indian blood so far!

There was also two daughters, Clara and Gladys. The other son Ernest also went to St. Andrews. My mother has a picture of Jane only, when she was married to Francis but it is not dated. She also has a picture of Francis and his son Cornelius dated 1925 and we believe she was no longer with them at this point. Cornelius is my mother's father and he passed at 89 year old in 1999. He was born in Webster. Who is it that lives near you in Riverdale?

Riverside R.I. just north of Barrington where the boys went to school. Gladys is in an all girl catholic school on Long Island St. Michaels Home, Mamorneck, Westchester Co. in 1920 N.Y.Did Jane remarry? I can't find her in 1920. Also having trouble with both parents in 1900. They married about 1903. Webster is central Massachusetts about an hour north of here. I'll look there!

I think it is your Jennie age 17 b.R.I. in the 1900 census Stoughton Mass. House of Mercy with a daughter Alice b.1899. This is a house for unwed mothers to go to have their babys. We need to find her marriage to Frank Quinn, about 1902or3, it will list both parents, any suggestions as to where?

I really don't have any more information on her but would love to know more. My mother has a nice picture of her and she was a beautiful woman. My mother remembers going to a small cemetary with her mother somewhere in Providence, RI, but we don't know the name of the cemetary.

Clara lived in Barrington accross the river from the school when my mother was a child. Clara husband's name was Rudolph

Yes, my mom is visiting with me today, and she says that is it. Do you know if there is any writing on the gravestone?
