Jane Dunlop

#63
***Michael John Stewart's 3rd great grandmother***

Jane Dunlop was born 18 Apr 1843 Dundonald, Ayrshire, Scotland.

Jane Dunlop was the daughter of James MacDonald Dunlop and Jane Brown.

While I have seen other researchers with the name "Mary Jane Dunlop" I have only seen records with "Jane" or "Jane B".

Jane Dunlop married Amos C Pottruff on 3 Mar 1864 at Saltfleet, Ontario, Canada.

Amos Pottruff died in 1878 and Jane married James Shaw in 1882.

Jane died in Ontario on 6 Sep 1921.

The children of Amos C Pottruff and Jane Dunlop include:

Agnes Levina Pottruff

Maria Annie Pottruff

Clara Celista Pottruff

Rosie Jane Pottruff

The children of James Shaw and Jane Dunlop include:

David Samuel Shaw

Gladys Edna Shaw

Ada Bell Shaw

mtDNA

K1a4a1 based on the 23andMe test of Michael John Stewart, descendant in direct maternal line.

Autosomal DNA testing:

My husband Michael John Stewart is a direct descendant and has tested at 23andme.

I would be interested in hearing from other descendants of who have tested autosomal DNA at 23andme or FTDNA.

If you haven't tested yet, but would like to know more, you can read my post about autosomal testing for genealogy HERE
