Susannah Jones

F, ID# 559, (1822-1882)
     Susannah Jones was born on 14 June 1822 at Troy, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario. Various dates have been given for her birth; most agree on 1822. However, the month & day vary based on different interpretations of the age on her tombstone*.1,2,3 She was the daughter of James Jones and Hannah Goodale. She married Thomas Clement, son of William Clement and Jane O'Brien, in 1842.1,4 She died on 3 April 1882 at Beverly Twp, Ontario, at age 59.5,6,7,4 She was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.8

*Cemetery transcripts give varying ages for Susannah: 68 yrs 9 mos 20 days making her birthdate 14 Jun 18136 and 65 yrs 4 mos 20 days making her birthdate 14 Nov 18165. I believe it reads 59 yrs 9 mos 20 days making her birthdate 4 Jun 1822. All census records and her death registration agree with 1822 as her year of birth. Note that 1813 is prior to her parents' marriage.
