Mary Jane Tucker

Mary Jane Tucker married Martin Whiteway.

Their children included:

Nehemiah Henry Whiteway

Update on Jan 1, 2017

I was working on a theory as to the parents of Mary Jane Tucker. One possibility was George Henry Tucker and Mary Ann Leith. There is a birth record for a Mary Jane Tucker in 1854, and census records show Mary Jane Tucker with her parents in the 1861 , 1871 and 1881 census.  The problem here is by 1881 she should have been married in Newfoundland, not with her parents in Sorel, Quebec. 

The Mary Jane Tucker, daughter of George Henry Tucker and Mary Ann Leith died in Quebec in 1919, so I'm pretty sure this isn't her.

I think its likely she was born in Newfoundland, and I am having trouble finding records for her.

I hope that 2017 is the year I figure out the parents for Mary Jane Tucker!
