This is the wife of Jay Gano (0bit previously posted). She was my gg grandmother.
Jane Ellis, daughter of Charles and Mary Ellis, was born on November 14, 1837, in Milford, Otsego county, New York; and died at the family home in Frankfort, Marshall county, Kansas, at 6:30 a.m., Wednesday, September 25, 1912, aged 74 years, 10 months and 14 days.
The deceased was four years old when the family moved to Cattorangus county, New York, where she grew to womanhood, one of nine children. She was married to Mr. Jay Gano on February 20, 1856, in Little Valley, Cattorangus county, where they resided until November, 1869, when with her husband and two children, she came west. The family located in Frankfort, Kansas, and lived here for forty-three years - in the one house in the west part of town.
She is survived by three children, Miss Lina Gano of New York City, E. J. Gano of Lincoln, Neb., and George Gano of Frankfort, Kansas, all of whom, together with one brother of the deceased, J. T. Ellis of Nebraska, were present at funeral services. Mr. Gano passed away last November.
The deceased was a most estimable lady; quiet and unassuming in manner, and highly repsected in the community. The family have the sympathy of all in their great loss.
She had been a great sufferer for over a year, following heat prostration; but always bore her sufferings patiently and quietly. Everything possible was done for her relief, but all in vain, and the end came early Wednesday morning.
The funeral servies were held at the family home at 3 o'clock. Thursday afternoon, September 26th. The services were in charge of Rev. E. M. Paddleford, pastor of the First Methodist church, and were attended by many old friends of the family as well as a large number of our citizens, who gathered to show respect to one of our oldest and mosty highly respected residents. The interment was in the Willow Hill cemetery.
