Mary Ann Steves

F, ID# 722, (1832-1859)
2nd great-grandmother of Faye Louise Doyle
     Mary Ann Steves was born in 1832 at Ancaster, Wentworth County, Canada West.1,2 She married John Misener, son of William Misener and Margaret Miller, about 1849. According to Violet Jones Broder, Mary Ann caught pneumonia after putting on an apron that was damp because she had used it to cover the butter churn.3 She died on 6 July 1859.4,5 She was buried at Stenabaugh Cemetery, Ancaster Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.5

Research Note: Her daughter Sophia's death registration2 says her name was Sarah Jane Steves, but her daughter Mary Ann's funeral home record6 says Mary Ann Steves. The 1851 census shows Mary Ann as the wife of John Misener. Her granddaughter Violet Jones Broder claimed that Mary Ann Misener Jones was named after her mother; this further supports the belief that her name was Mary Ann Steves.
