This is correct depending on the month taken of the census. Douglas and Ivor were twins. Harvey would have been 1-yr old. But this is the Mary I'm looking for.
The 1911 census (Moose Jaw Saskatchewan) lists her (Mary Brown) as age 26

Just checking:

On the 1916, Souris, Manitoba

Edward Moody, 35
Mary, 32, b.
Martin, 4
Douglas, 2
Ivor, 2
Harvey 2

Sorry - finger slip, Harvey was 1. I was in the middle of cooking!

I'll correct it

Do you have a death for her? There might be something on Findagrave or an obit.

Nothing on the Manitoba Marriage index  :-\

I believe she was from near Castle Douglas, perhaps Auchencairn. I visited a sister of hers in Auchencairn when I was a very young boy in 1965. It might be possible that Mary Jane Brown was from Auchencairn.

Do you happen to remember the sister's name?

The 1901 has Margaret, Elizabeth and Agnes

289   In loving memory of Robert Brown, who died at Barchain, 18th Nov'r. 1889, aged 42 years. Jane Brown, his wife, who died at Barchain, 27th Nov'r. 1913, aged 59 years. William Calderwood Brown, their son, Pte. 1/4 K.O.S.B., who died of wounds at 53rd casualty clearing station, Palestine, 20th April 1917, aged 32 years. Alexander Brown , their son, who died at Lincoln Villa, Castle Douglas, 11th Feb'y 1957, in his 81st year.

Thank-you for this. The Mary Jane Brown I'm looking for died in Winnipeg Manitobe in 1966.
I'm really quite impressed with all the help with my search.

I've just found an online tree that has her born Dumfries. I'm not sure how reliable the info is though. I'll keep searching.

The perfect question. I always thought she was from Auchencairn. I had visited an Aunt there in 1965. In the mists of time, I was very young and I've forgoten my Aunt's name. I'll check with the other two cousins. One of my cousins tells me, that a related family member to Mary Jane Brown (perhaps a nephew?) was a Dr. Henry Jarvis (Jervis?) living in Creetown. He had a surgery in his home. My cousin met him in 1981 and she believes he was in his mid 80ís then. He died later that year.

And again....that was the perfect question.



How sure are you that she was from Kirkcudbrightshire?
