NoteThe1947 Troy History tells that Jane was the daughter of Conrad Misener and Elizabeth Wells, and presents us with little else. After that, finding evidence amounted to locating associated family names. See notes for the marriage of Morris Conrad Hendershot and Mary Jane House.

Marriage information for Peter and Jane Eliza has not been found. Marriage and death information for son Morris indicates that the couple at least initially spent some time in Beverly Township, for Morris was apparently born there. By the time of the 1861 census, however, they are in Ancaster and the family is shown as Methodist Episcopal, which was the denomination of the Troy church. They have with them three children:

Morris C. age 9
Oscar 6
George 3

The couple are still in Ancaster in 1871. George is missing from the list of children, but they now have with them daughters Lucinda 6 and Melissa 1.

By 1881, they are in Saltfleet Township and they have with them a son, Edgar D., age unclear, but the 1891 census in Barton Township shows him as age 19.
